Nobody lives a miserable existence, remaining jobless or even homeless and uncertain of their future. Hence the overall public health picture is incomparably better under socialism than under the richest capitalist country.

Sosyalizmde kimse işsiz, aç açıkta, sefil yaşamaz. Dolayısıyla halk sağlığı koşulları çok daha iyidir. Bu 20. yüzyıl sosyalist inşa deneyimleri için bile tartışılmazdır. Oysa kapitalizm sınıf mücadelesidir. Sermaye işçi sınıfından ürktüğünde bütün bu alanlarda taviz verir vermesine.

The great poet of the dawn of the bourgeois age, William Shakepeare, in what is probably his most renowned play, Hamlet, has one of his charaters say, “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark”, words that have become engraved, like many a Shakespearean line, in the common memory of humanity.

11 Ağustos’ta gerçekleşen ön seçimler (PASO) Arjantin’de neredeyse eşi görülmemiş bir durum yarattı. Derin bir ekonomik krizin bir yıldan fazla süredir yıkıcı bir hal izlediği ülkede, iktidardaki Macri hükümeti krizin yükünü emekçi kitlelerin omuzuna yüklemek ve böylelikle burjuvaziye verdiği sözleri yerine getirmek için İMF ile olan iş birliğini devam ettirmek adına ikinci bir dönem daha iktidard...

Las PASO del 11 de agosto han creado una situación casi sin precedentes en Argentina. En un país donde una profunda crisis económica ha causado estragos durante más de un año, el gobierno de Macri buscaba un segundo mandato con el propósito de continuar su colaboración con el FMI para poner toda la carga de la crisis en los hombros de las masas trabajadoras, cumpliendo así sus promesas al capital...

The primary elections (the PASO) of 11 August have created an almost unprecedented situation in Argentina. In a country that a profound economic crisis has been ravaging for more than a year now, the Macri government in power was searching for a second term with the purpose of continuing its collaboration with the IMF in order to lay the entire burden of the crisis on the shoulders of the working...

In the small hours of 30th April, the US puppet named Juan Guaidó, the self-appointed “president” of Venezuela, broadcast a video from a military base that showed him surrounded by some elements of the military and declared that his bid for Miraflores was entering its final stage. Guaidó has thus taken a step to consummate the civilian coup he has attempted with a military coup.
