Neo-Posadism:From Ufology to Survivalism “ The atomic war is going to provoke a true inferno on earth. But it will not impede communism.” J. Posadas During the 1940’s,the ‘Posadist Fourth Internationale’ split off from the main Fourth Internationale.To call the Posadist’s beliefs strange is more than a bit of a understatement.The Posadists believed,among other things, that a nuclear war between the USSR and the US would herald the Socialist revolution,that communist aliens would help them rebuild society,and that dolphins would one day be able to communicate with humans. Copy of the ‘Red Flag’,the Posadist’s newsletter Although Posadism experienced some initial popularity,this would decline with the death of their leader in 1981. By 2010,their membership would number less than 100.By 2025,it was 25,and by 2030 it was 17. The last 17 members of the group held a ‘Posadist Fifth Internationale’ in the Salt Lake City Commune in 2032.In it,they adopted AnarchoSyndicalism as the party’s ideology,purged the ofology and other ‘New Age’ elements from the party(resulting in explusion of 6 people),and focused on a ‘Sustainable,Survivalist,and Ecotopian’ platform,focused on ‘preserving Communism after the Nuclear War’,which they viewed as inevitable.They also made the strategic choice to appeal to exmembers of the The Church of Jesus Christ of LatterDay Saints,as they believed that their new platform would be extremly appealing to them.This would turn out to be the move which saved the party. “Guidelines for the New Posadist” A recruiting pamphlet for the Posadists. When the Posadist left the convention,in July of 2032,there were 11 remaining members.By December,there was 26 members.By January of 2035 there was a estimated 750 members,mostly operating in the SLC Commune,as well as in Bolvia and Argentina. The membership would continue to grow,and by 2050,there was an estimated 30,000 members.At the 2055 Posadist Internationale,the party wrote what would become the ‘bible’ of the NeoPosadist movement;The New Posadist Manifesto. Charles Williams,main author of the New Posadist Manifesto Written mainly by Charles Williams,along with 25 other Party leaders,the Manifesto would outline the NeoPosadists(as they are commonly referred to) ‘Beliefs,Aims,and Tendencies’,and would switch the official party line from ‘Bring out a nuclear war so communism will emerge’ to ‘Preserve Communism in the event of a nuclear war or similarly devastating event’.They also called for the establishment of ‘Large underground bunkers,in which mankind may wait out the apocalypse’ to be built. In 2070,the Posadist Fifth Internationale’ would become part of the International of Anarchist Federations,adding another 50,000 members to the IFA.
