Alan Woods on world perspectives: crisis, class struggle and the tasks of the communists

At the end of January, around 100 comrades of the International Marxist Tendency (IMT) from across the globe came together for a leadership meeting that represented a decisive landmark in our history. Below, we publish a full transcript of the opening talk by Alan Woods on the turbulent world situation, and the urgent tasks that this places before communists. On Monday, we look forward to publishing a full report of the meeting, which will include important announcements of interest to revolutionary communists everywhere.

ماركس ضد مالتوس: اكتظاظ سكاني أم نظام مفلس؟

اكتسب القس توماس مالتوس سمعة سيئة في القرن التاسع عشر بصفته مدافعًا متحمسًا عن الفقر وعدم المساواة. كان يؤكد أن الفقراء ليسوا فقراء بسبب الاستغلال الرأسمالي أو الظلم، ولكن ببساطة لأن هناك عددًا كبيرًا جدًا منهم يتنافسون على الموارد المحدودة. واليوم، ما تزال أفكار مالتوس منتشرة بأشكال مختلفة، حتى أنها اكتسبت بعض التأثير في أوساط اليسار. في هذا المقال، يعتمد الرفيق آدم بوث على نقد ماركس وإنجلز لمالتوس لكشف الآثار الضارة والرجعية لهذه الأفكار اليوم.
