Radio show: fixed elections and the rule of capital over labor

“The whole electoral process is a means of validating the rule of capital over labor…. The needs of the (capitalist) system and the needs of life on this planet, including human life, stand at complete odds with each other.”

That was the main point of this radio interview on “fixed” elections. Yes, they’re fixed — fixed by big business to try to get their rule validated. Not that the workers’ movement can ignore the elections, but by the same token we should have no illusions in capitalist democracy.

Listen to the show here, starting at 67:00 minutes in.
