Donald Sutherland Reveals The Real Meaning Of The Hunger Games
posted 11/27/2015, 9:04 AM (InformationLiberation)|
Donald Sutherland, the actor who plays President Coriolanus Snow, a totalitarian dictator in the hit movie The Hunger Games just explained in no uncertain terms what the movie is about.
"...If there’s any question as to what it’s an allegory for I will tell you. Having watched the films, there's no question. The thirteen districts allude to the thirteen colonies, now the United States, while the capital run by a tyrannical dictator represents the Federal government. The films are a stirring rebuke of totalitarianism and how governments control their citizens through fear.
It is the powers that be in the United States of America.
War is for profit. It’s not "to save the world for democracy" or "for king and country."
It’s for the profit of the top 10%, and the young people who see this film, must recognize that for the future "blind faith in their leaders," as Bruce Springsteen said, "will get you dead.”
Sutherland is dead wrong though when he says the "top %10" benefit from war, it's more like the top .1%, which is the few hundred corporations who actually get the war contracts and the few hundred politicians who get more power and get to pose as everyone's protectors. Nonetheless, the idea the US' wars were to "save the world for democracy" is certainly bullsh*t.

Government regulations have already ruined our dishwashers. The need to wash dishes twice or pre-wash is already an entrenched reality due to previous regulations which pushed washer makers to use only a paltry 6.5 gallons a wash, now the bureaucrats at the Department of Energy want washers to use only a pathetic 3.1 gallons, and the industry is freaking out.
From The Hill:
Companies that make dishwashers are warning that the Obama administration’s latest e... (more)

[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
An innocent woman in need frantically flags you down, begging you for a ride.
Despite not going through the Uber app, she tells you she's in a hurry, asks you to book the ride on your own phone and begs you to drive "across the street" to her friend.
When you comply, all the sudden you're surrounded by a gang of cops who accuse you of acting as a "bandit cab" driver -- someone who takes money under the table for rides, rather than funnel cash through Uber and in... (more)
The 'Recycling' Scam Falls Apart
posted 06/22/2015, 5:04 AM (InformationLiberation)|
Since it's inception, recycling has always been a scam. With the exception of aluminum, all recycled products require more energy to be "recycled" than to be made fresh. Nonetheless, governments and environmentalists have profited off such schemes as recycling plants serve as both a handout to politically connected corporations and a jobs scheme for opportunist politicians. The scam is finally now coming to an end as the economic reality is setting in.
