“Marxism-Leninism” is a Fraudulent Misnomer. Leninism is not Marxian. Leninism is anti-Marxian, and ‘ante-Marxian’. Leninism is [state-]capitalist.







Marxism-Leninism is a Fraudulent Misnomer.  Leninism is not Marxian.
Leninism is anti-Marxian, and ante-Marxian.  Leninism is [state-]capitalist.







Dear Readers,



Leninism is a bloody, ruling-class ideology -- an ideology in Marx’s sense, and an object to be answered by withering critique in Marx’s sense.

The Leninist ideology was used by neo-Jacobin, putschist, [state-]capitalist parties to seize dictatorial state power from ‘sub-capitalist’, crypto-feudal ruling classes, and/or from weak, capitalist-imperialism-suppressed, comprador bourgeoisies, in the largest ‘proto-national’ territories of the global “semi-periphery” -- ‘semi-peripheral’ to the geographical capitalist core of capitalist-imperialist nation-states.

Its effect was to enrich the tiny new, state-bureaucratic ruling classes of the resulting one-party state, police-state, totalitarian, ‘proto-state-capitalist’ regimes, at the expense of the vast majority of the rest of the populations of those territories.
These new, state-bureaucratic ruling classes employed state-terrorism to perpetrate a new channel of original/primitive accumulation of state-owned industrial capital on the backs of the thereby hyper-exploited peasantry and nascent wage-working class majorities there.
These new, state-bureaucratic ruling classes did so in order to construct national military-industrial complexes designed to be sufficient to save the power of those new, state-bureaucratic ruling classes from external overthrow by military invasions from the capitalist geographical core, by order of the capitalist-imperialist nation-states’ private-capitalist ruling classes.  This ‘‘‘salvation’’’ of the new state-bureaucratic ruling classes’ power to rule was intended to be via deterring those private-capitalist ruling classes from military attacks upon the state-bureaucratic ruling classes’ subjugated national territories.
This induction of military-industrial-complex-forming “primitive accumulation” and industrialization, by the capitalist core, in these semi-peripheral territories, by threat of military overthrow of their new, bureaucratic ruling classes is the key initial transmission mechanism by which the private-capitalist world-market “law of value” also shaped these nascent, ‘proto-state-capitalist’ nation-states, at a time when their vast territories afforded them a degree of autarkic potential, and a transiently-survivable relative isolation from international trade.
These ‘proto-state-capitalist’ transients were destined to bifurcate into one of two main more-sustainable trajectories. 
Either new popular revolutions therein would succeed in transitioning them to state-dominated, mixed private-capitalist/state-capitalist, nominally-capitalist-democratic authoritarian oligarchies, the democratic aspirations of their people thwarted by the still-dominant power of the core, capitalist-imperialist nation-states. 
Or, their initial, semi-autarkic ‘proto-state-capitalist’ formations, relatively isolated from world market international trade, would give way, on the backs of failed internal popular revolutions, to full-fledged state-capitalism, on the ‘national super-corporation’ model, dependent upon success in international-commerce, and tolerant of subordinated elements of private capitalism under the domination of the sustained dictatorship of their Leninist state-bureaucratic ruling classes.
This is all prelude to, and part and parcel of, the globalization of proletarianization -- the formation of a world-wide working class, and the conversion of “hinterland”, ‘evolutely-«aufheben»-conserved’, archaic social formations into full-fledged, hybrid, state/private capitalist nation-states, increasingly state-capitalism-leaning -- ever-more-so with every amplitude-augmented “global great recession”.
This universalization of the wage-labor-relation-of-production must precede the formation of a global polity, and of a working class universal interest, that, alone, can potentiate a global transition to a ‘trans-capitalist political-economic democracy’, to ‘global renaissance’, and to global human flourishing.

Seldon on Dialectics.










Seldon on Dialectics.







Dear Readers,



Karl Seldon recently noted, to a group of new F.E.D. inductees, as follows --

Dialectics is, in part, a subjective belief in, and an expectation of future fulfillments of, the inductive hypothesis of the concrete transcendability of all dualisms -- even of apparently radical, irreconcilable dualisms.

A Seminal Motif Mostly Still Missing from ‘‘‘The Modern Mentality’’’.









A Seminal Motif that is Mostly Still Missing from ‘‘‘The Modern Mentality’’’ as a Conscious Conceptual Resource.







Dear Readers,



There exists a key conceptual insight and resource, one crucial for comprehending our world -- our universe, our cosmos -- even merely up to the level already latent in the data of modern science, that the prevailing -- capitalist -- «mentalité» still hides from itself.

That concept is that of what we call ‘onto-dynamasis’, which is about the ‘dynamicity’ of the actual ontology of our cosmos as a whole.
Ontology is dynamical, and, for the most part, cumulatively growing.  Our cosmos is continually adding new kinds -- new, previously unprecedented categories of “being”, or, better, of “becoming”, of ‘‘‘eventity’’’ -- to itself.
The ontological content referenced and represented by old, existing, already cognized ontological categories continually interacts, and, crucially, also self-interacts, in ways that continually irrupt new ontological content -- content, at first not yet cognized,  that needs to be referenced and represented by new, previously-unprecedented names and categories.

Our cosmos is a veritable cornucopia of the continual genesis of new ontology.  It is and always has been an engine of neo-ontological creativity. 
That onto-dynamical creativity applies also to we humans as part of that cosmos.  And the ontological creativity of the human part of Nature includes a new ‘onto-dynamical’ dimension, that of ideo-onto-dynamasis, as well as new kinds within the old dimension of physio-onto-dynamasis, or of ‘«physis»-onto-dynamasis, and also includes, especially, those parts of the human [sub-]creation that exhibit the correlated co-creation of new ideo-ontologytogether with new physio-ontology.  Example:  the money ‘‘‘meme’’’ within the human Phenome, correlated with coin objects.

This view of ontology is 'ontologically pluralistic' with temporally-increasing ontological plurality, in opposition to 'ontologically reductionist' monisms, dualisms, 'triadisms', etc., but is also 'meta-genealogical', or 'lineage-ic', tracing back to original, singular, 'ultimate ancestor' ontological categories, or ultimate arche' categories, for the cosmos as a whole --  the universe as ultimate totality -- and for each of the Domains which constitute its 'sub-totalities', or 'sub-universes'.

However, when it comes to ‘quanto-dynamics’, that kind of dynamical paradigm pervades the modern worldview. 

In its elaborated expressions, this pervasion includes the state-space representation of “evolution”, in which a coordinates-point, representing the total “state” of a given “dynamical system”, moves in a “space” formed by a fixed number of mutually-perpendicular dimensions and axes, each one representing and measuring, quantitatively, a [qualitatively] different “vital sign”, or “state-variable”, of that system, thus constituting the “coordinates” of that system’s ‘state-point’ in its “state-space”.  The variation with time of the quantitative values of these “vital signs” thus traces out a unified trajectory in that “space”.  [“Total”-] differential equations, describing the “law” of motion of the given system, can then be solved by well-known methods [if those equations are “linear”, or sufficiently close to “linearity”], yielding a solution-function that one can use to deterministically compute the momentaneous state of that system for any moment, i.e., for any value of the “Real”-number time parameter, past, present, or future.

But such a state-space is a fixed space, with a fixed dimensionality, and a fixed spectrum of system qualities or system attributes, represented by the state-variables and their axes.  There is no provision for qualo-dynamics -- for ‘onto-dynamasis’; for the emergence or irruption of new system ontology, with its new system qualities, its new system attributes -- should the evolution of a given system arise to the point of [ontological, qualitative] revolution, or ‘‘‘meta-evolution’’’.
For example, if a system evolves to a “singularity” -- e.g., if the solution-function computes, in forward time starting from at a specific, finite value of the time parameter, a state involving a division by zero -- there is no provision, in the contemporary canon of state-space analysis, to compute a ‘change of space’ at and after such a point of “singularity”, where the values of one or more of the old state-variables/state-dimensions “explode” to “infinity”. 

By a ‘change of “[state-]space” ’, we mean the as-if irruption, as-if from the “origin” of that state-space, of one or more new state-variable dimensions and axes, thus changing the dimensionality of that state-space, and measuring the new, “emergent” or ‘irruptant’ qualities or attributes that are signified, however obliquely, by the very division by zero that creates the “singularity”.  Nor is there provision, in the contemporary canon, for one or more of the old state-variable dimensions and axes to as-if collapse back into that “origin”; to wither away or undergo dissolution, nor for some former control parameter space axes to become new state-variable, state-space axes, nor for some former state-variable state-space axes to transfer to new axes in the also thus changing control parameter space.  The Seldonian NQ_ arithmetic for dialectic is axiomatically designed  to facilitate its users in conducting onto-dynamical computations, but, however, not at the state-space/control-parameter-space, nonlinear differential total-equation level, but at the much simpler, algebraic, ontological-categorial combinatorics level, using a heuristic solution-algorithm.

Until the cosmological ubiquity of the ‘qualitative dynamism’ of self-changing, self-expanding ontology -- and the ubiety and localization of the latter as the universal labor of human Nature -- becomes more widely grasped within the advancing human Phenome, Terran humanity will go on not noticing key discoveries, and, hence, key opportunities, that are already extant in the data of the modern sciences, but not yet cognized as such.

The Avengers Movie as a Psychohistorical Phenomenon in the Seldonian Sense









The Avengers Movies Hyper-Popularity as a Psychohistorical Phenomenon in the Seldonian Sense.







Dear Readers,



The global box-office surge for the latest of the Marvel Comics movies -- “Avengers: Endgame” -- is, without doubt, a ‘‘‘psychohistorical phenomenon’’’, in the Seldonian sense:  one that cries out for a similarly ‘‘‘psychohistorical’’’ explanation.

The reviewers at the YouTube “Wisecrack” channel argue that the resonance viewers feel with this concluding sequel has to do with three paradigms of time -- of human history: of the structure and content of human historical time -- with all of which the vast viewing audience of this film feels comfortable.  The following link will take you to that YouTube review-video --

These three paradigms of historical time are being played out, in this movie, and its many “prequels”, per the “Wisecrack” reviewer, at the level of the life-story arcs of individuals, of the individual personalities who constitute key characters in this series:  Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man.
Per this review, Captain America embodies a “fixed point” of unchanging, “eternal verities”; a quasi-Parmenidean paradigm of time:  certain ethical principles, certain values, are unchangingly true for all times, e.g., Captain America’s hostility to bullies of all stripes.
The Thor story, on the contrary, instances the kind of “cyclical time” paradigm common in ancient mythologies in particular, and in the pre-modern mentality in general.  Thor’s story is of an undulation of dizzying, supernatural high points, followed by devastating low points, followed by re-ascendance to the heights again, and so on..., albeit with a slight hint of “helical” progression in that “circulation”, e.g., toward greater self-acceptance, in that otherwise mostly circular, hence gainless, ride.
Iron Man’s story, contrary to both the Thor story and the Captain America saga, per the reviewer, embodies the modern, rectilinearly progressing, ever-improvement «mentalité» about temporality.

These three paradigm’s, we find, are, indeed -- if perhaps unconsciously, or only semi-consciously -- known to, and ingredient in, the contemporary viewer psyche.  But all three miss a far more realistic paradigm about time, which we shall call, here, the ‘helical-vortical’ view of time.

Per this, fourth, view, short-term “cycles” are integrated together with a rectilinear progress of continuing advances, each on unprecedented.  But there is also an ‘intra-duality’ to this progression, in which, to advance in one dimension requires, for a time, a “progression” into adversity in another, coupled dimension, until a ‘‘‘singularity’’’ irrupts, in which both dimensions can finally advance together, the adversity healed.

At the level of our common history, as humanity -- as the Terran human species -- there is no better expositor of this paradigm than Karl Marx. 

In his view, the progress of the social forces of production -- of the ‘self-productivity’ and ‘Meta-Darwinian self-reproductivity’ of humanity -- is purchased, throughout the epochs which Marx calls the ‘‘‘prehistory’’’ of humanity, by an ever-deepening side-ways dive into growing social alienation. 

Beginning at a minimum of social alienation, in “primitive communism”, within each tribal community [but not between them], this social alienation waxes in phases, from “detribalization” and the cleavage of society into opposing classes -- of slaveholders versus salves; of “lords” versus serfs, etc. -- and in the form of the growth of “universal alienation”, at first as “production for alienation” -- production of commodities for sale, and selling [“alienation”] of commodities, at first, by petty producers -- and finally, in the extremity of social alienation that is capitalist society, by “self-alienation” -- ‘self-selling’; “universal prostitution”:  wage-labor -- and by the world of estrangement -- the world of strangers -- which results therefrom.
But Marx also predicts that this social alienation dimension will not go on deepening forever. 
At a certain point in the growth of the social forces of production, social conditions will become ripe for a return movement, back from the capitalist extremum of social alienation, toward a new minimum of social alienation, i.e., toward a return of human solidarity and community, but, this time, not only within small tribes, but on a global scale:  “socialized humanity”.
These Marxian, historical observations, and predictions, instantiate a ‘helical-vortical’ paradigm of time.  The radius of the “circular”, “cyclical” aspects of the structure and content of human history keeps widening in its “sideways” dimensions, encompassing more and more, richer and richer historical material, including the dimension of deepening social alienation.  But this widening spiral also rises vertically, including by signifying the progress of the human social-reproductive forces.  At a certain stage in this progression, the social forces of production reach a maximum that coincides with a new, higher minimum in the social alienation inherent in the new social relations of production:  higher communist society [by which I most decidedly do not mean Lenino-Stalinoid [proto-]state-capitalism], starting with what we call ‘Equitarian Society’.

This ‘helical-vortical’ paradigm of history can also be observed -- if we grow “eyes that can see” -- at the individual scale, in our own personal histories, in the triumphs and tragedies of our own social lives.

State-Capitalism is Still Capitalism.







State-Capitalism is Still Capitalism.







Dear Readers,



State-capitalism is still capitalism, as Engels noted so well, in Anti-Duhring.
The “Socialism” against which “conservatives” rail, is really just state-capitalism, the ultimate form into which national ‘private” capitalisms, due to their immanent, ‘essence-ial’ dynamics, inevitably converge:  the “end-state” of capitalism itself.
The utopian “Socialism”, the snake-oil which ‘Lenino-Stalinoids’, and ‘Lenino-Trotskyoids’, ‘Lenino-Mao-oids’, Castro-oids, Madero-oids, ILs, and Uns all try to sell you, is STILL CAPITALISM -- STATE-CAPITALISM, the worst-of-all form of capitalism for the working class majority.

Real socialism, real communism, is a grass-roots-driven political-economic democracy.  It is a restored and extended political democracy, via the restoration of political checks-and-balances, against the wholesale prostitution of the “representative-democratic” state by the overwhelming wealth-power and money-power of hyper-concentrated capital ownership, by the potentially non-violent, majoritarian institution of rule-of-law, constitutional economic checks-and-balances.  It’s antediluvian seeding, still within capitalism, is via the emergence, within capitalism, of competing worker-owned producers’ cooperatives -- ‘worker’s capital’; ‘workers’ capitalism’, as Marx noted so well in volume III of Capital.

The Nazi State was a ‘Rocke-Nazi’ State: Global Strategic Hypotheses.






  
The Nazi State was a RockefellerState:  Global Strategic Hypotheses.











Dear Readers,



The Nazi state was a Rockefeller state.  The early, ultra-degenerate “Dr. Strangeloves” of the Rockefeller, ‘capitalist anti-capitalist’, ‘human anti-humanist’, “Eugenicist” faction of the geographical core capitalist ruling class, funded and promoted a plethora of “fascist” state-capitalist, genocidal totalitarian dictatorships across Europe and Asia, including Salazar in Portugal, Franco in Spain, Mussolini in Italy, and, of course, Hitler in Germany.  These were ‘servant dictatorships’ -- servants to the Rockefeller faction, mass-murderous, terrorist, ultra-vicious police-state dictatorships to their own people.

The Hitler ‘servant-dictatorship’, in particular, was funded and serviced, for the Rockefeller faction, by the Brown and Harriman Investment back, in acts which were later indicted under the World War II “Trading with the Enemy” Act.  The person in charge of this Hitler Regime promotion: none other than Prescott Bush, the founder of the Bush Crime Family, as a lower-plutocracy servant family to the Rockefeller faction.

The Rockefeller Faction also provided the early drafts for the Hitler Regime’s infamous “Eugenics” plans -- “Generalplan East” and “Operation Barbarossa” -- the plans to conquer, enslave, and then exterminate the peoples of Eastern Europe and greater Russia.
The Rockefeller faction, and its subordinate factions in the U.K. “City of London”, etc., had long feared the growing trend toward an alliance between Russia, with its vast labor and natural resources, and its emerging industry and scientific-technological capabilities, and Germany, with its already well-developed industrial, scientific, and technological capabilities.  They feared that this potential German-Russian alliance would overthrow their global dominance, and thus also overthrow their plans for a global system of “fascist” state-capitalist police-state dictatorships, of permanent global economic [and psychological] depression, of permanent global war, and of ongoing Malthusian “Eugenics” mass extermination of the human population.  I.e., they feared that such an alliance would lead to their liquidation, and thus also destroy their ultra-sadistic plans to impose everything that George Orwell warned us about in his novel, 1984.  This was their first, failed attempt.  [They are still trying, right now planning their ‘2.0’ implementation, via ‘Global Warming Austerity’, but blocked, for the moment, by the recent ascendancy of the ‘Trump Faction’].

They thus specifically ordered their ‘servant-dictator’, Hitler, to attack East.  Their plan was for Russian and Germany to exhaust and destroy each other in a war of mutual extermination, eliminating that threat of a German-Russian alliance.

When, in 1939, Hitler signed his [totally insincere] “Peace” Pact with Stalin, and co-invaded Poland, the Rockefeller Faction realized that their ‘servant dictator’ had turned on them -- had become a ‘Franken-Dictator’ -- and was next planning to attack West, targeting THEM.  They realized that he had decided that, after all of their funding and arranging for the rearmament of Germany and the rebuilding of its war machine, that he didn’t need them anymore, that he no longer needed to serve them, but could, indeed, overthrow them, and take their former place in dominating the globe.

They had to quickly scrap their plans to overthrow the Roosevelt presidency, and to allow the Roosevelt “New Deal” reforms [which the Rockefellers have been trying to take back ever since WWII ended], and to muster the U.S. working class to die horrific deaths by the hundreds of thousands to save the Rockefellers from their own Frankenstein Monster, the Nazi Monster that they had crucially enabled, funded, and promoted to the point that this Monster became a mortal threat to all of humanity.

German Nazism was overthrown.  Hitler was defeated.  Fascist state-capitalism -- but not Stalinist state-capitalism -- was critically weakened.  The Rockefellers had to stop openly promoting “Eugenics”, and move on to disguised latter-day forms of it, such as their “People Are Pollution” Environmentalism. 

However, the most tragic aspect of the outcome of WWII is that the Rockefeller faction -- the Eugenicist Mega-Monsters who drafted “GeneralPlan Ost” and “Operation Barbarossa”, and who imposed upon the world the deaths in agony of millions through their funding and promotion of “Eugenics” and of fascism worldwide -- were left unprosecuted, unpunished, still in power.  

After their extermination of the leadership of their rival, Roosevelt Faction -- murdering, in short order, John Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, and Martin Luther King [and, later, John Kennedy Jr., once he began to pose a political threat] -- as well as the later demise of their Russian Stalinist rival for global dictatorship, in 1989, the Rockefeller Faction left itself in unrivalled power, to preside over the hollowing out of the American working class, and of American democracy, until they were within a stone’s through of implementing their planned global humanocide “2.0” -- when their plans were suddenly and unexpectedly blocked, at least temporarily, by the working-class-backed ascendancy of the Trump Faction of the capitalist class, which has sought to electorally, policy-wise, and otherwise ally with the U. S. working class against the Rockefeller Faction.

Ever since, the Rockefeller-controlled mass media have vilified Trump for each of his breaths, for every single inhalation, and for every single exhalation.

But all of their incessant attempts at the character assassination of Trump have so far failed.
