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

Binoy Kampmark: Foreseeable Risk: Omicron Makes Its Viral Debut
It has been written about more times than any care to remember. Pliny the Elder, that old cheek, told us that Africa always tended to bring forth something new: Semper aliquid novi Africam adferre. The suggestion was directed to hybrid animals, but in the weird pandemic wonderland that is COVID-19, all continents now find themselves bringing forth their types, making their contributions. It just so happens that it’s southern Africa’s turn... More>>


Binoy Kampmark: Totalitarian Cyber-Creep: Mark Zuckerberg In The Metaverse

Never leave matters of maturity to the Peter Panners of Silicon Valley. At their most benign, they are easily dismissed as potty and keyboard mad. At their worst, their fantasies assume the noxious, demonic forms that reduce all users of their technology to units of information and flashes of data... More>>

Keith Rankin: 'Influenza' Pandemics In New Zealand's Past
On Tuesday (16 Nov) I was concerned to hear this story on RNZ's Checkpoint (National distances itself from ex-MP after video with discredited academic). My concern here is not particularly with the "discredited academic", although no academic should suffer this kind of casual public slur. (Should we go further and call Simon Thornley, the academic slurred, a 'trailing epidemiologist'? In contrast to the epithet 'leading epidemiologist', as applied to Rod Jackson in this story from Newshub.) Academics should parley through argument, not insult... More>>



Gasbagging In Glasgow: COP26 And Phasing Down Coal

Words can provide sharp traps, fettering language and caging definitions. They can also speak to freedom of action and permissiveness. At COP26, that permissiveness was all the more present in the haggling ahead of what would become the Glasgow Climate Pact... More>>

Globetrotter: Why Julian Assange’s Inhumane Prosecution Imperils Justice For Us All

When I first saw Julian Assange in Belmarsh prison, in 2019, shortly after he had been dragged from his refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy, he said, “I think I am losing my mind.”
He was gaunt and emaciated, his eyes hollow and the thinness of his arms was emphasized by a yellow identifying cloth tied around his left arm... More>>

Dunne Speaks: Labour's High Water Mark
If I were still a member of the Labour Party I would be feeling a little concerned after this week’s Colmar Brunton public opinion poll. Not because the poll suggested Labour is going to lose office any time soon – it did not – nor because it showed other parties doing better – they are not... More>>
