☯ Emancipation Theology: Pan-Asia's Official "Religion"

Postby Pan-Asiatic States » Sun May 26, 2019 2:11 am

Feel free to use this thread to ask questions or make comments about Emancipation Theology. I greatly appreciate your input.

Emancipation Theology

    From Proletaripedia, the People's Encyclopedia!
Emancipation Theology is the academic term for the numerous cults of personality which have organized themselves into the national religion of the Pan-Asiatic States. There is no official term or demonym to refer to oneself as a follower of the philosophy due to the sheer nature of its existence. Neither are there social or political roles which "head" it. It is a not an organized religion, or even an actual religion per se, but is usually treated like one by foreign critiques and even the Pan-Asiatic government itself.

Described by former Secretary-General Hồ Ngọc Quang as "the revolutionary spirit of all Asian proletarians expressed through actively worshiping the indifference of an individual to the collective, and treating it as a form of Communistic ascendancy". Emancipation Theology's general postulate is extreme patriotism to the state, i.e, active participation in Party gatherings, regularly attending local and federal political discourse in Community Centers, autonomously donating excess income, and, uniquely enough, upholding democracy. The cult, so to say, is also marked by the intensity of the people's feelings for and devotion to their leaders, and the key role played by a Confucianized ideology of familism both in maintaining the cult and thereby in sustaining the regime of the Asian Communist Party itself.

Emancipation Theology is a large part of the ideology of the Pan-Asiatic States and the uniquely Communist characteristics played in an individual's life whilst living in the Pan-Asiatic States. On a smaller-scale, the religion's vision is the abolition of difference between proletarian and State. That is, also to say, the difference between man and fellow man. It expresses the radical, and raw, equality that the States wish to achieve.

Emancipation Theology was formed in unison to the Pan-Asiatic States, and was officially recognized by the Second Administration as the State-Religion in 1999, when the Pyongyang Conventions formally organized itself like a proper philosophy, with beatitudes and rules. Officially, the cult is an extension of the Party's regime, and in no way a disembodiment of Neo-Maoism. What separates the two, is that Emancipation Theology focuses on the values an individual must uphold, whilst Neo-Maoism focuses on the more Federal political aspects of Pan-Asiatic Socialism.

Following the practices of the Cult are not compulsory, nor enforced by the State, and some members choose to follow the Cult whilst pursuing other religions such as Islam and Catholicism. According to many dissidents of the system, however, these members of society are usually looked down upon and are often driven to self-euthanasia.

Terminology

The term itself can be attributed back to early Strasserite authors who'd fled to Japan in order to escape the recently-installed Soviet regime in Germany. In his book The Emancipation-Theology of the Soviet Union, Strasserite-Anarchist Diethard Gansz referred to the cult-like praise of Lenin during his death as "an obliteration of the individual", paranoid that the revolution in Russia may remain a dictatorship by the politburo for decades to come.

The term itself would later be recanted when various critics of the Pan-Asiatic States commented on the religion-like worship of rural citizens to the Asian Communist Party.

Though many Soviet Marxists generally view the term collectivist as a bourgeois tool for associating Socialist thought with the complete destruction of established social values, rather than the simple economic democracy it narrowly represents, revolutionaries in Asia during the Second and Third Pacific Wars knowingly embraced it as to differentiate the "Asian style of living" to the more Western, Imperialistic values that Japan masked itself behind. Popular propagandists tended to view Japan as a puppet-state to isolationist America and Britain, seeing Japan as the force of evil eradicating Asian culture. Insurgents therefore saw themselves as the true restorationists against the selfish "individualistic" Imperialist-Capitalism.

It should come to no surprise then, that the term itself would only increase in popularity as Soviet-Asiatic tensions sparked the 1992 Cold War; and the "Emancipation Theology" became the rallying call for social conservatism. The 1995 Cultural Revolution saw only greater usage of the terminology, using it to justify the atrocities as the "destruction of the old society".

Background


The Pyongyang Conventions

In 1999, prominent advocates of both Neo-Maoism and Juche convened to discuss marrying strong-man Juche thought with the ultraegalitarian sentiments expressed by many of the Party's top officials to further solidify and clarify the much more supranationalist values the States held in contrast to the more globalist intentions of the Soviet Union. In the end, the conventions instead procured prototypes for practices which would ensure that the masses maintained a revolutionary mindset "impenetrable by false reactionary agendas". These talks would conclude in unifying enthusiasts of proletarian leaders such as Kim-Il Sung, Mao Zedong, and Lenin, etc. under a State-Sanctioned devotion.

Five advocacies for how one could be honorable by the Cult's standards were established:

  • The Asian Communist Party must be the only legitimate vanguard party for the workers, in accordance with Leninism, and adversaries against the advancement of the Party are non-aligned with the Cult.
  • The honorable proletarian must constantly study Communist literature, but also devote him/herself to the betterment of the country through daily, practical acts of charity.
  • The honorable proletarian must have a revolutionary mindset by actively participating in the Party's agendas, including worship gatherings, and other both local and federal matters of the States.
  • The honorable proletarian must serve the people by showing exemplary sympathy and respect for heroes both past and present, dead and alive; as well as those with less and the incapacitated.
  • The honorable proletarian must uphold the values of the nation, including both its humble and Democratic nature, remaining vigilant of reactionaries who constantly, and flamboyantly, boast as heroes whilst undermining the hearts and minds of the people, constantly infiltrating our Federation.

Reformation of Asian Communist Youth League

The Asian Communist Youth League's structure was reformed in 2001 to even further localize the Party's agendas, and with these reforms, came incorporation of the Cult's beliefs into young initiates of the revolution. It became compulsory to join the Youth League until the age of 12, whence you could choose to further pursue a career into the Senior League, and eventually maybe even the Party itself, or to abandon the cult entirely.

As Emancipation Theology is not an organized religion per se, its practices vary from state to state. These practices were born from cultural and religious devotions, and their reactionary interpretations, which were rebranded rather than abolished after the resulting fallout of the 1995 Cultural Revolution, which had brought social oppression against minorities- both racial and religious. Through the federal government making its ammeds, many concepts predating both Pacific Wars made appeals to embrace the state-values of Socialism by reforming their religious sects; e.g Catholic devotees formed minority factions within the Asian Communist Party, Taoists saw Socialism as their political heir, &c.

Regional Interpretations



"Classical" Cults of Personality

It is generally accepted that influential Socialist leaders and writers, usually of the 20th Century, the likes of Luxembourg, Lenin, Stalin, Marx, and Engels, etc. are "immortal saints" of the Revolution. These saints are also treated as such. The Obliteration of the Self remains in vague conflict as to the fate to which any of these saints are actually to be revered, and it is generally agreed upon that each is to his own. Some Faith denominations believe that these saints are reincarnations of their very gods, whilst some believe them to be mere instruments in god's greater plan.

Christian Socialism

Christian socialism is a form of religious socialism based on the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Many Christian socialists believe capitalism to be idolatrous and rooted in greed, which some Christian denominations consider a mortal sin. Christian socialists identify the cause of inequality to be the greed that they associate with capitalism.

Despite these sentiments, The Old Testament itself had divided perspectives on the issue of poverty. One part of the Jewish tradition held that poverty was the judgement of God upon the wicked while viewing prosperity as a reward for the good, stating that "The righteous has enough to satisfy his appetite, but the belly of the wicked suffers want".

Christian Socialists believe in a radical redistribution of goods, according to them, attested by the prophets. Amos emphasized the need for "justice" and "righteousness" that is described as conduct that emphasizes love for those who are poor and to oppose oppression and injustice towards the poor. The prophet Isaiah (759–694 B.C.) to whom is attributed the first thirty-nine chapters of the Book of Isaiah ("Proto-Isaiah"), followed upon Amos' themes of justice and righteousness involving the poor as necessary for followers of God, denouncing those who do not do these things.

Though the following itself predated the Japanese occupation, the opposition by the American provisional Second Republic highly suppressed the movement. Many Marxist historians believe this was to promote the American Protestantism. Nevertheless, the movement gained traction after the war. The Catholic Church in Asia was abolished in the place of Emancipation Theology, and subsequently, new archbishops, bishops, and even a new organization of the Catholic Church were established- claiming to be the true Socialist successor of the inefficient, theocratic Vatican.

Rizalista Cults

Perhaps one of the most bizarre forms which the Emancipation Theology recognized during the Pyongyang Conventions were the Rizalista religious movements- referring to the new religious movement and a form of Folk Catholicism adopted by a number of ethnic religious groups in the Philippines that believe in the actual divinity of Jose Rizal, the Philippines' de facto national hero. Many of these sects or religious movements believe that Rizal is still living and that he will deliver his followers from oppression and poverty. Rizalist groups have differing views on the divinity of Jose Rizal. Some believe that he is God himself, some believe that Rizal was the second son of God, the reincarnation of Christ. Some of these groups also identify Rizal as the god of the pre-Spanish Malay religion. Some only see as Rizal as a spiritual guide. Leaders of the sect often claim that key people in the Philippine Revolution including Rizal himself were reincarnations of the Virgin Mary. Many of these radical groups claim that the only key to salvation is by joining their worship, and thus, the Obliteration of the Self. Modern followers of the group also believe that Rizal prophesied the founding of the Pan-Asiatic States through his left-leaning, anti-colonial writings.

The Rizalist religious movement ranged from colorums which were prevalent during the 1920s up to the 1930s to Philippine Benevolent Missionary Association, which was led by Ruben Ecleo. Among these movements are the Iglesia Sagarada Familia (lit. Church of the Holy Family), Lipi ni Rizal (lit. Clan of Rizal), Pilipinas Watawat (lit. Philippine Flag), the Molo, and the Iglesia ng Watawat ng Lahi (lit. Church of the Race's Flag).

Ho Chi Minh

The former capital of South Vietnam, Saigon, was officially renamed Hồ Chí Minh City on 2 July 1976 by the former Communist Party of Vietnam-controlled, war-time National Assembly of Vietnam. However, the name provokes strong anti-Communist feeling in a substantial number of Vietnamese. Many Vietnamese, especially those living abroad, continue to refer to the city as Sài Gòn in rejection of the new Communist-imposed name.

His embalmed body is on display in Hanoi in a granite mausoleum modeled after Lenin's Tomb in Moscow. Streams of people queue each day, sometimes for hours, to pass his body in silence. This is reminiscent of other Communist leaders like Vladimir Lenin, Mao Zedong, Kim il-sung and Kim Jong-il. The Hồ Chí Minh Museum in Hanoi is dedicated to his life and work. He is also glorified to a religious status as an "immortal saint" by the Asian Communist Party.

Publications about Hồ Chí Minh non-celibacy are banned in Vietnam because the party maintains that he had no romantic relationship with anyone in his lifetime in order to portray a puritanical image of him to the Vietnamese public and advance the image of him as "the father of the [Communist] revolution" and of a "celibate married only to the cause of revolution". William Duiker's Ho Chi Minh: A Life (2000) presents much information on Ho's relationships. The Pan-Asiatic government requested substantial cuts in the official Vietnamese translation of Duiker's book, which was refused. In 2002, the Asian Communist Party suppressed a review of Duiker's book in the Far Eastern Economic Review.

Mao Zedong

Mao was referred to as "the great leader Chairman Mao" (伟大领袖毛主席) in public and he was entitled "the great leader, the great supreme commander, the great teacher and the great helmsman" (伟大的领袖、伟大的统帅、伟大的导师、伟大的舵手) during the 1995 Cultural Revolution. Badges and books of his quotations were mass-produced. Most people were required to recite the Quotations of Chairman Mao and printed material at that time usually quoted Mao's words in bold, as well as in the preface. The Loyalty dance (忠字舞) was also introduced during the 1995 Cultural Revolution.

The cult of personality continued for a short time after Mao's death. His successor, Chairman Hua Guofeng also practiced the cult of personality, and was later referred to by the Asian Communist Party as "the brilliant leader Chairman Hua" (英明领袖华主席). Wartime Reforms in 1978 led to a deconstruction of Mao's cult status, but were eventually restored by the Russian Provisional Government. Many in the Asian Communist Party are still averse to a Mao cult of personality style of rule, lest it recreate the chaos of the 1995 Cultural Revolution; whilst others, including many foreign diplomats of the States, remain stout loyalists of the "Great Cultural Victory".

The rise and consolidation of power under Secretary-General Garrick Mensenares has given way to a return to Mao-style personality cults centered around himself in state media and propaganda messages. Many fear this to be dictatorial, whilst others see it only rightful.

North Korean Juche Cult

The North Korean cult of personality surrounding its political dynasty, the Kim family, has existed in North Korea for decades and can be found in many examples of North Korean culture. Although not acknowledged by the Pan-Asiatic government, many defectors and Western visitors state there are often stiff penalties for those who criticize or do not show "proper" respect for the regime. Many also believe that the sustained "democratic" regime of the Kim family have been manipulated by political sabotage. The States' official stance is that all elections prior have not been rigged in any way, shape, or form, but strong evidence concludes otherwise. The personality cult began soon after Kim Il-sung took power in 1948, and was greatly expanded after his death in 1994.

Juche remains influential within the ranks of the Asian Communist Party, as radicals, both internally and externally have called for the abolition of Democracy entirely in order to combat reactionaries to the fullest. The minority faction, despite their flamboyant announcements, have not gained traction; and the Federal Government remains wary of their organization.

Not necessarily, only slightly. Think of a slightly more strained Sino-Soviet relationship. Pan-Asiatic citizens still recognize that Soviets, the people, are not necessarily responsible for the nuclear bombing of Manila, Tokyo, and Singapore. In the end, they're still comrades in an ideological struggle against the West.

Status of Emancipation Theology within your nation
Emancipation Theology is legal and not banned within the United Kingdom. Whilst there are noticeable difficulties with its presence in the United Kingdom due to latter’s imperialist activities and atrocities in Asia during the age of the Brytish Empire, the government has not considered Emancipation Theology enough of a threat to warrant criminalisation.
  • Are there followers of Emancipation Theology within your nation?:
    Yes. Followers of Emancipation Theology are more often than not of Han Chinese descent and/or origin. Strangely, most followers are native-born persons of Han Chinese descent, as immigrants from China are usually dissidents and oppose the communist regime of China.
  • What are your nation's Regional Interpretations of Emancipation Theology?:
    Emancipation Theology in the United Kingdom most resembles the Chinese variants of Emancipation Theology, but more European-minded individuals have tried to adapt Emancipation Theology for Caucasians in Europe and the Anglosphere. These sorts of persons are usually Eurofederalists and hardline communists.
  • History of Emancipation Theology in your nation:
    Emancipation Theology came to the United Kingdom in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. It was brought over by Asian communist immigrants, Brytish communists and Asian media. Since then it has grown, but it remains minuscule in comparison to other philosophies and religious affiliations such as Christianity, Islam, atheism and so on.
  • Official governmental stance:
    The government does not maintain an official stance on Emancipation Theology. It is believed by some that Prime Minister White-Patel is at least interested in it, and some mock his Asiophilia by saying he is soft on it because the affiliation is Asian in origin.
  • Opinion of the Majority: The majority of those who are aware of Emancipation Theology are wary of it, whilst the actual majority of the population do not know of it.


OOC Question: I would like to inquire whether Emancipation Theology could be retrofitted for a European or Anglophone culture, and what you believe it may be like.

I mean, essentially, Emancipation Theology just means any kind of quasireligious endeavor to marry Communist ideas with traditional theology. Or, sometimes, creating an entirely different cult-like following, as in the Juche Personality Cult: where the Kims are seen as divinity.

In PAS' universe, while the East is attune to marrying Communism with Taoism/Confucianism, the West often attributes Communism with Catholicism (i.e you cannot serve both God and money).

Status of Emancipation Theology within your nation

  • Are there followers of Emancipation Theology within your nation?: Outside of Busan province (named for a city in South Korea) Emancipation theology is non-existent. Many Korean-Andromedans are descendants of people who fled the Korean peninsula during the Japanese Occupation and the Korean War. Many still have relatives in North Korea.

  • What are your nation's Regional Interpretations of Emancipation Theology?: Our nation's government has little use for it. Our country has devolved many of our basic functions to states.

  • History of Emancipation Theology in your nation: There were a couple of members of the Busan State Council who followed the Juche form of Emancipation theology, but they have long since been out of office.

  • Official governmental stance: The Government is wary of any cult of personality. Our leader is elected every two years from the legislature and can be removed by the legislature if they start to abuse their power.

  • Opinion of the Majority:
Honestly, few of our citizens have given Emancipation Theology much thought.

Are there followers of Emancipation Theology within your nation?: Not in that form. Liberation theology, yes, but not worship of the Asian Communists.

Status of Emancipation Theology within your nation

  • Are there followers of Emancipation Theology within your nation?:
    If there are any, they are underground with the rest of the radical Marxists.


  • What are your nation's Regional Interpretations of Emancipation Theology?:
    Different Parishes consider the Emancipation Theologians to be greater threats than others. In particular, the Oriental influenced Parishes, like Baksu and the scattered Tsao enclaves, have made preventive suppression and destruction of Emancipation Theology


  • History of Emancipation Theology in your nation:
    TurtleShroom's ethnic makeup, among humans, is one-third Asian. This means that TurtleShroom is slowly being influenced by Asian thought and culture, and vice-versa.

    It also means that TurtleShroom is an active target of Pan-Asian infiltration and espionage. For racist reasons (in TurtleShroom's perspective), Asian demographics- especially authoritarians -are always targets by Oriental "influence peddlers". Groups as diverse as mainstream Christian churches with large Asian congregations, the Taiping See, Oriental organized crime fronts, local businesses and newspapers, and especially political parties expressing Oriental thoughts

    Most of TurtleShroom's enormous Asian population, in particular, fled a vast Psychotic Dictatorship called the Greater Imperial Japanese Dystopia, or GEID*, which had very similar ideas towards the Destruction of Self and worship of famous leaders. At their peak, they controlled the square mile equivalent of China, Japan, all of Southeast Asia, Mongolia, Russia's Far Eastern Zone (in Siberia) and Sakhalin, central and southern India, Burma, and Mozambique.

    The heavily interbred GEIJD's East Asian population, consisted of mixed Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Southeast Asian, and Mongolian ancestry makes up the combined "GEIJD Asian race". Outside of GEIJD noblemen and powerful clans and elites (etc.), the Asian ethnicities in the core GEIJD lands are so thoroughly interbred that they all appear to be one single Oriental race.

    In fact, the Asian population of TurtleShroom found such relief and freedom in their newfound home (purely by comparison) that they were remarkably easy to integrate into TurtleShroom society. Stragglers that continue to burn incense to the "People's Comrade Emperor" of the GEIJD, and who worship him, still exist. These are among the men that TurtleShroom is most afraid of embracing Emancipation Theology.

    Worse yet, the autarky and structural doctrines of Juche and the Juche Idea (though not the cult or breaching of human rights) have mainstream support in TurtleShroom. Juche is always referred to as "Shutai" in TurtleShroom, and an active Shutai Party exists and fields candidates in the country. TurtleShroom has partnered with Shutai partisans to crush Emancipation Theology within their ranks, weed out Pan-Asian infiltrators and spies who try to use the mainstream acceptance of Shutai as a vehicle to their cult, and otherwise keep them free of Pan-Asian influence.

    Then there's the Taiping Church. They see a GEIJD dissenter and Chinaman named Hong Xiquing to be the "younger brother of Christ", equal to Jesus, and believe the Holy Spirit corporeally incarnated Himself (as Jesus did) in a Chinaman named Yang Xiquing.

    This direct and overt worship of living, documented people as equals to, and even incarnations of, the Holy Trinity is ripe breeding grounds for the Red Threat to plant its sinister roots in a noble religious movement. Since the affairs of the Skyhooked Crusade, Taiping sermons began to viciously attack Emancipation Theology and its ilk as heresy.

    Like the actual, mainstream Christian denominations, the official Taiping head of religion has condemned it as Satanic idolatry.


  • Official governmental stance:
    "Silencer of the Red Hydra" is an official name and title of the three Tsars of TurtleShroom for a reason.

    Emancipation Theology, like every form of Marxism except mixed democratic socialism, Shutai, and mixed economics, is consider an existential threat to TurtleShroom, in every facet of her existence. Practicing, spreading, supporting, or otherwise promoting or proselytizing Emancipation Theology is a crime in the Great Bountiful Empire and its every Parish.

    The imperial government does not control schooling, and most Parishes have totally private schooling arrangements. Even where there is no government oversight or regulation, schoolhouses and districts refuse to proclaim any glory in the likes of the "saints" of Emancipation Theology. They do, however, tread around the subject of the "People's Comrade Emperor" of the GEIJD, mainly because he lives in exile within TurtleShroom.

    Likewise, Marxism itself is taught as an existensial threat and fundamental evil, founded on greed, avarice, and envy. Indoctrination isn't really needed, considering that TurtleShroom just finished an entire Civil War against Marxism that left over a million creatures dead.


  • Opinion of the Majority:
TurtleShroomers, by and large and in a supermajority, hold the same opinions of Marxism as that listed above. Emancipation Theology, especially its bastardized "Christian" rendition, is hated.
