Premier Wen Jiabao doesn’t interview Western Journalists very often. The last time was when Fareed interviewed him 2 years ago. Jiabao speaks perfect English, but in this interview on Sunday he spoke in Mandarin. Premier Wen is very well read of English works such as Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith. Wen pointed out that Fareed did not understand how China was running the economy. As I knew, Wen is trying to give a safety net to a large majority of Chinese who are living a life worst than subsistence due to China’s form of Capitalism which favored government owned factories.
Many living in most of China no longer have free schools and healthcare and cannot afford the money for these so-called services. Because the Chinese government controls the media and newspapers, very little of what is going on gets out because of restrictions put on Western reporters. We get the news, but few realize that our news is also tainted by corporations and government. Sure we have more freedom here to know what is happening, but it takes effort.
Always remember that Fareed Zakaria is a member of the establishment with a Ph.D. From Harvard under Samuel Huntington who wrote the infamous document “Crisis in Democracy” in 1975 for the Trilateral Commission heads of states and supporting cast of the “right” CEOs, journalists and professors in the USA, Europe, and Japan to control “Democracy” because of the freedom and the exposure of our CIA by Senator Church. Bill Clinton also had a Trilateral type of education too at Georgetown. His favorite professor, Carroll Quigley, wrote a world history book which was based on the work of the Trilateral Commission which is pushed by the Right Wing about world domination. They were right.
"Among us today a concentration of private power without equal in history is growing."
Franklin Delano Roosevelt
After Jeb Bush and the Supreme Court stole the election from Al Gore in 2000, I finally decided that I should get a political education. Just logic alone without information is useless. What sounds right from the New York Times could be just the opposite. Background information is necessary to accurately interpret what is seen in newspapers, magazines, and television. Reading all points of views which I did helped me enormously. Each view looked convincing by itself if I read nothing else. With the internet and Google Scholar, you can read many books free. Then search the net to see if there are contradictory views.
One book Tragedy and Hope by Carroll Quigley, Bill Clinton’s favorite Georgetown Professor took about 6 months to get from Amazon.com because the powerful essentially removed it from circulation. I did not know then that the Right Wing websites had plenty of copies of this book to support their amazingly correct conspiracy theories about what the government and corporations wanted was a world government. They did not know that corporations control of governments was the conspiracy.
The widespread use of propaganda to control the way we think started before World War I where President Wilson successfully changed the antiwar mentality of Americans using widespread propaganda against the Huns and Unions. The top journalists approved of keeping Americans ignorant. They are too dumb to understand the information. More likely they will understand they are being screwed.
A union leader was sent to jail for ten years when he spoke against going to War. Professors lost their jobs when they spoke against the war. In spite of the Republican efforts, it is more open now, but such laws as the Patriot Act and government being able to put people including American citizens in jail without charging them or allowing lawyers to represent them or even telling their families what happened to them is still in place. No matter the Party, the powerful always wants more power and give it up reluctantly.
Here is an excerpted customer review of the book on www.amazon.com
Former President Clinton said in 1992: "...As a student at Georgetown, I heard that call clarified by a professor named Carroll Quigley, who said to us that America was the greatest country in the history of the world because our people have always believed in two things: that tomorrow can be better than today and that every one of us has a personal, moral responsibility to make it so."
Unfortunately, Dr. Quigley revealed the game plan of the elite when the elite (a shy group by nature and not at all given to republican government) didn't want it publicized. Far from wanting to hide this "network" (as he called it), Quigley was proud of it.
"I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960's, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. I have objected, both in the past and recently, to a few of its policies...but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known."
Thus, unfortunately, Tragedy and Hope was pulled from bookshelves nationwide and recalled faster than an exploding Easter Bunny, never to be published again, except for a highly abbreviated edition. But if you can pick up a copy of this book, you'll find how things often worked behind the scenes of government and the worldwide ambitions of "the network."
If you simply want to know about the network and how it operated up until this book was published, I recommend Dr. W. Cleon Skousen's "Naked Capitalist," which I believe is still in print.
