The hegemony of the US is sustained through military power and economic coercion, but this requires the continued subservience of the media and the consent of the majority of citizens across the west. MarkGB explains why we need to pay attention to what is being said.
Now Julian Assange has been arrested, what will follow, from politicians, commentators and media figures on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean…is a concerted effort to focus on the ‘guilt’ of Julian Assange; to ignore the truth of what he has revealed. Mark GB shares why…
The French Revolution didn’t ‘start’ in 1789; WW2 didn’t ‘begin’ in 1939; an avalanche doesn’t ‘commence’ when the surface snow begins to slide. By the time human beings recognise that a massive shift is taking place, it’s been underway for a while, sometimes a long while. The majority become aware during the quickening stage of the phenomena. We’re in one now.
Anyone who believes that their ‘identity’ provides immunisation against criticism, is either a dangerous fool or a deliberate manipulator. Mark GB explains why this form of ‘emotional blackmail’ should always be questioned.
We ‘ordinary’ human beings need to improve our ability to discern the intent behind the narrative we are being sold. This is entirely achievable for an individual. To persuade a critical mass of people to ‘wake up’ is an entirely different challenge. Mark GB shares his insights of the people we need to start listening to in 2019.
Washington in general, and the CIA in particular, are going after Julian Assange for one reason: Because he reveals the truth about the crimes they commit. The rest of it is bullshit.
Forty years ago, Mark GB penned a song ‘Wheels’. It had an outing at a time in history which doesn’t seem out of place in a news piece today. What the song was about – the corrupt system of bankers, arms-dealers, corporations, ‘old money’ & bent politicians – is the same now as it was then.
‘Government’ in the UK…and elsewhere…is a function of a corrupt relationship between politicians and vested interests from the corporate sector and foreign lobbyists. Mark GB highlights the depths of the systemic problem.
The propagandist seeks to bend the ‘group mind’. And we are seeing it being cemented in the UK right now…the idea that criticism of Israel’s persecution of Palestinians is an act of anti-Semitism. MarkGB takes a closer look into the current sharpest manifestation – the smear campaign against Jeremy Corbyn.
An old friend of mine sent me a message a few days ago after reading ‘The Insidious Nature of Power‘, a piece I wrote for Renegade Inc. in September 2017 here. “I would love it if you did some analysis from a UK standpoint. What do you think of where we are on Brexit? Do you think the […]
Trump’s latest appointment to National Security Advisor is the uber war hawk John Bolton. Don’t be fooled – we are being taken to a war in Iran by sociopaths, and the mainstream media are their collaborators.
To my fellow citizens I say this: Make up your own mind – don’t blindly believe me or anyone else; and for God’s sake don’t let the government and the media make up your mind for you. So, if you have any doubt about the power and persistence of the current mass delusion against Russia then Mark GB provides some clarity.
Over the past week, the Guardian has engaged in a variety of personal attacks on a number of independent journalists and academics – those who criticise the paper’s support for the ‘White Helmets’; a so-called ‘humanitarian’ organisation that operates in ‘rebel-held’ areas of Syria. There are two versions of this story, but the media only wants you to hear one of them…
Equally parasitic as the medieval Black Death, the pandemic we face in the 21st Century is a psychological phenomenon rather than a biological one. Its name is ‘deceit’, and our political & economic institutions are riddled with it. Mark GB calls out the manifestations of the 21st-century plague – and it might just provide the antidote you need to survive it.
Washington has turned into the thing that it freed itself from 241 years ago – a bloated and corrupt imperial power, desperate for taxes, constantly hunting down resources overseas…sustained by military might and control of the global monetary system. Arrogant beyond belief, oblivious to its own hypocrisy, and dismissive of the need to maintain the respect of other nations – the US government is a reflection of everything it was created to overthrow.
On 16th October the world received a clear signal of what is valued by the ruling elites of the United States – John McCain was awarded the 2017 Liberty Medal at the National Constitution Centre. Whatever John McCain received that medal for – it was not ‘liberty’. History doesn’t actually ring a bell, but it does provide signals of what is to come. John McCain’s medal represents the hijacking of liberty to justify tyranny.
Dear Catalans, You are not allowed to secede from Spain. The EU ‘owns’ Spain, and Spain ‘owns’ you. Catalonia is a wholly owned subsidiary of Spain. Spain is a subsidiary of the EU. And the EU is non-negotiable. Vast amounts of capital went into this project; if it fails it will bring down the global banking system.
In the coming months we can expect to witness an increasing number of speeches and articles demonising Iran, along with a growing number of ‘serious incidents’, that will be used to justify reneging on the nuclear deal. The phoney war on Iran has entered a new phase. The Likud party led by Netanyahu, the Trump administration, supported by the Wahhabi backed princeling in Riyadh…have absolutely no interest in collaborative solutions in the Middle East. Their goal is regime change.
Our problems will not be solved by the victory of one party over another, or of one ‘ism’ over another. Changing lawmakers from ‘conservatives’ to ‘liberals’ or ‘liberals’ to ‘socialists’, without reforming how the laws are made is like asking the orchestra to play a happy tune whilst the ship goes down, writes Mark GB. Our problems arise from the centralisation of power and money in the hands of unaccountable vested interests. We need fundamental reform of the political and monetary system itself.
Throw a dart at the map of the world and chances are it will land in or near a territory in which the US and its allies have ‘promoted democracy’, made a ‘humanitarian intervention’, and/or ‘defended western values’, leaving behind the stench of JP Morgan, Standard Oil, Halliburton, and the Cheney and Clinton dynasties. The concept of ‘left and right’ is a sideshow for the plebs – MarkGB examines how war has become a reliable profit centre for government cronies.
