Greetings comrades of Asia, America, Europe, Africa, Oceania. We invite you to the first Conference of the Comintern held in New Moscow hosted by the Bolshevik Federation. As nations carve out empires around the world, radical anti-communists threaten global peace, & natural catastrophies and wars ruin the lives of millions it should be the policy of the Comintern to maintain Global Peace and Prosperity.

We begin with a congratulations to all members of the Comintern for acheiving the first major sucess on an international scale for Communism, Anarchism, and Socialism. Unity is the backbone of our Comintern, just as it is the backbone of every revolution of the proletariat & organization of the worker. Now it is our heavy responsibility to prove our success to the world. In the face of doubt we will acheive, in the face of lies we will silence, and in the face of oppression we will revolt.

Leaders and representatives attending this conference are free to bring up whatever topics they choose, but we are urged to focus especially on these 3 important topics:

  • International: How will the Comintern maintain peace under the threat of radical anti-communists? (ie. Anti-Comintern Pact etc.)
    Proposal: What is your opinion of Premier Ivan Orlov's "International Aid Program of the Comintern". (This would organize a joint Comintern aid program for nations in need of it around the world.)
    International: How will the Comintern face the heating situation in Asia/ act of aggression by the USC?

Formal discussions will begin here, and in greater detail. The meeting will not end until, the problems at hand are addressed and solutions are set forth. We await your arrival, friends.

Signed,

Premier Ivan Orlov

An appointed Deputy to the Chairman by the name of Chuluun Baatarsaikhan was dispatched from the capital city of North Ulaanbataar (as it was known since the city became split between the Confederacy and the now Former Ming Empire) with little more than a team of aides and a Defense Adviser by air to New Moscow. Careful to navigate the strict diplomatic air lanes over Kyokojitsu airspace (OOC: if there's a problem here, Sumeragi, let me know ;) ), the foreign-purchased Ilyushin Il-96, along with its assortment of citizen passengers simply on their own time and business with the Bolsheviks, made landing in the Bolshevik Federation's capital airport whereupon they were greeted graciously by their Far East allies and ushered into a waiting car, which the Deputy Chairman himself had politely requested to be of modest quality, wishing not to impede upon the Bolshevik people with limos and other frivolous waste. Chuluun was certainly not in envy of the Chairman when it came to Lobonsky getting to fly all the way to the Americas, given that he was not a fan of the humidity that the region was known for made for wearing the formal ushankas an unpleasant experience. Out here, things were far more agreeable to the wearing of such garb.

Upon arrival at their accommodations, again stressing that no great expense was to be made at the behalf of him or his staff, the Deputy Chairman made only brief time to get things organized before taking a fraction of his aides to the actual Conference. Invitation in hand, he approached the Bolshevik staffers and security at the conference and, with a firm arm grasp, he smiled and spoke slowly in his best Russian "We Mongol-Swedes are most honored to be in attendance at this conference and wish to meet personally with the other attendees and our most gracious hosts before we settle down to the unpleasant, yet rewarding business of safeguarding our unified revolution."

Representative Carlisle chartered a commercial jet and traveled to the Bolshevik Federation immediately after receiving the invitation. The situation in East Asia was urgent and required a rapid response. This would be the furthest North she had ever gone, but the synthetic fur coat she brought allowed her to withstand the Siberian frost.

She was glad to be out of the cold when she entered the conference room and hurriedly sat in her seat, as though doing so would allow her to return to the warm and sunny cities of the NAAC. After hearing the topics at hand, she stood and gave her own views on them.

"Hello, comrades - it is good to see you again. I'd like to begin by congratulating you all on the great progress and growth the Comintern has seen lately - at this rate, the chains of capitalism will be broken in no time at all. Onto the first subject, peace. The reactionaries have made it clear that they are hostile to our presence both in Asia and the world. If we are too aggressive, they will attack and a bloody war will follow. If we are too submissive, the Comintern will lose all credibility and the revolution will not spread. A balance is needed. It is for this reason that I support a policy of minimal intervention in revolutions, respect of regional authority, and a refusal to back down from enemy forces. After all, if we are reasonable we will have no reason to back down and they will stop challenging our decisions eventually.

"I feel that an aid program would be a good and progressive idea, if used carefully. We can't give every tyrannical warlord supplies - we'd have no guarantee that it would actually get to his people and we'd be hurting our cause. This aid program should benefit Comintern members primarily and burgeoning leftist states or revolutions secondarily. In extreme cases of poverty, we may supply the people of bourgeois states, but only if it is clear that we are the ones behind the aid so that we may gain support in the region.

"I have made my stance clear to the USC - if I have their guarantee that the North Soviet will not be attacked either directly or indirectly, we will withdraw our forces. We do not wish to create any more instability in the region than is necessary."

"Representative Carlisle, I am, and I am certain that many others in Mongol-Sweden are, very grateful for the level-headed path that your Confederacy is willing to take in this delicate debacle facing the people of East Asia. It is primarily our wish to not see our corner of the world, hampered by a series of Western colonizations and bloody national liberation struggles, to become another sandbox for the politicians, pundits, and bureaucrats around the world to test their war-fighting prowess, while their homelands remain comfortably isolated from the horrors of such violence. We are appalled to see that the West is so willing to enforce a violent blockade against our northern Chinese cousins in an effort to starve them into adopting a political system that bests suits their capital interests, and assuages their fears of a hostile upsurge in popular activism within their own borders, and that out cousins in East Asia are willing to endorse such barbarity when they are willing to, on the same token, condemn the actions of Internationalists from around the world intervening in the very same conflict.

We are keen to establish and maintain a steady system of humanitarian and, if necessary, military aid chains throughout the many organizations and entities of the Comintern, given that anti-communist belligerents are already demonstrating a zeal for enforcing their will upon others through the means of blockades and other acts of total violence against an entire people. It will inevitably come to pass that these blockades will eventually have to be challenged and we feel that it is best that we make it clear that, regardless of where we reside, we must not tolerate such inhumane acts against any of our committed allies. It is still a shocking and disgusting notion for me, as educated and well-traveled as I may be, to think that there are those who would willingly deny the most basic humanitarian relief to a people because they have exercised self-determination in a manner that does not suit them. We must say no to this kind of barbarity, and oppose it wherever it occurs, regardless of who is the target of such an act."

OOC: Were the scholars I mentioned in the other thread allowed to attend your conference or was no decision made?

OOC: This is a strict conference amongst Comintern member nations and signatories of the treaty. AFAIK, political affiliates of a nation that have not formally agreed to the Comintern's binding document are not to be in attendance to this particular conference, though I may have interpreted wrongly. Given the particulars outlined in the OP, I am leaning towards my conclusion, and would recommend that a separate discussion be held with regards to the philosophical and political science aspects of the stated aims and goals of the Comintern in terms of ideological discussion and development. :)

OOC: Wait, what? RP crushing it, then.

OOC: precisely this. Orlov's DoE was three days ago, and it hasn't been "crushed" in RP terms, (though you "reaffirmed" your claim over this territory on the 19th, there has been no evidence that this territory is actually occupied by you) so I think its existence can be taken for granted.

Thank you for your time.

PUBLIC: The Former State of Nova Islandis is now declared a protectorate of Comintern. Any intrusion upon this territory by forces of the USC or Burma will be seen as declaration of war upon all Comintern nations.

OOC: This should probably be voted on...

OOC: Since reading the following passage from 1984, I never liked the word ''Cominterm'' as opposed to Communist International.

The name of every organization, or body of people, or doctrine, or country, or institution, or public building, was invariably cut down into the familiar shape; that is, a single easily pronounced word with the smallest number of syllables that would preserve the original derivation. In the Ministry of Truth, for example, the Records Department, in which Winston Smith worked, was called Recdep, the Fiction Department was called Ficdep, the Teleprogrammes Department was called Teledep, and so on. This was not done solely with the object of saving time. Even in the early decades of the twentieth century, telescoped words and phrases had been one of the characteristic features of political language; and it had been noticed that the tendency to use abbreviations of this kind was most marked in totalitarian countries and totalitarian organizations. Examples were such words as Nazi, Gestapo, Comintern, Inprecorr, Agitprop. In the beginning the practice had been adopted as it were instinctively, but in Newspeak it was used with a conscious purpose. It was perceived that in thus abbreviating a name one narrowed and subtly altered its meaning, by cutting out most of the associations that would otherwise cling to it.

The words Communist International, for instance, call up a composite picture of universal human brotherhood, red flags, barricades, Karl Marx, and the Paris Commune. The word Comintern, on the other hand, suggests merely a tightly-knit organization and a well-defined body of doctrine. It refers to something almost as easily recognized, and as limited in purpose, as a chair or a table. Comintern is a word that can be uttered almost without taking thought, whereas Communist International is a phrase over which one is obliged to linger at least momentarily. In the same way, the associations called up by a word like Minitrue are fewer and more controllable than those called up by Ministry of Truth. This accounted not only for the habit of abbreviating whenever possible, but also for the almost exaggerated care that was taken to make every word easily pronounceable.

Doesn't stop him giving his opinion.

Speaking of which, why "Communist International" anyway? A little more than half our members are anarchists.

OOC: Yes, I know, but a lot of what I RP I don't agree with IRL.

Anarchist communists. You don't have to be a Marxist to be a Communist.

OOC: This conference does not exist, since I would have crushed the Neo Soviet Union right after it forms.

Sorry, but you guys should consider this void.

OOC: Its the Bolshevik Federation in CNRP R and I made my DoE i dont understand why you dont recognize my nation, and I offered before to edit the size of my claims but i dont beleive you replied.

Premier Orlov calls attention to himself gathering his papers while receiving more from Bolshevik military officials, Bolshevik Federation Communist Partymembers, and various other officials. Then he speaks.

"We have prepared some new proposals for the Comunist International. Proposals that we beleive will set the Comintern on a safer path of both discovery and secrecy. While the world continues to speed through scientific and technological revolution it should be the policy of this Comintern to maintain a competative edge on such advancements. This is why I propose, with great hopes, the Communist International Space Program. The details for such a program are complex and have not yet been mapped out by Bolshevik Federation, but hopefully with some healthy discussion and debate we can, in the near future, acheive a fully-functioning, and successfull Comintern space program.

Now, as you all take that into consideration, we present an additional proposal. Just as a Space program would pursue a productive path, our next proposal is in reguards to Comintern defence. As international tensions rise, social problems boil and spill over, environemtal danger affects all, and the hostility of "anti-comintern" nations we must move progressively and swiftly on a more organized path of Comintern defence, our main reason however, should be idiological survival. We prepose a Comintern Intelligence Agency. This would ensure a competitive edge in the ever-expanding world of international espionage and war. This would allow the Comintern to get an early waring of comming conflicts, and drastically lessen chances of espionage within our own pact and nations.

Also, a note concerning the the revised Comintern constitution. We agree with the changes but propose, in regaurds to the sections: "War" & "Mutual Defence". In an effort to decrease the likelihood of more global conflict Comintern members should be able to choose wether or not to deploy their forces to a war started by a fellow signatory. This would stop the Comintern from becoming a "Military Machine" like the Axis Pact proposed by the USC. But in regaurds to defence, all members should aid the attacked signatory.

In closing, I would like to announce the creation of the Bolshevik Federation's Foreign Relations Committee. Leading the F.R.C. will be Elizaveta Krasivaya. She will major head diplomatic, and major foreign affair missions."

Elizaveta Krasivaya Head of Bolshevik Federation Foreign Relations Committee

In reality the Bolshevik Foreign Relations Committee is very poorly organized and lack much structure or organization yet. So in the scramble to assemble the Committee, that Elizaveta Krasivaya had been pressing for for months. She beleives on a softer stance on Bolshevik foreign relations and has informally been suggesting this to Premier Orlov. Elizaveta Krasivaya is the former Head of Bolshevik Federation Intelligence Group, and reportedly resigned her position due to her disagreeing with certain measures taken for interrogation and possible torture. Elizaveta's "lighter" stance on certain topics has won her many enamies within the BFCP, but her persistance, charisma and beauty has allowed her to rise among their ranks.

OOC: btw Krasivaya means beauty in Russian :P
