Tacitly America’s Perpetual Nuclear War, need for a revolutionary party?
This man has been for Revolutionary change because science and Eco-socialism equals the ways of Ecology. This is to state that Eco-Tide is because of fascist-State. Divvying-up flatness to decimate the forests of bitchen-Cal in 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s was morose. Plain ole mule-headed indifferences of labor, of capital investment for short-term gain, that which could—an did—arrive at the serious-consequences of derivatives-Banking and Bailout the Too-Big-Too-Fail amenity of capitalist-totalitarian state can survive “ill-will” that ill-will was the prescience of the elites, you ought to know the underscore of Bourgeois for Bourgeois-Banking—selling wraps of mortgages off to international real-Estate Investors, altho off-shore accounts are yet another sidelight not yet trounced upon as much as Wall Street was propped, for sure. Where is the populous Sociology if not on the need of Universality in being rid the Determinist-Exceptionalism of plutocracy—the fascist-State. The admonition of configuration not produced by others altho puzzling is predicated upon “neglect”. One needs figure you don’t owe neglect to yourself, why does the “system”? “R”
“On the evening of July 25, 1945, President Truman confided to his diary that the atomic bomb “seems to be the most terrible thing ever discovered, but it can be made the most useful.” Twelve days later it was “useful” in Hiroshima, and again three days later it was “useful” in Nagasaki.
In a radio speech the day Nagasaki was obliterated, Truman told his American audience, “The world will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, a military base. That was because we wished in this first attack to avoid, insofar as possible, the killing of civilians.”
The world took note that as many as 140,000 civilians were killed instantly or later died of injuries and radiation poisoning at Hiroshima.
To prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power in the Middle East, President Bush has tasked the Pentagon with developing plans for a surgical strike on Iran’s nuclear facility at Natanz, which is buried under 75 feet of earth and rock.
One option on the table is the B61-11, the smallest tactical nuclear weapon in the U.S. arsenal. The B61 is a variable yield bomb. It can be calibrated to yield as low as 0.3 kilotons or has high as 170 kilotons of atomic power. Its maximum yield is ten times that of the bomb dropped on Hiroshima.
In keeping with our country’s “humanitarian” effort to minimize civilian casualties in a nuclear strike, “low” yield tactical nuclear weapons, such as the B61, have been reclassified by the Pentagon as “safe for the surrounding civilian population.” Because these weapons are now considered as “safe” as conventional munitions, their use is at the discretion of the theater commander. Presidential approval is no longer needed to start a nuclear war.
But the world should note that America has been waging a “low yield” nuclear war that has been killing civilians for almost two decades. Missing from this war are mushroom clouds and very loud booms. Present is nuclear fallout with its insidious long-term effects on both combatant and civilian and its perpetual contamination of land and water resources.
The United States began waging nuclear war in Kosovo in 1990 and has continued through the Persian Gulf War, Bosnia, Afghanistan, and Iraq. The “nuclear tipped” weapon of choice in each of these theaters of war has been depleted uranium (DU) munitions.”

The capitalist-Totality has had all the decadence the we-people of the human-World can understand but do not need to take anymore of, because the end-zone here looks mighty BLEAK. One the system is weak, and in comparison to logic is anarchism. Two, the criminals of those gooks-of-Governance are not-in-Jail and ruination is ragtime for the 98% of us. Three, GMO’s are eco-Ruination, as much as NSDU-238 has proven to be. Four cover-up by illicit use of yet other “chemical Enactments” are all illegal under current and past Laws, so that accountability must be reconciled for those who “do care”. Five, anarchists led Lenin to support Stalin and Stalin to support bureaucracy.
We do not need a totalitarian-Capitalist state of any kinds “Technocracy coupled to high-spun bureaucracy”. Breaking down the impediments to those particulars above will at least make, state-ownership the balance of Medicare for all, and State ownership of Banking the verisimilitude of open “free” market, not closed shut-off, privatized market and market place and working wages negligence when done in accordance w regulated public housing. Regulation of non-lead pipes and non-fluoride “water” to name a few, as well as state ownership of oil to replenish he military ventures w fewer overtures of “we need; we Greed” hegemony. Mostly, the where-to-start is space-Time: present. “R”
“The problem is severe: according to the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, climate change is becoming less and less reversible. Already, if all climate change-producing pollution (greenhouse gas emissions) stopped tomorrow, global temperatures would continue to rise, although more slowly, for several decades or even centuries. In other words, even in such ideal circumstances, climate change has grown to a point where it is no longer a question of reducing our contribution to climate change; the time has come where aggressive measures to reverse climate change are necessary.
Unless those measures are taken, the fate of life as we know it hangs in the balance: the world is already nearly 1°C warmer than it was 300 years ago, before the industrial revolution vastly increased greenhouse gas emissions. The world is warming about 0.3° C per decade, which, combined with the pollution already raising global temperatures, locks global warming to 2°C or more before 2100.
Such an increase in temperature would be disastrous: 2°C is widely acknowledged as the tipping point for climate change, a point where reversing climate change is nearly impossible. At 2°C, changes in rainfall patterns would lead to desertification in large parts of Europe, Australia, North America, and Africa, particularly in areas where land is presently being used for farming. Such a temperature increase would also rapidly accelerate glacial melting, which would further increase the rate of warming, since water absorbs more heat than ice. This is one of several climate feedback loops that would spin out of control given 2°C warming, which also include ocean acidification and the release of methane (a greenhouse gas) from tundra loss…
The only radical economic transformations in modern history—transformations to make economies meet real needs—have been socialist transformations. From the breakneck industrialization of the Soviet Union that allowed it to defeat Nazism in World War Two to the drastic rise in Chinese standards of living from 1949 to1976, socialist economies have shown themselves to be the only way forward out of the callous brutality of capitalism. Socialism offers the possibility of a planned economy, an impossible task under capitalism, a system driven by the logic of pursuit of profits.
Revolutionary socialists can only call themselves such if they understand the pressing need for socialism in the context of the looming ecological disaster. This understanding must be followed by an urgency in our work to build an organization capable of producing revolutionary struggle—in our work to build a revolutionary party.
The masses of people understand in some way or another that capitalist industry is to blame for climate change, but it is not up to revolutionary socialists to begin a revolution—revolution comes when there is a revolutionary crisis. Revolutionary socialists, on the other hand, have a critical role to play in turning spontaneous and non-revolutionary struggle into revolutionary struggle. This task can only be accomplished by a revolutionary party.”
