smashing.nirvana If we’re to be materialist dialecticians, we’d be already too familiar with the truth: nothing is eternal. Consequently, culture and nationality are not somehow excluded from this law. However, in more relevance to the topic, everything is the result of contradiction. It is national identity that is the product of the oppressed masses in response to colonialism and, now, neo-colonialism, globalization, etc. This utilization of nationalism is the cry of the oppressed resulting from the need of liberation.
Does class-war, liberation, not begin with self-identification? The worker acknowledges his existence as a proletarian; thus, he posits his position within the arena of class-struggle, his enemy: the bourgeoisie. In the case of modern capitalist imperialism, it is of the utmost need for the proletariat of one country to nationalize their means of production, to identify themselves, and, thus, organize and unite in opposition to the imperialist country. However, you tread on thin ice, if you fail to separate bourgeois nationalism with proletarian nationalism. The latter is the one needing to be enforced; the former to be snuffed. But that leaves the boundaries of the current topic.
Returning to topic, capitalist imperialism complicates internationalism. Colonialism has caused the material conditions of different capitalist economics to vary widely. The birth of the labor-aristocracy in the first-world nations is proof enough. Yes, both proletariats are exploited, although, not equally. It remains wholly unscientific to apply one method to varying situations; Marxism calls for a concrete analysis of a concrete problem. Lenin and Stalin recognized this truth; Trotsky did not.
