Farewell to Socialism!!

Recently a friend of mine sent me a joke “I told you not to laugh!!!!!”

The joke was something like the below paragraph but in the place of Bangladesh, She added India perhaps its obvious!!

“In the U.S. they invented a machine that catches thieves; they took it out to different countries for a test. In the U.S.A, in 30 minutes, it caught 20 thieves; in the UK, in 30 minutes it caught 50 thieves; Spain, in 30 minutes it caught 65 thieves; Ghana, in 30 minutes it caught 600 thieves; Bangladesh, in 15 minutes the machine was stolen.

Farewell to Socialism!!

The communist politician Mr.Sitaram Yechury compliant about the present pace of development of capitalism and its not new, it is also known that they have lost their face long back and now they are just hanging on somebody’s tail!

He writes:

  • “This is necessary for the advanced capitalist powers to seek to prevent the growth of socialist ideas and Left politics, as currently seen in various countries of Latin America, in the wake of the worst capitalist economic recession since the Great Depression.
  • Today, the US has an unprecedented seven million people unemployed. The European Union is faring no better. Under these circumstances, it is imperative for them to decry the glorious role of the Soviet Union and, by implication any socialist alternative, in the defeat of fascism.
  • Truth is sacrificed at capitalism’s altar to prevent the Left’s advance.

What is truth in socialism at least in Indian socialism? That was “sacrificed at capitalism’s altar to prevent the Left’s advance”. I do not know may be the forty years being poor was may be biggest truth in Indian History! And now are also witnessing how many are actually poor in our day to day life!!

If anyone read CPI (M) Election Manifesto for the 15th General Election of India, know much better what was “sacrificed” and for whom?

I told you not to laugh!!
