“The Moral Fiber of Justin Trudeau” by Kim Petersen (Dissident Voice via Axis of Logic)
An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:
For any appeal to ethics and morality to have any legitimacy, the principles so enounced must be applied rigorously, without favor or prejudice, to all human beings whatever grouping they may be slotted into. In other words, favoritism and morality are an antithetical mixture.
The principle that holds morals apply equally to all humans seemingly eludes Canada’s prime minister Justin Trudeau.
On 7 November, Trudeau stood in the House of Commons and railed against anti-Semitism and rightly so. Anti-Semitism, as with any form of racism or hatred expressed against any grouping, is anathema.
Yet Trudeau’s taking up the cause of anti-Semitism by attacking the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement is transparently, logically, and morally flawed.
My online response to the above linked-to article follows:
That’s our fascist establishment for you. I’m reading Michael Klare’s stellar “War Without End” right now and in it he makes it crystal clear that the business community is behind the State terror that daily rends this planet. His focus is on the United States, but it’s the United States that, because of it’s outsized power and influence, determines the look and shape of the current Godless world we inhabit. Barrington Moore wrote about American’s predominant voice of terror and violence and the Eisenhower regime designed a New Look military posture that incorporated the concept of massive retaliation against those who would resist absorption into the global dictatorship of the United States. And, of course, the Christian Bible identifies the United States as a False Prophet (pushing a godly, democratic form of government that is the opposite of what that rhetoric posits) and a wild beast that ascend[s] out of the ‘earth’. That beast has two horns like a (inoffensive, Christ-like) lamb, but a mouth like a dragon, offering the world a deal that it can’t refuse, safely.
“It is now possible to essay an answer to the two questions that framed this discussion [Introduction to Klare’s book]. The poor people of the world will fight so persistently against great odds because the generations of unrelieved suffering they have endured, and the stagnation they see around them, inform them that their only hope for a decent and just future is a revolution against underdevelopment and the political system that that perpetuates it. The America corporate elite will have us fight so persistently to suppress revolutions because they view this struggle as the only way to preserve their way of life. There can be no reconciliation in this conflict. The rewards at stake are far too great. Only through revolution can the people of the Third World begin the process of development and acquire some measure of self-dignity; only through counterrevolution can the American business elite preserve its wealth and power. For the United States, the only possible outcome of this global conflict is participation in a long series of “limited” conflicts, police actions and “stability operations” – the War Without End.

Recall tool Trudeau’s loud shout-out to the capitalist class during the 2015 election that crowned him Main Tool. He lambasted those who bashed corporations. (transcript by Macleans, tidied up and easy to read, here: https://app.box.com/s/4pbfx…, not stopping to consider that people might bash corporations for a reason. Why shouldn’t those who are bashed by corporations in turn be able to bash them? From the standpoint of a corporate tool like Trudeau, they shouldn’t. We shouldn’t resist corporate domination and abuse. And, as John Perkins makes clear in his (very flawed) updated book “The New Confessions Of An Economic Hit Man,” EHMs are now at work everywhere, including America. Jeff Halper, in “War Against The People,” makes it clear that there is a global pacification operation underway that is, simply, counterrevolutionary. There doesn’t have to be a conventional political revolution for their [rather, ‘there’] to be counterrevolution. All that’s needed is the threat of people thinking and the war-making State will pounce. You may innovate and make a new toaster but you may also innovate and dream up a new political system that does not have inequality and war for profit at its core. Can’t have that.
