Globalization is not the panacea for global Good or the sustainability of Future Humanity and can only end in a world in extreme conflict with itself and oblivion

The first half of the 20th century was dominated by a struggle to find economic supremacy through military action. Both WW1 and WW2 that included the imperial war in the East that Japan started in the interests of securing South-East Asian domination and through the capture of the wealth of others (their natural resources and the slave labour that came with those conquests), was all for their nation’s economic benefit. Germany was the same. But one can say that about most wars according to history where the non-empathy with other humans for the sheer benefit of the aggressors has always gone on. These wars of course all had the same base causes predominantly, that of ‘inequality’ and the subject matter in 2014 of the Davos gathering of the good and the powerful.

In the second half of the 20th century and the start of the 21st century a more destructive mechanism has evolved, that of globalization. Indeed when the concept of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) came about it was no good to go to war for economic gain as a military WW3 would destroy the world forever as we know it. As most leaders of sovereign nations are cowards, as they always send others to war and never themselves (as an example it is over 500 years since a leader rode at the front of his army in battle in the UK), even they knew that there was no future in exploring global conflict as that would lead to their own demise and death also.

Therefore a new mechanism had to be born where other nation’s wealth could be captured without MAD entering the equation. Initially though this was not the purpose, as globalisation and liberalization of markets was seen as the way of preserving peace that would never allow MAD to escape out of Pandora's box. Unfortunately with most well intentioned thoughts, this has now been corrupted over the last half century to the benefit of the global multi-nationals and supported behind closed doors by their politicians. Globalization therefore equates to the new form of warfare, economic warfare. Unfortunately this is far more deadly than conventional military world wars as they continue in perpetuity, capturing wealth wherever for the corporation and the world’s wealthiest individuals. Some of them will not even know this, but indirectly they are causing inequality to expand year-on-year across the globe. For the reason why they do not see what is happening and where they are driving this situation is because all they see is their personal wealth amassing as a new year begins and that’s all that counts. The super-rich are therefore blind to what is happening but where as the population of the world heads towards 10 billion by 2050 and possibly 15 billion by 2100 (UN possible projections using different scenarios but remember there will not be a WW3 because of MAD), it is common sense that the people will eventually rise up against globalization and the super-rich (together with their politicians). Indeed as presently 0.7% of the adult global population according to the 2013 report by Credit Suisse controls 41% of the wealth of the world and 50% of the world’s people only control around 1% of the world’s wealth, this is a global tinderbox that will rise up eventually.  For the definition of a tinderbox is ‘a burned or partly burned substance, that is not reduced to ashes but is incapable of further combustion. That is what has happened to the people with the advent of globalization that has gone so sadly wrong for the future of humankind.

'We Are All Greeks Now' (by a joint Pulitzer Prize winner) - http://www.opednews.com/articles/We-Are-All-Greeks-Now-by-Chris-Hedges-Austerity_Banks_Capitalism_Corporate-150712-434.html

Therefore those in Davos should know in no uncertain terms that they are reaping a whirlwind of destruction in the 21st century through their sheer greed and nothing more. Indeed as China continues its march to economic supremacy with the help of western corporations just looking for their own gain and not the gain of their people back home, the ‘West’ will become increasingly impoverished as the years go by. You see these people are not bothered whether their home country losses masses of jobs as has been the case through globalization to press, as that means very little to them. All that counts is their personal wealth.

It is also clear now that behind closed doors big business is pulling all the political strings. For in this respect it appears that the global corporations (a mere 2,000 of them controlled 51% of the world’s economic turnover last year) has succeeded in  creating a system (globalization) that makes all working citizens simply the ‘cash-cow’ to be exploited wherever and where our politicians do literally nothing. The USA-EU TTIP trade agreement is a fine example here of the corrupt power of big business taking over the world and the direct control of citizens, as this trade pact will even allow corporations to rise above sovereign laws themselves. You think that this is mad and could not possibly be, just wait and see our politicians sign up to it adhering too their indirect master’s wishes.

'The Lie Machine' - http://www.opednews.com/articles/The-Lie-Machine-by-Paul-Craig-Roberts-America_Corporate_Corporations_Power-141012-777.html by Dr Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury for Economic Policy in the Reagan Administration

In this way steadily the world is becoming a far more volatile environment for all to live therefore and this is being driven by the sheer greed of the few. No ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’ here and all perfectly true if people would open up their minds.

 But the corrupting agent in all this is the ‘party’ system in politics that wants power for itself, not the people. This is what corrupts democracy and the reason why a new form of government has to be created before things do really get out of control. For poverty and inequality drives all this warlike conflict through corruption and the greed of the few…nothing else if common sense is used.

'The Illusion of Democracy' - http://www.opednews.com/articles/The-Illusion-of-Democracy-by-Gilbert-Mercier-150304-357.html
Therefore it is time that people realised that when they are voting for a better life they are in reality voting for the ‘party’ and where this corrupt system will eventually lead us all to the abyss.  Time has come therefore to change the democratic system that totally panders to the ‘party’ and vote for anyone else except the system that has brought us to a world in constant conflict…all brought about by the political and economic greed of the very few.

For over the years we have come to understand the mindset of globalization and where when tens and hundreds of billions of dollars is concerned, the people can go to hell.

'Cancer Capitalism' - http://www.opednews.com/articles/Cancer-Capitalism-by-Mark-Taliano-Bailout_Capitalism-Over-Humanity_Finance_Finance-151024-207.html

Single examples of this are where the mighty corporations have stopped the introduction through their governments of the ‘cure’ for all hard drug addicts, as it would mean that the big pharmaceuticals (nearing a US$ 1 trillion a year global turnover) would lose tens of billions in sales and another through the destruction of the only strategy that has stopped bird flu in its tracks (1997). Why would governments do this if the corporations were not pulling all the strings in the background as a cure for class ‘A’ drugs would save 100s of millions from the scourge of drug addiction and were the highly contagious human-to-human bird flu will according to some take over a billion lives the next time around. Indeed Dr. Margaret Chan Director-General of the WHO has stated many times that it is not a question of if but when. Unfortunately we know of many more where government and vested-interest global industries have colluded in going against the people’s clear benefit in the quest of personal wealth.

Therefore these powerful corporations are now dicing with the lives of hundreds of millions and where our politicians now do all their bidding. This is what globalization has done for the world and is increasingly doing so. Unfortunately these people are leading us all to times of unending global conflict but where they appear to be oblivious to the fact. Indeed when the conflict comes as it will, the military will inevitably join on the side of the people, for that is where they have their roots.

The biggest problem of course is to change all this but where our political leaders are bought and sold on the altar of power and wealth both in the USA and the UK. For when it comes to ultimate control, less than a mere thousand people control the destiny of the USA as an example, and at their pleasure. For it's official now, as they control the White House in reality, even before a new President is elected, no matter which Party gets into power. In this respect, in the USA things are not as they seem and where western media controlled by the top 1% wealthiest Americans, is suppressing the 'real' America of today.  A few Americans have bought their political leaders before they even enter the White House and where the working poor, working class and middle class that accounts for 90% of the American people, have no say anymore in their country's future. Only the rich and powerful has any real say. Indeed the article by investigative journalists at the New York times released on 10 October 2015 makes this perfectly clear For just 158 families have provided nearly half of the early money for efforts to capture the White House. - http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2015/10/11/us/politics/2016-presidential-election-super-pac-donors.html?emc=edit_na_20151010&ref=headline&_r=0

As a postscript and the way that our political masters now think, the USA, Canada, Ukraine and most European countries (through abstaining in a vote at the UN), are in favour of Nazism, even though in Germany where Nazism was born and killed and murdered tens of millions throughout  WW2 (over 50 million). Sadly you could not make it up if you tried but where this is perfectly true unfortunately for humanity.

Whitewashing Fascism - USA, Canada and Ukraine Vote against a UN Resolution in "Combating glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to fuelling contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance." Therefore the USA, Canada and the Ukraine are for Nazism and where European countries mainly abstained as they did not want to upset Obama.

The Establishment-v-The British People...Who has the Brains to Get the Country out of Debt and create a Dynamic Future Economy? I would say the latter !

       


The 'elitist' thinking that they are the only ones with the solutions (politicians, Whitehall civil servants and the business-university model) is a complete fallacy. Unfortunately these people get in power and the real thinkers never have a chance to emerge. This is because vested personal interests kicks in and where these people do everything in their power to keep the status quo and keep all others down in the interests of the 'steady-state'. Indeed these people are morally bankrupt as they are simply helping themselves all the time to the total detriment of all our future generations to come. In this respect they stifle and kill off any chance of a dynamic innovative economy ever emerging.

    Newton the polymath
Lowly carpenter John Harrison  

In this respect as a single example, the polymath thinking is associated with the great scientists of history. But history has shown that they did not have the answers either to global practical problems. A prime example of this is in the 17th century where ships were being destroyed near to coastlines costing the most powerful nation on earth both a kings ransom every week and hundreds of vitally needed seafaring lives. The British government offered a sum of £50,000 if someone could solve the problem (an enormous sum at the time). All the great thinkers of the time put their minds to the task. Enter into the ring Sir Isaac Newton and a man named Harrison. In the left hand corner a man who had revolutionised the concept of the universe and created the ‘Calculus’ and in the right hand corner a mere carpenter and amateur clockmaker who tinkered with time pieces. Any betting man or woman would have put all their money on the left hand corner and where the right hand corner was seemingly a no brainer. But history has shown that it was the lowly carpenter and clockmaker Harrison who won the day and Newton did not get near to a solution. Therefore the greatest mind that the world had seen and an acknowledged polymath was defeated by a man who used no more than his hands and basic knowledge that he attained by attending school up to the age of 12 years. The same will hold today and where there are many Harrisons laying dormant and where these are the real people that we have to find and nurture, not polymaths who have had a limited impact on the ‘practicalities’ of human development and making life continually better for the human experience. Indeed Harrison did more for humanity and international commerce by solving the problem in practical terms that Newton did with his theories that were purely knowledge based on the ‘shoulders’ of others as he put it himself . The elitist ‘establishment’ were so surprised and intellectuality dismayed that they initially denied Harrison his prize as it showed that they were no better than their fellow (lowly) man and where a mere carpenter had beaten them at their own game. The concept of a polymath is therefore all wrong as we all live on continuously ‘shifting sands’ of more enlightened knowledge and no-one can ever collate all that is needed within such a dynamic environment...especially the 'Establishment' who have sold the people of the UK down the Swanny for their own wealth and riches.

But the main reason why Harrison is cited as an example is because there are many modern equivalents of Harrison who live in Britain today. Indeed the history of science and technology tells us that over 75% of all the fundamental thinking that has made the modern world what it is today did not emanate in our elitist university and business centres of R&D but from the minds of people outside the confines of this system. Therefore the 'Establishment' has provided little but taken out of society and where others (the common man and woman) have been the catalysts of the world's modern being. Indeed if the 'Establishment' and elitists were so good. why has the UK declined in economic growth for the two and half decades now in 'real' terms?

In this respect Price Waterhouse Coopers one of the big four global accountants in 2009 on far better predictions of economic growth stated that the UK's total debt as a nation (personal debt, government debt, off-balance sheet government debt, UK business debt and bank debt...everything) was projected to be in excess of £10 trillion by 2015. Unbelievable but where PwC's chief economist stated this and where PwC's figures were,

Households Debt - £1.9 Trillion
General Government Debt - £1.4 Trillion
Non Financial Company Debt - £2.2 Trillion
Financial sector Debt - £4.5 Trillion

(but where they stated that the range of our debt could be as high as £11.5 Trillion - http://pwc.blogs.com/press_room/2010/11/pwc-projects-total-uk-public-and... )

The sad fact according to ONS is that the UK is worth no more than £8 trillion... everything ! So even if we sold up to say China lock, stock and barrel and moved to another country, we as UK citizens would still owe over £2 trillion to the world. I think they call it bankrupt and where we are in the worst mess financially that this nation has ever found itself. Indeed when we were in this situation before but not anyway as bad, we went to war to cut our debt through conquest, just like Germany did through the Nazis. We cannot now do that of course as others would unleash their weapons of mass destruction and the threat of MAD.

So who are the idiots, the people or our elitist 'Establishment' who think that they have all the answers but where in reality they clearly have not. Therefore the nation's future still lies in the hands of the creative thinking of UK citizens not the 'Establishment', but where because the people of the UK are the underclass, they are not allowed by the 'Establishment' to express their creative thoughts and where there is no system in the UK to do this. Don't think either that such things as the NESTA are doing this as this quango is controlled entirely by the 'Establishment' and will not let anything other than their 'pet' subjects (that do not hit the bottom-line of big business) have the opening to air their creative views. We know this as we advised on the NESTA's creation but where the 'Establishment' took hold and a good idea was killed off at birth. This is what happens in self-protectionist Britain today and where the elitist few reap up to 85% of all new wealth and the 90% of the people only receive no more than 15% of all new wealth at best. This at the fundamental level is the main reason why we have such vast inequalities in living standards today and where the people must change all this. Unfortunately there is a constant rear-guard action within the 'Establishment' that stifles innovation for their own vested-interests and where anything that is a threat to the profits and bottom-line of investments is never allowed to see the light of day. That is why Snowden and Assange are so important, as they and others are exposing what is really going on in the world behind closed doors and why in many ways the top 100 richest people last year increased their personal wealth by a staggering $240 billion and enough according to Oxfam to end global poverty 4-times over. This is not just immoral but utterly obscene where the whole of humanity is concerned and where these super-rich individuals give very little indeed of their wealth away to alleviate and stop poverty worldwide. It appears that they are more interested in personal power that vast wealth gives them over politicians and the people of the world. They are indeed 'masters of the world', but where they have little heart or indeed soul for others when it comes to human suffering or starvation. Indeed many are now starting to see these people as equivalents in many ways indirectly as the Nazis who had very similar mentalities and where they had no empathy at all for their fellow man or woman, only themselves which is basically why the world is as it is, constantly involved in minor wars and struggles for survival, but where inequality will drive people to escalate this situation in the years ahead. In this respect as the 'West' declines in economic power over the next half century, internal civil wars and anarchy appear to be what is on the horizon for western countries due to the self-greed of the few and the actions of corrupt politician leaders who will provide a fertile ground for anarchy to prevail.

In finishing this article the Foundation outlines just a very few further examples of countless numbers of people who were not the 'Establishment' figures that have transformed the world through their fundamental thinking and have been the basis of new global industries. These are,

Logie Baird (television) - Frank Whittle (jet engine) - Berners-Lee (WWW) - Jack Kilby (the 'chip') - Bessemer (steel) - Joseph Aspdin (cement) - Fleming (penicillin) - Faraday (Electricity generation) - Wright Bros. (Aeroplane/Aviation) - Peter Durand (the tin can-that revolutionised food preservation) - Samuel Brown (internal combustion engine) - Richard Trevithick (railway engines) - Tomlinson (email) - Tim Paterson (MS-DOS basis of all that has come out of Microsoft) - Thomas Saint (sewing machine) - William Borne (the submarine) - Semmelweis (antiseptics) - Benjamin Franklin (bifocals) - Konrad Zuse (Z3-the world's first electronic computer) - Rudolf Diesel (diesel engine) - Goddard (liquid fuelled rocket propulsion) - Thomas Edison (light bulb etc, etc)...the list is endless but where the Foundation has an in-depth analysis of all these normal non-establishment heroes who changed the world forever that goes to 79 pages and where it gives their background (many came from poor homes and poverty, but had an inherent creative mind to change humanity for the better).

That is why the UK, if it is to have an economic future and prevent anarchy arising, has to put in place the creative infrastructure for the people so that new global industries can emerge. For without this new thinking in place we shall see Britain decline in living standards at an alarming rate. For we as a nation are fully reliant upon imports and without the means to pay for them we ultimately run the risk of not being able to feed ourselves in the decades ahead. Indeed if you have not the ability to pay your bills, just who will come to our rescue is the question?  We can't see anyone and not even the UN has enough financial muscle to keep the UK afloat and its people. Therefore we are currently on a high risk trajectory that can only get worse as the years march on and where the present economic systems are only adding to the nation's debt year-on-year...for do not believe what our politicians are telling you that things are getting better, as the writing is on the wall for economic decline and that is why it is of paramount importance to get our politicians to simple listen to new ways forward, not the old stuff that we still use that got us into this horrible debt mess that we are really in today ! In many ways debts that we have not presently the ability to pay off if truth be told and one of the primary reasons to why we simply have to use our intelligence and provide and install the systems that will provide our independent salvation as a nation. For you know now why successive UK governments have been loathed to leave the EU, as they think in their ignorance that the EU will be their ultimate guarantor. Unfortunately this stupid mentality and thinking is flawed as the EU will eventually disintegrate over the next 20-years through progressive economic decline and the emergence of mighty economies in the East.

Shale Gas Fracking - just another big Con on the British People that will create more problems eventually than any so-called benefits?

The fracking millions... local benefit or ‘bribe’? http://www.blackpoolgazette.co.uk/news/business/local-business/the-fracking-millions-local-

http://www.dangersoffracking.com/


 



http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/government-accused-of-bribing-local-councils-on-controversial-fracking-projects-9057077.html
  





'Death by Fracking' - http://www.opednews.com/articles/Death-by-Fracking-by-Chris-Hedges-Cancer_Carcinogens_Corporations_Death-151018-23.html

If ever there was an example of how this current government panders to big business and where business is pulling all the strings behind the scenes, it has to be shale gas fracking and the new planning system. Both are all about huge amounts of wealth creation but not for the people (the taxpayer) and where the big winners as usual are the corporations and the politicians that serve their ends. For the people are just the ‘cash-cows’ to provide the wealth and to be basically exploited at will and no more - no real wealth to the people whatsoever in other words and all 'take'.

In the USA there are all sorts of reports where tap water ignites when it is turned on and a naked light is close to it. This never happened before according to USA residents but it certainly does now. Therefore why is water apparently lighting up if there has not been an effect on the water supplies. Added to this the businesses involved will not come clean to what the chemicals are that they force into the shale with high pressure water to break it up and release shale gas.

The problem is that a great deal of people do not realise that we are more dependant upon our water extraction from the ground than the water stored in our reservoirs. That goes for anywhere in the world and the USA and UK are no different.

Therefore if we poison our ground water, we are literally dicing with the nation’s propensity to provide drinking water for the people. Indeed what happens if these chemicals poison the ground wells for good and we cannot drink from them. If this happened we would have to buy imported water at an astronomical price for ever. It is a little like radioactive contamination when a nuclear power station or a nuclear  bomb has been released into the environment. People just cannot live there for decades  unless they want to run the risk of ill-health and cancers etc. The same result will happen if we contaminate our water supplies.

Therefore the government are literally mad and where they simply think of today and not tomorrow and the world that our future generations will have to face (a far worse situation I can tell you than today). Indeed shale gas will not last long, possibly little more than three decades before it is depleted. What happens then? Probably dig up the coal in the UK where we have 300-years of supply. So why not do it now?  The answer to that lays at the foot of Downing Street and where behind closed doors all sorts of deals are sealed with our corporates.

I can understand why government are pushing like headless chickens in the dash for energy with no thinking other that Lovely jubbly, but where if they really sat back and thought hard for a week, they would see that there are far better ways to provide our energy security -  http://worldinnovationfoundation.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/invest-in-energy-security-first-and-not.html
But will they listen, I think not as usual as they know it all. In this respect they would rather look at the moon and bribe local authorities so that their friends in big business can make a killing as usual.
When it comes to planning as well, they have given a free hand to big business and developers to buy up greenbelt and turn it into building land, some 100-times more valuable. In this respect there are people who are literally making billions out of this government scam that will line the pockets of the few as usual. Indeed government appears to be fully complicit in this process  also. The only winners again are big business and not the people who our government purportedly serves. That is possibly the biggest joke of all time but where unfortunately the people and their families suffer again. Why is it that normal people using common-sense can see what is wrong with the system but they cannot? The answer must be that politicians are in the back pocket of big business and that is as far as things go. In this respect one has only to see after a few years where secretaries of state and ministers end up working a day a week for big business at exorbitant rates. One is a former  Culture Secretary and where he now has a £300,000 job with the BBC plus all the perks that go with. How can this happen when the same person was the BBC’s ultimate boss as a secretary of state when in office. Oh by the way, he also gets his basic salary in retirement as a former secretary of state of around £135,000 a year for life. The system stinks to say the very least but where it is just water off a duck’s back to them.

And then they ask why people are not voting? For what, is the answer. For they are feathering their nest and little more once the covers come off.

But the worst thing that our politicians are doing to date is that they are selling the people of the EU and USA down the Swanny with the new trade agreement where big business can override the laws of sovereign nations - http://worldinnovationfoundation.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/the-eu-usa-trade-agreement-if-our.html. You could not make it up if you tried but this is what is actually happening at the present time. Indeed the only winners again with be the rich and powerful (0.7% of the adult population of the world owned 41% of all global wealth last year and 10% owned 86% of the world's wealth according to Credit Suisse, but 50% only owned 1%) and of course, the politicians themselves.

But the great madness with Fracking appears to be that just as much energy is put in to release the energy. Therefore there is no real benefit other than the people pay dearly for all this madness that simply substitutes one carbon energy source for the other. Indeed it is purely just another stream of revenue and vast profit for big business and where the people pay an astronomical price and risk their long-term health into the corporate bargain. Therefore politicians are not really working for the people and safeguarding their wellbeing, but the vast financial and economic interests of corporates. Why do we vote is the big question, as those that do, simple do not get any real justice  whatsoever from our political classes anymore?
