„Only blind men can deny the progressive growing of the Comintern`s influence and authority in all countries of the world.“
»Present world communism must be characterized by the revolutionary, militant spirit of Lenin`s and Stalin`s heroic times, by the Comintern.“

PART I (of II)
5 years in solidarity with Marxist - Leninist comrades all over the world !
5 years of efforts for helping principled Hoxhaists in the whole world to come to meet, to come together and strengthening their international solidarity and supporting them to improve and develop the general principles of Marxism-Leninism. We wanted to work out the new principled general line of the Marxist-Leninist World Movement as a first and most importent task to achieve the necessary unity as a main result. And that `s what we did for all the 5 years!
Today in most of the countries there are no genuine Marxist-Leninist organizations (which are really congruent in words and deeds) or much less strong and genuine Marxist-Leninist parties – anchored with the class and the masses and equipped with a clear ideological demarcation-line against the revisionists in general and against the neo-revisionists in particular. To tell the thruth some of the former Marxist – Leninist parties - in lifetime of comrade Enver Hoxha – came to splits, liquidations, degenerations. Others have to deal with problems to develop their Bolshevist principles. Their ideological position differs from one country to another enormously and even in the country itself there are deep basical ideological differences which make it nearly impossible to unite. The scene of the Marxist-Leninist movement is characterized by ideological confusion and organizational splitting. The Marxist-Leninists all over the world are not contented with this situation of distraction, they suffer under the present situation of disunity and they want to clear away the opportunist brake shoes. So these suffering comrades are grateful for every international solidarity and support. Single comrades and different Marxist-Leninist groups and parties consulted the Comintern/ML within the past 5 years and the Comintern/ML was able to help these comrades in over 15 countries. Primarily the Comintern/ML – Homepage: http://ciml.250x.com became the lodestar , a glimmer of hope to find out the right way towards the upbuilding of a new Communist International in demarcation-line against opportunism and revisionism.
The strength of the Communist International / ML lays within the past 5 years in first line in this, that she has shown the true Marxist - Leninists the firm-principled ideological way out of the ideological world labyrinth of the bourgeois ideology. She has given the Marxist - Leninist world movement a new prospect, a new orientation, has given international solidarity and the mutual confidence to the comradesall over the world.
The Comintern/ML is a worldwidely independent organization, so is not controlled by any other organization except by the ideas of the 5 classics of Marxism – Leninism.
The Comintern / ML has lit a very little, first spark for the flame of the world revolution. The prerequisites for the foundation of the of Communist International/ML was long matured. The Communist International/ML has resurrected again the world revolutionary ideas of the old Comintern and given the most revolutionary world forces an annoyance. The Comintern / ML continued the tradition of the Comintern and promotes the world proletarian revolutionary movement.
" 5 years -- 5 heads "
- This means 5 years resuscitation and innovation of the world Bolshevist movement, defense of the world revolutionary teachings of the classics:
Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Enver Hoxha;
" 5 years -- 5 heads "
– The only correct world politics which belongs to the poroletarians` future - the policy of the consistent and firm-principled proletarian internationalism;
" 5 years -- 5 heads "
- Propaganda for the world meaning of the Bolshevism, for the teaching of the inevitability of the victory of the proletarian world revolution;
" 5 years -- 5 heads "
- preparation for a new ideological center of the world socialism in the fight against the center of the world capitalism;
" 5 years -- 5 heads "
- ideological efforts to support the development of a new world proletarian avant-garde and to make it conscious about the necessity and inevitability of the Communist international;
" 5 years -- 5 heads "
– This means not only the defense for the idea the communist international but her concrete existence as a living organization -- an active, fighting organization of the world proletariat, although it is livingin a rather tiny and incomplete organizational form. However, for 5 years, the Comintern / ML works and struggles- slowly, modestly, imperceptibly. After 5 years nobody can ignore it as a historical fact. The 5 years have pointed but also: A right ideologically political general line is only a first prerequisite. If converted not in the deed this theoretical line will die. It is made for the world proletariat, but useless if it is not put into practice. The general line of the Comintern / ML is righthowever this does not suffice because it only matters that there are comrades who understand and organize and check the general line`s translation into action. This is the weakest point in the past 5 years. And this can only be changed by the comrades themselves.
On what ground the Comintern / ML was founded?
1. The foundation of the Comintern / MLwas based on the bare fact,
that there are billions of working masses living in misery caused by the exploitation and oppression of worldimperialism, or more theoretically:
that there is an increasing contradiction between international work and international capital, that there is a world crisis drastically intensified by the world imperialistic globalization movement,
that there are international class contradictions which deepen in high speed and which turn out of the industrial global centers , which spread revolutionary waves to form a worldwide class movement and which slop over one country after another.
The deterioration of the proletariat in each country leads to the deterioration of the world proletariat as a whole. This means that the proletarian consciousness grows as a whole international class-consciousness not only to fight against capitalism in this or that country but to fight against globalized capitalism in an international class-front far beyond national borders. So the organization of the Comintern / ML is a foundation process far beyond the national borders – is an international foundation process based on the international organizational process of the world proletariat. The Comintern / ML is a product of the polarization between the world bourgeoisie and the world proletariat - inevitably turned out as a formation-process of a worldwide revolutionary class. The Marxist-Leninist World movement is not only the sum of all the Marxist-Leninist Movements on a national scale, even not an alliance of these movements. So, the Comintern / ML can only be such center of the Marxist-Leninist Movement which grows out of the center of the most developed part of a conscious, revolutionary global class. The Comintern / ML grows in coherence with the formation of a new Marxist - Leninist world movement from the middle of the world proletarian movement. The world proletariat organizes itself, prepares for itself its revolutionary roll to be raked on the stage of the international class struggle. The world proletariat – armed with socialist consciousness – leads the world masses out of the international crisis by its own guide rod on the way of the revolutionary capture of the world power – supported by the suppressed exploited peoples of the whole world. Consequently: without the formation process of the proletariat as a global class there is no formation process of the Comintern / ML`s foundation.
2. Its foundation was based further on the fact, that the exploitation and oppression is organized globally by the counterrevolutionary world bourgeosie. Consequently: the elimination of global exploitation and oppression is therefore only possible as a global liberation- act. The world proletariat can definitely be victorious over the world fascist counter-revolution only by its global revolutionary actions – led by its global revolutionary party - the Communist International. There is no liberation from international exploitation and oppression without the Communist International. Those parties who do not accept this truth cannot really be Marxist-Leninist Parties.
The economic globalization globalizes the present world class structure. The subjective factor gets a new international quality. The political self-confidence of the international world proletariat gets a new quality and thus also the subjective factor of the international, political, revolutionary leadership gets a new quality. What does this mean? This means that the subjective factor on a national stage gets a new quality, the Marxist-Leninist Parties of each country get a new international quality: they become single communist troops of the international communist army ! This will change generally the Marxist-Leninist character of the former Marxist-Leninist Parties, particularely its organizational structure as an inalienable international formation. They have to prepare their double role as leaders of the socialist revolution in their country AND as well their active role as divisions of the world revolution, not ideationally, not indirectly, not automatically. Thiese both roles are not a matter of pure mechanism but a matter of dialectic materialism. The socialist revolution in each country is not an end in itself, is not only fullfillment of the world revolution in this or that country.The socialist revolutions are not puzzles which complete world revolution, they are necessary chips which change during the long ongoing world revolutionary process. Socialist revolutions in each country activate the world revolutionary process as new activators of the world revolutionary process. Marxist-Leninists never understand the socialist revolution as an ultimate goal which ends with the liberation of the proletariat in this or that country. The socialist revolution has not only national character, is not exhausting in its national borders, it has international character and has to act internationally also and mainly AFTER the victory in one country. The socialist revolution in one country shall fail if it is not going on towards the world revolution actively, because the liberation of the proletariat has an international nature (because of the international nature of the proletarian class). That`s why the Marxist-Leninist Parties are international parties guided by the internationalist ideas of Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Enver Hoxha, guided by the Communist International and not guided by themselves. Marxist-Leninist cannot be true proletarian internationalists, if they forget that they are not only leaders of the proletariat in their own country but moreover and in first line leaders of one and only international class – the world proletariat.
The old Marxist - Leninist, traditional world movement can only be saved, if it is able to adapt the global revolutionary process – no matter how difficult this would be and no matter about the friction losses caused by the new global situation. If the old Marxist-Leninist World Movement does not withstand this new ideological, political and organizational processes of global adaption, it won't be able to pass the exam, then the remains of the old Marxist - Leninist world movement will be replaced by a new Marxist-Leninist World Movement. The new Marxist - Leninist world movement grows with the globalized proletarian world movement and Marxism-Leninism shall be globally stimulated by its deep internationalist roots. It is the globalization which gives Marxism-Leninism a new chance to develop as the ideology of an international class in power ! The most „revolutionary " proletariat in a single country of the world, the best and strongest „Marxist-Leninist“ party of this country shall inevitably fail and shall therefor belost for the whole Marxist-Leninist World Movement, if the revolutionary world processes are not recognized by them, if they do not act as part of the whole, if they are not integrated in the international revolutionariy processes, if they ignore the neccessity of the Communist International for the world revolution, if they refuse to struggle for communism under the leadership of the Communist International. The world proletariat becomes over this yelling key without twitching with the eyelash.
3. The foundation of the Comintern / ML is in addition based on the fact, that by the globalization the objective (economic, technical etc.) prerequisites for a world economy without capitalist exploitation and oppression, for a socialist world economy is available. Everything is available, what is required for the beginning of the socialist world economy. World production, world distribution, world exchange and -- circulation, world cosumtion – all these economic factors are available chain-links for creating the socialist world community. The key is the political seizure of power of the world proletariat to remove the world capitalist ownership and property by its socialization through the world revolution. If the world proletariat has seized his power, it can take the world economy into the own hands. The world proletariat produces internationally, is able to provide the complete world population centrally in which it puts in the national economies as driving belts for the socialist world economy. To be able to manage all these necessary important measures the world proletariat needs own international instruments, needs the Communist International, needs an international own political and economic management recruited by the best revolutionary forces out of the middle of the world proletariat. There is no socialist world economy without a Communist International. The Communist International is consequently not only necessary for the liberation but also needed for the upbuilding of world`sosialism upon the ruins of world capitalism.
4. The foundation of the Comintern / ML is last not least based on the fact, that there are a few new single cadres all over the world who developed their world revolutionary consciousness for the absolutely needed Communist International, who are becoming aware of the problems of the present Marxist-Leninist World Movement, who understand the hindrances of the reconstruction of the Communist International, who decided to struggle in the very first line for the organizational interests of the world proletariat as a whole, and who are strong enough to resist the brake shoes from such organizations of single countries who are still not interested in the reconstruction of the Communist International, who are conscious about the fact, that only a Communist International can solve the problems of the weakened Marxist-Leninist World Movement. There are now a few Marxist-Leninists all over the world who do not any longer, and by no means accept all those „arguements“ who hinder them struggling for the reconstruction of the Communist International. Fore sure, later on one party after another shall follow the Communist International, because one`s upon a time they shall be reasonable enough to know how good the struggle can be organized if there is a helping international center for all. This is a matter of consciuousness and as well a matter of conscience which shall develop steadely. Conclusion needs patience to be convincing .
The foundation of the Comintern / ML is based finally on the fact of the necessity, that you cannot successfully build up a Marxist - Leninist party in a single country without consideration of the conditions changed by the globalization. Today it is impossible to build up a Marxist-Leninist party without building up an international center for all. Single Marxist-Leninist parties who are untied from an international center who do not care about the upbuilding of the Communist International shall fail unavoidably after a longer or shorter term.
Today and in future the existence of the Marxist - Leninist party of every single country stands and falls with the ability and readiness to grow up as a part of the Communist International. And the other way round: The existence of the Communist International depends on the ability, whether to be supported by the Marxist-Leninist parties from every single country or not.
At present a Hoxhaist world party is as unthinkable without a Hoxhaist party of every country as the Hoxhaist party of a country without the Hoxhaist world party . The definition of the new Marxist-Leninist World Movement includes the Hoxhaist party of each country as well as the Hoxhaist world party. Is one of these prerequisites missing you cannot really speak about a genuine Marxist-Leninist World Movement. New norms of the international connection and cooperation were set by the Comintern / ML. The Marxist - Leninist parties of the single countries have to step forward on a higher internationalist level to become really internationalist character. This is necessary under the globalized conditions of the ongoing international class-struggle. If we loose too much times to support the Marxist-Leninist World Movement in this predefined direction we would harm not only our world movement but also our movement in every country. To become an integrated part of the Marxist-Leninist World Movement every single Marxist-Leninist party has to decide on supporting the reconstruction of the Communist International.
Who is the Comintern ML ?
The present Marxist - Leninist organizations in the single countries haven't made it till now, to be sufficiently prepared for the conditions of the globalization. In first line they try to be prepared on the negative effects of globalization on the people in their own country. They are not prepared to change their strategy and tactics from the viewepoint of the world proletariat. Ideologically, politically and organizationally they try to solve the problems by their own party and they are still not able or willing to support an international center, not to mention the upbuilding of the world party. The Comintern / ML was founded just out of the present lacks of the Marxist-Leninist parties. The foundation didn`t result in the strength of the Marxist -- Leninist World Movement, but in its weakness caused by the weakness of the single Marxist-Leninist parties. So the aim was to overcome the (at first ideological) weakness of the single Marxist-Leninist parties. This was the reason why the decisive impulses for the foundation of the Comintern / ML just didn't come from the Marxist - Leninist organizations of the single countries themselves. It was evident that under the present circumstances this could not be managed by them.
Under the present conditions of the single parties it is obvious that they were occupied with the solution of their own problems in first line, that the question of the socialist revolution in their own country ( and in - not even - few cases not at all a struggle for communism and the socialist revolution !!!) takes up her predominant strength in the own country. Nobody can deny that the Marxist-Leninist organization spent not much time ( they rather wasted their time !) for the perception and recording of the questions of the proletarian world revolution and the necessity of the reconstruction of the Communist International. This is generally the weakest point of communism in more than 70 years and not only the fault of this or that Marxist-Leninist party.
Well, it was the logical consequence that somebody would start to raise the question of the Communist International to the main and central question – not treated as a historical question but as a question which has to be solved urgently as a matter of every single Marxist-Leninist struggling on earth ! Not the Marxist-Leninist parties started theoretically and practically with the reconstruction of the Communist International, but some comrades who engaged in this task independently from the Marxist-Leninist organizations. So it was not by chance that the Comintern / ML put this question on the agenda.
The foundation of the Comintern / ML was carried out therefore inspite – and almost without any support – of the existing Marxist-Leninist organizations of the single countries. Because of their ignorance ( many years passed waiting without any signal which would come from any single Marxist-Leninist party!) there was no other way left then to pay the only attention on ourselves, preparing the theoretical basement of the Comintern / ML as a completely exclusive matter of our own. There was nobody else interested in the Comintern / ML, so we had to rely on our own forces and coped with the needed preparation work ! Unfortunately, our solo run was forced by the ignorance of the Marxist-Leninist parties ,and it was not at all the general concept of our working style. Many mistakes we have done by solo running ought to be avoided by team work and cooperation. But if there wasn`t any you had to go alone to step forward. So most of the job was made by ourselves within these 5 years and now it `s time to give us feed back, time for criticism and self-criticism. Was our work helpful or harmful for the Marxist-Leninist World Movement ?
The unbiased Marxist - Leninists shall follow the efforts of the Comintern / ML with sympathy. The web-site of the Comintern / ML is respectable. Every Marxist-Leninist can comprehend the helpful and useful idea of the foundation of the Comintern / ML. Everybody, who knows by his own experiences how difficult it is to form a monolithic Marxist-Leninist World Organization shall appreciate our efforts and encourage us to step forward in the direction we entered. For a true Marxist – Leninist it is hardly understandable to interpre the foundation of the of Comintern / ML as an act of “fractionism”, as an attempt of “splitting” , as a claim for getting the “dominant leadership”. All these accusations are rooted in petty-bourgeois “rivalry- thinking”, but is never based on the class-consciousness of the world proletariat, who strives for a powerful international proletarian party which fights for the world proletarian interests. The world proletarian class can only judge in this way: is this organization helpful for our purpose or not ? Is the Comintern / ML indispensable or superfluous ? If it is indispensable then the world proletariat shall support it. However, if it comes out unnecessary then the world proletariat shall drop it. We cannot forsee in which direction the Comintern / ML shall develop and how the workers shall decide on us, but one thing isalready for sure: A true worker would not drop us before he gave us the chance to convince him. We made our previous work accessible and public for everyone. Our matter is still in the discussion stage. The debate on the Comintern / ML is open. Those who have doubts should have the courage to inform us about them. And we have the same right to ask those who would have critisized us: “Okay, if the foundation of the Comintern / ML would be a ´big shit´ in your eyes, so then please tell us, what have YOU done in the last 5 years to support the reconstruction of the Comintern?” We welcome criticism and self-criticism on the efforts to rebuild the Comintern. And we ask the reader: What did the opportunists and revisionists do to hinder us with the solution of the Comintern`s question? The truth is, that they all kept silence for 5 years ! Fact is: 5 years busy work for the foundation of the Comintern / ML = 5 years of lazy ignorance by the opportunists ! Was it by chance that there were only single world revolutionary comrades who started to move the “lump of rock” relying alone on their forces? We think, this was not by chance !
To say it in short words: The foundation of the Comintern / ML would neither be possible without the globalization of the proletarian class nor without a small steel group of disciplined and respected Marxist-Leninists who were for decades well educated by their Marxist-Leninist party and by the struggle of the Marxist-Leninist World Movement in life-times of comrade Enver Hoxha ! The foundation of the Comintern / ML would be impossible without these single steadfast and firm-principled comrades. The foundation of the Comintern / ML was the idea of these single comrades, and this idea was born because the time was ripe to overcome the weakness of the Marxist-Leninist World Movement which was caused by the missing of its central organization. The missing of the Comintern was the decisive motive for doing everything possibleand necessary to care for its reconstruction.
We were often asked: Was it valid to call us the right successors and “community of heirs” of Lenin`s and Stalin`s glorious Communist International of Lenin and Stalin? How can we justify to bear this honorable name? Where are our sections? Was our foundation a “rash affair” and “cheeky” – not to say “megalomaniacally”?
The Communist International does not fall from heaven to the earth and no one is born a master. One cannot really expect that single comrades stamp the Communist International from the floor. Of course, at present, it is not possible to produce “historical proofs". We did never claim to create a complete organization “compared” with the Comintern. We cannot hold a comparison between the Comintern and the Comintern / ML. Everything what we do is: striving for the example of the old Comintern, and to follow the Comintern with all our might and all our love. The only thing we can “prove” after 5 years of struggle, is that we feel determined to prepare the upbuilding of the new Comintern / ML in the spirit of the old Comintern and on the base of Marxism-Leninism, on the base of the five classics Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Enver Hoxha. No comrade shall deny that the name “Comintern / ML” is just in this moment only an indication for the determined struggle for the necessity of a powerful international party of the world proletariat. At present we have not yet this powerful international organization, but we are working to build it up. For example the Comintern / ML does not fulfill the Bolshevist party criteria compared with the Comintern.
An unfulfilled criterion would be for example, that you can only speak about a really international organization, if it consists of a modest number of sections from different countries, if it is supported by them. This standard was not yet reached by the Comintern / ML. Many other criterions are still missing. And it may happen in the worst case that we could be thrown backwards. The upbuilding of the Comintern is a long difficult process and certain setbacks are unavoidable. However, the process of the reconstruction has already successfully begun and cannot be reconversed. 5 years existence is already an earnest criterion of a serious organization with which the world of the revolutionary proletariat can count. The Comintern / ML did not come empty-handed. The Comintern / ML is not a formal matter of naming but for us matters the intrinsicality in first line. We prepared the fundamental ideological framework for the reconstruction of the Communist International. We tried to ease the developing process of the Comintern / ML by working out the ideological prerequisites, so that we can speed up the growing of an actually powerful international fighting party of the proletarians of all countries. We enter at new ground and we are conscious about the fact, that we do not come along without mistakes. But, please, tell us one single case, where something grows up without any faults and complications ( and the upbuilding of a new Communist International is indeed something complicated!)? We are willing and able to practice honestly self-criticism. Critisize us! Help us to overcome the difficulties! But do not treat the question of the Communist International as a “pansy”. We were the first who raised the question of the rebuilding of the Comintern, but we are therefore not responsible for the unsatisfactory situation as it is. The Comintern / ML is not guilty for all the omissions of the past. The Comintern / ML – in the contrary – tries to do her best to makeup for lost time and we appeal: Help us to build up the new Communist International !
We, some single communist world revolutionaries founded the Comintern / ML 5 years ago, because we were then already firmly convinced, that this act would not be a “leap in the dark”, but the fulfillment of an urgent and overripe and nondeferrable historical mission. With the beginning of the 21st century the world proletariat shall finally finish the mission which started by the October revolution: the creation of a socialist world. And the Comintern / ML was founded to show the way and to lead on the way – the way of the socialist world revolution. The revolutionaries practice will follow to the revolutionary ideas absolutely, legitimately and unstoppably.
We were and we are still convinced, that the Comintern / ML shall serve to the revolutionary world movement as its future ideological bulwark. If the Comintern / ML actually gets to this bulwark, or not this depends on the continuation of correct aims and correct strategy and tactics, depends on the ability to apply to the immortal teachings of the 5 classics, depends on the absolute faithfulness towards Marxism-Leninism, depends on constant firm-principled attitude and revolutionary flexibility, depends on the ability to resists all the revisionist influences. And this depends secondly on the precondition, if there will be enough suitable comrades in the world, who cooperate and who are willing and able to convert the correct line into correct practice. The Comintern/ML has only a chance to prosper if the workers convince themselves by their own experiences that the world revolutionary line is correct. The world revolutionary line has to be carried into the working class in such manner that the worker does understand our line as his own line, in such manner that Marxism-Leninism becomes his weapon in his own class struggle.
We have at all events no doubts about this, that the foundation of the Comintern / ML shall prove as a historical correctness. It shall prove as what it is: an inalienable necessity for the victory of the world proletariat. We shall step forward because we know the aims of the Marxist-Leninist World Movement, we know where we have to go. We have a world revolutionary prospect with which we build up the Comintern / ML. We made sure about the fact that we really buld up the Communist International. We don't follow the opportunist ideological line of Bernstein: „The Marxist - Leninist World Movement is everything – the world revolutionary ideas and aims are nothing." We as world revolutionaries do subordinate the theory of Marxism-Leninism as well as the world proletarian movement under the class aims of communism. And to realize these aims the world proletariat needs the Communist International as the most important instrument. If we wouldn't not follow this way, we would finally get into the marsh of the opportunism, unavoidably and unconditionally. If we would not believe in the Communist International, we would harm our common proletarian matter, we could not successfully work, we would fail in the end. Only half-hearted, undisciplined work can be dangerous and occupied by the revisionists to “take the lead”. Remember the dissolution of the Comintern!). Those who do underestimate the decisive meaning of the perspectives of the Communist International, do help the opponents and enemies of the Communist International .Believe it or not, they cultivate defaitism and capitulationism concerning one of the most important questions of the proletarian world revolution They drag back the Marxist - Leninist World Movement still further, if they want or not ( overestimations lead to the same results and consequences!). The advanced workers somewhere in the world, they long for the restrengthening of the powerful Communist International. We are not allowed to disappoint their enthusiasm. They put great hopes in the Communist International and we have to fulfil our duty honourably. They expect us as serious comrades who do their best to master our world revolutionary job. Those who spread doubts on the perspectives of the Communist International, those who try to destroy the hopes of the revolutionary workers in the whole world, those who harm the Proletarian Internationalism by destructions, violate and commit a rape on the most elementary demands of the world revolution.
Our ideas were constantly and permanently realized in the period of 5 years and the Comintern / ML became the only organization in this world who worked out theoretically the strategy and tactics of the coming socialist world revolution.
Are we Hoxhaists or not?
Of course, we are !
Some comrades ask us the question: Is it not confusing if you call yourself Hoxhaists? The Maoist abusiveness of the name „Hoxhaists“ is well-known. Maoists want to express „Hoxhaism“ as an deviation from Marxism-Leninism. But Hoxhaism is Marxism-Leninism and Maoism is the revisionist deviation from Marxism-Leninism. Historically and nowadays there were and there are no „other“ Marxist-Leninists than just the Hoxhaists, who unmasked Maoism as revisionism, as an anti-Marxist-Leninist ideology, as a world imperialist ideology. It is one of the most important merits of comrade Enver Hoxha that he purified the Marxist-Leninist World Movement from Maoist influences. So the answer is clear and distinct: No, comrades, calling us Hoxhaists is not at all confusing, because the naming of Marxist-Leninists is not equivalently an abondament towards the Maoists or to any other opportunists. Look at the historical development of the Marxism`s naming. At the beginning this word „Marxism“ was generally used as a swearword against Marx. But later on the word „Marxism“ was particularely used by the true Marxists in their struggle against the anarchists and generally against opportunism with all its branches to the life-times of Marx and Engels and also after that. The best example of a Marxist was comrade Lenin as the best disciple and follower of Marx and Engels. The whole opportunist II. Internation attacked Lenin and they derided Leninism as a „turning away“ from Marxism. The II. International had sworn to be true „Marxists“ and they treated Lenin as an „apostate“, as an „anti-marxist rebel“. The same thing happened with the Maoists. They call Enver Hoxha a „traitor“ of Marxism-Leninism because he critisized Maoism as an anti-Marxist-Leninist ideology. Enver was never a Maoist, but always a Marxist-Leninist – the best one who followed comrade Stalin. So Hoxhaism is not a swearword, but the correct definition of Marxism-Leninism of today. The Marxists are those comrades who defend Marxism, the teachings of Marx and Engels. The Leninists are those who defend Leninism, the teachings of Lenin and Stalin. The Hoxhaists are those who defend Hoxhaism, the teachings of Enver Hoxha and Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin. These 5 are altogether the classics of Marxism – Leninism. Enver Hoxha is the 5th classic of Marxism-Leninism. And this can be looked up and studied in the foundation document of the Comintern / ML under this link: http://ciml.250x.com/enverclass.htm.
So, the definition of Marxism-Leninism had to be completed: Marxism-Leninism of today is not the teaching of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin without Enver Hoxha. Marxism-Leninism is the teaching of Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin inclusively that of Enver Hoxha. This definition of 5 classics is the definition of the Comintern / ML since the foundation day, the 31st of December, 2000. And we are still the only ones all over this world, who defend Marxism-Leninism (the teachings of Enver Hoxha included.)
The revolutionary workers have turned to Marx in the struggle against opportunism in that times. The revolutionary workers have turned to Lenin in the struggle against opportunism in that times. The revolutionary workers have turned to Stalin in the struggle against opportunism in that time. And this happened alsoin the struggle against opportunism in our times: The revolutionary workers turned to Enver Hoxha. And the Comintern / ML is the only international organization who helped the world proletariat to turn to Enver Hoxha.
And today? The opportunists refuse to appreciate, recognize, respect and accept comrade Enver Hoxha as the 5th classic of Marxism-Leninism. The opportunists call „Hoxhaism“ whatever they like, but not as Marxism-Leninism - as it truely is. We called us Leninists without any surrender or renunciation of being Marxists, and we call us Hoxhaists without any surrender or renunciation of being Marxist-Leninists. It was inalienable for us communists to call us Leninists namely to save the Marxist Movement of that old heroic times. And in our times it is just the same if we communists call us Hoxhaists namely to save the present Marxist-Leninist World Movement. Hoxhaism is the only ideology that draws the demarcation line between Marxism-Leninism and such anti-Marxism-Leninism which is masked as „Marxism-Leninism“ at present. Once upon a time you could only be a true Marxists, if you apreciated Leninism. And today you can only be a true Marxist-Leninist, if you appreciate Hoxhaism - this is the core of the thing, this is the reason why the Comintern / ML was founded on the base of the 5 classics of Marxism-Leninism, the reason why the Comintern / ML decided with the first day of its foundation that comrade Enver Hoxha is a classic of Marxism-Leninism. We had to draw the demarcation-line, and the demarcation line is: Who is with Enver Hoxha or against him? = who is with Marxism-Leninism or against Marxism-Leninism? Dropping a clear decision for or against this demarcation-line, that is what makes it so confusing to get the right answer: Who is a Marxist-Leninist – and who is not? You can only overcome the confusion if you work out a clear – line – and that`s it what the Comintern / ML did within the last 5 years. Marxism-Leninism teaches that there is no unity with opportunism. The problem is that the opportunists hide behind this principle, with other words they do not hezitate to sign willingly that they are „ in accordance“ with this Marxist-Leninist principle. So you must let them sign their accordance with Hoxhaism with the intention to sort the sheep from the goats - at least a great deal of them. We do not have to forget the difference between words and deeds ! You cannot draw an demarcation-line without naming it. So this is not only a matter of contents but as well a matter of naming. We cannot do without naming our demarcation-line, if we want to ease the struggle against opportunism in the hands of the world proletariat. It is not an end in itself , if we Hoxhaists draw the demarcation-line. The demarcation-line is in first line necessary for the revolutionary struggle of the world proletariat against opportunism. Names come and go. Decisive is the content and not the form. People are not what they seem to be, but what they are doing. The deeds and not words make the difference: So we world revolutionaries, we proletarian internationalists, we Marxist-Leninists, we call us Hoxhaists just to make it easier for the world proletariat to differ us from the class enemies who are masked with „Marxism-Leninism“ (There are also some dangerous class enemies who mask with „Hoxhaism“ - but we come to these neo-revisionists later on in that chapter which deals with the struggle against revisionism). Times of confusion can onlybe changed into times of distinctions and clearness by the further development of Marxism-Leninism, by Hoxhaism, by the Hoxhaists and by nobody else.
Some other comrades ask us the question: Are you Hoxhaists or are you Marxist-Leninists? And they ask us: What is the difference between Marxism-Leninism and Hoxhaism? Our answer is: We Hoxhaists are Marxist-Leninists and there is no difference between Hoxhaism and Marxism-Leninism. Comrades, these questions are not correct questions, because you cannot ask: Is it „either – or?“
There is not Marxism-Leninism on the one hand and Hoxhaism on the other, because Hoxhaism is Marxism-Leninism. There are no Marxist-Leninists except Hoxhaists. The Hoxhaism is Marxism - Leninism and nothing else. The Hoxhaism includes everything, what Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin have made and done, plus the new things, with which Enver Hoxha has enriched the treasure vault of Marxism – Leninism. Let `s take an example - the struggle against revisionism. Marx Engels, Lenin and Stalin enriched the socialist science by their struggle against revisionism. The Hoxhaism includes this treasure vault plus the new struggle against revisionism: the struggle against revisionism in power. Supposing that revisionism came into power after the death of Stalin, then consequently neither Marx, nor Engels, nor Lenin and nor Stalin could have experienced the struggle against revisionism in power. The classics don`t belong to the species who die out. This is only the dream of the bourgeoisie: The bourgeoisie is not at all interested in a new classic of Marxism-Leninism - in the contrary - the bourgeoisie is doing everything to „disprove“ the classic Enver Hoxha. The bourgeoisie puts Marxism-Leninism as a dead- end, tries to check off socialism as an episode which landed on the manure heap of history. And the bourgeoisie has her lackeys within the Marxist-Leninist World Movement who help her with this job!). However comrade Enver Hoxha is a great example for the fact that Marxism – Leninism is still alive, always remaining young and immortal – able to produce new classics.
We can definitely speak about the Marxism - Leninism or about the Hoxhaismus (it is one and the same!). But we are not allowed to speak Marxism-Leninism and Hoxhaism (as something different). We cannot be Hoxhaists without being Marxist-Leninists and dialectically we cannot still remain as Marxist-Leninists without becoming Hoxhaists. All this can be studied in our documents. The Hoxhaism is not the teaching of comrade Enver Hoxha minus Marxism - Leninism. Hoxhaism is only a definition of the further development of Marxism - Leninism in the phase of the socialism with the revisionism at the power – and when Albania was the only socialist country in the world who resisted this power for many decades. And today the teaching of Enver Hoxha helps us to get socialism back [re-conquest, renaissance, rebirth, resurrection,restoration, re-erection of the socialism – as you like] , helps us to avoid that revisionism does not come to power a second time neither on a national stage nor on an international stage.
Summarized we state that comrade Enver Hoxha was not only the most outstanding Marxist-Leninist in his time after the death of comrade Stalin. He was not only the best follower and disciple of comrade Stalin. Enver Hoxha brought the Marxism-Leninism on a higher level and developed to the 5th classic of Marxism-Leninism. We shall patiently try to convince all comrades who are not yet conscious about the question of the 5th classic.
However we shall fight uncompromisingly against those who try to hinder us to do so. Those who struggle against Hoxhaism can never be Marxist-Leninists! And this means in consequence: No unity with Anti-Hoxhaists !
Hoxhaists should rank at the forefront, but they never claim or occupy a privileged special position „above“ all the others. Hoxhaism is not a special branch ( a branch next to other branches ) within the Marxist-Leninist World Movement. The Marxist-Leninist World Movement is the Hoxhaist World Movement, otherwise this movement would stop to be Marxist-Leninist, it would degenerate towards revisionism. There is no Hoxhaist World Movement beyond the Marxist-Leninist World Movement. The Hoxhaist World Movement is the Marxist-Leninist World Movement of today. Hoxhaists are not „super – Marxist – Leninists“. Hoxhaists are not an „avant-garde“ of the Marxist-Leninists, because an avantgarde of an avantgarde is nonsense,. Hoxhaists are strictly against any elitist fashion. Hoxhaists belong simply to the best forces of the world proletarian`s avantgarde – that `s it.. Hoxhaists are not obliged to be the „farest left wing among the Marxist-Leninists.“ Among Marxist- Leninists there are no „lefts“ or „rights“. Hoxhaists are neither „lefts“ nor „rights“ - they are Marxist-Leninists though they always struggle against „left wings“, right wings and centrist wings as persons or groups of deviations from Marxism-Leninism. But this is quite another thing. Wherever deviations of Marxism-Leninism appear, Hoxhaists shall struggle against them. Marxism-Leninism can only be defended by Hoxhaism against all deviations.
One thing is for sure: After 5 years it is not only important to be a member of this or that Marxist-Leninist organization, group or party in a single country, but more and more important to be a member of the Comintern / ML. Marxism-Leninism teaches that you cannot be a genuine proletarian internationalist without struggling for the upbuilding of the Communist International. Today it is primarily important to be part of the avant – garde of the world proletariat, to rise the struggle of the world revolution higher than every other revolutionary struggle. The character of Hoxhaism is not nationally restricted within the Albanian borders. The character of Hoxhaism is internationalist. Hoxhaism belongs to the world proletariat. Hoxhaism is the only revolutionary ideology of the world proletariat. World socialism, world communism is our highest goal which we are striving for and just this is Hoxhaism.
Why is comrade Enver Hoxha a classic of Marxism-Leninism?
The Comintern / ML defines the teachings of the 5th classic of the Marxism – Leninismus, defines Hoxhaism as follows ( Hoxhaism is the ensemble of these 4 points):
The experiences of the original causes and genesis of the proletarian ideology, the process of working out and complete the socialist science, proves that it was, is and will always be developed in the struggle against the bourgeois and petty-bourgeois ideology, against opportunism and revisionism. The whole historical, present and future struggle against revisionism is the origin and source of the further development of Marxism-Leninism. Hoxhaism is therefore the highest stage of the Marxist-Leninist theory, is the most developed stage of the struggle against bourgeois and petty-bourgeois ideology and its influence wihtin the revolutionary movemnet, until now.
Marxism is the international proletarian ideology which developed in the struggle against opportunism in connection with the struggle for the Paris Commune, the 1st and 2nd International. Leninism developed in the international struggle against opportunism of the 2nd International in connection with the October revolution, the Soviet Union and the Comintern. Leninism developed in the international struggle for the upbuilding and completion of socialism against the danger of the restoration of capitalism and the world capitalist encirclement.
1. Hoxhaism results from the socialist Albania as the leader of the Marxist-Leninist World Movement which developed socialism in the struggle against modern revisionism at power. Hoxhaism is the Marxist-Leninist ideology in the period of imperialism when revisionism came to state-power to degenerate, to decompose to liquidate, to destroy socialism, to restore the capitalist world which has wiped out the existence of socialism. Hoxhaism is the Marxist-Leninist ideology which developed in the struggle for the defence, strengthening and completion of socialism against the whole capitalist-revisionist world included the class enemy within socialist Albania and within the Marxist-Leninist World Movement. Particularely, Hoxhaism is the struggle of Marxism-Leninism against the Mao Tsetung Ideas. And in generally, Hoxhaism is the highest and present form of the revolutionary struggle of the Marxist-Leninist theory against the highest and present forms of the counter-revolutionary revisionist „theories“ - on an international scale.
The teachings of Enver Hoxha are the Marxism - Leninism on a progressed and furthest stage of the epoch of the imperialism, the epoch of the progressed world crisis, rottenness and parasitical decomposition of the dying world capitalism,. Particularly the teachings of Enver Hoxha are teachings against those particular capitalist degeneration forms as social imperialism and socialist fascism which emerged from the socialism. Hoxhaism is the teaching of Marxism-Leninism within that phase when the whole capitalist-revisionist world struggled for the destruction of the „socialism in a single country“ by help of the revisionist countries and by the help of the revisionists in the own socialist country.
The teachings of Enver Hoxha are the teachings of a new form of the socialist revolution`s further development - the theory and tactics of the Anti-revisionist and Anti-social fascist fight of a socialist country in a united front with the revolutionary world proletariat under the conditions of the capitalist-revisionist world, in general; and it is the theory and tactics of the defense and re-conquest of the working class` power, the strengthening and the re-establishment of the dictatorship of the proletariat, in particulare - the teachings for the power of the proletariat`s world dictatorship, for the victory of the socialism by bursting the imperialist - sozialimperialist chain, for the victory of the restored socialism over the restored capitalism, for the victory over revisionism at power.
2. The Hoxhaism is the victorious teaching of the „socialism in a single country“ which has developed despite the degeneration of another socialist country, despite the restoration of the capitalism in another socialist country, despite the revisionism at the power for decades, despite the capitalist – revisionist, international encirclement. The Hoxhaism is the teaching of the anti-revisionist re-enforcement and anti-revisionist regeneration of the socialism, is the teaching for decades of victorious resistance against the whole bourgeois - revisionist world.
3. The Hoxhaismus is the further development of the Marxism - Leninism under the conditions of the Anti-fascist fight and its directly transition into a teaching of the victorious fight for the dictatorship of the proletariat. The Hoxhaism is the teaching of the successfully renewed break of the imperialistic chain, namely under the conditions of the fascist occupation of a country. The Hoxhaism is the teaching of the construction of the socialism of a country especially on the ruins of a fascist dictatorship. The Hoxhaism can be recognized as a teaching of the elimination of the fascism by the socialism on the national scale and thus one prerequisite for the victory over the fascism and over the imperialistic war on the international scale.
4. The Hoxhaism is a proof of the correctness of the universal and international character of the Bolshevism. The Hoxhaism furnished proof that the Bolshevism wasn't a national teaching limited under Lenin and Stalin, under Russian conditions. Hoxhaism proved that Bolshevism wasn't limited as a tactic for all in the times of Lenin and Stalin, was not a timely limited appearance of the past, but a teaching for the whole epoch of imperialism and the socialist revolution, a living international, immortal teaching, suitable and useful in another (even smaller) country. The Hoxhaism is the further development of the Bolshevist teachings of Lenin and Stalin. The Hoxhaism is the further development of the teaching of the dictatorship of the proletariat. The teaching of comrade Enver Hoxha is the most important contribution for the definitely invincible world`s Bolshevism, is the most important contribution to the victory of the socialist world revolution and the establishment of the dictatorship of the world proletariat- since the death of Stalin.
The Hoxhaism of today
The Hoxhaism – as already pointed out - has followed from the fight against the modern revisionism at power, against restored capitalism. Today, Hoxhaism develops in the fight against the Neo-revisionism (Neo-revisionism = anti-revisionism in words and resuscitation (re-smuggling in) of the revisionism in deeds) to restore such socialism which is a qualified guarantee against any repetitive errors of capitalist restoration.
Hoxhaism of today is the struggle against those traitors who helped the world imperialists to smash socialist Albania and who helped them with the degenerating process of the Marxist-Leninist Movement which was cut off the socialist Albania. The Hoxhaism of today is, however, not alone a struggle for the restoration of the socialism`s status in life-times of comrade Enver Hoxha, but moreover a struggle for the final, the guaranteed victory over revisionism in general and last not least on an international scale.
It may not be forgotten that the struggle of Hoxhaism is a struggle of a whole period starting from the victorious struggle against revisionism at power under the conditions of socialism in a single country and a period ending with the worldwide victorious struggle against capitalist restoration. Hoxhaism has to be proved as the victorious Marxist-Leninist ideology of the revolutionary world proletariat over the counter-revolutionary ideology of world imperialism, over the revisionist ideology on an international stage. We have to differ three stages: first stage is the Hoxhaism in power in a single socialist country ( the former socialist Albania), second stage is the re-conquest of socialism by Hoxhaism in a situation where socialism is not any more in power (the stage we are in now) and third stage is the Hoxhaism` s world power. The period of today`s Hoxhaism is the Hoxhaism`s transferation from a national stage towards the international stage of power. If you want to understand and struggle for present Marxism-Leninism you have to rise Hoxhaism from the first step of development uninterruptedly to the last step of its development. You cannot fulfill this task if you ignore the fact that the Hoxhaism of today and the Hoxhaism of yesterday are the same in their nature, but diffent in their developing forms according to the further development of the class-struggle and the socialist processes all over the world. Our task is to bring back Hoxhaism to power through its further revolutionary development, through the further development of our Hoxhaist, anti-revisionist struggle.
Without further development of Hoxhaism you cannot bring back socialism to power, neither in a single country, nor internationally. 5 years struggle of the Comintern / ML can be characterized as 5 years struggle for the further development of Hoxhaism.
Further it may not be forgotten, that we Hoxhaists do not simply struggle for the restoration of socialism in the former forms under former conditions - not confined as a struggle for the restoration in Russia and Albania, not confined as a struggle for socialism in a single country, not confined as a struggle for the destruction opf bourgeois dictatorship in this por that country. We may not forget that our struggle above all is the struggle for the victory of the socialist proletarian wordl revolution, is the struggle for world socialism and communism, a future world society – established on the ruins of the dictatorship of the world bourgeoisie.
The Hoxhaists of today direct their aims ont he socialist world revolution as a matter of priority, as a matter of the final victory of Marxism-Leninism by speeding up the ongoig developing process of the class-struggle as a class- struggle of the whole revolutionary world proletariat , by anquering world socialist consciousness within the world proletarian movement, by rising the world proletarian movement onto the stage of the Marxist-Leninist World Movement, by rising the stage of the proletarian internationalism onto the stage of the socialist internationalism with the Hoxhaists at the top.
The Hoxhaism at the power was the Hoxhaism at the power in only a single socialist country of the world under the conditions of the imperialist-revisionist embracement of two - an imperialist and an social imperialist - super power as well as of the other imperialist and revisionist countries, with other words the encirclemant of the complete capitalist-revisionist world. Today's Hoxhaism is the fight for the power of the world socialism under the conditions of the completely globalized and united world imperialism (under the present leadership of the USA imperialism).
Well, we Hoxhaists of today differ the process of socialism`s restoration from the processes which took place in the period of the upbuilding of the first socialist countries in the last century. The socialism as it existed in times of Lenin, Stalin and Hoxha will change by the ongoing process of the globalized world imperialism at the moment. So future socialism will not be only a simple copy of the former socialism, but socialism on a higher stage of development, on today's stage of developments of a globalized world as a result of a globalized class struggle by a globalized consciousness of a globalized proletariat. The socialist world revolution gets a new quality which cannot be compared with the former quality of the class-struggle in the 19th and 20th century. That class- struggle had many national components. The globalization of today develops more and more typical international components by which the former national components are gradually forced into the back ground. And consequently this will change the face of modern socialism. That`s why we Hoxhaists of today try to put the globalized class-struggle with all its strategy and tactics in the foreground. That`s why we Hoxhaists of today are looking for new internationalist forms of class-struggle. The globalized world imperialism has pulled down old level-crossing barriers, has developed the world productive forces on higher steps and made the way free for the globalized socialization, for globalized socialism.The Hoxhaists of today put therefore their fingers on the missing Communist International as the center of the conscious carrier of the proletarian world revolution. We give the world revolution a new meaning and understanding not only for the proletariat in this or that country, but moreover for the whole world proletariat as one class – a socialist revolution of one international class.
The socialism, the Marxism-Leninism, the revolutionary Marxist-Leninist World Movement cannot live only of memories of comrade Enver Hoxha, as a heroic historical episode: What we need as Hoxhaists is a new clear international socialist orientation as it was worked out in the general line of the Comintern / ML. We have the old programme of the Comintern (1926) and we have the strategy and tactics of the socialist world revolution worked out by the Comintern / ML ( 2001-2002). Both is combined on the internationalist banner of the Comintern / ML, a banner under which a new generation of Hoxhaist will be grown up and educated on an international stage.
The socialism in a single country and the proletarian world revolution
We conclude from globalization that the socialist fight in the single countries shall show its true and full internationalist character by the internationalization of the proletarian class-struggle and by the ongoing development of the Hoxhaist world party. There shall come strong impulses from the globalized class-struggle towards the proletariat in each country, especially to the proletariat of those countries who are already deeply involved in the globalization process by which the process of the changing international class-structure became a progressive dynamic stage. It is the globalization which pushes forward the class-struggle in every single country and which gives it a new quality of international unificaton. And this is characteristic for the new class-struggle in the single countries because its itensification shall animate and accelerate the processes of the world revolution, is a mutual revival of the socialist revolution everywhere on earth in general and especially concentrated in the industrial centers of the globalized world. Globalization awakens and stimulates enormously the colossal forces of the revolutionary world proletariat, shall accelerate the international class-contradictions, shall lead to the sharpening of the polarization of the two main classes of the world, shall force existential conflicts within the world imperialist system, shall enter a step to the international power of the proletariat which could not be reached during the period of the „socialism in a single country“. However this historical step towards the global power of the proletariat would not be possible without the decisive step of the workers power in a single country. Marxism-Leninism teaches, if the proletariat proved historically the seizure of the power in a single country, it shall consequently prove the seizure of its power on an international stage, because the proletariat is an international class which mission is to establish its own world socialist system. This international system of the proletariat can only be established and (maintained!) if the power of the world bourgeoisie is completely smashed, so that world capitalism cannot find anymore any retreat, that it cannot regenerate with its reverse transfer capacitance to support the restoration of capitalism as it worked by the former world capitalist-revisionist encirclement, so that it will be impossible to strangle socialism in a single country by the help of revisionist enzymes which were working successfully in a socialist country of the 20th century.
The socialism in a single country has produced the historical proof, that the leading cadres of the workers have developed a hundred times more fastly and more thoroughly under the proletarian power than under the power of the capital. The international leading cadres will grow a thousand times more fastly and more thoroughly under the international power of the proletariat than under the proletarian power of a single socialist country. But there many other essential experiences from the socialism in a single country which are very important for world socialism. We choose only four:
1. The proletariat of a single country can break through the chain of world imperialism only at a certain position and under certain conditions, which makes it possible and easier for the world bourgeoisie to reintegrate and close the link by efforts of the restoration of capitalism in the socialist country which teared away from the capitalist world system. The world proletariat is not alone able to break the front of the world capital at a certain position - this was already successfully done by the proletariat of a single country - , but at nearly every other position. The world proletariat does not alone break through the most weakened link of the world imperialist chain. Its mission is to smash the world imperialist chain at a whole. It is the global class-struggle at the whole world front! The struggling at the world front is more advantagous by breaking trough this or that link of the world imperialist chain. It is as well easier for the proletariat as more difficult for the bourgeoisie.
2. The loss of the socialist perspectives of the construction of socialism in a single country which is isolated and threatened by the bourgeois-revisionist encirclement, is not so highly endangered under the conditions of the world socialism and at least under the conditions of the socialism in a few countries. Thus the struggle of the restoration of the capitalismthe by the new bourgeoisie would be much more difficult under the conditions of world socialism or at least under socialism in some countries than the restoration of one single socialist country (as it happened in the 20th century).
3. The future danger of the loss of the international revolutionary perspectives is lower under the conditions of the power of the world proletariat than the danger under the conditions of the construction of the socialism in an only and single, isolated socialist country. Simultaneously the danger of the restoration of the world capitalism is substantially restricted by the existence of the world socialism, because world socialism restricts the possibilities of capitalism to rely on a hinterland.
4. The degree of probability of the danger that a Marxist - Leninist party could lose its leading position and in consequence the degree of probability of its transformation into an appendage of the state apparatus and as well that of the party`s revisionist degenration, is much higher under the conditions of a single socialist country than under the conditions of the socialist world republic. If there exists a Communist International at the top of world socialism then a Marxist - Leninist party of every country won't run the risk of losing its leading position so easily - as this was the case in the past. The socialist world state is the only guarantee for the prospering of every other socialist state, is a guarantee for the next step to abolish at all the state in the classless society, in the period of communism.
It is obvious that the establishment of a world system of socialism is advantegeous for the socialist system in every single country – moreover this means the full guarantee of socialism which was not realized by the first socialist countries , the Soviet Union of Lenin and Stalin, and the Socialist Albania of Enver Hoxha. To learn from their experiences we have to concentrate on a better strategy and tactics for the world revolution, for the concret question of how the world proletariat can seize the power in the world.
Well, at present we are interested in all the valuable historical experiences of the „socialism in a single country" to find an answer of the question how we can work out and realize the idea of the derivation from the socialism in a“ single“ country to the socialism in all countries of the world? How can we achieve the demanded harmonically networking socialist world system? What can we contribute to the treasure vault of the 5 classics of Marxism-Leninism concerning the theory of the world revolution under the present conditions of the globalization? We have to compare the former conditions of world revolution - in times when the 5 classics were living – with the present conditions. We have to work out the conformities and the differences caused by the changing times and circumstances.
In principle there is no Marxist - Leninist World Movement without the world revolutionary theory by which it is led. In principle this theory does not belong to only a proletariat in this or that country, but it belongs to all proletarians in a similar manner, it belongs to the whole world proletariat. The Marxism - Leninism is the generalization of the experiences of the revolutionary movement of the workers of all countries - moreover: Marxism – Leninism ist the generalization of the experience of the globalized class struggle of the world proletariat as one and only international class. The Comintern / ML pointed out that the Marxist-Leninists, that the revolutionary workers all over the world, have to get fully familiar with the deep meaning of this decisive difference. They have to learn that the essence, the nature, the contents, the aims are still the same but the form of the globalized class- struggle of one and only international class is on a higher level than the class-struggle of the proletariat in all countries during the 20th century. The globalized class-struggle is mainly the new typical form of the class-struggle in our 21st century. Marxism-Leninism of today is therefore the generalized experiences of the globalized leverage of global instruments which serve to the modern world proletarian class struggle.The class-struggle in the „own“ country as well gets a higher level under these conditions of the globalized class-struggle. Therefore the Comintern / ML worked out a new strategy and tactics of the socialist world revolution under the present situation of globalization and that`s what the Marxist-Leninists urgently needed to unite under the banner of a new world revolutionary general line. The Comintern / ML is a new type of Communist International: the Hoxhaist Type of a Globalized Communist International. The Communist International is not a sort of an international center which coordinates the work of the single parties with the aim to support the class-struggle of their own country ( with the fatal consequence of its dissolution after their „completed“ growth and development!). The Comintern / ML generalized the experiences of the Comintern`s dissolution in the „general line of the Comintern / ML. The Communist International is in first line and essentially the Communist party of the world proletariat – that makes the difference! The Marxist - Leninist parties in this or that country cannot change the theory of the world revolution after their own ideas. There is only one proletariat and only one theory of the world revolution. They are all led by the same Marxist-Leninist theory, which is a theory with international and internationalist characteristics, which is a world ideology of the world proletariat. And this means in consequence that it is valid not alone for the party in this or that country but valid as a whole for the parties in all countries. Today, this can only be realized and achieved by the Hoxhaist world party which expresses the common interests, theory, the willing and acting of the whole world proletariat. The theory of the world revolution has to be worked out by the Communist International and by the support of the Marxist-Leninist party in every country. By whom else? There is no doubt about it that the Communist International is the pioneer of the world revolutionary theory of Marxism-Leninism. And it is as only as good as the support of every single party and every single comrade all over the world. The generalization of the experiences of the globalized class-struggle is only as good as the development of the globalization of the Marxist-Leninist parties, and the globalization of their common class-struggle!
The socialist world revolution learns from all the previous revolutions (from the single ones in particular and from all of them in a whole, in general) - even if they are not of the same type. The previous revolution leaves its inclompeted tasks to the following revolution. The socialist world revolution shall complete everything which was left as unsolved problems by all the previous revolutions. Every defeat is a prime example for the thoroughness of the next revolution. The setback of the socialism in a single country is a also a useful and needed part of the future success of the world revolution. Everything which isn't solved by the first revolution, gets solved by the next revolution on a higher level, which means that the permanence of the world revolutionary process culminates inevitably to the point where the old world capitalism is too weak to survive and where simultaneously the world socialism is strong enough to take the place of the deceased. This comes up to the whole science of the socialist world revolution: The socialist world revolution solves the decisive problem of the guaranteed victory of the socialism in a single country. The socialist world revolution finishes successfully all the lacks and weaknesses of the socialist revolution in a single country by its suppressed demand and places it higher onto the step-like curve. The beginning of the world socialist system is simultaneously the end of socialism in a single country after a long prospering period of its development. Then the solution of the communism is near. This is simply and solely, the entirely hiristorical undisputed merit of the Comintern / ML: the socialist world revolution is the most important science of the world in the history of mankind. This science of the world revolution has to be studied earnestly and thoroughly, has to be developed and in the first lineit has to be mastered – otherwise the Communist International is incapable to lead and organize the world proletariat.
The power of the proletarians of all countries is based in their uniformation as one organized, conscious international class. The formation as a conscious world class enables the world proletariat to open the doors to the classless world. This global formation process of the world proletariat is simultaneously a formation process of the classless society, which can only be reached on a world`s scale. Last not least the consciousness of the developing process of the world proletariat depends on the condition of the Marxist - Leninist World Movement as the subjective factor, but it is based on the developing process of the globalization of the world capitalist economy as the objective factor. The global being of the world proletariat determines its global consciousness. These subjective and objective factors cause each other dialectically, in which the objective factor can be influenced and accelerated but not be anulled or abrogated . The Communist International has to consider the economical rules of the globalization`s development. The globalized productive forces are the most mobile and revolutionary elements of the world capitalist production, but they are – in the result – destroyed by the world economic crisis. This crisis is the world revolution`s economic basis. The globalized incongruity of the whole world productive forces on the one hand and the worldcapitalist private ownership on the other hand is the objective origin of the ongoing world revolutionary process. And the world revolution`s destination is finally to remove this global incongruity by the destruction of the world capitalist ownership of the means of production by the worldwide socialization of the globalized productive forces, by world socialist ownership of the means of world production. The economic law taht the relations of production must necessarily conform with the character of the productive forces has to be forcing its globalized way. It is an international economic law and this means that ther elations of production must necessarily internally be conformed with the global character of the productive forces. Without the existence of the world proletariat who seizes the power through the world revolution it is impossible to activate this essential international economic law. The socialist world economic system could not survive if the Communist International would not act according to this economical law of the unconditional conformation of the relations of production with the character of the productive forces on an international stage. With regard to the future the resistance of the world bourgeoisie is thousand times stronger than the resistance of the whole reactionary classes in a single country. So the prerequisite of the world proletariand power`s seizure is not only the world revolutionary consciousness as the subjective factor. To be victorious the world proletariat needs to be a strong international class also in hence of its quantification in the course of the globalization. And this depends on the ability to overcome traditional national borders of the former worker`s movement, depends on the ability to change consciously all the hundreds of national worker`s movements into one and only international worker`s movement led by it`s own international centers.
Of course, the future belongs to the world proletariat, which grows and strengthens with every new day. But this is not enough. The triumphal march of the world proletariat is long and hard – and not without any defeats.
Today It is really possible that the world proletariat economically overcomes the world bourgeoisie. Today it is possible that the world proletariat creates the basis of its own economic system of the world socialism. World industry is globalized and demands for its global socialization. The global expropriation of the global exploiter.s is now urgently needed to develop the socialization of the global large-scale production, to combine the global agriculture with the world industry as a world economic combinate, to create the global soviet cooperatives, global kolkhozes, to settle the connection between the countries on the basis of the exchange of agricultural products and industrial products , etc.
Additionally it is possible for the world proletariat to care about the necessity to close and liquidate all those international channels by whichclasses are coming into being and by which world capital is primarily generated. The world proletariat has in general all front-end equipments as disposal to create an alround international network of production- and distribution conditions which directly and immediately lead to the abolition of the classes in the world scale. The world proletariat is able to improve the material and cultural predicament of millions of people who are in need and misery. The world proletariat can achieve better living conditions for the majority of the world`s population within shortest time and everywhere on earth, where it is most urgently needed. This is the most important measurement to ensure the dictatorship of the world proletariat by the support of the biggest portion of the complete world population, to pull it on the side of the world proletariat and to build up the socialist world order and to base it on always safer social conditions.
The world proletariat is - as the only force in the whole world - able to transform the exhausted bourgeois states (who are on their last legs) into blossoming socialist states by getting rid of the foreign capital`s exploitation. Thereby the world proletariat contributes mainly to improvement of the satisfaction of the national and cultural needs of all countries, basically and with a lasting effect.The ruling world proletariat counts on every proletariat, which leads its own country within the community of the world republic. New forms of the alliance will develop into the mutual support between the world proletariat and the socialist proletariat in every country. Within shortest time the new world socialist order will establish the truth of its superiority in comparison with every other former world order - especially with the world imperialistic order. At the top of the world there are now the millions of world producers themselves and not any more the minority of world capitalist parasites.
The socialist world economy - methodically operating - will be the strongest summarized, concentrated and effective economy in the history of the mankind. The present capitalist world economic system has nothing to oppose it - but instead: collapse by the inner contradictions, world crisis tossed about, accumulation of more and more unemployment, poverty and misery by exploitation and oppression of the majority of the world population on the one side, and gigantic accumulation of riches, living in luxury etc. by a tiny world minority on the other side who take out the stitches of the destiny of the mankind in her bloody, warlike claws. Boils -- nothing as boils, --destruction, nothing as destruction. These are the remainders of the capitalist world economic system after more than hundred year. 5 years of Comintern / ML is a little but useful piece of shortening this epoch of the world imperialism.
Everything was foreseen clearly by Stalin:
„As long as we find ourselves in the capitalist encirclement as long as the proletariat at least hasn't won in a row of countries, we cannot therefore regard our victory as definitively. Consequently we cannot regard the country of the dictatorship of the proletariat as protected against dangers from outside, no matter which successes will be demonstrated by the upbuilding of socialism. To win definitely one must therefore achieve the removal of the present capitalist encirclement by socialist surroundings. One must achieve that the proletariat is victorious in at least a couple of countries. Only then our victory can be regarded as definitely." ( Stalin, Volume 8, page 235 ; German edition). (Underlined and stressed]by the editorial stuff).
„One can hardly doubt abou the fact that the darkest and worst reaction in all capitalist countries would follow after the destruction of the Soviet Republic.“ ( Stalin, Volume 9, page 123; German edition ).
The capitalist-revisionist encirclement has won against the socialism in a single country. This is a fact or not? Today there is no really existing socialist country on earth -- this is a fact which only the revisionists try to deny. Of course it is always the case that the victory of the socialism in a single country is simultaneously a means, a lever, a way and a base, a matter how the world revolution must be tackled. This is what the classics always taught and this is still necessary. There cannot be any world socialism, which is not based on the socialism of the single countries, unless a „world socialist“ castle in the air. - this pipe dream would satisfy the world bourgeoisie but not the world proletariat. To make world socialism come true one needs at least a row of socialist countries as its base and levers, one needs a world socialist camp, a world socialist center which is able to oppose the world capitalist camp victoriously, one needs economic, social and national prerequisites for the elimination of the capitalist world order, one needs the power of the world proletariat.
One mustn't mix up the victory of the socialism in the world scale with the victory of the socialism in all countries of the world. One may not lump together both these different concepts. They cannot be devided or contrasted as idependent matters. If only the victory is safe in the world scale then the requirements for the victory of the socialism in all countries can be obtained. The proletarian world revolution starts with the seizure of the political power of the world proletariat, by which it cancreate its own world socialist power center - and the socialist revolution of the world proletariat is finally crowned by the victory of the socialism in all countries of the world.
In the name of the victory of the socialist world revolution we shall carry higher and higher the torch of the Soviet Union of Lenins and Stalins together with the torch of Albania of Enver Hoxha. For all times socialism in both countries will remain as an unshakeably example for all working people of the world, and both these torches will always go on burning to enlighten all the suppressed and oppressed , and we Marxist – Leninists will have a watchful eye on them, so that the revolutionary fire of both the socialist countries cannot be put out by anyone. With both of these two leaping torches we shall step forward from the epoch of the victory of the socialism in a single country to the next epoch of the victory of the socialism in the world scale - reminding the words of Stalin – especially its deep actual meaning,
„... that it isn't permitted for a Marxist, to mix up such miscellaneous appearances like the ` victory of the socialism in a single country ` and the ` victory of the socialism in the world scale` and to to lump everything together. One mustn't forget , that these miscellaneous appearances reflect two completely different epoches which do not differ only temporally (what is very important), but also in their whole nature (...)
The period of the victory of the socialism in the world scale is in so far different from the period of the victory in a single country as it primarily liquidates the imperialism in all countries, and as it removes the aim of the nation`s domination as well as the fear of the danger of the nation`s enslavement, as it withholds mitrust an national hostility from the ground, as it unites ther nations within a uniform socialist world economy and thus creates the really conditions which are necessary for the gradual fusion of all nations as a whole. This is the fundamental difference between these two periods " ( Stalin, Volume 11, page 307; German edition of the KPD/ML )
„It would be a mistake to believe that the first stage of the period of the world dictatorship of the proletariat shall be the beginning of the dying of the nations and the national languages, the beginning of the growing of an uniform common language. On the contrary the first stage in whose course the national oppression will be removed finally will be the stage when the formerly suppressed nations and national languages will develop and blossom out. This is that stage in which the equal rights of the nations will be established, the stage in which the mutual national suspicion will disappear, the stage by which the international connections between the nations shall be strengthended and consolidated.“ (Stalin, Volume 11, page 311, German edition).
„So as the mankind can only come to the abolition of the classes by the transition period of the dictatorship of the suppressed classes, it can only come to the unavoidable fusion of the nations by the transition period of the complete liberation of the suppressed nations, which means: by the freedom of the nations self-determination, by their realized right of self-separation“ ( Lenin, Volume 20, page 135/1369; German edition ) .
„Not until the second stage of the period of the world dictatorship of the proletariat , to such extent as uniform socialist world economy will be established instead of the capitalist world economy – Not until in this stage there will be the beginning of some kind of common language, not until this stage the nations shall demand for the necessity to have a common international language besides their own national languages - to the relief of the communication among each others and to the relief of the economic, cultural and political cooperation. In this stage the national languages and a common international language shall co-exist. It is possible that at first there will be not only one single common world economy center for all nations with a common language but several zonal economy centers for single groups of nations with a common language, for every special group of nations and that these centers shall be united later on to a common socialist world economy center with one common language for all nations.
In the following stage of the period of the world dictatorship of the proletariat, if the socialist world economy center were consolidated to a certain extent and if socialism will be an integral element of the everyday life of the people, if the nations will be convinced about the advantages of a common language in comparison with the own national languages – then the national differences and languages will beginn to die and to make way for a common world language. In my opinion this is approximately the picture of the future of the nations, the picture of the development of the nations on the way to their future fusion " (Stalin, Volume 11, page 311/312 , German edition).
The world proletariat and its internationalist world party are the only force who shall lead and reconquer the socialist nations in the direction shown by Stalin – towards full blossomming:
International alliance of the world proletariat with the working farmers for the liquidation of the relics of the world capitalism in the name of the victorious construction of the world socialism; elimination of the relics of the international oppression in the name of the socalist world republic; elimination of the relics of the world imperialism, the kosmopolitism in the name of the victory of the socialist internationalis and the world socialist friendship of the people, united front in the fight against the restoration of the world capitalism, united front in the fight against the international class society and for the classless world comunity, for the world communism, - this is the world revolutionary ideological line of the Comintern / ML.
If we we are now in the situation of the temporary defeat of the socialism and not any more in the situation of the victory of a single socialist country, then we are logically not yet able to lean on the single socialist country as the locomotive, as the lever and base of the world revolution - as we learnt this in former times (at all events not at present). Meanwhile we have to fix another decisive starting point for our strategy and tactics. What kind of conclusions do we have to draw? Doing nothing as waiting for the socialist revolution in a single country? Okay but what to do if the socialist revolution in a single country doesn't come? Waiting for another 60 years (last socialist revolution occured Albania)? Or waiting until the last country in the world will be ripe for its socialist revolution = world revolution by a drumbeat? Nothing happens by itself. The history teaches us that we cannot reach on direct way to the world socialism. The history teaches further, that we cannot automatically and directly reach the station of world socialism without changing some stations. To stop the world socialist train in a single socialist country and not to start it from there, is not only a stoppage for the socialist country, not only a stoppage for the world revolution, but a stoppage of socialism in general. To fight for the socialism in a country is an international(ist) task and only revolutionary as far as it is continued up to the world revolution.
„This task [ promote the advancement of the working class – ed.] consists not in the strengthening of any ` nationall ` state, but in the strengthening of the socialist and consequently the international [underlined by the ed.] state, in the cause of which every strengthening of this state contributes to the power of the complete international working class " ( Stalin, Volume 13, page 94; German edition, KPD/ML ).
The fight for the socialism in a single country gets reactionary if it is reduced on the solution of the national question and if the international aim of the world revolution was sacrificed. The one way is the bourgeois nationalist and the other way is the proletarian internationalist way. The one way leads to the strengthening of the socialism in a single country, the other way leads to the restoration of the capitalism in a single country. There is no cross and there cannot be any cross. It's either one thing or the other! The task consists of an irreconcilable fight against those reconsiliatory elements in the internationalist question of the socialism in a single country, also in future. These elements do or will not understand the necessity of the immediate and inseparable connection with the world revolution (see the criticism in the general line of the Comintern / ML on the decisions of the VII. World Congress of the Comintern).
What is the dialectical relationship between the socialism in a single country and the socialism in the world scale? Full unfolding of the socialism in a single country for the purpose of preparation of the conditions for the world socialism = prerequisite of the socialism in all countries of the world for the fusion of all socialist countries of the world for the (finally) dying of the socialist nations, for the dying of the socialist states, for the dying of the classes on the whole world, for the transition to the classless world comunity for the world communism!
The metaphysical philosophy, the vulgarization, the absolutization, the idealizing historical transfiguration of the Marxist-Leninist theory of the „socialism in a single country" can never serve to the necessary defense of this valuable experience of the proletarian dictatorship in a single country. On the contrary the bourgeois-revisionist influence consists just of the rejection of the internationalist spirit of socialism in a single country. We are never allowed to mix up „rejection“ with „negation“. The world socialism is the negation`s negation of „socialism in a single country“. [we put „socialism in a single country“ in quotation marks to stress the character of the only existing socialism on a national scale in demarcation of the single socialist country under the international conditions of world socialism – marked by the ed.] There is an indispensable dialectical cohesion between world socialism and „socialism in a single country“. Restoration of capitalism in a „single socialist country“ is the deepest and hardest counter-revolutionary process against the world revolution. If you do not fight against capitalist restoration by defending the internationalist power of the socialist single country, if you only fight against capitalist restoration from a nationalist point of view, then you are not a Marxist-Leninist. To defend socialism in „a single country“ does mainly mean: the defense of the ongoing process of the world revolution. The anti-revisionist struggle against the world revolution does not stop with the collapse of socialism in a single country, in the contrary. Herewith we are hitting the nail on the head. Who is actively struggling against revisionism in the question of the world revolution? If you look around the world, there are only a very few comrades who are conscious about this question and there are even less comrades who really fight for the solution of this question actively. Excuse us, but this is our subjective impression, this is what we observed. The Comintern / ML – at present – seems to be the only organization on the globe who brings up this painful subject: the necessary anti-revisionist struggle for the world revolution. The anti-revisionist struggle for the world revolution - this is the highest form of the anti-revisionist struggle in general.
The „socialism in a single country“ isn't our ultimately final goal and never was the ultimately final goal of the Marxist-Leninists. We are not the revisionists who put an end to the „socialism in a single country“. We as Marxist-Leninists could not and cannot struggle for the „socialism in a single country“ without the struggle for the world revolution, because we are proletarian internationalists: „the international class of the proletariat is free not untill it is free on a global stage“. The „socialism in a single country“ is an inalienable and necessary process of the development to the socialism in all countries on the way of the world socialism and finally world communism. The old type „socialism in a single country“ as the only one removes itself by a new type of a socialist country – the socialist country as a part of a socialist world and later on - after another long period – then(!) socialist countries are not any longer necessary and shall not continue to exists.
We Marxist-Leninists do not defend for all eternity the former type of „socialism in a single country“. To be more precise we are for dying of the old type of „socialism in a single country“ -- not that way according to the restoration of the capitalism, but according to the inalienable and necessary transition to the classless world community. Those who don't understand this peculiarity of the transformation of the „socialism in a single country“ in the course of the transition period from capitalism to communism, are not able and willing to understand the dialectics of historical revolutionary world processes, are not willing or able to understand the multiplication table of Marxism-Leninism, are directly or indirectly slowing down the world process of communism by putting an end to the old type of „socialism in a single country“, are „Marxist-Leninists“ in words, but in reality restorators of revisionism, restorators of capitalism. They want that type of „socialism“ which is restorable to capitalism, they don`t want the guaranteed socialism – world socialism. They want such type of „world socialism“ which guarentees all the „socialist“ countries to be restorable to capitalism, they want „socialism“ only for the purpose for the survival of world capitalism.
Neither the skip ( `left ` radicalism) of „socialism in a single country“ nor the trot after „the socialism in a single country“ (right opportunism), nor to go nowhere except back to the „socialism in a single country“ ( - so to speak as the final stage of socialism and not as the transition step to communism) – all this can never be our world revolutionary Marxist – Leninist line. All Marxist – Leninists will certainly agree with this, because we Marxist-Leninists always direct our ideological struggle at two fronts:
Against those radical lower middle-class elements, who - (in a Trotzkyite manner - get into panic about the forthcoming end of the petty-bourgeois world) - skip the necessary steps to the world revolution and who hurry on in advance without leading the world proletariat (= adventurism); and against those (– if they`d messed it) – who are servilely enough to get any concession from the world imperialists ( = capitulationism);
As well as against that revisionist trotting tail which tries in every conceivable way to impede, to brake and to hold back the world revolution. These elements renounce the international class struggle of the world proletariat, they betray the proletarian world revolution and they descend to the level of petty-bourgeois liberalism.
Both the enemies of the world revolution have to be combatted at the same time, because they work hand in hand. While the Righties operate quite openly with their opportunism against the world revolution , the „Lefties“ mask opportunism with „worldrevolutionary“ phrases on the other hand. Playing with the world revolution and finall capitulation towards the world revolution indeed as essence, „left" phrases and „world revolutionary "-adventurous behavior as a form, which hides the capitulatory content and is to adverse publicity – that`s all about the nature of the Trotzkyite betrayal of the world revolution.
If we do not unmask all the „worldrevolutionary“ phrases of the Neo - Trotzkyites, the consequence will be that we would make it easier for the right opportunists to discredit the world revolution by lumping us together with the „left“ opportunists - just to make it easier to condemn us Marxist – Leninists as „sectarians“. The revisionists take criticism on „left“ exaggerations, distortions and faults in the fight for the world revolution for a cause to oppose to the struggle of the world revolution very fundamentally and in principle. The revisionists deny world revolution in the name of „world revolution“. The revisionists try to prove „scientifically“ the impossibility of the world revolution`s inevitable victory. So, if we want to thwart the right opportunists` plan we have to overcome the faults of the „left“ opportunists. This is the correct way we have to lead our Marxist-Leninist struggle against the deviations in the question of the world revolution.But does this suffice? This of course doesn't suffice.
Nevertheless the world revolutionary processes are actually active, without recognizing it immediately in clearest way. It isn't possible for the Comintern / ML to take in the world revolutionary processes immediately which are now going on and it is therefore even less possible to influence these world processes as they ought to be influenced practically in time. We need time to reflected these world revolutionary processes by our consciousness. Consciousness does not come up to reality and facts to the same time. Consciousness needs time to reflect the ongoing objective international processes. And because we are conscious abou these circumstances we have to revolutionize our Marxist-Leninist consciousness about the world revolution with the help of the dialectical and historical materialism, we have to overcome our narrow outlook, we have to correct our old-fashioned misconceptions on the world revolution, we have to be courageous enough to throw them over board. We have to be on our guard against idealizationing the world revolution by assuming what really happens and what is utterly obvious. The discovery of the science of the socialist world revolution is still in its infancy. We must earnestly do our internationalist scientific work.
In which direction do we have to go?
Before we can do something correctly at all, we must learn to avoid what went wrong. We have to study the developmental history of the socialism in a single country more thoroughly and more profoundly. The studies of Enver Hoxha on the modern revisionism are very helpful to do this. The key for the right understanding of our future way to the world socialism consists of the logical and historical knowledge of the socialism, how it had developed or to speak more exactly: how socialism moved backwards towards the restoration of the capitalism. We must primarily give an answer to the question what was the reason why the step from the socialism in a single country was not followed by the step towards the world socialism? Why did the process of the world revolution go downward? What held it back? Which chain-link had been missing? What has to be done? In which direction do we have to go, if we want to improve the acceleration of the world revolutionary process in the future? This scientific work cannot be done in a spare time. Victory and defeat depend on the correct answers which we have to find out. What has happened to us with the socialism in a single country is not to be repeated in regard of the world socialism. The theoretical loopholes must be closed before you step forward practically. Certainly this does not mean to stop the activities of supporting the internationalist, daily class struggle because we can only become experienced in the practical fight and we improve our fight by the generalization of our experiences. The Marxist - Leninist movement is the embodiment of the proletarian world movement which is merged together with the scientific world socialism.
We must do what is possible under today's conditions ( without drifting into pragmatic and spontaneous working methods!). We must analyse our available possibilities scientificallywith the method of the dialectical and historical materialism. We have to work out a strategy and tactics on the basis of the results of our analysis. Then we have to pick up that chain-link with which we can support the processes of the whole chain of the world revolution:
We must look for new support, new means, new levers, new ways for a new base for the reconquest of the socialism, find and create as long until we cannot yet rebuild the socialism in a single country. Which ones are these? Are there still the proletarians of all countries? Yes, they are still there and they grow rapidly by the globalization of the capital quantitatively and also qualitatively – since the Comintern / ML began to carry out the worldrevolutionary consciousness of the world proletarian movemen. And what do we have else? We have the forces of the working masses unleashed by the globalization as a reserve of the world revolution, a globalized reserve-army of the unemployed, a globalized army of the poor peasants, etc. - great potential for united front with the world proletariat!
The world proletariat as the upcoming globalized class now goes through one studying process after the other. In the end the world proletariat shall have done everythingnecessary to oppose the international front of the capital as an organized class-front on its own part. Unavoidably the globalized front of the capital creates the globalized labour front – and this is evident for us Marxist – Leninists, especially the Marxist – Leninist parties on all continents because we have to support the formation process of the globalized labour front to ease the outbreak of the worldrevolutionary processes on all united proletarian continents.
The proletariat can only build this universal class-front if the proletariat looks over the own national soup-plate. The Marxist-Leninist parties of the countries ought to be the first who do everything to overcome their national level-crossing barriers, but even the Marxist-Leninist parties in the neighbor countries did not yet notice that proletarian internationalism is more than exchanging experiences to „improve“ the class-struggle in the own country. Helping each other is precondition of helping the world party of the world proletariat – otherwise proletarian internationalism would be nothing else as a dead end, it would be anything else but not a centralized organizationing of the international class struggle of ONE class front to resist the global offensive of the world capital.This does not mean that brotherly naborship of the proletarians, of the Marxist-Leninists would be unnecessary. In the contrary this brotherly relationship to the proletariat of the other countries shall rize on a higher level by the centralized world party! Obviously it seems to be too difficult for the Marxist-Leninist parties to understand that a centralized world party will be much more effective even for the relationship among each other.
If it was formerly possible for the capitalist-revisionist encirclement to smash the dictatorship of the proletariat of a single country, this will be not at all a so successful tactic on the world scale. If the world proletariat takes a firm and united stand as an international class-front, it will not be so easy to uphold the old bourgeois-revisionist encirclement in times of the single socialist country. In future the class front of the world proletariat shall weaken the nationalk fronts of the bourgeois-revisionist countries, so that the possibility of the victory of the socialist revolution in a single country is higher in all probability. Today the opening of the centralized international class-front of the world proletariat is the key to open the socialist revolution in all countries. This is the direction we have to go. The formation of the centralized global internationalist classfront of one international class – that is the way to understand at present the slogan: „Proletarians of all countries - unite!“
In the short days of the Octoberrevolution it was advantegeous for Lenin to grab his chance because there was a particular world situation amongst the capitalist countries – it was a moment of weakness because the imperialists were at daggers drawn with each other. The Albanian Communists could also use the right moment to get rid of the German occupiers so that the weak power of the bourgeoisie in the own country could be removed relatively easy. These were more or less extraor4dinary and exceptional moments of history under conditions which could not necessarilybe applied and multiplied in all the other countries just like that. Never forget that the imperialists learnt from their faults and weaknesses in their struggle against the socialist revolution.They took their preventive measures and numerous precautions. Today the world imperialists concentrate their counter-revolutionary forces almost uniformly on revolutionary flash points – in first line and under the command of the rich bourgeois metropolies but also under inclusion of a large number of UNO-member states. This is already practiced since a considerable time because asingle capitalist state would have too much difficulties in the solo run and without the alliance with all united capitalist states. However the character of revolutionary flash points of anti-imperialism shall change from national liberation struggles of the passed towards international liberation struggles of the future caused by the globalization of the counter-revolution. The only way out is the international concentration of the whole world wide revolutionary forces. We have to oppose a revolutionary strategy and tactics of the world proletariat to the counter-revolutionary strategy and tactics of the world imperialists. We have not only to break through the counterrevolutionary encirclement but we have to combinate it with the worldrevolutionary encirclement. Time is ripe to prepare the world proletarian revolutionary encirclement to beat the world imperialists at their own game. The first encirclement was a bourgeois one, the second encirclement was a bourgeois-revisionist one, the third and last encirclement must be a world proletarian one. The question of the removal of the world imperialist chain is as well a question of breaking through at the weakest link and tearing it asunder as also a question of its combination with global strangling and chrushing by the worldwide encirclement of the world proletarian`s class front. Under globalized conditions the one is not possible without the other. Undermining the parasite bourgeois states from inside and oppressive international encirclement around the world imperialist order from outside – an interactive struggle of the proletariat of a single country ( as a division of the world proletarian army) with the overall global struggle of the centrally organized world proletarian army. The leadership of the world proletariat is important for this revolutionary interaction. Every anti-imperialist resistance ends inevitably with a defeat, if this condition of the leadership of the world proletariat is missing.
Today It is more likely to break the imperialist chain if the world proletarian forms its own chain. By this the proletariat of a single country will not be isolated by the task`s solution of breaking out of the imperialist chain. The world proletarian chain clings to the world imperialist chain so that the imperialist chain does not only lose one single chain-link but falls into ruins as a whole. By this it is besides also more difficult for the imperialists to reintegrate the lost chain-link by the restoration of capitalism. This means that we have to turn around the encirclement tactics of the world imperialists by 180 degress to beat them at their same game as we already mentioned. The reconquest of socialism is based on this internationalist idea. This idea is also based on a materialist fundament. Once world imperialism needed the national framework for its development. In the course of the world imperialist development it was going to overcome national borders and globalized. Socialism needed also a national framework to develop. The theory of the „socialism in a single country“ was worked out and successfully transformed into practice. Socialism grows out of the lap of the capitalist society. It is logically to assume that globalized capitalism creates globalized socialism. World capitalism gives birth to world socialism, the socialist world community. This course of renewed socialism is an objective law of mankind`s development independantly from the willing and subjective wishes of the people. We as communists have to look through the future development of the world society by our internationalist eyes. We have to concentrate or whole energy on the task to speed up the objectively ongoing world socialist processes. We have consciously to interfere the revolutionary processes of the proletarians` globalization. So it was not by chance when the Comintern / ML spent its whole attention towards the world proletariat as an international class but it was a neccessity which is based on Marxist-Leninist knowledge of the actually changing world situation of the proletariat:
The globalized capital has forged the proletarians of all countries to the globalized of the labour slavery. The world proletariat can only get rid of the globalized labour slavery by organizing its centralized globalized power. The chains of labour slavery can only completely burst on an international stage. The struggle against labour slavery has to be organized as one international struggle organized by a central leadership of the proletarians of all countries.
World proletarians -- shatter your globalized chain of the labour slavery!
This is the watchword of today's communism!
This is the watchword of the proletarians of all countries -- on the 5th anniversary of the Comintern/ML !
The multinational companies, the international industry-and financial capital counts on the mobilization of the internationalized productive forces, on international labour sharing. This process abolishes the old gravedigger on a national stage. This world capitalist process unites the gravediggers of all countries to one and only international gravedigger. The international capital creates the international gravedigger. In future there will be not all the old gravediggers, who dig the graves of capitalism in this or that single country, but a universal gravedigger – the world proletariat - who digs the grave of the whole world capitalism. It will be the world proletariat who stears its own initiative and control over strikes for bringing world production to a stillstand. What is a strike in a local factory or even a general strike in a single country compared with an overall worldwide strike in a multi-national concern or with a world`s general strike ?! It is not by chance that at first the Comintern / ML put this question of all Marxist – Leninists. By centralized actions the world proletariat interferes the unhindered international transactions of the imperialists deeply and sensitively. If the proletarians succeed to interrupt world production then this will also harm the production in most of the single capitalist countries because they depend on world production to a large amount. So the world imperialists shall have difficulties to move or remove the production back and forth and to and fro the single countries. So the international strike shall develop to its highest form as anpowerful instrument of the world` proletarian` s overall revolutionary strategy and tactics. To thwart the plans of the world imperialists the world proletariat works out its own plans of action. The counter-revolutionary army of the world imperialists cannot be simultaneously at any place of the globe but the revolutionary army of the world proletariat can do. International capital can only be protected internationally. If the proletariat is confined to the class-struggle in its own country the situation of the world proletariat shall be hopeless, because there is hardly a lasting effect on the activities against world capitalism from a restricted national area. That `s the reason why the proletarians of all countries have to care commonly about the fact that the life of capitalism will be in danger everywhere on earth, that world capitalists shall come across the whole proletarian world army instead of isolated and not coordinated proletarian divisions in this or that country.
To make a maximum of profits the globalization is a capital-immanent economic pressure of pulling down national barriers. If the proletarians of a single country persist in a strategy and tactics which is restricted in a class-struggle with national barriers then the struggle against globalized profit-making is built on sand. The coordination of labour policy within the multinational companies, the removal of man-power from one country to another has to be interrupted by the invalidation of the national labour competition. To give an example: If the port capitalists of Europe want to replace the port workers by unskilled workes to depress the wages then the European port workers stand up like one man. As soon as the passive labour reserve-army starts to move, as soon as the world proletariat organizes world wide resistance, as soon as it supports it own economic and political interests, as soon as the proletarians of single countries unite into continental or intercontinental strikes, continental or intercontinental general strikes, international demonstrations and rallies, mass-actions and international insurrections and international civil wars, a civil world war - then the world capitalists shall really get difficulties – there can not any doubt about it ! We`ll be damed if the world proletariat shall not learn, experience and master new international forms of socialist class-struggle even the highest armed one`s!
The world proletariat is forced to organize as one conscious (political) international class, is forced to organize its economic fight internationally. It is forced to carry through its economic interests with international political means, too - hence to carry through its political interests internationally. It will be then forced to have to lead the political international fight with extremest means -- the armed international class warfare against the world imperialist counter-revolution. It will particularly be forced militarily, to oppose the imperialist world army with its own proletarian world army and lead it in the last, decisive world battle between capital and labour. This is the march of the world proletariat towards the armed socialist world revolution. This way is generally predetermined historically as well as logically though we cannot forsee the details and special formations and arrangement. However, we know perfectly well that that this world revolutionary way will be the remaining alternative to achieve the liberation of all the suppressed and exploited classes here on earth. It `s time for us Marxist-Leninists to convince the world proletariat – and the world proletariat will really see for itself – that the way of the Comintern / ML is the revolutionary way. The fight of the world proletariat is hundredfold more successful then the struggle of the proletariat isolated in its own country. You can smash the world proletarian`s hand by breaking one continental finger after another, but nothing can resist the proletarian fist of all continents. That is what the Comintern / ML teaches to the proletarians of all continents. This is the only way how the world proletariat can fulfill its mission: to guarantee socialism in every country on the base of a world system of socialism. No proletariat – except the world proletariat – can really guarantee socialism in every country. Only the world proletariat as an independently acting class can guarantee the future of communism. In this century of globalization it will be harder to break the imperialist chain at the weakest link than in the passed century ( provided equal means, forms, methods etc of the struggle for socialism in the passed century). The imperialist chain in times of Lenin and Stalin and even in times of Enver Hoxha cannot be compared on a same level with the conditions of the today`s imperialist chain. Today the conditions to break through the imperialist chain at the weakest link have changed a lot ( the former break through - only by a single country who relies on its own forces). We don't want to say that it has got quite impossible in our time of globalization to defeat the power of the bourgeoisie in the national frame and build up an old type of „socialism in a single country.“
But we want to say in any case that the firm action of the world proletariat as one class could pave the way for breaking through the imperialist chain at the weakest link enormously because acting as an international class the possibilities to prevent the world imperialism to intercede on national bourgeoisie`s behalf in any given country of the world. The intervention of the world proletariat is the key for breaking through the imperialist world chain at its weakest link. The socialist revolution within the weakest link in particular but in all the other countries in general have to be led by the world proletariat in general and by the proletariat of a single country in particular. The reconquest of the future socialism is in first line a matter of the world proletariat, connected with the condition of its leadership. This is why the Comintern / ML concentrates essentially its energy on the formation of the world revolutionary new consciousness of the proletariat, does the Comintern / ML unconditionally support every class-struggle beyond the own national borders, does it encourage every attempt to globalize the class struggle of the involved countries, to escalate the unrest into a revolution, to enlarge local struggles on an international stage, to convince the proletariat that the international liberation has something to do with helping each other. What is needed in this century is an Octoberrevolution of the world proletariat and the Comintern / ML is the organization who drew this general line in the past 5 years.
To be firmly convinced about the hegemony of the proletariat this means today: to be convinced that the hegemony has an international character, that it is the hegemony of the world proletariat, that means to direct our struggle in first line and directly against the world imperialists with the united front of the proletarians of all countries.
The upcoming class struggle which decides on capitalism and socialism, is the direct class struggle of the world proletariat against the world bourgeoisie. This means that the class struggles in the single countries, the class struggle in the „own“ country shall get a new quality, a new mission, a new pushing direction, namely the fight against the „own“ bourgeoisie at that point where it is particularly and sensetively depending of the world bourgeoisie and vice versa. The decisive supplies from outside have to be cut. By this intervention the world bourgeoisie gets weakened in their centers and finally the world bourgeoisie will be brought about her downfall :
