The world is surrounded by election frenzy. While the CDU, SPD and Greens lost votes in the Berlin state elections, Germany's most fascist and racist party, the AfP reached 14.2 percent from zero. In Russia, the United Russia party supported by Russian President Vladimir Putin came first in the ballot box in the country's parliament elections.
And in the U.S., which is talking through its hat and showing off not only in the region we live but also in the about 120 countries (actual number unknown) worldwide where it has actual military presence, the system is being prepared for a new leader. Unlike Europe, in this country, the relationship between the system and the leader is quite different.
The United Companies of America (UCA) provides the necessary calibration to all its leaders from past to present. It draws the boundaries of what needs to be done in a quite proper way.
It also introduces to the world public with extraordinary success each one of its leaders based on their own individuality through the public diplomacy channel.
To understand the U.S.'s position in the world and to have an idea of its strategies, one would need to read its presidents' position, yet it shouldn't be over exaggerated. There is benefit in “looking” at certain clues to be able to “read” the U.S. elections that seem very simple, but have a quite sophisticated structure.
One of the most effective among these clues is on the agenda once more with an interview given to the German Frankfurter Algemeine Zeitung by 87-year-old U.S. intellectual Noam Chomsky, who is known for his harsh criticisms of U.S. policies, whose ideological approach and particularly views on Turkey which we cannot say we entirely agree with.
Besides his harsh intellectual assumptions, Chomsky's following statements have also gone down in history:
“Europe is too racist. They don't want Turks walking around in their streets.”
“America's loyal subsidiary in the project of keeping the hungry nations under control is less encumbered by the need for prettifying the message than Washington and its domestic chorus. Britain can appeal to an imperial tradition of refreshing candor, unlike the United States, which has preferred to don the garb of saintliness as it proceeds to crush anyone in its path.”
“The era opened almost 10,000 years ago in the Fertile Crescent. As we approached the current times, these lands saw terror beyond measure. The attack by George W. Bush and Tony Blair in 2003 is compared by many Iraqis to the Mongol invasion in the 13th century. The United Nations sanctions started by Bill Clinton came right before this fatal blow. The two diplomats who applied the sanctions [Halliday and von Sponeck] described these as “genocidal” and both resigned in protest for that reason. The majority of what was left behind from this destruction were destroyed by the Bush-Blair attack. Baghdad, where different identities were living in mixed neighborhoods in 2003, is today a vortex of unlimited hatred – sects have taken refuge in separate, besieged regions. The conflict triggered by the U.S.-Britain invasion is dividing the entire region.”
“Turkey has a resistance culture you can never see in the West.”
“The U.S. itself has become a terrorist country.”
In this FAZ interview, Chomsky “touched” on the U.S. elections. Here is an excerpt from this interview:
“In the past, the Republicans eliminated the extreme ends of the political spectrum in the preliminaries. However, this time they failed. Trump is exclusive. Never before has the Western industry communities seen anything like him.”
“The U.S. has fundamental problems: 'Inequality, racism, social divisions, identity problems…
Who supports Trump? Not the poor… They consist mostly of the white working class. Starting from the Reagan era, they were always neglected.
As for the Democrats, even though they claim the opposite, they abandoned this group in the 1970s. When they say 'working class' they are actually referring to the 'middle class.' A large section of the society was abandoned.
You would know well from Europe the second element of the Trump incident: The development of populism and extreme nationalism.
There has been a deep change in the U.S.'s political system. It is now 'a state controlled by a single party' in which there are two groups… Actually, the name of that single party is the 'Business Party…'
(In my column published in the Akşam daily on Jan. 21, 2009, I had criticized the media of developing countries that celebrated U.S. President Barack Obama's election by banging pots and pans, and said that Obama is not a black Muslim but an American and that it should write the United Companies of America (UCA) beside the U.S.'s name, there were some who smirked at me. I hope your ears are ringing now.)
“Both parties have now shifted far right. Hillary Clinton could have easily been shown as a Republican candidate about 20 years ago.
“The non-existence of a third party in the U.S. is a legacy to us from Britain. The election system is based not on proportional representation, but on one which the majority determines the result.
“The situation in Europe is even more critical. The entire control over the decision has been left to the bureaucracy in Brussels…
“The last chance for the U.S. is for the number of those like Bernie Sanders, who has managed to convince a serious mass without any support from capital circles, to increase. It is difficult, but possible…”
What is Chomsky, who once said “the U.S. has lost its spirituality,” saying in brief? We think he is saying: The U.S. is run by companies and the EU by bureaucrats. The political system has collapsed on both sides. There is no trace of high values, world politics is trying to be run in accordance with economic interests.
We are not the ones saying it, MIT professor and department head, American Noam Chomsky is.
