Engraving of Lenin busy studying

Economic & 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

Perspectives for 2002
Synopsis - imperialist crisis heading for world war III
Driven by insoluble 'over-production' crisis, the monopoly-imperialist system is gearing up for perpetual inter-imperialist war. Only the relentless destruction of 'surplus' capital is seen as avoiding Japan's fate (of 10 years economic paralysis) afflicting the West. At the same time, all potential anti-imperialist revolt in the Third World can be destroyed. To stifle revolt at home, racial divisions will be continuously provoked. By being brainwashed into 'condemning' the anarcho-terror attempts to fight back against western domination, the entire fake 'left' has repeated the Second International's 1914 disaster of voting for war credits. US imperialist tyranny is as 'fascist' as anything seen when German and Japanese imperialism were setting the pace for warmongering to end capitalism's last world slump. The grotesque theoretical mistakes by Stalinism, Trotskyism, and Revisionism in the 30s, 40s, and 50s, continue to cripple the revival of serious anti-imperialist struggle
Perspectives for 2001
Workers states are way forward but minus Moscow weak revisionist leadership chaos. Thinking that "free world triumph" means imperialist war-fascism epoch has end will be a fatal mistake. "Human rights" fraud is just a cover for Western domination. The greatest myth is that the Soviet workers state went wrong because over the years , its leadership had acted bureaucratically and dictatorially. The Stalin era went wrong because of theoretical bankruptcy in understanding. The world may seem an increasingly modernised and rational place where steady reforms are all that is needed...but in reality revolutionary class war is the only conceivable way forwards. Analysing the necessary revolutionary future of progress is not guesswork but the essential reliable science about society without which there will be no transformation to workers running their own lives.
