This is a priority topic relating to deep politics.  Additions to this page are particularly welcome,
though be advised that the official narrative is particularly suspect.

Official Narrative

For the first half century since 1945, the official narrative of US Foreign Policy is dominated by the Cold War, the story of USA/USSR locked in ideological opposition. Since the end of the USSR, this conflict has been reframed as a global War On Terrorism. With a few dissenters the commercially-controlled media have worked hard to tell a story of USA as a noble defender of the poor and underprivileged.

US has carried out numerous assassinations since 1945, and since the case of Anwar Al Awlaqi continues to do so, openly, now claiming that there is nothing illegal in targeting and summary execution without a judge or jury.

Efforts to Suppress Democracy

Full article: US Efforts to Suppress Democracy since 1945

US efforts to suppress democracy are never framed as such by the commercially-controlled media. Instead, memes such as the defence of vital US interests prevail. Older methods such as funding and arming small groups are not forgotten but are mixed with newer tactics such as strategic disinformation and use of social media.
