The Bankers Profit….BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE STARVING….

In this internet age, one has to be very careful of where one gets his “news” from.   So when I’m getting all worked up over some conspiracy or another, I carefully source my conspiracy facts.   My general worldview is that we are all being victimized by self-interested corporations that have gutted our entire world.   Our government, even in its most limited role, was supposed to protect us from the over-reaching of the uber-corporations.   But time and time again, we see that those who were to protect us were complicit in the systematic enslavement into which we all find ourselves bound.

In a much larger, global and societal perspective, the entire world has been victimized by the corporate ethos.   The corporate ethos ignores long-term goals, it is almost entirely focused on four quarter profits.   Every single day, I see how this has impacted one of our three key human needs….the need for shelter.

The first key need is the need for food.   And that key need, just like the need for shelter, has been devastated and corrupted by the self-serving corporate interests and our “leaders” who are complicit.   Our food supply is under attack.   The facts establish that this is beyond question or doubt at this point in time.   This assertion is not just whack job internet conspiracy theorists…the article that I site for additional support of this argument come from the respected academic publication, Foreign Policy.   The point is simple and clear….the same factors that crashed housing are crashing food.   The same vipers that led to Americans losing their homes are leading directly to people around the world starving….

Demand and supply certainly matter. But there’s another reason why food across the world has become so expensive: Wall Street greed.

It took the brilliant minds of Goldman Sachs to realize the simple truth that nothing is more valuable than our daily bread. And where there’s value, there’s money to be made. In 1991, Goldman bankers, led by their prescient president Gary Cohn, came up with a new kind of investment product, a derivative that tracked 24 raw materials, from precious metals and energy to coffee, cocoa, cattle, corn, hogs, soy, and wheat. They weighted the investment value of each element, blended and commingled the parts into sums, then reduced what had been a complicated collection of real things into a mathematical formula that could be expressed as a single manifestation, to be known henceforth as the Goldman Sachs Commodity Index (GSCI).

This is high level academic stuff…but the facts and methodology are beyond question….read more here

    The Bankers profit because people are starving? This problem is sometimes called “economic Darwinism” and is seen by some as a positive development. It is an economic take on Darwin’s natural selection theory of evolution, survival of the fittest. Under the theory of economic Darwinism the starving people deserve to starve because they cannot prosper in modern society. This is dangerous to a free nation because democratic principals give way to might-is-right rule.

    The starving people can either accept their position and perish, or rise up and reclaim what was taken: Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
