The ENEE sadism

by system failure

At the same time where eurozone is struggling to get back on its feet due to accumulated problems since the latest global financial crisis, the European Neoliberal Economic Empire (ENEE) insists on fiscal discipline! France, Italy and Belgium have been targeted this time:

The European Union has threatened to impose sanctions on France, Italy, and Belgium should they fail to bring their bloated budgets under the ceiling allowed by the EU. On Friday, the bloc gave the three an extra three months until March to fix their budgets. [...] Authorities in France, Italy and Belgium have promised to implement economic overhauls to shore up their public finances. So far, no country in the eurozone, which groups 18 countries, has come under sanction for failing to respect the EU's deficit target.”

It is amazing that the ENEE is threatening to impose sanctions not only against Russia, but also against its own “provinces”! No question of taking relief measures for the national economies and the people of course. The ENEE sadists request more blood even from the most bleeding members ( because the ultimate goal is to secure the total dominance of plutocracy over the majority.

And this is something that should not surprise us because one of the most dedicated supporter of the sadistic policies against people, is the Greek PM and his government, consisting of some of the most fanatically attached to the neoliberal doctrine politicians. After all the disaster of the Troika imposed measures, the Greek PM, Antonis Samaras insists on the fiscal targets. In a recent interview he stated that the dilemma is "whether Greece will stay on the path of sanitation by maintaining its fiscal targets and reforms, or will return to the age of deficits and subversion of the reforms." ( People are of no importance against fiscal targets.

The imperial transformation of the EU can be clearly seen also in the words of the high ranking officials close to the "emperor" : “'I made a choice not to sanction because that would have been easy,' EC President Jean-Claude Juncker told journalists from a group of European newspapers.” ( The "aristocrat" should show compassion once in a while to his "nationals"!

He is the same man who recently survived a no-confidence vote after the "Luxleaks" big scandal because a big part of the EU parliament political elite devotedly connected to the lobbyists and their interests. He is the same man who openly admitted that groups of interests in the EU are unavoidable! (

Meanwhile, the problems of debt, poverty, unemployment and inequality continue to grow in the European periphery and started to threaten the most developed countries of the eurozone core. Thousands of desperate refugees are trapped in the bankrupted Greece with the "Empire" closing its eyes and ears as if they don't exist.

The officials of the "Empire" insist on the most conservative and inflexible stance against the "tsunami" of problems. Yet, this could also become the main cause for its final collapse soon. The battle is about to begin ...

Vijay Prashad on BRICS & Why Global South Cooperation Is Key to Dismantling Unjust World Order

Democracy Now!   As a two-day BRICS summit gets underway in South Africa, we speak with author and analyst Vijay Prashad about whether the bloc — which comprises Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa — can meaningfully challenge U.S. and Western domination in world affairs by building an alternative forum for countries of the Global South. BRICS countries represent 40% of the world's population and a quarter of the world's economy, and the group is now considering a possible expansion to more than 20 other countries. " BRICS is an instrument to push forward their political views, which they feel are not taken seriously, " says Prashad, director of the Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research. Prashad explains the history of BRICS and its New Development Bank and responds to criticism that BRICS falsely portrays itself as an anti-imperialist project.

Niger raises Uranium price from €0.80/kg to €200/kg!

The New Africa Channel   Niger Raises Uranium Price  From €0.80/kg to €200/kg - In a groundbreaking development that signals a seismic shift in the global resource market, Niger, a prominent player in the uranium industry, has reportedly taken a bold step towards securing fair compensation for its invaluable natural resource, uranium. Multiple reports suggest that Niger has substantially increased the price of its uranium, skyrocketing it from a mere €0.80 per kilogram to €200 per kilogram.    This remarkable decision underscores a burgeoning determination among African nations to break free from historical imbalances and demand equitable remuneration for their vital contributions to the global economy.  According to the World Nuclear Association (WNA), Niger is the world's seventh-largest uranium producer. The radioactive metal is the most widely used fuel for nuclear energy. It is also utilised in cancer treatment, naval propulsion, and nuclear weapons.   Uranium prices increased

Poverty in Britain - Why are millions of Brits so broke?

DW Documentary   Britain has a historically low unemployment rate of 3.6%. Yet poverty levels are breaking all records. It’s a paradoxical situation: almost 15 million Britons are considered poor these days, although there’s almost full employment. The reason: inflation and high energy costs. Galloping inflation and a dramatic spike in energy costs in recent months are forcing millions of Britons into poverty. Wages fluctuate in an "uberized” working world of precarious employment conditions. Over the past 10 years, beginning with David Cameron, the government has scaled back its support to vulnerable members of society. The result: reduced life expectancy. Disadvantaged Britons are dying 10 years sooner than their wealthier compatriots - victims of what’s become known as the "shit life syndrome” - a life marked by poor living conditions, disease and addiction. The documentary profiles people who have a job but can still afford nothing - from Blackpool in the west, to Ashton-

"The other 9/11": Ariel Dorfman on 50th anniversary of US-backed coup in Chile that ousted Allende

Democracy Now!   50th anniversary of what is sometimes called the "other 9/11" — the U.S.-backed coup in Chile, when General Augusto Pinochet ousted President Salvador Allende and inaugurated almost two decades of brutal military rule.    Allende died in the presidential palace on September 11, 1973, marking the end of Chile's first socialist government.    During Pinochet's military dictatorship, more than 3,000 people were disappeared or killed, and some 40,000 more were tortured as political prisoners as Chile remained a close partner to the United States during the Cold War.    " We're still living in some sense under the shadow of Pinochet, and of course we're living under the gigantic light … of Salvador Allende, " says renowned Chilean writer Ariel Dorfman, who served as a cultural adviser to Allende from 1970 to 1973 before going into exile following the coup. His latest novel, "The Suicide Museum", explores the mystery around Allen
