Let us have another look at how things progress between 1945 and 1991
After the second world war two parallel markets were formed. One formed around USSR and included the People’s democracies, the other comprised the world Imperialist Capitalist market, formed around USA and included all the capitalist-feudal markets.(Note 1)
The fact that USSR and people’s democracies dropped from the sphere of world market of capitalism exasperated the general crises of capitalism which was compounded by their attempt to strangulate the socialist-democratic market through their embargos.
What was the most important factor that was deepening the crises of world capitalist system? It was the building of communism by USSR and of socialism by European people’s democracies, and of building of the ground to start building socialism by the Asian people’s democracies, and thus that these countries were no longer a part of the world capitalist market.
After 1953 and with the change of course in the USSR and peoples democracies towards the restoration of capitalism through all out degeneration this most important factor has been turned into a means of lightening the problems of world capitalist market formed around the USA. The two markets has begun to turn into a single market of world capitalism formed around USA. (Note 2)
After the second world war one of the peoples’ democracies begun to betray the world movement and begun the restoration of capitalism. Yugoslavia. This country, led by Tito and gang, these Trotskyites, begun their restoration of capitalism in 1948, they begun to open up Yugoslavia to USA and other imperial powers and cut off Yugoslavia from the socialist Market. They claimed to be independent of USSR and USA and yet were subservient to USA in all respects. The restorers of capitalism in Yugoslavia, Titoites were outright Trotskyites, and were outright spies of USA/UK!
After the second world war there were other countries claiming to be “independent”, and yet run by bourgeois and feudals, and they were not at all in support of communism- they were in fact busy fighting communism. They were not able to cut off from world imperialist system, did not want world imperialist system to come to an end, for that would mean their own end too, but most certainly wanted the world communism to come to an end!
It is these countries and Yugoslavia that have been supported after Stalin at the expense of building communism in the USSR and socialism in the people’s democracies. It is these countries that led the so called none aligned movement. (Note 3)
Thus this “none aligned” movement whose roots go to 1955 Bandung conference represent this third roaders in relation to the independence of countries and nations, and this “none aligned” movement gets to be supported by the so called communist movement after Stalin, led by Khrushchev, Brezhnev, Gorbachev and Mao and Enver and Kim il sung and Castro, and of course the well know traitor and USA-UK spy Tito the new Trotsky! So much so that “none aligned” take their place of pride in the program of the CPSU under Brezhnev!
All our parties become third roaders after 1953. Inclusive of those that talk a lot of revolution and violent revolution!
Opening up the communist-democratic movement to these and other third roaders can be seen in all aspects of our movement.
After the second world war the fact that there is another way of democracy that is different to the bourgeois democracy with its restrictions of democracy in all aspects of a nation’s, of a country’s life became clear and thus begun a movement for people’s democracy in all countries of the world. All communist parties in the world came forward in defence of democracy, demanding that democracy should be defended and extended and should lead to people’s democracy. This was causing political problems to the so called democracies of the imperialist world forcing them to come out as opponents of people’s democracy, of even bourgeois democracy. Movement for democracy, movement for people’s democracy was progressing all over the world as a means of defending nations’ and countries’ independence and democratic governance. It was a militant program of democracy, inevitably leading to proletarian democracy, this was a program of people’s democracy. This program was totally against the nation and country remaining within the imperialist chain of states, totally against the domination of the country and nation by USA imperialism. This was again compromised through the third roaders, and transformed into program of compromise and preservation of the rule of the imperialists and domination of the USA.
The same happened with the world peace movement! Instead of a peace movement where the defenders of peace and makers of war are clearly separated and exposed, third roaders were pulled into the movement and the whole movement degenerated into a talking shop while the imperialist were helped in their war plans and wars! (Note 4)
Did all these changes after 1953 leading to the dissolution of the socialist market caused a change in the proposals of Stalin regarding the world capitalist market and technique of production of capitalism?
No they did not.
World capitalist market has never been steadied in spite of all the support given to it by the restorers of capitalism, these Trotskyites and even now when the single world market has clearly been established since 1990! (Note 5)
Did it lead to a change in relation to Stalin’s view that defeated imperialist countries, such as Germany would rise and the contradictions amongst the imperialists may lead to a war amongst themselves instead of them all uniting against USSR and fighting USSR – and this was actually what had happened before and during second world war?
Well. Yes and no!
Due to the change in the character of the communist parties all the imperialist countries were run by traitors to their nations. These forces made these countries subservient to USA imperialism-and they were joined by the restorers of capitalism in the USSR and people’s democracies. These imperialist countries have also united around USA to restore capitalism in the USSR and Peoples democracies, and to transform all communist parties of the world into reformist forces and thus to defeat world communism-and they were successful. But this unity was not against USSR that was building communism and people’s democracies that were building socialism, but against USSR and people’s democracies that were actually restoring capitalism and destroying the socialist market and were themselves uniting around USA and seeking USA domination. It is in this period that all countries took part in transferring funds to USA, accepting USA domination, so that it can build an absolutely dominant military power that “no one can stand against”.
It is only after the Greek crises and when Germany refused to do as it was told that contradictions amongst the “western” imperialists have begun to become important. All this Brexit and Trump business is nothing but a reformation of imperial domination relations because Germany is attempting to break through the USA domination. Half-heartedly true, but still contradictions with USA instead of accepting without questioning of USA domination is visible and only nowadays do we see the USA domination (in combination with UK) that was accepted and obeyed being challenged ever slightly so! (Note 6)
After 1953 all economic laws of socialism begun to be undermined and not applied in the USSR and people’s democracies. This has invariably led to outright restoration of capitalism in 1990 (Date of dissolution of USSR: 26 December 1991). In the meantime, until 1990s, this has led to the weakening of the socialist countries, to their unification with the world capitalist market, in the fashion of Yugoslavia-but not exactly like Yugoslavia. This has also led to the dissolution of the socialist market, it becoming part and parcel of the world capitalist market and thus being effected by its general crises-just as Trotsky has wished decades ago.
USSR was such a developed socialist country that its dissolution, and thus the dissolution and full integration of “the socialist market” around it took decades to organise. The none application of the economic laws of socialism and thus inevitable crises of economic life of USSR and people’s democracies, its ever increasing dependence on USA and other imperialist countries, coupled with their political integration to world imperial order was the main reason for the destruction of communism. (Note 7)
USSR and people’s democracies have begun the process of supporting the so called “independent” countries that came to form the “none aligned” movement. A lot of projects that help establish capitalism and thus the capitalist world market was provided to these countries-this was propagated as the infamous “none capitalist road of development”. Thus these countries were provided by means of developing capitalism at the expense of socialist countries and at the expense of building socialism-communism in the USSR and people’s democracies. These countries were thus indirectly able to support the world imperial capitalist order better! These countries were also provided with plenty of armaments by USSR and people’s democracies. Thus world capitalism that was forced to armaments and wars to solve its problems were provided political and material means of war making by the restorers of capitalism in USSR and peoples democracies.
Thus so called socialist countries such as Yugoslavia, Cuba, Korea, Vietnam, and more, Ethiopia, Afghanistan…were all used as a deep pool of expenditure that did not help build socialism in these countries, did not build socialism in these countries, but most certainly helped misuse the potential of our motherland-and people’s democracies- and to their diversion away from building of socialism-communism. (Note 8; 9 and 10)
Was USSR an imperial power between 1953 and 1991? No it was not. It was a power that was busy restoring capitalism in USSR and people’s democracies, and help destroy the world communist movement. It was a power busy getting rid of the second parallel market, the socialist market and organising the convergence of this market into the world capitalist market. All the activities of USSR and people’s democracies (including China and Albania) as well as the communist parties going along with these restorers of capitalism and destroyers of the socialist world market is to be taken first and most of all as activities to restore capitalism and destroy the world socialist market, and thus world communism. It is thus that these activities of these states are not imperialistic (or domination) orientated. It is restoration orientated!
Were the policies of USSR and people’s democracies (including China and Albania) social imperialist policies. Yes they were, but not in the sense that as countries they were imperialist. It was social imperialist in the sense that they were adapters to world imperialism, to world domination of USA (and UK). As traitors to communism and thus to world proletariat! As active participant in the organisation of the domination of the world by imperialism, dominated by USA (and UK).)
(Note 9; due to the fact that USSR and people’s democracies were extremely developed industrially and were such modern nations and the world capitalist market was so narrow, incapable of absorbing the productive potential of these countries in the world capitalist market, in a capitalistic way, that these countries were slowly run down-even then they could not run them down industrially- they, through economic and social means, made life difficult for the people in the midst of all that industrial development, and only when they felt they could really destroy them without much come back and when they needed it to manage the world economy did they took the step to destroy these countries well and good with the cooperation of Trotskyite traitors in power. Take note that even today, even after all the subservient positions, Russian monopolist capitalism is not being accepted into the world capitalist economic relations. For even now, after all the destruction if Russian capitalism is not controlled and kept weak, if it is allowed to trade as a “normal part” of the world capitalist market, it would extremely speedily become a producer of plenty of high quality machines and all sorts of products. The days of Trotsky when Russia, restored to capitalism thanks to a Trotsky government, could be kept as a simple raw material producer and nothing more is no longer doable. Present day Trotskyites, Putin and co., cannot do it however much they may want to! On the one hand world capitalism cannot turn Russia of 140 million into a Norway as a country that is raw material producing and living relatively well, on the other Russia in spite of all the transfer of goods and trained people, all Soviet wealth to imperialists, is still heavily industrial, heavily working class, well trained at that, society. It must be controlled, not allowed to function as a capitalist country “freely”. Even China, this source of cheap products for the imperialist world, this Hilferding’s colonial China that was to feed the imperial world with cheap products, in less than 40 years of utterly and totally dependent development of capitalism that is integrated to the world imperialism is turning into a problem that need to be controlled! They must be saying better leave it on its own, stuck in the past, part of world capitalism but without any integration to the world capitalist system-but than that has been lost.
Here is your Russia, here is your China, and here let us see what you can! Your India is on its way too! World imperialism has “too much” technology and too many possible sources of power-with their nuclear bombs and all!)
(Note 10; the so called space program used to declare the might of USSR must be seen as another means of misdirecting our potentials-together with the so called armament industry. One should also take note of “Hollywood style” “cult of the individual” perpetrated around the astronauts-and through them around the “political leaders” such as Khrushchev. Similarities with the USA’s “cult of the individual” formed through Hollywood, magazines, etc., must be noted. Celebrity culture is indeed the cult culture
(TAKE NOTE: SWINGING 60S OF THE WEST BECAME POSSIBLE THANKS TO SWINGING 50S OF USSR and People’s Democracies)
It should be seen as diversion of the movement away from building socialism-communism not only in the USSR and people’s democracies around it, but also in those so called socialist countries that are supposed to be objecting to them “in a radical way”-such as China. For a study of their history clearly reveal that they all have one commonality: That commonality is the fight against Lenin-Stalin plan of building socialism-communism and an application of Tito-Trotsky method of “building socialism” which is nothing but restoration of capitalism.
It is thus that so called “revolutionary” movements were also used to divert our movement away from proletarian class struggle, from communism, and “their victory” such as in Cuba was used not only to put up a “revolutionary” façade for the outright restorers of capitalism, but also to divert the world movement towards petty bourgeois adventurism. And expenditure in those countries by the USSR and other people’s democracies, by those traitors to communism in collaboration with their traitorous comrades in those countries was declared to be a way of building socialism (a la Tito, a la Trotsky). Many ways of “building socialism” were practised so long as they are opposed to Lenin-Stalin way of building socialism-communism! These “ways of building socialism” were nothing but ways of restoration of capitalism. (Note 11)
The diversion of socialist countries away from building socialism and communism towards restoration of capitalism and thus the division (USSR vs China) and the orientation of socialist market towards world imperialist market, towards re creating one and indivisible world capitalist market (this beloved all powerful market of Trotsky) have helped all capitalist countries to unite around USA(and UK). They have all become subservient to USA, they were and are ruled by national traitors, while socialist countries were going out of their way to become subservient to USA. (Note 12)
Such bourgeois ideas was rarely expressed in our movement! It is now the norm for traitors of all sorts who are supposed to represent our movement)
A) All agreed to accept USA dollar (and UK sterling) as the money with “gold standard”. Instead of USA selling its products to Germany, France, Italy, Japan and others, they all begun producing and selling to USA (and UK)-either through money borrowed from these-through finances provided by these, and/or through the production and trading facilities established by these in Germany, France, Italy and others of Europe and Japan! All was done using dollars and sterlings-which USA and UK could simply print! But all round domination belonged to USA and dollar.
It is thus that USA was able to build bases all over the world and formed armed forces “second to none” and fought wars to defend the imperial system for all.
This system of USA putting in paper and getting dollar (and that dollar being gold denominated-one ounce of gold (28.35grms) being 24 dollars) and buying all that they produced and they built all their productive capacity using dollar from USA, and in spite of all the support given to the imperial system by USSR and people’s democracies while trying to restore capitalism, came to an end in the beginning of 1970s. 20 years at most after Stalin. (Note 13)
(AND IT FOLLOWS THE ROWING 50S IN USSR and People’s Democracies)
That was the end of Brettonwoods and “gold standard” of Dollar. (Imagine how many years the whole world fed USA with goods using that dollar that was to be one ounce of gold equals 24 dollars! It was a nice set up that one prints paper in green, calls it dollar, and they all can’t get enough of it to give you all sorts of machines, raw materials, lands for military bases, soldiers and food. Monopoly is good for some!)
Did the capitalist world, and the world of restorers of capitalism thus put an end to the monopoly of USA dollar? No they did not. It was replaced by what is called the petro dollars, and the agreement that dollar should be the international means of trade and reserve money by all was kept, while the price of gold was to be determined by the market for gold. Take note that the gold market was also monopolised by USA-and UK who holds the gold of many a developing country at its “Bank of England”! (Venezuelans can not get their gold back from England these days! Such is “law abiding capitalism” of the monopolists! Neither can Germans get their gold from USA! Saudis and other oil rich Arab countries loaded with dollars were not allowed to accumulate gold and silver-they were not allowed to buy huge amounts of these in the world market. Dollar is what you will have they were told-and spend it as we tell you!)
This dollar domination is directly related to the domination of all financial activities by USA and hand in hand with them by UK! (Note 14)
Only nowadays are we seeing a half-hearted attempt to put an end to this monopoly of USA dollar and their financial activities. (Note 15)
B) They have been given a monopoly in the control of raw materials (oil is a well known one, but also almost all metals) (this is Mrs. Thatcher’s infamous “our oil and car economy” if you like. Oil from USA/UK; cars from others); they have been given a monopoly in trade of almost all what is called “commodities” (coffee, chocolate, wheat, corn, sugar, orange-juice- etc.,). USA on its own but particularly together with UK, have monopoly in all these things. They control both the production and sale of all these things, or they control the production of these things through their monopoly of the trade in these things. “Metal Exchange” “Commodities exchange” and the “futures” in all these commodities are monopolised by USA and UK, thanks to their monopoly of dollar and fanatical activities all over the world!
Only nowadays are we seeing a half hearted attempt to put an end to this monopoly. And this attempt is again very much part of the changes the whole world system of USA/UK domination, the world capitalist system is going through.
C) They, particularly USA, have been given a monopoly in computerisation. So much so that so called dot com bubble that burst must be seen as a means of transferring funds to USA to establish its monopoly in this sphere. Software monopoly, and the infamous “intellectual property rights” bestowed upon them have transferred quite a lot to USA-I mean what is the real value of all those software companies such as Microsoft? It would be almost nothing without a monopoly agreed by all! This is followed by the monopoly in the “cyber space” that is internet. All those companies such as facebook that would not be worth the paper they are written on is worth the earth! And you shall not find many producers trying to challenge Intel as regards the production of the microchips that make all the computerisation possible! (Note 16)
And take note. You shall not see a single defender of “proletarian dictatorship” “of revolution” “of revolutionary violence” ever touching such unpleasant issue as computerisation that directly relate to the fact of not building modern proletarian socialism-communism either in USSR and people’s democracies or in their own countries. But the talk of revolution is cheap and plenty!)
E) All these monopolies is confounded by the USA/UK’s monopoly of “culture and ethics” through American cosmopolitanism! Talk about “cult of the individual”! This culture revolves around the “cult of the individuals” who become rich and famous thanks to this cult culture! These “celebrities” of art and literature, of media of all kinds; of science and politics, of “money makers”, the rich and famous. Even the military and royalty are part of this. Don’t be surprised if all the spies come out and demand a bit of that “fame” and fortune for themselves!
This culture of gangsters, this culture of murder stories, this culture of “sex, drugs and rock and roll” this outright degeneration of the society where honour and honest work is frowned upon, where war makers are not criminals who are committing crimes against humanity but “heroes” of novels and papers and big screen and small screen…where war propagandists are not criminals committing crimes against humanity but writers and anchor men and all that, where they who make science and technology to produce bigger and bigger, “better and better” killing facilities for the mass murderers pass for scientists, where prostitution is defended by the prostitute as her (and not to forget his) right to choose and anyone who wants to put an end to it is “killed” by the prostitute in defence of her right to be a prostitute (oh yes, that was a part of a TV drama series! Russian prostitute did it! ) Where those who come up with economic policies that starve millions are “honoured as the best economists” where makers of war are “honoured” as peace makers (by say Nobel Prizes)….and all take part in this monopoly of cosmopolitan “culture” and “ethics”, and here too USA (UK) leads the way and dominate their willing, subservient “partners”!
