COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY LARRY ROMANOFF IN PRAVDA 

“The Death of Osama bin Laden”

https://english.pravda.ru/opinion/145497-bin_laden_death/

The author has succeeded in putting the death of Osama just where it belongs, along with such other official tales as the assassination of John Kennedy and the events of 9/11, the last two being astoundingly important events which the general public does not question despite dozens of important details supplied and contradictions identified by some capable and scrupulous independent investigators.

In such matters, contradictions no longer even seem to matter for a great many Americans. They have been so immersed in the official state religion of America’s being exceptional and dedicated to worthy purposes.

Of course, it is not possible to have a global empire, as America does, without generating a huge number of lies to cover up what is really taking place. That fact is just one of a number of important ones explaining the moral and ethical rot of a country like the United States in its post-WWll activity, activity which pretty much boils down to telling hundreds of millions of other people how to run their affairs.

Empire and democracy and concern for the rule of law and human rights are inherently incompatible, yet surprisingly few Americans appreciate the fact. It is a great irony of contemporary American society that even many people on the Trump Right, including Trump himself, believe they are fighting the dark forces of the state when they are actually enthusiastic supporters of the whole massive military-security complex and its work of empire to benefit the plutocrats who genuinely run America.

“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.”
