A culpa de alguma direita é de alguma esquerda

Daqui a uma semana Donald Trump pode vir a ser o presidente dos EUA. Será pior para os norte-americanos, sobretudo os hispânicos, mas para o resto do mundo será provavelmente mais inofensivo do que Hillary Clinton, posto que será o presidente mais isolado de todo o cadastro da Casa Branca. A confirmar-se, o mundo vai fingir o espanto com a mesma hipocrisia com que fingiu não entender que a principal responsável pelo sucesso de Trump foi Clinton. A radicalização do império é obra de quem sempre o serviu mascarado, e a tese é válida para todos. Haveria Le Pen sem o fracasso de Hollande? Haveria Tories sem a capitulação do Labour? Haveria Temer sem Dilma? Pagará o PSOE no Estado Espanhol o preço que pagou o PASOK na Grécia por viabilizarem governos de direita? E na Grécia, que preço pagará toda a esquerda pelo Syriza andar a governar com Junker? A pouca exigência do pragmatismo da social democracia é o melhor amigo do recrudescimento fascista. Ou a esquerda compreende isso ou não será fácil arrancar o socialismo ao futuro.

One thought on “A culpa de alguma direita é de alguma esquerda

  1. Deixo aqui como comentário o que acabo de ler “Barrel Bomb: the Cataclysmic Close of Campaign 2016”:
    Well, here we are: at the bottom of the barrel under forty feet of slag. In a few days’ time, we’ll know our fate: the five-alarm fire of Trump Rule (oh, how those police unions are chomping at the bit!) or the Clinton Age of Hyper-War (oh, how those neocons are chomping at the bit!). In either case, the entrenched coagulation of corporate interests and war profiteers that have strangled the peace, prosperity and prospects of the American people will not be budged an inch. The change that people are so desperately hungry for — so hungry that that some of them might well elect an Establishment insider whose sinister clowning makes him appear to be a ‘rebel’ — will not come. Thus their bitterness will grow deeper, more sour, erupting more and more often in physical violence: from militarized police against protestors, from Trump-empowered racists (if he wins or loses), from extremist militias, from angry, maddened people on every side. And of course there will be more — much more — of the horrific, never-ending, globe-spanning violence of the bipartisan Terror War that churns on and on, no matter who is sitting temporarily in the White House.

    There’s no use in pretending that’s not what we face. But there’s also no use in pretending that this situation is somehow sui generis, some terribly unlucky conflation of unforeseen circumstances coming together at this particular time. It is in fact the culmination and embodiment of the deliberate choices of the most powerful forces in society: the choices to enrich themselves beyond all reason and extend their military and economic dominance over the earth.

    Prossegue CHRIS FLOYD no Counterpunch:
    It doesn’t matter that many if not most of the practitioners and functionaries of this system “believe” in its rightness. It doesn’t matter that brutal neoliberal nostrums and extremist imperial notions have become religious dogmas for those who see themselves as the “meritocracy.” It doesn’t matter if the leaders and factotums genuinely believe in the “exceptionalism” they preach or if they are cynical power-seekers. It doesn’t matter if they actually believe their rapacious financial machinations are reflections of the “natural law” of the “the market” that will eventually benefit all, or if they know themselves to be what they really are: ugly souls disfigured by greed. The end result has been the same: a long series of deliberate choices by a bipartisan elite that have hollowed out the lives and communities and futures of millions of Americans, and created a living hell of war, ruin and hatred over much of the earth.
