Why Hello Lenin

I changed the blog layout two weeks ago ago and found out that the blog name After the Dinner Party needed to be replaced too. The old title was too long. It occupied too much space in the blog header of the new layout design. So I came up with an even better name: Hello Lenin.

Not only does the name sound like Hello Kitty, it remains loyal to the original meaning present in the old name. Hello Lenin still reaffirms my present self-identification as a committed partisan for universal emancipation that do not settle for mere (mis)readings, as this blog’s first name implied.

“Philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways; the point is to change it,” Karl Marx’s famous line goes. Hello Lenin still captures this appeal while remaining short. The name Hello Lenin is also a response to that 2003 German film entitled Good Bye Lenin. Set in the dramatic years of the fall of the Berlin Wall, Good Bye Lenin attempts to finally bring closure to what it describes as a massively flawed and repressive state that was borne out of the legacy of Lenin.

In the film we have a brother and a sister tending to their mother who just woke up from a long coma. When the mother was unconscious, the Berlin Wall fell, East and West Germany is about to be reunited, and so on. Their mother was a staunch supporter of the old regime, hence the two siblings takes to extreme lengths to make it appear as if there are no drastic changes. Of course, it turns out that the siblings didn’t have to do all that because their mother was not actually a real believer of the old regime but was only pretending to do so.

Thus the film rehashes the usual canard about the futility of socialism and the superiority of capitalism when in fact what fell in the late 80s and the early 90s in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe were Modern Revisionist states that used the name of Marx and Lenin in words but oppressed and exploited the working people in deeds. The fall of the Berlin Wall and the full restoration of capitalism was only the culmination of their prior betrayal of the revolutionary ideals represented by the name Lenin.

The full restoration of capitalism in the former Soviet Union in 1991 after decades of revisionist rule with Stalin’s death in 1953, as well as the embracing of the capitalist road by Red China after Mao’s death in 1976, has led bourgeois intellectuals and their imperialist masters to crow about a “New World Order” and global capitalism as the “End of History.”

But the continuing crisis of the world capitalist system and the recent resurgence of people’s movements and revolutionary struggles on a worldwide scale has quickly swept the rug under their feet and effectively debunked the illusion of a seamless capitalist utopia. We are still in the age of imperialism and world revolution as Lenin diagnosed a Century hence.

It is therefore but fitting to say hello to Lenin once more.

One thought on “Why Hello Lenin

  1. I am going to expound on what is going to happen in the very near future! Perhaps you can prevent this logical progression into the future from occurring by illogically “NUKING the planet and tossing it into the sun! That’s a possibility. but if that does not happen, I will tell you what most likely will!

    All of you Right Wingers were not born with the ability to use your intellect, but you make up for this lack, by still retaining your primitive INSTINCTS for survival.

    Your INSTINCT has informed you of the impending danger that is on our horizon!, Because of your inability to think deeply and intellectually it is not as clear as it could be, if for example, you were endowed with the ability to use your intellect in conjunction with your instinct everything would be much clearer!

    I am certain that most of the people on the “RIGHT” are convinced of a vast conspiracy to enter into a “NEW WORLD ORDER” of gigantic proportions!
    That this “New World Order” will be a conspiracy by “Communists” or “Socialists!”

    I will now reveal to you the truth of this vast “New World Order, Conspiracy, that is already taking place on a “Global Scale!”

    I am sure that everyone is aware of the “Global Economy!” and how the economy being global has the power to cause Jobs to go to other nation states, and how the Global Economy is becoming a more dominant influence and is subverting our “National Interests!” in favor of our global interests.

    Excuse me! It is not OUR Global interests, but it is the Global Interests of those that are involved in Global Multi-Nationals, International Finance, and Global Banking!

    Let’s face it, about 1% of the world population has formed a “OLIGARCHY” that controls not only our economy, here in the good ol’ USA but everywhere in every nation on the planet! Those of you that still think that small business is the engine that is the foundation of our economy is living in the past, and has their head screwed on backwards! We are living in a GLOBAL ECONOMY!

    The Global Economy signals the end of the “Nation State” and the beginning of the Fascist Global Rule by the largest crony capitalists on the planet that will create a “Planned Economy” that will guarantee the largest rate of profit to the “Global crony capitalists “Oligarchy and they will achieve this high rate of profit by a massive exploitation of workers and consumers.

    The control of prices by manipulating supply and demand, will allow our crony corporate masters to artificially create scarcity inside the marketplace so that they can create high prices for artificially scarce and necessary commodities, this predictable manuever will guarantee the highest rate of profit to the crony members of the oligarchy, and will create a massive exploitation of the 99% of the world’s population!

    Those that are capable of understanding the anatomy of change, understand that every thing that exists will eventually change to the opposite of what formerly existed. History never repeats it’s self because all new changes in the nature and character of what is new has the elements within it’s structure of maturing and growing by the understanding of negative forces, and what positive forces are necessary so that moving toward the future will always become more relevant, mature and positive than what existed in the no longer relevant and decadent past!

    The global planned economy that will be planned to enrich only a 1% of the world population, will inevetably be changed by the exploited 99% of the world population, to the opposite of a planned economy for and by the 1% of the world population, … to a planned economy that is planned to enrich the entire world population without discrimination.

    Due to the “revolutionary” change in our g/obal technology it has become crystal clear that it has become necessary for the people of the planet EARTH to “cooperate” rather than “compete” for what is necessary to survive and thrive. The planet”s people and it’s resources can only be saved from obvious extinction by cooperation and global planning.

    It is “HUMAN NATURE” to adapt to necessary change and when the nature of the planet’s surroundings change it is the custom of all living things to adapt to that necessary change, or become extinct!
