Excerpt on Native Americans, from the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America (Draft Proposal)

C. Native Americans.

1. The conquest, domination, plunder and life-stealing exploitation carried out by European colonialism in the Americas–including by the European settlers who founded the United States of America and expanded its reach on the North American continent through force and violence, as well as deception and other means–had a massive genocidal impact, decimating and devastating the populations of the first inhabitants of the Americas....

#4: U.S. theft of half the land of Mexico, domination and vicious super-exploitation of the people

Now, of course, slavery was not the only factor that played a significant part in the emergence of the U.S. as a world power, whose economic strength underlies its massive military force. A major historical factor in all this was the theft of land, on a massive scale, from Mexico as well as from native peoples. But, in turn, much of that conquest of land was, for a long period of time up until the Civil War, largely to expand the slave system. “Remember the Alamo,” we are always reminded. Well, many of the “heroes” of the Alamo were slave traders and slave chasers….And expanding the slave system was a major aim of the overall war with Mexico, although that war also led to the westward expansion of the developing capitalist system centered in the northern United States.

The interests, objectives, and grand designs of the imperialists are not our interests—they are not the interests of the great majority of people in the U.S. nor of the overwhelming majority of people in the world as a whole. And the difficulties the imperialists have gotten themselves into in pursuit of these interests must be seen, and responded to, not from the point of view of the imperialists and their interests, but from the point of view of the great majority of humanity and the basic and urgent need of humanity for a different and better world, for another way.

#8: Iran—Decades of U.S. domination, intervention and horrors for the people

What we see in contention here with Jihad on the one hand and McWorld/McCrusade [increasingly globalized western imperialism] on the other hand, are historically outmoded strata among colonized and oppressed humanity up against historically outmoded ruling strata of the imperialist system. These two reactionary poles reinforce each other, even while opposing each other. If you side with either of these “outmodeds,” you end up strengthening both.

While this is a very important formulation and is crucial to understanding much of the dynamics driving things in the world in this period, at the same time we do have to be clear about which of these “historically outmodeds” has done the greater damage and poses the greater threat to humanity: It is the historically outmoded ruling strata of the imperialist system, and in particular the U.S. imperialists.

Excerpt on International Relations, from the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America (Draft Proposal), p. 30

E. International Relations.

2. In its international relations, the New Socialist Republic in North America will give priority to overcoming the terrible legacy of exploitation and depredation by the imperialist USA and to contributing all it can to the advance to a world in which all conquest, plunder, and domination, and all exploitation, have been finally ended. It will approach relations in the international arena, including those with the other states, in accordance with these principles and priorities. The New Socialist Republic in North America must, most fundamentally, be a base area and source of support and inspiration for the world revolution. (In this connection, and in regard to what follows here, see also part C above in this Article and Article IV.) This will find expression, first and foremost, in support for revolutionary forces, movements and struggles throughout the world, with the aim of advancing to a communist world as the fundamental guiding principle.

#10 America has done more to destroy the planet’s environment than any other country on earth

Tweet this!

This system and those who rule over it are not capable of carrying out economic development to meet the needs of the people now, while balancing that with the needs of future generations and requirements of safeguarding the environment. They care nothing for the rich diversity of the earth and its species, for the treasures this contains, except when and where they can turn this into profit for themselves....These people are not fit to be the caretakers of the earth.
