"Reflecting on the by-elections of the five members of the House of Representatives, House of Councilors and the unified local elections"
The Great Defeat of the Japan Communist Party(JCP) and the Breakthrough of the Nippon Ishin (Japan Innovation Party, JIP)
---We need a class struggle of the working people.

In April, by-elections of the House of Representatives, House of Councilors and the unified local elections were held.
As a result, the Liberal Democrats narrowly won four in five by-elections for the House of Representatives, while the JIP won a seat in the Wakayama 1st district of the House of Representatives and gained a significant number of seats in local elections.
On the other hand, the JCP suffered a significant decline in seats in the local elections, and the number of members of The Constitutional Democratic Party was sluggish.

No.1449/Apr./23/ 2023

Fight back against the anti-workers party, Nippon Ishim (Japan Innovation Party, JIP) that spur illusions and steal votes!

The first half of the unified local elections was held on April 9. In this election, JIP continued to win the governor of Osaka Prefecture and the mayor of Osaka City and gained a majority not only in the Osaka Prefectural Assembly but also in the Osaka City Assembly, which had previously had less than a majority. In the governor election of Nara Prefecture, a JIP’s approved candidate also got elected. With this momentum, the JIP is planning to expand its anti-worker politics throughout the country.

No.1447/Mar./26/ 2023

The lowly nature is exposed, and the government is panicked.
…The Abe faction spearheaded the reform of the Broadcasting Law

  On March 2, an administrative document in which the Abe clique (the Emperor System Nationalists) pressured the broadcast program to make a program that was convenient for them became public.
This administrative document written by a bureaucrat of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications recorded how YOSUKE ISOZAKI, an advisor to the prime minister, worked with Abe's approval to lobby Minister TAKAICHI to change the interpretation of the Broadcasting Law.
Government-Labor-Management Meetings pretend to be on the side of workers.
But a principle of class cooperation has no future for workers.

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!
