Basic reasons for which the US deep state will try to prevent the rise of the Left in Europe

by system failure

It is certain that various US think tanks will be monitoring right now the rise of the Left in Greece with the radical-Left party SYRIZA, as well as Podemos in Spain and other countries in Europe (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/11/signs-of-resistance-against-neoliberal.html).

It's quite remarkable that the US political system, especially after Clinton administration, has been adopted by Europe, with the transformation of the Social-democrats. A characteristic example is Greece, as the Socialist party PASOK under Kostas Simitis, implemented the neoliberal perception of the free market and the financialization of nearly every aspect of economic activity.

However, as in the US the Left was demonized for decades and totally vanished from the political scene, Europe was meant to be the field of the new Leftist political powers, after the latest global financial crisis. Inevitably, any possible change will start from Europe and follow a reverse direction of that of neoliberalism in the early 90s.

Therefore, a first potential consequence would be that such a possibility could become a good example of an alternative political solution against the bipolar plutocratic political establishment in the US, which was enhanced rapidly after Clinton administration in the early 90s, secured big capital's interests and left no choice to the majority of the American people to vote for their interests.

A second consequence for the US deep state would be the loss of Europe in the new Cold War. Except from Britons, who have traditional deep ties and common interests with the US, the rest of Europe could slip to the Sino-Russian bloc which grows rapidly in the military and economic field and increasingly gaining independence from the Western economic system, attracting other countries too. (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/08/a-perfect-timing-for-argentina-to.html)

A third consequence would be the abrupt termination of the Greek experiment and its deployment in Europe and the US. This could trigger a reverse situation against the accelerated expansion of the neoliberal doctrine* in its most extreme version as a forerunner for the new global Feudalism.

Plutocrats will do whatever necessary to buy more time. The war already started in Europe. The systemic establishment in Greece try to present SYRIZA as a non-serious political power and downgrade the rapid change of the Greek and the European political scene especially after the latest euro-elections. At the same time, current government is ready to collapse and therefore already tries to force the Left to compromise and agree on the catastrophic measures imposed by Troika. SYRIZA, of course, refused to do this and asks for immediate elections.

Post-WWII history shows that the United States tried to prevent the rise of the Left in Europe during the whole period of the Cold War, because of the fear of the Soviet further expansion. This was done through provocative operations against Leftist organizations (Gladio in Italy) (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/10/an-example-of-provocative-operations-in.html), or, by supporting dictatorial regimes (junta in Greece) (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/04/black-anniversary.html), etc. Surely, the US deep state will try to prevent a domino of rise of the Left in Europe, for one more time, as this will probably bring serious trouble to the economic elites both in the US and Europe. The propaganda by the mainstream media already started.

All these scenarios, however, could also make neocons even more anxious to impose their lunatic plans to provoke a general conflict with Russia as the only alternative against the dramatic shift of the global geopolitical balance, unless we see a fast creation of a corresponding political power in the US inspired by the European Left. It would be even better if such a power could rise from the movements in the streets (Occupy movement, etc.), like Podemos in Spain.

A unified Left could trigger rapid changes globally against the neoliberal expansion, destroying plutocracy's plans for total domination. Of course this would require to remain ideologically pure, not to be transformed and absorbed by the neoliberal perception like Social-democrats. Οtherwise, the new political gap could trigger unprecedented and uncontrolled, chaotic situations, in the absence of any other political alternative that could fill it.



* According to these plans, the ultimate goal would be probably to dissolve the vast Russian territory in future and bring in power Western-friendly puppet regimes, in order not only to conquer the valuable resources, but also to impose permanently the neoliberal doctrine on "unexplored" regions and populations.

  1. You are dead wrong. The "left" is dead in the waters in Europe and for good reason. Nationalism is coming back. Right wing conservatism.

    Yet a third anonymous...
    It's not about right or left anymore, it's about liberal/anti-liberal. Liberalism as evolved into neo-liberalism, a unregulated free trade monstrosity that's starving populations worldwide.
    Two forces are actively anti-liberal: the extreme left wing, and patriotic right wing conservatism - though not in the USA, where no such thing as an anti-liberal thought exists. The union of those two forces, in Europe, fought the Nazis in WW2 - they were the interior resistance in the occupied countries. They are truly anti-totalitarian, one though its statist stance (the state as the incarnation of the majority's will and not the corrupt thing they call "state" in the USA) and income equality claims, the other through statism (yes, them too, and with the same meaning as for the left wing), patriotism and the refusal to surrender to supra-national or foreign forces.

    Forth anonymous....it is really about US hegemony and the continued domination by Washington of its vassal states in Europe. The idiots in Washington would have liked Russia as a vassal state but Putin is not playing that game. However, their thick headed response has served to push Russia and China together and started to fragment Europe. Outcomes that will be disastrous for the US Empire and even Kissinger has got out of his coffin to say so. I don’t think a shift to the right across Europe would guarantee slavish support for the US Empire either. I do think that the ‘EU’ as a project is doomed as its underlying financial system will unravel.

The big fraud behind the outrageously high natural gas prices revealed

globinfo freexchange   Speaking at the Greek radio broadcaster Real FM 107,1, the Greek economist, Yanis Varoufakis, revealed the real reason behind the outrageously high natural gas prices, which can't be justified only by the war in Ukraine and Putin's actions to cut supplies to Europe.    As he pointed out, the biggest part of the rise of natural gas prices is due to the stock market games. Prices should rise by 80% at most, not 800%. The rest of this hyper-profit is because big companies have already bought quantities of natural gas for the next two years. So, they don't sell it now in order to boost its price and sell it later at much higher price.    Yet, the worst part of the story is that these financial games often create bubbles - similar to the Lehman Brothers bubble in 2008 that led to the Wall Street collapse - so we are now to the point where the German government is forced to subsidize big companies with billions, exactly because they play these risky financ

Greek ‘Watergate’: Mitsotakis’ authoritarianism cannot be tolerated anymore

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is a “destabilising factor” for the country and citizens cannot stand his “authoritarian” attitude, senior socialist lawmaker Michalis Katrinis told EURACTIV after it was unveiled that the secret services bugged the phone of Greek socialist opposition leader and MEP Nikos Androulakis.   by Sarantis Michalopoulos   Part 2 - ‘Protecting’ the company which bought Predator   In July, the European Parliament services also found that there was an attempt to bug Androulakis’ phone with the illegal Predator spyware. A couple of months earlier, it was revealed that journalist Thanasis Koukakis was targeted by Predator, another nail in the coffin of the country’s dismal media freedom record under Mitsotakis. For Katrinis, the government is “protecting” the company that purchased the illegal surveillance spyware. “ A month after the scandal was revealed, no search has been made at the offices of the company that trades Predator, ” Katrinis said, adding tha

Day 1243: Julian Assange still in prison and under slow-motion execution by the Anglo-American imperialist criminals

failed evolution   On 11 April 2019, the Ecuadorian government of traitor Lenin Moreno, invited the Metropolitan Police into the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and they arrested Julian Assange . Since then, Assange is kept in Belmarsh high security prison in London, without actual charges.   The real reason world's number one political prisoner is still kept in this high security prison, is because he exposed horrendous war crimes carried out by the US imperialists and their allies.   The ruthless Western imperialist regime wants to punish the No1 real journalist in the world and make him an example for any Whistleblower or real journalist who will attempt to expose its big crimes in the future.   And the Anglo-American axis has now become officially a fascist coalition , framed by the rest of its Western pets. UK's Home Secretary Priti Patel, one of the most ruthless ever, decided to extradite Julian Assange to US. No surprise of course. The only question we had in mind is

Greek ‘Watergate’: Mitsotakis’ authoritarianism cannot be tolerated anymore

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is a “destabilising factor” for the country and citizens cannot stand his “authoritarian” attitude, senior socialist lawmaker Michalis Katrinis told EURACTIV after it was unveiled that the secret services bugged the phone of Greek socialist opposition leader and MEP Nikos Androulakis.   by Sarantis Michalopoulos   Part 1   The Greek “Watergate” as described by international media caused a political earthquake in the Mediterranean country, sparking resignations from the prime minister’s secretary general and nephew, Grigoris Dimitriadis and secret services chief Panagiotis Kontoleon. “ Also, the resignation of the PM’s nephew and closest associate raises many questions since it was not done for reasons of avoiding the toxic atmosphere, as was initially said. The sacrifice of Mr. Dimitriadis probably hides a lot and remains to be investigated, ” Katrinis noted. Mitsotakis, however, is hanging on for dear life. “ Mitsotakis is now a destabilising f

The Queen and her legacy: 21st century Britain has never looked so medieval

by Jonathan Cook   Part 1   Anyone in the UK who imagined they lived in a representative democracy – one in which leaders are elected and accountable to the people – will be in for a rude awakening over the next days and weeks. TV schedules have been swept aside. Presenters must wear black and talk in hushed tones. Front pages are uniformly somber. Britain’s media speak with a single, respectful voice about the Queen and her unimpeachable legacy. Westminster, meanwhile, has been stripped of left and right. The Conservative, Liberal Democrat and Labour parties have set aside politics to grieve as one. Even the Scottish nationalists – supposedly trying to rid themselves of the yoke of centuries of English rule presided over by the monarch – appear to be in effusive mourning.  The world’s urgent problems – from the war in Europe to a looming climate catastrophe – are no longer of interest or relevance. They can wait till Britons emerge from a more pressing national trauma. Domestically, t

The Chris Hedges Report: Ukraine and the crisis of media censorship

The Real News Network   Throughout the Ukraine war, Western news outlets have mindlessly parroted the opinions of a ruling elite and overseen a public discourse that is often unhinged from the real world.

He is the author of Somebody Else's Century: East and West in a Post-Western World and Time No Longer: America After the American Century . 

One more Greek lawmaker files complaint over attempted phone hacking

A lawmaker in Greece's main opposition party filed a complaint with the top court's prosecutor on Friday over what he said were repeated attempts to infect his mobile phone with the Predator malware, the latest incident in a phonetapping scandal. Last month, Greek lawmakers voted in favour of setting up an inquiry commission to probe the phone tapping of a political opposition leader that led Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis to sack the head of the country's intelligence service (EYP).   The scandal over the wiretapping of Nikos Androulakis, leader of the socialist PASOK party, Greece's third-largest political party, has turned up the heat on the conservative premier who brought EYP under his control after taking office three years ago. On Friday, Christos Spirtzis, a former minister and close associate of SYRIZA party leader Alexis Tsipras, said that last November two attempts to hack his phone were made via suspicious text messages prompting him to click on links. 

Congressional Democrats shun Ukraine peace campaign
