I seen this was already posted but, it didn't show any pictures or posters from previous eras, in a times not to distant past.. So let's begin.

The "Forward" slogan isn't anything new to politics. Wikipedia's article on the Leftists term forward states:

( Same source as above )

The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other leftwing newspapers and publications. For example, Vpered (Russian language for 'Forward') was the name of the publication that Lenin started after having resigned from the Iskra editorial board in 1905 after a clash with Georgi Plekhanov and the Mensheviks.


Just a few examples of the term Forward in Communist/Socialist/Marxist propaganda...these were actual posters, not authentic, but reproductions of originals.

In this example you will see a poster dedicated to Lenin and another poster portraying Stalin and the Forward slogan.

The rest of the posters can be viewed by clicking on the links below

1.Young builders of communism! Forward, to the new success in work and study

2.Great Leap Forward (1956-1960)

3.Strike the battle drum of the Great Leap Forward (Sorry for the error, hit the wrong page)

4.Ride the wind and cleave the waves to realize a Leap Forward

5."Let's march Forward under the banner of Mao Zedong!"

6.Sing revolutionary war songs with fervor, and move Forward in victory.

7.Move fast Forward! Construct and protect the Motherland.

8.The motherland doing a leap Forward.

Other examples:

Democrat Socialist Perspective: Socialism the way forward

Communist China:The Great Leap Forward

UK Socialist Party:The way forward for anti-capitalsim

Marxists.org: Can we go forward if we fear to go towards socialism

Marxists.org: Forward to socialist revolution

General George S. Patton also had many quotes about moving forward. Was Patton a communist? All of the business leaders I work with use the term, "moving forward" when we discuss our plans to make sure a certain problem is not repeated in the future. Oh wait, I'm moving us off topic. Lets all get back to our political agenda of arguing about Obama's plan to dominate the world.

Hmmm.

Forward (generic name of socialist publications)


The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other leftwing newspapers and publications[1][2], denoting an urge for progress.[3] Vorwärts! (German for 'Forward', with an exclamation point as part of the name) was a revolutionary German emigré publication issued in Paris in the mid-1840s. Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels were amongst the contributors to the magazine. Whilst the publication was short-lived, it had a lasting impact and served as an inspiration for later socialist press outlets. A second Vorwärts (without exclamation point) was founded in 1876, being an organ of the Social Democratic Party of Germany and with Wilhelm Liebknecht as its first editor.[4] In the years before the First World War, the term 'vorwärts' was almost monopolized in German political discourse by the Social Democrats, and the name was used for various publications and organizations.[5]

The German Vorwärts inspired socialists around the world.[6] The Yiddish daily Forverts, founded in New York in 1897, was named after the German publications (which were well-known amongst Jewish radical circles at the time). Rather than using the Yiddish word faroys, a transliteration of the German name was used.[4] Another prominent example has been Vpered (Russian language for 'Forward'), the publication that Lenin started after having resigned from the Iskra editorial board in 1905 after a clash with Georgi Plekhanov and the Mensheviks.[1] The name did however fall out of fashion in Russia after the October Revolution. A Volga German Bolshevik newspaper named Vorwärts was re-baptized Nachrichten as the Soviet leadership wished to avoid associations with the German Social Democratic organ.[7]
