THANK GOD to the #FOIAct , THIS, is finally out there. Seriously, I love #America as much as the next guy but the U.S. Govt. (both the liberal & conservative ones) has an utter #hypocrisy nobody else does. We cannot condone the killing of one person let alone a mass killing like this--for any reason! The irrational fear of #socialism & #communism has indeed pervaded too many U.S. foreign policy and military decisions. And the fact that THIS particular one happened under a #liberal democratic powers (it's the #Kissinger years, folks) is beyond disgusting.👎🗽 #Declassified#CIA#Operation#Indonesia#PKI#History
A #socialist in #Sweden says #democracy is being dismantled and warns that it could be on the slippery slope towards #technocracy or a #dictatorship . This politician gets it, but #Americans do not. I have warned for years that the clear and present danger to #America is Technocracy, and NOT socialism, #communism or #fascism .
Sweden’s new ambassador to Iceland has caused a stir, after warning that Sweden is “in the process of dismantling democracy” and could be on a slippery slope towards technocracy or a dictatorship.
Håkan Juholt, a former leader of the centre-left Social Democrat party and ambassador to Iceland since September, made the comments in an interview with the Svenska Dagbladet newspaper. “How old is your son? Four?” he asks the reporter. “When he is old he won’t be living in a democracy but in a technocracy, or a dictatorship. It’s sad as hell. I am sorry to say it, but I am 100 percent sure. We are in the process of dismantling democracy.” Later in the interview, he says: “I don’t think the threat is a dictatorship with tanks rolling on Sergel’s Square (a well-known square in central #Stockholm ), but an expert rule where we do not let the citizens’ values govern the country. Democracy is slipping through our fingers. Fewer people want to be elected, the parties are toning down their ideology. Sure, I see a risk that it may become a dictatorship in the long run.” Juholt did not elaborate on the comments, which have sparked criticism in Sweden. “It’s remarkable. It is the role of ambassadors, and the role of the government, to deliver an accurate image of our country and promote our country in the world,” Culture and Democracy Minister Alice Bah Kuhnke told the TT newswire, but said it was up to the Foreign Minister to comment further.
Margot Wallström responded she would not “argue with one of my ambassadors” in public. “He will probably have to explain his thoughts himself,” she said, speaking to TT at a meeting of EU foreign ministers in #Luxembourg . “He will probably also soon learn, I would think, what it means to be an ambassador.” #SocioEconomicReformation#ScientificDictatorship#NewWorldOrder
Goodbye, Lenin? Yes and no. This photo by @vladislavkarpyuk shows the massive Lenin monument in Saint Petersburg’s Moscow Square. For almost 70 years, until the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the city was called Leningrad in memory of the leader of the October Revolution and founder of the USSR. Today 100 years after the revolution, traces of his legacy are still visible in the city. But Lenin has also gone down in history for his violent persecution of political opponents, and the Russians' relationship with the former leader is ambivalent. Find out more in today’s story.
