FAITH BASED INCINERATOR INITIATIVE

Albert Kada | It is my grave concern that American workers, especially Christian workers, and others who snub wisdom in spite of, or in lieu of faith, be paid on time, and on their regularly scheduled payday. Therefore I demand that Bush pay me what he owes me on time or God will surely torture him in hell for a minimum of 500 years. The current balance due would be about 100 million dollars.

Economic Values and Impending Collapse

finch | Foreboding has hit the ranks of private equity firms; try as they might to unload vast amounts of funds (monetary value is inextricably linked to the movement of those funds) they have been unable to spend/invest at a rate that would sustain value let alone increase real profits! The ‘healthy figures’ reflecting increased acquisitions/investments are on paper only – it ‘looks good’ at the moment! more...  0 Comments

Venezuela: ¿invasión o falso antiimperialismo?

PCInt. | Tomando como pretexto esta vez la participación de Estados Unidos en el golpe de Estado fallido de 2002, que no tiene otro propósito que el de suscitar la unión nacional entre todas las clases sociales para defender a la «patria», es decir, el Estado y la economía burgueses, la Administración Chávez ha lanzado una campaña sobre el riesgo imaginario de una invasión militar dirigida por el Gran Hermano del Norte; como toda campaña patriótica, nacionalista, chovinista que se precie, esta ha tenido por destinatario al proletariado; aquí se trata, en pocas palabras, de impedir que éste comprenda que sus intereses son diferentes y opuestos a los de las clases burguesas y pequeño-burguesas. La experiencia histórica es formal y categórica: el proletariado no podrá defender sus intereses si no se organiza y lucha sobre bases independientes de clase. Y, la única forma de solidaridad que podrá recibir, será la de sus hermanos en lucha de todos los otros países contra sus propias burguesías. El antiimperialismo proletario no tomará su verdadero vigor sino del combate de clase, cuando éste se reanude dentro de las fortalezas imperialistas, en este caso, la reanudación de la lucha de clase del proletariado norteamericano; lejos y difícil, pero lo más real. more...  1 Comments

Ludicrous Assumptions

gan | Ludicrous assumptions are many but perhaps the most absurd is the assumption that those who steal the greater percentage of available wealth and continue to implement economic strategies designed to enslave are (somehow) safe and secure. From the Pacific islands to the pitch battles in Mainland China, exploited people of the world are retaliating against injustice. more...  0 Comments
