Selective moral, humanitarian outrage for US strategic ends continues

International media coverage is often designed to manipulate, for the strategic gain of a particular country. Whenever our focus is directed, by another party, onto a very specific country's alleged human rights abuses, our suspicion is in order. It is especially in order if that other party is part of the mainstream US-based media. Presently, we see incitement against the regime in the case of Belarus, China, and Myanmar, and we know all attention used to be on Syria (that campaign of manipulation ended in failure). While there are genuine human rights abuses and movements to counter them around the world, many such movements are in the thrall of US strategy or would accept such a pathetic role in order to be funded. If someone is criticising a regime, it is most likely to be credible criticism if it is a US-backed regime neglected by media coverage. For that reason, the least misguided assessment of international affairs demands a clear picture of the geography of pro-Western subservience and US-led liberal hegemony. If a country targeted for whatever official "humanitarian" reasons is presently escaping the coercion of the hegemonic power, that may be the only true reason it is being targeted.

Our voices are to be suppressed online in favor of monotonous conformity

Efforts, both known and unknown, are underway at US tech companies to suffocate all political dissent online. The goal is to re-establish the same monotonous conformity to US-led liberal hegemony seen in the 1990s that ultimately enabled the aggression on Iraq in 2003. It has started out by targeting the bombastic political right, including the then US president, but is possibly spreading beyond such a narrow scope to suppress others. Given that those doing this aren't in fact driven by justice but by cold war domination, we should suspect a broader attack on every source of information that doesn't conform to the views of the US establishment and NATO. Those of us who criticise any policy of Biden or the transatlantic policy elites should expect diminished web traffic as a result of shadow banning. Of particular interest is the possibility of Google suppressing your blog or website in search results. Stats should be monitored carefully and any suspicious decrease of traffic or engagement should be discussed with others. At the same time, some may consider putting aside ideological differences with other dissidents and attempting to share readers by being a lot more tolerant of such differences. Consider that social attitudes differ a lot across the globe, yet many people who have conservative views on domestic politics and society are anti-war and are against the far greater humanitarian ills of US imperialism, sanctions, and violence promotion. Such opposition to hegemony has long united people across borders and overridden cultural and political differences. There is no reason to give priority to feuding over minor, distracting differences in political or social views under such circumstances.
