“Only after the last tree has been cut down, Only after the last river has been poisoned, Only after the last fish has been caught, Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten”. Cree Indian Prophecy
The 1776 Declaration of Independence stated that when a long train of abuses by those in power evidence a design to reduce the rights of people to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, it is the peoples right, in fact their duty to engage in a revolution.
and ….. JFK in his own words !
In a speech to the Newspaper Publishers Association in 1961, President Kennedy said:
“No president should fear public scrutiny of his program, for from that scrutiny comes understanding, and from that understanding comes support or opposition; and both are necessary. . . . Without debate, without criticism, no administration and no country can succeed, and no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian law makers once decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press was protected by the First Amendment.”
Abraham Lincoln said, just before his assassination:
I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country...Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money-power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed."
In a raid seeking information related to Israel's Iron Dome missile defense system, Chinese hackers infiltrated the databases of three Jewish defense contractors.

Governments do not dictate major policy, major multinational corporations do. We've seen this time and time again, and one of the best examples out there is Monsanto.

Scientific evidence refuting the theory of modern humanity's African genesis is common knowledge among those familiar with the most recent scientific papers on the human Genome, Mitochondrial DNA and Y-chromosomes.

Vietnam's failure to counter China's months-long placement of an oil rig in disputed waters with any meaningful gesture threatens the Hanoi government's legitimacy.

At some stage in recent history, governments started to outsource operational aspects of geopolitical strategy to gangs of robbers, murderers and nutcases - Washington in Afghanistan to oppose Russia, Russia in Ukraine now are just two examples - and are increasingly abrogating greater responsibilities to them.

No Arab State has had the guts to denounce Israel's use of "made-in-the-USA" death machines to rain hellfire on the civilian population of Gaza. Arab autocrats, viewing the world through their concern over how they can continue to cling to power, are too scared for the survival of their regimes to proffer any daring proposals to resolve the Pa […]
The destruction in Gaza is overwhelming as the loss of life has climbed during nearly three weeks of battle. Historical inevitability makes it unlikely that the people of the strip will surrender. With even a quick scan of decades of war, it can be said with conviction that Israel cannot possibly subdue Gaza. - Ramzy Baroud (Jul 28, '14)
Author T V Paul adds to the numerous unflattering descriptions of Pakistan with his depiction of a "warrior state" whose security forces have outgrown all other institutions and activities and where radical Islamization and its attendant obscurantism have been the consequences of state policy.

Much finger pointing has occurred on the downing of Malaysia flight MH-17 over separatist-held territory in Ukraine.

When the Soviet Union imploded in 1991, the United States – and its junior partners in Europe – found itself bereft of an enemy.

Time does funny things to a lot of photographs. Rather than give them a sense of nostalgia, time too often makes them look silly. Open a magazine from, say, 1975 and look at the advertisements.

Kriege werden seit spätestens Mitte des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts unter falschen Vorwänden geführt und tatsächlich ist ein größerer Plan dahinter, bei dem immer die geschäftlichen Interessen eine Hauptrolle spielen.

Politik und Wirtschaft fordern vom EU-Botschafter-Treffen in Brüssel, schärfere Sanktionen gegen Russland zu beschließen. Unionspolitiker fordern auch eine Beschränkung der Gas-Importe zugunsten von Fracking-Gas. Wirtschaftsminister Gabriel regt an, Rüstungs-Firmen bei einem Embargo mit EU-Geldern zu entschädigen.
Das nächste Kapitel im Währungskrieg: Russland muss mit signifikanten Herabstufungen durch die US-Rating-Agenturen rechnen. Der Rubel könnte unter Druck geraten. Die Russen wollen die westliche Attacke kontern und setzen auf die chinesisch-russische Ratingagentur Dagong. Putin will die Achse Peking-Moskau gegen die Amerikaner stärken.
