Pictured above: The US orchestrated coup in Bolivia is being led by White supremist, fascist, Christian fundamentalists, just the type of jackbooted brown shirts the West loves, in order to plunder and rape countries around the world. Washington, London and Paris put fascists and mass murderers in power, because they make Wall Street billions in criminal blood money. Pictured center above is one of their psychopathic henchmen, Luis Fernando Camacho, giving a Nazi salute and wearing the Nazi Iron Cross. Notice Jesus Christ is portrayed on the flag on the right. Racist inspired blood is going to flood the Native streets of Bolivia. Read this article and get goosebumps of revulsion (https://thegrayzone.com/2019/11/11/bolivia-coup-fascist-foreign-support-fernando-camacho/).
The US-orchestrated, fascist, racist overthrow of the popularly elected socialist government in Bolivia is depressing, but not surprising (https://www.rt.com/op-ed/473181-morales-bolivia-american-coup/). As a tweet shown in this article says, it’s nothing new, as this is US coup #5 in Bolivia,
1952, 1964, 1970, 1980, 2019. Brought to you by the Bolivian oligarchy and the CIA.
Western and White Supremist Bolivian capitalists will now plunge it into another Libya, while exterminating uncounted thousands of Native Americans (https://www.rt.com/news/473494-putin-bolivia-morales-libya/), as Russian President Vladimir Putin is already warning.
Before 2006, Bolivians, like most peoples of Central and South America, were sodomized, plundered, exterminated, enslaved (mostly) Natives, watching helplessly as their natural and human resources enriched the local White elite 1% (ongoing colonial, European family lines, who started settling in the 15th century), Washington, London and Paris. In the last 13 years, Native President Evo Morales’ socialist administration has reduced extreme poverty from 38% to 15%, and overall poverty from 60% to 35% (https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/mar/07/how-a-populist-president-helped-bolivias-poor-but-built-himself-a-palace) Socialism shrank the GINI index by an eyepopping 19% and tripled the median household income, something poorer and poorer Euranglolanders can only dream about. (https://www.thenation.com/article/economics-socialism-bolivia-evo/). Until this week, the economy was the fastest growing in the region, averaging over 4% a year (https://www.macrotrends.net/countries/BOL/bolivia/gdp-growth-rate). This will all be stolen back now, post-capitalist coup.
How did this happen? They nationalized key sectors of the economy (stolen land, oil, gas, copper, lithium) and began processing their mineral wealth into value added exports, as explained by deposed Morales here (https://www.rt.com/news/473353-evo-morales-imf-exports-oas/). This money was plowed back into infrastructure (schools, hospitals, rural roads) and social services (health care, education and retirement pensions) to improve the quality of life for the 99%, at the expense of the 1%. They did it without being plundered by IMF-World Bank gangster banksters and their corrupt loans that enrich Wall Street and each country’s local elites. Read John Perkin’s book, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, which he is now offering for free (https://www.academia.edu/7614432/John_Perkins_Economic_Hit_Man_Summary_of_Confessions_of_an_Economic_Hit_Man_About_John_Perkins_Author_of_Confessions_of_an_Economic_Hit_Man). You can see how the global elite destroy entire economies to starve and exterminate millions of mostly dark-skinned poor, in order to plunder trillions of dollars in assets. Another scathing exposé of how Western elites legally rape the weak, in the guise of the “Liberal World Order” is Paul Blustein’s And the Money Kept Rolling In (and Out), which was being replayed again by Argentina’s neoliberal ex-president Mauricio Macri (https://www.gettextbooks.com/isbn/9781586483814/). More about this snake in a suit below.
Postwar, all of this shows how the transfer of trillions of dollars of human and natural capital are extracted and exploited by Eurangloland, so their poorer and poorer citizens can borrow printed money to buy Huawei/Apple mobile phones, Haier appliances and Lenovo/Dell computers on credit, all manufactured in communist-socialist China, while their elite owners become even bigger trillionaires and billionaires. When the current Western capitalist hyperbubble implodes in the near future, these same citizens will be driven even further into lower standards of living, but not communist-socialist Chinese, North Koreans, Laos, Vietnamese, Cubans, Eritreans and Iranians.
This brings us to the crux of my article. Western Europe, Bolivia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Brazil, Argentina, Mozambique, Angola and all other countries that practice social democracy simply cannot thrive in the global capitalist order, without one key ingredient, and it may not be what you think.
Yes, you can nationalize core industries and second, repatriate stolen land to build agriculture, infrastructure, development and industrialization. The prior was done by Europe and every other social democracy after World War II. The latter was done by China, North Korea, Venezuela, Iran, Cuba, Laos, Vietnam and many others, or former Soviet states like the “Stans” and Belarus, which just kept the land in public hands.
Today, after 75 years of relentless Big Lie Propaganda and neoliberal treachery, almost all of Europe’s key industries have been de-nationalized and much of its public assets have been privatized for profit, in the name of “free market” dogma.
So, land and industry are not enough. Even being armed to the teeth, like Venezuelans is not enough. The US and Europe cannot invade or overthrow the people’s will there, like they do most everywhere else, Bolivia being a prime example. If NATO tried to go in, it would get its butt whipped by many thousands of neighborhood militias https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colectivo_(Venezuela) ). When friends like Rory Hall at The Daily Coin (https://thedailycoin.org/) ardently support gun rights in the United States, I can see his point. Because Venezuela is locked and loaded, it is successfully drawing a line in the geopolitical sands. This is thanks to murdered former president Hugo Chavez (https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2016/03/14/murder-chavez-cia-and-dea-cover-their-tracks/), who understood Mao Zedong’s rejoinder that revolution must be defended by the barrel of a gun. Thus, Venezuelans will not be occupied by NATO.
But, the West is killing and starving tens of thousands of Venezuelans every year with genocidal economic sanctions and stealing billions of dollars in overseas assets. Sanctions and piracy are nothing more than warfare and crimes against humanity, making a mockery of the United Nations charter.
So, how can social democracies thrive in the face of global capitalist terrorism? The secret to survive and hopefully thrive is to nationalize the media. Venezuela’s media is owned by the same White supremist local elites who are destroying the country, with the help of the CIA and its thousands of faux NGOs. Ditto Bolivia (https://www.telesurenglish.net/news/bolivia-created-over-four-thousand-accounts-to-legitimize-coup-20191113-0011.html). We can see the suffering, slaughter and chaos, as a result.
The following story illustrates the point. When neoliberal thug Macri got elected president of Argentina in 2015, only to destroy the economy with tens of billions of corrupt IMF-World Bank loans that went straight into his and the local elites’ pockets, and on to Wall Street, I asked my friend, Moti Nissani (https://chinarising.puntopress.com/search/?q=moti%20nissani), who lives there, how the people could be duped into voting for such a blatant gangster.
This, after 10 years of socialist success, turning the economy around for the 99% and paying off billions of 1990s IMF-World Bank theft. My friend told me Argentina’s national media is owned lock, stock and barrel by the elites and it proved once again that Big Lie propaganda works. Tell lie after lie long enough, over and over, and people will accept it as reality, regardless of the facts and proof in their daily lives. Argentina’s elites vomited anti-socialist, pro-neoliberal Western Big Lie Propaganda on the masses and after ten years of being brainwashed, they elected to commit collective socioeconomic suicide.
Socialists just won to replace Macri, and like after the 1990s, will again be stuck fixing Wall Street’s gang bang in the making. But Washington, London and Paris will do everything possible to destroy them, while the local elite media will crank up the Big Lie Propaganda Machine (BLPM) into hyperdrive, to do the same.
This is why Hugo Chavez created the Pan-American, state owned media company, TeleSUR (https://www.telesurenglish.net/index.html). The problem is, with Latin America’s media being owned by gangster elites, they can exclude it in their TV programming and censor it in their press and on the internet.
The only countries hanging on, in a world of global capitalist pain, are the ones that openly tell their people they own and manage the media via the state, in the interest of social harmony, economic prosperity and to protect the nation from Eurangloland’s nonstop sabotage. This includes China, North Korea, Laos (where my wife and I just spent a few days and really enjoyed it), Vietnam, Cuba, Iran, Eritrea and I suspect most of the former Soviet republics. They all obviously know these famous quotes by heart…
Former CIA director William Casey famously said,
We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.
Ex-CIA director William Colby spoke the truth too,
The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media.
Carl Bernstein was told by a high-ranking CIA officer,
One journalist is worth twenty agents [spies in the field].
I used these three quotes when writing The China Trilogy (see below). They and all my research prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the West has a very highly orchestrated press and tightly censored media, just like George Orwell and Aldous Huxley predicted. Another book I quoted in The China Trilogy is Edward Bernays’ Propaganda (easy to download for free online), where he truthfully stated,
The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of… We are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.
Can it be any clearer than that, my dear Euranglolanders? Yet most of my fellow Westerners will go to the mat that they have “free press” and “liberty”. It’s a cruel mirage. When the 1% controls the media, the elites can turn the people into zombified sheeple, enriching themselves with Orwellian perpetual war, while keeping the masses entertained to death. Sheldon Wolin called this inverted totalitarianism, something I’ve also included in my books, because clueless citizens cannot recognize or admit the truth slapping them in the face. His book, Democracy Inc. is an essential primer to understand the simulacrum world Westerners live in (https://www.gettextbooks.com/isbn/9780691135663/).
Edward Bernays simply took the Nazi Big Lie playbook, then called it “publicity” and “public relations”. The CIA-Western corporate media adopted it very successfully to brainwash unsuspecting billions around the world – but not in China, North Korea, Laos, Vietnam, Cuba, Eritrea and former Soviet republics.
In my interview with James Bradley, he said that Western media is state managed and controlled (http://chinarising.puntopress.com/2018/04/06/james-bradley-tells-it-like-it-is-on-china-rising-radio-sinoland-180406/), namely by the CIA, NSA, the Departments of Defense and State. Douglas Valentine said the same thing in our discussion (https://chinarising.puntopress.com/2019/07/02/douglas-valentine-on-china-rising-radio-sinoland-the-cia-is-global-capitalisms-secret-gangster-army-190702/). Hell, the CIA owns and finances (with its global heroin and cocaine empire) billions of dollars in media companies and outlets around the world. How can we expect anything differently (https://www.globalresearch.ca/the-cia-and-the-media-50-facts-the-world-needs-to-know/5471956)?
France’s Yellow Vests notwithstanding (no surprise – whose continuing protests in the thousands have been completely flushed down the West’s Orwellian Memory Hole, https://thesaker.is/?s=Ramin+Mazaheri+Yellow+Vests), Eurangloland is a lost cause, but any other country that does not want to be raped and plundered by gangster bankster Wall Street, invaded and occupied by NATO and have their people exterminated and starved, needs to nationalize its media 100%, like China, Iran and elsewhere. Otherwise, the devolution into a neoliberal, police state hellhole, like Eurangloland, or color revolution chaos, butchery and theft, like much of Latin America, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Ukraine and too many others to count, is all but guaranteed.
The other policy they need to adopt is a strong NGO control law, like Russia, China and India have done (http://chinarising.puntopress.com/2016/04/30/baba-beijing-lowers-the-communist-boom-on-foreign-ngos-china-rising-radio-sinoland-16-4-30/). Some NGOs do good work, but too many are nothing more than color revolution shell fronts for the CIA-media complex to destroy countries from the inside. Today’s Western destruction of Hong Kong is a prime example (https://chinarising.puntopress.com/2019/07/08/confucius-laozi-and-buddha-are-humbly-winning-against-the-imperial-west-in-troubled-hong-kong-china-rising-radio-sinoland-190708/ and https://chinarising.puntopress.com/2019/07/20/wests-hong-kong-color-revolution-still-making-a-mess-of-the-place-and-totally-backfiring-china-rising-radio-sinoland-190720/).
In closing, the one exception to this is Russia, which does not have 100% nationalized media. However, for economic prosperity, social harmony and to protect the people from Western sabotage, the government works hard to control and censor destabilizing (fake) news, as this article shows (https://www.comparitech.com/blog/vpn-privacy/tech-giant-censorship/), staying on top of Twitter, Google and Facebook propaganda.
Russia is a social democracy, with a large, successful people owned industrial sector and many social services for the 99% from the Soviet era. But, unlike Bolivia and Ukraine, it is avoiding the West’s color revolution poison pill, because since 1999, Russia has gone from strength to strength, under the inspired leadership of patriotic President Vladimir Putin. But like all social democracies, the problem is what happens if another Western whore Boris Yeltsin succeeds Putin, and returns Russia to its dystopian Wall Street rape of the 1990s? Then what? It only took Macri four short years to bring Argentina back onto its groveling knees. Without a 100% nationalized media, Russians had better be demanding that Putin & Russian Patriots Inc. work overtime to censor all the Western overthrow garbage that is put in Cyrillic ink and on the airwaves.
I would love to hear what my good friend Andrei Raevsky thinks about this at The Saker (http://thesaker.is/), because let’s be honest: without China’s, Russia’s and Iran’s continued anti-imperial independence and socialist success into the 21st century, humanity can kiss its ass goodbye!

China, Bolivia, & Venezuela are all Israel and Ready for Settlement.
Israel declares balkanization of CHINA by way of Hong Kong a success.
For over 100+ years UK managed hong-kong by divide&conquer, to make HK people fear the mainland, and vice versa
Now that the riots in HK have gone FULL-RED there is no turning back. Like the United States China will be Balkanized into dozens of States by language.
Early settlers of Hong-Kong are now being asked to apply to Chabad all over Asia.
Richest Zionist elite tycoons of HK have financed rioters for six months, many of them fear losing wealth/power in time because “equality policy’s” of the mainland.
The Chinese will never be subjugated by the Zionazis as the West has been. There will be no ‘Confucian Zionist’, ‘Maoist Zionist’ or ‘Daoist Zionist’ Lobbies in China, no public lynching with entirely false charges of ‘antisemitism’ or subservience to Israel and its ever demanding Fifth Columns. No, the Chinese are so viciously ‘antisemitic’ that they see Jewish human beings as, well, human beings, like the rest of us, and not the ‘Gods Upon the Earth’ of Begin’s infamous reiteration of Judaic doctrine. That is why Israel will always be at the forefront of efforts to ‘bring China down’ the decaying West’s absolute priority.
They occupied Shanghai in the 1920’s, turned into a giant whorehouse and banking center
They occupied Hong-Kong for a 100+ years, whorehouse, banking, and opium
They did this all by divide&conquer
They also funded Mao & ChaingKaiShek all at the same time, no matter who won, THEY WON.
The MOST popular book in China is a book called “How the Jews control America”, the Chinese find it fascinating that little tiny Israel controls the entire USA machine.
There are 100’s of Jewish towns in China, Xian being the biggest going back to the silk-roads 4,000 years ago. Chabad operates in the open all over China.
MAO was financed by ZIO, the real question is Deng and now XI also influenced? Hell Yes.
ZIO’s plan for ASIA is to “BALKANIZE” all of CHINA, just like the people here want to do with AFGHANISTAN, Tower of Babel, then using the UK-ZIO model, just have everyone kill each other over language.
Let’s remember here, everywhere in CHINA they speak different, HONG-KONG speaks Canton, Yunan Yunanees, Shanghai – shanghainese, only Beijing speaks Mandarin.
Israel works closely with CHINA, all the clubs like SCO, and AIIB where USA is NOT a member, ISRAEL is,
In summary Israel has its bets made, no matter who wins, zio-nazi’s win.
Personally, I would not place China in the same context as Venezuela or Bolivia. China has been calling all of the shots for the most part, and has been quite tyrannical about it as well, unlike Russia, which is obviously less populated than China, but China has been acting like a bull in a china shop, surpassed by America, Europe, and Israel. China is extremely racist as well, which is something that is rarely addressed by China defenders.
That’s a recurring theme, everywhere you go “Ignore the 500LB gorilla in the living room”, its almost as bad as being told to ignore the 5,000 Ton anglo-zionist-nazi in the attic.
Morales crime was changing the old rules of Lithium go to USA, to new rules of lithium going to China. Recall Bolivia has +70% of world known reserves of LITHIUM and today LITHIUM is the OIL of the 22nd century. Everything is EV in future, and that means WAR, it means all the drone, and robot killer’s must have battery’s and for right now LITHIUM is the only game in town.
In Venezuela much of the same crime “Doing Business with China”, that will get you ‘Democracy’ in no time, just ask Iran.
The fact is you cannot IGNORE china, even if you wanted too, almost all the proxy wars in South-America are because these country’s have chosen to suck the tit of CHINA, and NOT uncle-scam
It’s all about CHINA, so why can’t we mention CHINA?
All the silly COUPS in SouthAM are about doing business with CHINA, about leaving uncle-scam out of the DEAL.
BRIC’s is about CHINA, much of LULU is about CHINA, like “LULU” said, BRICS is a tool to kill the USD & Hegemony of USA.
Bric’s contain China, if anyone here forgot.
Actuall lithium is not essential for batteries. sodium can be used for batteries. Electon exchanges create the energy, not the lithium. I stated that China has been calling all of the shots. China is the worlds second largest economy. China is a bully and not a victim. Did you know that China had seized Brazillian gold mines in the Amazon, or that Africans have had problems with Chinese opression and bullying?
All Lithium is for batterys, Bolvia has +70% of “KNOWN World Reserves” – Lithium is the GOLD/OIL of the 22nd century
Sodium batterys don’t work except in the lab, where they use Pallidium anodes which cost same as GOLD. The entire point of the Lithium battery is that its cheap to make, and has the highest energy/kilogram ratio. All EV’s & Drones today use LIPO or Li-ION.
Lithium battery’s use graphite ANODE, which can be made from charcoal, coal, or burnt organic matter, cheap to make, in fact Bolivia could be making their own lithium batterys for the world and become the richest nation on earth if they used their brains.
All lithium is not used for batteries and you sound highly misinformed claiming that sodium batteries do not work.
People must go to college to become stupid. Here is a list of battery types. My favorite is the electric earth battery, crash the energy companies!!!! Of course if you search sodium batteries, a dozen come up, but as i stated, it is the electron exchange and not the lithium that creates the electricity.
I would not place China in the same camp as Venezuela or Bolivia. China has been calling all of the shots for the most part. Russia appears to be more even handed in its approach, and has proven to be a far better ally. China wants it both ways with the world, with the U.S. being the largest single country importer of Chinese products, yet China wants to make deals with other countries that do not support the U.S. scrapping of the JCPOA. China is also an extremely racist and nationalistic country. To insinuate that China is opressed flies in the face of all evidence.
Every where it goes CHINA tends to ignore domestic politics, just look at Africa. They’re there for the TRADE.
USA colonialism is there for the hearts&minds, most likely to create more mercenary’s, but China is like a breath of fresh air to people in Africa & SouthAM.
Now what China does it in own country is its business, just like our Waco, Lavoy-Finicum, Kent-state, Weaver, and Bonus-Boys ( US mil slaughtered in DC by US-MIL )
Talking about China, so tell us pray tell how many war fronts does China have operating right now? I can’t think of one, and yet USA has Taiwan & hong-kong in RED right now. USD via zio-anglo-nazi owner has wars or proxy-battles almost every place on earth.
So far most of the world would give China a chance to rule any day of the week, remember too their great wall, it was to keep the hordes OUT.
China has been invaded by the USA dozens of times since 1776, when has CHINA ever invaded the USA? Oh, yes we brought Chinese slaves over to build are railroads, because the USA couldn’t find workers. Then after the railroads were completed most of the Chinese were murdered ( study the great murders of hell’s canyon where chinese went to find gold )
Africans do not feel that China is a breath of fresh air. Listen to how ridiculous that hypothesis is. Oh, we are sick of being oppressed by white western civilizations, we prefer to have the Cginese be the masters for whom we serve and let rob and loot our countries!
China does trade, the USA does war, sanction, subversion and sabotage. Chinese civilization seeks harmony within society and between societies, and the West, the USA in particular, does dominance, aggression, destruction and genocide. Humanity’s one tenuous remaining hope of not being exterminated depends entirely on how soon the USA collapses and is replaced by China, and a multi-polar, harmonious, world.
There is no truth behind your statement that China seeks harmony, and does not seek to dominate, nor that China does not do war. Take a look at the South China Sea…
China built the Pupin bridge in Serbia after the US bombed and destroyed the civilian infrastructure in my country. They also financed 85% of the bridge. China rebuilds what USA destroys (at least where I come from).
I am truly sorry for what America has done in many places in the world. I am happy that China rebuilt and paid for 85% of the bridge. I do not know about this bridge, but hope that you have told the truth. That is the trick of the globalists. It really is a hat-trick too. Imagine an Israeli bragging about all that America has done for it to a Palestinian. China is not even able to get along with many countries in Eastern Asia though. The Chinese are extremely heavy handed and are even more fascist than America, and I am not arguing for the world to become colonies or vasals of America, but the Chinese have such fascist policies on their own citizens that other people will be alerted on their cell-phones if they are approaching a person that has delinquent bills. Chinese citizens every move is tracked where they are all now official propaganda agents of the Chinese government and are rewarded or punished for their onlibe activities about China. Citizens with low social credit scores will not be allowed to use public transportation. Businesses in China are forcing Chinese workers to wear brain scanning helmets. It is actually going to be at least 100 times worse than dealing with America.
It is interesting that China does not get along with many countries in South East Asia just like Russia does not get along with many countries in Europe. Could it be because both of these regions have US dominated trade blocs, ASEAN and EU… ?
No. Could it be that maybe the U.S. doesn’t get along with some Latin American countries because of BRICs? That is really a very shotty bit of propaganda. Why don’t you ask Japan and Vietnam for started, or Hong Kong? Why do you think that China will not even allow them full access to the East and South China Seas.
Vietnam is part of ASEAN, HK is an ex -British colony and Japan is a US client state. Do you have any other examples?
Btw, BRICS is not a Latin American trading block.
That is a ludicrous argument. So the U.S. should manufacture in China and hand all technology over to the Chinese government, but if Japan or Vietnam, or Hong Kong does business with America then China lays down the hammer. Thanks for proving my point, Serbian girl, China is a tyrant.
Serban girl, do you know what the B in BRICs stands for? Brazil, which is in Latin America.
Jeff…. It is indeed depressing what has happened to Bolivia, and like you, I fear that much indigenous blood will be spilt by the fascist thugs who have assumed power.
There will be jackboots in the streets, and a large number of human beings will be tortured, murdered or simply disappeared.
All while the incredibly hypocritical West applauds the ‘blossoming of democracy’. U.S style. Look at how they embraced the Poroshenko regime in Ukraine, with neo nazi’s running amok.
Regards the Western presstitute filth, refer to Udo Ulfkotte. He even admitted that footage of the Iraq-Iran war was faked, and that often German Intelligence actually wrote his stories for him. He’s now dead of course, so you can’t ask him in person.
As William Colby said: “the C.I.A owns everyone of any significance in the major media”. So why do any of us still watch or read MSM?
Regards the warped ponzi scheme of Neoliberalism, there’s an excellent site with a huge amount of detailed info called Neoliberalism Softpanorama. They refer to this dogma as ‘Trotskyism for the rich’.
I also much approve of your term Gangster Bankster Wall Street. Thanks Jeff…
Help me Obi-Wan-Kenobi; China, Russia, and Iran are our only hope.
Yes, but look CIA goons are destroying HK, which will balkanize ASIA, just like that recent article here calling for Balkanizing Afghanistan by language.
[ Britain kept power over Hong-Kong for 100+ years by making cantonese fear mandarin, and vice versa, now the CIA-MI6 is doing it again. CIA would want nothing more than to balkanize ASIA by language, then they could get everybody to kill each other. ]
Iran now is on fire, thanks to the same element found in HK.
Russia works its tail off, keep the CIA MSM at bay.
Too your point how do we save South-AM without ChinaRussiaIran; The only thing on radar is to support Cuba & Venezuela to have success where the zio-nazi doesn’t suck the blood.
This is probably also why dTrumpf comes down so hard on Huawei, with most of the world using their phones, that’s a lot of hearts the CIA would like to influence.
The truth is you just really got to redpill/bluepill people to the way it is, I know its hard, convince people that all their paradigms are crap, what else is there?
You all know Mao had his little Red Book, and Che Guevera too had a book, maybe its time for people to summarize all these rules, or practices that work.
1.) Power comes from a gun, all the people must be armed, so not parasitic nation can invade
2.) MSM is owned by liars, thus media should be local of the people
3.) All natural material must be finished by local people, so all are employed.
China honestly wants to rise all of its own people out of poverty, the USA wants to keep all of its people in poverty.
You need people to understand the model.
The only question is does China want the rest of the world to rise, I’m not sure of this, IMHO ASIAN people generally take care of their own family first.
There is no reason that other country’s in Africa, or SouthAM can’t follow the Chinese economic model.
As a former inhabitant of the GDR I have to say, that nationalizing the media might not be enough. We had that in the Eastern block. It was even the case that in regions where people were not able to see Western TV (for instance in Saxony) the opposition against Socialism was stronger than in Berlin.
I see two common variables in every socialist country that did not survive: a “middle class” that adopts “Western values” and Western influence on that group. The people in that middle class, that has the same ideas of prosperity as their Western counterparts were and are always the local agents of Western influence, pampered, financed, and acclaimed “democratic opposition” by the Western media.
As I see it so far Socialism was – in a way – “not Communist enough”. By trying to create the same kind of prosperity as shown in the West they had to fail in the beginning because they did not have colonies(and instead of exploiting the countries in Africa, Asia and Southern America they tried to help them as best as they could) and in case of Eastern Europe the circumstances after WWII didn’t make a good start possible.
But by trying this they created their opposition themselves: A class that always criticized “how backwards” Socialism is, how everything “is better in the West”….. This inner opposition you have to destroy, otherwise it comes under the influence of “Western values” and secret agencies. Or better: One has to find a way of socialism that creates enough intellectuals to govern the economy, to create technology and progress but without let them become the “new bourgeoisie” – the latter will always let every ideal down for a shiny new car and a party with celebs and “playboy bunnies”.
You cannot beat greed and the hatred of other people as motivators for the Rightwing Authoritarian Personality type to crawl out from ‘neath their rocks. Every society has them, and they only need the right circumstances, and foreign support, to wreak havoc. The impoverishment of humanity has no end,, as parasite elite greed is insatiable, and will end in mass extermination or revolt, but probably one followed by the other. Make no mistake, the ruling parasites will drown the planet in blood in order to protect their power and privilege.
Mulga… Bring back the guillotine I say. But only if enough people wake the hell up first.
Anyone with half a brain can see where Neoliberalism and the 0.01% are leading humanity: into the black abyss. And the really ironic thing is We (the plebs) vastly vastly outnumber the pyscho parasites who are plundering the planet.
‘We are many and they are few…” Unfortunately many of ‘the many’ are moronic, pig ignorant, greedy and brainwashed. Fifty percent or so voted for the most Evil and incompetent regime in our history (only so far) in May, ie for mass suicide. You can’t beat imbecility like that. And these are the Dunning-Krugerites, intellectual and moral imbeciles who think that they are clever, and Bolt, Jones and Peterson etc, are geniuses. We are soooooo very effed.
After the 1953 coup d’états all genuine socialists-communists were purged from the Soviet leadership, and the Soviet Union was gradually willfully sabotaged and destroyed by its own treacherous, with the West collaborating pseudo-socialist-communist leadership.
An at first very promising and successful – genuinely liberated, free and democratic – East Germany was therefore far less successful than it would’ve been otherwise, making it more vulnerable to Western/Nazi Big Lie propaganda as well. You know https://sascha313.wordpress.com ? They sure know what they’re talking about.
The problem is the Socialists ignored human mentality. Everyone wants something better, not something equal. Till they’re allowed to strive for it and accept failure also as a result, this fight cannot be won. What capitalism understands is simple. Humans are greedy hunter gatherer hoarders. Till you fix that DNA you have not won.
‘Everyone’?? Speak for yourself. So your DNA controls you, does it? Ever heard of the Dunning-Kruger phenomenon?
You’re absolutely right, but promoting unnatural 100% equality is typically something fake-left agents of Western imperialism (e.g. Trotskyites, pseudo-socialists) do.
Fake-right agents of Western imperialism – only pretending to be opposed to the fake-left – then use it as an argument to demonize genuine socialism (which is far more natural than tyranny by a tiny minority and simply means government by the majority).
So both the fake-left and the fake-right agents of the Empire attack genuine socialism with this flawed argument, because, on the contrary, there was and is – and there should be – plenty of room to have something better and not something equal for hard-working talented people in for instance genuine socialist East Germany and China.
We are not equal in ability or natural endowments, but we must be equal in human worth, or you end up in the death-camps, or bombing a country ‘back to the tone Age’ or sitting amidst your ( Removed language,MOD)on a side-walk in San Francisco.
Sorry- ‘…sitting amidst your urine and faeces…’
To compare these smaller countries that are being targeted by foreign powers to a super power like Russia is really not fair or realistic.
As long as weaker countries do not form some kind of multi-country alliances with their neighbors or other more powerful countries, they cannot be protected by sanctions or interference. If these weak countries are also reasonably corrupt, they are even more easier to target.
These people are NOT White, they are Mestizos, which is even worse because those are the worst kind of racist, the hald-breed. They are the Jeffrey Dahmers of race, they want to exterminate the cholos because the cholos keep reminding them of their own cholo-ness. This is not a class or economic conflict at the core but a racial war, a genocidal crusade against the darker ones, and what the Bolivian Indians are doing now is nothing less than fighting for their lives.
So true, look at the pathetic creature that is the fake president of Bolivia, that fake die blond hair shows her self-hatred of her native heritage and therefore hatred to the natives of Bolivia. It really is disgusting to see, unfortunately such racial delusion are common in Latin America.
Its true, you should meet some of these Latinos, plus the ones who have taken up evangelism, they are essentially zombies. Don’t shot the messenger Saker for stating the raw truth, look what being diplomatic and tolerant with oligarchs, fascist, racist has gotten to places like Bolivia. I don’t know is this some sort Chinese and Russian thing here that I’m supposed to be diplomatic with psychopath, like when Russians tolerate Yanks in Syria or China still want trade and relations as usual with the U.S. plus still holding on to dollar bonds.
Nah I called Mrs. Anez for what she is, and I make no apologies for that, she and her ilk should be the ones apologizing for overthrowing the democratic government for killing protesters and impoverishing the country. So back off on you telling me that my post was juvenile, juvenile doesn’t cost lives like evangelical self-hating mestizo fascist.
No-one with an IQ above 50 believes the Pentecostal and other evangelical garbage. But many cunning predators and parasites use it as a means for self-advancement, sailing to wealth and power on a wave of ignorant, xenophobic, misanthropic idiocy.
See Joel Osteen, Creflo Dollar, Tammy & Jim Baker, Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson and many more. A lot of these preachers own Rolls Royces, Private Jets, and multi million dollar mansions. Its called The Prosperity Gospel. Rather apt methinks…
Mulga please be aware that majority of bible thumpers in USA do have below 50 IQ, and do believe that anybody that holds a bible is doing god’s work, that’s dTrumps base, the sub 50 IQ mass of humanity
We know exactly why they died their hair, and hold the bible, so they would look like “dTrumpfs Kids”, the trouble is Trumps real kids look like zio-nazi-anglos, think Kushner
The entire narrative in the USA is that god-less people in SouthAM are being baptized by God, that USA is the good COP, that shines the 1,000 points of light,….
Baby Jeebuz himself said the “The meek ( dimwit/low-IQ-pop ) shall inherit the earth”
Well, the Meek shall inherit the debt, and cleanup routine, but the Zio-Nazi’s shall be the owners.
Mulga can you please provide the statistics and peer reviewed study on the IQ below 50 for people that are believers and the lie detector tests for the liars. I am really surprised that this enormous study of the majority of the world of various religions has evaded my radar. Also the authors of the study and where it was published. This must have been one of the largest research projects in history, if not the largest.
Wow, great article, and makes total sense.
Of course Bernays is the modern father of mind control via “PR,” but really only possible with the modern media.
Didn’t the Third Reich provide people’s radios that were pre-tuned to the Nazi broadcaster?
And wasn’t it a crime to listen to other broadcasters?
Are we getting there with the crminalization of social media accounts?
I always thought that social media were a tremendous trap and have never become involved.
It is horrifying to think that 39% of the world’s people are getting their “news” from Facebook.
Just stop using it.
However, I do use Youtube, and am very upset that Google is censoring on Youtube.
Anyhow, news “consumers” (that is, citizens) with any common sense should drop the MSM and get their news from alternative sites instead.
” Although mass communication has now expanded beyond the radio to include television and social media, it’s still important to be aware of who controls the medium and dominates its messages.”
I 2/3rds agree with this. I agree that anyone attempting government for the people needs to block foreign NGOs and other foreign interference. And I agree strongly that the media needs to be taken away from the comprador elites who currently control it. But I don’t think the recipe for what then should be done with it is nationalization.
There are problems with nationalization. First, no government is perfect, and no government will stay perfect even if it starts out that way. Current imperialist-controlled media are largely useless for critiquing social democratic governance because they will criticize anything such a government does, whether bad or (especially) good. But nationalized media will, even if that’s not the initial intent, just end up as pro-government propaganda. Further, the people will to a fair extent expect that because it’s so obvious, and discount what it says. So a nationalized media won’t be that useful in convincing the people of good things, and it will be useless in the genuinely important function of holding the government to account. Nationalized media will help a government drift into cronyism, corruption, and isolated, top-down technocracy. Don’t get me wrong–I think the government should own some media, have a significant media presence and be able to get its message out. Just, not all or even most of it.
Traditionally, those were the only two options anyone thought of–it’s either “the market” (quotation marks very much emphasized) or nationalization with its top-down control. But there are old options rarely thought of, and new ones enabled by modern technology and ideas. The old option I like is the worker-owned co-operative. Take the media away from the parasites who own it and hand it over to the media workers–the journalists, not to mention the technicians, janitors, makeup artists, cameramen and so on. Let ’em decide for themselves what they want to cover.
But they can’t decide for themselves what they want to cover if the money is coming from big corporate advertisers and the CIA. They need to do what the advertisers and other money boy want. So, go with a sort of public Patreon. Every citizen gets a certain, equal amount of money dedicated to media funding. They can go to the public website, log in, and earmark their money to the media thingies of their choice, whether it’s Big TV Station or . . . The Saker. And that’s their budget–no advertising allowed, no NGO funding, they persuade the public to support them or they go broke. Police ’em to make sure they’re not taking money from weird sources. Result should be a media system dedicated to the needs of the many, not the few–structurally wired to be for the people. Such a media system won’t obey imperialist elites, but will hold the government to account as well if it starts going against the people.
A minor correction would have the heading read China, Bolivia and Venezuela are proof that social democracy no longer can thrive in the global capitalist order. Today, Western imperialism obviously can’t see any purpose with Social Democracy. Its main function was bribing the world’s metropolitan workforce with the proceeds of imperialism, hence achieving solid, reactionary social cohesion and consequently social peace where it mattered most.
Neoliberalism has since destroyed the West’s industrial and fiscal basis. Therefore, the only choice available to sustain the West is plunder, mayhem, and total lawlessness as we see in HongKong, Venezuela, Bolivia, etc.
JJB’s reasoning about the corporate media is very much on point. Really, if the corporate media explain that the sky is green and that this is Putin’s fault, lots of slobs will instantly fall in line. I think it’s a matter of imbecilification at the media consumers’ own discretion.
Humanity is already doomed, either to the greatest catastrophe in its history, or total extermination. The concatenation of economic collapse as end-stage neo-liberal capitalism creates unprecedented debt, poverty, inequality and elite wealth, ecological collapse in every parameter of life sustainability, and the Real Evil Empire’s unhinged aggression and global subversion as it attempts to maintain its Full Spectrum Dominance over all humanity, forever, is definitely terminal. All caused by the greatest force for Evil in history, ‘Western Civilization’ as exemplified by the USA, Israel and the zombie, two-headed, corpse of Little (and growing littler by the day)England.
Maybe, but it’s kind of a pointless position to take. It’s like nihilism; if you’re right, it doesn’t matter so there’s no point in saying it. And if you’re wrong, it gets in the way of efforts to salvage things.
True enough Purple, up to about twenty years ago. Today it’s too late. Not absolutely, because if we put every human resource to work decarbonising, downsizing and repairing biospheres, we might yet make it, after decades of concerted work unlike any other effort in history. But the ruling parasites and their denialist Dunning-Krugerite dupes will never allow that, so we are stuffed, It’s just a fact, I fear.
I’m sorry-I should have said ‘centuries of concerted work’, not decades. Perhaps we could turn the effort into a religion.
Mulga, What’s the real value of a human life? Please tell us?
Also they days how many Palestinians lives are worth a Jewish life?
Why do we even pretend that murder is wrong, when the world is ran by Murder, Inc.??
We’re all shocked when somebody is killed, yet millions are murdered every year by zio-anglo-nazi proxy wars, and they’re still God’s Chosen People
Not really sure we can blame USA/Israel people, when in fact most is ran from BIS(Basel), Vatican, Tel-Aviv, Beijing, Moscow, NYC/DC, CityOfLondon,Dubai/Saudi/Qatar; In fact the owners/rulers these days are most likely to be in their newly modeled bunker in New Zealand. The pattern here is where-ever the BIG money can be found, so can the assholes that order all the killings. Not much of this has a damn thing to do with “Western Civilization”, accept they’re going get the blame for the zio-anglo-nazi handiwork.
Rabbi Kook the Elder, the former Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi of Palestine summed up the Talmudic view- ‘There is a greater difference between the soul of a Jew and that of a non-Jew….then there is between the soul of a non-Jew and that of an animal’.
Nationalizing media is not the solution, that would end up being another layer to the problem.
Socialism does not end corruption, it only nationalizes it. Corruption exists both in Capitalist and Socialist countries.
So the solution is actually to destroy the mechanisms and people that enable that corruption so that the majority of people actually have their lives and standard of living improved. Want to win the hearts and minds of people? Increase their standard of living. It’s that simple. Putin’s Russia shows that. That is the base of his popularity in Russia, even against sanctions he finds ways to make the standard of living better for his people.
Don’t support a government because it is capitalist or socialist, support one that makes the lives of its people better.
Morales increased the standard of living with oh my god socialist methods, and look what that got him. No right-wingers like you post this because you are desperate to the fact that people will no longer tolerate you Ayn Rand American brand anti-social lunacy. People like you do need to be silenced and private media does need to be gotten rid of, media like banking should be nationalized.
Morales best successes where in regards to the economy. But he used a hybrid mix he referred to as Amazonian Capitalism, other referred to is as Evonomics. That is the truth, that is fact Mike.
Every system has its flaws and weaknesses and Morales did not tie himself to one set doctrine. That is fact.
Your statement “People like you do need to be silenced and private media does need to be gotten rid of, media like banking should be nationalized.” is proof that state media is a dangerous thing to embrace. The silencing of ideas contrary to your own is dictatorial be it left wing or right wing.
I do thank you for reinforcing my point.
Any society that shows that socialism can work to better the condition of the vast majority, while neo-liberal capitalism grinds populations into the mire, while enriching a tiny stratum of insatiably greedy blood-sucking parasites only, must be destroyed.
Morales handled the economy very well but he gets no credit for it. The Western media claims he is a “tyrant” in power since 2006 who should never have sought a 4th term. Well Angela Merkel has been in power since 2005 and is also seeking a 4th term. And all she gets is praise from the media. Go figure.
That is so true and he used smart socialist methods to do so, yet this goes over the heads of resident libertarian fascist like activepatriot, leo, or Zion Christian like milan.
Mike, as I stated above, Morales used a hybrid mix people called Evonomics to gain the success he did with the economy. Was not socialism or capitalism but a mix of the positives of both. Pretty good plan don’t you think?
Putin’s version of Russia has many similarities to this as well. Hong Kong’s success can be attributed to the same. China, itself, uses State-run capitalism to achieve the massive gains it has in the last 30 years.
Again, the core of the problem is corruption. Morales did fall short on that. Morales also fell short on buying into the environmental ideologies without fully thinking them through on his own. This is not saying that environmentalism is bad by any means, I’m saying we live in a real world where real issues and peoples livelihoods are affected by all these decisions and need to be recognized. We can’t all ride million dollar sailboats around to get from one country to another.
US main problem with Morales was he didn’t go along with their brand of corruption. US has no respect for sovereign nations and their right to self-determination. US problem is not capitalism, it is corruption within a government that is supposed to protect its people from runaway greed and exploitationism.
I will have to look up “Evonomics”. Thanks for the heads up Active Patriot. I only read that Evo did well.
I agree about your point regarding a hybrid economy. Economics is not religion and one can, and should, mix and match to achieve the desired results.
In the US: NPR (totally corrupted)
Just limit the overall market of any given media outlet.
I recall someone mentioning that the OWNER of a media outlet MUST live in the immediate area in which their media operates.
NGOs are a HUGE problem. This is quite clear given the US’s reliance on them to wreck havoc on other nations.
A Nationalised Media is not the cure-all in the information propaganda war on the People. It assumes that the Govt has the interest of its People as a consideration.
Ireland today is undergoing Weaponised Mass Migration, with the complicit support of its Regime, The regime has undermined the State Broadcaster RTE and it functions as a mouth piece of Govt Propaganda ,as do the various Radio Stations.
The population has increased by 20% in a short time ,when Ireland Birthrate is below sustainable levels.
35% of births are from foreign migrants.
The 3 Main Newspapers are owned by Oligarchs ,who benefit from Govt Contracts and so are on board with the propaganda.
The RTE TV Channel pushes a non-stop indoctrination policy of the benefits of multiculturism, diversity and inclusion.
TV panels are packed with those on board the migrant train,any dissenting voices are labelled racist and far right.
When the reality is that 95% of migrants are illegals, and their is serious crisis in the Housing, Health ,Education and infrastructure.
Dublin Sewage works and water supplies cannot cope with the increased population.
The rise in crime ,assaults ,rapes are off the scale ,but go unreported
To question this policy of Mass Migration, the demonization word Racist is immediately invoked and this usually shuts down any conversation on the mattter.
Ireland is Dystopia Central at present ,unlees the People awake from their Miasma.
Yet as the results show in Bolivia, allowing private oligarch owned media to continue to operate is a much greater folly and risk.
“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
Your version of “state controlled” media would silence my voice. Funny enough, it would silence your own as well. Easier to silence than to listen to competitive view points.
If Cuba, Venezuela and North Korea are examples of success for you, as a Brazilian I am very happy we avoided it
Yeah Honduras, Haiti, Paraguay are an example of succes, oh and if your so sure on how bad socialist are then you should have put that to the test by allowing Lula to run against wannabe Mussolini Bolsonaro. Right-wingers really are cowards by nature, and Brazil is going down thanks to the like’s of you.
Not a cure-all, but a significant step in the right direction, would be to bring back the federal Fairness Doctrine, dumped by Reagan back in the 80s.
Under that doctrine, political opinions broadcast during news programs would trigger the requirement that equal time be given for a response from the other side of the issue under discussion. Eliminating that requirement gave rise to Rush Limbaugh, his copycats and his dittoheads. Limbaugh could never have stood up against any intelligent, informed responses to any of his lies or idiocies, (he tried debating a couple of times and failed miserably) and could not have come into prominence until and unless the Fairness Doctrine had been eliminated.
