Worst Year Ever ?

che9

It seems to be the fashion, especially among the young, naive and imperfectly educated, to describe 2016, ludicrously, as ”the worst ever year”.

Even the latest TV ad for the de-sensitizing brainwash ‘game’ Call of Duty cynically makes use of this grossly flawed (and self-righteous) interpretation of events. Presumably the reference is to Brexit and Trump, two historic blows delivered by ordinary voters to the neo-liberal, corporatist establishment. Now protesters are on the street, ridiculously demonstrating – against what ? – absurdly, against the democratically-expressed dissatisfaction of austerity-hammered people !

What a testament to the efficiency of neo-liberal brainwashing it is, that well-meaning people actually feel moved to protest against, of all things, a predominantly working-class, grass-roots rejection of the kleptocratic elite’s globalist, neo-feudal agenda.


”Those protesting and rioting right now because they are more concerned about Donald Trump’s words and rhetoric, but cannot find it amidst their crocodile tears and their myopic self-absorbed selective moral outrages to even have an iota of anger at Hillary Clinton’s track-record of actual murderous policies, are seriously indicative of some of what’s wrong with the state of modern America, and the bankruptcy of their own ideology whose outer rhetorical shell masks the inherent reality of their own paternalistic racism, “humanitarian” militarism and bourgeois trendy consumerism.” ~ (Brandon Martinez, Non-Aligned Media)
