The New Cold War is not our war
Causality has always been a dilemma for making and judging political decisions. And it is not easy to do in a bipolar and extremely contentious new cold war between Russia and the United States. Be it that the Socialist October Revolution of the Bolschewicki is going for its first century commemoration, the hopes and dreams of working people have not been fulfilled by the restoration of capitalism in Russia. As more light sheds on this historic experience, pieces of the puzzle begin to appear that help us explain the ugly developments of Russia. The imperialist tentacles of an expansive and aggressive oligarchist state are in the active process of reviving and kindling the fire of the cold war. Some of the “left” in the political sphere are being used (and is letting themselves be used!) by Russian propaganda (see “RT”) and systematic disinformation (Bernie Bros) to lower their guard and become blind on one of their antiimperialistic eyes. As accusations flow rapidly: you become labeled of being either a supporter of US war hawks like Hillary Clinton, or you are pinned as a welcome pawn of Putins aggressive expansion. Either you get rubber stamped as an anti-Russian war mongering US-NATO imperialist or you are a supporter of one of the most despotic and corrupt dictatorships on the planet. A true anti militaristic peace movement against both superpowers is difficult to find and has a hard time to grow. It is a new cold war that has emerged and we have to expose that.
I refuse to be used as a pawn in this new cold war! For me it is neither nor!
