Left anti-communism is what lets imperialist propaganda operate unchallenged

Ukraine is the great test for U.S. imperialism’s ability to sway minds to its side. Two decades into a process of decline for Washington’s hegemony, catalyzed by the irrecoverable global blowback from the Afghanistan and Iraq invasions, the imperialists have staked their survival in the outcome of the Ukraine war.
