Worst of human nature (David Spence)

Put very bluntly … as long as money is the controlling factor of any society, then it will fail in every aspect of what would be regarded as “fair and just”.

This also includes the legal system, which is based on monetary greed rather than justice … but putting this aside.

Wealth, greed and selfishness (as a consequence of the monetary system) will always cause division, segregation and bring to the fore the worst in human nature (the Tories demonstrate this to a T).

As a consequence (more so now than at any other time in human history) of such a controlling principle, it has been clearly apparent that the pinnacle of a capitalist-based society is at the behest and control of the ultimate controller of commercial and financial conditions within society.

This system has been responsible for the greatest amount of devastation, war, conflict and the death of millions of people, and has been responsible for the greatest amount of poverty globally than any other aspect which makes up our society. It looks upon death and killing (the war machinery; arms industry – which it fully supports) as a means to make huge profits.

This institution has maintain, manipulated and instigated actions which have affected millions of people, but it has only ever acted in its own selfish, despicable way in which to further its dominance and control over everybody else.

What is this? It is the banks, and the social system to which it operates. Which is fully supported, condoned, approve and legitimised by the Conservative Party.

    How I agree with David Spence , let’s bring back sheep swapping and possibly the odd Gulag where non persons can be re educated. Lets leap forward into the past , it was so much better.

    You’ve hit the nail right on the head David. The main problem is is anybody really listening and even if they are how far are they prepared to go in order to rectify the wrongs?°

    War is business, where there is none the USA will find one, America must have war to function, in 1963 America was virtually bankrupt , JFK wasn’t, going into Vietnam weeks after his assassination where were they , yup in Vietnam, all of a sudden the USA was solvent ,years later they had to leave beaten by the Vietnam Cong. Pope John Paul the First on election decided to rid the papacy of corruption, led by Archbishop Paul Marcinkus , 33 days later he was dead , no autopsy which is illegal in Italy. Read In Gods Name by David Yallop or A thief in the night, you can get these books at Abe Books .com, very thought provoking. If you are a danger to the establishment you will be taken out.

      Spot on Henry

      As I’ve said [many times before] anyone taking on the banks, big business and threaten the arms trade, at any time throughout history [regardless of their position] miraculously either disappear, or are done away with.

    “it is “reasonably certain” that a drone strike in Syria has killed the Islamic State militant known as “Jihadi John”.” A multiple sadistic murderer is now out of the war. Unpleasant as bombing is, needle point strikes with laser guided munitions will eliminate mass rapists and the most brutal of murderers. I am sorry, , but I do not think sitting on our hands and doing nothing is an option. If prior to the “Twin Towers attack”, Bin Laden, had been taken out, we may have had a much safer world, sadly he was not and the history that followed was tragic. Just remember The Twin Towers was the first mass killing and preceded the western backed wars in Afghanistan, and Iraq.

      And whose fault would it have been had Kennedy allowed – after the failed Bay of Pigs Invasion – the CIA on “Six” [that we know of] different occasions, permission to annihilate a US town/city and its American citizens, simply as an excuse to blame Cuba in order to invade them?…. Oh! and let’s not forget that two of the CIAs targets were British colonies, here’s a couple of them Ian, and our “trustworthy” allies the US, you STILL honestly believe that Osama Bin Laden was the world’s No1 arch enemy?…..Really!!!

    Robin Stevenson, what has anti American sentiment and prejudice to do with anything here? It makes a change from the usual anti-Westminster anti-English mantra. Bin Laden was anti-anyone whom shared not his corrupted views. The majority he killed were fellow Muslims, he really was truly non discriminatory, just like Isis. All who do not follow their doctrine must be subjugated to sexual slavery for the young girls, butchery for the older ladies and all the men slaughtered, beheading being the prefered modus operandi. Just what exactly was the SNP policy here, appeasement, capitulation, blame Westminster or do absolutely nothing?

    William Blum, I know of only two people to endorse William Blum’s works. One is Robin Stevenson, the other is Osama Bin Laden!! Nice to know where you are coming from, Robin, what a credit you are to the SNP. ref (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Blum)

    Ian, do you honestly believe the staged story version the Bush Administration spewed out to the world about the events of 9/11?

    Funny how that the only buildings of a concrete, steel frame structure to collapse as a result of fire in the history of construction were WTB 1, WTB 2 and WTB 7 (even although WTB 7 was not hit by a plane, and yet collapsed at free fall speed (no resistance)). It was not only this, but the manner in which all these buildings collapsed at free fall speed. As one fireman said ‘ The largest piece of debris they could find was no larger than a mobile phone. Basically, the whole building literally crumbled into dust.

    As for the plane which, allegedly, hit the Pentagon. If you care to look at video and photographic evidence just after the event…………Where is the plane? Where is the wreckage of engines, seats, wings, tail etc etc…….none of this is in sight. Why is it that of the 238 CCT Camera’s within and around the Pentagon, not one captured the, alleged, plane hitting the building?

    We should always believe what our Governments say, shouldn’t we ?
