Yesterday was Shakespeare’s birthday: 23 April. The 400th anniversary of his death.
William Shakespeare, born 23 April 1564 (unconfirmed), baptised 26 April 1564, died 23 April 1616
We celebrate the 451st anniversary of the birth of of William Shakespeare. who taught us never to despair in our resolve to Seek 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”.
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.
In Shakespeare’s words regarding the architects of the New World Order:
“Hell is empty and all the devils are here.”
“One may smile, and smile, and be a villain!”
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.
