Mindsets trapped by American propaganda

The West can see itself and others only through the eyes of its own propaganda.

Political scientists understand that US electoral outcomes are determined by powerful monied interests that finance the political campaigns and that the bills Congress passes and the President signs are written by these interest groups to serve their narrow interests.

Such conclusions are dismissed as cynicism and do not alter the mindset.

[America has] a strange form of democracy that produces political outcomes that reward the few and punish the many, despite the energetic protests of the many.

And in the great American “democracy,” the president is to become a Caesar. [There is now] legislation before Congress that would give the current and future Presidents of the United States expanded war authority to use, on their own initiative, military force anywhere in the world independently of the restraints imposed by the US Constitution and international law.

[Excerpt of article by Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury]
