IN 2017




December 31, 2017

Dear Comrades,

In the past 17 years, the Comintern (SH) has finally succeeded to enforce the general recognition of the doctrines of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism. Especially, we have successfully combated the neo-revisionist view of the so called "4-1/2 Classics" . What we have seen in the year 2017 this was that some organizations around the world have adopted the 5 Classics as a label to hide their neo-revisionist ideology. These organizations refused to practice the necessary self-criticism and they further keep to their neo-revisionist tradition.

In short, it has become fashionable to misuse the Comintern (SH) banner of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism just for the purpose as a poster child for their neo-revisionist ideology.

In 2017, we effectively thwarted these maneuvers of confusion. And in 2018 we have to remain vigilant. Our banner of the 5 classics is indivisible and belongs to only one party, namely the Comintern (SH). For this, we must continue to fight hard and uncompromisingly in the future. The more our Stalinist-Hoxhaist world movement spreads, the more it is inevitably threatened by foreign influences. Therefore we must not let up in the fight for the purity of the teachings of the 5 Classics.

The neo-revisionist organizations adorn themselves with borrowed plumes and commit fraudulent labeling in continuation of selling their old neo-revisionist junk, which they disguise behind our banner of the "5 Classics". These people want to compete with us in a petty-bourgeois way. The Stalinism-Hoxhaism teaches that there is only one world proletariat and therefore there can be only one communist party of the world proletariat ... and not two, three, four or even 100 parties fighting each other and splitting and weakening the communist world movement - and this namely to the contentment of the world bourgeoisie. The world proletariat needs revolutionary unity and not unity with the opportunists. Opportunist have no place under the banner of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism ! And we do not allow that the centrists reconcile the proletarian ideology with the bourgeois ideology for the purpose to better adapt it to the bourgeois ideology. These centrists are now trying to operate their opportunist "united front policy" under the banner of the 5 classics. And the centrists hate us secretly, because we rebuffed them. Centrists are our enemies. And that's why they can never become our friends. What are the centrists planning as their next step against us Stalinists-Hoxhaists?

The centrists play the role as "true defenders" of the 5 Classics. From this position they start their attack on Stalinism-Hoxhaism, which they want to recognize in no case. In the contrary. They portray Stalinism-Hoxhaism as a special, ideological current "deviation" from the doctrine of the five Classics. The centrists do not tell us directly, but we know what they are trying to tell us: "Either you allow the opportunists to join under the banner of the 5 Classics, or we'll isolate you Stalinist-Hoxhaists as 'incorrigible sectarians' and we will take over your banner of the 5 Classics against yourselves". So with this , the centrists try to do nothing others than the business of the open neo-revisionists. Centrists are lackeys of the neo-revisionists who open them the doors for liquidating us from inside.

First, attempts have been made to drive a wedge between Marxism-Leninism and Stalinism-Hoxhaism. And after this attempt failed, one tries to drive a new wedge, namely between the teachings of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism and Stalinism-Hoxhaism. So they do not openly attack Stalinism-Hoxhaism in the moment, but hide their attacks against Stalinism-Hoxhaism behind the protective banner of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism. Their goal is to beat us with our own weapons. That is what these lackeys of the bourgeoisie in truth intend in spite of all their oaths of loyalty to the Comintern (SH). The louder these people, however, swear allegiance to the Comintern (SH), the more they betray the Comintern (SH)! Of course we will not fall for their oath of loyalty. We will publicly unmask their betrayal and we send them packing.

The opportunism towards the Comintern (SH) is reflected in the organizational question, among other things, namely that one does not dare to doubt the necessity of a Communist International in general, on a global scale, but simultaneously to deny and sabotage the necessity of founding a Section of the Comintern (SH ) in "one's own" country. The motto of the opportunists is: "May the Comintern (SH) spread to the whole world, but not her Section in 'my own' country."

Earlier or later in history, the centrists have always outed themselves as allies of our enemies. And the centrists of today will suffer the same fate. First, they try to attack Stalinism-Hoxhaism hiddenly. And if this attempt fails they go over to attack Stalinism-Hoxhaism openly. And so it will inevitably come to the next step of betrayal, which the Comintern (SH) predicted already 5 years ago, namely:

"The dialectics of history is such that the theoretical victory of Stalinism-Hoxhaism will increasingly force our opponents to disguise themselves as 'Stalinist - Hoxhaists' !"

Comintern (SH) 06 - 03 - 2012

The rejection of Stalinism-Hoxhaism is not a mere dispute over terms. In fact, the enemies justify their rejection of Stalinism-Hoxhaism by means of their bourgeois argument about the "impossibility" of the further development of Marxism-Leninism. This dogmatic standpoint is not new. It was already used against Leninism which was once condemned as a "deviation" from Marxism. And the people who once condemned Leninism, are today the same people who condemn Stalinism-Hoxhaism. These skeptics cling to their old world view because they are afraid of any innovation. These backseat drivers will never be the ones who lead us towards revolution. Before the revolution they lag behind the development of the revolutionary ideology and then behind the development of the revolution itself. They believe to be always right, no matter whether foresight and hindsight.

There are two different opinions about drawing a demarcation line against neo-revisionism. The one opinion is this: Supporting every fight against neo-revisionism, while ignoring the fact that only the Stalinist-Hoxhaist fight against neo-revisionism is the correct one. Turning away from neo-revisionism is thus not synonymous with turning to Stalinism-Hoxhaism. The other opinion is that of fighting against neo-revisionism exclusively on the basis of the most advanced development of the proletarian ideology, namely on the basis of Stalinism-Hoxhaism. Every other struggle against neo-revisionism is reactionary and will be defeated by us Stalinist-Hoxhaists.

There, where dogmatic speculation ceases, Stalinism-Hoxhaism begins as the highest stage of socialist science, by applying the method of dialectical materialism to correctly reflect the actual conditions of life of world society under the present conditions of globalization. The doctrines of Stalinism-Hoxhaism are not a dogma, not an ideal, according to which reality must comply with or subordinate. In the contrary. The teachings of Stalinism-Hoxhaism are the scientific teachings of the truly proletarian world movement which is going on now. It is the decaying global exploiting system itself that creates the material conditions for the victory of the world proletarian revolution. The world-historical decay process of world imperialism determines the world-historical process of development of world socialism. Thus, the socialist world revolution is not the product or result of Stalinism-Hoxhaism, but on the contrary, Stalinism-Hoxhaism is only the scientific reflection of the actual class contradiction, mainly between the world bourgeoisie and the world proletariat, which is not be resolved otherwise than through the armed world socialist revolution.

Those who deny Stalinism-Hoxhaism deny the most further advanced changes in today's globalized world, which can not be scientifically reflected without the most further advanced proletarian ideology - Stalinism-Hoxhaism. Anyone who understands the teachings of Stalinism-Hoxhaism as a dogma and ignores their application to changing reality, will not be able to overthrow world imperialism in the first place nor actually build world socialism.

We have to fight under the conditions with which we are faced and not according to our wishes or dogmatic ideas. And we can only overcome our wishful thinking and determine the really existing conditions under which we must fight - only with the help of Stalinism-Hoxhaism. All the 5 Classics were at that time faced with solving this problem by their own - so we, too, today. And it is totally clear for us that we cannot solve this problem without further developing the proletarian ideology for this purpose.

The dogmatists regard Stalinism-Hoxhaism as a pure fiction of phrasemongers and not as a scientific further development of Marxism-Leninism. The dogmatists condemn any further development of Marxism-Leninism as an alleged "betrayal" of Marxism-Leninism. Everything beyond of Marxism-Leninism is "anti-Marxism-Leninism" - according to their dogmatic opinion.

The dogmatists do not understand Stalinism-Hoxhaism as a guide to the revolutionary transformations of the real conditions in the world today. A guide to action for changing present-day conditions can not simply be plagiarized from any single book of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism. Every new situation needs a new guidance of action. And the new globalized world is doubtedlessly a new situation which we have to analyse scientifically before working out our strategy and tactics. The conditions in that time of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism are not the same as what they are today. For that reason, what was right then is not automatically furtherto valid today. Outdated guidelines can prove to be ineffective or even wrong. So one has to creatively apply the teachings of the 5 Classics in order to analyze the changed class relations in today's globalized world. And then, based on this analysis, we must draw the right conclusions and develop a suitable strategy and tactics. And Stalinism-Hoxhaism is nothing other than the today's creative application of Marxism-Leninism. Only those who undertake this arduous scientific-creative work, only those who have really completely freed themselves from the shackles of dogmatism, create the necessary conditions to transform the teachings of the 5 classics of Marxism-Leninism into an actual revolutionary instruction.

Dogmatic chatter "about" the world socialist revolution, "about" the teachings of the 5 Classics ", this is completely useless, does not lead to the creation of a guide to world revolutionary action. The guidance to action does not come from mere deduction of general tenets.

This requires the further development of scientific socialism, with which the concrete conditions of the present class society, taking account of their historical changes, are examined and revolutionized.

Our enemies misuse Stalinism-Hoxhaism as an abusive word. Before, they used Marxism-Leninism as a swear-word, namely in the same way. They have every time condemned any further development of the proletarian ideology and ridiculed it as charlatanry. They define communism as a fossil dogma, as a sort of religious confession, as worshipping the golden calf while they, themselves define the "free society" as a society "free of ideology", behind which they hide their bourgeois ideology of exploitation and oppression. Our enemies know very well that the communist ideology is only then dangerous if it is further developed. And that is the reason why they fear Stalinism-Hoxhaism, and why they call us "dogmatists".

For us communists, for the world proletariat, Stalinism-Hoxhaism is today's world revolutionary guidance for global liberation from world imperialist exploitation and oppression.


why do we emphasize especially the question of Stalinism-Hoxhaism in this Year-Plan ?

This is inevitable because our enemies try increasingly to bring Stalinism-Hoxhaism in discredit. They spread lies on it among the revolutionary world movement. And that is the reason why we must further develop and consolidate our ideology and increase our efforts to throw explanatory light on Stalinism-Hoxhaism.

To go ideologically to the forefront of the revolutionary movement in the past 17 years - this is one thing. Permanently asserting this ideological position at the top also in future - this is a completely different matter. And this is what it's all about in 2018.

The Comintern (SH) does not only defend the international tradition of the communist world movement. In the past 17 years, the Comintern (SH) has further developed the ideology of Stalinism-Hoxhaism and must follow this way in 2018.

The 17-year existence of the Comintern (SH) is a victory over all those reactionary and opportunistic world powers who wanted to bury the Comintern of Lenin and Stalin forever. Their attempts historically failed and we promise, they will never succeed. Lenin predicted that the proletarian International has never died and will never die! The Comintern (SH) is a 17-year proof of the correctness of Lenin's prophecy. And we have to prove this also in the coming year.

For 2017, the central ideological tasks of the Comintern (SH) were concentrated especially upon the struggle against the traitors of the ideas of the October Revolution.

We followed the lessons of the 5 Classics on the October Revolution and exclude unity with the enemies of the of the Red October, with the opportunists, with centrist, revisionist and neo-revisionist lackeys, also with Trotskyites and Anarchists.

We have already reported on the implementation of this task. In ideological party building, we must necessarily analyze the state of development of the ideological consciousness of the working class in the individual countries in particular, and of the entire world proletariat in general, and align ourselves with this in our planning. For whom do we develop our revolutionary world ideas? Not for ourselves, but for the working class. For this reason, the ideological construction of the party can not divided from the necessity of improving the revolutionary class consciousness, firstly that of the most progressive proletarians and secondly that of the entire working class. Above all, we are obliged to increase the ideological level of the industrial proletariat on which we will focus in the 2018 Annual Plan.

The attitude of the working class on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution in 2017 was the most important yardstick for correctly assessing the ideological development of the world proletariat. We are well aware that, despite our best efforts, we have exerted only a tiny influence on making the world proletariat aware of the current significance of the October Revolution. However, we don't ever have to play small our influence which is steadily growing. We have achieved outstanding achievements to underline the need for world socialist revolution with the lessons of the October Revolution. Not only did we make material available to the working class on a large scale, but we also set up programmatic theses in which we scientifically derive the goals of the world socialist revolution from the teachings of the October Revolution - applied to the conditions of today's world society.

However, we were also able to make specific observations and conclusions on the ground in the revolutionary action, in particular by participating in the demonstration in Leningrad, the birthplace of the October Revolution. The Russian working class has led the October Revolution to victory, has created the best conditions for the construction of socialism, has the greatest experience in establishing and defending the dictatorship of the proletariat, and has the highest level of ideological development in the world. Of all this at the demonstration was not much felt. The celebrations for the October Revolution were sobering for the Comintern (SH), but also extremely instructive for the better understanding of the actual ideological level of the Russian proletariat in the current moment.

1. Leningrad has shown us at what advanced stage the October Revolution was assimilated by the bourgeois conception of history in Russia and adapted to the purposes of Russian imperialism.

2. Leningrad has shown us what influence revisionism has on the consciousness of the Russian working class, namely a predominant influence. About the once so great level of consciousness of proletarian internationalism, which had been created with the October Revolution, nothing could be seen in Leningrad on 7. 11. 2017. The influence of Russian great-power chauvinism has further paralyzed the Russian working class - including its former revolutionary spirit. For nearly 70 years Russian revisionism has demoralized the Russian working class and kept the socialist revolution out of the reach of the proletariat . This reformist transformation of consciousness - far away from the internationalist nature of the October Revolution, as formulated by Stalin in 1927 - was carried through with the help of the revisionists. To restore socialism by reformism is nothing other than the re-establishment of Russian social imperialism -a fig leaf of the imperialist Putin empire, which seeks world domination. With the restoration of Russian social imperialism, the Russian revisionists want to give imperialist Russia a "socialist" face. Those of all people who betrayed the October Revolution are the ones who had the greatest influence on the celebrations in Leningrad.

3. In Leningrad, fascist and socio-fascist ideology as twin ideologies (open and covert form of defense of the rule of Russian imperialism) were visible at the celebrations of the October Revolution. In 2017, the Comintern (SH) was the only party that had defended the October Revolution against all traitors, not just around the world, but especially on the streets of Leningrad.

The Comintern (SH) has demonstrated in Lenigrad that it was the only proletarian force that propagated the October Revolution as a model and guideline for today's violent overthrow of Russian imperialism. The Comintern (SH) was the first worldwide organization to uphold Comrade Enver Hoxha's poster at a Russian demonstration. All this proves the important role that the founding of the Russian revolution has not only for Russia, but for the whole world. It is precisely in the ranks of our friends in Russia that the foundation of the Russian Section ("at the present time") was rated as allegedly nothing but "political suicide." Also in 2018 we will prove the opposite. In view of the international influence that the Russian revisionists still have today, as shown in the numerous participation of revisionist organizations from around the world in the demonstration in Leningrad, one should not in spite all that, overestimate the influence of the revisionists upon the consciousness of the Russian working class. The Russian workers have had plenty of opportunity in recent decades to convince themselves thoroughly of the betrayals of the revisionists on the basis of their own experiences. They will learn to differ between reform and revolution. With the founding of our Russian Section, we will succeed all the better in convincing the Russian working class of the betrayal of the revisionists of the revolutionary cause of the proletariat, of convincing them especially of the necessity of supporting the world socialist revolution.

It is not only the goal of the bourgeois ideologues in Russia to present the betrayal of the revisionists as "betrayal of the communists", but this is also the purpose of the ideology of the whole system of exploitation and oppression of the world bourgeoisie: They say to the workers: "Look what happened to the country of the October Revolution today and free yourself from the illusion of a world socialist revolution that will end up just as much in capitalism as the October Revolution. "

But the spirit of the October Revolution can be wiped out by nothing and no one. A working class that has lost its power will always strive to reclaim it. This is according to the unshakable law of Stalinism-Hoxhaism.
