The MH17 tragedy may have been a horrendous mistake, but it may also have been a desperate gambit by the Kiev minions of the Empire of Chaos. Washington has been quick off the blocks to ignite and in theory win the spin war to persuade the world that Russia's hand was wittingly or otherwise behind the downing of the civilian aircraft. Moscow, more rationally, is seeking the facts first, before pointing fingers of blame. - Pepe Escobar (Jul 23, '14)

Washington, D.C., is a world unto itself: inside the bubble, where politicians and their kept pundits endlessly massage each others’ egos (and bank accounts), the world is America’s oyster, to be greedily gulped and washed down with a swig of the Imperial City’s most popular intoxicant – hubris. Oblivious to the unwholesome spectacle of their […]

It is difficult to pinpoint exactly when it happened, but clear evidence can be seen at least in the aftermath of World War II. Some trace the origins back to 1898 and the Spanish-American War, or even earlier to the War of 1812. And still others would say that imperial ambitions were even on the […]

 10.3.2010 12:25 Da geht mir der Hut hoch!
Was hier im Gewand von Wissenschaft daherkommt ist reine Ideologie. Wre sie auf die Vereinigten Staaten beschrnkt, knnte dies der Rest der Welt verschmerzen. Das ist jedoch nicht der Fall. Und so besteht die konomische Freiheit nicht in der Freiheit souverner Staaten, die ihren jeweiligen kulturellen Traditionen und spezifischen gesellschaftlichen Bedingungen gemen Wirtschaftsmodelle zu entwickeln. Vielmehr werden sie durch die Dominanz des Dollarsystems und seine global wirkenden Institutionen gezwungen, das angelschsische Modell der freien Wirtschaft zu bernehmen, fr das sich der Begriff Washington Consensus eingebrgert hat. Dieses Modell wurde nach 1945 zunchst schleichend und nach dem Vertrag von Maastricht mit zunehmender Beschleunigung von der Europischen Union bernommen und ist seit 1.
