Basic reasons for which the US deep state will try to prevent the rise of the Left in Europe

by system failure

It is certain that various US think tanks will be monitoring right now the rise of the Left in Greece with the radical-Left party SYRIZA, as well as Podemos in Spain and other countries in Europe (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/11/signs-of-resistance-against-neoliberal.html).

It's quite remarkable that the US political system, especially after Clinton administration, has been adopted by Europe, with the transformation of the Social-democrats. A characteristic example is Greece, as the Socialist party PASOK under Kostas Simitis, implemented the neoliberal perception of the free market and the financialization of nearly every aspect of economic activity.

However, as in the US the Left was demonized for decades and totally vanished from the political scene, Europe was meant to be the field of the new Leftist political powers, after the latest global financial crisis. Inevitably, any possible change will start from Europe and follow a reverse direction of that of neoliberalism in the early 90s.

Therefore, a first potential consequence would be that such a possibility could become a good example of an alternative political solution against the bipolar plutocratic political establishment in the US, which was enhanced rapidly after Clinton administration in the early 90s, secured big capital's interests and left no choice to the majority of the American people to vote for their interests.

A second consequence for the US deep state would be the loss of Europe in the new Cold War. Except from Britons, who have traditional deep ties and common interests with the US, the rest of Europe could slip to the Sino-Russian bloc which grows rapidly in the military and economic field and increasingly gaining independence from the Western economic system, attracting other countries too. (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/08/a-perfect-timing-for-argentina-to.html)

A third consequence would be the abrupt termination of the Greek experiment and its deployment in Europe and the US. This could trigger a reverse situation against the accelerated expansion of the neoliberal doctrine* in its most extreme version as a forerunner for the new global Feudalism.

Plutocrats will do whatever necessary to buy more time. The war already started in Europe. The systemic establishment in Greece try to present SYRIZA as a non-serious political power and downgrade the rapid change of the Greek and the European political scene especially after the latest euro-elections. At the same time, current government is ready to collapse and therefore already tries to force the Left to compromise and agree on the catastrophic measures imposed by Troika. SYRIZA, of course, refused to do this and asks for immediate elections.

Post-WWII history shows that the United States tried to prevent the rise of the Left in Europe during the whole period of the Cold War, because of the fear of the Soviet further expansion. This was done through provocative operations against Leftist organizations (Gladio in Italy) (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/10/an-example-of-provocative-operations-in.html), or, by supporting dictatorial regimes (junta in Greece) (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/04/black-anniversary.html), etc. Surely, the US deep state will try to prevent a domino of rise of the Left in Europe, for one more time, as this will probably bring serious trouble to the economic elites both in the US and Europe. The propaganda by the mainstream media already started.

All these scenarios, however, could also make neocons even more anxious to impose their lunatic plans to provoke a general conflict with Russia as the only alternative against the dramatic shift of the global geopolitical balance, unless we see a fast creation of a corresponding political power in the US inspired by the European Left. It would be even better if such a power could rise from the movements in the streets (Occupy movement, etc.), like Podemos in Spain.

A unified Left could trigger rapid changes globally against the neoliberal expansion, destroying plutocracy's plans for total domination. Of course this would require to remain ideologically pure, not to be transformed and absorbed by the neoliberal perception like Social-democrats. Οtherwise, the new political gap could trigger unprecedented and uncontrolled, chaotic situations, in the absence of any other political alternative that could fill it.



* According to these plans, the ultimate goal would be probably to dissolve the vast Russian territory in future and bring in power Western-friendly puppet regimes, in order not only to conquer the valuable resources, but also to impose permanently the neoliberal doctrine on "unexplored" regions and populations.

  1. You are dead wrong. The "left" is dead in the waters in Europe and for good reason. Nationalism is coming back. Right wing conservatism.

    Yet a third anonymous...
    It's not about right or left anymore, it's about liberal/anti-liberal. Liberalism as evolved into neo-liberalism, a unregulated free trade monstrosity that's starving populations worldwide.
    Two forces are actively anti-liberal: the extreme left wing, and patriotic right wing conservatism - though not in the USA, where no such thing as an anti-liberal thought exists. The union of those two forces, in Europe, fought the Nazis in WW2 - they were the interior resistance in the occupied countries. They are truly anti-totalitarian, one though its statist stance (the state as the incarnation of the majority's will and not the corrupt thing they call "state" in the USA) and income equality claims, the other through statism (yes, them too, and with the same meaning as for the left wing), patriotism and the refusal to surrender to supra-national or foreign forces.

    Forth anonymous....it is really about US hegemony and the continued domination by Washington of its vassal states in Europe. The idiots in Washington would have liked Russia as a vassal state but Putin is not playing that game. However, their thick headed response has served to push Russia and China together and started to fragment Europe. Outcomes that will be disastrous for the US Empire and even Kissinger has got out of his coffin to say so. I don’t think a shift to the right across Europe would guarantee slavish support for the US Empire either. I do think that the ‘EU’ as a project is doomed as its underlying financial system will unravel.

Int'l Criminal Court Seeks Arrest Warrants for Netanyahu, Gallant & Hamas Leaders for War Crimes

Democracy Now!   The chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has announced he is seeking arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant and three leaders of Hamas: Yahya Sinwar, Ismail Haniyeh and Mohammed Deif.    The charges against Netanyahu and Gallant include starvation of civilians, extermination, intentionally directing attacks against a civilian population, among other crimes. The charges against the Hamas leaders include extermination, murder, taking hostages, rape, among other crimes.    " It places Israel's leaders of this genocidal onslaught on the Gaza Strip in the dock, " says Middle East analyst Mouin Rabbani, who explains why this will be " very significant " for Israel's allies and signatories to the ICC. " They now have to make a choice between Israeli impunity and obligations under the Rome Statute. " 

Day 1900: Julian Assange still in prison and under slow-motion execution by the Anglo-American imperialist criminals

failed evolution   On 11 April 2019, the Ecuadorian government of traitor Lenin Moreno, invited the Metropolitan Police into the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and they arrested Julian Assange . Since then, Assange is kept in Belmarsh high security prison in London, without actual charges.   The real reason world's number one political prisoner is still kept in this high security prison, is because he exposed horrendous war crimes carried out by the US imperialists and their allies.   The ruthless Western imperialist regime wants to punish the No1 real journalist in the world and make him an example for any Whistleblower or real journalist who will attempt to expose its big crimes in the future.   And the Anglo-American axis has now become officially a fascist coalition , framed by the rest of its Western pets. UK's Home Secretary Priti Patel, one of the most ruthless ever, decided to extradite Julian Assange to US. No surprise of course. The only question we had in mind is

The peculiar fascism of the extreme center

The slide of the "extreme center" towards fascism becomes increasingly visible throughout the West   by system failure   Part 1 - The rise and transformation of the extreme center   The starting point of the political component of what is considered "extreme center" today, could be placed in the early 80s. The political dominance of neoliberalism begins with Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher in the US and UK respectively. It is perhaps impressive that this first wave of political dominance of the neoliberal ideology came with the help of the most conservative part of both American and British societies. It is characteristic that Reagan's rise to power became possible with the help of the Christian Right, which mobilized millions of conservative Americans, who until then had abstained from the electoral process. The political dominance of neoliberal ideology concluded about a decade later, in the early 90s, with the total ideological transformation of the Democ

US-EU assets pushing color revolution in Georgia

Over 25,000 NGOs are active in Georgia, and most rely on funding from Europe and the US. A new bill aiming to reign in Western meddling has sparked furious anti-government protests explicitly encouraged by Washington. by Kit Klarenberg   Part 1   A dark political atmosphere is swirling over the Georgian capital of Tbilisi, and grows more ominous by the day. Prime Minister Irakli Kobakhidze has been told by an EU commissioner he will suffer the fate of Robert Fico, the Slovakian leader still fighting for his life after an assassination attempt by a Ukraine proxy war ultra. US lawmakers are moving to sanction members of the ruling Georgian Dream party, and in parliament on May 14, opposition MP Tako Charkviani threatened: “ Believe me, there will be a color revolution in Georgia. ” The cause of this tumult is a bill known as the “foreign influence transparency” law which would compel organizations to publicly disclose their foreign funding.
