Left wing politically correct document leaked to the Daily Bale by a left wing informant and whistle blower.
Shocking and truly Evil.
Our informant informs on the evil of the U.K Anti Fascists for the Daily Bale and he is a regular informant to us about the left wing politically correct conspiracy and their evil activities.
He is currently deeply undercover in various left wing Anti Fascist groups in the U.K
British Anti Fascists writing on Socialism and Religion.
Committee of Anti Fascists United Kingdom.
Representing all U.K Anti Fascist Organisations as unified independent body.
“We true left wingers and Labour supporters in the U.K must agree with the idealism of Marxism that
Religion is opium for the people. Religion is a sort of spiritual booze, in which the slaves of capital drown their human image, their demand for a life more or less worthy of man”
As far as Lenin was concerned, it was quite understandable why the oppressed turn to religion:
“Impotence of the exploited classes in their struggle against the exploiters .. inevitably gives rise to the belief in a better life after death ”
We politically correct left wingers must work to remove Religion in the U.K and turn all people to the true worship of left wing political correctness – and thus we will then control the masses completely.
We must install political correctness in all institutions and gain control of the People’s minds from within their own institutions and organisations.
That way they will conform so much easier if they think they are carrying out a ‘moral’ obligation and they believe that they are ‘good’ people for being ‘politically correct’.
It seemed equally clear to Lenin why the capitalists turned to religion: [They]
“are taught by religion to practise charity while on earth, thus offering them a very cheap way of justifying their entire existence as exploiters and selling them at a moderate price tickets to well-being in heaven.”
Like Engels and Marx, Lenin believed that religion was an historical phenomenon, tied to the oppressive structures of human history such as feudalism and capitalism.
Just as they believed that the state, as we know it today, would no longer be needed and would
after the world had turned completely to socialism, so too they believed that religion would wither away when there was no longer a need for it. In Lenin’s words,
“the yoke of religion that weighs upon mankind is merely a product and reflection of the economic yoke within society.”
Lenin cites Marx and Engels that due to the fact that religion has deep roots in capitalist oppression, it will not disappear until the people completely overcome their oppression: He writes in The Attitude of the Workers’ Party to Religion that –
“No educational book can eradicate religion from the minds of masses who are crushed by capitalist hard labour, and who are at the mercy or the blind destructive forces of capitalism, until those masses themselves learn to fight this root of religion, fight the rule of capital in all its forms, in a united, organised, planned and conscious way.”
Marx, Engels and Lenin all agreed that there should be complete separation of church and state and that the state should never make laws about religious belief, either to support one religion or to ban another.
All three were opposed to arguments that religion should be banned under socialism. Lenin agreed with Engels when he wrote in The Attitude of the Workers’ Party to Religion:
“Engels frequently condemned the efforts of people who desired to be “more left” or “more revolutionary” than the Social-Democrats to introduce into the programme of the workers’ party an explicit proclamation of atheism, in the sense of declaring war on religion.
Commenting in 1874 on the famous manifesto of the Blanquist fugitive Communards who were living in exile in London, Engels called their vociferous proclamation of war on religion a piece of stupidity, and stated that such a declaration of war was the best way to revive interest in religion and to prevent it from really dying out.”
While some socialists wanted to exclude workers who were religious from the revolutionary party, Lenin believed they should be welcomed without prejudice:
“We must not only admit workers who preserve their belief in God into the Social-Democratic Party, but must deliberately set out to recruit them; we are absolutely opposed to giving the slightest offense to their religious convictions, but we recruit them in order to educate them in the spirit of our programme, and not in order to permit an active struggle against it.”
In fact, Lenin was not even opposed to recruiting priests into the revolutionary party. For example, he defended the revolutionary priest Father Gapon against those who claimed he was an agent.
A more sympathetic view of religion and revolution is expressed by Fidel Castro. Fidel’s respect for religion is echoed by Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi whose messages of nonviolence open a new way to revolutionary change.
Although the dialogue of religion and revolution continues as we enter the 21st Century, the contradictions seem to be increasing at the same time since the capitalist culture of war is more and more cloaked in the robes of fundamentalist Christian, Jewish and Muslim religious crusades.
It is very clear that we in the U.K as unified left wing Anti Fascists, in the name of true political correctness, must work together to remove and discourage any and all Religion.
