How to Start a (Wall Street-backed) Revolution
Documentary Whitewashes Wall Street's Global Blitzkrieg
by Tony Cartalucci
November 26, 2011 - Gene Sharp of the Albert Einstein Institution penned the book "From Dictatorship to Democracy," originally designated for the destabilization and recolonization of Myanmar, still called "Burma" throughout much of the West. Sharp's book would then be utilized by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) throughout Eastern Europe, throughout Asia, and eventually, in 2011, for the US-engineered "Arab Spring."
According to Sharp's own Albert Einstein Institution (AEI) 2000-2004 annual report, AEI had been sponsored by the US government's National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and its funded subsidiary International Republican Institute (IRI) to train activists in Serbia (page 18) Zimbabwe (page 23) and Myanmar (page 26) to help overthrow their respective sovereign governments.

Australia's Southern Cross University's "Activating Human Rights & Peace (AHRP)" conference had put out a revealing account of their 2008 proceedings illustrating that all of Gene Sharp's work, beyond what was even mentioned in his own institution's annual report, had been fully funded and in support of the US government and its global domineering agenda. Beginning on page 26, Sharp's affiliations, in particular with the National Endowment for Democracy, which is described as carrying out "a lot of work that was formerly undertaken by the CIA," as well as the Ford Foundation, and billionaire Wall Street patriarch George Soros' Open Society Institute are fleshed out in immense detail.
Gene Sharp Has Defenders
Despite this, there are still voices out there calling criticism of Gene Sharp's affiliations with the US government and the CIA "wild accusations" and "conspiracy theories." One of these voices is director and Sky News/freelance journalist Ruaridh Arrow of the UK. Arrow has a lot invested in his views, as he is the director of "How to Start a Revolution" and has invested a tremendous amount of time and effort attempting to portray Sharp as anything but an agent of US-funded sedition promoting corporate-fascist global hegemony.
Photo: Ruaridh Arrow in Egypt. He is the director of "How to Make a Revolution," a disingenuous take on the "Arab Spring," which sidesteps documented evidence and even overt admissions that foreign corporate-financier interests drove the unrest, not indigenous aspirations for "democracy."
In one interview, Arrow even admits that upon seeing the Serbian Otpor revolution and the Ukrainian Orange Revolution unfold he suspected a CIA conspiracy, but then implies that the presence of Gene Sharp's book in the hands of these various groups, practicing similar tactics, was evidence otherwise. In a column afforded to Arrow by BBC titled, "Gene Sharp: Author of the nonviolent revolution rulebook," he claimed that Sharp "has faced almost constant financial hardship and wild accusations of being a CIA front organisation." Such statements are in obvious contradiction with even Sharp's own AEI annual report.
Also included in Arrow's BBC article was mention of his visit with Srdja Popvic of CANVAS, whose own website claims US government agencies such as Freedom House, United States Institute for Peace, and the International Republican Institute, as well as Soros' New Tactics (page 6) as "partners." Also mentioned as a partner was of course Sharp's AEI. Either Arrow was negligent in his research, or negligent in full disclosure as to the nature and affiliations of the groups training these "revolutionaries."
Any remaining doubt surrounding the true nature of these protests is cast aside when considering the 2008 inaugural Alliance for Youth Movements summit, sponsored by the US State Department in New York City and hosting CANVAS' future Egyptian "April 6 Youth Movement" proteges. After receiving training in New York by AYM, then training in Serbia with US-funded CANVAS, April 6 would join yet another cog in the Wall Street-London conspiracy to overthrow the Egyptian government, Mohammed ElBaradei. ElBaradei much like Gene Sharp and CANVAS has an endless parade of apologists espousing his good intentions along with a Nobel Peace Prize draped around his neck for added "credibility." In reality, ElBaradei is a member of the US corporate-funded think-tank International Crisis Group, funded in part by Soros' Open Society Institute, with Soros himself sitting on the board of trustees, along with funding from Chevron, Shell, Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank, and many others.
ElBaradei would return to Egypt a full year before the "Arab Spring" began to the open arms of April 6 activists literally waiting for him at the airport in Cairo. Together they began building the "National Front for Change." A year later, after making preparations with the help of April 6 and Wael Ghonim of Google, ElBaradei would lead what would be disingenuously portrayed by the complicit corporate-media as a "spontaneous" protest "inspired" by the equally disingenuous, entirely preplanned "revolution" that had just unseated the Tunisian government.
The "Arab Spring" is Fake
Clearly, the "revolution" in Egypt was entirely misrepresented by the corporate-media, and likewise by filmmaker Ruaridh Arrow. The "Arab Spring" was not spontaneous, nor was it indigenous. Rather it was a was a premeditated geopolitical plot engineered by US corporate-financier interests years in advance. The New York Times in its article, "U.S. Groups Helped Nurture Arab Uprisings," clearly stated as much when it reported, "a number of the groups and individuals directly involved in the revolts and reforms sweeping the region, including the April 6 Youth Movement in Egypt, the Bahrain Center for Human Rights and grass-roots activists like Entsar Qadhi, a youth leader in Yemen, received training and financing from groups like the International Republican Institute, the National Democratic Institute and Freedom House, a nonprofit human rights organization based in Washington."
Further confirming this were public statements made by the US State Department-sponsored "Alliance for Youth Movements" (AYM) counting Egypt's April 6 Youth Movement among its above mentioned inaugural AYM summit attendees in New York City as far back as 2008. Foreign Policy magazine admited that April 6 received further training from CANVAS in Serbia, before fomenting unrest in Egypt. FP magazine would also report that "CANVAS has worked with dissidents from almost every country in the Middle East; the region contains one of CANVAS's biggest successes, Lebanon, and one of its most disappointing failures, Iran."
The destabilization in Iran, of course, was drawn up by corporate-funded Brookings Institution, as articulated in its "Which Path to Persia?" report, with the actual mechanics of organizing the foreign-funded revolution subcontracted to organizations like US-funded CANVAS, NED and its subsidiaries.
In an April 2011 AFP report, Michael Posner, the assistant US Secretary of State for Human Rights and Labor, stated that the "US government has budgeted $50 million in the last two years to develop new technologies to help activists protect themselves from arrest and prosecution by authoritarian governments." The report went on to explain that the US "organized training sessions for 5,000 activists in different parts of the world. A session held in the Middle East about six weeks ago gathered activists from Tunisia, Egypt, Syria and Lebanon who returned to their countries with the aim of training their colleagues there." Posner would add, "They went back and there's a ripple effect." The ripple effect Posner is talking about is of course the "spontaneous" "Arab Spring" and bears a striking resemblance to the campaign of destabilization Gene Sharp and AEI perpetuated throughout Eastern Europe as described in detail in the above mentioned AHRP report.
Mr. Arrow Stands by His Work
In a recent exchange, Mr. Arrow brushed aside all of this evidence in favor of his emotional documentary portraying Gene Sharp as an unsung hero and aging father of a global wave of genuine "democratic revolution." He labeled the June 13, 2011 article "Fake Revolutions" as a "conspiracy theory." He insists that "his research" has brought him to "different" conclusions and stands by his work. While he agreed that Wall Street is a dictatorship, the irony apparently escaped him that his film is about Wall Street literally overrunning the planet with semi-covert revolutions from Tunisia to Thailand.
Whether it is pride, ignorance, or duplicity that drives Mr. Arrow and his wayward message, contradicted by documents emanating from the very man and his organization he set out to portray in a positive light, his documentary has been picked up, supported, and promoted by the very same willful liars that foisted the "Arab Spring" upon an unsuspecting world. On Arrow's own website, under "Special Thanks," is listed "Every Human Has Rights" a campaign of the Gates, Ford Foundation, Soros Open Society, European Commision, and UK Department for International Development (DFID)-funded CIVICUS alliance.
Also mentioned is the Stilwell Fund for the Visual Arts, founded by Kim Taipale of the World Policy Institute, funded by the Carnegie Corporation (mentioned in the above AHRP report as complicit in funding the projection of US foreign policy under the guise of "democratic revolutions") as well as the "US Connect Fund" which is a collaborative fund created by George Soros' Open Society, the Carnegie Corporation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Ploughshares Fund (a sponsor of the above mentioned International Crisis Group upon which Egyptian "Arab Spring" leader ElBareadei sits as a trustee).
Indeed - somewhere along the line, though to what extent Arrow is not forthcoming - the very organizations engineering, supporting, funding, training, and in some cases arming the "Arab Spring" conflagration consuming Northern Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia, had lent Mr. Arrow a hand in his disingenuous, whitewashing of their dirty deeds. Mr. Arrow refuses to acknowledge this glaring conflict of interest, the apparent immense impropriety his "documentary" is in the middle of, or the implications they may have on his future credibility or the future of the countries he has helped play a small part in destabilizing and ultimately destroying.
Country by Country - Wall Street is There
Below is a list of nations most of which are on record receiving Gene Sharp's "humanitarian" advice and training. Documented in depth are also the recipient opposition groups' ties directly to Wall Street-London corporate-financier interests. Indeed, Arrow's film, "How to Make a Revolution" shows one in reality of how to best serve Wall Street's interests by dividing and destroying your nation, while installing a puppet of the West's choosing amidst the chaos, because that is exactly what Gene Sharp's pupils have been doing for decades now in each and every case.
No real revolution of any kind will take place until people both understand the balance of power currently held in the world today and how to change it pragmatically rather than politically. Wall Street, a global tyranny of unprecedented proportions, will remain intact until we see them, not petty local tyrants or street hooligans and dupes as the true enemy, and the systematic boycotting and replacing of their degenerate, global domineering system implemented in full as the solution.

There are only two ways to change a regime that cannot be changed at the ballot box, and that is illegally and violently or legally and non-violently.
WN are not in a position to change regimes violently and illegally, and these ways never work out for the better.
Thus WN are only left with non-violent, legal means of changing regimes.
The article argues against using these methods, then proceeds to advocate using these exact methods via strikes, boycotts and sanctions, the most effective way of bringing down regimes. When the US invaded Iraq the first time, it killed roughly 400 000 Iraquis, lost 300 000 Us troops to DU poisoning.
The second time, they killed around 650 000 people, and so far have lost effectively 400 000 US troops and contractors as casualties mostly cancer related.
Under sanctions, they killed 2.5 million Iraquis, with no US casualties.
WN need to understand this is a brutal, harsh business.
His strategies and methods actually work, and are being used, successfully.
What has been done before, can be done again, using those very same strategies and methods. They replace regimes. They do not determine what sort of regime the replacement regime will be and unless WN are able to form replacement governments, replacement governments will not be WN governments.
They omit to mention that Gene Sharp did not invent these methods, he studied regime changes around the world, and compiled/collated what they done, analysed it and came to his conclusions. He explicitly states again and again, they are not pacifist, they are to use his words "techniques of combat". Their advantage is that they are scalable, in a way violent illegal methods are not, and that they cause less harm to those using them.
Like so many points the article artfully avoids, the article fails to mention what life was like under the governments that were overthrown.
As unpleasant as life may be in those countries today, Poland and Ukraine etc have taken off like a rocket since the previous regimes were removed.
There are two options, do we want anti-Western or pro-Western governments in place in areas that Whites depend upon for our resources and trade?
We are not the only players on the board, and if/when we come to power, we will need governments we control in place, or the Chinese, Russians, Muslims, Japanese etc will.
The crucial point the article avoids, is that these strategies and methods work, so can start being used, by us.
Nowhere do they advocate actually doing anything to remove unwanted regimes.
People have never understood the balance of power, the masses have never acted, it's always been a tiny "revolutionary majority" that changes things, the critical mass which reaches the tipping point, at which stage regime change takes place.
That they set conditions for acting that they know have never existed, and will never exist, indicates that the authors of the article, whilst pretending to be anti the current system, do not advocate doing anything, and recommend doing nothing, so are pro the current system. There are no examples in human history of governments being changed pragmatically and not politically, so they are advocating allowing the current system to continue indefinitely.
Nationalism is about establishing and strengthening countries for white people.
Replacing regimes is one of its core functions.
These are tried and tested tools that have been and are used to replace regimes, no different to Sun Tzu's Art of War, or Machiavelli's "The Prince".
Politics is not nice, and is not for nice people.
Nationalism is just about the most dangerous form of political activity there is, and methods and strategies that reduce the casualty rate on our side but still achieve the same result, are not to be sneezed at.
Like a hammer, these tools can be used to build a paradise or a prison, it all depends upon the hand that wields them. Nobody said nationalism was easy, or safe. One has only to look at the often horrific fates of the signers of the declaration of independence, or of those who have waged nationalist struggles through all of history, to see that nationalism carries an often fearful price.
Much is said of the 300 Spartans, but many people tend to forget, they did not return.
Tens of millions of nationalists died in WW 1 and 2, tens of millions more died under the Jews and communists, often horrifically.
We thus need varying methods of activity, so that people with different risk appetites can still be active.
Contrary to Hollywood, struggles are not fought by brave men striding forward. They are fought by men hidden and camouflaged, by deception, by ambush and attack from oblique angles, at the opponents weakest points, and wen they are at their most helpless. Such men who defeat those who went striding boldly forward.
To quote Bilbo and Gandalf from "the Hobbitt"
Bilbo : Can you promise that I will come back?
Gandalf : No, and if you do, you will not be the same.
Secede. Control taxbases/municipalities. Use boycotts, divestment, sanctions, strikes.
