Honduras: This is not an hysterical accusation, it is calling a spade a spade!

In a Reuters
article concerning the current political situation in Honduras:
"Isolated Honduras hunkers down, Zelaya vows action," dated July 11,
2009, inter alia, we are 'informed' that "the interim government,
installed by Congress after widely unpopular Zelaya was booted out of
the country in his pajamas last month by soldiers, has resisted
international pressure and says Zelaya's reinstatement is not
incredible how the "news agencies," backed by mighty corporations, keep
distorting the news and thus are "shaping opinion" for that matter.
report is pure ideology ... symptomatic not only of current reckless
manipulation, ruthless indoctrination, of dangerous ruling elitist
ideology, but even more so, of
centuries of permanent superstructural mind and thought control, of
global intellectual massacres of the young, innocent human minds. It is
part of the terrorist violation of human rights, of freedom of speech,
of thought, of expression. It is social, structural violence, generated
and nurtured by the capitalist private ownership of the major means of
communication. production and destruction.
This is not
an hysterical accusation, it is calling a spade a spade ... it is the
marauding quintessence of the ideological superstructure of
globalization, of capitalist imperialism.
The above is the historical duty of the ruling classes to launch 'world peace,' to
produce a favorable climate for peaceful exploitation of nature and
human labor force, to accumulate gigantic wealth and profits as
capitalists. That their international news is pharisaic and
hypocritical should not bother the international workers, they should
just not believe everything they read, not be bamboozled by the
'information wars' about 'full spectrum dominance,' be fooled by the
virtual ideological 'monsters,' Bin Laden, Fidel Castro, Chavez or Evo,
Press virtuality is one thing ... international reality is another story.
Of course, Zelaya is not a saint, he is a capitalist business man. None of us are
saints ... that is why we, in brutal class struggle, are so human, so
beautiful, truthful, loving and creative, so emancipatory. Saddam
Hussein's 'crime' ... his death sentence, was to change from the
Petro-dollar to the Petro-euro ... Zelaya's downfall was to join the
In this emancipatory venture, only concrete natural praxis and sound social
theory can guide us out of the capitalist quagmires of international
political hoaxes, lies, half-truths, hair-splitting, jargon and fairy
With regard to the Reuters' article, first of all, there is no "interim government" in Honduras.
On the one hand, there exists a military coup that has illegally put into power a
bunch of ruthless gangsters who have suspended constitutional rights
and who have ordered the military brutally to repress the people of
Honduras; on the other, there are the workers who try to resist this
Secondly, yes, Zelaya is "widely unpopular" ... but what Reuters fails to note is
that he's unpopular in the first place among Honduras' ruling
oligarchy, and certainly not among the majority of the common people.
Furthermore, he never sought to "illegally extend his rule" but only suggested a
popular, non-binding referendum be held in next November's general
elections to ask the people if they want to call for a Constituent
Assembly in order to elaborate a new constitution and thus open the
possibility to amplify their participation in what has been until now
the classical, exclusive, "representative democracy of, by and for the
ruling elites." Furthermore, in the way it is written, the article
subtly suggests that under President Chavez in Venezuela, the
constitution has been "contravened" and the President's term "illegally
What is happening here in Venezuela is the logical historical process that
eventually will involve the whole of America and the world.
Reuters, you need not fear "Venezuela's firebrand leftist President Hugo Chavez, of
contravening the constitution and seeking to illegally extend his rule."
Chavez does not fear your bosses, who are armed to the teeth ... he said it over and over again.
It is 'Big Brother' who fears what Chavez is expressing socially: the Truth, the American Time-Bomb of Human Emancipation.
