In 1776, a few wealthy white men wrote the Declaration of independence. And in it, Jefferson, a slaveowner and rapist, stated that all men are born with certain inalienable rights, and that "All men are created equal" (women, non-whites, and the poor don't count). Now, in 2019 nearing 300 years after these words were first uttered, we live in a world where equality is circumstantial, our politics are corrupt, and the founding principles of this empire are exactly the same: exploiting those we see as lower than us, killing brown people with impunity, and using moral principles created during the enlightenment to justify it.
We can, however, reverse this. Restoring a truly fair political system based on Marxist ideology, vanguards, political parties, and the purging of
anarchists reactionaries. This is easier said than done though, and it's all because of Ne'er-do-wells like anarchists or demsocs for not reading Marx or falling in line when we have to kill off dissidents.
So I wrote this. As a call to well-meaning people to rise to the occasion, unite left ideologies across the board for a common enemy: capitalism. Or anti-tankie scum (especially ziq, the arch anti-tankie scum). Identity politics. Historical revisionism. And Sparrows. These three horrid characteristics of our nation can be fixed through communist means. Identity politics, is rooted in most people but can be torn up by enforcing struggle sessions. The Civil Rights Movement of the sixties removed legal discrimination against most people, but ideological discrimination, the prejudice against Marxism, is still incredibly widespread. I am a member of the Communist party and as such experience discrimination on a daily basis. From a passing remark along the lines of "Wait, so you like starving?" to full on discrimination at restaurants just because i brought my Che Guevara T-shirt and started reciting The Communist Manifesto at the top of my lungs.
Historical revisionism, is the bane of Marxism. While at the surface they may seem to be harmless gatherings of people with childish ideologies writing bad alternative history, it soon creates a mess of political chaos, which interferes with left unity. In the United States two main political parties hold power, the Republicans and the Democrats. Together, these parties hold 98 percent of the vote with the only good party, the True Dialectical Marxist-Leninist Party of The People (of which I am the sole member and founder), holding just 1 member. Voters go to the polls, and without looking at names, vote for Capitalism. Not Communism. The lack of class-consciousness will cause the downfall of every revolution. It is more destructive than the anarkiddie, and more crippling than a Left-Com.
Liberals and Reactionaries are people who want a return to "how it was" or want to stop revolution and change or want Marxists to not purge them for refusing Marxism, If any hope of achieving the destruction of the two previously mentioned phenomena, we must destroy the Liberals. Most Liberals do not call themselves such. If you ask someone, "Hello, comrade, what's your political ideology?" and they reply with "Anarchism." or something along those lines, they are either a reactionary or someone oblivious to REAL political theory.
These problems can only be fixed if we unite. The Movement for Left Unity, as I envision it, will be a sprawling group of people that follow many leftist ideologies united under a single banner, Marxist-Leninist, to attempt to bring about the end of the corrupt "democracy" we call home.
This is a short plea. Use and interpret this how you wish.
With all due respect,
A Concerned Marxist
P.S. Fuck Sparrows.
