Meme on Governments, Capitalism and the Economics of War

This is another piece from the over 18 site, 1000 Natural Shocks, that also accurately describes the way governments and big business work to promote war in order to boost the economy. And it also describes the situation over here. Our government has also heavily promoted arms sales to foreign governments around the world, including those, like the Saudis, where human rights are minimal or non-existent. And Cameron is clearly pushing for war against Syria, despite the opposition of the majority of the great British public.

    In November I helped host a discussion at the House of Commons on the Ethics (!!) of the UK Arms Trade, one of the speakers was Andrew Feinstein a politician in South Africa (he worked against apartheid), but in the last 10 years has undertaken very brave research re the shadow world of the arms trade, the information he relates in this short clip is hair-raising: https://youtu.be/2F6J4Xvdkuo

    For a fuller speech from him and more on the hidden dynamics within politics, here is an extended speech from Andrew a couple of weeks later at Medact: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_LdFfYhqD0

      Thanks, Michelle. This is going to be very interesting indeed. And I share your astonishment that the arms trade could ever be considered ethical.

    Reblogged this on amnesiaclinic and commented:
    Wars are very big business. As General Smedley said, “War is a racket”.
    Ordinary people fight the wars and pay for them with their taxes and then have to fund the rebuilding or the chaos which ensues with the chaos.
    Finding the source or the reasons that the bankers find to push for wars is vital.
    Going back to JFK and why and how he was assassinated and then looking at the roots of the current wars it might be very useful to look at Judy Wood’s incredibly detailed work in her book,”Where did the 2 towers go?”
