ARE WE SUPPORTING MURDER?
In a way we are since corporations as well as our government does not seem to care about yet another group of indigenous people, go figure eh. Every once in a while we hear news about the drama that is unfolding in Burma. The wholesale murder of Buddhist Monks and the civilian population at large does not phase the world it seems. Corporate America has embraced China since they see dollar signs with this growing nation. A growing nation burns oil and gas to the joy of stock holders. They also need our technology as well. Even internet providers are chomping at the bit to glean a handsome profit in China. Like I always say, “it’s all about the money”
I have a friend from Burma and by no means has the media at large even got close to the realities of the holocaust that is going on there. We sit by and inadvertently support the death and destruction that is happening to these people. China has taken a very negative position in the Burmese people’s plight indeed since they are supplying weapons to feed the war of ideologies there. Innocent men women and children are being murdered by the droves while the world sits by and counts their chips. The stock market and investors in China’s economy do not want to upset the ole ox cart and piss of the Chinese Government by suggesting they influence the Burmese government into stopping the “Killing Fields” mentality.
Our Corporate Fascist Industrialists are lining their pockets with blood money as well as investors while people are being butchered. Course the plight of Africans has been a non issue as well. South America has been under siege forever it seems and well, we need not forget the Iraq debacle. When will the citizens of the world stand up and say a frigging thing? Guess that is why we are poised to feel the wrath of a more dynamic nature when Ma Earth kicks some bootie and sends us back to the stone age. And personally, I can’t wait. This New World Odor thing really smells big time.
After listening to my friend talk of all the horrors she endured before she made tracks to New Zealand the on to the US, I was without words. Tears filled my eyes as she described of first hand accountings that mirrored the stories from my people as we faced Chivington and Custer. It was a flashback of sorts since my people still feel the horror of our history. Imagine walking to school and having to step over dismembered bodies of men, women and children every day. Then hoping these butchers do not come into your village to do the same. Out of absolute fear she did not want me to mention her village or her tribe since the government monitors the internet as well. And they would wreak death and torture if they knew who to make an example of.
As we spoke I could see the terror in her eyes as she told me volumes of the carnage she personally witnessed while in her homeland. She told me of children marching in their school uniforms in protest only to be machine gunned down in cold blood. If you follow the money you would find that eventually it ends up coming out of our pockets as we finance China through industry and America’s policy of buying friend’s world wide. I believe we as a people should hold accountable these corporations that are swapping spit with China.
They could do more than just turn a deaf ear on the hopeless cries from innocent Burmese people. Oh boy that will be the day eh. If it’s all about the money, then we should follow the money and make a statement that seems to be the only way we can be heard anyway. Hit these industrialists in their pocket book and boycott every industry who does business in China until they stand up and use their big bucks to influence China into stopping the killing.
Yea sure, like that is going to happen. Sadly humanity is destine to go into the sewer as material lusting takes the helm of this and other nations all for the bottom line. Indigenous people are under siege world wide as Corporate America sits by and counts their chips and gleefully waits till the smoke clears so they can set up shop. It’s all about the money Paisan, simple as that. Who cares about Burma anyway? It’s just some puny country with a few plantations that England once dominated. They were our allies during WWII who fought and died alone side American troops. Just a courageous people who looked to the US for help is all. But like other people who helped the US out in our time of need. We turn a deaf ear and worse we go a finish them off. It is shameful that these greasy corporations do nothing but line their pockets while innocent people die.
Ah, just another PTSD moment I guess, like spitting in the wind since nothing will happen anyway. Come on Earth Changes; please clean this filthy slate of this so called civilization. This has become a fetid existence where the bottom line overshadows human life. So I sit and burn my cedar and make prayers for all the indigenous people of the world. Maybe I’ll be able to hold back the tears when my Burmese friend vents her sorrow as she struggles with PTSD’s like the rest of the Indigenous population of the world.
It’s all about the money Paisan.
