The bourgeoisie did not respect its heavy heritage
227 years later, regression towards the new Feudalism
by system failure
It was 14th July of 1789 when the representatives of the bourgeoisie in France promised a different world. Indeed, authoritarianism and depression by Monarchy and Feudalism brought naturally a desire for a more equitable society. The triplet “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity” was not a simple slogan reproduced to become a cliche, but represented the pure willing of the majority for a big change.
128 years later, another revolution, in Russia this time, promised to impose the implementation of those things declared in 1789, as the proletariat was building a class consciousness and the bourgeoisie had already abandoned its initial declarations.
Several decades since then, two ostensibly different worlds were fighting against each other. On the one hand, the Soviet Communism that imposed a direct state authoritarianism and a monstrous bureaucracy, on the other, the indirect authoritarianism by the Western states through the propaganda and psychological violence. Always behind these, a dominant big bourgeoisie which through the economic power was pulling, and pulls, the strings.
Through these 227years, the big bourgeoisie has “filled the gap” left by the monarchs and feudal lords, has dominated through the economic power, and now, is taking back everything that has been conquered with the “plebs'” blood all these decades. The whole story resembles a big fraud that has been revealed in front of our eyes.
The big bourgeoisie has “got rid” of the small-medium urban class and the proletarians to take the power monopoly. What it wants now is to “get rid” of the nation-state as has been shaped since 1789, in order to establish a global new Feudalism. Nothing has been left from the purity of the French Revolution. The triplet “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity” will end to be a slogan in millions of t-shirts manufactured in Chinese factories with humiliating wages, at most. It has already happened with the face of Che …
Does, indeed, history repeats itself and returns in a slightly different form? How many circles should pass, how many wars, conflicts, revolutions should happen, how much more blood should be spilled, until man to find its way to the true Liberty? Is this, indeed, the nature of man? Or are we “trained” to believe this, so that to live without hope? To consider “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity” as utopia which will never come true?
