Ludicrous Assumptions

by gan Sunday, Nov. 19, 2006 at 9:20 AM

Ludicrous assumptions are many but perhaps the most absurd is the assumption that those who steal the greater percentage of available wealth and continue to implement economic strategies designed to enslave are (somehow) safe and secure. From the Pacific islands to the pitch battles in Mainland China, exploited people of the world are retaliating against injustice.

No compelling or logical argument exists that would allow for the perpetuation of minority rule and the existing status quo, specifically, exploitation by the few of the many and the subsequent inequitable distribution of wealth (capitalism by any other name). To allow any minority to possess the greater proportion of wealth is the utmost absurdity in view of the fact that it is the OVERWHELMING MAJORITY that generates the greater proportion of wealth.

Today, without any instigation from secret cabals, ‘reds’ (under the bed), ‘terrorist’ bogeymen, camel drivers or religious prophets/messiahs; it is the people themselves who plainly see the GLARING INJUSTICE of international exploitation (capitalism).

The wars and social conflicts of today are ‘waged’ by those who wish to cling to destructive redundant models of self-interest, exploitation and plunder. The costs associated with these antiquated, perverse models are plain to see, total environmental degradation and the devaluation of human life, to name the most heinous.

Self-interested forces today are no longer able to hide their real intentions and identities behind tissue-thin lies and other ruses; the stench of death follows them wherever they go! Innocent blood on the hands of murderers is indelible. People are no longer willing to tolerate murderers, thieves and environmental vandals in positions of leadership.

Besieged peoples of the world have no choice but to defend themselves against foul and nefarious forces that would murder for personal gain; ‘evil’ does indeed have a tangible and easily identifiable face! Those who allow innocent children to die of starvation when the means to alleviate that hunger is readily available are no better than those who overtly kill for profit. It is the starving children that forever indict the affluent societies of the world!

A number of individuals today have amassed more personal wealth than some small states; however, it should never be forgotten that obscene levels of personal wealth have been obtained by the sweat of others, there is no avoiding inequity – profit is theft! What price a human life when a single person possesses more wealth than a state and children continue to die of starvation in order for corporate balance sheets to appeal to stock markets?

Ample funds and the means to eliminate poverty from the face of the earth have been available for decades; however, international Capitalism regards humanitarian needs as counter-productive and irrelevant – profit at all costs while exploited nations suffer INFLICTED HARDSHIPS is a familiar pattern.

The fight today is really between selfish interests and the forces for COMMON good – a fight for the survival of the species and the triumph of the noble over the ignoble spirit of man. The face of greed and selfish pursuits is always accompanied by the discourse of chaos, war and destruction. Those who espouse violent solutions are the criminals of the present age. It is imperative for humanity that mass murderers are apprehended and held accountable for their crimes, we specifically refer to Bush, Bin Laden, Rice, Wolfowitz, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Perle, Rove, Kissinger, Blair, Howard and their support networks.

Proposals to mount constant vigils/demonstrations outside the offices and homes of the above named criminals has been well received; such vigils would indicate that all does not augur well for the criminal elites of the world.

[It is sometimes helpful to reiterate that which is known but sometimes overlooked or forgotten.]

The overwhelming majority of people today are no longer afraid, hear it from them:

“We have been and continue to be brutalised, tortured and murdered yet we prevail. You have done your worst and failed, we shall not be moved. The false divisions you attempt to create with your false Gods, religions, politics, national borders etc, we reject – we are ONE.

You are and have always been dependent on us, understand the order of things and surrender what rightfully belongs to the people.

We refuse the rule of corrupt minorities and violent cabals; striking at the waves does not stem the tide. We shall not be moved.

All forms of government are instituted by the people and are subject to the will of the people.”

The rule of criminals and cynics ceases when the people assert their inalienable rights and initiate change.

We are ONE.
