Nuggets

The nuggets below thoroughly expose the waste within a market economy functioning within property rights law, as applied to nature’s resources and technologies, denying others their rightful share of what nature offers to all for free.

The 2nd most important link is, The simplicity of eliminating poverty and war will stun you.

♦As this first nugget is the leading edge of our current research, we would like to hear from those who can expand upon these perceptions.

Early corporations burned all the spice trees they could not control so as to maintain the high price of spices.

Modern corporations controlled America’s foreign policy, Destroying the farming industry of poor countries through selling highly-subsidized, thus low-priced, grains to undeveloped nations.

Under their self-designed monopolization of the world’s food supply, those corporations doubled, tripled, and even quadrupled their grain prices as food supplies grew scarcer.

Under this monopoly structure, specifically designed to suck the wealth out of nations, hundreds of millions now face starvation.

As these people–helpless within the corporate controlled world structure–die, the capitalized value of the appropriated wealth (profits) of the designers of this death trap multiply by many times.

Their hundreds of millions of appropriated wealth becomes hundreds of billions, those entitled to a secure food supply die, and both catastrophes are due to the Plunder by Trade System and the property rights structure put in place the past 700 plus years, denying others their proper share of what nature offers to all for free.

This was all done under the cover word “privatization” which the power brokers’ perception managers have taught us is a good thing.

They get away with these outright frauds because advancing technology is so efficient those same powerbrokers and perception managers are able to distribute half the potential gains of technology while retaining massive capitalized unearned profits.

Immense as those unearned profits are, they are only a fraction of the gains in living standards denied the world through the 50% of full potential never realized because technology is monopolized.

How can a nation or region attain security so as to avoid starvation and poverty as faced by 100s of millions today due to intentional destruction of the viability of local farmers (their higher priced food was unsaleable) and corporate control of world food supplies?

First they must establish local permaculture and abandon corporate control of food supplies. Through abandoning corporate control of food supplies, Malawi has gone from famine to being an exporter of food. We trust she will realize permaculture will permit her to grow even more food, maintain adequate food supplies for centuries, and continually increase top soil in the process.

Immediate gains are far greater. Local farmers growing and marketing Malawi’s food spent that money within the community, that money continued to circulate providing both food and other needs throughout the population. This is the well known multiplier factor and that economic multiplier is the economic health of a nation.

Plants providing thread for cloth such as hemp are among the most prolific in the world. So permaculture can be expanded to produce fiber for clothes and exotic threads made from oil or coal is not resource intensive enough to threaten the environment. The economic multiplier again expands the well-being of the nation.

Houses built from rammed earth or rock with ceramic interiors that will last for centuries is also a local industry. Again the economic multiplier is at work creating a well-fed, well-clothed, well-housed industrious citizenry.

Within those two local industries, permaculture and housing, are the essentials of a secure society, food, fiber, and shelter. When regional soils are used with attention to protection of nature’s wealth, these necessities of life are not intense consumers of resources.

With no one claiming or receiving unearned wealth (the monopoly structure just abandoned), money within this secure social structure represents use values (real values) which are labor values plus rental values of nature’s resources and technologies distributed to all through those rental values funding essential social needs. Taxes disappear and social infrastructure, health care, retirement, governments, and more are all funded from those natural flows of money.

We document thoroughly that over half our wealth is ground up within the superstructures of our monopoly system. We then document that an equal amount is wasted in plunders by trade and war. We are now demonstrating that another large share is wasted through the massive sums of unearned wealth being spent on resource intensive endeavors which primarily just structure our time and supports our egos.

And all this is built on, and made possible, by our vaunted freedom to travel. As shown above, caring for basic needs is quite easily managed in a social restructure that avoids the theft of others’ wealth by monopolization, the result is disappearance of the ethereal world of high finance, and the elimination of war

The further waste within the wealthy world which is consuming a further share of the world’s wealth is running uptown for hamburgers, shopping till they drop, having houses full of clothes and shoes that are seldom–or never–worn, kids with closets stuffed with toys they never play with, there are trips overseas, cruises, annual vacations, and on and on. The list of what a modern society is titillated with as they exercise their freedom to travel is endless and very resource and energy intensive.

At Aptera Electric Typ-1 e – Video Test Drive, you can watch a video of a 300 mile per gallon, three wheeled, two seat, 90mph, Aptera gas-electric hybrid car, that requires less than 20% the labor and resources to build as today’s average car. Beyond the computer, which is not a necessity, everything in that car was on the shelf, available for purchase, 40 years ago.

On short drives it runs on electricity alone up to 120 miles, is charged each night, and uses no gas on those short runs. Battery capacity has already been proven (120 miles on one charge), car battery efficiency has always been maximized, somewhere under 20 such batteries in series is surely adequate (golf carts use only six), and the market has already priced that storage capacity at $2000. And higher capacity batteries are being developed. So batteries being too expensive is fiction. Simply crank up to mass production of higher capacity batteries specifically designed for cars and the price will be reasonable.

With a lifespan, double that of today’s cars (There is no drive train, the small engine runs only on long trips, and fiberglass bodies are easily repaired) means people throughout the world could have been driving this very cheap, almost pollution free, car the past 40 years.

Four passenger diesel cars now getting 65 mpg, and five passenger gas electric hybrids getting 150 mpg now for sale again tells us that technology was not what was keeping efficient cars off the road. It was a combination of selfish search for unearned profits and conspicuous consumption spending those unearned profits.

The efficiencies of a market economy within today’s property rights law, as applied to nature’s resources and technologies, denying others their proper share of what nature offers to all for free, are fiction. The world was sold BMWs, expensive SUVs, pickups and other big cars because companies earned $8,000 apiece on them, only $1,000 on small cars (these statistics on the evening news demonstrating and discussing this car), and could not have earned over $500 on this little gas electric run-a-round.

Ditto for much else of what is sold within the so-called developed world. You can pay $700 for a pair of shoes that cost $3 to produce and ship. Even the cheapest priced shoes, which to me looked much better than that $700 pair I looked at, will cost $40 while an efficient economy could distribute it for $15.

Those high prices are due to the monopolization process compounded by promotional, persuasive, titillating advertising and further compounded be a society trained to conspicuous consumption. Not only did our property rights laws as applied to nature’s resources and technologies denying others their proper share of what she offers to all for free evolve out of aristocratic law, so did our system of conspicuous consumption identity.

This exposes the true costs of modern societies, freedom to go anywhere and do anything one wants. Most industries beyond food, fiber, and shelter are built to sustain those freedoms even though the most important needs for a fulfilling life, food, fiber, shelter, family and friends, are near that home.

If all are to share in freedom as understood within the wealthy world, pleasure travels must be rationally spaced. Through equal pay for equally productive labor, a sharing of truly productive jobs (two to three days per week once once the current waste within the economy is eliminated), and a culture of family, friends, and cheap transportation accomplishes that spacing.

A thirty mile local commute would plug in at night and charge for 30 cents. With under 20% the resources and labor to build and a lifespan of twice today’s cars, both local and regional travel could have been affordable, relatively non polluting, and in place the past 40 years.

But equal pay for equally productive labor and a sharing of productive jobs will have eliminated conspicuous consumption and each person or family would automatically restrict their expenditures to affordable, pleasurable, trips.

Study current freedoms closely. Titillating and extravagant life styles are a major cause of pollution, resource depletion, poverty, and, in a final analysis, even wars.

This is being carried forward as we speak. Companies consisting of nothing but advertising (they have no factories) are all over the place. Their only purpose is to sell you something at a very high price that has nothing to do with your basic living needs or rational pleasures.

If you had never heard of them, you would never have felt a need for what they had to sell. Those products have common features, you do not need them, they titillate your interest, they feed the ego of you and your peers, and they are enormously expensive.

A friend’s friend bought in-style, wore-out, ragged western jeans for $100. When the friend told him about paying $5 for a nice suit at the goodwill store, the response was “And what do you think of yourself.”

In short, life styles of the middle classes within the wealthy world today is only conspicuous consumption as practiced by aristocracy and the wealthy for centuries (see http://www.storyofstuff.com/ and http://www.naturalnews.com/021872.html) for two deeper analysis’s of that process. Our conditioning to be aristocrats will be trumped by reality once all are paid equally for equally-productive labor and employed labor time is reduced to the two to three days per week necessary to provide a quality life.

♦ It is important to understand where derivatives and hedge fund monies come from. One must start after the previous financial crash which typically destroys massive sums of unearned wealth.

Here we will be challenged because entrenched wealth has a larger share of a nation’s wealth than in normal times. But entrenched wealth owners are essentially non-producers. It is the knowledge and talents of productive manager-owners and labor who rebuild a society after a financial crash. In that process, they own the largest share of increased wealth.

After a financial crash, the wealthiest keep claiming a larger and larger share of the wealth produced. In fact between 1974 and 2000 they claimed all the wealth created by efficiencies of technology, about 30% per decade, plus a part of what once went to labor. Labor was lower paid in 2002 than in 1974 while the profits of wealth increased roughly 75% and that discrepancy increased the past seven years.

Under current property rights law as applied to nature’s resources and technologies which she offers to all for free, unearned finance capital piles up ever higher. Much is exported buying up properties around the world. Much of it bids up stocks higher and ever higher. And there is still more unearned finance capital than can be safely invested. More gambling games must be devised to to absorb all that massive finance capital that has no place to be safely invested. Thus hedge funds and the derivatives market being totally zero sum games, meaning they produce no wealth, grew like mushrooms.

Before an economy can rebalance and care for everyone somewhat equally, an economy with most the money in the hands of a few must crash and destroy massive amounts of that unearned wealth. That is happening in the current, 2007-09, financial crash. Protecting their wealth and power, powerbrokers, having control of Federal Reserve policy, are pouring trillions of collars of created money at themselves.

Their intent is to halt the financial collapse and they still retain their unearned wealth. But If this financial collapse is stopped, those public funds poured at them acknowledged as a debt, oversight of financial institutions tightened, restrictive laws such as the currently withdrawn Glass Steagall act reenacted, and the accounting and legal rule that stock companies cannot exceed 12:1 debt to equity ratio enforced (it is currently anywhere from 12:1 to 70:1, Citibank’s was 280:1 when they were bailed out), those corporations will be legally bankrupt.

In short, values are continuing to fall and those debt equity (leverage) ratios double with each 50% drop in equity value. This explains why the world bubble economy collapsed so fast.

Debt is sovereign within a capitalist economy and that debt is essentially against land, buildings, machinery, etc, (tangible, labor created, values). Equity is the capitalized value of the profits which, at a 12:1 leverage, typically equals the value of land, buildings, and machinery, again tangible values.

However, when excess profits are continually made, stock prices rise far above tangible values and a 12:1leverage ratio against those phantom values can be a many times higher ratio against tangible values.

Hedge funds, derivatives, and other non-productive endeavors soak up those massive unearned funds and capitalize their values ten to thirty times. Once banked, those values represent claims against tangible, labor created, real values.

Society had been moving closer and closer to the aristocratic system from which we never really successfully evolved, a few with all the wealth, the masses in poverty, and no middle class.

The current financial and economic crash is the unwinding of that bubble of unearned profits laying claim to more and more tangible wealth leaving less and less to be divided among the rest.

The income and equity of the majority staying relatively stable during this unearned accumulation of wealth hides this process. But it all becomes visible when the imbalance becomes so great the financial house of cards collapses.

Again, if you have broad and unique frames of reference, we need your support to expand on crucial aspects of our research. In this case the ethereal world of high finance, especially hedge funds and derivatives, are there only because of massive blocks of unearned wealth, far more than can be safely invested.

♦ Our research discusses the developing world decoupling from the monopoly system of the Western world. The simplicity of eliminating poverty and war will stun you outlines theoretically the final stage of the world abandoning that wasteful and destructive system.

♦ Though it will be firmly denied, the developed world–America, Western Europe, and Japan–are an allied imperial-center-of capital. Never would they impose upon one another the structural adjustments they are enforcing upon the developing world.

In Plunder-By-Unequal-Pay for Equally-Productive Labor we address the wealth of the developing world being siphoned to the wealthy world through extreme inequality of pay for equally productive work. All wealth comes from resources and most resources are in the developing world. Yet the resource-poor imperial nations are wealthy and the resource-rich nations on the periphery of empire are poor.

The wealth of the periphery pouring into the imperial centers is explained by the simple formula high pay divided by the low pay squared. If the poor nation’s equally-productive labor is paid $1 an hour and the wealthy nation’s labor is paid $10 an hour, that is not a 10 times differential in retained wealth. It is an exponential 100 times differential.

Allowing one hour as one unit of wealth, the poorly-paid worker must work ten hours to produce one unit of wealth from the well-paid worker or nation while the well-paid worker can purchase 100 units of wealth from the poorly-paid worker or nation. Increase that pay differential to 20 times (50 cents an hour labor against $10 an hour labor) and the capital accumulation differential increases exponentially to 400 to one.

♦ If the developing world is to ever gain full rights and equality they must negotiate with the developed world for fair value for their resources and for equality in pay for equally productive work. The developed world will not want to negotiate. In defense, blocs of the developing world must ally together.

Mahatma Gandhi of India has shown how to force that negotiation. If Third world labor refuses to mine or haul that ore, cut or haul that timber, or load those ships, the developed world will have no choice but negotiate. The followers of Gandhi refused to work for the British Empire, massive suppression ensued, the labor of India still refused, British soldiers could not stomach imposing further unjust violent suppression, and Britain gave up on the pillage of India.

Once at the negotiating table, the rules for providing full rights and equality must be decided upon. Our suggestions are:

* Equal pay for equally-productive work. This gain in rights provides roughly equal buying power relative to the talents and energy expended to all who are employed.

* Sharing those productive jobs (once a region is fully developed each need work only two to three work days per week).

* Support for structuring their societies to avoid the subtle monopolizations of land, technology, finance capital, and information (seeThe simplicity of eliminating poverty and war will stun you). This will increase economic efficiency equal to the invention of money, the printing press, and electricity.

* A worldwide effort to address population issues and sustainable development up to the capacity of the earth to provide resources and the environment to absorb wastes. With the most Catholic country in the world, Italy, having a birth rate per family (1.29), Germany a birth rate of 1.51, and Japan a rate of 1.53, far below replacement levels, shows this is an attainable goal.

* The wealthy world to turn their war industries towards producing industrial technology for any nation or region of the world that agrees to eliminate terrorism and war and share their resources in trade for technology and training.

* All military weapons beyond that necessary for internal security to be turned over to the United Nations (its replacement if it cannot be reformed) or destroyed.

* The United Nations or its replacement it if it cannot be reformed, should be chartered with the responsibility of overseeing world peace.

* All unjust Third Word debts to be canceled.

* Markets should be free between regions of equal development and equal pay but managed between countries and regions unequally paid.

* Support for economically viable regions to establish their own central bank and trading currency viable only within their borders.

* A world central bank to create a currency for trades between economically viable regions and nations utilizing currency viable only within their borders.

* Through equalizing surcharges, minerals and other resources in the low-paid countries to be priced relative to mining or harvesting of those same resources or substitute commodities in the developed world. The recycling of minerals would then be profitable and renewable energy would be competitive. The consumption of the world’s oil and coal will be slower, pollution pressures will be lower, and all countries will develop faster.

* Labor values to be calculated and equalizing surcharges collected on exports and/or imports to equalize those values.

* Funds collected from these tariffs on international trade should go towards building industries and economic infrastructure in the lower-paid undeveloped nation or region and for renewable energy capitalization, developing environmentally sound products, designing and implementing ecologically sustainable lifestyles, rebuilding soils, and cleaning up and revitalizing the ecosystems of both the developing and developed worlds.

* To avoid corruption, any industry or infrastructure built with developing world money or with equalizing surcharge funds shall be built by contract. Once their own tools of production are established, these regions will be building their own industries, infrastructure, and consumer products.

* Once nations or regions are roughly equal in technology and labor roughly equally paid, surcharges should be eliminated and fair and honest free trade will flow between nations and between regions. Regional currencies viable only within their borders and a world trading currency handling trades between economically viable nations and regions should stay in force.

* A nation or region short on resources should be allotted a higher level of industrialization. (Japan provides the ideal example.) Once all nations and regions are roughly equal in world trade, equalizing surcharges should disappear but a resource depletion tax should remain to fund rebuilding soils and revitalizing the world’s ecosystems.

* As has already been successfully tested, one-year-old trees in biodegradable, aerodynamic, pointed cylinders can be planted at the rate of 800,000 trees a day per plane. Newly planted grass grows beautifully in North Africa when fenced off from goats. Technology has been developed to grow extensive ground cover in one to three years on steep, barren, infertile road cuts. So the technology is here to reforest and regenerate the earth and a resource depletion tax (higher resource rents paid to society) is the proper source of funds.

* As per The Simplicity of Eliminating Monopolization of Technology, patent laws should be restructured to pay inventors well and place patents in the public domain so all can use any technology.

*To protect everyone’s rights and freedom, the world’s intelligence services should remain operative and alert. These agencies should be mandated to cooperate in preventing terrorist attacks or wars anywhere in the world. As those intelligence services and military forces are responsible for most terrorism, that mandated change alone will eliminate most terrorism and all wars.

* The buying power for a healthy economy comes from wages paid to productive labor. Those earnings are spent for family needs and that money is spent again and again as it is passed from hand to hand to purchase necessary food, fiber, shelter, and services. Thus care must be taken by both the developed and developing world for each economically viable region to produce most of their own food (local permaculture) and consumer products and provide most of their own services.

Only a cohesive population and an allied region can peacefully obtain full rights and equality. Thus the responsibility of each of us is to alert as many as possible and organize to attain full rights and freedom.

People are good. Prove to philosophers and negotiators in the wealthy world that peace and prosperity for all is possible and many will recognize they have been misinformed and support you.

The linkThe simplicity of eliminating poverty and war will stun you demonstrates how, under these rules and taking advantage of the current financial crisis, the world can be developed to a sustainable level, poverty eliminated, and a quality life provided to all in only two generations (50 years).

♦ If one has any doubts as to how thorough perception management is, consider the 730 American Airmen shot down or crashed as they were flying sabotage and assassination teams into Byelorussia and the Ukraine and photographing territory in the heart of the Soviet federation .[1]

Much effort went into “damage control” to tone down that explosive story. In later documentaries and feature articles, the admission of over 730 airmen lost over the Soviet Union was downgraded to 130, but, knowing they had been deceived once, each documentary noted the story might be much bigger.

A few years after the exposure of the air assaults on the Soviet Union, a military spokesman in a news interview said, “Americans would be surprised if they knew how many airmen had been lost over the Soviet Union and China.” A documentary on the subject of the downed pilots showed their routes over the Baltic Sea and claimed all planes veered off before going over Soviet territory.

That falsification of history, telling a part of the story as the full story and ignoring the major story of over 10 thousand flights into the heart of that besieged nation, required both a careful selection of facts by the Pentagon and a cooperative producer.

Even as Western citizens were being brought to near hysteria that they were under dire threat of attack, there were no planes from either Eastern Europe or the Soviet Union flying towards the West with teams trained for sabotage and assassination, or any other kind of destabilization. No politician of substantial stature seriously believed the Soviets were going to attack anyone and we document that most emerging countries throughout the world were under attack from the West.

♦ Damage control was exercised again when CNN and Time magazine spent two years documenting over 20 instances of the use of nerve gas by Americans in Vietnam, at times against defecting U.S. Soldiers. The story, Operation Tailwind, due to be aired and printed in July 1998, was withdrawn, senior editors who stood by their story were fired, others demoted or chastised, and the story was successfully suppressed. That surfacing of true history was quickly erased from history. When such revelations threaten to get into the mainstream media they cannot be permitted to stand.

How is it that such dynamite news is never heard or read in main stream news? Whenever the powerful are challenged, the longstanding tradition of the owners of newspapers backing their editors and editors backing their reporters, at least we have always been told it is so, is blown out the window. Witness reporter Ray Bonner’s banishment to obscurity by the New York Times for exposing the El Mozote massacre by U.S.-trained soldiers in El Salvador; Robert Parry’s departure from Newsweek after “path-breaking work on the Iran-Contra scandal”; The San Jose Mercury News retraction of its exposure of CIA involvement in drug trafficking and subsequent resignation of its star reporter, Gary Webb; and James Fallows’ disappearance from U.S. News & World Report for trying to insert a little reality into that publication. This author was especially appreciative of James Fallows’ writings and wondered how his broad and sensible view of the world could ever be tolerated at U.S. News. It wasn’t.

♦ And if all we have documented to this point is not enough to prove the West was never under threat of a military attack, that the managers of state knew this well, and that there was no need for intelligence agencies to alert the West about any such attack, consider this: Immediately after WW II, U.S. intelligence co-opted Switzerland’s Crypto-Ag, and other encryption companies, to obtain the codes to the most secure encryption machines sold to nations all over the world. With these codes, U.S. intelligence officials read the most secret messages of most nations, friend and foe, as easily as they might read the morning newspaper.[2] The National Security Administration’s ECHELON listens in on almost every electronic conversation in the world. Its computers are keyed to detect key words and phrases and divert all communications with those words to be looked at. Important sources and destinations have all incoming and outgoing communications checked. American intelligence services and managers of state not only knew well there was no planned attack, they knew how weak and defenseless against the full power of the West these besieged people really were.[3]

Assassinations and covert actions were the least of what interested the West as they read other nations’ mail; they were responsible for most of them anyway. The economic plans of those nations were their primary interest. Playing the high-stakes diplomatic poker game of international trade with a mirror behind everyone’s back gave the United States an insurmountable advantage in trade negotiations. They knew the most intimate secrets of nonaligned nations attempting to ally together to develop their industries and internal economies.

Few of those nations had any intention of allying their economies with the Soviet federation. Although a nation embargoed by the West would be forced to trade with other unallied nations, their goal was freedom to control their resources and economies and trade freely with any nation. By 1998, long after the Cold War was over, 70 countries, 66% of the people on earth, were under some form of American embargo or sanction.[4] Control of trade hides behind a rhetorical cover of human rights abuses. If a nation is recalcitrant, those human rights abuses—fictional or actual—provide the legitimacy for sanctions, destabilizations, and wars.

Though hundreds of billions of dollars were spent to destabilize emerging nations, funds can no longer be found to rebuild these shattered economies. It took over 50 years, trillions of dollars, and many millions killed to contain and destabilize the Soviet federation. Without development funds and without access to technology and markets, the weak were again relegated to providing cheap commodities and labor to imperial centers of capital.

But that did not last long. The developing world now knows America has suppressed their bid for freedom the past 60 years. They understand the purpose was to control their resources and the wealth producing process, they understand the alliance of wealthy nations to maintain the theft of their wealth, and today (2006-09) they are allying together with the intent of successfully breaking free and gaining control of their resources and their destiny.

♦ Knowledge on how perception management works in the world’s so-called “free” press is sobering. The post 9-11 Patriot Act is a recreation of Germany’s post Reichstag fire Enabling Act under which Hitler established fascism and took all rights away from, and jailed and executed, targeted people. Entire ethnic groups are targeted in both cases, databases of potential enemies are created, those enemies are watched by newly reorganized or newly created internal intelligence services, communications are monitored, neighbors are asked to report on neighbors, people have disappeared with—as of this writing—no rights to lawyers, and torture of suspects is openly discussed.[5] We must remember that the overwhelming masses of the German citizens during WW II were not targeted. Instead they were told it was they who were under threat. It was not until fascism was defeated that the excesses and abuses of other people, very similar to the abuses of other societies and other cultures we are addressing, were exposed.

However, powerbrokers’ cover stories for their Iraqi war plans are in tatters. The Washington Post and the New York Times have admitted they were wrong in carrying the messages of this “echo chamber” without challenge, and over 70% of Americans are aware of the deceptions. If the mainstream news ever gets the courage to tell the American people the truth about the outright lies justifying current and past wars, there would be an earthquake change in both the American government and the media. Our fingers are crossed that those changes will begin with President Barack Obama.

Without having read our research, in Banana Republicans: How the Right Wing is Turning America into a One-Party State by Sheldon Rampton & John Stauber expands upon this work. As of its writing, corporations and the hard right had firm control of what the American people believe. To understand that control, this is a must read. Pay special attention to pages 4-5 on how the hard right coordinates their perception management which pours out simultaneously over their media channels, especially Fox News and hard-right radio talk shows. This misinformation reverberates back and forth through this “echo chamber” to become the firm beliefs of the nation. Run a Google search using the keywords “Fred Goldstein, Abramoff, Thieves fall out” to follow more of that story. Again, the massive errors of the GW Bush presidency has awakened the American people and this is changing.

Perception management, which is what is going on in the above descriptions of current events being grotesquely reported, has been practiced for centuries. Those who consider themselves “liberal” are actually held well to the right of the political spectrum. Even a large share of the so-called left do not realize how far away from reality society is kept so as to protect wealth and power. The few who do see that reality gap are voiceless. So there is no left in Western political culture. Again, that is changing and many once silenced voices are being heard.

There is only a voiceless few who see ­or at least suspect ­that reality gap, a small center, a right and an extreme right. Between them, the right and extreme right have had firm control of the policies of Western nations and just as firm a control of society’s belief system. President George W Bush’s blunder in blindly following the neocons’ long held plans for rapid fire regime changes across the world carried out both covertly and openly by the military has woke up the complacent population. Where throughout the Cold War an honest analysis was hard to find, today hundreds of great books are published by the mainstream press and they are selling by the tens of thousands.

Enough of the population now has enough of a view of how violent and dangerous this culture is that plans for fascist control of the populations (the Patriot Act, permissive surveillance laws, and much more) have been placed into law. We have yet to find out if President Barack Obama will reverse these moves towards full fledged Fascism. These are some of the most historic moments in history.

♦ The violent and powerful who carry out corporate policies, such as described above, are good citizens, good neighbors, good husbands, and good parents who kiss their children when they put them to bed. But their loyalty is to their wealth or the wealthy who put them in power. They do not expand their view of rights to include all people. Their day of reckoning is coming. African and South American nations are uncovering the abandoned records of American organized and orchestrated death squads and the destabilizations of these countries is now understood. Not only have 1.2 million innocent Iraqis (and still counting) died but their cancer and birth defect rates due to depleted uranium contamination has increased up to seven times and is due to rise higher.

Depleted uranium inhalation is not only a sentence of death it damages the genes, spouses become infected, and their genes also damaged. Iraqi children are playing in that depleted uranium dust and it has been estimated that almost the entire gene pool of Iraq will eventually be destroyed. Those yet undamaged will intermarry with those who are damaged and over a period of three generations or so most Iraqis will be defective to the extent they will not dare have children. It won’t take long. Depleted uranium dust is blowing all around Iraqi population centers, its half life is 4.5 billion years (the age of the earth), and soon the genes of all Iraqis will be destroyed. Likewise, the gene quality of tens of thousands, possibly 100s of thousands, of American soldiers have been destroyed, their children are being born with the same weird defomaties as Iraqis, and their wives are coming down with depleted uranium symptoms.

That story will not be kept off mainstream news forever. South America is breaking free as we speak, Africa will not be far behind, these countries will be writing the honest history of imperialism, and they will be placing those imperial leaders on the docks of national courts and world courts charged with the worst war crimes in history. Few will dare set foot outside the borders of their home country and in some countries they will not be safe there. Those trials have already been successfully held in South America, the histories are being thoroughly documented, and it is only a matter of time when the planners of all these horrors, at least some of the leadership of the imperial centers, will be put on trial. This is already happening in Argentina, Chile, and a few other countries.

Examples of university classes that are only justifications for a system of theft: The final year of his doctorate at the School of Law and Business at James Cook University in Australia, Mako Kuwimb of Papua, New Guinea asked us to explain two puzzling economic theories he had been taught.

1. The Natural Resource Curse Thesis. “Resource-rich developing countries are cursed by virtue of their rich resource endowment, compared to resource-poor countries like Singapore, Taiwan and South Korea, which have developed rapidly because they are not cursed.” These countries are advised to follow neo-liberal prescriptions to wealth which are the exact opposite of how every successful nation developed as we have outlined in From Plunder by Raids to Plunder by Trade and other articles and in Protection for the Imperial Centers, Free Trade for the Periphery of Empire.

2. We Quote Mako: “There is a theory called pyramid regulation theory which allows mining companies to become regulators and operators at the same time. Perhaps you might have some ideas on this. World Bank has funded reforms in the PNG mining sector where laws have been passed to allow the country’s mining advisory board to be run by institutions controlled by mining companies not only to process and issue mining licenses, but also to regulate their operations and enforce the environmental regulations themselves.

This is weird and I wonder where that idea came from.”

Our reply: “The fact that you ask that question proves your mind is not yet free of the chains put on it through Western universities. It was not an idea, it was a plan. Once you realize that both classical economics and neoliberal economics were specifically designed to appropriate the wealth of the politically weak both within internal economies and in world trade, then think of the thousands of hours you have spent trying to understand our economics.

Every one of those hours except skills like math and the hard sciences, were hours spent controlling your perception. Now think how fast you would have gone through those classes if you knew those concepts were frauds, glanced at them, analyzed how they were designed to control your mind, not free it, and you would have handed them the answers they wanted and used your new free time to find honest answers. Then think of how easy it would have been and how far down the road of knowledge you would be if you had been taught honest history and honest economics.”

Those crucial 170 words describing an honest, efficient, capitalist economy. Does anyone have the ear of President Barack Obama’s Economic Recovery Team?

The CIA uses many methods for plausible denial. For example: Inter-Arms was established by ex-career CIA agent Samuel Cummings was supposedly separated from the CIA to establish the world’s largest small arms dealership, Inter-Arms Incorporated, a plausibly deniable conduit for weapons shipments anywhere in the world. With an established arms conduit for covert actions, and a record of serial numbers of other sales so intelligence agencies could keep track of who was using those arms, one would be in deep denial if they thought Cummings was really independent of the CIA.

[3] The lead article in CovertAction Quarterly, Fall 2002, is titled “Imperial Wizard: Soros is not just doling out cash­he’s fleecing entire countries,” by Heather Cottin. This is a must-read for serious researchers on how propaganda works. While being portrayed, and portraying himself as a great philanthropist, George Soros is obviously working closely with the IMF, the World Bank, the National Endowment for Democracy, and many other offshoots of American intelligence to subvert the economies of entire nations. He then picks up prime assets for pennies on the dollar. There has to be many others in on that blatant fleecing of the weak impoverished world.

The final year of his doctorate at the School of Law and Business at James Cook University in Australia, Mako Kuwimb of Papua, New Guinea asked us to explain two puzzling economic theories he had been taught.

1. The Natural Resource Curse Thesis. “Resource-rich developing countries are cursed by virtue of their rich resource endowment, compared to resource-poor countries like Singapore, Taiwan and South Korea, which have developed rapidly because they are not cursed.” These countries are advised to follow neo-liberal prescriptions to wealth which are the exact opposite of how every successful nation developed as we have outlined throughout Parts I and II.

2. We Quote Mako: “There is a theory called pyramid regulation theory which allows mining companies to become regulators and operators at the same time. Perhaps you might have some ideas on this. World Bank has funded reforms in the PNG mining sector where laws have been passed to allow the country’s mining advisory board to be run by institutions controlled by mining companies not only to process and issue mining licenses, but also to regulate their operations and enforce the environmental regulations themselves.

This is weird and I wonder where that idea came from.”

Our reply: “The fact that you ask that question proves your mind is not yet free of the chains put on it through Western universities. It was not an idea, it was a plan. Once you realize that both classical economics and neoliberal economics were specifically designed to appropriate the wealth of the weak, both within internal economies and in world trade, then think of the thousands of hours you have spent trying to understand our economics. Every one of those hours except skills like math etc, the hard sciences, were hours spent controlling your perception. Now think how fast you would have gone through those classes if you knew those books were frauds, glanced at them, analyzed how they were designed to control your mind, not free it, and you would have handed them the answers they wanted and used your new free time to find those honest answers. Then think of how easy it would have been and how far down the road of knowledge you would be if you had been taught honest history and honest economics.”
