Engraving of Lenin busy studying

Economic and Philosophic Science Review

Only he is a Marxist who extends the recognition of the class struggle to the recognition of the dictatorship of the proletariat. This is the touchstone on which the real understanding and recognition of Marxism is to be tested. --- V. I. Lenin

No 1403 31st March 2012
"Respect" election shock signals contempt for parliament and the class-war cuts it is imposing but is no answer to the catastrophic crisis either – just more of the same reformist confusion which has tied down the working class for a century and a half. But the upheaval shows the potential for building revolutionary leadership, starting with the exposure of all reformist nonsense and the pretend revolutionary fake-"left" opportunism which tailends it. The world will continue to plunge into devastating crisis Slump disaster and collapse everywhere culminating in universal war turmoil and destruction, the only answer capitalism has ever given, to distract attention from its shameful failure and collapse. The crisis failure now is on a larger scale than ever before and unstoppable no matter what temporary "upturn" respite it gets from insane money printing. Only world scale revolutionary struggle to end this foul exploitative tyranny for good can change anything

No 1402 13th March 2012
Fascist killer rampage in Afghanistan is not some exception but the core character of US NAZI degeneracy and war being imposed on the whole planet by monopoly capitalism to distract from and evade responsibility for its own failure and desperate Slump crisis. Barbarism is routine and trained into imperialist troops. The backlash against this horror may precipitate US pullout from the 10 year long quagmire and defeat but cannot end warmongering, which the historically bankrupt profit making system needs and is deliberately fostering; to scapegoat everyone else, to intimidate any capitalist rivals and to suppress rising Third World rebellion (and especially the Arab Spring). Anti-war protest useless – only revolution to end out-of-time class rule can stop depravity. Leninism crucial

No 1401 13th February 2012
Demented anti-Syrian lie campaign is not just to intimidate the rising mass resistance of the Arab world and wider Middle East. It aims to stampede the whole world towards the next phase of vicious destruction and war which is capitalism's only way out of its greatest crisis failure. Its out-of-time greed and profit system has returned to Slump and Depression to be imposed on all the world as the finance and political chaos spreads. Iran is the next on the list as the catastrophic meltdown collapse of monopoly capitalism drives it all the way to total all out World War. But despite the gigantic spontaneous revolts and heroism of Cairo and Tunis, the missing ingredient everywhere is the conscious revolutionary understanding of Leninism, almost stifled by the last century of revisionist retreats into social-pacifism and anti-communist fake-"leftism". A gigantic debate to re-assess the errors of the first great socialist experiments and rebuild Leninism is now crucial

Desperate bolstering of fake- "left" charlatans by the capitalist state will not save the ruling class from the class war upheavals being stirred because of its catastrophic failure leading to Slump agonies and diversionary war horrors. But the working class needs to develop Leninist revolutionary consciousness to expose the multiple layers of confusions and lies about "failed communism" and "world terrorist threats" which are dragging the world into World War Three. Third World upheavals will grow but need Leninist understanding too. Build revolutionary theory Find issue here

Fake-"left" increasingly exposed for their craven and cowardly capitulation to NATO Nazi war- provocation Goebbels propaganda and sham "rebellion" stunts to provoke yet more war scapegoating as desperate capitalism flounders ever more in the greatest economic and political meltdown disaster ever seen.

Libya foretells total war that world economic collapse is driving the capitalist ruling class to, culminating in inter-imperialist conflict already surfacing in vicious chauvinism and diplomatic breakdown around Europe.

Murdoch press row underlines the desperate panic of the ruling class as the catastrophic capitalist economic and political disaster keeps steamrolling forwards. Squabbling factions are panicking at how fast and how quickly to tear up the “democracy” illusions as the urgent need for class war repression grows rapidly, to prevent inevitable rising rebelliousness already seen in Spain, Greece,Portugal and throughout the Middle East. Illusions in parliament and “democracy” fed by decades of fake-“left” pacifism and reformism are still relied on to hold back the working class and prevent it turning to revolutionary politics. But Egyptian “spring” and Greek demonstrations can go nowhere until revolutionary perspectives are made the order of the day in every march, occupation and strike. The sovereign debt defaults (now lapping at Italy and even the US) will keep spreading along with dangerous inflation. Urgent need for revolutionary politics to be built immediately

Lurching Greek debt collapse confirms again that capitalist catastrophic collapse has not only NOT stopped and (lyingly) become “recovery” but nor can it. It spirals ever faster into total chaos and war everywhere. Slump savagery and class war “cuts” imposed on all because of monopoly capitalism’s shaming incompetence and greed, have lifted mass consciousness everywhere to a new level of revolt against exploitation tyranny. But it remains hamstrung by the lack of revolutionary consciousness which is not only not developed by dozens of fake-“lefts” but headed off by their capitulation to bourgeois war lies and “democracy” frauds, feeding the Goebbels victimisation of Libya, Syria etc, deliberately started counter-revolutions to confuse and suppress the Arab Spring. Trots the most poisonous but Eurocommunist remnants too. Museum Stalinists keep feeding out pacifist idiocies that disarmed workers for decades and cover-up mistakes.

Escalating war-blitz in Libya and the Middle East is the real depravity not sick Hague show-trial Goebbels lies about non-existent “genocide” in Srebrenica or Benghazi. But decades of fatuous “even-handed” human rights moralising, built on the social-pacifist delusions of Moscow revisionism from Stalin onwards, and Trotskyist anti-revolutionary poison, play right into imperialism’s hands, “justifying” its NAZI NATO counter-revolutionary stunts to head off and intimidate the Arab Spring revolts. Worse, they fail to warn the working class of the deeper world war purpose of now constant militarism, to “solve” the unsolvable unrolling capitalist Slump catastrophe. Leninism urgently needed

Vigilante US death squad execution of Osama bin Laden and blitzing assassination attempts on Gaddafi underline the stupidity and treachery of the fake- “lefts”. Far from “Stop the War” their degenerate simple-minded confusion and class-based collusion with capitalist Goebbels lies about “dictators” and the “fight for democracy” has played right into hands of the Nazi warmongers. Senior military calls for total NATO destruction of Libya underline the direction that all capitalism is heading because of its unstopping and unstoppable catastrophic bankruptcy and failure, which continues to unravel. Far from “the recovery” the insane printing of money to stop the 2008 “credit crunch” has made matters a thousand times worse as inflation rips and whole countries teeter on the edge of starvation and bankruptcy, like Greece, bailed out and again threatening world destabilising default. War is capitalism’s only way out – defeat for imperialism the only correct Marxist response, on the way to bring it down. Masses need to build Leninism

Western provocations against Syria to extend the bogus “revolution” in Libya will cause more turmoil and confusion until the world begins to take seriously the need for revolutionary Marxist politics. But the desperate gamble to topple Assad’s feeble anti-imperialism will backfire badly on monopoly capitalism in the medium term as its teaches the Arab World, the Third World and the working class everywhere deeper lessons about its fascist nature, ready to use any pretext to step up the war atmosphere, the only solution capitalism ever had to its ever deepening and intractable historic crisis.

Trotskyists soil themselves in foul complicity with Western CIA stunts to topple Gaddafi’s anti-imperialism, exposing yet deeper the monstrous anti-communism that underlies their “rank-and-file” pretend revolutionism. But revisionist opportunist failure to develop world revolutionary perspectives is equally exposed by the mass confusion which has let Western subversion whip up a near civil war atmosphere in Libya, taking advantage of genuine revolt in Egypt to stir a counter-revolutionary pretence.

Secret torture flights, concentration camps, “turkey shoot” civilian killings, airburst blitzkriegs, no-trial indefinite detention, white phosphorus chemical warfare, censorship, “transportation” (deportation), extradition without evidence, press gagging by state order, assassination of journalists and TV crews. How much does it take to understand that imperialism in crisis is the source of all “fascism” and bourgeois “democracy and freedom” a joke and a lie? But the oncoming capitalist slump — already destroying General Motors and Ford — will make the point more forcefully, along with the universal warmongering imperialism has in store yet again as a “solution”. Only revolution to end capitalism and disciplined building of socialism can stop the devastation.

“Better integration” or “more facilities in the suburbs” will not deal with the deepest driving pressures bursting out in riots and turmoil in France. The real cause is not racism (despite its use by the French capitalist state to divide the working class) but the desperate sinkhole exploitation and alienation of all capitalism. This spontaneous hostility has only just begun and will rapidly intensify everywhere as the real slump conditions of capitalist crisis eventually are forced onto workers along with the horrors of a Third World War “solution”. Sorting out revolutionary understanding is vital.

Iraq quicksand ever worse for imperialism despite fraudulent “constitution” stunts to pretend a “new democracy” is in place. Tory stunts to make a new “Blair” show how rolling defeat for imperialism has undermined the last throw for parliamentary trickery in Britain of bare-faced lying spin and illusion mongering — with the ruling class desperate to ditch this losing version for a “clean” one. But the real story is the whirlpool of capitalist crisis which is sucking down all this capitalist rubbish — with only Leninist polemic and science missing to finally build the revolutionary leadership needed

New slump collapse signs confirm that capitalist economic crisis has not “gone away” or been dealt with but grows ever more serious and unstable. The rapid “fascist-isation” of society; elimination of complacently-assumed eternal “freedoms” and rights and the aggressive stepping up of warmongering provocations by the leading imperialists (USA and stooge lapdog the UK) is the only method this historically defunct profit-grubbing exploitation has to stay in charge and it will use every barabarity to do it — justified by lies to make Goebbels blush. The crucial need for Leninism grows.

New Orleans underlines all the callousness, class-war indifference, hypocrisy, antagonism, hatred and incompetence of the late capitalist system which offers neither “freedom”, “democracy” nor “prosperity”. It is the warmongering insanity of the ruling-class’s only solution to its crisis which stripped money away from routine maintenance in the first place and which is threatening a thousand times more chaos across the planet now. Even revisionist-hampered workers states like China and Cuba can show the compassion and unity needed to handle disasters; only revolution will end the much greater disasters of fast maturing Third World war which capitalism is preparing

Under "treason" laws support for the Vietnamese struggle would have been illegal; for the bomb-using anti-apartheid anc; and for the Palestinians. No matter what British troops do — bombing tiny Serbia, beating prisoners in Basra, death squad shootings in Gibraltar, suppression and torture of the Irish, — or strike breaking — you must support them, or else. Such nazi thought policing exposes the big lie of capitalist "free speech" — "democracy" is dictatorship of the bourgeoisie and forceful suppression of all objection, resistance and organisation. But the denial of the "oxygen of publicity" did not work in occupied Ireland, where the ira disarmament now follows its victory, and now it demonstrates only the weakness and panic of a ruling class facing defeat and humilation in Iraq and Aghanistan, and its biggest world crisis ever. Draconian censorship will feed revolutionary understanding. How Britain supported Zionism for decades secretly giving it the atomic bomb despite "non-proliferation" lies, now used against Iran.

Now for the REAL POST-WAR western imperialist conspiracy — the story of how against the whole direction of postwar ANTI-colonialism in the world, the Palestinian NEAR-EAST was DELIBERATELY given to Western Jewish monopoly-imperialist interests for permanent COLONISATION and for subsequent TOTAL and PERMANENT NAZI-CONCENTRATION-CAMP DOMINATION, which will never end until the fascist-Jews and their US NAZI-imperialist mentors are DEFEATED by PALESTINIAN REVOLUTION —— soon (historically speaking).

Now historically anticipate World War III. The Kerry half of the American Empire only offered an even more ruthless "international war on barbarian terrorism", but what is that but WWIII when the sole issue is Western fears over the collapse of the world economic "free market" system (i.e. Western monopoly-imperialist world domination), its hatred in the East and the entire Third World and the West's fears that 800 years of world history is about to end bloodily and nastily, — as the West's own "free press" admits in the small, less propagandist print and TV admissions of the real truth about the world, away from the warmongering bombast and armsrace industrial might and greed-arrogance.

Blair's desperate "new war" idiocy will collapse ignominiously if military defeats in Iraq continue. The insane propaganda scapegoating of "terrorism", like it was some alien force instead of merely a way of violently resisting unwanted imperialist occupation, will also fail if the hugely costly military blitzkrieging continues to get nowhere. The reluctant bourgeois "opposition" to the warmongering will play a temporary role in the further disgrace of the imperialist Western system, demolishing Blair's "integrity" as a substitute for denouncing the whole rotten colonial-imperialist warmongering racket. The EPSR's Marxist-Leninist line of constantly emphasising the ultimate revolutionary end of capitalism in social and economic breakdown vindicated against a sick outbreak of cynicism.

The "natural" instinct to think of stopping any more Beslan-type outrages by stopping the terrorists is ignorant, cowardly, and doomed. Such tragedies can only be stopped by the revolutionary overthrow of the Western imperialist system. As civil-war acts of all kinds proliferate, it is a sign of monopoly capitalist class society disintegrating and a clear summons to conscious revolutionary theory. Revisionist nostalgia trying to justify Putin's neo-imperialist stance is only cementing the USSR's death from Stalinist theoretical deg-eneration. Combined with "condemnation" of terrorism, it plays right into the hands of the dedicated anti-communist "left" press. US atrocities, driven by fear of defeat, remain the real talking point, not the CIA gloss about imminent Middle-East victory for the American Empire in all fields of endeavour. Is it as debt-junkies who know they are going to their doom that the neo-cons are still mindlessly claiming "certain triumph"???

Lies about the historical significance of Reagan and inter-imperialist Western wars are just a silly cover for the rotten mess that the current monopoly-capitalist crisis is making of things. Speculative decadence is the final dominating ESSENCE of the "free-market" anarchy, and it sums up the criminal injustice and the illogical chaos of the profiteering rat-race.

America's NAZI-imperialist posturing, 70 years on, is even more out of date than Hitler's was, and even more doomed.

PERSPECTIVES 2004.
Victory or defeat in the Middle East for Western imperialist domination will remain the most immediate and universally-observed indicator of trends in the international balance of class and national forces, deciding civilisation's future. But by already turning to aggressive warmongering and xenophobic hysteria in the midst of an unresolved global over-production economic crisis which can threaten destruction to ANY capital conglomerations at any time, — the "free world" leadership has long ago given the game away. The out-of-date international system of grotesque inequality, ruthless exploitation, and racist belligerence can only degenerate towards ever-worsening warmongering-terrorism, and ever-more-explosive revolutionary chaos.

The Hutton Inquiry farce where everyone is lying or covering up for the stench of imperialist rottenness in Iraq, sums up the cretinous British ruling-class role in the corrupt decaying mess that is monopoly capitalism as its world rule crumbles. Even the polite & clubbing Swedes smell a rat; and the Third World's "declaration of war" at Cancun means just that. And the cynical Guardian treatment of the Arafat assassination threat as a joke shows that even "liberal democracy" pretensions are giving themselves up as a fraud, including the infamous "two-state solution" nonsense. The lesson the world needs to learn is what is the reason for Cuban muscle
