JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: THE ROLE OF LIES IN AMERICA’S PATH TO DOMINANCE   Leave a comment

“Lies are Washington’s chosen path to dominance”

 

I don’t think it correct to say that lies are the chosen path to dominance.

I think it rather works as follows.

Having chosen the goal of domination, all kinds of dark and criminal activities just become part of what you do. After all, a questionable goal seriously pursued will certainly soon involve questionable practices.

But you do not want to reveal these dark and even criminal activities, either to your own people or to the world at large, which still receive all your self-congratulatory rhetoric on rights and freedoms and rule of law. So, it becomes necessary to lie.

The frequency and extent of the lies today are a pretty good proxy measure for the amount of dark and criminal activity going on.

We only find out about some of the lies now owing to the technology of the Internet, bringing everyone who cares to look to a press from abroad, to independent journalists, and to free-minded observations and speculations.

That’s why, of course, Washington has gone after other voices in the foreign press, such as RT, and why American intelligence-connected hi-tech companies, like Google or Facebook, have begun to silence voices on their services under the false cover notion of fake news.
