Slavery in the 21st Century

Slavery abounds in the world, especially child labour and sex slaves of any age no matter how young everywhere in the world.

These two multimillionaires were recently convicted of keeping domestic slaves which they abused (beating, punishing, no pay, unlawful detention).

We may think we have ended slavery, but this is a deception.

The three most profitable global industries are drugs, slavery and warfare. This is the nature of civilization run for maximum profit at the expense of absolutely everything else. Kevin Trudeau in his book "What They Don't Want You to Know" has marvellously dealt with the drug and health side of the unholy trinity. As for the other two, others and myself have done a decades long study and the real history that is one kept from the average person and is shocking in the extreme. The depths of depravity practised in these situations are Biblical in scope.

Beside being hugely injurious to the global environment, warfare has been, is, and will always be hugely profitable. In most circumstances, the equipment is used only once and must be replaced if the war is to conclude successfully. The more complex the war technology, the higher the profits become. A successful war is one that conquers another group of people and turns them into slaves to profit the victor. If they are unfit as slaves, then they are murdered en-masse and all that they had is redistributed to the victors and participating troops. All wars are about this. There is just no better way to state the truth. We start with an example in the 20th century. Consider Hitler’s war. It was born out of stagflation, high levels of unemployment and extreme misery imposed by the Versailles Treaty of 1918 and complicated by the stock market crash of Oct. 1929. Hitler started off easily enough and wound up with the support of big business. He managed to halt rampant inflation and give people full employment. The employment problem was simply solved by killing off millions of undesirables in their midst. Those not killed were simply worked to death as slaves in places like Peenemüende and Mittelwerk, where Werner Von Braun’s space technology was developed. The setting of man's foot on the moon and the international space station has their beginnings here. In a real sense, Goddard's rocket research was eclipsed by von Braun's.

Those in power always seek maximum profit and one of the ways this is done is by cutting costs including wages. The “ideal” was set in Peenemüende-Mittelwerk where enslaved Jews and others like Poles and Russians were not paid, fed or clothed and were worked around the clock at gunpoint until they dropped dead at the work site. To set the incentive, several public hangings took place every week. The starved to death slaves were removed and more took their place, supplied from concentration camps like Dora close by and Berger-Belsen where actual signed documents by von Braun surfaced after the war. This is how the V-1 and V-2 rockets were developed that rained terror upon Britain and eventually took the US to the moon on their successors, the Saturn 5. Even the Proton Soviet rocket science advanced on Peenemüende and Mittelwerk.

Mass production of the V-2 took place at an underground factory known as Mittelwerk, an offshoot of the notorious Dora concentration camp. Slave laborers brought from as far away as Auschwitz toiled in the dank tunnels and workshops under the brutal direction of the SS. Thousands of these laborers – Jews, political dissidents, prisoners of war, and others – died from disease, starvation and abuse at Mittelwerk. Others were executed, often publicly, as suspected saboteurs. While the details about his activities in the Nazi Party are vague, it is known that von Braun became a member in 1937, and held an honorary rank in the SS.

Established in the summer of 1945, a top-secret project known as Operation Overcast called for the capture of von Braun and hundreds of his colleagues from Peenemünde and elsewhere for purposes of "temporary military exploitation." Of the 350 German scientists mentioned by name in the order, 100 were the so-called "rocket-men," whose pioneering work had resulted in the development and deployment of the V-2. Along with the scientists and technicians themselves, components for 100 of the V-2s were shipped to the United States.

Von Braun, who died in 1977, would eventually become a hero to many for enabling the United States to beat Russia to put a man on the moon. But his legacy includes the production of V-2 rockets with the help of Russian, French and Polish prisoners of war working under deplorable conditions, Neufeld said. About 10,000 of the prisoners died of malnutrition and disease.”…” Von Braun's complicity in Nazi atrocities is less clear, Neufeld said. But there is at least one document, a letter, in which von Braun discusses a trip to the Buchenwald concentration camp, where he apparently spoke to the commandant about obtaining more skilled laborers to use at Mittelwerk.

Everyday 5-6 people were hung in front of the NAZI underground rocket factory in central Germany, Arthur Rudolph was manager of the factory and signed most of these slaves execution orders...after the war he became the head of Rocket building for NASA. This is all true. Our film also features a slave who survived the nazi factory and witnessed Von Braun boasting how they were going to bomb New York with his rocket. There were 34,000 engineering changes to the v-2 rocket during the last year of the war, this means that all these scientists and engineers were at the rocket factory. No one tried to slow down production or make any attempt to save the lives of the slowly starving slaves (you can see this in the film footage I discovered of the US army liberating the nazi rocket factory. Von Braun was no Shindler, he was a cold hearted Nazi who got lucky and never stood trial because of his rocket knowledge. Even today his background is still unknown to many. Again my sources for all this information is the Dept of Justice and the experts from the Smithsonian.” (1)

Real slaves today

"There are more slaves today than were seized from Africa in four centuries of the trans-Atlantic slave trade. The modern commerce in humans rivals illegal drug trafficking in its global reach—and in the destruction of lives." (2)

"Man was born free but everywhere he is in chains." (3)

This article was posted on April 18, 2001.

“When a ship carrying hundreds of people was recently turned away from Benin, Africa, officials suspected that the children on board were human slaves. The incident once again brought attention to the problem of slavery. At this moment, millions of men, women, and children—roughly twice the population of Rhode Island—are being held against their will as modern-day slaves. Sometimes referred to as bonded laborers (because of the debts owed their masters), public perception of modern slavery is often confused with reports of workers in low-wage jobs or inhumane working conditions. However, modern-day slaves differ from these workers because they are actually held in physical bondage (they are shackled, held at gunpoint, etc.). Modern-day slaves can be found laboring as servants or concubines in Sudan, as child "carpet slaves" in India, or as cane-cutters in Haiti and southern Pakistan, to name but a few instances. According to Anti-Slavery International, the world's oldest human rights organization, there are currently over 20 million people in bondage." (5)

Africa

There is still active slave Trading on Africa's West Coast.

"The slave trade in Africa was officially banned in the early 1880s, but forced labor continues to be practices in West and Central Africa today. UNICEF estimates that 200,000 children from this region are sold into slavery each year. Many of these children are from Benin and Togo, and are sold into the domestic, agricultural, and sex industries of wealthier, neighbouring countries such as Nigeria and Gabon.

The most recent incident involved the MV Etireno, which was refused from ports in Gabon and Cameroon. When the ship reached Cotonou, Benin, in April, 2001, police began an investigation of the captain and crew. More adults than children were believed to be aboard. Chattel slavery in Sudan The enslavement of the Dinkas in southern Sudan may be the most horrific and well-known example of contemporary slavery. According to 1993 U.S. State Department estimates, up to 90,000 blacks are owned by North African Arabs, and often sold as property in a thriving slave trade for as little as $15 per human being. Animist tribes in southern Sudan are frequently invaded by Arab militias from the North, who kill the men and enslave the women and children. The Arabs consider it a traditional right to enslave southerners, and to own chattel slaves (slaves owned as personal property). Physical mutilation is practiced upon these slaves not only to prevent escape, but to enforce the owners' ideologies. According to an ASI report: "Kon, a thirteen-year-old Dinka boy, was abducted by Arab nomads and taken to a merchant's house. There he found several Dinka men hobbling, their Achilles tendons cut because they refused to become Muslims. Threatened with the same treatment the boy converted."

In a detailed article by Charles Jacobs for the American Anti-Slavery Group (ASI), Jacobs recounts how a 10-year-old child was taken in a raid on her village in southern Sudan, and branded by her master with a hot iron pot." (5)

India

"Kidnapped from their villages when they are as young as five years old, between 200,000 and 300,000 children are held captive in locked rooms and forced to weave on looms for food. In India—as well in other countries—the issue of slavery is exacerbated by a rigid caste system. The International Labor Rights and Education Fund is one organization that has rescued many of these child slaves. The group recalls this scene: "Children work in damp pits near the loom. Potable water is often unavailable and food consists of a few chapatis [bread balls], onions and salt...The children often are made to sleep on the ground next to their looms, or in nearby sheds. After working from ten to fourteen hours, they are expected to clean out their sheds and set up work for the next day” . (4)

Shackled laborers in Pakistan

“Many of the bonded laborers are shackled in leg-irons in Pakistan. Though much of the debt these cane-harvesters have incurred is real, the practice of exchanging human labor for landowners' loans is illegal. In a 1992 law passed by the Pakistani government, landlords are barred from offering loans in exchange for work or to hold workers hostage to their debts. The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan has freed approximately 7,500 bonded laborers since 1995. By the commission's estimates, there are still roughly 50,000 bonded laborers in southern Singh. Many of those freed now reside in the city of Hyderabad in makeshift camps. Most are afraid to return to their homeland, however, for fear they will be recaptured and enslaved again. Slavery takes different forms in different lands. In Pakistan and India there is debt bondage. Poor people are tricked with promises of good jobs, but they are isolated and must deal with their employer in every way. The food they buy and other required things are sold only by their employers, with very high prices. The workers are forced to stay and work until the debt is paid off. But the deck is stacked so the debt keeps getting bigger. The "employee" is a slave for life. And, even beyond life. The children are kept working until the debt is paid, which never happens. Generations are forced to work without ever seeing a day of freedom.

Like other slaveries, force is used to keep the worker in his place. Beatings, threats and killings are commonplace." (4)

China/Asia

Beyond the Emancipation Proclamation

"Accounts of human beings as modern slaves extend beyond those described here, and include young girls sold into prostitution in Thailand and slave chattels in Mauritania. Though most Americans believe slavery was abolished with the Emancipation Proclamation more than a century ago, the horrors of human beings held in bondage flourishes today. Women in poor Asian countries are tricked into coming into places like Saudi Arabia with promises of jobs. When they get there they are forced to become permanent household slaves, without pay. They are not permitted to leave and are beaten often to control obedience." (4)

Americas

Cane-cutters in the Dominican Republic

In the Dominican Republic, the collection of slaves for the busy harvest season is more random. The Dominican army, with the support of the State Sugar Council (known as the CEA), "hauls Haitians off public buses, arrests them in their homes or at their jobs, and delivers them to the cane fields," according to Charles Jacobs. Some of the cane-cutters sign on to work voluntarily. When the number of workers does not meet the harvest's demand, the Dominican army is set into action. The army's captives are forced to work at gunpoint and beaten if they try to escape.

South America

"The (ABC) expose show next travelled to Brazil, where a different kind of business was involved. In big cities of Brazil there are a lot of unemployed people. A lot of them are very poor and live in very little shacks all crowded together. Lots of them hang out all day and have no hope for the future.

A man would go around and meet teenage girls. He was handsome and talked real smooth. He would flirt with them. He would tell them that he knew where there was a lot of good paying jobs working as maids and cooks. Up in the gold fields of Brazil there were boom towns, filled with rich men and not enough women to do the cleaning and cooking (as in the US, such jobs in Brazil are generally held by women). He would fill their heads with whatever dream seemed to be the girls thing. And he would get them to agree to fly away with him and some other girls he met to a great new opportunity. When they got there, they got some surprises. The boom town turned out to be a few muddy blocks of crummy little shacks. They were told they owed huge amounts of money for the plane ticket and their rent and their food. There were no jobs as maids or waitresses. The only jobs were as prostitutes. They were told they had to be prostitutes and pay back their debts. They would not be allowed to leave. These places were hundreds of miles deep in the jungle and none of the girls knew where they were. There was no phones and no police. The only way in and out was by plane, and no one could afford that, assuming the boss would allow it in the first place. There was only one way to get any money at all.

Girls who refused to go along were beaten. Some who tried to escape were killed. The rest of them were scared and did what they were told. Like in other countries, the debt can never be paid. In the little mining town you had to deal with your boss. He provided the room where the girl slept with customers, and he took most of the money as rent. Every bit of food she bought was bought at his prices. And they made it a point to introduce the girls to alcohol and drugs, which of course were sold only by their boss. Some girls, being very unhappy, were regular customers. The more the girl worked, the deeper in debt she became. And she became a slave. When ABC News with Brazilian police raided this one mining town, they found about 40 teenage girls working as prostitutes for one boss. They asked who wanted to leave this place and go back to the city. Every single one of them raised their hands. Several began to cry." (4)


Slavery is Still Alive Today to the Shame of All of US

More of the Most Disgraceful Forms of Slavery is Sex Slavery for the Tourist Trade

Slavery in the USA Today

During the union busting days under the Carter, Reagan, Bush and Clinton regimes, the President and House of Representatives enacted bills that would allow contractors like General Motors to use prison labor in manufacturing anything they needed at no cost to the contractor. This act helped to destroy unions and end high paying jobs for "more competitive" cheaper resources. As the prisoners, defined as felons and incarcerated for their crimes, had no actual rights, they could be worked without pay. They were housed and fed behind bars and in fetters, including the revival of the chain gang in the US and Canada and their pay was their "housing and meals" paid for by the taxpayer and free to use by corporations looking for cheap labour. This free labor became part of their punishment for crimes committed, crimes including being in possession of marijuana or stealing a slice of pizza because of hunger. Some people are incarcerated as political prisoners, such as nine MOVE survivors and Mumia Abu-Jamal, a MOVE supporter and Black Panther Party spokesperson. There are many others, some belonging to the First Nations. Some 800,000 prisoners are incarcerated for marijuana possession alone, which varies from state to state by laws.

Under one piece of legislation; the Clinton "Three Strikes and You're Out" law meant life imprisonment on the third conviction, which could also be applied retroactively. This meant a person could be convicted even if pardoned earlier and thrown into prison for three past actions. There they became slaves to work under conditions and hours set by the state prison authorities and the contractor without recourse to rights formerly given to labour by union struggle. The US incarcerates more people per-capita than any other nation including the former Stalinist regime in the former USSR. There are eight times more blacks in prison than whites, despite being only twenty percent of the at large population. Millions are behind bars and many are pressed into "service" against their will, sometimes at gunpoint, as slaves and punished severely if they refuse to comply. They are punished by "baking" them in the sun without water, starved, placed in solitary confinement or judged mentally incompetent and experimented upon in secret within what has been defined as "a prison within a prison". Sound frightening? It is, and unfortunately true. The program gained momentum with the collapse of the former Soviet Union beginning in Feb. 1989 and culminating by 1992.

"An ABC TV show recently did an expose on slavery as it exists today. It focused on three countries: India, Brazil, and the United States." (4)

"Why would slavery ever exist? The reason is money. Employees cost money. It's a lot cheaper to steal their labour than pay them."

"The surprising thing is that it actually goes on in the United States (today).....

......The slavery uncovered in the United States was not prostitution like in Brazil. It was not manufacturing work like in India and Pakistan. It was not household servant like in Kuwait. But it was worked a lot like them. A guy would go around places where unemployed people would hang out and offer them jobs working on a farm. "It's just temporary" they would say. A farmer would need help picking his oranges or his cotton or his sugar cane just for a few weeks. They could all ride up there, work for a few weeks, and come back to the city with a few dollars in their pockets. People were picked up in all the major cities of Florida. They would load up in vans and station waggons and head out. They would go to places like Georgia and South Carolina. When they got there they moved into a compound surrounded by fences and barbed wire. Vicious dogs patrolled all night. The bosses got them up early. They were worked hard all day long. They were charged room and board that was more than they got paid. They were encouraged to buy liquor and drugs on credit. None of the workers was allowed to leave. When they worked, they had a overseers armed with shotguns. They were marched to work, and marched home again. They never saw a telephone. They never saw an outsider. And they picked cotton all day long. Sometimes it was other crops. Sooner or later the cotton would be picked, and the workers would want to go home like he promised. But they could not leave. They owed a lot of money. So the boss took them out late at night and drove them to some other big farm where they needed help with the crops, and it started all over again. These places were all on private property, far away from the road. They never saw any outsiders. No one knew they were there. If anyone knew, they didn't care. The people they worked for and that the boss got paid by were rich important people in their area. The workers were nobody. Most of the slaves were poor black people, but some of them were poor white people too. In this one operation, it was actually a black man who was the slave driver. Some of the people rescued had been slaves for years. Others were younger. One young black man talked about how now he finally knew what it was like for his ancestors. He said he would never pick cotton again, not for all the money in the world." (4)

What makes a slave? Get ‘em young, treat ‘em rough and tell ‘em nothing! The best way to capture a person for life and keep them in thrall, is to cut them off from nature. This is an extension of taming an animal and making a dependant pet out of it. Block any knowledge that could allow this person to live independently from the land, sea or by agriculture. Keep them as virtual babies until the day they die. Perpetuate this through the generations, making adult babies train real babies to remain babies throughout life and promulgate this as natural, civilized and adult behaviour. Set up laws and restrictions that deny access to resources and land based on economic criteria alone. Enforce this with policing and military intervention to the point of torture and death if necessary using example targets that are publicized on the mass media. Train people to specialize in a very narrow focus that is meaningless outside of the greater context. Teach them hierarchical respect toward fabricated deities and their appointed representatives in the form of the ruling powers, the military and religious authorities. Enhance this through bullying, brutality and pain compliance techniques. Work them so hard so that there is no energy left for anything else like questioning. Demonstratively punish all those who “step out of line.” Make examples at random by disassociating and alienating some from the work force so that there is little chance to survive outside of shamming charity. Work them hard and give them less than nothing. Offer artificial rewards and distractions. Part of these artificial distractions are poisonous things and addictive traps that develop habits that deepen slavish dependence such as tobacco, alcohol, drugs and gambling. Condemn all natural aptitudes like the appetite for sex outside of mass production of the next generation. Keep them sickly and at a low level of energy but drive them like a drill sergeant or an athletic coach, demanding more output than what is put in. Keep ‘em tired and enervated. Bureaucracy, bureaucracy bureaucracy ad-nauseum to keep them running in circles and jumping through hoops like circus animals and treat them with open contempt. Keep them in the dark, deny access to real knowledge and use overwhelming amounts of misinformation and lying propaganda to bury the truth. Keep them distracted on the big issues and focused on personal pains at all times. Exploit natural appetites, subvert and pervert them to grease the wheels of wealth making through gross consumerism to the point of ruining the planet. In lieu of providing an adequate level of income that can support people’s needs, provide access to high interest credit. Always watch them like hawks in wait for their next prey. Deal harshly upon those who “wake-up” to the truth of the foregoing and threaten to spill the beans whether actual or perceived.

This is history past, present and the future if it is allowed to continue. Finally there is the fear factor, cultivated through a number of avenues. Slavery is always enforced rigorously with terror. One is through religion by means of a wrathful and vengeful deity who expresses it most often through representatives. Recall the witch hunts and the Spanish Inquisition of previous centuries. Today, gay people bear the brunt of religious attack and brutality. Then there is bullying through military and police forces. We don’t need to look to hard for this one as the news is full of it. Witness Rodney King’s treatment. Does this sound like terrorism? Yup, you bet it is! Terrorism did not start at 9-11, it merely took on emergency, international dimensions when the state perceived itself under attack by methods used routinely on the people world wide as far back in history as you care to look. “If you want a vision of the future Winston, imagine a jack boot stamping on a human face forever.” George Orwell, 1984.

This sounds like life in civilized society today, doesn’t it? Today, the most common form of slavery is wage slavery, hidden in plain view by deception and maintained by international corporate greed for ever more vast profits at the expense and lowering of standards for the overwhelming majority of working poor world wide. On top of this, contempt, alienation and divisions along every conceivable line is maintained. For example, black against white, Christian against Muslim, straight versus gay, young versus old, man against woman and vise versa, etc. Many people live hand to mouth, paycheck to paycheck and on tainted and poisoned food, water and environments. In our country, most people attending food bank distribution are the working poor, whose income is insufficient to allow survival without this form of welfare. Economic welfare is being eliminated in flavor of this method. So called guaranteed income for need is a carrot forever dangled tantalizingly before our eyes, while our very entrails are used as a the lash to keep us productive, backs bent to the wheel of civilized progress. Instead of raising thousand ton obelisks as in Egypt, we launch rockets. Here a captive clientele can be fed whatever the corporations desire and on the donations from more charitable souls. They can feed them GMOs or anything they like in one grand experiment after another. If this “welfare” were banned, then people would simply starve to death in the richest country on the planet. Food banks distribute a lot that is outdated and sometimes unfit for human consumption. These outlets are an ideal drop zone for poisoned foodstuffs.

Medicare-Medicaid programs are being led down the path of the dinosaurs, despite the weak reforms of Obama. This once universal health care inspired by the existence of the USSR with its full medical, educational and full employment, was designed to keep people from going communist and is something no longer required because communism has been dealt a death blow. It’s now pay as you go or just suffer the agonies of hell until you collapse in a horrific death writhing in agony all the way. This is a very public battle, just as the elimination of welfare and pensions are. It is meant to be in order to force compliance on the population. We are informed, “There is no money!” As you say “It’s all about the money.” One of the ways to enforce this exaggerated dichotomy of wealth is via threats, intimidation, bullying and continual pain compliance techniques. Technology in this sector is now mind boggling and horrific in scope such as the plasma taser and aspects of HAARP. Eyes and ears are everywhere as neighbour is pitted against neighbour, friend against friend and so on.

So then, what does it take to make a slave? Take people away from nature. From the point of view of the civilizing world, that is to raise them up from being “mere animals” and prancing savagery. No longer are they to live off the wild land and follow the herds for hunting, nor fishing in wild rivers and oceans. This is usually affected through the children who are snatched away and forced to learn another culture. Further, remove them from the land so that they forget how to raise plants and animals for food. Put the sum of agriculture into the hands of a few magnates with their machines and mass production, assembly line techniques. Again, this is affected best by snatching away the children for re-education. Place them in conclaves of production where all they have left of themselves are their bodies to throw into the profiteering Satanic mills. Then in the full blossom of ignorance, you can do what you will at your every whim with them. When an employee is laid off or fired and dumped onto the streets with no recourse for other support and total ignorance in how to live without a job and money. This drives some people mad; enough to go postal, killing everyone they can possibly kill before committing suicide. The news always splashes this across the headlines frequently. Even children who are bullied into insanity can go this route. Yet, when the story is told, the bullying that triggered these outbursts is left out of the story. This in a nutshell is the civilizing process! If you find yourself here; almost everything you know is dead wrong!

The ignorance of the masses is the bliss of the wealthy rulers

We are kept in an immature state very much like pets. In the wild, dogs and cats are predators that live off what they can capture, kill and devour. In the wild, the Australian Aborigine, the Kalahari Bushman and Amazonian tree people can live in hostile environments that would quickly kill their civilized counterparts. As stated earlier, the process of conquest includes the idea of separating the generations so that the children loose the contact with nature that their parents can transmit to them. This crucial knowledge is replaced with confusing gibberish, which is what constitutes much of religious teachings. Pliny the elder summed it up when he stated that in all his travels and encounters with the myriad of beliefs and gods within differing cultures the one consistent pattern that always stood out was the forces of nature alone and not acts of angered imaginary deities. When Pompeian people shuddered under the explosion of Vesuvius in 79 AD, It was Pliny who understood the basic nature of what was going on, while others rued the fact that temples to deities were not built in a timely way. The money for temples was instead accrued by the wealthy for personal use in the period leading up to the moment of catastrophe. Pliny the elder perished from the explosion and it was left to his son to carry on.

Only a relative few comprehend what is going on and the complex web of interrelated events and processes that make up nature. To sum up, in order for complex life to even exist as we know it, there must be in operation a simultaneous set of conditions in operation, any one of which if missing, spells the demise of complex life. Even the learned are ignorant of much around them due to over specialization. It takes an inter-disciplinarian to begin to understand these ideas. Specialization and narrow focused world views will kill us, especially during a natural catastrophe. If people rely on salvation from some outside source during crisis, they are bound for disappointment. Instead, a worthy pursuit would be to learn at an early age, just how to survive in the wild, or at least how to care for plants and animals which form the base of our food pyramid.

But to effectively control a population, you must make them dependant upon your mercies even if you are not inclined to mercy. What this means is, that if you no longer need the services of certain sectors of the population, simply cut them off and let nature dispatch them! That way one’s hands are apparently free of blood stains, simply because connections cannot or will no be made by most. An effective tool in the promotion of such a pogrom is hate mongering. Religion often plays a crucial role in this. We become contemptuous of others on the fabrication and lies, propagandized by the wealthy and powerful. We are led to believe that it is the will of God that certain people are worthy of destruction. We are even encouraged to believe that natural calamities are a result of the failure to dispatch these undesirables. This is best exemplified by the rants of Pat Robertson, to whit, “I would warn Orlando that you're right in the way of some serious hurricanes, and I don't think I'd be waving those flags in God's face if I were you, This is not a message of hate -- this is a message of redemption. But a condition like this will bring about the destruction of your nation. It'll bring about terrorist bombs; it'll bring earthquakes, tornadoes, and possibly a meteor." –on "gay days" at Disney World Apparently, Mr. Robertson is somewhat up to speed on contemporary scientific thinking and uses it to buttress up his image of an angry, narrow minded and bigoted god, a god that creates the reality of sex and then says, “No you can’t do except under rigorous controls imposed and monitored by my appointees. Deviate from this and I will punish you now and then torture you beyond the end of time in the after life.”

Bear in mind the phenomenon described above are all nature based with the exception of terrorism. Yet somehow, we are to believe that gay people are responsible for hurricanes, exploding volcanoes and meteoric impacts. “God” in his infinite wisdom must destroy others because we allow gay day at Disney World. Disney World in itself is a pure fabrication! So “God” will destroy a nation over a lie! No, it will be an act of nature, some of which we have fed into with our destruction of the planet with our “culture” of profit driven consumerist madness, polluting everything we touch like a barnyard Midas. The planet cannot sustain the current level of destruction without consequences. We are seeing these things manifest now despite what nay-sayers are denying in the mounting and growing evidence. We can stop this now, but, it’s all about the money, so we’ll go to destruction en-masse for the greed of a few and the illusions of the good life held out to the rest of us as a holographic carrot. A confusing array of misinformation is circulated to keep things just as they are. Innocent people are systematically targeted and destroyed for the crimes of and corruption by others such as the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal, framed for killing a cop that someone else confessed to doing. There is a war on and yes, it is about terrorism, but right in our midst and not by an outside agent whether cultural or divine. Under such a mindset, a genocidal maniac is preferable to two people of the same sex being in love with one another. The latter is promulgated as the greater crime punishable, not by God, but by bullying bigots, in the cruelest ways possible! As long as we are brutalizing each other on command and belief, the real criminals get away with their monstrous activity often in full view of everyone and with light criticism and a jail term in a resort setting if caught. The poor hungry person goes to a high security prison and is furtively tortured for life for stealing a slice of pizza to alleviate hunger. This is a total perversion of basic justice! It ignores the facts in obvious flavor of an illusory fantasy. We have in essence, inadvertently all become slaves!

This is an incredibly important Hub. The facts and issues raised here are worthy of much debate and lots of pubicity.
