Pushing arms buildup and the revision of the Constitution on the front
-- The Reactionary Upper House electoral pledge of the Kishida-led Liberal Democratic Party

After the Kishida Administration started, about a half year has passed and now it is conducting the first national election (the Upper House election). And the campaign pledge of the Liberal Democratic Party was announced on June 16. It's pledge pamphlet raises the "diplomacy & security" to the top and proposes "an early realization" of the constitution revision at the same time. It shows clearly that the Kishida Government prioritizes the arms buildup and the revision of the Constitution.

Just a few days ago (June 7), the Kishida administration approved "The Grand Design and Action Plan" at a cabinet meeting, which is intended to materialize the "New Capitalism" that Kishida has advocated since his run for the LDP presidency. However, the criticism of neo-liberalism and emphasis on distribution that he spoke of during his election campaign have been toned down, and the phrase "to increase in the labor participation rate" issued by the "Headquarters for the Realization of New Capitalism" is no longer included. What does the cabinet decision mean?

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!
