The Finnish Bolshevik explains how social democracy (SD) actually works in what is supposed to be its best showcases. SD does not and never tries to replace capitalism, so the capitalist system’s ills continue unabated. Hence under SD we see unemployment

David Pakman is a liberal who claims that Marxism-Leninism is a failure and has nothing in common with socialism, while utopian socialism, anarchism and “democratic socialism” are fantastic successes. As his evidence he says “Orwell said so”. However, Pakman is not a supporter of any kind of socialism, he merely advocates for those things to steer people away from Marxism.

Let’s talk fundamentals: Why the EU is an imperialist capitalist entity, and the need for democratic centralism
There’s still a lot of confusion (much of it abetted by the capitalist world itself) about the true nature of the European Union (EU). In this post, The Finnish Bolshevik tackles that subject, while also re-examining the phenomenon of imperialism, in general, and the whys and wherefores of democratic centralism and key aspects of vanguardism.

J V STALIN—”The times have passed when leaders were regarded as the only makers of history, while the workers and peasants were not taken into account. The destinies of nations and of states are now determined, not only by leaders, but primarily and mainly by the vast masses of the working people. The workers and the peasants, who without fuss and noise are building factories and mills, constructing mines and railways, building collective farms and state farms, creating all the values of life, feeding and clothing the whole world they are the real heroes and the creators of the new life.” (J.V. Stalin, Speech Delivered at the First All-Union Congress of Collective Farm Shock Brigadiers)”

When it comes to US liberals, Jimmy Dore is the best of the lot—by far—says The Finnish Bolshevik, and we agree. Although Jimmy is still traveling left and is not yet what we might call a “formulated Marxist”, his intelligence, personal integrity and decency propel him to seek and finds real solution to the world’s problems. We only hope that Jimmy will avoid the pitfalls of social democracy, the somewhat misleading influence of people he may at this point admire, and finally escape completely from the clutches of liberalism. Here’s The Finnish Bolsehvik’s enlightening evaluation.
