“Grab ’em by the pussy”: how Trump talked about women in private is horrifying.”
Now he is American President!
So are many PMs, Presidents of other nations, who are outrightly despicable but had been chosen by the voters and have risen to the highest posts of their countries. In some cases, even though the majority had voted against him/her, like in India (Modi/RSS/BJP managed less than 20% of the total votes or 31% of the total of the voters, who exercised their rights at polling booths). Poroshenko in Ukraine is another example. Even state/province leaders are equally disgusting creatures.
Why such phenomenon, that too, worldover? Why bourgeois or the right wing political parties, who are morbidly anti working class, anti farmers, even anti soldiers rising? In India they are anti Dalits, anti tribes, anti women but managing to grab the state power.
Of course, they all use the unscientific, illogical and defeated ideologies, like religion, caste, national chauvinism, personality cult and all other feudal culture, which are being reproduced on higher scale. Women as commodity & carrier of old customs are glorified on electronic media, especially in TV serials, where their slavery is projected as the great saviors of our old ‘heritage’!
Yes, the reason is simple. The rise of the working class in millions and millions, after the 2008 economic crisis, saw a swing, a reactionary swing. The imperialist capitalism has learnt enough lessons after the Soviet revolution (Capitalism was restored there after 1956 in stages, which culminated in USSR’s disintegration); how to damage & divert the unity and struggle of the working class, the exploited class! How to penetrate their rank and file, how to inject their own leaders or buy the leaders, how to inject their revisionism in their parties and the world revolutionary ideologies!
A section of the working class, peasants, especially the middle class felt that the Left ideology has failed, only the right wing parasites will be able to give them a better life, employment, basic subsistence. A smaller section is bought with money, posts and business facilities, like petrol pumps, gas agencies, head of workers in unorganised sections, Mukhiya, etc! Old bourgeois parties also join this rising fascism. The ruling class, the capitalist class, whose rate of profit was falling dangerously aids this ‘movement’. Terrorism, war are ‘gifted’ tools in their hands to destroy the proletarian movements and usurp a big profit!
Well, the undercurrent is strong as the rising pauperisation of the people, unemployment, homelessness, hunger reducing purchasing power can never be solved by these right wing parasites. They have no solution, except temporary victory over the need of proletarian revolution and raise the profit rate for their masters.
Class consciousness, unity & struggle to overthrow the unjust, exploiting rule is natural. However the revolution is a conscious & planned act by the party of the exploited class, based on dialectical analysis of the present! Victory is inevitable but only question is when? How long will the humanity suffer from the yoke of capitalism and how many more millions of the people will have to sacrifice?
We do not have a revolutionary tide in India or elsewhere. But that does not bar a revolutionary party from doing a revolutionary work; a political work to indoctrinate class consciousness in the working class, uniting them on class line, developing proletarian culture, making them to resist immediate exploitation and oppression economically, socially and politically. In fact its duty to engage in revolutionary political works and resist the fascism, which is among us, in every sections of our society and state.
This preparation and resistance on class line will give us added power, multiply our forces in revolutionary time, will lead us to defeat the hegemony of bourgeois class, private property and eventually help us to establish our own state by demolishing old for once and for ever, an exploitation free society, where a man is capable of exploiting another man!
Workers of the world unite! Long live Socialist Revolution!
