The working class never took power in Russia.

So apparently "Power" is Russian for, "It up the ass from authoritarian communists."
Anarchists are liberal cynics
16 Nov 2005
The Russian socialist revolution of 1917 was humankind's greatest achievement.
oh come on people

"ltrotski (nospam) redarmy.mil.ru (unverified)"

DSNI does some great work, but they'd probably be pretty surprised to be described as anarchist...
Anarchism is petit-bourgeois, yo!
17 Nov 2005
The name's MC Trotsky and I know how to rock
All you anarcho-reformists can suck my c***
Workers raise your hammers if you love me
Peasants raise your sickles for Lev Trot-sky!

If you be in tha struggle I ain't gonna hate
But what you gonna do about the bourgeois state?
They gots the army, the po-pos, the courts, the jails
Makes your spontaneity fetish just fairy tales

You be frontin' revolution but it's just a phrase
Cause you be lucky to get a yourself law or a raise
And if workers powr be the objective
You be spittin mad McCarthyist invective

MC Trot says workers, build your party now
Read my homie JP Cannon he'll show you how
Ain't no poison in our power, got no original sin
Inevitably corruptin' the workers state from within

Now MC trot gonna splain to you why
The anarchist revolution never gonna storm the sky
There's a problem in they minds that keeps them down
It's the ideology of a petit-bourgeois clown

Capitalism be what the shop-keepa hates
'Cause "goin' out of business" is his eternal fate
But he hates workers power even more
'Cause the Soviet don't give a shit for his puny store

Proles gotta organize on a massive scale
State planning, not anarcho-charity must prevail
And in the final battle wit' da bourgeoisie
Only the vanguard holds together to set us free

Advanced proles gots mad respect for the MC Trot
Marx was right when he let Bakunin rot
So workers raise your hammers if you love me
Peasants raise your sickles for Lev Trot-sky!

WORD!

It is obvious the Mr. Trotsky is devoid of any facts whatsoever, all the Communist Revolution did for Russia was change the government from one authoritarian to another, except the Communist regime murdered some 33 million of its citizens.
Re: The Russian Revolution of 1917: How the Working Class Took Power
17 Nov 2005
yes, I guess that's much worse than massacring entire villages of indian americans or supporting dictators who do the dirty job of murdering people overseas. oh, we're just SOOOOO much better than the communists.

was that trotsky rhyme from '86?
Dude

MC Trot rocks the Hizzouse!
Spartacunts
17 Nov 2005
I recommends flyering the GSU with Spartacus Flyers again. The more the better. GUS is very strict about it and will close them down again.
Cult Watch!!
17 Nov 2005
Spartacus Youth Club is a cult, almost as bad as those poor LeRouche followers.
Anarchism is a cult
17 Nov 2005
Anarchism is a cult defined by unreasoning allegiance to vague slogans and verbal talismans like "horizontal", "authoritarian", and "direct action".

Anarchists flee from serious political debate because it hurts their thin-skinned petit-bourgeois constitutions to be losing all the time. They always beg off saying they have to go do some important "direct action" in the "streets" (like eating a sandwich at Au Bon Pain or something). They won't even stand and fight in the most forgiving of debating environments, hte Internet.

Yes, Anarchists are just liberal cynics.
Who is avoiding a debate?
17 Nov 2005
Last time I checked, there was a serious critique of State Communism put on this thread and all you Trots have done is evaded the critique by calling anarchists petit-bourgeois and calling our programs charity without backing your shit up. The reason that most folks don't debate with you anymore is because you have the same party line that you continue to mouth off with the same bullshit Old Left rhetoric most of which deals with name-calling, deliberate (or maybe ignorant) misrepresentation and evasion of the issues.

If you have a serious and rational critique, I haven't heard it because you continue to talk at people instead of with people.
Leninism Never Again!
17 Nov 2005
Comrade, talking at people is precisely what state communists do best. I'm sure you've seen the sparts little show they put on at anarchist functions regularly in this city. The practice comes directly from Lenin himself - its called an "intersection" - its when the mighty vanguard intersects with lesser struggles in order to inject vanguardist politics into the broader struggle. Ever notice how they always travel in pairs when doing this? Lenin suggested that as well.

In the modern times, Leninists engage in practices such as the pulling of fire alarms in order to disrupt political assemblies that are prepared to resist such "intersection". The practice not only creates powerful, unforgetting enemies - but also displays a lack of solidarity for the men and women of the fire department, and casts dark shadows of any so-called "working class solidarity" these bastards claim to possess.

State communism and vertical leadership have proven their tyranny with their Gulag, Stakhanovite quota system, and massacre at Kronstadt. It is truly amazing to me that some people have not learned from the mistakes of the past and continue to follow the failed and horrific policies of Leninism.

Leninism never again! All power to the people!
Yo, serious critique this, homiez
19 Nov 2005
Your serious critiques don't concern me none
Like retarded kids throwing ice-cubes at the sun
Everywhere communists are leading da masses
And anarchists are just sittin on their petit-bourgeois asses

Anarchism died in 1917, yall

Everywhere? Today? Is that why you name yourself after someone who's been dead for decades?
