Official Anthem of the CPDA: The Internationale


Fulfilling the CPDA's One Year Plan. Details are provided here:…
Dear comrades of the CPDA,

Nationalism has, over the past few decades, experienced a resurgence likely not seen since the 1960s. All across the world, Nationalist and ultra-Conservative groups have gained popularity and momentum. In light of recent events surrounding mass migrations of asylum seekers and refugees from Africa and the Middle East, not to mention the high profile terrorist attacks, many Nationalist factions feel vindicated in their cries for "Foreigners out!" or "Guard the borders".

In America, many Republicans have taken up the call to limit or even expel many foreign peoples from nation, in the name of safety and security for the homeland. The Russian Federation has, over the past decade, seen a rampant wave of Nationalist sentiment in the name of restoring greatness. In many parts of the Eurozone, the economic crisis and austerity have encouraged Nationalist groups to denounce the Union and it's supposed homogenization of the European nations. Many countries of the former Soviet bloc have elected Conservative, Nationalist governments with the aims of protecting their cultures and keeping their populace "pure" of outsiders. Islamophobe Nationalists have demanded that all Muslim peoples be expelled from the "Christian" nations. In the Middle East and Africa, we see the opposite. Arab Nationalism has long been the driving force of Middle Eastern politics ever since the end of the Ottoman Empire. While radical Islamic fundamentalism has become a threat to the old Nationalism, many Arab and African nations have kept to the line of reactionary policy in the name of defending their National identities. Egypt alone demonstrates the capacity of Nationalist forces to unseat an elected government. Granted, the nature of that elected government may be equally questionable, but it is a familiar precedent in the developing world none-the-less.

It was Nationalism that played a part in destroying Yugoslavia. It was Nationalism that also unhinged much of the USSR. In China and North Korea, Nationalism has been embraced fiercely as a means of rallying support behind the government. Given China's history of colonial exploitation, this is hardly surprising. Given North Korea's position over the past century, it is equally unsurprising. Momentum for Nationalist and Imperial-leaning factions has increased in Japan as well, where Abe's government has seen increasing support for some policies aimed at restoring the glory of the Emperor and the pre-1945 Japanese order.

In South America, Nationalist groups representing the bourgeois populace have been fomenting challenges to Leftist governments and Parties for decades. This has been, arguably, most acute in Venezuela where Maduro's government has come increasingly under attack after the death of Chavez. Similar challenges to Morales of Colombia have been centered around the wealthy classes.

In Spain, Scotland, and Canada, there have been separatist movements backed largely by Nationalist sentiments, most prominently demonstrated in the Scottish Referendum of the past year.

As Marxists, we all know that the one of the guiding forces of our movement is international solidarity, the uniting of the working classes of all nations against Capitalist exploitation. In many cases throughout the 20th Century, Communists the world over fought hard and long against Nationalist factions. Sadly, in some cases, our own movement abandoned internationalist sentiment in favor of Nationalist messages. While there is argument that such messages were of a temporary and tactical nature, once established, these messages never really have been undone.

Likewise, Communists have over the years supported independence movements in many nations, the aims and goals of which to free the peoples from their colonial masters. While in doing so, most revolutions were characterized by Nationalist sentiments as part of that anti-colonial spirit. Naturally, this puts the Communist movement's history at odds with some of it's ideals.

As Communists, how do we deem our own history of Nationalist support? How do we seek to continue combating ultra-Nationalism and the chauvinism that stems from it? Is there ever a time when we are justified in supporting Nationalism of one kind while opposing another? Has the rise in Nationalist tendencies over the past decades been a refutation of Leftist politic by the people? Or has the tide of Nationalism signified the coming of a new era of fringe political groups, Fascists key among them, once more gaining support through fear and anger over the actions of equally radical forces elsewhere in the world?

In solidarity,

CPDA General Secretary

Because when it all comes down to it, we are all equally human. 
It is only when we start putting labels on ourselves and using them where things get messy. Sure, we are different, but aren't we all still human? An external label does not matter. Rather, we are to judge on what a person does, contributes and their character.

To quote an old song by Sting:

"We share the same biology, regardless of ideology..."

Basically, you are putting forward the idea that we are to judge others on their individual merit as human beings. In the Marxist perspective, there is a place for individual traits, yes. But it is the sum of these traits, the sum of mankind itself, that we focus on. The application and integration of the individual to the collective good, and the interactions between individuals for the collective whole. To reference your Putin quote, it is dangerous to to encourage individual exceptionilism no matter how well the intentions.

Not that I'd say I'm a great admirer of Mr. Putin, frankly.

I think he has the right idea, just scrap the anti-gay laws. 
As I have said, we are human. This is regardless of any label we give ourselves. And that includes who we love, as long as it within limits (pedophilia is fucked up, no doubt). 
Yes, I find myself at home with you all. Admirers of equality and rebels against corruption. We are equally human, regardless of the label, as long as it doesn't directly harm another. 
Yes, even as a man who gravitates to men (of age, of course), I still have quite a bit of respect for the guy. He gives us a good lesson in humility. Often what I see so many around me fail to have. 
I am blind to class, I don't see anyone as higher than another. Wealth does not make you more powerful, rather, I see it as a source of corruption. As well as this, I see greed as the largest sin in humanity. As soon as one sees himself more deserving, more entitled or more valued than another, he becomes corrupted. This is where the beauty of communism steps in, making people people, reminding one another that they too are human and were born in the same way. 
Needless to say, I love communism and its ultimate goal- equality. Regardless of status or label. we are all equally human.

Daniel Lichter, sociology professor at Cornell University.
"Mixed-race children have blurred America’s color line. They often interact with others on either side of the racial divide and frequently serve as brokers between friends and family members of different racial backgrounds, but America still has a long way to go.”

Wesley Clark, U.S. general, ex-NATO Supreme Commander, talking about the NATO bombing of Serbia, 1999.
“Let’s not forget what the origin of the problem is. There is no place in modern Europe for ethnically pure states. That’s a 19th century idea and we are trying to transition into the 21st century, and we are going to do it with multi-ethnic states.”

Peter Sutherland, EU Commissioner and head of the World Trade Organization.
“We still nurse a sense of our homogeneity and difference from others, and that’s precisely what the European Union, in my view, should be doing its best to undermine.”

Yigal Ben-Nun, Israeli Writer.
"Arab migration has been the best thing that’s happened to Europe in the past 50 years. Arabs in Europe are a fact of life. It’s time we started to accept that there’s no way to block the migration of Chinese, Pakistanis or Arabs to Europe. … It’s true, Europe won’t be what it once was, but that’s a good thing. … [The] more migrants from Africa and Asia who arrive, the better off Europe will be. Sooner or later, their children and grandchildren will marry into veteran European families and change the demographics of their countries. Europe will be different.”

Barbara Spectre, US Born actress.
“Europe has not yet learned how to be multicultural, and I think we’re going to be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. […] Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies that they once were in the last century […] It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode…”

Mona Sahlin, Party Leader of the Social Democrats.
“The White Majority is the Problem”
“The Swedes must be integrated into the new Sweden , the old Sweden will not return.”

Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, military ruler of Libya.
"Europe runs the risk of turning black from illegal immigration, it could turn into Africa.
We need support from the European Union to stop this army trying to get across from Libya, which is their entry point.
At the moment there is a dangerous level of immigration from Africa into Europe and we don’t know what will happen.
What will be the reaction of the white Christian Europeans to this mass of hungry, uneducated Africans?
We don’t know if Europe will remain an advanced and cohesive continent or if it will be destroyed by this barbarian invasion. We have to imagine that this could happen but before it does we need to work together.”

Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

...not entirely sure what point you are trying to make here, aside from vague protest to multi-cultural societies...

`Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.`
