DAVID ROVICS—Standing on the precipice we’re all standing on right now here in the USA, my mind delivers me historical parallels, as a sort of desperate measure, trying to make sense of it all. I’m not sure how relevant any of them are, but any of them might be. There are too many different factors that go into creating the future. But at least in retrospect, some things seem clear. Retrospect is good like that. The massacres at Kent State and Jackson State, along with so many more killings by the authorities of Black radicals especially, in no small part gave rise to networks such as the short-lived Black Liberation Army and the Weathermen. Developments like these tend to reinforce the maxim that violence is made inevitable through the suppression of more peaceful means.

Jimmy Dore: Blue-Check HOLLYWOOD Won’t Push BIDEN To Help People! (And why Democrats stink and are no alternative to the GOP)
Jimmy Dore analyses the unsurprising hypocrisy and cluelessness of Hollywood celebs, as they browbeat everyone to vote for Biden. Meanwhile, they keep everyone from pressing popular needs mirroring desperately needed measures: like Medicare for All, infrastructural reconstruction programs, a generous UBI, extensive and well-funded environmental protection programs, quick shift to non-hydrocarbon fuels, and much more.

PATRICE GREANVILLE—The shameful role of the media whores who totally underreported or actively supported this war cannot be emphasized often enough. As a result most Americans still have a dense fog of confusion in their minds about the empire’s adventures in Indochina: how it started, what purposes it served, and what lessons it should have taught us, but didn’t. I’m talking here about moral lessons. Today after almost half a century since the end of this atrocity, the same ruling elites are actively involved not just in pursuing several more criminal wars with no end in sight, but eagerly plotting and provoking not just more conventional wars, but possibly the biggest chestnut of them all, the chestnut that will kill us all: a nuclear war with China or Russia or probably both.

AARON MATE—So, when we think about Stokely, Stokely is really following SNCC’s lead, and after he comes out for black power on June 16, 1966, he is touring and crisscrossing the country throughout the year, talking about the Vietnam War. He says that it’s a racist war, it’s an imperialist war. Stokely is the person who has already traveled to Puerto Rico, he’s traveled to all these different places in solidarity, he had spoken out against the Vietnam War even before he becomes SNCC chairman, he pushed back against the use of napalm in Vietnam, which was a chemical agent that was burning women and children and the elderly and young people, and he said that the war was an immoral war on Meet The Press. So, what’s interesting about Stokely is that Stokely is the person whose anti-war activism is going to influence Martin Luther King Jr., because he’s listening.
