The challenge at this moment isn’t to uncover hypocrises – where you were when the U.S. invaded “fill in the country” – among people opposing Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, but rather to encourage and join them in struggle. It looks like the invasion is taking a deadlier and more dangerous turn, making worldwide opposition all the more important. More than a few on the left here – and the communist movement worldwide – are prisoners of old understandings, old logics, and old reflexive positions – and thus are on both sides of this bloody clash. But such a position is becoming more and more difficult to defend as Putin’s invasion of the Ukraine leaves in its wake more and more dislocation, destruction, and death.
