Why Obama should read Trotsky

'US capitalism is up against the same problems that pushed Germany in 1914 on the path of war. The world is divided? It must be redivided. For Germany it was a question of "organising Europe". The US must "organise" the world. History is bringing humanity face to face with the volcanic eruption of American imperialism.'
Leon Trotsky, 1934. For more on Obama, see this month's Socialist Review, which carrys extensive comment from the likes of Manning Marable, David Hilliard, Noam Chomsky and Gary Younge.
