Top 40 Censored Stories from 2012-2013

January 4, 2014

Here is my version of Project Censored’s Top 25 censord news stories
The presentation of this year’s Top 25(My top 40)  stories extends the tradition originated by Professor Carl Jensen and his Sonoma State students in 1976, while reflecting how the expansion of the Project to include affiliate faculty and students from campuses across the country and around the world—initiated several years ago as outgoing director Peter Phillips passed the reins to current director Mickey Huff—has made the Project even more diverse and robust. During this year’s cycle, Project Censored reviewed 233 Validated Independent News stories (VINs) representing the collective efforts of 219 college students and 56 professors from 18 college and university campuses that participate in our affiliate program and 13 additional community evaluators.

40. Evidence Points to Guantánamo Dryboarding

In June 2006, three Guantánamo prisoners were found dead in their cells, hanging from what appeared to be makeshift nooses. Although the Department of Defense declared the deaths suicides, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) inquiry found evidence inconsistent with suicide—including the fact that the prisoners’ hands were bound behind their backs. The NCIS evidence suggests that the prisoners died from lethal interrogations that included dryboarding, a technique using controlled suffocation.

39. Alabama Farmers Look to Replace Migrants with Prisoners  

Alabama’s expansive anti-immigrant law, HB56, has been so economically devastating that farmers in the state sought legislation to force hard labor on prison inmates eligible for work release programs, to “help farms fill the gap and find sufficient labor.” The state’s Department of Corrections opposed the legislation, noting that its approximately 2,000 prisoners eligible for work release already have jobs, and that “the prison system isn’t the solution to worker shortages caused by the law.”

38. US Covers up Afghan Massacre  

Although the March 2012 massacre of sixteen unarmed Afghan civilians, nine of whom were children, received a great deal of news coverage, independent news sources have focused on whether one US solider acting alone—as US officials have insisted—or multiple US soldiers—as Afghan witnesses and Afghan President Hamid Karzai contend—bear direct responsibility for the killings. These reports highlight the fundamental responsibility of US high military command, including President Obama, for the crimes committed by its troops.

37. Wachovia Bank Laundered Money for Latin American Drug Cartels

Between 2004 and 2007, Wachovia Bank handled funds totaling $378.4 billion for Mexican currency-exchange houses acting on behalf of drug cartels. The transactions amount to the largest violation of the Bank Secrecy Act, an anti-money-laundering law, in US history. This case is not exceptional; Wachovia is just one of several US and European banks that drug cartels have used to launder money.

36 New York Police Plant Drugs on Innocent People to Meet Arrest Quotas

A host of stories document how the New York Police Department operates outside the very laws it is charged with enforcing. In October 2011, a former NYPD narcotics detective testified that he regularly saw police plant drugs on innocent people as a way to meet arrest quotas. The NYPD’s controversial “stop and frisk” program has invested seventy-five million dollars to arrest suspects for possessing minimal amounts of marijuana. Each arrest costs approximately $1,000 to $2,000. Although NYPD use of unlawful restraints and disproportionate force to arrest peaceful Occupy protesters has received some news coverage, police brutality directed against people of color continues to go underreported.

35. Students Crushed By One Trillion Dollars in Student Loans

In April 2012, US student loan debt topped one trillion dollars, more than credit card debt. Although corporate media dutifully reported this milestone, they underplayed its significance and ignored one promising solution. Student loan debt is the only form of consumer loan debt that has increased substantially since 2008. The threat of massive student loan defaults requiring another taxpayer bailout is a systemic risk as serious as the bank failures that brought the US economy to the brink of collapse in 2008.   http://www.projectcensored.org/17-students-crushed-by-one-trillion-dollars-in-student-loans/

34. Sexual Violence against Women Soldiers on the Rise and under Wraps

The 2005 death of US Army Private LaVena Johnson, officially ruled suicide by the Department of Defense, in fact exemplifies the sexual violence that female soldiers encounter while serving their country. Johnson’s autopsy revealed wounds inconsistent with suicide, including chemical burns that many believe were intended to destroy DNA evidence of rape. The Pentagon has tried to intimidate reporters and editors working on stories about Johnson. Johnson’s case is among at least twenty where female soldiers have died under suspicious circumstances. The mysterious deaths coincide with an increase in sexual violence against women in the military. According to the Department of Defense, in 2010, there were 3,158 total reports of sexual assault in the military. The DOD estimates that this number represents only 13.5 percent of the actual assaults, making the total number of military rapes and sexual assaults in excess of 19,000 for the year.

33. US Joins Forces with al-Qaeda in Syria

The US, Britain, France, and some conservative Arab allies have funded and armed the Syrian rebellion from its start in 2011. In fact, the US has been funding groups against Bashar al-Assad since the mid-1990s. However, the anti-Assad ranks include members of al-Qaeda, Hamas, and other groups that the United States lists as terrorist organizations.

32. Members of Congress Grow Wealthier Despite Recession

The net worth of the members of Congress continues to rise regardless of the economic recession. An analysis of financial disclosure forms by Roll Call magazine, using the minimum valuation of assets, showed that members of the House and Senate in 2010 had a collective net worth of $2.04 billion, a $390 million increase from the $1.65 billion held in 2008. Disclosure forms do not include non-income-producing assets.

31. Prison Slavery in Today’s USA

The US comprises less than 5 percent of the world’s population, yet US prisons hold more than 25 percent of all people imprisoned globally. Many of these prisoners labor at twenty-three cents per hour, or similar wages, in federal prisons contracted by the Bureau of Prisons’ UNICOR, a quasi-public, for-profit corporation, which is the US government’s thirty-ninth largest contractor. As incarceration rates explode in the US, thousands are placed in solitary confinement, often for having committed minor disciplinary infractions within prison.

30. NATO War Crimes in Libya

Although the rationale of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) for entry into Libyan conflict invoked humanitarian principles, the results have proven far from humane. In July 2011, NATO aircraft bombed Libya’s main water supply facility, which provided water to approximately 70 percent of the nation’s population. And, in a failed attempt to appear unbiased and objective, the BBC has revealed, almost a year after the information was relayed by independent media, that British Special Forces played a key role in steering and supervising Libya’s “freedom fighters” to victory.

29. First Federal Reserve Audit Reveals Trillions Loaned to Major Banks

An audit of the First Federal Reserve reveals sixteen trillion dollars in secret bailouts to major American and European banks during the height of the global financial crisis, from 2007 to 2010. Morgan Stanley received up to $107.3 billion, Citigroup took $99.5 billion, and Bank of America $91.4 billion, according to data obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests, months of litigation, and an act of Congress.

28. FBI Agents Responsible for Majority of Terrorist Plots in the United States

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has embarked on an unusual approach to ensure that the United States is secure from future terrorist attacks. The agency has developed a network of nearly 15,000 spies to infiltrate various communities in an attempt to uncover terrorist plots. However, these moles are actually assisting and encouraging people to commit crimes. Many informants receive cash rewards of up to $100,000 per case.

27. Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Worse than Anticipated

Developing evidence from a number of independent sources suggests that the negative consequences of the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster are far greater than first acknowledged or understood. An estimated 14,000 excess deaths in the United States are linked to the radioactive fallout in Japan, according to a December 2011 report published in the International Journal of Health Services. Meanwhile, the Environmental Protection Agency’s radiation-detection network (RadNet) has serious drawbacks, including a lack of maintenance and equipment that is often improperly calibrated.

26. 2012: The International Year of Cooperatives

The United Nations named 2012 as the International Year of Cooperatives. According to the UN, nearly one billion people worldwide are co-op member-owners, and the co-op is expected to be the world’s fastest growing business model by 2025. Worker-owned cooperatives provide for equitable distribution of wealth and genuine connection to the workplace, two key components of a sustainable economy.

25. Israel Gave Birth Control to Ethiopian Immigrants Without Their Consent  

In January 2013, Israel acknowledged that medical authorities have been giving Ethiopian immigrants long-term birth-control injections, often without their knowledge or consent. The Israeli government had previously denied the charges, which were first brought to light by investigative reporter Gal Gabbay in a December 8, 2012, broadcast of Israeli Educational Television’s news program, Vacuum. In January, the Israeli Health Ministry’s director-general, Ron Gamzu, ordered all gynecologists to stop administering the drugs

Palestinian Women Prisoners Shackled during Childbirth

Female Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons are treated inhumanely and often denied medical care, and legal representation, and are forced to live in squalid conditions. The conditions and violations faced by women in Israeli jails need to be addressed from a gender perspective, according to CEDAW, the United Nation’s Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women

24. Widespread GMO Contamination: Did Monsanto Plant GMOs Before USDA Approval?  

Monsanto introduced genetically modified alfalfa in 2003—a full two years before it was  deregulated, according to recently released evidence. Global Research reported that a letter from Cal/West Seeds indicated that “evidence of contamination was withheld and the USDA turned a blind eye to proof of contamination,” thus allowing widespread GMO contamination of GMO-free crops. The Cal/West Seeds letter to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) stated they found the Roundup Ready gene in foundation production lots seeds in 2005: according to the letter, the GMO-contaminated foundation seed originated in 2003 from a field in Solano County, California. The letter stated, “Cal/West Seeds had zero access to Roundup Ready seed at that time; therefore we assume the contamination originated from an external source.”

23. Transaction Tax Helps Civilize Wall Street and Lower the National Debt

 In February 2013, United States senators Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) and Peter DeFazio (D-Oregon) introduced a bill to implement a new tax of three basis points (that is, three pennies for every hundred dollars) on most nonconsumer stock trades. If made law, the tax could generate $350 billion in federal revenues over the next ten years.  Describing the proposed tax as a “simple matter of fairness and fiscal sanity,” Senator Harkin elaborated, “We need the new revenue generated by this tax in order to reduce deficits (after sequestration) and maintain critical investments in education, infrastructure, and job creation. . . . Wall Street (investors) can easily bear this modest tax.”

22. Pennsylvania Law Gags Doctors to Protect Big Oil’s “Proprietary Secrets”  

In communities affected by hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” people understand that this process of drilling for natural gases puts the environment and their health at risk. In February 2013, legislators in Pennsylvania—a state on the forefront of a national debate over fracking—passed a law that requires oil companies to disclose the identity and amount of chemicals used in fracking fluids to health professionals who request the information so that they can diagnosis or treat patients who may have been exposed to hazardous chemicals. However, as Kate Sheppard reported for Mother Jones, a provision in the new bill requires those health professionals to sign a confidentiality agreement stating that they will not disclose that information to anyone else—not even their own patients. The companies deem the chemical ingredients used in the process as “proprietary secrets.”

21. Monsanto and India’s “Suicide Economy”  

Monsanto has a long history of contamination and cover-up. In India, another Monsanto cover-up is ongoing. Since 1995, nearly 300,000 Indian farmers have committed suicide due to massive debt. Monsanto has argued that these suicides have no single cause. However, there is clear evidence that Monsanto’s Bt cotton is implicated. Physicist and author Vandana Shiva has been monitoring what is going on in these rural farming towns. Shiva noted, “The price per kilogram of cotton seeds [has gone] from 7 to 17,000 rupees. . . . Monsanto sells its GMO seeds on fraudulent claims of yields of 1,500 kg/year when farmers harvest 300–400 kg/year on an average.” Shiva and other critics have concluded that Monsanto’s profit-driven policies have led to a “suicide economy” in India.

20. Israel Counted Minimum Calorie Needs in Gaza Blockade

Declassified documents reveal that the Israeli military calculated how many calories a typical Gazan would need to survive, in order to determine how much food to supply the Gaza Strip during Israel’s 2007–2010 blockade. The Israeli human rights group Gisha, which campaigns against Israel’s Gaza blockade, fought a legal battle to force the Israeli Ministry of Defense to release the documents.  Israel began its blockade in September 2007, identifying Gaza as a “hostile territory” that had been “seized” by Hamas. Israel claimed that the blockade was necessary to weaken Hamas. Critics accused the Israeli government of targeting Gaza’s more than 1.5 million people in its failed effort to overthrow Hamas.

19. The Power of Peaceful Revolution in Iceland  

Iceland is experiencing one of the greatest economic comebacks of all time, reported Alex Pietrowski.  After privatization of the nation’s banking sector, completed in 2000, private bankers borrowed $120 billion (ten times the size of Iceland’s economy), creating a huge economic bubble that doubled housing prices and made a small percentage of the country’s population exceedingly wealthy. When the bubble burst, the bankers left the nation on the verge of bankruptcy and its citizens with an unpayable debt.  In October 2008, Iceland’s people took to the streets in response to the economic crisis caused by the banksters. Over a span of five months, the main bank of Iceland was nationalized, government officials were forced to resign, the old government was liquidated, and a new government was established. By March 2010, Iceland’s people voted to deny payment of the 3,500 million debt created by the bankers, and about 200 high-level executives and bankers responsible for the economic crisis in the country were either arrested or faced criminal charges

18. Fracking Our Food Supply

The effects of hydraulic fracturing (or “fracking”) on food supply and the environment are slowly emerging. The fracking process runs contrary to safe sustainable food production. In the agriculturally and energy-rich region called the Marcellus Shale, a tug-of-war between food producers and energy companies has begun.  Chemicals used in the fracking process contaminate surrounding land, water, and air. Ranchers in Pennsylvania, North Dakota, Louisiana, and New Mexico have been reporting health problems and incidents of dead and tainted livestock, due to elevated levels of contaminants from nearby wells.

17. The Creative Commons Celebrates Ten Years of Sharing and Cultural Creation

Creative Commons (CC) is celebrating ten years of helping writers, artists, technologists, and other creators share their knowledge and creativity with the world. CC provides free, public, and standardized licenses that allow creators to share their material with others and help create a balance between the open nature of public domain (e.g., the Internet) and copyright laws. The first CC licenses were issued in December 2002, and they now number in the millions. For example, governments and libraries make their information available to the public using CC tools. YouTube now has over four million videos available under Creative Commons, allowing everyone to use, remix, and edit them.  A strong push for copyright reform is currently occurring around the world—coming both from the increased recognition of public/user rights as well as the need for author protection. Creative Commons and the free culture movement envision a new world in which partnership premised on shared benefits replaces the false battle between self-interest and community

16. Journalism Under Attack Around the Globe

The world is a more dangerous place for journalists. Journalists are increasingly at risk of being killed or imprisoned for doing their jobs, a situation that imperils press freedom. From 2011 to 2012, the number of journalists behind bars because of their work increased from 53 to 232, and the 70 journalists killed in the line of duty during 2012 represents a 43 percent increase, compared with 2011, according to a study by the Committee to Project Journalists (CPJ). Over the past two decades, a journalist is killed once every eight days.  Dave Lindorff, of ThisCantBeHappening!, writes that “the incidence of journalists killed by US forces in recent US conflicts has been much, much greater than it ever was in earlier wars, such as the one in Vietnam, or in Korea or World War II,” begging the question of whether some of the deaths have been “deliberate, perhaps with the intent of keeping journalists in line.”

15. Food Riots: The New Normal?

Reduced land productivity, combined with elevated oil costs and population growth, threaten a systemic, global food crisis. Citing findings from a study by Paul and Anne Ehrlich, published by the Royal Society, Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed identified the links among intensifying economic inequality, debt, climate change, and fossil fuel dependency to conclude that a global food crisis is now “undeniable.”

14. Wireless Technology a Looming Health Crisis

As a multitude of hazardous wireless technologies are deployed in homes, schools, and workplaces, government officials and industry representatives continue to insist on their safety despite growing evidence to the contrary. Extensive deployment of “smart grid” technology hastens this looming health crisis.

http://www.projectcensored.org/14-wireless-technology-looming-health-crisis/

Dangers of Everyday Technology

Recent research raises compelling concerns about two commonplace technologies, cellular phones and microwave ovens. Heavy, long-term exposure to cell phone radiation increases risks for certain types of cancer, including leukemia, and in males impairs sperm production. Prenatal exposure to cell phone radiation has been shown to produce blood-brain barrier leakage, and brain, liver, and eye damage. The microwave radiation that heats food also creates free radicals that can become carcinogenic, while the consumption of microwaved foods is associated with short-term decreases in white blood cells. The Food and Drug Administration has yet to recognize studies that indicate microwave ovens alter foods’ nutritional structure, and, as with the dangers of cell phone use, most studies indicating minimal or no health risks are, in fact, industry-sponsored.

13. A Fifth of Americans Go Hungry

An August 2012 Gallup poll showed that 18.2 percent of Americans lacked sufficient money for needed food at least once over the previous year. To make matters worse, the worst drought in half a century impacted 80 percent of agricultural lands in the country, increasing food prices. Despite this, in 2012, Congress considered cutting support for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)— the official name of its food stamp program—as part of the 2013 Farm Bill.

12. The US Has Left Iraq with an Epidemic of Cancers and Birth Defects

High levels of lead, mercury, and depleted uranium are believed to be causing birth defects, miscarriages, and cancer for people living in the Iraqi cities of Basra and Fallujah. Researchers have claimed that the United States bombings of Basra and Fallujah are to blame for this rapidly increasing health crisis.  A recent study showed more than 50 percent of babies born in Fallujah have a birth defect, while one in six pregnancies ends in a miscarriage.  Military officials continue to dodge questions about the attacks, and about use of depleted uranium in particular, while maintaining silence about the health crisis. Instead, the US government has dismissed the reports as controversial and baseless.

11. Bush Blocked Iran Nuclear Deal

According to a former top Iranian negotiator, Seyed Hossein Mousavian, in 2005 Iran offered a deal to the United States, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom that would have made it impossible for Iran to build nuclear weapons. At that time, Iran did not have the capability to fabricate fuel rods. The offer included the plan to ship its uranium to an “agreed upon country” for enrichment in exchange for yellowcake, the raw material used to make fuel rods. Once uranium is fabricated into fuel rods, it is practically impossible to reconvert for military purposes. As Gareth Porter reports for Consortium News, Mousavian’s account makes it clear that President George W. Bush’s administration “refused to countenance any Iranian enrichment capability, regardless of the circumstances.”  The French and German governments were prepared at the time to discuss the offer and open up negotiations, but the UK vetoed the proposal at the insistence of the United States. “They were ready to compromise but the US was an obstacle,” Mousavian reported in his 2012 memoir, The Iranian Nuclear Crisis.

10. A “Culture of Cruelty” along Mexico–US Border

Migrants crossing the Mexico–US border not only face dangers posed by an unforgiving desert but also abuse at the hands of the US Border Patrol. During their journey through the desert, migrants risk dehydration, starvation, exhaustion, and the possibility of being threatened and robbed. Unfortunately, the dangers continue if they come in contact with the Border Patrol. In “A Culture of Cruelty,” the organization No More Deaths revealed human rights violations by the US Border Patrol including limiting or denying migrants water and food, verbal and physical abuse, and failing to provide necessary medical attention. Female migrants face additional violations including sexual abuse, according to No More Deaths. As Erika L. Sánchez reported, “Dehumanization of immigrants is actually part of the Border Patrol’s institutional culture. Instances of misconduct are not aberrations, but common practice.” The Border Patrol has denied any wrongdoing and has not been held responsible for these abuses.

9. Icelanders Vote to Include Commons(Natural Resources) in Their Constitution

In October 2012, Icelanders voted in an advisory referendum regarding six proposed policy changes to the nation’s 1944 Constitution. In response to the question, “In the new Constitution, do you want natural resources that are not privately owned to be declared national property?,” Iceland’s citizens responded with a decisive “yes.” Eighty-one percent of those voting supported the commons proposal.  The constitutional reforms are a direct response to the nation’s 2008 financial crash, when Iceland’s unregulated banks borrowed more than the country’s gross domestic product from international wholesale money markets. As Jessica Conrad of On the Commons reported, “It is clear that citizens are beginning to recognize the value of what they share together over the perceived wealth created by the market economy.”  After the October vote, Prime Minister Jóhanna Sigurðardóttir said, “The people have put the parliament on probation.”

8. Bank Interests Inflate Global Prices by 35 to 40 Percent

A stunning 35 to 40 percent of everything we buy goes to interest. As Ellen Brown reported, “That helps explain how wealth is systematically transferred from Main Street to Wall Street.” In her report, Brown cited the work of Margrit Kennedy, PhD, whose research in Germany documents interest charges ranging from 12 percent for garbage collection, to 38 percent for drinking water, and 77 percent for rent in public housing.  Kennedy found that the bottom 80 percent pay the hidden interest charges that the top 10 percent collect, making interest a strongly regressive tax that the poor pay to the rich.  Drawing on Kennedy’s data, Brown estimated that if we had a financial system that returned the interest collected from the public directly to the public, 35 percent could be lopped off the price of everything we buy.  To this end, she has advocated direct reimbursement. According to Brown, “We could do it by turning the banks into public utilities and their profits into public assets. Profits would return to the public, either reducing taxes or increasing the availability of public services and infrastructure.”

7. Merchants of Death and Nuclear Weapons

The Physicians for Social Responsibility released a study estimating that one billion people—one-seventh of the human race—could starve over the decade following a single nuclear detonation  The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) released its 180-page study showing that nuclear-armed nations spend over $100 billion each year assembling new warheads, modernizing old ones, and building ballistic missiles, bombers, and submarines to launch them. The US still has about 2,500 nuclear weapons deployed and 2,600 more as backup. Washington and Moscow account for 90 percent of all nuclear weapons. Despite a White House pledge to seek a world without nuclear weapons, the 2011 federal budget for nuclear weapons research and development exceeded $7 billion and could (if the Obama administration has its way) exceed $8 billion per year by the end of this decade.  Nuclear-armed nations spend over $100 billion each year on weapons programs. The institutions most heavily involved in financing nuclear arms makers include Bank of America, BlackRock, and JPMorgan Chase in the United States; BNP Paribas in France; Allianz and Deutsche Bank in Germany; Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group in Japan; Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria (BBVA) and Banco Santander in Spain; Credit Suisse and UBS in Switzerland; and Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds, and Royal Bank of Scotland in Britain.

6. Billionaires’ Rising Wealth Intensifies Poverty and Inequality

As a direct result of existing financial policies, the world’s one hundred richest people grew to be $241 billion richer in 2012. This makes them collectively worth $1.9 trillion, just slightly less than the United Kingdom’s total economic output.  A few of the policies responsible for this occurrence are the reduction of tax rates and tax enforcement, the privatization of public assets, wage controls and the destruction of collective bargaining. These same policies that are building up the richest people are causing colossal hardships to the rest of the world’s population.  George Monbiot has attributed this situation to neoliberal policies, which produce economic outcomes contrary to those predicted, and even promised, by advocates of neoliberal policy and laissez faire markets  Wage inequality and unemployment have both skyrocketed, making the economy increasingly unstable with monumental amounts of debt. Monbiot observed, “The complete failure of this world-scale experiment is no impediment to its repetition. This has nothing to do with economics. It has everything to do with power.”

5.Antigovernment Groups on Rise across US

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which monitors hate groups and antigovernment groups, released a report showing that 1,360 radical, antigovernment “patriot” groups and 321 militias actively operate within the United States. Released in March 2013, these statistics show an 813 percent rise in the number of such groups since 2008, with increasing numbers each year.

4. Obama’s War on Whistleblowers

Despite rhetoric to the contrary, the Obama administration is targeting government whistleblowers, having invoked the otherwise dormant Espionage Act of 1917 seven times. The Obama justice department has also used the Intelligence Identities Protection Act to obtain a conviction against Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) whistleblower John Kiriakou for exposing the waterboarding of prisoners, ironically making Kiriakou the first CIA official to be sentenced to prison in connection with the torture program. The justice department charged former National Security Agency senior executive Thomas Drake with espionage for exposing hundreds of millions of dollars of waste.  The highly visible prosecution of Bradley Manning has become what some may argue to be the most effective deterrent for government whistleblowers. Manning admitted to leaking troves of classified documents to WikiLeaks, but pleaded not guilty on counts of espionage.

3. Trans-Pacific Partnership Threatens a Regime of Corporate Global Governance

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), branded as a trade agreement and negotiated in unprecedented secrecy, is actually an enforceable transfer of sovereignty from nations and their people to foreign corporations.  As of December 2012, eleven countries were involved—Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, Vietnam, and the United States—with the possibility of more joining in the future due to inclusion of an unusual “docking agreement.”  While the public, US Congress, and the press are locked out, 600 corporate advisors are meeting with officials of signatory governments behind closed doors to complete text for the world’s biggest multinational trade agreement, which aims to penalize countries that protect their workers, consumers, or environment.  Leaked text from the thirty-chapter agreement has revealed that negotiators have already agreed to many radical terms, granting expansive new rights and privileges for foreign investors and their enforcement through extrajudicial “investor-state” tribunals. Through these, corporations would be given special authority to dispute laws, regulations, and court decisions. Foreign firms could extract unlimited amounts of taxpayer money as compensation for “financial damages” to “expected future profits” caused by efforts to protect domestic finance, health, labor, environment, land use, and other laws they claim undermine their new TPP privileges.

2. Richest Global 1 Percent Hide Trillions in Tax Havens

The global 1 percent hold twenty-one to thirty-two trillion dollars in offshore havens in order to evade taxes, according to James S. Henry, the former chief economist at the global management consulting firm, McKinsey & Company. Based on data from the Bank for International Settlements, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and 139 countries, Henry found that the top 1 percent hid more than the total annual economic output of the US and Japan combined. For perspective, this hidden wealth is at least seven times the amount—$3 trillion—that many estimates suggest would be necessary to end global poverty.

Who Are the Top 1 Percent and How Do They Earn a Living?

The richest 1 percent of the country now owns more than 40 percent of the wealth and takes home nearly a quarter of national income. Evidence based on tax returns indicates that this superelite 1 percent consists of nonfinancial executives, financial professionals, and members of the legal, real estate, and medical professions. Earnings at this level correlate with deregulation and the other legal changes that brought on the financial crisis. While the 99 percent deal with the direct consequences of that crisis, the 1 percent increasingly have left behind deteriorating neighborhoods in favor of wealthy enclaves, further isolating themselves, according to a 2011 Stanford University study.

Small Network of Corporations Run the Global Economy

A University of Zurich study reported that a small group of companies—mainly banks—wields huge power over the global economy. The study is the first to look at all 43,060 transnational corporations and the web of ownership among them. The researchers’ network analysis identified 147 companies that form a “super entity,” controlling 40 percent of the global economy’s total wealth. The close connections mean that the network could be prone to “systemic risk” and vulnerable to collapse

1. Bradley Manning and the Failure of Corporate Media

In February 2013, United States military intelligence analyst Bradley Manning confessed in court to providing vast archives of military and diplomatic files to the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks, saying he wanted the information to become public “to make the world a better place” and that he hoped to “spark a domestic debate on the role of the military in (US) foreign policy.” The 700,000 released documents revealed a multitude of previously secret crimes and acts of deceit and corruption by US military and government officials.  According to Manning’s testimony in February 2013, he tried to release the Afghanistan and Iraq War Logs through conventional sources. In winter 2010, he contacted the Washington Post, the New York Times, and Politico in hopes that they would publish the materials. Only after being rebuffed by these three outlets did Manning begin uploading documents to WikiLeaks  Indeed, US corporate media have largely shunned Manning’s case, not to mention the importance of the information he released. When corporate media have focused on Manning, this coverage has often emphasized his sexual orientation and past life, rather than his First Amendment rights or the abusive nature of his imprisonment, which includes almost three years without trial and nearly one year in “administrative segregation,” the military equivalent of solitary.  In his February 2013 court appearance, Manning pled guilty to twelve of the twenty-two charges against him, including the capital offense of “aiding and abetting the enemy.” He faces the possibility of a life sentence without parole. His severe treatment is a warning to other possible whistleblowers.

 Signs of an Emerging Police State

Since the passage of the 2001 PATRIOT Act, the United States has become increasingly monitored and militarized at the expense of civil liberties. The 2012 passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) has allowed the military to detain indefinitely without trial any US citizen that the government labels a terrorist or an accessory to terrorism, while President Barack Obama’s signing of the National Defense Resources Preparedness Executive Order has authorized widespread federal and military control of the national economy and resources during “emergency and non-emergency conditions.” Since 2010, the Department of Homeland Security’s If You See Something, Say Something™ campaign has encouraged the public to report all suspicious activity to local authorities, even though actions that the DHS identifies as “suspicious” include the constitutionally protected right to criticize the government or engage in nonviolent protest.

Albert Einstein: “A Foolish Faith In Authority Is The Worst Enemy Of The Truth”

December 30, 2013

New%20Obama%20Joker
Don’t Be Foolish
Albert Einstein said:
A foolish faith in authority is the worst enemy of the truth.
Indeed, scientists have shown that people will go to absurd lengths – and engage in mental gymnastics – in order to cling to their belief in what those in authority have said.

Part of the reason so many are so vulnerable to naive belief in authority is that we evolved in small tribes … and we assume that the super-elites are just like us.
In reality, there are millions of psychopaths in the world … and they are largely running D.C. and on Wall Street.

Study: Politicians share personality traits with serial killers
source: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2009/06/politicians-and-serial-killers.html
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 these traits are also common to politicians.
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.”
http://current.com/community/93332432_study-politicians-share-personality-traits-with-serial-killers.htm
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.
https://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2011/07/17/why-are-politions-corrupt-because-we-live-in-a-dictatorship-not-a-democracy/
Another scientific fact is DEMOCIDE .Death by government ,its humanities biggest killer! Democide is a term revived and redefined by the political scientist R. J. Rummel as “the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide, and mass murder.” Rummel estimates that there have been 262 million victims of democide in the last century. According to his figures, six times as many people have died from the inflictions of people working for governments than have died in battlehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democide

These people have no hesitation in lying to promote their goals.

The Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs told Morley Safer of 60 Minutes and CBS News:
Look, if you think any American official is going to tell you the truth, then you’re stupid. Did you hear that? — stupid.

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 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.
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

A POLITION CANNOT TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DICTATORSHIP AND DEMOCRACY
ICELAND AND SWITZERLAND ARE THE ONLY TRUE DEMOCRACIES IN EUROPE
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 lobby groups, and are therefore a one-party-system of elected dictatorship)

Who’s to Blame … Big Government or Big Business?
https://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2013/03/13/happy-anniversary-fukushima-and-iraq/

Conservatives tend to believe that the captains of industry are virtuous and that the government can’t be trusted.
Liberals tend to believe that government servants are virtuous and that corporations can’t be trusted.
But the truth is that psychopaths are psychopaths … whether they’re in the private sector or government.

And there is no such thing as representative government or free market capitalism anymore. Big corporate money has coopted the government; and ill-guided politicians have destroyed the free market.
A LESSON FOR THE BRIGHTEST AND THE BEST. FREE MARKET CAPITALISM EXPLAINED
its not that difficult , so you see we do not need the brightest and the best.
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
http://www.marketoracle.co.uk/Article6497.html
NEWSFLASH , UK ,USA AND EUROPEAN BANKS FOUND TO BE UNPROFITABLE AND IRRESPONSIBLE .
THEREFORE YOU GET ASSET STRIPPED AND REPLACED BY RESPONSIBLE AND PROFITABLE BUSINESS MODELS!!

TODAYS REAL POLITIK IS AUTHORITARIAN VERSUS LIBETARIAN
ADAM SMITH WAS A LIBETARIAN …THERE IS NO CENTRAL AUTHORITY OR POLITIONS IN “THE WEALTH OF NATIONS”
KARL MARX AND LENIN WHERE LIBERTARIANS…WHEN THERE IS STATE THERE IS NO FREEDOM , WHEN THERE IS FREEDOM THERE IS NO STATE!!
LEFT VESUS RIGHT IS A FAKE POLITICAL ARGUEMENT
Corrupt government agencies and officials and corrupt corporations and executives have become intertwined in a malignant, symbiotic relationship.
And they’re trying to grab more and more power and wealth every day.
Big Business Has Turned Into a Criminal Syndicate
Big banks and giant oil companies have more or less become criminal enterprises.

https://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2011/11/25/when-left-and-right-unite-the-future-will-be-bright-things-we-all-agree-on/

And conservatives are not amused.
Government Has Gone Rogue
If the government were accountable, then government corruption, deceit and wrongdoing would be held to a modest level.
But the government is not accountable.

When bad government policy leads to bad results, the government manipulates the data … instead of changing policy.
Government pumps out massive amounts of propaganda through the mainstream and “gatekeeper” alternative media, movies, video games, and other venues.
The government has launched a war on journalism, and censors and manipulates social media. And see this.
The massive NSA is spying on all of us – including government officials, reporters, and everyone else – as a way to crush dissent.
And people who criticize government policy or government officials may literally be labeled terrorists.
No wonder the American public has lost faith in the 2 party system. https://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2012/11/10/british-establishment-paedophile-rings-and-their-global-partners/

DO YOU BELIEVE IN CENTRALISED AUTHORITY?
ARE YOU AN IGNORANT FASCIST?
It is only FASCISTS or the ignorant that believe in government. Todays politions ,leftwing or rightwing ,are ALL STATE CAPITALIST FASCISTS. The only difference is one side prefers BIG GOVERNMENT and the other prefers BIG CORPORATIONS. The 2 cheeks af the same arse. Can YOU REALLY tell the difference?

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
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/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.

YOU and Scottish Independence

August 12, 2013

You don’t need me to tell you how bad things are.
You already know.
You already know that the wealth of American(and European) workers is being stripped away to prop up a failed private central banking system that issues the public currency as a loan at interest, by design creating more debt than money with which to pay that debt, to trap and enslave you.
You already know your children are dying in wars of conquest intended to force that same failed system of national economics onto other nations.
You already know the US (and UK) Government has abandoned even the pretense of complying with(international Law and Human Rights) the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
You already know that the United States(and the UK) has become a nation few want their children to have to live in.(A mass of people have already left,including myself and my friends btw things got better for us)
You know all this!

The question is, what will you do about it?
It is up to you, you know.
The reality is that there are no heroes to step forward to save the situation. That is a fantasy purveyed by film and TV to lull you into the false belief that if you sit quietly at home and do nothing to challenge the rulers, that someone else will fix the problems that curse your lives.

You know that is a lie.

Superman is a comic book, the Lone Ranger a radio show, Batman does what he does only on the silver screen, government and banking will never correct the corruptions which have made then rich and powerful, the CIA is not the swell bunch of Joes portrayed in the Tom Clancy books, and the imaginary playmate in the sky is not going to alter the nature of the world in exchange for the small change you toss into the collection plates, no matter how much you grovel before that child molester in the funny looking robes.

You know that.

If there is to be a better world, for you and your children, you must make it happen. And only you can do it.
If you want truthful government, you must make public the government’s lies.
If you want honest banking, you must withdraw your business from dishonest financial institutions.
If you want accurate and fair media, you must ignore the tellers of lies and support the tellers of facts.
If you want peace, you must openly oppose war.
If you want an end to corruption, you must unite together against the corrupters.
If you want a nation that is not controlled by a foreign government, then you must remove that foreign government’s enablers.
If you want a public currency that is a public utility, you must issue that currency and refuse to use the currency designed to enslave you with debt.
If you want honest elections, then you must destroy the means by which elections are rigged, and drive from power all those who stole their offices.

Above all, you must allow yourself to be openly angry to what has been done to you, what is being done to your children, and what is being done to your nation, because this is your nation. And ultimate responsibility for the future of the nation rests with you.

Only you.

If you want a better world, you must make it happen.

You know that.

Newsnet Scotland presents … Duggy Dug in … Scotland’s Oil

Newsnet Scotland has pleasure in presenting the first in a series of animations that will take an off beat look at some of the key issues surrounding the independence debate.
Duggy Dug is our animated cartoon character who will raise a smile and a chuckle whilst providing his own inimitable commentary.
Our Scottish terrier has been months in the making and today we finally release our first animation.
‘Scotland’s Oil’ is Duggy’s take on one of the most enduring issues in the debate over Scotland’s future. How much is left, who controls it and what has happened to the cash generated since it was first discovered.
The animation has taken considerable effort and resources and our hope is that it generates sufficient donations in order to continue the series. We urge readers to contribute what they can and to distribute the link to both Duggy’s own website – DuggyDug.com – and also our own Youtube link.
DUGGY DUG – YOU’LL BELIEVE A DUG CAN TALK

Hollywood star Brian Cox provides the voice of cartoon character Duggy as we look at oil and independence.

KEEP YOUR ELECTED DICTATORSHIP POSING AS DEMOCRACY
KEEP YOUR DEBT RIDDEN BRITISH POUND
KEEP YOUR EURO DISNEY CURRENCY

ECONOMICALLY IT IS OF GREAT IMPORTANCE FOR SCOTLAND TO BE INDEPENDANT
THIS VIEW IS SHARED BY THE LEFT AND THE RIGHT
View from the LEFT
“LABOUR ministers were warned in a secret Whitehall dossier 30 years ago of the powerful case for Scotland becoming independent with booming oil revenues, but the information was kept confidential by Harold Wilson’s government to keep nationalism at bay.
The dossier, most of which was written by a leading government economist in 1974 and 1975, sets out how Scotland would have had one of the strongest currencies in Europe, attracting international capital into its banks in the same way as Switzerland.
It argued Scotland could quickly become one of Europe’s strongest economies with “embarrassingly” large tax surpluses.”
View from the RIGHT
“Adam Smith Institute, Friday, April 27, 2007
The Scottish economy could enjoy record growth if Scotland became independent, leaving the average Scot many thousands of pounds better off each year. This is the finding of a research Briefing Paper published today by the Adam Smith Institute, the free market economic think tank.”
THESE FACTS ARE STILL VERY TRUE TODAY
PLEASE READ THIS ARTICLE/POST BY JOHN JAPPY FOR SOME VERY CANDID ECONOMIC TRUTH
Before retiring, John Jappy was a senior civil servant in the Inland Revenue, working for the Accountant & Comptroller General’s Branch based at Somerset House in London. His duties involved liaising closely with Treasury officials to prepare accounts and financial information for UK government ministers.

OR A NOT SO GREAT BRITAIN

The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in inequity and born in sin . . . Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them but leave them the power to create money, and, with a flick of a pen, they will create enough money to buy it back again . . . Take this great power away from them, and all great fortunes like mine will disappear, for then this would be a better and happier world to live in. . . . But, if you want to continue to be the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let bankers continue to create money and control credit.
– Sir Josiah Stamp, Director of the Bank of England, 1927

THIS LED TO AN INCREASE IN SOCIAL POVERTY AND BROKENS HOMES AND EVEN WHOLE COMMUNITIES DECTROYED
SINGLE MOTHERS AND BREAKEN FAMILIES AND VIOLENT STREET GANGS ARE ALL JUST THATCHERS CHILDREN
GEE THANKS THATCHER…..

On Monday the British Prime Minister, David Cameron claimed that Margaret Thatcher had “saved Britain” by the economic policy she adopted and stuck to, in such a stubborn manner, while other politicians and news pundits made similar claims.
THIS CLAIM IS A LIE
IT WAS THE DISCOVERY OF NORTH SEA OIL THAT FINANCIALLY SAVED BRITAIN
THATCHER JUST SQUANDERED ALL THAT NATIONAL WEALTH ON FRAUDSTERS AND SNAKE OIL SALESMEN
THATCHER AND BANKERS ARE THE REASON BRITAIN IS BANKRUPTED AND GOVERNED BY PAEDOPHILES AND WAR CRIMINALS
So what was Thatcher’s contribution to economic policy in Britain and is there some clear definition of Thatcherism?
There is no doubt that major changes took place in the late 70’s and 80’s which significantly changed the British economy and had profound effects in income distribution, social coherence, manufacturing production and economic viability for the British economy and that Thatcher played a major role in this change.
So what exactly was that change, and will it be beneficial for Britain’s long term viability?
To understand this change we need to take a wee look at Britain’s economic history before that period.
Before the First World War Britain’s economy was based on an empire which functioned very much on the basis of Britain importing “cheap” raw materials from it’s “colonies” around the world and being a world class manufacturing centre supported by an effective banking structure and a powerful military and administrative structure. This ensured that when Britain strongly supported “classical economics” and defended “free trade” in international markets this happily fitted well with British trade.
THE RISE OF KEYNES…AND HIS “BENINGN” STATE CAPITALISM …… AKA  FASCISM
All of this changed after the 1914-18 war; indeed it was a major cause of that war. In the period between the wars classical economic and free trade suffered a loss of credibility as a result of market fluctuations and massive unemployment in the great depression.
So by the time the Second World War started people were desperately seeking better, more effective economic models than the classical model which had failed. It was in this period that John Maynard Keynes developed his theories about Government control and regulation to intervene in the market to effect employment and production.
It is a sobering fact that after the first year of the Second World War Britain still had considerable unemployment among shipyard workers, while the Germans were working full blast and importing labour to build ships to challenge the British Navy.
Churchill, when he come to power changed that and employed Keynes as a Government economic advisor. This final rejection of classical economics and the changeover to Keynesian economic policy was not noticed in the middle of the war, but it cured unemployment and enabled us to build an economy which could ensure our part in the final defeat of Hitler.
The Attlee Government which took over at the end of the war continued to employ Keynes as an economic advisor and continued to follow a Keynesian policy. This Government was the most successful Government ever in Britain and left a valuable legacy for the Governments which followed in terms of economic policy, full employment, social benefits and “Public Assets” and their policy was so successful that the Tory Governments which followed behind were afraid to change this policy and continued to operate a Keynesian full employment strategy.
In the 1970’s the British economy was still maintaining relatively full employment but the level of investment had been very low so that manufacturing productivity and economic efficiency in general was falling sharply. Briton was confronted with an international market in which it was increasingly unable to effectively compete with other emerging economies. There was an economic crisis every year either a “balance of payments” problem or a “run on the pound” or inflation, or wage disputes. The media was calling Britain the “sick man of Europe”.
In this situation the right wing in the Labour Party supported a policy which would keep wages down in return for full employment. The wanted an “incomes policy” or a “social contract” which would see workers accept low wages in order to save the national economy. This policy which may have been well intended was fatally flawed because the problem was not high wages it was low investment, and low wages merely encourage low investment in a capitalist market.
If we need a date when the Labour leadership rejected Keynesian policies then perhaps it is Jim Callaghan’s speech to the 1976 Labour Party Conference where he told conference “We used to think that you could spend your way out of a recession and increase employment by cutting taxes and boosting Government spending. I tell you, in all candour, that that option no longer exits.” That statement is a clear rejection of Labour’s Keynesian past.
This of course led to bitter internal fighting in the labour movement and eventually to the tragic “Winter of Discontent” where Callaghan tried to force an incomes policy on low-paid Government employees, much to the delight of Thatcher and the Tories.
THE THATCHER CON…
SELLING OLD AND USED IDEOLOGIES AS NEW AND INNOVATIVE VIA A SATTCHI AND SATTCHI ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN AND AN ILLEGAL WAR
MODERN POLITICS IS BORN
So the rejection of Keynesian economics and the adoption of neo-liberalism or more accurately, neo-classical economics started in the final days of the Callaghan Government, but Thatcher embraced it from the beginning and she pursued this strategy with vigour and determination in the teeth of bitter opposition, creating mass unemployment and industrial devastation on a huge scale all over Britain but with most effect in the areas of relatively high industrialization.
This adoption of neo-classical economic theory with blind faith in “free market” solutions not only caused mass unemployment and a huge loss of manufacturing capacity, which were widely unpopular (Thatcher was the most unpopular PM ever according to the polls just prior to the Falklands war), but they would have led to a considerable fall in GNP, a balance of payments crisis and a run on the pound, if it had not been for substantial oil coming ashore from the north sea just at that time which miraculously boosted the GNP, supported the weak pound and helped the balance of payments.
This development in the economy, which had been set in train long before Thatcher, combined with the political boost she got from the Falklands war saved Thatcher from ignominious defeat at the next general election and turned it into substantial victory.
This convinced Thatcher that she was right and for most people if seemed as though she understood how to get the economic improvements which everyone claimed was required. So Thatcher went full-steam ahead and took on the miners in order to undermine the working class organisational base.
This she achieved, again with the strong support of Scottish oil and her reputation as a politician who knew how to deal with “economic” problems rose, as did the idea of Thatcherism. However although that reputation has survived and people still claim as Cameron did, that she saved Britain, what is Thatcherism?
Well as an economic theory it does not exist. Thatcher was ignorant in the economic field. She claimed to be a strong supporter of Adam Smith’s ideas, but it is obvious that she did not understand them. Karl Marx could have explained to her the great value of Smith’s work which he certainly appreciated.
Thatcherism in economic terms is simply a return to classical economics with all its failings and an emotional rejection of Keynesian ideas.
Thatcher’s destruction of industry and manufacturing in Britain was not replaced by heavy investment to re-new or up-date industry; on the contrary it left industry in Britain in permanent decline. It used public assets to boost private assets by state organised raiding of public assets for cheap sale which she called “privatisation” which was supposed to help the economy, not by economic theory but by blind belief. However it made a lot of people rich without adding anything to the real GNP.
In support of her obsession with free market ideology, she and Ronald Reagan cut controls and regulation of the Banking and financial systems in Britain and the USA which led directly to the international banking crisis in 2008.

FYI THATCHERITES
CAPITALISM FOR DUMMIES
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
http://www.marketoracle.co.uk/Article6497.html
THEREFORE…..
NO BAILOUT!!!!!!!!!
LET THE BANKS FALL

The British economy today has only the shadow of the manufacturing base it had when she came to power and with her neo-classical policies being continued by the present Tory Government the economy is in decline or stagnation and living standards are falling. We have the fourth most unequal society in the world with “free market” operations everywhere but still low investment and high inflation on top of unemployment and the Government is blaming the poor for this mess. To top it all the economy is entirely dependent on the Banking and finance sector which has grown enormously and which we know is vulnerable and corrupt to the core.
Scottish oil is still a substantial support for this ailing economy, but is not going into investment but to hold up falling revenue.
That is Thatcher’s legacy for Britain. Britain now has no economic future worth consideration. Her legacy for Scotland however is much better, she, more than any other person, convinced the Scots that they needed to take control of their own destiny. They forced through some devolution, but not enough for most so they will have a chance next year to take complete control and organise their own affairs.
Thatcher herself, when asked what her legacy for Britain was, said it was “New Labour” and that was perhaps the wisest judgement or assessment she ever made.

MORE OF THATCHERS LEGACY PAEDOPHILES IN POWER
Prime Ministerial aide Sir Peter Morrison, who was also an MP, was Margaret Thatcher’s parliamentary private secretary when she was Prime Minister.
An eye witness who worked at the North Wales Care Home has claimed he saw Sir Peter Morrison and others regularly visit the home to pick up boys, who were then returned later in a distressed state with unexplained injuries.
Former Tory Minister Edwina Currie also claimed Morrison, who died in 1995 at the age of 52, regularly had sex with teenage boys under the age of consent. Ms Currie claimed that his behaviour was covered up by senior Tories.
Former leader of the Welsh Conservatives Rod Richards said he had seen evidence linking Sir Peter to the North Wales children’s homes scandal.
In an interview with the Mail on Sunday, Mr Richards said: “What I do know is that Morrison was a paedophile. And the reason I know that is because of the North Wales child abuse scandal.”
When the Newsnight clouds clear, there is surely a trail of evidence that investigators ought to be looking into.

Number Of Billionaires Soars Despite Downturn
The number of billionaires in the UK has increased to 32, with the Duke of Westminster Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor again named the country’s richest man
Despite the property slump, the 59-year-old landowner increased his worth to $13bn – but still only managed 57th on the Forbes global rich list.
Despite the global economic downturn, the Forbes 25th list of the richest people on the planet saw the number of billionaires increase by 214 to a record 1,210.
THE POOR GET THE PICTURE
Global poverty doubled since 1970s: UN
GENEVA — The number of very poor countries has doubled in the last 30 to 40 years, while the number of people living in extreme poverty has also grown two-fold, a UN think-tank warned Thursday.
In its annual report on the 49 least developed countries (LDCs) in the world, the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) said that the model of development that has prevailed to date for these countries has failed and should be re-assessed.
“The traditional models that have been applied to LDCs that tend to move the LDCs in the direction of trade-related growth seem not to have done very well,” said Supachai Panitchpakdi, secretary general of UNCTAD.
“What happened is that in the past 30-40 years, the number of LDCs have doubled so it has actually deteriorated, the number of people living under the poverty line has doubled from the 1980s.”
The report indicated that the situation has sharply deteriorated in the past few years

The IMF and World Bank were created over 60 years ago to realign the global economic landscape.
Andrew Gavin Marshall from the Centre for Research on Globalization, however, says that the actions of these international economic giants did little to help the third world countries it advertised it would, and instead has only helped make the wealthier countries wealthier

WHY DO WE SUFFER POLITIONS AT ALL?
THEY BREAK THE 2ND LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS
THE MORE YOU IMPOSE LAW ,THE MORE YOU ACCELERATE CHAOS!!
IN CAPITALISM OR SOCIALISM THERE ARE NO POLITIONS IN A CENTRALISED POWER AUTHORITY ANYWHERE!!!!
THEY ARE NOT EVEN MENTIONED IN ADAM SMITHS “WEALTH OF NATIONS”…A BOOK THATCHER OBVIOUSLY DID NOT READ!!
IN THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO THE GOVERNMENT CAN ONLY WITHER AWAY…IT CAN BE SEEN AS ADMINISTRATORS ASSET STRIPPING A BUSSINESS AND HANDING IT BACK TO THE CREDITORS AKA THE PEOPLE
AS POINTED OUT IN THE ABOVE ARTICLE ,WE ARE NOT A CAPITALIST OR SOCIALIST SOCIETY
IF WE WHERE THE POLITIONS WOULD BE OUT OF A JOB, AND SUPURFLOUS TO REQUIREMENTS
NEITHER IDEOLOGY REQUIRES A POLITION OR A PRIME MINISTER
THERE ARE NO POLITIONS OR CENTRALISED AUTHORITY IN EITHER POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY

TODAYS POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY IS STATE CAPITALSIM
AKA FASCISM

THATCHERS STATE CAPITALISM
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
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/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)

The State Demonisation of Freedom and Liberty and Those that Support It

THE MSM LIES ABOUT ANARCHISM
IT CLAIMS THAT “STATES OF CHAOS” ARE IN FACT “STATES OF ANARCHY”
THIS IS AN IGNORANT LIE AND A MSM RUT (REPEAT UNTIL TRUE)
FYI
SWITZERLAND IS IN A STATE OF ANARCHY
ITS IS A “ANARCHISTIC” DIRECT DEMOCRACY
IRAQ IS IN A STATE OF CHAOS
CREATED BY WESTERN POWERS TRYING TO IMPOSE THIER LAW, IT HAS GENERATED MASS CHAOS
GET THE TRUE FACTS ABOUT ANARCHY
Anarchism is the great liberator of man from the phantoms that have held him captive; it is the arbiter and pacifier of the two forces for individual and social harmony.
Emma Goldman

Someone has said that it requires less mental effort to condemn than to think.
The most violent element in society is ignorance.
Emma Goldman

The demand for equal rights in every vocation of life is just and fair; but, after all, the most vital right is the right to love and be loved.
Free love? as if love is anything but free. Man has bought brains, but all the millions in the world have failed to buy love.
Emma Goldman
http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/e/emma_goldman.html
https://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2009/11/04/libertarian-vs-authoritarian-todays-real-politic/
ANARCHISM IS A POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY THAT EVERY INFORMED PERSON CAN AGREE WITH
THAT IS WHY THE STATE CONDEMNS ANARCHISM ,LIES ABOUT IT AND MIS-REPRESENTS IT
THE STATE BLAMES ANARCHISM FOR SOCIAL DISORDER
WHEN IT IS THE STATE THAT IS GENERATINMG THE SOCIAL DISORDER
IT IS THE 2ND LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS IN ACTION
THE MORE YOU IMPOSE LAW ,THE MORE YOU ACCELERATE CHAOS
THINK!!
HOW CAN PASSING A LAW REDUCE CRIME?!?!!
IT CAN ONLY CREATE A NEW CRIMINAL CLASS ….AND THUS INCREASE SOCIAL CHAOS
THERE IS A STATE LAW AGAINST MURDER
HOW IS THAT GOING?
THE STATE NOW TRAINS MURDERS EN MASSE AND SHIPS THEM AROUND THE WORLD WITH COMPLETE IMMUNITY TO LOCAL LAWS TO RAPE AND MURDER
IN THE OLD DAYS IT WAS PRIESTS GIVING ABSOLUTION TO MASS MURDERING CRUSADERS ,SO LONG AS THEY MURDERED THE NON-BELIEVERS
TODAY ITS THE POLITITION GIVING ABSOLUTUION TO OUR SOLDIERS WITH DOGTAGS
THIS REDUCES OUR NATIONAL WEALTH AND REDUCES OUR PUBLIC SAFETY

ANARCHISM IS NOT A RADICAL PHILOSOPHY
ADAM SMITH,ARCHITECT OF CAPITALISM, WAS AN ANARCHIST
THERE IS NO CENTRALISED GOVERNMENT IN “THE WEALTH OF NATIONS”
KARL MARX AND LENIN WHERE ANARCHISTS
“WHEN THERE IS STATE THERE IS NO FREEDOM ,WHEN THERE IS FREEDOM THERE IS NO STATE”
THE ONLY POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY THAT NEEDS CENTRALISED GOVERNMENT IS STATE CAPITALISM
AKA FASCISM

ANARCHISM IS NATURAL TO HUMANITY

The Secret Life of Chaos-(BBC 2010)-Full Length Documentary

Chaos theory has a bad name,(like anarchy ,its political version) conjuring up images of unpredictable weather, economic crashes and science gone wrong. But there is a fascinating and hidden side to Chaos, one that scientists are only now beginning to understand.
It turns out that chaos theory answers a question that mankind has asked for millennia – how did we get here?
In this documentary, Professor Jim Al-Khalili sets out to uncover one of the great mysteries of science – how does a universe that starts off as dust end up with intelligent life? How does order emerge from disorder?
It’s a mind bending, counter intuitive and for many people a deeply troubling idea. But Professor Al-Khalili reveals the science behind much of beauty and structure in the natural world and discovers that far from it being magic or an act of God, it is in fact an intrinsic part of the laws of physics. Amazingly, it turns out that the mathematics of chaos can explain how and why the universe creates exquisite order and pattern.
And the best thing is that one doesn’t need to be a scientist to understand it. The natural world is full of awe-inspiring examples of the way nature transforms simplicity into complexity. From trees to clouds to humans – after watching this film you’ll never be able to look at the world in the same way again.

TODAY THE STATE CLASSIFIES ANARCHISTS WITH TERRORISTS
Editors Notes:
Anarchism is a political philosophy that seeks to build an egalitarian society in which mutual aid, co-operation and direct democracy will replace capitalism and the state.
The St Imier Congress was a gathering of anarchists from all over the world to celebrate the 140th anniversary of the first international anarchist gathering in the Swiss town of St Imier in 1872.
THE CONTINUING STATE PERSECUTION OF LIBERTARIANS AND ANARCHISTS
Anarchists Detained by Counter-Terrorist Police on Return from Swiss Conference
For the past week, thousands of anarchists from across the world have been converging in St.Imier, Switzerland to celebrate the 140th anniversary of the founding of the Anarchist international. The gathering took the form of a festival and educational, with music, films and entertainment as well as workshops and discussions.
On returning from the St Imier gathering, two anarchists, one a member of the UK Anarchist Federation, were detained for nearly two hours at Heathrow by SO15 (counter-terrorist) intelligence who initially refused to identify themselves to the detainees. During the detention, the anarchists were told that their normal rights did not apply, and had their names, addresses, email addresses, DNA, photographs and fingerprints taken. The detained anarchists were also forced to sign forms – which may or may not be legal – waiving their rights to silence and a solicitor. Police also conducted a thorough search of personal possessions, photocopied literature and passports and took information from phones and cameras.
During the detention, the police constantly accused the anarchists of lying about involvement in criminal activity and alleged that they would be conducting follow-up police action against one of the detained anarchists. In addition to this, SO15 officers asked a number of inflammatory, irrelevant and offensive questions, including ‘what would you do if someone raped your mother?’ evidently in an attempt to cause emotional upset and illicit angry or violent responses. One member (28) who did not want to be named for fear of reprisals from the police, said “We were treated like criminals. I told them I went to the congress as I am an amateur journalist and I write articles about activism. They saw my note book, camera and Dictaphone but they said I was lying.” One officer said ‘You said you are an anarchist, I’ve seen anarchists on the news, they are violent, throw molotov cocktails and disrupt people’s lives not write articles”.
The counter terrorist officers either didn’t know or chose to ignore that, during the first day of the gathering, the International of Anarchist Federations (Of which the UK Anarchist Federation is a member) had issued a statement rejecting all terrorist tactics as a means of achieving an anarchist society.
In contrast to the actions of the UK security forces, the local press and residents in St.Imier reported very positively on the anarchist gathering.
With this incident, we are seeing a further slide towards political policing and the criminalisation of political ideologies. The two detained anarchists have not had any involvement in any illegal or violent activity, or any activity that would concern the counter-terrorist police. As in the past, when Metropolitan police called on people to give information about local anarchists ( Anarchists should be reported, advises Westminster anti-terror police | UK news | The Guardian ), anarchists suffered harassment for their political viewpoint.
As class-struggle anarchists, we believe that the state does little except serve the interests of the rich and powerful at the expense of ordinary people. This is seen clearly when people who hold views critical of the state are treated as criminals and terrorists. We seek to create a classless society, based on freedom, equality and co-operation. We believe in the capacity of ordinary people to run society themselves, without the interference of bosses or politicians. This incident was not in response to any crime and constitutes repression and criminalisation of a political ideology.

BUT IN REALITY IT IS THE POLITION THAT SUPPORTS TERRORISM AND CAUSES MASS MURDER AND DESTRUCTION GLOBALLY

SO..WHAT SORT OF PEOPLE DOES CENTRALISED GOVERNMENT ATTRACT?…VERY BAD PEOPLE
Study: Politicians share personality traits with serial killers
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.”
http://current.com/community/93332432_study-politicians-share-personality-traits-with-serial-killers.htm

“If the people were to ever find out what we have done, we would be chased down the streets and lynched.”
George Bush, cited in the June, 1992 Sarah McClendon Newsletter

WHAT ARE THE REAL EFFECTS OF CENTRALISED GOVERNMENT…MASS MURDER
Another scientific fact is DEMOCIDE .Death by government ,its humanities biggest killer!
Democide is a term revived and redefined by the political scientist R. J. Rummel as “the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide, and mass murder.”
Rummel estimates that there have been 262 million victims of democide in the last century. According to his figures, six times as many people have died from the inflictions of people working for governments than have died in battle

THE LIES THAT POLITIONS TELL US ABOUT FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY
POLITIONS SELL US STATE CAPITALISM AND CALL IT 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

Benito Mussolini, fascist dictator of Italy (1922-1943)
https://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2010/03/11/elected-dictatorship-posing-as-democracy/
IT IS NOTHING MORE THAN AN ELECTED DICTATORSHIP
POLITICAL PARTIES ARE THE CHEERLEADERS OF THE DICTATORSHIP
IF VOTING COULD CHANGE ANYTHING THEY WOULD BAN IT!
“REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY” REPRESENTS DEMOCRACY IN THE SAME WAY A TRANVESTITE REPRESENTS A WOMAN
DIRECT DEMOCRACY IS REAL DEMOCRACY
A POLITION CANNOT TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A DICTATORSHIP AND A DEMOCRACY
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 lobby groups, and are therefore a one-party-system of elected dictatorship)

Lessons From the Egyptian Insurrection: Communization, Strategy, and Solidarity
Interesting analysis of recent events in Egypt;
Provinces along the Suez Canal. Alexandria, Port Said, Suez, Ismaili, and Cairo have seen extensive clashes and the defiance of all curfews, with Port Said effectively seceding and military leaders warning of a state collapse. Within this fold, an explicitly revolutionary force has announced itself, calling itself Black Blocairo, Black Block Egypt, or simply the Black Bloc, pointing beyond the use of the black mask and violence as a tactic and towards a more organized and explicitly insurrectional position in North Africa.

REAL FORGOTTEN HEROES
“War is organised murder and nothing else. Politicians who took us to war should have been given the guns and told to settle their differences themselves, instead of organising nothing better than legalised mass murder.”
-Harry Patch, the last WWI Veteran in europe (1889-2009)
Patch had no time for the Act of Remembrance on 11 November, an event he described as “just show business”.

In the three years before the British government responded to the fascist threat in Europe in the late 1930s, between two and four thousand antifascists, anarchists, socialists, communists and trade unionists from Great Britain and Ireland fought as volunteers to the 16th British Battalion of the International Brigades, alongside volunteers from 53 nations across the world, against Franco’s fascist regime in Spain.
On February 27th 1939, the British government officially recognised the legitimacy of Franco’s government.
Remember also then, today, the people that fought and died with the International Brigades, and who are afforded little place in the official histories of the Second World War.

THEY ARE ALSO SUPPORTTING THE ISLAMIC TERRORISTS

A REAL NOBEL PEACE PRIZE WINNERS SPEAKS
The next time you watch one of the legions of police brutality videos on the internet, ask yourself: who really hates you for your freedoms (what few are left)?
– On June 8, 1978, Solzhenitzyn, who won the Nobel Peace Prize for Literature in 1970 for his book “The Gulag Archipelago,” was addressing an audience at Harvard University: ”
And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . .”

“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

Fukushima: Two Years of Cover Up
Posted on March 11, 2013 by Rachel Cohen

Today is the second anniversary of the Fukushima disaster and the true scale of its effect upon the United States and indeed the world can only be gauged by the extent of the cover up. Looking at the situation logically and considering the fact that agencies like the EPA would like to have a thermometer up the backside of every person around the world under the guise of monitoring climate change, one would think that we would have been seeing daily reports as to the spread of the contamination from Fukushima through the air, ocean currents, and residual contact with items coming out of Japan.
We have heard of no punishment for those responsible for the failures at the plant following the earthquake and tsunami, which goes to show us once again that the top criminals around the planet have gained such power that they have become literally untouchable.
The EPA in the United States, which is so worried about our well being that we have been seeing SWAT team raids on those buying, selling, and consuming raw milk, has been silent as to the degree of contamination from Fukushima, which has penetrated into our food and water supplies, again, not just here, but around the world.
The international nuclear energy corporations have been successful in not only getting away with Fukushima, but also in quieting all dissent across the US, as aging reactors continue to leak death upon our land and into our waters.
According to the World Nuclear Association, “In the USA there are plans for 13 new reactors, and two combined construction and operating licenses for these were issued early in 2012 while five more are under review. All are for late third-generation plants, and a further proposal is for two ABWR units. It is expected that some of the new reactors will be on line by 2020.”
I looked for the amount that we taxpayers are subsidizing the nuclear industry in the United States and the closest thing I could come up with for a number was from 2010, which amounted to $2.5 billion. It would appear that these numbers are not meant to be readily accessible by the taxpayer.
I will close this article with the ultimate in despicable irony. If our population has been critically radiated by Fukushima, does anyone believe that this insurgent government, that makes no secret of the fact that they want us all dead, would let us know? The one absolute lesson that cannot be denied as a result of Fukushima is that when put in the balance with elitist profits, the lives of common people are outweighed to the point of insignificance and when the cancers become widespread, any compensation for the victims will be denied, using the excuse that no credible data exists to support the claims. And again, we have those who we have paid handsomely to monitor such catastrophes to thank for this situation.

World War III, Them, You, and Me
Posted on March 11, 2013 by Rick Bronson

It has been ten years since the United States invaded Iraq for the sole purpose of changing that country’s regime and turning its resources over to the Zionist state of Israel. We all saw the pictures of Bagdad as the United States opened up with weapons of mass destruction, citing the lie of a nuclear threat as just cause to bomb what was the most modern country in the Middle East back to the Stone Age.
122,000 innocent men, women, and children murdered and look at the country today – car bombings, secular murders, pain, and fear. Don’t forget that once the lie of the weapons of mass destruction was revealed, the mission statement was changed to “We are freeing the people of Iraq so that they might know peace and happiness under democracy.”
Afghanistan we invaded under the guise that terrorists were training in their country. Again, death and carnage for ten plus years upon the people of Afghanistan and Pakistan and what was the real reason? To shut down the Taliban who had shut down opium production. Massive death and suffering for a flower.
Libya, a rich country about to become a lot richer: Once again an invasion for nothing more than regime change and to protect the petro dollar from any competition from the gold dinar. Again, the people of Libya are being put through hell after being bombed back into the Stone Age under the guise of doing the right thing for them.
Today we see our own country falling victim to the same Zionist fraud as the international socialist traitors within seek to divide us that we might slaughter one another in a civil war, designed to leave our country and the rest of the world in chaos that we might accept a one world government, a new world wherein 99% of the population accepts servitude to the 1% international elitist Zionists that have declared themselves gods upon the earth and the rest of humanity as a waste product needing of disposal.
We are heading into dangerous times as the Zionists become more exposed every day. They are now becoming desperate and to say they are capable of murder would be downplaying the situation. The enemies of humanity are already slaughtering us wholesale using eugenics and vaccines. Yet there are just so many of us on this planet that the program for our destruction must be escalated, and soon, as the threat to globalist domination has become real in the eyes of our enemy.
Expect to see in this next year an effort towards population reduction coming from a hundred different angles. When we do act against our enemies, we had better do so with an emphasis on immediately gaining intelligence as to the implements that are to be used to destroy us and the safeguards our enemies have put in place to preserve themselves.
We must stop looking at places like Palestine as distant and not effectual to our own situation, as the genocide we see there is exactly what the Zionists intend to unleash upon us.
There but for the grace of God go I.

THE SOLUTION CANNOT BE FOUND IN A POLITICAL PARTY
ALL POLITICAL PARTIES ARE JUST CHEERLEADERS OF THE DICTATORSHIP
ONCE EVERY 4 YEARS WE GET TO CHOOSE THE COLOUR OF THE POM POMS

THE SOLUTION IS DIRECT DEMOCRAY

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, US and EU)where sovereignty is exercised by a subset of the people, usually on the basis of election…….OR the choice of Tweedle dee or Tweedle dum, as today all our government representatives, represent the same lobby groups

Hugo Chavez a libertarian socialist and a hero in every sense.A shining example to us all .His revolution was never televised ,unless to discredit or lie about it. But his revolution has shaken the world and still may win the day …globally  ,Beware Fake Libertarians and False Prophets …for virtual profits!

The death of Hugo Chávez is a great loss to the people of Venezuela who have been lifted out of poverty and have created a deep participatory democracy. Chavez was a leader who, in unity with the people, was able to free Venezuela from the grips of US Empire, bring dignity to the poor and working class, and was central to a Latin American revolt against US domination.
Chávez grew up a campesino, a peasant, raised in poverty. His parents were teachers, his grandmother an Indian whom he credits with teaching him solidarity with the people. During his military service, he learned about Simon Bolivar, who freed Latin America from Spanish Empire. This gradually led to the modern Bolivarian Revolution he led with the people. The Chávez transformation was built on many years of a mass political movement that continued after his election, indeed saved him when a 2002 coup briefly removed him from office. The reality is Venezuela’s 21st Century democracy is bigger than Chávez. This will become more evident now that he is gone.

The Lies They Tell Us

If Americans knew the truth about the growth of real democracy in Venezuela and other Latin American countries, they would demand economic democracy and participatory government, which together would threaten the power of concentrated wealth. Real democracy creates a huge challenge to the oligarchs and their neoliberal agenda because it is driven by human needs, not corporate greed. That is why major media in the US, which are owned by six corporations, aggressively misinform the public about Chávez and the Bolivarian Revolution.
Mark Weisbrot of the Center for Economic and Policy Research writes:
The Western media reporting has been effective. It has convinced most people outside of Venezuela that the country is run by some kind of dictatorship that has ruined it.
In fact, just the opposite is true. Venezuela, since the election of Chávez, has become one of the most democratic nations on Earth. Its wealth is increasing and being widely shared. But Venezuela has been made so toxic that even the more liberal media outlets propagate distortions to avoid being criticized as too leftist.

WESTERN REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY IN ACTION
“A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers.”
Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) Author Source: Forward to ‘Brave New World’, 1932
“Our only political party has two right wings, one called Republican, the other Democratic. But Henry Adams figured all that out back in the 1890s. ‘We have a single system,’ he wrote, and ‘in that system the only question is the price at which the proletariat is to be bought and sold, the bread and circuses.”
Gore Vidal narrates the Fall of the American Empire
THE WESTERN TOTALITARIAN SYSTEM
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
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/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)
BUT OURS LEADERS LIKE TO KEEP US IN THE DARK ……..WHILE CHAVEZ SETS HIS PEOPLE FREE
“If the people were to ever find out what we have done, we would be chased down the streets and lynched.”
– George Bush, cited in the June, 1992 Sarah McClendon Newsletter

Challenging American Empire

The subject of Venezuela is taboo because it has been the most successful country to repel the neoliberal assault waged by the US on Latin America. This assault included Operation Condor, launched in 1976, in which the US provided resources and assistance to bring friendly dictators who supported neoliberal policies to power throughout Latin America. These policies involved privatizing national resources and selling them to foreign corporations, de-funding and privatizing public programs such as education and health care, deregulating and reducing trade barriers.
In addition to intense political repression under these dictators between the 1960s and 1980s, which resulted in imprisonment, murder and disappearances of tens of thousands throughout Latin America, neoliberal policies led to increased wealth inequality, greater hardship for the poor and working class, as well as a decline in economic growth.
Neoliberalism in Venezuela arrived through a different path, not through a dictator. Although most of its 20th century was spent under authoritarian rule, Venezuela has had a long history of pro-democracy activism. The last dictator, Marcos Jimenez Perez, was ousted from power in 1958. After that, Venezuelans gained the right to elect their government, but they existed in a state of pseudo-democracy, much like the US currently, in which the wealthy ruled through a managed democracy that ensured the wealthy benefited most from the economy.
As it did in other parts of the world, the US pushed its neoliberal agenda on Venezuela through the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank. These institutions required Structural Adjustment Programs (SAP) as terms for development loans. As John Perkins wrote in Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, great pressure was placed on governments to take out loans for development projects. The money was loaned by the US, but went directly to US corporations who were responsible for the projects, many of which failed, leaving nations in debt and not better off. Then the debt was used as leverage to control the government’s policies so they further favored US interests. Anun Shah explains the role of the IMF and World Bank in more detail in Structural Adjustment – a Major Cause of Poverty.
Protests erupted in the towns surrounding the capitol, Caracas, and quickly spread into the city itself. President Perez responded by revoking multiple constitutional rights to protest and sending in security forces who killed an estimated 3,000 people, most of them in the barrios. This became known as the “Caracazo” (“the Caracas smash”) and demonstrated that the president stood with the oligarchs, not with the people.
Under President Perez, conditions continued to deteriorate for all but the wealthy in Venezuela. So people organized in their communities and with Lieutenant Colonel Hugo Chávez attempted a civilian-led coup in 1992. Chávez was jailed, and so the people organized for his release. Perez was impeached for embezzlement of 250 million bolivars and the next president, Rafael Caldera, promised to release Chávez when he was elected. Chávez was freed in 1994. He then traveled throughout the country to meet with people in their communities and organizers turned their attention to building a political movement.

https://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2010/05/09/bank-corruption-and-fraudthe-who-the-how-and-the-why-and-the-simple-solution/

Chávez ran for president in 1998 on a platform that promised to hold a constituent assembly to rewrite the constitution saying:

I swear before my people that upon this moribund constitution I will drive forth the necessary democratic transformations so that the new republic will have a Magna Carta befitting these new times.

Against the odds, Chávez won the election and became president in 1999.
While his first term was cautious and center-left, including a visit by Chávez to the NY Stock Exchange to show support for capitalism and encourage foreign investment, he kept his promise. Many groups participated in the formation of the new constitution, which was gender-neutral and included new rights for women and for the indigenous, and created a government with five branches adding a people’s and electoral branches. The new constitution was voted into place by a 70 percent majority within the year. Chávez also began to increase funding for the poor and expanded and transformed education.
Since then, Chávez has been re-elected twice. He was removed from power briefly in 2002, jailed and replaced by Pedro Carmona, the head of what is equivalent to the Chamber of Commerce. Fox commented that the media was complicit in the coup by blacking it out and putting out false information. Carmona quickly moved to revoke the constitution and disband the legislature. When the people became aware of what was happening, they rapidly mobilized and surrounded the capitol in Caracas. Chávez was reinstated in less than 48 hours.
One reason the Chávez election is called a Bolivarian Revolution is because Simon Bolivar was a military political leader who freed much of Latin America from the Spanish Empire in the early 1800s. The election of Chávez, the new constitution and the people overcoming the coup set Venezuela on the path to free itself from the US empire. These changes emboldened the transformation to sovereignty, economic democracy and participatory government.
In fact, Venezuela paid its debts to the IMF in full five years ahead of schedule and in 2007 separated from the IMF and World Bank, thus severing the tethers of the Washington Consensus. Instead, Venezuela led the way to create the Bank of the South to provide funds for projects throughout Latin America and allow other countries to free themselves from the chains of the IMF and World Bank too.

The Rise of Real Democracy

The struggle for democracy brought an understanding by the people that change only comes if they create it. The pre- Chávez era is seen as a pseudo Democracy, managed for the benefit of the oligarchs. The people viewed Chávez as a door that was opened for them to create transformational change. He was able to pass laws that aided them in their work for real democracy and better conditions.
Chávez refers to the new system as “21st century socialism.” It is very much an incomplete work in progress, but already there is a measurable difference.
Mark Weisbrot of CEPR points out that real GDP per capita in Venezuela expanded by 24 percent since 2004. In the 20 years prior to Chávez, real GDP per person actually fell. Venezuela has low foreign public debt, about 28 percent of GDP, and the interest on it is only 2 percent of GDP.
Weisbrot writes:
From 2004-2011, extreme poverty was reduced by about two-thirds. Poverty was reduced by about one-half, and this measures only cash income. It does not count the access to health care that millions now have, or the doubling of college enrollment – with free tuition for many. Access to public pensions tripled. Unemployment is half of what it was when Chávez took office.

Venezuela has reduced unemployment from 20 percent to 7 percent.

As George Galloway wrote upon Chávez’s death:
Under Chávez’ revolution the oil wealth was distributed in ever rising wages and above all in ambitious social engineering. He built the fifth largest student body in the world, creating scores of new universities. More than 90% of Venezuelans ate three meals a day for the first time in the country’s history. Quality social housing for the masses became the norm with the pledge that by the end of the presidential term, now cut short, all Venezuelans would live in a dignified house.
Venezuela is making rapid progress on other measures too. It has a high human development index and a low and shrinking index of inequality. Wealth inequality in Venezuela is half of what it is in the United States. It is rated “the fifth-happiest nation in the world” by Gallup. And Pepe Escobar writes that:
No less than 22 public universities were built in the past 10 years. The number of teachers went from 65,000 to 350,000. Illiteracy has been eradicated. There is an ongoing agrarian reform.
Venezuela has undertaken significant steps to build food security through land reform and government assistance. New homes are being built, health clinics are opening in under-served areas and cooperatives for agriculture and business are growing.
Venezuelans are very happy with their democracy.While 81 percent voted in the last Venezuelan election, only 57.5 percent voted in the recent US election.
Chávez won that election handily as he has all of the elections he has run in since 1999. As Galloway describes him, Chávez was “the most elected leader in the modern era.” He won his last election with 55 percent of the vote but was never inaugurated due to his illness.

Beyond Voting: The Deepening of Democracy in Venezuela

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, US and EU)where sovereignty is exercised by a subset of the people, usually on the basis of election…….OR the choice of Tweedle dee or Tweedle dum, as today all our government representatives, represent the same lobby groups
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct_democracy

It takes time to build a new democratic structure from the bottom up. And it takes time to transition from a capitalist culture to one based on solidarity and participation. In “Venezuela Speaks,” one activist, Iraida Morocoima, says “Capitalism left us with so many vices that I think our greatest struggle is against these bad habits that have oppressed us.” She goes on to describe a necessary culture shift as, “We must understand that we are equal, while at the same time we are different, but with the same rights.”
Chávez passed a law in 2006 that united various committees in poor barrios into community councils that qualify for state funds for local projects. In the city, community councils are composed of 200 to 400 families. The councils elect spokespeople and other positions such as executive, financial and “social control” committees. The council members vote on proposals in a general assembly and work with facilitators in the government to carry through on decisions. In this way, priorities are set by the community and funds go directly to those who can carry out the project such as building a road or school. There are currently more than 20,000 community councils in Venezuela creating a grassroots base for participatory government.
A long-term goal is to form regional councils from the community councils and ultimately create a national council. Some community councils already have joined as communes, a group of several councils, which then have the capacity for greater research and to receive greater funds for large projects.
The movement to place greater decision-making capacity and control of local funds in the hands of communities is happening throughout Latin America and the world. It is called participatory budgeting and it began in Porto Alegre, Brazil in 1989 and has grown so that as many as 50,000 people now participate each year to decide as much as 20 percent of the city budget. There are more than 1,500 participatory budgets around the world in Latin America, North America, Asia, Africa, and Europe. Fox produced a documentary, Beyond Elections: Redefining Democracy in the Americas, which explains participatory budgeting in greater detail.

The Unfinished Work of Hugo Chávez Continues

The movements that brought him to power and kept him in power have been strengthened by Hugo Chávez. Now the “revolution within the revolution” will be tested. In 30 days there will be an election and former vice president, now interim president, Nicolas Maduro will likely challenge the conservative candidate Chávez defeated.
If the United States and the oligarchs think the death of Chávez means the end of the Bolivarian Revolution he led, they are in for a disappointment. This revolution, which is not limited to Venezuela, is likely to show to itself and the world that it is deep and strong. The people-powered transformation with which Chávez was in solidarity will continue.

The flashmobs, pranks, parties, and stunts were organised using the now established motor of spontaneous political activism – social networking sites Facebook and Twitter
The country is prosperous and well-run bureaucratically. The caretaker Leterme government has just accomplished a smooth and much-praised presidency of the European Union.
So does it matter?

Vaya con Dios, Hugo Chàvez, mi Amigo
Tuesday, March 5, 2013
By Greg Palast for Vice Magazine

For BBC Television, Palast met several times with Hugo Chàvez, who passed away today 5th March.
As a purgative for the crappola fed to Americans about Chavez, my foundation, The Palast Investigative Fund, is offering the film, The Assassination of Hugo Chavez, as a FREE download. Based on my several meetings with Chavez, his kidnappers and his would-be assassins, filmed for BBC Television. DVDs also available.
Reverend Pat Robertson said,
“Hugo Chavez thinks we’re trying to assassinate him. I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it.”
It was 2005 and Robertson was channeling the frustration of George Bush’s State Department.
Despite Bush’s providing intelligence, funds and even a note of congratulations to the crew who kidnapped Chavez (we’ll get there), Hugo remained in office, reelected and wildly popular.
But why the Bush regime’s hate, hate, HATE of the President of Venezuela?
Reverend Pat wasn’t coy about the answer: It’s the oil.
“This is a dangerous enemy to our South controlling a huge pool of oil.”
A really BIG pool of oil. Indeed, according to Guy Caruso, former chief of oil intelligence for the CIA, Venezuela hold a recoverable reserve of 1.36 trillion barrels, that is, a whole lot more than Saudi Arabia.
If we didn’t kill Chavez, we’d have to do an “Iraq” on his nation. So the Reverend suggests,
“We don’t need another $200 billion war….It’s a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with.”
Chavez himself told me he was stunned by Bush’s attacks: Chavez had been quite chummy with Bush Senior and with Bill Clinton.
So what made Chavez suddenly “a dangerous enemy”? Here’s the answer you won’t find in The New York Times:
Just after Bush’s inauguration in 2001, Chavez’ congress voted in a new “Law of Hydrocarbons.” Henceforth, Exxon, British Petroleum, Shell Oil and Chevron would get to keep 70% of the sales revenues from the crude they sucked out of Venezuela. Not bad, considering the price of oil was rising toward $100 a barrel.
But to the oil companies, which had bitch-slapped Venezeula’s prior government into giving them 84% of the sales price, a cut to 70% was “no bueno.” Worse, Venezuela had been charging a joke of a royalty – just one percent – on “heavy” crude from the Orinoco Basin. Chavez told Exxon and friends they’d now have to pay 16.6%.
Clearly, Chavez had to be taught a lesson about the etiquette of dealings with Big Oil.
On April 11, 2002, President Chavez was kidnapped at gunpoint and flown to an island prison in the Caribbean Sea. On April 12, Pedro Carmona, a business partner of the US oil companies and president of the nation’s Chamber of Commerce, declared himself President of Venezuela – giving a whole new meaning to the term, “corporate takeover.”
U.S. Ambassador Charles Shapiro immediately rushed down from his hilltop embassy to have his picture taken grinning with the self-proclaimed “President” and the leaders of the coup d’état.
Bush’s White House spokesman admitted that Chavez was, “democratically elected,” but, he added, “Legitimacy is something that is conferred not by just the majority of voters.” I see.
With an armed and angry citizenry marching on the Presidential Palace in Caracas ready to string up the coup plotters, Carmona, the Pretend President from Exxon returned his captive Chavez back to his desk within 48 hours. (How? Get The Assassination of Hugo Chavez, the film, expanding on my reports for BBC Television. You can download it for free for the next few days.)
Chavez had provoked the coup not just by clawing back some of the bloated royalties of the oil companies. It’s what he did with that oil money that drove Venezuela’s One Percent to violence.
In Caracas, I ran into the reporter for a TV station whose owner is generally credited with plotting the coup against the president. While doing a publicity photo shoot, leaning back against a tree, showing her wide-open legs nearly up to where they met, the reporter pointed down the hill to the “ranchos,” the slums above Caracas, where shacks, once made of cardboard and tin, where quickly transforming into homes of cinder blocks and cement.
“He [Chavez] gives them bread and bricks, so they vote for him, of course.” She was disgusted by “them,” the 80% of Venezuelans who are negro e indio (Black and Indian)—and poor. Chavez, himself negro e indio, had, for the first time in Venezuela’s history, shifted the oil wealth from the privileged class that called themselves “Spanish,” to the dark-skinned masses.
While trolling around the poor housing blocks of Caracas, I ran into a local, Arturo Quiran, a merchant seaman and no big fan of Chavez. But over a beer at his kitchen table, he told me,
“Fifteen years ago under [then-President] Carlos Andrés Pérez, there was a lot of oil money in Venezuela. The ‘oil boom’ we called it. Here in Venezuela there was a lot of money, but we didn’t see it.”
But then came Hugo Chavez, and now the poor in his neighborhood, he said, “get medical attention, free operations, x-rays, medicines; education also. People who never knew how to write now know how to sign their own papers.”
Chavez’ Robin Hood thing, shifting oil money from the rich to the poor, would have been grudgingly tolerated by the US. But Chavez, who told me, “We are no longer an oil colony,” went further…too much further, in the eyes of the American corporate elite.
Venezuela had landless citizens by the millions – and unused land by the millions of acres tied up, untilled, on which a tiny elite of plantation owners squatted. Chavez’ congress passed in a law in 2001 requiring untilled land to be sold to the landless. It was a program long promised by Venezuela’s politicians at the urging of John F. Kennedy as part of his “Alliance for Progress.”
Plantation owner Heinz Corporation didn’t like that one bit. In retaliation, Heinz closed its ketchup plant in the state of Maturin and fired all the workers. Chavez seized Heinz’ plant and put the workers back on the job. Chavez didn’t realize that he’d just squeezed the tomatoes of America’s powerful Heinz family and Mrs. Heinz’ husband, Senator John Kerry, now U.S. Secretary of State.
Or, knowing Chavez as I do, he didn’t give a damn.
Chavez could survive the ketchup coup, the Exxon “presidency,” even his taking back a piece of the windfall of oil company profits, but he dangerously tried the patience of America’s least forgiving billionaires: The Koch Brothers.
How? Well, that’s another story for another day. [Watch this space. Or read about it in the book, Billionaires & Ballot Bandits. Go to BallotBandits.org).

Elected presidents who annoy Big Oil have ended up in exile—or coffins: Mossadegh of Iran after he nationalized BP’s fields (1953), Elchibey, President of Azerbaijan, after he refused demands of BP for his Caspian fields (1993), President Alfredo Palacio of Ecuador after he terminated Occidental’s drilling concession (2005).
“It’s a chess game, Mr. Palast,” Chavez told me. He was showing me a very long, and very sharp sword once owned by Simon Bolivar, the Great Liberator. “And I am,” Chavez said, “a very good chess player.”
In the film The Seventh Seal, a medieval knight bets his life on a game of chess with the Grim Reaper. Death cheats, of course, and takes the knight. No mortal can indefinitely outplay Death who, this week, Chavez must know, will checkmate the new Bolivar of Venezuela.
But in one last move, the Bolivarian grandmaster played a brilliant endgame, naming Vice-President Nicolas Maduro, as good and decent a man as they come, as heir to the fight for those in the “ranchos.” The One Percent of Venezuela, planning on Chavez’s death to return them the power and riches they couldn’t win in an election, are livid with the choice of Maduro.
Chavez sent Maduro to meet me in my downtown New York office back in 2004. In our run-down detective digs on Second Avenue, Maduro and I traded information on assassination plots and oil policy.
Even then, Chavez was carefully preparing for the day when Venezuela’s negros e indios would lose their king—but still stay in the game.

Class war on a chessboard. Even in death, I wouldn’t bet against Hugo Chavez.

HUGO CHAVEZ AN INSPIRATION FOR AN INDEPENDANT SCOTLAND
Scotland for Chavez
Colonial status won’t allow the Scots government to send a representative to Chavez funeral. But presumably they can send someone “privately” if we get up a private subscription to cover the travel costs? How about it Alec?

BUT THE WORLD NOW QUESTIONS THE CONVENIENT DEATH OF HUGO CHAVEZ AND THE CONVENIENT ILLNESSES OF THE OTHER ANTI-IMPERIALIST SOUTH AMERICAN SOCIAL LIBERTARIANS

Russian Leader Demands Investigation of Chavez’ Death
Infowars – by Paul Joseph Watson

Russian Communist Party head Gennady Zyuganov today demanded an international investigation into the death of Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, claiming it was “far from a coincidence” that six leaders of Latin-American countries who had criticized the U.S. simultaneously fell ill with cancer.
“How did it happen that six leaders of Latin American countries which had criticized US policies and tried to create an influential alliance in order to be independent and sovereign states, fell ill simultaneously with the same disease?” Zyuganov told Russian state television, urging an investigation under “international control” into Chavez’s death.
Zyuganov is accurate so far as his claim that six Latin-American leaders were diagnosed with cancer within a relatively close period of time, most notably Argentina’s President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, who was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in December 2012, although later analysis proved that she had never actually suffered from the illness.
Current Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, Paraguay’s Fernando Lugo, and the former Brazilian leader Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, have all been hit with cancer in the last few years. In 2006 it was also reported that retired Cuban leader Fidel Castro was also diagnosed with cancer.
Zyuganov’s comments follow similar rhetoric by Venezuelan Vice President Madurs, who in the hours before the announcement of Chavez’ death accused “the historical enemies of our homeland” of being responsible for Chavez’ cancer, claiming that Yasser Arafat had also been “inoculated with an illness.”
Hugo Chavez himself once speculated that the United States had a cancer weapon after being diagnosed with the disease in 2011. “Would it be so strange that they’ve invented the technology to spread cancer and we won’t know about it for 50 years?” he stated.
“Fidel [Castro] always told me, ‘Chávez take care. These people have developed technology. You are very careless. Take care what you eat, what they give you to eat … a little needle and they inject you with I don’t know what,’ Chavez added.
The fact that Chavez was almost certainly the target of numerous CIA assassination plots has bolstered the belief amongst some that his cancer could have been surreptitiously induced as a means of unseating Chavez from power, successfully achieving what a 2002 coup failed to accomplish.

BUT OF COURSE A WAR MIGHT JUST BE THE POLITICAL SOLUTION
REMEMBER GOVERNMENTS START WARS
PEOPLE FIGHT WARS
PEOPLE PAY FOR WARS
POLITIONS PROFIT FROM WARS

I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its stupidity.

Excerpt from “The Chance for Peace Address,” April 16, 1953:

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.
This world in arms is not spending money alone.
It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some fifty miles of concrete pavement. We pay for a single fighter plane with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people.
This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.

“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
