Imperialism leaves behind germs of rot which we must clinically detect and remove from our land but from our minds as well.
Instead of writing about my ten favourite records this month, I have decided to review just one.
It’s important to oppose imperialist intervention in Ukraine and say no to Putin’s war. Already Russian military forces have seized Crimea. Russian imperialism is no more progressive than that of the US and NATO – we should oppose all of them. And war would be a disaster for the people of Ukraine. This useful article by Alex Callinicos sets out how Putin’s power play fits into the system of inter-imperialist rivalry. The old slogan, “neither Washington nor Moscow”, is an especially good one now.
