The message Jeremy Corbyn’s campaign needs to take to the British working class
There is a fundamental difference between the democratic values social democracy has historically furnished and passed on from generation to generation for more than a century, to the democratic values bourgeois democracy has thus far stood upon and has used to pacify and conceal the reality of oppression in modern society. Our democracy is that of social responsibility and political engagement while theirs is the breeder of apathy, social disassociation and resentment.
There is a deep irony evident in the circumstances that surround the political life of the European working class, presiding in the vast difference between north and south and more acutely in the profound alternate existence the Greek working class finds itself to that of the German. While in Germany organised labor advances strongly with unprecedented industrial action in the country’s post war history, in Greece after an indecisive attempt in 2013 it has withdrawn under a sentiment of defeatism and impotence.

The role of revolutionary politics on the other hand, has always been to arm the impoverished sections of society with the political ideas, through which they will be able to identify themselves as a class opposed to the ruling class, and ultimately become aware of its historical role to transform society through revolutionary struggle and give birth to a new era in human history. That is to say, the role of revolutionary politics is to provide the political framework through which class consciousness will become revolutionary consciousness. . Read More
