Corporate Media

Leave a comment

With much excitement, I buy the Hindustan Times and Times of India yesterday to read details of Lokpal debate and some specifics.

However, it was a shame that corporate media today is as much corrupt and is on side of corrupt dictator govt. Nowhere the details and specifics of Anna’s demand were highlighted or discussed.

I see how much corporate / media influences politics today that none of the parties agreed for amendments to get them under Lokpal. So much of insistence on thin crowds by media? No insistence on Janlokpal bill specifics?

I am about to vomit on the state of politics and sad to see the dead conscience in race for money which is fictitious!! Ha! We see the true face of media and politicians now. See some specifics and details of govt’s jokepal here:

Corruption! What is it and where is it?

1 Comment

The time is now to see what is Corruption and where is it and understand to take charge of situation. Corruption is when:

Your Basic rights become privileges:

  • You have to bribe for basic amenities which are your basic rights such as water, electricity, roads, civic amenities, proper billing, proper food, health care, traffic.
  • When you have forgotten that these are basic rights and not privileges in a civil democratic society.
  • When the right to speak and demonstration is curtailed (Baba Ramdev at Ramlila ground and Anna at Tihar Jail.. These are only the recent and prominent ones).
  • When we are just working as servants without self respect in MNC’s just waiting for our new salaries to be fed in next month as hand to mouth. We becoming slave labor in hands of MNC’s which sometime seem Indian but have FDI via web of investments.
  • When boss is always right and you always kill your self-respect.
  • When we just cut up peers to climb up the ladder of success
  • Working and studying and progressing doesn’t seem to end in satisfaction and happiness.
  • When education is void of any research and experience whilst what is encouraged is mugging up and vomiting back on papers. When education is only about development of your left sided brain.
  • When a BPO culture and repetitive robotic work without novelty (IT) is considered ‘the’ industry to work with.

Politics is no more a social service, but a abuse and a dirty word:

  • Rigging of elections is common and now accepted as a norm. Chidambaram was declared lost in last elections but magically came out as victorious in few hours as few ballots were left uncounted.
  • When credibility of foreign electronic voting machines is questionable and when Chief election Commissioner is appointed by ruling party congress.
  • When all bureaucrats and state governors are changed with change of party at centre.
  • CBI and Income tax are tools in hands of ruling party where they suppress even honest individuals with false changes on anyone who stands up-to-them.
  • Justice is made late and denied in multiple levels of corruption. Chief Justice is found corrupt and no action is taken.
  • When deals like nuclear deal are done in interest of US and Europe corporations (It could have been done at 25% of cost with indigenous scientists and materials. Congress chose to ignore the recommendations.)
  • When there is mass deception of truth. (Congress and DMK plans to sell vast resources of Thorium below Ram Setu to US. The real reason behind contemplation to break the historic bridge)
  • When out of 12 of 18 doctors in Obama panel are Indians and Sonia goes out of India to get some treatment of a secret disease.
  • When Raul Vinci (real name of Rahul Gandhi on passport) and Antonia Edvige Albina Maino (Name of Sonia Gandhi) are barely high matriculate, catholic christians (real issue being deception), fudge their certificates, lie about education and when they are Italian citizens and travel on Italian passports.
  • Idiot Rahul Gandhi being promoted as future Prime Minister. He doesn’t have guts to come for a debate in open public forum.
  • Servants of nation (MP’s/MLA’s) decide their salary on their own.
  • Nil transparency in governance.

Money becomes Fictitious:

  • We just exchange promissory notes today (remember I promise to pay the bearer.. what is the promise to pay for??) which do not have any intrinsic value (backing of gold/silver). This is a hard truth that majority of circulation money is in digital form and doesn’t even exist on paper. It is printed (typed) in endless quantity by RBI. Read here.
  • When inflation is due to government accumulating foreign reserves in abundance. The private federal reserve bank of US prints digital dollars endlessly which government of India is bound to buy and cannot sell. This is a major cause of inflation and rupee depreciation. Each import costs more and causes further inflation.
  • When there is no accountability and traceability of taxes and money being extorted from public in name of frivolous taxes.
  • When taxes precede subsidy and are actually the real cause of the cost. Primarily being petrol, Diesel, LPG.
  • Petrol is costly due to government taxes. Govt taxes form 39.9% of the price)
  • When any increase in salary is less than inflation and eaten up with ever increasing taxes. At office, each step is more competition to cut down peers.
  • When home loans duration seem endless and ever increasing.
  • When students have to now take loans and pay years after education is complete and feed into greedy banks profits and education mafia.
  • When Indians put 59% of their income in taxes which are paid in thousands of forms (excise, income, customs, VAT, CVAT etc) and we wonder why inflation is increasing and savings being lost.
  • When salaried person doesn’t even get to see money in hand. It is deducted at source.
  • Taxes increasing every year every month.
  • Tax breaks are pushed as per where government wants you to spend, be it infrastructure bonds, share market, real estate or travel industry or medicine. Tax breaks are given accordingly. Most of these investment areas are highly leveraged and derivatives driven.
  • It is said by economists all over the world that there would be no need of taxes if governments are not corrupt. A true free economy is always self driven and socially oriented.
  • Merchants pay upto 39% taxes in various forms which get transferred to consumer in end. There are around 799 types of taxes in India.
  • In the end only 9.09% of taxes are spent on public welfare whilst rest is spent on parliament, govt salaries, pensions, government bills, parliament bills.. which they spend lavishly without control.
  • Each year the fiscal deficit increases because government takes loan from RBI to be returned at an interest. This cannot be returned obviously and hence fiscal deficit increases. This is again one reason of fictitious money and inflation.
  • When consumption is engine of growth for economy. After all, natural resources are limited.
  • Increasing fiscal deficit of country.
  • When in future you’ll be asked to pay for breathing out carbon dioxide and you have to buy carbon credits (Global warming is the false science created for selling creating carbon credits market)

When God is closed in Books and temples/Culture:

  • When religion is vaticanised and run like an corporate
  • Vaticanisation of religion and corporatisation of Spiritual centres of worship with trusts like Vaisho Devi Shrine Board, Tirumala Devasthanam, Old kerala temple where fortunes were discovered. All the trusts are for profit now and proceeds go to govt of India.
  • When temple services are turned to professionals.. ISCKON Bangalore alone earns more than what Colgate Palmolive earns in whole India, and the money is sent to ISCKON trust USA.
  • Spiritual centres of worship are being destroyed
  • When we feel ashamed in using our mother tongue socially. Take example of any world’s nation: Germany, France, Russia, China, Spain.. All use thier mother tongue.. all education and IT is as per their language. It is proven fact that child learns 10 times faster in his mother tongue than in any foreign language. We have to write this article shamefully in English for wider reach.
  • China is opening Manadarin schools all over the world. Written Hindi is believed to be disappearing and be extinct in next 49 years.
  • All software companies manufacture software for them in their local languages. It comes too late and too little for Indian languages.
  • When our social fabric is being tore down by deliberate inclusion of movies on gay culture.
  • When governments wants you to remain foolish and be engrossed in cricket, television shows and daily increasing vulgarity in cinema.

Pollution/Medicine:

  • When Clean water is no more in your ground and tap and you have to buy a Kinley or Bisleri for it.
  • When pure water is approx at same cost of a carbonated drink.
  • When the social medical care and education are diminished deliberately to push private interests and created into corporate mafia
  • When Doctors get corrupted with Pharma companies kick-backs and play with public health.
  • When pollution causes your honey bees, butterflies and sparrows to disappear.
  • When you pay hefty amount for healthcare in a private hospital and just get temporary relief. You are just a file in hospital in midst of machines and test reports.
  • When companies like Monsanto play with health of public by introducing genetically modified food.

When you live in a Control Society/Police State and do not realise it (bars are invisible):

  • When you get monitored in every way possible: Dish TV on what you watch, CCTV, Cameras, Telephone, Police checking everywhere, Social media on what you do and interests are.
  • Fear is the controlling element. Fear of terrorism, strangers, death or anything with which you can be divided.
  • When media and cinema is controlled and highly censored. They just throw cricket and entertainment at you.
  • When you fear your government and not government fears you.
  • When you cannot be fearless talking to police.
  • When you have more chance of getting harassed by police officer than by any terrorist.
  • When we can’t make difference between police and thieves.
  • When we fear policeman more than terrorists
  • When farmers get shot on agitating for corporate builder mafia grabbing their land in co-hoots with corrupt government officials.
  • When 18 RTI whistleblowers are killed in last two years for raising their voice against corrupt.
  • When chain snatching and murder are common in your neighbourhood.
  • When you don’t file an FIR because you feel intimidated by criminals
  • When perverts are not caught for raping
  • Terrorism is uncontrolled and zero intelligence to tackle it.
  • When threat of terrorism is used to carry out agendas. Small example – Removal  of Baba Ramdev from Ramlila maidan

When Corporations are mad after profits:

  • Corporation loot natural resources, cut forests, kill wildlife, introduce package food and poison food with chemical additives, pesticides and insecticides which are major source of diseases like cancer.
  • When cancer and other diseases are big industry and their cures are not encouraged, rather suppressed.
  • Companies like Union Carbide (Bhopal) and Enron (Dabhol) create disasters on Indian soil, bribe politicians and leave with zero accountability
  • When products become of inferior quality and what just sells is marketing gimmicks and lies.
  • When we see our defense/army being corrupted in various scandals and scams whilst our territory being slowly occupied by China.

The above is the tip of iceberg awareness which ministers like Sibal do not wish to happen. Fools would simply snub the above information whilst critical thinkers use internet and their observation to find the truth in above. Many pages of Facebook/Internet have abundant information and discussions on them. Support Janlokpal.. Now you might now understand why this is SO BIG and SO IMPORTANT. Please forward this to as much as you can and support the movement. It’s not important that you support or do not support Anna Hazare. Important is that you stand up for what’s right. Watching news and patriotic movies is not enough. DO not get accustomed to your sufferings. Once you have internet censorship, you will not be able to send such emails.

Even one makes a difference. Governments are for profit and they will give any statements to divert your attention. Corporate Media supports it.

Official Secrets act was fought over by activists like Aruna Roy and Anna Hazare. RTI was provided with hard work of Aruna Roy and Anna Hazare. You see the crackers of corruption cases one by one in last few years. RTI is reason of the same. Governments used to suppress the facts earlier in name of national security and public peace. 18 activists in last two years are killed because they wanted to stand against corrupt system. They were fighting for collective social rights which includes you. Muck is thrown at every activist like Kiran Bedi and Arvind Kejriwal. Do not get misled by false government propaganda and corporate media which tries to make opinion.

The time is NOW. You need to BE AWAKE and STAND UP even if you are alone. The answer however is LOVE and civil disobedience.

Revolutions do not happen every-day. There is no stopping of an idea whose time has come. This is your life time chance to create history and be a witness to social inclusive growth and happiness. The biggest contribution you can do is first get educated and share this email/post with your friends. Be involved in intelligent news. Think critically. Be active partner in social change. Every voice matters. You are part of collective consciousness.

Send this email to as many friends and family you know and copy civilactiondelhi@hush.com. Share this on your blog/facebook/orkut. We get to know the response these ways. Read and like Facebook pages like Occupy 4 India (Yuva-against-corruption), India Against Corruption, read http://www.occupyindia.wordpress.com. There is abundance of alternate media.

NOW is the time. Now is your chance.

Score your Sheeple Quiz

To score your Sheeple Quiz, simply count the number of times you answered “A” to the questions above.

If you answered “A” 10 times or more…

You are a total news-watching, gullible fairytale swallowing Sheeple! Be sure to keep taking those medications and watching more network news. Don’t bother thinking for yourself because you seem to be incapable of accomplishing that.

If you answered “A” fewer than 10 times…

You are sadly Sheeple-minded but there is hope for your rescue. Learn more about the world around you and train yourself to think critically so you can depart from the herd mentality.

If you answered “A” fewer than 5 times…

You are an unusually intelligent free-minded thinker who questions the world around you and doesn’t buy into the usual propaganda. You still got suckered on a few items, so there’s more yet to learn. But you’re on the right track!

If you answered “A” exactly zero times…

You are the complete opposite of a Sheeple. You’re independent minded, well informed and probably a regular reader of occupyindia.wordpress.com. Stay on track and question events in the world around you.

Keep reading the alternative press and voice your intelligent views to others willing to listen. (But don’t waste your time on those who aren’t.)

Control Society

Leave a comment

Mass Surveillance is scary.. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_surveillance) but this is already happening. Each and every word on FB and internet is tracked and logged. Can you see the control society? Come UID.. Unique Identification.. Then you will not be able to hide anywhere and speak against Govt anyhow. Kapil Sibal’s statements would seem joke to you. Excuses are anything, terrorism to religious extremism, security of the State or public order.

FB and Gugle have already started uniquely identifying people with their phone nos. These controls will be made stronger in future.

Anyone standing against corporate power is already being crushed. You have seen examples earlier. (Harvinder vs Sharad Pawar, Chetanya Kunte vs Burkha Dutt). You’ll be tried just like Harvinder Singh. He is presently in a mental hospital. You can see the results of speaking against government or corporate giants. There is no free spch anymore.

Start protesting and standing up to your rights now. Freedom is always precious. You cannot complain that nobody warn you. Control society is in making and infront of your eyes.

I will post some more views later on. In comments you can help with the examples of control society in everyday life.

WAR IS A RACKET

1 Comment

WAR is a racket. It always has been.

The pioneers of a warless world are the youth that refuse military service. – Albert Einstein

It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious.

It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.

A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small “inside” group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.

In the World War [I] a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during the World War. That many admitted their huge blood gains in their income tax returns.

How many other war millionaires falsified their tax returns no one knows. How many of these war millionaires shouldered a rifle? How many of them dug a trench? How many of them knew what it meant to go hungry in a rat-infested dug-out? How many of them spent sleepless, frightened nights, ducking shells and shrapnel and machine gun bullets? How many of them parried a bayonet thrust of an enemy? How many of them were wounded or killed in battle?

Out of war nations acquire additional territory, if they are victorious. They just take it. This newly acquired territory promptly is exploited by the few – the selfsame few who wrung dollars out of blood in the war. The general public shoulders the bill.

And what is this bill?

This bill renders a horrible accounting. Newly placed gravestones. Mangled bodies. Shattered minds. Broken hearts and homes. Economic instability. Depression and all its attendant miseries. Back-breaking taxation for generations and generations.

There are 40,000,000 men under arms in the world today, and our statesmen and diplomats have the temerity to say that war is not in the making. Yes, all over, nations are camping in their arms. The mad dogs of Europe are on the loose. In the Orient the maneuvering is more adroit. Back in 1904, when Russia and Japan fought, we kicked out our old friends the Russians and backed Japan. Then our very generous international bankers were financing Japan. Now the trend is to poison us against the Japanese. What does the “open door” policy to China mean to us? Our trade with China is about $90,000,000 a year. Or the Philippine Islands? We have spent about $600,000,000 in the Philippines in thirty-five years and we (our bankers and industrialists and speculators) have private investments there of less than $200,000,000. Yes, they are getting ready for another war. Why shouldn’t they? It pays high dividends. But what does it profit the men who are killed? What does it profit their mothers and sisters, their wives and their sweethearts? What does it profit their children? What does it profit anyone except the very few to whom war means huge profits? Yes, and what does it profit the nation?

WHO MAKES THE PROFITS?

It’s the trillionaire bankers who finance the wars from both the sides. The weapon manufacturing corporations sell weapons to both the sides fighting the war.

The World War, rather our brief participation in it, has cost the United States some $52,000,000,000. Figure it out. That means $400 to every American man, woman, and child. And we haven’t paid the debt yet. We are paying it, our children will pay it, and our children’s children probably still will be paying the cost of that war. The normal profits of a business concern in the United States are six, eight, ten, and sometimes twelve percent. But war-time profits – ah! that is another matter – twenty, sixty, one hundred, three hundred, and even eighteen hundred per cent – the sky is the limit. All that traffic will bear. Uncle Sam has the money. Let’s get it. Of course, it isn’t put that crudely in war-time. It is dressed into speeches about patriotism, love of country, and “we must all put our shoulders to the wheel,” but the profits jump and leap and skyrocket – and are safely pocketed.

Let’s just take a few examples: Take our friends the Du Ponts, the powder people – didn’t one of them testify before a Senate committee recently that their powder won the war? Or saved the world for democracy? Or something? How did they do in the war? They were a patriotic corporation. Well, the average earnings of the du Ponts for the period 1910 to 1914 were $6,000,000 a year. It wasn’t much, but the du Ponts managed to get along on it. Now let’s look at their average yearly profit during the war years, 1914 to 1918. Fifty-eight million dollars a year profit we find! Nearly ten times that of normal times, and the profits of normal times were pretty good. An increase in profits of more than 950 per cent.

Take one of little steel companies that patriotically shunted aside the making of rails and girders and bridges to manufacture war materials. Well, their 1910-1914 yearly earnings averaged $6,000,000. Then came the war. And, like loyal citizens, Bethlehem Steel promptly turned to munitions making. Did their profits jump – or did they let Uncle Sam in for a bargain? Well, their 1914-1918 average was $49,000,000 a year!

WHO PAYS THE BILLS?

Who provides the profits – these nice little profits of 20, 100, 300, 1,500 and 1,800 per cent? We all pay them – in taxation. We paid the bankers their profits when we bought Liberty Bonds at $100.00 and sold them back at $84 or $86 to the bankers. These bankers collected $100 plus. It was a simple manipulation. The bankers control the security marts. It was easy for them to depress the price of these bonds. Then all of us – the people – got frightened and sold the bonds at $84 or $86. The bankers bought them. Then these same bankers stimulated a boom and government bonds went to par – and above. Then the bankers collected their profits.

But the soldier pays the biggest part of the bill. But don’t forget – the soldier paid part of the dollars and cents bill too.

HOW TO SMASH THIS RACKET!

WELL, it’s a racket, all right. A few profit – and the many pay. But there is a way to stop it. You can’t end it by disarmament conferences. You can’t eliminate it by peace parley at Geneva. Well-meaning but impractical groups can’t wipe it out by resolutions. It can be smashed effectively only by taking the profit out of war.

Three steps must be taken to smash the war racket.

  • We must take the profit out of war.
  • We must permit the youth of the land who would bear arms to decide whether or not there should be war.
  • We must limit our military forces to home defense purposes.

An eye for an eye only makes the whole world blind.  – Mahatma Gandhi
