Trump is wrong: the US will turn (neo-)socialist or cease to exist…

We have cautioned Sanders on the corruption of terminology. But obviously Trump is also wrong, perhaps: perhaps we will stop predicting for or against socialism and work to bring it about via revolution. A remarkable moment has arrived: Trump our leaders wishes to stage of fascist coup d’etat in public to overthrow the the legal government of Venezuela.
We should be wary of the imitation implies at our link but the point is clear, there is no inherent reason we should honor the criminal state of the US: we have real and far better grounds for the revolutionary overthrow of the US government. From there we can found real democracy in a socialist form. We have the right and the duty to do this because the result at a moment of climate crisis is almost inevitable, logically inevitable for sure. The capitalist alternative is completely insane; this president wishes to destroy the EPA, threaten the drinking water of all americans, egg on the destruction of the Amazon, the list of insanities is long. We have the right, and also the duty to overthrow this government. We may as well either adopt ecological socialism or tear the US to pieces: the world would be better off if the US were torn to pieces.

We have come to a strange and remarkable moment: the undermining of the US government in the process of fascist attempts to undermine the sovereignty of another nation: Venezuela, compelling an iro…

The endgame of Sanders’ phony ‘democratic socialist’ label (and presidential ambitions)…time for mouthwash…

We were pretty hard on Sanders but he done has something destructive and this Counterpunch article provides a very analysis. We may lose Maduro, but we have certainly lost Sanders.

Sanders has destroyed his own credibility as a ‘democratic socialist’, not once, but twice, first in his corrupted ‘socialist’ and ‘revolution’ jargon and now the destruction of even that corrupted jargon. This is no laughing matter: a lot of people just might get killed in Venezuela who really are democratic socialists and the creepy Sanders will disown them.

Time to stop referring to Sanders as a ‘democratic socialist’, it is a totally betrayed position and any real socialist should be wary of someone like Sanders: he will no support you on the left, to say the least….The real moment of failure was at the end of the presidential campaign when he caved to Clinton.

 Neo-socialism: the need for definitions…Noone on the left knows what they are talking about

Without commenting on this article as a whole we note our critique of stages of production theory from Marx and warn that no automatic transition to socialism will occur in some scheme of laws of the type proposed in marxism.
