Exactly 100 years ago, on October 20, 1922, #Trotsky delivered one of his great political speeches before the membership of the Moscow organization of the Russian Communist Party. It was an extraordinary analysis of the challenges confronting the new Communist International. 1/
Trotsky examined the contradictory development of the world socialist revolution, which had achieved its first great victory in backward Russia rather than in the advanced centers of world imperialism. 2/ #socialism
He noted a basic difference in the revolutionary process in Russia, compared to that in an advanced country such as the United States. In the former, the great problem was not the seizure of power, but in holding it in the aftermath of the overthrow of the capitalist state. 3/

1. Perché #Putin cita #Stalin in chiave positiva, mentre attacca #Lenin, nel suo discorso alla nazione di riconoscimento del #Donbass (dicendo addirittura "L'#Ucraina dovrebbe chiamarsi 'repubblica di Lenin'"?).
2. L'era #Putin ha significato per la #Russia una profonda trasformazione culturale e la rifondazione dello Stato dopo il decennio di disgregazione e crisi seguito al crollo dell'#URSS. Uno dei pilastri è stata anche la politica memoriale e la didattica della Storia.
3. #Putin ha ripreso il sentimento nazionalista da sempre presente nel popolo russo e che lo stesso #PCUS, fin da #Stalin, ha utilizzato nel corso del tempo per costruire consenso verso il regime sovietico - tranne, appunto, sotto #Lenin.

The lessons of the war of annihilation against the Soviet Union are of contemporary relevance. The same contradictions of world capitalism threaten to plunge the world into the inferno of a third world war. #22июня #мыпомним

The main concern of this lecture is not the specific conflicts and events that triggered World War II, but rather the war’s more general causes.

"Here we encounter a terrible problem: For all that has been said and written about the #Holocaust, it remains a strangely obscure event"

15 octobre 1942 — ECHEC A LA RELEVE IMPERIALISTE !

"70 années de parlementarisme ont pu cacher en partie aux ouvriers et paysans de France la nature rapace et sans scrupules de leur impérialisme ; les événements actuels dévoilent complètement son rôle vis-à-vis de la "nation".
"Le grand Capital, qui exploitera la France aussi longtemps que les ouvriers et les paysans ne se seront pas emparés des moyens de production, considère la "nation" comme un simple moyen : instrument de pillage mondial quand il est assez fort pour se mesurer directement avec...

I've just found in the Net some pictures of a place I've heard about, but actually never seen: the WW1 POW camp near #Nymbruk, Bohemia. I did not even know its name. This is a family story. A thread /1
In 1914 the Austro-Hungarian empire started WW1, Italy was still a neutral country. The Italian/Venetian speaking people from #Trento province (then Tyrol), where draft and sent to fight zarist Russia. This picture is the 1st train leaving Trento to the front line /2
possibly my great grandfather, then austro-hungarian subject was in that train, who knows? /3

Muitas semelhanças existem entre os movimentos #comunistas do passado e presente.
Comecemos com #Trotsky:
Assim como #universitários de hj, ele entrou na #política ainda na #Universidade. Image
Trotsky se envolveu com ativistas campesinos, os Narodnik.
E como todo esquerdomacho, eventualmente se transformou em um marxista apĂłs conhecer a sua futura esposa, uma ativista marxista muito desejada em seu meio. Image
Assim como nossos ativistas universitários, Trotsky Ñ terminou a graduação (em matemática) e acabou se metendo com sindicatos, tendo como função recrutar mais comunista...nas universidades.
Trotsky eventualmente se formou. Claro que não em matemática,
formou em filosofia, claro. Image

#Trotsky, 1904: “In the lower strata of the people, in the very depths of the masses, a work was going on, a movement of molecules, imperceptible yet irresistible, incessant, a work of accumulating indignation, bitterness, revolutionary energy...
“The atmosphere our streets are breathing now is no longer an atmosphere of blank despair, it is an atmosphere of concentrated indignation which seeks means and ways of revolutionary action...
“A tremendous amount of revolutionary energy has accumulated. It should not vanish with no avail, it should not be dissipated in scattered engagements & clashes, with no coherence and no definite plan...

Thread : Lorsque je vous lis @olbesancenot, j’ai honte pour vous et mal pour la #Gauche que vous prétendez représenter en dépit de toute honnêteté intellectuelle.
#KarlMarx disait : « la #religion est l’opium du peuple ». Vous en faites carrément une race. ⤵️
2-#Trotsky: « nous les révolutionnaires, nous n’en avons pas fini avec les problèmes de la religion car nos tâches consistent à émanciper non seulement nous-mêmes, mais aussi les masses de l’influence de la #religion». Vous n’êtes donc qu’un contre révolutionnaire @olbesancenot⤵️
3-Marx, Trotsky et #Charb qui autrefois Ă©prouvait de la sympathie pour vous doivent se retourner dans leurs tombes.
De quel genre de #Gauche seriez-vous le représentant @olbesancenot si vous en trahissez les grands hommes? ⤵️

Je continue les explications sur Trotsky puisqu’on m’a demandé conseils.

Après son autobiographie «Ma vie» que j’ai préconisé pour connaître l’homme, j’encourage à la lecture de « La Révolution permanente » pour sa théorie.

Ce livre écrit entre 1928 et 1931 constitue le cœur de la doctrine de Trotsky, de celle qui va l’opposer à Staline (et à ceux qu’il appelle les « épigones »), le voir exclu du parti, exilé puis assassiné.
La formulation de la « révolution permanente », pensée à partir de la révolution de 1905 et surtout celle de 1917, s’inscrit dans la lutte de Trotsky contre les Mencheviks, partisans d’une révolution ayant pour finalité d’instaurer la démocratie.

Il s’agit de l’autobiographie célèbre du père de le Révolution russe (avec Lénine) depuis son Ukraine natale au sein d’une famille juive jusqu’à son exil en Amérique du Sud et son meurtre sur ordre de Staline. Une vie de révolutionnaire sans concession avec son lot
(2/8)
de sacrifices, de déportations, de morts, d’exécutions, de victoires et de défaites. Une vie marquée par le fer rouge de « la révolution permanente » et du don de soi à la cause, qui permettra au lecteur de bien saisir la place de Trotsky dans l’histoire du socialisme
