Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts has been on a roll lately.  On May 9th, Dr. Roberts wrote, "Americans Are Living in 1984":
I believe that “al Qaeda” could blow up the White House or Congress or both and that the majority of Americans would fall for the story, just as the Germans, a better educated and more intelligent population, fell for the Reichstag Fire--as did a number of historians.

The reason I say this is that Americans have succumbed to propaganda that has conditioned them to believe that they are under attack by practically omnipotent adversaries. Proof of this is broadcast every day. For example, on March 9, I heard over National Public Radio in Atlanta that Emory University, a private university of some distinction, treated its 3,500 graduating class to a commencement address by Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland Security.

This is the agency that has goons feeling the genitals of young children and adults and which has announced that it intends to expand this practice from air travelers to shopping malls, bus and train stations. That a serious university invited such a low-lifer, who clearly has no respect for American civil liberty and is devoid of any sort of sense of what is appropriate, to address a graduating class of southern elite is a clear indication that the Ministry of Truth has prevailed. Americans are living in George Orwell’s 1984.

For those who haven’t read Orwell’s classic prediction of our time, Big Brother, the government, could tell the “citizens” any lie and it was accepted unquestioningly. As a perceptive reader pointed out to me, we Americans, with our “free press,” are at this point today: “What is really alarming is the increasingly arrogant sloppiness of these lies, as though the government has become so profoundly confident of its ability to deceive people that they make virtually no effort to even appear credible.”

A people as gullible as Americans have no future.
And he's 100% spot on here.  Americans are living in a fantasyland, an artificial reality created by the Jewish owned, operated and controlled media that serves a particular agenda, often referred to as the New World Order.  I think it's more accurately described as a global fascist political and economic organization of society, with those at the very top controlling virtually all means of production.  What they've allowed with the creation of the internet is a method for the masses to educate themselves on these subjects, and potentially organize to fight this pursuit of total dictatorship being carried out by the global power elite.

What is often left out of this discussion is the fact that Zionist Jews are largely behind this push for global fascism, and are the most organized and powerful faction in the global power elite.  Understanding this is crucial to understanding the bigger picture.

Writing on May 12th, Dr. Roberts discusses his experience on the BBC World Service program, and how the West is utterly trapped in it's own propaganda and distorted image:
I startled the program’s host when I compared Hillary’s remarks to the pot calling the kettle black. I was somewhat taken aback myself by the British BBC program host’s rush to America’s defense and wondered about it as the program continued. Surely, he had heard about Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo detainees, CIA secret torture prisons sprinkled around the world, invasion and destruction of Iraq on the basis of lies and deceptions, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Libya. Surely, he was aware of Hillary’s hypocrisy as she demonized China but turned a blind eye to Israel, Mubarak, Bahrain and the Saudis. China’s record is not perfect, but is it this bad? Why wasn’t the Chinese Minister for Foreign Affairs criticizing America’s human rights abuses and rigged elections? How come China minds its own business and we don’t?

These questions didn’t go down well. None of the other interviewees or guests thought that Hilary had made a good decision, but even the Chinese guests were not free of the common mindset that frames every issue from the standpoint that the West is the standard by which the rest of the world is judged. By pointing out our own shortcomings, I was challenging that standard. The host and other guests could not escape from the restraints imposed on thought by the role of the West as world standard.

What has happened to the West is that it can see itself and others only through the eyes of its own propaganda.
It's time to wake up from this artificial reality, and escape the propaganda and nonsense coming from the state, which is reinforced through the media.

  1. Mubarak is mentioned. Egypt was doing well under Mubarak. Now Egypt is much poorer and more violent as a result of the CIA toppling Mubarak. Yet most people believe the idea, put about by the CIA, that it was good to have Mubarak removed.

  2. Hey Anon, I don't doubt you.

    However, Mubarak was certainly a tyrant, who used his power and influence to enrich himself and his cronies, like virtually any leader in a position of power does in any country. Also, he seemed to bow down to the Israelis, which wasn't good for the people of Egypt.

    Western intelligence agencies and NGOs with strong ties to Western governments and intelligence agencies have certainly played a major role in bringing about and instigating the various "revolutions" in the Middle East, including Egypt. And they seem to be stirring up trouble as we speak. I am against foreign interference of any form (especially covertly) in any country.
