This article by Nicolas Bonnal is currently top of Pravda‘s most-popular list. It’s WELL WORTH A READ. Check it out!

via Vladimir Putin against the new Carthaginian civilization – English pravda.ru.

Whilst I do not endorse the article’s argument nor the conclusions, I agree that the article picks up on a number of important threads in Western society. From the vantage of the Pravda article, society in the US, the UK and France has reached a new low. I accept that the current political leaders in power in the US, UK and France are probably among the worst for a generation or more.

It is interesting that the writer  Nicolas Bonnal is described as French, born in Tunisia and makes an important play on Putin and the North African Carthaginian civilization. I am inclined to question the bias of the author.

Let me turn this to an open question:

Do you believe that oligarchs and their cronies control Western society and democracy is a spent force?

Any views?

  1. Dr Alf asks if democracy is a “spent force” and whether oligarchs and their cronies control Western Society as PRAVDA.RU asserts.

    Whilst democracy is not a completely spent force, it is true that the rich and powerful decide whether we are at peace or war, the state of the economy, the uneven distribution of wealth which gets worse by the month and access to justice (they have a lot of access and the little person is priced out of the equation).

    Bilderbergers, meeting in secret once a year, decide who we will vote for and who will lead each opposition party and in what role.

    Thus David Cameron, Ed Miliband, Ed Balls, Nick Clegg, Paddy Ashdown, George Osborne, Gordon Brown, Tony Blair and Simon Hughes are all Bilderbergers.

    Prince Philip often attends, as he is one as well, and in other Groupings such as the Club of Rome, the Club of Budapest, Bohemian Grove in California, the Committee of 300, the Committee of 500, the Grand Druid Council, the Knights of Malta, the Sun Society, policies for the world are carefully shaped.

    The Club of Isles controls the supply of food, oil and raw materials and energy and out of 44 American Presidents all but 10 have been related to just 2 people,Alfred the Great and Charlemagne.

    What we have is the semblance of democracy but the reality is that what we have is an illusion.

    Occasionally people flex their muscles as is happening over UKIP and Europe but on the essential issues and matters like Gay marriage, hanging, the approach to militant Islam and green issues /Climate change the public are ignored, marginaliZed and where necessary rubbished.

    Russia is not a democracy either and Vladimir Putin is allegedly worth £32 billion gbp which suggests that in the oligarch stakes he is right up there along with the ones who have chosen to exile themselves and their wives, girlfriends and mistresses here in places like Totteridge and Hampsteaed
