Dear comrades of the CPDA,

While not strictly Fascist, National Bolshevism has it's roots in some of the philosophical movements of Great War Germany, specifically the writings of Ernst Niekisch and Ernst Jünger. It would later be inspired and partially embodied by the 1930s National Socialist Combat Movement headed by Nazis Hermann Ehrhardt, Otto Strasser, and Walther Stennes.

While this movement remained under high ridicule during Lenin's government, during the Stalin period some members of the National Bolshevist movement were allowed breathing room, such as B.D. Grekov's National Bolshevik school of historiography and the Smenovekhovtsi. Of course, National Bolshevism is but one form of the so-called "right wing" of Socialist thought. As noted above, other proponents of such "Conservative Socialism" included many Nazis, Fascists, and ultra Nationalists. In Russia, some even sought the restoration of the monarchy during the Civil War.

The National Bolshevik Party still exists within the Russian Federation today, taking stands against the government of Mr. Putin. During the trial of despised Serbian war criminal Ratko Mladić, the NBP attacked the Serbian Embassy in Moscow to demonstrate their solidarity with Mladić. The modern concepts of the NBP are largely Eurasianist in nature, seeking to create a Greater Russia out of Asian territories lost with the collapse of the USSR and the unification of Belarus with Russia. The retaking of Crimea is also in line with National Bolshevist ideals. While not in agreement with Putin's own visions of a Eurasian Union, it is still another form of empire, with many romanticizing the days of the Romanovs and the Czarist Empire.

Suffice it to say, such philosophies as National Bolshevism are in stark contradiction to Marxist thought and threaten the true internationalist spirit of Communism. As the National Bolshevist movement has it's roots with the Fascist and Nazi movements of Italy and Germany, it is an inherently dangerous form of politic. As is well known, many comrades perished at the hands of Fascists before and during the Second World War. Not just in the military action, but through the persecution of the SS, Gestapo, and other hated Fascist organizations of terror.

Admiration or support of Fascist, Nazi, or National Bolshevist tendencies is not tolerated by the CPDA, as such tendencies are the enemy of all working peoples. In our steadfast support of the ANTIFA (Anti-Fascist) cause, it is in our best interests to discuss methods against Fascist tendencies, whether it be in regards to supposed comrades or practical methods in our daily lives. Any CPDA members found to hold such views will face expulsion after proper review.

In solidarity,

The problem is why would management and labor need to form a guild if they each have their own plot of land. They would be too busy working their own plot for their to be any organization, any management or additional labor. the only case that would make sense is if they were capable of merging land collectively, but then being managed, which leads to the creation of the classes in the first place. 

Second issue is how is this going to be implemented? even if you get people to support the idea you are going to have a hard time getting the Capitalists to support. Their entire system is based on them having ownership of production, so a distributist system is not going to work for them. They Struggled for years to ensure that they dominate over the workers, ensuring Unions and other worker organizations do not succeed. Most of the Time they do so with the support of the government. So your choice is limited, like ours, to revolution. But if you succeed, how will the system be defended? How will you prevent land from being merged through consent, and then dominated after the fact? 

lastly its an idea that is purely academic and doesn't have a basis of support amongst the people. Its odd, its complicated and its a bit unnatural. Even socialism and Communism makes more sense to people, even if they disagree with how it was implemented.

So I will use the common critique of Communism (which i disagree with) on Distributism. "Sounds good on paper, but won't work in real life"

Well if the economy is "distributed" then there is no real need for a union or guild anyways and that is kind of the ideal.
For the second question, I view distributism as not an end but means to a better end. elements of Distributism can be implemented. and have been such as anti trust laws. As for destroying the capitalist system, revolution might work but, I would prefer to implement distributism peacefully, i suppose If one could gain political control of a state and could break the power of special interests you could just pass the required legislation such as outlawing corporate mergers, breaking up massive corporations and such. And i think it would be very popular among the people as it would actually see the people have control lover the economy not big business or the government.

In other words, see Christian Communism...
Reply
:iconfranziivonosterreich:
No, not really i suppose its a sort of socialism minus Marxist ideology. Because it doesn't focus on class struggle and overthrowing the bourgeoisie, its more about an economy based on Christian morality. As in, treat others like you want to be treated don;t exploit each other, give to others. Also , Distributism is very family oriented whereas the family not the individual is the basic societal unit. And I know you leftists just hate  traditional families.

Leftist do not hate traditional families. On the other hand you Christians do HATE "non-traditional" families despite that Christ himself condemned hate and bigotry.

Besides... Christian morality is more prudish and hypocrite than any other form of morality, an economy based on that wouldn't be better than economy in the Middle Ages in my opinion.

Not really, even christian communists don't support private property. Like he said this is an answer against capitalist and Communism, to make a position that will return people to the Catholic faith, instead of to liberal governments or to labour organizations

How so, if you don't mind my asking? Is it not possible to keep one's politics and one's entertainments apart from one another? What of the comrades who have enjoyed openly any range of television show, video game, et. all in the common popular culture? Do they too not risk such a "grievance", or is it merely those who defy the gender stereotypes of Capitalist society? Frankly, the rejection of comrades who may also be part of the Brony fandom is, to put it bluntly, a tad ironic when one considers the egalitarian aims of Communism. Or is Communism against such things as gender equality, the breaking of traditional norms, the dissolution of prejudices of sex-gender-race-etc? Last time I checked, Communism is for each one of those things and more.

Oh really now? I've been taken plenty seriously by many. Just ask those who have, time and again, voted me to be CPDA General Secretary. Just ask those who have actually had serious political conversation with me. Just ask any who have said my conclusions on what is to be done with the bourgeoisie have frightened them. Or the many more who have argued with me, outright argued with me, about just how very wrong my politic is, and how I have no rational or objective thinking in my head. As for "giving Communism a bad name", where have you been for the past century? Communism has largely had a "bad name" with the majority of non-Communists since Stalin. Compared to the Great Purge, the enjoyment of ponies is rather trivial in the "bad name" department, wouldn't you think?

But why should I bother to change your opinion anyway? You are, after all, who you are. You will think as you please, regardless of what anyone may say. Such is are the wonders of free thought and expression.

I'm curious, in you people's opinion, has any Communist country to date actually succeeded at the ideals of Communism?

Not really. Although Marx's "End of Human History" form of Communism cannot be achieved by any one nation or society, really. It would only be possible on the global scale.

That being said, some truly good examples of Socialist stage society by past/present countries:

RSFSR and USSR from 1917-1928 and to decreasingly lesser extents afterwards
SFR Yugoslavia from 1948-1980
Republic of Cuba from 1959-Present

Not that Cuba is Socialism perfected by any means, but it is the only one of the three examples still standing...

This is not to say that the other countries that were/are Communist Party-led don't have good qualities, but they are increasingly illegitimate to varying degrees, and thus are reversing even Socialism. As such, they will never have a prayer of creating any semblance of "Communism" for their peoples...

The Soviets in the prescribed period murdered many innocents simply for being on noble birth.
The Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia utilized dishonest means to take control, silencing opposition newspapers and critics.
Admittedly the Republic of Cuba is something I can't poke holes into. Though by most standards Castro's maintaining of power is rather questionable.

Noble born tended to have sided with the Whites during the Civil War, or at the very least put up very real resistance to the Socialist reforms of the time.

No more dishonest than other, "pro-Western" regimes acted in other parts of the world.

Does this absolve either government? Hardly, although examination of the social conditions of the respective times does give answer to why such things were. In the former Czarist Empire, many had no love of their (not so removed) masters, and certainly the other victorious Allies of WWII went to less than honest measures to keep Communists FROM power in both Italy and France, thus demonstrating such practices were hardly atypical...
