Daniel lost me at the part where he thinks getting out of all of the major targets of Chinese imperialism would help global stability rather than just create a power vacuum that China will immediately fill with its own military overreach. I'm very pro-demilitarization in areas where we are unwelcome, exacerbating and concocting tension, extending or provoking war, as anyone should be. East Asia is a different situation entirely, where military presence is a check on legitimately violent and unprovoked threats from an increasingly imperialist China towards its neighbors, particularly against Taiwan and the Philippines. I don't know if he… Read more »

Kwame Ture —“A European settler colony is a land base where the European leaves Europe, goes to the land, takes over the land and subjugates the original owners of the land to the type of system the European imposes upon the original owners of the land. The Europeans do this by sheer barbaric force. Sheer barbaric force. A European colony. A white boy leaves Europe, goes to somebody's land, takes it over, subjugates the people to his way of life: politically, economically, socially, culturally. That's a settler colony. My wife is from South Africa. South Africa is a settler colony.… Read more »

ALL WHITE PEOPLE TODAY BENEFIT FROM SLAVERY AND THE SYSTEM OF RACISM WHITE SUPREMACY.. NEELY FULLER, JR. —“If you do not understand white supremacy (racism) — what it is and how it works — everything else that you think you understand will only confuse you.” Capitalism and Slavery Each generation seems condemned to have to prove the obvious anew: slavery created the modern world, and the modern world’s divisions are the product of slavery. By Greg Grandin Last week, Columbia University presented the Bancroft Award to two books that directly address the relationship of capitalism, slavery, expansion, and empire: my… Read more »

Mr. Neely Fuller, Jr. —  What are the white supremacists doing now? They are doing 4 basic things: Racial Showcasing, Racial Population Tailoring, Racial Dislocation, and  White Sacrificing. And these four things are designed to produce maximum sophisticated confusion among the victims, and so far it's been somewhat successful, world-wide.. Now, I'll start with the first one, what is RACIAL SHOWCASING. That means, taking huge numbers of black people and putting them out front. It's going to be more of this, all over the planet. Many millions of Black people that you will see, who will be rolling in money.… Read more »

Dr. Claud Anderson —"Racism is wealth- and power-based competitive relationship between Blacks and non-Blacks. The sole purpose of racism is to support and ensure that the White majority and its ethnic subgroups continue to dominate and use Blacks as a means to produce wealth and power. True racism exists only when one group holds a disproportionate share of wealth and power over another group then uses those resources to marginalize, exploit, exclude and subordinate the weaker group."

Sets Pelosi, Schumer and Jeffries on fire.The CBC should be at the leading edge of progressivism. You can't lead in the name of MLK while supporting the Three Evils.

Shes a very smart woman. The individual isnt gonna be generally overtly racist, and even if they were they usually arent even self aware enough to REALIZE they're being racist, but the system is rife with examples of it, and until we can fix the system that encourages racist behavior it's hard to teach it out of people.

Long story short this country DESPERATELY needs free education…lol

great shout-out. Striking Amazon workers worldwide need more of our attention and certainly more solidarity. Its one of the biggest international labour movements right now and for years now.

I’m not shocked that Marianne Williamson destroyed Dave. I’m surprised she did it while seeming persuasive overall.

I can’t believe I’m stating this but she should be polling higher.

Marianne was basically calmly, and gently, and in simple terms, but also firmly and intelligently, lecturing Dave like a middle-school counselor lectures a failing and problematic student.

Coming from an X-Gener anti-neolibelral perspective, I find Bessner's Millennial baby naivete astounding. He talks about US Foreign Policy like an isolationist, or at best like it is all a USA problem. The solution which would fairly rapidly transition the USA away from imperialism is UN collective security. Abolish the UN Security Council and use true internationalism.

It's not just the low wage at Amazon that's the problem, it's the working conditions in the warehouses. You've got to process 200 packages per hour in a hot and humid environment or you'll eventually be terminated. I bust my ass during my shifts and can barely keep up with the pace.

The comments on this interview on Rubin's channel have devolved into name calling. What happened to the ideas?

I want her on this show. Williamson's policies harmonise a lot with Michael Brooks and even Seder's. And hey Michael, which other candidate has read the Vedas?

If a politician’s #1 policy isn’t ending our murderous empire and colonialism, then anything they offer you domestically is nothing more than a bribe in exchange for your complacency with, and hence your complicity in their war crimes. It’s a first world privilege to accept war criminals as leaders. From the perspective of the people that are slaughtered by our neoliberals, the trade you make is their lives in exchange for what amounts to scraps in terms of our basic human rights and resources to survive. The lesser of two evils ( when they’re war criminals) is a false choice… Read more »
