First reactions for the German election results as a perfect example of how the establishment exploits the rise of the far-right
by system failure
First reactions for the results of the recent German elections showed how masterfully the neoliberal regime in Germany and Europe exploits the rise of the far-right.
We do not underestimate the dangerous rise of the far-right in Germany (and elsewhere), yet it would be useful to identify the main purpose behind the alarming headlines in most of the mainstream media about this fact around Europe.
The vast majority of the mainstream media (and even independent media), focused on the dangerous rise of the Alternative for Germany (AfD), the right-wing populist and eurosceptic political party in Germany. Indeed, the rise is really impressive and cannot be underestimated considering that in previous elections AfD had gained zero seats with only 4.7%.
However, this is a perfect opportunity for the neoliberal establishment to exploit such a terrifying rise of the far-right at least in two ways:
- First, the far-right scary monster will be used to disorientate public from what is about to become the new establishment: a neofeudal federal Europe under the tight scrutiny of the Brussels-Berlin axis, dominated by banks and corporations where labor rights, welfare state, social justice, civil liberties will become memories of the past. All in the name of growth, competition and security. We've already seen Angela Merkel essentially announcing the end of the welfare state even inside Germany.
- Second, the far-right will be used by the neoliberal regime as a political weapon to launch a fierce counterattack against all who dare to criticize its brutally-imposed policies. From now on, anyone who will dare to protest against the neoliberal barbarism, not aligned with the establishment's new conditions based on the Greek experiment, will be considered responsible for 'feeding' the far-right. We've seen something similar in the latest US elections where the mainstream propaganda painted real progressives, who supported Bernie Sanders against Hillary Clinton, as being one of the main reasons for the rise of Donald Trump in power.
Indeed, some real progressives, coming from what the establishment calls 'far-left', even from various independent media, have already been dragged into this political trap. Some spoke about nightmares of the past, claiming that the political scenery in Germany right now dangerously resembles the situation in pre-WWII Germany.
It seems that the establishment mechanisms have studied thoroughly the 'psycho-synthesis' of modern left and therefore, know how to play the game. The worst nightmare of today's progressives, is to be accused of fueling the fire of the far-right across Europe. Inevitably, they were immediately aligned behind the headlines of the mainstream media, and therefore, didn't dare to mention what another term of a coalition government under Angela Merkel leadership would really mean for Germany and Europe.
Well, here is the ugly truth: Merkel is very close to implement all the neofeudal conditions in favor of the elites. As the experiment in Greece is almost completed, she will have all the time to implement it throughout Europe and even inside Germany. Then, her party will suffer an unprecedented defeat and she will leave because simply, her real mission will have been accomplished. And then, the new oligarchs of Europe will unleash the blood-thirsty dogs of the far-right as one of their most useful tools, in order to suppress any popular resistance.
Historically, in times of social upheaval, the big capital always uses the forces of the far-right to maintain its power and dominance over the majority. The left, once again, didn't dare to confront directly the establishment. The leftist political leaderships in Europe should realize at last that, as long as they don't dare to lead a real fight against the neoliberal regime, more and more impoverished citizens will be attracted by the far-right.
And when the far-right monster will become significantly strong, it will be extremely difficult to be confronted ...
