I also wonder what was the outcome of your courageous statement to the
US military concerning your loyalty that you mentioned in one of your
previous posts. Thanks again.
Yes, . . . feel free to reprint anything I write without reservation.
I was not accepted into the armed forces and given a classification that was
classified. My mother called Washington to make an inquire into the
classification. Mother had forbidden any of her son's to join the armed forces or ever
fight on behave of our government. Mother would deeply anger father.
"Just because your father is stupid and joined the army when he was 15, don't
mean any of you are going to be stupid."
There was no courage involved in refusing to slaughter the Vietnamese people.
The African American people are exceptionally militant but ignorant. Many -
to this very day, feel that they have something to prove to the oppressing
people. They are slaves who have not understood the mechanics of their slavery.
My mother was a religious women and self educated. Later in life she would
return to school and become a nurse. She was very different from the women of
her generation. The world of her and my father was very different from that of
mine. Both of them grew up and matured under Northern segregation. I remember
segregation very clearly and the places we could not go to because they were
for "whites only."
Mother forbid any of her boys from fighting on behave of "the white man." She
would swear on a stack of bibles that she would personally kill any of us who
fought on behalf of the government. My older brother was also drafted and
refused admission into the armed forces. He was beat up in the draft center after
he struck one of the doctors in the face. My younger brothers escaped inquiry
from the government and our entire family was classified as an internal
threat to the government of the United States. In the event of the outbreak of
social unrest the entire family is to be arrested and incarcerated and our
children can never be accepted into the armed forces.
The FBI - Federal Bureau of Investigation, would visit our home seeking
inquiry into my activity and mother would not open the door for them. She would
curse them and threaten to shot through the door if they did not go away. Father
was much more calm and rationale. He would periodically inform the police
department that if any of them shot his boys he would kill the lot of them. I
believe father enjoyed killing and several time I witness him beat up the police.
His status as an ex-solider probably saved his life. Father fought people at
work. I do not mean an ideological struggle. He was the dad of the neighborhood
and shined in his status.
We grew up in Highland Park, Michigan - the epicenter of the auto industry,
and once the most prosperous community on earth. Father did not allow the
police to question us. The rules of segregation was that blacks had to be "off the
streets" after 9:00 PM. Father did not accept these rules. My upbringing means
that I would have been one of Comrade Stalin's most trusted lieutenants -
like Molotov, who after his wife was arrested and jail said nothing and carried
out his task.
It is Molotov - not St. Peter, that guards the gate.
>The Nazis certainly must have thought so since one of their three radio
transmitters that began broadcasting in the early morning of June 22, 1941 was
pretended to be Trotskyist. <
Some of the comrades on Marxmail think that Trotskyism is simply a different
body of politics within Marxism and they are horribly wrong. They have not
understood its evolution from what Lenin called a petty bourgeois trend within
Marxism to open counterrevolution, after 1929. Lenin called Trotskyism a petty
bourgeois trend and spoke of "Judas Trotsky" - Lenin's exact words. Hitler
called Trotsky the commensurate political intriguer whose inner party tactics
should be studied and mastered by the Nazis to split the communist movement.
I do not deny Trotsky role in the October Revolution and the excellent work
he did under the guidance of the Central Committee - the steady hand of Lenin.
I long ago read all of Lenin available in English. Lenin hated what Trotsky
did in the pre October days, revealing the secret plans of the Bolsheviks to the
bourgeoisie - and stated such in public.
There is a material reason why very few African American Marxists are
Trotskyites in the history of the American Union. The black scholar, CLR James was
not African American but came from Trinidad if memory serves me correct. I have
read all his material on the national question and perhaps 80% of his writing
on dialectics and he was an intelligent man, but a fool, nevertheless. His
writings concerning the African American people are an affront and insult to us.
How can a Trinidadian tell us who we are? His arrogance matches his scholarly
The handful of African American Marxist in America with a Trotskyite
tradition are held in contempt by 99.9% of African American Marxist. We spit upon them
because they have understood nothing of Lenin and the Georgian - Comrade
Stalin. In fact they silence themselves in our presence. Opposition to Stalin is
inherently white chauvinist, because of the configuration of material history.
Anti-communism in America is fused with the ideology of white chauvinism.
Stalin was of course rude - according to Lenin. "We want a man with all of
Stalin's qualities except his rudeness." The petty bourgeois ideologists hate
Stalin to a man because their knee was bent and they felt the heavy hand of the
dictatorship of the proletariat and were told to shut up and go to work.
In fact the German Revolution did not contribute to the victory of the
proletariat. Fascism was not a response to the German working class but to
Bolshevism and publicly stated such. The "German Revolution?" On the contrary, it aided
the victory of the bourgeoisie and put an end to hopes for the long awaited
direct revolutionary support from Europe. The NEP helped to rescue the country
from hunger, but it could not solve the real problem of building heavy machine
industry, without which Socialism could not be achieved. Only an organization
of steel, only the greatest political clarity and strict centralization of
all task and discipline of labor offered a glimmer of hope for survival. Could
this be achieved by so-called "democratic" means? This need for an organization
of steel was expressed in the ideological realm.
Because of its cowardice, the petty bourgeois intellectual understood the
victory of socialism on the basis of support for Russia by an insurrectionary
Europe. When hope for world revolution was lost, at that moment when it became
evident that the Soviet proletariat would have to construct socialism on the
basis of its internal efforts, the last revolutionary spirit of the petty
bourgeoisie vanished without a trace and their link with the Bolsheviks were broken.
Crying like little girls the petty bourgeoisie clamored for the preservation
of at least one sector from revolutionary conquest to serve as a base of
reaction. At that time the only forum of struggle available to them was the demand
to "be heard."
They were given their chance to be heard from prison.
The 15th Congress will live forever and its memory is cherish by communist
world wide. "This is what we must do or be crushed," Comrade Stalin stated very
calmly. Over and over comrades rose to their feet screaming "Long Live
Stalin," shouting down the petty bourgeois phrase mongers. For the first time in
world history the question of building socialism in one country was put forth
with breath taking clarity. Socialism in one country meant building an
industrial infrastructure that did not conform to the cycle of reproduction driven by
the unrestricted law of value. From that moment on the "kid gloves" were taken
off. From that moment the petty bourgeois current within Marxism called
Trotskyism - Lenin exact words, entered its last cycle of evolution.
What is the political logic of any petty bourgeois trend? Why did Lenin call
Trotskyism a petty bourgeois trend and write the equivalent of a volume
condemning it for fifteen years? This is not my opinion but what Lenin stated and
anyone can read this for themselves.
Under extreme isolation agriculture was attacked with a vengeance. When ones
back is at the ocean and the enemy demand that "you get your feet wet,"
Bolsheviks dig in. History records that it was Stalin - "that marvelous Georgian"
(Lenin's words) that lead the revolutionary conquest. Our mistakes are legend
and our accomplishments are greater. Lenin said we would pay dearly for our
ignorance and we have paid dearly. History has revealed itself and the bourgeoisie
has momentarily proven to be harsher and more brutal than our conception.
American led imperialism is making the same mistake Hitler made - splitting
its forces and trying to surround the land of the proletariat. The intelligence
agencies in Russia is splitting and contains its own logic. Putin is between
a "rock and a hard place." He is burning the midnight oil.
Vladimir taught us the meaning of insurrection as distinct from social
revolution. Insurrection by definition takes place at the "top." The features of the
new era are coming into focus. The coming onslaught shall wipe bourgeois
property from the face of the earth. Necessity calls for the resurrection of
Stalin. Putin - this representative of bourgeois property is forced to attack
capital in the flesh and warn them - bend their knee. Next the knee of the Russian
petty bourgeoisie is to be broken - not bent. His history - not that of the
proletariat comes to an end. Only Bolshevism can halt the onslaught of
imperialism. This is not a subjective question but a historical configuration we face.
Nothing short of the absolute liquidation of the Russian proletariat will
satisfy the bourgeoisie.
Already the petty bourgeoisie is screaming about "humanism." Talk about
cowardice and a lack of manliness.
Stalin appears in history as a model for revolutionaries, as a mentor for the
weak and wavering; as terror for the class enemy. Here is our inescapable
