How can a #democracy be successful if the military-industrial complex is the most powerful group in the state?

#Journalism is one of the devices whereby industrial autocracy keeps its control over political democracy; it is the day-by-day, between-elections propaganda, whereby the minds of the people are kept in a state of acquiescence, so that when the crisis of an election comes, they go to the polls and cast their ballots for either one of the two candidates of their exploiters.

Is #Germany a vassal state of the U.S.?

The indications:

* West German Chancellors had to sign a secret order that the USA would have the supreme command in the event of a crisis -> http://www.zeit.de/2009/21/D-Souveraenitaet

* They do nothing against Rammstein and the illegal drone war.

This woman was injured at a press freedom #demonstration in #Istanbul on 5 March 2016. Hundreds of people gathered in front of the headquarters of the government-critical #newspaper #Zaman, after it was placed under state administration and security forces stormed the building. The police dismantled the demonstrators with water cannons and rubber bullets.

Across Europe, social democratic parties are in crisis and on Sunday, the German SPD could slide to its worst result since World War II. What has happened to the once-glorious center-left parties on the Continent? And how can they recover? By SPIEGEL Staff

Unlike #Trump, she has no malicious intent. She did not set out to destroy the agreements she helped to create. But the #Earth’s systems do not respond to mission statements or speeches or targets.

Since 2005, little #girls can decide: Do I become a #hairdresser — or #chancellor?
This Sunday, the sole ruler of Germany (Merkel) is confirmed in a so called democratic #election so that she can continue to govern.

Goodbye to all that democracy

https://mmsylvia.wordpress.com/2017/09/09/goodbye-to-all-that-democracy/

“We can either have #democracy in this country or we can have great #wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can’t have both.” — Louis D. Brandeis, US Supreme Court justice (1856–1941)

Let's talk about it, because in this beautiful country everyone is terribly tolerant, at least in #theory.

Don’t #Whitewash the #Hiroshima #Bombing

source: http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/dont-whitewash-the-hiroshima-bombing/
#America’s deliberate targeting of #civilians, and its post-facto justifications, are clearly not unique, either in World War II, or in the wars before or since. Other nations, including #Japan itself, added their own #horror to the books, mostly without remorse. But #history’s only use of #nuclear #weapons holds a significant place in infamy, especially on this August 6. America’s lack of introspection over one of the single most destructive days in the history of human #warfare continues, with 21st-century #consequences.

Elections in the #Netherlands

#Today in #Holland both parties that made up the government (VVD "liberals" and PVDA "social-democrats") lost massively, -10 and -29 seats. In this very nice representative democracy this means the VVD won the elections nevertheless, so f^#@$ng Mark Rutte can continue to ruin the country for another 4 years.

There is no democracy in the United States. Nor does the United States bring democracy to other countries. In fact, the United States does not even really want democracy in other countries. The only ideology supported by the ruling elites in the US is the ideology of monopoly capitalism. One can call it the free market or one can call it neoliberalism; one can call it the American Way. What it is is this: a brutal, bloody, destructive and immoral attempt to rule the planet, no matter what the cost in lives and environmental destruction. The marriage to the amoral system of profiteering known as capitalism has created an immensely immoral number of men and women willing to carry out the brutality and bloodshed necessary to reap that profit. - #democracy is #gone in the #usa
