Cheers~ Long live the revolutionary struggle against all tyrants and oppressors. Today is the day we celebrate the take over of Russia by the revolutionary vanguard and the death of the Tzar. Today we celebrate one of the most monumental events in all of history.

Reports are coming in from Labour list and momentum that there are preparations for a showdown at the 2021 labour conference. With Labour branches putting forward a motion to re-instate Jeremy Corbyn and transferring the ability of removal of MP's to labour members. This is the biggest internal matter Kieth Starmer has faced yet, loosing this vote at confrence threatens to majorly undermine his leadership and demostrate a left majority against his leadership within the party.

Science summit warns of escalating pandemic disaster
>The two-day summit consisted of 22 different sessions on the pandemic, including on airborne transmission, inequities in global vaccine distribution, the effects of Long COVID and the development of new variants of SARS-CoV-2.
https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/11/06/pers-n06.html

Great work by comrade Evan Blake, for a very clear report on the “Global Summit to End Pandemics”. The scientists involved have selflessly and conscientiously given of their time and knowledge to put forth the ways to end the current pandemic. But this is not enough. The financial elites are actually using the pandemic to increase their wealth, and to cull unwanted sections of the population. There can be no appeals made to them, human or scientific. This is a watershed moment in history. Evan is absolutely correct to state that the only section of society that truly has an interest and the ability to end the pandemic, is the world working class, educated in the science and organised under a scientific socialist program and leadership. That leadership is the International Committee of the Fourth International and its publication, the World Socialist Web site.

We'll see fewer scams when more people are taken care of and more people are educated.

Do we have more scams or less under capitalism? Hard to say. I think scams in capitalism (like Netflix fees, rent increases, sales tax, inflation, etc, not even the obvious ones like fake medicine, fortune telling, bogus gofundmes) are mostly subtle. But at a deeper level, most people who fall for a con are people who want to be conned. I don't think that's a product of an economic situation so much as a social one. There were still scams in USSR and Mao's China, I'm absolutely sure, but that was more due to the socio-economic conditions of the time than "socialism"

Yes i think so, production for use instead of production for sale, should make the systemic push for scams go away. And when people are no longer made desperate by economic precariousness they will be less vulnerable to mind tricks

The significance of the Democratic Party debacle on November 2

Nicely encapsulated. I am sending this to all of my friends who continue to support the Democratic party. They must be made to see that their image of the Democrats as a pro-workers' party is undeserved and that whatever gains the working class once achieved prior to the 1960s are virtually all gone.

COVID-19 must not be the “new normal”
>The perspective set forth by McKinsey & Company, speaking on behalf of the corporate-financial oligarchy, is that the coronavirus pandemic should be allowed to become “endemic.”
https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/11/03/pers-n03.html

This article is a blatant refutation against the ruling classes who are still calling for people to live and adapt with Covid-19 virus all under the banner that the cure must not be worse then the disease itself. Their commitment to safeguard at any cost corporate profits and wealth accumulation is the reason as to why we are seeing renewed outbreaks in US, Europe and Russia. These same Capitalist governments who have done a miserable job in containing the virus are now attending Glasgow CO26 for Climate Change. What a farce.

Anon you are wrong, capital needs a minimum of a certain level of exploitation of workers, otherwise a crisis happens, this what they meant by a "worker shortage" essentially workers are not exploited enough. This fall in exploitation will drive big capitals to accumulate in order to offset loses, increasing the problem, from there comes a big crisis, either that or the us government pumps money into the banking system, to essentially, not avoid the crisis but bring it to a swift and faster end, with the same results, a bunch people going into poverty

But if that's true why are employers being so recalcitrant. Wouldn't it be better for the booj to exploit at a lower level than they'd like than not exploit labor at all? Seems like a capital strike to me.

They are viewing it from the point of view of capital, and from that pov the future crisis that a lower exploitation rate causes is generates not from an overproduction of capital, but from an underexploitation of workers, thus it seems the workers are the ones "causing" the crisis

big Capital can even afford to work at a loss for a while, especially big finance, which isn't really involved in production
>this what they meant by a "worker shortage" essentially workers are not exploited enough.
No there is no worker shortage, just because capital has not realized that the cost of labor has increased. There has been an inflation of the cost of living for a while and that obviously increases wages as well. (productive capital could attack rent-capital like black rock which is the cause for increasing housing cost in many places around the world, to lower the cost of living for workers)
>This fall in exploitation will drive big capitals to accumulate in order to offset loses, increasing the problem
I don't see a problem, if they scale up production and operate at lower margins, that means stuff gets cheaper.
> government pumps money into the banking system a bunch people going into poverty
if people go into poverty, they loose their ability to perform work and that means the remaining labor-power increases in price.

>>453047
>But if that's true why are employers being so recalcitrant.
Mostly habit, they aren't used to paying more for labor.
>Seems like a capital strike to me.
Capital is loosing the ability to perform capital strikes, they are harming people and that means that fewer people can work and it gets more expensive to hire workers, therefore it's not a strike.

"A while" being the key term there, eventually there will be a crisis

>No there is no worker shortage, just because capital has not realized that the cost of labor has increased. There has been an inflation of the cost of living for a while and that obviously increases wages as well. (productive capital could attack rent-capital like black rock which is the cause for increasing housing cost in many places around the world, to lower the cost of living for workers)

Inflation is not really an "increase in the cost of labour", it is only a nominal one. There is currently though a real increase, with the wages rising ever since trump, where the us had one the lowest unemployment rates ever, and a lot business having to raise wages now.

>I don't see a problem, if they scale up production and operate at lower margins, that means stuff gets cheaper.

the problem is that production cannot be scaled up infinitely, eventually there will be overproduction, the rise in wages is not the problem, the real problem is that capital is overproduced, cannot realize its full value, which leads first to an increase in wages, and then to a crisis, after capital can no longer be employed profitably

>if people go into poverty, they loose their ability to perform work and that means the remaining labor-power increases in price.

A lot of people die, but also a lot capital devalues, which offsets the loss of life

>we should stick to an objective point of view.

If you want to explain why capitalists think something, looking at the POV of capital is useful anon

What are your opinions on Inejiro Asanuma?

Inejirō Asanuma was one of the few prominent politicians in the 1950's who was advocating for total autonomy from America and the removal of all US military bases, as well as the formation of a pan-Asian bloc to defend against foreign imperialist meddling. Otoya was (unwittingly or otherwise) doing the bidding of the US state department by icing this politician who was threatening American hegemony.

Global COVID-19 death toll surpasses 5 million: Government policies promote mass death
>Amid the ongoing wave of mass death, governments worldwide are scrapping all remaining measures to contain or slow the spread of COVID-19, with the grotesque mantra that society must “learn to live with the virus.”
https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/11/01/pers-n01.html

Living and dying with the virus joins a long list of similar socially destructive policies pursued by our elites.

Like living with poverty, inequality, millionaires and billionaires, global warming, deteriorating working conditions, homelessness, world hunger, war … an incomplete list but already one that is too long to live with.

Everyone of these class hostile acts is measurable in the millions and billions of human beings that suffer and die as a result. We need to do something about it. Not as individuals but as a class, as the working class. It is our only cure and it deals with all our ills.

The solution is mass forced quarantine and vaccination, it's the only way the disease will get under control. Leaving people to do as they please clearly isn't working.
