Again and again it is clearly demonstrated that Western culture couldn’t be trusted.
This “culture” had already mercilessly slaughtered several hundreds of millions of people in all corners of the world; it enslaved entire continents, and plundered all that had any value, whether it was located above or under the surface of earth. Inhabitants of Europe, the United States, as well as rulers of the client states, showed chilling indifference towards the suffering of their victims. They also demonstrated utmost ignorance and the highest level of indoctrination! Andre Vltchek is a philosopher, novelist, filmmaker and investigative journalist. His latest books are: “Exposing Lies Of The Empire” and “Fighting Against Western Imperialism”. Vltchek has written an informative article, published by "teleSUR" TV online, on the ‘culture’ of Western civilization and the Westerners’Ignorance and Indoctrination that has led to killing of millions of innocents.
For centuries, citizens of France, United Kingdom, Belgium, Spain, Portugal and other Western nations were staring at the battle ships leaving their shores, sailing towards Asia, Latin America and Africa ... Mouths open wide; they were pretending that they did not really know what horrors these ships were going to spread. When the ships returned, they shut down their brains, claimed ignorance once again, attributing thriving of their cities and states to so-called “Western ingenuity, enterprising spirit and hard work,” but definitely not to terror, rape and appalling plunder of the world!
What Germans did, if believed to be so, gazing at the chimneys of the concentration camps and the victims of a limited Holocaust and then claiming that “they did not know”, was exactly what all Europeans did for centuries and millennia, when their troops and “investments” into all sorts of wars, were looting and brutalizing everyone on the surface of our Planet in very larger scale.
Throughout the history, holocausts have been performed, again and again, all over Africa, in the Middle East, in Latin America, Caribbean, sub-Continent, and Asia Pacific, even in Oceania.
The Westerners never lifted a finger to stop crimes that their states have been committing! Their servile and cowardly intellectuals are still refusing, with some tiny exceptions that do not constitute even 1 percent, to depict gruesome destruction, humiliation and torment of “the others”. Some Western philosophers are locked at the sclerotic institutions called universities, whoring for tenures, instead of describing the world in all its sickening dismay. The media and artists are not fairing any better.
Their capitalism and nihilism are brainwashing people all over the world, while driving them into dark valleys of despair.
It is because their weapons of mass destruction are the deadliest, their propaganda the most advanced, their opposition the most indoctrinated and their opposition almost non-existent!
War after war, genocide after genocide, the Westerners are still playing dumb! They refuse to acknowledge whet they are doing to the world.
When over 100 French people died during a bizarre recent string of attacks in Paris, Europeans began mourning their own victims – and pointing fingers at “the others”.
Part of “The Jungle”, a terrible refugee camp near the French city of Calais, went ablaze. Refugees got attacked all over Europe, as “retaliation”. But retaliation for what? After all, refugees were only escaping their countries that were ruined and plundered by both Europe and the United States!
But this is not how a common European was instructed to see the world.
The common European and North American is much more submissive to the regime, than a common inhabitant of any other part of the world. He or she learns what is required to be learned, listens attentively what the media/propaganda people digest and serve. Debates are almost always within the permitted framework.
A common citizen, not all, of a Western country devours hours of bizarre entertainment daily including “news entertainment”. They watch dozens of propaganda films and clips, every year. He or she can hardly make any distinction between reality and fiction, anymore. Such a citizen is willing to sacrifice billions of men, women and children all over the world just for their own material benefits and wellbeing. All he or she knows, all he or she feels, somehow abstractly, is that they are somehow “superior” to the rest of humanity; that their culture is exceptional and predestined to rule the world. All he or she senses is that he or she has the right to consume and to use all the natural resources of the world, and that their government can decide which country outside the Western realm should be allowed to stand and which would be forced to fall, if they could.
Millions of human lives lost in the Middle East, tens of millions of men, women and children murdered by imperialism in Africa? Who cares? Who bloody cares? Westerner eats, copulates, sometimes works and then he either tries to enjoy his life, or he fights for much better benefits... for himself, or for herself. Rest of the world is there to provide or to subsidize such benefits; that is all, if studied carefully between the lines.
Unfortunately, you see people like this, controlling all international organizations, even the UN agencies. No apologies, no remorse, no grand plan for how to reverse the flow, how to return at least some part of what had been stolen and how to stop murdering. However, everywhere you go, you read stuff like “May Peace Prevail on Earth!” A mere gimmick!
Yes, over 100 people died in Paris. Right before that, almost 50 died in Beirut, Lebanon. While thousands are dying in Yemen, every month... While thousands of lives already lost their lives in Iran – victims of West-sponsored terrorism... While hundreds of thousands have been dying in Libya and Syria... While millions have been dying in Somalia and Iraq... While some 10 millions already died in Congo … All of them victims of Western assaults and banditry or of Western-sponsored terrorism directly!
All those terrorists, al-Qaida, al-Nusra, ISIS, and the entire Wahhabi Takfiri fundamentalism all were created first by the British and later North American imperialism. All that vile, toxic stuff had been armed, and financed and serviced by the Europeans, as well as Saudis, Turks and other great allies of the West.
And why was that stuff so diligently armed and financed? So it could, at least on the surface, try to ruin and destroy progressive, socialist Islam, from Egypt to Iran to Indonesia! So it could murder millions of progressive people in those independent nations. So the West could rule, unopposed, grabbing all it wants, deciding who will be governing where!
Syria managed to shock the world by refusing to surrender, by fighting with unimaginable heroism against all odds. Half of its people are on the move, millions of refugees are flooding all shores, but the country is standing tall, injured and bleeding but standing, nevertheless.
And so is Latin America, despite all those vicious attacks from the West. Standing, damn it, standing towering and proud!
And those ignorant, selfish, brutal hordes in the West see nothing. They repeat propaganda injected to their heads, providing slight variations to it, calling it freedom of expression!
After the “Paris attacks”, Western propaganda is in top gear once again. Its apparatchiks were clearly “prepared and ready”. Future direct attacks against Syria are already “justified” well in advance. Not against ISIS, although that would be the official pretext, but against the elected President Bashar al-Assad and his government which is, despite everything, supported by the majority of Syrian people.
Can this planet be entrusted to those who watch crap on their television screens, day after day – both Hollywood propaganda production, and news propaganda briefings?
Can anything that comes from the West be taken seriously, after centuries of lies and murder?
Who is killing whom, lately? Who is behind what? Who is actually killing millions in the Middle East, Africa and Asia?
And the facts are simple and horrendous: The Empire has been murdering tens of millions of people on our planet; The Empire and the self-perpetuated ignorance, fundamentalism and blindness!
