Two days ago, Daily Pickings highlighted articles suggesting globalisation and "free trade" are class, rather than national, issues. Stateless power (in the form of the Structural Elite) is in control, not national governments and the levers of power (banking, intelligence, military, media and academia) are similarly controlled by the same forces. "Leaders" are "appointed" (irrespective of the pretence of democracy) according to their willingness to compromise their integrity and humanity in exchange for power, wealth, status and all the associated trappings.
The levers of power are orchestrated to deliver yet more power and wealth to the Structural Elite, using incentives and penalties to ensure the "elevated cattle" implement the agendas.
War takes many forms: military, psychological, social (induced mass migration for example) and economic - war is being waged on us all by the political economy and until we focus on the system, rather than pointing fingers at the elevated cattle, this course will not alter.
NATO member Turkey is now subject to economic warfare. Pye Ian suggests NATO is using the banking system to weaken Turkey but it is the banksters driving this war, like every other.
NATO’s Currency War against Turkey: Comparative Resistance & Solutions by Pye Ian
Turkey is being attacked by Anglo-American finance as punishment for Ankara’s perceived noncompliance with NATO’s geostrategic goals. Despite Turkey’s Justice and Development Party (AKP), under President and once Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, running a successfully growing emerging markets economy for nearly a decade and a half while enduring multiple scares, Turkey’s economy is now uniformly described as in dire straits by the collective London-New York banking juggernaut and its media tentacles. Despite the West’s reasoning for why the nation’s currency – the lira – is plummeting, Turkey is enduring this imposed situation due to seasoned, disciplined internal defensive economic measures, plus its insistent relations with China, Russia and Iran.
We need global system change, not national regime change.
