Animal Farm? Gogo Farm? Villa Farm? The Main Characters
When Bismarck was asked in 1899 about his thoughts for the coming century, he said that Germany would be in a great position because Russia was disintegrating. He identified the biggest problem facing Russia : the sudden burst of educated youths who could no find jobs and the attempts by the establishment to rapidly reform and modernise. He said education was raising the expectations of the public to a level that could not be supported by the traditional economic organisation of Russia .
He said that the best strategy for the Bolsheviks or the Communists was to prevent the Tsar from modernising the country. In this he agreed with Karl Marx. The best way to defeat a government is to not give it the space to reform. According to Karl Marx and Lenin, if a capitalist system was allowed to resolve its inherent "contradictions" through reform, then the "dialectics" will not work-in other words, in order for the Bolsheviks to defeat the government, the Bolsheviks must first increase the hardship and frustration of the people. There were enough anarchists and other extremists who were willing to shed blood.
Ditto Maldives ?
When Nerd Dajjal was asked in 2002 by Sikka about his thoughts for tourism in the future, he said that Sri Lanka would be in a great position because Maldives was disintegrating. He identified the biggest problem facing Maldives : the sudden burst of educated youths who could no find jobs and the attempts by the establishment to rapidly reform and modernise. He said education was raising the expectations of the public to a level that could not be supported by the traditional economic organisation of Maldives .
He said that the best strategy for Sikka or MDP thugs was to prevent the President from modernising the country. In this he agreed with Karl Marx. The best way to defeat a government is to not give it the space to reform. According to Karl Marx and Lenin, if a capitalist system was allowed to resolve its inherent "contradictions" through reform, then the "dialectics" will not work-in other words, in order for the MDP to defeat the government, the MDP must first increase the hardship and frustration of the people. There were enough anarchists and other extremists who were willing to shed blood.
Bloodthirsty MDP and Bolshevik Tactics
If you look at MDP, they are following the same tactics as the Bolsheviks. That is why Gogo, Sappe, Anni, Nerd Dajjal, Sikka, and others are calling for a tourism boycott of Maldives-not to make the government suffer, but to make the people suffer. That is why they glorify the bloodbath that took place at the Winter Palace , and continue to fan yobs from the street. MDP is as bloodthirsty and as fratricidal as the anarchists who attacked the Winter Palace .
Animal Farm and Patrice Lumumba University You have all heard about Animal Farm, a political satire, about a revolution that overthrew a modernising leader, a revolution that was fanned by fanatical anarchists who were educated but jobless, a revolution that promised to provide a heaven on earth, a revolution that quickly became the Soviet monster, a killing machine which went on purging millions of citizens, and establishing Patrice Lumumba University to spread revolution and insurrection to the Third World.
MDP's Russian Connections: Leninism without Marxism?
Many MDP operatives and their sympathisers have Soviet links, from Dr Munavar, who is a Russian lawyer to Ali Faiz, who trained as a pilot in Soviet Russia. Gogo himself and his brother Dr Samad, a close friend of Rado Zahir, also studied in Patrice Lumumba, as did the brother-in-law of Dr Waheed, whose other brother-in-law is a specialist in Molotov cocktails.
MDP and JVP
In our part of the world, the Patrice Lumumba inspired insurrection was first tried in Ceylon in 1971, when Marxist-Leninist cadres of JVP led by Rohana Wijeweera launched co-ordinated arson attacks on police stations throughout the island on the same day. The country was saved with the intervention of Indian troops.
This is exactly what the MDP ands its yobs want to do. They tried this last year. That was the pilot project. It was a success. They tried to replicate it on 13 August. Emergency was declared when some of the cells dispersed to the town to torch the police precincts. Many of the MDP generalissimos like Gogo were in Sri Lanka when Rohana Wijeweera tried to launch his own Marxist-Leninist revolution. This is what MDP and their sympathisers have in mind.
MDP and Animal Farm
This is all so very Animal Farm. This is all so very Marxist-Leninist, by people who do not understand Marxism or Leninism. The MDP Bolsheviks all feature in Animal Farm. Go pick up your old copy of Animal Farm. Dust off the cover and read on. Don't you see how these MDP blokes resemble the characters described by George Orwell in Animal Farm?
The Gogo Farm?
In Animal Farm, Mr. Jones is the farmer. Led by the pigs, the animals decide on an uprising against Mr. Jones, who eventually runs away, leaving the governance and management of the farm in the hands of the animals, chiefly the pigs. Essentially a parody of the Communists, Karl Marx, who dreams of communism, is the Old Major, Snowball, another pig, is Lenin, while Napoleon, also another pig, is Stalin, and Squealer is Trotsky. But no more of this: even a name like Stalin is too much of a credit to the likes of MDP.
The Old Major
An old and venerable pig on the farm. He is the animal who inspires everyone else to dream of being freed from slavery under the humans. Wouldn't this be Sikka himself, having staged coups against every government? Snowball A pig, he is one of the leaders of the rebellion. Snowball is highly intelligent and persuasive, a brilliant orator, and is always dreaming of ways and means of selfimprovement. Anyone remember Lenin or Dr Munavir? (an anagram of "Vladmir", the original name of Lenin)
Napoleon A pig, along with Snowball the other main leader of the rebellion. He is more adept than Snowball at building alliances among the other animals. He is also more politically astute and deceitful than his rival. Wouldn't that be so like Zaki?Squealer A pig. Like Snowball, a brilliant and persuasive orator, but unlike Snowball, much less inclined to take the lead with his own ideas.
Gogo Latheef, one without a mind of his own? Or is it Ibra? Boxer A carthorse. Enormously strong, most of the ambitious building projects undertaken on Animal Farm depend on his physical strength and his unquestioning dedication to the rebellion. Dull-witted, he is easily manipulated by the more intelligent animals. Poor Gasim! If only money could buy brains!
Clover Another carthorse. Unquestioningly loyal to the rebellion, though even she has doubts at times. Zuhaira, sometimes of SHE, other times of MDP.
Muriel A goat, one of the more intelligent animals on the farm outside of the pigs. She is a great friend of Clover. Is Anthu Najeeb intelligent enough? Is anyone in MDP intelligent enough?
Benjamin A donkey. Stubborn and reserved, he is one of the very few animals on the farm who does not actively support the rebellion, though he does not condemn it either. A cynic. He is devoted to Boxer. This has to be ADK Nashid.
Moses A raven. He seduces many of the animals on the farm with tales of SugarCandy mountain, a mythical place in the clouds where animals go after they die. Rado Zahir? Fareed?
Who is Mr Jones? Like the bloody Soviets, the MDP will fail, because of an inherent contradiction in their own lot. After all, who is Mr. Jones, the owner of the farm against which the initial rebellion of the animals is directed? It is after all the capitalists. So who is our Mr Jones? Is it not Villa Inc? It is. Indeed, how can people be free when all the wealth is in the hands of one man? How can people be free when one man, and one man alone, owns the lion's share of resorts, import licenses, seaplane fleets, marine transport fleets, shipping fleets, fishing licenses, franchises, etc? The Gogo Farm will not succeed in the face of the Villa Farm.
