While the system wants us to focus on pride month (because it is totally rebelling against the system when you are backed by every corporation, bank, and Western government) today June 1st is Pancasila Day in Indonesia.
On June 1st, 1945 Indonesia’s founding President Sukarno gave his first iterations of what would become the Indonesia’s national ideology Pancasila. The ideology would center around the following principals, Belief in the Almighty God, Just and civilized humanity, The Unity of Indonesia, Democracy guided by the inner wisdom in the unanimity arising out of deliberations among representatives, Social justice for the whole of the people of Indonesia. It was a mix of nationalism, religious identity be it Muslim or Christian, and belief in the common struggle against hostile foreign influences. Due to how big Indonesia is at 735,358 square miles, being roughly 87% Muslim 11% Christian, having over 1,700 ethnic groups, and 300 languages spoken in addition to Indonesian, this ideology is actually what is able to work in Indonesia.
On August 17th, 1945 Indonesia declared independence from Dutch rule and a constitution establishing Pancasila as the ideology of the Indonesian state was ratified. However the allies were not exactly happy and the Netherlands intended to resume colonial control over Indonesia.
During the first part of the Indonesian War for Independence which Sukarno led the fight for, it was a period known as the Bersiap where Dutch and Japanese occupation loyalists faced frequent attacks and violence. In Java the support for the new republic was strongest but as you got further away from Jakarta, the Dutch and Japanese loyalists were more strong.
In September of 1945 the British sent forces on the behalf of the Dutch who had been so badly weakened by WW2, to try to restore Dutch colonial control in Indonesia, till the Dutch themselves could assemble a full proper force to wage a war against the Indonesian republican forces.
The biggest battles often occurred early in the war in places such as Surabaya when the British in three weeks seized control and occupied the city till November 1946. The British were better trained and stronger but it served as the sort of rallying cry needed for Indonesian republican forces.
In November 1946 when British forces left the Dutch sent tens of thousands of troops in and the British got out of an unsustainable and unpopular fight.
In the summer of 1947 however the Dutch overstepped with its offensive in Java and Sumatra which while successful, their backs were then put against the wall by a defacto blockade by Australia while the Soviet Union, Australia, India, and America started to pressure the Dutch to get out.
The Dutch however kept the adventurism going and after an offensive called Operation Crow, the Americans at that point grew fed up and threatened to cut off the Marshall Plan.
At the end of 1949 after the diplomatic pressure and the aggressive guerrilla warfare by the Indonesian republican forces led by Sukarno, the Dutch withdrew and recognized independence of Indonesia.
The period after the Dutch withdraw from the territory of Indonesia, there was a lot of instability due to the clashes between the factions in the country.
Sukarno was very popular as he had nationalized Dutch companies and had crushed the PRRI-Permesta rebels and in order to secure that stability the policy of Guided Democracy came into effect in Indonesia.
The Presidential system of government returned in Indonesia, Indonesian socialism was in place, command economy was in place, and a strong emphasis on Indonesian identity was at the core of Sukarno’s governance.
In 1960 Sukarno started to play the Communist Party off against the military which wasn’t exactly friendly to him.
He was able to increase Indonesia’s importance with the successful bid to host the 1962 Asian Games and many sporting stadiums were built in order to host them. It turned out to be a success for him.
Indonesia was hit by International Olympic Committee sanctions due to Sukarno’s policy to exclude Taiwan and “Israel.” In retaliation Sukarno held successfully, the Games of New Emerging Force (GANEFO) in November 1963 and it had 2,700 athletes from 51 countries.
Sukarno played a key role in the modernization of the capital Jakarta with the major construction projects throughout the city.
For most of his tenure he was able to play the West and the Soviets off against each other but then when the confrontation with Malaysia happened and the British and US backed Malaysia, then Indonesia turned much more towards a bloc containing China, North Vietnam, North Korea, and Cambodia.
He would even pull Indonesia out of the United Nations in early 1965 as the UN had showed to be an imperialist globalist cabal who had no interest in benefiting his nation.
On October 1st 1965 however when communist factions assassinated six Indonesian generals, that would lead to a purge of communist sympathizers in the armed forces. It is important to note that when Sukarno was getting closer with Communist nations it was mainly China at a time during the Sino-Soviet split when Beijing was in the early stages of more alignment with the West.
After this Sukarno became increasingly isolated as the communists, the armed forces, and the Islamists were all against him.
In 1967 he would be overthrown in a CIA backed coup by Suharto and he would be put under house arrest where his health rapidly deteriorated.
Sukarno was a great leader who did an enormous amount of good for his nation and his people and he was a great leader of the struggle for independence. He unfortunately became victim of difficult geopolitical circumstances, Western and Communist betrayals, and general globalist hatred for him.
