On Terrorism: Illusion and Reality
“Terrorism in both its revolutionary and reactionary forms is, primarily, the reaction to repressive state powers of imperialism and capitalism, to the state terrorism. Terrorism is an expression of the atmosphere of directionless revolt and despair in the darkness of resurrection, reversal and counter-revolution. Terrorism is also an expression and culmination of the absence or weakness or failure of the leading subjective forces of the peoples’ revolution. It is an expression and consequence of the restlessness of the utopian, romantic, rebellious middle-class to attempt revolution instantaneously on its own and its want of faith in the organised strength and creativity of the toiling masses. To understand thoroughly the terrorist deviation and to wage an untiring ideological struggle against it, is an essentially important task of this phase of making preparation afresh for the peoples’ revolution.”
Reservation: Support, Opposition and Our Position
This essay brings in light the fooling mechanism inherent in the idea of reservation, of course fooling both “supporters” and “opponents.”
When the ruling class hurls the bait of reservation in employment or higher education, the students and unemployed youth belonging to middle class and upper castes, who are already dependent on jobs for their livelihood think that the “dalits” and backward castes are now even robbing them off their remaining opportunities of employment with the aid of the crutches of reservation. On the other hand, youth belonging to “dalit” and backward castes fail to realize that if the percentage of reservation is raised a little more and if it is implemented in an honest and effective manner, even then not even fifty percent of unemployed youth from “dalit” and the backward castes will obtain employment. Whatever meagre opportunities for employment will be available to them, even their benefits will primarily be reaped by an exceedingly small population of “dalits” who have joined middle class and people belonging to economically, socially and politically influential backward castes; and the vast majority of population living their lives as proletariat-semi proletariat will obtain almost nothing from it.
This booklet sees the question of reservation within a broad revolutionary perspective of thinking about the caste-problem and will be useful to all interested in the subject.
Where Should Students and Youth Make a New Beginning?
The student-youth magazine, ‘Ahwan Campus Times’ is being published for past fifteen years. Along with issues of education, employment, culture and various related social questions it has also given keen and thought-provoking material on the question of student– youth movement.
Three editorial articles of this magazine published in recent past (between January 2003 and January 2005) have addressed some very crucial questions facing the student– youth movement and have raised some very important issues. It is necessary that all young people who desire change should give them a thought. Keeping this in consideration, these essays have been published in the form of a booklet so that it can be read by a wide youth population.
Discussing the obstacles, problems and challenges in the path of preparing for future revolutions these essays call upon the new generation of revolutionaries to understand the science of revolution and with help of their scientific understanding they will have to find a path of new revolution keeping their country and times in mind.
