PostSubject: "Shock Absorber" economics. Short-term 'fix'   Thu Oct 30, 2008 11:10 am

A critique of the economic crises posted by anarkismo.net, "Shock Absorber Politics: Pseudo Solutions To The Financial Crisis" was a short series of discussions within KOPA to analyse the imperialist policies being put forth in order to "fix" this economic depression. They do not go very much in depth into the actual policies of these politicians (since there are so many, with minute differences here and there), but rather address the cause of this depression (whereas the politicians address merely the effects, disregarding the roots of the problem). It's a good article, and i've provided the link below.

"In looking at these crises, there is a dominant tendency to only look at the effect of these crises and to only define a political orientation to resist the effect. The danger in this orientation is focusing only at a secondary element of the contradictions of imperialism, a tactical aspect, and articulating it as an end meant to resolve the problems. If our tactic is not dictated by our strategy, if it is not determined by a clear cut anti capitalist/anti imperialist strategy, the result will be a re-structured form of imperialism, simply a reformist approach. This is the line being offered now by the non-profit, non-political structures and by left petit-bourgeois radicalism. The core of the problem is the imperialist mode of production and the fundamental aspect of that core is finance capital. Our tactical struggle needs to be dialectically determined by the strategy of addressing imperialism and its dominant form of functioning."

I was on a float in NY two days ago, giving away stickers to apply to stop signs -- "You want to stop the economic crisis? [STOP] Capitalism".

Funny thing is Obama and Mccain have already pledged to protect capitalism I think were in trouble!
