The passed year of 2018, which marked Karl Marx’s 200th birthday, was indeed significant. From the perspective of the world revolution, it had to be. After all, communism, at its heart, is a deeply metaphysical cult, a counter-religion, with its own “god” (the Party, but ultimately the devil), its own “gospel” (so-called class struggle, behind which hides an overall and total struggle against God) and its own “saints” (from Babeuf to Marx & Engels to Lenin & Stalin to Béla Kun to Rosa Luxemburg & Karl Liebknecht to Antonio Gramsci to the Franfurt Schoolers to Sukarno to Ho Chi Minh to Nehru to Nasser to Kim Il-Sung to Mao to Arafat to Fidel Castro to Allende to Pol Pot to Mandela to the more recent incarnations: Gerry Adams, Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn).
Indeed, communists have always paid the greatest attention to their “jubilees”, which they celebrate with quasi-religious fervour. The Second International, for instance, which was really the first Socialist International, was formed on July 14, 1889, the exact day of the centenary of the Storming of the Bastille, which had sparked off the French Revolution a century earlier. The Bolshevist Revolution in Russia, which toppled Alexander Kerensky’s Provisional Government in November 1917 (or October, respectively, by old-style Julian calender count) happened to anticipate Karl Marx’s one hundredth birthday by only six months. Also the infamous May riots in 1968 France occurred perfectly on time for Karl Marx’s 150th birthday, while at the same time in communist Czechoslovakia the Prague Spring operetta was launched as a dress rehearsal for the larger deception programme to be implemented by Gorbachev twenty years later. Also, Lenin’s hundredth birthday, April 22, 1970, was used by a Democratic Senator (and for a while, Governor) of Wisconsin named Gaylord Nelson to announce ever-since-celebrated Earth Day, which greatly illustrates the intimate connection between environmentalism and the Revolution (that by now is no secret any longer). Gorbachev’s proclamation of “Perestroika” happened in 1987, the 70th anniversary of the 1917 October Revolution, while the removal of the Iron Curtain (and “collapse of communism” in the Eastern European satellite states) “coincided”, quite cynically, with the bicentenary of the French Revolution (that was, in France, pompously, and certainly unashamedly, celebrated by then-French President, and devoted socialist, François Mitterand). Ever since Vladimir Putin succeeded Boris Yeltsin at the turn from 1999 to 2000, “post-communist” Russia has been again officially celebrating on every December 20th the foundation of the Bolshevists’ deadly secret police and instrument of Lenin’s Red Terror, the Cheka, which was the forerunner of the KGB (meanwhile renamed FSB). Also, Putin’s “Russia” has reintroduced the old Soviet anthem of 1944 as well as the annual military parades on Moscow’s Red Square, commemorating Stalin’s victory over Hitler in 1945 (from Moscow’s perspective, Germany’s unconditional surrender took place on May 9th, 1945). Even Barack Obama appears quite conscious of certain historical dates in the communist calendar: His second election campaign of 2012 was officially launched on May 5th, Karl Marx’s birthday, and was running on the prominent communist maxim, “Forward”. Not to mention the 9/11 terror attacks, which had been so obviously choreographed not by some Muslim fanatics, but ultimately by Moscow; September 11 being both the birthday of “Iron Felix” Dzerzhinsky, the head of the Cheka, and the death day of Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, under whose watch, in the late 1950s, the new Leninist longrange strategy was worked out.
In addition, one might take note of a seeming habit on the part of the communists to open new chapters in their revolutionary “journey” towards the end of any given decade (and thus at the beginning of a new decade). The French Revolution began in 1789. There was the Revolution of 1848 (which was also the year Marx and Engels published their Communist Manifesto). The Bolsheviks took over Russia in late 1917, while the monarchies in Germany and Austria fell in late 1918 and Béla Kun erected his diabolical, but short-lived, reign in Hungary in 1919. Mao came to power in China in 1949. The Castros in Cuba, in 1959. The German Social Democrats under Willy Brandt formed Germany’s first left-wing government after World War II in 1969, followed by the Austrian Socialists under Bruno Kreisky capturing the seats of power in their country in 1970. There was also a quite prominent full-blown communist revolution in Chile in 1970 under Salvador Allende, who was only overthrown by General Pinochet in 1973. What’s more, the years 1968/69 saw the climax of the sixties’ revolution, both in Europe and in America. In 1979, the (clearly Soviet-controlled) Mullah regime took power in Iran. 1989 was the year of the fake “collapse” of communism, which was in fact the official start of a 360° offensive against the West. 1999/2000 was the beginning of the neo-Stalinist regime under Putin in Russia. While Comrade Obama was inaugurated as the first communist President of the United States – recognised as such by hardly anyone at the time – in 2009 (sure enough, he and his revolutionary cohorts haven’t gone away at all since the election of Donald Trump, but have instead launched an even wilder attack on the American Republic through their across-the-board “Resistance”).
And so, 2018 being the bicentenary of the birth of the “prophet” of communism, one should expect major events (as well as culminating processes) to have taken place in the course of this passed year, and there were plenty. Here’s a selection (that does not necessarily follow a chronological order):
For the People’s Republic of China, 2018 was a year of great strife, strategic expansion and ideological “rejuvenation”. The ruthless erection of military bases in the international waters of the South China Sea represents an unprecedented breach not only of international diplomacy, but of international law, to begin with. Communist China bullies and threatens the whole of the East-Asian-Pacific region (all the way to Australia and New Zealand) and simply doesn’t care about Western protests any longer. Such behaviour, of course, signifies an actor who feels strong enough to openly challenge the (once-)leading world power of the United States. China makes no secret of its determination to make the 21st century the “Chinese century” (masking all the while the deeper dimension of communist world revolution, that includes also Russia as well as the whole of the “former” world communist bloc). The trade war with America just continues; so do the permanent, full-scale industrial espionage, organised sabotage as well as strategic infiltration. But, given their close and quite irreversible entanglement with this criminal regime, that has grown into a veritable monster (greatly facilitated 45 years ago by none other than Henry Kissinger), America and the West are no longer in the position to categorically confront China. Rather, whatever aggressive rhetoric comes out of the White House, they have to appease. In other words – and this is true of China and Russia – the free world increasingly stands with its back against the wall (without so much, even, as a truly Catholic Church in place that would warn against communism – instead, the Conciliar church, that is no longer Catholic, promotes it). Russia and China know all this, which is why their ever-growing belligerence has long surpassed that of the darkest days of the Cold War, that in fact has never ended, though Francis Fukuyama still seems to hold on even now to his erroneous pipe dream of an “End of History”. The PRC is home (if one call it that) to 1.4 billion people, i.e. almost one fifth of the entire world population and roughly four and half times the population of the United States (that, in turn, already has around 3.8 million ethnic Chinese, which is slightly more than 1% of the U.S. population). Such staggering population numbers – along with China soon to overtake the U.S. as the leading economy in the world and provided a necessary modernisation of China’s military, which has been underway for quite some time – suggest not only the serious possibility of China (along with Russia) defeating the United States on the battlefield, but even of exterminating the whole of the U.S. population and replacing it with Chinese! Sure enough, for all those in the West who have been celebrating a more “pragmatic”, “no longer really communist” China for the last three decades, the day of reckoning has come. China is as ideologically charged as ever, with President Xi Jingping having assumed the same powers as were once held by Chairman Mao. The most merciless religious persecution is back, an unexpected déjà-vu of Mao’s Cultural Revolution. This time, the communist state keeps an estimated one million Uyghurs in reeducation camps, while their mosques have now Chinese red flags planted on them. As for Christians, state authorities check out their apartments and force them to take down images of Christ or Christian saints and replace them with pictures of President Xi! With non-compromising underground Catholics having been thrown under the bus by Rome, a great tragedy is looming, that will most likely be kept from the eyes of the West. At the same time, China is in the process of implementing a completely dystopian system of social control (known as “social credit system”) by way of electronically keeping track of every citizen’s (or company’s) patterns of behaviour and consumption. There’s no doubt that this is what the communists have in store for all of us, if we remain indifferent and passive enough to let it happen. As a matter of course, Karl Marx’s 200th birthday was prominently celebrated by the Chinese regime.
But one shouldn’t forget about “Russia”, which has remained the same old murderous Soviet Union in everything but name. Russia (in fact, the whole of the “Commonwealth of Independent States”, which equates basically to the whole territory of the former USSR) is still the beacon of the world revolution – even though it has taken on the guise of Russian nationalism, even traditional Russian Christendom, which is but a pack of lies, sadly all too readily believed by conservatives in the West. The leadership is as communist as it can get and as threatening as the Soviet Union has ever been. The supposed “changes” introduced by Gorbachev and perpetuated by Yeltsin and Putin have been merely cosmetic. They are all still Soviets, with the same old Soviet hatred and despise of “decadent, imperialist America”. No genuine bourgeois state of affairs has ever been reestablished either in the “former” Soviet Union or in any of its “former” satellite states. It’s been the boldest and most consequential charade in all of human history. Like China, also Russia is working day and night to undermine the West wherever it can (and grab whatever territory it sees fit, knowing that all the West can do is throw up its arms in shock and helplessness and impose “sanctions”). At the same time, the Russian Federation has greatly modernised its military, which includes a whole array of actual super-weapons, even doomsday weapons, the likes of which the United States has suicidally decided, over the last couple of decades, not to build. As a consequence, Russia and China have now successfully reversed the balance of military power in their favour, and one shouldn’t take their claims as mere bluff. In an address to the nation given on March 1, 2018, Vladimir Putin presented Russia’s brandnew weapon systems as animated videos and called upon the U.S. to accept the new facts and come to the negotiating table so to bring forth a new international order (the terms of which would of course be dictated by the communists). So it is no exaggeration to say that the world has now – 200th birthday of Karl Marx! – indeed arrived at a scenario desperately warned of by Soviet defector Anatoliy Golitsyn 35 long years ago, namely a scenario of “cooperation-blackmail”, in which a communist bloc that would have acquired overwhelming military superiority would be able to force its tyrannical system of Marxism-Leninism upon a completely unprepared Western world. And the Russian Armed Forces’ recent military drill in September this year, Vostok-2018, which involved three hundred thousand men (and 900 tanks), speak a fairly clear language. Watch Putin’s speech, that has simultaneous English interpretation, on the video embedded below, beginning at the 1:25:00 mark (which is where it starts getting interesting):
By the way, also in “Russia”, Karl Marx’s 200th birthday was officially celebrated, and so by the Communist Party of the Russian Federation led by Gennady Zyuganov (who is at excellent terms with Vladimir Putin), the CPRF simply being the most blatant and obvious successor of the old Communist Party Soviet Union, as in fact all other parties that now constitute Russia’s new “democratic pluralism” are mere branches of the CPSU, too!
The overall picture gets even more disturbing as one looks at the United Nations, where indeed a former President of the Socialist International (António Guterres of Portugal) now holds the post of Secretary General. His insidious initiatives (apart from the UN’s deadly “Global Warming” scheme), the “Global Compact on Refugees” and especially the “Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration”, meanwhile signed by most countries of the world (but allegedly not legally binding!), represent a literal sword of Damocles hanging over the nations of the West, endangering their very existence as nations on the long run – which is the key goal of Marxism (and of Theosophy): Destroy the Christian world!
German Chancellor Angela Merkel (like Barack Obama, a more-than-obvious communist Trojan Horse) has lost her chairmanship of the CDU, but remains Chancellor nonetheless. She never liked the party, but only used it as a stepping stone to power. In other words, she will certainly not step down as Chancellor, but will complete her present term all the way till 2021, destroying ever further, along with her socialistic colleague in France, President Emmanuel Macron, any remaining European nationhood in exchange for an all-powerful European super-state that will soon have a unified European army (which would certainly kill NATO), centralised taxation and all other features known from the old days of the USSR. The final death knell will then be – as of yet unimaginable for West Europeans – a merger with the unchanged Soviet Union, including all its former republics, which would realise the communists’ long-desired goal of a “Common European Home from the Atlantic to Vladivostok”, read: an all-communist Eurasia!
Where does this leave America, or Japan, or Australia and New Zealand – or Britain (should Brexit indeed become a reality)? In a position of utmost isolation! The revolutionary madness in the United States – led and organised by the Democratic Party, that is now in fact the Communist Party – will sooner or later overthrow any constitutional government whatsoever and erect a brutal communist tyranny, with already-communist California leading the way (while hardcore Leninist Jeremy Corbyn is patiently waiting for his chance to become British Prime Minister). President Trump, despite all his good intentions, will hardly be able to stem the revolutionary tide that threatens America both from without and from within. We are witnessing, in real time, the falling apart of the entire post-WW-II international order. God help us all…
As some final sources this author would highly recommend, here are two one-hour-plus discussions of December 29, 2017 and November 15, 2018 respectively, involving J. R. Nyquist and Benjamin Baruch, titled “Road to World War III” and “The Path to Armageddon”. They are not pleasant…
The two gentlemen have also written a book together that is quite profound and should be of interest to anybody who cares about what is going on in the world: The New Tactics of Global War is available via amazon.
