Technogical innovation isn't something you learn from school. Innovation comes from a culture which rewards people for original concepts. Sadly most schools punish innovative thinking.

The biggest problems the East faces is the extreme conformity that their culture enforces.

Pure capitalism, socialism, communism, and all free market schemes in general are all unrealistic ideals that never succeed. Market economics are not so ideal.

A properly functioning market is no more natural than civilization.

I'm not convinced the whole exploitation of the masses step is a necessary component. It has yet to work out in most of the third world.

The S Korea model should be the way to go, and that means keeping corporations in check.

You know I find that the only thing in the universe that doesn't work out is our unnatural civilization. Nature always seems to find a healthy balance, survived and thrived for billions of years without mankind's input. Everything in nature simply works, moreover nature has created flight, computers(brain) and nuclear fusion(stars) before we were even close to a species.

Not to sound like a jerk towards the human race, we've accomplished some amazing things, but we put whales in captivity and they refuse to mate and become depressed. We put apes in captivity and they go bonkers and rip peoples faces off. We put elephants in captivity and they rampage. We put humans in captivity and... Well we're depressed, irritable and often violent. Hmmm...

As far as school is concerned, I completely concur. School stifles creativity and development, how is one supposed to learn how to think up new ideas when they are punished for drawing outside of the lines? How can one come up with new ideas if they are punished every time they think of something that hasn't already been thought of?

You make some valid points about civilization. Many of America's early pioneers came here to escape civilization, but don't forget nature is very dangerous. In nature there are no property rights, and killing, raping, and pillaging are standard practices.

Free markets are not natural either, which is why they don't exist.

True, but I feel that a more natural way of life could be far more satisfying if we were to use our intelligence capacity to understand that there is more to be had with friends than without friends. That is, should we be absolutely free and understand that we need each other in order to succeed and survive then there would be the understanding that there is no logic behind murder and rape. I believe that things such as murder and rape are products of the disbelief in equality. When one feels jealous or outcast they may become angered or begin to lose confidence in themselves, it is in this anger that they murder and in this lack of confidence that they rape. Merely my opinion of course.

It does seem as though this is getting a bit off-topic here and understand if this post needs to be removed.

I have finally come to the conclusion, after ten years in developing countries, that the corporations do MORE for the development of third world countries. Yes, more to modernize and develop than any of the aid agencies that have been here for what seems like forever.


All things are relative. If you take Tanzania as an example, there, a great deal has been invested in developing the industrial infrastructure, providing irrigation systems, communications and sanitation and therefore ensuring employment both for the present and the future. However, very, very little has been invested in health and education. The native population of Tanzania is currently beset by both HIV and Malaria, and without effective education and health programmes it will continue to be so. And furthermore, without education, the local populaton will not be meeting the needs of the modern society that is being created there. The technical expertise to develop Tanzania has been imported. Their children are educated in private schools, and treated in private hospitals. Obviously, there is a downflow of economic prosperity, but most of the native population of Tanzania are still reliant on assistance, it just means that that assistance is coming direct from corporations and not being channelled via aid agencies. An NGO that is funded by corporate funds, is still, to all intents and purposes, a hand out. In the meantime, the population continues to succumb to AIDS and Malaria leaving more room for none natives to move in and exploit Tanzania's natural resources, and given the lack of emphasis on health care, and more importantly, birth control, they also continue to reproduce and thereby provide an uneducated and needy workforce ripe for exploitation.

It is not the place of an aid agency to 'develop', it is the role of aid agencies to respond to crisis. While I can see what you may be implying, the corporations while seeming to improve conditions, are not doing so across the board, they are merely applying a veneer that make the prospect of redeployment for their western personnel and their families more attractive and hospitable. Those at the bottom, remain there, but they are simply less obvious, and usually, in the case of places such as Nigeria and the Congo, hidden away in enclaves.

I was an idealist like you, now I am a realist. Yes, some of the conditions are bad for workers, but you have to understand that their life before the factory was much worse. People want work, not handouts.


I think that you have that arse backwards. You seem to be the idealist here, or at least, you seem to believe the glossy brochure. Yes people want work, not handouts, but they also want a future that is sustainable. Another example, and one most suited to the argument that you have given. The Carpathian mountains are incredibly rich in minerals, currently the mining companies, using the very same argument that you are, are promising jobs to the local population if they allow them to buy their land and support their concessions. Given that there is gold in some of those thar hills, the benefits will be massive, and of course, the economy will boom. And boy do those people need a boom. But, look at the small print. The operations proposed have a life expectancy of 20 years...and all the technical expertise will be imported, not to mention the fact that the process by which the gold is to be extracted involves a highly environmentally toxic arsenic effulent that will likely decimate what is the most biodiverse area in Europe.... What happens after 20 years? Bust and most definately broken.

I don't lack realism, I can assure you.

There is a system that proposes to work with the principles of the scientific method to solve our problems, and that is a Resource Based Economy.Check it out if you haven't already...

One of the really nice aspects of ATS is the wide variety of view points one can expose themselves to and the general acceptability of those with differing viewpoints. I very much appreciate you sharing that information, however; I have already come up with my own ideas regarding socio-economics. If you're interested you can find it on my web-site:


In a circular society we would see little need for trade or things such as money. People could simply share with each other. For instance, a farmer might grow plenty of food and with modern technology he could easily grow far more than he and his family require. Anything extra could just go to whomever needs it. You might say that people are too greedy and would simply wipe out all of the farmer's food. If said people knew what was in their own best interests they'd know that if they did such a thing the farmer would soon starve and as a result they too would soon starve. They would know that if they left enough food for the farmer that he would continue to grow more and they too would continue to receive more. So too would they know that if they left enough food not only for the farmer, but also for others such as computer programmers then the programmers would have the time and life they need to make video games to entertain, or even programs that could help the farmer do his job better so there's even more food to go around. Today we don't teach things like this in school, in fact all school seems to teach is how to pretend like you're better or smarter than someone else. School does not teach how to share, only how to hoard. How to make money to obtain things for yourself and keep them locked up gathering dust so no other can use them.

There's actually quite a bit more too it than what's listed on that page, but I go into issues such as how this resolves crime and drug issues in a variety of other postings on my site.

Edit: In summary I would say that it's all about sharing with one another, in the same manner that many parents might prefer their children to share so too would the people of society simply share.

So the real bad guys behind the super powers are.......?


I lay the blame on the prince of this world and the “Elite” Cabbalists who actively worship him.


"We cannot understand the world until we appreciate that most leaders are traitors and that mankind is victim of a diabolical conspiracy on an unspeakable scale. It's time we stopped fighting each other and addressed the real enemy." ~ Henry Makow


The people behind the greatest Sting of all time (AKA Illuminati) are in control of most religions, material wealth and governments on the planet, and yes, they are real!


The Synagogue of Satan

One group and one group alone is responsible for virtually all wars and bloodshed on the face of this planet. This evil cabal is few in numbers but, like a deadly octopus, its tentacles reach out to grip and strangle untold multitudes of innocent victims. The initiates of every secret society and internationalist organization, from the Council on Foreign Relations and the Jesuits to the Bilderbergers and the Order of Skull & Bones, obey the dictates of this sinister group and tremble when standing before its leaders.

The cabalist group I refer to is the Synagogue of Satan, an ancient, yet modern, elite so politically powerful and so fabulously wealthy that even past history has been twisted, reshaped, and revised to meet its preferred version of humanity's gloomy, totalitarian future.

Religious in nature, the Synagogue of Satan is, at its essence, a grotesque, satanic cult. It's high council is composed of High Priests of Lucifer; these are men who literally worship death while practicing sexual magick and occult rituals of the blackest nature. LINK

The Illuminati goes clear back to the Garden...

From the book: Pawns Of The Game:


"The illuminati started long before 1776, It has it's roots in the mystery religions which the knights templar perpetuated. In Nimrod's time, Semiramus brought back the mystery religions which were from before the time of Noah. The Illuminati was just a different name by which these same entities exsisted. They can change their name a thousand times, but the same entities run it."

Note the illuminati in Jesus' day.

"The Old Testament is simply the history of how Satan became prince of the world, and caused our first parents to defect from God. It relates how the synagogue of Satan was established on this earth, it tells how it has worked since to prevent God’s Plan for the rule of the universe being established on this earth. Christ came to earth when the conspiracy reached the stage that, to use his own words, Satan controlled all those in high places.

He exposed the synagogue of Satan (Rev. 2:9; 3:9) he denounced those who belonged to it as sons of the devil (Lucifer), whom he castigated as the father of lies (John 8:44) and the prince of deceit (2 Cor. 11:14). He was specific in his statement that those who comprised the synagogue of Satan were those who called themselves Jews, but were not, and did lie (Rev. 2:9; 3:9). He identified the Money-Changers (Bankers) the Scribes, and the Pharisees as the Illuminati of his day.

Welcome to your home, planet Earth.

What does a baby first do once out of it's mother's womb? The baby resists... as human beings we naturally resist. Because that's what keeps us alive. That's living... resisting. And if you do not resist.... you remind me of the wildebeast in that youtube video getting eaten alive by the pack of lions, who are starving as well. So go out there and eat something or lay there in a pile of your blood while you are eaten alive. This is your life and this is how it's always been... a world full of greedy, bloodthirsty thieves who only want what other people have... pray that wildcard up your sleeve is worth a d@mn because your chances to play it are limited... and everyone's got one.

And, by the way, did I mention... welcome to your home? Planet Earth?

On the surface, yes they do appear to be in mortal competition with each other. Under the covers though, they are all owned by the same tiny handful of entities who own darn near everything. This study was a real-eye opener on that front and it didn't go as far down the rabbit hole as it could/should have. This was based on 2007 data about corporate ownership. To be sure, there's been a fair bit more consolidation of power and control since then. No sense letting a global financial crisis go to waste...

Makes you sick just thinking about it.

So the world is ran by bankers and insurance companies. Businesses that build nothing, create nothing, which are supposed to provide a service, but instead have manuvered themselves into a position where they now control the world

They are nothing but giant parasites that feed off of the economy, giving nothing back.

The market system doesn't work without competition. So what ever you want to call this, it is not a market economy, nor is it democracy, or a republic. Conservatives have conned people with the free market scheme into re-establishing a ruling elite.
