UMITSUBAME No.1326/May.6
"UMITSUBAME" that means storm petrel in Japanese, is the MCG newspaper published
every two weeks..

 In front of the National Diet (Nov.1959)

lenin's "own words"
For raising trotskyism!

No.1326/May.6, 2018
The reconcilliation between North and South Korea, and the nuclear disarmament
-- How does it progresse, and how is it settled?

 The reconcilliation mood between North and South Korea increased, and a summit meeting was held, and Kim Jong-un expressed his position to "accept nuclear disarmament if the system is secured". The passage of such history means that an approach and the unification of the nation of North and South Korea in one hand, and the nuclear disarmament of North Korea in the other. In other words, it is the problem how they would do with the nuclear weapon, and whether is the unification in what kind of system.
[Editorial]: Kozu, the Chairman of Japan Trade Union Confederation, and politics -- Do not attribute to the Democratic Progressive Party's politicians.
The opposition parties cannot fight against the revision of the Constitution maneuver. -- "Propose" the abolition of Emperor system of Japan in the Diet.
2018 May Day reports

No.1325/April.22, 2018If Abe got someshing, it's negligible.
-- The intention of Trump goes unchallenged.

 The summit between Trump and Abe has been over. It was a talk in which both of them were aware of the presevation and prolongation of their own government, but it's certain that Trump has got more, and Abe got few. Abe bet a breakthrough of the the abduction problem's solution on persuasion of Sei Kin by Trump, and some progress may be possible on that problem. However, Abe could get few in other areas that were more important than that. It was a necessary result of "weakness" of Abe. Abe has own country first policy, but Trump also has the same -- or stronger -- principle, and Abe did not understand its meaning.
[Editorial]: The opposition party joint struggle is a route to defeat. -- The opposition party should fight independently by itself.
It is no use crying over spilt milk. -- The reunion illusion of the Democratic Party = Democratic Progressive Party

No.1324/April.8, 2018
Let's join in the 2019 Upper House election and fight out decidedly.
-- Aiming for the first member of the Workers' Party

  Readers of the "Petrel" all over the nation!
 The Workers' Party aiming for liberation of labor held a emergency general meeting in the end of March and decided to participate in the 2019 Upper House election by fielding ten candidates as a recognised political body and to fight out for the first seat. This decision corrected the policy to gain seat acquisition in the Upper House election in 2022 years after three phases of fights of hop, step, jump in the general meeting last April. We accelerate "a decisive battle" for seat acquisition three years based on the generalization of fight (fight of the 11th electoral district of Kanagawa) of the last year's general election.
[Editorial]: A straying revision maneuver of the Constitution of Abe -- The "final" constitution draft of the LDP
The Emperor should have a sense of shame.
-- Which mask do you wear in going to Okinawa?
The trade war between U.S. and China started. -- The impudent American first principles of Trump

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!
