International Proletariat 61 (bourgeois Democracy)

Lenin wrote in his concise 'State & Revolution' that in bourgeois democracies people have rights of choosing one or the other faction of the ruling classes that is going to oppress them for the next 5 years ($ in case of US). The ruling class parties overplay and over-project their internal, mostly artificial contradictions in order to blunt the edge of major contradiction, the economic. As yet, most of the time they have succeeded as the forces of socialist alternative seem to be fragmented and confused. In India, the internal contradictions of two competing camps of imperialism represented by two national parties has become the national political contradiction. Media onslaught has made the task of radicalization of social consciousness difficult. But everyone can do easy things, we can do the difficult.
