American Capitalism Gone With A Whimper

The irony of this article appearing in the English edition of Pravda

(Russian newspaper) defies description. Why can a Russian newspaper print the following yet the American media can't/won’t see it?
It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American
descent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against
the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me, I meant people.

True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past
century, especially the past twenty years... The initial testing
grounds was our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was.

But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms
and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured to the
fists of the Marxists. Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and
substandard education system based on pop culture, rather than the
classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas than
the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more
for their "right" to choke down a McDonald’s or Burger King burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our "democracy".  Pride blinds the foolish.

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all
tens of thousands of different "branches and denominations" were for the most part little more than Sunday circuses and their
televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more than
happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the "winning" side
of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may
complain, but when explained that they would be on the "winning"
side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for
earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously
liberalized in America.
The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His
speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His
spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in
America’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for
more than another year, and there is no sign that it will not,
America at best will resemble the Weimar Republic and at worst
Zimbabwe .

These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First
came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American
Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll
their thefts, losses, and swindles of hundreds of billions of
dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more than
ordinary street thugs, in comparison.  Yes, the Americans have beaten our own thieves in their sheer numbers.  Should we congratulate them?

These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of
appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their
henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American
dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the
rights, duties, and powers of the American congress (parliament).
Again, congress has put up little more than a whimper to their

Then came Barack Obama's command that GM's (General Motors)
president step down from leadership of his company. That is
correct in the land of "pure" free markets, the American president now has the power, the self-given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions.  So it should be no surprise, that the American president has followed this up with a "bold" move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies. I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too.  Prime Minister Putin, less than two months ago, warned Obama and UK 's Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism; it only leads to disaster. Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, so let our "wise" Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride.  Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper...but a "free man" whimper.

So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democrat-controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set "fair" maximum salaries, evaluate performance, and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses.

Representative Barney Frank, a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort.. He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive.

The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red as fast as possible.. In other words, divest while there is still value left.

The proud American will go down into his slavery without a fight, beating his chest, and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.

Apparently written by a Russian who can say "been there, done that!"
