When we discuss the West, we are speaking of those Internment Camps of the United States Of America, Canada and all of Europe and Australia. We are also going to include China since that country is similarly “Owned” by a tiny handful of Billionaires who control shares of the Private Central Banks as well as all of the Corporations. All of these countries will portray leaders to you but in fact they are not actual leaders but mere “masks” meant to lull the people into a false sense of Freedom that they do not have nor have had in these countries for decades. All Humans live in cities and towns. In order to experience a culture you must travel to where the people dwell as it is held by the people themselves and never by any governments. We will not discuss the situations in Africa or South East Asia as the Internment Camps in these regions are already essentially “Colonies” owned and controlled by the same Billionaires who own and control all the shares in the Central Banks and Corporations of the West. We will not discuss Eastern Europe or Russia.
In order to repair the West there are several measures that must be taken and they must be assumed by the people since the Internment Camps have no true governments but only “Masks”. Steps to be taken within the United States Of America must also be mirrored in Europe, Canada, China and Australia. So let us examine the U.S.A.
In the U.S.A. all non-violent criminals must be immediately released and their Records expunged. There are simply far too many innocent victims imprisoned there due to tens of thousands of absurd laws there that should not exist. All laws which relate to “Sex Crimes”(all consensual sex is good and all non-consensual sex is bad. Most non-violent Crimes which relate to recreational sex are consensual). Drugs (there is no logical reason for drug laws to exist), fraud (as all currency is utterly worthless it is impossible for fraud to exist, especially tax fraud). It has already been proven also that a considerable number of those innocent victims sent to jails for these offences are actually minorities (racial, religious, sexual) that have been specifically targeted. Any absurd Sex Offender Registries must also be expunged as there are no such crimes as “Sex Crimes”.
Join any and all your local Anarchist groups that you can find and create some if there are none active in your area. Remember that at this present moment on Earth there is no valid government beyond the municipal level. It is time to “remove the Masks” and the people must be the ones to do this.
If you are aboriginals, you must separate your tribal lands and create your own Sovereign Tribal Nations. There is no longer any reason for you to be subject to any “Mask” which demands your taxes solely to fund the military while neglecting not only your people but all the other citizens as well. In the U.S.A. there is no longer any ability to maintain the infrastructure of the country. This is the roads, bridges, rail lines, water/sewage treatment, power grids… all of these are decaying and falling apart. There is nothing that this government does for the people except deny them shelter, education/training, healthcare and even potable water and healthy food; not to mention free public transportation which should be a right. We all know that all currency is worthless.
These “Masks” exist in the U.S.A., Canada, China, Australia and all of the countries in Europe. We (the Servants Of The Light) hope to see the people embrace greater individual freedoms and demand Universal Law and Universal Rights that are being denied. When you eliminate all currency and privatization you close all Banks, Insurance Companies and Corporations and Stock Markets. Only then will it be possible to be free from that tiny handful of Billionaires who are actually controlling all of the governments of the “West”.
While we are speaking of the United States Of America… it has demonstrated it’s contempt for World. We all already know that the United Nations is a vapid non-governmental body made up of a few select veto-wielding Internment Camps and their Vassals which serves little purpose beyond the figurative.
The United States this week withdrew from the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), claiming that the organization was hypocritical, ineffective and biased against Israel. While the move was expected, it is yet another assault on the institutions of international order. The council is not perfect, but it is a venue for discussion and sanction of human rights violations. It is weaker without the U.S. Japan could seize this opportunity to again show international leadership; it is unlikely to do so.
The UNHRC is the successor to the U.N. Commission on Human Rights, which was dismissed as toothless. Established in 2006, the UNHRC is comprised of 47 U.N. member states who meet three times a year in regular session and whenever one-third of member states can agree on a special session. Members are elected for a three-year term on a regional basis, and cannot serve for more than two consecutive terms. Japan is currently a member of the UNHRC and served three previous terms.
The U.S. has had an uncomfortable relationship with the UNHRC since it was formed. The U.S. voted against its establishment, and then refused to join, arguing that it could do more working from the outside, although U.S. President George W. Bush said he would provide financial support. It obtained observer status but gave that up after two years, charging that the council was biased against Israel and focused on it rather than genuine human rights concerns elsewhere, such as Zimbabwe, North Korea, Iran, Belarus and Cuba. Washington reversed position under President Barack Obama, reasoning that the U.S. could better influence the workings of the council as a member.
The UNHRC has been a constant source of complaint for U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley. She argues that countries join the council to insulate themselves from criticism, turning it into a “protector of human rights abusers and a cesspool of political bias.” U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has been even more critical, calling it an “exercise in shameless hypocrisy, with many of the world’s worst human rights abuses going ignored, and some of the world’s most serious offenders sitting on the council itself.” Rather than protecting human rights, he argued, the council “enables human rights abuses by absolving wrongdoers through silence.”
The accusations are not unfounded. Fourteen of the UNHRC’s 47 members are rated as “not free” by Freedom House. Since it was established, the council has passed more than 70 resolutions critical of Israel, 10 times as many as criticized Iran. In remarks to the council as it opened its session this week, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson charged that the focus on Israel is “disproportionate and damaging to the cause of peace.” In fact, Israel is a standing item on the agenda — Item 7 — requiring its discussion at every session. Chief among U.S. demands is the elimination of that agenda item.
Haley has called for reform — and threatening U.S. withdrawal in its absence — for over a year. While some governments tried to work with the U.S. to reform the body, opposition has been fierce. Haley charged that countries joined the council just to undermine reform. “When we made it clear we would strongly pursue council reform, these countries came out of the woodwork to oppose it.” Failure of the most recent efforts prompted the U.S. withdrawal, but Haley noted that “Should it become reformed, we would be happy to rejoin.”
The U.S. decision has been rightfully condemned as short-sighted. There is ample evidence that the U.S. can better influence deliberations from within the council: After it joined, resolutions critical of Israel dropped by 80 percent. More significantly, however, withdrawal suggests that Washington is unconcerned about human rights abuses, overly concerned about criticism of Israel and hostile to international institutions in general.
Withdrawal creates a void in international leadership on this issue. Japan has stepped up in other areas where the U.S. has stepped back, most notably on economic policy; it could do so here. The “free and open Indo-Pacific” touted by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has a values component — a rules-based order — and Japan could use that as a springboard for a more assertive human rights policy. Tokyo is unlikely to do so, however.
Japan has long subordinated human rights to more strategic concerns, fearful that adherence to a values-oriented foreign policy risked antagonizing potential partners. That logic has prevailed, for example, in relations with Myanmar and Iran. A long list of Japanese governments has argued that it is better to maintain relations and use that to press for change, although there is little evidence of Japan prioritizing human rights behind closed doors. There is no point in building goodwill if it is never used. Neither Japanese pragmatism nor American petulance will serve the cause of human rights.
Still the U.S.A. must now be made an example of.
When is the World Going to Impose Sanctions on America?
Only when we are living in a world in which sanctions are imposed ‘on’ the United States rather than ‘by’ the United States will we know justice reigns.
The decision taken by the US Congress to “punish Russia” for alleged meddling in the US elections with the maintenance of existing sanctions has been followed by a billto weaken the ability of President Trump to “weaken sanctions on Russia,” thus presenting a direct challenge to the President’s authority. The bill was passed in the House of Representatives by an overwhelming majority and at time of writing awaits a hearing in the Senate, which along with the House makes up the US Congress. The legislation also includes new sanctions against not only Russia but also Iran and North Korea, thus maintaining the pattern of waging economic war against states which refuse to accept that Washington’s writ should run wherever it decides whenever it decides.
Economic sanctions are not the benign instrument that some might assume. On the contrary, they are tantamount to an act of war, a means by which economic might is wielded as club to bludgeon ‘recalcitrant’ nations and states into submission. And though sanctions may not evoke the same sense of potency of cruise missiles, they kill just the same. The experience of the Iraqi people leaves no doubt of it.
Between 1990 and 2003 sanctions on Iraq, imposed by the UN, are estimated to have been directly responsible for the deaths of 2 million people, half a million of them children according to Unicef. Multilateral sanctions were imposed on the country in response to Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait in August 1990. Under UN Security Council Resolution 661 it was mandated that UN-member states should prevent all imports originating in Iraq and Iraqi-occupied Kuwait, business activity between nationals of member states and Iraq, and should undertake an embargo of funds or “economic resources” to Iraq or Iraqi-occupied Kuwait, except for medical or humanitarian purposes.
As journalist John Pilger wrote in a March 2000 article:
“Under economic sanctions imposed by the United Nations Security Council almost 10 years ago, Iraq is denied equipment and expertise to clean up its contaminated battlefields, as Kuwait was cleaned up. At the same time, the Sanctions Committee in New York, dominated by the Americans and British, has blocked or delayed a range of vital equipment, chemotherapy drugs and even painkillers. ‘For us doctors,’ said Dr Al-Ali, ‘it is like torture. We see children die from the kind of cancers from which, given the right treatment, there is a good recovery rate.’ Three children died while I was there.”
The sanctions imposed on Iraq were so draconian and sustained that two UN Humanitarian Coordinators in Iraq, Denis Halliday and Hans von Sponeck, resigned in protest. Yet even with the evidence of the role of the sanctions in killing half a million Iraqi children, Washington remained unrepentant. The by now infamous words of former UN Secretary of State Madeleine Albright in 1996, when in response to a question during an interview about the infanticide that was taking place as a result of the sanctions she said “the price is worth it,” exposed the barbarity that lies behind the mask of Western civilization.
The fact the sanctions were only lifted from Iraq after the devastating war unleashed on the country by the US and its UK ally in 2003 had killed countless more children tells its own story.
Cuba has suffered under the iron heel of US economic sanctions and embargo longer than any other country on the planet. A raft of economic sanctions were originally imposed on the island in 1960 by the Eisenhower administration after the Cuban revolution of the previous year succeeded in toppling the US-supported dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista, after which US corporations and businesses that had been operating without restraint in Cuba were expropriated and nationalized.
Relations between Havana and Washington turned even more sour two years later when Fidel Castro defied Washington in forging close ties with the Soviet Union. In response, the Kennedy administration imposed complete economic sanctions, which have remained more or less in place over succeeding decades.
As French journalist Salim Lamrani pointed out in a 2016 interview on the history of US sanctions against Cuba:
“The sanctions are anachronistic because they date back to the Cold War. They are cruel because they affect the most vulnerable categories of the Cuban people, not the leaders. Finally, they are ineffective to the extent that the initial goal of overthrowing the Cuban Revolution has clearly failed.”
Most cogently, Lamrani makes the point that “Rather than isolating Cuba internationally, these sanctions have instead isolated the United States.”
The sanctions imposed by the US and its European allies/vassals on Russia, meanwhile, have been justified as a response to ‘Russian aggression’ in eastern Ukraine, along with reunification of of Crimea with Russia in 2014. As I have written previously, this is a false and tendentious rendering of what has occurred in Ukraine and why.
But regardless of the whys and wherefores, the idea that the largest country in Europe with the second most powerful military in the world, whose economy is stable and built on solid foundations, could ever be brought to its knees by economic sanctions is so preposterous it is laughable.
However the mendacity and arrogance behind Washington’s history of imposing economic sanctions against other states is certainly no laughing matter, not when we consider the ineffable human suffering they have caused and continue to cause.
Moreover, a history of subverting, destabilizing, and destroying one country after another is all the evidence needed to label the US a country so drunk with power and a corresponding sense of exceptionalism that the rest of the world would be more than justified in uniting to impose sanctions on it. In fact, given the brutal history of US imperialism the world needs to as a matter of necessity.
As Fidel Castro said, “The United States tyrannizes and pillages the globalized world with its political, economic, technological, and military might.”
We cannot expect to see any real action being taken against the United States Of America for anything it does because the same few Billionaires who own the Central Banks of U.S.A. and Canada also own the Central Banks of Europe. This is why no action is ever taken against them in the “West”. How else do you think it is that N.A.T.O. (North Atlantic Terrorist Organization) gets away with even half of the atrocities it commits against Human Rights all across the Globe as it shamelessly exports War (The U.S.A. alone has approx 189 military bases outside it’s own territories) while demanding to be left in peace at home.
It would seem that Global Anarchy must be left to the hands of the Anarchists. Let us begin to see much more of that.
