A news in Kantipuronline shocked me today. The Nepalese maoists (CPN-M)are moving to remove the private ownership of property and are in the process of converting the properties of their leaders to the party ownership. Is this a cheap propaganda before the constituent assembly election or do they really think this system works in the 21st century of global capitalism?
In a drive to create a communist ‘commune’, the CPN-Maoist has initiated collecting details of individual property of its leaders and cadres to transfer them in the name of the party.
Holy cow!!! A communist ‘commune’ ? Am I in a dream? We have all the evidences from the history to prove that this system failed in almost all the places and it cannot succeed in Nepal either. Moreover, this is the age of global capitalism. Communism has no place in this world to all the rational people.
Not only this, the maoists aim to control everything of their party cadres. Do all these party cadres really feel the public ownership of resources is a good idea or have they been forced? Ekantipur further writes:
The Maoist decision against holding individual property was also reflected in the party’s ruling to all its lawmakers. The party has ruled that its lawmakers can’t possess the money, received under the Parliamentary Act related to facilities and perks to parliamentarians. The party has taken responsibility of managing the expenses of its lawmakers.
What? Seriously, there is something wrong in the minds of Nepalese Maoists. They seem to be going under a some sort of trauma. They need to grow up and understand the outside world better before they end up being dead. They just need to understand that communism has no place on present day world. However, if they are doing this for a voter attraction, then they are doing another great mistake. You can fool once, you can fool twice, but you cannot fool the people forever…
