Communists discuss U.S. path to socialism

April 21, 2012

Sam Webb Communist Party USA Chair

NEW YORK – The Communist Party USA has opened a national conference here this weekend. The logical assumption is that the 140 delegates present today from all over the country will focus on what they can do to defeat the right wing in this year’s elections. And while this is, in fact, very true, the delegates note that they intend to go much, much further.

“This conference will not ignore the elections, to be sure,” Sam Webb, the party’s chair, declared in his opening remarks. “But it has, at the same time, a grander design. It will connect the dots between our immediate and longer-range political tasks.

“Or to put it differently, we hope to connect the struggle at the ballot box today with the struggle for socialism tomorrow.”

There were many new faces present at the conference, as Webb noted: “Many of the new delegates are young people, who are as committed now to a socialist future as were the older generations of Communists in the past.”

One of the things driving their commitment is concern about the growing threat to humanity’s future coming from environmental degradation. “Almost daily,” he said, “we hear of species extinction, global warming, deforestation, resource depletion, and on and on to the point where we are nearly accustomed to the gathering catastrophe.

“Our planet cannot indefinitely absorb the impact of profit-driven, growth-without-limits capitalism; the earth is sending distress signals to its inhabitants. And they will become louder, still, as long as the reproduction of capital dominates the reproduction of nature.”

The Communists gathered here today say that capitalism – which once generated jobs and rising income – has devolved into a generator of unemployment, inequality, and insecurity. And with that understanding, they don’t believe that the future offers a restoration of growth and rising income – that can only come, they feel, with a turn in the balance of class and social forces.

Socialism – more than a good idea, is “imperative,” as Webb put it, “to preserve peace and our planet, expand democracy, eliminate gross racial, gender, and other forms of inequality, and to provide a secure life for the billions living on this earth.”

Given their commitment to this goal, the delegates are preparing to discuss the various stages through which they see the struggle for socialism progressing.

Defeating right-wing extremism is seen as simply the first stage of the fight. Webb warned of that stage’s critical nature. “If you don’t believe me,” he added, “take a look at Wisconsin, Michigan, and Ohio, where Republicans took control of the levers of power in 2010 and then ruthlessly rolled back rights, eliminated social programs, and attacked the labor movement.

Assuming an eventual victory over the right wing, the Communists see workers and allies then being able to enter an “anti-corporate” stage of the struggle, where they expect the fight for a peoples’ agenda will bring the labor movement at odds with corporate/economic political power.

“This stage of struggle doesn’t supplant capitalism,” Webb remarked. Instead, it “brings the socialist stage closer as tens of millions become convinced in the course of the struggle that capitalism doesn’t work for them.”

In the next stage (the socialist stage), Communists see a substantial shift to the left among the “core forces” of social change, a deepening of anti-racist consciousness and practice, the consolidation of the anti-corporate alliance, and the growth of the Communist Party and other left organizations.

“This stage will culminate in the election of a peoples’ government,” Webb stated.

Important parts of this stage, he noted, are “steps to control the movement of capital, to institute a tax policy that weighs heavily on the wealthy, and to place under democratic control sectors of the economy, such as finance, that are a threat to the peoples’ government and a socialist revolution.”

‘CHANGE FOR THE GOOD’: BECK EXPLAINS WHY PROGRESSIVES UNDERMINE THE INSTITUTIONS AMERICANS TRUST MOST

April 23, 2012

By  Tiffany Gabbay

EXCERPT:

Communism in America

“They have been working on this for about 100 years,” Beck said.


Reminding viewers of the ten planks of the Communist Manifesto reflected in American life, Beck asked what one who wants to destroy the free market would do in order to remold it “closer to the heart’s desire.” In order for Van Jones, et al, to wipe the slate clean and “rebuild the dream” that has been in motion for the last “100 years,” progressives have had to become “more adept at duping people,” Beck noted. After reviewing the 10 tenets, he then asked viewers to examine how in-sync many of them are with current American policies. “Look at the things that you are being told are good for you.”

But it’s “all for the greater good.”

Drawing from another recent occurrence in which Communist Party of America members unveiled their long-term plans for the nation, Beck noted that Florida Congressman Allen West is on the group’s radar given his recent comments about Communist Democratic lawmakers. Communist Party leader Sam Webb said they would make it a point to defeat ”right-wing extremism” in the form of the Congressional freshman.

Of course, the media has come out in full force to assail West over his comments, despite the fact that the GOP lawmaker is, according to Beck “100%” accurate.” Reviewing various the Congressional Progressive Caucus, he then asked how many of the 76 members have “raved about Fidel Castro” and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The question was of course, rhetorical.

A matter of grave importance 

Reviewing these chilling developments of late, Beck said that America is dangerously close to the precipice, with “one foot in the free market and the other in Communism.” There is no free market “as we know it” anymore and this election is of utmost importance.

He also reminded viewers that progressives will play hardball this election and that complacency through not voting simply isn’t an option if Americans wish to head down the path of the Founding Fathers and not see the destruction of the free market.

This next president will chart that course. “In four years it will be too late to decide.” Beck added that ensuring a decisive, rather than close victory is essential to sending progressives the message that Americans do not wish to discard the Constitution.

RUSSIAN PRESIDENT MEDVEDEV SAYS HE WANTS OBAMA TO BE RE-ELECTED TO AVOID AMERICA’S “CONSERVATIVE WING”

=====================

FORMER SOVIET UNION PREMIERE MIKHAIL GORBACHEV SAYS HE‘LL ’SUPPORT OBAMA’

Excerpt:

 ‘I think you Americans need your own Perestroika.’ And 12,000 people rose from their seats and gave me an ovation. And I think that the elections that followed brought a new spirit to America. Of course, there are many people who don’t like what President Obama is doing. But, my opinion of him is very [favorable]. I will support him. However, there are still vested interests who want another Cold War, another arms race, weapons trade, interventions. They will not succeed.”

This raises the question of who Gorbachev means. The major enemies of the United States in the modern day tend to be Islamic theocratic states – in many cases, countries that tried to fight off the Soviet Union with equal zeal. Is he worried about another confrontation between the United States and Russia? Or does he know something about that “flexibility” that Obama promised Medvedev that the rest of us don’t?

Venceremos Brigade ties to Radicals in America and Cuba



This is an excerpt from a 1982 CBC documentary on the KGB activities in North America. This portion concerns the ties between the Weathermen and the DGI (Cuban Intelligence) – By the way take special note of what is said at 1:14, 1:23, and 9:06


===========================================================

Remember S.T.O.R.M.?  Van Jones’ group?

Now-defunct San Francisco Bay-Area Marxist-Maoist collective
Had close ties to the Revolutionary Communist Youth Brigade and the Revolutionary Communist Party
Advocated social “change on a revolutionary scale”
Was commited to revolutionary Marxist politics
Blamed American foreign policy for the 9/11 attacks

Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM) was a San Francisco Bay-Area Marxist-Maoist collective whose origins dated back to Roots Against War (RAW), “a group of young people of color who came together to fight against the Gulf War in the early 1990s.” Several of RAW’s leaders were veterans of the Revolutionary Communist Youth Brigade, the youth wing of the Revolutionary Communist Party. Filling its ranks mostly with nonwhites, RAW engaged in “confrontational” and “militant” forms of “direct action” that often saw its members “defying police commands” or “plunging through police lines and barricades.”

In 1999 STORM formed a Culture & Propaganda Work Group (CPWG) “to nurture new revolutionary art and artists”; “to produce street-level agitation and propaganda”; “to bring cultural workers into political action”; and “to build networks among revolutionary cultural workers.” In the summer of 1999, CPWG members participated in a “Venceremos Brigade” that traveled to Fidel Castros Cuba “to see and support one of the world’s few surviving socialist states.” Those members “came back with a heightened understanding of both socialism and capitalism and a stronger commitment to red politics.”

=========================================================

Carl Davidson is an American Marxist who serves as a national steering committee member of United for Peace and Justice, an organization chaired by the pro-Castro socialist Leslie Cagan. Davidson also co-chairs the group Chicagoans Against War & Injustice, which has formed alliances with such organizations as the League of Women Voters, Rainbow/PUSH, Citizen Action, People for the American Way, the Progressive Caucus, the Congressional Black Caucus and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. Aiming ultimately to transform the United States into a socialist nation, Davidson advocates the mobilization of “new grassroots majorities required for progressive, systemic change.”

As a college student in the 1960s, Davidson was a national secretary of Students of a Democratic Society and a national leader of the anti-Vietnam War movement. Davidson and Tom Hayden take credit for having launched in 1969 the “Venceremos Brigades,” which covertly transported hundreds of young Americans to Cuba to help harvest sugar cane and interact with Havana’s communistrevolutionary leadership. (The Brigades were organized by Fidel Castro’s Cuban intelligence agency, which trained “brigadistas” in guerrilla warfare techniques, including the use of arms and explosives.)

WHY would Cuba make an audio message about the Venceremos Brigade, praise Bill Ayers and Obama, and admit the connections of Cuban brigadistas to Cuba?

Notation under video:

I got this in my email a few days ago, sounded catchy so I put some pictures to it. The sound is entirely in Spanish, so I’ve come up with a translation, but I didn’t want to cover up the actual words used.

–Start

Esteemed members of the Venceremos Brigade/

I am proud to be standing here in front of you to report that the mission of the distinguished agent, William Ayers, has culminated in incalculable success. For the first time in the history of the Cuban Revolution, the vanguard of all independent and revolutionary movements around the world, we have been able to infiltrate the government of the United States with an agent of international socialism. Yes, comrades, I refer to our brother in arms,who we met through Ayers that glorious day in our training camp, Barack Obama./

Now, with the guaranteed victory of Obama in the polls, the revolution in Cuba, the revolution in Venezuela,in Bolivia, in Iran, and around the Earth, will have the US as an ally, with all of its political, economic, and military power. In the first month of the Obama presidency, the Comandant predicts that the US will pay reparations to Cuba for their criminal embargo over the many cruel decades./

The Comandant informs us that Obama will surrender to Cuba various nuclear arms in a form of self-defense. In case of a likely coup./

Comrades, we have destroyed Imperialism from the inside, now that it has become difficult to attack from outside. This clandestine campaign, begun 45 years ago, demonstrates that though the fight may be long, he who does not give up will emerge victorious./

We regret that it was the Chicago cell instead of the Miami cell that was able to ascend to the highest governmental position./

Meanwhile, we will continue to support the liberals with fanatical fervor./

Friends, this is the true change. The hope of a new day./

Comrades, yes we can! Long live the Revolution! Long live Fidel! Long live Obama! And long live Cuba!

[….]

Chavez might have taken a cue from the Cuban Maestro’s own visit in 1995 to New York (a city he twice tried to incinerate. See full documentation in Fidel; Hollywood’s Favorite Tyrant) for the U.N.’s 50th anniversary festivities. “The Toast of Manhattan!” crowed Time magazine about Castro’s reception by the General Assembly and later by Manhattan’s Beautiful People.

“The Hottest Ticket in Manhattan!” read a Newsweek story that week, referring to the social swirl that engulfed Castro. After Castro’s whooping, hollering, foot-stomping ovation in the General Assembly, he was fêted by New York’s best and brightest, hobnobbing with dozens of Manhattan’s glitterati, pundits and power brokers.

First, there was dinner at the Council on Foreign Relations. After holding court there for a rapt David Rockefeller, along with Robert McNamara, Dwayne Andreas and Random House’s Harold Evans, Castro flashed over to Mort Zuckerman’s Fifth Avenue pad, where a throng of Beltway glitterati, including a breathless Mike Wallace, Peter Jennings, Tina Brown, Bernard Shaw and Barbara Walters, all jostled for a brief tryst, cooing and gurgling to Castro’s every comment.

All clamored for autographs and photo ops. Diane Sawyer was so overcome in the mass killer’s presence that she rushed up, broke into that toothy smile of hers, wrapped her arms around Castro and smooched him warmly on the cheek.

“You people are the cream of the crop!” beamed the bearded Cuban man of the people to the smiling throng that surrounded him.

“Hear, hear!” chirped the delighted guests while tinkling their wine glasses in appreciation and glee.

And the mass murderer had barely scratched the surface of his fan club. According to the U.S. Cuba Trade and Economic Council, on that visit Castro received 250 dinner invitations from Manhattan celebrities and power brokers.

Fidel’s reception at the United Nations Millennium Summit in 2000 was no less rapturous. Afterward, he made his way to Harlem’s Abyssinian Baptist Church, where pastor Calvin Butts gushed: “It is in our tradition to welcome all who are visionaries, revolutionaries and who seek the liberation of all people. God Bless you, Fidel!”

“The mainly African American audience, which included New York Democratic representatives Charles Rangel and Nydia Velasquez, enthusiastically greeted the Communist leader with a ten minute standing ovation,” reported People’s Weekly World. “Chants of ‘VIVA FIDEL!’ resounded from the rafters.”

Harlem’s delirious ovation for the incarcerator of the century’s longest suffering black political prisoner rose to the level of an earthquake – to a hurricane. The very walls and rafters shook with shrieks of “FIDEL! VIVA FIDEL!!” Elombe Brathe, head of the Patrice Lumumba Coalition and chair for the meeting, asked the audience, “Who would you rather come to Harlem? Fidel or Giuliani?”

“FIDEL!” They erupted. “FIDEL! VIVA FIDEL!” Then, with Congresswoman Maxine Waters looking on in rapture, Charlie Rangel waddled up to the podium beside the Great One. Fidel – oomph! – finally caught his breath, beamed and returned the rotund senator’s mighty bear hug.

Chavez, scurrying from a hostile New York with Rangel’s carping ringing in his ears, can only read these stories and weep. For simply saying the U.N. “smelt of sulfur,” Chavez was censured by New Yorkers. After trying twice to make the entire city smell of charred flesh, his former mentor, Fidel Castro, got a reception to shame Simon and Garfunkel’s in Central Park.

THIS from the Communist Party USA’s …… People’s World website:

[…]



Now that the finance reform measure is law, attention is turning to who the President will choose to lead the newly created consumer protection bureau.

Progressives are pushing for the selection of Elizabeth Warren, a Harvard law professor who has championed the cause of consumer protection for more than a decade. She is credited for her role, as an adviser to the Obama administration, in creating the consumer protection agency itself.

Labor unions and consumer advocate groups have mounted lobbying efforts in favor of her selection.

Rep. Jackie Speir, D,Calif., in demanding the selection of Warren, said, “The Wall Street bankers who got the benefits of a massive government bailout weren’t able to kill the CFPB and they certainly don’t like Warren. Some say she’s ruffled feathers. The good old boy network of investors is uncomfortable around her. Is this because she is a woman in a male-dominated ‘sport,’ or is it that she’s an advocate for middle-class families who sees nothing amusing about winning and losing with people’s life savings?”

While most GOP senators are expected to oppose her nomination, conservative Democrats and “moderate” Republicans are still on the fence. “I’m not going to speculate on anybody and won’t make up my mind on anyone until the president has made a nomination,” said Nebraska Democrat Ben Nelson.

“We obviously have to have a strong individual in that capacity,” GOP Sen. Olympia Snowe said, “but whether Warren is the right person for the job remains to be seen.”

Felix Salmon, in a Reuters opinion piece urging the White House to nominate Warren, said, “The CFPB has been set up to be very independent. As such, it should have an independently-minded head, rather than someone who can be trusted to fall in line behind Treasury and/or other regulators if and when there are any clashes. It’s never easy for a politician to nominate someone who they know will cause trouble for them down the road, but if anybody can do it, Obama can.”

Some say Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is working to undermine her appointment in retaliation for Warren’s sharp attacks on the Treasury Department during her chairmanship of the Congressional Oversight Panel for the bailout funds.

On the several occasions Geithner appeared before her panel, Warren was relentless in her efforts to pin him down on terms of the bailout that she said were bad for taxpayers – particularly the 100 percent payout to AIG’s credit-default swap counterparties.

While Treasury officials have denied blocking the appointment of Warren, lobbyists for banks have reportedly floated other names including Assistant Treasury Secretary Michael Barr and Justice Depeartment competition policy chief Gene Kimmelman.

The improvement in support for Democrats noted in the latest Gallup poll, according to the polling organization itself, are the result, at least in part, of the party’s success at getting Wall Street Reform through Congress last week. The poll was conducted July 12-18, as news of that success was out front in all the media.

The poll showed that increased support from independents explained some of the gains made by Democrats.

Forty-nine percent of voters said they’d prefer a Democratic candidate for Congress if this November’s election contests were held today, while 43 percent expressed support for a generic Republican candidate.

That support is up from a virtual 47-46 percent tie between Democrats and Republicans in tracking polls a week earlier.

While independents still favored Republican candidates 43 percent to 39, that margin narrowed from the 14 point lead the GOP maintained only one week earlier.

What the CPUSA fails to tells readers from the same website about generic voting is:

Republican Enthusiasm Spikes

Simultaneous with increased support for Democratic congressional candidates, Gallup polling last week found Republican voters expressing significantly more enthusiasm about voting in the 2010 midterms. The 51% of Republicans saying they are “very enthusiastic” about voting this fall is up from 40% the week prior, and is the highest since early April — shortly after passage of healthcare reform. Democratic enthusiasm is unchanged, at 28%.

Congress Ranks Last in Confidence in Institutions
Fifty percent “little”/”no” confidence in Congress reading is record high

July 22, 2010

PRINCETON, NJ — Gallup’s 2010 Confidence in Institutions poll finds Congress ranking dead last out of the 16 institutions rated this year. Eleven percent of Americans say they have a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in Congress, down from 17% in 2009 and a percentage point lower than the previous low for Congress, recorded in 2008.

The Gallup poll was conducted July 8-11, shortly before Congress passed a major financial regulatory reform bill.

Underscoring Congress’ image problem, half of Americans now say they have “very little” or no confidence in Congress, up from 38% in 2009 — and the highest for any institution since Gallup first asked this question in 1973. Previous near-50% readings include 48% found for the presidency in 2008, and 49% for the criminal justice system in 1994.

This year’s poll also finds a 15-point drop in high confidence in the presidency, to 36% from 51% in June 2009. Over the same period, President Barack Obama’s approval rating fell by 11 points, from 58% to 47%. However, confidence in the presidency remains higher than in 2008 — the last year of George W. Bush’s term — when the figure was 26%.

The Road to Socialism? Lenin’s Thoughts Coupled with Today’s Marxists (Progressive Caucus, SEIU,AFL-CIO,AFSCME, etc. promoting economic and social justice)

 

march 19, 2010

To Socialism! How?

By Daniel Rubin

Excerpts are posted here; read full article HERE.

Lenin’s analysis of Marxism is that it consists of three interdependent aspects – its philosophy of dialectical and historical materialism, its political economy of capitalism, and its theory of socialist revolution. The first aspect provides both its methodology and its laws and theory of social development. The second focuses on relations of people to each other in the process of production and the laws and theory of the development of the mode of production. The heart of the theory of socialist revolution is the Marxist theory of strategy and tactics. Strategy deals with the qualitative turns in the balance of forces that it is necessary to seek and the class and social forces and political trends and social movements that can be won for that qualitative turn, and the main opponent in relation to that turn. Tactics deals with the most useful issues, demands, forms of struggle and forms of organization to achieve the alignment of class and social forces, in the first place, necessary to win the strategic objective or qualitative turn in the balance of forces. Tactics should serve the objective of realizing the strategy.

The whole of the writings of Marx, Engels and Lenin dealing with advancing the struggle for progress and socialism center on defining what would constitute a qualitative turn in the relationship of class and social forces that moves forward, and then defining the class and social forces for those goals and against them. Beginning in The Communist Manifesto, Marx and Engels call on the developing German working class movement to ally with the German Democratic Party. This was the party of the rising German capitalist class, for the purpose of replacing feudalism. Already we see the concept of alliance of the working class with a temporary ally which will certainly later become its main opponent. This is the same idea that Lenin puts forward in Left Wing Communism of alliances no matter how temporary or partial with other class and social forces.

In 1935, the world Communist movement at the 7th World Congress, including the CPUSA, agreed there was a necessary stage prior to the socialist revolution and that was the defeat of world fascism and its threat around the world including within the US, that would require a united front of the working class on the basis of the anti-fascist struggle and a popular front of all other class and social forces with the working class, including the democratic section of the capitalist class, to defeat the fascist section of the capitalist class and open the road for further progress.

In 1952-54 the CPUSA concluded in its then new basic program that there was a necessary strategic stage defined as radically curbing the power of the monopolies necessary to open the way to working class political power and the construction of socialism. This was based on the recognition that capitalism was dominated completely by its monopoly capital sector but there were other sectors of capitalism that need not always line up with the monopolies.

In 1980, on the initiative of Gus Hall, the Party called attention to a differentiation in the ranks of the monopoly capitalists between an ultra right sector and a more moderate sector. He projected the building of an all people’s front to defeat the ultra right. This position was developed further over the years and codified in the new basic program adopted in 2005 at the 28th Convention.

This included the concept that we sought a coalition of class forces led by the working class and labor movement in which there were core allies of the working class consisting of the racially and nationally oppressed, women and youth, allied with additional forces such as the LGBT community, seniors, family farmers, small business, professionals, intellectuals, and self-employed, and even the more moderate and reasonable monopoly capitalist sector to defeat reaction (the ultra right) led by a sector of monopoly capital based in the military-industrial complex; pharmaceuticals, a section of finance capital, etc.

We thus concluded there would need to be three stages of struggle to socialism, (1) that of defeating the ultra right; (2) the radical curbing of the power of monopoly as a whole and (3) the stage of seeking and winning working class led political power in alignment with the other core forces and additional allies for the purpose of constructing a socialist society. The victory at each of these stages would shift the relationship of forces in favor of the interests of the working class and other core forces and would make it substantially easier to move on to the next stage.

Lenin argued many times that propaganda and agitation were needed but alone would never win socialism. He argued that the millions learned through their own experience in struggle which required a mass action level based on what masses were willing currently to undertake. This means that the struggle for reforms, no matter how small, were necessary to being able to engage the millions in the experience they needed in struggle to advance their consciousness and activity. The path to revolution was impossible except through the struggle for reforms. The struggle for reforms and “reformism” were different things. The reformist views reforms as completing all that is necessary, as completely satisfying the needs of the working class and thus bringing the struggle to an end in themselves. And Lenin pointed out the working class needed victories, alongside of the inevitable defeats of struggle, to learn their own strength and to develop full class consciousness. Agitation was important when combined with the current level of struggle to prepare to draw the lessons needed to go on to amore advanced levels of struggle. The purpose of putting forward intermediate strategic goals and stages is to be able to involve the millions in struggle at the level for which they are prepared to act and in doing so win a victory which shifts the balance of class and social forces and makes possible millions struggling for the next possible qualitative shift in the relationship of forces, each of which moves the struggle ahead toward socialism and makes the advance easier and more certain because of the prior shifts in relationship of forces achieved in previous stages.

Thus the defining of intermediate strategic goals and the struggle for these reforms is the only possible road to socialism. A policy of no fight for reforms, no intermediate strategic goals is tantamount to a policy of only propaganda and agitation and the worse the better. These approaches pose to the masses of working people what one’s aims really are, whether they are really on the side of the working people.

Propaganda Lenin defined as being for the ultimate goals, for socialism, relating it to the present level of mass struggle, but not expecting it to become the cause of the millions as yet, but rather something to be seriously considered by the most advanced and thereby to be important to building the organizations of the advanced forces, the Communist Party, etc. Thus it is important but on its own will not win socialism or be the basis of masses entering into and learning from their own experience in struggle.

In a certain sense, today when the millions are not ready to follow the lead of the Communists, even when the Party circulates material widely that deals only with immediate issues of struggle and does not discuss socialism, it is still propaganda in its relation to masses and therefore, while being an important part of the work of a Communist Party, it is not the central aspect of participating among mass organizations and masses on the issues on which they are currently ready to move and recognizing that consciousness will go through stages corresponding to the strategic stages of the struggle the Party has outlined. The Party of course wants to increase its own visibility and agitation and propaganda but even more important is to increase its involvement with masses in struggle through the forms of struggle and organization and on the issues with the demands they currently support. In such participation, the central role of the Party is to build unity at that level, help defeat all efforts to break up that unity such as with racism, help activate the broadest masses, and help prepare the ground for the next level of mass action.

Lenin not only placed the question of temporary, partial allies but also of long lasting basic allies for the working class. In Two Tactics he saw the poor and middle peasants as allies of the working class in the first, democratic, stage of the Russian revolution and the poor peasants as the ally of the working class in the proletarian stage of the revolution for socialism.

In 1922 at the Second Congress of the Peoples of the East, Lenin amended the final words of The Communist Manifesto to read, “Workers and Nationally Oppressed of the World Unite!” He always rejected as a distortion of Marx the idea of “the working class” alone against the “capitalist class.”

 

Thus a transitional process from the full domination of the ultra right to full domination of anti-monopoly forces was and is the only way it can take place. We also know the electoral victory of the Obama Administration replacing the domination of the ultra right could only be achieved by a coalition of class and social forces and of political trends that was internally contradictory and was bound to have differences of positions on virtually every issue of importance. The winning coalition consisted of labor, the African American, Mexican American and other Latino peoples, Asians, Native Americans and other oppressed peoples, women, youth, LGBT community and others, including the more reasonable, flexible section of monopoly. In relation to political trends it had a substantial block of progressives who were generally anti-monopoly as a whole and an even larger block of moderates who were not anti-monopoly but only anti the ultra right. These were not only the more moderate monopoly capitalists themselves but much of the mass following that supported Hillary Clinton.

This coalition in which our first African American President plays the leading role was necessary to beat the ultra right in 2008 and remains necessary in order to defeat the sharp counterattack of the ultra right we are experiencing and to complete a decisive victory over it, reflected in a sufficient majority in the Senate as well as the House to pass legislation that moves forward and to remove the ultra right from its last bastions of control such as the Supreme Court. This coalition while holding together as a whole needs labor, the nationally oppressed and the other core forces to play an increasingly big role and for the progressive trend to gain strength, without pushing the moderates over to siding with the ultra right. And it should be kept in mind that there will be some shifting of forces according to the issue and the particular interests affected, so that at moments when the interests of moderate monopoly sectors are being confronted they will tend to shift to the right.

The difficulty is how to keep such a range of forces together, while increasingly meeting the needs of the core forces on issues like jobs and housing and not unnecessarily push moderate “independents” into the arms of the ultra right. How to bring the progressive trend forward increasingly with more of general anti-monopoly demands and issues without pushing moderate sections into the arms of the ultra right. One answer to this is for progressives to support proposals for more aid and concessions for small business and other middle strata in return for their support of the main demands of labor and the nationally oppressed.

How can the coalition be consolidated and steadily advance as a result of an internal process of differences on issues and tactics within a framework of consolidating unity?

The first thing is the necessity of recognizing who is the enemy and the strength and danger of that enemy.

That enemy is clearly the ultra right dominated by that sector of monopoly and finance capital, which has great resources and still has powerful positions in government, the media and many aspects of US society. It has the Republican Party and most of its internal divisions, including the so-called populist extreme right of tea baggers and other assorted racists and fanatical groups.

Its concentration is on the person of President Obama but it uses a range of demagogic positions against “big government”, “deficit spending” and for untrammeled competition, etc. These have strong overtones of racism, also. These are the real alternatives to the Obama Administration and the present Congressional majority for the 2010 and 2012 elections. Therefore, no one has a free ride to attack President Obama and his Administration from the left without taking this into account.

Progressives include a left sector with a socialist and Communist component. We do not and should not judge things only by what is needed to completely fix a given social problem. In fact in many cases not even socialism will completely solve every problem immediately. So failing to propose or fight for “what is necessary” can not be the only criteria of judgment. The actual relationship of forces must also be assessed to judge whether the actions stand the test of the times. And some room must be given for knowledge of the concrete situation in Congress that the progressive forces may not have, in terms of why specific members of the House and Senate take the positions they do and to what extent they will respond to mass pressure and to arm twisting by denial of Congressional largess, etc.

The decisive question is the buildup of mass activism, mass movements, mass action to higher and higher levels and in doing that to counter discouragement and loss of confidence. Differences within the coalition can and should and will be expressed, and there will be various pushes and pulls but all must be aware of not helping the enemy and for the need to keep the coalition together including with the Obama Administration, or all the inner differences come to nothing. This sets a framework of how differences are expressed. The right wing and the media will take every difference and try to enlarge it and pose it as a break from the coalition and especially from the President. In any kind of a coalition, whether neighborhood, city-wide or national, differences are inevitable and the same basic rules apply as to how to handle them if one values the existence of the coalition and sees others as the main enemy. The basis of the coalition can not be the maximum position of the most left forces It will vary from issue to issue but can not be too far ahead of the moderates or too far behind the moderates, to be able to hold together, and advance.

It is only with such an approach that we can defeat the counterattack of the ultra right, complete the defeat of the ultra right (they will never be completely defeated during capitalism) and complete the transition fully into the general anti-monopoly stage of struggle.

Because of its Marxist outlook and character as a Communist Party, we have been able to establish these strategic stages, strategy for this transition period, and tactics to accomplish it, in a way that is exemplary for all the other democratic forces. The bigger and stronger the Party is the more it will be able to contribute to assuring this direction of development, which is the only possible road to socialism.

Does any of this sound familiar America?

PROPAGANDA

AGITATION

Communists/Marxists utilizing “oppressed peoples” to push their agenda to convert America to Socialism.  WHAT happens to these masses if Socialism succeeds?

Peasants? Slaves?  Marching to the orders of the oligarchy?

 

An example of marching to the orders of the oligarchy  for all Americans to see is the “March For America”…..”Change takes Courage” (Obama’s new mantra) march in Washington, D.C. tomorrow (March 21, 2010).

The Marxists are agitating the illegal immigrants within the United States; telling them the propaganda of them gaining “rights and demanding citizenship”…….yet IF any illegals are arrested tomorrow (March 21st), will they come to their aid?

Do the Union members of SEIU, AFL-CIO, AFSCME, etc. realize that the upper echelon of the Union (Andy Stern, Richard Trumka, etc.) are possibly spending your Union Treasury (where your dues go) on pushing a Marxist/Socialist agenda?
