The Thirty Tyrants

Dana Mathewson


Those who have studied the history of Ancient Greece will understand the title of this post.

This is a long article, but well worth the read. It explains what's going on here and why (and how we're basically doomed).

Rather than excerpt it, I'll just give you the link. Here: https://www.tabletmag.com/sections/news/articles/the-thirty-tyrants and please take the time to read it!

1 It's good but I think the author misses the boat on some issues.

He seems to believe the rise of the Ruling Class is a relatively new phenomonon, and ties in with the rise of Trump. He's profoundly wrong.

Remember when Madeleine Albright said the United States needed to be counterbalanced? The Elites then were promoting the idea of China as a counterweight to American hegemony because they did not trust their own country.

That was during the Clinton era. And a bunch of people - including Newt Gingrich - jumped on board the China train.

Shoot, the John Birch Society has been promoting the idea of an international conspiracy of banking interests for over fifty years.

This was not a new thing and was not discovered as a result of Trump.

I would also add he points at Kissinger and the opening of China under Nixon, but why was Kissinger there in the first place? This goes back, to Roosevelt, and in fact to Woodrow Wilson. The Ruling Class in America has been working towards this current state of affairs for a long time. They always disdained America as crass and rude and uncultured, preferring a European socialist model. They had to keep quiet about their views though, because the average American wouldn't agree and their views still mattered. But now they believe they have won to the point where they no longer have to hide.

AND economic dependence was and is a goal of the internationalists. It's how the E.U. came into existence, and they wanted to make Americna and China co-dependent as the nucleus of a new world order, a world government with a socialist world economy. This is an old project.

That said I agree with much of this article. Certainly their characterization of the U.S. endless war program as providing security to China's Belt and Road Initiative is right on the money.

So too is the discussion about protests in Wuhan before the Covid plague - and how convenient that plague was for the Chicoms. I  hadn't heard anything about that.

Anyway, it was an excellent article (even if a bit dated as it goes back to the early days of Biden's Junta.)

2 Yes, you're right that he could have backed up a bit. But he would have had to make it a book to cover everything. On the whole, I think he got it right.

3 I think he did too Dana. It was a great job.
