The entire western world's sworn enemy was USSR and its Marxist communist ideology.There was cold war between USA and USSR for more than four decades[1946 to 1991]. The world was divided into capitalist block and socialist blocks before dramatic collapse of USSR and eventually got disintegrated into pieces,which lead to collapse of communist regimes in eastern European countries and surprisingly East and West Germany got united after dismantling of Berlin wall.
What made people angry and restless?
The accumulation of unjust profits by corporates,unjust financial system or unregulated financial system or unproductive expenditure by the state and sheer neglect of working classes,where as,their demands are reasonable ,just and simple,they are only demanding affordable housing ,affordable healthcare and over all,the decent standard of living to ensure that children don't suffer,they don't have unreasonable demands like luxury villas in moon or Hawaiian island holiday package as 'Leave travel package'. [LTC]. They are demanding basic amenities ,as cost of living rising at alarming levels due to high inflation and world economic crises.
The insecurity creeping in people's mindset:
The labour unrest is reported in many countries due to world economic and debt crises.Another issue is rising unemployment rates in the developed countries and developing countries,which makes people uncomfortable and restless,resulting mass people's resistant movement.There was riots in London by organised by the unemployed youth,which reminds West Indian British labour unrest of 1934–1939 ,which begin after world war -II,which highlighted income inequalities in Britain.Most communist believe that,If present unrest continue,it may lead to Bolshevism.
The hundreds of Indian expatriates are expected to return home ,in next two years from USA and other countries ,due to uncertain economic conditions,adding to unemployed population,where as India is already facing labour unrest and huge educated unemployment,recently,there was huge labour strike in Maruthi Suzuki Ltd,Hyundai,MRF,Toyota,Honda and Nokia,due to ineffective labour dispute resolution.
There was labour unrest in some of the industrial areas of Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu,which speaks resurgence of Trade Unionism,pushing case for greater role of workers in the management,protagonist of free market are worried about new resurgence of trade union,which will hamper investment climate.The fact of the matter is there is a need to address the issue of fair wages,job security and social security measures,which will eventaully reduce labour unrest.It is better for people,who often shed crocodile tears about labour unrest is hurting investment climate, should make an effort to understand the labour point of view and their woes.
There will be no organisation with out work force and with out orgaonsation,there can't be work force,both are indispensable in world,when organisation earn profits,workers should be given due share ,valuing their commitment and hard work.
The Human problems can be solved with humanitarian approach and sensitive mindset,no authoritarian state can survive by creating fear and in security in the work force.
It is better to strive for equitable society by removing income inequalities by making corporates accountable to stringent labour laws and social security measures and remove social inequalities by enforcing heavy taxation on ultra-rich people.
