There have been several articles within the bosses’ intellectual rags over the past few weeks showing concern for capitalism. This concern continues with FA’s current issue discussing capitalism’s growing inequality.
Inequality is indeed increasing almost everywhere in the postindustrial capitalist world. But despite what many on the left think, this is not the result of politics, nor is politics likely to reverse it, for the problem is more deeply rooted and intractable than generally recognized. Inequality is an inevitable product of capitalist activity, and expanding equality of opportunity only increases it — because some individuals and communities are simply better able than others to exploit the opportunities for development and advancement that capitalism affords. Despite what many on the right think, however, this is a problem for everybody, not just those who are doing poorly or those who are ideologically committed to egalitarianism — because if left unaddressed, rising inequality and economic insecurity can erode social order and generate a populist backlash against the capitalist system at large.
It is telling that the US ruling class fears for their system even though there is no Communist Party led working class ready to challenge them for state power. The bosses fear the fact that the growing inequality that benefits their class will create the animosity in the working class that will eventually lead to uprisings and their demise. They have a good reason to fear, because it is only the lack of a mass international communist movement that is keeping them in power.
The bosses will do their best to infiltrate and divide the Communist movement that they know will oppose them. They will use lies like calling us racist for opposing Black Nationalism or sexist for rejecting identity politics and feminism. They are desperate and will push any lie they can as a mass disinformation campaign to discredit their enemy — the Communist Progressive Labor Party!
Only a communist party with the correct line, immersed in the masses, dedicated to building Communism before, during, and after the revolution, and organizing for the armed struggle can challenge the capitalists for state power and the world.
It wasn’t long ago, historically speaking, that Red led armies defeated the most powerful armies the capitalist class could muster, that guerilla fighters led by moral incentives, not material incentives, challenges and defeated “invincible” armies in South America and Asia. PLP is building a brand new international Communist movement. The bosses know that our movement is their doom.
The PLP will continue to struggle to smash sexism and racism, to bury capitalism, and to sweep systemic inequality into the dustbin of history once and for all. We will make sure that they continue to fear a communist revolution, because they are right to fear us. We are their doom.
