Politicians lie to give them an excuse to go to war, because war makes money. They lied about Iraq. They’re probably lying now.
War has ALWAYS been about money. Every time.
War makes money. Media, politicians, oil, banking and the military industrial complex all make money from sending troops to die for oil. All of the above lie to send people to war.
Some people believe Trump is an activist, anti-globalist superhero who wants to “drain the swamp in Wall Street.” People are saying things like “he’s playing the long game, it’s like chess.”
So far Trump has incited war and made money for the elite like just about every president before him (including Obama.) I’m not a Democrat either, I’m not an American and I am certainly no fan of Hillary. The good candidates for the Presidency or Prime Minister usually get no press, or negative press. The successful ones are usually corporate puppets, I will not be a puppets puppet.
I hope Trump is an amazing actor and activist playing the long chess game. But that might be stretching positive thinking to incredulous levels, I shall probably have more luck placing my hopes in other ”white hat” activists behind the scenes.
Read between the lines. The deep state is still running things, still telling the same lies, the economic hit men are either creating regime change by arming rebels or by getting the media to justify invasion on moral grounds. Iraq allegedly gassed the Kurds. Syria allegedly poisoned children. The West turns a blind eye to human rights abuses LITERALLY every day, arming and supporting abuse everywhere from Saudi Arabia to Palestine but when they want your oil, gas, opium, fresh water etc all of a sudden the leader is labelled a ‘psychotic dictator’ and we have to bomb democracy into them. What that means is we will kill women and children until we own everything, have installed a central bank, and control the natural resources. It’s sssooo formulaic it’s become easy to PREDICT!
Some might say “protest”. And in a way, I agree, but only if that protest is going to educate people or cost the people you’re protesting against money. Any other form of protest is just a loud echo chamber preaching to the converted that the politicians and corporations ignore, including the mainstream media who routinely either ignore a protest or play-down the number of people who attended. Follow these facts – The biggest protest this country ever had was against the Iraq war. They ignored us and killed thousands of people. Then we had the Chilcott Inquiry that proved the protestors right, they were lying to us about the reasons for war. And all the people that lied to us are out of jail, Tony Blair was the middle East peace envoy ffs. So tell me, exactly what does protesting achieve if the biggest one ever had no effect. No, direct action that costs the people you’re protesting against works, boycott or blockade. But they don’t give a shit if ten thousand people wave placards, if it doesn’t cost them anything.
If protesting makes you feel better I understand that. It unites people face to face and people can talk about issues face to face. We all have different paths. I personally get depressed at protests now. I rant to alleviate my depression.
Some might “say stop paying tax to governments you don’t support.” But that will only work if ALOT of people did that en masse at the same time. And for alot of people to do that alot of people need too know why.
In a way I agree, and in my own way I tried that already. But I think we need to educate people first or they’ll never understand. I tried to quit paying tax in my own way. Squatted, dropped out of a “society” that supported the invasion of Iraq and the slow invasion of Palestine etc etc. I was poor, the rich got richer, and I felt like I was being laughed at for being cold and poor. Was not effective without educating people en masse about why and how they should stop paying taxes. To me it boils down to education. Most people don’t even know that the Chilcott Inquiry came to the conclusion that we were misled about the Iraq war let alone come to the realisation that we’re probably lied to about most wars and therefore it would not occur to them that our entire political system is corrupt from the top down and inside out.
It may be a shame that so many people STILL believe mainstream media AND politicians BUT alot of people see the similarities between Iraq, which the Chilcott Inquiry concluded we were led to war under inaccurate data (alleged LIES), and the current’attacks in Syria.
Everybody thinks they’re doing the right thing, we just don’t all have all the dinformation. I don’t know if all the info I have is accurate or important, but I’ll share what I know until or unless that becomes too dangerous (or annoying), then I’ll see how brave or stubborn I am. Kind of bored of ranting about the same thing though but innocent lives are lost for money, can’t shut me up about it. Meh, zoom out enough and it’s just accelerating the reincarnation process. Hard to keep your perspective that zoomed out all the time though, if you even believe in such things.
I don’t know how or when the power of love will overtake the love of power but I still have hope.
More love, more positivity.
ps take a short moment to relax and remember who and what we are. Beyond that educate each other and strive to live in a way that doesn’t support these industries. The war industry fuels the oil industry which is also the plastic industry. Use less plastic (oil) and less petrol and promote sustainable solutions. Our house is buying in bulk to use less plastic and we’re gonna put sustainably sourced biodiesel in the Mrs van. But I also wanna promote hemp plastics and other sustainable industries, hemp plastic kills three birds with one stone cos hemp plastic is biodegradable so it causes less pollution, the hemp plant turns c02 into oxygen so it heals some of the pollution and it’s a replacement for the oil industry which nations kill thousands for. But first things first, relax, or we’ll be acting out of fear and anger instead of out of compassion and common sense.
