"Although bananas may only look like a fruit, they represent a wide variety of environmental, economic, social, and political problems. The banana trade symbolizes economic imperialism, injustices in the global trade market, and the globalization of the agricultural economy. Bananas are also number four on the list of staple crops in the world and one of the biggest profit makers in supermarkets, making them critical for economic and global food security. As one of the first tropical fruits to be exported, bananas were a cheap way to bring "the tropics" to North America and Europe. Bananas have become such a common, inexpensive grocery item that we often forget where they come from and how they got here."
— Rebecca Cohen, Global Issues for Breakfast: The Banana Industry and its Problems, The Science Creative Quarterly, Issue 3, September 07 - April 08 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
False Flag Hatred An American company called United Fruit Company or UFCO was a very powerful multinational corporation that wielded much political influence in the world. They had a monopoly on banana's(they dealt with other goods, but became famous for banana's) Their business practices gave rise to the term "Banana Republic." The United Fruit Company was the result of a merger in 1899 between Minor Cooper Keith, (who was a wealthy American businessman from New York, and also had railroad, and shipping enterprises) and Andrew Preston, who created the Boston Fruit Company. Andrew Preston would become the president of United Fruit Company, and Keith would be the Vice President.
The United Fruit Company would take up business in third world countries in Central/South America, the Carribean, and all over the world because of those countries lack of worker rights, safety, ability to use chemicals without regulation, and overall ease of exploiting not only the land for profit, but the people.The United Fruit Company was more powerful then the governments of the countries they grew banana's in, as they owned the government. Very little taxes were paid to these host countries they preyed upon, infact the amount of taxes they paid was so little, all responsible could have been thrown in jail just for that(all mistreatment of human life aside). The only tax they really paid, was to the politicians as to allow their treacherous activities to continue, van-guarded by money. Long hours, horrible wages, lack of safety or concern for the workers meant it was only a matter of time before the workers would have had enough and went on strike.
Workers could not escape these horrible working conditions as UFCO controlled the distribution of banana lands. UFCO used propaganda to propose that the risk of natural disasters was a reason they should own an abundance of banana growing land, preventing any farmers from growing their own banana's, thus preventing small farmers from creating their own company and breaking free from this Oligarch. ....this is not capitalism....it is capitalism with a virus invading it's very cell. This is something most Leftists, Collectivist's, Socialists, Communist don't seem to understand, that all political systems, ideologies can be invaded by tyrannical interests, whether public or private, and the virus is what needs to be eliminated...Not the capitalism.Whenever the the workers revolted, their demands were met with a bloodied iron fist, of false flag justice. On December 6, 1928 in Cienaga, Colombia an event which became known as "The Banana Massacre" occurred. The exact number is not known, but realistically over a thousand people were shot to death with machine guns by the Colombian government's army. The United States Marine's had informed the Colombian government, if they did not protect United Fruits interests by taking down the workers strike , the United States Marines would be sent in. So the Colombian Army opted to go and take care of it themselves, and slaughters their own people with machine guns. A private corporation had so much power, they were able to send the the United States Marines into Columbia to protect their financially interests
Capitalism is not the problem here, capitalism gets blamed when these activities go on. When a corporation does what UFCO did, they are engaging in Neocolonialism with a facade it is simply capitalism. They pay big money to keep this facade going, as whenever there were concerns over United Fruits treatment of the people of the country they grew banana's in, propaganda was unleashed to the buyers of the product (some by Edward Bernays, referred to as the godfather of public relations) Grocery stores also had a hand in all this by demanding United Fruit charge less for their banana's, because they could easily use violence to bring the price down. Not only did United Fruit pay for the propaganda to be written by the likes of Edward Bernays, but they needed to have pictures of perverted truths to back up these hollow claims that they were not killing, stealing, exploiting human beings. UFCO would send a trivial quantity of vaccines into the countries they were exploiting, which is not enough to extirpate the problems UFCO claimed it was fixing. Or they may build a school, while making sure there is someone around to see the building process of the school, so there will be a perverted corroboration that everything in these countries is all right, when they very evidently were not. All you have to do to see this sort of abuse, is to refuse the propaganda. It is kinda of like a father who beats his children...The neighborhood might not want to believe it, due to the father being a man who provides a good or service for the neighborhood(all the while the neighborhood neglects how he attained the capital to start the business, or the methods he uses to dominate the market) After the child has a busted face with shiny black eye...The father then buys the kid a shiny new bicycle to match the black eye, as this gives people in denial the ability to...deny. People do not want to believe in evil because it is uncomfortable and makes your life seem less important. Things that were once fun...become less fun. You start thinking about someone elses suffering and see not only how helpless the people suffering are...but how helpless you are in helping them. Well you are not helpless...you can wake people up, as these evil corporations, dictators, bankster terrorist, lobbyist thugs, are not just comprised of one person, but many. So why would you expect you, a lone ranger to take down an army of evil? You need an army of your own, and waking people up is the first step. Not running into companies like UFCO with your guns blazing, ready to go, so to speak. It takes time, it takes planning, it takes being awake to what is going on so you can fight their lies with truth. People dont want to believe how absolutely vicious these entities can be, because as a sane, decent human being, most people can not understand the complexities of evil and how far evil can go. Remember this....Evil Does Not Have To Make Sense...that is why it is evil and not good. Evil doesn't make sense.
WAR IS A RACKET
Smedley Butler -- Major General in the U.S. Marine Corps From Wikipedia- By the end of his career, he had received 16 medals, five for heroism. He is one of 19 men to twice receive the Medal of Honor, one of three to be awarded both the Marine Corps Brevet Medal and the Medal of Honor, and the only marine to be awarded the Brevet Medal and two Medals of Honor, all for separate actions
----------------------- False flag attacks Sometimes it is not so easy to exploit a country for its resources, so their needs to be an event taking place, before the exploitation can begin. The event can be anything from a bomb in a building, a shooting, or any kind of threat that will send a desired population into fear, hence taking away that populations critical thinking skills, as well as breeding hatred for whatever people are said by it's government to be behind the event.
so... scary event leads to Loss of critical thinking, and an aggressive hatred for the people accused by the government of carrying out the attack/threat. This has divide and conquer written all over it, as instead of talking about the 'event' that happend, the citizens are more concerned with demonizing whoever is said to be responsible for the event, while some of the citizens feel compelled to defend the demonized. Another part of the population just doesn't care or know what to think.
This is not some new thing, it has been happening for thousands of years.
Nero wanted to build palaces in a location he would call "Neropolis" In Rome, on July 19, 64 AD, their was a great fire that burned down what existed in that area. 14 Roman districts were burned down, to the joy of Nero. Prior to the fire, Nero asked the senate if he could tear down the buildings that were in his way of of creating "Neropolis." The Senate said no, Nero just burned all the buildings down anyways. Nero did help put the fires out, he set up aid for the homeless, handed out food...These are not good deeds, and does not prove the area of land Nero wanted for his new barrage of palaces he would call "Neropolis", was not burned down by him. It was. He then blamed the fires on Christians.
When you false flag attack, sometimes buying food for the homeless...aid for those affected from the attack, whatever it may be. This is simply an investment, to reach a greater goal. It also disguises your evil, because most people are naive enough to believe these good deeds, mean he had good intentions. He didn't, he was manipulating a populous by destroying something, then acting as the savior of the destruction he created.
February 27, 1933, Hitler burned down the Reichstag building and blamed it on the Communist party, had them thrown out of power, took over Germany, and instituted the Nazi party into the country. This was a false flag attack. We all know what would then follow.
August 2, 1964, "The Gulf of Tonkin Incident" The United States claimed the USS Maddox was struck by North Vietnamese torpedo boats. Two days later, the Navy reported this again happened. The August 4th attack was a flat out lie. This August 4th lie led to Vietnam.
In 1939 the Red Army shelled a Russian town called Mainila, near Finland. The Soviets would blame Finland for the attack, and then attack Finland, which led to the Winter War.
February 15, 1898, in Havana Harbour, the USS Maine sinks. The sinking was blamed on an external mine, which detonated under the ship. The belief sent America into an anti-spanish frenzy, and was in part responsible for the Spanish-American War. It was later concluded in 1976 by Naval explosive experts, the cause of the ships demise was caused internally.
The list of these type of ocurrences is neverending. Governments/Private Interest's have always, and will always engage in false flag's. It is very profitable for government/private interest to destroy a few of its own buildings, to get a whole lot of resource somewhere else. But it needs to made convincing, so it can be gotten away with it.
The first video is a video I made about false flag terrorism...The second video is of General Smedley Butler, I didn't make the second video.
Quite welcome. More of us are awake than even those who are awake, tend to realize. Society has taught us that misery is the acceptable standard and this is a lie that we are taught. For as long as we deem it as an acceptable standard, we will perpetuate the misery no matter how "awake" we are.
Because to be "awake" means to be able to recognize that you are still largely asleep and still have a lot of waking up left to do, and looking forward to the journey ahead. Those who are still completely asleep are those who follow trends and band wagons.
So it doesn't matter if the trend or band wagon is to say "oh those people are all just conspiracy nuts, everything is really just fine!" or if the trend or band wagon is to scream some lame battle cry against the Illumi-naughty. Both are still forms of being asleep.
One of the most ironic forms of being asleep while pretending to be awake that I have seen -- is that most of the Ron Paul'ers screaming "END THE FED!!!!" have no fucking clue WHY they are screaming it. Rebels without a clue. If you ASK them how money is made or what "fiat money" is -- they'll shrug and be like "i dunno, tell me -- how is it made and what is it?" lol
Just goes to show how many of "his own people" don't even listen when HE speaks about this stuff, much less when anyone else does. They just want to follow a trend and look cool. They want to feel self-important that they are standing out on the street, holding a sign and yelling about injustice -- being completely ignorant of the injustices themselves.
There are also so many Occupy People who do the same exact thing. But it is nice that the people who have taken leadership roles within the Occupy Movements usually tend to discourage group-think and frequently warn against it.
Fighting the system is what the system wants you to do, because when you fight it, you empower it. Anyone who has really done their homework on how the big scam works -- knows this too well. They know that the only way to defeat the system is by making the world into an environment within which the system can not survive. In which is suffocates and dies. So if you fight a shark inside of a shark tank, the shark is always going to win. But if you drain the water out of the tank completely, the shark is absolutely fucked.
Its time to drain the tank and suffocate the sharks.
Its just like I said in a Facebook Post today:
"Needless to say -- writing any congressman about anything won't do SHIT. Unless of course you're trying to tell the powers that be that they have you by the balls. That is what writing to your congressman will do.
You are telling the Wall Street bought and paid for congress, that Americans are too stupid to coordinate and get along enough even to boycott something, much less any other sovereign action. If you write to your congressman it should only be for one purpose only:
To tell them that they WILL be held LEGALLY ACCOUNTABLE for their actions and that the people WILL ENFORCE that accountability! This is the ONLY thing that ANYONE should ever tell a congressman or woman. Telling them anything else, is a waste of time and does Americans a disservice.
Theres an old saying: If pro means good and con means bad, is congress the opposite of progress? I think history answers this one clearly enough."
