I watched the film JFK to 9/11 which Aangirfan out out here. It was one of the most powerful films I have ever watched. I don't know whether all if it was correct, but finally the penny dropped about why there was so much war. It's big business and the aristocracy, or ruling class, make a fortune out of it.The libertarians believe in pure free markets, but war is the most profitable thing of all, and so pure free markets means endless wars. The commentator blames the government, which it is of course entirely to blame, but who are the government, it's the aristocracy in power, that's what. Bush, Cheney, and now, Obama, who is a puppet, are the One Percent, they are ruling elite. If the government actually represented ordinary people and was run by us, would there be as many wars, or cruel experiments done in humans? No. The majority would not allow it. Once upon a time it was only rich men that could vote, but because our aristocracy feared a revolution they unwillingly conceded to more democracy, where ordinary people finally got the vote. But when the New Deal came started in the US and many monopolies got nationalised in Europe, some of the One Percent hated it (because monopolies earned them a fortune in rent) so they supported fascism to end our democracy. And when that failed they invented libertarianism instead. Now you might think it strange that while the ruling class runs the government there would be another section of the ruling class that wanted to do away with it. But there has always been very conservative and more liberal parts of the ruling elite, as well as different factions.But also there was the middle part of the new democratic government, the bureaucracy, which was manned by intellectuals from the Middle Classes, and some of these people were in the Left parties, and some were in the media, and others were lawyers, and they became a real pain to the fascist ruling class. So the fascists decided it was time for the government to go and so they supported libertarianism to try con ordinary people out of their hard fought for democracy. Our government had been captured by the the fascist section of the ruling class, but getting rid of the government is exactly what they would love, because then the Middle Class intellectuals could thwart their power. It's the fascist section of the aristocracy that do these cruel experiments on people. It's these same people who make a fortune out of wars. We need more democratic government to throw aristocracy out of power. And we need to shift the taxes away from ordinary people and onto the landed aristocracy and their rent seeking monopolies.
1 vote every 4 four years is not a democracy - whether its rigged or not
Agreed!"If voting made a difference, they wouldn't let us do it." Mark Twain.As for money and the profit motive driving all of this? C'mon.....the people doing this own the banks, they are the royalty and dynastic families who have all the money on the planet at their disposal. The evil scum giving oatmeal to children (and far worse) use money as one of many levers to control things.
Democracy here, and in Europe, and in the US, is a sham. It seems that we can't be left alone to live in peace. I'm sitting here and it's quite nice. I'm minding my own business, troubling no one, and all I want is a simple life. But no, some rich git wants more money, that's fine, but he wants lots more money, money you can't get through hard work.He wants everything he can get his hands on. He prepared to destroy my life and everything in it: My street, my town, my city, and all the children too, and my country, and the whole of Europe, and even half the World or more if he can get even more fucking money. And when he's done it, he'll be happy, because he's got lots of money. It's all he ever wanted.
How sad, and how true.
