Most NATO nation media dare not cover the real story behind the uprisings raging across all Muslim and incidentally, non-Muslim nations: people are demanding a more socialist society! What a shock! Actually, these are really ‘IMF riots’ in that people are protesting the free trade/floating fiat currency/privatization ideology so dear to the dark hearts of the very, very rich who also happen to be the Davos/Bilderberg gang. The people want to get rid of their most rich and powerful people in their own countries. Truly revolutionary!
I see all over the place the raised fists, the Internationale symbols being used spontaneously by millions of people. They finally figured out who their real enemies are: the very powerful and very rich inside their own countries. Wikileaks pushed this along by revealing exactly how venal, treasonous and two-faced their own rich leaders were, pretending to be against the US ideology and diplomacy while secretly urging this on.
The rich and powerful in all of these second-world countries loved the gnome-banker’s ideology which is, no taxes on the rich, loot the poor and steal all national resources and sell them off to the highest bidders which (EXCEPT FOR CHINESE BIDDERS!) usually are each other! This exploitation of national natural resources has caused tremendous inflation in costs for the masses who have to use water, energy and food to stay alive.
This is why the rich are getting richer while the poor are getting royally pissed off. Here is the only media to openly discuss the true nature of these revolts: A revolution against neoliberalism? – Opinion – Al Jazeera English
- They did not necessarily steal directly from the treasury. Rather they were enriched through a conflation of politics and business under the guise of privatization. This was less a violation of the system than business as usual. Mubarak’s Egypt, in a nutshell, was a quintessential neoliberal state.What is neoliberalism? In his Brief History of Neoliberalism, the eminent social geographer David Harvey outlined “a theory of political economic practices that proposes that human well-being can best be advanced by liberating individual entrepreneurial freedoms and skills within an institutional framework characterised by strong private property rights, free markets, and free trade.”
- Neoliberal states guarantee, by force if necessary, the “proper functioning” of markets; where markets do not exist (for example, in the use of land, water, education, health care, social security, or environmental pollution), then the state should create them.…And the application of utopian neoliberalism in the real world leads to deformed societies as surely as the application of utopian communism did.
- The funds are expected to be seized within days. The Treasury is understood to have set up a unit to trace Col Gaddafi’s assets in Britain, which are thought to include billions of dollars in bank accounts, commercial property and a £10 million mansion in London. In total, the Libyan regime is said to have around £20 billion in liquid assets, mostly in London. These are expected to be frozen as part of an international effort to force the dictator from power. A Whitehall source said: “The first priority is to get British nationals out of Libya. But then we are ready to move in on Gaddafi’s assets, the work is under way. This is definitely on the radar at the highest levels.”
- …to the reports, Saif al-Arab, Gaddafi’s youngest son, who was sent by his father to cooperate with Libyan security forces in the massive crackdown on pro-democracy protesters joined forces with the demonstrators in the eastern city of Benghazi on Thursday. Saif al-Arab, who is widely regarded as the most low-profile of Gaddafi’s sons have also hinted that his father would commit suicide or flee to Latin America in the face of rising public outcry over his tyrannical rule. Saif al-Arab is said to have had the backing of combat troops and had military equipment that was dispatched to the eastern parts of turmoil-hit Libya.

The best intentioned people can be easily corrupted when presented with power and wealth. The puppet masters could just allow him to keep daddy’s money in exchange for some fake political freedoms.
The problem of growing and hungry underclass would remain until they are no longer needed to exploit.
I believe neoliberalism is not good or not bad. It is necessary for a region where there are no market. It create the condition for the market to exist.
Neoliberalism system cannot be the ideal model for society for ever because it does not define roles of others professions such as doctors, teachers, workers, etc that re present during the creation of market.
When a region in which neoliberalism system have been implemented and cannot grow further, a different system must be implemented. Neoliberalism system change society. When neoliberalism system reach a point of saturation (no progress), society should change to another system to advance further. That does not mean neoliberalism should be abandon, but to add condition for people who are not the main part of neoliberalism to flourish. Thus creating a new type of system.
The question are when will society know neoliberalism system reach saturation point. And what type of system to implement afterward.
Wow! I cannot believe the level of hypocrisy that our leaders are stooping to.
Have they already forgotten the release of the Wikileaks cables? Do they think most Arabs will not notice them seizing Ghadaffi’s assets, but leaving Mubarak’s alone? What about the complete silence on Bahrain killing people versus the outrage (feigned) directed at Libya?
I am too embarrassed to watch anymore statements from the president or anyone in our government about anything. It is just too shameful.
This may not be the same son, but I heard from my B.I.L. that a son of KaDaffy was in Punta del Este in December, that his private jet was at the airport, but, unlike celebrities who visit, nobody was aware that he was there. A very low-key guy. He has a PhD from London School of e-Con, and his thesis was about maximizing the satisfaction of human needs. A class traitor? Another Roosevelt? That’s what I heard.

The object of any existing government is to protect the current economic, social, educational winners. The object of revolution is to select a new set of protectable winners. Only make believe apples fall far from their tree.
