William Shakespeare and the New World Order

William Shakespeare and the New World Order: "Hell is Empty and all the Devils are Here”

by Michel Chossudovsky
April 23, 2012

William Shakespeare, born 23 April 1564 (unconfirmed), baptised 26 April 1564, died 23 April 1616

Today, April 23 2012, we celebrate the birthday of William Shakespeare, who taught us never to despair in our resolve to Seak the Truth and Confront the Lie, "to unmask falsehood and bring truth to light".

Signs of our times: war criminals in high office are celebrated as messengers of peace: "And thus I clothe my naked villany...And seem a saint, when most I play the devil." (King Richard III)

Those committed to "security by military means" have taken charge of the Nobel Peace Prize... "Lawless are they that make their wills their law".

The Lie becomes the Truth.

Realities are turned upside down.

War becomes Peace.

"Humanitarian wars" are waged with the most advanced weapons systems to come to the rescue of those who suffer oppression.

"The international community" is the repository of the "Truth", which can no longer be challenged. The American inquisition prevails.

An unbinding political consensus is imposed.

Those who dare oppose "Peace" and NATO's "Responsibility to Protect" (R2P) are branded as terrorists.

Bad guys are lurking. Evil terrorists with kalashnikovs are threatening the security of the United States of America and its trillion dollar arsenal of "peace-making" nuclear weapons, which according to expert scientific opinion on contract to the Pentagon, are "harmless to the surrounding civilian population".

A good versus evil dichotomy prevails: a "Clash of Civilisations".

The West has a "Mission": “We must fight against evil in all its forms as a means to preserving the Western way of life.” The perpetrators of war are presented as the victims.

Breaking the Lie means breaking a criminal project of global destruction, in which the quest for profit is the overriding force.

This profit-driven military agenda destroys human values and transforms people into unconscious zombies.

Let us reverse the tide.

In Shakespeare's words regarding the architects of the New World Order: "Hell is empty and all the devils are here.”

Our indelible task is to send the "devils" of our time, the self-proclaimed architects of democracy and the "free market", down to where they rightfully belong.

"One may smile, and smile, and be a villain!" Challenge the "smiling" war criminals in high office and the powerful corporate lobby groups which support them.

Break the American Inquisition.

Undermine the US-NATO-Israel military crusade.

Close down the weapons factories and the military bases.

Members of the armed forces should disobey orders and refuse to participate in a criminal war.

Bring home the troops.

ENDS

Nuclear White Elephants: Australia’s New Submarine Deal

It does not get any messier or more chaotic than this. Since 2009, when Australia’s Future Submarine Program (FSP) known as Project SEA 1000, began to take shape, strategists and policy makers have been keen to pursue the next big White Elephant of defence spending. And few areas of an already wasteful area of public expenditure are more costly – often mindlessly so – than submarines... More>>
