Signs of the Times for Mon, 28 Aug 2006

Paul Craig Roberts
Many readers have praised me for my courage in broaching taboo subjects and stating obvious truths. Others denounce me for "being unpatriotic and distrusting our government." One reader, Susan Hartman, wrote to me that I was obviously in the pay of Islamic Jihadists and that she had reported me to the FBI.

Last week we wrote about the strange dominance of neo-classical economics and its dependence on an impoverished model of human beings. We also pointed to Andrew Lobaczewski's work, Political Ponerology, in which he argues that systems based on impoverished views of human nature become more susceptible to takeover by psychopaths. In a similar vein, a movement in economics, begun in France at the turn of the millennium, has referred to neo-classical economics as "autistic economics." Like Lobaczewski, they choose to focus on the psychopathology of modes of thought that we take for granted, yet which contribute to the bad situation the world is in. These economists have argued for a 'post-autistic economics', one with a more fuller and more accurate view of human beings.

Having just turned 80 on August 13 and undergone major surgery for what may have been stomach cancer at the end of July, a transitional time may be near in Cuba with Fidel Castro Ruz beginning to hand over power to his brother Raul and/or others in the months ahead. It passed without irony or mention of imperial arrogance in a brief front page comment in the August 19th issue of the Wall Street Journal that the US won't invade Cuba but a "dynastic succession" is not acceptable. It would have been too much to expect the Journal to have noted that same type succession happened in the US in 2000 and 2004 and in elections exposed and documented as badly tainted at least and likely stolen at worst on top of five arrogant Supreme Court Justices refusing to allow a proper recount of the disputed vote and, in effect, annulling the voice of the people and replacing it with their choice for president. It's called "democracy, American style." It also would have been too much to expect the WSJ to challenge the language it quoted asking what right does anyone in the Bush administration have to tell another nation what type succession policy is or is not acceptable.

In March 1885, John Fiske wrote an essay for the magazine Harper's, called "Manifest Destiny", in which he contended that the so-called "English race" was destined to dominate the entire world during the coming 20th Century. Then, according to this hubristic theory, there would be a millennium of peace and prosperity. However, it is the expansionist editor John L. O'Sullivan, who in 1845 coined the famous expression when he wrote of "our manifest destiny to overspread the continent allotted by Providence for the free development of our yearly multiplying millions."
