Disinfo: Global capitalism strives to destroy nations and states and to establish a world government

Summary

Capitalism today is an international system that kills nations. Capitalism today – which is global and globalising –  openly strives to destroy nations and states and to establish a world government as the supreme power and controller of national governments.  This is not a conspiracy theory. This is liberalism’s international relations strategy. International relations handbooks clearly state that the goal of liberals in international relations is to create a world government.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory. This is a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative that seeks to discredit Western liberal-democratic societies by claiming that capitalism, liberalism, “globalism” and/or “global élites” rob nations of their sovereignty and identity, and seek to establish a “world government”. The idea of a “Shadow World Government” in itself is also a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative.

It is not true that capitalism or liberalism seek to “destroy nations and states” and to create a “world government”. Capitalism and economic globalisation increase economic interdependence among nations but do not engender the loss of national sovereignty nor do they lead to the destruction of nation-states and the creation of a “world government”. The role of the nation-state has actually increased in recent years and this trend has become more pronounced in times of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is also not true, as the video suggests, that liberal theories of international relations espouse the idea of a “world government”. These theories stress the benefits of economic interdependence among states, as well as the positive role of international institutions (such as the UN) in enhancing cooperation and reducing violent conflict among states. These theories do not propose the dissolution of nation-states nor the creation of a world government.

See a similar case claiming that Western governments are deliberately exaggerating the COVID-19 pandemic to strengthen global capitalism and to accelerate the creation of a world government.

Navalny was “poisoned” at the right time: the blatant provocation put the issue of Nord Stream 2 on the agenda

The United States is helping to split Europe

The blatant provocation with the “poisoning” of Alexei Navalny, as expected, put the issue of completing the construction of Nord Stream 2 on the agenda. Opponents of the pipeline immediately took advantage of the dubious pretext to disrupt the project.

So Navalny was “poisoned” at the right time.

Disproof

This article advances recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the poisoning of opposition leader Alexei Navalny and the alleged harmful influence of the US on European politics.

Тhe article casts doubts on Navalny's poisoning and, at the same time, claims that the US uses this incident to stop the Nord Stream 2 pipeline and split Europe.

The Three Seas Initiative is an American project against the European Union

No one outside Warsaw sees the success of the Three Seas Initiative – the Polish authorities present this “fantasy” project as if it already existed. There is one interesting sentence in the recent article of a new Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs Zbigniew Rau – he states that the Three Seas Initiative, this American project for Europe, is limited to the countries of the European Union. This statement is important as so far, Poland has claimed to be the Ambassador of non-EU countries – Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova, Belarus, etc. (what was in line with the American recommendations). Suddenly, [in the case of the Three Seas Initiative], Poland limits itself within the EU countries – in this situation, it becomes clear that the Three Seas Initiative is an American project against the European Union.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the  US presence in Europe.

The Three Seas Initiative is a forum of 12 countries from Central and Eastern Europe launched in 2015. The main goal of this Initiative is to promote better connectivity among the Member States, with a particular focus on infrastructure and energy. The main projects discussed at the forums of the Three Seas Initiative are the Via CarpathiaBaltic-Adriatic CorridorVia BalticaRail Baltica and the LNG infrastructure in Poland and Croatia.

The only inspiration for the Polish foreign policy are the phone calls from the US Embassy

The only inspiration for the Polish foreign policy is the orders from Washington, and more precisely – the phone calls from the US Ambassador Mosbacher. As long as this situation continues, the Polish diplomacy will not need any true inspiration.

Disproof

A common pro-Kremlin narrative on “lost sovereignty”, Poland and the US presence in Europe.

The statement that the US authorities and the US Embassy in Warsaw have a decisive impact on the formation of the foreign policy of Poland is a conspiracy theory. Poland is an independent state, which shapes its own foreign and domestic policies. Read more about the key aspects of the Polish foreign policy here.
