"Nordic capitalism" is an overrated historical conjuncture that has already passed. A few crumbs were thrown to the workers to stabilize what were to be bulwarks in the war of counterrevolution against the Soviet Union. Meanwhile the Scandinavian imperialist cartels raked in mega profits from the arms and oil industries. Those days, which were never that great (especially if you weren't of the right race/ethnicity!) are gone forever.

Idiots who prate about different "varieties" of capitalism that can be supposedly "chosen" arbitrarily by some policy decision are idiots who know nothing about the bloody, murderous, unreformable system that they defend

No wonder Gates likes him, Pickety defends capitalism while peddling nonsense "reforms" to an unreformable, historically outmoded system in its death throes. Only the dictatorship of the proletariat can rescue humankind. Return to tthe road of Lenin and Trotsky's October Revolution!

Modern bourgeois society, with its relations of production, of exchange and of property, a society that has conjured up such gigantic means of production and of exchange, is like the sorcerer who is no longer able to control the powers of the nether world whom he has called up by his spells. For many a decade past the history of industry and commerce is but the history of the revolt of modern productive forces against modern conditions of production, against the property relations that are the conditions for the existence of the bourgeois and of its rule. It is enough to mention the commercial crises that by their periodical return put the existence of the entire bourgeois society on its trial, each time more threateningly. In these crises, a great part not only of the existing products, but also of the previously created productive forces, are periodically destroyed. In these crises, there breaks out an epidemic that, in all earlier epochs, would have seemed an absurdity — the epidemic of over-production. Society suddenly finds itself put back into a state of momentary barbarism; it appears as if a famine, a universal war of devastation, had cut off the supply of every means of subsistence; industry and commerce seem to be destroyed; and why? Because there is too much civilisation, too much means of subsistence, too much industry, too much commerce. The productive forces at the disposal of society no longer tend to further the development of the conditions of bourgeois property; on the contrary, they have become too powerful for these conditions, by which they are fettered, and so soon as they overcome these fetters, they bring disorder into the whole of bourgeois society, endanger the existence of bourgeois property. The conditions of bourgeois society are too narrow to comprise the wealth created by them. And how does the bourgeoisie get over these crises? On the one hand by enforced destruction of a mass of productive forces; on the other, by the conquest of new markets, and by the more thorough exploitation of the old ones. That is to say, by paving the way for more extensive and more destructive crises, and by diminishing the means whereby crises are prevented.

The weapons with which the bourgeoisie felled feudalism to the ground are now turned against the bourgeoisie itself.

But not only has the bourgeoisie forged the weapons that bring death to itself; it has also called into existence the men who are to wield those weapons — the modern working class — the proletarians.

Cast a Critical Vote for Scottish Independence, and Fight for Socialist Revolution to Bring Down the Monarchy, NATO and the Rule of Capital
For a Scottish Workers Republic in a Socialist Federation of the British Isles

On September 18, voters in Scotland will go to the polls in a referendum on the question of independence from the “United Kingdom.” All three major parties in Britain’s Westminster parliament complacently figured they would win by warning of dire economic consequences. But the threats have backfired and support for secession has grown in recent weeks to the point where it could win, or come close. The bourgeois Scottish National Party is promising a rosy future in a Scandinavian-style welfare state, but the economic realities of the capitalist world market would soon undo that. Most of the opportunist left is tailing after the SNP, while some British left groups oppose Scottish independence out of Labour loyalism. For revolutionary Marxists, this is an opportunity to accelerate the breakup of decrepit British imperialism, and to get the national question off the agenda so the class confrontation can come to the fore. While warning against illusions in the prospects of a capitalist Scotland, the League for the Fourth International calls for a critical “yes” vote for independence as part of a fight for workers revolution throughout the British Isles and Europe.

Comment: America did this (Score -1, Flamebait) 203

America needs COMMUNISM!

Also a note to idiots who babble about "true capitalism" versus "corporate capitalism" and crap like that. Listen, idiots! "true capitalism" is a fairy tale that real capitalism (the actual existing, historically developed society based on private property in the means of production and pervasive commodity exchange, the division of society into the classes of proletariat and bourgeoisie, etc.) tells about itself. It is a democratic fable that is contrary to al the laws of capitalist economi development. It is a pathetic excuse for an indefensible system in its death throes that must be overcome by WORKERS REVOLUTION! FOR A SOVIET AMERICA!
