  3. The Economic Crisis & the Return of History

    The Economic Crisis & the Return of History

    The economic crash of 2008, starting with the collapse of Lehman Brothers, set off the deepest world recession since the 1930s, and led to the destruction of tens of millions of jobs internationally. World governments, led by the newly-elected Obama administration, handed out trillions of dollars to ensure the bad debts of the banks and of financial speculators, even while imposing 50% wage cuts on US autoworkers and impoverishment of the broad population.

    David North, chairman of the International Editorial Board of the World Socialist Web Site, argues that the rapid growth of social inequality, rooted in the historic crisis of the capitalist system, will bring on titanic class struggles internationally. The complete breakdown of democratic forms of government, the turn to the far-right by today's ruling elites, the mad pursuit of escalating wars, and the emergence of working class struggle, all provide further confirmation that far from being at an end, "History" is very much with us.

  5. The Historical & International Foundations of the SEP, Sri Lanka

    The Historical & International Foundations of the SEP, Sri Lanka

    Adopted by the Socialist Equality Party (Sri Lanka) at its 2011 founding congress in Colombo, this document depicts the 75-year struggle of the Fourth International in South Asia for Trotsky’s theory of Permanent Revolution. The founding in 1942 of the Bolshevik Leninist Party of India (BLPI), by leaders of the Lanka Sama Samaja Party (LSSP) who had escaped British jails in Ceylon, marked a decisive advance for the Fourth International in Asia. The document traces the rise, decline and ultimate betrayal of the LSSP, which joined the 1964 coalition government of Madame Sirima Bandaranaike, abandoning the struggle to unify the Tamil and Sinhalese working class, and opening the road to the bloody 25-year civil war from 1983 to 2009.

    Socialism and the Fight Against Imperialist War

    One hundred years after the outbreak of World War One, mankind confronts the danger of a new and even greater catastrophe.

The International Committee of the Fourth International insists that the struggle against war is inseparable from the struggle for socialism.

  9. Was There an Alternative to Stalinism in the USSR?

    Was There an Alternative to Stalinism in the USSR?

    In these two essays Russian Marxist Historian Vadim Rogovin refutes the claim that the rise of Stalinism in the USSR was the inexorable product of the October Revolution. He demonstrates that there existed a strong movement led by Leon Trotsky which offered a realistic alternative to Stalinism and that a struggle against this movement was the primary function of the Stalinist terror.
