[ox-en] Creating a revolutionary situation


	We have seen how the intensifying technological revolution, especially the 
information and communication Technology revolution is forcing the 
transformation of the minimalist state into a maximalist state. But that 
transformation is incompatible with the laws of capitalist society and its 
relations of production. Further development of technological tools and their 
rapid adoption will multiply the power of bureaucracy for arbitrary actions 
many fold. But we can’t hold up technological development or adoption because 
of that. Even if somebody so desires, the blind social forces will overpower 
	The only way out is to abrogate the arbitrary power of the bureaucracy by 
making every information being guarded by Government and corporate 
bureaucracy public, accessible to everybody. Replace the super regulators 
with people’s power. Technology has made ‘Death of Privacy’ a reality. 
Implementation of a transparent dictatorship of the dispossessed majority is 
within the capabilities of technology now.  It may need a people’s uprising 
	Of course by this very simple, easily implementable action the revolution 
will be uprooting the foundation of existing class society. For as Communist 
Manifesto says “The proletarians cannot become  masters of the productive 
forces of society, except by abolishing their own previous mode of 
appropriation. They have nothing of their own to secure and to fortify; there 
mission is to destroy all previous securities for, and insurances of, 
individual property”.
	Further, ”The development of Modern Industry, therefore, cuts from under its 
feet the very foundation on which the bourgeoisie produces and appropriates 
products. What the bourgeoise, therefore, produces above all, is its own 
grave-diggers. Its fall and the victory of the proletariat are equally 
	By making the Death of Privacy a reality with respect to Governments and all 
corporate bureaucracies without any exception, we will be smashing the 
bureaucratic apparatus of the state finally and globally. Technology has made 
this already feasible.
