Hillel Ticktin talks on:
THE CRISIS AND THE CAPITALIST SYSTEM TODAY
*SATURDAY 4 DECEMBER*, 1.30pm.
Marx Memorial Library, 37a Clerkenwell Green, London EC1, near Farringdon tube.
"The crisis is not simply a periodic crisis, but a crisis in both the strategy of capitalism and its structure, and Keynesians are not addressing these issues, whereas the right, consciously or unconsciously, is trying to come to terms with the real underlying political economic problems of capitalism … Sections of capital have decided to fight to the bitter end in order to inflict an epoch making defeat of the working class ... However one has to wonder whether the bourgeoisie has a death wish ... The cuts can only educate a whole new generation of the population of the need to change the capitalist system ... The contemporary form of the ideology of capitalism is now so threadbare that only a masochist can support it."/

STALINISM AND ITS DESTRUCTIVE LEGACY
