(en) France, Manifesto of the Union Communist Libertaire UCL - A vital anticapitalism (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Mon, 5 Aug 2019 08:37:17 +0300

We are resolutely anti-capitalist. We do not oppose only the abuses of the system that dominates the world today. We are radically opposed to its foundations: the exploitation of human labor for the benefit of ruling and privileged minorities ; the exploitation of natural resources leading to their destruction ; unequal global development and imperialism ; the alienation of the individual ; state and employer domination over society. ---- Anticapitalist, we reject the race for profits, the logic of enterprise, the model of productivist development, hierarchy and social inequalities, which are the creeds of a society dominated by the capitalist mode of production. ---- We are anti-capitalist for social reasons, by our engagement in the class struggle. We are so for ethical reasons, by our attachment to egalitarian values, libertarians, social justice and respect for the specificities of each individual. We are also for vital reasons, since capitalism is based on an ever-increasing overexploitation of environmental resources that threatens the survival of humanity.

There is no capitalism "with a human face"
We are opposed to capitalism regardless of the historical form in which it occurs: liberal capitalism or state capitalism. We are opposed to liberal capitalism, based on an "autonomous" regulation of the market, which claims to be "democratic". It is based on an essentially undemocratic mode of production and is entirely geared towards achieving the profits of the ruling classes.

We are opposed to state capitalism, even when it claims to be "socialist" or even "communist". It is based on a mode of exploitation and tyrannical domination of the workers, and on the authoritarian determination of the market, in favor of a privileged and all-powerful class. These two faces of capitalism create a bureaucratic and technocratic structure. We therefore support neither a partial or total state of liberal capitalism, nor a partial or total privatization of state capitalism. Whether in the public or the private sector, the rule that capitalism operates has always been the collectivization of losses and the privatization of profits.

"Protectionism" and "free trade," national capitalism and global capitalism are two sides of the same coin. At the mercy of their interests, the possessing classes plead for one or the other. We must not look for ideological coherence. Their only dogma is that of private ownership of the means of production and distribution. Everything else is adaptable to the circumstances.

Our anticapitalism is part of daily struggles and the class struggle to achieve self-management and libertarian socialism.
