Radical 'exterminism': will the elites launch nuclear war to wipe out the armies of the poor?

by system failure

Science fiction writer Peter Frase, in his book Four Futures, puts forward the "robo-revelation" scenario a step further by introducing the idea of 'exterminism': in the not too distant future, the waves of the unemployed who have lost the latest tools of labor demands, such as strikes, would be a direct threat to the survival of the rich who will control the robots. Then, the owners of the new means of production will consider the mass extermination of the unemployed by techniques that will refer to Hitler's holocaust.

Is there any more nightmarish scenario than this? Probably there is. At the point where the elites will construct full self-efficient shelters with hyper-automated robots doing all jobs, there will be no need for 'excessive' human presence. The 1% may decide to launch a nuclear war to get rid of the armies of the poor as fast as possible, in order to prevent the risk of a rebound from the 99%. This is probably the most Dystopian scenario of all.


All signs show that current culture of brutal neoliberalism has been designed for such a purpose. While in previous decades, free market fundamentalists were promising a capitalist paradise for the many, the global neoliberal apparatus is transforming the ideology of promised paradise into an ideology of necessities. In the name of growth, competition and stability, wages and pensions must be slaughtered, big companies must get more and more tax-cuts, state control must be eliminated, everything must be privatized. It looks like the 'invisible hand' dreamed by Adam Smith, is rigging the game, buying time, in order to reach the final target: radical extermination of the unnecessary 'load' for the elites.

And the uncritical privatization of everything is probably the most useful element of this evil machine that is going to burn the planet. As robots are taking all jobs and the armies of poor will flood even the Western developed countries, the fully privatized advanced technology will become a monopoly for the big corporations. The armies of poor will end up with zero access to it, and therefore, zero power to resist against the designed holocaust. Governments and states have already become servants of the big multinationals. They follow blindly these 'necessities' imposed by the neoliberal regime.

How did we ended up in this situation? The answer is that this culture of cruel pragmatism, extreme cynicism and radical individualism, has poisoned the minds of the many, especially in the West. Decades of brainwash by the 'factories' of the neoliberal establishment made people accept pathetically situations like wars, poverty, mass-killings, as something natural that is part of human nature. Despite all protests in the streets, the average person in the West has been trained to compromise with such realities as something inevitable. Western neo-rationalism has been 'equipped' with such a perception.

The neoliberal regime now goes further to implement the final stage. As scandals about government interceptions against millions of citizens become a routine, people start getting used to the idea. Terrorist attacks inside the Western urban centers are being used in the context of a fear factory for the purpose of making people accept the militarization of these centers. War and conflict is being rapidly privatized with monstrous corporations - in association with the traditional military-industrial complex - promoting for-profit wars.

This last stage involves even the preparation of the masses for a nuclear war! Establishment tools recruit neoliberal “rationalism” to prepare public for such a nightmarish perspective.

Besides, inside current environment with the big corporations having enormous power, patents and copyrights fully protected by the states on behalf of private institutions, how do we know that the elites didn't already found a cure for cancer and radioactivity? Or even a cure for all deceases and even aging? With all that power and knowledge in their hands, why would they share it with us? This shows why the dominant culture promotes privatizations and uses the state only to protect private monopolies. And why all the knowledge and technological progress should be carried out by public institutions so that to spread it throughout society.


Technology evolves rapidly. Once super-intelligent machines will reach to the point of doing anything without the need for the slightest human interference, it could be a good time for the ruthless elites to push the button of destruction and get rid of the rest of us for good. All they need is someone like Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un to put in front as minimum justification for their actions, right before the day of nuclear Apocalypse.

An optimistic scenario:

    Nah, they won't use nuclear weapons. They will use "weaponized" viruses (viri-??) to kill off huge segments of humanity . I too have no doubt that the end game is the reduction of the human population to no more than 2 billion, and possibly less than one billion (500,000,000 as a "sustainable" global population is a figure I see cited quite a bit now.)

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…

Κυβέρνηση Σαμαρά: Πιο νεοφιλελεύθερη και από την Τρόικα!

Ο πρόεδρος της επιτροπής για θέματα ανταγωνισμού του Επαγγελματικού Επιμελητηρίου Αθηνών, Γιώργος Φλωράς, αποκάλυψε στην εκπομπή του δημοσιογράφου, Νίκου Χατζηνικολάου, ότι η έκθεση του ΟΟΣΑ, με βάση την οποία συντάχθηκε το τελευταίο πολυνομοσχέδιο, είναι ουσιαστικά δημιούργημα του ΙΟΒΕ!
Ανέφερε χαρακτηριστικά ότι:
Οι προτάσεις αυτές δεν είναι του ΟΟΣΑ, αλλά του ΙΟΒΕ και της Επιτροπής Ανταγωνισμού, δηλαδή κυρίως των Χατζηδάκη και Στουρνάρα και ότι η κυβέρνηση στην ουσία χρησιμοποιεί την Τρόικα για να περνάει τις θέσεις των πολυεθνικών, μεγάλων αλυσίδων σούπερ μάρκετ, κ.λ.π.
Ο κ. Χατζηδάκης, τονίζει συνεχώς σε ότι έλεγε ότι 'εμείς χρησιμοποιήσαμε τον ΟΟΣΑ γιατί είναι αντικειμενικός, έχει την αξιοπιστία, έχει τη διεθνή εμπειρία κ.τ.λ.' και γι'αυτό βγήκε και ένα κονδύλι 936.000 ευρώ για να γίνει αυτή η έκθεση. Η έκθεση ξεκινάει αναφέροντας στη σελ. 2 ότι οι θέσεις μέσα σ'αυτή δεν εκφράζουν απαραίτητα τον οργανισμό.
Η έκθεση αυτή δεν είναι του ΟΟΣΑ, είναι μια οργανωμένη απάτ…

It seems that Bernie Sanders got it all wrong again, this time regarding the situation in Venezuela - very disappointing

globinfo freexchange
In an unfortunate series of tweets regarding the situation in Venezuela, Bernie Sanders exposed his weak spot again on foreign policy matters.
Sanders tweeted:
The Maduro government has waged a violent crackdown on Venezuelan civil society, violated the constitution by dissolving the National Assembly and was re-elected last year in an election many observers said was fraudulent. The economy is a disaster and millions are migrating. 1/3 — Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) January 24, 2019
The United States should support the rule of law, fair elections and self-determination for the Venezuelan people. We must condemn the use of violence against unarmed protesters and the suppression of dissent. 2/3 — Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) January 24, 2019
But we must learn the lessons of the past and not be in the business of regime change or supporting coups—as we have in Chile, Guatemala, Brazil & the DR. The US has a long history of inappropriately intervening in Latin Amer…

Canada has been trying to destabilize Venezuela at least since 2004

globinfo freexchange
Paul Jay, editor in chief at The Real News, gave some very interesting information - some based on personal experience - about Canada's total alignment with the US on its imperialist missions against Venezuela and other countries:
Mexico was part of the Lima Group, but now with the new leadership - with AMLO now taking office in Mexico - Mexico is not going along with this plan to recognize Juan Guaido. And Mexico is not the only country of the region. Many, many countries of CARICOM have come forward and have said they do not support this plan. So, the corporate media is trying to make this sound like the whole region is on board with this scheme.
For months, Canada has been playing a leading role in preparing for - according to the Canadian newspapers - for exactly what happened, the recognition of Juan Guaido.
And Canada has been into this scheme for months. And the rationale is supposedly that the election of 2017 was not a legitimate election because people w…

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…

Jeremy Corbyn + Brexit = UK's liberation from the EU neoliberal barbarism

With Tories in power Brexit would be meaningless
globinfo freexchange
As has been mentioned in previous article, Brexit could play a much more critical role in the future course of Europe, apart from being treated just as a result of national pride - wounded Britons alarmed by the sirens of patriotism.
While the Brussels-Berlin axis will seek to implement all the conditions of the Greek experiment inside the EU, the Labour party under Jeremy Corbyn could become an example against this dark future. While the Greek PM, Alexis Tsipras, suffered a heavy defeat as went unprepared in the battle with the ruthless neoliberal priesthood, Corbyn should go to the battle with the neoliberal regime after a good preparation and a well-constructed plan.
Costas Lapavitsas explains why only outside the EU, the UK will have a chance to turn left - with a Labour government under the Corbyn leadership - in order to implement progressive policies for the benefit of the vast majority:
The European Union has bec…

Pompeo's special tweet potentially indirect threat against those who won't follow the orders on Venezuela

globinfo freexchange
After John Bolton indirectly threatened Venezuela with that 'accidental' revelation of about 5,000 US troops to be sent to Colombia, it was Mike Pompeo's turn.
In a peculiar tweet, the other major Trump warhawk essentially sent a clear message to those countries (mostly under the US influence) that refused to recognize Washington's puppet, Juan Guaidó, as the legitimate president of Venezuela.
Pompeo named one by one the countries that obeyed to Washington's orders: “We applaud Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Rep., Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden & UK for supporting Venezuelan people by recognizing @jguaido today as Interim President.
And then he placed a map, colouring the obeyed countries and the US with the same intense color.
We applaud Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Rep., Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Latvi…

#HandsOffVenezuela: Brave Italians show us the path of resistance against the European branch of the neoliberal beast

globinfo freexchange
According to RT, Italy vetoed EU recognition of Venezuelan opposition leader Guaido. As RT reported:
Rome has effectively derailed an EU statement meant to recognize Juan Guaido as Venezuela’s interim leader if President Nicolas Maduro fails to set up snap elections, a Five Star Movement source confirmed to RT.
Italy announced the veto at an informal meeting of EU foreign ministers that started on January 31 in Romania, the source said. The statement, which was supposed to be delivered by EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini recognized Guaido as interim president if snap elections were not held.
The European Parliament is the first European body to recognize Guaido “as the only legitimate interim president of the country until new free, transparent and credible presidential elections can be called in order to restore democracy.
The parliament urged the EU to follow suit but the effort stalled due to internal discord.…

Government shutdown, Venezuela: Donald Trump evolves into the best propagator of neoliberal fascism that tends to become a norm

by system failure
Even before the 2016 US presidential election, this blog supported that Donald Trump is a pure sample of neoliberal barbarism. Many almost laughed at this perception because Trump was being already promoted, more or less, as the 'terminator' of the neoliberal establishment. And many people, especially in the US, tired from the economic disasters, the growing inequality and the endless wars, were anxious to believe that this was indeed his special mission.
Right after the elections, we supported that the US establishment gave a brilliant performance by putting its reserve, Donald Trump, in power, against the only candidate that the same establishment identified as a real threat: Bernie Sanders.
Then, Trump sent the first shock wave to his supporters by literally hiring the Goldman Sachs banksters to run the economy. And right after that, he signed for more deregulation in favor of the Wall Street mafia that ruined the economy in 2008.
In 2017, Trump bombed Syria f…

EU parliament drops final leaf, recognizes Washington's puppet Juan Guaido in Venezuela

globinfo freexchange
The European branch of the global neoliberal fascism did what was expected: obey to the orders of the US imperialist empire and recognize Washington's puppet Juan Guaido as the 'legitimate' president of Venezuela.
As Al Jazeera reported:
The European Parliament has recognised Venezuela's self-declared interim president Juan Guaido as de facto head of state, heightening international pressure on the OPEC member's socialist President Nicolas Maduro. EU politicians voted 429 in favour to 104 against, with 88 abstentions, at a special session in Brussels on Thursday to recognise Guaido as interim leader.
Meanwhile, the EU parliament wouldn't even think to 'dare' to challenge the legitimacy of Emmanuel Macron in France, even with all these people protesting in the streets. At the same time, the establishment media try to direct the public attention from the Yellow Vest movement towards the situation in Venezuela.
It doesn't matter that N…
