The Ruthless Truth: Episode 27 - U.S.A's COVID Response, Capitalism Kills!

Please listen and share!! The Omicron variant is spreading like wildfire across the world, with over a million new cases per day in the US, despite testing being hard to come by. Workers are being forced to go in sick as hospitals are overrun, all while Biden declares that there is "no federal solution" as profits are put over people once again.

How did we get here? Why has the U.S. abandoned controlling the spread of the virus while China has eradicated the virus domestically?

What could have been done, and what would a socialist plan to deal with the pandemic look like? We discuss all this and more in this crucial episode.

The Ruthless Truth: Episode 19 - 9/11/21: A Reflection on the US Imperialist War against Afghanistan

New Ruthless Truth episode for the 20 year anniversary of 9/11 laying out the real story of the US War on Afghanistan. Listen now to The Ruthless Truth on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or wherever you find your podcasts!

The US has officially pulled out of Afghanistan, a war that has officially been going on since the 9/11 terrorist attacks 20 years ago. Since then almost one million troops have been deployed to Afghanistan, with the most recent reason given by politicians and the media on why we were there being to stop the Taliban from coming to power. A reality that is coming true, even after we wasted the lives of over 6000 soldiers and 150,000 Afghani people. $2.26T tax dollars were invested in this war too, even as each successive president promised to end the war. But we already know, here in America, that policy is made in the pursuit of profits, and American war profiteers are some of the richest people and businesses in the world.

Today we aim to show that this tragedy was not only unnecessary, but well-planned, and lied about. From the Taliban’s pursuit of a peace deal since 2001, when they offered to give up Osama bin Laden, and America refused, to America’s dogged pursuit of a permanent occupation; we will lay out the possible motivations, as well as the key players and actions that they took to prolong the war or misrepresent it.
