Greeting Message of the Comintern (SH)

on occasion of the 197th anniversary

of Frederick Engels


Today we celebrate the 197th birthday of Friedrich Engels.

In our recent greeting messages, we have tried to appreciate the importance of the teachings of Friedrich Engels related to the current world situation. This is also our concern for the 197th birthday.

This time, the focus is on the "Principles of Communism" that Friedrich Engels wrote 170 years ago. The Comintern (SH) has now published this famous text in 26 languages (see below).

In the second half of the forties, when Engels wrote his writing, Marxism began to enter the world arena of historical events, at a time when the class struggle of the proletariat against the bourgeoisie came to the fore. This was the period of formation of the proletariat as a class at a time when the working class was not yet emerging as an independent political force. The absence of a truly scientific socialist theory inhibited the emergence of a proletarian party and prevented the working class from treading the path of conscious revolutionary struggle. Therefore, the most important task facing the still young Marx and Engels in this period was the elaboration of the principles of scientific communism.

Today we are in a comparable period, namely the regeneration of the world proletariat and its world party, the Communist International. The world proletariat was no longer an independent political force with the dissolution of the Comintern. The revolutionary power of the world proletariat was hampered by modern revisionism, which has meanwhile renewed as neo-revisionism by its molting. Therefore, the most important task at present is to further develop the principles of communism in the age of globalization. This task has been fulfilled by the Comintern (SH) with the publication of her

"Principles of World Communism".

Just as Marxism occupied an important place at the beginning of the forties, so today Stalinism-Hoxhaism occupies an important place - at that time for the creation of the theoretical preconditions for the beginning of the proletarian world movement and today for the restoration of the theoretical prerequisites for the revival of the world proletarian world movement. Both then and now it is equally important to study the major revolutionary theories of the proletariat, to disseminate them and to direct them against the non-proletarian socialist ideas: once against the tendencies of utopian socialism, against the petty-bourgeois Proudhonism and the socialism of Louis Blanc.

Today Stalinism-Hoxhaism is directed against neo-revisionism, against Maoism, Trotskyism, anarchism, and against innumerable opportunistic currents, which of course at the time of Marx and Engels could not have been widespread to such an extent.

To the same degree as the class struggle between the world proletariat and the world bourgeoisie intensifies, the former and present representatives of all these opportunist tendencies seek to prevent the world revolution, to soften the antagonistic class contradictions, reconcile conflicting interests, and to hamper the growing movement of the revolutionary world proletariat. At then-time of the beginning of the workers' movement Marxism was by no means predominant, but only one of many factions or currents of socialism. This is no different today with Stalinism-Hoxhaism in conditions of the rebirth of the revolutionary proletarian world movement.

Concerning the intelectuals, only a minority of them came to Marxism in the first creative period of Marx and Engels over the path of philosophy, especially Hegelianism. And today ? Only very few intellectuals, via Marxism-Leninism, reach the further development towards Stalinism-Hoxhaism. This is not surprising, since most intellectuals who engage with Marxism-Leninism draw their false knowledge above all from the still prevalent sources of modern revisionism. They tend to dogmatism because they are neither willing nor able to modify socialist science according the new conditions of globalization. It is inevitable, then, that the intellectuals who tend towards Marxism-Leninism divide in mainly two opposite directions, in the direction of neo-revisionism and in the direction of Stalinism-Hoxhaism. This two-way division is based on the principle that Stalinism-Hoxhaism evolves in the fight against neo-revisionism and conquers its supremacy not without the defeat of neo-revisionism.

Just as Marx and Engels spent much of their time trying to persuade the revolutionaries that Marxism was right, so too today the Comintern (SH) must spend much effort and time to convince the revolutionaries of the correctness of Stalinism-Hoxhaism. With the founding of new Sections, the Comintern (SH) has been increasingly successful in recent years in educating Stalinist Hoxhaists in various countries who actively participate in making known Stalinism-Hoxhaism in their country.

Exactly 170 years ago, Engels wrote the statute of the German "League of Communists", the first communist party of the world:

"The purpose of the League is the overthrow of the bourgeoisie, the rule of the proletariat, the abolition of the old bourgeois society based on class contradictions, and the founding of a new society without classes and private property." (MEW, Vol. 4, page 596; German edition)

And exactly this is also the theoretical basis of Stalinism-Hoxhaism and it can not be otherwise, because Stalinism-Hoxhaism is only the further development of Marxism-Leninism, developed and applied in the current conditions of globalization.

A true world revolutionary can thus correctly apply the teachings of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels only as a guideline for his revolutionary practice with the help of Stalinism-Hoxhaism. And vice versa, Stalinism-Hoxhaism can not be correctly applied in revolutionary practice without the teachings of Marxism-Leninism.

The teachings of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism are indivisible and the expressive guideline for all activities of the Comintern (SH).

So we do not defend Friedrich Engels by conserving his doctrines, or by copying them in a relation of 1: 1, but we further develop his teachings modified according the present conditions as a guidance for our action.

Thus, the Comintern (SH) has combined the old slogan which Marx and Engels proclaimed 170 years ago, according to today's conditions of globalization:

"Proletarians of all countries, unite!"

"World proletariat - unite all countries!"

Long live the 197th Birthday of Frederick Engels, the 2nd Classic of Marxism-Leninism!

Long live the invincible teachings of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism: Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Enver Hoxha!

Long live violent world socialist proletarian revolution and world armed proletarian dictatorship!

Long live world socialism and world communism!

Long live the Comintern (SH)!
