What is the first name that the words ‘genocide’,‘dictator’ or ‘evil’ bring to the mind for most people?
Hitler, isn’t it?
What about secret police?
Gestapo, isn’t it?
What about evil regime?
Nazi Germany, isn’t it?
Hitler is an amateur when you compare him to Joseph Stalin and Mao Tse Tung. His liquidation of SA pales in comparison to the horrific great purge of 1937-38 which Stalin used to eliminate all the old Bolsheviks (the ones who drove the Russian revolution of 1917), over a hundred political opponents, and three million other nameless people. The victims of Mao’s great leap forward (1958-62) alone equals the population of Gujarat today.
Gestapo looks like a mere gathering of classroom bullies when compared to Joseph Stalin’s NKVD , which employed around 366000 agents to identify, arrest and liquidate “enemies of the people” and “counterrevolutionaries” or “conspirators against the Soviet state”. This work of identifying ‘’class enemies’’ along with their denunciation and disappearance was a daily affair. Noone was safe from it, including the highest party members.
Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot (Who killed one third of Cambodians in less than four years) shockingly don’t even appear into public discourse unless reminded.
This is what happens when a group controls the narrative of academia and journalism. It whitewashes the crimes of its co ideologists, no matter how big they are, to such an extent that no one remembers them anymore, unless one makes an effort not to.
The group being referred to here is Communists.
Does this sound like an exaggeration? Everyone will be quick to point out that communism ended in most of the world during 1989-1991. While it’s true, Communism is not dead. It’s a shape shifting monster, and its version 2.0 is liberalism progressivism. And the word progressive does not mean someone who believes in reform. It means a group which is progressing towards its pre-decided target by any means.
In India too, communists have the academia and media under their control and have used it effectively to subvert both the educated and uneducated people. That is why you will find thousands and thousands of discussions on 2002 Gujarat riots but hardly anything on the over 55000 people killed by the CPI rule during 1977-2011.
There will be nationwide crying on Dadri and Pehlu Khan but Nandigram massacre where an untold number of farmers were killed by CPIM cadre is forgotten. Fake stories of some Kausar Bi rape during Gujarat riots will be circulated, but the 1990 gruesome rape of Anita Dewan by CPIM goons, which matches the brutality of Nirbhaya rape by every measure is not even a footnote in the media. These are just a few examples.
This exercise of leftist subversion of India has been going even before its independence. Communist Party of India was founded in Tashkent on 17th Oct 1920. The Indian communists weren’t immune to the diktats of the comintern. Two of the prominent members, Birendranath Chattopadhyay and Abani Mukherji (who was one of the founders) were executed in 1937 as a part of the great purge by Stalin. Its main founder M N Roy narrowly escaped a similar fate and would in later years abandon Marxism. CPI was badly organized during 1920s and 1930s and organized many movements to gain political ground in India ,among trade unions and student institutions and to bring international revolution in India by throwing out the British. But it turned pro British the instant Soviet Union allied itself with Britain and United States in the second world war! The comrades went overboard in trying to prove its loyalty to the British by offering its services to His Majesty’s Government in India in support of its efforts to neutralize the reactionaries, ie the Congress and the armed revolutionaries, whom they called “treacherous agents of Fascist imperialists”! When time came, they supported the demand for Pakistan. That’s is why left communist publications keep on screaming how people like Vinayak Savarkar were British agents and how RSS/Hindu Mahasabha had no contribution in the freedom struggle. It is to hide their own collaborationist past with the British empire, when the CPI politburo acted like trained apes to dance to the tunes of their British masters, assuring them that the cadre worked effortlessly to increase his majesty’s hold on the Indian people.
Jawaharlal Nehru and his followers led the left takeover of the Indian National Congress, and made India into a socialist, left leaning country (as a necessary protection from colonial capitalism) for which it is still suffering. The Congress found it to its political advantage to encourage leftist rule over India’s academia and media as an aid for it to divide and rule Indian society. The creation of JNU by Indira Gandhi in 1969 was a huge step in this direction. It today remains a hotbed of subversive activity in India, funded by taxpayer money, comprising of ‘’students” old enough to be fathers of college going students, in a large number of cases. It has done its fair share in exporting the revolution by having the entire leadership of Nepal Maoists being its alumni. Both of the largest educational boards in India CBSE and ICSE, continue to have their curriculum made by left leaning academics.
In the words of Dr David Frawley: –
Marxist intellectuals follow a materialistic view of the world, with political power as the supreme goal, and propaganda, violence and class/caste warfare as the legitimate means to achieve it. Subverting history for political ends has been their hallmark of instruction. Marxists reject the exploration of higher consciousness as a mere distraction or deception.
In spite of criticizing “imperialism”, the worldview of Indian communists is Eurocentric and vehemently belittles and denies eastern traditions. The communists in India have been following what communist parties elsewhere have followed: – doing everything possible to weaken the nation by means so that the given order collapses and they can fill the void. Spreading destruction, terror and chaos and then emerging as heroes to save the shocked public from the mayhem they themselves have created. Communists always use the minorities against majority to weaken the latter, and usurp power. After gaining power, the minorities which have been promised ‘freedom’ are brutally put down. The biggest example is the Bolshevik takeover of Russia, which is called as Russian revolution in romanticized language.
“You must understand. The leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. The October Revolution was not what you call in America the “Russian Revolution.” It was an invasion and conquest over the Russian people. More of my countrymen suffered horrific crimes at their bloodstained hands than any people or nation ever suffered in the entirety of human history. It cannot be understated. Bolshevism was the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant of this reality is proof that the global media itself is in the hands of the perpetrators.”
– Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Communists are rabid in their targeting of a country’s majority. The group communists/leftists hate as a majority in one country can be backed by them if it is a minority in another for their goals.
E.g.: The left, which has denigrated every symbol of Christianity in the west, becomes the ‘saviour’ of Christians in India. Feminists will cry oppression at the drop of a hat, but none of them will ever speak about horrible condition of women under sharia. Simply because the global left sees jihad as an ‘icebreaker’ to wreck the world, on its ruins it will rule (Just like Stalin saw Hitler as an icebreaker to destroy the west in a global war so that a ruined Europe could be entirely brought under Bolshevism, till 1941 when the tables turned)
For all talk about Non alignment and finding pride in the banquet of beggars called NAM, it remains a fact that for much of its time under Gandhi Nehru regime, India was a Soviet satellite state. In the words of KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov in his 1983 interview, who had been in the India desk, and was appalled by the way KGB was ruining the country:-
“When I started working for the Soviet embassy in India, to my horror I discovered that we are millions [of] times more oppressive than any colonial or imperialist power in the history of mankind, that my country brings to India not freedom, progress, and friendship between the nations, but racism, exploitation, and slavery, and of course economical inefficiency to this country. Since I fell in love with India, I developed something which by KGB standards is [an] extremely dangerous thing. It’s called ‘split loyalty’: when an agent likes a country of assignment more than his own country. I literally fell in love with this beautiful country, a country of great contrasts, but also great humility, great tolerance and philosophical and intellectual freedoms. My ancestors used to live in caves and eat raw meat when India was [a] highly civilized nation, six thousand years ago. So obviously the choice was not to the advantage of my own nation. I decided to defect, and to entirely disassociate myself from the brutal regime.”
“If we can effectively kill the national pride and patriotism of just one generation, we will have won that country. Therefore we must continue propaganda abroad to undermine the loyalty of citizens in general and of teenagers in particular.”
The takeover of a country by the left involves four stages: –
- Demoralization- This is done by educating/conditioning one generation of students, filling them with self hatred, making them sympathetic with the enemy’s ideology, denigrating their own history , glorifying the attackers , and taking all care that a counter narrative (in this case, nationalism) is never given a chance.
- Destabilization- This takes a shortertime than demoralizing, because the generation which has been conditioned by left leaning ideology now become the policymakers in the fields like economy, foreign relations, defence, media, academia etc, and began altering it according to the political beliefs created by the conditioning. We cant deny the strong effects of Marxist Leninist education on the bureaucracy that handles these fields.
- Crisis- In this stage, the communists start hammering when they see that the iron is hot. Supporting the enemies of the country, weakening the institutions of the country like judiciary, polity, armed forces via propaganda or via infiltration. Insurgencies in various part of the country erupt, economy is paralysed by engineered mass agitations, the entire state machinery is brought to a standstill. In short, it is a violent change of power, structure, and economy of the country.
- Normalization- This is a cynical expression borrowed from Soviet propaganda, which refers to consolidation and cementing of the new regime after the overturning of the existing power structure. This can last indefinitely.
We are right now being subjected to both demoralization and destabilization via media and academia. We have news traders spreading false stories, showing victims as perpetrators and perpetrators as victims, intelligentsia who are writing false narrative, spreading discord in the country funded by external resources and demeaning India in every given international forum.
So how did this happen? Who allowed it?
It’s the sane public in the free, democratic world who allowed this to happen.
By simply ignoring these fields as useless and unemployable. The same right wingers who now lament about sold media and distortion of history never cared about joining these fields. They saw them as downmarket, to be joined by someone who cant get admission in ‘real’ educational fields. This happened everywhere around the world. It is them because of whom journalists are reduced to touts who make terrorists heroes or feminazis whose only talent is finding oppression, patriarchy and sexism in everything under the sun. It is because of them that performing arts is reduced to being outlets to shove perversions down the public’s throat.
Fields like academia and media are not as glamorous or well paying from the start as investment banking or engineering, but these are precisely the disciplines that shape public consciousness and opinion. And these are the fields that the left has grabbed and now dominates it. And it will be a long time before they are dislodged from it.
The leftists, ever so eager to spread their influence in any nook they could find, never had it so good. They had already become the dominant force in trade unions. They grabbed this opportunity with both hands, and in a matter of less than three decades, they controlled the narrative of the both the past and present. They made it sure that both mass media, cultural & entertainment arts are full of their sympathisers. Communism always puts the actors, poets, artists, writers, singers on a high pedestal because they are a very useful tool to spread their agenda, weaken the society by promoting “Cultural Marxism” like sexual immorality, LGBT glorification, drug abuse, anarchism, crime glorification. Over the time, it has the desired effect which can be seen everywhere.
And today, the left leaning media awards its footsoldiers very handsomely, more than any engineer, investment banker or CEO can ever hope to. The “eminent” historians, writers and economists live a life of luxury, get their books published from top authors , travel the world and anything they write is taken as the ultimate truth. Anyone not subscribing to the left progressive ideology in performing arts, entertainment & mass media stares at a life of unemployment and defamation.
Even today, these subversive elements are not taken seriously, and that is the power of narrative which they control. And no one still seems to realise the damage they can do. A few dozen left leaning professors in the 1960s and 70s were enough to bring about permanent change in the campuses of prestigious institutes in the west and the students that came out of them. A few thousand Bolshevik cadre that enlisted in the Imperial Russian Army during WW I were monumental in sowing discord in the already underequipped force which was already rife with mutinies and desertions. In India, a few dozen “eminent” historians who promoted bogus theories like Aryan invasion theory and fake caste narrative have a huge role to play in strengthening racist Dravidian politics and caste conflicts.
How long will we allow this to happen? How long will we take our freedom for granted?
