Paper speaks ‘truth to power’
I want to thank the folks at the Militant for exposing the imperialist attacks against the people of Haiti and for the exposé about the New York subway system. Knowing that there is a publication that speaks truth to power fortifies my brain in the fight against economic cruelty.
Concerning the disparaging remarks imperialists like Trump make against poor nations, I ran across a passage in a book by author Wendell Berry, “If you wish to steal farm products or coal or timber from a rural region, you will find it less troubling to do so if you can believe the people are too stupid and violent to deserve the things you wish to steal from them. And so purveyors of rural stereotypes have served a predatory economy.”
‘Fountain of knowledge’
Your newspaper has invaluable information, and is a unique fountain of knowledge on the Cuban Revolution and about imperialism. Thank you for keeping us updated while in prison.
