The British Observer newspaper published an article stating that there is a link between the British Prime Minister Rishi Sonak And the Argentine president Javier Millie And the former US president Donald TrumpThe article called the network of mysterious dark money centers behind the policies of the three.
The article – written by columnist for the British newspaper The Guardian, George Monbiot – explained that these centers are behind the policies Neoliberalism all over the world.
The writer began his article by discussing Javier Mele's policies, saying that they include elements of fascism, elements borrowed from the Chinese state, and elements that reflect the history of… Argentina Dictatorship But much of the government program announced by Milley sounds eerily familiar, here in the Northern Hemisphere.
He added that it is an intensive program of massive cuts that lead to the demolition of public services, the privatization of public assets, the centralization of political power, the dismissal of civil servants, the removal of restrictions imposed on companies and financial lobbies, the destruction of regulations that protect workers and the vulnerable, the support of landlords against tenants, and the criminalization of peaceful protest. Restricting the right to strike.
Striking similarities between their programs
The writer said that Milley is trying with a broad “emergency” decree and a brutal “reform bill” that bears striking similarities to the “mini” budget drawn up by the former British Prime Minister. Liz Terracewhich dashed the hopes of many poor and middle-class people and exacerbated the unrest that now dominates public life.
He stressed that this is not a coincidence, explaining that the Terras program was greatly influenced by Argentine neoliberal thought, which belongs to the so-called Atlas Network, a global coordination body that broadly promotes the same political and economic package everywhere it works.
The writer explained that the Atlas Network was founded in 1981 by a British citizen named Anthony Fisher, who is the founder of the Institute of Economic Affairs and one of the first members of the Atlas Network, and this institute largely developed the Les Trass political program.
Politicians are just faces worn by the programme
Monbiot said that pressure groups representing companies in Britain are still shaping Sunak's policies, and are also a member of the Atlas Network, adding that it is possible to describe certain policies as Milli's, Bolsonaro's, or Terrace's, Johnson's, or Sunak's policies, but they are all variations on the same themes. By dark money centers that belong to the same network, and these presidents and prime ministers are just the faces that the program wears.
The writer added that many of the members of this network refuse to reveal who is financing them, but with the flow of information it was discovered that the Atlas network itself and many of its members had taken money from the financing networks established by the Koch brothers (an American family that owns the second largest group of companies in the United States) and others. Right-wing billionaires, from oil, coal and tobacco companies and other life-defying interests.
Nominal democracies become new aristocracies
Monbiot explained that dark money centers and the Atlas Network are considered a very effective way to hide and accumulate power and influence. It is the channel through which billionaires and corporations influence politics without showing their hand, teach them the most effective policies and tactics to overcome resistance to their agenda, and then spread these policies and tactics around the world. .
The writer concluded by saying that this is how nominal democracies become new aristocracies.
Regarding Trump’s policies, the writer said that they are the worst, as the former US president never developed a cohesive platform of his own. His policies were written by one of the dark money centers in a 900-page mandate for leadership produced by a group of thinkers led by the Heritage Foundation, a member of the Atlas Network, and that many… Some of the proposals contained in these policies are terrifying and have nothing to do with public demands, and everything in them to do with the demands of capital.
