Having met passive resistance from workers against “quarantine” and house arrest up until now, the fascists threaten us with emergency measures, i.e. implementing “the state of emergency” in big cities and in the whole country. Obviously, such regimen will allow the fascists to carry on the behest of the Tsarist general Trepov, i.e. “Do not spare bullets!”
Yes, it’s best to fight the fascist emergency with our own proletarian emergency, we have to respond to the fascist white terror by implementing red terror. But we’re not quite there yet. Continue reading
The “lethality” of coronavirus COVID-19 is being trumpeted by every media today. The purpose of this whole inflating hysteria surrounding the virus is obvious: to sow fear among the workers — i.e. implement ideological terror (Latin terror — “fear, dread”). In order to do this, small bits of information, minimum objective facts and maximum subjective interpretations are reported. Continue reading
The end of the thief is the gallows. That’s what people say. And farmers have long noticed that if a timid sheep is chased into a corner for slaughter, it bites and lashes at you.
It seems that the freedom-loving Italian people have had enough of the fascist “quarantine”. There are signs that the workers of France are also coming to their senses. One can only wish that the revolutionary awakening of the working people of these countries occurred as soon, as strong and as organized as possible. So that the French and Italian bourgeoisie could be defeated and buried in a coffin for good. Continue reading
The bourgeoisie loves their underage children, seeing them, first and foremost, as heirs and successors of the capitalist profiteering. Therefore, the children of big bourgeois are carefully guarded from any dangers and hardships, for them, with their parents’ money, with our labor, the best living conditions are provided.
These conditions, among other things, include a proper, healthy daily routine, recreation and study regimen, maintaining appropriate and scientifically validated (by the Soviet Stalinist science) sanitary conditions. Continue reading
Life of literally every member of our society has recently changed drastically. These changes are related to “quarantine measures” which should suppress the threat of deadly coronavirus COVID-19. Many people have questions about the adequacy of these measures. Indeed, the measures taken by governments of practically every country in the world are unprecedented. The authorities (through the media) explain these measures by indicators (that are not quite clear to the population) of the alleged horrible case fatality rate.
The information from the authorities is highly contradictory, and a number of the reports on current situation contradict the previous reports. In addition, people see at least three contradictions in both the authorities statements and in the alleged “anti-virus” measures: that is
- between the measures
- between the incoming information and the observable facts
- between the proposed measures and the previous human experience.
Editor’s Note. WP: In honor of the 101st anniversary of the formation of the proletarian Red Army, we offer our readers a curious article about the role of I.V. Stalin in the formation of the Red Army and the victory of the young Soviet republic over the White Guards and foreign interventionists in the civil war of 1918-1922. Its author is Klim Voroshilov, one of the outstanding commanders of the Red Army during the civil war, later – Commissar of Defense of the USSR, Bolshevik, member of the Central Committee of the CPSU (b), Stalin’s loyal ally who met Stalin during the heroic struggle of Soviet workers and peasants against the White Guards and invaders.
We do not doubt that what Voroshilov tells about in his memoirs will be a big surprise for the majority of our readers, including those who have graduated from schools and universities in the USSR. Unfortunately, the Soviet people had no idea of the facts reported by Voroshilov in the 60-80s, So it has been quite a while since counter-revolutionaries began to rewrite the history, it was not during Perestroika or after it, but long before that. Without this, perhaps the history of the USSR could have been completely different.
Voroshilov’s story about Stalin is taken from the book Memoirs about I. V. Stalin, which is being prepared for publication by the editorial and publishing department of the Work Path MLWM (planned for March-April of the current year)
A matter of great concern today is the superficial and light-minded attitude towards the approaching world war, which we can see both in the left (first of all, the Bolshevized left) and in the working environment. The Kerch conflict on November 25, 2018 between the Russian government and the Ukraine, the subsequent imposition of martial law in the Ukraine, the mutual pull-up of troops, the growth of all weapons in the Donbass region — all that people seem to be just watching on TV. The guns are already pressed against the ribs of working people of our countries, and we still think that war is something far off, not in our homeland.
Meanwhile, there are many signs of the last stage of the preparation of a broad regional war. No, so far the Ukrainian and Western oligarchies do not officially declare war on Russia, but yes, we are well aware that it is not necessary to declare a war in order to start one. For 100 years, imperialism has shown that wars are more often something to crawl into, than to join all efforts at once in overwhelming fight preceded by diplomatic notes. Regional wars have been flaring up gradually, and the ongoing fifth year of the positional war in the Donbass is just a smoldering ember that can easily be blown to the scale of half of Eurasia.
On November 26, 2018, in the Kerch Strait area, there was a small maritime conflict between the border boats of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation and tug vessels of the Ukrainian Navy. After this conflict and on its formal basis, the Ukrainian government introduced the so-called “martial law” (ML) in the country for a month.
“How should these events be interpreted?” our readers ask us.
First of all, it is worthwhile to remember V. I. Lenin’s words that we all will remain stupid fools in politics, if we do not learn to see the interests of certain social classes underlying these or those events, actions, facts and incidents. This means, in this case, that the maritime conflict did not occur by chance, but was organized by the Ukrainian oligarchy on the instructions of its western “partners” and, possibly, in collusion with a part of the RF biggest bourgeoisie.
There is a big date coming – 100th anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution. But there will certainly be no official celebration on a nationwide scale, neither in Russia, nor abroad. This is not a holiday to make bourgeois authorities happy.
The Russian bourgeoisie has even taken pains to make November 7, 2017 a working day. Not to mention that for many years it has been trying to erase the memory of this great day from the consciousness of our people. It has even invented a special holiday for this – the day of some kind of unity, which, of course, has not become a national holiday, despite the heaps of days off to accompany it.
Question: You call your website workers’ as well as your movement. This causes a question: what about representatives of intelligentsia and other categories of professionals who are not considered workers, though they are far more in number than workers (like teachers, doctors, drivers, engineers, technicians, experts and so on)? Have they nothing to do with your movement?
Answer: The word “worker” in the name of our movement shows that our movement represents the outlook and class interests of the working class, including its core interests.
Working class (proletariat) is one of the two key social classes of capitalist society.
