Brexit: Anti-Neoliberal Rebellion

Politics / EU_Referendum Jun 26, 2016 - 02:53 PM GMT

By: Stephen_Lendman


Adam Smith said governments are “instituted for the defense of the rich against the poor.”

Predatory capitalism dominates most societies, wealth unequally distributed, privileged few benefitting at the expense of most others.

Powerful interests use money to make more of it at the expense of beneficial social change. Dominance preserves capital’s divine right. Governments and business partner against the general welfare.

Neoliberalism prioritizes dominance over democracy, profits over populism, and private interests over public ones - a zero-sum game benefitting monied interests over all others, societies made unfit to live in.

So-called free trade isn’t fair. It’s hugely destructive, overriding sovereign independence, fundamental freedoms, labor rights, environmental concerns and social justice.

It authorizes unrestrained plunder, exploitation, and pollution. Secretive Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) trade deals are their ultimate expression - assaulting personal freedoms, destroying them.

They’re anti-consumer, anti-public welfare, anti-ecosanity business sweetheart deals, giving corporate predators control over the lives of populations in all countries accepting their terms.

If enacted, they represent dominant corporate interests triumphing over public ones, empowering profit-making over human health and welfare.

America dominates NATO. Europe is a virtual US colony. Policies instituted aim for making the world made safe for corporate predators - color revolutions and wars of aggression used to achieve goals, fundamental freedoms and public welfare lost in the process, humanity’s survival up for grabs.

Today is the most perilous time in world history. Disturbing conditions should scare everyone. Michel Chossudovsky explains today’s world is “at a dangerous crossroads.”

“America’s hegemonic project” threatens everyone. Neoliberalism’s assault on personal freedoms “is an integral part of this foreign policy agenda.”

Dystopian harshness threatens free societies like never before. The worst of all possible worlds is unfolding in plain sight.

“State institutions collapse, schools and hospitals are closed down, the legal system disintegrates, borders are redefined, broad sectors of economic activity including agriculture and manufacturing are precipitated into bankruptcy, all of which ultimately leads to a process of social collapse, exclusion and destruction of human life including the outbreak of famines, (and) the displacement of entire populations (refugee crisis),” - a nightmarish scenario Chossudovsky explains.

Brexit is an expression of public discontent, short of boiling over in rage, the stuff revolutions are made of if things go this far.

US, UK and EU political leaders, along with monied interests, intend no-holds-barred efforts to keep a lid on things. They want union preserved, efforts to unravel it prevented, and business as usual continuing unobstructed.

Confronting them is economic recovery benefitting the privileged few at the expense of most others, hard times getting harder for growing millions, potential tinderbox conditions if not contained.

Brexit was a shot across the bow, a futile initiative unable to resolve inequities by itself. Voting doesn’t achieve responsible change. 

Grassroots commitment alone has promise if sustained. Today more than ever an uprising for justice is needed!
