"One, Two, Three, Four, We don't want your Fucking War!"
During the latest act in the American tragedy playing before our eyes, the "foreign policy" (U.S. imperialism) question and answer session with Trump and Clinton. the best businessman in the history of the universe (believe it), Trump, attacked Clinton while trying to sound "presidential".
Many felt he did just that which I disagree partly because he said one thing that should concern all of us. He said "our enemies".
I think most people listening to him speak didn't bat an eye at him saying that, like it's just an accepted fact that we have enemies. OUR enemies. It's said so matter of factly, no one questions it, the focus is on whether he sounded reasonable or not and that he told the truth about Hillary "the war criminal" Clinton. Of course we have enemies man, we're the big, bad USA and they hate us for our freedumbs, and our rights under the U.S.S. Constitution.
Enemy is a relative term, it can apply to a wide range of situations and people. You might consider your next door neighbor your enemy, or the Democratic party. But relative to Americans collectively having enemies in this world, that's just bullshit. We've been told we have enemies our entire lives. I'm 60 years old, I've heard it since Duck and Cover days. Fuck that. We don't have enemies, our government and those that control it have enemies. They aren't our enemies, they're the enemies of the ruling elite, those who rule us.
The Russian people aren't my enemy. Neither are the Chinese people. The enemy du jour, ISIS, isn't really our enemy except as an indirect path to our real enemy, our own fucking government.
Notice Trump said "enemies", plural. We have more than one enemy, we have multiple enemies. Here's a guy who has been bullshitting everyone about Putin and Russia who is indirectly saying they, Russia, are our enemy. That has to be the inference. There are only so many enemies out there, North Korea, Iran, China, Russia, ISIS, that axis of evil thing. So Trump is clearly parroting our rulers scare propaganda molding Russia and China as "our" enemies.
Some feel Trump would be a less dangerous President than Hillary Clinton. That's hard to say, certainly Clinton sets the bar so damn high it's hard to top. But this is a giant machine controlled by an immensely powerful collective. The Deep State, the spy and intelligence agencies, the western financial oligarchy, the secret societies, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg group, the Club of Rome, the ruling elite's control of the media, etc., are not going to be sidelined by some puny billionaire with bad hair. Or any U.S. President for that matter. Nobel Peace prize winner Obama has proven that without a shadow of doubt. Signed, sealed, delivered, we're theirs.
This is the kind of false narrative that must be challenged, not simply accepted. That's the lie that starts it all, the foundation of the Empire, enemies. We the Serfs don't have enemies, they do, the ruling elite, those that rule over We the Serfs. We're going to hear it over and over in the final two and a half months particularly in the debates. We have enemies, we need a strong military, we need to fight ISIS, we need to take measures to stop Russian and Chinese aggression, we need to liberate Syria from an evil dictator, we need to stop Iran from being Iran.
It all has to be challenged and not turned into a question of who might be "better" at U.S. imperialism, Trump or Clinton. Our enemies are those ruling over us.
