Weighing the Economic Scales of Politics

Free Market | Fascism | Nazism | Socialism | Communism

FREE Market = Government CANNOT OWN NOR CONTROL Capital
Fascism = Government CONTROLS Capital - but does NOT OWN Capital
Socialism (Nazism)= Government OWNS & CONTROLS Capital
Communism = Government OWNS & CONTROLS ALL Capital

"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men FREE to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall NOT take from the mouth of labor and bread it has EARNED.
This is the sum of good government." — Thomas Jefferson

In Marxist theory,
Socialism is a TRANSITIONAL social state
between the overthrow of capitalism
- and the realization of communism.

"Lenin divided Communism, the period following the overthrow of capitalism, into two stages - first Socialism, and then later, once the last vestiges of the old capitalist ways have withered away, [global] stateless communism or pure Communism."

CENTRAL BANKS : A "Central Bank" is the 5th plank of the Communist Manifesto. International bankers (Evelyn de Rothschild) and oil men (David Rockefeller) have commit treason against the United States and against the people of the United States by maintaining the installation of our THIRD Central bank. The first 2 "central banks" were abolished by Thomas Jefferson & Andrew Jackson. The "Federal Reserve Bank", a privately owned - NOT federal bank, is the 3rd. The IRS collects INTEREST on our "debt" to FOREIGN Bankers.

"Capitalism" = FUEL
≠ NOT an Economic *SYSTEM*!

All economic scales involve CAPITAL (the means of production, printing presses) - so the term "Capitalism" is again very deliberately confusing. It is WHO CONTROLS the capital that defines the difference between each different economic system.

The Corporation
Karl Marx's economic THEORY of "Capitalism" is detailed in his book "Das Kapital"; Marx coined the term in its current use. Marx created his "Theory of Capitalist Mode of Production" as a projected strawman argument with the presumed goal of justifying communism. Marx basically argues that corporations cannot be trusted - so they should be regulated (fascism) or owned (socialism) by the government. Prior to Marx, a 'capitalist' was merely anyone who owned capital (e.g. the car you drive to work). Economists like Adam Smith NEVER even once used the term "capitalism" in this sense.

In his work, especially the Grundrisse (1857–1858) and the first volume of Capital (1867), Marx defined capitalism as a mode of production characterized by the separation of the direct producers, the working class, from the means of production or the productive assets [Capital], which are controlled by the 'bourgeoisie' as private property. More recently Paul Sweezy has continued Marx's legacy in capitalist theory.

Marx argued that capital existed incipiently on a small scale for centuries, in the form of merchant, renting and lending activities, and occasionally also as small-scale industry with some wage labour (Marx was also well aware that wage labour existed for centuries on a modest scale before the advent of capitalist industry). Simple commodity exchange, and consequently simple commodity production, which form the initial basis for the growth of capital from trade, have a very long history. The "capitalistic era" according to Marx dates from the 16th century, i.e. it began with merchant capitalism and relatively small urban workshops.

People using the term "capitalism" are usually referring to Free-Market Economics (Austrian Economics) with FREE-Enterprise! In a true FREE-Market, the government does NOT interfere with the market with the exception of prosecuting interstate fraud - so people saying that capitalism is our problem are actually referring to the absence of a truly *FREE* Market (which can be defined as nothing less than fascism, and nothing less than socialism when the government is actually purchsing corporate interests on paper).

 

What is Communism?

Communism |ˈkämyəˌnizəm| (often Communism) noun: A political theory derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society in which all property is publicly OWNED , and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs. ORIGIN mid 19th century: from French communisme, from commun (common). See also Marxism.

Is this tomorrow? America under communism.Communism is the "granddaddy of all" evil in the economic sense. Under this system all of the capital is owned and controlled by the State.

Communism is REALLY defined as a government that OWNS ALL the capital. Although by strict modern [broken] definition, we are told that the PEOPLE control the capital in communist nations - but just open your eyes to Russia and communist China - do the PEOPLE REALLY OWN the capital? Read the Manifesto to find the REAL answer. Often in China the government forcibly kicks senior citizens out of their OWN homes.

Some communist countries will even dictate what YOUR job will be. Even if a Russian citizen wants to be an artist, he might still be ordered to work on a boring assembly line putting the same screw into the same part for the rest of his life; the Russian government has their own artists to produce artwork for them, so there is no reason for them allow the people the freedom to create artworks with the possibility of becoming a professional artist in the field of their choice. It's called a theory because it didn't work. Just ask his holyness the Dalai Lama; red China exiled him from Tibet decades ago.

The most familiar form of communism is that established by the Bolsheviks after the Russian Revolution of 1917, and it has generally been understood in terms of the system practiced by the former USSR and its allies in eastern Europe, in China since 1949, and in some developing countries such as Cuba, Vietnam, and North Korea. Communism embraced a revolutionary ideology (in THEORY) in which the state would wither away after the overthrow of the capitalist system. In practice, however, the state grew to control all aspects of communist society. Communism in eastern Europe collapsed in the late 1980s and early 1990s against a background of failure to meet people's economic expectations, a shift to more democracy in political life, and increasing nationalism such as that which led to the breakup of the USSR.

Karl Marx & Marxism

Karl Marx
Marxism
|ˈmärkˌsizəm| noun: Marxist. Marxian. The political and economic THEORIES of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, later developed by their followers to form the basis for the THEORY and practice of communism. Central to Marxist THEORY is an explanation of social change in terms of economic factors, according to which the means of production (THE CAPITAL; isn't it just greedy capitalism?) provide the economic base, which influences or determines the political and ideological superstructure. Marx and Engels predicted the revolutionary overthrow of capitalism by the proletariat and the eventual attainment of a classless communist society.

Karl Heinrich Marx (May 5, 1818 – March 14, 1883) was a German philosopher, political economist, historian, political theorist, sociologist, and communist revolutionary, whose ideas played a significant role in the development of modern communism and socialism. Marx summarized his approach in the first line of chapter one of The Communist Manifesto, published in 1848: "The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles." Marx argued that capitalism, like previous socioeconomic systems, would inevitably produce internal tensions which would lead to its destruction. Just as capitalism replaced feudalism, he believed socialism would, in its turn, replace capitalism, and lead to a stateless, classless society called pure communism. This would emerge after a transitional period called the "dictatorship of the proletariat": a period sometimes referred to as the "workers state" or "workers' democracy". In section one of The Communist Manifesto Marx describes feudalism, capitalism, and the role internal social contradictions play in the historical process.

The Communist Manifesto, which contains the basic program for all Communist and Socialists, explicitly preaches the destruction and abolition of private property. Karl Marx understood the power of controlling capital as have all Communists who have ever looked and still look to Marx as their leader. State-controlled capitalism (Communism) always results in high prices and low quality, because the lack of competition offers no incentive to improve.

International Workingmen's Association:

"First International" Communist Party

The International Workingmen's Association (IWA, 1864-1876), often called the First International, was an international organization which aimed at uniting a variety of different left-wing socialist, communist and anarchist political groups and trade union organizations that were based on the working class and class struggle. It was founded on September 28, 1864 in a workmen's meeting held in St. Martin's Hall, London. Its first congress was held in 1866 in Geneva.

It was founded by: President of the First International George Odger (British Trade Unionist), Henri Tolain (French Socialist), and Edward Spencer Beesly (English Positivist) on September 28, 1864.

Key members included: Karl Marx (German Author of Communist Manifesto), Friedrich Engels (German co-Author of Communist Manifesto), Lysander Spooner (American Anarchist), William Batchelder Greene (American Anarchist), Prince Peter Kropotkin (Russian Anarcho-Communist founder), Mikhail Bakunin (Russian Anarcho-Collectivist founder), Pierre-Joseph Proudhon (French "Father of Anarchism" and personal friend of Karl Marx who convinced him that private property should be abolished), Louis Auguste Blanqui (French Socialist), and Giuseppe Garibaldi (Italian Nationalist General of the RedShirts).

Following the January Uprising in Poland in 1863, French and British workers started to discuss developing a closer working relationship. Henri Tolain (French Socialist), Perrachon, and Limousin visited London in July 1863, attending a meeting held in St. James's Hall in honour of the Polish uprising. Here there was discussion of the need for an international organization, which would, amongst other things, prevent the import of foreign workers to break strikes. In September, 1864, some French delegates again visited London with the concrete aim of setting up a special committee for the exchange of information upon matters of interest to the workers of all lands.

In Europe, a period of harsh reaction followed the widespread Revolutions of 1848. The next major phase of revolutionary activity began almost 20 years later with the founding of the IWA in 1864. At its peak, the IWA reported having 8 million members, while police reported 5 million. Their stated goals were: defense of the working class, class struggle against capitalism, and establishment of a socialist society.

In 1872 the First International (Marx) split in two over conflicts between communist and anarchist factions, and dissolved in 1876. The Second International (Lenin) was founded in 1889. Lenin said "The best way to control the opposition is to lead it". The anarchists who left were still communist anarchists (AnComs), led by a Russian communist. The socialist who gave Marx the great idea to ban private property became the leader of the Anarcho-Capitalists (AnCaps). The "Circle-A" logo that modern anarchist collectivists are still branded with, originated from and represents the First International's "Circle-A" logo.

 

"Second International" Communist Party

The Second International (1889–1916), the original Socialist International, was an organization of socialist and labour parties formed in Paris on July 14, 1889. At the Paris meeting delegations from 20 countries participated. It continued the work of the dissolved First International, though excluding the still-powerful anarcho-syndicalist movement and unions, and existed until 1916.

Among the Second International's famous actions were its 1889 declaration of May 1, May Day, as International Workers' Day and its 1910 declaration of the International Women's Day, first celebrated on March 19 and then on March 8 after the main day of the women's marches in 1917 during the Russian Revolution. It initiated the international campaign for the 8-hour working day.

The International's permanent executive and information body was the International Socialist Bureau (ISB), based in Brussels and formed after the International's Paris Congress of 1900. Emile Vandervelde and Camille Huysmans of the Belgian Labour Party were its chair and secretary. Vladimir Ilyich Lenin (Soviet Communist) was a member from 1905.

Anarchists tended to be excluded from the Second International, nevertheless "Anarchism had in fact dominated the London Congress of the Second International". This exclusion received the criticism from anti-authoritarian socialists present at the meetings. It has been argued that at some point the Second International turned "into a battleground over the issue of libertarian versus authoritarian socialism. Not only did they effectively present themselves as champions of minority rights; they also provoked the German Marxists into demonstrating a dictatorial intolerance which was a factor in preventing the British labor movement from following the Marxist direction indicated by such leaders as H. M. Hyndman".

In 1920, the defunct Second International was reorganized. However, some European socialist parties refused to join the reorganized international, and decided instead to form the International Working Union of Socialist Parties (IWUSP) ("Second and a half International" or "Two-and-a-half International"), heavily influenced by Austromarxism. In 1923, IWUSP and the Second International merged to form the social democratic Labour and Socialist International. This international continued to exist until 1940. After World War II, a new Socialist International was formed to continue the policies of the Labour and Socialist International, and it continues to this day.

 

"Third International" Communist Party

The Communist International, abbreviated as Comintern and also known as the Third International (1919–1943), was an international communist organization that advocated world communism. The International intended to fight "by all available means, including armed force, for the overthrow of the international bourgeoisie and for the creation of an international Soviet republic as a transition stage to the complete abolition of the State."

The Comintern was founded after the 1915 Zimmerwald Conference in which Vladimir Lenin had organized the "Zimmerwald Left" against those who refused to approve any statement explicitly endorsing socialist revolutionary action, and after the 1916 dissolution of the Second International.

The Comintern had 7 World Congresses between 1919 and 1935. It also had thirteen "Enlarged Plenums" of its governing Executive Committee, which had much the same function as the somewhat larger and more grandiose Congresses. The Comintern was officially dissolved by Joseph Stalin in 1943.

Communist front organizations were set up to attract non-members who agreed with the Party on certain specific points. Opposition to fascism was a common theme in the "Popular Front" era of the mid 1930s. The well-known names and prestige of artists, intellectuals and other "fellow travelers" were used to advance Party positions. Often they came to the USSR for propaganda tours praising the future. Under the leadership of Grigory Zinoviev the Comintern established fronts in many countries in the 1920s and after. To coordinate their activities, the Comintern set up international umbrella organizations linking groups across national borders, such as the Young Communist International (youth), Profintern (trade unions), Krestintern (peasants), International Red Aid (humanitarian aid), Sportintern (organized sports), etc. Front organizations were especially influential in France, which in 1933 became the base for Communist front organizer Willi Münzenberg. These organizations were dissolved in the late 1930s or early 1940s.

The Research Institutes 100 and 205 worked for the International and later were moved to the International Department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, founded at roughly the same time that the Comintern was abolished in 1943, although its specific duties during the first several years of its existence are unknown.

In September 1947, following the June 1947 Paris Conference on Marshall Aid, Stalin gathered a grouping of key European communist parties and set up the Cominform, or Communist Information Bureau, often seen as a substitute to the Comintern. It was a network made up of the Communist parties of Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, France, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Romania, the Soviet Union, and Yugoslavia (led by Josip Broz Tito, it was expelled in June 1948). The Cominform was dissolved in 1956, following Stalin's 1953 death and the XXth Congress of the CPSU.

While the Communist parties of the world no longer had a formal international organization, they continued to maintain close relations with each other through a series of international forums. In the period directly after dissolution of Comintern, periodical meetings of Communist parties were held in Moscow. Moreover, World Marxist Review, a joint periodical of the Communist parties, played an important role in coordinating the communist movement up to the break-up of the Socialist Bloc in 1989-1991.

The OMS (Russian: ОМС), also known in English as the International Liaison Department (1921–1939), was "the most secret department" of the Comintern. It has also been translated as the Illegal Liaison Section and Foreign Liaison Department.

 

"Fourth International" Communist Party

The Fourth International (FI) is the Communist international organization consisting of followers of Leon Trotsky, or Trotskyists, with the declared goal of helping the working class bring about socialism and work toward international communism. The Fourth International was established in France in 1938: Trotsky and his supporters, having been expelled from the Soviet Union, considered the Comintern or Third International to have become "lost to" Stalinism and incapable of leading the international working class to political power. Thus, Trotskyists founded their own, competing "Fourth International".

Today, there is no longer a single, cohesive Fourth International. Throughout the better part of its existence, the Fourth International was hounded by agents of the Soviet secret police, repressed by capitalist countries such as France and the United States and rejected by followers of the Soviet Union and later Maoism as illegitimate—a position these communists still hold today. It struggled to maintain contact under these conditions of simultaneous illegality and scorn around much of the world during World War II, because when workers' uprisings did occur, they were usually under the influence of Soviet-inspired, anarchist, social democratic, Maoist, or militant nationalist groups, leading to further defeats for the FI and its Trotskyists, who never gathered similar support. Even after the Soviet repudiation of Stalin and de-stalinization, Trotskyism continued to be regarded as politically discredited and there was very little renewed support for Trotskyist ideas, particularly from those already committed to another form of communism. Ideologically, Maoists, left communists, and anarchists all consider Trotskyism, and thus also the Fourth International, to be ideologically bankrupt and impotent. Despite this, many parts of Latin America and Europe continue to have large Trotskyist groupings, with followings both young and old, who are attracted to its "anti-Stalinist" positions and its rhetoric of workers' internationalism. Quite a few of these groups carry the label "Fourth Internationalist" either in their organization's name, major political position documents, or both.

The Fourth International, in line with its Trotskyist underpinnings, tended to view the Comintern as worthy of conditional support even considering its corruption, and although it regarded its own ideas as more advanced and thus superior to those of the Third International, it did not actively seek the Comintern's destruction. It does not operate as a cohesive entity in the manner of the prior internationals. The FI suffered a major split in 1940 and an even more significant split in 1953. A partial reunification occurred in 1963, but the international never recovered enough to re-emerge as a single transnational grouping. Trotskyists' response to that situation has been in the form of its broad array of Trotskyist Internationals, almost all of whom are bitterly divided over which organisation represents the "true" Fourth Internationalist political continuity.

 

"Fifth International" Communist Party

The phrase Fifth International refers to the efforts made by sections of socialists to create a new Workers' International.

In November 1938, just 2 months after the founding congress of the Fourth International, 7 members of the Workers' Party of Marxist Unification (POUM) on trial in Barcelona declared their support for a "fighting Fifth International". The Argentine Trotskyist Liborio Justo, better known as "Quebracho", called for a Fifth International when he broke from Trotskyism in 1941. Another call for a Fifth International was made by Lyndon LaRouche (Marxist Democrat) after leaving the Spartacist League in 1965. Later, a 'Fifth International of Communists' was founded in 1994 by several very small former Trotskyist groups around the Movement for a Socialist Future.

In 2003, the League for a Revolutionary Communist International called for the formation of the Fifth International "as soon as possible – not in the distant future but in the months and years ahead". The LRCI changed its name at this time to League for the Fifth International. They became the League for the Fifth International (L5I), which has since grown significantly and as of 2010 has sections in Austria, Britain, Czech Republic, Germany, Pakistan, Sweden, Sri Lanka (the Socialist Party of Sri Lanka) and the United States. The League for the Fifth International campaigns in the European Social Forum and the international labour movement for the formation of a new International. A split from them before they were known as the L5I, the Communist Workers' Group in New Zealand, also argues for a Fifth International.

Hugo Chávez announced in 2007 that he would seek to create a new international, which because of the size of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela could become an actual fifth international: "2008 could be a good time to convoke a meeting of left parties in Latin America to organise a new international, an organisation of parties and movements of the left in Latin America and the Caribbean". On November 21, 2009, in Caracas, Venezuela, during the First International Encounter of Left-wing Parties, Chávez called for the convoking of the Fifth Socialist International in April 2010 in Venezuela.

It was reported that the Bolivian Movement for Socialism, International Marxist Tendency, the Salvadoran FMLN, the Nicaraguan FSLN, the Ecuadorian PAIS Alliance, the Chilean Proposal for an Alternative Society, the Guatemalan New Nation Alliance, and the Australian Socialist Alliance were likely to join the new International. Representatives of the Portuguese Left Bloc, the German Left Party, and the French Left Party expressed interest but said they would need to consult. The Communist Party of Cuba seemed to favor the proposal, but many other Communist Parties were strongly opposed. The League for the Fifth International critically supports the proposal.

 

Antifa (Antifaschistische Aktion)

Antifaschistische Aktion (German: [ˌantifaˈʃɪstɪʃə akˈtsi̯oːn]), abbreviated as Antifa (German: [ˈantifaː]), is a militant anti-fascist network in Germany.

The first German movement to call itself Antifaschistische Aktion was proclaimed by the German Communist Party (KPD) in their newspaper Rote Fahne in 1932 and held its first rally in Berlin on July 10, 1932, then capital of the Weimar Republic. Its two-flag logo, designed by Association of Revolutionary Visual Artists members Max Keilson and Max Gebhard, remains a widely used symbol of militant anti-fascism.

Groups called “Antifaschistische Ausschüsse,” “Antifaschistische Kommittees” or “Antifaschistische Aktion”, all typically abbreviated to Antifa, spontaneously re-emerged in Germany in 1944, mainly involving veterans of pre-war KPD, KPO and SPD politics, as well as some members of other democratic political parties and Christians who opposed the Nazi régime. In 1945, for example, the antifascist committee in the city of Olbernhau included "3 Communists and 3 Social Democrats" while the antifascist committee in Leipzig "had 9 members, including 3 liberals and progressive Christians."

In the French, British, and American zones, Antifas began to recede by the late summer of 1945, marginalized by Allied bans on political organization and by re-emerging divisions between within the movement between Communists and others, while in East Germany the Antifa groups were absorbed into the new Stalinist state. On July 11, 1945, the Soviets permitted the formation of the "United Front of the Antifascist-Democratic Parties", which included representatives from the "communist KPD, the Social Democratic SPD, the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), and the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP)."

In October 2016, the Antifa in Dresden campaigned on the occasion of the anniversary of the reunification of Germany on October 3 for "turning Unity celebrations into a disaster" („Einheitsfeierlichkeiten zum Desaster machen“), to protest this display of new German nationalism, whilst explicitly not ruling out the use of violence.
