In Lieu of Introduction

New Era of Imperialism


New Proletarian Revolution

Those who do not recognise the changing dimension of Imperialism or knowingly do not intend to do so, they all have started denying the very existence of Imperialism today and those who fail to deny, invent progressiveness of the role of Imperialism. They claim that higher productive forces of Imperialism have played a role of qualitative change in the lower productive forces. This way, Imperialism has been a new tool, breaking status quo against the inertia and its role in its changed form in the light of globalisation is progressive. Those who put such proposition forget the basic character of Imperialism and collaborating with new capital, trying continuously to the contradictions by artificial means.

It is opposed to the dialectical method and historical materialist concept that capital is becoming newer from the new and proletariat remains old. It is having some meaning to become new for proletariats and to become new, its role is essential.

Seeing the assailant tendency, various Marxist-Leninist leaders, and intellectuals had declared it a new Imperialist and social fascist. Today, when, instead of correctly recognising the new era of Imperialism, those who call the present Imperialism the new Imperialism, they do the work of forgetting the old historical context. For this very reason, to put the correct thinking at the correct place, the CPIML New Proletarian has given the call of new proletarian revolution in the new era of Imperialism. New Proletarian revolution, may be a stage of revolution for some people; but for us, it is such a revolution to which, instead of arresting the stage, we not only see new to newer and high to higher form of practice of struggling philosophy and active ideology of both internal and external aspects of its formal and objective content, but we are developing it too. Starting with this conception, if we conduct a new campaign by adding the live part of the past with the active part of the present, then it is clear that science and technique, communication and information, politics and philosophy; all in all can become the tool for moving ahead. This is the reason, why we are moving towards the development in the form of modern communist party free from the past communist party by taking initiative of adding the lowest end with the top most end of the proletariat.

The Communist Party we are developing is not only having the agenda of negating the old communist party but also the old and new bourgeois parties. That does not presume such an alternative which would be alternative for the alternative sake. Therefore today’s proletarian alternative is the development of the new proletarian revolution and proletarianisation of continuous revolutionary method. The process of its economic, political and social transformation would be applied by the new method instead of metaphysical and the old so called socialist rule and those aspects of society which have lost their essence during a century that required rejection. Therefore we are to do something new. Inevitably the new proletarian dictatorship is to be proved. The new proletarian revolution is not to be confused with new socialist revolution.

Proletariat cannot emancipate itself unless it equips other classes for it freedom. It’s own freedom will have to understand the pervasiveness of the freedom of others. We commit to develop it theoretically and practically. If in the last seventy-five years the existence of the communist party in the country has been providing progressiveness to the bourgeoisie, we will have to rein it and take new initiative independently. Usually, in the name of freedom we have to face anarchy. Therefore, we always take freedom relatively and place autonomy in the centre of centralism. Then and only then we can see the concept of legitimate opposition in the right perspective which we are committed to.

Revolutionary Greetings on the Second conference of ICTU
Message from Dr. K.S. Sharma, president, Indian Revolutionary Trade Unions Confederation., Hubli, Karnataka.
Dear Comrade Sheo Mangal Siddhankar,
Kindly accept my revolutionary greetings on the occasion of the 2nd Central Conference of the Indian Council of Trade Unions, being held at New Delhi on 29th and 30th May 2011. I should have been there to participate in the deliberations of this very significant conference being held at a time when Indian Trade Unionism is at cross-roads, but due to my severe indisposition, I have been advised not to undertake long journeys for the present and thus I am compelled to skip this very important event. My mind and heart are with you in the conference, though I am physically compelled to be away.

At the outset, I wish the conference will have fruitful deliberations and culminate successfully to pave a new path for the Indian working class, which is in a dilemma. For an occasion of this kind I thought it better to pen a few of my stray thoughts on the role of trade unions, the tasks of the working class in this country, at this juncture and thus this note.

The focus of the conference is well structured – “unity of uncommonness to bolster to the opposite”. The five topics thrown up for discussion deserve to be debated thoroughly and thrashedout. The role of new proletarians is posing a formidable problem both regarding their organization and their role and tasks. How to amalgamate, the old proletariat with the New Proletariat is the formidable question. These need to be understood, and analysed and a path chalked out to put up a united struggle against the exploiting national, multi-national operators. Globalisation needs to be understood in its correct perspective and the role of the exploited classes in defeating the exploiting classes, needs to be re-defined and re-worked. It is keeping the above tasks of the conference that I have prepared this note.

That the Indian Council of Trade Unions was founded on Marx’s birthday, May 5, gives this council added significance. The founder-chairman Sheo Mangal Siddhantkar’s deep conviction in Marxism, is amply reflected in the functioning of ICTU. Siddhantkar being also the founder of CPI-ML (New Proletarian) has made a significant contribution to the theory and practice of Marxism to Indian conditions.

In this context, let me recall the opinion you expressed about the historic role of USSR and China, way back in 1983, which is still relevant: “We cannot escape the realities of Marxism – Leninism in USSR and China. That created developed, destroyed and preserved. They are our legacies. Let us be intellectually honest to Marxism as a science. Last 73 years of practice cannot be a void in the history of proletarian movement in USSR and China. We have to draw our practical lessons and go ahead. Our concept of TMP Technical and Managerial Proletariat fills that void in last 4 decades of Communist parties the world over, a new class, a class of new proletarians…….. That is not a proletarian bourgeois”. You had also remarked – “Where was the question of restoration of capitalism when actually the material base for socialism was not yet built and only transition to socialism was underway. Deng was only resorting to necessary measures and departures for further development of productive forces, to go ahead so that socialism can be built on such a foundation”. Your slogan “Slaves fight among themselves; Free People fight against the enemy” reflects the need to fight imperialism.

At this juncture, when India is full of divisive theories and practices, based on religion, caste, region etc, working classes and parties

claiming to represent them are equally if not more infected with these theories and practices. This is in addition to the political differences, often tainted by caste, communal, regional politics in addition to politics of class collaboration. Unity of working class despite differences or uncommonness will be possible only when these tendencies are fought within the working class and its party.

In this context it is relevant to quote Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, who reflected as follows regarding Parliamentary Democracy and the role of Trade Unions and the working class. He said “Parliamentary Democracy, notwithstanding the paraphernalia of a popular government, is in reality a government of a hereditary subject class by a hereditary ruling class. Then posing the question “who is responsible for this?” he said – “There is no doubt that if Parliamentary Democracy has failed to benefit the poor, the labouring and the downtrodden classes, it is these classes, who are primarily, responsible for it”. He said: “…….. They have developed no ambition to capture government, and are not even convinced of the necessity of controlling government, as a necessary means of safeguarding their interests. Indeed they are not even interested in government”. Dr. Ambedkar had warned: “It would be great mistake to suppose that Trade Unions are a panacea for all the ills of Labour” and proposed “The first thing to do is to discard mere establishment of Trade Unions as the final aim and object of labour of India. It must declare that its aim is to put labour in charge of government. For this it must organize a labour party as a political party ….. Labour will have to prove positively that it can govern better”.

These statements of Dr. Ambedkar are reminiscent of the pronouncement of Karl Marx in Communist Manifesto. “The first step in the revolution by the working class is to raise the proletariat to the position of ruling class, to win the battle for democracy”.

Thus the working class should never forget the prescription given by Karl Marx, that the proletarian class should become the Ruling Class in order to put an end to the exploitative capitalistic system.

An important aspect to be noted is that class analysis as a mode of intellectual discourse, and social class as the pivoted axis of political mobilization, have both suffered marginalization, although certainly not complete collapse, in the face of the casualization of work, trade union decline and the fracturing of socialist political formations, not to mention the impact of neo-liberal and post-modernist ideas. This is undoubtedly the case not only in capitalist countries but also in other parts of the world as well.

In this context one dimension that has to be addressed to refresh class analysis is to develop the theoretical capacity to understand a world in which an emerging “cybertariat” coexists with “Peasantries”, not to mention the increasing number of factory workers worldwide. It is in this context that the concepts of “New Proletariat” ie. TMP and the “Unity of Uncommonness” assume a place of increased significance.

I conclude by extending revolutionary greetings to all the comrades participating in this historic conference and hope that this conference would pave the path for the establishment of a real and new socialist society in India.
