The BIG LIE of the Free Market:
Is the American dream to disinform people at home and abroad?

"I know, but I won't tell you"

cliche used by Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld




Sometime ago I wrote about the white lies of the corporatist society which has blown out to become the criminal charges of the elitist leaders. At that time, I referred to the Scandal of the Century, a scandal in which dozens of people were wrongly charged of committing sexual assaults against children with the results of destroying their lives. What is worse, these people wrongly charged have tried to seek remedies against their wrongful prosecution for many years, yet these same people have not found justice and they are now suing the police and departments of the Saskatchewan Government.


It was only two days ago that I wrote of the possibility of state sanctioned terrorism in Israel. We, as individuals and people, have lost our freedom, yet governments claim to work on our behalf. I labeled the economic pandemonium of the Free Market peddled by the Chicago School of Economics as the BIG LIE, yet we have Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld hailing the economic miracles of the Chicago school as he advertised the $25 million reward for the apprehension of Osama Bin Laden. We can't continue to tolerate a U.S. foreign policy in Afghanistan where the CIA rewards the families of wrongly killed civilians with $1,000, and where the CIA recruits local fighters for the price of $50 so that they may kill other local fighters.


We live in a hypocritical world and therefore we must have the civil responsibility to understand this world and work for democratic changes. President Bush met with president Jiang Zemin, and mentioned the need to curtail the sale of Chinese arms and missile technology to foreign countries. However, we must understand that some 90% of all military conflicts in the world include the use of American weapons. President Bush mentioned to president Jiang Zemin the need for China to be more tolerant with freedom of religion, and Jiang Zemin reminded Bush of the Golden Rule "Do not do unto others what you would not like done to you."


We have a secretive Bush Administration which has kept journalists away from American troops in Afghanistan. We have a propaganda media as 90%of the American mass media is controlled by six companies. The International Press Institute (IPI) has accused the United States of undermining the freedom of the press, and now we hear of another axis of evil where the Rendon Group joins the Pentagon's Office of Strategic Influence for the purpose to disinform public opinion abroad and promote the American war against terrorism.




What is happening in America? Is the American dream to disinform people at home and abroad?
