New Revolutionary Thought is a revolutionary communist ideology that advocates the creation of world communism through a system of a small number of highly centralised intelligentsia.

New Revolutionary Thought is currently only adopted by the Dale Communist Party and the Unity Bloc, both of whom are present in the People's Republic of Dale.

History

The intelligentsia, best described as a status class of educated individuals engaged in both theoretical analysis and practical politics, have had a long and complex relationship with communism. Leading figures such as Marx, Engels and Lenin were all highly educated, each releasing fundamental works concerning various topics - their works now form the core of Marxist-Leninist theory.

Nonetheless, intellectuals were also persecuted, by way of deportation in Soviet Russia (Philosophers' ships), forced labour in Gulags, and perhaps most famously in the Khmer Rouge as part of the Cambodian Genocide.

The Revolutions of 1989 and the eventual collapse of the Soviet Union led to a worldwide decline in communist movements. Since then, communism has failed to significantly rebound in any meaningful way.

As a result, several leaders of the Dale Communist Party sought to create a distinct variant of communism, which encouraged revolution through highly centralised units of intellectuals, capable of revitalising ideology and infiltrating important sectors of society such as the media.

New Revolutionary Thought has become a central tenant of the DCP and the pro-government party, the Unity Bloc. It has heavily influenced Dalean foreign policy, which is marked strongly by isolationism and an unwillingness to territorially expand.

Political Parties

New Revolutionary Thought is most passionately espoused by the Dale Communist Party, the ruling party of the People's Republic of Dale. The party is made up entirely of students from the University of Oxford - as is the entire micronation; as a result, the DCP quickly embraced NRT as an affirmation of its special role in leading modern communist thought.

The Unity Bloc, a democratic socialist party loyal to the DCP has also accepted New Revolutionary Thought as part of its party platform.
