Here’s how history might one day look back on the west’s democracy rackets of the last 15 years:
“In the early part of the 21st century, The Revolution Business really took off, as US-funded NGOs around the globe began to nibble away at the social and political foundations of countries all over the planet.
Consultants and ‘agents of change’ were dispatched to places like Georgia, the Ukraine, Tunisia and Egypt. Their task was to help build two kinds of mobs – virtual mobs on Twitter, as well as street mobs. The best part about it was that you can actually make money off of other nation’s misery and social strife. For ambitious young social entrepreneurs, if you could “get in there” with USAID, then you’d be in the chips, as it were.
For hapless activists and their shrewd nation-wrecking bosses in Washington, it was a charmed life of endless globe-trotting, transatlantic social justice junkets and promoting democracy worldwide. Life couldn’t be better.
