Subject: The Politics of Fear, as on the Streets of Pre-Nazi Germany.
8 October 2015
Dear Colleagues and Friends of CEIMSA,
That the recent waves of immigration into Europe are the result of more than a decade of US imperialist policy is hardly deniable. Thankfully for the powers that be, the European and American public suffer from amnesia and little or no connection will be made between these two events. The accelerator of change has been pushed to the floor, and this metal to the peddle will provide profitable even more investments for a few capitalists, at a huge human cost of course. We may anticipate a few well placed reforms designed to capture public attention to prevent social revolts as the general catastrophe grows worse.
The ignoble leaders of an empire in decline have shown themselves to be no more than control junkies. The monkey on their back will not permit them to think otherwise; they will go down still thinking and stinking in the old imperialist ways.
The 8 items in this series below are a grim reminder that ‘Yesterday’ has been evoked by today’s leaders as the model of the future. They apparently have learned nothing from their past mistakes; and we must await for the myriad of contradictions which they have produced to mature and wash them away. What positive forces exist today which are willing and able to replace the boring senility that tries to pass as contemporary political leadership? Where are the local incubators that are preparing leadership into a new tomorrow, with a social system better than today’s? Below we find where they most certainly are not . . . !
