The Socialists Support the
War (August 4, 1914) 

The victory of Russian despotism, stained with the blood of the best of its own people, would put much – indeed, everything – at stake for our nation and its future development toward liberty. We must ward off this danger; we must protect our civilization and the independence of our own country"
Today it is the other way around. Those who were once international socialists defend Russian support for reaction and autocracy in Syria by conjuring a non-existent threat from the US and its allies.
