WATCHING DARKNESS DESCEND IN THE INFORMATION AGE
Today the Israeli news service sent out an email broadcast, 87 US Senators affirmed unquestioning support for Israel in the wake of worldwide condemnation for Israeli actions against the Freedom Flotilla. In Australia, Prime Minister Rudd, after strongly admonishing Israel for counterfeiting Australian passports for use in political assassinations was removed from office, victim of a relentless media campaign orchestrated from Tel Aviv. How does this tell us we no longer live in democracies, the US, Australia, Britain, Germany and Canada?
What so many are seeing today is that democracy has really failed. Democratic governments, under attack for decades from within, have all become contaminated by their dependence on cash to finance elections, initially an excuse for “selling out.” Once special interests got a foot in the door, they began screening candidates and even, something we have more than a little evidence of, selecting leaders a generation ahead or more. A particular type was sought, intelligent, ambitious but deeply flawed, angry, resentful and subject to misjudgement. Thus, when mysterious candidates who never end up what they initially seem, come out of nowhere, drowning in cash, and move into the national spotlight, we see evidence of the thinly veiled dictatorships we now call democracies.
When those same candidates, all initially seen as the “guiding light” on the return to American greatness turn out to be hacks, Americans simply wait for the next deeply flawed, robotic malcontent to be elevated into the spotlight.
It doesn’t take a genius to notice that our current foreign policy is dictated by Tel Aviv. The basis for accepting the supremacy of Israeli interests over that of the United States is holocaust guilt, calculated Islamophobia promulgated by pop culture, the impression of a strategic alliance with Israel that secures the United States and a belief that Israel is a bastion of democracy that was brutally attacked in 1967 by massed invading armies of Arabs bent on the genocide of Jews around the world.
