The Pandemic and the Worsening Crisis: Some Reflections on the Consequences and Perspectives

"All in it Together" or Class against Class

The following is the outline of a presentation for a CWO local education "virtual" meeting on Marxist theory of economic crisis for members and sympathisers. For obvious reasons the discussion centred round the current economic situation in which, as the meeting concluded, "The class nature of the alternatives are becoming clearer – all shades of government are embracing ‘leftism’, creating all the debt they need as they try to stabilise the system. For communists, there is still the need to intervene where we can, to spread our analyses, and to work towards building the future party."

The Virus is Capitalism

The coronavirus pandemic is battering the whole world. It has upset a social and economic order that appeared immutable. It has dramatically laid bare the reality of human relations in this society based on the exploitation of one human being by another in the name of profit.

Coronavirus is Not the Same for All

We are happy to publish this correspondence with an Italian comrade translated by the IWG. It illustrates, once again, despite all the propaganda that “we are all in this together”, what the working class really represents for capital … lambs to the slaughter, especially in dramatic situations like the one we live in.
