See the Full Story: Royal Pencil in Print: Lorde’s suppressed Grammy speech
makes front-page news in far-flung New Zealand at
Thankyou soo much everyone for making this song explode because this world is
mental. (Laughter). Planet Earth is run by psychopaths that hide behind slick
marketing, ‘freedom’ propaganda and ‘economic growth’ rhetoric, while
they construct a global system of corporatized totalitarianism.
As American journalist Chris Hedges has identified, a corporate totalitarian
core thrives inside a fictitious democratic shell. This core yields an
‘inverted’ totalitarian state that few recognize because it does not look
like the Orwellian world of Nineteen Eighty-four.
This corporate totalitarian core is spreading outward from America. Planet Earth
is being rapidly militarized by the world’s major and significant states,
including their police forces. Meanwhile, state surveillance is becoming
universal and torture is outsourced to gulags.
Can we not imagine that in past times, simple folk found it hard to work out
exactly how they were being manipulated by the Royal monarchies, and the Papal
monarchy, who claimed a ‘divine right to rule’? Ordinary people from
classical times through to the demise of the Ancien Regime could not see how the
rivalrous network of elites and oligarchs were linked, not least because the
illiterate masses were indoctrinated to believe in their humble lot, to obey
divinely-endorsed authority and to live in fear of damnation.
So, in today’s mental world, it should become clearer now that Planet Earth is
ruled by super-wealthy people, who use their outrageous fortunes to steer the
trajectories of whole societies for their own material and political gain.
These oligarchs are, in fact, colluding for economic gain and conspiring to
augment more political power. Armies of professional, political, religious
and military elites serve them.[9 Together, they comprise a highly-networked
transnational capitalist class that has been traced in studies by: Peter
Phillips and Brady Osborne; William K. Carroll; David Rothkopf;
Daniel Estulin; and Laurence H. Shoup and William Minter.
As Canadian journalist Naomi Klein has argued in her book, The Shock Doctrine:
The Rise of Disaster Capitalism, ‘free markets’ were slickly marketed in the
1980s and 1990s with the idea that they would deliver individual freedom and
prosperity for all. Klein also wrote that the use of military violence to
facilitate the spread of ‘free markets’ in the field-testing stage from the
mid-1960s to the mid-1970s has continued into the 2000s. Her view is supported
in Eugene Jarecki’s documentary Why We Fight, which compellingly showed that
America fights wars to make the world secure for its corporations. So, get
reading and viewing! (Lorde giggles and half the audience rises to their feet
applauding. The other half remain fixed in their chairs. Some reluctantly
Thankyou soo much everyone for giving a shit about our song, ‘Royals’. May
you all find the balls to help construct a world based on resilient community,
bona-fide freedom, and peace. To do that, we will need to redeploy the
psychopaths that currently run the world to the planet’s prisons. Peace
cannot happen with reconciliation. That was Nelson Mandela’s mistake. The
first step to peace is justice firmly served.

Such an insightful dissertation from such a lovely young lady,. Perhaps there's
hope from this generation afterall
It also speaks volumes about anyone who would choose to censor such a speech.
Censorship does more to stymie the progression of humanity as a whole than any
other singe action imaginable

It does not matter if we overthrow everyone in power in the world, whoever
takes power after the overthrow will themselves become corrupt with power and
nothing will change. The haves will always rule the havenots. Nothing works,
not democracy, not communism, not socialism, so what kind of governing will
work? There has to be some kind of government because anarchy can't work
either. If we have no laws and no enforcement then if your neighbor has food
you will take it from him. Cry and complain about the government all you want
but until someone can figure out something to replace it with then that's all we
can do about it is cry and complain.

jgoin, welcome to the world of evolution.... yes, we're just a bunch of
"Analyze any human emotion, no matter how far it may be removed from the
sphere of sex, and you are sure to discover somewhere the primal impulse, to
which life owes its perpetuation.... The primitive stages can always be
re-established; the primitive mind is, in the fullest meaning of the word,
imperishable. ... Mans most disagreeable habits and idiosyncrasies, his deceit,
his cowardice, his lack of reverence, are engendered by his incomplete
adjustment to a complicated civilization. It is the result of the conflict
between our instincts and our culture."

With a population of over 7 billion and a historical timeline of over 5
thousand years it looks pretty successful to me so far.

War is the best population control, we need a really good ground war.
