Submitted by Paul Craig Roberts,

It took two decades for Russia and China to understand that “pro-democracy” and “human rights” organizations operating within their countries were subversive organizations funded by the US Department of State and a collection of private American foundations organized by Washington. The real purpose of these non-governmental organizations (NGOs) is to advance Washington’s hegemony by destabilizing the two countries capable of resisting US hegemony.

Washington’s Fifth Columns pulled off “color revolutions” in former Russian provinces, such as Georgia, the birthplace of Joseph Stalin and Ukraine, a Russian province for centuries.

When Putin was last elected, Washington was able to use its Fifth Columns to pour thousands of protesters into the streets of Russia claiming that Putin had “stolen the election.” This American propaganda had no effect on Russia, where the citizen back their president by 89%. The other 11% consists almost entirely of Russians who believe Putin is too soft toward the West’s aggression. This minority supports Putin as well. They only want him to be tougher. The actual percentage of the population that Washington has been able to turn into treasonous agents is only 2-3 percent of the population. These traitors are the “Westerners,” the “Atlantic integrationists,” who are willing for their country to be an American vassal state in exchange for money. Paid to them, of course.

But Washington’s ability to put its Fifth Columns into the streets of Moscow had an effect on insouciant Americans and Europeans. Many Westerners today believe that Putin stole his election and is intent on using his office to rebuild the Soviet Empire and to crush the West. Not that crushing the West would be a difficult thing to do. The West has pretty much already crushed itself.

China, obsessed with becoming rich, has been an easy mark for Washington. The Rockefeller Foundation is supporting pro-American Chinese professors in the universities. US corporations operating in China create superfluous “boards” to which the relatives of the ruling political class are appointed and paid high “directors’s fees.” This compromises the loyalty of the Chinese ruling class.

Hoping to have compromised the Chinese ruling class with money, Washington then launched its Hong Kong NGOs in protests, hoping that the protests would spread into China and that the ruling class, bought with American money, would be slow to see the danger.

Russia and China finally caught on. It is amazing that the governments of the two countries that Washington regards as “threats” were so tolerant of foreign-financed NGOs for so long. The Russian and Chinese toleration of Washington’s Fifth Columns must have greatly encouraged the American neoconservatives, thus pushing the world closer to conflict.

But as they say, all good things come to an end.

The Saker reports that China finally has acted to protect itself from Washington’s subversion: http://www.vineyardsaker.co.nz/2015/07/30/chinas-ngo-law-countering-western-soft-power-and-subversion-by-eric-draitser/

Russia, also, has acted in her defense: http://www.globalresearch.ca/kicked-out-of-russia-moscow-challenges-washingtons-orwellian-national-endowment-for-democracy/5466082

Also: http://www.globalresearch.ca/why-russia-shut-down-national-endowment-for-democracy-ned-fronts/5466119

We Americans need to be humble, not arrogant. We need to acknowledge that American living standards, except for the favored One Percent, are in long-term decline and have been for two decades. If life on earth is to continue, Americans need to understand that it is not Russia and China, any more than it was Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi, Assad, Yemen, Pakistan, and Somalia, that are threats to the US. The threat to the US resides entirely in the crazed neoconservative ideology of Washington’s hegemony over the world and over the American people.

This arrogant goal commits the US and its vassal states to nuclear war.

If Americans were to wake up, would they be able to do anything about their out-of-control-government? Are Europeans, having experienced the devastating results of World War I and World War II, capable of understanding that the incredible damage done to Europe in those wars is minuscule compared to the damage from nuclear war?

If the EU were an intelligent and independent government, the EU would absolutely forbid any member country from hosting a US anti-ballistic missile or any other military base anywhere close to Russia’s borders.

The Eastern European lobby groups in Washington want revenge on the Soviet Union, an entity that is no longer with us. The hatred transmits to Russia. Russia has done nothing except to have failed to read the Wolfowitz Doctrine and to realize that Washington intends to rule the world, which requires prevailing over Russia and China.

Obama is an American Gorbachev. They both are POS. The oligarchy that put them both in power intended for some changes to enrich themselves. However, the oligarchy is always arrogant and always miscalculates the consequences of their “progressive” changes.

Obama promised us “Change and Hope”. Unfortunately, he has delivered only Change and killed any Hope we might have!

I’d rather say, Hillary Clinton is the American Imelda Marcos.

Gorbatchev has made terrible mistakes  but at least he was and is a decent man. He lacks the onanistic self-fixation of Obama  – who one day will drown in his own stinking narcisstic outhouse.

A collapse would be a good thing. US could restart and get rid of its toxic 0.1% and mind its own business thence.

The world could breath again, liberated from the worst empire of terror humankind allowed to form.

But too strong is its craving for domination and destructon.

I can’t help but think of the “Paulistinians” (Neocon term for Ron Paul people) who were actively pointing out how a tiny neocon minority was playing the majority for fools. This was 2012-2014 when they took over the Iowa GOP. AJ Spiker was the one leading it. Once the word just started to get around that the Christians were waking up to the US-caused slaughter of their Middle Eastern brethren (Egyptian Copts for example), GOP National couldn’t move hard enough or fast enough to get him out of power, or to get the Liberty conservatives out of the state house.

IOW, without the 90+% of Americans blaming each other and foreigners, the tree of liberty would be pretty well watered, indeed.

Nope. US has ultimately no substance it can draw on.

The world  has allowed the US to accumulate WMD and to build up a miltary able to destroy anything it deems fashionable. US confuses this with “strength”.

I think PCR is one of the more cogent thinkers of our time, but he fails to call out clearly the fact that “Washington hegemony” has nothing to do with Washington, DC, and everything to do with the oligarchs, bankers, etc who have no national borders or loyalty.   Yes, they use DC and its power, but it has little to do with America as a country.  And it would be useful to mention Isreal and its role in the analysis as well.

Most folks do not realize how terribly close to the edge we have come.

I lost a friendship awhile back with a fellow… bright, successful… all because I raised this subject. That, and I happened to mention that when a society openly embraces homosexuality it is a sure sign of impending doom. Turns out his daughter was a lesbian… according to my daughters. The fact is I have no feelings regarding what folks do in their own homes… well, within reason… I would object if they were burying bodies in the basement for example.

But the point is, and this gentleman is not alone. People have come to believe they can make the world whatever they want it to be. This is always the case when a society is on the verge of self destructing.

The big difference this time… and this time is different in many ways… is that we will take the rest of the world with us…

I wouldn’t say just homosexuality, Lordflin. It is, generally, celebration and love of obscenity and turmoil.

The rot has spread to other societies. Family and value centric nations, brought to their knees.

I don’t know either of you gentlemen or what is in your minds.

But, yes, I think we do have big expectations from Hollywood, from political statements, from an Engineered Education in K-12, and from the Damn TV.

I could have used some relationships in K-12 with Adults who were not too busy fulfilling their egos and needs… but I just got the Default Condition.

Screw it.

Yeah I have some expectation and I live in a pretty good town, but I live in a clear Collective System.

There are many man-made forces that inform and command you what to think, wear, eat, feel, do, fear. It is all a measure of how willingly and cheerfully we engrain ourselves in our own delusions.

Homosexuality is the contemporary, obvious sin. However, there is no shortage of non-obvious sins.

I’ve been giving this some thought in terms of “If I wanted to build a museum of the Decline, where would I start?”

On marriage, it would most likely start with the idea of putting on a good face even as there’s trouble at home. For a while I was mentored by a leader of the anti-marriage movement (which I later left), but he explained to me his #1 motivation was his brother’s divorce. I know of a few LGBTs who did not have great home lives, even though their parents put on great smiles. No-fault divorce and ‘free love’ were heralded as solutions, and this was the State’s foot in the door to redefine marriage as it sees fit. Taking away all fatherly authority by incentivizing children to cry abuse (when I was a kid my friends threatened to call DFACS on their parents to avoid spankings) was another step. Each redefinition since is just a doubling down on the same wrong response to the real problem.

Fundamentally, the single basic problem is that man is not God, but instead of accepting this, he tries to become a god. IOW, the power to get one’s way all the time, no exceptions. CS Lewis accurately predicted the impossibility of such an outcome, and that in reality, an elite would get to ‘play god’ while the masses were helpless against their whims. In the 21st century we have gone backwards ~4,000 years to the Pharaoah god-kings.

Anyway, until it finally collapses, the next wedge issue is non-sexual third genders. If you have young kids, before they graduate high school they will be instructed to start using ‘zir’ or ‘xer’ instead of him or her. Even basic language will come under attack and be a yardstick for allegiance. It’s almost like they see kids as carnival balloons and want to see what shapes they can be twisted into.

I don’t think I’m a homophobe.  I got mixed up in a gay wedding and wound up the maid of honor for a former employee.  All in good fun, I don’t care what consenting adults do to each other.

BUT, that attitude, as I examine it, is the reason we’ve launched our decline.  I DON’T CARE.

Decent peole got rubbed and chaffed over the last thirty years and it got to the point that I DON”T CARE.

Porn invaded our lives on the internet, and is rapidly gaining acceptance on television, and I DON”T CARE.

The Pope is a communist, pedophilia apologist…and I DON”T CARE.

Our government devolved into a putrid mix of oligarchs and psychopaths, and while I care, I DON’T CARE enough to do anything about it.

I learned that our money system is a complete fraud and I DON’T CARE.  I just try to offset it, instead of insisting on it being fixed.

I know that banks are the supreme thieves of the ages, and I DON’T CARE…I minimize my exposure to them.

Millions of americans are homeless and destitute, and I DON’T CARE.  Though I will always feed anyone in front of me that is hungry and make donations to local charities.  But I’m not going out of my way to fix their condition.

We have national elections and I look at the psychopathic assholes involved and I DON’T CARE.

I’ve watched as schools have dumbed down our kids to mindless drones and, other than my grandson, I DON’T CARE.

For 56+ years I’ve watched and listened as politicians lied to me and I DON’T CARE enough to eliminate them.

I’ve had the NSA and FBI on my front porch for making statements like the one above and I DON’T CARE,

I think I know the problem.  We need to elect a Libertarian.
