The debt limit deal and the social counterrevolution in America
This is a very clear and concise analysis of the Debt Crisis Crisis Deal from the [Trotskyite-] Socialist perspective. It doesn't really differ much from the obvious.
That is a key here: Average Americans are quite capable of sussing out the import of the Deal and horrible impact it will have on them. The Socialists merely clarify the matter.
The Money Quote:
Bush and Obama bankrupted the federal government in order to bail out Wall Street, and now the ruling class and its political servants in both parties are carrying out a social counterrevolution to make the working class pay the cost. Since the eruption of the financial crisis in September 2008, the ruling elite has exploited the breakdown of its system to permanently restructure class relations and impoverish the working class.
That's it in a nutshell.
The question is who really cares enough to do anything about it.
I don't see the Trotskyites doing more than organizing yet another conference.
Yet talk of "Revolution" is all over the Web.
