Nepali Maoists: Internet Will Help Scrutiny of Revolutionary State

Posted by artemi0 on March 23, 2010

The following appeared prominently on a new website created by the  Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist).

People should have easy access to information and their right to information should always be protected.”

Twenty first century is the century of information revolution. Globalization of information, thanks to the internet technology, has reduced the entire globe into a small rural unit. And, due to this, any positive or negative development in any corner of the earth can have its impact on the whole world in the blink of an eye.

The time we are living in is–as Lenin pointed out– the era of imperialism and proletarian revolution. But, because of internet technology and the globalization, some features of imperialism—its mode of hegemony—are not, needless to say, the same as they were in the 19th century.

It’s obvious and logical consequence is that this very change can have a generous say upon the characteristic of contemporary proletarian revolution, into which the historical document of our party’s second national conference ‘Great Leap Forward : The Inevitable necessity of history’ delves lucidly.

What can be the role of media in the establishment, defense and development of People’s Democracy?

How the media can be one of the weapons of people’s scrutiny and control upon the state in the system of democracy in the 21st century?

These questions, by the way, demand more time and effort to be answered.

We’ve launched hoping that the website would provide easy access to the information about our party, Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) and our movement to all. Our party believes in no ‘conspiracy theory’ but mass line. ‘From the people, to the people’ is the basic premise of Maoist mass line. People should have easy access to information and their right to information should always be protected. And, is an attempt in this direction from our side. The feedbacks, critiques and comments from our readers and viewers are always the most precious asset for us and our party.

    ‘Conspiracy’ which has historical roots, has become the hallmark of the era.
    Wasn’t the fall of the Soviet union, though attributable to revisionism in the broad sense, the result of numerous conspiracies?
    Did conspiracy not have any role in usurping power from Mao, in China?
    Isn’t the numerous wars fought by mankind, though the culmination of several natural processes finally sparked up by conspiracies
    and is it not war strategy, the result of a conspiracy?
    Isn’t the very essence of work of intelligence agencies conspiratorial?
    Mind control of the masses through various means- ranging from television and telecommunication channels, coercive and persuasive means employed, leave alone scientific possibilities of electronic and electromagnetic means conspiratorial?
    Wasn’t the psychological means of warfare employed in the Gulf war in Iraq a conspiracy?
    To sum up, parties which work for the emancipation of mankind do have mass line but it does not, to any extend undermine the historical importance of the so called ‘conspiracies’.
