I'm in facebook jail not allowed to make any posts so I'll leave this here “Socialism and nationalism are mutually exclusive. The revolutionary task of expropriating the wealth of the rich and placing the world’s productive forces at the disposal of the working class can be completed only by abolishing borders and bringing the world’s political map into harmony with the international character of the process of production.
Under socialism, the working class will have both the material resources and the legal right to travel anywhere in the world free from harassment, detention or deportation. It is necessary to unite workers of all races and nationalities in a common international struggle for socialist revolution.”
To be fair, Trotsky said it first, but Uncle Joe saw Imperialist interference and an attempt to reintroduce Capitalism into the Soviet Union together with the removal of an autocratic totalitarian leadership.... Bollocks, I've spent enough time at college today writing about Stalinist communism and how true socialism cannot work, but liberal socialist policies similar to Barkarin's did. ReKulakisation I say!
It sounds like such a utopian vison to think of a world without borders, without national identity, without language barriers and cultural misunderstandings. To be an Earthling, rather than to identify with the country of our birth or the class status of our parents. Idealistic....how to put this into practice is an entirely different discussion.
