The worst losses among European billionaires were suffered by Amancio Ortega, Europe’s richest person, who hemorrhaged $6 billion. Many other mega rich individuals took a massive hit, including Bill Gates and Amazon magnate Jeff Bezos, who lost over $1 billion each.
Britain’s wealthiest person Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor dropped more than $1 billion. However, for the UK’s wealthiest Brexit was surprisingly less devastating than for others in the billionaire class. Altogether, Britain’s 15 richest people lost “only” $5.5 billion.
British co-founder of stockbroker Hargreaves Lansdown, Peter Hargreaves, lost the most, seeing his fortune shrink by 19 percent to US$2.9 billion.
In a major irony, Hargreaves was the largest donor to the Leave campaign, donating £3.2 million, according to the UK’s Electoral Commission.
Hargreaves has shown no regret, and says he is ready to work with the British government to shape the nation’s economic future once the country stops being an EU member state.
“Richard Branson, has been a vocal advocate of the UK staying with the EU, has made peace with the decision of the majority, stressing that the British people’s “determination, resolve and sense of what is right” would be necessary “over the testing months and years to come.”
On Friday, the people of Great Britain made their voice heard. They no longer want to be a part of the European Union and for good reason. For decades they have sat back and watched the global elite enrich themselves through special trade agreements ostensibly designed to bolster the economy, but in reality grant special treatment to those close to the top.
George Soros exposed the dependence of the elite on the EU when he took to fearmongering about rampant financial collapse upon Brexit.
“The Brexit crash will make all of you poorer — be warned,”Soros penned in an op-ed for the Guardian on June 20. “My 60 years of experience tells me the pound will plummet, along with your living standards. The only winners will be the speculators […]
“A vote to leave could see the week end with a Black Friday, and serious consequences for ordinary people.”
‘Ordinary people,’ however, were not that hard hit by Britain’s independence.
According to reports, Brexit-caused losses of the world’s 400 richest people amounted to an eye- watering $USD127.4 billion in a single day, Bloomberg estimates.
The Bloomberg Billionaires Index says billionaires lost 3.2 percent of their total net worth, now estimated at $3.9 trillion.
What these numbers show is the elite’s dependence upon the centralization of power for their existence. Without the ability to fix interest rates, manipulate currencies, and grant special trade privileges, the crony capitalist monopoly model crumbles.
If you want to know who’s most dependent upon the centralization of power, you need only look at who suffered the most from the Brexit.
Surprisingly, some of the mega rich advocated for Brexit knowing that this would be a blow to their net worth. Those individuals like British co-founder of stockbroker Hargreaves Lansdown, Peter Hargreaves, lost $2.9 billion, but were happy about it.
Hargreaves actually lobbied for Brexit and was prepared for the losses.
“I have enormous experience of business, enormous experience of negotiation, enormous experience of economics, and I’m one of Britain’s most successful businessmen,”Hargreaves said. “If they don’t involve me, they’re crazy.”
As Ron Paul said on Friday, the people have nothing to fear over countries leaving the EU — only the banking cartels do.
Indian doctors sue Bill Gates for harming children with Vaccines
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.
The Supreme Courts of India are currently conducting an extensive investigation into the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s devious actions abroad, which mainly involve testing deadly vaccines on poor, and oftentimes illiterate, children in developing nations without informed consent. According to Health Impact News, the case focuses specifically on illicit human experimentation that occurred with the two available vaccines for HPV, Cervarix (GlaxoSmithKline) and Gardasil (Merck & Co.).
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.
Bill Gates Foundation also responsible for killing kids with untested meningitis, polio and 5-in-1 pentavalent vaccines
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.
More on the Gates Foundation’s extensive legacy of killing children with vaccines is available here:
In this video Luke Rudkowski talks to Chip Englander, Campaign Manager for Rand Paul’s 2016 Presidential run. Luke asks the important question of a secret meeting that took place between Rand Paul and Bill Gates, which shifted Rand’s position to support and say GMO’s are safe. (more…)
Microsoft founder Bill Gates is the richest man in the world – and has a unique understanding of how global issues such as poverty, climate change or famines must be fought in the future.
In an interview with the “Süddeutsche Zeitung” Gates criticized that especially with regard to climate change, “a kind of global government” lacks. In other words, Gates wants a world government. (more…)
In the first part of this series, I detailed how there is enough food and water for everyone and how overpopulation is a myth propagated by eugenicists like Bill Gates. The critical issue that I cannot emphasize enough is that it is the upholding of this global system that is stopping this planet from being a paradise. If we stopped giving it power and instead worked with nature instead of against it, we would be left with the abundance our planet has gifted us with all along.
This system is largely controlled and maintained by a few select individuals that are purposefully making it this way. Only 85 people have the wealth of Earth’s 3.5 billion poorest and only 4 companies control the 147 companies that control everything. Several of these 85 ‘elite’ individuals are also embedded in this corporate power structure. Take into consideration these are Forbes articles, not a ‘conspiracy theory’. This understanding is topped off with the documented fact most wars are funded by international bankers that still have never been brought to justice. These people are still operating and see no reason to stop what they have always done.
So what can we do about this? This quote expresses the ethos perfectly…
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” – Richard Buckminster Fuller
We must create a series of systems based upon a new stream of consciousness; and some are already doing this.
Author, researcher, explorer, and scientist Michael Tellinger envisions a world without money, and since I can’t explain it as eloquently as Michael I won’t. I can tell that this system Michael has dubbed Contributionism is not barter or trade and it is extremely effective when implemented in small communities. Already 200 countries are beginning to implement Michael’s system to some scale or another. This system is so out of the current paradigm that many cannot grasp it due to how conditioned we are to perceive money as a necessity. Yet there is plenty of evidence showing Michael’s vision is reachable and not ‘utopian’. You can connect with a local Ubuntu party near you through here or even start your own.
An argument that is often used to discredit the idea of a contribution-based society is that humans are “naturally” greedy and competitive. This belief is still repeated to this day, however 400 peer reviewed studies have shown that humans are not innately competitive but are rather cooperative. The only reason we see competition and greed in our world today is that this global system encourages this atmosphere to breed incessantly through artificial scarcity and the pressure to survive. For example, the saying “earn a living” speaks for itself. This means that we are expected to “earn” our right to be alive. By accepting this fabricated concept, we keep ourselves stuck in this rat race to the point where many people have forgotten the power to think outside the box and have discernment.
If it weren’t for this system, we would harmoniously dance with each other into prosperity and abundance. That is no pipedream either – those studies have shown that cooperation is a primal behavior despite what many believe; or have been led to believe.
The Venus Project is an endeavor taken on and designed by Jacques Fresco to create a resource based society that would be atomized by advanced artificial intelligence. It would operate almost as a nervous system for many readily available advanced technologies, which would altogether interlock in a way that would end planetary suffering. This concept would not be ecologically harmful to the Earth and would free humans of the monetary system that has strictly limited our potential with the way it is being used.
A critical point to stress is that such technology does exist. Yet most is used militarily or isn’t because there isn’t enough “money” to fund it. Here are some examples:
1.) An atmospheric-water-generator that can collect water from the air – even in desert environments – yet it is currently only being used for military purposes.
3.) Various magnetic technologies that have shown the possible potential to supply limitless amounts of energy. The only thing coming in the way of most designs is harnessing the energy itself. The implications for free, limitless electricity are obvious.
5.) Thorium is a very abundant and clean power source that can be utilized right now to supply energy to cars or entire cities.
6.) Effective microorganisms can purify water safely and restore water systems globally as well as make water usage sustainable when compared with chemical “purification”.
7.) Water has the obvious potential to supply clean energy to any combustible engine without giving off any toxic by-product. Inventors like Stan Meyer, Daniel Green and so many others have established this as a feasible science that can be implemented at any time. The company Solar Hydrogen Trends Inc. has invented a hydrogen reactor and this is detailed in their press release.
It is also worth noting the United States Patent Office withholds over 5000 patents related to energy due to “national security”.
The resources are there, it’s simply a lack of money that comes in the way. They are even present in first world countries where some go without food because they do not have enough money to purchase it. One third of the food produced worldwide goes to waste because there is not enough money to purchase it. I know this struggle, it is extremely frustrating and can make or break you.
From an “educated” point of view this seems like a naïve observation, yet isn’t it time to ask ourselves if we can do better than this? Even democratic systems and representative republics have never fixed any of these basic issues; we must dig deeper in my opinion. We have to go to where we haven’t been before, and that’s a radical challenge; one we’ve never had.
One of the main issues with these systems isn’t the possibility of them not working; the problem is that humanity has been so programmed by this way of “life” that they sometimes cannot conceive another way to live. It is hard to envision another solution when the problem is all they’ve ever seen, and I understand this from personal experience. Astronomers are out looking for other planets that can support life while we rape this planet’s life into oblivion.
I see humanity as a race of beautiful master builders, so let’s come together in mutual growth as equals and build something greater. From my point of view, the risks of trying something new do not matter. It is in fact riskier to maintain a status quo that is destroying our planet, minds and spirit. We are at the cusp of a new evolution on so many levels of existence. It is something that we’ve never experienced before. Lets build something we’ve never had before.
This is my opinion. you may disagree and if it doesn’t resonate with you, feel free to walk away. That is your right and it isn’t any of my business to tell you otherwise. Thanks for reading. Alec Cope in collaboration with Elina St-Onge
