Today’s servant of power is:
Most egregious lie:
I’m a humanitarian hawk.
What she truly is is an opportunistic vulture.
Samantha Power’s sinister mentality is no different from those intellectuals that supported British rule over India for liberal/progressive, “humanitarian” reasons.
Power loves capitalizing on genocide and human suffering. She uses genocide not only as a convenient subject to garner money, book deals, and prizes for herself, she also gets to cozy up to the right people stemming from her willingness to manipulate the truth.
Power is riddled with hypocrisy and self-contradiction.
Power states it doesn’t matter whether a state has genuinely good intentions or not. In my opinion, this is a flagrantly outrageous assertion and even the most basic, human common sense knows that there will be nothing but disastrous consequences stemming from such lazy and backwards rationale. On top of this, history has provided us irrefutable proof of the brazen fallacy of this type of justification for imperialistic intervention time and time again.
In her Pulitzer Prize winning book, Power basically ignores every genocide America has contributed to and only discusses those atrocities outside of stark American influence.
She then uses this as a tactic to try to convince the rest of humanity that, as always, America and the West need to intervene more rather than learning to hold themselves back and stop contributing to the multiple accounts of human rights abuse they are already responsible for. Power is so convenient for any state because she is willing to give justification for shameless state and military intervention;- the likes of which are concerned with little more than trying to further economic affluence for the right people and gain hegemony over coveted resources.
Clearly, Power is driven by nothing but deeply malicious self-interest that is willing to put the lives of countless millions in jeopardy to bolster her own career, status and personal comfort. By her own logic, there is nothing wrong with the rest of humanity viewing her in that light.
