Kerry, Putin, they don't speak for Workers. We need our own voice, our own party

A working class woman asked me what I think about Syria. Can the Russians and the US solve the problems there? Can Kerry and Putin work it out? No they can't. Capitalism cannot solve the crisis in Syria because it is a crisis of capitalism just like the environmental crisis or world hunger. These are some of my immediate thoughts on some of this.

Only a global movement of the working class can stop the slaughter, the migration and humanity from heading down the slippery slope to total annihilation.  Only a democratic socialist federation of states can solve this problem. A cooperative of nations states on a global scale that can determine what we produce, and how we produce it. The global trading of what we produce can be determined on the basis of what humanity needs and in harmony with nature. Production for profit which has its origin in surplus value, that which we produce above what we are paid for our labor power is at the root of our problems as a global community of human beings.

We need to build a YouTube channel for this blog. I have a personal one and either would like to convert it or build a new one but my skills are limited. I could take some classes but that costs. We did ask for donations recently and published that on Facebook and although our fund appeal was read by a lot of people we never received $1. If you can donate to our blog and help with our work please hit that donate button on the blog at: "Like" our Bog's FB page at:

If you can't do that and you're in the SF Bay Area and can donate time to help me with this project please contact the blog at:  A rather cumbersome address I know but it's what it is.
