MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

The world is in flux. Standards long held eroded, principles amended & international law flouted. Moral & ethical codes are being suspended to benefit western elites.

The rights of individuals are being superseded to empower the western establishment.
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

Western elites are no longer abiding by moral or ethical codes that previously were held to be sacrosanct.

Since 9/11 they consider these to be too restrictive in the face of the existential threat to their ability to wield power over others.
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

In reality the concepts of democracy, freedom of speech & the right to process were always limited concepts reserved for peacetime & were always suspended to the degree deemed necessary in times of war.

Western elites are at war.
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

To western elites their ability to guide, manipulate, control & discipline the rest of the world is vital. They do this in their interests, though many have convinced themselves this is not the case or simply a by-product of benevolent liberal oversight.
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

The West’s elite consider themselves to be the world’s caretakers, always watching from above in case the barbarous hordes of suspect foreigners do something nasty needing punishment, either requiring threat, sanctions or attack.
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

Since 9/11. Since the rise of China. Since Russia proclaimed a continuing independence from the West. Since the move from the dollar as the world reserve currency.

Since their paranoia over dwindling oil supplies... western elites have become predatory.
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

All the traditional values of western liberal democracy are now subject to alteration & elimination at very short notice.

This was seen over the plans to attack & invade Iraq.

The people demonstrated their disapproval & were totally ignored.
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

Torture had been used in the West in extreme conditions previously.

In Northern Ireland so-called ‘stress positions’ had become the norm in dealing with the prisoners of the British Army.

Now the US would take degrading treatment to a whole new level.
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

The scandal at Abu Ghraib was put down to a few bad apples. No emphasis was thought necessary on the milieu of consent for degrading treatment seen there.

Rumsfeld & others couldn’t justify the images seen.

But they could deflect the guilt onto others.
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

UK & US soldiers committed crimes against humanity in Iraq.

Iraqis were subjected to abuse, their homes raided w/ impunity & their norms of behavior ignored & flouted.

Iraqis (called ‘Ragheads by US troops) were at times subject to summary execution.
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

A new level of racism, already rife in western police & military services reached a new peak in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya & Syria.

The rights of brown-skinned people simply didn’t compare with those of their white-skinned occupiers.
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

Back home in the USA the police became increasingly militarized.

They were supplied with US army equipment & weaponry.

Pepper spray & electric shock devices emerged as tools with which to control & punish those deemed unruly or obstructive.
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

The moral & ethical values of the West are in flux & increasingly questioned.

The idea of a tactical nuclear strike as a preemptive option is now no longer taboo.

The mass surveillance of western populations is now commonplace across the western world.
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

Those exercising the right of free speech or assembly in the West are increasingly seen as traitors.

Whistleblowers are jailed & excoriated for harming their countries when all they have done is report elite crimes against their own & other nations.
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

The West has become illiberal & draconian.

The establishment figures who consider it their work to dominate, punish & jail those who seek change at the top.

Climate change is ignored w/ a business as usual attitude. Protest is increasingly punishable
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

In response to western elite aggression & global vandalism seen during the attack on & invasion of Iraq using lies as justification Russia announced & reaffirmed the independence of her foreign policy.

Putin made himself absolutely clear to the West.
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

Russia became enemy number one of the western elites upon daring to state she would remain free of the decay in western moral & ethical values evidenced by the illegal war against Iraq & the lies used to attempt its justification.
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

The East is now the primary moral authority upholding the highest standards of ethical conduct.

It is the entity most determined to use diplomacy & respect for sovereignty as the cornerstones of a general foreign policy aimed at delivering peace.
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

The West has become a force for war.

Some Republicans & virtually all Democrats in the USA & many in all political parties in the UK have become ardent warmongers demanding “something must be done” every time they see their interests being threatened.
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

The elites of the West would claim the world is safe in the hands of what they boast are western liberal democracies.

But the reality is they are illiberal western fiefdoms of the rich & powerful in a post-9/11 world of irresponsible western aggression.
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

Thankfully all is not doom & gloom.

China w/ Russia continue to uphold the highest ethical & moral standards in their persistent determination to broker peace.

They stand consistently strong & determined against the moral & ethical decay of the West.
MAY THE FLUX BE WITH YOU

Take heart.

Although western elites have been doing their worst to weaken Russia, China & their allies in an attempt to strengthen their hand, those nations are standing strong.

Align with them for your future security and... may the flux be with you!
