So, we’re planning on sending a woman to the moon:
- Plans outlined today show UK, US and China plan to establish moon base
- Science minister David Willetts revealed aim to send a woman on mission
- China expects to have astronauts on lunar soil between 2025 and 2030 ”
“United States spends nearly $1 trillion annually on anti-poverty programs, which amounts to $20,610 for every person living in poverty or $61,830 for a family of three in poverty.Like with nearly every bit of domestic spending, the study found that “welfare spending increased significantly under President George W. Bush and has exploded under President Barack Obama” to the tune of a 41 percent increase.And yet, despite nearly $15 trillion spent fighting poverty since Lyndon Johnson declared war on poverty in 1964, the study found that “the poverty rate is perilously close to where we began more than 40 years ago.”“Clearly we are doing something wrong,” the authors of the study write. “Throwing money at the problem has neither reduced poverty nor made the poor self-sufficient.” Source:by TONY LEE
Interestingly, despite not having ended poverty and despite now half the world living in poverty – our priorities somehow include spending billions of dollars sending more people to the moon. Have we progressed? Have we evolved? Have we become more ‘aware’? Have we become more ‘compassionate’? Can we really say we care about ‘equality’ when we have made virtually no progress in the area of Economic Inequality, which is by far the most severe form of discrimination currently on Earth?
What could be more utterly irrelevant than a human being walking around on the fucking moon while there are people going without the basic elements of life on Earth? What the fuck is wrong with us? Why is this kind of behavior seen as normal?
Obviously the only reason we’d be doing this is because we’ve already given up on ourselves, already decided it’s too late for planet Earth, and we’re looking for a way out – in space. Because otherwise — why would a space program exist while millions starve to death every year? Just do the math. Of course the billions of people currently in poverty would not be included in that escape plan which makes space exploration actually a rather insidious thing doesn’t it?
And within this obviously this makes any efforts to ‘fight poverty’ simply meaningless because — if we really cared, we would’t have a fucking space program — we’d be dedicating our time and resources to supporting life on Earth.
All of this goes to show that what we are saying at Desteni is in fact obviously true — that human beings are preprogrammed to be slaves – to be obedient slaves with no common sense or self honesty whose only purpose is to accept the system and care only about self interest. I mean, otherwise we would have changed things, wouldn’t we?
When will we get our heads out of our Astronauts and sort out our priorities?
The Living Income Guaranteed will end poverty.
