PQC: First, this title “The Myth of Western Democracy” is misleading as if only WESTERN DEMOCRACY is a myth. The reality is not only democracy is a myth but the whole Statist system, of which western democracy is just a small part, is a myth!
Anyway, the reason I post this new article of PCR is to show you how confused the author is. He praised Hungarian and Austrian “democracies” and their “nationalist leaders” as if nationalism were true democracy! He condemned Belgium government and praised the “Belgian people”. And he is indeed very brave in urging the people of Europe to rise up, kill the police force : “In short, until the conquered peoples of Europe kill the police, who serve the ruling elite and delight in inflicting brutality against those whose taxes pay their salaries, take the weapons from the police, and kill the corrupt politicians who have sold them out, the peoples of Europe will remain a conquered and oppressed peoples.
Well, what a bout the arm force? Is the arm force not serving the ruling class?
Anyway, Is USA’s democracy exceptional? If not, why didn’t PCR call for the people in “the land of the free and home of the brave” to rise up killing the fucking police thugs in the USA and get rid of the fucking Jewish controlled system that PCR has often rightly and angrily complained with contempt?
As I’ve always strongly argued that Israel is not the problem. Israel is nothing! It’s just a little shit that, without the support of the West, in which the fucking Jews are living and controlling of, will be wiped out of the world map in a very short time. Israel cannot even defeat Hezbollah!
The fact is that since the beginning of 20th century almost all western so-called democracies, even Russia’s, have been set up for and serving the fucking Jewish controlled Cabal. The Cabal mainly consists of Jews living in the West and headquartered in the USA.
Have you ever questioned how these fucking Jews, though very small hated minority by the very hosts, have achieved such controlling power right in the den of their very enemies? Yet, Mr PCR only talked contemptuously about “a pact that will replace the Belgian people with migrants from Africa, the Middle East, and Asia”. What a fucking intelligence and honesty!
The very top of western society as a whole a.k.a the elites, who hold true controlling power over everything in people lives, has been replaced with the fucking Jews for years. Yet, PCR and the likes, are so brave that would not dare to talk about these fucking Jews, but now are just worrying about a bunch of poor people from Africa, the Middle East, and Asia living at the bottom!
It’s not the myth of (representative) democracy but the myth of statism, from which the myth of democracy derives, is the problem.
For those of you who have not known about this, please read “The most Dangerous Superstition” by Larken Rose
Anyway, enjoy his naive and stupid statist rant!
The Myth of Western Democracy
Paul Craig Roberts
How does the West get away with its pretense of being an alliance of great democracies in which government is the servant of the people?
Nowhere in the West, except possibly Hungary and Austria, does government serve the people.
Who do the Western governments serve? Washington serves Israel, the military/security complex, Wall Street, the big banks, and the fossil fuel corporations.
The entirety of the rest of the West serves Washington.
Nowhere in the West do the people count. The American working class, betrayed by the Democrats who sent their jobs to Asia, elected Donald Trump and the American people were promptly dismissed by the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton as “the Trump deplorables.”
The Democrats, like the Republicans, serve power, not the people.
In Europe we see the squashing of democracy everywhere.
British prime minister May has turned Brexit into subservience to the EU. She has betrayed the British people and has not yet been hung off of a lamp post, which shows how acceptance the British people are of betrayal. The British people have learned that they do not count. They are as a nothing.
The Greeks voted for a leftwing government that promised to protect them from the EU, IMF, and big banks, but promptly sold them out with austerity agreements that destroyed what remained of Greek sovereignty and Greek living standards. Today the EU has reduced Greece to a Third World country.
The French have been in the streets in revolt for weeks against the French president who serves everyone except the French people.
There are currently massive protests in Brussels, Belgium, with half the government also resigning in protest against the government signing a pact that will replace the Belgian people with migrants from Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. The corrupt and despicable governments who signed this pact represent foreigners and George Soros’ money, not their own citizens.
Why are citizens so powerless that their governments can elevate the interest of foreigners far above the interests of citizens?
There are a number of reasons. The main one is that the people are disarmed and are propagandized to accept violence from the state against them, but not to deliver violence in return against the governments’ illegal use of force against citizens.
In short, until the conquered peoples of Europe kill the police, who serve the ruling elite and delight in inflicting brutality against those whose taxes pay their salaries, take the weapons from the police, and kill the corrupt politicians who have sold them out, the peoples of Europe will remain a conquered and oppressed peoples.
Some time past Chris Hedges, one of the remaining real journalists, made it clear that without violent revolution to excise the tumor of government superiority over the people, freedom throughout the West is dead as a doornail.
The question before us is whether the Western peoples are too brainwashed, too firmly locked in The Matrix, to exhausted to stand up and defend their freedom. Resistance is happening in France and Belgium, but the government that sold out Greece hasn’t been hung off of lamp posts. Americans are so brainwashed that they think Russia, China, Iran, Syria, North Korea, and Venezuela are their enemies when it is perfectly clear that their Enemy is “their” government in Washington.
Except for my American readers, Americans are locked in The Matrix. And they will kill in order to stay in The Matrix, where the controlled explanations are reassuring. Anyone who looks to Washington for leadership is an idiot.
Washington is a master of propaganda. Washington’s propaganda has even infected the Russian government, which from all reports stupidly believes that accommodation to Washington is the secret that will make Russia successful.
It is a foolish government that relies on agreements with Washington.
What it comes down to is this: If acceptance of provocations avoids war, that is the correct policy, but if acceptance of provocations encourages more provocations until war is unavoidable, then a more robust response to provocations is the correct policy. A more robust response introduces caution into the process, whereas acceptance of provocations encourages the aggressor.
