Democracy Murdered By Protest — Ukraine Falls To Intrigue and violence

by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts,

Who’s in charge? Certainly not the bought-and-paid-for-moderates that Washington and the EU hoped to install as the new government of Ukraine. The agreement that the Washington and EU supported opposition concluded with President Yanukovich to end the crisis did not last an hour. Even the former boxing champion, Vitaly Klitschko, who was riding high as an opposition leader until a few hours ago has been booed by the rioters and shoved aside. The newly appointed president by what is perhaps an irrelevant parliament, Oleksandr Turchynov, has no support base among those who overthrew the government. As the BBC reports, “like all of the mainstream opposition politicians, Mr. Turchynov is not entirely trusted or respected by the protesters in Kiev’s Independence Square.”

In western Ukraine the only organized and armed force is the ultra-nationalist Right Sector. From the way this group’s leaders speak, they assume that they are in charge. One of the group’s leaders, Aleksandr Muzychko, has pledged to fight against “Jews and Russians until I die.” Asserting the Right Sector’s authority over the situation, Muzychko declared that now that the democratically elected government has been overthrown, “there will be order and discipline” or “Right Sector squads will shoot the bastards on the spot.”

    I love Dr Roberts but I really get pissed when people claim the Mafia Dictatorship style of government in the world today is Democracy. We don’t live in a Democracy, Ukrainians don’t live in a Democracy there isn’t a single group of people in the world who live in a true Democracy. When your government dictates to you the laws, tax rates etc there is a word to describe that system it is called a Dictatorship. The root of the word Dictator is the word Dictate which our government does to us every fucking day.
