The words “socialism” and “communism” do not exist for the majority of Western citizens. In order to get back to a normal philosophical discussion on different ways how to change society, it is necessary to reestablish the lexicon that has disappeared, an Italian journalist, writer and public figure Giulietto Chiesa said on April 22 in his last interview to the Rossa Primavera News Agency.
In this interview dedicated to the 150th anniversary of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin’s birth, the writer told about the crisis of social-political thinking in Europe, about the fact that Lenin and the Soviet Union’s heritage has been almost consigned into oblivion, about necessary actions to take the lost back.
“The terms “socialism” and “communism” are being perceived in a negative way. These words are a sort of insult in the West…One should not pronounce these words as if they had some real meaning. These terms do not exist for the vast majority of population! In my opinion, it is another lexicon that prevails”, Giulietto Chiesa said to a journalist.
According to him, the first step to reestablish the necessary lexicon is to create its own mass media that will transmit communist ideas. “There is no system of dissemination of these information flows. All mass media are controlled by the enemies of peace and by the enemies of people”, stressed the writer.
He expressed his conviction that people’s conscious will change due to the global crisis. “But it will be a very difficult and sorrowful process”.
