Olympic volunteers: One-time chance, or exploitation?

TOKYO (AP) — Unpaid Olympic volunteers do almost everything: guide athletes around, greet dignitaries and translate for lost fans. IOC officials acknowledge the games couldn’t be held without them; invariably smiling, helpful and praised by presidents, prime ministers, and monarchs. The billion-dollar Olympics are awash with cash. But volunteers work...

Brexit: Theresa May defeated…again

British Prime Minister (PM) Theresa May’s unwavering loyalty to and belief in her Brexit Plan “B”—a watered-down version of Plan “A”—as the only European Union (divorce) option, despite significant opposition, represents the most overused cliché statement in politics: “The definition of insanity is doing the same over and over and...

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.

  • Q
    I’m a sophomore in high school and I have had strong relations with the views of the Party. I am wondering what I should tell my classmates if they ask what the views of the CPUSA are?
  • A
    I was a communist during high school as well, surrounded by many people who hadn’t quite formed their political views yet. It’s hard to explain communism to a young audience that is perhaps not familiar with socialist concepts—especially when we are attending schools that indoctrinate us in the ways of capitalism. Our main goal at this point is to help people achieve class consciousness. Explaining Marxist ideas (like putting the means of production into the hands of the workers) is a great way to bring your friends and others to this consciousness. So, what do we believe exactly? Like I said, putting the means of production into the hands of the workers is one of the foundational beliefs of the...

  History didn't end in 1989, after all! The deep, global, dense, systemic crisis of capitalism proves it. The crisis has shown that its exploitative, oppressing, aggressive, predatory nature did not derive from its competition with the USSR and the socialist world. Those features are inherent to the system itself. It is not by chance that the crisis is located at the center of the capitalist system. The root causes of the problems faced by workers and peoples are inherent to the system, they exist within the system. And the responsibility of social-democrats, conservatives and other right-wing forces comes from...
