Ancient Democracy – 5 years ago


(This is a revised posting from 5 years ago)

It is not always easy to tell real news from fake news, but sometimes it’s simple. All we need to hear is one word and the full-of-shit buzzer goes off. The word is democracy. Any time an authority speaks of ”our” (American) democracy, the authority declares intellectual bankruptcy.

Here, as an example, is Molly K. McKew, a high-level political advisor: (Politico Magazine, Jan. 1, 2017):

”the West is already at war (with Russia), whether it wants to be or not. … This war seeks, at home and abroad, to erode our values, our democracy, and our institutional strength”

Molly’s article is another voice in the choir condemning Russia with all the passion and rage we should recognize from the weapons-of-mass-destruction opera sung to justify the invasion of Iraq. She presents not a single fact or names any specific source but whines and insinuates the evils of Russia threatening ”our values and democracy”. (A “democracy” where the entire government consists of 1%ers)

I wonder how Russia managed to get America to

— force millions of workers to slave away at underpaid jobs?

— amass the largest prison population in the world?

— militarize the police and have them gun down unarmed people regularly?

— continue bombing and killing innocent people year after year in at least 6 countries? (At the time of Molly’s article.)

— support the genocide of the Palestinian people while suppressing them with apartheid?

— constantly expand poverty and the number of homeless people?

— create the greatest inequality gap in the world?

— take money from the majority of hardworking citizens and give it to a few giga-rich corporate commanders via tax cuts while cutting services for the multitudes.

— fill veterans with cocktails of mind-altering drugs so that 8000/year commit suicide?

— cause widespread sickness, suffering and death by driving millions of people to obesity with sugared almost everything, and a junk food culture in general?

— contaminate at least 3000 communities with poisonous drinking water?

— lobbytomize the government into a herd of bribe-takers?

— spread tons and tons of radioactive particles into the environment with uranium-tipped (DU) bullets and missiles?

— cause the health/pharma industry to elevate medical treatment to the third cause of death after cancer and heart ailments?

— force parents to choose between food or medicine for their children?

— suppress the reports of over 3000 professional architects and engineers proving that  the three World Trade Center skyscrapers must have been brought down by controlled demolition.

— believe that it is an exceptional (superior) nation?

— torture people and keep them illegally imprisoned?

— erode the national infrastructure?

— run up a national debt that threatens the economy of the world?

— create a culture so crippled and decadent that ignorant, lie-infested psychopaths can sing through manicured smiles about the democratic values of an empire run by a tiny group of greed-obsessed billionaires.

If Russia can cause all of this, American may just as well surrender and save themselves a lot of pain.

    From what you wrote, I can see how democracy and hypocrisy are interchangeable!
