You Poor People Have No Rights Only Duties: A Letter

Dear Poor People:

Some stupid wage slaves are under the impression that they have certain rights, nothing can be further from the truth. You have no rights, you only have duties and responsibilities. The duty of a wage slave is to work hard for his master, to die at war for his master, to bleed in the trenches for his master. The duty of a wage slave is to put all thoughts of authentic freedom aside, in order to wholeheartedly serve my corporations.

The duty of a wage slave is to fall into debt so that this debt may be used to further entrap his weak psychology. You might think you’re free, you might think you have rights, but as my buddy Bloomberg put it so eloquently, ‘no right is guaranteed’.

The billionaires have the guaranteed right to be bailed out with your tax money, but you have no guaranteed rights. The billionaires have the guaranteed right to have their investments protected, but you have no guaranteed rights whatsoever. At any time I can take you and your whole family and…

Parliamentary Committee Vindicates Citizens Demand for Rejecting UID & NPR

*Press Release *

*Parliamentary Committee Rejects UID Project & Biometric based NPR*

*Vindicates Citizens Demand for reviewing UID and NPR *

New Delhi/ 22/12/2011: The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Finance
considering the National Identification Authority of India (NIDAI) Bill,
2010 presented its report to the Parliament on December 13, 2011. The
report rejects biometric data based identification of Indians. The report
is a severe indictment of the hasty and `directionless' project which has
been "conceptualised with no clarity of purpose". Even the functional basis
of the Unique Identification Authority of India UIDAI is unclear and yet
the project has been rolled out. The Standing Committee found the biometric
technology `uncertain' and 'untested'. As early as December 2009, the
Biometric Data Committee had found that the error rate using fingerprints
was inordinately high. In a recent interview to the press, the Director
General and M…

Kim Jong-un, the new leader of Workers' Party of Korea

Kim Jong-un of Workers' Party of Korea is the third and youngest son of deceased North Korean leader Kim Jong-il and his consort Ko Young-hee. He is Daejang (General) of the Korean People's Army. Kim Jong-un became the leader of the country after his father's death on December 17, 2011. On January 15, 2009 the South Korean news agency, Yonhap, reported that Kim Jong-il appointed Kim Jong-un to be his successor. He succeeded his father Kim Jong-il as the head of the Korean Workers' Party and de-facto leader of North Korea.

Indian government revived contacts with the North Korea in 2010. India participated in the sixth Pyongyang Autumn International Trade Fair in October 2010. Five months ago India gifted soya beans and wheat for impoverished North Koreans reeling from hunger and famine produced by an exceptionally bad harvest earlier this year. Kim Kye Gwan, a North Korean minister attended the reception at the Indian embassy in Pyongyang at the hosting for Republic Day…

Ex-Greek PM George Papandreou on Greece’s Fiscal Crisis and Why He Backs Occupy Movement

Democracy Now!, Dwc 09, 2011 INTERVIEW: (1) Exclusive: Ex-Greek PM George Papandreou on Greece’s Fiscal Crisis and Why He Backs Occupy MovementIn an exclusive interview, we speak with former Greek prime minister, George Papandreou, who is attending the U.N. climate change summit in Durban, South Africa. Papandreou was forced to resign last month when he suggested holding a national referendum to allow the Greek people to have a say in whether they would accept the European Union’s bailout plan which would necessitate severe austerity cuts. We speak to Papandreou about the financial crisis, the role of banks, and the importance of the growing Occupy Wall Street movement. "The Occupy Wall Street movements ... are saying something very, very specific, that inequality, in the end, is an inequality of power, and we need to redistribute power, not just money—power—and this is, I think, the democratic challenge that we have today," Papandreou says.
