Trumka: Key battle ahead is the 2018 elections

HOUSTON — Saying when an economy “doesn’t support the majority of its citizens, it needs to be fixed,” AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka says the 2018 elections are key. And in fixing the economy — by sweeping anti-worker elected officials out of office — workers and their allies will also counter...

Socialism is a common-sense path to a fairer, more prosperous and more democratic USA. Socialism is also a desperate necessity as capitalism and its unrelenting drive for profits threaten to make our planet uninhabitable. Working families in America – the 99% - between us create all the products and services that make our country the richest nation in the history of humankind. It doesn’t make sense that these collectively produced resources are owned and controlled by a tiny handful of billionaires. The fight for socialism is a dynamic process to fulfill the vision of a future of peace, justice and fairness for our nation and our world.

    The father of communism Karl Marx says in his Manifesto of the Communist Party "In this sense, the theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property." People are not going to be handing over their private property voluntarily to the communists. This...

    Thanks for writing in.  The phrase from Marx that you cite has been twisted and misinterpreted to serve the ends of the ruling class. The private property that Marx is talking about is private ownership of things like factories, banks, and railroads, which allow their owners to make money from the work of other people.  He has (and we have) no problem with working people accumulating  the sort of stuff needed for a comfortable life.  In fact, making life better for working people is what we're all about.  As Marx says, under capitalism, "private property has already been abolished for nine-tenths of the population." In other words, as long as the economy is run by a few wealthy people in...

Marxism demands a concrete analysis of a concrete situation. This is fundamental to an understanding of Marxist strategy and tactics.  The concept of strategy and tactics must be updated and applied to the specific situation the working class is dealing with at any given moment - in this case the post-election period and Trump's presidency.  In particular, neoliberal capitalism and the specific gravity of its current crisis and how it impacts the working class must be understood.  The GOP drive to implement right-to-work laws all across the country is clearly key but it's not the only issue. Alvaro Rodriguez, a...

In Engel’s address at the graveside of Karl Marx, he said “Marx discovered the law of development of human history: the simple fact, hitherto concealed by an overgrowth of ideology, that mankind must first of all eat, drink, have shelter and clothing, before it can pursue politics, science, art, religion, etc.” Another pertinent quote is that according to the labor theory of value, “all value comes from nature altered by human labor.” In the past, Marxists have focused on the labor part of that equation, noting that how human labor is organized, how production is organized, is the fundamental determinant...

The Oklahoma CPUSA  is just getting started. We have several folks who attend monthly  webinars taught by CPUSA leaders: seven all told.  We do a email newsletter once a month to about 50 comrades who are on the national register of members that live in Oklahoma. We hope to gear ourselves up for future tabling events in Oklahoma for 2018 especially around the many college campuses during their spring and fall semesters. Our goal is to recruit millennials and provide national support through education to these younger potential members. We have a Facebook page and are working to build its...
