 A letters from our reader

No.1461/ Oct./ 22/ 2023 

 Stop the blockade and invasion of Gaza! 
---The root of terrorism is discrimination and oppression against Palestinians. 

 Hamas, which controls the Palestinian territories and Gaza, launched a surprise attack on Israel. In response, the Israeli government has declared a full-scale "state of war" against Hamas, mobilized 100,000 troops, and is trying to force a military invasion against Gaza. 
 The Israeli government condemns Hamas' military attacks as terrorism and justifies the military invasion, but it has produced by the discrimination and oppression of Palestinians. (Written as of the 18th December) 

 The situation of occupational accidents in Japan capitalism 
---Occupational accident casualties are on the rise.

--- The government's measures to address the "revenue barrier".

 Prime minister Kishida revealed that as one of the government's policies, the government will tackle to correct the "annual income barrier" problem in the name of "creating a society where men and women can work as desired."

 The mayor of Higashiosaka changing his saddle to the Japan Innovation Party.
--- Exposing the corruption of the "Second Liberal Democratic Party".

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!
