The failure of the private examination utilization
-- The adhesion between the Abe Administration and the private education capital

@As a trigger of "a gaffe" of Hagiuda, the English private enterprise examination utilization problem became the suspension after all. A come-on of "education reform", which began by forcible "political initiative" of the Abe Administration, namely the policy using English private proficiency test for the university entrance exam, closed a curtain suddenly again by "political leadership" of the Abe government. What was the education reform that the Abe government had pushed forcibly for seven years? Who has the responsibility to youths who were made to run about in utter confusion by the politics of the Abe government which decayed by the hazardousness and confusion and such nonsense on earth? The responsibility of the Abe Administration is clear. And Akimoto, the villain who is the confidant of Abe was arrested for the bribery charge in the end of the year. The Abe Administration became an existence like a sepsis meat which gave off a bad smell now. We will reveal the essence of the English private enterprise examination, in other words, the true character of the politics of the Abe Administration, and we call a fight to defeat this government in the next year and are going to send this year's last "Petrel" to the hands of the readers.

A ringing funeral bell of the Japan Communist Party.
-- Do they say such as the revision of the basics of the program again !?

@The Japan Communist Party has also played a fuss about the revision of program and has begun a new, fussy tactic to justify its opportunism and reformism, and slavery to capitalism and capital rule. In addition, with the publication of a revised version of gthe Capitalh led by the JCP, they have interpreted arbitrarily, revised from a distorted viewpoint, rewrote Marxism and gthe Capitalh, the actual history and the reality of the world in order to adapt to their opportunistic lines, too. So they are indulging in another crime of historical revisionism teamed up with the Abe administration (reactionary forces, nationalist forces).
[Editorial]: The Japan-US trade agreement -- The protectionism of JCP is powerless.
[Book review]: Revealing the capitalism of Soviet Union and China
-- Hayashi Hayashi, gthe 'Socialism' of illusionh

No.1366/Dec.1, 2019
The opposition party joint struggle in an extremely precarious position
-- The truth that the Kochi local elections teach

@The parties of the opposition party joint struggle group united to clarify the achievement of the opposition party joint struggle, and the Kochi governor's race that was fought under the communist candidate and the election for Mayor Kochi turned out contrastive result. For those people that believe Kochi is the most promising electoral district for the Japan Communist Party(JCP), the result was definitely serious defeat. Because in the governor's race where all parties of the opposition party joint struggle group united and fought, but their candidate was defeated by LDP & Komeitou's candidate with 110,000 to 170,000, while at the sametime the opposition party side won a clear-cut victory with 55,000 to 31,000 in the election for Mayor Kochi where FDP & koumeitou' s candidate and the candidate supported by the Constitutional Democaratic Party & the National Democratic Party confronted. The results mean that 2 parties of the former Democratic Party = the Democratic Progressive Party could win, but the opposition party joint struggle group where the Japan Communist Party joined was defeated; This result is seriously unwell for the JCP.
We start "partyfellow" system -- Please provide both psychological and material support to the Workers Pary!
[Editorial]: A fight of the Hong Kong people went a single step. -- However, the power still is under the Chinese Communist Party.
Thinking about the issue of the girl statue display of the Aichi Triennale 2019 -- The dangerous fascist sign which forces freedom out

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!
