The following has been translated from the Voix De Faits blog, in Québec City. Voix De Faits is a blog of the Québec section of NEFAC, the North Eastern Federation of Anarchist Communists, a platformist organization. I may disagree with labelling the new ruling class that the Nepalese Maoists want to shove down the throats of their people as "capitalist". My own term is "managerial". In the rest of the world, with the defeat of fascism and the collapse of other Leninist regimes a more benign form of this ruling class has come to power. In Molly's view the pathetic Leninist aspiration to power is primitive in that a better form of the class rule that they propose already holds sway in the commanding heights of the economy through most of the world. This managerial ruling class "uses" sometimes more or less "capitalist" forms of political economy, but at other times uses political manipulation of the economy to achieve their goals. They are superior to the failed Leninist experiments of the last century (and the soon-to-fail Cuban experiment) simply because they are more flexible and less hidebound by ideology(religious belief ?). All that being said I cannot express the degree of loathing that I have for the cultists of the greatest mass-murderers that human history has ever seen. The following article expresses the essence of Maoism (the lowest of the low in a field filled with scum), only using a different name for the evil.
The vast Maoist revolution in Nepal is ... a capitalist revolution!
In Nepal, the ex-Maoist rebels are currently on the verge of becoming the first party of the constituent assembly, elected Thursday, which will allow the transformation of the monarchy in the Republic and will force the king to abdicate. The Maoists have won or are leading in 98 districts now. They are also about to get a simple majority, beating the same old political formations such as the Congress and the Communist Party of Nepal Unified Marxist-Leninist (center-left).
It will be recalled that the people's war in Nepal, led by the Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist adherents "(...) is regarded as a bright hope not only for the Nepalese masses, but also for the entire international proletariat and the oppressed peoples (...)"!( PCR (Co) - Arsenal no.2).
The newspaper Le Monde, published this week, an interview with the general Nepali Maoist ideologue, Baburam Bhattarai, the right arm of the Party, the no.1 in the Party. According to this interview, one of the highlights of their revolutionary program, "(...) would be to initiate a political transition dominated by the capitalist revolution (...)"! Oh yes! The famous transition period, which after years of propaganda will eventually become the famous revolution desired ...
After the peace accord in 2006, which ended the conflict which has claimed more than 13,000 deaths in 10 years, the Nepali Maoists now proclaim that their aim in the short and medium term is neither socialism nor even Social Democracy, but to erect a triumphant capitalism! For a revolution acclaimed by the Maoist Parties , as the embryo of the new wave of world revolution, which rises with increasing strength, and that was afford to build a new world finally free from all forms of exploitation, we can say that it's rather tipsy.
After revolution, the only solution is that the Nepali Maoists modus operandi becomes this only solution? After Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot etc .. how many disastrous examples of genocide are necessary to demonstrate that Maoism militants are not a hope for the oppressed masses, but rather a dictatorship established and maintained by force? ------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------
Here is the article in the newspaper Le Monde
... Baburam Bhattarai is in a three-story villa with red tiles, located in a suburb of Kathmandu where modest brick houses rise on the side of the ravine. A look at the portrait gallery of red saints red adorning his living room, tells us that this man then, number two in the Communist Party adherents of the Nepali Maoist (CPN-M), must have a sacred dogma. Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Mao: the display of references is clear. Eyes half closed, a thin mustache covering severe lips, Baburam Bhattarai affects of the dryness of a former guerrilla shaped by life in the resistance.
And yet, the man is a master of the brilliantly contortions of the dialectic. It is probably not a coincidence that this former architecture student, holds a PhD at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in New Delhi, is a great lover of chess, and passes for the ideologue of Nepalese Maoism.(See Déclassé Intellectuals in the works of Max Nomad-Mollymew) At age 53, he became a key person, alongside the leader of the party, Pushpa Kamal Dahal, alias "Prachenda" (the Terrible),around the reconstitution of the political life of Nepal around a republican calendar that they were able to impose on the traditional parties at gunpoint.
Mr. Bhattarai exudes confidence. He is sure of his case: the abolition of the monarchy and to gain power. He is confident even though the lucky red star CPN-M, can afford the luxury of polishing revolutionary jargon. Since power, he believes, is close and it will still take some useful steps to be achieve it, it is important to reach out, to be accommodating. Thus, if "the abolition of the monarchy" and "the elimination of feudalism" return as leitmotifs in his speech, he spoke ,strangely enough little about, "socialism".
Certainly, the goal remains as "long term", but in the meantime, priority will be to initiate a "political transition" dominated by the "capitalist revolution".The supreme Irony, the Maoists have a mission, if you understand Mr. Bhattarai correctly, to implement capitalism in Nepal!
"We will not nationalise big industry and we will respect free enterprise", he said . The charm offensive against the bosses had already begun: the leaders of the CPN-M have come to meet with the office of the Federation of Industry and Commerce.
He says, we have reassured them, and they are willing to work with us."
Is not such openness is not in flagrant contradiction with the orthodox Marxism-Leninism professed by the CPN-M? "Absolutely not," Mr. Bhattarai protests."Marx, Engels and Lenin had already written on the subject," he says. Between feudalism and socialism, there is capitalism.. However there is still no capitalism in Nepal. It must be developed.
" Indeed, the ideologue of the CPN-M now is wary of models. While he still reveres Mao - a porcelain bust of the Great Helmsman is on a throne on a table in the living room - he wants to "go beyond Mao." "We must develop our own style", he says. "Marxism is not a religion, it is a science. We want to develop Marxism."(Booolsheet amigo-Molly) And that "Marxism to develop" must accommodate itself to democracy?
Mr. Bhattarai said, accepting the "competitive multi-party system". Of course, the Maoists are critical of a parliamentary system on the "Westminster model, "a source of instability". They want institutional reform to establish a "presidential system similar to the French." But Mr. Bhattarai assures us that he has nothing against democracy. Intoxication? Conversion sincere? History will judge fairly fairly soon

Also, if you are interested, you can read the message of solidarity from PCR (co) on the occasion of the 8th anniversary of the war in Nepal, published in the journal Arsenal(Maoist scumbags-Molly) ... Are they talking about the same revolution?
Dear comrades,
We extend our warmest greetings on the occasion of the 8th anniversary of the outbreak of the People's War. Starting from almost nothing, but armed with what is most important - a Party, an ideological line and a correct political line, as well as a deep bond with and supported by the broad masses - the combatants of what would become the mighty and glorious People's Liberation Army began with great courage a long and arduous struggle, which is now a bright hope not only for the Nepalese masses, but also for the entire international proletariat and the oppressed peoples.(or at least the inferior members of the managerial ruling class who can't get directing jobs otherwise-Molly)
By constantly advancing in the fight against the reactionary classes and the imperialist powers that support them, and building, step by step, a new popular power, the oppressed masses in Nepal run by your Party have established a solid base of support for the global revolution.
The considerable success that you have already won prove once again, in the words of Mao, a just cause still enjoys considerable support, and that ,when it is conducted properly, it is possible to combat and win even against the enemies of the most despotic and in the most difficult conditions that exist.
The people's war you lead past eight years is a vivid demonstration of the great power of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, ie The ideology of the proletariat internationally reinforced by the experience of more than 150 years of struggle for socialism and communism. (Maoist language is so weird. all that I can say is that my asshole is not just chewing bubblegum, if this is true,but it is blowing multicolour bubbles. The comrades of Voix De Faits added this bit for the sake of irony. as they say...)
A little ironic or not?

I is really hard to believe that Maoism has reared its head again. No doubt their local versions will try to make much of the Napalese situation. But we must also remember that the Maoists are also involved in a rather sucessful guerrilla war with the Indian Govt., so we may hear even more praises of the Great Helmsman yet.This time, however, the libertarian let in the rest of the world is much better (vastly better) established than in the 1960's so I don't fear a Maoist takeover and destruction of the movements as what happened before.
