If Monsanto, the most evil corporation in the world, were a person, his name would be Bill Gates. Yes, the Microsoft founder-turned-icon of Third World humanitarianism is an absolute crook, and an utterly vile one at that. Reports indicate that Gates’ many crimes against humanity in the form of illegal vaccine testing on innocent children are finally being addressed in a new lawsuit filed by the Indian government, which seeks to stop this demon of death from killing any more babies.
Back in 2009, the Gates Foundation quietly funded trials of Gardasil on some 16,000 tribal school children living in Andhra Pradesh, India. According to a report published in Economic Times India back in August, many of the children fell violently ill not long after receiving the vaccine, and at least five of them died.
In a separate trial of Cervarix that took place around this same time, also funded by the Gates Foundation, an estimated 14,000 tribal children in Vadodara, Gujarat, were vaccinated for HPV. The result of this trial was two children dead and possibly hundreds of others severely injured. In both trials, many of the consent forms used were obviously forged, and many of the children’s illiterate parents were coerced into signing consent forms with their thumbprints, not really know what they were doing.
A petition condemning these atrocious crimes against humanity notes that the Gates Foundation, as well as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Program for Appropriate Technology in Health (PATH), both of which supported the trials, were “criminally negligent” for testing deadly vaccines on “a vulnerable, uneducated and under-informed population [of] school administrators, students and their parents who were not provided informed consent or advised of potential adverse effects.”
It wasn’t until a non-governmental organization known as SAMA began investigating the two trials that these Nazi-like experiments on human beings were finally brought to light. But none of the controlled media in the U.S., or anywhere else in the West for that matter, agreed to cover it. The only country that took notice was India, which is now seeking justice against Gates and his band of vaccine terrorists.
Sadly, this isn’t the only time that Gates and his crew were found to have committed evil acts against the world’s most vulnerable. In December 2012, five children in the small town of Gouro, Chad, were forcibly vaccinated with a meningitis A vaccine that was still in trials and not even approved for commercial use. The children were told that if they didn’t agree to the vaccine, which was administered without parental consent, they would not be allowed to receive any further education.
And again in 2013, both the Gates Foundation and GAVI, the Vaccine Alliance, were exposed for forcing untested polio vaccines and 5-in-1 pentavalent vaccines on innocent children in Pakistan. Many of the children developed so-called “non-polio acute flaccid paralysis,” or NPAFP, which reports indicate is twice as deadly as polio itself.

“The hollowing of the middle has proceeded steadily for the past four decades,”a report by the Pew Research Center noted.
In early 2015, 120.8 million American adults ‒ or 50 percent ‒ were in middle-income households, compared with 121.3 million in lower- and upper-income households combined, the study found. That’s down from 61 percent in 1971.
The middle class, according to Pew, includes households “with an income that is 67 percent to 200 percent (two-thirds to double) of the overall median household income, after incomes have been adjusted for household size.”
The good news is that more households ‒ 21 percent ‒ are now part of the upper-income bracket, up from 14 percent in 1971, and that’s a bigger increase than those households that are now part of the lower-income bracket, which jumped from one-quarter of households in 1971 to 29 percent today.
The bad news is that household incomes fell overall from 2000 to 2014 because of the recession in 2001 and the Great Recession of 2007-09, with the greatest loss felt by lower-income households, which fell 9 percent during that time. The median for middle-income households fell 4 percent, while the median upper-income households fell 3 percent.
Breaking down the numbers into demographics, Americans who are of retirement age (65 and older) and African-Americans have made “notable progress” in moving up the income tiers, although they both remain overrepresented as lower-income households. Those without a college degree fared the worst, and thus “stand out as experiencing a substantial loss in economic status since 1971,” Pew noted. Young adults (ages 18 to 29) and Hispanics also took economic hits of 5.4 percent and 7.9 percent, respectively, over the decades.
Americans are now less likely to see themselves as what Ronald Wright deemed “temporarily embarrassed millionaires” and more likely to describe themselves as lower or working class, an April Gallup poll found. The survey discovered that 51 percent of Americans said they were middle class or upper-middle class ‒ down from more than 60 percent in 2008 ‒ while 48 percent said they were lower class or working class.
“Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.”
― Ronald Wright, A Short History of Progress
Middle-class jobs are not growing the same way that they are for those in the upper class, according to an August study by Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce. There are one million more jobs that rank in the top third of income-generating occupations, while there are 900,000 fewer jobs in the middle third, compared with pre-recession levels. Incomes in the upper class have grown 47 percent from 1971 to today, Pew found.
That gain in wealth and size for upper-income households has also led to middle-income households having a lower share of the US aggregate household income, which plunged from 62 percent in 1970 to 43 percent in 2014. In 1983, those in the top income tier held three times as much wealth as those in the middle tier. By 2013, the wealth gap had doubled, with the upper tier holding seven times as much wealth as middle-income households, according to Pew.
Those in the lower and middle classes are also finding their incomes aren’t stretching as far as they used to. Housing costs have risen ‒ 3.5 percent annually for renters ‒ with increased demand, as 9 million more people are leasing than a decade ago and homeownership is at the lowest level in half a century. Of the 43 million households who rent, one in five are considered “cost-burdened” ‒ spending more than 30 percent of their income on housing ‒ and more than a quarter are “severely cost-burdened” ‒ spending more than half their income on rent ‒ according to a report by the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies published on Wednesday.

PsyWar: the Real Battlefield is the Mind
Directed by Scott Noble (2010)
PsyWar is about the fundamental role of propaganda in a political system that pretends to guarantee “democracy” in a society that simultaneously promotes extreme wealth inequality.
It begins with an examination of the vital role propaganda plays in war time, with a special focus on the 2003 US invasion of Iraq and World War I. It then explores the morphing of the World War I propaganda machine into the modern public relations industry.
The film moves on to the concept of “polyarchy,” which the filmmakers maintain is the most accurate description of government in the industrial north. In a polyarchy, power is closely guarded by a wealthy elite and the population remains passive except for periodic elections in which they vote for the elites of their choice. When a tiny minority controls nearly all the wealth, “democratic” elections are only possible if the majority is systematically controlled with psychological propaganda.
Big breakthroughs in transportation and communication technology at the end of the 19th century caused a major crisis for polyarchy, as they fed the rise of popular resistance movements (eg the populist and progressive movement, International Workers of the World and militant labor movements). The response to this crisis was the public relations industry.
The Rendon Group and Perception Management
The documentary introduces us to the Rendon Group, the private “perception management” company the Bush administration paid to manage propaganda leading up to the US invasion of Iraq. Immediately after 911, the CIA paid the Rendon Group $23 million to generate anti-Iraq propaganda. They also paid them to manage “public perception” during the US bombing of Afghanistan.
The Dirty Secret Behind the US Constitution
PsyWar devotes nearly 15 minutes to the secret framing of the US Constitution by a group of rich landholders and merchants to overturn the Articles of Confederation and protect their wealth from the “tyranny of the majority.” It contrasts the system of direct democracy of the Iroquois Federation (on which the Articles of Confederation were based), where all members of society (including women) had direct input into policy decisions.
The Crisis of Capitalism
According to PsyWar the modern public relations machine performs two vital functions in maintaining the stability of our current capitalist system. The first addresses chronic overproduction. One of the main flaws of capitalism is that once a population’s basic needs are met, the need for continuing production ceases. Our ruling elite could have addressed overproduction by reducing work hours and increasing wages (as they have recently done in Sweden*), but this would have hurt profits. Instead, under the guidance of Edward Bernays (known as the father of public relations) they ramped up consumption by bombarding the masses with pro-consumption propaganda deliberately playing on their psychological insecurities.
The second major role played by modern public relations is to “manufacture consent” of the governed to their overall powerlessness and passivity. Manufacturing consent is a term coined by journalist (and former government intelligence/propaganda agent) Walter Lippmann. It was Lippman’s view that the majority of Americans are meddlesome outsiders who are totally incompetent to govern themselves.
