Midnight Special - Beating Around the Bush Edition
I visited the Justice Democrats and Our Revolution websites to see what they had to say about the U.S. military Empire and U.S. imperialism, what some call "foreign policy". These are the two organizations that are supposedly challenging the "corporate dems" in the democratic party.
What struck me about their statements on "foreign policy" is they don't mention the words imperialism, militarism, or Empire. That's not atypical in the political world of course. Telling it like it is relative to U.S. foreign policy is like talking about the JFK assassination or the false flag attack on 9/11/01. It's actually considered a conspiracy theory to suggest that the U.S. government and those controlling it are using the U.S. military and intelligence services to try to rule the world.
Why beat around the bush? Is it because they're afraid? Is it because they simply don't know the truth? Is it because they actually support having a military Empire? That's the Midnight Special question.
We don't need progress, we need radical.
