PR opinion – contribution to the discussion: Revolutionary party between the contradictions of imperialism!

Regarding the question of what position to take in this situation, a revolutionary party and a movement in a concrete historical situation around Venezuela, when it is found in the vortex of the clash between imperialists and the imperialist attacks on individual states with the aim of enslaving the people, certain differences in thoughts in the revolutionary movements.

PR believes that unreserved support should be given in the defense of Venezuela, or its people, with all the means from the invasion of American imperialism. It is necessary to put aside the very character of the regime, whatever it was, if that regime is resisting that aggression and enslavement.

Bloody shirts to them!

  Protests against the current Serbian government, regardless of the slogans used, are in their essence part of general protests organized throughout Europe. They are an expression of petits bourgeoisie ideology against their real and imaginary world crumbling down. It is a cry of the European petit bourgeois because his/her privileged world, compared to the “uncivilized rest of the world” is disappearing right before his/her eyes. It is a cry of the Balkan petit bourgeois because the promised world of Europe yet to come is vanishing right before his/her eyes.

Balkan impoverished masses have abruptly faced the destruction of the promised world and most people want to leave this region to go to the “promised Europe”, hoping that this is the only path to salvation. This trend is unstoppable at the moment, until greater crises occur in Europe itself, while “brass drums” can be heard in the background.

Imperialism and the Balkans

shah  After the breakup of the Soviet Union, the attempt of the Western imperialists to establish hegemony and new world order failed. New imperialist centers of the capital concentration have been established. Instead of establishing it's hegemony all over the world, Western imperialism has become a subject of many attempts of subjugation by both supranational capital and ever stronger imperialist countries such as Russia, China, etc. On the other hand, the condition for the survival of the Western imperialism is not to allow the creation of other independent centers of imperialist power, even if it means entering trade or global war with them. That has been a tested tactics of all imperialists during the 20th century for solving their crises with a war export and creation efforts, and also with the additional strengthening of their military-industrial power. We are currently witnessing three basic world processes – an attack on the unity of the Western imperialism in the service of supranational capital which aims to overcome it's own crisis for the purposes of destroying the existing financial system in order to preserve global financial domination and the foundations of capitalism themselves, closure and formation of pacts within imperialist countries among the attacks of the supranational capital and their attempts to split the world once more, and the movement of the masses and their resistance on the global scale, that both supranational capital and leading imperialist countries are trying to control.

Revolution in Yugoslavia

I – Founding and development of Yugoslavia

Zgrabimo_oružje_svi            Yugoslavia was founded as a result of the historical aspirations of its nations for independence from the Austro-Hungarian monarchy and the Ottoman Empire. The pursuit of freedom and unification was especially pronounced in the 19th century with the national intelligentsia, which advocates the unification of all Balkan peoples. The national liberation of the Balkan peoples is intertwined with the interests of the great powers, that is, the interests of the bourgeoisie and the dynasties of the Balkan states, and it is followed by serious conflicts. This national liberation can not be viewed outside the struggle for social liberation.

            The end of World War I led to political turmoil in the territory of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire. The October Revolution and the revolution in Hungary had a special echo among the Yugoslav peoples.

            Over 30,000 Yugoslavs took part in the October Revolution, and a Yugoslav army was formed in the Red Army.

            On December 1, 1918, the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes was created. This was also in the interest of the victorious powers as a refuge against the revanchism of Italy and Hungary, and at the same time as a sanitary cordon against Bolshevism. Thus, instead of a republican, democratic structure, a monarchist and centralist state was created. Nobody could successfully resist this, because only Serbia had an organized army and police.

            Slovenes and Croats immediately realized that they fell under power that was no better than the Austro-Hungarian authorities. Montenegrins and Macedonians were not recognized as a separate nation and simply considered them Serbs. Other nationalities did not have any rights.

            In Croatia, Montenegro and Macedonia there was a growing dissatisfaction with the Greater Serbian oppression, the dissatisfaction that often got rebellious and separatist character.

PR opinion – Protests in Serbia

lanci6  When it seemed that in Serbia everything has completely died out, considering movement of the masses and resistance to the system of oppression, the masses are back on the streets.

  Whether these protests are spontaneous or organized by someone, it is not so relevant now. We are not going to analyze who can be the ‘organizor’. Our goal is to find the cause of this movement, its ideas and forces as well as the results we can expect.

  The main reason for these protests is the bad socio-economic status of the people. Students in Serbia have lost all their hope that life for them here will be any better. Within many ordinary people there is a wish to “fulfill” their life goals in acceptable economic conditions, where they will get the chance to live a decent life, and that dream had been presented to them – that they will live in “European welfare” and in “Serbia with Europen values”. And the students were always ready to accept that neoliberal myth of “happy life”. But now everything collapsed in front of their very eyes. Europe has changed and become something else, it embraced fascism, and there are many conflicts within, and this kind of “welfare” in so longer available to everyone. At the same time this neoliberal dream in Serbia, where it was constantly promoted by the dictator and servant of capital, Aleksandar Vučić, started to break into pieces and all his lies emerged so clear on the surface. And all of his lies could keep on going were there not something else in the masses. Because of the global political situation and because it is suitable for the capital, one-party dictatorship started to be implemented; or better to say the dictatorship of one man with his clique around him whom the imperialist support. Dictatorship in which they do not even respect the essential rules of former bourgeois democracy. These dictatorships preserve its rule using a brutal force. That is the case not only in Serbia, but in many other countries in the world and it is a well known reaction of the world of capital on order to save and preserve the foundations of its existence.

Balkans on the eve of the imperialist war

antiratni03-01  All preparations for the imperialist war to start are in the final stage. On the one side Western imperialism led by the US, and, on the other side, the Russian and Chinese imperialists and their allies. However, a secret pact between the imperialists right before the conflict is not excluded, as it had already happened before the Second World War. Nowadays, the imperialists made a further step; they fight each other in different countries’ territories, competing to sell more of their arms to everyone involved in the war. The ideology is not important at all, and the imperialists will not hesitate to make the most reactionary decisions. We can only speculate about the form of the war in the next stage, but it is apparent that the conflict cannot be stopped.

  A major conflict is approaching, and it is only a matter of time before the current conflicts turn into a new phase.

  The question is what kind of attitude to take in this escalating conflict because it is not only about the fate of hundreds of millions of people but perhaps the human kind as such.

Young, Beautiful, Smart and Aspiring Defeatists.

S8  During the cold war and the divide of Europe a great ideological and propagandist struggle was waged. The socialist camp, believing in the fast onset of the next stage of socialist revolution, tried through the communist parties to prepare the masses for these events, while Western imperialism, through modern revisionism, wanted to undermine the very ideological basis of the communist parties. Western imperialism had been quite successful in this field. Modern revisionism slowly spread through the bureaucratic structures of the ossified communist parties of the socialist block, all the while Western communist parties began to roam in their ideological orientation.

   After two decades spent in poverty, war, and hunger the working masses of Bosnia and Herzegovina finally stood up against oppression and joined the millions of enslaved people who are fighting for their rights all over the world. After a long period of rampant nationalism, which capitalists and war profiteers used for personal enrichment by looting of the once state-owned property, the masses were brought into poverty and misery. While the masses starve and suffer in poverty, those who got rich on the disaster worry about only one thing – how to increase their capital.
