It’s only an hour till 2019 ends & the new year begins. 2019 has been a hell of a year & 2020 won’t be any better unless we figure out the root of all this chaos & put up a sustained, coordinated international fight to end it. The future of humanity is at stake so we don’t have much of a choice. A big part of the problem is the political & theoretical bankruptcy of so-called leaders. Not government leaders whose corruption is a given but ideologues corrupted by careerism, elitism, compromise, Assadism, Stalinism, hating on Muslims & Jews. The leaden passivity & provincialism of working people in places like the US is a problem but that can change decisively when they begin to reject their compromised, white supremacist leadership. In Palestine, Kashmir, India, Syria, Iraq, the new Arab Spring uprisings, & some countries in Latin America, working people are the heart of the struggle & the political model for fearless resistance to oppression & inequality. Standing with them four-square is imperative because they lead the way forward for all suffering humanity. Solidarity is not noblesse oblige; it is the iron law of social transformation against capitalism in its barbaric phase.

Our mission is to build a society suitable for children to come of age in, for human beings to live & love in. Happy New Year 2020.
