An upside down world led by the finest liars

Nipawin - Friday - August 22, 2003 - by: Mario deSantis

"The big companies are following a new business model: Pay Chinese wages, but charge U.S. prices."

Jim Schollaert, lobbyist with the American Manufacturing Trade Action Coalition in Washington


As usual I shake my head as I pay attention to the ongoing violence in the real world, and now I understand why I have been shaking my head for a very long time. I have been shaking my head because I could not reconcile the ongoing corruption of the so called real world, a real world on auto pilot where money is more important than lives. I never had any specific intention to understand the inner workings of the real world, but then I really became frustrated as in the 90's as I personally experienced the corrupt economic policies of the Saskatchewan government. It was consequential that in the Spring of 1999 I stated how these governmental policies were teaching "our children to become the copycats and backstabbers of North America." I was right more than I thought at that time as I now understand how the privileged world of copyrights and money is turning all of us into copycats and backstabbers of the Free Market.


  The main recursive principle of the Free Market is for businesses and governments to go deep into debt, have big loans, and eventually reduce services and costs in the name of the competitive and now more oligopolistic Free Market.




I remember when the Saskatchewan Health Information Network (SHIN) was hailed as an opportunity to consolidate medical records in the province and save money; instead, SHIN has been digging a hole in the ground since partnering with the sometime fraudulent American military contractor Scientific Applications International Corporation (SAIC). Today I find out that SAIC was providing intelligence services to Admiral John Poindexter, known for his participation in the Iran Contra scandal and for his plan to make terrorism a commodity of the Free Market.
  About two years ago I received a call from a SaskTel representative and I was asked if I would be interested in the future to shift my TV cable service from the present rural service cable provider to SaskTel. Today I find out that SaskTel is one of the biggest shareholders of this rural service cable provider, Persona Communications Inc.
  The United Sates is the most powerful and richest country in the world and there is an understanding that it has maintained an over evaluated dollar for many years. Today, as the Bush administration wages wars all over the world, there are American economists who want the appreciation of the Chinese "Renminbi Yuan" in light of the growing American trade deficit.



On May 1 of this year, as President George Bush landed on the deck of the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln he shouted

"my fellow Americans: Major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed. And now our coalition is engaged in securing and reconstructing that country."

Today we are witnessing the continuous destruction of lives and properties as the United Nations headquarters in Iraq has been destroyed and as water and oil pipelines continue to be sabotaged.

This world is really upside down and I agree with Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano when he says that our leaders are some of the finest liars.
