“In judging of a community, we have to consider, not only how much of good or evil there is within the community, but also what effects it has in promoting good or evil in other communities, and how far the good things which it enjoys depend upon evils elsewhere.” Bertrand Russell
Really, what’s wrong with free trade? I’m not talking about commodities, I am talking the free trade of ideas, political structure and social governance….except, imagine this ‘free trade’ with a caveat. It only flows one way, from a country that has democratically elected a reality star to be the Commander in Chief, to every other obsequious nation willing to sustain a permanent wedgie to appease it.
Gaddafi’s Dilemma – When America told Lybia what to do
Muammar Gaddafi was an anomaly. He became Lybia’s defacto leader in 1969 and maintained a 41 year rule. He usurped King Indris in a revolutionary bloodless coup d’etat.
Within his 41 year reign, he turned Lybia, from one of the poorest African nations into one of the richest. Gaddafi’s Lybian Arab Republic government ensured that free education, health care, electricity and heavily subsidised housing was provided to all citizens.
He was an advocate for anti- colonialism and gave support to Nelson Mandela’s movement, the Palestinian Liberation group and the Irish Army. He was very anti Zionist and very pro Black Civil Rights.
If you read his Green Book, you will find a man who is a lot more philosophical then the West paints him to be. Click here to read the PDF – Green Book
A Dictator’s Philosophy
” Political struggle that results in the victory of a candidate with, for example, 51 per cent of the votes leads to a dictatorial governing body in the guise of a false democracy, since 49 per cent of the electorate is ruled by an instrument of government they did not vote for, but which has been imposed upon them. Such is dictatorship. ” Gaddafi on the fallacy of democracy which is infact, dictatorship by differing degrees.
” The latest age of slavery has been the enslavement of Blacks by White people. The memory of this age will persist in the thinking of Black people until they have vindicated themselves.” This is an issue that is a lot deeper than what the West is willing to contend with, it does not only rest with reparations.
” The same holds true of the crowds who, because of ignorance, fail to practise sport by and for themselves. They are fooled by monopolistic instruments which endeavour to stupefy them and divert them to indulging in laughter and applause instead. Sport, as a social activity, must be for the masses, just as power, wealth and arms should be in the hands of the people.”. This is the stroke of brilliance in the mundane that the world refuses to acknowledge about Gaddafi. Sports, hobbies, spirituality are analogous to everything else which has value in life. Why are we content to be spectators when nature has ordained us to be participants?
Did he deserve to be violated with a bayonet?
The oft repeated recriminations against Gaddafi is human rights violations, yet few venture beyond a headline. Gaddafi was in a geopolitical quagmire which saw him halting the onslaught of Al Qaeda terrorists and the influx of Africans into European nations.
People who question the veracity of this, need only look at the depredated state of Lybia and the European refugee crisis now that Gaddafi has been removed, and juxtapose this with the Lybia under Gaddafi’s rule. Click here to watch a prescient Gaddafi
Lybia is now a failed state.
The hubris of the American Empire to castigate those who exercise due diligence by prioritising their own needs above those of America, are punishable by death. The spurious claim of liberating citizens from a despotic leader by the American Empire is a plot that has been put on a loop, yet despite its contemptible screen play, cheesy BGM and starring a bevy of actors suffering from Cotard’s Delusion, it still remains a box office hit.
Time and time again, every empire has failed to produce a higher standard of living and being when they put the colonised in manacles while extirpating their culture which took centuries, if not milleninna, to build. The successful empires of Kublai Khan (Mongolian) and Cyrus the Great (Persian), allowed the local culture to perpetuate and flourish, a notion entirely anathema to Western ideology.
If you can’t even understand air conditioning, what makes you think you can understand human nature? – When America told Japan how to design.
According to Kenko Hoshi in Tsurezuregusa, Japanese homes were built to withstand the high humid Summers but were poor heat trappers in Winter. The Japanese overcame the drawback by layering clothes and keeping warm over a hibachi (heater).
As per usual, after WW2, the West decided to bombard the Japanese with their swanky air conditioning units and advised the Japanese to design homes with more walls and less shoji screens (Japanese paper partition). Considering how small Japanese living premises are, this lead to a low adiabatic efficiency of the home which rendered huge amounts of energy to cool in Summer. The poor insulation compounded the problems in Winter too, causing condensation to form quickly, resulting in a mold and mildew problem in homes. Paraphrased from Beyond the Limits to Growth by Hiroshi Komiyama. Click here for the book (I receive no commission)
Redesigning the Japanese home based on American climatic adaptions resulted in a myriad of issues for the Japanese, including the elderly being more prone to disorientation due to temperature differences within the home.
Traditionally, when the Japanese were left to their own devices, they were capable of designing well ventilated homes suitable to the erratic weather conditions of Japan.
Once again, to simply export Western concepts to other places sans alteration leads to vexation, not gratitude. Introducing something foreign into the system without an evolutionary adaptation period is at best, a gross inconvenience and at worst? A destruction of a civilisation.
When America told India to how cultivate rice
According to Vandana Shiva, an Indian scholar, physicist and activist, India used to have over 200,000 varieties of rice alone, now 90% of Indian crop varieties have been exterminated.
Post WW2, America and the World Bank decided to promote the chemical fertiliser industry under the highly deceptive banner of ‘Green Revolution’.
The Green Revolution was America, once again exercising unilateralism in deciding for India, what was ‘good’ for them, this time, via agriculture.
In order for India to secure a loan with the World Bank, they had to abide by America’s demand to use genetically modified Monsanto seeds and all the add ons, like fertilisers and pesticides etc. The modified seeds, unlike the heirloom Indian varieties, were not evolved to withstand the droughts and weather conditions of India, leading to abysmal harvests.
I have read a lot of ‘debunkers’ on the deleterious effects of Monsanto products and this is all I have to say.
Will they use Agent Orange as a herbicide? Click here watch a 3 min video on the devastating effects of this toxic defoliant.
Will they drink a glass of Round Up to prove that Monsanto is producing beneficiary products with no carcinogenic effects as touted by ‘independant’ scientist, Dr Patrick Moore? Click here to watch Dr Moore getting reamed!
Will they rear their own children on produce based solely on terminator seed crops? Terminator seeds are sterile seeds incapable of fertilisation. Click here to read – Terminator Seeds
My guess is a resounding NO. Yet somehow, when it comes to imposing dubious chemical cocktails globally, it is not only excusable, but unequivocally championed as a liberator of poverty, a promoter of democracy lending to a girth expansion of the plutocracy.
America, BUTT OUT!
I am calling out the Western empires and America specifically.
How can any one nation, have the bellicosity and haughtiness within its 243 year old life, to believe that it has the key to unlock the complex nature of the civilisations which have evolved to be the contemporary Chinese, Iranians, Indians and every other damn nationality that exists?
Since I opened with Russell, I will close with him as well. This is what he thought of the Western forces in the 1920s and prior, forcing its will upon a weak China.
“They Understand their own country, and we do not. If they are let alone, they will, in the end, find a solution suitable to their character, which we shall certainly not do. A solution slowly reached by themselves may be stable, whereas one prematurely imposed by outside Powers will be artificial and therefore unstable.“
