Exactly twelve months ago, in an article entitled: 2011: - Optimism or pessimism? I wrote the following: "The first effect of the crisis was one of shock, not only for the bourgeois but also for the workers. There was a tendency to cling to jobs and accept cuts in the short term, especially as the union leaders offer no alternative. But this will be replaced by a general mood of anger and bitterness, which will sooner or later begin to affect the mass organisations of the working class."

Thatcher Iron lady meryl streep-thMargaret Thatcher is a hate figure for millions in Britain who suffered under 13 years of her rule. We, who opposed Thatcherism to the bitter end, will never forget the mass unemployment, the cuts, wholesale privatisation and the attacks on the trade unions as well as our democratic rights. Those who fought back were regarded by Thatcher as "the enemy within," a term she used against the National Union of Mineworkers, as they fought for their communities and their jobs. Thatcher represented capitalism 'red in tooth and claw' and we will not forget it.

Nuevamente la atención del mundo esta centrada en Corea del Norte. Esta vez, no se debe a nuevos ensayos nucleares, a la agitación imperialista, o a un enfrentamiento militar con Corea del Sur a lo largo de la frontera más militarizada del mundo. Esta vez, la razón es potencialmente más explosiva: la muerte de Kim Jong-Il.

Είναι δύσκολο να πιστέψει κανείς ότι σε 10 μόνο χρόνια θα κλείσουν τα 100 χρόνια του Μανιφέστου του Κομμουνιστικού Κόμματος. Αυτή η μπροσούρα, που δείχνει το μεγαλύτερο πνεύμα στην παγκόσμια φιλολογία, μας εκπλήσσει ακόμα και σήμερα με την επικαιρότητά-της. Τα πιο σημαντικά τμήματά-της φαίνονται σαν να γράφτηκαν χτες. Βέβαια, οι νεαροί συγγραφείς-της (ο Μαρξ είταν 29 χρονών και ο Έγκελς 27) μπορούσαν να δουν το μέλλον ευρύτερα από οποιονδήποτε προκάτοχό-τους και ίσως κι από οποιονδήποτε μεταγενέστερο.
