How Democracy is being hijacked

https://www.theguardian.com/technolo...cked-democracy

This is a very interesting read, it should be titled "How the Right Wing is Brainwashed and Controlled"

No, it was not an interesting read. It was pretty much the same old fact-less narrative we've heard before from the Left.
Thanks from roastpork and Sabcat

No, I agree with Ghostie, it is a very good read. It yielded some stark realities that went right over Ghosties head. I don't blame him though, he simply cannot see anything at all except through his partisan glasses. His biggest problem is his hatred skews how he looks at everything. When he points his finger at the Right and at Trump he reveals a glaring naivete born of that hatred. Ghostie sees a Global Conspiracy of mind control , sadly though he doesn't extend it far enough out there to get what it's really about. It isn't about "Right" or "Left". It's about division and control plain and simple. It's truly about that "Global 1%" that his article mentioned, but they are not "Right" or "Left", they are simply the ones pulling the strings and keeping us all divided. The article also mentioned the Military Industrial Complex. It is real and it is insidious but it is not "Right" or "Left either. The Right/Left paradigm is NOT real, it is simply a paradigm .....a construct that they use to control everything.
Thanks from right to left

The thing about all of this stuff is this, the Global 1%, those hated Elites are neither right nor left. They aren't hiding what they are doing, they can't resist shoving it in our faces and laughing at us. The problem with most humans, including me until about two years ago is that our minds are chronically closed. They are boarded up and sealed using the very thing Ghosties article was about, targeted information.

The truth is out there, it is however very unpalatable. The truth is that it is actually very frightening. But it's out there for the world to find and learn from.
Thanks from right to left

Dimwits erroneously think that the word Democracy appears in the US Constitution but not even once. Republic is there more than a few times.
Thanks from Sensible and Santa

Of course it's impossible that people could be voting democrats out because their ideas have been tried and failed.....( sarcasm )

Eventually liberals will have those who disagree with them and sent to re education camps to have their thinking corrected.

No sale! This Guardian piece would have us all believe that the Great Global Oligarchy are extreme nationalists and protectionists, while the pro: EU and globalization forces are the democratic majority. The Guardian...like virtually all the British tabloids, tried to stop BREXIT, and now Guardian and the Beeb are making an astonishing and completely unexpected reversal and shift behind Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party...making the June snap election a lying Elizabeth May called for June, a lot more interesting.

Snap elections in a parliamentary system..whether in England, Canada, Australia or wherever, often go bad for the governing party..as the appearance of desperation and a government trying to hide something causes support and high poll ratings to crumble and fall before Election Day.

It seems that after being coy and reluctant about her level of support for BREXIT for several months after picking up the pieces left by Tory buffoon-David Cameron, has switched and she's pushing for a "hard" BREXIT in upcoming negotiations with the EU....and that likely doesn't go over well with London's financial district..which see themselves being cut off and losing Euro markets to French and German banks.

Corbyn..on the other hand, who was trashed for giving the Union equivocal support during the Referendum(mostly for being honest about the undemocratic EU governance), all of a sudden is looking like the only game in town for those who want to end BREXIT talk and get back to business-as-usual.

Now, what needs to be noted here...but you won't find in today's Guardian(I'd suggest going to a blog site run by former Guardian journalists-Off-Guardian for honest journalism) is that the MONEY is divided between nationalists and globalists just like the general public...although for different reasons than most people. Some businesses and investors...especially bankers..see profits from globalization, while others see better returns from renewed nationalism trends...especially weapons manufacturers!

As with most policy issues, they're a lot more complicated than the simple...mostly propagandistic presentations in MSM. The global oligarchy is a club that tries to act in their best mutual interests in maximizing profits at everyone else's and the environment's expense. Hence, the world has experienced a long, protracted trade and finance globalization trend since the end of WWII with few setbacks. BUT, setbacks do come along when the Billionaires Club divides and tries to devour each other. It's been long noted that the 19th century was an era of relative peace in Europe that was destined to end because no amount of increased trade could circumvent war between the Empire of the global order...England, and the rising empire with the growing economy and expanding military - Germany.

So, in the end, there are no good guys and bad guys between nationalism and globalization. They are forces used by competing bankers and industrialists for their own advantages and purposes. As long as capitalism, and its debt-financed money creation, boom/bust cycles, ruthless drive for increased profits rules the world order, it will all continue to get worse until everything is destroyed!

Do any of your rightwing sources ever explain why they back America's insistence on democracy in other countries?
