Civil Warfare has been the corporate sponsored collateral damage to maintaining instability in regions or countries with desirable natural (and/or human) resources for decades. Take most former colonies, which received independence only to then have two or more factions financed to wage war against each other. Take Nigeria, take Liberia, take Kosova, take much of Middle and South America and Africa. The list goes on. Wikipedia doesn‘t always report without agenda, btw.
Today, major parts of the world are in unrest, and if you look closely, there is oil (entire middle east), there are pipelines across Afghanistan, Kurdistan and such (natural gas from Siberia to Europe). Go do your own research.
But if you think “we are safe”, guess again. Those states and regions in the US and Canada with exploitable resources are increasingly, and intentionally impoverished to allow for corruption and to destabilize the basis for the residents to have any self-determination. It is a domestic colonialism and it is engineered and enforced no differently than it has always been over the centuries.
Welcome to the Third World.
And, to make the picture complete, let’s add the human resource. When we look at the United Nations definition of human trafficking: The recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation and servitude.
And if we consider most of these terms, they will fit the average American wage slave. People are vulnerable; they are routinely deceived, subjected to coercion, abuse of power, and state-sanctioned corporate interestsä attempt to gain control over people for the purpose of exploitation and servitude.
What a “Land of the Free” we have become by not listening to the founding people and their warnings! People are traded on a different type of commodity market: “I will deliver you x-number of potential buyers for your product.” Or: “Here are fully tracked behavioral data for 20 million people.” The purpose, clearly a “we can make X percent of these people buy something they don’t need.” And then there is poverty, which creates another type of commodity, a hungry labor market. Remember, these are people being traded, people like you and me.
The traders control at least both sides of the trade: Create a product, and create a market.
This is not a conspiracy thing because it is all plainly out in the open. It is a grow up and be informed thing. It is a “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing”* thing. And it is therefore a be a responsible participant and pull your head out of the sand thing.
