Chocolate – Our exploitation of workers

As we eat perhaps even more chocolate than usual on a day for the Christians among us, the masses go round stuffing their faces unaware or uncaring at the level of our corporate exploitation of black workers. Slavery never went away, it just got buried by those in the marketing and advertising professions whose evil daily work covers up their corporate masters greed and profiteering at any cost. Economic slaves taste chocolate for the first time

Ban private cars from our city centres

Our cities our polluted, we are all being harmed by the people driving into them in their four wheel drives and Audi/BMW/VW etc etc etc. So no more private cars should be allowed, only buses, taxis, short term rental cars, bicycles, scooters, motorcycles and maybe even these could be like renting the Boris bikes. It would be better for our health and our journey times would be reduced. The Twizy

THE POORER YOU ARE, THE LESS LIKELY YOU ARE TO VOTE -Think about this UK and US

This is an interesting report produced by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation on how poor people are less likely to vote in an election. It is a report about the UK but applies to the US or any other demmocracy. I think I heard on the news the other day that Hillary Clinton will raise a billion US dollars for her campaign and I wondered how much of that would be spent on trying to persuade the poorest 20% of American citizens to vote, the ones that own only 0.3% of US wealth. If you truly believe in a real democracy and not a sham read this. http://www.jrf.org.uk/blog/2015/04/vote?utm_content=bufferb3ab8&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer

A Time for Change

If we continue in our current way there can only be more war and more poverty. While some large corporations plunder our planet for short term gain the ecological poverty that is caused will affect us all. Above all we need inclusion for every human being not replacement by technology, technology must be used to aid us in reducing our individual workload not replacing individuals. The information revolution must be used to connect individuals and not in some of the vacuous ways we see at the moment in social media. Individuals who buy food and clothes from other countries must be connected with the individuals who grow the coffee and who pick the cotton or sew the clothes that they buy. Only then will we be able to stop the horrendous exploitation that occurs between 1st world consumers and 3rd world producers.
