Today’s democracy is nothing more that pseudo-authoritarian rule by an elite few, executed by legions of self-deluding freeloaders who have convinced themselves that their current bureaucratic roles are both necessary and honorable… as well as a stepping stone into the next job which will be even more necessary and honorable.
REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY ATTRACTS CORRUPT AND CORRUPTABLE PEOPLE. THIS HAS BEEN THE CASE FOR DECADES…AND IT SHOWS NO SIGNS OF CHANGING ITS SPOTS
In reality the price of political bribes these days are very cheap!!!! Its was only £5,000 to meet the then Prime Minister Tony Blair and save your company millions!!! I wonder how much it was to get the politions to agree to make the taxpayer pay for the bailout?…or was it just more blackmail?
MPs stuck in the lobbyist mire.It is 16 years since the MPs’ cash-for-questions scandal but standards in public life still fall short
It is 16 years since the Guardian uncovered cash for questions and a group of Conservative MPs prepared to go lobbying on demand; 16 years since a Sunday Times sting found too many “honour- able members” ready to put their hands in the cookie jar; 16 years since an embattled John Major set up the Committee on Standards in Public Life to make our democracy a purer, more ordered thing. And here we go again. Another sting: another stench.
Some responses were more pathetic than menacing. Margaret Moran – on her way out after the expenses debacle – offered to ring up a “girls’ gang” of MPs to push an appropriate cause. Geoff Hoon confessed wanly: “I’ve got two children at university, so I’ve got to get a job.”
The top name on this lousy list, Stephen Byers, made an ass of himself: “I’m like a cab for hire – at £5,000 a day.” Maybe the stuff about pushing Lord Adonis to go easy on National Express was merely more promotional blah – though his claims there, filmed and recorded before being hastily withdrawn, ought to be investigated
AND YET AGAIN ,TODAY ANOTHER POLITICAL STENCH. THIS TIME FROM RUPERT MURDOCH
OUR POLITIONS ARE LIARS , CROOKS , MEGALOMANIACS , THIEVES , MASS MURDERERS , PAEDOPHILES AND COMPLETELY OUT OF TOUCH WITH REALITY
BUT THE REAL PROBLEM IS THE POLITICAL SYSTEM WHICH CREATES AND ENABLES THESE DAMAGED PEOPLE TO GAIN POWER. WE LIVE IN A SYSTEM OF POWER CORRUPTS AND ABSOLUTE POWER ATTRACTS THE ABSOLUTELY CORRUPT. ITS A SYSTEM OF STATE CAPITALISM, ITS FASCISM NOT DEMOCRACY!
State capitalism has various different meanings, but is usually described as a society wherein the productive forces are controlled and directed by the state in a capitalist manner, even if such a state calls itself socialist. Corporatized state agencies and states that own controlling shares of publicly-listed firms, and thus acting as a capitalist itself, are two examples of state capitalism
OF COURSE THIS IS JUST FASCISM!!
Fascism should more appropriately be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power.
Benito Mussolini, fascist dictator of Italy (1922-1943)
ITS NOT DEMOCRATIC, ITS DICTATORSHIP! BUT POLITIONS KEEP TELLING US WE LIVE IN A DEMOCRACY ,BUT THEY ARE LIARS!!
THE POLITICAL SYSTEM WE LIVE UNDER IS CALLED “REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY”! IT IS A REPRESENTATION OF DEMOCRACY , LIKE A PICTURE IS A REPRESENTATION OF AN OBJECT ,BUT IT IS NOT THE OBJECT!!
WE LIVE IN AN ELECTED DICTATORSHIP
OUR POLITIONS ARE VETTED VIA POLITICAL PARTIES AND FINANCIALLY SUPPORTTED BY CORPORATE LOBBY CROUPS.
THEY THEN RULE BY EDICTS AND ARE BEYOND THE NORMAL RULE OF LAW.
IF YOU DO NOT LIVE IN AN ELECTED DICTATORSHIP ,YOU WILL BE ABLE TO TELL ME WHAT OTHER THINGS YOU GET TO VOTE FOR ,OTHER THAN YOUR DICTATOR!?!
YOU WILL BE ABLE TO TELL ME WHAT ACTIONS HAVE BEEN TAKEN AGAINST OUR WAR CRIMINALS FOR EXAMPLE?
YOU WILL BE ABLE TO EXPLAIN WHY THE PEOPLE ARE BEATEN AND EVEN KILLED BY THE POLICE WHEN THEY TRY TO DEMONSTRATE AND SAY “NO”!
THE POLICE ALSO LIE AND PERVERT THE COURSE OF JUSTICE BUT NO POLICE ARE EVER CHARGED
FROM TOP(POLITIONS) TO BOTTOM(POLICE) THE SYSTEM IS TOTALLY CORRUPT!! IT NEEDS TO BE REPLACED!!
THE SOLUTION IS SIMPLE ,REAL DEMOCRACY
THE REVOLUTION TODAY IS FOR TRUE DEMOCRACY….A DIRECT DEMOCRACY…….F*CK POLITICAL PARTIES ,THE PEOPLE KNOW BEST!!!
Direct democracy, classically termed pure democracy, is a form of democracy and a theory of civics in which sovereignty is lodged in the assembly of all citizens who choose to participate. Depending on the particular system, this assembly might pass executive motions, make laws, elect or dismiss officials, and conduct trials. Direct democracy stands in contrast to representative democracy, (UK, EU USA system)where sovereignty is exercised by a subset of the people, usually on the basis of election.(our subset of the people , all have the same financial backers and looby groups, and are therefore a one-party-system of elected dictatorship)
DIRECT DEMOCRACY HAS GUARANTEED SWITZERLAND THE HIGHEST LIVING STANDARDS IN EUROPE WITH THE LEAST CORRUPTION , THEY ALSO HAVE NOT BEEN AT WAR SINCE 1814!
DIRECT DEMOCRACY SAVED ICELAND FROM BECOMING DEBTOR SLAVES TO UNPROFITABLE AND CRIMINAL BANKERS. REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY HAS DOOMED EVERY OTHER EUROPEAN COUNTRY TO DEBT SLAVERY AND NATIONAL BANKRUPTCY AND ILLEGAL WARS!!
IF THERE WAS A SYSTEM DESIGNED FOR WEEDING OUT THOSE NOT FIT FOR OFFICE ,THEN REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY WOULD BE A GOOD SYSTEM FOR POINTING THESE PEOPLE OUT…..NOT FOR GIVING THEM POSITIONS OF POWER!!
AS A SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT IT IS INSANE AND MURDEROUS, ITS JUST ELECTED DICTATORSHIP AND FASCISM.
REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENTS START WARS!!
REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENTS CREATE DEBTS!!
REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENTS LIE TO THE PEOPLE!!
REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENTS PROTECT THE GUILTY!!
REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENTS BEAT THIER SUBJECTS AND THEN BLAME THE VICTIM!!
UNDER A SYSTEM OF REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT ,THE PEOPLE ARE SENT TO FIGHT (ILLEGAL) WARS , HANDED OTHER PEOPLES DEBTS TO PAY ,ARE LIED TOO AND BEATEN , WHILE THE GUILTY ARE FREE TO WALK OUR STREETS
WHAT A SH1T SYSTEM!!
WHAT TYPE OF PEOPLE BECOME “REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY POLITIONS” AKA “ELECTED DICTATORS”? SERIAL KILLERS , MEGALOMANIACS , PAEDOPHILES AND OTHER SEXUAL PREDATORS
Conspiracy of Silence: The Franklin Cover Up – Censored Documentary!
Conspiracy of Silence is a powerful, disturbing documentary revealing a U.S. child sex abuse and pedophilia ring that leads to the highest levels of government. Featuring intrepid investigator John DeCamp, a highly decorated Vietnam war veteran and 16-year Nebraska state senator, Conspiracy of Silence reveals how rogue elements at all levels of government have been involved in systematic child sex abuse and pedophilia to feed the base desires of key politicians.
Based on DeCamp’s riveting book, The Franklin Cover-up, Conspiracy of Silence begins with the shut-down of Nebraska’s Franklin Community Federal Credit Union after a raid by federal agencies in 1988 revealed that $40 million was missing. When the Nebraska legislature launched a probe into the affair, what initially looked like a financial swindle soon exploded into a startling tale of drugs, money laundering, and a nationwide child sex abuse ring. Nineteen months later, the legislative committee’s chief investigator died suddenly and violently. A dozen others linked to the Franklin case investigation died strange and mysterious deaths.
So why have you never heard of the Franklin cover-up? Originally scheduled to air in May of 1994 on the Discovery Channel, Conspiracy of Silence was yanked at the last minute due to formidable pressure applied by top politicians. Some very powerful people did not want you to watch this documentary
HERE IS THE LEGAL PROOF , A LIST OF CHILD SEX OFFENDERS IN UK GOVERNMENT
HERE IS THE SCIENTIFIC EXPLAINATION OF WHY REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY CANNOT WORK!!
Study: Politicians share personality traits with serial killers
Using his law enforcement experience and data drawn from the FBI’s behavioral analysis unit, Jim Kouri has collected a series of personality traits common to a couple of professions.
Kouri, who’s a vice president of the National Assn. of Chiefs of Police, has assembled traits such as superficial charm, an exaggerated sense of self-worth, glibness, lying, lack of remorse and manipulation of others.
These traits, Kouri points out in his analysis, are common to psychopathic serial killers.
But — and here’s the part that may spark some controversy and defensive discussion — these traits are also common to American politicians. (Maybe you already suspected.)
Yup. Violent homicide aside, our elected officials often show many of the exact same character traits as criminal nut-jobs, who run from police but not for office.
Kouri notes that these criminals are psychologically capable of committing their dirty deeds free of any concern for social, moral or legal consequences and with absolutely no remorse.
“This allows them to do what they want, whenever they want,” he wrote. “Ironically, these same traits exist in men and women who are drawn to high-profile and powerful positions in society including political officeholders.”
HERE IS MORE SCIENTIFIC PROOF!!
A study of personality types once found that as a group, serial killers scored highest in “superficial charm, an exaggerated sense of self-worth, glibness, lying, lack of remorse and manipulation of others.” The other highest-scoring group for these undesirable traits? Politicians.
Again and again science has found that being in charge not only attracts terrifying douchebags, but creates them as well. And with that, here’s the scariest article you’ll read this month:
#5.Power and Self-Absorption Go Hand in Hand
Try something for us. Write the word “ASS” on your forehead with a marker. If you refuse to do that, just picture yourself writing it, but really imagine you have the letters up there.
Science says there is a very logical reason that those in power don’t actually give a damn about you: They are too busy thinking about themselves. There are several reasons for this, according to research.
First, researchers found that in leaderless situations, those with high opinions of themselves will take charge, for better or for worse. Well, that makes sense — they think they’re awesome, so of course they think they should be in charge. The problem, though, is that this same, often unwarranted, confidence also persuades the followers to follow them. And so they climb through the ranks by basically being the biggest loudmouth braggarts in the room.
The other problem is that the narcissistic types can manage to lead effectively — for the short term. They’re great at convincing everyone they have all the answers, but at the end of the day they can’t take their eyes off their own self-interest long enough to focus on long-term goals such as “not losing all of our money.” Actually being in power only makes it worse, which brings us back to the ASS on your forehead.
When you drew the imaginary letters, where did the letter “A” wind up? On your left, so that the word reads normally if you look in a mirror? That’s how a lot of people would do it — after all, that’s the way you write things. Left to right.
But that would be making the word backward for anyone else trying to read it. If you took the time to stop and consider that, and then carefully wrote the letters and word backward so it would be readable to a person facing you, that says a lot about your outlook toward other people.
They actually did that experiment in a study at Northwestern University. They randomly assigned a group of people to hold a position of power during the study, and assigned another group to a position where they’d have no power at all. Later, they gave everyone a simple task: Draw a capital letter “E” on their own foreheads. Same as we had you do with the word ASS.
The results were startling. People in the powerful group were almost three times as likely to carelessly draw the letter so that it was unreadable to anyone else. Those in the powerless group were the ones who stopped, thought about it and turned the letter around so that others could read it.
That’s right: Even meaningless, arbitrary power, assigned purely for the experiment, was enough to make the subjects less likely to stop for a few seconds and consider the perspectives of others. Now imagine what an actual position of power would do.
Oh, we’re just getting started here.
#4.Feeling Powerful Makes It Easier to Lie
It’s estimated that the average person lies up to six times a day — it’s even considered an important developmental milestone in babies, which presumably means that nobody will accept you as a person until you figure out how to make shit up to keep yourself out of trouble. So you can imagine how much politicians and CEOs have to bullshit us on a minute-to-minute basis to get their reputations. Well, there’s a scientific reason they are the way they are.
You’d think this would be obvious — that liars tend to get into positions of power because they’re so good at lying (and science says you’re right), but there’s a much weirder factor at play.
Researchers at Columbia Business School used a similar setup to the “E” experiment above, where they did a role-play that divided subjects into leaders and subordinates. Leaders were even given a fancy, large office; the underlings got a small, windowless room. All of them were then tempted to lie (they found a $100 bill and were put in a situation where they’d have to lie about it to the people running the experiment if they wanted to keep it).
After a nice round of vigorous lying, both groups of subjects were tested for stress hormone levels. Researchers also studied a video-tape of the subjects lying their asses off. The result, in their words:
“Low-power individuals showed the expected emotional, cognitive, physiological, and behavioral signs of deception; in contrast, powerful people demonstrated no evidence of lying across emotion, cognition, physiology, or behavior.”
Once more, that’s after a couple of hours of completely fake power. These people were chosen at random, but when they were stuffed into a fancy room that made them feel like big-shots, their feelings of guilt about lying melted away.
And that made them better liars; it’s those unpleasant feelings of guilt and stress that cause the physical cues that let people know we’re lying. Add a feeling of power to the mix and the opposite happens. In fact, instead of negative emotions, the study found that a powerful person actually experiences a positive internal response. These people feel joyful relaxation as a result of lying their fucking faces off.
It’s almost as if the feeling of being in power made them think the normal rules of morality didn’t apply to them. Which leads us to …
#3.Experiments Show Power and Hypocrisy Are Linked in the Brain
This one goes a long way toward explaining the almost endemic hypocrisy of politicians and business leaders we see in the news every day. It explains why so many vehemently anti-gay politicians and religious leaders are creepy sexual deviants. It explains why banks are currently refusing to lend to anyone while giving their employees huge bonuses with bailout money. And it explains why the Senate voted itself a pay raise on the same day it refused to increase the minimum wage.
Once again, this is something that can be tested in experiments, and once more the correlation goes the opposite way you’d expect.
A Dutch researcher mixed things up this time, using five different experiments to try to instill a sense of power in people using different methods, presumably to make sure it wasn’t anything particular to a specific kind of role-playing that got the results.
In one experiment, he took random subjects and had them role-play in a fictional government, so that some would have positions of power (aka prime minister) while others would be peons, like in the previous experiment. But other groups would, for instance, be asked to vividly describe a time when they held a position of power, in an effort to get them into the same mood they experienced when they were in that role. No one involved knew what the experiment was trying to uncover.
Later the subjects were given a questionnaire with gray-area moral questions (such as, is it OK to exceed the speed limit if you’re late for an appointment).
After just that brief period of feeling powerful, the role-playing prime ministers were more ready than the peons to say they would bend the rules if they needed to. But when asked other hypothetical questions that tested whether they thought it was OK for other people to skirt the rules, the prime ministers were harder on the rule-benders than the peons.
No matter how the researcher went about instilling the feelings of power, the results were the same: Within minutes, a feeling of power flips a switch in the brain that says, “The rules now do not apply to me. BRING ME A WHORE.”
But even stranger, the people induced to feel powerless went the opposite way — they actually were more self-critical than they’d normally be. Think about what that says about society: The people who are already powerless, as a result feel like they’re less worthy to be in power and thus stay powerless.
#2.Power Gives You a False Belief in Your Abilities
We know the powerful are risk-takers. It comes with confidence, and that feeling that you can make the world bend to your will is the key ingredient in everything from politics to military strategy to playing NFL quarterback.
But as it turns out, it works the other way, too. Put us in a position of power, and our perception of our abilities leaves all logic and reason behind.
This next study happened at Stanford University. The setup was similar to the hypocrisy experiment, in that researchers got the subjects into a powerful mood by having them write about a situation where they had power over another person. Then there were two control groups: One wrote about a time they felt powerless, and another wrote nothing and probably just made doodles of dongs on their notebooks. Again, these people were assigned to the powerful and powerless groups at random. It had nothing to do with their station in life or how much power they actually had in the real world.
Then the researchers made them an offer: They could roll some dice, and if they correctly guessed their roll, they’d get cash. But they had the choice of either rolling the dice themselves or letting someone else roll for them. The choice was nonsense — dice is not a game of skill. That’s the point of dice.
If there’s some guy who’s really good at making dice land a certain way, he’d be at a craps table now putting a casino out of business. Yet, while both the less-powerful and the control group gave up the responsibility 30 to 40 percent of the time, a full 100 percent of the empowered subjects chose to roll themselves. Drunk on their little scrap of completely fake power, they assumed they could control a completely random outcome better than someone else. All because a guy in a lab coat tricked them into feeling powerful.
But it doesn’t end there. Another study found that people with power see the world more positively and are therefore more likely to take risks based on the pure blind faith that things always work out for them because they’re awesome. If you’re keeping track, this basically means that people in charge see the world as a gumdrop palace in which they have superpowers.
Are you starting to see a theme here? It’s like even minor feelings of power trick you into thinking you’re a part of some other, superior species of human.
So with that in mind …
#1.Feelings of Power Trigger a Lack of Compassion
In theory, politicians in the age of democracy should feel almost too much compassion. They spend oceans of money and time getting elected to posts that exist solely for the continued well-being of the people they serve. They hold town hall meetings to listen to their constituents, and they risk their political futures trying to pass laws for the good of their people.
A study in an issue of Psychological Science set out to test this idea. The method was a little different, as instead of a role-playing exercise, the researchers actually surveyed subjects about how powerful they felt in their own lives. Then they were divided into powerful and powerless based on their answers.
The subjects were then paired up, and one was told to relay an emotionally scarring event that had happened to him. The listener was hooked up to an ECG machine, and all of his stress responses were measured.
The powerless people reacted the way you’d expect people would react when told a heart-wrenching tale. The powerful, on the other hand, felt nothing. Or at least, their responses couldn’t be measured, whether they naturally felt no empathy or were just better at regulating their emotions.
The researchers had all of the subjects fill out a survey at the end and inquired about whether they’d like to stay in touch with the other experiment subjects after the experiment was over, to see if maybe they’d made any friends during this ordeal. The powerless subjects were into it. The powerful were not. They wanted nothing more to do with the stranger they’d just traded personal stories with.
This seems to indicate what we had always suspected — that while politicians may pander to you by kissing your baby, they might as well be kissing a can of Beanee Weenees. The guy who stole your wallet at the laundromat will probably remember your name longer than they will.
THAT IS WHY POLITIONS HAVE NO SHAME! EVEN WHEN THEY HAVE BEEN FOOLED AND EVERYBODY ELSE KNOWS IT, THESE DELUDED MEGALOMANIACS THINK THEY ARE VISIONARYS AND HAVE SEEN WHAT THE REST OF US HAVE MISSED!!…WHEN IN FACT THEY ARE THE LAST PEOPLE TO HAVE FIGURED OUT WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON!!!
Aren’t members of parliament amazing? Suddenly they all have noticed that the Murdoch influence is a cancer in society, which is something the rest of us have known for 30 years. Equally suddenly they have noticed that Andy Hayman is a lying buffoon, whereas before they took him as a great bastion against terrorism whose every word must be treated with respect(AND OUR CIVIL LIBERTIES CURTAILED BY POLITIONS). This blog and other blogs have been telling them he was a lying buffoon for years, most indisputably over the appalling lies he spread in the media about Jean Charles De Menezes.(PERVERTING THE COURSE OF JUSTICE ,AIDING AND ABETTING A MURDER, LYING UNDER OATH,…WHY IS HE NOT IN JAIL?)

REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT IS THE BIGGEST THREAT TO YOUR LIFE EXPECTENCY AND YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE!!!
THE REAL THREAT TO OUR WAY OF LIFE …REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY GOVERNMENT!! EVEN THE POLICE INTELIGENCE EXPERTS AGREE ON THIS!!
Police Intelligence Analyst Fired For Saying 9/11 And 7/7 Look Like Inside Jobs
UK Police Intel Expert: Government, Not Islam, Real Terror Threat
By Nick Kollerstrom
July 12, 2011
Tony Farrell had been employed for twelve years as ‘Principle Intelligence Analyst’ for South Yorkshire Police, 13th largest of the 44 police forces in the UK.
His job involved producing a yearly ‘Strategic Threat Assessment Matrix’ to determine how the police force had to prioritise its activities.
Assessed ‘threats’ ranged from ASBOs (anti-social behaviour orders) to the terrorist threat allegedly presented by Islamic extremists. Having a statistics degree, it was his job to translate the different ‘strategic threats’ into a ‘matrix’ of relative numerical weighted probabilities.
In 2010, one week before the 5th anniversary of 7/7, Tony (who had never previously doubted government versions of events) stumbled across ‘9/11 Truth’ material on the web. Like so many millions before him, he was shocked to the core by this experience.
He quickly realized that there was a great mass of evidence relating to 9/11 kept hidden by the mainstream media. As a Christian, Tony consulted his church minister, who suggested that he consider, whether the same might be true for the London 7/7 bombings?
Something he had not suspected ‘in his wildest dreams’ then started to unfold. After reading much of the available but publicly-unreported witness statements and other evidence relating to 7/7, Tony found that he could only conclude that the official 7/7 narrative was ‘a monstrous lie.’
Instead of the official ‘suicide bombers’ narrative, which he and all of his colleagues had believed without question, he realised that the weight of evidence strongly points far more towards 7/7 being an event stage-managed by British intelligence than anything else.
The unthinkable but inescapable question thus intruded: Does there exist an ‘internal tyranny’ worse than any external foe?
All the assumptions he had held about the ‘strategic threat’ from terrorism were shattered and lay in ruins, and he found himself now doubting the size of any threat allegedly coming from Al-Qaeda and home-grown extremists.
Within the police service, he felt horribly alone not knowing who to talk to about this matter – a situation made acute because he would have to present his annual threat assessment to the ‘Intelligence Strategic Management Board’ on July 8th – mere days away.
From his Christian perspective 9/11 and 7/7 could only now be perceived as expressions of a Satanic dimension concerning the ascent of what everybody was calling a ‘New World Order’. He saw these deceitful events as false-flag operations perpetrated in order to justify illegal and wicked wars. This was a deep personal crisis – one that would terminate his career.
On July 6th he ‘stuck his head above the parapet’ by alerting his boss – that he was developing a very different conceptual model of the strategic threat.
The terse document he handed over, suggested that the untruth of the 9/11 story implied ‘a huge potential for a total breakdown in trust between the government and the masses’ and it warned of ‘a tipping-point’ that would surely arrive as it slowly dawned upon citizens that their own government had conspired against them and had lied to them and had murdered innocents in the process.
Likewise he warned that, if indeed 7/7 had been ‘deliberately engineered’ to justify British PM Tony Blair standing shoulder to shoulder with Bush in the illegal was in Iraq, ‘There will be total outrage within the masses and a complete breakdown of trust between the Government and the people of the UK.’
In the presence of two intelligence managers, he alerted the Detective Superintendent, the Director of Intelligence for the South Yorkshire Police, explaining that all of his work used open-source material – he was not violating ‘official secrets’. He alluded to secret societies and a Masonic influence as being very central.
The Director of Intelligence distanced the other two managers and they held a one-to-one conversation. The biggest single threat to the UK, Tony Farrell explained to him, was now coming from internal tyranny and in his opinion ‘far exceeded’ any threat from Islamic terrorism. ‘Tony, you and I will never get them to tell the truth’, came the philosophical reply, ‘- we are mere foot-soldiers of the government.’
That indeed was sensible advice, from someone who cared for his welfare – but, something more important was stirring within Tony Farrell: the voice of his conscience, and that would not permit him to go along with the ‘monstrous lie’.
His seniors, seemingly concerned for his well-being expressed a wish for Tony to visit Occupational Health. This irked him, as he felt and indeed was in perfectly good health.
On July 7th 2010, his first line manager, a Detective Chief Inspector spent a good part of the day with him trying to steer him into keeping to the original plan and to avoid rocking the boat. Could they not achieve some sort of compromise – then he could take his three weeks’ leave?
To comply with that, he would have had turn a blind eye to his own assessment and deliberately hand over misleading analysis. His ‘strategic’ models were looking promising according to his line manager – yet he could not set aside his new views about ‘internal tyranny.’
As a seemingly lone voice in his police force, Tony Farrell found himself wrestling in the ‘Valley of Decision’ at home that evening, a theme he found expressed in the Book of Joel, Chapter 3. He also pondered the 9th Commandment, ‘Thou shalt not bear false witness.’ He experienced an epic struggle going on that seemed to him to resemble that described in the Book of Ephesians, Chapter 6.
So that evening, 5 years to the day from the London bombings, he reached his own momentous personal decision. He resolved to take a stand knowing it would probably lead to him being sacked.
On July 8th he handed over a very short version of the ‘Strategic Assessment Matrix,’ which averred that the real terrorist ‘threat’ to society was almost entirely of the state-sponsored kind, and it alluded to both 9/11 and 7/7 in this context. Other threats from other ‘domains of criminality’ were, his brief report claimed, ‘insignificant’ by comparison.
This was hardly following the National Intelligence Model guidance, relating to ‘Threat and Risk Assessment models’ that he was supposed to use. ‘Tony we can’t do business like this,’ his manager pleaded.
He was asked to create a personal report: how had he arrived as such an unheard-of view? His privileges were withdrawn and his computer accessed, but as he had done his investigation at home and with open-source material, nothing untoward was found.
And so he was absent from the board meeting that afternoon, even though it was anticipating the yearly presentation from him. Instead he was sent home to compile a report, explaining his stance. He offered to produce a full report with backup evidence, for his shocking new views, but that wasn’t required.
Sacked for his beliefs
His work ‘could be helpful to the police service’ the DI remarked cryptically. Everything had happened so quickly, much too quickly. Tony Farrell was summoned to a hearing chaired by the Director of Finance a member of the Senior Command Team on 2nd September 2010.
He was told that he held beliefs that were ‘incompatible’ with his position. There was no allegation of any misconduct. In dismissing him, the Director of Finance said this: “It is a very sad occasion as you have done some excellent work for South Yorkshire Police and I have never been involved in a situation like today. Your beliefs are very sincere and you may be right, but it is I’m afraid incompatible at the moment with where we are.”
He took the matter to the South Yorkshire Police Authority Appeal’s Committee but his case was dismissed. He has since put the case into an Employment Tribunal where final hearings are scheduled to be held in early September 2011 in Sheffield.
This will be a public event, and it is likely that South Yorkshire Police will feel embarrassed by the repercussions. This case has potentially far-reaching implications.
Tony Farrell gave an interview with Richard Hall on Sky TV released on July 8, 2011 (used as the main source for this article) and also that same day a 10-minute interview was broadcast on a Bristol local radio; synchronously enough, South Yorkshire’s Chief Constable announced his retirement on that same day 8th July – after nine years’ of service. Was this indicating some stress within the Force? The whole story focuses by odd coincidences upon anniversary-dates of the London bombings, over the last couple of years.
IN REALITY REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY GOVERNMENTS HAVE AN ENDLESS LIST OF WAR CRIMES AND OPPRESSION AND DESTROY TRUE DEMOCRACY WHERE EVER IT RISES!
The modern military system is just a meat grinder that destroys those that would genuinely risk thier lives to keep us safe , as well as protecting those that threaten our well being .It increases terrorism and the heroin trade and is used as global ,taxpayer funded , corporate muscle.It makes us LESS SAFE and bankrupts the nation. The solution is a MILITIA ARMY MODEL!!
WHY DO YOU THINK NO POLITION WOULD EVER MENTION A “DIRECT DEMOCRACY” POLITICAL SYSTEM SOLUTION?
BECAUSE DIRECT DEMOCRAY ARRESTS THE GUILTY!! THIS WOULD MEAN MOST OF OUR POLITIONS WOULD BE IN JAIL!!
The Icelandic referendum, the voice of the people against the blackmailing power of the international financial elites might now have become precedent for other countries in similar situations.
What the bankers seem to fear above all things is a direct democracy in financial matters.
And no doubt that´s quite a reasonable fear, for such a democracy would lead to more and more people getting informed about financial matters and the money-creation process itself.
The knowledge about this process coupled with the instruments of a direct democracy would lead eventually and without any doubt to a monetary reform and a loss of power for the international bankers.
REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY PROTECTS THE GUILTY!! THAT IS WHY ARE GOVERNMENYS ARE COMPLETELY CORRUPT!!
THE POLITIONS ARE PURELY FOR POPULATION CONTROL AND USE OR ARE USED BY THE FOURTH ESTATE…THE FREE PRESS IS NOT FREE….ASK RUPERT MURDOCH HE PAID A LOT OF MONEY FOR IT!! RUPERT MURDOCH HAS HIS OWN AGENDA AND MAKES SURE THE “REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRATIC POLITIONS” FOLLOW HIS AGENDA AND NOT THE PEOPLES AGENDA!!
THIS IS TREASON!!
THE ONLY QUESTION . ARE OUR REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRATIC POLITIONS TRAITORS OR BLACKMAILED?!
Who is Rupert Murdoch?
Phone hacking scandal is ‘all about Rupert Murdoch’
Revealed: Cameron’s 26 meetings in 15 months with Murdoch chiefs
By Oliver Wright and Nigel Morris
Saturday, 16 July 2011
The scale of private links between David Cameron and News International was exposed for the first time last night, with the Prime Minister shown to have met Rupert Murdoch’s executives on no fewer than 26 occasions in just over a year since he entered Downing Street.
Rebekah Brooks, who resigned yesterday as chief executive of Mr Murdoch’s Wapping titles over the escalating scandal, is the only person Mr Cameron has invited twice to Chequers, a privilege not extended even to the most senior members of his Cabinet. James Murdoch, News Corp’s chairmanin Europe and the man responsible for pushing through the BSkyB bid, was a guest at the Prime Minister’s official country residence eight months ago. And the former NOTW editor Andy Coulson – who was arrested this week in connection with police corruption and phone hacking – was invited by Mr Cameron to spend a private weekend at Chequers as recently as March
Mr Cameron has held more than twice the number of meetings with Murdoch executives as he has with any other media organisation. There were two “social” meetings between Mr Cameron and Ms Brooks, one of which was also attended by James Murdoch, and in return they invited the Prime Minister to a succession of parties.
The Sunday Times, part of the News International stable of course, reported that five MPs have earned more that £200,000 since last year’s general election, from outside interests and on top of their Westminster salaries.
Which means of course that they are all effectively part-time Members of Parliament whose outside interests are being subsidised by the public purse
Gordon Brown actually tops the list having been paid £588,560 for giving speeeches, writing a book and serving as a ‘global leader in residence’ at New York University. Good luck to him I say, but why doesn’t he just resign his seat as a Fife MP and pursue these other business interests on a full-time basis?
Other high earners include Stephen Phillips – the Tory MP for Sleaford and North Hykeham who became a QC two years ago – and earned £331,190 for his legal work over the past year.
Several other notable Tories include Malcolm Rifkind (£212,939), Nicholas Soames (£208,769), Tony Baldry (£203,664) and John Redwood (£181,627).
Not far behind from the Labour party were former ministers David Blunkett (£180,480) and David Miliband (£158,980).
So well done the Sunday Times for showing that not all journalists are hackers, liars and criminals.
BUT POLITIONS GET EVEN MORE MONEY FROM LOBBYISTS
Pro-Israel groups, food processing companies, and the oil and gas industry increased their lobbying expenditures the most (as a percentage) between 2007 and 2008.The Center calculates that interest groups spent $17.4 million on lobbying for every day Congress was in session in 2008, or $32,523 per legislator per day
The pharmaceutical/health products industry contributed $230.9 million, raising their last eleven-year total to over $1.6 billion.

The term Israel lobby in the United Kingdom (also called the Zionist lobby) is a term used to describe the loose coalition of groups and individuals who attempt to influence British foreign policy in support of Israel and its policies. Many decisions made in the Houses of Parliament are made as a direct result of lobbying by parliamentary colleagues, constituents or outside pressure groups
Labour Friends of Israel is a UK Parliament-based lobby group promoting support within the British Labour Party for a strong bilateral relationship between Britain and Israel.Jonathan Mendelsohn the former chairman of the LFI was quoted in the Jerusalem Post saying “Zionism is pervasive in New Labour.It is automatic that Blair will come to Labour Friends of Israel meetings.”
Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI) is a parliamentary group founded by the late Conservative MP for Bury and Radcliffe, Michael Fidler and currently chaired by Stuart Polak. The CFI states its main aim is to strengthen business, cultural and political ties between the UK and Israel.Between 2006 and 2009, the CFI paid for more than 30 Conservative parliamentary candidates to visit Israel . A Nov 2009 Dispatches documentary claimed that now around 80% of Conservative MPs are members of the CFI and described them as “beyond doubt the most well- connected and probably the best funded of all Westminster lobbying groups”.
Liberal Democrat Friends of Israel is a group whose stated objective is to ‘maximise support for the State of Israel within the British Liberal Democrat Party’, and to ‘promote policies which lead to peace and security for Israel within a Middle East peace settlement’
European Friends of Israel (EFI) is a European lobby organization for Israel. It was established in September 2006, where 300 MEPs and national MPs took part in an opening ceremony.The “European Friends of Israel” (EFI) organization was established in 2006, by European parliamentarians, with the mission of “forging a stronger political relationship and a deeper understanding between Europe and Israel.”
SO EUROPE AND THE UK GOVERNMENTS HAVE BEEN SPENDING THIER EFFORTS ON OIL AND ISRAEL.. THE PEOPLE WILL JUST HAVE TO SUFFER AND MAKE DO!!
OUR POLITICAL TRAITORS WILL NOT TOUCH THIER FOREIGN MASTERS AND THIER FOREIGN POLITICAL AGENDAS…THEY ARE NOTHING MORE THAN TRAITORS
Last week we watched with satisfaction as media mogul and Zionist flag-waver Rupert Murdoch’s stranglehold on the political scene in Britain came unglued after revelations of hacking into a murdered schoolgirl’s voicemail and other dirty tricks. But it wasn’t the “Establishment” or the police that taught Murdoch a much-needed lesson: it was a disgusted civil society whose anger eventually brought down the weight of the law and Parliament on the offenders’ heads.
Politicians, from prime ministers down, wet their pants at the thought of how much damage Murdoch’s gutter-sniping newspapers could do to them if they didn’t bow and scrape to the over-mighty News Corporation. The News of the World, we were told so many times, had the power to make of break political careers.
That was only true, of course, if the politicians in question were weak and susceptible to pressure – and those are not the sort of politicians we want anyway. Blair and Cameron were at Murdoch’s beck and call and socialized with his odious executives, including the scary Rebekah Brooks. Neither had the balls to curb the illegal practices
It finally came down to this. Who were our spineless politicians more scared of: the furious public or “Dirty Digger” Murdoch? Clearly, the British people need to show their outrage more often.
Blair at first impressed by being a “Flash Harry” but in reality was so young, stupid and unprincipled that he became an acute embarrassment, bringing shame on Britain. Cameron is similarly “flash” and continually has to make desperate U-turns to reverse half-baked policies.
As with Blair, he’s a warmonger eager to make an impression on the back of someone else’s blood and shredded body parts. Prime Minister Cameron recently launched an extraordinary attack on “moaning” military chiefs who had dared to openly question the length of the war in Libya. In a public slap-down he told top brass: “You do the fighting and I’ll do the talking.” He added: “I’m absolutely confident that we can keep this pressure up. We can maintain this mission for as long as necessary. Time is on our side.” Arrogant pup, they probably thought.
Indeed. Those were the ill-considered words of a leader whose country is financially broke – and went broke while Cameron and his Conservative buddies were the official opposition charged with the duty of holding the governments of Blair and Brown to account.
It’s this bad. Britain’s foreign policy remains perfectly aligned with the demands of Israel and its protector, the United States. Long-time friends and admirers of the Israeli regime, such as William Hague and Alistair Burt, are hand-picked to make sure we do not stray from the pro-Israel path no matter how diabolically criminal that regime’s conduct or how offensive the agenda of these Israeli-firsters to ordinary decent British citizens.
CAMERON ,LIKE HAGUE IS A TRAITOR TO BRITAIN
Even Prime Minister Cameron has pledged: “In me, you have a prime minister whose belief in Israel is indestructible… I want to be clear, we will always support Israel…” One’s blood runs cold. Is Cameron paid and sworn to represent a foreign military power? It’s not such a silly question as it sounds.
The Foreign Office still refuses to say whether it will protect British subjects and other peaceful nationals from the threat of lethal force by Israel in its attempt to maintain an illegal blockade on Gaza. Instead, our ministers effectively endorse the blockade by advising against all travel to the Gaza Strip.
As for Iran, the UK has banned more than 80 Iranians from visiting, including scientists and engineers connected with the Iranian nuclear programme, government ministers, members of the judiciary, prison officials and others “who have committed serious human rights abuses”. Says Foreign Secretary Hague:
“The message to the Iranian government from the UK and its partners is clear: it needs to change its behaviour before it will be treated as a normal member of the international community.”
Has Hague banned any Israelis linked to war crimes, human rights abuses and nuclear arms proliferation? Perish the thought. They are not required to “change their behaviour” in the least. They are welcomed with open arms.
Our politicians, in the main, are already Zionist stooges like their American counterparts. Our enforcement agencies are so weakened or dysfunctional and some leading figures are so out of control and doing so much damage that there may soon be no way of reining them in. We are losing control fast and we’ll find it difficult to take back our country without organizing serious insurrection.
Churchill, a Zionist sympathizer of the old-fashioned kind, confronted many dire threats but could not have foreseen, in his day, how the tentacles of Zionism would envelop the civilized world. But there’s no excuse for today’s leaders when the truth is so brazenly ugly. That they embrace it and even change our laws to accommodate it, underlines their utter unsuitability for high office.
We stood up to Hitler. Is no-one incorruptible enough to stand against the Zionist menace?
REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY POLITIONS ,NOT JUST LIARS AND TRAITORS ,BUT COMMON THIEVES AS WELL
POLITIONS STOLE OUR SOCIAL SECURITY FUND ,OUR PENSION PAYMENTS THAT SHOULD OF BEEN GATHERING INTEREST UNTIL OUR RETIREMENT, IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE 187 BILLION IN SURPLUS BY NOW!!! THE LYING CORRUPT POLITIONS SPENT IT AND CLAIMED THEY BALANCED THE BUDGET(OR IN THE CASE OF THE UK ,CLAIMED THE DEBT WAS NOT AS BAD AS IT SEEMED) THEY NOW TRY AND BLAME THE STOCK MARKET CRASH FOR OUR STOLEN PENSION FUNDS!!BUT THE MONEY WAS ALREADY SPENT BEFORE THE STOCK MARKET CRASH ! SO POLITIONS ARE THEVIES AND LIARS!!
HERE IS THE PROOF!!
The following excerpt is from the 1998 Senate Budget Committee session
HOLLINGS: I’m not asking what you’re trying to create. The simple fact is the debt has been going up at least $100 billion for the last several years.
GREENSPAN: Outside, on budget, that is correct.
HOLLINGS: That’s right, on budget, you’re spending a hundred billion more than you’re taking in.
HOLLINGS: And this president’s budget spends another hundred billion more than we take in.
GREENSPAN: I haven’t seen it yet.
HOLLINGS: You haven’t seen it? You’re testifying about it now.
GREENSPAN: I haven’t seen the budget. You haven’t seen it either.
HOLLINGS: Well, you know his plan. Look you think he’s going to spend less than a hundred billion more?
GREENSPAN: I will wait to see what the numbers look like.
HOLLINGS: Well, the truth is…ah, shoot, well, we all know there’s Washington’s math problem. Alan Sloan in this past week’s Newsweek says he spends 150%.
What we’ve been doing, Mr. Chairman, in all reality, is taken a hundred billion out of the Social Security Trust Fund, transferring it over to the spending column, and spending it. Our friends to the left here are getting their tax cuts, we getting our spending increases, and hollering surplus, surplus, and balanced budget, and balanced budget plans when we continue to spend a hundred billion more than we take in.
That’s the reality, and I think that you and I, working the same side of the street now, can have a little bit of success by bringing to everybody’s attention this is all intended surplus. In other words, when we passed the Greenspan Commission Report, the Greenspan Commission Report only had Social Security in 1983 a two hundred million surplus. It’s projected to have this year a 117 million surplus. I’ve got the schedule, I’ll ask to put in the record the CBO report: 117, 126, 130, 100, going right through to 2008 over the ten year period of 186 billion surplus. That was intended; this is dramatic about all these retirees, the baby boomers. But we foresaw that baby boomer problem, we planned against that baby boomer problem. Our problem is we’ve been spending that particular reserve, that set-aside that you testify to that is so necessary. That’s what I’m trying to get this government back to reality, if we can do that
BUT THAT IS NOT ALL. WHAT ABOUT THE LOST MONEY FROM SECRETIVE MILITARY PROJECTS, 2.3 TRILLION DOLLARS WENT MISSING AND THIS WAS ANNOUNCED ON SEPT 10TH 2001…… I THINK ON SEPT 11TH 2001 WE FOUND OUT WHERE SOME OF THE THE MONEY HAD BEEN SPENT
Lost But Not Found: $2.3 Trillion Still Missing At Pentagon
Many Americans would have forgotten that $2.3 TRILLION went missing in corrupt military spending. That’s alot of money conveniently buried in the news of the following day which was September 11th 20012,300,000,000,000 is 2.3 trillion. Just remember that one stack of hundreds or $10,000 would change the lives of almost all of us. A hundred of those stacks is a million. Put them in a brief case. Let’s put a thousand briefcases in a van. That’s a billion. Now? let’s put that thousand vans on a ship. Now a ship is a trillion. There we go, now we can see 2.3 trillion is over two and a quarter ships full of hundreds
BUT THE POLTIONS PENSION IS GUARANTEED BY THE TAXPAYER AND ITS A BIT MORE THAN THE AVERAGE STATE PENSION
Scottish civil servants million-pound pension funds revealed More than £500 million of taxpayers’ money is being spent every year on pensions for Scottish ministers and civil servants, with some enjoying million-pound retirement pots.
BUT BECAUSE OF ALL THE BANKER BAILOUTS ,GOVERNMENT THEFT ,ILLEGAL WARS FOR CORPORATIONS,GOVERNMENT ADMINISTRATIVE AND BEAUROCRACY COSTS ,THERE IS NO MONEY LEFT FOR GENERAL PUBLIC HEALTH AND EDUCATION.
THE GOVERNMENT SOLUTION ,KILL YOURSELF WHEN YOUR USEFULNESS IS OVER!!!
THIS ARTICLE IS JAW DROPPINGLY DISGUSTING.
Death and Budgets
By DAVID BROOKS
Published: July 14, 2011
I hope you had the chance to read and reread Dudley Clendinen’s splendid essay, “The Good Short Life,” in The Times’s Sunday Review section. Clendinen is dying of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or A.L.S. If he uses all the available medical technology, it will leave him, in a few years’ time, “a conscious but motionless, mute, withered, incontinent mummy of my former self.”
Instead of choosing that long, dehumanizing, expensive course, Clendinen has decided to face death as one of life’s “most absorbing thrills and challenges.”
But it’s also valuable as a backdrop to the current budget mess. This fiscal crisis is about many things, but one of them is our inability to face death — our willingness to spend our nation into bankruptcy to extend life for a few more sickly months.
The fiscal crisis is driven largely by health care costs. We have the illusion that in spending so much on health care we are radically improving the quality of our lives.
DAVID BROOKS YOU AREA FILTHY DISGUSTING PRESSTITUTE!!
CAN I POINT OUT THAT HEALTH CARE IN THE USA IS A PRIVATELY FUNDED ENTERPRISE AND THE AMERICANS SPEND THE HIGHEST AMOUNT PER HEAD AND GET THE LEAST AMOUNT IN RETURN COMPARED TO OTHER COUNTRIES!!
CUBA HAS A BETTER HEATH CARE SYSTEM THAN AMERICA!! IT IS ALSO NOT ASKING ITS CITIZENS TO DIE FOR ITS POLITICAL MASTERS!!
SO DAVID BROOKS AND HIS POLITICAL AND CORPORATE MASTERS ARE ASKING YOU TO KEEP FINANCIALLY SUPPORTTING PRIVATE ENTERPRISE AND THEN COMMIT SUICIDE IF YOU GET SERIOUSLY ILL!!IT WILL HELP THE ECONOMY AND PRIVATE ENTERPRISE!!
MIGHT I SUGGEST THAT DAVID BROOKS AND HIS POLITICAL AND CORPORATE MASTERS ARE WELL PAST THIER USEFULNESS AND ITS TIME FOR THEM TO DO THE DECENT THING AND COMMIT SUICIDE!!WORDS FAIL ME TO DESCRIBE THE CONTEMPT AND DISGUST I FEEL FOR THIS HUMAN PIECE OF EXCREMENT
(IMHO THEY NEVER WHERE USEFUL IN THE FIRST PLACE)
I USED TO THINK POLITIONS WHERE USELESS UNTIL I REALISED THAT THEY ARE BIO-DEGRADABLE!!!
THE SIMPLE POLITICAL SOLUTION SHOULD BE
FOR THOSE WITH BELOW AVERAGE INTELIGENCE , PEOPLE LIKE POLITIONS OR BANKERS, HERE IS THE EXPLAINATION OF WHAT WENT WRONG…IT HAS HAPPENED BEFORE
THE SOLUTION IS ALSO VERY SIMPLE …JUST DECLARE THE DEBT “ODIOUS” AND WE ARE ALL DEBT FREE! IT IS AN ODIOUS DEBT, THE PEOPLE NEVER AGREED TO THIS!!!
In international law, odious debt is a legal theory which holds that the national debt incurred by a regime for purposes that do not serve the best interests of the nation, should not be enforceable. Such debts are thus considered by this doctrine to be personal debts of the regime that incurred them and not debts of the state
THE RECORD OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE IS A RECORD OF TOTAL FAILURE,…ITS A COLLECTION OF THE CORRUPT AND THE DELUSIONAL ….IT TOO SHOULD BE CLOSED DOWN AND AUDITTED!!
“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” -Woodrow Wilson, after signing the Federal Reserve into existence
From 1776 to 1912 (136 years), the value of the dollar, relative to the Consumer Price Index, increased by 11%. A dollar could buy 11% more goods in 1912 than in 1776. Thus, if in 1776, you sat on your savings pile of $1,000,000 for 136 years, it would then be worth $1,110,000 in purchasing power (it will have appreciated in value by 11%). After the Fed’s creation, from 1913 to 2008 (95 years), the value of the dollar, relative to the Consumer Price Index, decreased by 95%. A dollar could buy 95% fewer goods in 2008 than in 1913. Thus, if in 1913, you sat on your savings pile of $1,000,000 for 95 years, it would then be worth only $50,000 inpurchasing power (it will have depreciated in value by 95%)
WESTERN BANKER ARE JUST AS DELUDED AS WESTERN POLITIONS, AND IN REALITY THEY ARE JUST AS USELESS AND INFACT ARE DESTRUCTIVE TO A MODERN CIVILISED SOCIETY! THEY ARE SO DELUDED THEY BELIEVE THEY ARE DOING “GOD’S WORK”!!
I’m doing ‘God’s work’. Meet Mr Goldman Sachs
The Sunday Times gains unprecedented access to the world’s most powerful, and most secretive, investment bank
THEY ARE ALSO SO STUPID ,THEY CANNOT FIGURE OUT WHY THIER BANKS ARE COMPLETELY UNPROFITABLE………ITS THE BONUS MYTH STUPID!!
The bonus pay paradox
Yet as our feature shows, paying for results doesn’t always boost performance. In fact it can make it worse.
The problem runs far deeper than the practical difficulties of measuring performance and the ill will that such schemes can create. Contrary to what economists believe, offering rewards, particularly in jobs that people do for love as well as money, can actually undermine the motivation of workers.
“Economists and workplace consultants regard it as almost unquestioned dogma that people are motivated by rewards, so they don’t feel the need to test this” …”It has the status more of religious truth than scientific hypothesis”
Cash bonuses contributed to the financial crash,because traders had little motivation to ensure thier companies long term survival.
Stock-option bonues where blamed for the collapse of Enron and other corporate scandals.
“In many cases the top executives simply lied and cheated to make the stock price go up so they got huge bonuses” Edward Deci ,University of Rochester ,New York state.
Most bonus schemes are poorly designed says Malcolm Higgs of the School of Management at the University of Southhampton in the UK.
BUT THE BANKERS ARE STILL TOO STUPID TO FIGURE THIS OUT!!
HERE IS AN EXPLAINATION OF THE CAPITALIST SYSTEM FOR STUPID ,UNPROFITABLE AND IRRESPONSIBLE BANKERS
HERE IS HOW CAPITALISM IS SUPPOSED TO WORK……ITS DOES HELP IF YOU HAVE SOME CAPITAL ,AND NOT DEBT , IT IS ALSO USEFULL TO MAKE PROFIT BEFORE AWARDING A BONUS!
1.Availability of credit allows money to flow between savers and borrowers.
2.Resources and funds are allocated to various projects or investments during a boom phase.
3.Eventually borrowing becomes excessive and leads to malinvestment,
4.At this stage, adherence to free market theory would allow for an efficient cleansing period and a healthy recovery period. How? Irresponsible and unprofitable businesses fail. Bad debts get liquidated. Excess resources go on sale, flow into more stable ventures and pool together with more profitable resources controlled by healthy corporations or entities
NEWSFLASH , UK ,USA,EU BANKS FOUND TO BE UNPROFITABLE AND IRRESPONSIBLE . THEREFORE YOU GET ASSET STRIPPED AND REPLACED BY RESPONSIBLE AND PROFITABLE BUSINESS MODELS!!
SO GET YOU F8CKING THIEVING HANDS OUT OF MY POCKET YOU USELESS BANKER!! …AND GO FIND A PROFITABLE AND CONSTRUCTIVE JOB…….MAYBE A STREET SWEEPER AS YOU ARE USED TO HANDLING LARGE AMOUNTS OF WORTHLESS JUNK!!
WE DO NOT NEED POLTIONS AT ALL! THEY TOO ARE A TOTAL FAILURE!! YOU TOO NEED TO GET YOUR THIEVING F*CKING HANDS OUT OF MY POCKET!!
BELGIUM HAS BEEN WITHOUT A GOVERNMENT FOR OVER A YEAR NOW AND IS DOING VERY WELL INDEED,BETTER THAN THE REST OF US!! THEY EVEN MANAGED TO RUN THE EU FOR US …ALL WITHOUT A BELGIUM GOVERNMENT
THE BELGIUM PEOPLE HAVE BEEN PARTYING IN THE STREETS AND ARE CURRENTLY DISCUSSING A SWISS MODEL OF DIRECT DEMOCRACY AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT FOR BELGIUM
WE SHOULD DO THE SAME!!!!
PROTEST AND SURVIVE…DIRECT DEMOCRACY TODAY!!
PEOPLE PLEASE WAKE UP TO THE VERY REAL COST OF REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY GOVERNMENT!! IT IS A HUGE COST IN BLOOD ,SUFFERING AND WEALTH
ITS TIME TO END THIS MUDEROUS MUPPET SHOW!!
We must try and break this chain of endless “social engineers” ,it only leads to failure. You cannot fit a logirythm on a biorythm ,it will ultimately kill the biorythm, or, if you will,within each system lies its own demise. Human beings are a finite piece of infinite possibility. There is no single person capable of imagining all of humanity’s possibilities, nevermind control them!!
Government and social engineering is a futile task that leads to the “system” turning and feeding on the very people it was designed to protect!
LIBERTARIANISM IS THE ANSWER
NOT ”FREE MARKET” libertarianism which is just economic authoritarianism and a modern American invention!It should actually be called Any Rand “Objectivism”. These “objectivists” stole the libertarian label! This “unthought out”, “psuedo-intellectual”, ”already tried” ,philosophy takes us back to the days of swapping glass beads for real estate!! This was why government was demaded in the first place.Its just Adam Smith “laisse faire free market capitalism” re-packaged. This is what created the Robber Barons of the industrial revolution and the Privateers that sailed the seas looting and enslaving, they became the Lords in the House of Lords! They enslaved the masses in factory sweat shop conditions as they owned the resourses!
YOU CANNOT SELL YOU RESOURSES AND EXPECT TO REMAIN FREE ……”LIBERTARIAN” OR NOT…….. D’OH…. ALEX JONES AND RON PAUL I’M TALKING TO YOU!!
“All government, of course, is against liberty. The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. Most people want security in this world, not liberty.”
“The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out… without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, intolerable. It doesn’t take a majority to make a rebellion; it takes only a few determined leaders and a sound cause.”
“Whether the mask is labeled Fascism, Democracy, or Dictatorship or the Proletariat, our great adversary remains the Apparatus-the bureaucracy, the police, the military…. No matter what the circumstances, the worst betrayal will always be to subordinate ourselves to this Apparatus, and to trample underfoot, in its service, all human values in ourselves and in others.”– The French worker philosopher Simone Weil,1945
Law is stagnation , Conformity is death by boredom and ignorance ,Obedience is for slaves and Specialisation is for insects!
