Why do we deny the superiority of the swedish model?
10 Nov 2005
Modified: 11 Nov 2005
Like most intelligent, aware US citizens I'm tired of Dubya, Condi, Fox Channel and the rest of the Disney Family telling us, the american public, everything's going our way.
It isn't.
I live, since 18 months, in Sweden and I can tell.
Recently, according to statistical devolpment I've been following for some time, the EU in general now has surpassed the US in most important economical aspects.
France, Germany and Italy are said to be in states of economical crises, but hey, what are WE then?

'Mort pour Rien'
10 Nov 2005
Had French society allowed for nonviolent social movements to form and flourish, violence would have seemed politically inefficient. Because immigrants and the working-class are so effectively shut out of French society, they have no other way to effect change than to violently demand it.

France: Racism, poverty fuel rebellion
10 Nov 2005
wwlogo.pngThe working class leadership in France has been weak on this question and downright reactionary at times. Right now they need to stop retreating. They must not confine themselves to mere protests against reactionary measures of repression. They need to demand that all the cops be withdrawn, that the emergency decrees be revoked. They need to come out for the justified rebellion.

The rebellious youth must be embraced as part of the working class. They may be unemployed, underemployed and/or unorganized, but right now they are potentially the greatest allies of the organized workers. They have overwhelmed a part of the state. They are mobilized and if they were to be joined by a solidarity strike against racism, poverty and oppression, the entire working class could push the ruling class offensive back.

It would be a mirror, but on a grander scale, of when the French workers in 1968 followed the students with a general strike and shook the ground under French capitalism. It is the lack of understanding of the national question, of the colonial question, of the importance of coming out against national oppression, that now stands in the way of a united struggle against capitalist exploitation itself. This must be overcome.
