The revolution cannot come quick enough. Though thousands of workers from all over the world are organizing and fighting back but without state power and a Communist Party to take it and provide leadership. More workers have died in Afghanistan, this time by a mining accident that the state’s playing pass the buck with. Meanwhile, the need for maximum profit continues to murder our working class brothers and sisters in Bangladesh.
The U.S. government is still shut down due to the internecine capitalist class rivalry. They’re squabbling over profits is keeping science from advancing, keeping over a million workers from a pay check, and eroding the image of the U.S. overseas. How close is the U.S. ruling class from a Caesar moment? The moment when the republic becomes the empire, the moment when congress doesn’t work? The moment when the imperialists wonder if they can allow their democracy to inhibit their needs to develop and build the fascistic discipline that they need the smaller capitalists and the working class to follow? The moment when full blown fascism comes to the U.S. will be a qualitative shift in the amount of surveillance the state does to us, the violence the police use against us, the amount of laws the law breaks to protect their system of profit and exploitation, and may not look much different than the U.S. that wantonly murders workers all over the world with impunity.
Each and every day the absurdity of capitalism’s anarchic production completely baffles the mind. It is the working class that continues to suffer the shutdown that internecine capitalist rivalry promulgated. Science is halted, disease tracking and food inspections are offline, basically what little protection the capitalist state did provide for the working class is now being halted due to the needs for the parasitical capitalists to suck their profit from our veins.
These imperialists are pushing their position around the globe like a game of chess. They will spend our lives, our blood, our children’s blood, anything, so long as they can preserve their power and profit. The need for a mass Communist movement led by the Progressive Labor Party fighting against all forms of false consciousness like nationalism, racism, and sexism is more important than ever. Join us!
