The world, not the US, is in a fragile state and its entire population is suffering. International capitalism, not “US fascism,” is the cause of this problem. True, US imperialism over the past 150 years has played a major role. But that was merely taking the place of European imperialism which had been providing that role for how many centuries?

Tossing around words like “fascism” and Nazi” in the context of what is currently taking place in the US while ignoring what is taking place in China, Russia, India, Hungary, Poland...perhaps now even France, Germany and England, is utterly absurd. But focus some will upon the US for any number of reasons. And with any number of well-intentioned justifications.

Until some REALLY UNDERSTAND what is taking place in the wider world, nothing will change.
