US political freedom an "illusion"

The Blog


Writing for The Rutherford Institute, US writer John W. Whitehead argued that the US democratic political system is fake.


From the article, titled "Don't Be Fooled by the Political Game":
Now we find ourselves once again caught up in the spectacle of another presidential election, and once again the majority of Americans are acting as if this election will make a difference and bring about change—as if the new boss will be different from the old boss. - See more at: https://www.rutherford.org/publications_resources/john_whiteheads_commentary/dont_be_fooled_by_the_political_game_the_illusion_of_freedom_in_america#sthash.2b7at5Fr.dpuf
Blaming the ability of the elite to consistently deceive the American people largely via the media, Whitehead described the American people as a "permanent underclass" that does not see any political power. Failure to stay informed or take to the streets in protest when successive governments ignore the opinions of the people and stampede the country to war based on lies against the judgment of the people results in a corrupt regime that ignores the will the people.


Democracy has been hollowed out on the American homeland to the point of being a farce that serves to crown a system of dictatorship, according to Whitehead. If so, then this raises questions about what exactly the United States is trying to teach other countries when it wages wars for the purpose of spreading "democracy".
