Truth About WikiLeaks?
Who is Behind Wikileaks? ... Wikleaks is upheld as a breakthrough in the battle against media disinformation and the lies of the US government. Unquestionably, the released documents constitute an important and valuable data bank. The documents have been used by critical researchers since the outset of the Wikileaks project. ... Progressive organizations have praised the Wikileaks endeavor. Our own website Global Research has provided extensive coverage of the Wikileaks project. The leaks are heralded as an immeasurable victory against corporate media censorship. But there is more than meets the eye. – Global Research, Michel Chossudovsky
Dominant Social Theme: It's a great organization and questions should be ignored.
Free-Market Analysis: We were pleased to see that Michel Chossudovsky has weighed in on WikiLeaks with a six page opus posted at Global Research. At least some of his issues, in fact, have already been presented within these modest pages, and below we provide some links to our staff reports and a trilogy about an Assange-like character that make similar points:
It is instructive to see what Chossudovsky has concluded. Admittedly, he raises issues that we have mentioned only generally or in passing. His general conclusion like ours is that Julian Assange (Pictured above left) is probably NOT what he appears to be, but some good is coming out of L'affaire Assange nonetheless – and we agree. From our point of view, Assange may possibly have links to the Anglo-American power-elite, but if so, his arrival on the scene shows once more the difficulty of the challenges that the Anglosphere is now encountering.
Because of the truth-telling of the Internet, more than a century of mind control (the 20th century) has been diminished. Accept, as we do, that there is an Anglo-American inter-generational elite whose goal is to build a kind of one world order and Assange becomes a statement as much as the head of a powerful debunking movement. Acquiesce hypothetically to Assange-as-elite-ally and one can see how far away from its goals the elite has been forced to move.
The elite has attempted to nudge the world toward global governance by using fear-based promotions, dominant social themes, that frighten the middle class into giving up wealth and power to a variety of specially created global facilities – the UN, WHO, World Bank, etc. These fear-based promotions are promulgated via what is called the Hegelian Dialectic, a public conversation that is controlled by the elite on both sides. Gradually the dialogue – argument – is moved toward the goals and objectives of the elite and away from undesirable conclusions.
While the Hegelian Dialectic is a great society molding tool, it has one logical flaw: At certain times of great social stress the elite has to readjust the dialectic to include arguments that it had dealt with previously but which are reappearing. What this means practically is that it has to reintroduce spokespeople to represent the side of the argument that it has already left behind. If society in some fashion has reignited a debate that the elite believed was already doused, then the elite is a position of re-endorsing perspectives that it had intentionally done away with. This is what is happening now.
What the elite may have failed to grasp is that the control mechanisms of the 20th century are not configuring the conversation in the desired manner in the 21st. Why is this the case? Because the Internet is a process not an episode. The Anglo-American axis is a linear enterprise with a single focus, apparently: world government. But linear solutions are not going to work in the Internet era. In fact, there is an argument that such solutions will actually make things worse from the Anglosphere's point of view.
Grant Assange is in some way a controlled entity; nonetheless, a group of his peers have split away from WikiLeaks and are setting up their own enterprise, OpenLeaks. If this enterprise is not controlled as well then any control over Assange will make little difference. The larger conversation still remains out of control.
Is Assange in a sense being positioned – knowingly or not – as the controlled opposition? (Perhaps he is merely a courageous individual motivated by strong convictions; and we have acknowledged this possibility as well.) Our suspicions regarding Assange are reinforced, nonetheless, by Chossudovsky, as follows. The following are direct quotes from the article:
• There are reports from published email exchanges that Wikileaks had entered into negotiations with several corporate foundations for funding. (Wikileaks Leak email exchanges, January 2007). The linchpin of WikiLeaks's financial network is Germany's Wau Holland Foundation. ... "We're registered as a library in Australia, we're registered as a foundation in France, we're registered as a newspaper in Sweden," Mr. Assange said. WikiLeaks has two tax exempt = charitable organizations in the U.S., known as 501C3s, that "act as a front" for the website, he said. He declined to give their names, saying they could "lose some of their grant money because of political sensitivities."
• The Role of the Corporate Media: The Central Role of the New York Times. Wikileaks is not a typical alternative media initiative. The New York Times, the Guardian and Der Spiegel are directly involved in the editing and selection of leaked documents. The London Economist has also played an important role. While the project and its editor Julian Assange reveal a commitment and concern for truth in media, the recent Wikileaks releases of embassy cables have been carefully "redacted" by the mainstream media in liaison with the US government. (See Interview with David E. Sanger, Fresh Air, PBS, December 8, 2010). This collaboration between Wikileaks and selected mainstream media is not fortuitous; it was part of an agreement between several major US and European newspapers and Wikileaks' editor Julian Assange.
• The "redacting" role of The New York Times is candidly acknowledged by David E Sanger, Chief Washington correspondent of the NYT: "[W]e went through [the cables] so carefully to try to redact material that we thought could be damaging to individuals or undercut ongoing operations. And we even took the very unusual step of showing the 100 cables or so that we were writing from to the U.S. government and asking them if they had additional redactions to suggest." (See PBS Interview; The Redacting and Selection of Wikileaks documents by the Corporate Media, PBS interview on "Fresh Air" with Terry Gross: December 8, 2010, emphasis added).
• David E. Sanger cannot be described as a model independent journalist. He is member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Aspen Institute's Strategy Group which regroups the likes of Madeleine K. Albright, Condoleezza Rice, former Defense Secretary William Perry, former CIA head John Deutch, the president of the World Bank, Robert. B. Zoellick and Philip Zelikow, former executive director of the 9/11 Commission, among other prominent establishment figures. (See also F. William Engdahl, Wikileaks: A Big Dangerous US Government Con Job, Global Research, December 10, 2010).
• The leaks are being used to justify a foreign policy agenda. A case in point is Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program, which is the object of numerous State Department memos, as well as Saudi Arabia's support of Islamic terrorism. The leaked cables are used to feed the disinformation campaign concerning Iran's Weapons of Mass Destruction. While the leaked cables are heralded as "evidence" that Iran constitutes a threat, the lies and fabrications of the corporate media concerning Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program are not mentioned, nor is there any mention of them in the leaked cables. The leaks, once they are funneled into the corporate news chain, edited and redacted by the New York Times, indelibly serve the broader interests of US foreign policy, including US-NATO-Israel war preparations directed against Iran.
• In recent years, the CIA's relationship to the media has become increasingly complex and sophisticated. We are dealing with a mammoth propaganda network involving a number of agencies of government. Media disinformation has become institutionalized. The lies and fabrications have become increasingly blatant when compared to the 1970s. The US media has become the mouthpiece of US foreign policy. Disinformation is routinely "planted" by CIA operatives in the newsroom of major dailies, magazines and TV channels: "A relatively few well-connected correspondents provide the scoops, that get the coverage in the relatively few mainstream news sources, where the parameters of debate are set and the "official reality" is consecrated for the bottom feeders in the news chain."(Chaim Kupferberg, The Propaganda Preparation of 9/11, Global Research, September 19, 2002).
• Wikileaks and The Economist have also entered into what seems to be a contradictory relationship. Wikileaks founder and editor Julian Assange was granted in 2008 The Economist's New Media Award. The Economist has a close relationship to Britain's financial elites. It is an establishment news outlet, which has, on balance, supported Britain's involvement in the Iraq war. It bears the stamp of the Rothschild family. Sir Evelyn Robert Adrian de Rothschild was chairman of The Economist from 1972 to 1989. His wife Lynn Forester de Rothschild currently sits on The Economist's board. The Rothschild family also has a sizeable shareholder interest in The Economist.
There is much more in the article, and we would encourage people to read it. Chossudovsky points out that "Limited forms of critical debate and 'transparency' are tolerated while also enforcing broad public acceptance of the basic premises of US foreign policy, including its 'Global War on Terrorism' ... We must ensure that the campaign against Wikileaks in the U.S., using the 1917 Espionage Act, will not be utilized as a means to wage a campaign to control the internet." What Chossudovsky does not suggest is that the elite in its desperation to control a freedom-oriented Internet conversation has put itself in the position of sponsoring a controlled opposition that cannot, ultimately, be controlled. (This is in part because as we understand it Chossudovsky, apparently a progressive of sorts, does not believe in an Anglo-American elite.)
When the Gutenberg press came on the scene, the elite of the day apparently contemplated Assange-like strategies. Eventually – some believe – the Venetian banking elite sponsored Martin Luther and funded the Reformation to reduce the power of the Catholic Church. But one could make the case that the Reformation itself got out of hand, causing religious schisming that created more headaches for the powers-that-be than they ever intended; eventually what the Reformation began would contribute to the settling of the New World and the creation of a new and formidable opposition to elite, one-world aspirations.
Conclusion: Even if the elite through its controlled intelligence agencies manages to control WikiLeaks, the evolution of the Internet may spawn other variants that are unexpected and potentially uncontrollable. Whatever Assange is or is not is probably not ultimately the issue (and hopefully WikiLeaks shall do some good). However, the entropy of the Internet is the real concern, and one that the Anglo-American axis has yet to solve in our humble view.

You are certainly right, that mainstream media disinformation is institutionalized to a high degree, and the whole coverage of Wikileaks and J.A. is an pefect example.
Ok, let's analyze a bit.
If you just cover some of the headines in the past two weeks, you will find mainly articles focused on J.A. and his dealing with a alledged sex offense case in Sweden. The story takes place in Europe! Drama in the UK as J.A. turns himself in and gets arrested. Big coverage of J.A. "hidden and secret" life. Court coverage of course adds attention. Terror Attack in Stockholm!!
Cables of interest for the european media: Gossip of european leaders. And Iran.
Meanwhile in the U.S, media mainly focuses on labeling J.A. as an enemy combatant, even an terrorist, WE must hunt him down! Wikileaks is a threat. Transparency is a threat. History is a threat!
You the people are a threat, if you even dare to consider to question our authority! Back to Europe Mika, any news on this rapist guy?
Cables of interest? None! Ah well, Iran of course is interesting, because even the dumbest amongst us must now understand that Iran is an evil country (because the arabian dictator families and a patriotic and heroic US diplomat says so)
See, this is the spin we have to deal with on a daily basis.
There is little word about what the cables realy tell...
And there is esp. a coverup that no one talks about: and this is what Wikileaks is all about!

Wikileaks actually started as an IT project, were the goal was to create a secure information dumping system. This growing developer community realized, that it is not only possible, but also philosophicly interesting to develope a ultimate secure post-box for potentioal whistleblowers. So if the anonymity of a source can be technicaly guaranteed, what in addition is necessary to make a platform like this one work in real world? Well, it turns out the Wikileaks founders were eager to create a system which is legal and uncensorable!
And all these lawyers try to find a loophole to convict one single Aussie ;-)
Wikileaks is bigger than one person. And it's just as Ron Paul once said: it's hard to kill an idea whose times has come. You can kill the messenger, but not the idea itself.
And this is what the elite is facing: a growing number of their own children (=students) are rebelling, be it with the Ron Paul revolution, be it with the philosophic understanding that freedom of thought requires access to viable and verifiable information!

"His general conclusion like ours is that Julian Assange (Pictured above left) is probably NOT what he appears to be, but some good is coming out of L'affaire Assange nonetheless ‒ and we agree."
I would also generally agree with such a conclusion but would most definitely add that he is at least what he appears to be and may also be so much more, but that would be extremely sensitive proprietary information which could easily be classified TS/SCI and strictly Need to Know, and therefore will remain unknown in the public domain.
In such extreme cases though, there is always the very real and present danger of the operative realising the power in the situation, and going rogue/off the reservation, with the Establishment realising far too late that they have effectively handed Lead Control over to a SMARTer Operating System of Virtual Non-State Actors.
And I would share the following little snippet to illustrate that the point is valid and not at unusual, although it may be the case that a growing global recognition with virtually anonymous support for a more advanced and revolutionary derivative of the initial plan, which has the lead program leadership reversed and centred in tame rogue projects, is unexpected and hasn't been planned for ......... [quote]Sunstein and Vermeule also analyze the practice of secret government payments to outside commentators, who are then held out as independent experts; they suggest that "government can supply these independent experts with information and perhaps prod them into action from behind the scenes," further warning that "too close a connection will be self-defeating if it is exposed." Sunstein and Vermeule argue that the practice of enlisting non-government officials, "might ensure that credible independent experts offer the rebuttal, rather than government officials themselves. There is a tradeoff between credibility and control, however. The price of credibility is that government cannot be seen to control the independent experts." .... Click to view link [/quote]
Naturally, one could equally well argue that the situation is under perfect control and it is just a Power Elite adjustment to punish and collapse a subverted and perverted part of the Global System, which has thought itself invincible and immune from retaliatory action and censure by virtue of the threat of Might rather than through the development and exercise of a much more Advanced Intelligence for Beta Greater Game Use.
Failing that being true, Daily Bell, it would then sort of advise every man and his dog that such developments have most probably taken place elsewhere, and are in Play ...... and Running.

Oh, and that last paragraph ... "Failing that being true, Daily Bell, it would then sort of advise every man and his dog that such developments have most probably taken place elsewhere, and are in Play ...... and Running." .... would fully support your own Conclusion .... "Even if the elite through its controlled intelligence agencies manages to control WikiLeaks, the evolution of the Internet may spawn other variants that are unexpected and entirely uncontrollable. The entropy of the Internet is therefore the real issue, and one that the Anglo-American axis has yet to solve in our humble view."
Real Spooky eh?

FYI what Wikileaks has published so far:
The Kaupthing documents (Kaupthing used to be Icelands biggest Bank) revealed a system of corruption and insider trading, showing that shortly before the crash, shady, unsecured loans worth billions were issued.
The people of Iceland rebelled, they overthrough their government in a democratic way and the new parliament unanimously passed unprecedented transparency and freedom of speach and fredom of information legislation. 31 people were elected to form an Constitutional Assembly to find ways to restructure the government system.
Bank Julius Baer documents were released and showed how Offshore Banks creatively move money and also
The Kenian "Corruption and Murder" reports exposed a US$ 3 billion fraud and corruption system of the kenian political clan that is also responsible for killing over 1700 people in order to succeed their political agenda.
10NAIROBI59 i.e shows that US diplomats were very well aware of the high-level corruption, but instead of revealing it to the public, the only way to deal with kenyan corruption is with the helping hand and guidance of UNcle Sams buerocrats.
Not really noticed in the US Mainstrean, Wikileaks published the "Feldjaeger Report", which for the first time since the beginning of the Afghanistan war, showed how german Spec.Ops Teams are involved in US Spec.Ops Operations. This was totally kept from the german public!
Wikileaks published the Guantanamo Handbooks which revealed the systematic nature of how the military treats so called enemy combatants. This is also an insight of how indoctrinated, paranoid military officials "tick"
Then of course there was the release of the Collateral Murder Video " the turning point on how the USG assessed Wikileaks...

And in the Great Game intelligence field, which has been going on since forever Man started to use his brain rather than relying on brawn, some nations have naturals by virtue of IT being in their genes, with it being passed on down through the millenia, and the military are nearly always in the forefront of innovation nowadays, aren't they .....

Anybody fancy that as a red herring to throw the dogs of war off the scent?
And you might like to consider that nowadays, it can also be the case that some naturals choose their nations as their intelligence grows and requirements evolve or situations dictate.

As I said before something is not "right" about Assange. The messenger seems to be becoming the message. All this "persecution" and hounding is starting to seem a bit Salman Rushdie. In fact they should move-in together. They'd make a nice couple.
The trouble with the idea about the "Internet spawning other variants" is that this may be what is intended. Get enough factions creating a multitude of "truth" sites add a dash of Project Camelot type "nuts" and the job is done. So many variations of The Truth and the majority will just lose interest.

DB: "But linear solutions are not going to work in the Internet era. In fact, there is an argument that such solutions will actually make things worse"
Because..., in addition to the internet being a tool of information dissemination, it is also collective memory. When elites rely on previous promotions (lies) to move ahead with new promotions (lies), their rationalizations (pretexts) must, by definition, contradict previous pretexts. The more complex that elite lies get, the further they diverge both from provable reality and, thanks to the internet, provable elite past lies.
In the previous one to many media model, elites had the "memory hole" and were able to rely on information control to redact / hide previous lies. No more.
We, the people ARE WATCHING and, so long as the internet remains free, we collectively remain on a path to freedom (from organized criminals) and a new, improved Renaissence. THINK about it:

Evidence that WikiLeaks is a sponsored controlled leak is the lack of diplomatic cables revealing US interactions with Israel which certainly would be a major subject. One can draw the conclusion the Zionists have been able to carefully edit any cables that would reveal Israeli secrets or interactions with US and British diplomats. In fact, the leaks seem to support and confirm Zionist goals world-wide. We can only hope that these damaging communications will soon be released by a mirror WikiLeaks not under Zionist control.

Oh how quickly our little mice-minds scurry to judgment at the first whiff of a mere morsel of cheesy tabloid-like bit of reportage. A vote has been taken, the accused found guilty in absentia by an assembled jury of his 'fears'. The courtroom itself was within the monitor screens of millions of computers throughout the world. All that was absent was something called "Justice" .... which, except under Napoleonic Law or Roman Civil Law, holds the accused innocent until PROVEN guilty !
Assange = Episode
WikiLeaks = Process
Is it the "episode" or the "process" that is corrupted?
Are our minds so quickly made up? At least DB continues to use the word "possibly" in its own ruminations on the subject. Good word, that.
Reply from The Daily Bell
We would be foolish to declare Assange a purposeful agent of misinformation. We would not fulfill our brief if we did not mention the meme, nor elaborate upon it. WikiLeaks is a "culmination" story, bringing together almost every major theme that the Bell has commented on.
Posted by Krieger on 12/15/10 08:51 AM
you are jumping to conclusions! Please show me one cable that supports your point of view.
You also have to consider that of the 251k cable documents forwarded to the NYT and other newsoutlets, only 1644 (as of today) have yet been released by those news publications.
If we want truthful journalism to really be the forth power of checks and balances for governments, then we need to demand verifiable sources and documents that underly "news".
So basicaly your comment is exactly what todays MSM stand for: opinionism rather than real news and spin rather than facts...
Posted by George Sign on 12/15/10 09:17 AM
Even I have to concede that it is necessary for the Daily Bell to seemingly "sit on the fence" over certain issues. As for the people who "feedback" I would much rather people be forthright in their opinions so as to further the discussion rather than the weak individuals who criticise others without making any contribution themselves. Just a thought to whom so ever it may concern.
Posted by Mpresley on 12/15/10 09:20 AM
I have never much believed in secret conspiracies; without proof it's just so much speculation, and anyone can speculate. Where's the end? Sometimes the mundane and vulgar, while not admitting romantic intrigue, is all there is.
I submit that the combination of Manning, angry and self-righteous over supposed homosexual outrages committed by the military's gay policy, and Assange, a jet-setting narcissistic anarchist controlled by desires and emotions, are sufficient explanation for subsequent events.
Manning will probably never see the light of day, at least anytime soon, and it is ironic that Assange's anarchistic liberalism (at least temporarily) entrapped him with an almost hilarious sex charge. Is he out of jail, yet?
A European blond (naturally an anti-Western, "anti-patriarchal" liberated feminist) has a one night stand with Assange, then is scandalized when he leaves her for another easy woman. So she calls the police, then moves to Palestine where she can wear the hijab and show solidarity her feminist Muslim sisters.
You couldn't make this stuff up. It's too rich to be conspiratorial, but shows the immature, narcissistic, liberal psychology in spades.
Besides, no one needed these cables to understand that the regime was quite corrupt. But what does anyone expect when they elect corrupt individuals, and individuals with a different sense of reality?
Posted by Bill Ross on 12/15/10 09:32 AM
"1644 (as of today) have yet been released"
Wikileaks appears to be engaged in the process of escalation of the significance of leaks, an escalating warning to elites that they must clean up their act to the point that whomever is calling the Wikileaks agenda is satisfied with the reformation (but not elimination) of states, as DB has speculated.
There is also the poison pill (nuclear option) of total, unedited information dump, personally outing ALL players / agendas, should anyone (independent of "plausible deniability") interfere with the release process or harm Assange.
It is possible that elites are being given false hope that, if they step back, the release process will stop, leaving them SOME influence. This "step back" must, by definition be a reduction of elite / state influence or power. This makes the final elite / state "drowning in the bathtub" closer to achievability.
I am also certain that elites are aware of this, which is why they are backed into a corner, a feral and very dangerous beast, "all in", with no resources to do anything but proceed on their doomed present course.
There are some VERY good strategists of nth generation warfare pulling the strings (contriving events) in this matter. I suspect "oath keepers" in CIA / NSA.
When Visa / Mastercard / Paypal restores Wikileaks donations and, a US server with full Wikileaks content exists, this will indicate the tipping point that elites have "blinked".

Perhaps it matters not in the least whether or not Assange is owned.
The Machine is using the event to ramp up surveillance and censorship of the net, cementing fascistic control over the owners of the infrastructure, and working up a justification to kidnap and imprison citizens of other countries for doing things that would (ha!) be protected under the first amendment to the constitution if committed by a U.S. citizen.
So, events proceed according to plan, and the rest is just details.
We've seen that only an amorphous movement can succeed in the face of tyranny. It is an 'organization man' truism that only an organization headed by a charismatic and effective leader can succeed, and conversely that you can destroy such an organization by cutting off the head. But the truism has shown to be false, as evidenced by attempts to co-opt and marginalize what we call the Tea Party movement. You can't lead people who are not followers.
The plain truth is that no 'organization' is needed to publish purloined information on the internet. After the Machine is finished destroying Assange, destroying Wikileaks, putting censorship/fascistic controls on the internet, deploying surveillance technology, and giving itself permission to reach across the ocean to kidnap, imprison, or kill foreign citizens, it will have gotten what it wanted. And then the information will simply leak out anonymously. No charisma needed at all. No 'face' of the opposition. No target to shoot. There are a thousand ways to do it. The clamping down of government to attempt to create a prison planet is a psychological ploy to get the sheeple to meekly comply, lest they be singled out. It will work on most of them. Most of them will even join the chorus in support of killing whoever makes the regime uncomfortable. It doesn't matter. The information cannot be stopped. Little by little, the sheep are beginning to realize that they are on the menu. Even the shock troops are beginning to realize that what they impose on others is the future they forge for themselves and their families.
So cheer them on. Invite them to bring out the big guns. Urge them to over-react, play their trump card early, and lose the hearts and minds of their victims. That's asymmetrical warfare. Just be ready to counter attempts to co-opt, marginalize, deflect, and neuter the intellectual opposition.

"a U.S. citizen."
... more important than other human beings who are subhuman and therefore, expendable coins, collateral damage to be sacrificed for the grasping machinations and goals of others. What US citizens fail to realize is that once planetary servitude is achieved, well, they're next and, for the freedom oriented, already on the menu. It is peace and freedom for all or, perpetual conflict and servitude until this is achieved. We will have peace. The only question is whether it is the peace of species extinction or, peaceful division of labor for MUTUAL self-interest (civilization). It is OUR choice.

Their liberty consists of privileges they are allowed to exercise at the convenience of their owners. The lowest among them will be recruited to keep the herd in line and quiet. As U.S. citizens they have no more say in the direction of foreign policy than any Gulag worker.

"Don't get me started."
I am SURE, that like me, somebody ELSE got you started. Now, like me, you seek to have them finished. Unfortunately, from the perspective of slavers, some do not react as predicted and, matters are rapidly converging to the "untended consequence" of the demise of elites and all of their foul works. In fact, I will go so far as to say that any elite actions diverging from truth and the "rule of law" can only hasten their demise.
This is what happens to all who diverge from truth and natural law. Mother nature (actions inevitably lead to predictable consequences) is not amused and, is on the side of truth and freedom. Our actions cannot be prevented, just reacted to, after the fact.
My god (truth) is more powerful than their false god (coercive power, acquired without earning it and therefore dependent on the consent of those who provide it and, more importantly, can withdraw it and turn it against THEM).
Freedom has already won and, its loss was just an illusion. It is just a matter of overcoming the perceptual inertia of those who are in strategic denial of this fact and, escalating the costs they must pay by continued denial of reality.

no mention of the poison pill file marked "Insurance" "Julian Assange has distributed to fellow hackers an encrypted 'poison pill' of damaging secrets, thought to include details...."
With it's 256k encryption key that is needed to unlock it?
Rumors abound that if unlocked it will cause total anarchy as we see how the tail of the dog is wagging the dog. How our eyes will be opened up to just how they control everything and us with money.
But I think if it is all revealed we being the sheep that we are at least here in the USA will just shrug, for it seem there is no end to the bull and crackers they can feed us that will make us lift even a finger to turn the channel.
We are lost in a sea of shiet and head full of smoke and no one cares about anything. So I ask what really would it take for an all out revolt or revolution? We find out that the Gas and oil cartel controls any revolutionary green technologies and stymies it from being developed? No The money rich power elite control all the worlds money?
No I just can't think of what it would take for us to fire our Government and make changes, I do not think anything would make us move from our chair or lift a finger.
Sorry I have no faith in this country, it people or any other country for that matter. Maybe if we hadn't been bought and sold so many times and left with this hopeless situation or had true leaders that supported us and not their own greedy needs well maybe I would have some faith bit we all just sit back and let things happen and I do not recognize any of this any more. Peace out or War Murder I don't care anymore!
