The Western World’s Joke: Decolonization

Hits: 1495

‘Blowing from a Gun’ depicted by Vasily Vereshchagin in his painting ‘Suppression of the Indian Revolt by the English’ on the rebellion of 1857. Queen Victoria’s agent bought this painting, in an attempt to suppress it. ‘Blowing from the Gun’ was a means of execution where the prisoner is tied to the muzzle of a cannon, which is then fired, popping the victim’s head about 15 meters (50 feet) into the air, apparently a sort of juvenile entertainment for the colonizers.

Following colonization, along came ‘decolonization’ and what do you suppose happened with colonial borders? They mostly remained as laid down by the colonizers. Where were the ‘decolonization’ rules written down? In the colonizers (western) international law. What is the economic system inherited by the colonized states? More or less, the colonizers system of western capitalism.

Whether it is the leadership of China wearing the western attire inherited from Karl Marx, The Native American ‘Business Council’ member in a coat and tie, or the numerous Black Africans suited up at the United Nations, the heritage of being colonized is in every direction one looks.

Colonization wasn’t only the physical presence of the ‘worst offenders’, that is Spaniards, Portuguese, Dutch, British, French, Germans  and Belgians, it was their ideas had dominated and continue to dominate. Colonialism isn’t over by a long shot.

The United Nations (especially) is a colonizing entity. NATO (especially) is a colonizing entity. The European Union (especially) is a colonizing entity. The United States (especially) is a colonizing entity. Multinational corporations (especially) are a colonizing entity. And finally (for the purposes of this essay, but not exhaustively), International Law is a colonizing entity.

The habit of the colonizers has been to create unnatural, or artificial organisms of ‘state’ with a tendency to internal cultural conflict and, consequently, a potential for civil strife that can be manipulated. Example given, this had been the USA creating a single or contiguous block(s) of land or ‘reservations’ for indigenous tribes with a history of mutual hostility, as in case of the Cheyenne and Crow tribes forcibly settled together, to preoccupy those peoples and deflect any immediate, ongoing aspiration to self-determination (of the Cheyenne, particularly) following conquest.

You see this general model, in one form or another, throughout the supposedly ‘decolonized’ present day world; whether Sunni/Shia Iraq or, more recently, ethnic Serb/Albanian Kosovo or Serb/Muslim/Croatian Bosnia, where ‘international law’ enforced borders sustain unnatural cultural entities of state.

This creates potential for exploitable tensions. The result? The ‘former’ colonial powers self-justifying ongoing colonizing behaviors, whether NATO manipulating and controlling the breakup of the former Yugoslavia or the European Union imposing its will on Serbia in a subsequent coercion into an EU compliant Serbian state, with Germany and allies the thinly concealed neo-colonial powers. Old habits die hard. Alternatively, old colonizing habits don’t actually die but are morphed into several disguise with a new face concealing the same old demonic forces. Psychopathic-criminal cultures-personalities do not voluntarily surrender their business models, whether individuals or, collective entities comprised of the same.

The history is succinct. From egalitarian ‘pre-civilized‘ societies…

“One [story tells] about the male sun falling out with the female moon before settling their differences over who should illuminate the sky by agreeing to share the duty, one during the day and the other during the night. The story promotes sex equality and co-operation between the sexes, which is common among forager societies”

…to the rise of civilization creating a class society creating instability through wealth inequality…

“In the largest study of its kind, the researchers saw disparities in wealth mount with the rise of agriculture, specifically the domestication of plants and large animals, and increased social organization

“Draft animals, which were not available in the New World, let richer farmers till more land and expand into new areas. This increased their wealth while ultimately creating a class of landless peasants”

We see the present day manifestation of this immediate preceding in the European Union driving multiple tens of thousands of farmers off their land with ‘sanitary requirements’ and other restrictions and changes, in Poland it had been estimated…

“According to estimates from the Polish Peasants’ party, only 600,000 of the country’s 2m[illion] farms will survive the process of joining the EU”

In Romania

“The harsh truth is that Europe has little to offer farmers as small as Mr Danci. A farm of his size is not viable and he faces the choice of merging his holding into a co-operative, or leaving the land

“The driving force for all these changes is EU regulation, not market forces, Mr Lesan said. His customers are perfectly content with cheese produced to Romanian standards.

“Maybe 45 per cent of my producers simply won’t be able to meet EU standards”

What the European Union is actually doing is destroying sovereignty related to food…

* Peasants (not food corporations) feed the world: 70% of the world’s population is fed by the Peasant Food Web, using only 25% of resources.
* Industrial food production fails to feed: Only 24% of the food produced by the Industrial Food Chain actually reaches people – the rest is wasted in meat production inefficiencies; lost in transport, storage and at the household; and diverted to non-food products.
* Industrial food costs us more: For every dollar spent on industrial food, it costs another 2 dollars to clean up the mess ($8.56 trillion dollars in waste and damages).
* Industrial food production uses 2-3 times more fossil energy (up to 9 times more in the case of rice).
* Industrial food production is responsible for 85-90% of all agricultural greenhouse gas emissions, loses 75 billion tonnes of soil annually, narrows crop genetic diversity by 75% (and livestock diversity from almost 9000 breeds to only 100 drawn from only 5 species), and accelerates nutritional decline between 5-40%, depending on the species/breeds.
* Industrial food production’s poisons fail to work – only 1-5% of chemicals applied actually hit the target. The rest end up polluting soil, water, air, and human and animal consumers

…leading towards future German initiated-dominated “United States of Europe” with proposals from 2013, 2014, 2016, & 2017 leading to greater development increasing the levels of violence…

“the degree of destructiveness increases with the increased development of civilization, rather than the opposite. Indeed, the picture of innate destructiveness fits history much better than prehistory” -Erich Fromm, The Anatomy of Human Destructiveness

…which we have seen from historical times, most recently centered in Europe and associated Euro-centric or European cultural based countries, NATO would be prime example. This recent history is a rather good match to early ‘civilized’ development of societies and resultant wealth inequality; creating a modern equivalent to a landless class typically harvested for soldiers, offering a modicum lift from poverty, but not the social violence. Poverty is a necessary component to prop up the privileged in the hierarchy. Conflict creates poverty and suborns the real wealth of stability to the benefit of the unstable and artificially wealthy.

As example, one can make an educated projection of Germany suborning Serbia’s development to Germany’s advantage based on both developmental history (with USA complicity, Konrad Adenauer was responsible for major Nazi war criminal pardons) and practical history of the Konrad Adenauer Siftung with an office in Belgrade

We cooperate with governmental institutions, political parties, civil society organizations and handpicked elites, building strong partnerships along the way. In particular we seek to intensify political cooperation in the area of development cooperation at the national and international levels on the foundations of our objectives and values”

…having essentially identical mission statement to Konrad Adenauer Siftung in Kiev…

The foundation supports democratic political parties in Ukraine and their youth organisations. Furthermore, our Kiev office provides a portal for Ukrainian politicians to maintain direct contacts to Germany and Europe. Additionally, an important part of our work is to foster young politicians and talented students”

…where it  has been established ‘color revolutionaries’ were not only educated by this ‘foundation’ aligned with Angela Merkel, but the same were known to be neo-fascists, Svoboda, a radical group, and actually (2014 coup) were put into power:

Party members appeared at events hosted by the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, the German political foundation affiliated with Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservatives. Examples include the conference entitled “Lessons from the 2012 Parliamentary Elections,” the seminar series called “The Higher School of Politics”

It’s hard to imagine the Konrad Adenauer Siftung’s ‘civil society’ promotion of…

…groups whose thuggish young legions still sport a swastika-like symbol, whose leaders have publicly praised many aspects of Nazism and who venerate the World War II nationalist leader Stepan Bandera, whose troops occasionally collaborated with Hitler’s and massacred thousands of Poles and Jews.

“But scarier than these parties’ whitewashing of the past are their plans for the future. They have openly advocated that no Russian language be taught in Ukrainian schools, that citizenship is only for those who pass Ukrainian language and culture exams, that only ethnic Ukrainians may adopt Ukrainian orphans and that new passports must identify their holders’ ethnicity — be it Ukrainian, Pole, Russian, Jew or other”

…foretells anything good for Serbia. This, and the fact of Germany’s dominant position within the European Union, enforcing its economic will on large states like France, cannot speak to future success for small states like Serbia.

This is neo-colonialism and it begins with destroying national sovereignty with creating dependence; the avenue taken will be European Union regulations robbing the poorest of opportunity to market and creating a destitute class of peasants – by driving the small farmers off their land.

Meanwhile, tensions can be easily exploited with culturally unnatural borders, a classic method of colonizers, to distract from the robberies taking place within. Serbia is not only ripe for this, with the existing Serb majority communities within the north of Kosovo and along but inside the border with Bosnia, examples given, now with agents provocateur causing problems by stirring resentments between Orthodox and Muslim populations, to the disadvantage of both; both communities are exploited. This is typical work coordinated within intelligence agencies fronted by ‘civil society’ organizations.

Based on the Konrad Adenauer Siftung’s support for, and training of, neo-fascists who came to power in Ukraine via coup, I have to close this essay/assessment with dark humor concerning that foundation’s message at their Serbia office website, recalling this specific language:

We cooperate with governmental institutions, political parties, civil society organizations and handpicked elites, building strong partnerships along the way

This preceding, quoted, language points to subversion of the Serbian intelligentsia or educated class. Well, in Germany, you’re nobody if you’re not a ‘doctor’ (PhD) and that is so great a truism of this culture represented in the Konrad Adenauer Siftung covertly colonizing Serbia, one popular method of getting there is fraud:

“He’ll exchange only as many anonymous emails as absolutely necessary with his clients, but he can read between the lines. “These are people who have absolutely no intellectual ambitions,” he says. “One can tell from their spelling errors that they would never be able to get a Ph.D. the normal way.” But Arnig makes sure that they get one anyway…

“The drive for academic titles has also revealed the dark underbelly of rampant doctoral fraud, even in the government’s highest circles. Just last week German Education Minister Annette Schavan had her doctoral title stripped and was forced to step down when her university ruled that parts of her doctoral dissertation had been plagiarized. Two years ago the same things happened to then German Defense Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, who was rumored to have used a ghostwriter himself”

Recalling the Germans are fanatic about not only beer but because of a con-man, Karl May, all things Indian; and having spent most of my life associated with authentic American Indians, I think there is little doubt why this new age doctor and total fraud sometimes working Germany…

…plagiarized her drumbeat, used for decades in her new age ceremony, from a 1960s beer commercial:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=8&v=PVq7IsExEJA

C’mon Serbia, if a new age guru-ette can successfully con the Germans at their own game of fraud, while raking in money like an itinerant big tent evangelist, and you don’t outsmart the Germans, I can only put my face in my hand and wonder what my conversation will be with my Serbian relatives.

The Myth of NATO’s “Humanitarian Intervention” in Kosovo (in 1999)
Some of those currently advocating bombing Syria turn for justification to their old faithful friend “humanitarian intervention”, one of the earliest examples of which was the 1999 US and NATO bombing campaign to stop ethnic cleansing and drive Serbian forces from Kosovo. However, a collective amnesia appears to have afflicted countless intelligent, well-meaning people, who are convinced that the US/NATO bombing took place after the mass forced deportation of ethnic Albanians from Kosovo was well underway; which is to say that the bombing was launched to stop this “ethnic cleansing”. In actuality, the systematic forced deportations of large numbers of people from Kosovo ...

Euromaidan: Anatomy of a Washington-Backed Coup d’Etat
In late November 2013, the ‘Euromaidan’ in Kiev began as a popular protest against a generalized state of corruption and cronyism in Ukraine. The spark that ostensibly ignited the protests was the inability of then President Yanukovych to sign an EU Association Agreement that would cut Ukraine’s economic and military ties to Russia in favor of a closer relationship with the EU and NATO. The EU had made the release of former Ukrainian prime minister and “gas princess” Tymoshenko a precondition for signing the agreement. But the fact that Tymoshenko was/is a convicted embezzler of state funds, combined with the rather ...

Today historians, anthropologists and archaeologists are revealing that information on this holocaust is being deliberately eliminated from the knowledge base and consciousness of North Americans and the world.

The Indo-European Iranian origin According to this contemporary explanation, Croats and Serbs were the people of the Iranian (the Sarmatian) origin, who migrated into the Balkans in the 7th century and subjected the Slavs there. However, in the course of time, they became totally slavicized (like proto-Turkic Bulgars who were settled on the Balkans between the Danube River ...
