Why All Anti-Interventionists Will Necessarily Be Smeared As Russian Assets

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—This article is of course absurd. As we discussed recently, you will always see Russia on the same US foreign policy page as anti-interventionists like Tulsi Gabbard, because Russia, like so many other nations, opposes US interventionism. To treat this as some sort of shocking conspiracy instead of obvious and mundane is journalistic malpractice. There are many, many very good reasons to oppose the war agendas of the US-centralized empire, none of which have anything to do with having any loyalty to or sympathies for the Russian government.

Venezuela Coup Attempt Proves that Capitalism is a Cancer that Survives Through Violence and Propaganda

RAINER SHEA—This is what makes it ironic when American supporters of capitalism try to point to Venezuela as proof that socialism doesn’t work. Firstly, their claim completely misrepresents Venezuela’s political situation; Chavez and Maduro haven’t brought socialism, they’ve only reformed capitalism by enacting social welfare policies within the capitalist system.

SOUTHEAST ASIA TERRIBLY DAMAGED BUT LAUDED BY WEST

ANDRE VLTCHEK—The ‘hidden’ and extremely uncomfortable truth is: most of Southeast Asia is actually absolutely unfit for tourism. It is deeply, and terribly injured, even, a broken part of the world which has never been allowed to leave its brutal, feudal system behind. Its people are barely surviving in the straightjacket of extreme capitalism. All sorts of imported rubbish, from brainless pop music to the lowest grade of Hollywood films, junk food, mass media and ‘fashion’ as well as ‘me-me-me habits’ have been put to work in order to irreversibly ruin their traditional cultures. Generally, people here are unhappy; often thoroughly confused. Societies from Thailand to Indonesia and the Philippines are becoming increasingly violent.

Soros attacks Xi Jinping and China because they are free, democratic and prosperous.

JEFF J. BROWN—Again, the West is the best at psychological deflection/reflection, attacking its enemies for the exact same things it is doing, whether it’s true or not, so that at the dinner table and water cooler, its brainwashed citizens talk about all the supposedly horrible acts China, Russia, Iran and Venezuela are committing, and not about the reality of what their truly evil, genocidal governments are in fact perpetrating at home and around the world, costing millions of lives a year.
