RL: Elon Musk is the US corporate leader who wants to get his mitts on that lithium more than anyone else. I always suspected he was a piece of crap but I could never quite prove it (though stories about how he forbids unions and grossly abuses his workers were suggestive), and if it’s true that he was behind this fascist coup, then I was right.
SHI: Musk’s a pure scumbag. Pretends to be a humble person and has his mitts on every new technology that will be used in a future Orwellian state – security cameras, smart vehicles, biometrics, thought control (Artificial Intelligence), etc.. Just another Antichrist agent. I hate this man; he makes me sick to my guts.
I don’t hate all capitalists. I mean when I was in college I used to look up to Bill Gates, as I was aspiring to be a computer nerd myself. Sure he’s a psychopath and a monopolist, but at least he’s someone I can relate to and have a good conversation with. The likes of Elon Musk have a God complex that sees all human beings as tiny insects.
In other words, Elon Musk is a monster. I was worried that that might be the truth about that man. There was always something creepy about that man. I can’t quite put my finger on it.
Would Bill Gates support fascist coups by the US government? That’s my litmus test. Almost 100% of US corporations support fascist coups to remove leftwing governments. They will not abide any leftwing governments anywhere on Earth.
Not all capitalists act bad. In a number of countries, the capitalists are reigned in by the state. The Indian capitalists at least do not support Western corporate imperialism and do not go around the world overthrowing every Left regime in sight.
India has good relations with a lot of Left countries. So that means that the Indian state is not run by its capitalists. Instead the Indian state, for all of its faults, is a proud leader of the Nonaligned Movement, which I strongly support.
I also think that to some extent, India has a national economy and has a state that in some sense guides and runs the economy. There is some sort of an Indian state that is separate from the Indian capitalists. Well, right there in the Indian Constitution it says that India is a socialist country, so there is that pedigree.
For instance, Indian capitalists apparently don’t care that India has good relations with Venezuela, Iran, Syria, etc. Indian capitalists are perfectly willing to abide by and trade with a leftwing country.
The capitalists in Turkey, Russia, a lot of the Arab World (except the Gulf countries – especially Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and UAE, which are in bed with Western corporate imperialism, much to their discredit), South Asia in general, Southeast Asia, most of East Asia, Oceania, Central Asia, and most of Africa are similar. The states that those capitalists reside in are all part of the non-aligned movement.
The real fascist monsters of the world who won’t abide by any left government anywhere on Earth are the US, Canada, Australia, most all of Europe (with sometimes exceptions of Italy and Spain, Japan, and any rightwing government in Latin America.
They run around the world strong-arming every country to let their corporations in to rape and steal the resources of that country, and if you don’t let them in, they get hostile, put sanctions on you, or try to fund a fascist coup. And most of those European states are officially socialist (social democracies).
I’m starting to have a very low opinion of European social democrats. For one, they all support fascist coups against democratically elected leftwing leaders. Since when do socialists support fascist coups against leftwing and socialist regimes?
I was mystified for some time but then I realized that social democracy, for all of its benefits, is basically just capitalism. Even in Sweden, 93% of the economy is capitalist. So the foreign policies of the European social democracies are to do whatever benefits their corporations. The European social democracies are run by their corporations, just like the US.
European social democracies used to be different back in the 1980’s. They supported the Communist Bloc, the Sandinistas, and even the FARC rebels in Colombia.
Something terrible happened, maybe the fall of the Eastern Bloc. After that, there was one superpower, the US, and I suppose all the European countries in NATO just lined up behind the sole superpower.
In case you are interested, NATO has always been run by the US. It’s basically an American-run organization. The rest just follow along.

I think you didn’t get the memo. India has drastically changed in the last 5-6 years since that bastard Modi showed up. The old Constitution is in flames. The country is just a breath away from full-blown Hindutvas fascism.
Fuck non-alignment. The new India under the right-wing BJP is in bed with USA, Israel, and every corporate lobbyist. Socialist? They’re eliminating state-run corporations, making public sector banks so sick so that they can be sold out for nothing.
BJP is terrorizing Muslims, Christians, and even liberal Hindus. They’re murdering journalists in the open (Gauri Lankesh, etc.). They’re rewarding rapists instead of providing justice to the raped victims.
An 8-year old Kashmiri girl, Baby Asifa, was raped by Hindutva fanatics in a Hindu temple of all places. While the social media was shocked over the incident, lecherous Indian men were searching for “Baby Asifa porn”. Modi rewarded the rapists by giving them party tickets for elections. That’s the kind of scumbag he is.
Mob lynchings are the order of the day in modern India. You can get killed for speaking out against the evil Hindutvadis. All press freedoms have been curbed. All Indian news media outlets are now unreliable at best, and government mouthpieces at worst.
The worst part is, many educated and well-off Indians seem to be supporting this fascist takeover of the country. It’s a complete Orwellian nightmare.
If the Indian corporations ran the Indian state and India was part of the Western corporate imperialist system, there’s no way that they would be trading with Venezuela, Iran, Syria, etc. I believe they even have decent relations with North Korea. No radical capitalist hard rightwing state would trade with Venezuela. So their foreign policy is not very rightwing IMHO.
Looks like they are pursuing a rightwing pro-corporate policy at home but they still have an independent, more or less nonaligned foreign policy. As I said, only a non-aligned or leftwing country would trade with Venezuela and Iran.
I believe that India prides itself on an independent foreign policy if I am not mistaken. Their attitude is you can’t push us around and make us support and oppose who you want us to. We will support and oppose any nation that we wish to.
Not anymore. India is becoming more or less a client state of the Western powers, Russia, Israel, China whatever…it’s everyone’s bitch.
The Americans have been able to prevent India from buying Iran oil. Iran is so close next door probably the best country to buy oil from. They are even willing to accept Indian rupees for payment. I mean that’s a big one. Who really uses Indian rupees outside India, Nepal and maybe UAE.
But no we can’t have Iran oil because Donald Trump or Netanyahu give a call to Modi and the deal is off.
You should Google a bit about “mob lynchings in India”. The place is breaking down faster than a Mexican pinata. I predict that India will splinter along regional fault lines in the coming decade. I think it’s better if the territory of India is broken down into a patchwork of 5-6 independent countries.
The idea of India itself is not a historical one, it’s a British creation. It’s a subcontinent that begins at the borders of Afghanistan all the way to Myanmar. I think the creation of Pakistan was justified because the people over there didn’t want to identify with these mob lynchers.
The Americans kinda ignore it if India imports a few barrels of petroleum from Venezuela or Syria. But not the official agencies. Mostly a lot of petroleum pirates who sell the commodity in the black market. It’s an organized slumlord racket. Although the government can’t import oil from Iran for legitimate needs, the black marketeers can.
Do you know Indian software industry cannot export to Iran, North Korea and a few other countries banned by the US? It is subject to the same regulations as American software companies. There’s nothing called “Indian software regulations”. The entirety of Indian software coolies exist to service US clients (with around 20% European exposure).
The US has a vested interest in making India a digital colony. I mean it’s a pretty bad situation for the country – you have to find a way to keep the millions of educated Indians employed. So, they have this deal with Washington.
I am cheering for Pakistan to invade this shithole called India. I like Pakistanis, they’re a better people than Indians. Fuck this British Empire creation – India must balkanize very soon.
