The Challenge of Governanace

And the need for a new paradigm

We have all been born into a social and economic system that has been steadily becoming more corrupt, unjust and entrenched over the generations. Over the past 600 years or so Europeans have exploited the world by taking resources and dispossessing populations of their natural heritage. This form of profiting by theft, and the rules governing money have allowed the concentration of wealth in the hands of the less than 1%.

Today our world is ruled by capitalism and supposedly free markets, but these markets are not exactly free, they are tightly controlled as is our system of governance. We believe that we are living in a democracy, but like the Greeks

Neo-Liberal Fascism

The destroyers of the world

It’s a popular opinion that we live in free and fair democratic societies where human rights apply, and that every individual has rights and freedoms according to their class. All those rights and freedoms are decided by the individual, and providing they don’t cause harm to anyone that matters, almost anything is permissible.

At an individual level, rights and freedoms are limited by laws and social conventions, but at a governmental or corporate level, things are very different. As a society we have fair degree of tolerance towards small-time bludgers and scam artists who if they are caught may suffer a loss of assets and sometimes prison time.

At a governmental and corporate level,

One World Order

What would it look like?

It’s already here, you just haven’t noticed

The idea of a one world government is the idea of one common political authority for all of humanity ending borders and all currencies but one. It has been much talked of and such a government could come into existence either through violent and compulsory world domination, or through peaceful and voluntary supranational union.

Adolf Hitler wanted to rule the world through violent conquest and fortunately he was stopped although when we look at the world today with all its conflict and suffering, life may have been little different and not necessarily any worse at least for the select few with some autonomy over their lives.

Thinking Outside the Square

1. Remember, half the people you know are below average. 2. He who laughs last, thinks slowest. 3. Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm. 4. The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese in the trap. 5. Support bacteria. They’re the only culture some people have. 6. A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory. 7. Change is inevitable, except from vending machines. 8. If you think nobody cares, try missing a couple of payments.

The only absolute certainty is a closed mind.

If Noah Lived Today

A Kiwi Twist

And the Lord spoke to Noah and said, “In one year, I am going to make it rain and cover the whole earth with water until all flesh is destroyed. But I want you to save the righteous people and two of every kind of living thing on the earth. Therefore I am commanding you to build an Ark.” In a flash of lightening, God delivered the specifications for an Ark.

In fear and trembling, Noah took the plans and agreed to build Ark. “Remember, “said the Lord, “You must complete the Ark and bring everything aboard in one year.” Exactly one year, later, fierce storm clouds covered the earth and all the seas of the earth

Question: What is the truest definition of Globalization? Answer: Princess Diana’s death.

How so you may ask:

Answer :

An English princess with an Egyptian boyfriend crashes in a French tunnel, driving a German car with a Dutch engine, driven by a Belgian who was drunk on Scottish whisky, followed closely by Italian Paparazzi, on Japanese motorcycles; treated by an American doctor, using Brazilian medicines.

This is sent to you by a Canadian, using American technology, and you’re probably reading this on your computer, that uses Taiwanese chips, and a Korean monitor, assembled by Bangladeshi workers in a Singapore plant, transported by Indian truck drivers, hijacked by Indonesians, unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen, and trucked to you

Emissions Trading

Does anybody out there really understand this Emissions Trading Scheme ?

Yes, well, there’s a sort of deadly hush isn’t there ?

I mean, we all know what an emission is. It’s one of those things that slip out and you pretend that it wasn’t you.

If it happens at night it is called nocturnal emission.

Here in New Zealand, our missionary position is that we are blaming it on the livestock. Yes, I have seen the pictures of sorry looking sheep with bags duct-taped to their bums at Lincoln, so some sort of cheap research is going on. Those of you who have traveled in a horse drawn cart will be familiar with the whiffy putt
