Re: Venezuela's Chavez threatens to cut oil to U.S.Feb 11th, 2008
When your idea of "good business" and your idol is "profit regardless of consequences", you surrender the right to expect that your practices will command respect. When millions the world over are abused in the name of making a profit and the world is led ever-closer to a war betwen the have's and the have-nots...who's in the position to make that move? When you reduce children to commodities and their future to lines on a ledger like the Gap and Old Navy...when you terrorize a nation and bomb them into the stone-age on the basis of a lie...when you devalue human life in the name of the "bottom line" it's not reasonable to expect anyone to genuflect before your "democracy" or your notions of "freedom". Since America and good solid Americans like ITN put the "end" of gargantuan profits ahead of the "means" of attaining them at a cost to the people of other nationsin terms of their freedom and their beliefs and their future....that makes you a barbarian and someone who's voluntarily un-subscribed from the community of humankind.
The terrible thing about this kind of situation is that the answers have been there on the table for generations and the greed and fraud of achieving the desired "ends" have reduced the moral tone and the respect that any and all Americans practice and deserve.
Consumption without consequence is the credo of the suicide mentality that's ruled the financial capital of the world for generations. every resource of the world as its entitlement at the crack of a gun or the drone of bombers....[/This mentality eschews any idenfification with the rest of humanity and regards the world and evquote]
The Talmudic priests recommend just such a division in mankind between the exhalted chosen and the rejected masses. The rest of humanity counts for nothing with that crowd. When the war for global domination becomes apparent to the middle class consumer it will be very late in the last days indeed. Much of the world like Venezuela realized long ago what way the world was turning, the only uninformed masses that exist, exist in the western world, the rest of the world knows exactly what's written on the wall.
