Communism is a phenomenon of the XXth century after centuries of tyrant monarchies, aristocratic elites, bourgeois arrogance, colonial armies and political blindness over the sufferance of the vulnerable and “dependent” as described in my previous post, but communism was also a momentum, a revolutionary idea that emerged from sufferance, not from reason, experience and knowledge. It may have been an ideal such the City of God may have been an ideal, but it never became a reality.
Instead of communism, socialism emerged from a politics that confiscated all properties from not-dependent people and entities, as described in my previous post , and distributed this wealth among the dependent. Thought, the capital only changed hands and values, because the very nature of a capital is to “function” or to “have a function”. A land will “function” to make the grain and participate in social sustainability. A building will “function” to host offices, maybe administrations and businesses and it will “have a function” in the sense that it can mean something to a community, where they can gather and organize community activities. A farm, a church, a temple, a factory may “have a function”.
To “function”, the people or the community need to develop a knowledge, acquire experience and articulate their “function” with other people’s “function”. We see over the history of communism that it was not an easy task and that politicians at some point failed to create a global community where people are equal, and in fact, did this notion of equality ever existed in the Communist ideal?
Though the term “communism” can refer to specific political parties, at its core, communism is an ideology of economic equality through the elimination of private property.
The beliefs of communism, most famously expressed by Karl Marx, center on the idea that inequality and suffering result from capitalism. Under capitalism, private business people and corporations own all the factories, equipment and other resources called “the means of production.” These owners, according to communist doctrine, can then exploit workers, who are forced to sell their labor for wages.
The working class — or “proletariat” — must rise up against the capitalist owners, or “bourgeoisie,” according to the ideals of communism, and institute a new society with no private property, no economic classes and no profits.https://www.livescience.com/42980-what-is-communism.html
As explained on the video above, the notions of employees and employers have disappeared with Communism and were replaced with a very significant symbol of the hammer and the sickle, the industrial worker and the farmer, two different functions in two different geographies. Mainland China is a vast land of fields and forests with concentrated large cities. Some cities are overbuilt while some others are under developed and despite the vague notion of properties between individuals, communities and the state, large disparities emerged from the value of each function. Communism was created without the mechanism to articulate the wealth among the people, and in China, the “Red Sun in the Sky” is not without a parallel to the “Forbidden city”, with the human leader that imbodies the Sun of traditional China. It is also a parallel to a form of hierarchy between the urbanites and the rurals, the secret and the public, the ruler and the ruled. On this subject, I recommend you to read my post on Patreon about Hagia Irene because this Chinese cultural notion of the Sun associated to “the leader” has many parallels with several ancient coercive systems that I will develop later. The following are the verses of the song:
The sun in the sky is red
In our hearts is the sun Mao Zedong
He leads us to liberation
The masses stand up to be the owners
Oh we thank them!
The masses stand up to be the owners
The sun in the sky is redLyrics translate
In our hearts is the sun Mao Zedong
He leads us to move forward
The revolutionary country is a piece of red yeah
Oh we thank them!
The revolutionary country is a piece of red
Mao means “hair” or “feather” and Zedong means “moist, grace, brilliance“. The name Mao Zedong could be translated into the “graceful feather“. Egyptians referred to the feather as knowledge. I make the parallel to Egypt in here because whole of the Chinese ancient culture emanates from Ancient cultures of Egypt and we cannot understand modern China without a certain understanding of its roots in history. In the song, “the revolutionary country is a piece of the red” as a reference to the sun, and in the Chinese “heart” is the sun, it is moved by emotional standards such the notion of equality as seen above.
The postulate of communism only does exist because, at the root of the system, another system existed before, which was divided in two classes of oppressed “dependent” and oppressive “not-dependent” people, where the “dependent” was reduced to a state of slavery, not being able to own a property, not being able to control the value of work, the function of work and correct or reduce its vulnerabilities. At least, the oppressed “dependent” class may have had the feeling so, what not necessarily originates in factual slavery, but in such feeling that oppression enslaved them into their dependencies. This state of slavery encouraged communism to “free” a class of people from a certain notion of “capitalism”, people and entities, which in this reductive notion of “ownership”, hold and control the society and precisely, the “means of production” from the capital.

Capital is a broad term that can describe any thing that confers value or benefit to its owner, such as a factory and its machinery, intellectual property like patents, or the financial assets of a business or an individual. While money itself may be construed as capital is, capital is more often associated with cash that is being put to work for productive or investment purposes.https://www.investopedia.com/terms/c/capital.asp
In this sense, the owners of a land in ancient Chinese history, would not only own the land, its trees, its fauna, its flora, its rivers and beaches. The owner of the land would also own “the people” who are settled on this land, and mostly farmers who are part of the working capital. They are the arms of the working capital that confers the value of a field, of a forest, of natural ressources. For farmers to be reduced into a state slavery, the notion of “people” had to be exposed to several philosophical considerations that would question the very nature of their humanity, their right to determine of their own body, their right to schedule their days, their limits to fatigue, their right to determine rather to have children, how to raise them, educate them and how the nature of the land would affect their freedom. The following video really well explains how people are un-freed and how the various means of their resistance expose a reality on slavery. To resist slavery, workers in coton fields have used absconding, working gangs, the underground rail road to move out of the plantations, stealing, stealing away such suicide, arson, birth cycle, cultural survival and revolt.
The definition of a “people” emerged with a certain degree of “consciousness”. Black American slavery has raised a level of consciousness with the displacement of people from Africa to the United-States and probably because part of the first American settlers had been farmers themselves in Europe, people who were born into a feudal system and escaped the feudal system by flying over seas. They came in America to free themselves and where cities were concentrating labor, emerged the consciousness of rights, human rights, the kind of rights that philosophers and lawmakers had written into the law in Alexandria, in Constantinople, in Ravenna, in Chartres, in Wittenberg, in Philadelphia or in Paris. Where religions had built servitudes, kings and emperors had built feudalism. Slavery did not come from nowhere and it was not abolished from nowhere either. Slavery existed in Ancient Egypt, around the Mediterranean sea and in Asia at least with certainty from ethnographic architectural representations. Religions have been a mean to escape slavery, at least since the creation of Israel, but the fate of a people is dependent of the land and the “function” of a land inside and out.
The United-States started a revolution in 1775 and France 14 years later in 1789. Humanity had changed during the XVIIIth and XIXth centuries and also industries and trades. From classes, emerged a democracy with human rights and constitutions. It was the force of a people to articulate their differences with the authority of universal laws drawn from the ancient culture of philosophers and humanists. When Russia started its revolution in 1917, it was not the peasants against an aristocracy. It was a gang of politics against a tzar and later Stalin committed the immeasurable in reviving slavery as a means of power, the eradication of entire classes of the population to rule without a rival. Hitler did worse at the same epoch by exterminating people on racial grounds, but Mao Zedong, on the model of both Stalin and Hitler, murdered more than 45 millions people both on the ground of classes and geographical racial cultures. If Stalin and Mao Zedong had a common ground, it was their “deification” through the symbols of communism to subjugate the people and eliminate resistance, symbols that beyond the hammer and the sickle, would tackle the collective memory into their faith and their hopes. With the “Red Sun in the Sky“, the imposture turned the crimes into a simulacre of justice, worse than any Emperor or any Tzar before them.
A belligerent Stalin addresses a closed party session in October 1925. He declares war on Russia’s farmers. “It is foolish to think a civil war has ended, it has not” Stalin proclaims, “we must create another revolution, a revolution from above”. Confusion smites the party leaders, “what does he mean, we should attack the source of our wealth”, but no word of this reaches the farmers, their yield increases, the economy flourishes and the farmers continue to bring their grain to the docks for shipment abroad. Grain, as the Soviet Union principle export, is also its chief source of hard currency. Thanks to its farmers, Russia is able to buy the machinery needed for rapid industrialization and for the first time in living memory enjoys a respectable economy whimsically the success of communism now depends on capitalism.
In 1927, to increase government cashflow, Stalin fiddles with grain prices and raises taxes. It doesn’t work. The farmers bork and refused to sell their grain. Now Stalin sets off on a whistle-stop campaign through the farming area of the Soviet Union beginning with Siberia. At each town and village, he lashes out at the newly prosperous farmers, the so called kulaks, denouncing them as enemies of the people and demanding their arrest as criminals affording grain while millions of their countrymen starve. The kulaks are traditional enemies of central authority. The Tsars have preyed on them for centuries and now, Stalin. Returning to Moscow, Stalin escalates his revolution from above. “We must not place our industry at the mercy of kulak caprices, we must make sure that state operated farms provide a third of our yield”. Stalin’s plan is to provoque an upheaval in the villages but will rip to shreds the fabric of rural soviet life and deliver the kulaks up for slavery. He redefines the word kulak to include all but the poorest of the poor. Frightened and confused, the kulaks pass the word among themselves to assemble in Moscow and request a hearing. They pour in from all corners of the vast Soviet Union and get their hearing upon which Stalin declares them capitalists and enemies of the people, but they tell each other, “we are the people”.
Stalin’s offensive is underway and now he displays his mastery of the political Arts beginning with the setup in the village of Ludorvai these kulaks had sentence certain village layabouts to a flogging. Stalin seizes the moment. He orders an exhibition trial to be staged and the media to paint the lurid picture of kulaks grinding the faces of the poor. The wretched kulaks get 10 years. Their farms are confiscated. It is an ominous precedent. Now Stalin pleased with his phony trial ordered an all-out media assault. “Kulaks are the stronghold of counter-revolution, rise up in arms against the kulaks”, “liquidate the kulak class”, “use your fists against the kulak fist”. The talion of Stalin’s secret police, the OGPU are now phased into the assault and the work begins. Thousands of kulak families are rusted from their homes, their land, grain, implements and livestock plundered. The scavengers missed nothing. Every last kernel is gleamed and carted off.From mn 9:38 of https://youtu.be/87KQfyLFhDU
The dekulakization of Russia was ruled by Stalin on 27 December 1929, the “liquidation of the kulaks as a class” […] “All kulaks were assigned to one of three categories:
Those to be shot or imprisoned as decided by the local secret political policehttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dekulakization
Those to be sent to Siberia, the North, the Urals or Kazakhstan, after confiscation of their property
Those to be evicted from their houses and used in labour colonies within their own districts”
The Communist party of China emerged in Yan’an, North of China where 87,000 soldiers deserted the Nationalist army of China for the Long March to join the Red army of Mao Zedong. In Yan’an, they were trained and sometimes sent in Russia where they were forged in the communist ideology of looting and murdering villagers. Mao Zedong became the “chairman” of the worse genocide in the history of humanity, killing political opponents, exterminating full classes and not only their wealth, but also their knowledge, their traditions and their heirlooms. The new China of Mao Zedong was emptied from inside, worse than any war could have ever wiped an enemy. China was mutilated from its past and its ancient cultures, all the elites of the country gone, exterminated, decimated, leaving the people headless.
Mao Zedong did not lead a revolution, he did not come with new ideas, he did not expose a vision, he did not argue his foundation. Mao Zedong has led a war against his own people and the generals of this war were in Russia. The ideology, the directions, the armament, the strategy came from Russia while Mao Zedong was an executant who later enshrined tyranny as a way of ruling. As we can see on the following video, the dependences of China toward Russia continue and it is astonishing that China must import poultry with so many farmers on its lands. Its is astonishing how Russia keeps gaining influence, how Russia develops the tools while China provides the labor. This level of dependencies makes no mysteries of the vilains, and all Europeans shall question today who is making the tools in their industries. Karl Marx was German, and communism did not navigate to the East with books. German Comintern agents such Otto Braun have led the war in China to colonize Asia with an ideology where communism killed the elite, leaving the lower classes exposed to a collectivization of hands at work on German and Russian machines. It is unclear if Otto Braun was related to Eva Braun, the mistress and wife of Hitler, but both Eva and Otto were from Munich. The Utopia of Communism tamed a proletariat into a new industrial class of coolies. There were no colonial boats, and no colonial armies, just the unreachable utopia of communism where collectivism erased all properties in order to implant machines on no man’s lands. China became a country of slaves. The slaves of an industrial revolution.
The modern reality of China does not sound like a “people”. It is more or less a colonial counter with beautiful facades and an ugly back store where people despair. China was colonized and is still colonized, leaving the whole country in red, like the sufferance, the struggles, the inequalities, the incapacity to balance the society beyond the utopia. The wake of China is smuggled toward routes and long is stretched the blood of its people. While shame and dishonor leave them orphans, they believed that the chairman was their father. He was just the executioner to murder and enslave the people, those weak, who could not see that red stars don’t make a sun.

The entropy of Communist China comes after many attempts from the West to conquer the East and where the Chinese armada would have dominated the sea, an ideology destroyed China from inside leaving the rubbles into the hands of a tyrannique party. Stalin masterminded Communist China and the role of Germany is unclear, but looking into the life of Karl Marx, we find Napoleon’s imperial project of building an administrative union where land owners no more battle the collectivization of labor. Capitalism was born in people’s hands like a live cash in a net.

It is said that Karl Marx was born on May 5, 1818 (5 / 5 / 1818) from a mother related to “Philips Electronics” and I do personally question the reality of his existence, the purpose of his manifesto, the century gape between his birth and the bolchevick revolution, the course of events that occurred in Europe and the phenomenal imagination of the enlightens. He created an utopia that no economist of his time or any other time would have dared and maybe, this is too much light for a simple bulb. I question the military strategy behind communism and the Machiavellianism of Napoleon, a man who though of himself as a legend.
