The Party – the working class movement – is always right

Green (Living) Review

Basically the meaning is – the true one – that the movement, the party, is always right to fight against capitalism and imperialism, against injustices and for the right of the proletariat. That does not, however, mean that the movement, the party, can do no wrong on other levels; far from it.

Green (Living) Review

The right to repair movement is an effort to loosen laws to allow consumers to be able to fix technology without sending it back to the original manufacturer.
