Within the pre-existing paradigm a huge disparity exists between the rich and poor, an exploited and under-served under class, where the planet is being raped for the benefit of a few elite. I’m not a facetious yobbo that is out to negate everything. To me, it’s not just some peripheral thing that I turn up occasionally to report on. No, no. This has been happening for millenia. It’s not working and it needs fixing. People are crying out for it and our leaders are denying it. I mean, you shouldn’t be a politician unless you’ve had at least one job. People are fed up with posturing pollies. They lie, cheat and support their banking/corporate bud’s right in front of us. The cheek! Just goes to show what they think of the public. Contempt, is a word that comes to mind.Each day, we hear of another corruption scandal, somewhere around the globe. It fascinates me that the ones at the top are being busted for corporate illegalities, while the ones at the bottom for crimes against humanity; crimes of passion. It seems to me that in these troubled times, the ones at the top can’t handle the responsibilities and pressures of handling copious amounts of buckaroonies. Once you get to the top of the heap, you feel like you are beyond the law, you take your eyes off the ball and fall. The ones at the bottom…they kill one another for lacking financial security; a basic and dignified means of living. The ones in the middle pretend nothing’s happening and don’t want to rock the boat…don’t want to lose their jobs and investments…and…kinda rightly so?The basic tenet, that humans aren’t built for this kind of lifestyle [both top and bottom], holds water, in fact we have been led up the proverbial path, sneakily and to the point that any undoing will be massive and on a grand scale. But take for instance a journalist. Journalists these days have been shut down from on high. The elite own all media outlets. Is this why journalists don’t research and report independently, just plagiarise, write boring irrelevant pieces, PERIOD!..or the potential whistle-blower, that sees corruption but takes on that famous adage “hear no evil, see no evil”…for fear of recrimination, even with those safeguards in place? There is no other time in history, but now for the need of information disclosure and to see behind the veil of secrecy and to see the why’s, who’s and how’s that make the world as it is…and…those responsible to be brought to justice. Food Democracy – this is our food we are talking about, not some frivolous thought. We need not be reminded that Food is what keeps us alive, but not just alive but healthy. Packaged food’s aren’t foods. Yes, they have nutrients but lack life force. I throw away limp carrots etc. Here is a link…please sign it if you believe in food democracy below.
