Marhaenism, ever upward, never go down! : amanat gemblengan presiden Sukarno pada pendidikan Kader Pelopor Marhaenis pada tanggal 24 dan 25 Maret 1965 di Basketball-Hall Gelora “Bung Karno” Senajan. (Djakarta : Tema, 1965)
Sukarno, the first President of the Indonesian Republic, was a charismatic leader with a revolutionary bent. He was renowned for his
fiery speeches and impassioned, inspirational rhetoric. In this speech, Sukarno
presents his social vision of Marhaenism. Marhaenism was a term coined by
Sukarno to refer to the Indonesian economic system of many poor farmers, who
owned their own land and farming tools but were not of a privileged class. The
word is derived from Marhaen, supposedly the name of a poor farmer who Sukarno
met while cycling through the countryside.
The Southeast Asia Pamphlet collection contains a large
number of speeches by Sukarno, the first President of the Indonesian Republic.
