The warfare state and the welfare state are inevitably linked, two sides of the same coin. The elites who run both of these scams have convinced many of those protesting against one to support the other through a false choice between the left and right sides of the same pyramid scheme – with them at the top and most of us at the bottom. As long as our struggles are limited to working to elevate left above right or right above left, the pyramid remains balanced on our backs, ensuring their comfort.
They cite an upcoming antiwar rally featuring speeches by Matt Gonzalez and Ron Paul as proof that this can happen.
They then bash this site, as well as Antiwar.com, and Infoshop for having the effrontery to criticize the hard left. This seems a non sequitur to me. How does criticizing the left imply that left and right can’t join together on some issues – something this blog has advocated for quite a while, by the way.
Update: They weren’t bashing at all, it was a formatting problem. See the comments here for an explanation. A better formatted version of the post is here.
