Seattle and the Socialist

The Socialist candidate, Kshama Sawant, has been elected to ‘s City Council.

The capitalist system, she says, is “at the root” of racism in America. She also says:

“Racism is necessary for this oppressive system to exist. It prevents ordinary people from coming together of different races and turning their fire towards Wall Street, corporate politicians and the ruling elite as a whole … the bankers, the billionaires, the capitalists — they are the criminals of our society. They are amounting unimaginable wealth by exploiting the rest of us and maintaining their power by dividing us.”

The U.S. has shown in the past that it has little respect for democracy when it does not serve Capitalism itself; and particularly when democracy represents those whose ideals lie at the Left of the political spectrum.
