Support the WSWS and the fight against militarism and war!
As the world marks the 100th anniversary of World War I, there are ominous similarities between the state of global geopolitics today and the incendiary conflicts and tensions that erupted in 1914.
There is not a region in the world that is not a potential flashpoint of conflict. The ruling classes in Germany and Japan are pursuing a policy of remilitarization. The US “pivot to Asia” is aimed at encircling China, while the conflict with Russia has taken the form of a Western-stoked regime change operation in Ukraine.
The situation in Ukraine highlights the critical role of the WSWS in cutting through the government and media lies. The US and European powers have encouraged protests led by extreme right-wing and fascistic forces, in alliance with billionaire oligarchs. The mass media has responded dutifully with a propaganda campaign, while pseudo-left forces are once again hailing a supposed “revolution.” Only the WSWS has exposed the imperialist operation for what it is, while at the same time insisting that the interests of the working class require an independent socialist and internationalist program in opposition to all sections of the ruling class.
In Germany, remilitarization has been accompanied by a campaign of historical falsification aimed at whitewashing the crimes of German imperialism, including those perpetrated by the Nazis, while falsifying the nature of the Russian Revolution and the role of Leon Trotsky. The most backward ideologies are once again being legitimized. The ICFI and the WSWS have been at the forefront of the fight to clarify the real history and lessons of the 20th Century.
