Now we know. US style democracy has come to Iraq

George knows this part of democracy well. He set off a record of inmate deaths while he was governor of Texas. A Bush style democracy would have a conveyer belt of people waiting to be hung and a stream lined system to get the job done quickly.

Welcome to the future!

The New Year and President Zippy

It's the end of the old year and we have a new one to look forward to. I was reading our local Wichita City Paper and noticed their attitude was about like mine. It had 2006, with the six scratched out and a seven drawn next to it. The captions read:
"It's that time of the year when we look back, look forward and spend three months writing bad dates on our checks. Party on."
Let's look back -- Top personality of the year – our own President George Bush.
He reminds me of something I read in the 1970's High Times. They ran a serious of cartoons on Bill Griffith's "Zippy the Pinhead." He ran for president and his slogan was "Am I elected Yet!" He brought up important issues as nuclear fishing and too many cubists in America. After a few episodes he changed his slogan to "Re-elect me." That got him elected because people at the time like stability and re-elect sounded like a good idea.

President Zippy

We weren't at war at the time, so it was all funny - a really stupid clown running the country with the mind of a five-year-old. Now flash forward 2006. We are at war in Iraq. Also in a few other places such as Afghanistan, but the casualties and real bungling in Iraq seems to dominate the news. So President Zippy has ignored the Pentagon and all his advisors and nearly every politician alive to expand the war with more troops and more money.
Now it's not so funny anymore. There doesn't seem to be much hope for change. That means more of the same. Our only hope is that the pinheaded clown will run our government into the ground until the whole system collapses in whole or part.
One silver lining is the possibility of Maoists winning gains in Nepal and parts of India. The Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) seems poised to force a new government there.
We lost two Zippy the Pinheads here in Kansas, during the election, even though we have enough of them left to cause a lot of havoc as they had in the past. Religious fundamentalism causes pinhead like behavior and we have a lot of fundamentalists left in Kansas. I hate to be so pessimistic, but I think most of them will stay here next year.
Here at home we will get a new downtown stadium. The city didn't want it, so a few rich fat cats ran a petition drive to put this on the ballet and spent millions to convince the voters that this was a bargain. We pay only one cent per dollar for just one year (in the history of Kansas, there has been plenty of temporary taxes past, but none have ever really been temporary). This new arena is causing a mountain of headaches since it means re-arranging the whole down town area. Most of the businesses to be moved cater to the poor and operate on a shoestring budget. Many can't afford to move and will shut down.
The estimated cost on this project has gone way up. There's no reason to believe it will bring in extra revenue. Many young people voted for this hoping it would bring some good musical groups to Wichita. But the reason groups don't come here is that the locals can't afford ticket prices.
The rest of the years major poop can be found in any magazine, such as Time.
There have been some good movies this year, but since I can't remember their names, they can't have been that good. I enjoyed House, so I can remember at least one new show on TV. I think Dr. House reminds me of myself sometimes. Music – I don't remember any groups that came out this year that really impressed me, except maybe Atomic Swindler (if they actually started this year). The same can be said about songs. Books- again, I can't think of any impressive books that I read from this year. That sort of makes this a sucks year. But then again, I tend to listen to really good music and read great books, years after they were released. Lord of War, stands out in my mind as a fantastic movie, but it came out last year. The same can be said of Liberal Virus: Permanent War and the Americanization of the World: Permanent War and the Americanization of the World by Samir Amin. And I still love American Idiot by Green Day. So next year I'll make a list of great works of art that came out this year.
So have a great New Year's Party. Drink till you puke. Set off dangerous fireworks. Piss off your neighbors. It's a tradition. And the next day, get ready for a year that's just like the last one.

Article by Samir Amin on Maoism and its contributions

Mr. Amin and I had articles printed in Contemporary Marxism, about 1986, on Democratic Kampuchea and the invasion of that country by Vietnam. He has written and published several books (more than my two). He is an excellent author so I am reprinting this:

Article by Samir Amin On Maoism and its contributions:

Comments by MAOIST_REVOLUTION contriabutor:
"Article is somewhat convoluted and imprecise. Plus, at points/places incorrect. But still deserves to be read.What Maoism Has Contributedby Samir Amin This essay was prepared for the June 9-10, 2006 Hong KongConference: "The Fortieth Anniversary: Rethinking the Genealogy and
Legacy of the Cultural Revolution" sponsored by the China Study Group, Monthly Review, and the Contemporary China Research Center of
City University of Hong Kong. It was translated from the French by Shane Mage."
The article:
The Second International's Marxism, proletarian-and-European-centered, shared with the dominant ideology of that period a linearview of history—a view according to which all societies had first topass through a stage of capitalist development (a stage whose seeds were being planted by colonialism which, by that very fact,was "historically positive") before being able to aspire to socialism. The idea that the "development" of some (the dominating centers) and the "underdevelopment" of others (the dominated peripheries) were as inseparable as the two faces of a single coin,both being immanent outcomes of capitalism's worldwide expansion,was completely alien to it.But the polarization inherent to capitalist globalization—a major fact because of its worldwide social and political importance—challenges whatever vision we may have of how to surpass capitalism.This polarization is at the origin of the possibility for largeportions of the working classes and above all of the middle classesof the dominant countries (whose development is itself favored by the position of the centers in the world system) to go over to social-colonialism. At the same time it transforms the peripheries in to "storm zones" (according to the Chinese expression) in naturaland permanent rebellion against the world capitalist order.Certainly, rebellion is not synonymous to revolution—only to the possibility of the latter. Meanwhile, reasons to reject the capitalist model in the center of the system are not lacking either,as 1968, among other things, has shown. To be sure, the formulationof the challenge advanced at a certain time by the Chinese Communist Party—"the countryside encircles the cities"— is by that very fact too extreme to be useful. A global strategy for transition beyond capitalism toward global socialism has to define theinterrelationship between struggles in the centers and the peripheries of the system At first, Lenin distanced himself somewhat from the dominant theory of the Second International and successfully led the revolution in the "weak link" (Russia), but always believing that this revolution would be followed by a wave of socialist revolutions in Europe. This hope was disappointed; Lenin then moved toward a view that gave more importance to the transformation of Eastern rebellions into revolutions. But it was up to the Chinese Communist Party and Mao to systematize that new perspective.The Russian Revolution had been led by a Party well rooted in theworking class and the radical intelligentsia. Its alliance with the peasantry in uniform (first represented by the Socialist Revolutionary Party) ensued naturally. The consequent radical agrarian reform finally fulfilled the old dream of the Russian peasants: to become landowners. But this historic compromise carried within itself the seeds of its own limits: the "market" was, by itsown nature, fated, as always, to produce a growing differentiation within the peasantry (the well-known phenomenon of "kulakization").The Chinese Revolution, from its origin (or at least from the1930's), unfolded from other bases guaranteeing a solid alliance with the poor and middle peasantry. Meanwhile its national dimension—the war of resistance against Japanese aggression—likewise allowed the front led by the Communists to recruit broadly among the bourgeois classes disappointed by the weaknesses and betrayals of the Kuomintang. The Chinese revolution thus produced a new situation differing from that of post-revolutionary Russia. The radical peasant revolution suppressed the very idea of private property infarmland, and replaced it with a guarantee to all peasants of equalaccess to farmland. To this very day that decisive advantage, shared by no other country beside Vietnam, constitutes the major obstacle to a devastating expansion of agrarian capitalism. The current discussions in China largely center on this question. I refer the reader to the chapter on China in my book Pour un Monde Multipolaire(Paris, 2005) and my article "Théorie et pratique du projet chinoisde socialisme de marché" (Alternatives Sud, vol VIII, N• 1, 2001).But in other respects the going-over of many bourgeois nationalists to the Communist Party would necessarily exert an ideological influence favorable to the support of the deviations of those whoMao termed partisans of the capitalist path ("capitalist-roaders").The post-revolutionary regime in China does not merely have to itsc redit many more-than-significant political, cultural, material and economic accomplishments (industrialization of the country,radicalization of its modern political culture, etc.). Maoist China solved the "peasant problem" that was at the heart of the tragic decline of the Central Empire over two decisive centuries (1750-1950).I refer here to my book L'avenir du maoïsme (1981), p. 57. What is more, Maoist China reached these results while avoiding the most tragic deviations of the Soviet Union: collectivization was not imposed by murderous violence as was the case with Stalinism, oppositions within the Party did not give rise to the establishment of a Terror (Deng was put aside, he returned...). The aim of an unparalleled relative equality in income distribution both between the peasants and the workers and within each of those classes and between both and the ruling strata was pursued—of course with highsand lows—tenaciously, and was formalized by choices of develop mentstrategy contrasting to those of the U.S.S.R. (these choices were formulated in the "ten great relationships" at the start of the1960's). It is these successes that account for the later developmental successes of post-Maoist China since 1980. The contrast with India, precisely because India had no revolution, thus has the greatest significance not only in accounting for their different trajectories during the decades from 1950 to 1980 but still for those characterizing diverse probable (and/or possible)perspectives for the future. These successes are the explanation for why post-Maoist China, committing its development thenceforward toits "opening" within the new capitalist globalization, was able to avoid destructive shocks similar to those that followed the collapse if the U.S.S.R.Just the same, Maoism's successes did not settle "definitively" (in an "irreversible" fashion) whether China's long-term perspectives would work out in a way favorable to socialism. First of all,because the development strategy of the 1950-1980 period had exhausted its potential so that, among other things, an opening(even though a controlled one) was indispensable (cf. L'avenir dumaoïsme, pp 59-60), an opening which involved, as what ensued showed, the risk of reinforcing tendencies evolving toward capitalism. But also because China's Maoist system combined contradictory tendencies—toward both the strengthening and weakeningof socialist choices. Aware of this contradiction, Mao tried to bend the stick in favor of socialism by means of a "Cultural Revolution" (from 1966 to1974). "Bombard the Headquarters" (the Party's Central Committee),seat of the bourgeois aspirations of the political class holding the dominant positions. Mao thought that, in order to carry out his course correction, he could base himself on the "Youth" (which, in part, broadly inspired the 1968 events in Europe—consider Godard's movie La Chinoise). The course of events showed the error of this judgment. Once the Cultural Revolution had been left behind, the partisans of the capitalist path were encouraged to go over to the offensive.The combat between the long and difficult socialist path and thec apitalist choice now in operation is certainly not "definitively outlived." As elsewhere in the world, the conflict between the pursuit of capitalist unfolding and the socialist perspective constitutes the true civilizational conflict of our epoch. But in this conflict the Chinese people hold several major assets inheritedfrom the Revolution and from Maoism. These assets are at work invarious domains of social life; they show up forcefully, for instance, in the peasantry's defense of state property in farmland and of the guarantee that all should have access to farmland. Maoism has contributed in decisive fashion to ascertaining exactly the stakes in and the challenge represented by globalized capitalist/imperialist expansion. It has allowed us to place in the center of our analysis of this challenge the center/peripheriescontrast integral to the expansion, imperialist and polarizing by its very nature, of "really existing" capitalism; and from this to learn all the lessons that this implies for socialist combat both in the dominating centers and the dominated peripheries. These conclusions have been summed up in a fine "Chinese-style"formula: "States want independence, Nations want liberation, and Peoples want revolution." States—that is, the ruling classes (of allc ountries in the world whenever they are something other than lackeys, transmission belts for external forces) try to expand their room for manoeuvre in the (capitalist) world system and to lift themselves from the position of passive objects (fated to submit tounilateral adjustment whenever demanded by a dominant imperialism)to that of active subjects participating in the formation of the world order. Nations—that is, historical blocs of potentially progressive classes—want liberation, meaning "development"and "modernization." Peoples—that is, the dominated and exploited popular classes—aspire to socialism. This formula allows an understanding of the real world in all its complexity, and consequently, the formulation of effective strategies for action.Its place is in a perspective of a long—very long—global transition from capitalism to socialism. As such it breaks with the "short transition" conception of the Third International

Chinese reaction to Nepal

Recently I noticed a letter from a Chinese person interested in our discussions of the Nepal Revolution carried out by the CPN(m). from

Is this reaction to a letter for a Canadian forum:

“I am a Chinese I don't understand well about you letter ---I don't know how to enter into the discussion. Could you tell me?

For my view I think the peace agreement will leed Neaple into a republic.But I can't sure about she will transform into a socialist country. That will depend on the struggle of the Maoist and other socialists. I think if the socialist can united together in the context that the old class have been lost it reputation, in this sense may be the socialist will won.

The Winter Solstice

The Winter Solstice is in a few days. It is the traditional time to for pagans, neo-pagans and those who pay attention to the ancient ways for us to celebrate this season without acknowledging the Christian high jacking of this holiday for Christmas. For those of us who are not Christian Merry Winter Solstice.

The return of the sun was known as the rebirth of the sun king.

On the death of Pinochet

The death of Augusto José Ramón Pinochet brought some closure to a person who came to appreciate socialism by reading about Salvador Allende. He was elected as a member of the Popular Unity coalition. His Socialist Party was further to the left than the Communist Party of Chile.
He was elected president and I began to realize that socialism could be democratic. I liked many of the ideas of socialism, but I also liked the ideas of elections and freedom of speech and so forth. Allende respected these things. My own government did not. When Pinochet took over in a violent coup, Time magazine reported the deaths of 20,000 people. Now they say it was 3,000, so I guess 17,000 people came back to life. By 1980 all but two countries in South America were under some form of military dictatorship and some where even more murderous than Pinochet. However, it’s hard to imagine why a musician as Victor Jara, needed to be killed as a political subversive. Over the years I have seen the right wing of capitalism support such monsters as Francisco Franco, the murderous dictator of Spain. All this was to counter communism and as I was told as a kid, communism took all your freedom away.
So naturally I wondered why we had leaders who supported dictators who opposed any freedom to stop communism. Maybe it wasn’t about freedom at all. Maybe it was about economics.
The character in my new book held similar misgivings about our government’s anti-communist sentiments:

“Each week, I flipped through the glossy pages of Time magazine and saw what issues were popping up in the world. In 1970, the people of Chile elected a new president, Salvador Allende Gossens, a Marxist. Since the sixth grade I had taken an interest in South America. There were many times as a child that I had wondered who lives in those countries towards the bottom of the globe and what they do. Most Americans never talked about those places vary much. They weren’t mentioned on the news often.
When Allende got elected, many media pundits and politicians in high places, including President Richard
proclaiming democracy dead in Chile. A Marxist had been elected and the whole country had gone communist. This came up one day in my government class.
“Is it true that Chile is now a communist country?” a student asked our government teacher, Mr. Daly.
“That’s right,” the tall, dark haired teacher, in his 40s, told the student. “The people there have elected to become communists,”
The class was very large and held in an auditorium that could also serve as a theater, with a floor that leveled upward and chairs with desk tops that folded in.
This was supposed to be the first time a Marxist had been elected into office. But strangely enough, from what I had read, Allende did not end democracy. Allende did nothing heavy handed to stop the constant attacks from the press and demonstrations organized by rightwing groups. Allende’s Popular Unity government held about 40 to 45 percent of Congress. I began to realize that it might be possible to have socialism with democracy. The idea of democratic socialism began to intrigue me. I read everything I could on Allende, much of it from Time magazine. Allende was an important political influence for me. He seemed a courageous and just leader.
September I was watching the evening news, in my parents’ living room, when they announced that Allende was toppled by a military leader, General Augusto Pinochet. There was news footage of the presidential palace being bombed and it was announced that Allende was dead. Pinochet banned political parties, disbanded Congress and rounded up many predominant supporters of Allende and his Popular Unity government. Many of these people were executed. This meant the bitter end of both Allende and Democracy. Time reported about 20,000 people killed by the new regime. As
I read the Time article, I sat on my parents’ couch feeling a sense of loss and disillusion.

…….. Nixon and Kissinger could hardly hide their joy at seeing Chile’s President Allende overthrown by the murderous Pinochet. I was beginning to see just how bad a leader Nixon was. I could remember back in 1970 when four students were shot at Kent State in Ohio. The governor had called out the national guards to keep order and prevent turbulent protests. The news media suggested that Nixon didn’t seem to care. He almost seemed content that students protesting him got shot. He seemed to brutally oppose anyone whom he thought was in his way. Nixon may have been the worst US president of the entire century. It was a great moment when he fell.”
_ Memoirs Of A Drugged-up, Sex-crazed Yippie ---Tales from the 70's Counterculture: Drugs, Sex, Politics and Rock and Roll.

My site has many Maoist pictures on it. I found Mao to be more interested in political dialog than other Communist leaders in his time. And what he said is true “political power comes from the barrel of a gun.” I learned that lesson watching what happened in Chile in 1973, How can a real democracy support fascism every where but here. The Weather Underground and the Symbioneses Liberation Army both took up arms believing America would become a dictatorship and it almost did when Nixon stole an election, stopped only by the Watergate scandal.
So vote for one of the two parties if you like. But don’t count on any real democracy coming from this country.

Ding Dong The Wicked Witch, Augusto Pinochet, is dead

Salvador Allende's Last Speech (English translation)

Santiago de Chile, 11 September 1973, 9:10 A.M.
This will surely be my last opportunity to address you. The Air Force has bombed the antennas of Radio Magallanes. My words have neither bitterness nor deception. They should stand as a moral castigation of those who have been traitors to their oaths: Chilean soldiers, titular commanders-in-chief, Admiral Merino, who has designated himself commander of the Navy, even more señor Mendoza, the cringing general who only yesterday manifested his fidelity and loyalty to the Government, and who also has named himself Director General of the Carabineros. In the face of these deeds it only falls to me to say to the workers: I shall not resign!
Standing at a historic point, I will repay with my life the loyalty of the people. And I say to you that I am certain that the seed we have surrendered into the worthy conscience of thousands and thousands of Chileans, will not be able to be reaped at one stroke. They have the power, they can make us their vassals, but not stop the social processes, neither by crime nor by force. History is ours and is made by the people.
Workers of my Nation: I want to thank you for the loyalty you have always had, the confidence you placed in a man who only was the interperter of great yearnings for justice, who pledged his word to respect the Constitution and the law, and who did so. In this final moment, the last in which I will be able to address myself to you, I want you to take advantage of the lesson: foreign capital, imperialism, united with reaction, created the climate for the Armed Forces to break their tradition, that which they were taught by general Schneider which was reaffirmed by commander Araya, victims of the same social sector that today will be be expecting with an alien hand to reconquer the power to continue defending their profits and their privileges.
I address myself to you, above all to the modest woman of our land, to the campesina who believed in us, the mother who knew of our concern for the children. I address myself to the professionals of the Nation, to the patriotic professionals who continued working against the sedition overseen by their professional academies, classist academies that also defended the advantages of a capitalist society.
I address myself to the youth, to those who sang and who brought their happiness and their spirit to the fight. I address myself to the man of Chile, to the worker, to the campesino, to the intellectual, to those who will be percecuted, because in our country fascism has now been present for several hours; in the terrorist assassinations, blowing up the bridges, cutting the railways, destroying the oil and gas pipelines, in the face of the silence of those who had the obligation to behave.
They are in jeopardy. History will judge them.
Radio Magallanes will surely be silenced and the tranquil metal of my voice will no longer reach you. It is not important. You will continue to hear it. I will always be together with you. At least my memory will be that of an upright man who was loyal to the Nation.
The people ought to defend themselves, but not sacrifice themselves. The people ought not let themselves be subdued or persecuted, but neither should they humble themselves.
Workers of my Nation, I have faith in Chile and its destiny. Other men will go beyond this gray and bitter moment when treason tries to impose itself upon us. Continue to know that, much sooner than later, we will reopen the great promenades down which free men pass, to construct a better society.
Long live Chile! Long live the people! Long live the workers!
These are my last words and I have certainty that my sacrifice will not be in vain, I have certainty that, at the least, I will be a moral lesson to castigate felony, cowardice, and treason.

Update on Iraq

President Jalal Talabani was elected as President of the Republic of Iraq under the new Constitution, and thus became the first President of the permanent Government established by the new constitutional order.

From Google News:

TONY EASTLEY: US President George W. Bush doesn't like what he sees in Iraq but the violence, mayhem and lack of security doesn't convince him that a phased withdrawal of American troops is in the best interests of anyone.Mr Bush has been discussing what to do about the war with the British Prime Minister Tony Blair. The hot topic of conversation has been the recommendations of the bi-partisan Iraq Study Group, particularly the proposal that most US troops leave by early 2008.Mr Blair has also announced he's heading to the Middle East to try, yet again, to force a Middle-East peace deal.From Washington, Michael Rowland reports.ANNOUNCER: Ladies and Gentlemen, the President of the United States, and the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.MICHAEL ROWLAND: Unlike their previous joint appearances there was a somewhat sombre tone to today's media conference. Both leaders have seen their political credibility severely damaged by the war and are struggling to preserve legacies that threaten to be overshadowed by the conflict.The Iraq study group has described the situation in Iraq as grave and deteriorating.GEORGE BUSH: It's bad in Iraq, I understand how tough it is there. I talk to the families who die.TONY BLAIR: Yes, it is immensely tough at the moment, and very challenging and everybody knows that.MICHAEL ROWLAND: For those hoping for any indications of how President Bush would respond to the Baker Group's report, it was a disappointing sixty minutes. Mr Bush did put into words the question that's now being asked with much greater urgency.GEORGE BUSH: Do we have a plan to achieve our objectives? Are we willing to change as the enemy has changed?MICHAEL ROWLAND: On the issue of pulling American troops out of Iraq, Mr Bush gave what's been his standard answer.GEORGE BUSH: We want our combat troops out as quick as possible, we want the Iraqis taking the fight. But it's very important to be, as we design programs, to be flexible and realistic. And as the report said, I haven't got the exact words, but it was along the lines, you know, depending upon conditions, I believe that was what the qualifier was. And I thought that made a lot of sense.MICHAEL ROWLAND: Mr Bush says he's waiting to receive similar Iraq studies from the US military and from within the White House before announcing any policy changes, and he stressed the Baker Report was just one source of advice.Mr Blair appeared to give the recommendations of the bi-partisan panel much greater weight.TONY BLAIR: It offers a strong way forward. I think it is important now we concentrate on the elements that are necessary to make sure that we succeed. MICHAEL ROWLAND: One recommendation embraced by both leaders was the Baker Group's conclusion that any solution to Iraq had to be complemented by renewed efforts to forge a wider Middle East peace, particularly between Israelis and Palestinians.The British Prime Minister is planning to visit the region to attempt just that.TONY BLAIR: There is no way that you ever succeed in these things, unless you just carry on trying. And that's what we will do, and one of the things I learned in all the long years that you've followed me in relation to Northern Ireland, that you just, you don't accept that you ever give up. You just carry on doing it.MICHAEL ROWLAND: This has been the approach of the US, Britain, and for that matter Australia, when dealing with the escalating violence in Iraq. But it's a strategy that even the architects of the war now agree needs to be changed.In Washington this is Michael Rowland reporting for AM.

Leave North Korea alone!!

조선 민주주의 인민 공화국을 방어하십시요

There are always naysayer' about Kim Il Jong. While the Maoists oppose attacks on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, they don't endorse the country as a true Marxists state.

According to the Maoist Newspaper Revolution:

"While never a socialist society, North Korea was briefly aligned with what was the world socialist camp. With the restoration of capitalism in the mid 1950s in the Soviet Union, North Korea developed as a country dependent on Soviet social-imperialism.
Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, North Korea has been in a deep economic crisis, and in search of a big power patron—a role filled somewhat now by China—where capitalism was restored after the death of Mao Tsetung in 1976.
Today, North Korea maintains a thin coating of "socialist" symbolism, over what is essentially a feudal monarchy (the current ruler is the son of the original ruler of the country). North Korea is economically chained to world imperialism. And North Korea is the opposite of a real socialist country, where the masses of people increasingly become masters of society in an atmosphere of creative and lively struggle."

It may have it's faults, but it is one of the last Marxist states that have not capitulated to the imperialists and I don't believe they will. One of the TV networks is planning a special on the DPRK and I’m sure it will be the same old McCarthyistic crap this country has been feeding us since the early 1950s. Of course the DPRK is poor. It is ostracized by the entire west. China has been its only real ally and they are a lousy ally for any third world country. South Korea has been its best friend so far. Those people realize that the two countries have to reunite some day, some how. It will not be easy, but it also can’t take place when an imperialist power, The United States (that’s us folks) keeps huffy and puffing like it did before invading Iraq and turning it into another Vietnam style mess. Once again, we don’t don’t know what’s best for North Korea or we wouldn’t be bogged down in Iraq.
So let George Bush, the US, and its puppet journalists just shut up about the DPRK.
