Shara Spells out “Road Map” to Reform; Compares it to Corrective Movement Led by Hafiz al-Assad


Ibrahim Hamidi, bureau chief of al-Hayat in Damascus, and three other journalists met with vice president Farouq Shara. Here is what he said about article 8 of the constitution, which states that the Baath Party is the leader of Syria’s state and society. It explains President Assad’s “road map” of reforms that should be finalized by the end of year. [The following is a very loose translation of the al-Hayat article. I used Google translation, changed a lot, and erase repetition and filler in the interest of saving time. This is not a word for word translation.]

Shara confirms President’s «road map» to reform
Saturday, July 23, 2011
Damascus – Ibrahim Hamidi – al-Hayat
Vice President Farouk al-Sharaa  explained that Syria must turn the crisis into an opportunity by consolidating «reform» and to become «more democratic».

Sharaa indicated that the «road map» announced by President Bashar al-Assad will lead to a basket of reforms being adopted by the end of the year. This will include a national conference and adopt of the new political party law, election law, media law and new People’s Assembly (parliament) early next month and the formation of a Higher Council for Human Rights. He said: »Let their be political action instead of people trading rumors».

The Syrian Vice President speaks in an interview with four journalists, including Director of the Office of «life» in Damascus after the consultative meeting that took place at the invitation of «the national dialogue» set up by President Assad a few weeks ago. And the holding of «consultation» for three days with the participation of 180 personal parties «Progressive National Front» The Party «Baath», including the heads of trade unions of workers and peasants, students and lawyers, in addition to the independent and opposition figures and youth.

Was issued at the conclusion of the meeting, which was attended by a number of opponents, a closing statement, the 18 items, including that the dialogue is «the only way to end the crisis» and the «stability should be a higher national and a guarantee for deepening reforms,» and to consider the «liberation of the Golan from the national targets which represents a consensus». As requested «dialogue committee» of the relevant committees to prepare draft laws in preparation for release «as soon as possible», and to recommend the establishment of the Commission’s «Constitutional Review PROCEDURE all, and to make proposals to ensure the formulation of modern constitution».

Recent days have seen the issuance of public statements from unions, peasants and students about the consequences of «consultation». The General Union of Peasants stated  that “the gains of the masses of the toilers were the result of a long struggle.”  The National Union of Syrian Students made a statement that “any review or amendment to the national Constitution or any change or innovation” must be achieved in a democratic fashion that reflects the will of the people according to the rules and constitutional principles.”

The Syrian Vice-President stressed that it is necessary to “defend the gains” that have been made in Syria over the past decades, including in education and health. He explained that what Syria is going through «is not a revolution, but the process of repair and restoration». “There are gains to preserve and errors to fix. The late President Hafez al-Assad had his “corrective movement” (in 1970). Why? At the time, it was not possible to progress without corrective reform.” He added: “We expanded the base of power.” Those who argue that we relinquish past gains are wrong.” …

He said that based on President al-Assad’s speech at the University of Damascus all articles of the Constitution would be subject to review, including the eighth, which states that «the Baath» is the leader in the community and the state…..He added that the Regional Conference for the Tenth Party «Baath» which was held in 2005, included many of the recommendations for reform. He stressed that everyone should support the reform project led by President al-Assad. He noted that many Baathist leaders support the reforms, pluralism and democracy……

The next phase includes a series of steps. It conducted a «dialogue committee» after the end of the «consultation» a number of meetings with Syrian dissidents accept «the dialogue under the roof of the nation», to complete a dialogue with the formation of a preparatory committee for the conference. He also participated in discussions to enter about 70 thousand people, a website devoted to dialogue.

….He explained that the dissidents interviewed by «the dialogue» are not involved in the foreign plots. They want reform, but not the destruction of the country.  He expressed his conviction that dialogue leads to the «calming of the street».

Al-Shara said that Syria is «immune to sectarianism».  The experiences of the last century and the beginning of the Syrians rejected the attempts of the French mandate to divide the the country. He warned of Israel’s efforts to «play the sectarian card» in the Middle East. He added: «a program of reform to the citizen, make him feel safe. We must fortify the citizen and the nation the national dialogue and reforms ». He compared Syria to the color spectrum, saying that it is difficult to separate any color from the rest of the spectrum. …

Sharaa explained that the US position on its surface seems to be about human rights and democracy, but at its core it is about US national «interests» which are closely connected to those of Israel.

Shara, in response to a question by al-Hayat, stated that there would be a Constitutional Review in the coming months after the formation of a political committee, legally established for this purpose, in parallel with the adoption of draft laws in the coming days. With the return of the People’s Assembly (Parliament) on the 6th of next month, new representative bodies will be elected.

51. William H. Depperman said:

Part 2 of 3:
Although it made a pro forma protest against the U.S.-instigated “independence” of Kosovo, the present opportunized comprador Serbian government is now a virtual U.S. puppet/proxy state which was installed after the final U.S. division of Yugoslavia.

Kosovo Today is Nothing but a U.S. Military Base and Crime Center:
The Final Division of the Yugoslavian Workers State

The capitalists’ divide and conquer efforts also included on May 22, 2006 the division of Montenegro from Serbia thereby waging economic war against the Serbian people and permanently cutting it off from the sea! The U.S. had already installed a puppet government in place in Serbia to facilitate this divide and conquer of Yugoslavia and also granted “independence” to Kosovo, which is an integral part of Serbia. The U.S. puppet government in Serbia only went through the motions of “protest” when the United States and NATO countries granted Kosovo “independence.” Kosovo has another name: Camp Bondsteel, the largest U.S. military base built in Europe in a generation. Kosovo is a U.S./NATO puppet and is run by an appointed High Representative and bodies appointed by the U.S., European Union and NATO. An old-style colonial viceroy and imperialist administrators have control over all aspects of foreign and domestic policy. The U.S. has merely consolidated its direct control of a totally dependent colony in the heart of the Balkans. The “independence” of Kosovo is in direct violation of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1244, which the leaders of Yugoslavia were forced to sign to end the 78 days of NATO bombing of their country in 1999. Even this imposed agreement affirmed the “commitment of all Member States to the sovereignty and territorial integrity” of Serbia, a republic of Yugoslavia. U.S. imperialist domination does not benefit the occupied people. Kosovo after nine years of direct NATO military occupation had a staggering 60 percent unemployment rate. It has become a center of the international drug trade and of prostitution rings in Europe. The once humming mines, mills, smelters, refining centers and railroads of this small resource-rich industrial area all sit silent. The resources of Kosovo under NATO occupation were forcibly privatized and sold to giant Western multinational corporations. Cheney’s Halliburton, of course, got the contract to build Camp Bondsteel in the first place. Now almost the only employment in Kosovo is working for the U.S./NATO army of occupation or U.N. agencies. The U.S. base guards the strategic oil and transportation lines of the entire region. Over 250,000 Serbian, Romani and other nationalities have been driven out of this Serbian province since it came under U.S./NATO control. Almost a quarter of even the Albanian population (!) has been forced to leave in order to find work. On Russia Today TV, the lawyer for Radovan Karadzic, Svetozar Vujacic, stated that Karadzic believed that it was just a matter of time before he (Karadzic) was poisoned, as was Milosevic, or otherwise murdered on orders of the U.S. and NATO. Vujacic also confirmed that the “Civil War in Herzegovina was provoked by Germany, England, the Vatican and the United States.”

The 1983 Korean Airliner Provocation

The U.S. has a well-known and long history of engaging in provocations designed to blow up airliners (see above), including the Korean Airliner Provocation on September 1, 1983. The Soviet pilot, who finally shot the Korean airliner down after it had deviated greatly from its assigned flight path and continued to make evasive maneuvers up and down even after the fuselage had been depressurized by cannon fire, reported: “A LARGE SECONDARY EXPLOSION.” (!) That “large secondary explosion” was apparently an altitude bomb to make sure that the plane exploded when the Korean pilot finally tried to land the plane deep inside the USSR, following the instructions given to him by RICHARD NIXON who was flown in specially to the Anchorage Alaska stopover to speak to the Korean pilot. Personally! Nixon apparently assured the Korean pilot that the Soviets would DEFINITELY NOT (!) shoot the plane down, assuring the Korean pilot that HE, Richard Nixon, knew the Soviets better than any other living person (!) and that this “test of Soviet air defense capabilities” was essential, even while instructing the pilot to do everything conceivable to provoke an actual shootdown, including instructing the pilot to keep the window shades ALL drawn and closed to conceal the actual passengers from the Soviet jet interceptor! The MOTIVE for the Korean Airliner Provocation was primarily to DISCREDIT the German Communist Party-led opposition to the placement of Pershing II First Strike Nuclear Missiles in Germany 10 minutes from Moscow, which changed the political equation to LAUNCH ON WARNING, a step up from MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction). After this provocation those First Strike nuclear missiles were placed in Germany in late November 1983 and in 1988 Gorbachev, after internal maneuvering in the Soviet Union after taking state power in April 1985, surrendered to the United States to prevent a nuclear war, the inexorable outcome of a nuclear arms race, which was instigated by the United States, as part of the strategic FULL COURT PRESS against the USSR in the 1980s after the U.S. had given up on peaceful coexistence.

The Soviet Surrender also demonstrated Soviet recognition of the One-Way Dynamic of Capitalism. See below. There was NO collapse of the USSR whatsoever, economically or in any other way! There was the 1991 START nuclear weapons agreement and what amounted to a surrender agreement which both sides agreed to. There were also several quid pro quos, which included ending the official rule by the Communist Party in the USSR in 1991 through a STING/”coup d’etat” carried out by Mikhail Gorbachev (see elsewhere by this writer). In exchange the U.S. engineered the freeing of Nelson Mandela of the ANC in South Africa where the U.S. abandoned support for that regime. Gorbachev also gave the green light to the brazen assassination of the charismatic and hugely popular Cris Hani, the General Secretary of the South African Communist Party in April 1993 so that the South African Communist Party would not follow Nelson Mandela and the capitalist ANC! Gorbachev himself also had assassinated a veritable laundry list of Soviet diplomats and “bad memories” for the U.S. capitalist dictatorship including Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko in July 1989, Kim Philby in May 1988, a Soviet Agent who had led the Russian division of British Intelligence (!) for 19 years (!) and “Gorby” agreed to the assassination of NAZI Rudolph Hess in Spandau Prison by the U.S in August 1987, to name just a few key personnel. These events were followed by a long and painful dismantlement of the Soviet Worker’s State during the 1990’s. The CIA, which at that time did not want to be known as a false propaganda source because it would decrease morale, came on network TV news in 1991 and stated that they “had no evidence that the USSR was headed for an economic collapse.” The reason that they “had no evidence” was because there was no economic collapse of the USSR. That is the Big Lie False Propaganda anti-Communist Media Campaign designed to demoralize the masses who did not understand what actually happened in the USSR with Mikhail Gorbachevl!

The 911 Attack was a U.S. Government-Assisted Provocation:

The 1988 Soviet surrender set the stage for the 1991 Persian Gulf slaughter, the 911 Trade Center Attack/Provocation orchestrated by the United States and the U.S invasions of Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen and the present Regime Change Gambit and Invasion of Libya. In the 2001 Trade Center Provocation the Bush Regime kept the U.S. military jet interceptors on the ground for over an hour in order to permit the Islamic Fundamentalists to fly their hijacked jets into the Trade Center and Pentagon in order to create a provocation and pretext to invade Central Asia and later, after a bait and switch using the fraudulent “weapons of mass destruction” propaganda as the pretext, to invade the main target—Iraq. Both the Clinton and the Bush Regimes allowed the 19 Islamic Fundamentalists to enter the United States, followed all of their movements by constant telephone, computer and email surveillance and made sure that those who were going to fly the planes received the higher education they needed at special flight schools to fly jumbo jets into the World Trade Center. When lower level FBI agents reported their suspicions to FBI headquarters in Washington they were told to shut up and they were reassigned. This all appeared within the first 3 weeks in the New York Times after the Trade Center Attack. See for the timeline documenting how the interceptors were kept grounded (we do not support the political position of this site which supports “Israel”) and see: (pages 51and pdf 63). The latter is the website of the Wolfowitz document entitled: “Rebuilding Americas Defenses,” a totally hair-brained scheme by third-rate intellects, which nevertheless is the present continuing game plan of the U.S. government, which is being carried out with virtually no deviation despite the fact that everything in it has been a fiasco from its inception. That game plan, which calls outright for projection of U.S. military power into Central Asia and the Mideast, the overthrow of the Peoples’ Republic of China, etc., was published in September 2000, one year before the 9/11 Attack, states on page 51: “Further, the process of transformation (the Fascist game plans of the Bush Regime), even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event—like a New Pearl Harbor.”

Incidentally, there were no “bombs in the Trade Center!” Single issue anti-Communist groups supposedly attacking “the official explanation” of the Trade Center attack such as 9/, etc. deliberately make the false and completely unsubstantiated claim that the Trade Center buildings came down because of planted “bombs” in all 7 Trade Center buildings and that the attacks by the Islamic Fundamentalists in those huge planes filled to the brim with 90,000 liters of jet fuel and the totally flimsy design of the Trade Center Buildings and subsequent huge fires in all 7 had nothing to do with it! What a joke! The bombs claim is known as straw man disinformation meant to 1.) Cover up the fact that the 911 Attack was a U.S. Government-Assisted Provocation, 2.) To discredit the true claim that the Bush (and Clinton) regimes orchestrated the 911 Attack and 3.) Cover-up the UNDERLYING MECHANISM of the capitalists’ so-called “War on Terror”—A CONTINUOUS CYCLE OF PROVOCATION FOLLOWED BY RETALIATION—where the Islamic Religion is systematically and deliberately attacked, provoked and manipulated on a continuing basis in order to illicit retaliation from Islamic Fundamentalists, which is then used in turn as the fraudulent pretext for the Final Stage of Capitalism—Permanent War and State Terrorism!

The Libyan So-called “Protesters/Rebels” Function
As U.S./NATO Proxies to Steal Libyan Oil!

The Russian Federation, the People’s Republic of China, Germany, India and Brazil ALL VOTED FOR THE U.S./NATO INVASION OF LIBYA by abstaining in the U.N. Security Council vote for the so-called “No-Fly Zone.” Russia and China indubitably received huge concessions from the United States in what was a clear and obvious QUID PRO QUO, the precise nature of which will be revealed by future events! The U.S. Invasion of Libya started with the usual Bush-style SHOCK AND AWE AIR CAMPAIGN of 110 cruise missiles the first day (!), over 200 cruise missiles overall, and used “CIA and NATO special forces” to “lead and train” their proxy “Rebel Army” in an initial attempted ground invasion and coup d’etat attempt. The “protesters/rebel army” numbers no more than 10,000 (!) (New York Times, April 7, 2011) and was organized and supported, manipulated and instigated by the U.S. and are in fact U.S. proxies, but Qaddafi’s forces made them turn tail and run. Those fighting against Qaddafi will not get anything in return for laying down their lives for nothing but BUSH STYLE—REGIME CHANGE, which is precisely what is going on!! The “Rebels” say they want “elections,” but elections are a sham way of keeping the capitalists in power. There is no change in property relations threatened by the so-called “rebels.” Everything is being carried out to overthrow Qaddafi and steal the Libyan oil! The “rebels” do not see it yet because of their Islamic Fundamentalism, anti-Communism and deliberate misleadership by the United States which orchestrated the entire thing! But it has to be acknowledged that Qaddafi made several large mistakes: 1.) He invited the capitalist oil companies into Libya. 2.) He promised (not “threatened” the term used by the capitalist media) but did not follow through on his pledge to redirect the oil money to the Libyan people.

Hugo Chavez on the other hand actually has redirected the oil wealth to the Working Class and the Poor of Venezuela and he has no problem with popularity. Chavez is hugely popular despite unrelenting U.S.-directed false media propaganda campaigns directed against him and non-stop provocations. 3.) Qaddafi also made the mistake of not watching his back. The Libyan people DO have LEGITIMATE grievances, which will NOT be improved one iota with a U.S. INVASION OF LIBYA and a take-over by the oil companies and private contractors, which is the United States objective. Prior to their present stepped up demand that Qaddafi be overthrown “at all costs” because their Proxy “Rebel” army looks like it will be defeated outright and entirely by Qaddafi’s ground forces despite the U.S. air strikes and the CIA and U.S./NATO special forces leadership provided to the Proxy “Rebel” army, the U.S./NATO objective was first to divide Libya as the capitalists did with Korea and Vietnam and later Yugoslavia (see above), but gave up on that when it was clear that their Proxy “Rebel” army was about to lose all territory gained with U.S/NATO aid. The U.S.-led world capitalist dictatorship first intended to divide Libya with Bengazi being the “capitol” of the imagined, newly reconstituted U.S.-controlled so-called “Kingdom of Libya” with the U.S puppet “Transitional National Council” declaring that it now controls all Libyan oil and the banks!! (!) The Libyan “rebels” should smell a rat but they do not because they are too young to remember the hated and despised King Idris, who was overthrown in 1969 by Qaddafi! The U.S.-led capitalist dictatorship just wants that oil! The de facto division of Iraq into Sunni, Shia and Kurdish factions was another wonderful demonstration of how well the capitalist dictatorship is able to implement this essential Divide and Conquer Rule of capitalist statecraft! Maintaining the racial, ethnic, religious, national, age, sex and sexual preference division in the United States and elsewhere also keeps the U.S. dictatorship on its toes!

The oil companies and the United States bought off all the Libyan ambassadors, some individuals in the Libyan armed forces and on March 31, 2011 even bought off the Foreign Minister, Moussa Koussa and then the very next day Ali Abdessalam Treki, a former foreign minister and U.S. General Assembly President were also bought off. Both took positions against Qaddafi. Buying off diplomats is Standard Operating Procedure for the U.S.! The U.S. also controls the militaries of virtually all of its Mideast allies and also attempts to make inroads into the militaries of its enemies. The U.S. and NATO were given the green light to invade Libya beginning with a “no fly zone,” when it looked like their initial coup d’etat attempt was about to fail miserably!!” A “no-fly zone” is an act of war first requiring that the US/NATO first bomb Libyan air defenses, and infrastructure which they have done destroying them almost entirely! The U.S. capitalist dictatorship also instructed 11 puppet members of the 22-member Arab League, to make a “special request” to the U.S. and NATO and the United Nations to please, please come invade Libya, beginning with a “no-fly zone,” because it was obvious that the U.S. proxy “rebel army” was collapsing. The U.S. Invasion of Libya is one more glaring demonstration that Capitalism is in its Final Stage designated: Permanent War and State Terrorism. The “War on Terror is the pretext used to maintain capitalism in its final stage. Capitalism is fundamentally based on war, mass murder, crime and subjugation to steal new resources and markets in order to increase private profits. It should be very clear to any person who knows the history of Libya and the U.S.-led capitalist dictatorship what is happening! The combination of: 1.) total absence of any genuine Communist Party or organized Working Class in Islamic countries and 2.) U.S. control of the military in most of these countries through training of their officer corps often in the United States and direct supply of war materiel and money to those militaries is how the U.S. is able to ensure that under no circumstances should the deliberately created social unrest which capitalism has created get organized in the correct direction of a Socialist Revolution. Because there is no genuine Communist Party in Islamic countries, social unrest which is created naturally by capitalism through the exploitation and super-exploitation of the Working Class, has been organized through “Facebook” and “Twitter,” etc. to perform the bidding of the U.S.-led world capitalist dictatorship, their very exploiters! Islam is the most REACTIONARY of all religions which are ALL inherently reactionary. That helps keep the lid on for the capitalist dictatorship. But that can not last forever!

The U.S. Government—Meaning the U.S. Capitalist Dictatorship—

The United States is waging economic war, biological war and psychological war against its own population—its own people! Let’s look at the history and the present situation both in the U.S. and in Libya. We can not change the future without knowing the past. The reason for this is that if we do not learn the lessons of the past, our capitalist class enemy will and will and does apply those lessons against the Working Class and its allies. That’s us! Therefore, we have to briefly examine some history. The real story of the New Deal: What actually happened in the 1930’s was that a million-strong Communist-led Working Class in the United States generated the pressure which forced Franklin Delano Roosevelt to come up with the New Deal—16 Social Programs which included the Social Security Act. At that time and most recently on Channel 13 Public Television Roosevelt was given credit for “saving capitalism.” “Saving capitalism,” from WHAT pray tell? From a Socialist Revolution in the United States! That’s what! It was that close! So, the New Deal, which TODAY is only a dream—instead we get The No Deal and The Bad Deal because there is currently a ZERO organized Communist movement in the United States—was actually just a BRIBE in the 1930’s. The Working Class did not have to take that bribe! So WHY did they take that bribe??? At a point in time when they did NOT have to take that bribe!

Why Franklin Delano Roosevelt Wrote the New Deal:
The Importance of Genuine Communist Leadership:

The answer is that the million-strong Communist-led Working Class took that bribe, the New Deal, because of the deliberate misleadership of Josef Stalin, who himself was NOT a Communist although he was a member of the Communist Party and used manipulation to become General Secretary, a position which Lenin opposed! Prior to the 1917 Russian Revolution, the most important and significant event in the Twentieth Century, Stalin voted against taking state power on each and every vote that was taken. He always voted with Kamaniev who always voted against! This included the vote taken the night before the Bolshevik party led the Working Class, (70% of whom supported the Bolsheviks) and 30% of the Peasantry which included the all-important military WHICH WAS IN MUTINY, to take state power. Stalin played a counter-productive role in the Revolutionary War and much later in 1924 after becoming General Secretary, poisoned Lenin while Lenin was recuperating from his second stroke. All the details of what was well known since the 1920’s were all published in the Moscow News, Jan-Feb, 1989. Stalin murdered the remaining leaders of the Bolshevik Party most of them in a series of show trials but others through outright assassination. His position internationally was well known: Socialism in one country–in practice meaning Socialism in no other country. The USSR was only a Workers’ State not a version of Socialism, the first stage of Communism. Communism is a stateless society which has never been practiced and can never be put into practice until capitalism has been overthrown in its center—the United States. In addition to sabotaging the Working Class movement in the U.S. and throughout Europe, Stalin sent 50,000 Chinese Communists to their deaths before Mao got wise and stopped accepting directives from Stalin. Finally in 1943 Stalin ended the Communist International altogether. So much for Stalin being a “Communist.” Stalin rode the back of the 1917 Russian Revolution and drew all his power from it and was compelled to defend it albeit rather poorly starting out as mentioned by murdering Lenin. We have to build back a million-strong Communist movement here in the United States like there was in the 1930’s and carry it through to a Socialist Revolution in the United States. CAPITALISM OFFERS A WORLD WITH NO FUTURE FOR YOU OR YOUR CHILDREN!

The One-Way Dynamic of Capitalism:

Capitalism cannot be turned into Socialism because of its inherent (now) ONE-WAY dynamic which leads to Fascism, barbarism and the end of civilization, a DYNAMIC which is totally independent of the WILLS of the individual capitalists and politicians who nevertheless RIDE that dynamic to the top based on the extent that they express and further the interests of that one-way dynamic. That same dynamic makes George Bush look like a choirboy compared to Obama! The system controls them NOT the other way around. This is hard for most people to understand or accept. People are taught to think in terms of individuals and good guys and bad guys and this forms the basis for elections under capitalism, which is the primary weapon of capitalist deception. But under capitalism it is NOT a question of good guys and bad guys. Under capitalism they are ALL BAD GUYS, AND THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE. (There is an exception to every rule–including this one—where there are NO exceptions!) The proof for this is that there is not ONE capitalist politician anywhere who is saying that capitalism is a failure and has had its day and must be replaced with Socialism through a Socialist Revolution in the United States as the precondition for survival of humankind and all life on Earth and explaining how it must proceed! ALL capitalist politicians without exception try to encourage the false illusion that capitalism can be reformed. That is the basis for the Presidential elections and all elections by extension, which are the Number One Weapon of Capitalist Deception. (ALL capitalist politicians also cover up the fact that the rich pay virtually NO TAXES!)

Every capitalist administration since the beginning of Imperialism, which correlates approximately with the beginning of the Twentieth Century has been to the right of the one which preceded it whether it has been Republican or Democrat, it makes no difference. The only exceptions to this were the administrations of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the two New Dealers which followed him, Harry Truman and Dwight Eisenhower, a Democrat who ran as a Republican, and Lyndon Johnson another New Dealer. These exceptions applied domestically ONLY! Roosevelt orchestrated the Pearl Harbor Provocation in order to get the U.S. Congress to declare war on Japan and reverse the anti-war sentiment in the United States: Seven months after the U.S. cracked the Japanese code and the U.S. heard the Japanese approaching Pearl Harbor, Franklin Delano Roosevelt pulled the 2 aircraft carriers in Pearl Harbor out to sea because they did not want the decks of those carriers to be damaged in the coming attack, which they needed to take place! Reflecting the overwhelming will of the U.S. people the U.S. Congress had just passed the Neutrality Act because the horror of WWI was so fresh in people’s minds and Roosevelt needed a provocation, “a Day Which Would Live In Infamy,” in order to justify asking Congress to declare war on Japan, which it did the very next day after the attack on December 8, 1941 The reason that the capitalists are able to get away with their lies and are able to wage economic war, biological war and psychological (brainwashing) war against their “own” people with virtually NO ORGANIZED OPPOSITION is that only genuine Communists oppose the capitalist dictatorship of millionaires and billionaires and genuinely represent the interests of the Working Class and survival of life on this planet. But today there is no organized Communist movement in the United States! Communists are the only ones who call up front for a new system based on human need not private profit—Socialism. But right now in New York City 95% of those interviewed DO smell a rat and agree, given the choice, which they are NOT, that we need a new system based on human need not private profit. That is a Communist response (!) and does mean Socialism not Fascism. So how do we achieve Socialism?

Capitalism is in its Final Stage of Permanent War, Which is
Potentially the Most Ideal Pre-Revolutionary Situation Possible!

The Capitalists Rule Through a Combination of Force and Deception!
Therefore: 1.) The Capitalists Must be Deprived of the Ability to Send Bodies of Armed Men
Against the Masses and 2.) The Primary Capitalist Weapons of Deception Must be Explained
And Exposed in Order to Take the Steps to Defeat Them and 3.) A Nationwide Network
Of Workers’ and Community Councils Must be Organized as a
Dual Power Counterposed to the Capitalists’ Dictatorship!

THE CAPITALISTS MUST FIRST BE DISARMED! Mutiny in the armed forces is the Absolute Precondition for Socialist Revolution as well as ending the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Syria, Yemen, etc. etc.. Mutiny saves lives! Mutiny Saves Lives! This must be repeated! And repeated! And repeated! The capitalists must first be deprived of the ability to send bodies of armed men against the masses before there can ever be genuine free speech where opposing viewpoints can even be fully heard by the masses, for example on NBC, ABC, CBS and CNN television at prime time every night of the week or even the INTERNET which is NOW HIGHLY CENSORED! Speaking on a street corner even with a megaphone, currently forbidden, is not free speech! Mutiny is also the first step to abolishing the standing army while arming the vanguard of the Working Class. Because of the Mutiny of U.S. armed forces in Vietnam in 1975 the U.S. has taken precautions to try to prevent another mutiny! The capitalists have switched to an army of mercenary mass murderers, which includes regular low-paid GI marauders and cutthroats plus a group of 45,000 armed “private contractors,” paid 4 times the salary of the regular mercenary army. These are the special elite Fascist killers such as Blackwater USA (leader photographed by major media openly giving the Hitler salute!), Dyncorp International, Custer Battles, Aegis, Zapata, Triple Canopy, etc., which are directly analogous to the NAZI SS (Schutz Staffel), for the personal protection of the U.S. high military command and officer corps. These very highly paid heavily armed military contractors are not in Iraq in order “to protect diplomats” despite the fact that the U.S. has built the largest embassy in the entire world in Baghdad! The protection of diplomats has always been carried out by the regular military. And they are not there to hunt for Al-Qaeda! This highly paid organized group of psychopaths are In Iraq for one reason only—to protect the officer corps in event of another mutiny! There were no super-highly paid military contractors in Vietnam! Only after the mutiny in Vietnam was such a security force deemed necessary for Iraq, which is another Vietnam! The overall number of private contractors in Iraq, which includes the 45,000 armed NAZI SS Blackwater USA, etc., numbers about 183,000 according to the Associated Press, September 19, 2007, more than the regular U.S. troops (150,000). In this situation the U.S. strategy of using very highly paid private contractors in order to buy their loyalty ultimately cannot prevent a mutiny, but it does complicate it. The regular army must defeat these NAZI-style SS private contractors militarily while turning their weapons on their officers and taking prisoner all those who do not support the mutiny, along with these NAZI-style SS forces. The regular army is better organized, has heavier weapons with more men under arms so this is not an impossible task. The morale of the mercenary army has never been lower because of the repeated deployments and because after a while the military personnel start asking themselves why they must kill, kill, kill!! So-called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other mental illness also afflict a high percentage of the military.

After the Mutiny in Iraq and in all U.S. forces, which must include all National Guard units followed by the police forces, the masses will be able to begin to set up a government of Dual Power in the United States consisting of a nationwide network of Workers’, Soldiers and Community Councils which are directly counterposed to the capitalist dictatorship’s Congress. The success of the Socialist Revolution in all other developed countries is guaranteed after capitalism is abolished in the United States, but if necessary, we will provide every assistance in any pockets of crazed resistance. The Socialist Revolution in the United States and the actual taking of state power will take place relatively bloodlessly, and can only take place relatively bloodlessly because the masses must support it. Only after Mutiny in the armed forces and after winning the support through patient explanation of at least 70% of the U.S. Working Class and their allies will it be possible to take state power, just as occurred in Russia in October 1917—where only about 220-240 people died in the actual taking of state power starting on October 25th and the days that followed. It was only afterward that millions died in the Revolutionary Civil War after the Imperialists first invaded the Soviet Union 4 months after the October Revolution and all those 14 invading imperialist armies on 19 different fronts mutineed, forcing the capitalists to back the “White Army” organized by the former Czarists and the Provisional Government of Kerensky, the fake-left “Socialist Revolutionary,” against the victorious Red Army. When the Socialist Revolution takes place in the United States there will be no civil war and no more central support for capitalism-imperialism anywhere on Earth. A Socialist Revolution is not a coup d’etat (which the capitalists are trying to carry out in Libya, Syria and Yemen, etc.) and must be supported by the masses won over to the Socialist Revolution through patient explanation, which can only occur if genuine free speech, as described above, exists.

There Are No Downsides WHATSOEVER to Socialism!

The capitalists campaign nonstop to try to instill fear in the masses against Socialism, and most people are genuinely concerned about what Socialism would look like after a Socialist Revolution in the United States and the abolition of capitalism-imperialism worldwide. A Socialist Revolution in the United States would not and could not end up like the Soviet Union because there would be no basis or reason to continue a hard dictatorship after the Socialist Revolution had been consolidated in the former center of capitalism-imperialism—the USA. The Soviet Union and other Workers’ States have all been hard Working Class dictatorships, which was justified only in order to prevent both internal and external counter-revolutionary attempts to restore the capitalist dictatorship, a threat which existed due to the fact that the Workers’ States have existed in a world still threatened by capitalism. That threat would be eliminated permanently after the Socialist Revolution takes place here in the United States, the center of world capitalism-imperialism. (See above for a more comprehensive analysis of the USSR.) The capitalists do not want such questions to even be discussed! The reality is that there are no downsides WHATSOEVER to Socialism! First of all, life on this planet would be able to survive! Almost all of the jobs will still be there too except some of the jobs involved in the military industrial complex and the parasite insurance companies, HMOs and credit card companies. Insurance, HMO’s and credit would be largely unnecessary under Socialism, which would supply all social services automatically!

The capitalist military industrial complex would be terminated immediately after the Worldwide Socialist Revolution, while most of the jobs in that area would be transferred to projects more in line with human need not mass murder. Jobs in no longer necessary parasitic industries such as insurance, health management organizations (HMO’s), credit card companies and private real estate, would also be abolished along with the industries themselves. No more Donald Trumps! No more landlords! As part of the global economic-political-social system based on human need, with the exception of disability, there would be no unemployment permitted (of healthy normal people)—NOT the so-called “natural rate of unemployment” devised by capitalist economists such as Milton Friedman, or any version of it, which permits millions of people to be unemployed to benefit the capitalists as the so-called “reserve army of the unemployed,” as a pretext to keep wages low and as a threat of being unemployed or even homeless by those who are employed. Most large corporations and businesses would not disappear. Far from it! The only difference will be is that all corporations will be owned and run entirely by the workers, but all executive and management positions will be based on periodic direct elections within the corporation or company and all those elected would be subject to immediate recall. Training for top executive and management positions would be required for all! No one will be paid more than the wage of a union worker, just as government officials, and with the end of huge military budgets and the expropriation of the expropriators, the union wage will rise to be more than sufficient to live like a millionaire. That would be the starting point.

Dislocation for any reason during or after the Socialist Revolution will be minimal because the popular support required for its success at its center will allow a smooth and rapid transition! In addition, as mentioned there will be no more exploitation and super-exploitation by landlords, although a much-reduced rent will be paid to the Socialist State. Landlordism will be terminated! Society will finally be placed on a basis of human need. All sections of the economy which derive their profits from parasitizing the masses would be permanently eliminated. There would be no more insurance company parasites and no more need to buy insurance of any kind and no one would ever again be in debt! Today the average college graduate often starts life in debt to the tune of around $100,000.00 and sometimes over twice as much after a graduate degree, an amount which often can never be repaid during the person’s lifetime! That practice would be ended! It should be noted that all European countries have until recently had free education to the highest level—but only because of the 1917 Russian Revolution and the existence of the Soviet Union and it very close proximity until its surrender to the threat of a nuclear war. See Above. (Today the capitalist European countries are trying to reverse and abolish all of the social programs all of which have owed their existence to the Soviet Union.) After a Socialist Revolution in the United States there would be no more “Credit Card Scores” and “Credit Card Reports” by parasite credit card companies because those companies would cease to exist. And there would be no more parasite HMO’s!

Medical and Scientific research would be expanded, fully funded and put to use of human need not mass murder primarily as under capitalism! There would be an end to all economic warfare which capitalism wages against the masses carried out to try to impoverish them economically and to demoralize them politically and to reduce their number by bringing them to an earlier death through applied Social Darwinism. There would an end to homelessness, and all housing would be made livable. There would be entirely free education to the highest level obtainable for each person. There would be free medical and free dental treatment for everyone. There would be an end to the AIDS pandemic, which is documented to be Biological Warfare by the U.S. government and other cooperating governments. A safe recombinant AIDS vaccine, which would be close to 100% effective, would be promptly developed. (See further below in Analysis and Theses for exact description.) Humankind would have its best chance to reverse the Runaway Greenhouse Effect, which the beginning of an exponential increase in atmospheric CO2 levels, documents has already begun. (See above.) The capitalists wage a continuous Big Lie campaign, just like they do on every other issue to brainwash the masses against Socialism. Anti-Communism, which is imposed on the masses through the capitalist government, its puppet media, its puppet educational system, its 100% loyal, fake “left opposition,” its divide and conquer “single issue groups” and its always anti-Communist conspiracy groups, has as much basis in truth as the capitalists’ claim that there were Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq.

“Elections” under capitalism perpetuate the false illusion of “reform” under capitalism, which is the Number One Big Lie of capitalism. The word “democracy” under capitalism is simply a euphemism for capitalist dictatorship and enslavement. That applies here in the United States and everywhere else as well. And if you tune into any news show or cable show only ONE question is actually being discussed no matter what the issue is! All discussion reduces to only one question! What question is that??? The only question being discussed under capitalism is HOW BEST TO PRESERVE CAPITALISM! Nothing whatsoever about human need! So the first step we need to take is to organize back that one million strong Communist Movement we had in the 1930’s by organizing a genuine Communist Party. The Declaration of Independence is actually a transitional document for a Socialist Revolution in the United States. Google up the Declaration of Independence and read it! Although it is not actually necessary, we do have that as a legal basis and justification for calling for a Socialist Revolution in the United States and as a first step, for calling for MUTINY in IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN and all U.S. armed forces as in Vietnam, the real reason and the ONLY REASON that the Vietnam War ended in 1975! Disarming the capitalist dictatorship is thus the Precondition for ALL social change in the United States and worldwide.

The U.S. Government, meaning the U.S. capitalist dictatorship, has lost ALL LEGITIMACY TO RULE and ALL RIGHT TO SOVEREIGNTY in the United States or ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD! This must be repeated from the rooftops! Let’s stop talking about reforming capitalism! This is not your country and it is not my country. WE JUST LIVE HERE! This country belongs to the dictatorship of millionaires and billionaires. It does not belong to you and it does not belong to me! WE own NOTHING! The banks and dictatorship of millionaires and billionaires own everything. If you miss a payment on your mortgage you are in the street. Same thing with your car! Miss a payment on your car and you have no car. So lets stop talking about “why don’t WE do this or WE do that.” Who “we?” Never ever say ”we” or “our” when talking about the U.S. Refer to the US as the capitalist dictatorship of millionaires and billionaires or capitalist dictatorship because that is what it is! We are NOT talking about “changing the government!” That is already done with the periodically staged sham, phony U.S. “elections,” which the capitalists use as take-off points for further and intensified wars in order to more easily steal natural resources and new markets. The U.S.-led capitalist dictatorship is also presently waging war on many levels against its own people! That means you and me! We have to talk about getting rid of the economic-political-social system of capitalism, which can ONLY be accomplished through a Socialist Revolution here in the United States. Lets STOP identifying ourselves with the crimes of the dictatorship of millionaires and billionaires who stage sham “elections, where whoever wins the “election,“ WE ARE THE LOSERS!

We have to STOP thinking in terms of reforming capitalism through protests against particular policies or actions of capitalism-imperialism. Such REFORMIST protests are really aimed at leading seriously motivated people to defeat while allowing them to VENT their energy uselessly and harmlessly to the capitalist dictatorship and then to go home and become progressively demoralized when the capitalist dictatorship does nothing to reform itself! Protest demonstrations, all of which are presently organized by the fake “left,” are just begging the capitalist dictatorship (a designation which is also never permitted to be mentioned) to please, please be nice and “do the right thing.” “Aw, Please, Please, Please Mr. Capitalist-killer-mass murderer, Please throw us s few crumbs! Aw, come on. Please just throw us a few crumbs!” It is a rule of capitalist statecraft that a government must control and operate its own “opposition.” The U.S. government does operate the leadership of its own fake “opposition,” which NEVER EVER connects up the crimes of the capitalist dictatorship with the direct need to organize an economic system based on human need not private profit NOW, because Reformism is designed to FAIL!! Or revealing that this new system is called Socialism, a word which is never even permitted to be mentioned at any demonstration, much less explained, as done above! This is how the entire U.S. fake “left,” which includes: International Action Center, Workers World Party, the Revolutionary Communist Party (so-called!) and the Socialist Workers Party, Communist Party USA, just to name a few, deceives their members and others who read their newspapers and/or show up at their demonstrations. Protest demonstrations, when they are rarely held, are carefully designed to keep those who are opposed to the actions and policies of the capitalist dictatorship ignorant of the fact that the actions and policies of capitalism are almost always integral parts of capitalism and can only be abolished by overthrowing capitalism. This includes War and Racism! The fake “left” exists in order to always keep those opposed to capitalism within the framework of capitalism and continuing to support the capitalist dictatorship by asking it to “do the right thing.” Another deception is to hold “solidarity” events with Socialist Revolutions elsewhere! Nor does the fake “left” ever mention that capitalism can ONLY be permanently overthrown through a Socialist Revolution in the United States! Discussion today must center on precisely HOW to organize and carry out the Socialist Revolution here in the United States because this information is available and easy to understand. The capitalists rule through a combination of force and deception. So the first thing which must be done is to disarm the capitalist dictatorship by calling for and organizing a mutiny in all U.S. armed forces from Iraq to Afghanistan to Pakistan to Somalia to Yemen to Libya! As in Vietnam! The real reason and ONLY reason the Vietnam War ended in 1975! The morale of the U.S. Military has NEVER EVER BEEN LOWER EXCEPT IN VIETNAM as mentioned above! The time is right to start to organize a genuine Communist Party!

The U.S. Masses Would be Receptive to a Socialist Revolution in the United States

When 95% of New Yorkers agree that we need a new system based on human need not private profit, that is a already a Communist response. And that means that the masses WOULD BE RECEPTIVE RIGHT NOW TO A SOCIALIST REVOLUTION IN THE UNITED STATES! Although those polled would not necessarily identify themselves as Communists at this time because they have been brainwashed into falsely believing that Communists are “the bad guys.” In other words the capitalists have inoculated the masses against the only solution to the entire complex of problems confronting humanity, the majority of which have been created by capitalism, now in its Final Stage of Permanent War and State Terrorism. Most people do not understand: that the enemy of my enemy is my friend and the friend of my enemy is my enemy. This is inductive reasoning, the reasoning of science! The capitalist dictatorship of millionaires and billionaires (capitalism) is our primary enemy although few actually understand that completely or are able to explain such a simple concept in as many words at this time because of the relentless anti-Communist brainwash and the campaign to beat down, demoralize, divide, intimidate and infantalize the U.S. Working Class. Remember that in the final analysis all wars are won and lost on morale and every movement begins with the call. The capitalists have demoralized their subject populations, which have no Communist organization of any kind at the present time. And the capitalists know it! Although the masses have presently been rendered ANTI-COMMUNIST almost as a reflex, and often resemble those crazed extras in movies such as “Return of the Body Snatchers” or “Night of the Living Dead,” they simultaneously give a true Communist response when they agree that we need a new system based on human need not private profit, demonstrating both the pervasiveness and limits of brainwashing! Deprogramming the masses all of whom have been brainwashed begins with patient explanation. There is no other way!

Further Impoverish a Large Percentage of the Working Class and the Poor!
The Capitalists Are Deliberately Falsely Labeling the Capitalist
Solution to the Economic Crisis/Depression—Namely Standard Keynesian
Deficit Spending—as “The Problem” in Order to be Able to Sabotage the
Economy and Cause it to Contract to be in Accordance with Globalism!

By deliberately falsely labeling the actual CAPITALIST solution to the economic crisis (Keynesian Deficit Spending!) as “the problem” and using the false pretext of a supposed “federal budget deficit,” which the capitalists deliberately and artificially created for this precise pretext, the capitalist dictatorship is able to wage ECONOMIC WAR against THEIR OWN PEOPLE by DELIEBERATELY SABOTAGING the U.S. and world economy in every conceivable way. The capitalist dictatorship is thus able to wage economic war against its own people by CUTTING government spending and REDUCING DEMAND IN THE ECONOMY in order to SHRINK THE ECONOMY and ultimately the population (!) and is therefore not afraid of increasing oil prices, for example, as a result of their continually escalating wars in the Mideast! The Obama Regime, the Democrats, Republicans and Tea Bags go through a clumsy Mutt and Jeff (Good Cop/Bad Cop) Routine regarding “the federal deficit,” and debate ONLY about how much and about how fast to “reduce the federal deficit.” NO OTHER DISCUSSION IS EVER PERMITTED! The so-called “budget deal” charade had Obama and the Republicans/Tea Bags pretending to be “opposed.” The Republicans adamantly refused to agree to actually raise taxes on the rich and the con man and demagogue Obama agreed in practice, (!) offering instead to cut Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security! (New York Times, July 23, 2011) Some phony “Deal” with the outcome predetermined in advance! The “federal budget deficit” is then simply used as the main pretext to cut social services targeting especially Social Security and Medicare and to set the economy in motion to gradually reduce the U.S. living standard to TOTAL IMPOVERISHMENT!

Today the New Deal has been almost entirely demolished by the hardening U.S. capitalist dictatorship. Obama was elected in order to finish that demolition by first targeting Social Security, where within 100 days of taking office he immediately and permanently abolished the yearly Social Security Cost-Of-Living Allowance. The Obama Regime has even cut Social Security Taxes in order to try to undermine and expedite, in every possible way, the ELIMINATION of Social Security, NOT to “put more money to the Workers’ paychecks, the false pretext concocted by the Obama Regime! The capitalist dictatorship is able to get away with this because there is NO REAL OPPOSITION, meaning ORGANIZED Communist opposition in the United States! The capitalist dictatorship DELIBERATELY and METHODOLOGICALLY creates “budget deficits” BY TAXING ALL INCOME OF THE WORKING CLASS, the POOR and the middle class, while REFUSING TO TAX ALL INCOME of the millionaires and billionaires and even giving Tax Cuts for The Rich, (Bush and Obama!). David Stockman, Ronald Reagan’s Director of the Office of Management and Budget, explained in his 1986 book “The Triumph of Politics: Why The Reagan Revolution Failed,” that the PURPOSE of “Supply-Side Economics” was to “create a Strategic Budget Deficit in order to DIVERT money from social spending.” This was also the actual purpose for the 4.7 $trillion in Bank Bailouts backed up by $23.7 trillion “if necessary. (Associated Press, July 20, 2009). (Computer Search: “US Financial Market Bailout Tab Hits $4.7 Trillion.”) This is all the result of the deliberate failure to implement a Progressive Tax Structure in the United States. The capitalists’ deliberate failure to create large scale Federal Jobs Programs to put people back to work is the other side of the equation. (See above!)

INSTEAD the capitalist dictatorship has instituted a REGRESSIVE TAX STRUCTURE in the U.S. and deliberately DIVERTS as much tax money as possible, almost all of it collected primarily from the Working Class and the Poor, away from social programs TO the capitalists themselves via so-called Tax-Cut/Supply-Side Economics, and grants landlords and utilities perpetual/astronomical rate increases and deliberately keeps foreclosure rates MAXIMALLY HIGH in order to keep the American people impoverished as much as possible in order to maximally increase homelessness and are now pulling out all the stops and GOING FOR BROKE! Broke, meaning the U.S. masses, who are being set up for a mass extermination as victims of economic warfare, biological warfare and psychological warfare by the U.S. capitalist dictatorship!

Progressive Taxation is Good for the Economy!
Regressive Taxation is Bad for the Economy!
The Capitalist Dictatorship Keeps the Masses Totally Confused About Taxes!

There is never any explanation provided concerning the vast difference between progressive taxes, which normally tax the rich more than 90% of their total gross —–income, versus regressive taxes which tax the poor primarily and which are correctly opposed by the masses. By cleverly manipulating and omitting these simple, fundamental facts of taxation the capitalist dictatorship of billionaires and millionaires and its media and “education system” are able to keep the masses totally confused and opposed to “taxes” in general, and with their reduced understanding this means that only regressive taxes are imposed in this, the most reactionary period of End-Stage capitalism.

The ONLY taxes which exist today in the United States are regressive taxes. A progressive tax is a tax which increases as the GROSS INCOME (NOT “taxable base!”) increases! A regressive tax is defined as a tax with a rate that decreases as the taxpayer’s income increases, meaning that regressive taxes target the Working Class and Poor primarily. Examples of regressive taxes include: 1.) Consumption taxes such as the sales tax and 2.) the value-added tax, 3.) the excise tax, which will target those with comprehensive health insurance as a “luxury tax” (!) in the so-called “Healthcare Overhaul,” 4.) Property taxes designed to increase rent, 5.) a Flat Tax called for by assorted Fascists which taxes the rich at the same rate as the Poor (!), 6.) increases in the subway and bus fares and tolls and 7.) increases in stamp prices combined with the most recent outright cuts in services and delivery even in the U.S. Post Office and 8.) The system of FINES, which the Bolsheviks abolished entirely in 1917, is even being ridiculously increased for every conceivable crime and administrative code violation, and will be used to raise up to $52 billion targeting those who fail to comply with the government “healthcare mandate” with huge fines to pay for the new health insurance, which is to increase by 10% even for all those who already have insurance!!! Note: the Payroll tax used to pay for Social Security and the FICA and Medicare tax does not “dampen economic activity” and is NOT regressive because it funds the social safety nets. Those anti-“Big Government” Fascists who claim otherwise are deliberate liars!

In addition, the GAO reported that 66% of U.S. companies paid no federal income taxes and 68% of foreign companies doing business in the United States paid zero corporate taxes between 1998 and 2005, while reporting $2.5 trillion in sales! This includes 1.2 million U.S. companies and 38,000 foreign companies! This is what is known as Supply Side Economics! The actual purpose of the $4.7 Trillion Bank Bailout was also to DIVERT TAX MONEY away from Social Spending! The capitalist dictatorship then blamed the present Depression (NOT “Recession!”) on the masses themselves for “living too high off the hog!” Combined New Deal and WWII spending in a program of standard CAPITALIST Keynesian Deficit spending to 37% of the Gross Domestic Product primarily on Federal Jobs Programs is what lifted the U.S. economy and then the world economy out of the Great Depression. The U.S. capitalist dictatorship has thus lost all legitimacy to rule and lost all right to sovereignty in the United States OR ANYWHERE ELSE!

The Rich Effectively Pay No Taxes!

Although the Bush and Obama Tax Cuts for the Rich were very effective in helping to create a large federal deficit, the money which was handed over to the millionaires and billionaires in that scheme is virtually NOTHING in comparison with the potential tax monies available if all income were taxed! In other words it is not the Top Tax Rate which is important, but the Social Security Wage Base, which is now still only $106,800! No income taxes are paid over that amount! But the U.S. population is helpless in the face of this theft because it is presently demoralized, divided, intimidated, largely infantalized and totally brainwashed. The masses have no knowledge whatever of what is being done to them! ZERO public awareness, ZERO organization and ANTI-COMMUNIST BRAINWASH is why the capitalist dictatorship is able to get away without taxing ALL INCOME but only the first $106,800 (!) and get away with it!!!!! “Tax the Rich” is thus the WRONG slogan entirely and misses the point TOTALLY! “TAX ALL INCOME” is the correct slogan, but the capitalists will NEVER EVER DO THAT! All capitalist politicians without exception and the media, a privatized arm of the misnamed U.S. “intelligence community,” (see above) remain dutifully totally silent about the fact that the rich pay essentially no taxes! In fact, this is the Number One Big Lie of Omission in the United States!

The “Effective Top U.S. Federal Tax Rate” is now only 27.9%, while the Effective Tax Rate for the average taxpayer is 18.2%. (New York Times, August 28, 2009) But this so-called “TOP TAX RATE” is paid ONLY on the first $106,800! And the millionaires and billionaires do not even pay the top rate of 27.9%. They pay the capital gains tax rate of only 15%…on $106,800! This is why Warren Buffet’s secretary, who is paid more than this amount, pays more in income taxes than he does. This was on the TV Show “60 Minutes.” Twice! BIG DEAL! “Intelligence” operative Nicholas Kristof’s July 7, 2011 column in the New York Times, discusses this awful “loophole!” This whole issue and other “loopholes” are a ridiculous cover-up! The fact that NO TAX WHATSOEVER is paid on income above this amount of $106,800 is completely covered up! “Tax loopholes” are thus TOTALLY IRRELEVANT in comparison! “Tax loopholes” are discussed with great fervor by capitalist politicians and media stooges out of a pretended concern for “fairness,” but are actually used to deliberately DIVERT ATTENTION away from any and all discussion of the key fact that the rich pay virtually no taxes whatsoever! This can not change under the constantly hardening capitalist U.S. dictatorship of millionaires and billionaires. Instead, so-called “Budget Deals,” are used to deceive and further impoverish the U.S. masses! That is one of the many reasons that we need a Socialist Revolution in the United States.

The capitalist dictatorship and its media falsely blame increases in healthcare costs, Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security as THE CAUSE of “the budget deficit,” which they deliberately created, and for the “need” to eliminate pensions, jobs and social programs and to get rid of unions, which set the pay scale for the entire Working Class. The truth is that the millionaires and billionaires have drained us totally dry! But this could be reversed immediately by taxing ALL INCOME! When they talk about ”taxpayers” and “raising taxes” they do not EVER mean themselves or taxing themselves! By “taxpayers” they mean the Working Class and the Poor primarily! The ”Middle Class” designates small business people, doctors, lawyers and the direct servants of the capitalists and they do also pay taxes. But the capitalists try not ever to mention the Working Class and substitute “middle class” whenever possible in order to falsely flatter the Workers so that the Working Class does not even understand its own identity and its destiny, namely to overthrow the capitalists and organize a Socialist society, which can only be created by overthrowing capitalism at its center in the United States. Do not for one moment be led into believing that “we just need to send the right message to Obama” or someone else and “they will do the right thing,” “Money for Jobs not for War,” “Please throw us some crumbs!” or “Let’s take it to the streets!” What are they actually “taking to the streets?” The false belief that capitalism can be reformed! This is what the fake “left” International Action Center and Workers World Party, etc. are “taking to the streets” and would like people to falsely believe. That is all based on the false belief in the Number One Big Lie of Capitalism, that capitalism can be “reformed,” but because of capitalism’s inherent dynamic, which is explained above, capitalism cannot be reformed! The capitalists have total contempt for the intelligence and organization of the Working Class. Right now with good reason! And the situation is going hell bent for leather to the right as this is being written.

WHY does the U.S. capitalist dictatorship do everything in its power to DELIBERATELY SABOTAGE THE OWN ECONOMY AND ALLOW THE ECONOMY TO CONTRACT in the U.S., Europe and worldwide? The reason is because of “Globalism” or “Globalization,” which simply means competition among the world’s capitalists to obtain the lowest salaried workers. To do this the capitalists must lower the standard of living and impoverish the masses and reduce their numbers in the United States! According to so-called “economic experts on CNBC on October 9, 2009, decreasing the standard of living in the United States was “a primary objective “of the Obama Regime “in order to make the U.S. more competitive under Globalism.” This in the face of the greatest income disparity, the greatest income difference, in ALL HUMAN HISTORY! There is enough money in the United States today for every single person to live like a millionaire with no exaggeration! The possession or acquisition of huge material wealth automatically means poverty, misery and exploitation of others! The economy is NOT going to recover and CAN NOT REALLY RECOVER, despite the negligible effect of the capitalist business cycle, unless the government institutes HUGE Federal Jobs Programs equivalent to 37% of the GDP, which is the only possible way to sufficiently stimulate DEMAND, the ENGINE of the economy. That is BASIC ECONOMICS 101! That is WHY the capitalists are NOT hiring federal workers! That is WHY the capitalist dictatorship is doing the precise opposite and is FIRING Federal, State and City Workers as fast as possible, precisely IN ORDER TO DECREASE DEMAND and to shrink the economy. The Obama Regime, while boisterously and pretentiously talking falsely about “creating more jobs” carries all this out with MAXIMAL DENIAL! GreaZy mass murderers/cutthroats like Barack Obama and apologist slimeballs such as Paul Krugman of the New York Times, were both awarded the Nobel Prize as a cover 1.) for the unprecedented long-planned unprecedented escalation in warmongering by the Obama Regime and 2.) to give more weight to Krugman’s non-stop deceptive apologia from every direction and outright cheerleading of the ever-hardening capitalist dictatorship. Don’t be deceived! The fake “Left” and characters like Krugman, whose role is to play stupid (the Nobel Prize Winner!) and HIDE the DELIBERATE ECONOMIC SABOTAGE and the PURPOSE of that economic sabotage, while always attributing mostly good faith to the capitalist murderers and falsely singling out parasitic “rentier capitalism,” one time for example, as the supposed cause of the continuing economic depression. (!) While Krugman has occasionally briefly mentioned the New Deal and WPA work programs in order to cover himself he never mentions what is actually necessary to lift the economy out of the depression. See above! With phony obscurantist “explanations” he tries to foster the false belief that “the government is just “making mistakes,” “just not doing enough” and/or rarely “being mean-spirited. Why don’t they just listen to reason?” More concerned about his own credibility than that of the Regime’s, Professional Liar Krugman, rather than actually tell the truth, once again falsely attributes GOOD FAITH to Obama and the Republicans when he pretends to hedge: “Maybe” Obama “basically shares the (Republican’s) diagnosis of what ails our economy and what should be done to fix it.” (New York Times, July 8, 2011) The truth is that the only way to put people back to work today is through Socialism, which can only be achieved by carrying out a Socialist Revolution in the United States.

All the Wealth Now Owned by the Millionaires and
Billionaires was STOLEN from The Working Class!

The capitalists have effectively stolen all of their wealth from the Working Class by expropriating the Surplus Value from the goods and services the Working Class has produced. Surplus Value is the new value which is created by workers by what they produce in goods and services in excess of their own labor-cost (e.g. wages and benefits), a value which is freely appropriated, MEANING STOLEN (!), by t

Part 3 of 3:
All the Wealth Now Owned by the Millionaires and
Billionaires was STOLEN from The Working Class!

The capitalists have effectively stolen all of their wealth from the Working Class by expropriating the Surplus Value from the goods and services the Working Class has produced. Surplus Value is the new value which is created by workers by what they produce in goods and services in excess of their own labor-cost (e.g. wages and benefits), a value which is freely appropriated, MEANING STOLEN (!), by the capitalists as gross PROFIT, and which is the basis of capital accumulation, meaning accumulation of their WEALTH! That is the basis of capitalism! It is the basis of all the money the capitalist have acquired and use for the formation of companies and corporations, banks, bank loans, the issuance of stock, purchase and ownership of private property, etc. It is time to take back what is rightfully ours—ALL the wealth which WE, the Working Class, NOT the capitalist class, has produced! As mentioned above there is enough money in the United States today for every single person to live like a millionaire with no exaggeration! The possession or acquisition of huge material wealth automatically means poverty, misery and exploitation of others! Taking back this wealth first requires taking STATE POWER and is one more reason to begin to organize a genuine Communist party with the objective of carrying out a Socialist Revolution in the United States!

The basic question of every revolution is that of state power. The state is nothing more than a machine for suppressing one class by another. Unless this question is understood, there can be no intelligent participation in the Socialist Revolution, not to speak of guidance of the revolution. Only in a Socialist Revolution carried out in the center of world capitalism does the capitalist class permanently lose state power! Although the U.S. capitalist regime today is composed largely of Bonapartists, Fascists and Proto-Fascists we do not yet have Fascism in the United States. We have Rule By Decree, technically a form of Bonapartism, in the form of a constantly hardening bureaucratic-military police state. What is most important to understand is that capitalism is a class dictatorship based on the fact that the capitalists own the means of production, the factories, the land, the banks, the military, the media (a privatized arm of the U.S. government’s so-called “intelligence community”), the educational system, where the state begins the brainwash of the youth who become the brainwashed adults and are instructed to pledge allegiance to the hardening capitalist dictatorship, which is falsely labeled “a democracy,” and to be ready to fanatically fight and die for the capitalists’ interests only—never their own interests! Finally, the capitalists own and operate the entire political process with their 2 parties which represent only capitalist interests. Even under a parliamentary system such as in France, Italy or England the capitalists run all of the parties including those that falsely claim to be “Communist.” In addition, all of the U.S. presidential “elections” outcomes are rigged in advance, or if need be, during the election or after the election as they were in 2000 and 2004—and have been ever since Watergate. The Working Class, middle class, middle-income earners and the Poor can never be fairly represented under capitalism. Even the capitalists have no future under capitalism! The survival of civilization and all life itself therefore depends on carrying out a Socialist Revolution here in the United States, which will then follow automatically worldwide because there will be no more center of world capitalism-imperialism.

Function of the State During and After
The Socialist Revolution in the United States:

Once the Socialist Revolution has been consolidated, the capitalists/expropriators have been expropriated and class society has been abolished worldwide, the primary function of the state as a class dictatorship to suppress one class by another disappears and the state as such begins to wither away, its bureaucratic apparatus smashed and the functions of the new government apparatus taken over by the very same workers who carried out the Socialist Revolution, against whose transformation into bureaucrats preventative measures will be taken, namely 1.) Direct Election, 2.) Recall at any time and 3.) Payment no higher than the union wage scale, which after the Socialist Revolution in the United States will be considerable! But before the process of the withering away of the state can be entirely completed the reality is that because the capitalists have created such a range of problems that immediately confront the very survival of the human race the Socialist States of the entire world will have to work together very closely to undo the damage which has been done, for example, the Runaway Greenhouse Effect, which has now begun. Only a Socialist Revolution will permanently end the capitalist tyranny by an insignificant minority of millionaires and billionaires by expropriating all of the capitalists’ wealth, which was originally expropriated from the Working Class (!), and will actually make it possible for everyone in the United States to live like a millionaire with a future and with complete security. This level of relative wealth will eventually extend worldwide. There will be a permanent break from capitalist dictatorship to a genuine worker’s democracy, from the dictatorship of the oppressors to the democracy of the oppressed classes, from the state as a “special coercive force” for the suppression of the Working Class, the middle class and the Poor, by an insignificant minority of exploiters and oppressors, to the suppression of those oppressors by the general force of the majority, after which the state in the proper sense of the word begins to wither away as the functions of the state are taken over by the general population. In the final analysis all wars are won and lost on morale. This analysis is part of that call. We have nothing to lose but our chains and a world to win.
