Guernica: Picasso’s depiction of the 1937 Nazi German bombing of the Basque town of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War. Such horrors & savageries have become the gestalt of our times, directly linked in a historic continuum to WWI & WWI which were not fought about democracy or against fascism but about US & European competition over colonialism plunder. Every single war, occupation, genocide today is tied to that festering legacy. The historic mission of our generations is to confront that legacy–being fought on the front lines by Palestinians, Kashmiris, Syrians, Iraqis, Somalians, Yemenis, Rohingya, Libyans, Blacks, & so many other oppressed peoples–& end decisively, once & for all, the white supremacy, violence, & militarism that are the essence of that legacy.
