I was listening to some left-liberal news medeia today and they had a recently freed activist from Bahrain on the show. She began talking about the things going on there, the experiece of being in prison, etc.
At one point she said something like we just want to have "freedom" like the other countries, and she went on to list some western "democracies."
How much does this type of mentality play into the current direction of the proletariat? It's not just pure democratism, is it? Do workers in other countries percieve western countries as being "free?" On what basis?
How do we defeat this thinking in 2014? What is the best way to respond?
