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.

του system failure   Με το που έκανε την εμφάνισή της η πανδημία του COVID-19 και άρχισε να φαίνεται το μέγεθος της υγειονομικής κατά κύριο λόγο, αλλά και οικονομικής κρίσης που αυτή θα προκαλούσε σε παγκόσμια κλίμακα, άρχισαν και οι εντατικές προσπάθειες για την δημιουργία ενός αποτελεσματικού εμβολίου.  Όπως ήταν αναμενόμενο, οι θεωρίες συνωμοσίας γύρω από το πιθανό εμβόλιο άρχισαν να διαδίδονται σχεδόν ταυτόχρονα και με μεγάλη ταχύτητα. Οι θεωρίες αυτές προωθήθηκαν κατά κύριο λόγο μέσω του διαδικτύου και ως επί το πλείστον από συντηρητικές και ακροδεξιές ομάδες και διαδόθηκαν από ανθρώπους που αποτελούν την κύρια δεξαμενή υποστηρικτών και ψηφοφόρων του Ντόναλντ Τραμπ, του Μπόρις Τζόνσον, αλλά και άλλων ακροδεξιών δημαγωγών σε διάφορες χώρες της Δύσης. Η "ψεκασμένη" ακροδεξιά έκανε παντιέρα αυτές τις θεωρίες (όπως έχει γίνει και σε άλλες περιπτώσεις), με τα αποτελέσματα που βλέπουμε σήμερα.

Biden said Trickle Down economics has never worked, but guess who else said that before and what happened

globinfo freexchange   Forget the fact that it took him about forty years to realize that one of the biggest neoliberal fairy tales is essentially the utter fraud. Not to mention that, all these years, he became part of the failed neoliberal system. That, he was faithfully following orders from the wealthy donors,  efficiently sustaining this utter fraud and other neoliberal deceptive policies, to protect their interests.   "Uncle Joe" suddenly discovered that Trickle Down economics has never worked and made the statement to a joint session of US Congress as if he had discovered an earth-like planet with a technologically advanced civilization.   This is one of the most suitable cases for someone to respond with the phrase: "No shit, Sherlock". Yet, the weirdness of this parody doesn't end here. It's even funnier the fact that someone else before "Uncle Joe" made this great "discovery". And it took another big crisis to realize it (or ad

Kamala’s KHive trolls boosted by bots while media defends harassment campaigns

An April 8 LA Times profile of the “KHive” attempted to put a positive spin on Twitter’s nest of Vice President Kamala Harris super fans, omitting the group’s online abuses, offline harassment, and alarming origins. Describing the KHive as “ the type of modern political army that politicians increasingly rely on for both support and defense, ” the LA Times painted its members as political realists united by a desire to defend one of the most powerful politicians in the country from unfair attacks.  It turns out that Harris’ “modern political army” was manufactured with the aid of an even larger army of fake Twitter accounts. After the term “KHive” was formally branded by MSNBC pundits like Joy Reid, KHive leaders received a boost from a Democratic Party operative-controlled bot farm. One of the people most advanced by the botnet is the widely recognized founder of KHive, Bianca Delarosa.  According to Vox , KHive credited Delarosa with organizing KHive in a Facebook group that start

From RussiaGate to UkraineGate: Route to Apocalypse

Corruption and supposed efforts to reduce it have become a neoconservative weapon of choice with which to operate the controls on the funding sluice gates to acolytes of the U.S.-led international neoconservative empire.   by Oliver Boyd-Barrett   Part 3 - The 2014 Ukraine coup Trump had been roundly castigated, and impeached, for pressurizing a new Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelensky, to investigate Trump’s likely rival, Joe Biden, for the 2020 election, in return for expediting U.S. arms support to Ukraine in its struggle against separatist republics of eastern Ukraine (the Donbass). Whatever its legality, Trump’s behavior certainly did not favor Russia. It could be argued that there was a stronger actual tie between Ukraine and President Biden than ever existed between former President Trump and Russia. Trump was unable even to interest Moscow or Russian President Vladimir Putin in a proposal for a Moscow Trump Tower. Biden left a much deeper impression on Ukraine.  In 2014 the

In moving UN speech, veteran diplomat confronts OPCW 'stonewalling and smear tactics' on Syria

The Grayzone   Returning to the United Nations, veteran German diplomat and former top UN official Hans von Sponeck calls for an end to the stonewalling of accountability for the OPCW's cover-up of its April 2018 Douma chemical weapons probe.  " The manner in which this serious controversy has been handled by OPCW management... has sought  to cover up any serious questioning of the OPCW through stonewalling and unacceptable smear tactics, " Sponeck says. " The Security Council can not be surprised that there is increasing public pressure for UN leadership to find an unbiased resolution of this troubling controversy. " Sponeck recently spearheaded a Statement of Concern about the Douma scandal, signed by notable global voices including five former OPCW officials. In his comments, Sponeck reveals that that the OPCW has refused to accept the letter, " return[ing] to the sender without comments – an unfortunate act of humiliation. "  Sponeck is the former

The hawks who want war with Iran are working overtime

Last week's cyberattack on an Iranian nuclear facility, reportedly by Israeli intelligence, is the latest gambit from the coalition of Israeli leaders, Christian fundamentalists, and hawkish Washington neocons who want to block a US return to the Iran nuclear agreement. If they're successful, millions of ordinary Iranians suffering under draconian sanctions will pay the price.   by Ariel Gold/Medea Benjamin   Just as talks between the United States and Iran were taking place last week in Vienna, a cyberattack was carried out on Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility. Reports are that the Mossad, Israel’s intelligence agency, was behind the attack that blacked out the facility just one day after Tehran launched new advanced uranium enrichment centrifuges, and as US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin was in Israel speaking about the United States’ “enduring and ironclad” commitment to the Jewish state. This is the latest in a series of Israeli attacks on Iran designed to scuttle negotiati
