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

No 1537 29th June 2018
New torture revelations and ever more callous brutality against Mexican migrants and Roma scapegoats confirm deepening fascist degeneracy of this monopoly capitalist system. Not “Nazi takeover” but fundamental nature of capitalism itself showing its dictatorship face is the issue as it slides into the greatest crisis collapse of all time. Trumpite trade war belligerence a prelude to all-out inter-imperialist war, end point of the Catastrophic failure revealed in 2008 and returning soon as QE fails and the dollar disintegrates. Brexit and other chauvinism is preparing the atmosphere, along with the Middle East war devastation acclimatising the world to non-stop destruction. As need for revolutionary class-war to end capitalism grows clearer, the fake-“left” retreats into craven entryist Labourism or hopeless social-pacifist revisionism. Socialist Fight Trots typical, flinging poisonous provocations and lies against Leninist clarity to cover their tracks, sneering at “catastrophism”.

Washington trade war aggression is next phase of descent into world war begun 20 years ago with blitzing of Serbia, then Iraq and Afghanistan. It can only get far worse as monopoly capitalism’s crisis relentlessly heads into the greatest Catastrophic breakdown in all history with QE failing and dollar collapse due. Backward chauvinism and hatred of foreigners now deliberately stirred up using every propaganda trick in the book from Brexit scapegoating to “bogeyman” anti-Russian panics to endless “terrorism” scares and stunts. Trumpite belligerence is no aberration or “loose cannon” but the deliberate face of fascist aggression wanted and needed by a collapsing imperialist ruling class which has only brute force “might is right” intimidation left to suppress the world and make it pay for the intractable failure of the private profit system. Laughable CIA-Zionist anti-semitism stunt fails to head off growing hostility to vicious Jewish occupation of Palestine at the forefront of imperialist war threats. Defeat for the Zionists and all imperialism needed on road to revolution and Leninism with it.

Zionland 70th timing for “fashionable” transfer of US embassy to occupied Jerusalem an obvious encouragement for gruesome butchery of besieged and unarmed Gaza Palestinians by the artificial Nazi-Jewish “state of Israel”. But this provocation goes deeper, egging on an unholy Zionist alliance with corrupt and degenerate feudal Saudis to whip up regional conflict and destruction against Iran. That in turn just part of world intimidation and bullying by US led imperialism ramping up the World War atmosphere it needs as the only way out of total breakdown and collapse. But the turn to ever more aggression and intimidatory bluster teaches the world even more about the fascist reality of Western “freedom and democracy” while simultaneously splitting world bourgeoisie, riven with panic from Catastrophic crisis collapse and the world revolt it is inevitably generating. Europe - US conflict escalates around the trade war. Palestinian heroic sacrifice exposes Goebbels “anti-semitism” propaganda. Revolutionary theory vital to explain and lead

Tory Windrush turmoil reflects ruling class fear as the monopoly capitalist crisis plunges, facing the greatest ever collapse despite “upturn” pretence. Jumpiness over setting off internal upheaval overrides crude racist callousness but hypocritical pretence to “see justice done” only underlines the overall poisonous scapegoating being whipped up. Brexit Little Englander chauvinism remains the plan to divert attention from Catastrophe and stir hatred for oncoming hostilities as unstoppable international trade war slide towards World War Three, already destroying country after country with horrifying blitzing like Yemen. Similar fearfulness revealed in “limited” missile strike on Syria despite belligerent bluster and “chemical attack” lies. But capitalism must still whip up war because it has no other way out. Zionism increasingly a spearhead for imperialist aggression. Fake-“left” capitulates to Jewish freemasonry “left anti-semitism“ Goebbels inversion of reality - too scared of lying “racism” claims to call out this Nazi-campaign. Leninism needed

Western “concern” over chemical war is a massive Goebbels LIE, built on fake-news pretences and even setup as Russia claims. Ditto the bogus Skripal spy stunt. Whatever the truth about the Douma in Syria’s sectarian civil war (itself set going by CIA-Zionist provocation and hidden sniper intervention), imperialist theatrical “outrage” is a monstrous fraud. Grandstanding hypocritical pretences have one purpose only, to escalate the belligerent atmosphere and stampede public opinion behind warmongering to come. It is Catastrophic crisis collapse of monopoly capitalism which alone is driving the world towards World War Three as the inter-imperialist cutthroat trade war conflict deepens and austerity impositions are ratcheted up on the working class. Explosive anti-Western turmoil in the Third World, (jihadist and nostalgic workers state) soon to be joined by upheaval in the imperialist heartlands as unstoppable crisis austerity intensifies and global credit collapse returns. Fake - “left” and revisionism still does nothing to develop such perspectives and the class war Leninist revolutionary understanding to overthrow capital

The world plunges ever closer to inter-imperialist conflict and war as “austerity” grip tightens further on the poor and exploited. Even soup kitchens, homelessness, service cuts, zero-hours and NHS collapse are nothing compared to the degradation the ruling class must impose as Catastrophic crisis continues (after Mickey Mouse QE false credit runs its course). Ludicrous provocations like the joke “Russian nerve gas” accusations preparing a chauvinist fear and frenzy for world war to come. Horrors already imposed on the Middle East killing millions still just a starter for imperialist belligerence, which has no solution but war for its greatest ever systemic failure. But the fake-“left” still refuses to talk revolution and drags workers back behind parliamentary “democracy” and Labour frauds. Leninism needed

Russian “spy murder” accusations a gigantic fascist stunt by failing British ruling class, whipping up chauvinist hatred to distract from disintegrating economy in teeth of the greatest ever capitalist Catastrophe. Any facts drowned out by Reichstag fire level of false melodrama, a demented BIG LIE, magnified by a stinking capitalist press colluding with the farcical racket. Russia targeted for past socialist form despite idiot Putin nationalism and anti-communism. But main purpose is to distract from Brexit paralysis, further austerity, stinking arms industry sales to Saudi Arabian genocidal warmaking and long-planned escalation of Britain’s vile chemical warfare facilities at Porton Down coincidentally (??) 8 miles away. Labourite capitulation to obvious Goebbels rubbish exposes treachery of the entire parliamentary racket including grovelling Corbynism. “Left” Trot Labour entryism exposed for tailending opportunist failure to give any revolutionary perspective and dangerously misleading workers.

“Big beast” Tory Brexit swipes, the hung election in Italy, Germany’s desperate arm-twisted “grand coalition” and endless anti-Trump investigations all indicate a split and divided ruling class throughout the capitalist world. All are paralysed by the enormity of oncoming crisis collapse, the Catastrophe that began in 2008 and has unrolled ever since, fended off only by demented money printing QE. But Trump’s US trade war moves show international conflict and aggression has only just begun, heading for all-out war that the capitalist order has been warming up with its ludicrous “war on terror” since Afghanistan and Iraq (and Serbia before). Brexit chauvinism fits international scapegoating and belligerence but terrifies the British ruling class, - presiding over one of the weakest links in the imperialist ranks - splitting it down the middle. The intractable Irish border issue underlines their defeated weakness. Complacent Remainers and “welcome immigrants” posturing just as useless, failing to develop revolutionary theory.

Trots and rightwing tabloids play the same game, boosting Corbyn’s Labour revival, dragging workers back into democracy illusions just when the capitalist crisis is teetering on the edge of the greatest Catastrophe in history (deferred, not ended by post-2008 meltdown money printing). Tepid paid-for “re-nationalisation” hopeless to counter austerity savagery but the real issue with more Labourism is theoretical disarming of workers leaving them vulnerable to open violence and fascist coups being prepared by the ruling class for oncoming collapses. Complacent “couldn’t happen here” undermined Allende’s Chile too, just before Pinochet’s torture coup butchery. Remaining “left” revisionists and museum-Stalinists hopeless too, failing to raise need for revolutionary understanding to be built now, and continuing to refuse polemic and discussion. Brexit diversion remains unchallenged by all of them. North Korea nuclear defiance and Olympic diplomacy blows to imperialism good despite Pyongyang revisionism

Capitalist press led "exposés", celebrity witch-hunts, evidence-free scapegoating and "moral" grandstanding reveal the reactionary outcome of the latest "new feminism" and its man-blaming diversions from the class war realities of capitalism's breakdown. Campaigns for women bosses and Tory BBC journalists underlines its middle class character. Like "old" feminism, the real impact of this super-reformism is to divert attention from capitalism's war depravities and Catastrophic economic breakdown and from the only possible way in which the gross inequalities, injustice and repression of capitalist society can be solved - through communist revolution. Sexism, female double-exploitation and rape are all huge blots on human existence but are constantly created by and RE-generated by capitalism itself just as racism, homophobic persecution and environmental degradation. All can be solved only by ending this system. Elevation of single-issue reform above Marxist revolutionary perspectives is part of the problem helping capitalist divide and rule and feeding anti-communism. Leninism is needed

Middle-class exposés and mockery of Trumpism reflect weakness of imperialism’s desperate turn to Hitler-like fascist bluster and crude intimidation. But petty-bourgeois dismay at oncoming fascist reality imposed by crisis-ridden imperialism neither offers a fight against it nor even grasp the depths to which the Catastrophe is driving all capitalism. Liberalism, reformist leftism and the fake-“left” all avoid the revolutionary implications even as US ‘topdog’ warmongering belligerence increases and domestic repression is stepped up. Ruling class fears pressure cooker turmoil building as Slump deprivation and depredations on the working class drive the poorest into the ground even in the richest countries, including the US. Petty bourgeois complacency still clings to “upturn” notions even as NHS crisis, Grenfell fire horrors, Carillion collapse and racked up rail and utility prices screw everyone. Even if Trumpite crudity fails there is no stopping the warmongering path that capitalism is set upon. Feminist self-righteousness, and other single-issues are a diversion and distraction from needed revolutionary overturn

American UN contempt for Middle East outrage over handing Jerusalem to Zionist aggression; US backing for cynical Saudi civilian bomb slaughter and starvation of millions in Yemen; and escalation of killer-siege sanctions on North Korea’s workers state for daring to build nuclear defence (like everyone else) all point to a crisis wracked imperialist system out of control and threatening the world with 3rd world war devastation. Fake-“left” Trotskyism and revisionism ever more craven failing to build the only possible answer to this fascist degeneracy and instability, – revolutionary theory for overturn of capitalism. Instead Beijing votes with the US and the “lefts” capitulate to the stinking Goebbels Zionist lies that calling for an end to landtheft “Israel” is a “new kind of anti-semitism”.

Fake-“left” still fails to grasp or explain world imperialist plunge towards the greatest Catastrophe in history and the increasingly obvious open Nazism of its chauvinism and “anti-terrorist” warmongering. Declaring Trump a “nasty person” is simply hopeless as a perspective for the working class which needs to understand the full crisis collapse of the monopoly capitalism, turning to fascist warmongering across the board by its very nature. Nor do they draw out the vital revolutionary implications. Monstrous hypocrisy of the blood curdling US bluster against the North Korean workers state for presuming to defend itself with justified nuclear weaponry is underlined by the White House overt backing for the long nuclear armed Zionist landtheft occupation of Palestine, its Jerusalem embassy move sanctifying the most aggressive illegal ongoing settlements. But whole Western backed creation of “Israel” is a monstrous nazi-colonialist monstrosity which needs overturning by revolutionary war - as does all imperialism.

“End austerity” pleading by petty bourgeois liberals and fake-“left” still leaves workers tied to hopes in capitalist renewal and bourgeois democracy just when the endless stagnation, ruling class splits and continuing war horrors say the exact opposite. Far worse Slump cuts are on the way as QE credit too implodes and war belligerence intensifies. Only finishing the entire festering capitalist order to build communism can stop now constant slide to breakdown and Slump. Saudi Arabia “reform” desperation and belligerent lashing out symptomatic of collapse eating away all capitalism, driving vicious destructive warmongering.

Let governments (and all parliamentary fraud) topple through sleaze and degeneracy, the more the merrier and November 5th too. But feminist hysteria and nonsense about a “crisis of masculinity” are PCist obscurantism blocking understanding of the real cause of chaos, incompetence and disintegration. That is the gigantic looming capitalist Catastrophe which far from being solved by Quantitative Easing, has been made one hundred times worse and about to implode with devastating consequences. Feminist posturing blocks this understanding with its shallow reverse sexism and scapegoating, underlain with its real character, poisonous anti-communism. It is completely counter-revolutionary whatever “celebrations” it joins for the 100th anniversary of the Great October Revolution. So too is the desperate posturing around Brexit or breakaway petty bourgeois nationalism like Catalonia, just as suddenly and febrilely erupting as a giant diversion. What the world needs now is to build revolutionary understanding to overturn the entire degenerate, unequal armsrace system. Build Leninism

No 1522 14th October 2017
Trade war antagonism and austerity stagnation, deepening constantly as capitalist crisis unfolds, drives now constant eruption of nationalism and conflict such as Catalonia. Declaring these simply “struggles for freedom and self-determination” is academic moralising which misses their significance as symptoms of the plunge towards Slump and world war breakdown. Simplistic “democracy” illusions aid their use by capitalism to distract and diverts workers’ attention and feeds chauvinism being whipped up everywhere (as with Brexit). Many national struggles like Ireland are progressive but because defeating imperialist oppression and opening a road to the proletarian revolution that alone can solve mankind’s problems. Others are reactionary gimmicks. Concrete analysis needed with Leninist theoretical grasp

“Oh Jeremy” Labour conference gush as manipulative & treacherous as Blairism before it, avoiding and evading the unstoppable capitalist crisis collapse and dragging workers back behind the parliamentary democracy fraud, - it leaves workers disarmed and set up for an Allende style coup if any of its tame reformism should go too far (unlikely). Agenda manipulation and censorship shut down critical debate on key questions like the Brexit diversion, international warmongering and anti-imperialist resistance like the Palestinian struggle. Workers need to hear that neither staying inside or out of Europe can solve their problems which are caused by worldwide capitalist Catastrophic collapse only endable by revolution.

Alongside capitulations to the “war on terror” the fake- "left" helps feed imperialist war-fever stampeding, latest around the hapless Rohingya people in Myanmar, swallowing wholesale monstrous imperialist BIG LIE hypocritical ”concern for human rights” etc and Goebbels lies about “genocide” in world media campaign. The monopoly capitalist system, facing Catastrophic failure and on a 20 year path to world war, could not care less about these poor victims or any other of a hundred or more desperate and harried national peoples and causes – many far greater and long lasting, from the Palestinians and the Kurds, to the Aborigines and Native Americans. Its record is endless callous suppression and even deliberate genocidal persecution throughout history and into modern times.

Demented US war bluster against North Korean workers state grows ever stronger as Catastrophic crisis deepens but imperialism’s capacity to bully and intimidate the world is more and more hampered too by its desperation – blitzing North Korea raises unknown questions of Russia and China responses and South Korean collapse + Marxism does not "condemn" terrorism.

Bloodcurdling nuclear threats against North Korea workers state’s right to defend itself and invasion plans to obliterate Venezuela’s socialist reformism no mere Trumpite bluster; nor is the Nazi populism, being stirred up. Both are the deadly reality of imperialism heading for crisis collapse. However uncertain Trump’s nascent Nazism it has already demonstrated its fascist barbarity slaughtering 40,000 innocent civilians who "got in the way" in Mosul as the Iraqi Sunni anti-imperialist anti-occupation ISIS resistance was pulverised. Fake-"left" capitulation to the nonsensical “war on terror” helps this fascist barbarity instead of calling for the defeat of imperialist onslaught. War the only answer this greed ridden private profit system has for Catastrophic failure and it is coming despite the complacency of all the "left". Their vaunting of the "Bolivarian Revolution" "democratic path" for 15 years played into the hands of capitalism too, another side of total failure to make clear that only the revolutionary overthrow of capitalism is now possible as the way to stop World War Three.

Aggressive bluster against tiny North Korea’s justified self-defence nuclear arms, against Venezuela and continuing gross slaughter in the Middle East all part of US “topdog” imperialist failure to get the world back into line for continuing domination and exploitation. New details of the horrific crudeness, city obliteration, summary execution and civilian slaughtering savagery to suppress the Iraqi anti-occupation fight, further expose the hollowness and lies of Western “freedom and democracy” and will lead to greater Third World hatred and revolt.

This is unrolling of World War III, crisis-wracked imperialism’s only way out of Slump Catastrophe. Bizarre and brutal jihadism is a response to endless oppression and colonialist exploitation tyranny, an attempt to fight back and multiplied a thousand fold by the blitzkrieging and torture imposed, and now used as an excuse for the destruction caused and generated by capitalism itself. Fake-“left” capitulation to the “condemn all terrorism” mantra – using ever more convoluted anti-Marxist sophistry – plays into the hands of the imperialist warmongering and helps feed the chauvinist “kill them all” atmosphere needed by this degenerate and historically bankrupt profit system.

Crude bribery of DUP to keep the Tory losers in power underlines the desperation and fearfulness of the ruling class in the teeth of the greatest capitalist Catastrophe ever, with economic disaster unrolling since 2008 and about to hit the buffers worse than before. Backpedaling on austerity a sign of their weakness. Grenfell tower fire horrors underline ruling class incompetence and indifference while also revealing working class stirring towards revolt. Bringing down this Tory arrogance and profiteering a first step but Labourism however “left”-posing (not very) is a disaster too, tying the working class back to parliament and disarming understanding, leaving them open to counter-revolutionary coup moves the ruling class is already plotting (and even hinting at on TV). Brexit chauvinism and “war on terror” hate frenzy feed the fascist atmosphere being whipped up, with the “left” cravenly going along with it in one way or another, tailending Labour reformism and “condemning terror”.

Tory election collapse useful but Corbynista revolt can solve nothing about the devastating onrush of monopoly capitalist Catastrophe, hurtling the world towards the greatest Slump collapse in history.

The crisis is unsolvable except by total ending and overturn of the bankrupt and warmongering capitalist system. Labourite illusions in “parliament” completely disarm the working class, feeding illusions in hoodwinking “democratic change” just when the ruling class is preparing draconian moves towards censorship, repression and ultimately coups and escalating its Nazi “anti-terror” Middle East civilian slaughter to prepare the world for oncoming World War.

Capitalist blitzkrieg and torture long imposed on the Middle East, plus its “exterminate, exterminate” response to the jihadist rebellion caused, is alone responsible for pain and grief of the Manchester bombing. Blaming suicide desperation of the alienated masses of the world who want imperialist domination off their backs is total cynicism by a barbaric system that is using the “war on terror” as an excuse and justification for the bullying warmongering it is creating itself. The capitulation to this “condemnation” by the liberals and fake-“left” is the real cowardice. Blairite and liberal shouting down of the idea British foreign policy is to blame is as fascist minded as UKIP nationalist hate campaigning, but tepid “No to War” social pacifism undermines itself by also declaring jihadists an “abomination” instead of tackling why this terrorism is occurring at all, explaining the world is being dragged deliberately to international hostility and vicious scapegoating so capitalism can evade responsibility for its intractable and unsolvable crisis collapse.

Sullen stooge Blairites still sabotage Corbynism but “leftist” manifesto falls hopelessly short anyway. Anti-Tory voting useful but not one jot of faith in Labourism whose warmed over reformism ignores capitalist crisis breakdown and falsely pretends it can be reversed. Great 2008 collapse not ended; capitalist society ever more festering under Tory “austerity” while the fatcats enriched. Once QE false-credit runs out a hurricane of economic disaster will return wiping out all reform tinkering anyway. Workers will soon face full savagery of Slump disaster with open capitalist dictatorship to impose it. Revolutionary struggle to end this system is the only way forwards but Corbynism and all fake-“left”ism disarm with continuing “democracy” illusions. Left capitulation all round on “Brexit” – for and against - is also disastrous, playing into ruling class hands, and distracting from the real question of the crisis and revolution to end it. Little Englander protectionism backward, only feeding fascist nastiness needed for crisis warmongering but “welcome all migrants” is a useless response to real working class fears for jobs and services.

Trump bellicosity, bullying contempt for legal principle, and trampling “diplomacy” underlines desperation of ruling class facing the greatest breakdown collapse in all history. The 2008 Great Catastrophe returns any moment as artificial QE breathing space runs out. Imperialism must drag the world to war to escape its failure and culpability for (barely started) Depression savagery and has no time or money left for “reformist” niceties. Sections of ruling class fear rebellious turmoil that sharp realities of raw Slump and cutthroat trade war will bring as raw profiteering is reimposed and slide to World War accelerates. Near civil war splits emerging with philistine Nazism underline bourgeois fears. But trusting “the Constitution” is pointless as are all reformist and single-issue politics still played by the fake-“left” and its moralising posturing. Trump bigotry feeds on this hopeless petty bourgeois “left” play-acting which has never achieved anything and still refuses to confront the real issues of capitalist dictatorship and epochal breakdown and crisis (or even see them). Fake-“left” “British jobs” nationalism and Brexit support plays into hands of Trump, UKIP and European neo-fascism.

Bizarre CIA attack on Trump reveals profound fear and division within ruling class over future as the gigantic Great Catastrophe of monopoly capitalist crisis rolls towards total meltdown and war. Populist bigotry and bellicose trade war is another step to fascism, the open repressive form of the bourgeois dictatorship rule always calls the shots. But stripping away further now threadbare pretences of bourgeois democracy and reversing past reformist sops which keep the working class quiet is easier said than done and delivers major lessons in the reality of capitalism and its oncoming Slump collapse. Hysteria from the fake-“left” about fascism as some special “other” form of rule needing to be “stopped” sends all the wrong messages implying what went before is less objectionable and Obama-ism more progressive.

Fake-”left” of all kinds equally exposed swallowing capitalist Goebbels lies and in their “condemnation of terror”. Labourite willingness to feed foul warmongering is vile treachery, and so too is Trot entryism backing it up. But revisionist support for Damascus and its Putinite backers (instead of welcoming only imperialist defeat) is just as treacherous, lining Stalinists up with Russian gangster oligarchs, Trump anti-ISIS hate campaigning, the vile Egyptian Sisi dictatorship and even Duterte death squads.

Dismay grows daily as Great capitalist Catastrophe pushes ruling class deeper towards degenerate fascistic populism and deliberately inflamed chauvinism and scapegoating – building the mood for the world war conflicts that are its only “way out” of epochal breakdown and collapse. But while the need to take on and end the depravity, incompetence and unfairness of capitalism grows glaringly more clear, the great blockage of anti-communism remains in place. Urgent and growing debate and discussion needed about workers states and their huge success, as well as dismal revisionist retreats, are avoided and blocked. Nothing sums up the failure and opportunism of the “left” better than their attitudes to the giant achievements of Fidel Castro and the brilliant revolutionary workers state built in Cuba; either sneering and damning it, (openly or by implication) or simply tailending everything it did.

Correct working class contempt for Parliament shows a readiness for revolutionary leadership but entire fake-“left” tied back to voting instead. “No to austerity” (or war) impossible except by ending capitalism. “Left” single issue feminism and “gay rights” are reformist diversions used for reactionary war hate building by capitalism. “Anti-racism” too needs developing to show the class nature of police killings like Baltimore and Ferguson. Fake-”left” unrestricted immigration is pious moralising, an unworkable fantasy solving nothing but driving workers into UKIP’s reactionary arms. Leninist party and polemic must be built

Weird unreal General Election mood reflects total avoidance of real world events, warmongering and the devastating catastrophic failure of bankrupt out-of-time monopoly capitalism. Party proliferation and shallow hype desperately try to keep “democracy” pretence going only to buy time for class war preparations against mass turmoil and upheaval which will erupt as the gigantic world crisis unrolls into real Slump. Post-2008 riots are a tiny hint of the spontaneous revolt to come. Fake- “left” plays reactionary role keeping illusions in parliament alive despite almost universal working class contempt. So too does “left” safe spaces and “no platform” shut down of polemic on single-issue reformism also aid bureaucratic ”Prevent” state censorship of alleged “extremism” – a Nazi catch-all for anti-capitalist ideology.

Fake- “left” play the same games, failing to fill the philosophical and political vacuum left by growing contempt for voting with the revolutionary understanding urgently needed.

But it is also a signal of the barbarism to which the imperialist order will sink, dragging the entire world into the filthiest and most depraved warmongering chaos as its “escape plan” to evade responsibility for the greatest ever catastrophic failure of human society. Capitalism is dictatorship by money and the rich ruling class, and has always been fascist – openly so in much of the Third World and just beneath the surface in the hoodwinking “democracy” of the rich countries.

US arms for Syrian revolt further confirm the lying Goebbels nature of its pretend “rebellion” and expose the ranks of Trots taken in (willingly) by the bogus extension to the “Arab Spring” in Syria and Libya. But the sectarian forces stirred up by the West and feudal reaction in the Gulf states to head off the mass revolt in Egypt, and Tunisia (and continuing Palestinian struggle) and to feed capitalist war, are a double edged sword, potentially turning into the opposite like Noriega Saddam and Osama bin Laden did. Turkey’s revolt is triggered by crisis pressures rather than yet more bogus revolt but is not yet clearly in focus. Trotskyist enthusiasm and Western media bias are suspicious. Untangling the confusion needs Leninist debate

More “condemn terror” from the fake-“left” after the Woolwich knife attack underlines complete capitulation to bourgeois bullying, helping justify the “kill them all” “righteous” reprisals that have already destroyed three Middle Eastern countries and are now tearing Syria to shreds. Jihadist anarcho-individualism may not be the best way to fight and the ideology is bizarre but it has massively stirred public debate which understands full well that capitalist war blitzing is producing the hate and hostility of the Third World. But moralising over wrong “foreign policy” and Stop the War protests do not make the crucial revolutionary point that capitalist crisis is at the bottom of the war drive which would be erupting anyway. War and fascist repression is unstoppable until the whole of imperialism is overthrown. Better leadership for the fight not condemnation is needed

Slump resistance groups and coalitions like “Left Unity” and the “Coalition of Resistance” may be the emerging centrism – halfway revolutionism – that the increasingly vicious Slump crisis is virtually certain to precipitate. But if they are to prove of value to the working class they need to overcome decades of fake-“leftism”, Labourite reformism, revisionism and Trotskyist sour anti-communism, and embrace the fight for revolutionary understanding and clarity about the crisis. That means open debate

Increasingly brutal class-war impositions now forcing the working class everywhere into unemployment, despair, penury and desperation are stirring academic and petty bourgeois intellectual commentary on the capitalist crisis. But the bogus “Marxists” still cannot bring themselves to state baldly that the revolutionary ending of capitalism is the only way forwards out of Slump and onrushing Third World War destruction. The dull brained reformism and revisionism they have stuck to all their lives is unchanged and they simply spread more and further confusions and defeatist despair. What is required in the world is a return to Leninist revolutionary principles and the understanding of the dictatorship of the proletariat as the only way for the onrushing and completely unstoppable catastrophe to be stopped. But that would mean an open polemical debate to re-examine the past mistakes of fake-“leftism” and the retreat from revolutionary principles begun by Stalin.

Desperate cult-of-the-personality deification of Thatcher-ism will not rescue the capitalist ruling class from the worst disintegration and catastrophic failure of all time. Nor will the increasingly demented scapegoating Goebbels campaigns lining up yet more victim states for bullying blitzkrieg and destruction as currently against Pyongyang’s attempts to stand up for itself. But if the world is to stop the slide into penury, starvation and Slump chaos facing tens of millions more day by day as entire countries are bankrupted and trade and currency war tensions escalate there needs to be a return to the grasp of revolutionary perspectives and scientific understanding. Above all the non-stop evasion of the polemics and argument to work out how the world first great socialist experiments gave up on revolution has to end and an open polemic be faced up to for building a scientific Leninist leadership for the great struggles coming

The argument is not “a fair way to share Slump cuts?”, nor “make the bosses pay” nor “how to stimulate the economy”. Not which parliamentary party is “to blame” for the economic failures – but why is there a Slump and Depression at all?? They are ALL to blame because they all continue running capitalism itself. The contradictions of the private profit way of running things alone are to blame. It is not just ruling class greed but how greed prevents re-ordering of the whole world on a planned cooperative basis which need never see Slump and War again. Communism in short, under control of the dictatorship of the working class – which no-one will say, fake “lefts” included. Leninism will

Over-the-top plaudits for Hugo Chávez mislead the working class about his political weaknesses and cover-up complete failure of the fake-“left” to take up the critical questions of revolutionary struggle and overturn of the capitalist system. Chávez can be celebrated for his help to the working class but his refusal to develop an understanding of Marxism and contemptuous dismissal of the Leninist fight for theory is a major weakness which potentially disarms the Venezuelan working class against the sinister counter-revolutionary machinations of Washington, ready to ride roughshod across all pretences about “democracy” as it did with Allende in Chile and numerous massacred struggles in Latin America since, including Obama’s coups against Honduras and Paraguay. Imperialism’s greatest weapon as continuing crisis confirms the historic failure of its system is the confusion of anti-communism and soft-brained “democracy” illusions. Leninism urgently needed

Goebbels level Western hate campaign against desert “terrorist” upheavals reflects the desperate fears of Western imperialism that revolt against its dominance is spreading uncontrollably. Wild exaggerations about the “threat to our ‘democratic’ way of life” in Cameron’s revived talk of “fifty years” of a “war on terror” are ludicrous in themselves, made to keep public fears at fever pitch and capitalist warmongering on the boil, for the oncoming “answer” to slump and Depression. But while “terror” attacks and desert insurgency is not literally threatening Europe, the growing Third World revolt IS a major phenomenon which reflects the huge contradictions of the capitalist order, incapable of moving forwards and out of time historically. It needs to go by revolutionary overturn

Algerian attack and Mali revolts are further symptoms of massive Third World discontent rising at the non-stop oppression and poverty forced on their backs, now intensified dramatically by the catastrophic failure of capitalism which is imposing disaster, penury, starvation and misery everywhere. Western “outrage” is hypocritical humbug and crocodile tears, being used to “justify” the endless war which it has deliberately set going itself, to escape its own disastrous historical failure and the catastrophic collapse of the private profit making system. These blows against imperialist interests are no more to be condemned than any other desperate struggles from Palestine to Pakistan. But the fake-“lefts” are already lining up with imperialism as they did over the World Trade Centre attacks, and continue to do with their foul joining in anti-Islam scapegoating. “Principled” revisionism is no better, hiding behind convoluted “conspiracy” theories to “condemn terror” as well

Fake-"left" confusion, muddle and outright anti-communism is increasingly exposed by horrifying civil war agony death and destruction set going by imperialism in Syria as part of its counter-revolution against the Egyptian and Tunisian revolution. Their brain dead opportunism and even outright capitulation to imperialist propaganda simply aids the monopoly capitalist counter-revolution deliberately provoked to break up and disintegrate another "rogue state" and keep world war atmosphere on the boil. Capitalism needs war to evade its responsibility for the catastrophic Slump disaster sweeping the planet like a hurricane. But the hollow fascist fraud in Syria has already fallen apart in a mess of violent squabbling for loot and warlord rivalries. Imperialism's proxies need soundly defeating to open up real revolution.

Cameron "gay is normal" TV stonewalling on abuse scandals and Obama "gay marriage" election victory both demonstrate how homosexual single-issue lobbying, like feminism and black nationalism, play into the hands of the degenerating capitalist imperialist ruling class and prop it up even as the catastrophic meltdown failure of the private profit system is stirring revolutionary questioning everywhere. Aggressive allegations of "homophobia" have been used for decades to block out scientific questioning on the gay issue itself and by extension all revolutionary polemic and challenge, part of the long fake-"left" suppression of Leninist science.

Panicked Washington halt to the Zionist fascist onslaught on Gaza's desperate masses is nothing to do with humanitarian concern and "international restraint" but fear of the revolutionary wave rising throughout the Middle East. The Zionist land-stealers' horrifying onslaught threatened to unite conflict ridden Middle East masses from Turkey to Syria to Libya as the "Arab street" and other peoples seethe with justified rage at the monstrous Nazism of the artificial "Israel". The West's carefully manipulated bogus "uprisings" in Libya and Syria to fragment and violently destroy the genuine revolution begun in Tunisia and Egypt, using NATO Turkey and the feudal Gulf states to foster reactionary "rebellions" are all jeopardised.

$Multi-billion US election hype and manipulated "democracy" is nothing but argument within the ruling class about how to deal with the catastrophic failure of the capitalist world system. How fast and aggressively can it step up class war to drive up the rate of exploitation and international war aggression? Either way "shock and awe" blitzing and death squad droning to bully the world into continuing acceptance of bankrupt US domination and tyrannical exploitation will continue and escalate, dragging the entire planet into renewed World War disaster with Iran and Sudan in the sights. Obama's first term saw escalated war, drone killing, war-crime death squad assassination, torture, NATO blitzing and coups – ever more openly fascist action under cover of single-issue reform to hoodwink section of the working class (with fake-"left" help). Crisis spiral into Depression and repression is unstoppable except by revolution. Major class discussion crucial to build Leninism

The long overdue march against the cuts exposes not only the opportunist complacency and reluctance to fight of official trade unionism and Labour but the posturing and pretences of all shades of fake-"leftism". Saying "no to austerity" and "rejecting cuts" is like telling a hurricane to stop blowing. None even begin to raise the world shattering revolutionary questions that the coming Depression and World War puts in front of workers. Worst of all are empty blustering calls for "general strike" by assorted Trots (who do not remotely think it is really going to happen) and who give the working class no idea of what would happen next. They do not raise the revolutionary perspectives which are vital and their poisonous anti-communism feeds the world imperialist counter-revolution and suppression.

Posturing Trotskyist bravado calling for "political" and general strikes over the shot-down mineworkers in South Africa is so much empty bluster covering up complete failure to begin talking about the revolutionary solution which is required in South Africa just as everywhere else. Their real message is sour defeatism on achievements of the anti-apartheid struggle, and capitulation to imperialist warmongering everywhere.

West's panicked subversion in Syria to provoke civil war and intimidate the genuine Arab Spring revolution in Egypt is increasingly obviously a set up job swallowed only by the fake "left" petty bourgeois gullibility of the Trots. But the Stalinist defencism uncritically "supporting" the bourgeois nationalist Ba'athist regime is little better than the anti-communism of the Trots, feeding just as many reformist illusions and ending up in the same "No to War" social pacifist dead end.

Election bullying of Greek petty bourgeois to force acceptance of Slump bailout will save neither Greek capitalism, the rest of Europe or a panicked world bourgeoisie. Neither will the "soft coup" stealing of the election by the military stooges for imperialism in Cairo save the Egyptian bourgeois and their CIA masters. Catastrophic failure of the profit making class domination of the world is unravelling faster and faster whatever props are put underneath it. But ever worse Slump deprivations and world warmongering will continue until capitalism is totally overthrown and the world begins to build planned socialism everywhere under the control of the dictatorship of the working class. World revolutionary ferment grows mightily but vital revolutionary theory and leadership for the working class to take power is still blocked by fake-"left" opportunism and slyness.

Imperialist class war, and warmongering driven by the unstoppable capitalist crisis catastrophe is the true source and generator of Nazism and fascist atrocities.
