Larry Holmes on:
Globalization, economic crisis & Obama

This report is based on the last part of a talk that WWP Secretariat member Larry Holmes made in Detroit to the local Workers World Party branch at a Feb. 9 meeting on Black History Month.

One of the important political contributions of Comrade Sam Marcy, the founder of Workers World Party who died 10 years ago, is known well by the comrades here in Detroit. That’s because Detroit was ground zero for the destruction of the auto and steel industries, the closing of factories, the laying off of thousands of workers.

A quarter of a century ago, Sam—and he was way ahead of his time on this—began to analyze the inevitable social consequences of the introduction of science and technology into capitalist production on a world scale and what has come to be known as globalization.

His assessment was that imperialist globalization, abetted by technology, would create a change in the character of the working class. At first he was looking at this country, but really it could be extrapolated worldwide, that the character of the working class would change in a revolutionary way. Up to the fore would come women and Black and Latin@ people in service jobs, low-wage or non-union jobs. And that would be the basis for a more revolutionary working class, a working class that did not have the baggage of chauvinism, jingoism, xenophobia, racism and sexism. They would not be fearful of their sisters and brothers on other continents around the world.

The working class would be globalized. More and more workers all over the world would look like each other and speak different languages and the distance culturally and politically between Johannesburg or Thailand and New York City and even Detroit would not be so great.

Every now on then, I embark on a recon mission over to the side. But it is absurd really, to call the readers and the subscribers of workers world weekly, America’s Communist Party Newspaper, the enemy. Their antics and writings found their website and in their rag (the downtrodden dont have computers, you know, and its fault of GWB and Global Warming or cooling, or whatever they are calling it these days…)provide more entertainment than they do revolution. You see, taxes are eliminating the middle class. Cut taxes and watch the economy flourish again. That provides more money for the treasury and allows working American to keep more of their money. Seems simple enough to me..

Read more lunacy from the “working class”, here…
