Even if workers prevail the Socialist Party points out that this is not enough. All the cards are stacked against workers under capitalism. Being propertyless they depend on the owners for a living. On top of this there is a further disadvantage. The government represents the interests of the owning class. Any government has at its disposal a vast arsenal of political weapons to oppose any economic action by workers.
The Socialist Party takes as its mission the political awakening of working people. We invite all who see that there’s a problem and are ready to do something about it to join with us. With our organised strength, we will liberate the thinking of our fellow-workers and unleash their energy. We will win them to the cause for which they are already fighting. We will excite the people with a vision of a world of plenty. New technology such as Artificial Intelligence, robotics and automation provides better, cheaper and more products with less and less labour. Society now has the capacity to devote the energies and talents of its people to satisfying the material, intellectual, emotional and cultural needs of all.
