After watching Yuri Bezmenov's lecture for the third time:
...and seeing the weird shit going on in the US (the self loathing, the taking over of city centres by gangs of revolutionaries and criminals. the indoctrination of our youth to despise the "system" and society in general, the demonisation of the police), it is hard to not conclude that there is something in what he says.
The thing is, what the US administration is doing would be a lot easier to swallow if it wasn't being instrumented by the moronic buffoon that is about to be kicked out of the White House. Even some small evidence to at least justify these actions would be helpful. Perhaps they don't have anything concrete, but know that *something* has to be done to reduce the west's dependence on China, or to kill their influence in western life. I dunno.
I find myself more often than not defending these companies against what seems to be rather baseless and unfair treatment at the hands of the US government. Perhaps, however, these companies are merely pawns in a global political conflict that is barely visible to us. Or perhaps Trump is just a complete tool. Or maybe both.
