Let me speak frankly: if you call yourself a socialist & have not spoken out about the blockade of Kashmir, the bombing of Idlib, the ongoing genocides against the Rohingya & Palestinians, or any of the US wars, you have made yourself completely irrelevant & ridiculous no matter how knowledgeable you are about historic & more often esoteric disputes. A socialist worthy of that name stands with the oppressed or they are “but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts & frets his hour upon the stage & then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound & fury, signifying nothing.”
