IS Maoism back in fashion? Have we underestimated how this revolutionary idea is shaping the world?
It was in the mid-1970s that a Kerala-born Singaporean called Aravindan Balakrishnan, leader of the Workers’ Institute of Marxism-Leninism-Mao Zedong Thought in London, made a bold prediction. By the close of 1977, he said, the People’s Liberation Army of China would move swiftly to free the world: they would be in London and Washington before the imperialists there had even realised they were coming.
Wrong – or just thirty to forty years out?
Was his truth not the story uncovered by Freedom, a charity dedicated to helping women in forced marriages, of the women held captive for decades by a certain Maoist Comrade Bala, but the cultural revolution unleashed on the West by our very own woke elites, the brutality and speed of which is powerfully described by Spiked editor Brendan O’Neill here?
A video from ten years ago has recently resurfaced. It shows that Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder Patrisse Cullors, self-described as a ‘trained Marxist,’ is a fan of the Chinese communist dictator Mao Zedong, the tyrant responsible for the largest number of deaths in recorded history.
It’s unlikely that she is alone.
Isn’t high time we reminded the knee-bending yeah-sayers what this woke anti‑western agenda means for them – that it is potentially murderous and definitely anti-democratic?
Feel free to discuss this or anything else on your mind.
