There’s so much work that needs to be done in this world, yet capitalism can’t afford to hire us to do the work. There is 51% youth unemployment in Greece! Capitalism has failed them like it has continued to fail the working class. Over half the youth are unemployed while the working class needs so much to be done. Greece was the birthplace of “Western Civilization” with its ancient slave state of Sparta and Athens, and with the assault on it by the world’s capitalist class, massive working class anger, and even some armed struggle, the irony of it being the birthplace of a new society is quite a delicious irony. PL friends in Greece and Spain have many opportunities to build the Party.
Obama’s hypocritical broken heart over the women and children that the young US soldier killed in Afghanistan just highlight how much of a liar he is. I guess all of the women and children murdered by US smart bombs and shrapnel from cluster bombs don’t count as tragedy. It must be that hundreds of villagers being murdered at wedding parties by a bomb dropping on them from a stealth predator drone is just par for the course of imperialist war. Apparently, it’s only an embarrassing and tragic event when a soldier empties his clip of bullets into people. If he had manipulated a joystick like some sanitized video game and then pushed the button to blast them from an air-conditioned bunker under a beautiful blue Arizona sky, well then, that’s just the tragic cost of war.
All the radioactive depleted uranium dust blowing down from the mountaiontops and causing unknown horrors to the working class in Afghanistan is a tragedy that is just the cost of war for conquest and strategic oil pipelines. That fascist piece of garbage lying puppet Obama had the audacity to say that the young soldier will be punished while he has death squads killing union leaders in Columbia, while he has Martelli recruiting children to fight replete with pink shirts as part of the ton ton mercouts return, while he is helping to drive how many thousands of workers out of work in order to make a more competitive workforce like his great “success” in Detroit.
The hundreds of thousands of workers taking to the streets in Greece and Spain point towards the path of resistance. Fascism’a first battleground was Spain, and now the need for Communist revolution is more urgent than ever. Obama’s alligator tears should outrage us as much as Butcher al Assad’s crimes or any other of the bourgeoisie’s thugs. They clearly illustrate the lengths the capitalists will go to in order to protect their state power. And, this should create an urgency within all of us to tear down their state by building the PLP and starting an armed insurrection for real communist worker’s power.
