Undoing the New Deal: Roosevelt Created A Social Safety Net, Not Socialism - Part 3

"Government by Organised Money is just as dangerous as by Organised Mob" - Roosevelt anticipating Trump


Democracy and Class Struggle says New Deal in the USA like the Welfare State in Britain has been  finally undone by the neo liberal capitalist evangelists.

What lessons should we learn today 80 years later from the New Deal and Welfare State ?

My late comrade Arthur Evans who lived in United States through the New Deal and was a member of the Communist Party of The United States and in Britain was a member of the CPGB in the 1940/50's told me the New Deal/Welfare State was also a Warfare State.

The Communists in the United States became not just John L Lewis's hunting dogs but Roosevelt's hunting dogs and Earl Browder was the pack leader, saving democracy from Fascism was seen has the overridding consideration.

However subordinating domestic revolutionary politics came at a cost and the ease at which the Mob put Harry S Truman in power following the death of Roosevelt illustrated how narrow was the base for even a social democratic socialism in the United States.

Likewise in Britain the Welfare State came into existence at the same time of bloody interventions by British Imperialism in Greece and Malaya and the Warfare State has seen out the Welfare State.

Henry Wallace's Century of the Common Man gave way to the American Century of Time Magazine.

The American Century was a bloody Imperialist one, the Warfare State eroded the Welfare State and  destroyed the New Deal.

Lenin e Stalin (Raffaele Mario Offidani) - Walking the Great Road of Marxism Leninism Maoism - Red Salute in Song to Comrade Pierre

Dedicated to Comrade Pierre

Lenin la tua dottrina si diffonde e vola
 Lenin la tua parola è quella che consola

Il dolce sogno santo
Della gran città  del Sole
Che vagheggiava ogni cuore
Tu realizzasti quaggiù
   Lenin il più grand'uomo del mondo sei tu
   E come il Sole il tuo ideale non si spegne mai più

Piomba la belva fascista
Sopra ogni gran civiltà 
L'umanità  socialista
Or si accingeva a sbranar
Ma un uomo tutto d'acciaio
Ad aspettarlo era là 

 Stalin di Stalingrado la leggenda vola
 Stalin fermava il mostro la tua forza sola

Gloria sia a te in eterno
Senza la tua grande vittoria
Ritorna indietro la storia
Di due millenni o anche più

   Stalin il degno erede del gran Lenin sei tu
   Due vostri pari sopra la terra non verranno mai più

              We Walk on the Great Road of 
                 Marxism Leninism Maoism


North Korean Foreign Ministry on Trump's decision on Jerusalem

Pyongyang, December 9 (KCNA) -- A spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA Saturday over the U.S.'s decision to recognize Kuds as the capital of Israel:

The decision by U.S. president Trump to recognize Kuds as the capital of Israel and to move the U.S. embassy there well deserves a global condemnation and rejection as it is an open defiance of and an insult to the international legitimacy and to a unanimous will of the international society.

The status of Kuds remains so sensitive that it, for sure, should be solved fairly by means of regaining the national rights of the Palestinian people and striking a comprehensive and lasting solution to the Middle East problem.

This decision of the U.S. is not so surprising as it came from a dotard who had cried out for "total destruction" of a sovereign state at a sacred UN forum.

But, through it, the world will be able to well discern about who is really a wrecker of the world peace and security and who is a gang of hooligans of the international society.

Some countries, which still count on the U.S., would become conscious of the true colors of the U.S.

The U.S. should bear full responsibility for all the consequences of tension and instability that will be entailed in the Middle East region owing to its reckless and highhanded act.

We, out of our external ideas of independence, peace and friendship, condemn strongly the U.S. action this time and express our firm support and solidarity with the Palestinians and other Arabian people in their just cause to regain their legitimate rights.
