Exploitative and Depredatory Nature of Capital Will Never Change: Rodong Sinmun
Pyongyang, May 1 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun on Tuesday in an article says that the exploitative and depredatory nature of capital will never change.
The 21st century is the era of IT industry, the article says, and goes on:
In this era the capitalists' exploitation of the working people is committed in more concealed way.
In the era of machine manufacture industry, the capitalists produced material wealth and squeezed profits through the physical labor of the working people who used labor means.
But today they produce and increase profits by using information equipment including computers without the participation by lots of men's labor.
The exploitation of the working people by the capitalists in the era of IT industry has become more severe.
The capitalists have strengthened the exploitation of the working people by means of lowering their wages engaged in intelligent labor.
In the era, the living conditions of the working masses have become further worsened, far from being improved.
The development of the IT industry further worsens the crisis of joblessness, malignant ills of the capitalist society, first of all.
Next, the development of the IT industry widens the gap between the rich and the poor.
Latest science and technology can neither remove the inequality between the capitalist class and the working masses nor the ensuing social and class contradiction and conflict.
It is the inevitability of the development of history that capitalism is on the way of self-destruction and going downhill, not prosperity. -0-
