In our current society the themes environmentalism and animal welfare are usually attributed to leftwing groups. Most of the modern environmentalists and animal rights activists believe that animal welfare and the environment are inextricably bound to the struggle for human rights, so in their opinion incompatible with "intolerant and racist" nationalist views. It’s surprising that most of them are completely unaware of the nationalist roots of radical green thought.
We can find the origin of radical green thought in the 19th century.
In this period the first animal welfare associations were founded throughout several countries and the first onset is made towards a different attitude concerning animals in national and local laws. Peculiar is that the legal translation of this thought at first instance didn’t originate from a new moral perspective towards animals and the environment, but seems to be dictated from Kantian views (conform the ideas of Immanuel Kant, a German philosopher during the time of the enlightenment). They assumed that cruelty towards animals could lead to cruelty towards people. These laws stemmed from a paternalistic moral education instead of a real involvement with the suffering of animals. At first instance only the animal unfriendly practices of the so-called "lower classes" were addressed and the animal unfriendly practices of the "higher classes" were not limited. They thought the wealthy class wouldn’t lower their standards to banalities and cruelty towards other people. The whole flora and fauna were during this time subjected to mankind and their only use was considered to serve mankind. This was a strictly anthropocentric thought.
We must mention the German philosopher Ludwig Klages (1872-1956) if we're talking about the history of radical green thought. Anno 1913 he wrote the leading essay "Mensch und Erde". He excoriated the felling of ancient forests, the abominable treatment of cattle, the extermination of animal and plant species, the urbanization and the precipitation of industrial carbon black. In general the overall demise of the (untouched) nature. All subjects that still remain up to date until today. The deep-seated grounds Klages pointed out as the cause (progression, science and technique, followed by consumerism and utility thinking) for the adversity made him one of the predecessors of the contemporary environmentalist radicals. According to Klages the ecological disaster that awaits us, could only be turned around by a just as comprehensive resistance. Resistance against the economic attitude, the bourgeois society, democracy, technique and individualism.
This conservative cultural criticism of Klages gained a lot of support during the 20's among the German youth movement Wandervogel (which later on integrated into the national-socialist movement). Later on Klages became one of the most influential ideologues during the rise of the Third Reich.
The National-Socialist views about the protection of animals were different from, the till then ruling anthropocentric perspective. Within the NSDAP they felt that animals should be protected for their own interest instead of the interest of mankind. Within National-Socialist Germany there was a lot of support for animal welfare and nature, as well as among many leading figures within the NSDAP. Air force chief Hermann Göring was known as an animal lover, supporter of environmental conservation and a strong proponent for a ban on vivisection. The leader of the SS, Heinrich Himmler, owned his own eco-farm. And Adolf Hitler himself was a vegetarian, nature and animal lover and since the beginning of his political career an abstainer and an avid supporter of homeopathy. The NSDAP was revolutionary in its measures to safeguard the protection of animals and nature. The National-Socialists where active conservationalists:
- They encouraged biological-dynamic agriculture and founded several National parks.
- Protection of species and animal welfare were of a huge importance.
- The slaughter of animals was regulated and the hunt strictly restricted.
- The NSDAP undertook campaigns to make people eat healthier and make them use (seasonal) local products.
- After Hitler came to power one of his first acts was a ban on the alive cooking of lobsters and crabs.
- Soon after this a ban on vivisection followed.
- The use of animals - for example by movies or public events - was established by law to prevent pain or health damage to the animals.
- The transport of animals was restricted.
- Forced feeding of poultry and cutting of frog legs from living frogs was banned.
- A prohibition was accepted concerning living fish and cold blooded.
- Reforesting and the protection of millions of trees were also important to the NSDAP.
There are numerous more examples of laws and provisions that were adopted to secure the welfare of the environment. Animal protection even became an educational topic on lower, middle and higher schools.
Because of this it’s not surprising that the conservational list of laws from the NSDAP was one of the most extensive ever. Its policy isn't equaled by any nation or regime. Even until today - like in Germany - the influence of National-Socialism can be found in animal welfare laws, although these countries and governments will always deny this fact.
Sincere animal rights activists and environmentalists would indulge a Party that knew a comprehensive legislation regarding the interest of animals and the environment. But because in this case it’s about the NSDAP it’s demonized and depreciated in advance. However in the history of radical green thought almost none leftwing roots can be found. Within the leftwing political spectrum nature was simply seen as a reservoir of usable objects at the service of mankind until the late '50's. The prevailing view within the leftwing theorists was that nature was only there to serve human beings and people only had to threat it conscientious. Karl Marx even went further halfway the 19th century. He acclaimed the exploitation of nature. According to Marx the submission of nature meant the emancipation of mankind. From the '60's onwards environmentalism and related subjects increasingly came in the spotlight and were considered a leftwing theme. By this we came back to square one and the anthropocentric perspective had been re-introduced. Again it’s more about the future of mankind in a spoiled environment instead of nature as an individual isolated phenomenon.

For most people development equals progress, civilization, evolution and in general evokes only positive associations. But what is development? Is our contemporary society a good example of development and how it should be?
The progressive thinking has formed the basis for our current selfish and consumption driven society. In no way has it contributed to human progress but solely to a materialist and selfish commonalty. People are formed into uniform producers and consumers in the globalized world economy. Docile slaves, who as long as they can buy, buy, buy, buy, won't rise up against the current neoliberal capitalist order.
Modern Western society evolves around three commandments; Thou shall compete, thou shall achieve and above all thou shall consume. Is this the progress we preach? A selfish society that solely is obsessed with its own consumerism?
The whole concept of humanitarian aid is squared on this progressive thinking; possessions and economic growth equals fortune. Economic growth has created a global battlefield in which, on a daily basis several animal and plant species extinct or are being threatened by extinction, millions of people are getting poorer by the day while the rich elite only becomes richer and richer. This development leads us to an immense down-grade of human existence and all other species on earth.
Humanitarian aid is a facade. Western countries are trying to impose the globalist "Western" way of living to people in countries with completely different cultures. In the process, the colonial past is usually used to animate the white guilt once again. Surely we would be responsible for the poverty in third world countries and therefore we are obligated to donate money time and time again.
All the great success stories we are told by governmental and nongovernmental organizations blind us for the reality, the real hard truth. Humanitarian aid is a blatant lie, an illusion. Nothing more than a shiny bubble to keep us happy, so we don't ask questions about where our tax money went. Humanitarian aid has become nothing more than a flourishing highly profitable industry funded by our tax money.
As soon as the economy of a third world country is starting to attract a little bit with the so-called humanitarian aid and/or loans from the World Bank or IMF, the same authorities are the first to stagnate this progress again. These third world countries are simply indebted to repay their loans, with interest, to these authorities. In that sense humanitarian aid is nothing more then an extra taxation for the Westerners, which after a small detour eventually disappears in the pockets of the big finance. In some ways humanitarian aid, in its present form, can be considered as a form of terrorism or even genocide.
After colonialism in its original form disappeared, a new kind of imperialism arose, this time in a more adequate form. Imperialism through debt.
The decolonized countries where forced to rebuild their economy and country to exist to the parable of the Western world and to participate in the world economy. Because they couldn’t realize this on their own, they got saddled with an enormous debt via agencies like the World Bank or the IMF. Because these countries couldn’t meet their financial obligations to the banks they got deferral and/or the possibility to get a new loan, something the new corrupt or dictatorial rulers usually were happy to accept.
The billions of humanitarian aid often find their way to set appallingly bureaucratic governments and private organizations that are equally bureaucratic. Professor Jeffrey Winters estimated that in 2004 over 100 billion dollars of the World Bank ended in the hands of local corrupt swindlers. The African Union estimated in 2002 that corruption costs the African continent approximately 150 billion dollars on a yearly basis. So why don't the international lenders open their eyes? Trays full of aid money that is simply given, only encourages corruption. No single serious attempt is made to rid third world countries from their addictive drug named; humanitarian aid.
The contemporary debt of these countries, increased by interest, is nowadays so extensive that most of these countries will never come out of debt. They are infinitely dependant on the lenders and therefore the lenders posses the power in these countries. They got the power by means of economic sanctions or turning off the money tap to ruin the country or to settle it into famine.
In fact we are witnessing the exploitation of ever growing weak and dependent countries as well as the Western taxpayers by the finance capitalism. This imperialism can be defined as the parasitic or rotting capitalism. Imperialism led by finance capitalism has grown into the most dominant system. Capitalist monopolies control the number one position in the world economy and our current political systems.
World bank and IMF
One of the big players in this silent war called imperialism is the World Bank. This bank is not so much different from a Goldmann Sachs or an ING. The employees of this bank are also pushed to sell as much loans to countries as possible. It’s only about quantity, loaning as much money as possible, instead of quality (loaning money for sustainable projects). Many of the humanitarian projects are a complete failure, in many cases also by the hands of the World Bank itself.
The World Bank is involved in some very dubious projects like many dams and the establishment of transmigration projects that are more like forced deportations. The local population is forced to move, the natural habitat is at risk, tropical rainforests are cut, etc. One example of this we can find in South America. South American countries for instance are obligated to satisfy a specific export quota of soy or corn. To meet these quotas immense parts of the rainforest are cut to provide for enough farmland. Because many countries manage to satisfy these quotas, the market is flooded with the product which causes the prices to go down. Big business can suddenly buy these raw materials cheaper in bulk. For us, the civilians, the prices of course stay the same, until a harvest fails in which case we have to pay extra. Because these countries are incapable of paying their loans and interests back to the IMF and World Bank they are forced to produce even more. This leads to a vicious circle in which the people, ancient nature and forests are the victims.
Almost the whole policy of the World bank is a one size fits all policy for all borrowing countries. The eternal slogan with this is liberalize! Liberalize! Liberalize. These measures mean cuts on social expenses which compels countries to make health care significantly more expensive for their people. The privatising of state-owned enterprises and basic services as well as the basic amenities like electricity, water, health and education. Privatising social security, large-scale layoffs and a rollback of labour rights. Opening the market for cheap import goods, which results in wiping away the indigenous industries. As well as creating higher interest rates and less credit benefits which are essential for the survival of small businesses and farmers.
The conditions borrowing countries have to meet to get access to loans are a form of unauthorized political activities and are undermining the World bank and IMF their own motto. The World Bank together with the IMF has in the past consistently interfered with the internal political affairs of borrowing countries. The World Bank however states that these requirements are outdated and currently no longer so severe, this is of course blatant nonsense. Most countries have in the mean time adapted themselves in such a way that the necessary adjustments have already been made.
Conditionality still exists for borrowing countries. The use of conditions for loans on the subject of economic policy (like liberalizing and privatizing) in countries stays the standard way of doing business for the World Bank and IMF. Third world countries don't have a choice; or they impose bad policy or they become economically isolated. It’s the IMF that decides if countries can loan money from the World bank, regional development banks or private banks. The World Bank and IMF are in fact each others support.
Terms like nature, democracy and the role of the State get a new neoliberal interpretation thanks to the World Bank. The most important role of the economy of a borrowing country is taken over from the State by the World bank and IMF. These institutions only want new countries to serve the globalist free market and the growth of the world economy. And as we all know the free market is only advantageous for those who already have a mighty economical position.
The only reason the World bank exists is to secure private investments and the interests of the Transatlantic axis Washington-Brussels-Tel Aviv. All kind of multinationals have moved their production to third world countries to save costs. This is made possible by the World Bank which ensured that the markets and cheap labour of these countries were opened for foreign investors. The World Bank was never intended to help the poorest people, but to help rich people exploit the poor people. Despite of doing their job under such a noble banner, their altruist motive is a blatant lie. How else is it possible that since 1982 there is an increase of 60% of countries with debts and a huge increase of impoverishment?
The debt bearing countries pay a monthly 12 billion dollars in interests and down payments on their debts. For instance in the Philippines 44% of the GDP is meant for interest payments alone. So it’s no wonder that these countries invest less and less in social services and we see more and more poor people on our television, so the average Joe gives more money. In fact we as well as the third world countries are being exploited in this swindle.
If the World Bank or IMF have targeted a country foreign investors want to use (because of oil or minerals for instance) they try to persuade the Government of such a country to undertake the most stupid projects. Of course financed with loans from the World bank, while the project has to be done by foreign corporations with the right "expertise". Afterwards these projects usually prove to be preposterous, not workable, sometimes even dangerous for the local population and usually have to be removed or closed after a short period of time. While the foreign investors have profited, the country lags behind carrying a huge debt. The World Bank or IMF say that conditions are conditions and that they can provide a new loan. In this manner the countries fall more and more under the control of the IMF.
If a country decides it doesn’t want to take on a loan from the World Bank , and therefore won’t join the liberal world trade economy, it will immediately be classified as corrupt and thus be criminalized throughout the media. Take for example the countries known as the so called Axis of evil. All of those countries have in common that they aren’t in debt, they however don’t form a direct threat to the U.S.
Things start to get clearer if we just look at who are in charge at the World Bank and the IMF. The U.S. as biggest investor of the World Bank, instantly supplies the president for the bank, who has total immunity.
The president of the IMF therefore has to be an European. They wouldn’t want it to look like a conflict of interests. There are no clear criteria on which basis these presidents are selected. The nominations are an obscure political process that is completely dominated by the U.S. and the EU under a cloak of secrecy. Important decisions within these economical institutions require majority of 85% of the votes. However because the U.S. has a total of 17% of the votes in its own hands, they are the most important figures in the decision making process. The U.S. is the only country that has the right to veto decisions.
There is and there will always be a Third World as long as we’re pumping money into the Third World countries without abolishing the root of all evil, big finance.

We all see that the 'crisis’ is just getting worse and worse. This isn’t just an ordinary recession: this is the true face of REAL CAPITALISM! The nationalrevolutionaries can play a useful role in organising anti-capitalist activities in this moment. With the ACN/AKN we have recently seen an important evolution that can be registered in the rising appeal and relative rejuvenation of anti-capitalist politics and perspectives in the NR anti-globalization movements.
• How did the idea for an European Anti-capitalist Network come up?
The idea of an anti-capitalist network was born on 3 December 2011 after a political meeting in Milan. Several autonomous activists from the Netherlands, Germany and of course Italy came together to discuss about the main problem and main enemy of our ideology: World capitalism. We all did agree that this kind of capitalism (international capitalism) can't be beaten on a national level, so the decision was made to form an international network to support, and help, every revolutionary activist in every part of the world, starting on an European basis.
• What are the basic principles on which you organize as such?
We try to avoid terms like “organizing”, because we see our collective (the NSA) as a actionplatform where every individual person can participate in. Everybody can use this name, if it is at least within the ideological framework of the majority of the collective. We don't have members or leaders, therefore we are 'autonomous', because we think no person is 'better' then another, everyone has something to bring in, because people can think for themselves - we are all free (in the sense of 'independent') political activists.
• Organizational questions are always political questions: is the organising from below, in Autonomy, the right way today to move forward new concepts more adapted to today’s situation? And what do you think about Autonomous Nationalist (AN) movements?
We see autonomy as THE way to bring every nation into a socialist revolution. Indeed autonomy is the mobilizing, again we want to avoid the word 'organizing', of the masses from below, the working class, the true productive elements within a nation. But we don't see autonomy only as a leaderless concept for street activism against the system, but also as a form of politics and economy. Our goal is a decentralized political society based on workerscouncils (soviets), a true democracy (for the workers!). Also we want the decentralized economy of workers councils within factories, etc. As for the autonomous socialist revolution, we believe that the masses must become aware of the revolutionary idea of destroying capitalism and their State. We believe that the masses can and must do this on their own, without a leader or leaders, party or group to lead them - no political program can help a revolution because that party will be then at some point more important than the will of the working masses (bureaucracy). So yes, a autonomous revolution must every time be refreshing and contain new concepts because politics and economy always are changing, and our thinking, our action methods etc. must change with it as well.
As for the Autonomous movements we of course think that this could be the way forward (= towards revolution). We still see that some AN-movements in certain European countries don't distance themselves fully from several reactionary elements or still don't understand what 'autonomy' really means. Our main points of criticism are: 1) A total lack of a believable and valid analysis of capitalism and 2) A total lack of understanding of the importance of class struggle (many don't want to see that ONLY working class can successfully fulfill the national liberation. The (national) bourgeoisie has sold itself out to US-led international finance capitalism (in the period after 1945). We want to use class struggle as a catalyst for the suppressed and exploited masses towards revolution.
• Why did you choose the network form for this Europe-wide Anti-capitalist collective?
Because of the reasons already given to build a anti-capitalist network.
• ACN/AKN is supposed to be a point of departure for future developments. What are you going to do to make this happen?
We are trying to build a stronger movement by supporting and participation in every action in every European country within the context of a radical workers autonomous movement. We will do so with extensions of ideology knowledge, discussion about the actual political situation in the world, making propaganda and many more. We think ACN/ANK-network has the possibility to become a platform for unity of action between the revolutionary truly anti-capitalist section of the 'far right' and the truly revolutionary anti-capitalist sections of the 'far left', for example what Franco Freda did and worked for in the past and the cooperation of both radical 'left' and 'right' movements in Italy during the 70's and 80's.
• What is the situation of the Anti-capitalist Resistance in the Netherlands today?
Within the national movement here in the Netherlands no such thing as a truly anti-capitalist idea exists. Many within the movement say they are anti-capitalist but they don't possess a good analysis of what capitalism really means. So practically the only true socialist alternative is represented by the NSA and comrades of the 'Vrije Nationalisten” (Free Nationalists aka Network of Nationalist Socialists).
• In the framework of the present movement, have you established ongoing relations with other nationalist movements in your country? And if so, of what kind?
We have cut off ties with all reactionary parts of our (national) movement. Although we sometimes meet them on demonstrations somewhere in the Netherlands, it is nothing more then marching separately for some political objectives we have in common. It is not a cooperation.
• Organising International Solidarity is important as a way of pushing the struggle forward across Europe. So what would you say are the main forms of solidarity that would be most helpful?
Political education and direct actions, that are our main priorities. Only testing our theory into praxis will shape the ultimate solidarity. Action speaks louder than words! Good examples of practical international solidarity were in our opinion the European anti-capitalist mass-demonstrations/rallies in Frankfurt/Main (Germany) organized by the March 31 actiongroups (anarcho-syndicalists) and the Blockupy movement.
• Do you have any final thoughts?
Be a socialist, stay loyal to your class and nation, be a true comrade and real political soldier, keep up the struggle against State and Capitalism and do always think for yourself. (That's the main principle of autonomy!) Do not let others think for you and in stead of you. Rely only on your own force and do not trust any of the selfappointed so called “leaders” (especially not the ones within the so called “national movement”!). If we want to achieve our goals, then we can only rely on ourselves (our own strength) and on worker's solidarity! That are the things we want to say to our readers. Greeting to all comrades and thanks to the comrades of the autonomous resistance in Italy for this interview.
Anti-capitalist/socialist greetings, NSA Netherlands

While the contemporary man makes a fuss about the European Championship or what they are going to wear today, the ruthless economic crisis caused by finance capitalism rages over Europe. Our world and society perish by the hands of banks, creditors, speculators and the free market. Politicians of neoliberal, social-democratic and so-called labour parties only work for their self interest, government officials sell their soul to big business for a future job in those corporations.
Western communities are degenerated under the influence of oligarchs, the commercialization of culture and the huge influence of mass media. When society finally wakes up from its fascination for entertainment, fastfood and consumerism it will find itself discomposed of tradition, governed by an oppressive power structure and bound to the obligations of appropriations.
Finance capitalism is the enemy of all humans! In our current age and society this becomes clear for an ever growing number of people. More and more countries fall prey to the greedy clutches of this devastating power. Over the past decade we have seen many countries go down, while other countries already stand in line to jump of the cliff right into the ravine that is manufactured for the mob by the financial markets.
Banks sold risky loans to European states at high interest rates of which they knew they could never be repaid. Therefore these countries where forced to increasingly take on new loans, to pay the interest of their old loans. Next to this they are constantly pressured by the rating agencies, who continuously further downgrade these countries, thereby making the interest for future loans even higher. In the long run this process makes it practically impossible to pay off any loan.
This led to an increasing number of countries that have to be "saved" by the European Union. The conditions the IMF, ECB and EU require on these loans, for countries that get so-called financial emergency kits, make life for the common civilian nearly impossible. A class war appears to occur by raising the taxes, selling tourist sites, destroying all welfare, selling public lands, the sale of ports (such as the port of Piraeus in Greece), etc. Only the bourgeoisie can still live a normal life in the countries suffering debt, while the proletarians can only try to survive in misery.
By eliminating almost all possibilities for self-sufficiency it is difficult for these countries to ever get rid of their enormous debts. Still the bankers continue to reflect the image that their financial emergency plans are rescue plans. They don't tell us that the noose is more and more tightened for countries such as Greece.
In fact the financial "help" is only intended to help the banks and investors who gave loans to these ailing countries. The only problem the banks encounter is how to get the population of the ailing countries docile behind their plans, surely there still are people who find the behaviour of the bankers, rulers, speculators and creditors condemnable and want to resist against them.
The neoliberal, social democratic and labour parties of Europe all follow the same discourse; privatising the basic infrastructure of a country and "selling" its future income in advance.
National governments have to - whether or not voluntarily - surrender to the will and demands of finance capitalism. If a government doesn’t cooperate with the plans imposed by the EU and IMF they will take surreptitiously precautions to make the government fall so they can push a technocrat to power - preferably one with a financial background, for instance with Goldman Sachs. The governments degenerate into simple puppets of high finance by using national debt as a lever to cut off any national security, asset and ownership bit by bit from the people, for the cosmopolitan financial class. Gradually we fall back in a medieval system of kastes and classes driven by financial laws that stand above any public and common law, even if these run against the public interest.
The opportunities for banks to tighten the nooses for countries have never been as big as nowadays. Therefore the bankers are eagerly fabricating the loans that are needed to "help" the ailing countries. The EU loans keep the countries just long enough in the EU for bankers, speculators and capitalists to stash their money elsewhere. Once they removed their money from these countries, they don't care if the country goes bankrupt, has to take on the old currency and de-evaluate it into a third world country. Until the transition to the old, now devalued currency has become a reality, the country has to enter the politics of wage deflation and the cut back of public spending (except the payments to the financial sector of course). Because of this employment will decrease and the people who still have a job can barely survive on their hard-earned wage.
The biggest victim of the cuts and devaluations set by these countries is the worker, who's only product - labour - becomes worthless. Labour is the main domestic costs factor, if the wages cannot be decreased by internal devaluation (unemployment, starting with the public sector, which eventually leads to decreasing wages), in the end it will succeed by the devaluation of the common currencies. This is how the European war of the creditors against the ailing countries will change into a class struggle.
However, to realize such neoliberal reforms foreign pressure is needed to circumvent the domestic parliaments. Not every country will passively cooperate to the sell out of its peoples interests.
There however is something that is even worse than being exploited by the molochs of our time, namely the absence of exploitation. One is no longer needed to be exploited because of the globalization, which makes it easy for corporations to transfer their production to countries where labour is even cheaper. After all the principle of profit has become the main moral and regulator in this age.
Politicians tell us that as a country we need to make more profits and experience even more economic growth. This must happen against all costs, every year the numbers have to show it and it may never be subject of any discussion. The only one who will benefit through this is the capitalist class. Finance capitalism knows how to fool the public and tell the people that the principle of profit is the only logical one, that it is the meaning of our existence and the guarantee for democracy. Most people don't resist this notion and are conditioned to think that freedom and free market are somehow the same. There is no more struggle, they believe like weak docile sheep that the current and future circumstances are natural, insurmountable and unavoidable.
The rotten version of labour; employment, forms the foundation of our modern Western civilization. We despairingly cling to that which has become the most enlightend myth of our modern civilization; the myth of labour, progress, growth and prosperity. People no longer want to see that economic grow is not eternal.
We live in a rotten and completely failed system that artificially is kept alive, so that in a covered manner a tyranny and dictatorship can be exercised over us, without the "social cohesion" is compromised. Our politicians continue to lie to us and press imaginary enemies upon us to make us blind for the real enemy; the free market and finance capitalism. We have become a society of slaves and most of us don't even know it.
We have no single say in our own economy or about the economic measures that are taken to combat the crisis. These are imposed by the EU and IMF, the tools of the oligarchs. We lost our say and autonomy of our economy, our army and our politics. We don't live in a democratic country, we are slaves for the economic oligarchs. All Western countries have huge debts and are forced to pay these debts and interests to foreign investors, and by that placing them above our own domestic economy.
The definition of the free market means that everything is under the direction and power of the large bankers. The free market only leads to a market that is free for privatisers that buy a monopoly on all basis services so they themselves can determine the prices without any interference from the people. All public property ends up in the hands of speculators who create a new form of serfdom. The neo-feudalism looms on the horizon as the new reality.
All contemporary contingency plans and emergency funds are only set to save the banks from destruction, or at least the bankers. Centuries-old nation-states are replaced by economies established by bankers.
Economy has become a form of war. Just like military conquests, the goal is to control everything and to impose its will. This is what finance capitalism is doing these days. The declared war against the proletarians which is already almost won without the use of any army or conventional aggression. However, the attacked countries are just as devastated as though they were invaded by a real army.
Finance capitalism has gathered enough power to turn over the ideological roles and to pretend that the strive for national self-determination and resistance against the cosmopolitan claims of finance capitalism to impose cuts on labour, is bad for our people. Debts that never can be repaid are put on the shoulders of the people, without them being able to do something about it.
The ECB makes it impossible for European countries to get out of this crisis as an autonomous nation. By implementing the Euro it’s practically impossible for a national bank to finance the government deficits. European countries simply don't have a national bank anymore; all financial power is in the hands of the ECB. The public sector has been made dependent on commercial foreign banks and speculators. Politicians undermine there own free market principle by this, because the only companies that can survive this financial climate are the multinationals. The politics are financialised and economies are privatised.
Banks don't have any trouble to subject countries to austerity, cutbacks or even depression so that they have to sell out their land and corporations, lower the standard of living for the people, and so on. This only leads to a process where more money and power concentrates at the top of the economic pyramid. Again and again it is showed that it is not the richest people who suffer from the economic crisis. Millionaires become billionaires and billionaires get even more money. This is the dictatorship of the richest against the earth and all her peoples.
The problem is that credit is debt and debt has to be paid of with interest. When a country pays interest, less money remains to spend on goods and services. The bubble that is our economy is slowly changing into a nightmare, where the debts created by banks and politicians are taken from the civilians. Because our politicians bind us with the Euro noose we are bound to what the Euro does. Everyone in Europe should realize that by this path internal devaluation and inflation or even hyperinflation are virtually inevitable.
The past has shown us that hyperinflation and internal devaluation inevitably leads to revolution. We can see what is happening in countries such as Greece, Spain and Portugal where the markets are plummeting and unemployment is rampant; the masses go onto the streets and resist! The rulers never cared about saving the nation and its people; it’s only about private interests and private property.
Finance capitalism tries to split the revolutionary forces and blinds us for the real cause for all the misery and problems that afflict the world. We have to unite against the real cause, instead of fighting each other! The time is ripe for revolution, we have to join hands and take up arms. We must no longer let ourselves be led to the slaughterhouse as willingly victims; we have to enter the struggle. It’s time we liberate our peoples from the yoke of capitalism and neoliberalism. Not only for ourselves, the world and our future, but for all future generations!
