Economic Hitmen

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
The economic hitman has managed to create the world's first truely global empire It's basicaly a secret empire we do it many ways, but principally we identify a country that has resourses our corporations cut it like oil, range a huge loan to that country from the world bank or one of its sisters. The money never actually never goes to the country It goes to our own corporations to build big infrastructure projects in that country that help a few very wealthy people but don't benefit the majority of people who are to poor to buy electricity or have cars to drive on the highways, and your third left holding a huge debt that they can't repay. So we go back at some point and say: you know you can't pay your debts Give us a pound of flesh, sell your oil real cheap to our oil companies vote with us in the next critical UN vote, allow us to build a military base in your backyard... something along these lines and when we fail the jackals go in and either overthrow or assassinate these leaders and if the jackals fail as they did in Iraq then we send in the military I don't think the failure is capitalism, I think it's the specific kind of capitalism we've developed. We've created what I consider a mutant, viral form of capitalism and this mutant form of capitalism which I think is really a predatory form of capitalism has created an extremely unstable, unsustainable, unjust and very very dangerous world I've met a lot of terrorists, I can too give'em for books I've never met one who wanted to be a terrorist They are desperate people. If we want to get rid of terrorism we must get rid of the root causes, that cancer that is destroying the whole system cause I think it's really important that we understand today We cannot have homeland security Unless we understand that the whole planet... is our homeland
