I’m getting irritated with the endless drone, “forward”. Yes, while “forward” has a special connotation of Marxism, as Jonah Goldberg points out it fits the generic “Progressive” mindset.
Still, Marxist terminology has infected our political language and mindset in ways that are not always obvious.
So, for fun, some select Soviet propaganda posters from this guy’s amazing collection, some of which is for sale:
Our era calls – forward!
The five year plan calls – forward!
More below the fold…
The homeland, the [communist] Party and time call:
Full effort to the socialistic competition! For our soviet homeland! We will safely protect the conquests of socialism, fulfill the decisions of the 27th Congress of the KPSS. Communists forward! The pride of your troop is also your pride!
Forward, towards new victories under the emblem of the great Party of Lenin and Stalin! January 1st, 1937 – the 20th year of the Revolution! Hurrah to the Stalin’s Constitution! We will finish the 2nd 5-year-plan with victory!
We shall go forward. Step higher with energy and unity of will.
