In recent years, a stereotype has emerged that the only possible point of view in the world on any serious issue that arises is that of the White House, the State Department and the financial forces behind these organizations. By upholding this point of view, the UN meeting, international economic forums and other international platforms are sharpened, which by their intended purpose should lead to finding a consensus based on multiple points of view.
This is a new form of world democracy, when in fact the financial and military lobby of one state follows the path of total subordination of other states to get a profitable space in which to make money. But is this democratic game only manifested by certain forces in the United States in foreign policy? ..
In fact, democracy does not smell in the United States of America itself. The fact is that with the help of certain resources, this state learned long ago to manipulate public opinion with the sole purpose of creating a great illusion of democracy and forcing the American people themselves to believe that they are really deciding economically and politically. The vast majority of American citizens do not yet realize that the era of virginal democracy, which was born in the United States when leaving the colonization of the British crown, is becoming a thing of the past. Democratic values are only an ephemeral tool that allows you to keep the public on a short leash and at the right time to use this public for its intended purpose.
Yesterday, the public in the United States was the tenth one for the authorities: it was dispersed with tear gas and batons from Wall Street and demolished the houses of representatives of this very public for insolvency on loans. Today, the public and the authorities and their opponents needed. They say that there is our sacred democratic force, which makes a creature out of the ordinary American, which literally at the level of hypnosis is involved in a pre-election densely brewing porridge.
One of the indicative elements of the fact that the American democracy machine is working on a very dubious program, the following information can happen. Not so long ago, the US sociological services presented on a general overview survey data converted into political ratings of candidates that are not in tune with what is available now. According to these reports, the picture was such that Obama calmly recruited his 54% and the candidate Romney was content with the remaining 46%. As they say, everything is extremely clear and fully reflected the alignment of political forces, behind which there are much more influential forces - financial. But it seemed to these financial forces that the obviousness of the result obviously would not allow the US President to make a lot of money (on advertising alone during the debates, companies receive tens of millions of dollars), would not allow the whole "democratic" process to be shown to the world, and therefore to a certain extent, to undermine the very idea of a financially thought out shift in the White House host.
In this regard, we decided to go the wrong way: sociologists added to the Republican candidate Romney a couple of percent, which they simultaneously took from Barack Obama. Based on this, it suddenly turned out that the candidate, who is also the incumbent president, is acting as a catch-up. Seeing this, the current owner of the easy chair in the Oval Office of the White House, also decided to go on the offensive, relying on all the same financial circles (by the way, even in the United States themselves there is an opinion that the financial circles that support different candidates are the same ).
In this case, American democracy has slipped to the level of cockroach races, when several interested parties organize insect contests in order to get a decent jackpot. If suddenly one “mustached horse” is considered to be an obvious favorite of the race, then he is immediately sculpted on his back with a piece of clay so that he does not run so fast towards the finish line. So the odds equalize ...
In the case of the American presidential election, a piece of clay, of course, is not visually visible, but here the completely unexpected jumps in the candidate rating exclusively around the 50% value suggest some reflections on the directional work of overseas sociologists. And in fact, well, what would this be for democratic elections, if the Americans were announced in advance that the rating of one of the candidates for 10-15% is higher than the rating of the candidate of the other. Well, no, ”say those people who are responsible for giving the political life of the United States a kind of democratic process,“ we will quickly adjust the ratings to the values that give the election intrigue, and the rusty mechanism of democracy at least outwardly will look properly working.
At the same time, no one can explain why this same Obama suddenly began to lose rating points only a month and a half before the elections ... Ordinary Americans without reports Mitt Romney didn’t guess that the current American administration didn’t make any economic breakthroughs, but and go: in Central Asia, in the Middle East. Does the average member of the American electoral field really need a person who will tell about this as a new candidate? But how then to be with the most democratic media in the world (this, of course, about the American ones). It turns out that all these media 4 of the year were silent about the economic and geopolitical problems of the current president, and now Romney appeared and everyone, you know, brought to clean water ... But this does not happen. And if it does not happen, then it means that there are forces in the USA that direct public opinion in the right direction: the channel of warming up the political life of the country, the channel of extracting profits from the election show. But otherwise, as a show, you can’t call this collision the foreheads of two people who, without sponsorship, are clearly not capable of taking steps forward.
Well, well ... In this case, one thing can be stated: why would these “cockroach races” in the US presidential elections not end, the show organizer would still be pleased, because then you and the bread, then you and the spectacle ...
