Eternal glory to the great teacher of the international proletariat – Karl Marx!
We commemorate the founder of communist ideology Karl Marx in 200th year of his birth. Long live Karl Marx!
Marx was as Lenin said: “Marx was the genius who continued and consummated the three main ideological currents of the 19th century, as represented by the three most advanced countries of mankind: classical German philosophy, classical English political economy, and French socialism combined with French revolutionary doctrines in general.”
As a result of exploitation, oppression and the policy of war by the barbaric, capitalist-imperialist system the working class and the poor peoples of the world are subjected to misery, destruction and poverty. The continued competition of the imperialist enterprises and anarchy of production are triggers of the crisis. The capital sparks wars in the struggle for markets in which they murder, force in even deeper poverty and force to flee millions of oppressed. Marxism says: “The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles.” (Manifesto of the Communist Party, 1847) and therefore found the key to the destruction of the power which leads the laws of this maze and this chaos. Namely he showed the theory of class struggle and opened this road!
Marx did not just show how liberation can be achieved. He also showed the international proletariat with his words “The weapon of criticism cannot, of course, replace criticism of the weapon, material force must be overthrown by material force; but theory also becomes a material force as soon as it has gripped the masses.”(Introduction to Critique of Hegels philosophy of right, 1844) that only the role of violence in history is mandatory and can change it.
Marxism is not just a theory. It is the directory of the proletariat in class struggle. It is a revolutionary weapon in the hands of the class conscious proletariat against all who want to deviate the revolutionary struggles for socialism and communism from their path, against all who want to poison the working class and the oppressed masses with their revisionist and opportunist thoughts and who oppose or cover up the revolutionary dictatorship of the proletariat, therefore against all pessimistic, “peaceful” and “class”compromising bourgeois currents. Marxism did not stay limited to the teachings of Marx. It has developed in class struggle of the proletariat and for the political power through the unique contributions of Lenin and Chairman Mao in to Marxism-Leninism-Maoism. If today one does not opine Maoism, one can not understand Marx and therefore it is impossible to lead the struggle for political power of the proletariat. We experience the excitement and honor to celebrate the 200th birthday of Karl Marx with a Marxist-Leninist and Maoist understanding and advance determinedly on the path of socialism and communism. The invincible teacher of the working class, the theoretical leader of communism ignited the struggle against the capitalist system with his work “The Capital”. He is alive in the struggle which is waged by the working class and the oppressed peoples for socialism and communism!
In his 65th year Karl Marx developed dozens of scientific works. First of all “The Capital”. The teachings of Karl Marx on his 200th birthday show the road of struggle in the struggle of humankind for a classless, borderless new world without exploitation.
We as the organization of the communists from Turkey and Turkey-Kurdistan. The Communist Party of Turkey/Marxist-Leninist consider Marxism-Leninism-Maoism the directory in our struggle for revolution, socialism and communism in Turkey.
“The Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communistic revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win. Proletarians of all countries, unite!” (Manifesto of the Communist Party, 1847)
Long live the teachings of Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Mao Zedong!
Long live the revolutionary dictatorship of the proletariat!
Long live Marxism-Leninism and Maoism!
Long live proletarian internationalism!
