“We know the predator.
We see them feed on us.
We are aware to starve the beast is our destiny.”
– John Trudell
They say “Money is the root of all evil” but that’s a half-truth because money is just a colored piece of paper with an enforced value, so it is not the money itself that is evil; the enforced value is the evil. “Pay to play” is the name of the game called survival in the realm of empire. The enforced value ranges from paramilitary and mercenary armies protecting the corporate loot, to electricity turned off and accounts closed if you don’t pay on time.
In the so-called land of opportunity aka life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (that last bit sounding like a mantra for the new age self-help industry), the goodies are an ever-dangling carrot.
The first official dangling carrot corporation was known as the Dutch East India Company.
“The East India Company was founded by a group of London businesses and chartered in 1600. Its original mission was to trade for spices… The company conquered and governed India, shipped slaves from East Africa and traded Indian opium for Chinese tea. And, of course, the East India Company encountered struggles in the tea market in America.”
