Corruption of American Democracy

February 15, 2012

As a not particularly credible trader once infamously (but correctly) claimed live on the BBC: “The governments don’t rule the world; Goldman Sachs rules the world”. And not only Goldman Sachs, but also the other top banks and financial institutions, big corporations and certain billionaires. The Democrat versus Republican narrative is utterly out of touch […]

America the Oligarchy – Thank God it’s not a Democracy!

June 27, 2011

Check out this interesting lesson on the basic forms of government and where the United States fits in. Did you know the word ‘Democracy’ does not appear in the Declaration of Independence nor the United States Constitution? The founding fathers did everything they could to keep America from having a democracy.

Arab Spring certainly not the first democratic movement in Muslim world

June 26, 2011

The Arab-Islamic world has a long history of democracy –democracy which is regularly crushed by western force. In 1953 Iran had a parliamentary system, the US and Britain overthrew it. There was a revolution in Iraq in 1958, we don’t know where it would have gone, but it could have been democratic. The US basically […]

Another side of Muammar Gaddafi of Libya

March 3, 2011

Pravda offers a novel opinion about Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, different than Western spin: The daily media attack on the leader Muammar Gaddafi is one more terrorist strategy of the government of the United States of America to recover influence in the Arab world. How can you call someone a dictator who overthrew a […]

Revolution in Egypt bad news for Jews of Israel

February 16, 2011

The view from Israel is that the Tunisian and Egyptian revolutions are bad, very bad. Educated Arabs — not all of them dressed as “Islamists,” quite a few of them speaking perfect English whose wish for democracy is articulated without resorting to “anti-Western” rhetoric — are bad for Israel. The images that moved and enthused […]

The need to democratize Western societies and claim control of our foreign policy

February 7, 2011

With respect to the Egyptian revolution, the discussion here in the West should focus on the factor we are responsible for and can influence – the role our governments have played in suppressing the Egyptian people. Your taxes have been used to arm, fund and fuel this dictatorship. You have unwittingly helped to keep these […]

Washington’s policy toward democracy in Haiti

January 21, 2011

Haiti’s infamous dictator “Baby Doc” Duvalier returned to his country this week, while the country’s first elected President, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, is kept out. These two facts really say everything about Washington’s policy toward Haiti, and our government’s respect for democracy in that country and in the region. Asked about the return of Duvalier, who had […]

Election money in the plutocracy that masquerades as democracy

January 16, 2011

In elections, money may not guarantee victory, but a serious lack of it almost always guarantees defeat. According to a Public Citizen report on the 2010 midterm elections, in 58 of the 74 contests in which power changed hands, the winning candidates rode enormous waves of cash, outspending their opponents with funds from “shadowy front […]

Fascism through corporate control of government

November 15, 2010

Though the precise definition of Fascism may be argued, I am talking here of Fascism as defined as the corporate control of government. Or as the Godfather of Fascism, Benito Mussolini, once summed it up: “Fascism should more properly be called corporatism, since it is the merger of state and corporate power.” In the early […]

The economic crisis creates major demand for change

November 1, 2010

Years of government and media propaganda in America has given the people in America a false vision of what democracy should look like. At this particular point in U.S. history, most of the people in this country are not sharing in the wealth of our immensely rich nation. Eighty percent of our population jointly shares […]
