Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, has stressed the importance of studying The Communist Manifesto.
The purpose of reviewing The Communist Manifesto is to understand and grasp the power of the truth of Marxism and write a new chapter of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, Xi said Monday when presiding over a group study session of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee.
We suggest the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China study the section on Conservative and Bourgeois Socialism in the Communist Manifesto and then look in the mirror.
Conservative or Bourgeois Socialism
A part of the bourgeoisie is desirous of redressing social grievances in order to secure the continued existence of bourgeois society.
To this section belong economists, philanthropists, humanitarians, improvers of the condition of the working class, organisers of charity, members of societies for the prevention of cruelty to animals, temperance fanatics, hole-and-corner reformers of every imaginable kind.
This form of socialism has, moreover, been worked out into complete systems.
We may cite Proudhon’s Philosophie de la Misère as an example of this form. (also known as market socialism* )
The Socialistic bourgeois want all the advantages of modern social conditions without the struggles and dangers necessarily resulting therefrom.
They desire the existing state of society, minus its revolutionary and disintegrating elements.
They wish for a bourgeoisie without a proletariat.
The bourgeoisie naturally conceives the world in which it is supreme to be the best; and bourgeois Socialism develops this comfortable conception into various more or less complete systems.
In requiring the proletariat to carry out such a system, and thereby to march straightway into the social New Jerusalem, it but requires in reality, that the proletariat should remain within the bounds of existing society, but should cast away all its hateful ideas concerning the bourgeoisie.
A second, and more practical, but less systematic, form of this Socialism sought to depreciate every revolutionary movement in the eyes of the working class by showing that no mere political
reform, but only a change in the material conditions of existence, in economical relations, could be of any advantage to them.
By changes in the material conditions of existence, this form of
Socialism, however, by no means understands abolition of the bourgeois relations of production, an abolition that can be affected only by a revolution, but administrative reforms, based on the
continued existence of these relations; reforms, therefore, that in no respect affect the relations between capital and labour, but, at the best, lessen the cost, and simplify the administrative work, of bourgeois government.
Bourgeois Socialism attains adequate expression when, and only when, it becomes a mere figure of speech.
Free trade: for the benefit of the working class. Protective duties: for the benefit of the working class. Prison Reform: for the benefit of the working class.
This is the last word and the only seriously meant word of bourgeois socialism.
It is summed up in the phrase: the bourgeois is a bourgeois – for the benefit of the working class.

Conduct enquiry into the Gadchiroli Maoist massacre : Janakeeya Manushyavakasha Prasthanam
It has been reported in the media that 40 Maoists have been killed in two separate encounters that took place the other day in the Gadchiroli district of Maharashtra.
Gadichiroli police had initially informed that 16 Maoists were killed in an encounter that started by 10. a.m and lasted till 1 p.m on Sunday in the Kasansur village of Gadchiroli district.
Later after the media reports that dead bodies were floating in the Indravati river 15 more dead bodies too were recovered.
And 36 hours later in another incident of encounter that took place in the Jimlagatta area of Gadchiroli 6 more Maoists were reported killed.
According to the reports so far, the death toll has risen to 40. Its learned that the Maoists were in the village to attend a wedding of an Adivasi in the Kasansur village when the C-60 Commandos of Maharashtra police attacked them.
Its unbelievable that in the encounter that last for four hours, no police personnel sustained a minor injury.
Its alleged that the police had poisoned the food served to the Maoists. The Maoists, who consumed the poisoned food were captured alive, tortured and then killed, its alleged.
There are unconfirmed reports that villagers too are there among those who were killed. Its to be noted that majority of those who have been killed in this incident are poor Adivasis and most of them are women too.
Their armed resistance is the natural response to the outrageous inroads made to their areas by the Indian state and big corporates.
The problems raised by them call for political solution. Massacres like this will only help to intensify tension and lead to more bloodshed and killings.
That they took up arms is not a justification to attack and kill them in the most heinous manner, which is quite unbecoming of a developed democratic country where rule of law is in effect.
Its a fact that for the last few years these areas have been highly militarized under the guise of Maoist hunt and widespread oppression is going on there to extort their natural resources including land and water.
The oppression taking place in the North Eastern states of India and Kashmir and Gadchiroli massacre are not to be seen separately.
It has already been identified that majority of the encounter killings by the state are orchestrated fake encounter killings.
As fake encounters are on the rise in the name of Maoist hunt and actions against terrorists, its difficult to trust the state claim of encounter killings.
And hence the longstanding demand of human rights organisations that FIR should be registered for any encounter killing and enquiry be made on them.
In the PUCL case verdict of 2014, the Supreme Court of India has explained the procedures to be adopted over any encounter killing.
Accordingly the Janakeeya Mnushyavakasha Prasthanam (People's Human Rights Movement) demands the Government of Maharashtra to register an FIR and conduct enquiry into the Gadchiroli massacre.
We also call for the human rights, social activists to come forward and see that the procedures as per the Supreme Court verdict are kept by the government and bring out the facts in this incident Janakeeya Manushyavakasha Prasthanam (People's Human Rights Movement)

Comrade Ganapathy General Secretary of CPI Maoist was thought to be amongst those killed - but no evidence of his death.
Democracy and Class Struggle says more martyrs against Hinduvta Fascist Neo Liberalism in India - these comrades are the precursors of a great People's War against Hinduvta Fascism and Neo Liberalism in India.

Democracy and Class Struggle more martyrs against Hindutva Fascist Neo Liberalism in India - these comrades are the precursors of a great People's War against Hindutva Fascism and Neo Liberalism in India.
The security forces have recovered at least 11 more bodies of suspected Maoists from the Indravati River here early on Tuesday, official sources said.
The bodies, which were bloated and have started to decompose, were found floating on the banks of river which flows along the Maharashtra-Chhattisgarh borders.
These 11 Maoists are believed to be from among those who managed to escape to the forests during a gunfight with security forces on Sunday.
They must have succumbed to their injuries, an official declining to be identified told IANS.
Searching and combing operations in the entire Gadchiroli district, which has been virtually sealed by the security forces, continues in the jungles, villages, hills and valleys to track and snuff out the Maoists from their hideouts.
At least six Maoists were gunned down in a fresh gunfight in the district, barely 36 hours after Sunday's encounter which left 16 rebels dead.
The fresh encounter took place late on Monday in the Rajaram Kahnhila village in Jimlagatta with the crack commandos of the C-60 force.
A high-ranking commander of the Aheri Dalam, identified as Nandu, is among those killed. Jimlagatta is 60 km from the scene of Sunday's ambush in which 16 Maoists including three of their high-ranking commanders and seven women were killed.
Other Maoist-infested states besides Maharashtra -- Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Jharkhand, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana are on a state of high alert, ever since the state security forces here launched their biggest anti-Maoist operations in around four decades
Police said Tuesday that dozens of Maoist guerrillas had been killed in jungle raids in India's remote interior by commandos fighting the country's longest-running conflict.
Ambushes on rebel camps over the past two days in forest deep inside the western state of Maharashtra have left at least 37 fighters dead, police said.
In the latest raid six guerrillas, including four women, were killed in a shootout late Monday in Gadchiroli district, Maharashtra state's head of anti-Maoist operations Sharad Shelar told AFP.
Police also seized weapons and ammunition from the encampment, roughly 900 kilometres (560 miles) east of the state capital Mumbai, he added.
On Sunday special commandos had surrounded a rebel camp in forests within the same district and fought approximately 100 guerillas, police said.
Sixteen bodies were recovered from the scene, but police later pulled another 15 corpses from the nearby Indravati River of fighters they said had drowned or succumbed to injuries.
Many of the slain rebels were women, police said.
India's Maoist insurgency began in the 1960s, inspired by Chinese revolutionary leader Mao Zedong, and has cost thousands of lives in almost daily incidents of violence.
Thousands of armed men and women -- also known as Naxals -- claim to be fighting for the rights of the indigenous tribal people, including the right to land, resources and jobs.
The Maoists are believed to be present in at least 20 Indian states but are most active in forested resource-rich areas in the states of Chhattisgarh, Orissa, Bihar, Jharkhand and Maharashtra.
Gadchiroli is a key transit point for Maoist guerrillas, connecting western India with central and southern states in a restive tranche known as the "red corridor".
Last month eight members of the security forces were killed in Chhattisgarh after suspected rebels blew up their vehicle with a landmine.
Two soldiers were killed last week in a similar explosion in the central state
