Named the Uppatasanti or Peace Pagoda in Than Shwe’s jungle capital Naypyidaw, it predictably began to unveil its curse of death as 20 people were killed during this festive day of consecration on a Ferris wheel. Apparently the Ferris wheel collapsed marking a grizzly death to its innocent victims according to a report in *Irrawaddy. It was a sad but befitting day to mark the beginning of the end of Than Shwe’s criminal regime. Using religion as a tool for controlling the people or influencing material gain has its dire consequences and Than Shwe’s regime is not above the retribution he is soon to face. This reality will also be shared by mankind as the world faces a total financial meltdown and the wars needed to bail out the world economies.
The **European Union has chosen to side with the criminal regime as well as industries within the free world and they will soon face similar consequences. Material lusting at the expense of humanity was all too apparent in US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s speech when she was in Asia last week. She sided with economics over humanity and chose to ignore China’s blatant disregard for human life and their bustling slave labor industry. Almost on queue from Hillary, China began its iron fisted attack on the Tibetan people. China also unveiled its ***“Two Oceans Policy” where they plan to rule the high seas as they accelerate their military spending. To show their dominance and control over the US they confronted our Navy this week as well. And all the while, the US and the free world are denuded of its core industries and moved to China. We buy Chinese goods at the expense of our own people through Hillary Clinton and China’s outlet center, Wal-Mart financing their military expansion. How far beyond stupid are we?
Soon sovereignty and democracy will be on the chopping block as a “global solution” for this economic disaster comes into view. We will be a one world order as financial concerns take precedents over all humanity and national boundaries. Our reward for looking the other way in the criminal regime of Burma and its on going holocaust will be to loose our own civil liberties. The fact humanity chose to overlook the holocaust in Africa and South America as well as Burma will soon offer the same fate or curse that faces Than Shwe and his murderous criminal regime. Two wrongs never make a right and mankind will face catastrophe in epic proportions that money will have no power to stop.
As the people notice the rise of corporate greed in the world the threat of Communism comes into focus. The fact China is deeply involved in this world wide dash for cash proves this is not the case. China does not follow the tenets of Mao Zedong’s Little Red Book and has chosen to ignore the Cultural Revolution in quest of financial gain. China’s Great Leap Forward was in all actuality the Great Leap Backward as the Chinese Communist Party became the mirror image of the despised Qing Dynasty. China as well as the rest of the world has become infected with a familiar cancer called Fascism not communism. Unlike Hitler’s version this rendition has evolved to the point were national concerns have been replaced with the concerns of international corporations. Benito Mussolini most eloquently stated; “Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power”.
Though the term corporatism is not widely used for obvious reasons the term “Globalization” has fore they are two in the same. Likened to the former Soviet Union, economic trade compacts around the world are swallowing up nations solely for economical consequences. The public as a whole are no longer citizens of their respective nations but “consumers” and targeted for profits, their land and natural resources. And this came to pass with the blessings of the World Trade Organization, the Schutz Staffle of International Corporatism.
In Orwellian terms the public lives in an era of double speak and bold faced lies as they continually make excuses for criminality. While ignoring the obvious they are loosing civil liberties, rights and their dignity as they ignore the greatest hostile corporate takeover in history. Like Burma’s Than Shwe and his Pagoda of Peace, mankind will choose the Pagoda of Globalization to mark a new beginning and financial security, at the expense of democracy and humanity. Likened to Than Shwe, the actuality of this venture will mark the beginning of the end. And the crimes against humanity perpetrated by Burma, China, Darfur and others will no longer be able to be ignored fore humanity will be in the clutches of tyranny as well. Only then will they realize the error of their ambivalence to the plight of others, but it will be too late.
As world leaders mask the true nature of international corporatism by using religious and ethnic differences to keep the world divided. They do not realize they are a part of destiny within the very texts they misquote and butcher to justify their monetary agenda. Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, The Dali Lama and innumerable other political and religious icons have purported peaceful means to accomplish the goals of humanity and it will come to pass. The texts from all religions of the world are very clear about the time of change; the Earth will have a separate agenda to man’s material goals. The law of physics, “To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” is a binding piece of legislation that governs the course of human history. Though it will get the darkest before the dawn just remember, the meek shall inherit the Earth and the Pagodas of tyranny will crumble into dust.
