Nightmare Communism 101: Part 1

Marx famously stated in the Manifesto of the Communist Party: "There is a spectre haunting Europe: the spectre of Communism."

This is a fitting preamble for the neophyte's introduction to Nightmare Communism. Communism, prior to the formation of the Nightmare Communist Party, has been only that: a spectre, a hollow harbinger, the ghost of things to come. The Nightmare Communist Party is the first true expression of the Communist ideal to transform that spectre into the very real spirit that haunts the night terrors of every day-trader, every quant at Goldman Sachs, every NASDAQ and SEC certified broker. Nightmare Communism is the dream of the final and irrecuperable death of Capital.

Why have Communist movements failed in the past?

In every instance, they have been willing to compromise. To compromise with so-called "libertarian" factions, to compromise with the global capitalist hegemony, to compromise with internal "human rights" groups.

Nightmare Communism is the only movement to overcome these contradictions. So-called "libertarian" factions will be executed, publicly. The running-dog lackeys of the global capitalist hegemony (and, of course, their financier masters) will be executed, publicly. So-called "human rights" movements, both their leaders and fellow-travelers, will be executed, publicly. We will reduce the human population to a more manageable size. We will maim, torture, and kill all who oppose us. Those who might be of some value later on might be granted the privilege of serving the People in the acid mines.

This might sound slightly harsh to those still beholden to the global hegemony of bourgeois democracy. It is nothing of the kind. It is the ultimate clemency, the ultimate freedom. Those who are incapable of serving the people will be graciously permitted to die. Those who are deemed worthy of public service will be mercifully permitted to attend re-education camps for as long as it takes to transform them into functioning Party members.

Remember, comrades. Ask not what the Party can do for you, but what you can do for the Party. Or else.

There will come a day, comrades, when no-one alive will remember the sad tragedy of bourgeois democracy. And we will make very certain that no-one who will admit to the memory of bourgeois democracy will remain alive.

Comrades, rejoice! Tiocfaidh àr là! Our day will come!

Until then, what we need is a pogrom, and rifles.

An End to Sectarianism

One of the constant spectres haunting the left is the virulent plague of sectarianism. The infantile disorder of Left Communism, whether it be anarchist-communism, libertarian communism, or council communism, or any blend or permutation thereof, cannot seem to escape the trap of the "narcissism of minor differences."

Nowhere is this more clear than in the left-libertarian circles of North America. From the Near Eastern Feral Action Collective, or NEFAC (recently reconstituted as Action Struggle Action), to the Workerist Spastic Action Club, to Canadian Struggle Action Action, it is clear that the common thread uniting left communists is wanting to distinguish themselves from other left communists.

It is no wonder the Left is a splintered mess. On the one hand, you have ex-punks and hippies and fellow-travelers who would prefer to expound upon the exceptionalism of their own special flavor of the same tired leftist ideology that all the others share in essence. On the other hand are the committed proletarians who will inevitably buy into these organizations, temporarily, until they become disillusioned with left-handed parliamentary masturbation and ineffective inaction for which their hard-earned dues gets them... what?

Only Nightmare Communism offers an alternative. Nightmare Communism promises no interminable meetings, no endless debates, no splinters and sects and factions.

Nightmare Communism promises only one thing: Communism. There will be no meetings, the Central Committee will express the will of the Party, which is the only true expression of proletarian consciousness. The Central Committee will undertake the burden of decision-making, and so debate will be rendered obsolete. And sectarianism with its concomitant narcissism of minor differences will be abolished once and for all, as all deviationist tendencies will be suppressed with extreme prejudice.

Comrades, rejoice! The Nightmare Communist Party presents you with a shining path, a great leap forward beyond the shallow self-congratulatory mutual appreciation societies of the left-communist ghetto. Remember, comrades, Party membership is not an option. It is a duty and a privilege.

Visions of Nightmare Communism

Comrades, rejoice! Party adherents have begun to craft visual representations of our Nightmare Communist future. Here are a few choice samples:

Enjoy, and be inspired.

Very soon indeed...

On Marxist-Cannibalism

The Party has recently become aware of a revisionist tendency known as "Marxist-Cannibalism." Adherents doubt the necessity of the rigorous discipline of the cadre and the application of scientific socialism by the vanguard. They suggest that all that is necessary to usher in an era of communism is for the proletariat to eat the rich.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

The bourgeoisie will be executed so swiftly and mercilessly, that there will not be time to consume all of their flesh before it rots. However, the flesh of the rich which can be salvaged will be collectivized and processed into digestible rations by the protein reclamation factories. Thus fueled by the flesh of the enemies of our class, the glorious Red Army can continue its mission to abolish class society, kill the rich and provide ever more fodder for the protein reclamation plants.

In short, Nightmare Communism abolishes cannibalism as a separate sphere of life.

The infantile disorder known as Marxist-Cannibalism is simply a knee-jerk response to the awesome, irresistible power of the absolute rule of the Party. Like all deviationist tendencies, it will be purged ruthlessly, and its proponents sent to the nearest salt mine re-education facility.

Now back to work, comrade.

On "Common Struggle"

One of the most cited stories in leftist circles today is Northeastern Federation of Anarchist-Communists (NEFAC) name change to Common Struggle - Libertarian Communist Federation. Many comments have been made on this change both in degenerate, deviationist circles and within Party ranks.

This constitutes the first Party communiqué on the event. Many have cited NEFAC as one of the primary recruiting arms of the Nightmare Communist Party. This is both accurate and a deviationist statement. The Party does not recruit, it devours. However, NEFAC has been useful in demonstrating the futility of "anarchist" organizations to those with a class analysis useful to the Party.

While the Party does not explicitly control the activities of NEFAC (now Common Struggle), it observes with great interest. At first, the Central Committee was divided on the choice of name change, as it was not consulted in an official capacity. However, upon reflection, the Central Committee acknowledges the wisdom of this change. It is not enough to demonstrate the futility of "anarchist" organizations to the proletariat. The proletariat must reject ALL "libertarian" notions so that the ultimate, unquestionable, inscrutable authority of the Central Committee of the Nightmare Communist Party might be embraced by the masses, for it is only through the activity of the elite vanguard of the proletariat embodied in the Central Committee that Nightmare Communism shall come to encompass the totality of human activity.

We wish you well, comrades. Do as you have done in the past, and what is left of humanity wil welcome the dictatorship of the proletariat as expressed through the Party with open arms. At least, if they know what's good for them.

When we have each other, we are never alone.

Now back to work, comrade.

The Means of Reproduction

One of the most disturbing trends in contemporary political discourse is the defense of the "family." This is used to defend everything from heteronormative social policy to the suppression of anti-bullying policies in public schools.*

Let us be clear, comrades. The "family" is one of the first things that will be abolished under Nightmare Communism. Although we reject the capitalist mode of production, we represent the only hope of progress out of capitalism, and as such must embrace all of the advantages of the means of production developed under capitalism. This includes advances made in reproductive health technologies, so that sexuality may now be totally divorced from reproduction. This is the ultimate advance in women's liberation, comrades. The Aristotelian requirement for women to achieve full participation in the public sphere is now fulfilled; therefore any feminist who does not embrace Nightmare Communism is a hypocrite.

Further, this means that the means of reproduction can be fully collectivized; the next generation of humanity will be produced and raised by the Nightmare Communist Party according to our own criteria. And let me just remind you what happens to those who question the Party....

One of the points of unity if Nightmare Communism is an embrace of Celtic warrior sexuality. In the past this meant certain obligations to the family for the sake of reproduction; with the collectivization of the means of reproduction, this means sex becomes divorced from side-effects (persistent state), and becomes purely functional.

If you're not a programmer, let me assure you, that last pun was hilarious.

Besides, recreation and procreation have overlapped for far too long.

Nightmare Communism. You can't always get what you want. But if you try sometimes, you might find, you get what the Party wants you to have.

Now back to work, comrade.

* Under Nightmare Communism, bullying will be a right exclusively reserved to the Party.

A Futurist Future


1. We sing the love of dangerous ideas. Comfort is weakness.
2. The essential elements of our epoch will be conviction not swayed by morality and eternal revolt.
3. Literature has up to now magnified pensive immobility, ecstasy and slumber. We want to exalt movements of aggression, feverish sleeplessness, the double march, the perilous leap, the slap and the blow with the fist. In the end, there will be no more need for literature that is not propaganda.
4. We declare that the splendor of the world has been enriched by technology: machine-gun fire, the factories and the engineering of genetics. Nature is ours by right.
5. We want to crucify man upon the hammer and the sickle, the ideal axis of which crosses the earth, itself hurled along its orbit.
6. The soldier must spend himself with harshness, uniformity and violence to increase the enthusiastic fervor of the proletariat.
7. Beauty exists only in struggle. There is no masterpiece that has not an aggressive character. Revolution must be a violent assault on the forces of the unknown, to force them to bow before man.
8. We are on the extreme promontory of the centuries! What is the use of looking behind at the moment when we must open the mysterious shutters of the impossible? Time and Space died yesterday. We are already living in the absolute, since we have already created an eternal and bold party to enact our will.
9. We want to glorify war — the only cure for the world — militarism, authoritarianism, the destructive gestures of the communist youth, the beautiful ideas which kill, and contempt for all human weakness, especially that weakness which divides our mighty weapon, the working class.
10. We want to demolish museums and libraries, fight morality, heteronormitivity and all opportunist and utilitarian cowardice.
11. We will sing of the great crowds agitated by work, pleasure and revolt; the multi-colored and polyphonic surf of revolutions against modern capital.

What Is To Be Done?

It is a dark time for humanity, and a darker time for the United States. The Tea Party Caucus and their toadies at Fox News seem to dominate our discourse on tax policy and fiscal measures. Paul Krugman is lamenting the Fed Chair's inability to enact progressive measures due to threats from the christo-fascist Rick Perry and his running-dog lackeys, and the last, best hopes for the recuperation of the capitalist system are fading away due to the right-wing masturbatory fantasies of our capitalist overlords.

Comrades, our current situation illustrates the impossibility of this infantile disorder called 'democracy.' When the party which supposedly espouses the notion of rational agents operating in a free market succeeds only by turning a majority of the populations against their own economic self-interest, the time for Nightmare Communism is upon us.

What is needed now is an elite vanguard with the vision to disregard such petit-bourgeois notions as 'freedom', 'rights', and 'democracy', so that a truly free society might emerge... a society in which the only truth is the truth of the Party, in which the only freedom is the freedom to belong to the Party, in which the only ideal is a humanity without capitalist exploitation.

How will we deal with these dissenters? Comrades, we must have courage and the strength of our convictions. We must have the moral fortitude to crucify these undesirables (quite literally), to execute them publicly, to torture them on live television. We must demonstrate the fate that will befall all enemies of the People. We must create a machine to keep them alive indefinitely while sodomizing them repeatedly with a baseball bat embedded with razors. We must have the courage to deny morality in order to create a moral societal order. We must have the courage to destroy everything for the sake of new creation.

Comrades, we must be Nightmare Communists.

When we have each other, we are never alone.
