    In year 2015, at high-time of Dresden Monday excitement, I spoke with Frank Richter. Pegidas people seemed to me small spiritual and engherzig, even little self-confident, because without a total German voice. Germany's big media are all western, but y consider mselves normal German. Foreign-eyed look to east and distort slightly. In optics, perspective shortening is called. But long-time offended folk comrades, Blind trigger lies press! Roar, dwarf mselves.

    To my surprise, judges talked about religion and Karl Marx.

    The east, he said, is eighty percent aisiert. Everywhere re is a world-vivid emptiness, political homelessness and moral weakness. Marxism-Leninism did not work politically in GDR, but as a world declaration. 1989/90 he disappeared, completely silent, within weeks. Thus, many people lost a framework of orientation.

    Clear sentences, more helpful than usual stir in mood broth.

    What was GDR? Germany, like FRG. And outpost of Soviet victors. Ideologically, it rested on two pillars: anti-fascism and anticapitalism. Both related. Fascism, called National Socialism in west, was considered to be "most aggressive form of monopoly capitalism"; He had put world on fire and killed 55 million people. He broke up with anti-Hitler coalition, mainly thanks to Soviet Union, which now installed its system in new vassal states.

    As Präsowjetischer chief ideologue, Karl Marx served, of course, dictatorial. According to doctrine, what Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels had devised became reality through Lenin's October Revolution. With Stalin's Red Army, state doctrinal Marxism-Leninism reached East Germany. He owed GDR Germans from Hitler War and earned m a doctorate in history. Now we also enjoyed happiness of classless society or, for a period of transition, dictatorship of proletariat.

    This article comes from time No. 20/2018. Here you can read entire output.

    Mysteriously coveted 1968 likewise liberated Czechoslovakia a socialism with a human face. Moscow had tanks rolling, Prague Spring froze. In same year I experienced my first Marx anniversary. All over GDR emblazoned 150-year-old Wallehaupt. After all, Karl Marx condemned American War in Vietnam. Me too.

    1972: End of School. Director Rüdiger had threatened: with her mane no graduation certificate! Then new party and head of state Erich Honecker explained that it was not important what was growing on heads, but its content. Comrade Rüdiger handed me testimony and spoke pressed: Acquire to Karl Marx's hair length now also his knowledge.

    1973: Teaching training. The Unidad popular of Socialist president Allende reigned in Chile. Discussion with civic science teacher. Chile, I found, have shown that socialism can also triumph democratically through bourgeois elections. The teacher disagreed: US imperialism would not tolerate a socialist Chile, which he knew as a Marxist. On September 11, 1973, teacher kept right: military coup in Santiago, assisted by CIA. Salvador Allende died, like Victor Jara, like Pablo Neruda. Probably 4,000 people were murdered, tens of thousands came to concentration camp. Henceforth, I knew that empires were not freedom powers.
