65% of the people who voted, were not in favour of limiting the salary of the top executives. The capitalist media had done its work. With fear and classic capitalist propaganda the capitalists claimed that a limit on salaries would ''destroy'' the economy. ''Salaries are not to be regulated by the government'' the capitalist media and their allies yelled. Most voters agreed with this and we revolutionary socialists understand why. Because Switzerland is a very capitalistic nation. Capitalism has been brainwashed into the Swiss since the confederation was founded. To limit capitalism means ''evil socialism'' and a ''inefficient economy''. This is what the right-wing told to the Swiss people!
Today the Swiss Party of Labour still stands in opposition to capitalism. But their Stalinist ideology has not changed. The party is still positive about the ''socialist'' experiments in the USSR. Also Cuba is fully supported by this communist party. Because they keep calling the USSR ''socialist'' and their uncritical support of Cuba, the Swiss Party of Labour remains weak and small. But this is not only their own fault. Most workers in Switzerland have a good income and have not yet felt the hardness of capitalism. Also capitalist propaganda has been very successful in keeping class struggle to a minimum. Revolutionary socialists say that although Switzerland has a direct democracy, this democracy is limited to politics only. The economy is owned and controlled by mighty Swiss corporations, who's greed is internationally known!
