 H.3 What are the myths of state socialism?
Thus the fact that Leninists have appropriated libertarian (and working class) ideas and demands does not, in fact, mean that we aim for the same thing (as we discuss in section H.3.1, this is far from the case).
The Leninist perspective is to see the revolutionary party as the leadership of the working class, introducing socialist consciousness into a class which cannot generate itself (see section H.5.1).
Firstly, it gave Marxists even more potential to portray anarchism as being primarily against the state and not as equally opposed to capitalism, hierarchy and inequality (as we argue in section H.2.4, anarchists have opposed the state as just one aspect of class society). /anarchy/secH3.html

 Marxism-Leninism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
After Lenin's death, his ideology and contributions to Marxist theory were termed "Marxism-Leninism," or sometimes only "Leninism." Marxism-Leninism soon became the official name for the ideology of the Comintern and of communist parties around the world.
Lenin himself never used the term "Leninism," nor did he refer to his views as "Marxism-Leninism." However, his ideas diverged from classical Marxist theory on several important points (see the articles on Marxism and Leninism for more information,) and it became evident that a new name was required to describe his ideology.
Several Communist parties, especially those previously associated with Eurocommunism, have distanced themselves from the concept of Marxism-Leninism and in many cases have omitted it from their official documents. /wiki/Marxism-Leninism

 Parecon & Marxism - 4 (ZNet Blog)
Yet, the good Leninists - of which most and maybe virtually all Leninists are—are in a Trotskyist Party, or a Leninist party, or some tiny sect, etc., all in the Marxist Leninist tradition.
The first fault, potentially correctable even while one is a Marxist, is a relative conceptual over-attentiveness to class and its associated economic sphere of life and parallel/derivative conceptual under-attentiveness to race, gender, sexuality, and political position and the associated kinship, cultural, and political spheres of social life.
For many Marxists, particularly in groups that work hard to attain and maintain a collective identity, such innovation violates a major tenet about the priority of class and economy, and if it is ever undertaken at all, later, under pressure of events, it tends to be jettisoned. /index.php/weblog/entry/241

 Declaration of the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement (RIM)
From this reality flows the Leninist view, confirmed by history, that the world proletarian revolution is composed essentially of two streams - the proletarian-socialist revolution waged by the proletariat and its allies in the imperialist citadels and the national liberation, or new democratic revolution waged by the nations and peoples subjugated to imperialism.
It would be extremely irresponsible, and contrary to the Marxist theory of knowledge, to fail to attach adequate importance to experience gained and lessons learned in the course of mass revolutionary struggles of millions of people and paid for by countless martyrs.
The October Revolution was the living confirmation of Lenin's vital development of the Marxist theory of the proletarian revolution and the dictatorship of the proletariat. /rim/rimdec.htm - texts - Anarchist vs. Marxist-Leninist Thought on the Organization of Society by Lorenzo Komboa Ervin
The position by the Leninists of the necessity for a dictatorship to protect the revolution was not proven in the Civil War which followed the Russian Revolution; in fact, without the support of the Anarchists and other Left-wing forces, along with the Russian people, the Bolshevik government would have been defeated.
Unlike members of Leninist parties, whose daily lives are generally similar to present bourgeoisie lifestyles, Anarchist organizational structures and lifestyles, through communal living arrangements, affinity groups, squatting, etc., attempt to reflect the liberated society of the future.
Anarchists feel that this is itself part of the Marxist school of falsification. /texts/anar_vs_marx.html

Marxists have always held that the objective mode of existence of the proletariat is as an international class but have not always put this into practice at political and organisational levels.
This attitude towards revolutionary leadership is quite at odds with the Marxist approach which sees the thoughts and actions of leaders as expressions of the interests of parties and classes rather than the divine inspirations of individuals.
Attempts to inaugurate vanguard Leninist parties in the imperialist countries during the last thirty years or so have not been a success. /reality/polemic/mlorg.htm

In Marxist political theory, the Marxist/Leninist party acts as the guiding force for the working class and, once in power, the enforcer of socialist laws.
Thus, communism will be ushered in by the dialectic and social evolution, through the vehicle of the dictatorship of the proletariat (guided by the Marxist/Leninist party).
Marxists are willing to call for a one-world dictatorship of the proletariat because they expect to control it. /Essays/M-L_Summaries/politics.htm

 Leninism : Marxist-Leninists
In China, Leninist ideology and structure were the basis of organization for both the Kuomintang and the Communist Party of China and formed the starting point for Maoism.
Many Marxist critics of Leninism, which included social democrats and Eurocommunists held that the Bolshevik program was contrary to Marx's theory of history.
After the fall of the Soviet Union, Leninist policies became considerably less popular in the third world. /ma/marxist-leninists.html

 Question Everything
Neither Leninists nor Liberals believe in real free speech, the biggest difference between them is that the Marxist-Leninist are honest about suppressing opposition while the Liberals pretend to implement free speech while actually destroying it via corporate control of the media.
Thus their theory of a "dictatorship of the proletariat" is contradictory, they seek to censor themselves. /2004/01/if-bourgeois-ideas-are-to-be.html

 16 - Is a Marxist-Leninist Party Needed? by Danny Rubin >
Where I want to go is to a Marxist party, - not of the old type, but one which is sufficiently large and such a center of attraction of the left that it can seriously seek to become a mass Party of 500,000 to a million members or more and with a vote commensurately larger.
This is especially so if the broad left properly relates to the mass, and if the socialists and Marxists have their own forms and properly develop relations with all the rest.
That doesn't mean there isn't room for broad left formations but they are not a substitute for the mass democratic and the mass democratic movement will not gradually and eventually join the broadly-left formation, even though some day they will come to its politics through their own experience and organizational forms. /EDIN/.left/CoC/.dandi/.di2/.2.16.html

 March 2001
Marxists believe their historical perspective is based strictly on a scientific view of the world, and that this scientific approach makes their view better suited than any other to interpret history.
Thus it appears that, for the Marxist, economics is the only dynamic force in history, and all other aspects of mankind and his society are determined by it.
Because this conclusion would destroy the need for a Marxist worldview, because (if it were true) it would mean that man is powerless to change the course of history and therefore need not act or adhere to any ideology. /SchwarzReport/2001/november01.html

 Was Chairman Mao a Marxist-Leninist?
Leninist policy is to pre-empt the desertion; enter the Socialist phase, with agrarian revolt, before the bourgeoisie attacks.
There is not a single Marxist mind in the CC of the CCP capable of understanding..
The CCP CC was unable to use the rich period of the bloc with the Kuomintang in order to conduct energetic work in openly organising the revolution, the proletariat, the peasantry, the revolutionary military units, the revolutionizing of the army, the work of setting the soldiers against the generals. /archives/55/122.html

 The Celia Hart Controversy: Stalinism or Leninism - Part Three
The Leninist regime was destroyed by Stalin and replaced by a bureaucratic and totalitarian regime in which the sole duty of the Party was to sing the praises of the Leader, and in which opposition and dissent was rewarded by expulsion, arrest and imprisonment.
Despite the “Marxist” terminology that the Mensheviks gave it, it is a purely reformist position.
But for Leninists, the fight for democracy is not an end in itself but only a means to an end. /Theory/celia_hart_controversy_part_3.html

 Marxist "Science" and Revolutionary "Faith" in Nicaragua
A good analogy to the Marxist notion of the unity of theory and practice is the ancient Roman's custom of consulting auspices, or reading the entrails of beasts, before adopting a particular plan of battle.
Nicaragua is one of seven countries in the world today where an anti-Communist resistance movement is waging guerrilla warfare against an avowedly Marxist government.
For example, when he examines the historical background of the FSLN's ideology, he discusses only those elements (the Nicaraguan tradition of revolt, the Sandino legend, the Marxism of the student subculture, the Cuban revolution) that the Sandinistas themselves acknowledge as having influenced their thinking and world view. /public/1986/january/bk7.cfm

 On Proletarian Democracy By the Central Reorganisation Committee, Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) --
The Marxist position that there are no eternal values, and that the value system of different periods are closely linked with the socio-economic systems of each period has already been proven beyond doubt.
On the other hand, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has officially opposed the latest positions of Gorbachev while generally supporting the bureaucrat bourgeois sections in the Soviet party as well as in the Chinese party.
When the people of the former socialist countries put the communist strategy of monopoly power for the party during the whole transitional phase of socialism on the dock of history, communists cannot remain satisfied with the consolation that this is the result of backward thinking among the people. /bob_avakian/democracy/crc-document.htm -> Marxism and Anarchism - Can there be a compomise?
Perhaps it will be the young Marxists who shake off all the old Leninist crap and the young anarchists who are not over-burdened with respect for their elders that will meet one another, over time, in the common struggle to establish the rule of the working class as a class.
For example, a "classical" Marxist who advocates the beginning of the transition to communism on "day one" after the revolution (no intermediate "strong state" socialism) might discover that in practice the only difference would be one of terminology...rather trivial under the circumstances.
To be a "Marxist" in your view is to study and memorize "the holy words of the scriptures" without a moment's thought as to what these guys were really saying, much less why. /index.php?showtopic=6379

The claim that the process followed, in establishing the Soviet Union, is compatible with the Marxist laws of social development upon which scientific-socialism rests, has to be declared as false and the reason for doing so fully explained to all socialists.
As a consequence, an amendment to the Marxist Declaration (1996) is well overdue, to clarify and bring into full view the importance of the stage of development of the instruments of production within the Soviet forces of production in the Soviet era.

 RA Cuckoo In The OP Nest (Issue 10)
The Marxist 'dictatorship of the proletariat' and the leninist party dictatorship, are two completely different things.
The bankruptcy of the Leninist and Stalinist traditions being so complete, no amount of subjective hand-wringing, breast-beating etc., as to the necessity of openness, unity and so on in the wake of the traumatic collapse of existing Stalinism, could defeat the objective logic of vanguard organisation and structure.
Leninist thought is also more complex than 'simple' Marxism. /open/ra_cuckoo.html

 Provisional government - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Provisional governments often occur as the result of a revolution or in wartime when an occupied nation or territory has been liberated or, conversely, when a government has been deposed by an invading army.
The government led France from 1944 until the establishment of the Fourth Republic in 1947.

 Dictatorship - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The prototype of the fascist dictatorship was fashioned in Italy after 1922, and later emulated by Nazi Germany (beginning in 1933), as well as by a number of other fascist or quasi-fascist European governments during the 1930s.
Dictatorship, in contemporary usage, refers to absolute rule by a leadership (usually one dictator) unrestricted by law, constitutions, or other social and political factors within the state.
There were no such dictatorships after the beginning of the 2nd century BCE, and later dictators such as Sulla and the Roman Emperors exercised power much more personally and arbitrarily. /wiki/Dictatorship   (374 words)

 How Leninism distorts Marxism
Leninists believe that the Russian Revolution of 1917, led by Lenin and the Bolshevik Party, was a great socialist revolution that overthrew capitalism and put the working class in power, i.e., it was a workers’ state, healthy or otherwise, i.e., bureaucratically degenerated.
Various Leninist sects will quarrel amongst themselves as to which group is the true church of dogmatists, the one and only true vanguard party of the working class.
For us, Leninist vanguard parties and state capitalist party states posing as “workers’ states” are tragic failed nightmares that continued capitalist social relations in statified form. /how_leninism_distorts.htm   (374 words)

Through the 1930's Hook continued to write and polemicise on Marxist subjects, including the program for the American Workers Party, a new Trotskyist party formed due to the failure of the Communist Party to work for the interests of the working-class.
Born in New York City, Hook began his political activity and support of Marxist ideas while still a high school student.
Excelling especially in philosophy, he began teaching, first in public schools and then as a professor of philosophy at New York University from 1927-1969, after which he served as a senior research fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. /marx/glossary/people/h/o.htm   (374 words)

However, connected to the re-emergence of revisionism in the Marxist movement is the important lesson that not all those claiming to be opposed to revisionism are Marxist-Leninists.
The attitude they adopt towards Leninist peaceful coexistence (and not its Khrushchevite distortion) is one of the issues, amongst other, which clearly reveal their phoney Marxism-Leninism which is used to miseducate the vanguard layers of the working class and those struggling for national liberation.
On the right of the communist movement, the Khrushchevite revisionists tried to palm off their revisionist peaceful coexistence as Leninist peaceful coexistence, the latter, which was upheld by Stalin. /html/peaceco.html   (374 words)

More important, the actual Leninist cadre in every country were deracinated intellectuals (often colonials educated by Marxist-Leninist professors in the imperial centers of London, Paris, and Lisbon), who were generally ignorant of, and contemptuous or hostile toward, ethnicity, religion, and culture.
The Marxist centralizing governments of Africa are descendants of the regimes of Western imperialism established in the late nineteenth century.
Instead, the coercive centralizing regimes of these so-called "nations" were turned over to the deracinated Marxist intellectuals educated in the imperial capitals, who soon became a parasitic bureaucratic class taxing and oppressing the peaceful peasantry who constitute the bulk of the actual producers in Africa. /rothbard/ir/Ch35.html   (374 words)

 A Plea for Conservative Radicals and Radical Conservatives
To be sure, Marxist-Leninists are there to exploit a valid desire for change, and since the Marxist-Leninists are ruthless and well organized, we who care about freedom as well as justice must not be blind to their totalitarian goals.
Conservatives, for their part, suggest that the radicals’ emphasis on justice rather than freedom conceals Marxist sympathies or at least a culpable naïveté about the evils of communist totalitarianism.
But to defend Marcos and South African President P. Botha as Jerry Falwell has done, saying that a Marxist takeover must be prevented, is to play into the hands of the communists. /showarticle.asp?title=1050   (374 words)

 Lenin in context (by L. Proyect)
The next time you run into one of our latter-day "Marxist- Leninists" who trace their lineage to the historic split between the Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks in the Russian Social Democracy, give them a little quiz.
Many contemporary "Leninists" attach some kind of apocalyptic meaning to the split at the second congress of the Russian Social Democracy in 1903 as if two radically different and irreconcilable sets of principles were counterposed to each other--Bolshevism and Menshevism.
The differences between orthodox Marxists who were educated by Plekhanov and, on the other hand, the Economists who gravitated to the newspaper "Rabochaya Mysl" were principled and clear. /~lnp3/mydocs/organization/lenin_in_context.htm   (374 words)
