Έλλην νεοφιλελεύθερος και ολίγον Τραμπαρίφας

Κατά της βίας απ’ όπου και αν προέρχεται τάχθηκε ο Τραμπ, μετά τα επεισόδια στο Σάρλοτσβιλ της Βιρτζίνια. Δεν συμβαίνει μόνο σε έλληνες νεοφιλελεύθερους και Μενουμευρώπηδες, αλλά αποτελεί τελικώς ίδιον των απανταχού θιασωτών της ελευθερίας των αγορών και των παραγωγών, να είναι με την ελευθερία και τα δικαιώματα με προαπαιτούμενα. Να δίνουν στη βία γενικά χαρακτηριστικά και στην αντιμετώπισή της γλυκερές συνταγές, όπως το «αγάπη μόνο» και «θετική ενέργεια».

του Κώστα Βαξεβάνη

Η βία έχει αιτίες, το άδικο επίσης και ο επιπόλαιος (ναι πολλοί έλληνες νεοφιλελεύθεροι είναι θλιβερά επιπόλαιοι που θέλουν να έχουν άποψη) ισαποστασίτης σύμμαχος των άδικων και ισχυρών. Φταίνε τα δύο άκρα. Οι ακροδεξιοί φασίστες στην Αμερική και απ’ την άλλη οι διαδηλωτές της Δημοκρατίας. Οι οπαδοί του στρατηγού της δουλείας Ρόμπερτ Έντουαρντ Λη και όσοι έχουν το θάρρος να πουν πως στον 21ο αιώνα δεν μπορούν να υπάρχουν δούλοι.

Από τη μία ο Χίτλερ με τη βία των κρεματορίων και από την άλλη οι εβραίοι με τη βία της άρνησής τους να καούνε στους φούρνους. Και στη μέση όσοι είναι κατά της βίας απ’ όπου και αν προέρχεται και από το θύτη και από το αμυνόμενο και αδύναμο θύμα. Μην κοιτάτε που η παγιωμένη ιστορική καταγραφή και η παγκόσμια κατακραυγή δεν αφήνει τους σύγχρονους ισαποστασίτες να ψελλίσουν την καταδίκη τους για τη «βία των Εβραίων» στο Ολοκαύτωμα. Απλώς δεν τολμάνε.

Κουβέντα δεν άρθρωσαν οι εν Ελλάδι οπαδοί του φιλελεύθερου κόσμου για όσα έγιναν στη Βιρτζίνια. Τα πολύ φιλελεύθερα sites, δεν έβαλαν καν τη φωτογραφία της Heather Heyer που δολοφονήθηκε από το νεοναζί, ούτε φυσικά έγραψαν το όνομα μιας άγνωστης ακτιβίστριας που (όπως και για τους έλληνες διαδηλωτές) ενδεχομένως τα ήθελε και τα έπαθε. Έτσι όμως συμβαίνει εδώ και καιρό. Λίγο αφότου έληξαν το θέμα της εκλογικής (και όχι κοινωνικής και πολιτικής) επικινδυνότητας με τη Χρυσή Αυγή, τα κόμματα και τα κομματίδια του Συνταγματικού τόξου, επέστρεψαν στη γνωστή υποκρισία. Ο Μαδούρο είναι ένας επικίνδυνος δικτάτορας που εξ αντανακλάσεως ενοχοποιεί και τον Τσίπρα και οι διαδηλωτές της αντιπολίτευσης βαριοί δημοκράτες που δεν ανέχονται την αδικία.

Στο ενδιάμεσο βέβαια διαφεύγουν μερικές λεπτομέρειες, πως για παράδειγμα η Βενεζουέλα είναι η πρώτη χώρα σε αποθέματα πετρελαίου η οποία πολύ ενδιαφέρει τους Αμερικάνους που δεν μπορούν να τα εκμεταλλευτούν εξαιτίας του Μαδούρο, είτε είναι, είτε δεν είναι δικτάτορας. Εν ολίγοις η Βενεζουέλα είναι το Ιράν ή το Ιράκ της Λατινικής Αμερικής και δυστυχώς δεν είναι η Σαουδική Αραβία στην οποία μπορεί να κόβουν κεφάλια και χέρια, αλλά είναι όσο πρέπει συνεργάσιμοι, πράγμα που σαφώς δεν θέτει θέμα δικαιωμάτων, καταδίκης και άλλων διαμαρτυριών.

Οι έλληνες νεοφιλελεύθεροι, Τραμπαλίζονται στο ρυθμό της συντηρητικής αθλιότητας που γεννά νέους διαχωρισμούς και βία κρυμμένα κάτω από την υποκρισία για την ελευθερία και τη Δημοκρατία. Ανήκω στην κατηγορία αυτών που υποστηρίζουν πως ο νεοφιλελευθερισμός είναι ο φασισμός με ανθρώπινο πρόσωπο. Η καθιέρωση των κανόνων του κυνισμού και των ανισοτήτων και η τροποποίησή τους με τρόπο που να εμφανίζονται ως λειτουργίες φυσικής επιλογής. Δεν είναι τυχαίο που ο Μίλτον Φρήντμαν και η Σχολή του Σικάγου, οι θεμελιωτές του νεοφιλελευθερισμού, υπηρέτησαν χωρίς τύψεις τον δικτάτορα της Χιλής, Αγκούστο Πινοσέτ και τη Μάργκαρετ Θάτσερ.

Φυσικά όταν μιλάμε για έλληνες νεοφιλελεύθερους, μιλάμε για έναν συντηρητικό συρφετό που επικαλείται την τυποποίηση του νεοφιλελεύθερου για να καλύψει τις θεωρίες που ντρέπεται να πει φωναχτά, όπως: οι Αριστεροί είναι σκουλήκια, η πολύ ελευθερία βλάπτει, η Χούντα πέτυχε οικονομική ανάπτυξη, δεν υπάρχουν νεκροί στο Πολυτεχνείο και άλλα τέτοια. Με αυτή την έννοια οι εγχώριοι νεοφιλελεύθεροι είναι περισσότερο Τραμπαρίφες παρά οτιδήποτε άλλο.

ΥΓ: Για να τελειώνουμε με τις θεωρίες περί μαύρου και κόκκινου φασισμού. Ο φασισμός, είναι μια απάνθρωπη αυταρχική θεωρία που αποδέχεται ανωτερότητα κάποιων ανθρώπων και εθνών έναντι άλλων, προβλέποντας μάλιστα τη συνειδητή εξόντωση των υποδεέστερων και κατώτερων. Ο κομμουνισμός είναι μια κοσμοθεωρία ισότητας και κοινωνικής δικαιοσύνης που δεν προβλέπει στη θεωρία της ανωτερότητα και εξόντωση ανθρώπων. Το αν υπήρξε στρεβλή εφαρμογή με μέτρα βίας δεν κάνει τη θεωρία του κομμουνισμού, φασισμό, αλλά αυτούς που την εφάρμοσαν με αυτό τον τρόπο υπόλογους. Εν ολίγοις ο έλληνας κομμουνιστής που σκοτώθηκε για να απελευθερωθεί η Ελλάδα, δεν είναι το ίδιο πράγμα με τον φασίστα συνεργάτη των γερμανών Ναζί που κάρφωνε και σκότωνε συμπατριώτες του και στη συνέχεια έγινε εθνικόφρονας πατριώτης με σύνταξη. Τα άλλα είναι για να ξαναγράφουν βολικά την ιστορία διάφοροι «επιστήμονες» και αγγούρια Καλυβιώτικα.

Former Pentagon official confirms: Trump prepares for war with Iran

globinfo freexchange
Right after Trump's sudden announcement that he will withdraw the US forces from Syria, we had some mixed reactions. Some liberals reacted angrily, but most of the reactions from the liberal machine were rather moderate, or at least not as intensive as someone would normally expect.
On the other hand, Trump's supporters and all those who had enough of the pro-war neoliberal establishment, felt a kind of vindication, as it appeared that Trump would eventually keep its promise for an 'anti-interventionist' policy.
But the blog wrote immediately a 'not so fast' article to explain that most of the Americans and all those who are tired of the US endless wars, should not rush to celebrate. We estimated that Trump's move is probably a sign that he is going to re-organize troops and go after the big target called Iran.
Indeed, shortly after the move, Trump, suddenly again, announced that he will also pullout troops from Afghanistan.
And then, about…

Panicked neoliberal tools attempt to trigger a war of generations against AOC's progressive counterattack

globinfo freexchange
We were slightly surprised to see such an article title in one of the primary info tools of the global neoliberal regime and financial capital. But the subtitle immediately clarified everything.
When we read the title “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Revenge of the Millennials” of the article in Bloomberg, we thought that we might be in front of a small miracle. We thought that the time has come for some people inside the core of the establishment apparatus to admit that the younger generations have lost dramatically from this brutal system. And so, the time has come to overthrow it, take their 'revenge'.
But no, it was too good to be true.
The subtitle immediately revealed the trick: “The Democrats’ major economic initiatives tend to favor the young at the expense of the old.”
Then, inside the article we read: “Almost every major new economic initiative proposed by Democrats — the Green New Deal, Medicare for all, debt-free college — has a common feature: Un…

The desperate efforts of the Western neoliberal establishment to build a new propaganda machine

globinfo freexchange
The UK government and other Western governments and the US in recent years have had increasing difficulties persuading enough of their populations as to the legitimacy of the foreign policies that they have been pursuing.
And at the same time, Western countries have been going through a period of political crisis and economic crisis.
Piers Robinson, Chair in Politics, Society and Political Journalism at the University of Sheffield, further explains:
I think a lot of this drive is as much about trying to shore up shaky official narratives and trying to shore up political systems in a situation of political crisis, as it is actually about countering Russian propaganda.
I would suspect that that's a little bit of an excuse here to really what's going on of problems much closer to home.
This is not just to do to UK, this is Europe-wide. And there are also indications from the documents that they are intending to start to have some kind of impact within the United…

How neoliberalism manufactured consent to secure its unlimited power

From David Harvey's A Brief History of Neoliberalism
Part 10 – How Margaret Thatcher systematically destroyed the British industry along with the trade unions
While there were many elements out of which consent for a neoliberal turn could be constructed, the Thatcher phenomenon would surely not have arisen, let alone succeeded, if it had not been for the serious crisis of capital accumulation during the 1970s. Stagflation was hurting everyone. In 1975 inflation surged to 26 per cent and unemployment topped one million. The nationalized industries were draining resources from the Treasury.
This set up a confrontation between the state and the unions. In 1972, and then again in 1974, the British miners (a nationalized industry) went on strike for the first time since 1926.
The miners had always been in the forefront of British labour struggles. Their wages were not keeping pace with accelerating inflation, and the public sympathized. The Conservative government, in the midst of power …

Confirmed: Germany builds its own imperialist empire

globinfo freexchange
Almost two years ago we identified Germany's efforts to develop its military in the context of its ambition to build its own sphere of influence.
As we wrote, Brexit will give the chance to Germany to increase influence due to the change of power balance, especially now that France appears weak - crawling behind Berlin's austerity, sado-monetarism and neoliberal destruction. These conditions (created in the Greek experiment), are necessary to Germany in order to retain a model in favor of its surpluses. These could become the solid ground upon which Germany could build a strong, modern military machine.
Therefore, Merkel knows that the economic domination is not adequate for a country to become a major power. It is also important to have a strong military presence in its “sphere of influence”, or, its financial/debt colonies, if you prefer. The German military presence in Lithuania is a first step towards this direction as the Baltic countries have already be…

WikiLeaks disturbing and hopeful findings on Tulsi Gabbard's path to progressiveness

The definite detachment from the Clintonian machine
globinfo freexchange
Searching the Podesta emails inside WikiLeaks we found a rather disturbing fact about Tulsi Gabbard who recently announced that she will run for the 2020 US presidency. Iraq War Veteran, Jon Soltz, chairman at VoteVets at the time, sent an email on Aug. 2012 to Hillary Clinton top lobbyist, John Podesta, in order to thank him for his contribution to Gabbard's campaign in Hawaii.
Soltz wrote (emphasis added):
This morning, we are one step closer to making history. In Hawaii, VoteVets PAC-endorsed Iraq veteran Tulsi Gabbard has won her primary, in a stunning come-from-behind victory. If she wins in November, she along with Tammy Duckworth (who we also feel very good about), would be the first female combat veteran ever elected to Congress in United States history! This is happening because of you. Your tens of thousands of dollars in donations for Tulsi's campaign, through VoteVets PAC, allowed her to run a fir…

The difference between Bernie Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn and what the US elections won't allow you to decide

globinfo freexchange
A country that has been completely taken over by the banking mafia and the corporate power will never allow people to decide on the most important issue: the abolition of the dominant system that works against them.
Professor Richard Wolff explains:
Because of Bernie Sanders, particularly, we now have the word Socialism floating around, but typically it's about, more or less, really among Democrats. Like Mr. Sanders is ambiguously an independent but he's also a Democrat.
So, the ‘Socialists’ seemed to be the Democrats who want to do more for people. Social welfare, social supports, state supports, versus those who don't want to do quite so much - the centrist Democrats, like Clinton and Obama.
But the real question is a program of change. Socialism is a change of system it goes away from capitalism to do something else. It would be interesting if we could have an election ‘do we want that?’, ‘would we like a different system?’.
There are countries doing t…

The IMF is dismantling Argentina all over again

Part 1
In September, Argentine president Mauricio Macri accepted the 2018 Atlantic Council’s Global Citizen Award. In attendance were many of world’s neoliberal power players and policy makers, among them International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director Christine Lagarde.
Facing the crowd, Macri gleefully admitted that “with Christine, I have to confess we started a great relationship some months ago,” referring to a series of loan agreements with the IMF amounting to $57.1 billion dollars. “I expect that this is going to work very well, and we will end up with the whole country crushing on Christine,” he continued.
This dynamic of chasing an improved image with the world’s big banks and the dominant economies in the West is emblematic of Macri’s priority to secure a relationship with the IMF and improve the country’s image with global financial institutions. But it comes at a devastating cost for the majority of the population who will suffer from neoliberal policy prescriptions of…

How neoliberalism manufactured consent to secure its unlimited power

From David Harvey's A Brief History of Neoliberalism
Part 11 – The Reagan/Thatcher neoliberal legacy: a bizarre form of a sinister political doctrine from which it would be difficult one to escape
But Thatcher had to fight the battle on other fronts. A noble rearguard action against neoliberal policies was mounted in many a municipality –– Sheffield, the Greater London Council (which Thatcher had to abolish in order to achieve her broader goals in the 1980s), and Liverpool (where half the local councillors had to be gaoled) formed active centres of resistance in which the ideals of a new municipal socialism (incorporating many of the new social movements in the London case) were both pursued and acted upon until they were finally crushed in the mid-1980s.
She began by savagely cutting back central government funding to the municipalities, but several of them responded simply by raising property taxes, forcing her to legislate against their right to do so. Denigrating the progressive…

Banishing Truth

by Chris Hedges
The investigative reporter Seymour Hersh, in his memoir “Reporter,” describes a moment when as a young reporter he overheard a Chicago cop admit to murdering an African-American man. The murdered man had been falsely described by police as a robbery suspect who had been shot while trying to avoid arrest. Hersh frantically called his editor to ask what to do.
The editor urged me to do nothing,” he writes. “It would be my word versus that of all the cops involved, and all would accuse me of lying. The message was clear: I did not have a story. But of course I did.” He describes himself as “full of despair at my weakness and the weakness of a profession that dealt so easily with compromise and self-censorship.
Hersh, the greatest investigative reporter of his generation, uncovered the U.S. military’s chemical weapons program, which used thousands of soldiers and volunteers, including pacifists from the Seventh-day Adventist Church, as unwitting human guinea pigs to measure…
