Imperialist Globalization 

Additions to the Program Articles

*Today is a time characterized by the international monopolies' and the biggest ones of those, world monopolies' setting up full hegemony on production, trade and capital export over the integrated world market; where the production process itself has also globalised, the speculative capital has gained a significant position within the entire capital movement, the international monopolies and imperialist states conduct a violent rivalry and wage struggle for re-division of the world on the basis of this rivalry, and where the neocolonialism was transformed into a heavier form of yoke, financial-economic colonialism. Today, with all these distinctive characteristics, the world capitalism has reached a new stage of imperialism: the stage of imperialist globalization.
*While the revolution could outburst in the weakest link or links of the imperialist chain; the level of imperialist capitalism today has also created the opportunities for regional revolution. The same situation matures the objective conditions of each country's revolutions' turning into regional revolutions and the waves of world revolution; it strengthens the possibility of revolutions to trigger each other in many countries.
*In the stage of imperialist globalisation, the ranks of proletariat have broadened; the material basis of an international identity has become stronger; the difference between the societal positions of manual and mental labour has shrunk; the proletariat, and non-proletarian oppressed and exploited labourer sections came closer to each other, the possibility for working class to unify the other oppressed around its own program has grown stronger.
Definition and Evaluations
1)The world economy that was formed of single country markets in the first half of the 20th century is today integrated under the hegemony of international monopolies. This situation paves the way for hegemonic fight upon the world market, the centralization of capital on enormous levels and the setting up of regional blocks.
2)The organization of production worldwide at the imperialist globalisation era has also socialised the labour on international level. Thus, all the basic contradictions of capitalist mode of production have been internationalised and became the worldwide problems.
3)The international monopolies had existed in the first half of 20th Century too, but they were not in the determining positions on single countries' and world economy. Today, however, the largest ones of the international monopolies have turned into a world monopoly, and form the base of the world economy.
4)In our day, the superiority of the financial capital over the industrial capital has turned into a definite hegemony, as a result of this, the investments on financial and speculative capital have been proportionately widened, the speculative capital movement turned into a characteristic property of the financial capital.
5)In the imperialist globalization stage, where single national markets left their places to an integrated world market, the rivalry in the market gradually became tense among the 200 world monopolies, the state apparatus is given at the service of world monopolies, and where the international bourgeois laws are regulated in accordance to that, both the relations between imperialist countries and the relations of financial-economical colonial countries with the imperialist countries are now shaped under the conditions of the reality of the integrated world market.
6)In the imperialist globalization stage, the advance of internationalization of production and economic integration tendency narrows the material grounds for nation-state. The economic integration process and internalization, in fact, do not comply with national borders, this rather brings the mutual "dependence" of all national economies and necessitates the forms of "international state" that could plan together the internationalized social production and abolishes the obstacles ahead of the development of productive forces.
However, the private character of the ownership of capital and production makes inevitable for international monopolies to strengthen politically and militarily all over the world the nation-states that they were born, let alone to protect them. The guarding of the private property regime conditions the strengthening of the bourgeois nation-state that internally protects the hegemony of bourgeoisies against the working class, and the strengthening of imperialist nation-states politically and militarily for the worldwide hegemony and rivalry of international monopolies.
The central quarter, the central base of every international monopoly and world monopoly is its own country which the monopoly is originated from. The strong rivalry between the international monopolies is the main dynamic of war and alliance policies of the capitalist states.
7)Under the imperialist globalization conditions, the anti-imperialist struggle and anti-capitalist struggle, the democratic and socialist tasks of the proletariat are more interlinked. The material conditions are matured for democratic revolutions to turn rapidly into socialist revolutions.
The worldwide organization of the production and socialization of the productive forces on the world scale, and on the contrary, the concentration of the private ownership of the means of production in the hands of a handful of world monopoly deepen the inequality between classes, sharpen the contradictions among labour and capital, state and people all over the world. This same conditions make the material technical base favourable for socialism, in other words, the conditions for social revolution around the world.
8)The world economic crisis in 2007-2008 is the strong revelation of the capitalism's existential crisis. The capital's loss of skills to develop productive forces, and therefore the situation, which finds its correspondence in the dissolution of its historical base to exist, reflects the economical, political and ideological crisis of the bourgeois relations of production.
The existential crisis of capitalism shows that the social form based on the capitalist production has reached a point where it cannot be sustained any more, the capitalism has historically outdated and it is an obligation to scratch out the burden on the shoulders of humanity through socialist revolutions under the leadership of the proletariat; if this is not succeeded, the bourgeois will imprison the working class and the oppressed to much more barbaric and dishonourable conditions.
9)Under these conditions, it is important to upraise the slogan "all the workers and oppressed of the world, unite!" in order to realize the opportunities of uniting other oppressed and exploited sections around the leadership of the working class.
