Costas Lapavitsas: The Syriza strategy has come to an end. 30 April 2015

Blogger Andrew : It is demonstrated once again that there exists no "middle way" or "Third Way" to fundamental change/ socialism. The Syriza experiment even at this early date confirms the Marxist viewpoint. The current European anti-austerity protest movements in both the amorphous or Rad Social Democratic party forms is not a road to socialism or even to a popular democratic state in Europe or North America. The imperialist structures of the Eurozone and the ideological machinery attached to it were not dissuaded or rebuked by the Greek election of SYRIZA party. And while Latin American social democractic parties aligned to mass movements demonstrate that they can produce a deeper challenge to Capital, a revolutionary complete break with Capitalism is still needed there too or these states will fall.

A New Storm Against Imperialism Statement by Comrade Mao Tse-tung April 16, 1968

[“Statement by Comrade Mao Tse-tung, Chairman of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, in Support of the Afro-American Struggle Against Violent Repression” (April 16, 1968)]

Some days ago, Martin Luther King, the Afro-American clergyman, was suddenly assassinated by the U.S. imperialists. Martin Luther King was an exponent of nonviolence. Nevertheless, the U.S. imperialists did not on that account show any tolerance toward him, but used counter-revolutionary violence and killed him in cold blood. This has taught the broad masses of the Black people in the United States a profound lesson. It has touched off a new storm in their struggle against violent repression sweeping well over a hundred cities in the United States, a storm such as has never taken place before in the history of that country. It shows that an extremely powerful revolutionary force is latent in the more than twenty million Black Americans.
