Worth Thinking About

I was viewing Sinn Fein’s YouTube proclamation against imperialism, fascism, and racism, and thought to myself, “What bona fide political party in the United States would do anything like that?” Certainly neither of the two parties controlling our government.

Which reminded me of the recent decision by the Mapuche nation to organize a political party open to indigenous as well as non-indigenous citizens of the Chilean state, in order to fight for values, rights and beliefs betrayed by liberals and conservatives.

I don’t know how such an endeavor might be launched in the US, but it’s something worth thinking about. I mean, we’re certainly not going to make any headway against imperialism, fascism, or racism by supporting Democrats and Republicans.
