Socialists Motivated by Wikileaks - "It is Time to Tear Down the Empire"

Whatever the motivation of the Wikileakers, the far left is using the leaks to motivate their base.

Andrea Pason and Billy Wharton are co-chairs of the Socialist Party USA. They just published this statement in LINKS, an international marxist journal run by the Australian Socialist Alliance.
The latest Wikileaks revelations should be a call to action for all Americans. It is time to tear down the empire that has been created in their name. Two tasks are first and foremost. We need to create a vibrant movement to end the wars being waged in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan. No more occupations, no more military surges and no more drone attacks. Simultaneously, we must demand that the prison facility at Guantanamo Bay be closed immediately. Achieving such demands will open a political space to more directly challenge the centre of the military industrial complex by calling for an immediate reduction of the military budget by 50% and the closing of all US military bases abroad.

As democratic socialists, we imagine another society, where the great wealth this world produces is put to use to meet human needs. Such a world would not need the secret cloak that covers the operations of the US empire. It would, instead, be based on notions that seem very distant from our current reality – democracy, free association and self-determination. We think that democratic socialism holds the potential to live up to these lofty ideals. Let the Wikileaks disclosures provide the motivation for you to join in this struggle.
Whenever you want to know who is behind a project, look at who has most to gain.

The far left clearly has more to gain from Wikileaks, than do those who want to preserve freedom and the American republic.

Have these people ever heard of a terrorist? Have they ever heard of Hitler? Stalin? Have they ever imagined that some people don't respond to anything but peace through the threat of superior firepower?

Fairyland must be a nice place to live.

LOL Notice they're not outraged about any particular bit of info- they're just trying to give the impression there's some really sinister stuff that got leaked. That's why they try to prod people to be motivated about it- there's nothing there to motivate naturally. Commies are so clever- not.

I think this wikileaks stuff,and this sudden reinterest in net neutrality are interlinked as are this sudden burst of energy from these scums in the unions and leftist weirdos in the democratic party."as in the days of Noah,so shall it be at the Coming of the Son of Man". We win,and sadly they lose and lose Big.Forever.Even so hail His name.We're on the last few pages guys.Pray

Many leftists are "idealists", and as such, are basically illogical. There's no other way to put it simply. As Bill Buckley, Jr. noted, "Idealism is fine, but as it approaches reality the cost becomes prohibitive."

For example, take this line from the second paragraph. "As democratic socialists, we imagine another society, where the great wealth this world produces..." Stop right there.

Hasn't it ever occurred to these fruitcakes that "the great wealth this world produces" didn't simply come into being, as one might produce a rabbit from a seemingly empty hat? And it certainly didn't arise from the careful redistribution of some naturally occurring, spontaneous pile of cash laying in the street, just waiting for the libs to pass around!

I was more referenceing the post above mine,wow. But no they aren't smart enough to understand that Chinas economic burst was because they had implemented the despised "Capitalist",system.They also aren't smart enough to know that Capitalism empowers everyone to have a chance at a better life and that socialism or communism,same thing,impoverishes everyone but a very few at the top.Communism is for losers and ego maniacs who don't have what it takes to make it.

Yes, it is communist conspiracy long in the hatching! The real motives are clear and have been handed down since the days of Lenin and Trotsky, as LINKS is not afraid to boast at
