The Polemicist: The Siege of Venezuela and The Travails of Empire
Here’s the bullet-point version:
- It’s imperialism.
- It’s American imperialism, a bipartisan national project.
- American imperialism is the global management of capitalist class power.
- It’s a binary situation in which one side or the other will win via the use and threat of armed force.
- It’s trouble for Venezuela and for imperialism.
- There’s no such thing as Progressive Except Imperialism.
Here’s the long rant:
The United States government’s new offensive against Venezuela is an act of naked imperialism.
