A Tech Worker Explains Why the Industry Won’t Save Us, but Workers Can

Several major tech companies moved late last week to remove Donald Trump and some of his followers from their platforms. But we cannot trust capitalists to fight the Right --- only workers can be depended on to protect the interests of the working class.

“It is Only a Matter of Time Before a More Competent Trump Emerges”: An Interview With Warren Montag

Some people argue that the far Right is small. Should we be reassured that “only” 45 percent of Republicans, that is, 30 million people, support the riot at the Capitol? We must reject facile economism to understand the Trump phenomenon. This is more than a simple contradiction between base and superstructure.

The Storming of the Capitol Is a Sign of Asymmetrical Polarization

As the past year has shown us, there is radicalization to the left and to the right. But this polarization is asymmetrical: Trump is becoming the political leader of an emboldened neo-fascist Far Right, while the political leadership of the "Left" is becoming more entrenched in the establishment. That makes it all the more urgent to build a working-class movement for immediate demands and for socialism.

Voting Doesn’t Beat the Far Right

The far-right occupation of the U.S. Capitol Building shows us that simply voting Trump out of office wasn’t enough to destroy the far-right movement. Politicians don’t create movements --- they simply give them a political expression. We can only defeat the far-right movement through organization and class struggle.

The Police Stood By as the Far Right Invaded the Capitol. The Working Class Must Stop Them

This afternoon, thousands of Trump supporters from across the country stormed the U.S. Capitol building in an effort to stop the certification of the Electoral College vote.

Don’t Be Fooled By $2,000. Trump’s Speech Was Dangerous

Some on the Left are celebrating Trump’s call for $2,000 relief payments. But we shouldn’t be fooled: his speech last night was xenophobic, America-First populism.

Congress Votes $740 Billion for Military

As millions of people face unemployment, possible eviction, and other economic hardship as a result of the pandemic and economic crisis, Congress passed another bloated defense bill despite facing opposition from Donald Trump. If there’s one thing the Democrats and Republicans can agree on, it’s that there is endless funding for the U.S. imperialist war machine, and nothing for the working class.
