Saker interview with Jeff J. Brown

Foreword by the Saker:  Just as I was about to publish this interview with Jeff J. Brown, I got the following email for Larchmonter445: http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2015-05/26/c_134269678.htm Yang, the man in glasses next to the woman interpreter, is top Councillor for Foreign Policy and often deals as a second Foreign Minister.

‘Cultural’ & ‘Permanent Revolution’ in Iranian Revolutionary Shi’ism

by Ramin Mazaheri for The Saker Blog “Trotsky was and, in as much as he lives in his writings, remains the foremost strategist of world socialist revolution. Hence the indissoluble association of his name with the theory and strategy of Permanent Revolution—an association familiar even to those like Mazaheri….” That is a quote from the World Socialist Web Site’s 3-part series designed to rebut my work popularising the concept of

Parallels between Iran’s Basij and the Chinese Communist Party

by Ramin Mazaheri for The Saker Blog As every journalist and critic knows, the laziest (and fastest) way to describe something is to present it in terms of something else. This is the “new that”, or this is similar to “that combined with this”. This article, which is part of an 11-part series on Iran written in response to the World Socialist Web Site’s “A reply to a proponent of

China’s only danger: A ‘Generation X’ who believes they aren’t communist

by Ramin Mazaheri for The Saker Blog When you have a world war, there is no question: We are all living in a postwar world. However, not all subsequent generations have been shaped the same. In debunking the standard view of the Cultural Revolution in this series – and also showing that, when it came to politics and non-musical revolutions, John Lennon was the status-quo company man and Mao was

Do you prefer the 1% or The Party? (Or: Why China wins)

by Ramin Mazaheri for The Saker Blog 2018 China: the envy of the world – just check the scoreboard. The Chinese communists kicked out the the Japanese, then the Europeans, held off the American neo-imperialists at Korea and then Vietnam, provided spectacular economic growth during all that time, ended rampant drug abuse, forbid ethnic quarrelling, and is the economic envy of the world in 2018.

Once China got off drugs: the link between opium and ‘liberal strongman’ Macron

by Ramin Mazaheri for The Saker Blog The link between Chinese opium money and rich Western families and monarchies (Astor, Forbes, Kerry, Delano, Roosevelt, etc.) is already well-known, though it’s not publicised enough in the Mainstream Media. What is even less publicised is how in 2018 the drug trade creates a country – Columbia, Mexico, even Afghanistan, certainly the United States, etc. – which becomes so socially, culturally, financially and

The Rape of Russia (Saker blog exclusive interview)

by Lars Schall for the Saker blog Introduction by Pepe Escobar: William Engdahl is one of the world’s top geopolitical analysts. His books – from Century of War to Full Spectrum Dominance – are absolutely essential to understand how the self-described exceptional nation created and expanded its global hegemony tentacles. A measure of his influence is that as much as Engdahl may be dismissed or derided across the Beltway, the

Mao’s legacy defended, and famous swim decoded, for clueless academics

by Ramin Mazaheri for The Saker blog Part 4 will take a very different tack…. There is a great and hilarious story about Mao during the Cultural Revolution, which is relayed in the Western university-standard textbook, China: A New History by “the West’s doyen on China” – John King Fairbank. In late 1965 the rumblings of the Cultural Revolution had begun, due to grumblings over corruption, revisionism (“taking the capitalist

When Chinese Trash saved the world: Western lies about the Cultural Revolution

Most leftists won’t even touch it, much less defend it an inch…and

Daring to go beyond Western propaganda on the Great Leap Forward’s famine

by Ramin Mazaheri for the Saker Blog Between 108 BC and 1911 AD there were no fewer than 1,828 recorded famines in China, or nearly one each year. Since 1962 there should have been in China – if their historical average remained unchanged – 50 serious famines. Instead there have been zero. When one discusses “China” and “famine” – how often do you hear this totally valid point of view? I
