The heart of capitalism is in its bank-balance

So-called capitalist intellectuals draw their huge salaries just so they can lie to the people in order to prove the system's permanency. The Socialist Party has written much about the anarchy of production that it would require volumes. Our speakers understood, and still understand the capitalists’ squandering of resources. The production of murderous technology used in wars we classify as useless and harmful. We point out that millions are hired to produce such armaments are not doing any useful or lasting work for society. If instead of spending such energy and efforts in destroying things it would change the picture of our society a great deal. The Socialist Party also point out how, purely for the sake of profit, products are manufactured from shoddy materials. How the interests of the capitalists is to make sure that these products wear out and become obsolete quickly, so that they will then need to be replaced, as this will insure the most profit for them. And we point out how much unnecessary work and wasted energy this means. In certain branches of industry, production has increased so much that the capitalists don’t dare apply new discoveries, because their practical use would have a destructive effect on the current system.

The Socialist Party differs from every other political party in that it has set up the abolition of the wage system as its standard. The Socialist Party formed with the goal of fighting an effective class war against the property-owners. The Socialist Party is working on changing the basic foundation of the current social system. We accepted Marx's analysis regarding surplus value as well as historical materialism. The State is just a servant of commerce, a form of management, forced upon us, that is inadequate for conducting a modern social system. The exploitation of the wage system continues. And it will continue, until the workers take control of the land, the mines, the factories and the means of production, and abolish the wage system (or as some call it, the price system.) We are wage workers, wage slaves, and we bear the suffering of this system. The abolition of the wage system is our organization’s expressed goal, to which we hold to with firm commitment and conviction. capitalism can only be affected by money and gold. It is a cruel system which it rules unmercifully. Its convulsive grip and its terrible use are expressed in profit, poverty and want.

The future does not belong to those who are subservient. Let us organize, read, and learn, because we have no time to lose. The Socialist Party promises nothing, but if we become its members , the reward for our struggle will be a new, free, and happy system. A system in which there are no more classes, no more wage workers and no more parasites. A system, which will not be led by the privileged but carefully guarded by society’s producers.

What do we mean by no leaders

"Where are the leaders and what are their demands?" will be the question puzzled professional politicians and media pundits will be asking when the Revolution comes. They will find it inconceivable that a socialist movement could survive without an elite at the top. This view will be shared by some at the bottom. Lenin and his Bolshevik cohorts argued that we couldn't expect the masses to become effective revolutionaries spontaneously, all on their own. To achieve liberation they needed the guidance of a "vanguard party" comprised of an expert political leadership with a clear programme. The Trotskyist/Leninist Left may remix the song over and over again all they want but the tune remains the same: leaders and the cadres of the vanguard can find the answer; the mass movements of the people cannot liberate themselves. The case for leadership is simple. Most working-class people are too busy to have opinions or engage in political action. There’s a need for some…

Lenin and the Myth of 1917

A myth pervades that 1917 was a 'socialist' revolution rather it was the continuation of the capitalist one. What justification is there, then, for terming the upheaval in Russia a Socialist Revolution? None whatever beyond the fact that the leaders in the November movement claim to be Marxian Socialists. M. Litvinoff practically admits this when he says:In seizing the reigns of power the Bolsheviks were obviously playing a game with high stake. Petrograd had shown itself entirely on their side. To what extent would the masses of the proletariat and the peasant army in the rest of the country support them?”This is a clear confession that the Bolsheviks themselves did not know the views of the mass when they took control. At a subsequent congress of the soviets the Bolsheviks had 390 out of a total of 676. It is worthy of note that none of the capitalist papers gave any description of the method of electing either the Soviets or the delegates to the Congress. And still more cu…

Things are changing

We want no condescending saviours to rule us from a judgment hall. The Socialist Party is a Marxian party. That is to say, we base our outlook on history and economics on the theoretical researches of Karl Marx. On the basis of Marxian economics, we have pointed out that there is no solution for booms and slumps as long as capitalism lasts. That booms and slumps are inevitable products of capitalism and will always be a part of it. We accept the fact that there is a class struggle in society—but that its solution lies in the hands of the workers to take political action for the establishment of socialism when they understood and want it. Consequently, we have put forward candidates in the parliamentary and local elections for the purpose of taking control out of the hands of our capitalist rulers in order to clear the way for the establishment of socialism. We hold that all people in the world, regardless of colour or nationality, are capable of understanding socialism and its implic…
