An old story

21 April 2011

The leadership and elites in client-states survive as long as they can demonstrate that they provide the  “stability” that allows for indirect control by their imperial masters. When there has been a on-going resistance to the imperial system, any populist movement is a threat to be dealt with severely.  However, to preserve the client-regime’s legitimacy, populists cannot simply be eliminated by the imperial power, but their elimination by the client regime has to be spun as upholding the state’s relative independence, or upholding national values.

Even if not directly connected with the anti-imperialist movement, especially when, say, a worker gains prominence as a teacher and is calling for radical reorganization of the status quo, with “special rights” for the poor, action is required.  Should such a proletarian leader start to attract a following, the elites are well advised to trump up some charges on which to discredit the leader and the movement, or — if necessary — eliminate him, even if it means turning him over to the imperialists for some sort of  “extraordinary rendition”.

Like… crucifixion.
