The merits are hard to stomach for partisans long jaundiced by presumption and dislike, but the cheer at the deplatforming of Donald Trump by a range of social media platforms said as much about the nature of any sentiment about democracy as it did about those claiming to defend it. […]
President Biden has announced the forthcoming creation of an international organisation of democracies in the face of the rise of authoritarian Russian and Chinese regimes. Contrary to the official rhetoric, this is not about defending democracies, but about promoting US imperialism. This fight is futile because it has chosen the wrong opponent.
The division of the world into “democracies” and “autocracies” is an inaccurate reflection of reality. There are just governments, and each has elements of these two categories within them, albeit to differing extents depending on the particularities of the national model presently in practice. US President Joe Biden told American […]
The US organisation Freedom House recently published its latest report on the state of civil liberties around the world. It should be mentioned straight away that its authors have a particular understanding of freedom. This is John Stuart Mill’s transformed idea of negative freedom; i.e., freedom from obligations, traditions, values, […]
President Biden’s state of health will not allow him to govern. Already a group of activists are preparing his decisions. Quite far from his electoral programme, he has signed decrees representing a “woke” culture that distances him from the majority of his fellow citizens. However, nothing can be done about it, the extreme-left groups have already demonstrated against him. The United States is sinking into division.
Everything has an end, so do empires, both the United States and the Soviet Union. Washington has outrageously favoured a small camarilla of ultra-billionaires. Now it has to face its old demons, prepare for secession and civil war.
Despite Trump agreeing to leave the White House next Wednesday after losing the election under contentious circumstances, the Democrats and their “Republican In Name Only” (RINO) allies pushed Trump’s historic second impeachment through the House on allegations that he “incited insurrection” in order to delegitimize his legacy, intimidate his supporters, […]
The Trump-inspired “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) movement must either rehabilitate or purge the QAnon cultists in its ranks because they’re discrediting and potentially even dangerous, to say nothing of the fact that their very association with MAGA provides the “deep state” with the seemingly “plausible pretext” to push forward […]
The seizure of the Capitol by supporters of President Trump is presented as an attempted coup, while he is still in the White House. On closer inspection, it could be the other way around. Freedom of speech has been confiscated by an illegitimate power in favour of Joe Biden.
The year 2021 began with some dark, watershed moments for the US. On 1 January, Democrats in the House of Representatives introduced a new bill that represents the next step in the abolition of traditional family values and sex (gender) differences. The pronouns “he” and “she” will no longer be […]
This was Twitter Safety’s January 8 post, full of noble concern: “After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them – specifically how they are being received and interpreted off Twitter – we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further […]
In a poignant remark, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas reacted to the dramatic events in Washington, DC, on Wednesday — the storming of the Capitol building and President Donald Trump’s attempted coup — by recalling that Hitler’s seizure of total power started with the burning of the Reichstag in 1933.
