    This probably deserves it’s own topic.  This is an interesting article on the attempts by Hinu nationalists to use Hindutva to influence Indian-Americans and their voting patterns:

    I’d be stunned if some of the same issues weren’t running in British politics (I believe Corbyn copped some flack, I think over Kashmir).

    Where do we start?

    With Marx’s belief that Lord Palmerston was the Tsar’s agent?

    The Zinoviev letter?

    The Nazi sympathisers in pre-war Britain such as King Edward

    All the CIA Cold War publishing fronts that our late comrade Peter Newell documented

    Or now these social media campaigns by Russia being uncovered  and exposed?

    As for ourselves, the WSM is unashamed to state that what concerns the working class in other countries, also concerns ourselves.

    Tulsi Gabbard, a Hindu, was accused of seeking the American Hindu support by praising Modi and receiving BJP funding from his supporters in the US.

    And Kamala Harris is now using her partial Indian heritage to garner votes.

    Of course, and as Cde. Newells blog remind us, Marx worked on a secret history of 18th C. diplomacy:

    (side note, Brexit seems to have re-opened the door to secret diplomacy, after all, Truss signed a trade deal with Japan on her own, no need for any parliamentary scrutiny nor approval, Royal Prerogative is back).
