CHRIS HEDGES—Liberals like Chris Hedges are almost always extremely efficient and eloquent in their diagnoses of what ails society. In this talk, Hedges provides, for example, a good anatomy of what constitutes the main working parts of the imperialist organism, currently managed by Joe Biden (the collective Biden, not the real, physical Biden). This, Hedges insists, is just an army of professional bureaucrats dedicated to the design and implementation of policies conducive to the perpetuation of a global, deeply undemocratic oligarchic cabal, with HQ in Washington. The problem with Chris is that his analysis does not advance much in the manner of solutions, aside from recommending extra-electoral mass mobilizations (something we certainly agree with). And Chris’s anti-communism and anti-Sovietism do not help matters much, either.

How much of an imbecile do you have to be to defend imperial wars in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, etc., as if they were wars waged in the interest of the American people? How do you begin to sort out the sheer ignorance and idiocy packed in that position? Yet here we have “patriotic” Democrats doing exactly that. And black, too. Which makes the insult even worse. Jimmy Dore is simply speechless.

RUSSELL BENTLEY—There are laws in Europe today that imprison people for questioning the Holocaust and the genocide of 6 million Jews under the German nazis, but there is no law there against disputing or disparaging the sacrifice of 27 million Soviet citizens. US and British hypocrites and revisionists make much of the Non-Aggression Pact signed between Molotov and Ribbentrop at the end of August 1939, conveniently forgetting the capitulation to nazi aggression in the Munich Pact peace treaty signed by Britain, France and Germany almost a full year earlier in September 1938. And it should never be forgotten that it was US and UK oligarchs, along with German corporate leaders, who gave the financial and political backing that brought Hitler and the nazis to power in the first place, beginning in the early 1930’s.

TyT’s Ana Kasparian would like the world to believe that she and Cenk Uygur are really serious and compassionate journalists, instead of imperialist shills, reminds us Jimmy Dore. Meanwhile Kasparian’s sordid McCarthyite tactics and eager participation, along with Uygur, in the imperialist disinformation campaign to destroy Syria’s independence, speak volumes for her personal integrity. Watching The Young Turks these days, let alone paying attention to what they have to say, should be proof of mental deficiency or critical information deficits, or both.

Marxism is a scientific type of Socialism and science learns from its mistakes. Therefore it’s logical and positive to engage in criticism and self-criticism and to keep in mind that the great socialist and progressive thinkers who came before us didn’t have the luxury of following any pre-existing model of socialism. They erred more often than not due to the fact that they were pioneers in uncharted territory. It shouldn’t surprise us they made mistakes but neither should we exaggerate those mistakes or use them to diminish their great successes and achievements. It is easier for us to see farther for we are standing on the shoulders of giants.
