    Comrade Zimmerwald will get some moderates and militants to join the Leninist-Marxist cause leaving the Anarchists further and further behind! We have to do something!

    With just over one day to go here is the latest tally:

    49 votes - We're so close to the 50 vote target, I'd hoped Lenin could have pushed us to a decent mid to late 50s score though.

    Marxists-Leninists: 27

    Anarchists: 10

    Militarists: 8

    United Front: 2

    Moderates: 2

    Anarchists

    In light of the latest polls, I think the reason should be obvious. Comrade Lenin may be charasmatic and skillful, and his policies popular - but this should not allow him and his committed comrades to dominate the party executive, lest power corrupt them and irreparably deform the people's march towards socialism and freedom.

    I really do feel as though the Republic needs some peace in order to consolidate the massive gains the Revolution has achieved. Furthermore, I suspect the motives of the Militarists, and feel that endless war may lend them undue influence amongst the people.

    Time to tip the scales back in favor of freedom, comrades!

    Thank you Zimmerwald for writing up some non-Anarchist propaganda for a change. I'd also like to remind Enewald that there is a perfectly good forum at Paradox for posting in German, please do so there and not here.

    I cast my vote for the United Front.

    -

    Fellow workers, please lend me your ear; torn as I am to vote for the self-liberating pastoralism that Kroptokin represents, we are at a crisis. What crisis is that, you mask? A crisis of stagnation. With two parties dominating the vote - and I would consider the Militarists to be nothing more than a particularly cancerous outgrowth of the Marxist-Leninist faction - we will soon have a lack of political opinion in our society; one that shall throw us back from the vaulted successes we have achieved into the hated pre-dawn times of Capitalism. Although blessed with some of the most charismatic and brilliant leaders of our time - Lenin, Kroptokin, Engels - we are trusting more and more to these leaders. Even the Anarchists, in their rebuke of Syndicalism, have begun to take steps towards a decentralized centralization - one where the grass roots will only promote the most charismatic instead of the most capable.

    I vote for the United Front, not because it is the best party; indeed, there can be no one best party. Perhaps the notion of party organizations themself are holding us back, and by running candidates solely by virtue of their plans, would we benefit from further diversification. No, I vote for the United Front because I feel it will guarantee us continued success - and that if it wins, it will jolt us back to the stark reality that without diversity of opinion, the Capitalist Class will reform under a new banner. Be wary, my friends. A storm brews.

    -

    Seriously, I want to vote ML for the Economic Policy, Anarchist for the Civil Policy, and UF to make sure that neither gets too bloated. Siiiigh. Why must I pick one? Ah, well. A truly awesome article, comrade Zimmerwald.

    I vote Anarchist!!

    We must resist the Leninist tyrancy, that only would expand government control and hinder the revolution. He doesn't even hide that he is a Imperialist in disguise. He talk about conquering Africa, a Continent that is not nearly ready for a revolution. If we go in there we'd end up a Imperialist Power, just like Britain and France. We'd end up ruling over a people who can't rule themselves, thus creating a system of Classes that don't belong in Socialism. Stop Lenin now! Vote Anarchist to save Socialism and the Revolution!!

    Africa For the Africans!


    January 6th, 1876

    A Progressive African Policy
    One cannot think of Africa in modern times without thinking also of capitalism depredations on that continent. The slave trade, the greatest crime capitalism has inflicted upon humanity, a crime whose consequences many countries still must redress today, was accomplished by the ravaging of Africa. The swallowing up of India and the pauperization of her people by British capital would be impossible without that country’s coaling stations in Africa. The same can be said of the cancer on Chinese society that is opium. The British, French, Dutch, Spanish, and Portuguese holdings on that continent are the legacy of centuries of criminal behavior.

    And today, in modern capitalism, those holdings only enable further capitalist crimes against humanity. The competition for ivory, minerals, and other products of the interior can only have the following consequences. As the capitalist empires extend their reach, they will only proletarianize native labor, in the process reducing it to the same degraded state as European labor. And as capitalists compete for territory, the seeds will be sown for future wars, wars that will trample the African people and bleed out the European proletariat. Our People’s Republic, concerned not only with Germany but with the liberation of the whole of humanity, must develop an African policy to combat the African policies of the capitalist states.

    As in all things, an African policy must serve the needs of the international socialist revolution. The Marxist-Leninist faction believes it has developed a policy that will do so. That policy consists of planting modern socialism in Africa, and asserting the political claim of our People’s Republic, in the name of humanity, against all the capitalist states. Our policy has been challenged within People’s Party discussions as being just another form of imperialism, of national oppression, not too different from the practices of capitalist states. Our faction answers only with the history of our People’s Republic. We abandoned the pretensions of being a German-only state before 1855. When the old Marxist faction first took power, it instituted policies that would allow all the nations of the Republic to develop their national lives, by printing government documents in French and Dutch as well as German, and by letting schools in those languages open and operate freely. Today Czechs and Poles, too, receive those national rights in our Republic. It is true that Bohemia, Flanders, and Wielkopolska are not independent states, but there is no reason that they should be, when national life is as free to develop as in our People’s Republic, accompanied too by cross-national solidarity for human aims.

    The Marxist-Leninist faction looks to this tradition to informing our national policy in Africa. And indeed we have much to learn from Africans in terms of real communist spirit. There are peoples in Africa that have never experienced class society, who only know a form of communism—not modern communism with the benefits of industry, but communism nonetheless. The combination of our most spirited, most conscious youth and what the Africans have to teach of communist life can only enrich the culture of our People’s Republic. As for industry, we have made our criticisms of the way industry is managed in the Republic, and would not seek to simply transplant Cologne from the Rhine onto the Niger. Rather, Africa, untainted by capitalist practices, can model how Marxist-Leninists organize industry.

    Finally, by denying Africa to the capitalists, we will hasten the revolution in Western Europe. With all the enormous profits of Africa in their pockets, the capitalists would be able to bribe their workers, aping our social security while maintaining their exploitation. Without Africa, workers in those countries would see more clearly that the only way to a better life is social revolution. Nothing can be done to reduce capitalism’s tendency towards war, but at the least our Republic’s proven soldiery would make them think twice about carrying war into lands protected by our Republic. And if they do, it will be a people’s army that meets them.

    To save African communism from capitalism, to help it develop into modern forms, to enrich our cultural life, and to hasten the European revolution, vote Marxist-Leninist, ballot line 3.

    Thanks again to zimmerwald1915 for another article. I do hope he manages to get his technical problems sorted out so he can start posting here.

    After a flurry of votes for factions other than the Marxist-Leninists (I know it sound unlikely but it happened) here are the latest results:

    54 votes - yay! We've surpassed 50 votes.

    Marxist-Leninsts: 27

    Anarchists: 14

    Militarists: 8

    United Front: 3

    Moderates: 2

    So it's tie between the Imperialists and the total support of other factions. I hate to say this, but the Anarchists must ally with the small factions to save the revolution from doom.

    The Militarsts would never ally with the Anarchists, so that couldn't really work. I'm shocked by the great successes of the Militarists, to be honest. Do we really have so many covert reactionaries in our ranks?! But no matter. I trust the workers have more sense and will vote in great numbers against them, allowing Lenin to form a coalition with a sane party.

    Comrades! Yes Marx predicted that country's would go from feudalism to capitalism to socialism to communism, however he never stated that it is required for these events to happen in flow for socialism to be successful! He made a prediction, not a mandate, should we let are African brothers suffer under the rule of bourgeois because of a a prediction!?! NO!

    Yes Africa is not modernized, but I believe in what I call "permanent revolution"(From in RL Trotsky, in game I don't think Trotsky joined the Bolsheviks yet.). The late developing nations cannot achieve a industrial prolwe must ally with the proletariat peasants in Africa, and carry out the task of the Bourgeois Democratic Revolution for the Bourgeois cant! However this would require outside socialist states to ally and help the African worker states so they are not doomed to a bureaucratic degeneration from the pressers of hostile capitalists! Thankfully, we are one of those other socialist states!

    I call on my Faction(Marxist-Leninist) to give suffrage to the proletarian pleasantry and proletarian artisans. However NOT to the petite-bourgeois elements of these groups!
