Palm Oil production : the real reason for major Ebola outbreak in Africa ?

The story is simple: as natural forest is slashed to make room for mono-crops, especially palm oil, the bats from the forest (who carry the Ebola virus) go looking for an alternative food source find it in palm oil : their population explodes and moves closer to human habitat , the end result: a major Ebola outbreak.

While “bush meat” and also eating fruit partially eaten by bats may a factor in spreading the virus, the practice of eating bush meat has existed for a long time, and antibodies against the virus have been found in people who live in the affected areas. In the most recent outbreak it was supposed to be a toddler’s chance encounter with a fruit bat which led to the epidemic, so it’s not clear how eating bush meat would even factor into this current outbreak.

Another case of mono cultures destroying the ecological balance?

Evolutionary biologist Robert Wallace explains the fact that neo-liberal policy and monoculture are the real driver of the massive Ebola outbreak in the following video with transcript

Gold Standard discussed in Swiss Parlaiment

Swiss German with English subtitles.

“Save our Swiss gold”

This is what the initiative wants:

1. No further Gold sales by the SNB!
2. All our gold stored in Switzerland!
3. Physical Gold share minimum 20% of SNB Reserves!

 

Note its worth pointing out the Swiss never joined the European Union or adopted the Euro as its currency, despite being surrounded with European union countries. Ironically Switzerland hoards vast quantities of gold in bank vaults for the worlds elite but the common man on the surface still deals in worthless unbacked paper fiat called Swiss francs (CF). Bankers in Switzerland are called the Gnomes of Zurich for a reason.

All roads privatised proposal

Of course this means that:

1) The roads will be sold off cheaply to the puppet masters corporations.

2) Roads will not be maintained.

3) No new roads will be built.

4) Your right to travel freely will be gone.

5) The road tolling system will be a means of universal surveillance

Of course roads can be built without a government, but why do that when you can get the public to pay for it, and then buy at cents in the dollar from the government you installed into office. Then of course ransom the general public for using  the roads they paid for, that y0u just stole off them.

Need  government to build roads? No. Need a government to then sell your roads to a private corporation? No. Makes you wander why tthe corporation didn't build the roads in the first place. Why not? Not economic, but stealing roads is economic.

Larken Rose the plantation

 

Plainly explaining that its not freedom just because someone calls it freedom, it has to have the properties of freedom.

 

It harks back to Stefan Molyneux’s explanation ‘the world is a farm’  and ‘to know the farm is to leave the farm’.

 

 

Net Neutrality debate: prevent internet ransom

The internet

The internet

In the USA there is an on going debate about net neutrality which is a complex topic.

Basically the issue is large communications infrastructure providers are attempting to ransom content delivery companies for speed (bandwidth) or priority access to their own customers.

This is relevant for the world as many major internet services are hosted in the USA and reliant on their network policies and speeds.

Vi Hart ( who normally explains mathematical concepts ) gives a really good explanation of the net neutrality issue.

* Netflicks is an online movie service obviously reliant on good internet speeds.

Summing Up Politics

What this chart demonstrates is the basic truth that evil resides not on the left or the right, but in the extremes of left and right. Ultimately they become the same things, hence we see the alliance between extreme Marxism and Islamo-fascism (because the line is actually a circle , which like the earth itself has a dark side and a sunny side)). However, in the middle things can get so mixed up that there remains very little difference between the sides, which annoys the people on the extreme end of the spectrum endlessly.

It’s possible to add anrchism and libertarianism at the front, providing the ultimate in freedom, but maybe that is not what most people want.

The equilibrium between the left and the right is shifting constantly, that is the nature of politics. For example, Angela Merckel, chancellor of Germany has achieved this equilibrium and is the most popular German chancellor ever (with both sides) However, her success is now being criticized (by some) for stifling debate, which is the mainstay of a true democracy. One could also argue that the woman is a genius who is flexible enough to accept necessary changes while steering a straight course. She is holding the reins not to tight and not too loose.

From an esoteric viewpoint, polarity is what creates the world. Without polarity, positive and negative, yin and yang, night and day, good and evil , the world would simply cease to exist.

In centre the fight becomes a game of wits, at extremes it becomes a battle of life and death.

Where do you stand?

Argentina, arguably the most resource rich country in South America has been plagued by foreign finance manipulation for generations and has finally flipped the bird, describing these investment funds as vulture funds and simply refused to pay.

Wikileaks Oz-SEA corruption coverup exposed

Your aren’t allowed to know about what you aren’t allowed to know about.

In a truly big brother move the Australian government is trying to keep the suppression of information order itself secret.

What is next is secret prisons and secret prisoners.

 

From wikileaks.org  press release:

Australia-wide censorship order for corruption case involving Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam
WikiLeaks release: July 29, 2014
Blanket censorship order preventing reporting on Australia’s largest financial corruption case and any derived allegations against the current and former heads of state of Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam and other senior officials.
The document also specifically bans publication of the order itself and the June 2014 affidavit of Australia’s newly appointed representative to the UN, Gillian Bird. The order was granted under “national security” grounds in order to “prevent damage to Australia’s international relations”. The order was issued following the indictment of seven senior executives related to the Reserve Bank of Australia. The case concerns allegations of multi-million-dollar payments to persons with high-level political connections in Malaysia, Vietnam and Indonesia in order to secure contracts for the production of Australian plastic currency banknotes for these countries.

900 Million dollar poverty enforcement scheme (work for the dole)

UnicornFishingTagged

 

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-07-28/will-work-for-the-dole-increase-your-chances-of/5630302

From this article today, which you may have seen on television today if you watch ABC.

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-07-28/government-reveals-details-of-dole-overhaul/5627660

 

Now watch the video again considering these details which you may have missed:

1) Food was being delivered to people who would otherwise go hungry.

This means poverty is severe and welfare is clearly failing. This generally means there are very limited prospects for employment in this area because money is simply not flowing in this community.

2) Tons of food was being transported,  in particularly vegetables and bread. Question is why aren’t these products being sold in supermarkets? Are supermarkets simply squeezing out  local manufacturers?

3) The young woman (Stacey Binns) was working for no payment.

This means no amount of work she was doing would increase her disposable income, and would not start money flowing in her community. Therefore what she was really doing was being forced to perpetuate the poverty in her community.

4) The young woman (Stacey Binns) quite rightly pointed out that there are hundreds of application for every job advertised. Her chances are slim of getting out of the poverty trap deliberately created around her.

5) This is one of 18 high unemployment areas around Australia where this scheme has been rolled out this month and already the federal government wants to expand the scheme further making it nationwide by July 2015.

6) The government will spend 900 Million dollars rolling out this scheme, that’s almost  enough to send a rover to the surface of Mars. It well known that these schemes are generally not successful and actually if anything reduce the chances of transition from welfare to work.

7) 900 Million dollars is enough money to give 18,000 people 50, 000 for one year, I think 18,000 people having a basics income would generate more jobs than a downward economic spiral. The almost 1 Billion dollars will be wasted on a variety of corporate scumbags lining up for a hand out while attacking people on benefits.

8) Work for the dole or ‘help and hassle’ welfare schemes only really function when the economy is super hot and unemployment is extremely low (2% or less), not when unemployment is well above 5%.

9) All of this has been tried before and even without the stipulation to engage in slave labor, when there are no jobs no amount of looking for them will be successful.

 

Proof? (Warning kiwi accents.)

I cant try any harder!

-A young man shows quite succinctly by canvassing numerous Auckland suburbs that the jobs were simply not there.

The clip is from a much larger series by Alistair Barry which you can find links to here:

http://occupymelbourne.net/2014/05/21/australia-2014-copies-new-zealand-1984/

 

Don’t be too impatient give it a few minutes, you are practically looking at a working crystal ball, everything you are seeing now in the Australian economy was tried in New Zealand 25 years ago. The result was a disaster, by the time the right wing neo-con government was voted out off office in 1999 , the economy was shrinking at 2% though strangely the government  statistics department was claiming it was growing at 2%. Though that is a separate scandal in itself which strangely got very little media traction. Of course this all happened while most western economies were booming, showing how much of a complete failure it was to improve the economy.

This of course was simply a tactic to reduce the average wage and introduce a whole new strata of New Zealand society to a lower standard of living ,and quite a  few to abject poverty. Interestingly this right wing government launched a radical slashing of welfare just after assuming office on a strong majority after a lack luster two term Labour government with leadership changes in the dying days, sounds too bloody familiar.

 

Inflation note:

For reference in 1991 $50 NZD was worth about $86NZD in today’s money. The inflation problems experienced in Australia in the 90′s had already happened in NZ in the 80′s. Food prices are comparable with Australian prices though meat is about 20% less expensive due to exceptional livestock rearing climate (fertile soil, lack of drought and neither too hot or cold most years). Beer and other alcohol is 50% cheaper due to much lower excises, personally I think if it wasn’t the country would be empty and Bondi  Beach would be full. New Zealand actually produces enough food to feed itself and all of Australia, a good reason to be in the good books with the bloody kiwis, or at least have a comprehensive invasion plan.
