Just stating again for the record: solidarity with those on the front lines of oppression is not a matter of noblesse oblige. It isn’t even just a matter of ‘an injury to one is an injury to all’ in any sentimental sense. It’s a matter of the survival of the whole human race before war, occupation, genocide take down all of us together. Militarism doesn’t just slaughter millions of people in the besieged countries; it rots the very souls of the aggressing countries, produces psycho-killers, & necessitates greater repression, impoverishment, misery. That’s why no human being is alien to us.
