Why Do We Need to Struggle More for Our Freedom?

“…the modern workers’ struggle is a part of history and a part of social progress. In the middle of it, we learn how we must fight…”

In post-cold world, does the whole world become a far better place to live in? Does the world become more just and equitable? Would peace and justice automatically swoop in? Interestingly, that in fact is what most people always think or at least, assume. One major global power, which formerly was acknowledged as a repressive and totalitarian system, has been torn down. So, presumably the world would conform to more ‘favourable’ ideology that wins out the war, since what’ve appeared on the surface is an ideology that counter oppression and shelter free-thinking. BUT,unfortunately as soon as the hidden agenda emerged, the new face of evil would re-appear. As what Rosa Luxemburg elucidated nearly hundred years ago in her account of anti-imperialism : accumulation of capital is a major source and early stage to attain power and establish a regime as well as to wield in a mighty and autocratic control over population.In the modern era, as globalisation sweeps through the entire world, it inevitably enables the political objective for imposing undemocratic rules upon freedom to arise and it would become even more strongly unconstrained. So therefore, Luxemburg summed up a manifesto to struggle : we must resurrect the deepest consciousness of all workers, labours and the whole population to re-mobilize the movement and set off a new revolution.  The concept might be outdated, but the zeal for struggle is certainly not. Now we must take revolution to a whole new level and sets out a virtual war against the modern face of injustice and tyrannical mayhem. The spirit of struggle should be sparked again..because, it is a part of our history …we all always must to strive and fight.. for the sake of our own destiny.

About Young Contrarian

I'm Dhana, a native indonesian who currently reside in holland. I always consider myself as a natural born 'rebel' and highly skeptical free-thinker. 9/11 attack is the most defining tribulation and turning point that had extremely affected and had completely altered my frame of mind. Nowadays after i re-shaped my thought and strengthened my stance, it leads up to a handful of highly critical propositions toward imperialistic and genocidal forces that has burned this world up! My other foremost indulgences and pleasures are cinema, politics, science and blues music! those are my biggest pleasure in life! i also have few secret that have been stifled for so long : learning baseball, making a good career as a film director, producer and independent entreprenuer, Plus.. studying spanish and french language! I wish i could have a mastery in those field someday ;) ~ Best Regard from Holland~
