Vladimir Putin Straight-Talk Over Western Double-Talk
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
Double-talking/double-dealing politicians infest the US and other Western countries.
Everything they do is suspect. Nothing they say can be taken at face value.
Vladimir Putin operates by a higher standard, his actions benefitting ordinary people, his public remarks always candidly refreshing.
His virtual address last week to other G20 summit leaders was no exception to how he says what he means and means what he says.
He stressed what he called “unprecedented…problems humanity…faced” this year, notably a “systemic economic crisis the world has not known” for many decades.
“Millions of people…lost…jobs and incomes.”
Enormous risks remain unresolved, notably “mass longterm unemployment…subsequent growth of poverty and social insecurity.”
“The role of the G20 is to” stabilize things and turn them around.
He knows full well that what’s gone on throughout most of 2020 was made-in-the-USA.
The scheme is all about a diabolical Great Reset, dark forces promoting a dystopian new world order that’s more harmful to most people than the earlier one — so privileged interests can more greatly benefit by exploiting most others.
Putin’s good faith interest in working for economic recovery and protecting the health and well-being of ordinary people is undermined by exploitive Western priorities.
“Russia took unparalleled anti-crisis steps as it gave top priority to the key and fundamental value – people’s lives and health,” he explained.
Policies by Western nations have been and continue to be polar opposite, making things worse by rubbing salt in an open wound — metastasized worldwide.
In stark contrast to Russian aid to small and medium-sized businesses, the US and other Western countries let them go under and disappear from the landscape so Wall Street and other corporate favorites can benefit by eliminating competition.
For all his many pluses and straight talk candor, Putin falsely claimed that the “MF and the World Bank rendered significant assistance to developing countries.”
Their US-controlled mission is all about financial terrorism, exploiting, not benefitting, nations and their people.
They foster oppressive indebtedness and structural adjustment harshness.
The latter includes privatization of state enterprises, mass layoffs, deregulation, deep social spending cuts, wage freezes or cuts, corporate-friendly tax cuts, crushing trade unionism, and unrestricted market access for predatory Western corporations.
They debt-entrap countries, strip them of their material wealth and resources, shift them from public to private hands, prohibit democratic values, hollow out nations into backwaters, destroy middle class societies, and turn workers into serfs so Western monied interests benefit.
Putin knows better than to praise predatory institutions. A retraction and apology are in order.
He correctly called for a debt moratorium on developing nations and more constructive actions to prevent dire socio-economic conditions from worsening.
He urged containment of protectionism and abandonment of illegal sanctions.
G20 nations “should continue searching for new approaches to reforming the World Trade Organization to meet present-day challenges,” he said.
He stressed that dire economic conditions should “become an opportunity to alter the trajectory of global development, preserve the favorable environment and climate, ensure equal conditions for all nations and peoples, build up effective tools of multilateral cooperation and key international institutions while drawing upon the UN Charter and universally accepted norms and principles of international law.”
G20 countries, the world’s largest economies, should lead the way by adopting policies that facilitate restoration of normality.
Exploitive US-led Western practices prevent implementation of actions Putin urged.
Russia, China, Iran, and other independent nations are on their own in dealing with the severest economic crisis conditions in modern memory.
Cooperative actions would best mitigate adversity that’s likely to harm humanity for sometime to come.
That’s what US dark forces planned. Overcoming dystopia represents a monumental challenge.
Achieving it would defeat their best laid plans.
Ordinary people everywhere are up against their Malthusian harshness.
Its holy trinity mandates no public sphere, unrestrained corporate empowerment, eliminating social spending while using state resources for corporate handouts, national security and internal control.
What benefits the privileged few is the worst of all possible worlds for most others.
That’s what Great Reset exploitation is all about — plundering, not improving and preserving planet earth for the betterment of humanity.
New millennium new world order planners won’t tolerate anything not exclusively serving their interests.
Their ideal world is dystopia for most others.
