the Corporate War Machine Destroys All, by Design

Posted on the 24 May 2011 by Freeplanet @CUST0D1AN
there is NO GAIN IN PROFIT, because the Corporate War machine destroys all in the name of 'the bottom line'.
And it's not just a political statement, it's the concept of GROWTH that underpins all rampant Consumerism on this super-sized planet.
But just to get us off to a flying start, and so that you don't think I've got my head buried in the contemporary, let's re-examine the SLAUGHTER of the Roman Empire and its amphitheatre where gladiatorial games were played out. First, it sets up the "us and them", the victors and the vanquished, the rulers* and the slaves. This allows amoral acts like the Roman Amphitheatres, most famous of which is the Coliseum.
It seems the idea of the Roman Amphitheatre was to RELIVE or REENACT specific moments of the Empire, like major battles or animal hunts or acts of nature (were starving animals bear down upon weakened 'criminals') a living history book (ironically). Dio Cassius recounts that over 9,000 wild animals were killed during the inaugural games of the amphitheatre.
It is, of course, all about appeasing the masses, because every Corporate Government knows it's YOU THE PEOPLE who really control things.
If only You The People understood this, actually understood your power.
The real crime here is the FISHING STOCK. No, I'm taking the piss, there are no fish in the Roman Amphitheatre, unless there were ponds of piranha. But there 'used to be' COD in our oceans, there used to be tuna and sardines and eels in abundance. Extinction Economics ensures that that abundant resource would be priced out of the sensible market, aiding financial growth in certain investment sectors. Same with all the lions, giraffes, elephants, hippos, cheetahs, tigers, panthers, gorillas, bears etc that were SLAUGHTERED FOR MANKIND'S ENTERTAINMENT in the Roman Amphitheaters.
Makes the spectacle all the more alluring, watching a species routed to annihilation, what fun.
And where do you think all these riches of the planet come from? How do you think these valuable resources are replenished? Well, it's like the Amazon Rain Forest. You chop that down and you lose that resource for AT LEAST FIFTY TO ONE HUNDRED YEARS. All that life-giving oxygen and organic matter and diversity.
Or ponder this most basic of truths, the global conglomerate business model views this entire planet as a company. Restructuring, we all know what that means, right? It means job losses. It means redundancies. In this context, it means surplus COUNTRIES RUINED. Is this what we're seeing all over the world as a war gone rampant, a mere re-distribution of assets?
Here's a simple fact for all you worshippers of the Corporate Empire out there: most of you reading this blogpost are DEAD IN FIFTY YEARS. Yay, you're dead, you're dead, you're dead, you're dead! Think about that before you once again reach into your pocket for money you don't have (or need) to fund the Corporate War machine's latest foray into tyrannical WORLD DOMINATION. Renounce the Corporate War Machine. Proclaim this a Free Planet based on Creativity, Passion and Kinship.
Do you really want to live in a future world of twenty billion consumers where RECYCLED HUMAN PROTEIN (full of hormones and poisons) is the only meat? Where RECYCLED HUMAN PISS (full of hormones and poisons) is the only form of clean water? I mean, aren't you even a little bit disgusted by the Obesity Issue? Not one hand goes up?
*You The People are not yet the rulers, only the slaves. Fodder for slaughter.
