I was pissed off at the time. Yeh I know… I’m always pissed off! Anyway, enjoy…
Blah! Basically you’re all a bunch of hollow, lazy, ostentatious and selfish lot of bastards! It’s your fault there’s war, famine and disease in most of the developing world!
How is it you fault I hear you ask? Well, you vote the Governments in that cause the mess! It happens because the west dumps surplus grains and produce on the developing world, those Western goods then sell more cheaply than the local made goods. This then destroys the local economy. Because the local economy is destroyed, thus the people have no jobs and when they have no jobs they can’t buy food! Hence food Aid to the third world and starving Africans and Bob Geldof asking for money on their behalf! You can see this happen in Africa right now! The Government you vote in to represent you, allows and does this!
Not only is your Government allowing the selling of produce there, it’s also allowing the flow of guns, which it creates, markets and sells, in to the starvation area. These weapons are then used by undemocratic leaders to suppress its people and continue the political instability in the area which helps in causing and furthering the starvation! So not only are you starving people you’re having them killed and suppressing them!
I hear you say “I never asked them to!”. Well you voted them in to represent you, and you don’t pay attention to anything they do in your name. So… yeh.. you did!
Why didn’t you know it was happening? Well because you were too busy with your pointless possessions and pursuit of social status symbols! Like your new expensive car to impress the neighbours and help you get laid! You HD TV, £300 shoes, all that jewelry, your $100 hair cut! Your new £200 mobile phone! Come on people these things are NOT essential to your life! They’re just there to distract you! There’s nothing wrong with having them but you love and prize them so much you don’t realise you just got ripped off and can’t see what’s going on around you politically, socially or internationally!
What can we do about it? I don’t know, but I know it starts with getting angry and educated! When I say “educated” I don’t mean pick a political ideology like Communism or Socialism, that will just restrict you to one way of thinking. Do not look to the media to educate you! It’s a good source of distorted fact, fiction and half-truths, but nothing more! To see this just read several different news papers then look on the net, then watch TV news! If you hadn’t figured from reading the different news papers you’ll see a lot of the same story is changed to serve what ever political or economic slant the organisation has. Read between the lines! And open your eyes to the mess in the world and the things that are being done in your name!
