…”if you are into selling bombs you want to make sure people keep fighting and killing each other…
The ones who are in this kind of business are the ones who REALLY run the politicians and the governments!” Prem Rawat, 21st June 2017
“Say you are in the business of making and selling candy bars.
Wouldn’t you make publicity for them, making t’shirts with candy
bars on them, making sure as many people as possible would buy them?
Now, if instead of candy bars you manufactured bombs…..wouldn’t you want people to use them as much as possible? It’s not like bombs are multifunctional. They can’t be used for unplugging your toilet when it gets blocked for instance! You can’t use it either as a vase for your flowers when you are not fighting. The only thing you can use it for is destruction. Massive destruction.
So obviously , if you are into selling bombs you want to make sure people keep fighting and killing each other! We are talking about billions of dollars. Not millions, but BILLIONS!!
The ones who are in this kind of business are the ones who REALLY run the politicians and the governments!”
Prem Rawat in Belfast, Ireland, 21st of June 2017.
This is true, and so timely. Prem has a wonderful way with words.

Some aspects of Australian society are arse-about-face. For example, the conservatives call themselves the Liberal Party, but their is nothing ‘liberal’ about their philosophy. I call them the LIEberals. They pretend that ‘Trickle Down’ economics actually works. Prime minister Turnbull has a “plan” to trickle down “jobs and growth.”
The plan involves giving $50 billion of tax payers money to corporations and banks. Much of it will end up in the bank accounts of foreign investors. At best, it is forecast to deliver 1% growth and very few jobs. The $50 billion tax giveaway will have to be funded by cuts in government spending and sales of assets such as Medicare. Turnbull claims that Medicare will never be sold. He’s lying!
The July 2016 election is over and the LIEberal have been returned to government with a volatile senate and a lower house majority of only one. The senate will probably block many of the Lieberal’s most damaging initiatives.
Australia’s geographical isolation could be the nation’s greatest advantage. U.S. Doco film maker, Michael Moore, predicts that Donald Trump – “This wretched, ignorant, dangerous part-time clown and full-time sociopath is going to be our next (US) president.” Let’s hope that distance gives Australia some degree of protection.
