“ The first duty of any revolutionary is to tell the truth.
Fooling the people, arousing in them deceptive illusions will always lead to the worst consequences, and I believe that they should be warned against excessive optimism. “
Fidel Castro, 1959
1- THE CAPITALIST SYSTEM THROUGH X-RAYS WITH THE SPANISH SOCIOLOGIST ANDRÉS PIQUERAS: THE UNRECOVERABLE CRISIS OF CAPITALISM (SP)
A summary of the most important points of this presentation: “the development of the productive forces in capitalism, which has developed like no other up to now, has reached a top when it is no longer accompanied by an increase in VALUE and surplus value, which was translated into profit and which are the basic components of capital . Less and less human labor is used for the production of commodities, more dead labor and less living labor. Surplus value is not extracted from machines. The more machines are introduced, the less surplus value. The profit rate falls inexorably.( see the graphic)
None of these new technologies, internet, biotechnology, automation etc. can reverse this trend of a new wave of accumulation, nothing comparable to what has been electricity , the telegraph, the combustion engine , when human beings radically changed their physical environment.
The capitalists are unable to provoke a new wave of accumulation because these are technologies that save human labour. Today jobs are destroyed in an open or camouflaged way . What counts are the total hours of work done, which today are decreasing, and wages are falling below the value of the labor force …..The processes of re-proletarianization of society, of dispossession of the means of production, the means of life and the social means of protection and security, of what was called “social security”, are set in motion.
Wage labor is a historical aberration. It is a double exploitation because they leave you without your means of production and without your product of work….The system becomes more and more fictitious.
ENERGY IS BASIC and the rate of energy return makes the capitalist system unworkable. This leads to social warfare and total control/surveillance which will increase as capitalism tries to “reinvent itself”. The capitalist system is in TOTAL WAR. “
The need to change the mode of production is the only solution and a necessity – towards socialism.
2- CHINA: A MORE DETERMINED ANTI-WESTERN STAND AND THE RETURN TO MARXISM (IF IT EVER REALLY GONE) – AS YANKEE IMPERIALISM INTENSIFIES GLOBAL CONFLICTS. (SP)
Here are the important conclusions that can be drawn from the 20th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party according to the militant and very brilliant Spanish analyst Alberto Cruz .
These are mainly : the return of public policies on the privatization of the economy, a greater influence of Marxist and anti-imperialist thought for the defense of its national and territorial sovereignty and a fairer international system with a strategic alliance – RUSSIA – CHINA reinforced.
The word “socialism ” appears several times, although with the usual addition of “Chinese style “, and this in a framework where “people” and “development” complement each other. On the contrary, and still in comparison with the 19th Congress, references to “market economy” and “reform” have diminished. ….More in the link:
3- AN EXCELLENT HISTORICAL DOCUMENTARY BY RUSSIA TODAY JOURNALISTS : “THE MASKS OF FASCISM” – NOT TO BE MISSED (ESP)
Note: a documentary that goes beyond official bourgeois history, and adds facts unknown to the general public, especially in the West. Of course, the alliance between fascism and big capital is a subject that many analysts have already studied and confirmed , but there are other historical facts like the pacts prior to the invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1939 by all Western countries with Nazi Germany. – German non-aggression pact in 1934, Anglo -German naval agreement in 1935 , Munich agreement in 1938, German non-aggression pact with Estonia and Latvia, ..) with the aim of isolating the Union Soviet Union and to leave it alone in the battle against Hitler’s barbarism which remains unknown .
Also Operation Dropshot in 1949 to finish off the USSR , or Operation Unthinkable, plans for nuclear attacks such as the Troy a n plan, Pinscher, H a lfmoon, etc. (the same name for the same operation) … are facts little reported in the historiography of the EU but which we have a duty to know in order to understand today’s news and the imperialist wars against Russia .
Listen to Mark Baltamai or Andrzej Mihnevsky :
RT : ‘ Almost all of Nazi Germany’s Europe participated in the murder of Soviet citizens first and Slavs in particular ‘
. Andrzej Mihnevsky (Poland): ” To equate Stalin with Hitler, to equate German Nazism and Soviet socialism, is a mistake from the historical point of view, it is absurd, it is impossible to agree with that , it is simply unacceptable. »
. Mark Baltamai (USA) : “Any attempt to classify the Soviet Union as the instigator of World War II from a historical point of view is absolute nonsense”
4- THE LATIN AMERICAN AND CARIBBEAN STUDENT CONGRESS WAS HELD IN CARACAS FROM 20 TO 26 NOVEMBER 2022- (OCLAE) (ESP)
There are 38 student federations and movements of high school, university and postgraduate students from the 24 nations that make up the Organization of Latin American and Caribbean Students (OCLAE), founded by Commander Fidel Castro 56 years ago in La Havana as a coordinating organization for student anti-imperialist struggles throughout the region . It has over 100 million members and advocates for free, quality education in every corner of our America and the world.
EDUCATION IS A BASTION THAT CANNOT BE COMMERCIALIZED ! Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua are examples for Our America.
5- IMPERIALIST WAR AGAINST RUSSIA: THE NEOFASCIST CONNECTION (UKRAINE, ITALY, ZIONIST ENTITY) (FR)
Five members of an Italian neo-Nazi organization known as the “Order of Hagal” were arrested on November 15, 2022 while another member is still wanted by authorities. He was in Ukraine, fighting Russian forces alongside the Azov Battalion, which was officially integrated into the Ukrainian army.
But Ukraine is not the only country to have been visited by members of the Order of Hagal; “Some members also went to the Zionist entity to train in Krav Maga and the handling of long and short weapons,” according to Italian police officials. In fact, they even received certificates for completing the training…
6- IMPERIALIST WAR IN SYRIA: UNITED STATES SUPPORTS KURDS IN NORTHERN SYRIA AS TURKEY LEADS ANTI-TERRORIST OFFENSIVE. (FR)
Note: To assert that Northern Syria (so-called “ Rojava ” or Syrian Tabarnia) has always been Kurdish and fundamentally Kurdish, is a total mistake .
The original Kurdish population was concentrated and is concentrated in various distinct nuclei (Hassaka, Afrin, districts of Aleppo —Sheikh Maksoud— or Damascus —Rash Al-Din— and an infinity of localities) interspersed with Arab populations and other ethnic groups, without constituting a homogeneous national territorial continuum, as there is, however, in neighboring countries . In this northern area, the Kurds cohabited with the Arabs, Armenians, Assyrians, Turkmens, Chaldeans, Circassians and other minorities, which are those who globally constitute the majority, except as we have said , in some specific isolated points where the Kurds were a relative majority.
The Kurdish demographic, economic, social, cultural and political realities of each state in which the Kurds are divided have their own characteristics, and are strongly conditioned by the history of each of these groups and the responses each state has made to the problem. .
As indicated in the 2023 budget document released by the Pentagon in April 2022 , Washington plans to supply Kurdish units in Syria with $183 million worth of weapons, ammunition and equipment as part of the counter-terrorism program. Islamic State.
In addition, the Pentagon intends to recruit 3,500 new members into the PKK and Kurdish self-defense units next year. Thus, the number of people who receive money from the Pentagon budget under these organizations will increase to 19,500……
The role that Kurdish militias play in northern Syria with training and financial support from the United States is clearly an imperialist role no offense to the Atlanticist leftists.
7- CHILE/ PALESTINE- INAUGURATION OF PALESTINE SQUARE IN TEMUCO IN SOUTHERN CHILE (VIDEO) (FR/SP)
We said it on Radio Carmen last September in Tunis , the Palestinian community in Chile is old and is the largest outside West Asia . https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCA_bpjf_OHK_7155u4Lv7tw .
Initiatives like these are not rare, and they are multiplying in Chile, see the boycott of Zionist imports by the government , or the prohibition of inter-university exchanges with the same colonial entity . We are happy that the Municipality of Temuco , – land of hundreds of Palestinian emigrants since the 19th century in conditions of extreme harshness – gives honor and dignity to the land of Palestine and to the Palestinians.
