HISTORY: Comprehension of the Present Future


 

The further one recedes into the history of global economic development and, the politics that have and continue to direct its course, the fuller one is able to comprehend the present and future, potential state of global conflict and, the factors that continue to contribute to it.

The Empire Files, an investigative journalistic News reportage exposes the crucial history of how empires of the early 19th and 20th centuries, feeding off the wealth of resources in the region of Africa now known as the Congo, can be considered responsible for present day conflict in the form of civil, regional and proxy wars.

The early meddling of Belgian monarchy with the sole purpose to exploit the resource riches of the region while publicly expressing the desire to educate and make more civil the indigenous Peoples can be reasonably projected to the rise in terrorism being experienced today.

Too, western empire nations such as the United States, Britain and France by way of clandestine, political subterfuge administered by the CIA and MI-6’s convert activity over the decades, with the sole objective of capturing and securing the wealth of resources offered by the Congolese region of Africa, can be deemed responsible for the militaristic and terroristic turmoil suffered by the Peoples of the region.

Of particular attention is the conversation up to and including the 15-min. mark referring to the democratically elected leader to the Congo; his assassination and permanent disposal of his body. A treatment procedure repeated more recently in history with the goal to stifle any potential for the future veneration of those who fought in opposition to western, economic and political interests.

The current presidential election cycle in the guise of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump are ceremoniously unveiling the corruptness of western, corporate-driven politics and the destructive influence such interests are having not only for the United States but too, the globe in general, by way of corporate driven foreign policies shaped to secure the wealth of undeveloped and developing nations by means of political subterfuge or outright military force.

The world by any standard is in upheaval and disarray: civil, regional and proxy wars throughout the Middle-East; millions of migrants fleeing the regions of strife only to be confronted by nationalistic driven xenophobia; strident financial inequality diminishing the economic influence of the middle and lower classes of all nations; obfuscation of climate change, global warming and their all to present destructive effects; etc., etc..

Not until members of the infamous 99% realize what has transpired in the past, initiated and executed by those who were politically and economically influential in achieving their greed driven enrichment, still all too present directing the course of global affairs by the hands and minds of bought and paid-for elected officials administering world governance today, will change ever see the light of day.

The outcome of the 2016 Presidential election will be a hallmark to the quality of life, for global civil-society, well into this 21st Century!

The Right to Breath

Right to Breath

Banking of Nature: An insightful and somewhat disturbing look at current financialization of earthly resources that opens the environment to speculative machinations of Wall Street with its dire reputation for the loss of trillions of dollars worth of wealth by the crash of 2008, the impact of which is still being dealt with and, now this greed machine is targeting the natural resources on which to bet.  

Watch this documentary presented by the Passionate Eye:

http://www.cbc.ca/passionateeye/episodes/banking-nature

to which I felt the need to express my distraught via the following poem:
Right To Breath

Financial machinations of white shirts and ties
Entombed in glittering glass and concrete towers
While outside, increasingly, the monetized world dies
Succumbing to insatiable greed of stolen global power

Nations stripped of resources for short-sighted economic gain
Common Peoples’ lives measurably deemed expendable
When barren, deforested land for them is all that remains
A reality scourge that is inhumane and incomprehensible

Irrational reasoning of so-called wise and learned men
Around boardroom tables devise, scheme and plot;
Their foolishness of folly questionably there to defend
When all that motivates is growth of their riches sought

Stock market speculation of all future life here on Earth
Already an experienced, proven destructive ending course
Will lead to all that is living being given its economic worth
A time when the `right to breath’ will be a financial source

World Affairs – Slowly Unravelling


crisis

Epicentre: Ground Zero – SEPTEMBER 11, 2001 a.k.a.: 911

Thanks to President George W. Bush Administration’s knee-jerk response to a planned execution to derive the response it has garnered some fifteen years later, finds the world spinning out of control in a futile attempt to counter every conceivable issue imaginable that is detrimental to the longevity of human existence on this space cycling planet.

Migration of displaced humans a.k.a.: migrants, is imposing untolled hardship on every aspect involved in the issue from the unfortunate migrants themselves, innocent ponds in the senseless and brutal conflicts imposed by out-of-touch psychopathic politicians and bureaucrats, to the innocent citizens of the countries literally being invaded by scores of men, women and their children generating purely hateful, dogmatic reactions on a scale to be considered a crime against humanity.

The following video plainly illustrates the growing, divisive issues gaining momentum as the flow of refugees from primarily African nations, who are primarily Muslim representing all strata of this faith’s beliefs. The result; it creates a two-pronged problem in the eyes of those vehemently opposed to opening their nation’s borders.

Firstly, the threat jihadist elements will be amongst the migrants raising potential for terrorist actions on their soil and second, the direct and physical assault on the civility and traditions they do not wish imposed upon.

The irony lies in what the migrant, questioned as to why Britain and not France states: `Britain is a `Kingdom’, a place where he and his family can flourish. The United States is first and Britain is second.’ This undoubtedly stems from the false and misleading propagandist imagery and rhetoric fed to poorer nations by way of international western media of every sort, now coming to bite them in the proverbial ASS!

In the meantime, the People of Greece already repressed due to unimaginable austerity measures imposed upon they and their government by the European Union principally enforced by Germany, seconded by France, are being over-run by migrant refugees attempting to escape the death and destruction in all parts of the Middle East and northern and central Africa. Though the Greek Islands are serving as a way-stop for refugees targeting Germany as their ultimate destination, here too, the local populace feels unduly pressured to morally respond to the crisis, a crisis created by leaders of other countries. An imposition difficult to accommodate even in the best of economic times.

To where this growing humanitarian crisis will ultimate lead is open to speculation, informed or otherwise but, given the timid international response to the dire state for so many and growing, the outcome in any framework of common sense knows it is not favoured to be good.
