Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Way to miss the point. (And my knowledge of historical movements happens to be fine - but thanks for asking.)

I'm not saying that international organisation has never existed, or that it was never effective.

I'm saying that Sharp's organisation dresses up in progressive clothes in order to fool progressives that it has a progressive agenda - when in reality it's another an agent of expedient realpolitik for the US, and the people Sharp is associated with would literally do anything to kill genuine independent progressive movements. Just as they've been doing for the past fifty years in the Middle East, South America, and in the West.

If you can find evidence that Sharp, Einstein Inc Inst etc have been sponsoring and supporting (e.g.) anti-globalisation efforts, climate change protest, or promoters of economic democracy with the same funded enthusiasm that made them the patron saints of revolutionary Egyptians everywhere, you might have a case.

But that's really not very likely, is it?
