Dialogos Radio’s recent interview with economist, analyst, and former assistant secretary of the United States Treasury Paul Craig Roberts has been featured in Mint Press News! In this wide-ranging interview, Roberts discusses the election of Donald Trump in the United States, the recent referendums in Britain and Italy, the issue of so-called “fake news,” developments in Syria, and more.
Our latest article for Mint Press News, “The Ongoing ‘Fake News’ Battle Obscures The Truth About Fake Democracies,” has been published. In this piece, we examine the facade of democracy which exists in the European Union today, referencing the Greek referendum result of 2015, the recent British referendum result in favor of Brexit and the danger of it being overturned, the possibility that the Italian referendum result will also be ignored, and we connect these issues to the hot-button topic of so-called “fake news” and hysteria over the supposed “Russian menace.”
Following in the footsteps of voters in Britain, in the United States, and even to an extent, voters in Greece, Italian voters vociferously said no to neoliberalism recently, in a referendum which was a pure power grab by the country’s second consecutive non-elected prime minister, Matteo Renzi, a favorite of his European Union and Eurozone paymasters. Just like British voters in the referendum on Brexit, just like American voters who in many senses rejected Hillary Clinton and all she represented more than they voted for Donald Trump per se, just like Greek voters with their own confused and muddled but resounding no in July 2015, Italian voters put a stop to attempts by an non-elected prime minister to consolidate power and to subvert the country’s democratic political system, forcing Renzi’s bluff, as he had pledged prior to the referendum that he would resign if a “no” vote prevailed.
