Self-Proclaimed Moral Superiority of the Indispensable State Unmasked

by Stephen Lendman

No nation in world history harmed more people over a longer duration than hegemon USA from inception since the 18th century.

The US Constitution was the product of duplicitous politicians and complicit allies to cut the best deals for themselves at the expense of ordinary Americans to be exploited, not served.

The Constitution's Bill of Rights — its first 10 Amendments — was agreed on to serve the nation's privileged few exclusively.

The so-called "supreme law of the land" deters no US regime, complicit Congress and go-along courts from doing whatever they please to advance the nation's imperium and their own self-interest.

The US has always been ruled exclusively by rich and well-born men until well into the 20th century when women got involved.

They collectively lie, connive, misinterpret and pretty much operate ad libitum in discharging their duties as they see fit for their own self-interest — while pretending otherwise.

From inception, the US ruling class considered democracy an anathema notion.

It's tolerated nowhere, especially not domestically and throughout the West.

Nations where it exists abroad are targeted for regime change, the Russian Federation most of all today.

The 18th century American revolution continued dirty business as usual under new management.

Expanding the nation from sea to shining sea came at the expense of almost entirely exterminating Native Americans to advance white supremacist rule.

Until after the mid-19th century, African Americans were considered property, not people.

The so-called father of the country, George Washington, was a Native American hating slave owner.

Comprised of duplicitous, self-serving rich white men, today we'd called the nation's founders a Wall Street crowd.

Comprised of politicians, lawyers, bankers, merchants, and slave owners, they established what served their interests exclusively.

Until the 20th century, women were considered homemakers, child bearers and rearers alone.

Lincoln extrajudicially began war between the states for political and economic reasons.

His so-called Emancipation Proclamation freed no one.

The great emancipator was hardcore racist.

He wanted Blacks deported at war's end to maintain America as a white supremacist society.

Usurping dictatorial powers, he  suspended the Constitution and habeas rights, closed courts, arbitrarily ordered arrests, conscripted US citizens without congressional consent, and shut down newspapers opposing his policies to suppress hard truths.

Reality about the US from inception isn't pretty, far from it.

The nation's ruling class is selected, not elected.

The vast majority of Americans have no say over how they're governed.

Elections when held at the federal, state and local levels are farcical.

What little remains of greatly eroded freedoms is on the chopping block for elimination entirely.

Public education I got growing up long ago no longer exists in its earlier form.

Commenting on America's deplorable state, Ghana national Femi Akomolafe stressed the following:

"Russian officials always come across as well-educated, well-informed, well-mannered, sophisticated, cultured, and respectful." 

In stark contrast, US/Western officials "attack the world as haughty, naughty, ill-mannered, ill-educated, uncultured, provincial, and narcissistic imbeciles." 

"They lack the elementary decorum necessary to engage peers in respectful manners." 

"(S)uperciliousness, fueled by racist arrogance, might partly explain why they behave so, but we cannot discount the possibilities that they simply lack the education, the culture, and the home training required for civilized behavior, especially in encounters with other cultures."

"The question needs to be asked how the Collective West ended up with the current gaggle of clowns holding positions of responsibility?

And this observation by Akomolafe:

"Watching the performances of Russians and Western officials, one immediately notices that the much-touted and ultra-expensive 'education' in the West today is" dismal. 

"Russian actions in Ukraine revealed a West where leaders remain emotional juveniles who continue to REACT jerkily to Russia's deft moves." 

"That's when they are not busy projecting their own values and behavior onto the Russians." 

"Not only have the Russians vastly outplayed the West militarily, economically, and geopolitically, the actions/reactions of the West have boomeranged mightily to Russia's advantage." 

"(H)yperinflation ravaging the West is just one example."

Politically, economically and militarily, Russia is outwitting and outmaneuvering the US-dominated West in Ukraine and on the world stage overall.

The same goes for China.

United, they're unrivaled on the world stage.

Their way is polar opposite how the empire of lies and complicit Western vassals operate.

The US self-styled indispensable state is more hypocrisy, autocracy and plutocracy than democracy — a notion its ruling class wants eliminated everywhere.

Russians have the real thing — in stark contrast to a selected, unelected White House imposter and key congressional policymakers.

In less than a year-and-a-half in office, the fake Biden and undemocratic Dem-run Congress risks setting the world ablaze over its sanctions and proxy hot war on Russia.

They wrecked the US economy more than already — along with willfully and maliciousiously plotting mass extermination of millions and billions of unwanted people.

They sent US inflation soaring to its highest level in the past 75 years.

They disrupted supply chains — and likely incinerated numerous US food plants — to cause shortages, along with greater food insecurity and hunger.

Their unparalleled sanctions war on Russia caused a global energy crisis, what's likely to more greatly worsen ahead — causing enormous harm throughout the West and elsewhere.

Shortages of essential goods are worsening.

US/Western economies are heading toward what may be severe, protracted Depression for the vast majority of their people — because of reckless policymaking.

The average price of gasoline and diesel fuel in the West keeps rising to new record highs.

The same goes for the cost of electricity to heat and air condition homes.

And for food essential to sustain life and well-being.

What's going on and worsening is a made-in-the-USA perfect storm of misery and growing deprivation for most people throughout the West and elsewhere.

The cost of food and energy alone is increasingly becoming unaffordable for growing millions.

What's going on didn't happen accidentally.

It was well-planned by US and complicit Western dark forces.

Food production and availability are shrinking.

The latest University of Michigan's Consumer Sentiment Index is at an 11-year low and likely heading lower.

Nearly one-fourth of working-age Americans are jobless.

The officially reported unemployment figure is fake news.

Producer prices rose to a 47-year high of 15.7% year-over-year.

What's going on and worsening has nothing to do with Russia, everything to do with US/Western wrecking ball policymaking.

The fake Biden is largely detached from reality, aware of little more than what's scripted for him to recite or paraphrase.

While inflation, food insecurity and overall deprivation keep rising, the regime he nominally heads keeps making a bad situation worse for the vast majority of Americans their dark forces don't give a hoot about.

At the same time, they risk direct confrontation with Russia, a nation with super-weapons exceeding the best in the decadent, depraved West.

Today's dismal state of things is likely to get much worse ahead economically, financially and perhaps militarily as well.

A Final Comment

Along with all of the above, hegemon USA operates the world's largest gulag prison system.

With thousands behind bars for political reasons or offenses too minor to matter, around two million are imprisoned in the US — along with many others abroad.

In the US, they're in 1,566 state prisons, 102 federal ones, 2,850 local jails, 1,510 juvenile correctional facilities, 186 immigration detention facilities, and 82 Indian country jails, as well as in military prisons, civil commitment centers, state psychiatric hospitals, and prisons in US territories — according to the Prison Policy Initiative (PPI) think tank.

Societies are best judged by how they treat children, the elderly, the infirm, their most disadvantaged and prisoners. 

Hegemon USA fails on all counts under under both wings of its war party.
