Is the Left suitably equipped?
The pro-capitalist economists, when asked about the current worsening situation, are up-in-arms - they just don't know what has to be done!
Some are even referring-back to the result of the Great Depression of 1929-1941, a World War, as the only way to stop the alternative: Social Revolution!
Yet, the First World War didn't stop the Revolution in Russia! It probably enabled it.
The consensus among the group of economists involved in this set of interviews, varied from making the People pay for it all by a "new kind of inflation", to a cancelling of State Debts via a World War with creditor nations!
But, of course, no-one asked the People.
And where is the solution of the Left?
What is delivered currently the UK is a long, slow rebuilding to what they already have in Europe, with Socialist and Communist Parties and a Trades Union Movement. But, that is certainly no better than the current reaction directly from the People, which has been the Yellow Vest Protests in France.
But nothing yet from Revolutionaries!
Capitalism is finished: and if we don't bury-it-deep, it will pull us all down with it, into another Dark Age, if not something worse.
The rulers of the Capitalist powers have Nuclear Weapons, and the means to deliver them. And they are the only people to have ever used them before - in Japan!
Much as I am in favour of democracy in the workplace, I'm afraid Worker Co-ops are nowhere near enough to counter Capital's downward spiral. The Super-rich will have to be separated from their Wealth-and-Power! And, any threat of that, will cause them to turn, once again, to Fascism to restore the situation. This is what Fascism is for.
Do you doubt it?
Mass actions will be necessary - BUT of the order of The Yellow Jackets TIMES 100!
New political parties will be necessary, for the likes of the Blairites in the British Labour Party cannot be trusted. And both the Republicans and the Democrats in the USA are hopelessly tied to their funding by the Rich who are causing this mess.
The Left must organise into political Parties committed to terminating Capitalism and establishing Socialism by Revolutionary Means.
Be prepared to defend your streets, your families and your comrades against the mounting forces of the Right! For they will come.
FIGHT NOW FOR SOCIALISM
