Dictatorship USA – Part 6

 

Massive, Constant Foreign Aggression

No discussion of the real United States of America would begin to be complete without discussing the massive and repeated crimes of the US ruling class and government abroad. This is not a setting for such a discussion, which would involve not merely blog notes, but a compendium of books.

We merely note in passing here the multiple US invasions in Latin American countries, the full support of the US for nazi and fascist countries in the 1930’s (see my series of blogs “Америка и Фашизм”), the multiple CIA incursions and subversions, the mass murder of Koreans in the 1950’s, of the Vietnamese and other Indochinese peoples in the 1960’s and 1970’s, the provocative lie about “weapons of mass destruction” in Iraq, which led to the death of well over a million people (see my blog Вредная Машина Пропаганды). And the suffering continues and will continue: the murderous military campaign against the progressive government in Libya, the attempts to overthrow the Syrian government, etc. etc. As the astute observer will note, this list is far from complete.

This massive and virtually non-stop aggression requires a “passive” and compliant citizenry within the USA itself. Real opposition to US imperialist aggression sometimes occurs – as it did in the later stages of the Vietnam War – but it is crucially important that this opposition not go “too far.” The need for largely hidden control is obvious here as well. The US dictatorship cannot maintain its dominant world position or its massive exploitation of foreign peoples without a quiescent or at least a controlled domestic populace.

The Prostitute and Controlled Mass Media

Anyone who seriously follows the US mass media will note that TV and radio, newspapers and magazines, etc. are powerful mass propaganda vehicles on behalf of US imperialism. The US mass media assiduously follow the rules of psychological warfare propaganda enunciated by the expert proponents of that evil “science.” (For a list of books concerning psychological warfare propaganda, see references in “Silent Terror.” https://arnoldlockshin.wordpress.com/ )

The naive – or malicious – apologist for the US mass media will often emphasize the occasional material which criticizes the president or US policies. “Freedom of the press!” From an operational standpoint, this or that president or senator or congressman is not particularly important. This or that piece of legislation is rarely highly significant. Presidents and the others come and go, but the fundamental policies of US imperialism do not change as a result. Criticism of some individual does not amount to much, if anything.

For the US mass media, what is crucial is to defend and propagate the basic politics of US imperialism. The very infrequent substantial – and often, not at all substantial — criticism that is occasionally printed (dissemination on TV is even less common) changes nothing fundamentally about the propaganda machine. And is in fact useful, as occasional, and usually not very perspicacious commentary, reinforces the false perception of the US mass media as being “free.”

The massive US propaganda machine is an essential component of the US dictatorship. Adherence to the official line is supervised by the US secret political police.

No honest, independent person of progressive inclinations could hope to become a reporter, commentator or editor in any branch of the US imperialist mass media. Such individuals would never pass the litmus test of acceptability enforced by the vast and omnipotent United States lie, spy, criminal, provocation, subversion and regime change, terror, drug-runnning, torture, war and mass murder apparatus.

As for the numerous small-time printed and internet outlets that purport to be critical, progressive, radical or even revolutionary, their role will be discussed separately.

The United States DICTATORSHIP requires a parrot-like, totally controlled (with the apparent exceptions noted above) mass propaganda media.

Правительство США жестоко нарушало мои права человека при проведении кампании террора, которая заставила меня покинуть свою родину и получить политическое убежище в СССР. См. книгу «Безмолвный террор — История политических гонений на семью в США» — «Silent Terror: One family’s history of political persecution in the United States» — http://arnoldlockshin.wordpress.com

Правительство США еще нарушает мои права, в течении более 12 лет отказывается от выплаты причитающейся мне пенсии по старости. Властители США воруют пенсию!! Всё это — ещё доказательство, что настоящий действующий закон в США — Закон джунглей.

ФСБ — Федеральная служба «безопасности» России — вслед за позорным, предавшим страну предшественником КГБ, выполняет приказы секретного, кровавого хозяина (boss) — американского ЦРУ (CIA). Среди таких «задач» — мне запретить выступать в СМИ и не пропускать большинства отправленных мне комментариев. А это далеко не всё…
