HOLIDAY GREETINGS, AND WISHES FOR A HAPPY NEW YEAR IN 2010.
There are good tidings:
Bolsa Familia (President Lula Da Silva) lifted 27 million people in Brazil out of poverty, (Newsweek, Dec 9, 09, p15), helping thereby about 1% of the global 2.6 billion people who lived on less than $2 per head per day under a political economy pursued and celebrated by the WB, the WTO and the IMF.
Bolsa Familia has worked to re-establish Trust amongst the people in governance, thereby making a major contribution to human social and mental health.
The Brazilian program was unhindered by the financial meltdown of the global (Wall Street, Bond Street, Shanghai, Dalal Street) economy managed by the 'Blood Bankers' and their cohorts (Jim Henry, 2003), modern day Pharaohs who make up5% of the global population 'owning' about80% of planetary land and resources!
They seek to wage wars (and President Obama, a 'peace-award' recipient recently 'certified' the necessity under ethical eschatology for a "just war" in Afghanistan), with implied assurances to control holdings belonging to other elites while simultaneously helping mature his claim (conditioned as the general population is to sense of security in the promise of violence), fora second term in office.
To wage wars the monopolists utilize employees, new emigres, serfs, slaves, (captive members of the various middle- classes who have to seek employment, given that their endemic land and resource rights are unacknowledged, in-accessible, and rendered 'illegal'), to battle one another on behalf of the 5%.
In retrospect, Nature that is local to our planet has succeeded in creating human beings (who, when born, live for a while and then die), by providing them and other species sustenance directly from its bosom, the biosphere.
Nature's ability for such manifestations is believed to come from God, or the Darwinian hypothesis, or the hypothesis of earlier success of either of the former two elsewhere, transferred here through Elohim.
In social arrangements, what has the 'global-middle-class' accomplished but to ensure that the bankers and their cohorts are kept satisfied in their goal to hold land and resources common to all unto themselves, through wars justified by lies or reason, assigned to be waged by the people?
As poverty is the source of most social problems, it is time to consider in public, or in silence, how to collect "land -value rent" from the 5% while "Earth Rights" are established for everyone, non-violently, (Gandhi, King), so that human beings may move on with their birthright freedoms.
The window of opportunity from the 2008 financial collapse is still open.
Otherwise, despite the pretense of democracy with a right to cast a vote every now and then,(1776), the people will continue to live in slavery and the promise of an abundant, responsible, creative experience to guide each of us forward will remain unrealized; and that need not be!
With Best Wishes,
