While we, like simple little dupes, are focused on the unlikely teaming up of the likes of Glenn Beck, World Can’t Wait, Lew Rockwell, Kim Dotcom (?) and Avaaz on the “Stand with Edward Snowden” non-disclosure “bombshells”, the world outside our castle walls is fighting for survival against the real enemy which is at the heart of all of this: neoliberal globalization.
Savage austerity, deregulation, unemployment and massive transfers of public wealth to the masters of the universe (the same masters who have created the non-disclosure distraction of Edward Snowden) are causing riots across the globe. Markets are falling, the dollar is dropping, and the Summer of our Discontent is upon us.
As the economic brick of neoliberal economics (Washington Consensus) is being slammed on every Westernized nation that still laughingly considers themselves a 1st World Nation, the people are moving in droves to oppose it. Our MSM is blind to it all. And what are we “alternative” journalists focused on? Coincidence?
When you stop to think for a moment, think about the fact that these people are protesting our neoliberal program created by the IMF and the World Bank and the financial sector of London and Wall Street, and then you remember that the NSA and CIA do nothing other than service to those very institutions, you start to understand part of what this distraction is all about.
