I feel that people may feel that I am America bashing but this is not the case. I really love America and it's people (legal and quasi-legal) but I also feel that they do not know just what goes on in their own country and how it relates to the rest of the world. This sort of thing would never happen in any developed nation in the world except here. Considering that America and Americans seem to constantly bleat on about how they are the freest people in the world, some education may help. The first lesson is that just saying something does not make it true. Often we find that the opposite is so,for example although only 5% of the world population they hold 25% of the worlds prisoners. How can this be the freest country in the world? Apart from that what about the railroading of the defendants that this video details. The hypocrisy is mind-boggling and really sad as this is something that destroys lives and one of the worst things is that it is used to generate private profits for shareholders. This makes it much harder to reform and is such a twisted form of capitalism that it is sickening.Only the state should be holding people in cages,doing it for profit, by corporations is so evil and twisted I can't express enough about how abhorrent this is to me and should be to any person who values human rights and the humane treatment of someones brother,father,mother,sister or daughter not just a statistic on a stock price.
This is one of the channels that I watch from America and it is yet another example of (in)justice in action. The last time I lived there I always thought that being white gave me virtual immunity and it was true. I was pulled over several times and let away with things that if I was black for sure I would of been slammed and jailed.
It never ceases to amaze me the straight out stupidity of the Republican party. I believe that only half is the blatant financial corruption that runs thick through their midst and the other half is straight out stupidity. They truly believe half of the rubbish that they spout. One of their strong points is messaging and this is where they scare me and should worry other New Zealanders, This is the aid that the govt here gets from them. As their policies are largely disproved and they have nothing new to offer the voting public they have developed exceptional marketing of their otherwise unelectable policies. National has basically repackaged trickle down too sound like a great idea and sound economic policy although the only effect is further concentration of the nations wealth in the hands of a few well connected people and their family and friends. The nepotism in this current govt is surely at an all time high possibly a new record of corruption?
I have a bit of an interest in all things nuclear, and this means that one of the websites that I read regularly is called ENE news. This is a mainly nuclear energy news site that reports different headlines and speeches etc that relate to the nuclear industry round the world. They do not offer their own opinion but merely reprint articles that have been published in other places. They also offer a great bounty of links to back up what they are reporting on. I could put forward hundreds of the links that they have published over the years and that would be great but it would turn this into an anti-nuclear blog which it is not. Here is a link to their website to an article that is well worth looking at. http://enenews.com/bbc-police-grabbed-people-movie-theatre-made-reactor-deal-burning-fuel-rods-tv-men-picked-streets-forced-battle-nuclear-meltdown-video
The links on this page offer some insight into how the nuclear industry operates around the world. The comments by the ex-minister from Britain are interesting in how deceptive the industry is right up to the top level of govt. The other side of this is the overwhelming power of the military – industrial complex. The reactors in Britain were promoted as part of a program called “Atoms for Peace” where reactors were only used to benefit humanity by generating power and not being used for destructive purposes. The ex-minister in his video interview states that they were actually just plutonium production facilities for the U.S. Military machine, which he did not know at the time as it was part of the massive disinformation campaign that the industry is constantly running.
Another great video is the film/documentary ‘nuclear Ginza’ which is an amazing film about the industry in Japan. Well worth the watch, I will let you check out the links that are in this page at ENE and also recommend the site in general if you have any interest in your long term health and need to know when to stop eating food from the north pacific region(years ago by my reckoning ),or just an interest like me in nuclear and how it may affect you. I will post the film Nuclear Ginza below for those who are interested in this alone.
