No.1425/April.24, 2022
Shi-i, the chairperson of the Japan Communist Party advocating "The Self-Defense Forces utilization"
-- Does the "aggression of the imminence injustice" assume China and Russia?

Shi-i, the chairperson of the Japan Communist Party(JCP) said, "We don't permit the Article 9 destruction and the revision of the Constitution on the pretext of Ukrainian aggression" in the surge of the national defense discussion by the invasion in Ukraine. However, impudently, he emphasizes "the utilization of the Self-Defense Forces", taking advantage of the announcement of the book, "the new platform classroom" to publicize "the value of the JCP" and his remarks calls a discussion. We didn't get the book at the point in time because Shi-i sells the book hard, or by anothe reason before writing this article, but we will confirm reactionary characteristics of the philistine standpoint of the Japan Communist Party platform.
The nationalistic maneuver by the revision group of the Constitution

The big companies plotting the expansion of the job type employment

It has been about a month since Russia invaded Ukraine. The Ukrainian government has made it clear that it will cease its NATO membership and allow "neutralization," and "ceasefire negotiations" between the two countries have been taking place. However, Russia continues to carry out barbaric acts of aggression, such as indiscriminate extermination attacks, while claiming to continue negotiations toward a "ceasefire".
Expansion of arms against Russia

Inflationary bombshell
-- Unlimited government bond purchases with interest rate at limit
Sinking Times.

Break "the managed annual spring offensive"!
-- Workers' original fight is important.

In the annual spring offensive, intensive answers of big companies were announced on March 16. According to the news, it is said that the big companies such as electric equipment, car or heavy industries responsed by " full amount answers" more than base up (raise of the base salary) of 0-1000 yen in the last year. In contrast, the union leader of the metal union council said that there was "a good response" at a press conference. But can the worker be really satisfied with this "full amount answer?" May it be said that the solidarity of the workers was strengthened?
The management-labor cooperation in Toyota deepening more
-- From "a labor and management discussion" to "a labor and management business meeting"!
Following the bourgeois order
-- The Japan Communist Party seeking the peace by the United Nations Charter and The Constitution Article 9
The crisis of the stagflation is possible to occur in Japan.

Japanese Marxist Hayashi Hiroyoshi introduces the fundamental concepts of Marx's economic theory, particularly the "labor theory of value" presented at the beginning of Capital.

Book Description

Karl Marx's ideas have been declared "dead" on more than one occasion, only to emerge with new relevance a few years later. But the "collapse of communism" seemed to be the final nail in his coffin. The end of history had been reached, we were told, and poor old Karl was wrong. - Or was he?

In Marx's Labor Theory of Value: A Defense, Hayashi Hiroyoshi argues that Marx will continue to be relevant as long as capitalism continues to exist. This is simply because no one grasped the nature of capitalism on a more profound level than Marx did. Hayashi presents the most fundamental aspects of Marxist economic thought, centering on the discussion of the commodity at the beginning of Capital. Also included are detailed examinations of Adam Smith's theory of value and the concepts of ground - rent, credit, and productive labor. Hayashi shows that Marx's labor theory of value is the key not only to understanding capitalism but also for grasping the essential characteristics of socialism. And socialism - as the real solution to the contradictions of capitalism - turns out to have little in common with the recently deceased "communist" states.

Now that history has resumed - after its brief "hiatus" - it's time to return to Marx!
