The twenty-first century is going to show the resounding moral inferiority of the left, unless it denounces Marx, Marxism and all the dictatorships derived from it. Marxism advocated the use of violence to destroy the state and end the regime of property and private capital (capitalism). Marx and Engels put it bluntly in The Communist Manifesto of 1848 and kept it until their last days. Engels also, in The Origin of the Family, Private Property and the State of 1884, made it clear that we must put an end to the State, which is the instrument through which the bourgeoisie represses the proletariat.
Whoever believes that this was not the thought of Marx and Engels, should read the books quoted or, rather, The State and the Revolution, of 1917, in which Lenin explains, copying quotes from both books, the authentic Marxist thought, that he set in motion in the Soviet Union after giving a coup d’etat against the revolutionary coalition government of Kerensky.
The sad reality is that, on the one hand, the left has not read nor does it seem that it wants to read its founders, and on the other hand, the right, has always been very prude in utopia and has only wielded in its favor the highest efficiency of the private companies.
The left, and the pseudo-left, still do not want to know or, what would be worse, pretend that they do not know, nothing of the crimes and abuses to which Marx and his theories led a large part of humanity. The materialization of his ideas has clear icons, such as the Berlin Wall, the bloody crushing of the protests in Hungary in 1956 or the entry of Russian tanks in Prague in August 1968, very shortly after the revolutionary French May. The left took advantage of and continues to take advantage of the beret of Che Guevara that, had he succeeded in Bolivia, would have been another Castro or another Maduro.
The left claims to have a monopoly of solidarity and concern for the lower classes. Tell the Polish, Hungarian, Czech, Romanian, Bulgarian, German people! Not only did they live in economic hardship and scarcity, but they were stripped of their dignity, having to sell themselves and become members of the party to get their children to have access to university, to a better job or a shared home. Totalitarianism is like that, the State controls everything.
The film “The lives of others” denounces the oppression to which the German political police, Stasi, subdued its citizens, buying them, bribing them to spy on their neighbours, in exchange for better living conditions. It is estimated that three million Germans succumbed to the pressures of their political police. I do not know how long it will be to continue waiting for Spanish progressive filmmakers to make a film about the political police repression in Cuba, about the functioning in each block of the Committees for the Defence of the Revolution (CDR) that control the lives of their neighbours and crush the minimum freedom of expression.
