"Wankers, skivers and fraudsters
will be subjected to benefit cuts"
Since when have the capitalist
parasite class been subject to this?
They have been the beneficiaries of
government largesse since time
immemorial (ALL government is in
their interests)as well as
exploiting wage workers for profit.
If you are on PAYE it is your
employer who pays the tax.Tax is a
cost on the employer class generally
(apart from VAT and local council
What you get is the bottom line in
your payslip. If you had the nominal
tax cost reduced your wage would be
reduced also as the employer
recouped this cost.
"The truth is that the deficit was
not the problem: it was the
solution. What the much-maligned
government of Gordon Brown did was
to recognise this, and act
As far as solutions go,governments
can do very little. Brown's
intervention may have delayed the
whole thing going tits up. But..
I hold no brief for the banks, but
they did not cause the present
slump. This was caused by
capitalism’s tendency to overproduce
for particular markets in a boom,
not by monetary policy or
institutional arrangements, even if
they were an exacerbating factor.
There is no solution inside
capitalism for these periodic
crises,neither more or less
austerity or more or less spending
on infrastructure by governments,
nor ever will we see, despite
Brown's premature announcement to
the contrary , "an end to boom and
It is the rate of profit that is

production, and nothing is produced

"The development of the productive
forces of social labour is capital’s
historic mission and justification.
For that very reason, it unwittingly
creates the material conditions for
a higher form of production.”
(Capital Volume III, p 368).
Profit before people’s needs is the
lifeblood of capitalism; capitalism
has done its job; now is the time
for ‘ a higher form of production’,
i.e. a global
production for use, commonly
No they (global capitalism) just
exported the jobs and reduced skills
levels,then reduced the

the 'disguise' of equal pay for
equal work, so they needed topped up

system and a commonly-owned,free

world will ensure equal access to

It is absurd to pretend that
governments can manage economies in
the first place. in fact their job
is to manage 'us' in the interests
of the parasite economic class of
exploiters, who pay big bucks to
support their elections to this end
regardless of which party label they
are flying under.
All of the political
represent sections of the capitalist
class, hence their insistence upon
reassuring the electorate of their
'business friendly ' nature.
This ensures that whatever political
hue the elected reps are, the
electorate,like turkeys voting for
xmas, remain in conditions of waged
slavery,subject to the dictates of
the capitalist market.
Abolish the wages system and
establish an real democracy where
everything is owned in common and
controlled democratically without
the need of rationing of access via

anything to do with socialism, or
anything to do with the interests of

"The Labour Party's never been a
socialist party, but it's always
had socialists in it, just as
there are some Christians in the
Church, it's an exact parallel."
Real socialism is a post-capitalist
society not some business friendly
stitch-up of the workers.
He has learned nothing as have his
supporters.If you are convinced,
however, that groups or parties
promising reforms deserve your
support, we would urge you to
consider the following points.
The campaign, whether directed
at right-wing or left-wing
governments, will often only succeed
if it can be reconciled with the
profit-making needs of the system.
In other words, the reform will
often be turned to the benefit of
the capitalist class at the expense
of any working class gain.
Any reform can be reversed and
eroded later if a government finds
Reforms rarely, if ever, actually
solve the problem they were intended
This was summed up by William
Morris over a century ago: "The
palliatives over which many worthy
people are busying themselves now

unorganised partial revolts

grasping organisation which will,

people with an attack on a fresh
The profit motive of
capitalism is a major cause of the
problems we face in today's society:
ever increasing inequality, poverty,
alienation, crime, homelessness,
environmental degradation—the list
could go on and on. There are
countless ways in which the working
class (and indeed the capitalist
class) suffer as a result of the
profit system. Unless we organise
for a revolutionary alternative, the
profit system will continue on its
blind, unswerving path.
The problem is that you are willing
to give your power away to
representative governments when in
reality they only can represent the
interests of the capitalist class
and govern 'over' you.
The world has the productive
capacity to provide a high standard
of living for all, to provide
security and comfort for all, to
create safe workplaces and clean
The only thing keeping us from
reaching these goals is that the
workers don't own and control that
productive capacity; it is owned and
controlled by a few who use it
solely to profit themselves.
Instead of the conservative motto:
“A fair day's wage for a fair day's
work!” they [the working class]
ought to inscribe on their banner
the revolutionary watchword:
“Abolition of the wages system!" -
Marx, Value, Price and Profit,
For the truth is that, however
ardently old Labour spoke of
Socialism and New Labour the
abolition of poverty, they and their
party have contracted for neither.
The Labour Party,since its
foundation were as dangerous to the
Capitalist system as a pantomime
lion to its audience.
"While theologians are disputing the
existence of a hell elsewhere, we
are on the way to realising it here:
and if capitalism is to endure,
whatever may become of men when they
die, they will come into hell when
they are born." – William Morris http://socialist-courier.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/this-is-real-socialism.html

rhetoric of Freedom and

Rather than contemplate a
change of government 'over' you
,consideration needs to be given to
a change of the economic and
political system in order to
establish a post-capitalist ,common
ownership with a delegated democracy
,which requires administration being
the preserve of the majority in
conditions of free access to the
collective produce of this majority
and the elimination of privileged
ownership and control mechanisms.
We have a world to win.
