“trauma used to accelerate the advancement of that corporate wishlist” (have to find the source, it was one of the latest DemocracyNow interviews with Naomi)

about the book:

“Around the world in Britain, the United States, Asia and the Middle East, there are people with power who are cashing in on chaos;

exploiting bloodshed and catastrophe to brutally remake our world in their image.

They are the shock doctors.

Exposing these global profiteers, Naomi Klein discovered information and connections that shocked even her about how comprehensively the shock doctors’ beliefs now dominate our world – and how this domination has been achieved.

  • plundering Russia
  • exploiting Iraq

this is the chilling tale of how a few are making a killing while more are getting killed.

DoD and corruption: afraid of budget cuts X-D

“The Board members, to include the Board’s Chairperson, are appointed annually by the United States Secretary of Defense and do not receive any payments for their services.[3]

The Chairs of the Defense Policy Board and the Defense Science Board serve as non-voting ex officio members of the Board.

The Director of the Office of Management and Budget and the Comptroller General of the General Accounting Office serve as non-voting observers of the Board.

In October 2014, Deputy Secretary Robert O. Work instructed the Board to hire consultants from McKinsey & Company to identify wasteful spending.[4]

McKinsey discovered DoD was spending $134 billion, 23% of its total budget, on back-office work, and that the back-office bureaucracy staff of over one million people was nearly as great as the number of active duty troops.[4]

On January 22, 2015, the Board then voted to adopt a McKinsey plan to cut $125 billion in waste over five years.[4]

After Secretary Chuck Hagel was replaced by Ash Carter the next month, however, Deputy Secretary Work expressed he was concerned that the gain from any savings achieved would then be removed from the defense budget by Congress.[4]

Under Secretary Frank Kendall III argued that he could not achieve any efficiencies and, instead, that he needed to hire 1,000 more staff.[4]

Secretary Carter then replaced the Board chairman, classified the McKinsey results as secret, and removed the report from public websites.[4]

In 2016 the DBB provided the model for the Defense Innovation Advisory Board which was established by Defense Secretary Carter during the 2016 during RSA cyber security conference in San Francisco.” (source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defense_Business_Board)

Under Cover of Mass Death, Andrew Cuomo Calls in the Billionaires to Build a High-Tech Dystopia

David Graeber is an Intelligent human being – an activist – active in occupy wallstreet and so on.

His book – debt the first 5000 years – is a scientific very detailed 534 pages book – but what he misses – what is wrong with debt?

let me tell you what is wrong – with the interest on debt monetary system:

repaying debt is not so easy, not only because of the interest-on-interest effect but also – the money to pay the interest – IS NEVER CREATED in the first place – the game is rigged. (see another great book: Bernard Lietaer “rethinking money”)

Here comes the (simplified but still true) example:

imagine a world where there is only one bank and two shoe companies:

  • company A shoes
  • company B shoes

Bank X is given a loan from the central bank of $100.000 in cash (the central bank is the only bank allowed to issue cash).

The $100.000 Bank X keeps as reserves (10% in reality this would be only 1%).

This allows Bank X to lend out 100% of the $100.000 meaning $1.000.000 or one million in “book money” (money that only exists in the books or in computers).

So Bank X can gives company A and company B a loan of $450.000 to start their business and wants every year a modest rate of 3% interest.

The problem: the 3% interest ($13.500 in the first year) ARE NEVER GENERATED and thus one of the loans HAS to fail.

So after the first year – already $27.000 of interest would need to be paid to Bank X – but because this money was never created in the first place it can not be paid unless…

Company A needs to “extract” money/steal from company B in order to repay their debt or face bankruptcy.

Eventually one of the companies will have to close down – people lose their jobs – and the other company then has a monopoly on shoes – the prices for shoes skyrocket X-D

Because the interest-money is never created, it is not in the game, one of the competitors has to fail so the other competitor can repay the loan.

This is evil.

It is evil because sets people against each other in very very aggressive and evil way and calls it “normal”.

This will create a society of thieves and robbers and this is exactly what we have today.

did you know the “privatization” comes from the the latin word “privare” which literately means to steal? (deprive, rob)

The Goldman Sachs saying: “it is not enough that you win – others have to lose”

is not exactly correctly, more correct would be:

“in order to win – others will have to lose”

because those are the (current rules) of this catastrophic debt based game.

Here is another piece of wisdom: NEVER lend money to family or friends or you will lose both.

instead: if a friend or family member is in need ask them what they need and buy it for them. (help with material not with money directly)

or: give the money as a gift.

never the less Graeber keep up the good work.

Lietaer has unfortunately passed away.

She tackles the horrifying terrible crimes of the human race in the most fucked up corners of this beautiful planet

She can bring attention not only to the:

  • UN (which was formed after ww2 – to keep dialogue between almost all nations of this planet going – even those that hate each other – to prevent further useless wars and terrible escalations but has been looked at with scorn and rendered powerless by the US)
  • but to those very tough topics
  • UN blue helmets are very much in need around the globe – as an 3rd objective independent party – that can help bring peace to opposing forces

a hero not only in the movies – but also in real life

PS: sorry it did not work out with Brad :-p

soon UN blue helmets in Donbass?

There are a lot of UN blue helmet peace keeping missions in progress around the globe

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_Nations_peacekeeping_missions

What is important, even when the UN headquarters are based in NY (should be moved to some independent island)

  • that the UN stays active and as independent an unbiased as possible
  • the UN must at all costs avoid to become “a tool” for the US or other nations
  • blue helmets send to Donbass should neither from Ukraine nor from Russia (independent parties) that can report truthfully what the situation is and try to keep the peace

To invite the UN peacekeepers in the Donbass: Pristayko announced a plan in case of failure in Minsk

Ukraine has not officially turned to the UN with the issue of the peacekeepers, but this proposal had been received from Russia, said Pristayko.

The administration of US President Donald trump intends to discuss with the Russian side a plan to deploy 20 thousand peacekeepers in the Donbas.

The United States wants to introduce 20 thousand peacekeepers in the Donbass

How it transmits Axar.az , this is reported by the American newspaper The Wall Street Journal.

This issue is expected to be raised in the coming days. According to the newspaper, according to American and other Western diplomats, this mission can operate under the auspices of the OSCE, and not the UN.

As the newspaper notes, this plan will become one of the parts of the US strategy against Russia, aimed at Moscow’s compliance with the Intermediate-range nuclear forces Treaty (INF).
