gmo risks

Not long ago, the world watched at genetic engineering technologies with hope – the hope to avoid famine for the growing population of the Earth.

Like with almost all main discussion topics people are fed with crap that suites one side or the other without even touching the surface of the real game that’s going on.

south stream gas pipelineBe careful of what you are wishing for because it might come true. Europeans will learn it the hard way.
The top economic and geopolitical story of the last week is the cancellation of the South Stream gas pipeline project that had to directly connect Southeastern and Central Europe with Russia through the Black sea.
Apparently the project was closed by the Russian side after years of negotiations and preparation because they couldn’t come to an agreement with all of the participants from the European side. Instead Russia will build a gas pipeline to Turkey, signed and announced.

Socialists Against Socialism

| May 5, 2014 | 0 Comments

president hollandeSocialism is a political movement that aims at establishing a system of public ownership of the means of production. The idea is to organize industry and services that directly satisfy social and economic needs instead of serving for accumulation of capital for its own sake. Nowadays socialists have little to do with these initial concepts.

In fact, they hypocritically keep repeating pleasant-sounding words about redistribution of wealth without having an idea how to build an economic model that will ensure both social stability and high productivity. Although modern technology is making this possible, socialists’ behavior shows that they are merely liberals dressed in red.

Is Germany occupied?

We tried hard to find a photo of Frau Merkel smiling

Germany won recognition as the most powerful economy in the European Union. Chancellor Merkel managed to turn the EU into a German project and managed to do what generations of German politicians did not – get Europe under control. What is more, all this happened without firing a single shot in Europe. Nevertheless, there is a risk for Germany to lose its political supremacy if the EU collapses and this makes the most powerful country in Europe a hostage of world banking elite.

Some of the top fashion brands

Modern-day economists are not prone to admitting an ugly truth – that profits too much depend on fools. In short – make the fools buy something that is in! The 30 years of neoliberal flourishing until 2008 was merely determined by the flourishing of brands. The combination of cheap Asian labor and consumers’ snobbery was a perfect money-making recipe.
