Socialist Economics

21st June 2021

 1: Commodities It is impossible to understand the way in which the Capitalist system works without some knowledge of basic Marxian economics. Such knowledge is invaluable to the Socialist because he can use it to expose the myth that the capitalist is the lynch-pin of society and without him, civilization would perish. The Marxist theory […]

The Ideas of the WSM

31st May 2021

Socialists know that it is difficult for our fellow-workers to recognise and acknowledge their servile status because wage-slavery is cloaked with many disguises. The absence of legal forms of slavery and serfdom serve to hide the true nature of modern slavery. And because the capitalist class with their media of indoctrination, it is indeed difficult to find the truth. […]

Trade Unions (2/3)

11th January 2023

The Socialist Attitude Toward Trade Unions.  The aim of trade unions is not socialism and, therefore, the principles and policy of The World Socialist Movement are quite distinct from those of trade unions. Trade unions are organised within capitalism to “collectively bargain” with employers in terms of wage slavery. The World Socialist Movement’s aim is […]

The Bitter Truth  It has always been popular in the media to denounce totalitarian regimes under which trade unions are regulated appendages of the State and strikes are forbidden.  The Tories persistently present their assault upon unions, with all its contradictions, as being in defence of the rights of the individual and customers.The process is one of […]
