Eygptian Coup – Divide and Rule Tactics by Military and Capitalists

While calling for unity and reconciliation General al-Sisi and the new civilian appointees have staged two massacres of unarmed Muslim Brotherhood supporters. The first killed 51 people by shooting from rooftops on demonstrators and during the second last week over 60 were shot by policemen – not a single one of whom was shot.

The unarmed demonstrators occupying two squares have been referred to as terrorists. Unfortunately, many of the original anti-Mubarak protesters have been willing to support the military in labelling their fellow citizens in this way.

The massacres have been accompanied by arrests and trumped up charges against Muslim Brotherhood leaders and activists. Clearly such tactics cannot create unity and reconciliation so the real objective must be to divide the population to preserve the role of the military and the old Mubarak establishment who jointly own and control most economic assets in Egypt.

Those who collaborate with these attacks on their fellow citizens are helping to restore the forces of repression removed with Mubarak.

In dealing with Covid19, Collectivism and Science have shown the way world wide; in Britain it's been Trade Unions and the NHS. Capitalism has shown itself unwilling & incapable of dealing with this crisis.

Neo-liberal managerial approach, from a neo-liberal political party. More evidence for ending the illusion that the Labour Party can ever be socialist which is based on a deeper illusion that the Parliamentary system and existing state can be reformed in the interests of workers.

The British Labour Party ending its own furlough scheme a month before the national scheme, and letting employees go, in the midst of a global pandemic and on the cusp of an economic depression - under new management indeed:

In the USA we see a contradiction between aspects of neoliberalism; i.e. between authoritarianism of the state repressive apparatus and liberal economics of cuts in public services. Both aspects end up damaging workers.
