When I woke up that morning I didn’t know I had False Consciousness. I did know I was going to attend my first SWP meeting. The morning after that meeting; I was cured. I had lost my False Consciousness and now had True Consciousness instead. A Marxist consciousness. An SWP consciousness.
That Truth was illuminating. It was like an epiphany. The truth scrubbed bare by the branch chairman – Chairmen Bennett.
To think that all these years I swam in the filth of capitalist falsehood. Why didn’t my teachers tell me that the Zionists caused the Second World War or that President Bush had bought Iraq, for $100, from a corporate friend on Wall Street? Why didn’t they tell that Churchill was a Nazi and that the USA is officially a Nazi state? And what about the six million Palestinians killed by German and American bombers during WW2? You don’t hear much about that, do you? As well as the fact that Muslim invented mathematics, discovered quantum mechanics and sent the first man to the moon. The ignorance of people astonishes me.
Now I know the truth. My false consciousness will never again lie to me. I now know that Marx - Praise Be Upon him - is right. Today’s workers are getting poorer and capitalism is in its final Final Crisis. I know that British workers are exploited more today than they were in the 1850s. I know that Muslims love peace as much as the rest of us and that Islam is a theological version of Marx’s - Praise Be Upon Him - socialism. I know that all British convicted terrorists have been set up by the State and that the so called “groomers” are a minority and it has nothing to do with their being Muslim. In any case, the groomers are Hindus anyway; not Muslim. I know that the Revolution is coming, on Friday night, and that after it there will be no more exploitation, Oppression, Islamophobia or Zionism.
I know all this because Chairman Bennett told me. Not just that. I know it’s true because this morning’s Socialist Worker explained everything. And, in any case, when I subject these so-called “realities” to Marx’s - Praise Be Upon Him - analysis then the truth becomes very clear. For hidden underneath appearances is a capitalist reality that the State - and the Superstructure generally - is intent on hiding from us all.
It is up to us, as the True Vanguard of the Oppressed Muslims and the Exploited Workers, to show you the way. To strip away your False Conscious and show you the dialectical and materialist reality that lies underneath.
Have faith in us as we have faith in Chairman Bennett. And as Chairman Bennett has faith In Marx - Praise Be Upon Him - Himself.
