Subject: Stolen US Elections --Past, Present, and Future.



12 January 2016
Grenoble, France



Dear Colleagues and Friends of CEIMSA,


The limits of bourgeois democracy that is instrumentally used to manage a capitalist society which is owned and operated by a corporations and their corporatist state apparatus is more visible that ever before. Public elections have gone from tragedy to farce, as “The Owners” have necessarily move front stage to operate this Puppet Show. Participatory democracy, the only alternative to the tried-and-failed Represent democracy would require a complete change of social context, removing “The Owners” from power.


Meanwhile the farce continues, and is being chronicled by dedicated public intellectuals, who cannot live with this dirty little secret any longer. Please see the messages below from NYU professors Bertell Ollman and Mark Crispin Miller, and the author of “Killing Hope,” William Blum.

Francis -

      There is nothing of such importance to all of our lives that Americans, let alone people in the rest of the world, know less about, and for "good" (meaning bad) reasons, than our STOLEN ELECTIONS. The piece below lays it all out very nicely, and how it is likely to effect who becomes our next president. You may recall that I co-taught an NYU course called "How To Steal an Election" with Mark Crispin Miller, author of "FOOLED AGAIN",  a book on this subject, in 2005. Sadly, nothing has changed in the land that never stops boasting of its "democracy" since then. For your site.
