“Turning to Vietnam, Malcolm said, “If America sends troops to Vietnam, you progressives should protest.” He argued that “the struggle of Vietnam is the struggle of the whole Third World: the struggle against colonialism, neocolonialism, and imperialism.” Malcolm X, like so many before him, consistently connected colonialism, peace, and the Black freedom struggle. Yet, students have rarely heard this story.”
Millions of people oppose war and racism. But the voices of those who present morally compelling challenges to the martial status quo are seldom to never heard; and when they are, their spokespersons are demonized, termed dangerous radicals, or otherwise granted campaigns of character (if not actual) assassination.
Then, with the voices of the dominators still in place, the paid pundits go to work conflating what Power does with what The People (defined as ONE thread within a UNIFORM fabric) supposedly want.
And here in this forum, that same mindset is found on a daily basis (and more than suggestive of paid messaging) associating the great collective WE with support for war, militarism, and the deception that “human nature” is given to these acts.
To maintain the dominant fictions, those wise spiritual souls who oppose it are done away with… one way or another.
