I interrupt a terribly exhausting writing exercise to share a valuable lesson in how media serves capital.

A lesson in #Spectacle

Feb 21, 2019: 'Kicking Ass for Her Generation': Applause for 16-Year-Old Greta Thunberg as EU Chief Pledges Billions to Curb Climate Threat"...
"...—after weeks of climate strikes around the world inspired by the Swedish teenager—that the European Union has heard the demands of young people..."


btw - here is the link:
"In the financial period beginning in 2021, Juncker said, the EU will devote a quarter of its budget to solving the crisis."

Win! Victory! "Greta Thunberg, literally changing the world"
Not so fast.

Sept 26, 2018:

"The European Commission proposed to dedicate 25% of the next European Union budget (2021-2027),..."
The only victory here - was for the ruling class.

They give what THEY want - what serves THEIR collective interests. And by utilizing spectacle - they make us believe that we are in the drivers seat - that we are winning. We're not.

This is a charade. #WakeUp
(English overdub) The Society of the #Spectacle (Final sound edit)

Before I get back to writing this morning, I want to expand on this important thread started last night. I want to try to articulate it a little better ... a little more.
The financing that the European Commission committed was not a concession – in response to Greta Thunberg's speech given that day, nor a response to the climate strikes orchestrated with GCCA/TckTckTck at the helm.
Here we see how reality can be made to turn on its head. Waving the magic wand of spectacle, a decision announced/finalized on September 26, 2018 w/ the World Bank et al – is turned into a victorious changing of tide for the populace.
This is not only spectacle, this social engineering coupled with behavioural economics (of fear).
Further, the "gift" announced by the president of the European Commission (before or after kissing the hand of our young Thunberg I do not know) is not a gift at all, but money fleeced from the citizens – largely from the working class.
And where – and on what will this money for "climate infrastructure" actually be spent? False solutions (CCS) & environmental nightmares (#BECCS)?


Or, seeing the European Commission, the architect of the Climate Finance Partnership – aligned with the Blended Finance Taskforce – with an imperative to build "climate infrastructure" in the Global South ...
– will this money go to toward this rebooted #colonization effort under the guise of green. Wiping out whole cultures & replacing them with new markets. Creating societies with a new & deliberate dependence on unsustainable systems, all on the foundation of a new debt economy.
The American dream in an even uglier form goes South. "Pay as you" go everything as you simply can't trust "the savages". In any case, it will be used as the leverage for high risk investments – in which the means of production will be owned by the ruling class.

Co-operatives are used as talking points, a lure to global green new deals when the reality is a bigger cake for the world's most powerful corporations: ... if we could finance their activities, we will create new areas of demand and just a bigger global cake."
