      The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.....Martin Luther King '63

      It takes all the technical proficiency our system can provide to make up for the woeful lack of popular support and political savvy of most of the regimes that the West has thus far sought to prop up.........Bernard Fall

      Yes.

      There really is no other way . . . as long as Capitalism rules.

      The only thing that will create meaningful change at this point, is revolution. Worldwide. And like Caitlyn Johnstone says, the revolution starts with us, inside. Discussion of the class war alone is not enough: people need to understand that capitalism destroys everything that is potentially good about humanity.
