Communism Or Nationalism?
By the Revolutionary Communist Organization (OCR), Mexico,Demarcations-Journal.org, Issue 4, Winter 2015
Join the discussion! This polemic draws out the nationalism that runs through attacks on a critical component of the new synthesis of communism that Bob Avakian (BA) has developed: internationalism. BA has not only upheld but also deepened the understanding of proletarian internationalism. More specifically, he has profoundly conceptualized the relationship between the world arena and revolution in any single country, and the tasks of communists in both the imperialist countries and oppressed nations.
The OCR of Mexico raises several key questions in their polemic:
"The achievement of [the necessary conditions for communism] must take place on a world scale, through a long and tortuous process of revolutionary transformation in which there will be uneven development, the seizure of power in different countries at different times, and a complex dialectical interplay between the revolutionary struggles and the revolutionization of society in these different countries...[a dialectical relation] in which the world arena is fundamentally and ultimately decisive while the mutually interacting and mutually supporting struggles of the proletarians in different countries constitute the key link in fundamentally changing the world as a whole."
