Mohsen Abdelmoumen: In societies under total domination of ultra-liberalism and banks like Goldman Sachs and others, can we still talk about democracy and social justice?

Dr. Thomas Harrington: While I will not say it is impossible, it is certainly very, very difficult to do so in the present context.

The US defeat in Vietnam, followed shortly thereafter by Watergate, truly frightened the US elites. They realized that if the expectation of real democracy–rooted in the simple idea that the government should be accountable to the citizenry–were to continue to grow among the general population of the country as it did in the late 60s and early 70s, their ability to pursue the project of dominating the world’s economy and the world’s resources would be heartily diminished.

Michael Parenti.DR.

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: After reading your powerful and very strong book about imperialism, “The Face of Imperialism”, we feel the need to read again Lenin’s « Imperialism the Highest Stage of Capitalism« , because your book brings added value. What do you think?

Michael Parenti: It is generous of you to claim that my work adds value to Lenin’s.  I read his book forty years ago so I cannot claim to be drawing directly from it. But certainly we can say my book was doing some of the same things that his had done, for instance: trying to show the link between capitalism and colonial imperialism,  revealing the key role played by cartels, and how the imposing contradictions of capitalism work themselves out in brutal imperatives.

Ucrania y los neonazis

Desde que estalló la grave protesta en Ucrania en febrero pasado los medios de comunicación occidentales, sobre todo en Estados Unidos, ha restado importancia y seriedad al hecho de que los sospechosos de siempre – el triunvirato formado por EE.UU.-UE-OTAN han estado en el mismo lado que los grupos neo-Nazis. Esto ha sido prácticamente innombrable en los EE.UU.. Estoy seguro de que una encuesta realizada en los Estados Unidos sobre esta cuestión revelaría mucho sobre la ignorancia general del pueblo de Estados Unidos sobre las numerosas acciones neonazis, incluyendo la de pedir públicamente la muerte de « todos los rusos, de los comunistas y los Judios ». Pero en esta última semana este pequeño secreto sucio, de alguna manera, ha asomado un poco su cabeza desde detrás de la cortina de censura de prensa donde se esconde. Lire la suite »

Ukraine and neo-Nazis

Ever since serious protest broke out in Ukraine in February the Western mainstream media, particularly in the United States, has seriously downplayed the fact that the usual suspects – the US/European Union/NATO triumvirate – have been on the same side as the neo-Nazis. In the US it’s been virtually unmentionable. I’m sure that a poll taken in the United States on this issue would reveal near universal ignorance of the numerous neo-Nazi actions, including publicly calling for death to “Russians, Communists and Jews”. But in the past week the dirty little secret has somehow poked its head out from behind the curtain a bit. Lire la suite »

Mohsen Abdelmoumen : en tant que géopolitologue, pourriez-vous nous donner des éléments de compréhension des enjeux concernant ce qu’il se passe actuellement en Ukraine ?

Nicolas Bárdos-Féltoronyi Miklós : Ce conflit peut être appréhendé en faisant la distinction entre la facette intérieure et la facette extérieure. La facette intérieure concerne ce qui s’y est passé, car la majorité des gens ont été informés plus ou moins bien et n’ont eu à leur disposition que des images des manifestations qui se sont déroulées. Mais il faut quand même analyser plus profondément pour bien comprendre ces phénomènes. Lire la suite »
