Video: Communist Opposes Gun Control

Jones, Hitler, & Gun Control

By Caleb T. Maupin

Alex Jones, the ultra-right-wing radio host, has made a name for himself in recent weeks by rabidly denouncing proposed gun control legislation. He yelled at CNN interviewer Piers Morgan, but in his tirade Jones stated many historical inaccuracies.

For example, he claimed that socialist countries like the former Soviet Union outlawed guns. In reality, hunting was a national past time in the former USSR and many people owned firearms. In modern socialist Cuba many people are armed.

Another false statement made by Jones is that “Hitler outlawed guns.” A closer look at the history of Germany in the 1920s and 30s shows not only the inaccuracy of this statement, but a clear historical lesson about the nature of the capitalist state that is highly relevant in the current debate about gun control in the aftermath of the horrendous shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

In the 1920s and 30s, there was extreme poverty in Germany after it lost World War I, and it was forced to pay massive reparations to Britain and France. German workers were unemployed and suffering immensely, even before the beginning of the Great Depression in 1929.

The Achievements of Korean Socialism

By  Caleb T. Maupin

RT Interview: Time Magazine & North Korea

Venezuela and the Struggle for Socialism

This is a talk by Berta Joubert-Ceci of the Philadelphia branch of Workers World Party to the November WWP National Conference.

I want to share some thoughts about Venezuela.

Since Hugo Chávez took office as president in 1999, Venezuela has been a ray of hope for millions of people around the world, but more so for the people in Latin America. The Bolivarian Revolution sparked a new wave of revolutionary struggles all around the region. Each process is different in every country, but they are tied to each other not only by their geographical situation, but by their aims to lift the masses of people out of poverty, rely less on the U.S., and very important, to integrate the region. And now, to follow a socialist path.
