Abstract

The essay is a short response to Charles Post’s reflections on my critique of his work on the theory of the labour aristocracy, challenging Post’s denial of the existence of imperialism and its transformation of the global class structure over time and insisting upon the correctness of the idea that workers in the global North constitute a labour aristocracy and a bulwark of global capitalist rule.
