    It is clear to me, they serve wealthy corporate interests (aka the Ruling Class). You?

    This column spells it out clearly. When will we wake up? Too many of us are “locked into the Matrix.”



    The Myth of Western Democracy

    Who do the Western governments serve? Washington serves Israel, the military/security complex, Wall Street, the big banks, and the fossil fuel corporations.

    The entirety of the rest of the West serves Washington.

    Nowhere in the West do the people count. The American working class, betrayed by the Democrats who sent their jobs to Asia, elected Donald Trump and the American people were promptly dismissed by the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton as “the Trump deplorables.”

    The Democrats, like the Republicans, serve power, not the people.

    In Europe we see the squashing of democracy everywhere.British prime minister May has turned Brexit into subservience to the EU. She has betrayed the British people and has not yet been hung off of a lamp post, which shows how acceptance the British people are of betrayal. The British people have learned that they do not count. They are as a nothing.

    The Greeks voted for a leftwing government that promised to protect them from the EU, IMF, and big banks, but promptly sold them out with austerity agreements that destroyed what remained of Greek sovereignty and Greek living standards. Today the EU has reduced Greece to a Third World country.

    The French have been in the streets in revolt for weeks against the French president who serves everyone except the French people.
