The Islamic Republic and labor movement
The Islamic regime bears the burden of all these weaknesses, corruptions, high bankruptcies and collapses, but in addition to this Achilles heel of defeat, it still has important advantages and coercive power. This procedure should be seen as well, because everything is here that the final task is determined. Report of the Ministry of Cooperative, Labor and Social Welfare of the Islamic Republic, inserted in the media “Online Economy” , Annual income of each household from the first to fifth deciles in 2016 has been announced as 302 dollars – 703 dollars – 722 dollars – 833 dollars – 967 dollars , repectively. About 52 million working class population of Iran are in these 5 deciles. It´s quite clear that the first, second and third deciles, or the poorest deciles, accommodates the majority of the population and the remaining two deciles with a smaller number of workers. If we take this informative data with the necessary relative accuracy, the average annual income of each working-class household in the year (2016) has been less than 640 dollars. According to approximate statistics from the census, the average number of household members in these 5 deciles is about 4 people, if we divide the 52 million working-class population by 4, we reach 13 million households. Now, if we multiply this number by 640 dollars, the average wage that a household receives, so we come across a figure of about 8.32E9 . In addition to the above report, let´s take a look at the Islamic regime´s statistical yearbook. Anyone with a little knowledge of the day-to-day issues of the capitalist world, they know one thing more or less, that a very important part of the total capital value-added cycle in Iran in terms of accounting, balance sheet and international statistical calculations is surprisingly hidden in circuit of the mafia of the ruling gangs of the Islamic regime. Hundreds of giant industrial, commercial and financial trusts and holdings owned by the Revolutionary Guards, Astan Qods, Bonyad Mostaz-afan or the special institutions of clerical power that don´t give any reports of galactic items contributing to the surplus-values obtained from the exploitation of the working-class, to any state institution or authority. No conventional statistical and accounting entity know anything about which astronomical items of surplus-values are produced in these foundations and holdings, and where in the world are these surplus-values invested, and how it´s spent or what it´s spent on ? They don´t publiish any information in any public or official document. In such a situation and in the midst of such censorship, control and secrecy, it´s very ridiculous to take into account, for example, the contents of the Islamic regime´s statistical yearbook about the cycle of value-increasing of total capital in the country or the galactic huge surplus values produced by the working class. Despite all these, the same published yearbook by the Statistics Center says that in the year in question, the working masses have handed over 7.2E10 dollars in surplus value to the capitalist class and its government. This means that tens of millions of workers, from the many working men and women, to the housewives, old to young and working children, Iranian, Afghan in agriculture, livestock, forestry, fishery, mines and industry, water & electricity, oil and gas, civil construction, hospitals and schools, transportation, restaurant & hotel and civil service or anywhere else, day and night, have created surplus values or have prepared a highly huge amount of surplus values in the process of regularization to become additional capital. The figures say aloud that even under onslaught of the most devastating sanctions, in the case of the cost of forming a fixed part of capital, including stable and in circulation capital, that is the highest, even so, the Iranian working class that is enduring the most severe rate of exploitation, throughout this hell and horrors of capitalism, have increased the most profits and added into the total capital of the capitalist class by producing more and more surplus value. The report of the Development and Trade Organization states that in the same last year (2020) only the four sectors of petrochmicals, industry, mining and agriculture exported commodity about 35 billion dollars, and despite the growing trend of sanctions, they´ve still provided more than 20 billion dollars in fixed and working capital components from the global market and entered into the value-added cycle.
This is the exact message of the statistics : supporting for the survival of capitalism is the continued production of the above galactic surplus values and Islamic predatory fascism with the power of these surplus values is passing the ship of existence of capital and capitalism throughout the turbulent waves of danger. As long as tens of millions of satistied, subjugated and obedient workers in the most horrible working conditions and with a quasi-free workforce and on a impressive level completely free, are working for capital owners, are succumbing to hunger and poverty, homelessness and displacement, lack of drinking water, medicine and treatment, rags and living in empty graves and the ruins, satisfied with receiving one month´s salary from months of unpaid wages, hang their protests on the “law” and the capitalist government, considering the wage-earning´s foundation as their own destiny, avoiding unity and being in class trench, considering the capitalist as their own livelihood´s provider and being locked up and alone in the factory´s limitations, and a sanctuary place for bargaining with capitalists. In the meantime, teachers who proudly consider themselves to be belonged to Middle Class !!! and also they feel ashamed of being called workers and refusing class unity and companionship in any struggle. Instead of showing the power of class unity and shutting down the process of work they refer to the capitalist state to beg for some demands, and waiting for the miracle of saviors to appear. Let say so and that is that as long as the working masses are in such situation and do not raise the torch of an anti-wage class war, and they consider wage-earning in any form with any humiliation and in any amount as a blessing, and the peak of expectations. that´s right, as long as the door is turning on this heel, and the workers don´t think of promoting their movement to a class council power and against wage labor and capital, there´s no danger to capitalism. As long as the system of wage slavery persists, the predatory Islamic fascism of capital will do its utmost to make the government, the institutions of planning and order, the machine of violence, repression and exercise of its power.
Line by line the present article was an expression of the depravity, collapse, vulnerability and bankruptcy of the Islamic Republic, but the long chain of this despair and Achilles Heel will in NO WAY endanger the survival of Iranian capitalism and its ruling regime. Only the council-organized anti-capitalist movement of the working masses can sound this alarm of danger and make this sound as good new of establishment of a free, humane and non-exploitative society free from classes and state .
