(45 comments) SHARE Sunday, June 30, 2019 Do Americans Know How Close They Are To Dictatorship?
A war against "terror" would be a war against an enemy that could never be decisively defeated, and that would be portrayed by the government as an overwhelming threat no matter what the reality was.

The political and media establishment throughout the capitalist world is only superficially opposed to the politics of fascistic politicians like Donald Trump and Jair Bolsonaro. Fascism, wherein corporations use the powers of the state to solidify their dominance, is what the capitalist class always turns to when its power is threatened.

sources of false hope let Western capitalist society continue to ignore the primary role that imperialism and militarism have in the climate crisis, to view the capitalist governments as legitimate, and to not try to break away from the philosophy of capitalism and endless growth.

"Stop being so greedy and so selfish. Realize there is more to the world than your big houses and fancy stores. People are starving and you worry about oil for your cars. Babies are dying of thirst and you search the fashion magazines for the latest styles...
SHARE Thursday, June 20, 2019 Why Leftists Should Leave The Democratic Socialists of America
People always have been the foolish victims of deception and self-deception in politics, and they always will be, until they have learned to seek out the interests of some class or other behind all moral, religious, political and social phrases, declarations and promises.

Over the span of only a few months, beginning roughly in January, the illegal U.S.-backed coup that the U.S. has attempted to activate through Juan Guaido and other elements of Venezuela's majority white and well-to-do right-wing opposition has gone from "serious threat" to "complete debacle".
SHARE Monday, September 23, 2019 The global socialist movement needs Juche
The task of building socialism is a science. To figure out how to construct their societies, the leaders of the existing socialist states have let their actions be guided by dialectical materialism, which is the study of objectively assessing one's material conditions so that the correct steps can be applied throughout a socialist project.

Anti-communism isn't about human rights, at least not human rights as a socialist would define them. Capitalists and imperialists vilify countries like China because they don't like that these countries have challenged the "rights" to exploit and oppress.
SHARE Sunday, August 4, 2019 America's Fascist Paramilitaries Are Rising
In a fascist shift, the state always forms paramilitary groups so that political violence can be carried out without the government being held accountable for it. It's predictable that when this process started to happen in America, our version of Hitler's Brownshirts and Mussolini's Blackshirts would originate from America's instruments of imperialism.
(2 comments) SHARE Thursday, September 12, 2019 The War on Immigrants and the Rejection of Reality
To maintain their worldview in the face of the catastrophes that capitalism and imperialism have created, the world's reactionaries have launched a war against the people who've been forced to migrate in the face of climate change and U.S.-created destabilization.
(3 comments) SHARE Wednesday, September 18, 2019 The Imperialist Motives Behind Sanders' Attacks on Chavismo
Many Americans have gravitated towards Sanders simply out of the desire to attain adequate living standards, which his policies would indeed create for them. What anti-imperialists must do is shatter the illusion that Sanders' agenda of bettering life for Americans equates to an agenda of bettering life for the world's colonized people, which Sanders has shown he doesn't want to do.
