Rebel or Perish

A previous article discussed what perhaps is the most perilous time in world history. American-led Western societies are waging war on humanity.
Imperial war is a way of life. Social democracies are being eliminated. Freedom is on the chopping block to be crushed. Elections are meaningless and farcical.
America’s are the worst. They mock legitimacy. Money power controls them. It runs the country and most societies. People have no say. They’re ill-served and stomped on by governments in bed with corporatist rogues.
Media scoundrels serve wealth and power interests. Managed news misinformation is featured. Former Wall Street Journal writer Greg Jaffe now writes on military issues for the Washington Post.
His latest article calls the world “safer.” Measured by most relevant statistics, he says, America and the world “have never been safer.”
No legitimate journalist would claim it. No respectable editor would publish it.
At a time Western nations wage permanent war, crack down repressively against dissent, and inflict unprincipled hardships on people, Jaffe claims “global statistics point undeniably toward progress in achieving greater peace and stability.”
