US Imperialism: Aggressive Rhetoric, Declining Power
US President Trump’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly could be dismissed as madman’s rants but this mad man is the leader of the strongest power on the earth. It appeared that Trump was not addressing a gathering of diplomats from across the world but his domestic constituency – white supremacists, unemployed and of course big business. Despite the lunatic streak in his ravings, Trump has been intensifying attacks on third world countries to force them to submit to US dictates. Trump wants these countries to buy more from America while America closes its markets to them and it means more sales of armaments. However, Trump’s thrust is being checked by other sections of US establishment, in some respects toning down his war rhetoric and in other cases blunting the edge of his attempted rapprochement with Russia.

Further, it led to ideological, political and organizational parting of ways with revisionism and neo-revisionism and their parliamentary path. Naxalbari paved the way for the formation of Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) which adopted Marxism-Leninism-Mao Zedong Thought as the ideological guide, the programme of New Democratic Revolution and the path of Protracted People’s War. The cobwebs of parliamentarianism were cleared and the clarion call of Naxalbari rose above the din of parliamentary humdrum of revisionists and neo-revisionists.
Struggles of the peasants in Bengal (Tebhaga), Worli, Punappa Vyalar and Telengana, the latter an armed peasant struggle over a vast area, placed the Armed Agrarian Struggle on the agenda for the liberation of Indian people. But the then revisionist leadership not only betrayed Telengana Armed Struggle but also pushed the struggle of Indian people for liberation into the quagmire of refomism and parliamentarianism. Struggle against this revisionist line continued uninterrupted in the communist movement of the country and Naxalbari struggle became an expression of this struggle.… Read More
