Good morning, comrades.

Abby Martin really just skims the surface here, but it’s enough to make the point: the United States government has always been in the business of crushing leftism, here and abroad, and never hesitates to use violence to do so. And we live in an age of unprecedented mass surveillance and militarized police: does anyone think these things would not be deployed to maintain the “social order,” i.e. White supremacist imperialist oligarchy?

Meanwhile, USians remain one of the most indoctrinated, misinformed and propagandized populations in the world. We live under the illusion of democracy—a concept diametrically opposed to the interests of elites and the institutions and power structures from which they benefit so very, very much.
