How Fascism Won Control in “The West”

Hits: 582

“The West” is the nations that are essentially controlled, basically dictated-to, by America’s approximately 600 billionaires, who control the U.S. Government, by coordinatedly funding (through their news-media and political donations, and also by their members-only private conferences) the careers of cooperative politicians, and who thereby defeat the politicians who act against increasing the percentage of the nation’s wealth that these few people hold, and against increasing their extractions from everybody else. (Those non-compliant politicians are derisively called “socialists” and equated with the communist Joseph Stalin instead of with the democratic socialist FDR and the leaders of the democratic socialist Scandinavian countries; and America’s dumbest voters, who always tip the ‘democratic’ balance favoring the billionaires’ propaganda, believe this propaganda from these billionaires’ organizations, which equate “socialism” with “communism,” and they think that they live in a democracy, which they don’t. Their beliefs are false both about history and about ideology.)

These billionaires cannot control the world and thereby extract from more and more of it, unless they control a global military that serves as their international enforcement arm in a world where ‘international law’ has no enforcement arm and so these approximately 600 individuals basically write and enforce (by their Government’s invasions and threats of invasions) the real “international law,” which is whatever the U.S. Government — their Government — does and dictates. Consequently, while there was enforcement against Yugoslavia’s Slobodan Milosevic, even though the International Court of Justice finally ruled that The West’s chief allegations against him were lies, and there is enforcement against Julian Assange, even though he did nothing that The Establishment’s own New York Times and others had not done, during the decades prior to the U.S. Government’s becoming the locked-down dictatorship that it is today (having the world’s highest percentage of its citizens in prison); yet there still is no actual enforcement, at all, against George W. Bush for actually invading and destroying Iraq on the basis only of lies, and Afghanistan mainly on the basis of lies, nor against Barack Obama for destroying Libya, Syria, Ukraine, Honduras, Venezuela, and Yemen, also on the basis only of lies, nor against Donald Trump for continuing and worsening his predecessors’ invasions and intensifying especially against Iran. Trump intensifies against Iran because he is funded by different American billionaires than Obama was — billionaires who especially want to destroy and take over Iran. He intensifies against Venezuela for the same reason.  But the basic agenda is the same.

How did this fascist America, the world’s most militarized and policed dictatorship, come to be?

Before this question can be sensibly addressed, a reader must first recognize and acknowledge that today’s U.S. is, indeed, that extraordinarily bad (at least internationally), because otherwise this question cannot even exist — it cannot be posed, much less considered. Almost in every instance during the past 20 years in which a country that had not invaded the country that was invading it was being invaded by the U.S., sometimes accompanied by UK or others of its international partners-in-crimes. Therefore, the billionaires’ ‘news’-media and scholars simply refuse to acknowledge that the democratic principles which are stated in America’s Constitution have become essentially null and void, empty platitudes, in today’s America — now only formally a democracy (since amending the Constitution is no longer even necessary, in an actual dictatorship).

But can such a collective dictatorship actually exist? Doesn’t a dictator have to be one person? Is a corporation one person? Of course not. A corporation is its controlling owners, which can be one person, but it also can be a collection of them, each being represented on its board. The number of dictators a nation has is irrelevant. Similarly, the number of parties a nation has is irrelevant to the question if whether or not it is a dictatorship.

Throughout history, most dictatorships have been collective, and were called “aristocracies.” Furthermore, most aristocracies have been led by a monarch. Not every monarch is “absolute” or the actual dictator; in most aristocracies, the collective — the aristocracy itself — is the dictator.

Wherever an aristocracy exists as a ruling collective, it normally is an aristocracy of wealth; but, when a predominant clergy rule the country, the dictatorship is called a “theocracy,” and this is not the type of aristocracy that rules the United States. America definitely has an aristocracy of wealth, and they definitely do rule, in this country. (Here is how they exercise their rule.)

The fact that this fact can be published in this country does not prove that this country isn’t a dictatorship, because all of the major news-media receive my articles for publication and none publish them any longer; my writings are blacklisted in America and throughout its empire. Anyone who is reading this anywhere in the empire is reading a blacklisted news-medium. It is blacklisted because it is too true. No billionaire is going to publish this. It is America’s type of samizdat.

Therefore: How did fascism win control in The West?

The process started on 26 July 1945, and it gradually expanded from there until 24 February 1990 when the Soviet Union and its communism and its Warsaw Pact mirror-image of America’s anti-Russian military alliance NATO all were about to end and George Herbert Walker Bush started instructing his foreign vassals privately and in secret to continue the Cold War in their countries until Russia itself will be defeated and controlled from Washington.

This is a military dictatorship also, because though it is hidden, the reality is that America spends annually around half of the entire world’s military budget, and tens of trillions of dollars have been ‘lost’ (perhaps to firms such as Lockheed Martin) in the portion of America’s military expenditures that are made public (consequently, even that “half” might be an understatment of the true expense of America’s military, if those unaccountable-for funds are included). So, U.S. taxpayers fund this enormous global military, for the benefit of America’s billionaires and of their foreign allies or vassals. Details of this operation have been provided in books such as Whiteout and The Secret Team. Regarding the enforcement of this barbaric regime upon third-world countries, an outstanding book is Confessions of an Economic Hit Man. The aristocracy allow their publishers to accept a few such honest history books, so long as those books are not topical to today’s news (as the present article is). And if the few honest history books had been marketed as intensively as the propaganda is, then they might have had an impact.

Furthermore, there are vast literatures showing how this dictatorship carries out its domestic policies, which policies are likewise bipartisanly supportive of extracting from the public to the billionaires, such as America’s current coronavirus bailouts are: they provide $500 billion to large corporations versus $150 billion to state and local governments and no specified total allocated to fund the benefits to ordinary Americans (perhaps so as to hide how small that total is in relation to the benefits that are being doled out to billionaires). Moreover, for megacorporations and investors, the Federal Reserve is providing bailouts even larger than the announced $2 trillion initial ‘rescue package’, and of multiple types, some of them illegal (but thbose laws aren’t enforced). So, whatever the man-in-the-street (on Main Street), might get, the man on Wall Street would be receiving huge multiples of that. Both of the political Parties are controlled by billionaires; so, no part of the Establishment wants any basic change. Only an outright revolution could provide such change — eliminate the aristocracy — and America’s public don’t want it. Instead, Americans respect the aristocracy.

If this is “democracy,” then what does “fascism” even mean, other than a PR buzzword to ‘justify’ this situation?

The U.S. Pushed North Korea to Build Nukes?
Let’s say you know someone who wears funny blue suits and doesn’t share your views on politics.

And when he sits quietly on the cage-floor with his hands folded, you ignore him altogether and deal with other matters.

Why NATO/US’s “Collateral Damage” and “Errors” are not a War Crime?
Many innocent civilians were killed in American military interventions around the world – from Vietnam and Serbia to Iran and Afghanistan, because of the alleged “errors” or “collateral damage” – without consequences for civil and military leadership. In addition to political, military and every other power, Americans secured itself with legal mechanisms.Twenty-two civilians, wounded and doctors, among them three children, were killed in the American bombing of a hospital in the Afghan city of Kunduz. Americans acknowledged the error and apologized. The President of the United States expressed his condolences, the military leadership announced three independent investigations. “Doctors without borders” ...

“Responsibility To Protect” (R2P) was not Valid in Kosovo and isn’t Valid in Ukraine
The same arguments used to justify a western ‘humanitarian intervention’ in Kosovo in 1999 could be used to support a Russian intervention in Ukraine. This article originally appeared at Irrussianality Yesterday, I gave a talk on ‘The Folly of Military Intervention’ at McGill University. Afterwards, one of the students asked me a question about parallels between the wars in Kosovo in 1999 and Ukraine in 2014/15. As I answered, I found myself thinking about the scale of the humanitarian crises in both cases and what this means for supporters of so-called ‘humanitarian intervention’. In 1999, NATO aircraft bombed Yugoslavia for three months. The aim, ...

How the West Built a Failed State in Kosovo
Since NATO’s intervention in 1999, Kosovo has been the subject of an unprecedented degree of international supervision. UNMIK, EULEX and K-FOR were afforded extensive, and essentially unaccountable, powers to maintain law and order and regulate Kosovo’s economy, judiciary and political system. In per capita terms, Kosovo has received the largest flow of aid ever distributed to a developing country: the international community put twenty-five times more money and fifty times more troops on a per capita basis into post-conflict Kosovo than into post-conflict Afghanistan.Regularly heralded as a success story, Kosovo is championed by some as proof that not all projects ...

America and the Great Abdication: Don’t Mistake Donald Trump’s Withdrawal from the World for Isolationism
When great powers fade, as they inevitably must, it’s normally for one of two reasons. Some powers exhaust themselves through overreach abroad, underinvestment at home, or a mixture of the two. This was the case for the Soviet Union. Other powers lose their privileged position with the emergence of new, stronger powers. This describes what happened with France and Great Britain in the case of Germany’s emergence after World War I and, more benignly, with the European powers and the rise of the United States during and after World War II.To some extent America is facing a version of this—amid ...

The Sickness of American Foreign Policy
The Military-Industrial Complex runs U.S. foreign policies. What passes for international 'news' reporting in the United States media was supremely represented by the instance of those 'news' media stenographically reporting the Government's lies about 'Saddam's WMD', even after it was unarguably clear that those were just blatant lies from the President and his Administration. America's media were merely passive megaphones for the regime's lies. Instead of disproving the regime's lies — as they could have done if they were journalistic, instead of propagandistic, media — they merely reported the lying government's assertions. It was like 1984 "Big Brother"; and it ...

The US: The Century of Lost Wars
Introduction Despite having the biggest military budget in the world, five times larger than the next six countries, the largest number of military bases – over 180 – in the world and the most expensive military industrial complex, the US has failed to win a single war in the 21st century. In this paper we will enumerate the wars and proceed to analyze why, despite the powerful material basis for wars, it has led to failures. The Lost Wars The US has been engaged in multiple wars and coups since the beginning of the 21st century.  These include Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Palestine, Venezuela and ...

American Pravda: How the CIA Invented “Conspiracy Theories”
A year or two ago, I saw the much-touted science fiction film Interstellar, and although the plot wasn’t any good, one early scene was quite amusing. For various reasons, the American government of the future claimed that our Moon Landings of the late 1960s had been faked, a trick aimed at winning the Cold War by bankrupting Russia into fruitless space efforts of its own. This inversion of historical reality was accepted as true by nearly everyone, and those few people who claimed that Neil Armstrong had indeed set foot on the Moon were universally ridiculed as “crazy conspiracy theorists.” ...

How the US Empire Was Made in North Korea
Over the past 15 years, fighting-talk has periodically flared over ‘what to do about that alleged “crazy Asian dictator”   in North Korea. Today’s round of brinkmanship by the US/Western ‘deep state’ against North Korea will – in all probability – unfold the same way as in previous episodes; it will fizzle out. China is a guarantor of North Korean security, so the US will not go to war with North Korea. Period. The battle between Trump and the Washington Crazies for control of the reins of empire continues, however, and the ‘Krazy Korean’ is relevant to that. I hope ...

NATO Doesn’t Care that Montenegro is a Haven for Crime and Corruption
There was international jubilation when Montenegro seceded from its union with Serbia in 2006 after a controversial referendum. The Referendum Law prevented Montenegrins living and registered in Serbia from voting in the referendum, ensuring that tens of thousands of Montenegrins, in a country of only 622,000, who would have voted to remain the union could not vote in favour of maintaining it.It must be remembered that state-paid workers like teachers and police were told by the Democratic Party of Socialists (DPS) leader Miodrag Vuković before the referendum May 2006, that someone “cannot work for the state and vote against it,” something objectively ...

Individuals like David Irving, who have claimed that “disease” not homicidal gas chambers, killed the victims of Auschwitz and other concentration camps, have been fined and imprisoned.

Conflicts among Churchgoers in Ukraine – Non-Peaceful Transfers to the OCU not Covered by Media and State
Interactive maps at several websites show that within three months there have been more than 500 voluntary transfers of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church – Moscow Patriarchate's (UOC-MP) parishes to the Orthodox Church of Ukraine recently created by Patriarch Bartholomew and president Poroshenko. The UOC-MP parishes total 12,000, so this is a significant value. However, according to the OHCHR Report on the human rights situation in Ukraine from 16 November 2018 to 15 February 2019, not all of these transfers were voluntary – in some cases they were undertaken by local authorities or far-right organizations, and those members of the UOC-MP ...

Neocon Imperialism, 9/11, and the Attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq
One way to understand the effect of 9/11, in most general terms, is to see that it allowed the agenda developed in the 1990s by neoconservatives—-often called simply “neocons”—to be implemented. There is agreement on this point across the political spectrum. From the right, for example, Stefan Halper and Jonathan Clarke say that 9/11 allowed the “preexisting ideological agenda” of the neoconservatives to be “taken off the shelf . . . and relabeled as the response to terror.”1 Stephen Sniegoski, writing from the left, says that “it was only the traumatic effects of the 9/11 terrorism that enabled the agenda ...
