The West must be forced to listen to our voices

The West must be forced to listen to our voices

After the American George Floyd was murdered by sadistic police, and rebellion erupted all over the world, many Americans began to defensively shout “It is not about race!”

However, take note of one thing. it is them, telling us, yet again, what it is and what it is not happening. You would never hear such statements in Africa, the Middle East, or Asia. In those areas of the world, people know perfectly well whether this is a racial issue or not!

I have just spent two weeks in the United States, analyzing the profound crises of US society. I visited Washington, D.C., Minneapolis, New York, and Boston. I spoke to many people in all those places. What I witnessed was confusion and total ignorance about the rest of the world. The United States, a country which has been brutalizing our planet for decades, is absolutely unable to see itself in the context of the entire world. People, including those from the media, are outrageously ignorant and provincial.

I asked many times: “Do black lives matter all over the world? Do they matter in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and do they matter in West Papua?” I swear, I received no coherent answer.

Somebody has to tell them… Somebody has to force them to open their eyes.

A few years ago, I was invited to Southern California to show my documentary work from Africa (my feature documentary film Rwanda Gambit, about Western-triggered genocides in both Rwanda and later in the Democratic Republic of Congo), where millions of black people are dying, in order for US whites to live in piggish opulence.

The time has come for the West to sit down, shut up and listen to the rest of the world

But before I was allowed to present, I was warned:

“Remember, people here are sensitive… Do not show too much of brutal reality, as it could disturb them…”

Hearing that, I almost left the event. Only my respect for the organizer made me stay.

Now I am convinced: it is time to force them to watch; to see the rivers of blood, which their laziness, selfishness, and greed have triggered. It is time to force them to hear the shouts of agony.

The time has come, and we “non-white” reporters from Russia, China, Latin America, and elsewhere can do it, and will. We have images and sounds. These are our people, our brothers and sisters in all parts of the world who are going through unimaginable suffering. We are beginning to expose this reality already. To hell with the sensitivity of the remote killers who are disguising themselves as fellow victims of capitalism because they have to pay student loans debts and mortgages or work two jobs! They know absolutely nothing about true horrors and real misery. One day, soon, they will be forced to see and to comprehend.

Western Intellectual Incest

For centuries, Western intellectuals, media sources, and propagandists were listening to only each other, recycling their own thoughts in a stale, incestuous way. Then they were pushing their own discourse, often forcefully, down the throats of all Africans, Asians; in short, “the Others.”

They created a horrid narrative which is predominantly bombastic, self-righteous, false, even out-rightly deceitful.

For decades, I have been writing detailed books, giving examples from all corners of the Planet, uncovering this atrocious design. The most complete of them is called Exposing Lies of the Empire and counts with over 800 pages. The second installment is coming in 2021.

At some point, by operating within extremely narrow intellectual margins, white Western culture simply ran out of ideas and out of creativity. It became impotent, self-serving, and unable to offer anything progressive and optimistic to humanity… yet it kept lecturing the world, ‘educating’ or, more precisely, brainwashing all other races and nationalities.

The world has been conditioned to believe that without the white Western seals of approval, nothing could move, or succeed, or be taken seriously.

But by now, Western, white culture has all but totally collapsed. It abruptly stopped giving birth to great writers, filmmakers, or thinkers. Asia, Russia, and even parts of Africa like Nigeria and South Africa are now producing much better authors, while Iran, China, and Argentina are giving birth to doubtlessly superior filmmakers.

Unipolar globalization is coming to its end

But it is the West that is distributing awards to its own people and foreign traitors, pretending that it still has the mandate to judge, educate and inspire the world. Its awards, as well as its diplomas, are nothing more than seals of approval given to collaborators; rewards for servitude.

By now, white Western people know very little. They are in absolute denial. They are ridiculously overrated. In fact, they are finished. They are empty, cynical, over-masturbated, and lazy. They demand all sorts of rights and privileges but know nothing about responsibilities, hard work, and enthusiasm.

White North America and Europe expect the rest of the world to be obedient, submissive, to work hard, supporting the West’s unreasonably high standards of living. This is true for their right-wing as well as for the so-called “progressives” (that is all there really is – as there are virtually no true members of the internationalist Left remaining in the Western countries).

But even the pseudo “left,” which is pathetic, defunct, and in love with being obsolete, still dares to judge and scorn those great countries in which the Communist Parties and internationalist governments are now proudly holding power!

The only reason for such grotesque arrogance is the fact that the members of the pseudo-left are white, and they come from Western countries. Which is obviously good enough (for them) to aliment their grandiloquent complexes of superiority.

The entire charade is perverse and incestous.

Of course, this monstrous arrangement will come to an end soon, very soon. We will make certain that it will.


For centuries, white Westerners were judging us, the others. They were analyzing us, telling us what to do, how to think, and how to live.

This led to absolute disaster: to genocides, plunder, and slavery; to intellectual and environmental collapses.

The bottom line is this: the White West has absolutely no right to control the world. This fact is becoming more and more obvious to everyone. It is not qualified to lead the world. There are much better political systems then the Western one, just as there are much greater cultures.

The only reason why the West is still in control of the Planet is because of its violence, brutality, and deception.

Violence can be confronted, and from now on, it will be, by Russia, Iran, China, Venezuela, and other brave countries.

The deceptions have to be challenged, too. We have our own media outlets now. We no longer have to listen to the lies that have been damaging our countries for centuries.

We have to speak. We are obliged to speak! Louder and more clearly, about our nations, about the world, and the madness of the West.

The US vs the Latin American anti-globalist front

Now, the West must be forced to listen to our voices.

Our people will not suffer in silence anymore.

In the white West, they know nothing or very little about us. However, we know a great deal, or should I say, too much about the West. We were forced to know, despite so often being presented with lies. The truth we discovered, but discovered on our own, and often the hard way.

The oppressed world is waking up. Increasingly, it demands its own people to write and to speak about our own countries, and also about the West.

We don’t care what the white West thinks about us. We don’t care anymore. More and more of us are spitting on their invitations and encouragement. We do not need their certificates and their degrees.

We don’t need their money: we have our own media outlets that are beginning to pay for hard and excellent work; in Russia, China, and elsewhere. We have our publishing houses and television stations. Our words are spread all over the internet and airwaves.

This is a new world and a big awakening.

Now we will tell them, straight to the face, about their failed fight against COVID-19 and their botched democracy. We will shame their imperialism, colonialism, empty consumerism, and endemic racism. And we will analyze their uprisings, their oppression, emotional emptiness, and braindead consumerism, using our own reporters, poets, and thinkers.

We will talk about socialism and Communism from our own perspectives, in our own way, and whenever we want to! We don’t need their permission.

We don’t need the West’s sarcastic little smiles. And we are not “white.” Even if the color of our skin is pale, we are fighting determinately alongside the oppressed nations, against the sinister ‘club’ of those who have been murdering hundreds of millions of people, as well as all enthusiasm, kindness, and hope on this Planet.

Things are changing rapidly. The Others are rising. The battle against modern-day slavery and colonialism is on.

Our message is clear: Imperialists, colonialists, settlers, and Western supremacists; shut up, stand back, and listen; as we had to listen for centuries! Your narrative is empty, and you cannot fool us anymore. We will build our own new world soon: those billions who were nothing in your world will become everything in ours.

Now we are speaking, and for the first time in modern history, there is nothing you can do about it. You will simply have to get used to the sound of our voices!
