Pictured above: a banner on a vehicle in an Italian airport, saying “From Russia with Love”. In the background, Russian medical supplies are being off-loaded for Italy’s citizens. All of the huge global outreach Russians, Chinese, Cubans, Iranians, Venezuelans and other socialist-anti-imperialists have done to help both friends and foes fight the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has been denigrated in the West’s Big Lie Propaganda Machine (BLPM) as “cynical propaganda”. What a sad and pathetic response to the dignity and high ideals of human solidarity.

SARS-CoV-2 is exposing geopolitical fault lines as wide as chasms and it is safe to say that humanity will never be the same again – ever – as a result of the ongoing global panic and hysteria. For communist-socialist-anti-imperialist peoples, the future is bright. For Eurangloland’s 99% and its many vassal states across the Pale Blue Dot, I fear there are dark, dystopian days ahead.
You can see why Euranglolanders are brainwashed 24/7 by the Big Lie Propaganda Machine (BLPM), to start them foaming at the mouth and convulsing, at the mere mention of communism and socialism. If these citizens did objective research, they would start demanding real, systemic change for the betterment of the 99%, and not just settle for the 1%’s palliative head fakes, breadcrumbs and being cowered by nonstop deep state false flags. That’s what the gangster bankster oligarchs fear the most, and these days with SARS-CoV-2, you can see the desperate levels these elites are pushing the BLPM, to keep their subjects from asking questions.
It’s hard to step outside the Great Western Firewall and see the truth. It took me decades to finally understand how humanity works. I bared my soul about my slow, painful arc of awareness throughout The China Trilogy (see below). The prologue of Book #2, China Rising sets the tone (https://chinarising.puntopress.com/china-rising-the-book/). You don’t have to write three books like I did, to finally break free from the chains of BLPM bondage. Let me save you a lot of work. China Rising Radio Sinoland’s researched, experiential articles, videos and audio podcasts are a great shortcut to regain your mental faculties and clear vision.
In a nutshell, comparing socialism to capitalism is a no-brainer. Below is a very simple comparative table,
|Rule by the 1% oligarchy, hidden behind corrupt, Potemkin “pluralistic democracy”.||People-focused, centralized governance that devolves decision making to the 99%.|
|Private profits are vacuumed up to the 1%.||Economy, development and productivity are directed to improving the lives of the 99%.|
|Speculative, financial investment for the 1%.||Real economy jobs and investment in infrastructure and public services for the 99%.|
|Secretive, deep state governance to benefit the 1%.||Publicly discussed and legislated 5-to-10-year socioeconomic plans for the 99%.|
|Short term profits for the 1%.||Long term profits for public development to benefit the 99%.|
|For profit human services that many/most of the 99% cannot afford.||Publicly provided human services for the 99%.|
|Privatize and monetize everything to drive profits to the 1%.||Nationalize key industries and sectors to stabilize jobs and the economy, for the benefit of the 99%.|
|Exploitation of the 99% and their resources for the profit of the 1%.||Solidarity among the 99% for the greater good.|
|Me-Myself-Marlboro Man.||We work and cooperate together for the commonwealth.|
|Greed, hustling and thieving.||Sharing, win-win mutual benefit.|
|Global wars, sanctions, blockades, invasions, occupations, piracy, genocide and resource theft.||Self-defense against capitalism’s wars, sanctions, blockades, invasions, occupations, piracy, genocide and resource theft.|
|Capitalism kills and creates chaos.||Socialism saves and creates.|
|Follow the 1%’s money to see behind the headlines.||Follow the 99%’s development in the headlines.|
|1%’s government controlled, corporate BLPM hiding behind a puppet, presstitute “free media”.||The 99% know their media is people-owned and government controlled, for their social harmony and economic stability.|
I could go on, but you get the idea. This is based on a lifetime of peeling-the-onion discovery, traveling to 85 countries, living and working in the US, Africa, Middle East, China, France and now Thailand. The BLPM is so good at brainwashing, that in spite of starting my global journeys in 1977, being a Peace Corps volunteer 1980-1982, it wasn’t until we moved back to China for the second time in 2010, that I finally was able to live outside the Matrix. I’m not proud of being such a slow learner, but better late than never.
Of course, Eurangloland’s owners don’t want you to join me to look outside the Great Western Firewall, past the BLPM and start thinking for yourselves. Otherwise, I repeat, you’d begin to demand real, lasting systemic transformation for the betterment of you, your family, your community, your country and all the world’s 99% – at their expense.
The SARS-CoV-2 global panic and hysteria is bringing global anti-imperialist citizens together, while at the same time, showing the incredible psychopathic, Marlboro Man greed of the capitalist West. For the prior, it’s all about taking care of each other. In the latter case, it’s cage fighting, saurian survival. For anti-imperialists, it called solidarity. The capitalist West is brainwashed by the likes of Margaret Thatcher, who nihilistically nullified 10,000 years of settled civilizations by claiming that,
There is no such thing as society…only individual men and women”.
The headlines are full of countless contrasts, so here’s a sampling,
While China fined a pharmacy over $300,000, for jacking up the price of facemasks during the pandemic (https://chinarising.puntopress.com/2020/02/27/transcript-a-day-in-the-life-of-a-student-exiled-outside-china-because-of-covid-19-face-to-face-interview-with-chara-vega-langlois-brown-china-rising-radio-sinoland-200222-2/), capitalists were and are busy exploiting the public’s fears, like this couple below,
Many Westerners admire and envy gangsters like this, saying, Why didn’t I think of that”? When I interviewed Morris Berman (https://chinarising.puntopress.com/2019/03/09/morris-berman-talks-about-how-the-american-dream-is-destroying-earth-and-hopes-for-the-future-china-rising-radio-sinoland-190309/), he reminded everyone that America is a nation of hustlers. True, but it would be more accurate to say capitalism around the world is a system tailor-made for hustlers.
If you are shocked to learn that capitalists oligarchs are working hard to steal supplies and drugs for obscene profit and to take care their own, then you are still blind inside the Great Western Firewall (https://journal-neo.org/2020/04/10/how-organized-crime-is-spreading-covid-19-and-raking-in-cash/). Western governments and NATO are the public face of gangster organized crime, “legally” managing drugs, arms, money laundering and human trafficking profits for the 1% (https://chinarising.puntopress.com/2019/07/02/douglas-valentine-on-china-rising-radio-sinoland-the-cia-is-global-capitalisms-secret-gangster-army-190702/).
While China is sending hundreds of medical staff and countless millions of dollars/euros of supplies and medicines to countries all over the world (this is just one of many examples: https://theintercept.com/2020/03/18/coronavirus-china-world-power/), the US is using extortion and cash to steal antiviral goods destined for other countries (https://www.politico.com/news/2020/04/03/ppe-world-supplies-coronavirus-163955 and https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/apr/02/global-battle-coronavirus-equipment-masks-tests). Socialists have far-thinking vision and act collectively. Capitalists have reptile brains, exploit and exterminate accordingly.
Socialist Iran sent 300,000 people across the country, to check on their citizens and help them with the pandemic, get free testing and medical care (https://www.wsj.com/articles/iran-mobilizes-300-000-people-and-deploys-drones-and-water-cannon-to-halt-the-spread-of-coronavirus-11583157765), while French President Emmanuel Macron is working overtime to fatten profits for Big Pharma, at the expense of the 99% (https://asiatimes.com/2020/03/why-france-is-hiding-a-cheap-and-tested-virus-cure/).
Socialist Venezuela is using neighborhood support committees to coordinate its control of SARS-CoV-2, while the United States piles on more and more genocidal sanctions, as well as blocking it from getting an emergency $5 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to save lives. This is crystal clear logic for Western, psychopath capitalists (https://www.rt.com/news/484999-iran-sanctions-coronavirus-oliver-stone/).
Communist Cuba has one of the best medical systems in the world and an advanced biotechnology sector. It is sending hundreds of doctors around the world and making sure that its cutting-edge drug, Heberon is available, along with the 23 antiviral medicines it produces (http://www.ahora.cu/en/health/8080-cuba-can-produce-23-drugs-to-treat-coronavirus-working-on-a-vaccine-against-it). This, while the US’s exterminating blockade against Cuba prevented Jack Ma and Alibaba from sending medical supplies there (https://www.telesurenglish.net/news/cuba–new-us-interference-during-special-situation-by-covid19-20200401-0002.html). Cuban citizens have been quietly outraged since 1959 (https://www.rt.com/news/485557-cuba-us-sanctions-covid/).
Anti-imperialist Russia is sending antiviral supplies and equipment all over the world, even to countries like the US, that are trying to destroy it (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8180393/What-Russias-coronavirus-supplies-United-States-spark-criticism-home.html). As usual, all the nobility of global socialist solidarity is immediately vilified in the BLPM as “shameless propaganda”. Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte is ashamed of Eurangloland (https://www.rt.com/news/485357-conte-offended-russian-aid-italy/), as we all should be.
It goes on and on. Communist North Korea cannot trust any international body like the World Health Organization (WHO) or the United Nations (UN), since these organizations are totally infested, corrupted and controlled by its Western saboteurs, hellbent on a color revolution there, so it is having to go it alone during the pandemic. I suspect that trusted allies China and Russia are quietly lending behind-the-scenes support. Other anti-imperial countries like Vietnam, Eritrea and Nicaragua seem to be getting by as well.
Meanwhile, capitalism’s globokiller Wehrmacht and its Gladio/proxy armies (https://chinarising.puntopress.com/2017/12/27/china-has-democracy-and-the-west-has-dictatorship-171227/) continue to rain death and destruction around the world: in Donbass (https://chinarising.puntopress.com/2020/03/10/russell-bentley-the-donbass-cowboy-talks-about-surviving-war-and-living-in-his-newly-adopted-country-china-rising-radio-sinoland-200310/), Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Columbia, along with its many hundreds of secret and not so secret special forces infiltrating most countries, especially in South America (https://worldbeyondwar.org/united-states-military-bases-in-the-caribbean-central-and-south-america/) and Africa (https://www.mintpressnews.com/africom-us-military-africa/248552/).
While capitalist countries cannibalize themselves and do everything possible to destroy its perceived enemies during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, socialist-anti-imperialist countries are joining hands across continents to learn from each other, improve themselves and cooperate for mutual benefit and a multipolar future.
In the meantime, Eurangloland is getting inexorably sucked into a dystopian police state, with
1) forced Big Pharma vaccines (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/apr/8/anthony-fauci-sets-stage-mandatory-vaccine/),
2) the doublespeak Trojan horse “Green New Deal” (https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2019/08/10/misanthropic-bankers-behind-green-new-deal/),
3) implanted electronic identification, via Agenda ID2020 (https://www.globalresearch.ca/coronavirus-causes-effects-real-danger-agenda-id2020/5706153),
4) renouncing daily freedoms (https://www.rt.com/usa/485549-philly-maks-coronavirus-public-transit/),
5) losing human dignity (https://www.rt.com/op-ed/485540-police-twitter-shaming-pile-ons/),
6) sacrificing civil liberties like voting (https://www.nytimes.com/article/2020-campaign-primary-calendar-coronavirus.html) and
7) being forced to present government approved permits to leave the house or go to work (https://www.businessinsider.com/coronavirus-france-requires-form-leave-house-walk-shopping-2020-3).
These are not issues in socialist-anti-imperial countries, yet my admiration for real Western political conservatives and principled libertarians is going up by the day.
For the world’s communist-socialist-anti-imperial freedom fighters, the future looks bright. They will thrive in solidarity, cooperation, mutual benefit and collective sacrifice. For the capitalist West and its many vassals, this SARS-CoV-2 nightmare, rapidly spiraling into fascist, socioeconomic hell is just a warmup being foisting on the 99% by their oligarchic 1%. I’m sorry to say, but it’s going to get much, much worse. Martial law (https://www.fort-russ.com/2020/03/revealed-u-s-plan-for-military-rule-under-coronavirus-threat-newsweek/), Continuance of Government (COG- https://www.globalresearch.ca/the-911-plan-cheney-rumsfeld-and-the-continuity-of-government/5320879) and the Hunger Games’ post-apocalyptic Panem, with its oligarchic Capitol and thirteen impoverished districts full of cowering sheeple – here we come.
I have many friends and family in Eurangloland, and I’m very concerned for their future. I can’t blame many poor, working- and middle-class Americans for being armed to the teeth. Their corrupt, oligarchic governments have been screwing them since Virginia in 1607. It’s going to get really ugly on Main Street, as well as the Champs-Elysées. The proud French are anti-elite fighters from way back.
To those who man the barricades, please refer to my aforementioned comparative table for inspiration. Aim at the 1% and not at each other. Throughout Western history, as soon as the poor, working-, middle classes, different races and creeds organize for long lasting systemic change, the oligarchs crank up the BLPM to divide and conquer them. For centuries, the elites have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.
Now, will the Western capitalist 1% officialize their long-lusted-for (SARS-CoV-2) police state? Will they complete their dystopian, fascist final solution to crush the 99% into social submission and economic slavery?
Euranglolanders and their vassals could all use a big dose of socialist-anti-imperialist solidarity right now.
