Here's something I've been thinking about lately… tell me what you think
The US was the breeding ground of Capitalism, and it's now the strongest link in the Chain. For the past century, the US has been desperately crushing any state where the link breaks— its imperialism has been instrumental in sustaining global Capitalism.
The US is so deeply entrenched in this system that it would be impossible to tear it from Capitalism, and is far too militarized for revolution to be a feasible means of doing it. Leftists in the US can't hope to transition it to Socialism. It's not in the cards, and won't be in the cards until it's the last one in the deck. The only good praxis they can make is:
- Spreading leftist ideas
- Not as a means of establishing a leftist state, but as a means of curating sympathy for leftist states
- Fighting imperialist actions, sentiments, and tendencies
If there's any hope of establishing a modern Socialist state, the US must stay the fuck out. The US left's most pressing obligation is to destroy imperialist sentiment and prevent the US from acting on them through force or through the system itself. That's the only useful thing they can do.
Let the chain break where it will.
