Well over 30 years ago, I came to the view that the only way to stop massacres carried out by the US or by proxies armed, funded, or trained by the US, would be to abolish the US government itself.

And it really says a lot about the US “Left” that preventing or ending massacres is treated as just another issue along with more bicycle paths, freeing the nipple, trigger warnings, microaggressions, or vandalizing statues.
