Billionaire Mortimer Zuckerman’s The Atlantic has conducted a poll with the Rockefeller and Ford (CIA) Foundation funded Aspen Institute and Penn, Schoen & Berland, a Bill Clinton connected market research and Democrat propaganda outfit.
Not surprisingly, the poll “finds widespread mistrust of governing elites and an aversion to spreading U.S. norms abroad,” according to Conor Friedersdorf.
“51 percent said America should neither try to spread its values nor learn from the values of other countries” and should basically mind its own business, as Ron Paul has advocated for decades.
The Atlantic finds this mindset “intriguing” and recites the establishment litany claiming America saved the world following the Second World War and engaged in an “unprecedented effort to deliberately spread American values” far and wide.
No mention here of the fact that after the war the establishment created the national security state (including a renegade and murderous CIA) and empowered a sprawling military industrial complex so dangerous outgoing president Eisenhower felt compelled to warn the American people about it.
No mention of undeclared and unconstitutional wars in Korea, Vietnam, and dozens of other places around the world. The Atlantic does not mention thousands of covert and not-so covert military and intelligence operations that have illegally deposed dozens of leaders and resulted in conflicts that have claimed the lives of millions of people and created untold suffering.
“The failures of American foreign policy, especially in Iraq and Afghanistan, surely explain some of the aversion to spreading our values,” The Atlantic writes. “Why trust the folks running things to do so in a way that doesn’t wind up being an expensive catastrophe? But the survey indicates something else is going on too. Americans have a low opinion of this country’s values, perceiving that they are in decline.”
A chart claiming to show why American values have declined does not even list the psychopathic war and mass destruction habit the ruling elite are obviously addicted to using in order to realize geostrategic objectives and domination. Instead, the multiple choice answers concentrate on declining family values and a celebrity obsessed culture.
The financial and political dominance of a cartel of international banksters – diffused as merely the “power of Wall Street” – ranks low on the chart, just below “too much political correctness.”
The good news, however, is that more and more people have contracted Jimmy Carter’s malaise – a healthy distrust and even revulsion of a psychopathic government obviously entrusted to spread the elite’s version of “American values” around the globe – endless war, murder, crimes against humanity, rigged elections and assorted financial scams and crimes.
Of course, polls and surveys are often misleading and this one sponsored by the Rockefeller trilateralists at Aspen is no different. The good news is, though, there is no denying that there is a yawning chasm between the elite and the people. The question remains: what will the people do to get rid of the scourge that is eating them alive, imperiling the planet, and working to enslave generations to come?
