The tasks ahead – March 2009 interview by Debate Socialista (Brazil)

The present crisis of the capitalist world is not just a cyclical one, but a comprehensive structural crisis of the system signing that the capital system has reached its absolute boundaries. As a result on the long run not only attempts to strengthen state regulation but also system stabilisation efforts by increasing oppression will be ineffective. This situation opens a new historic opportunity to create a new order based on solidarity and full social control of production. However to realise this theoretical opportunity, the defensive 20th century attitude of interest protection has to be given up, and strategic goals and the ways of fight of the working class should be profoundly rethought, as well as the relationship between its political and economy organisations.
