Sanders and AOC flunk the venezuela question….

I have been consistently critical of Sanders’ ‘our revolution’ and ‘socialism’ and this article and the issue of venezuela shows the way that a basically reformist perspective gets entangled in contradictions. Instead of too much indignation we should feel sad that ‘socialism’ in quotation marks will have a hard time reaching lift off. The gesture ends up a plug for ‘revolutionary necessity’…
But in complete contradiction we can ‘support’ these kamikazes as ’tilling the soil’ for a vaunted ‘real socialism’ to come.

A renewed U.S. left is forging its own identity—and anti-imperialism needs to be front and center. Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders’ soft imperialism runs counter to the building of an internationalist left.
