Peace of Mind BBC B’org-style

Bulb Films for BBC Wales produced a TV program called Peace of Mind about a few people in Wales who have/are suffering from various types of mental illness.  I looked up Bulb Films to see if it had anything to do with the Nescott Mental Awareness course I’m doing because they are similar.  I’m interested in mental illness because it’s a result of B’org food.  I didn’t find any connection to Nescott, but did find that Bulb Films is connected to a business plan for global growth, albeit on a local level, if you can grasp that meaning.
 
Bulb Films is a newly formed division within the Boomerang Plus Plc, a British TV producer.  It all leads back to the BBC, but I think the journey is interesting because it shows that the focus of TV broadcasting is actually global and a sign of the enfolding globalisation agenda.
 
 
In July 2012, Boomerang Plus Plc was taken over by its management for a price agreed by the firm’s independent directors.  These managers made the bid of around £7.1m through Boom Pictures Ltd. The managers include CEO Huw Eurig Davies, finance director Mark Fenwick and executive director Gareth Rees, as well as by British TV producer Lorraine Heggessey, and private equity firm LDC which is part of Lloyds Banking Group Plc.
 
 
Lorraine Heggessey was actually the former controller of BBC One and Chief Executive of Talkback Thames and took over as Chair of the newly created company Boom Pictures.   She commented on this deal by saying “I am delighted to be teaming up with Boomerang and LDC to launch Boom Pictures, a new production business in the UK's vibrant independent sector… LDC is an investor with a great track record in understanding the complex demands of building a media company, with the resources to support Boom Pictures as it grows”.
 
The Olswang team, a big international Technology, Media and Telecoms law firm who advised the management team on the buy-out commented that they look forward to continuing the relationship as the business grows internationally.
 
LDC, which plans to invest £200m in the expanding domestic TV production sector over the next two years, expects the management buyout deal to drive significant growth at Boomerang/Boom/Bulb.
 
BBC
 
The BBC is the medium for the Boom pictures media.  It’s governed by twelve trustees.  Although they are all interesting, I would like to comment on two of them only.
 
Since 2011, the BBC has been led by Chairman Lord Patten, an Oxford graduate who had a 45 year political career including Westminster and the European Commission, Governor of Hong Kong when it was handed over to China; and chairman of the Independent Commission for Policing in Northern Ireland which set up a new police service.  Proof the BBC is foremost political.
 
Anthony Fry is a trustee who also trained at Oxford and then had a city career with Rothschilds, mega financial advisory group, and split his time between banking and corporate boards.  In 1996, he left Rothschilds “to become head of global media and European telecoms at BZW/CSFB where he developed a deep understanding of the UK and global media industries.”  From media he went to Lehman Brothers, a global financial services firm, and was head of UK operations.  He left there in 2007 (handily just before the company went bust!) to do an advanced management programme at Harvard Business School.  Then he joined the global investment banking boutique, Evercore Partners, in 2008 and was senior adviser until 2011 when he was appointed chairman of Espirito Santo Investment Bank UK, which incorporated Execution Noble (meaning?  Execution of the Noble Plan?  Or the New World Order perhaps?).  Anthony, of course, is very interested in how businesses work since money makes the business world go round and he holds a number of non-executive directorships alongside his position as BBC Trustee. In other words, he is very well connected and involved in making sure we get “the right picture”.
 
 
The BBC Worldwide is the last part of this broadcasting pyramid I’ll mention here. It’s actually a side shoot because it’s the commercial arm of the BBC and growing fast.  In contrast to the BBC’s Public Purposes as set out in its Charter: (1) sustaining citizenship and civil society;(2) promoting education and learning;(3) stimulating creativity and cultural excellence;(4) representing the UK, its nations, regions and communities; (5) bringing the UK to the world and the world to the UK; and (6) in promoting its other purposes, helping to deliver to the public the benefit of emerging communications technologies and services and, in addition, taking a leading role in the switchover to digital television; the mission of the BBC Worldwide is simply “to maximise profits on behalf of the BBC by creating, acquiring, developing and exploiting media content and media brands around the world.”  This, it is said, is done in order to keep the UK licence fee as low as possible even though it’s possible to watch it on the Internet for free.
Under the previous BBC Trust chairman, Sir Michael Lyons, there were complaints about this commercial arm being anti-competitive.  It’s obvious to me that it’s all about the B’org’s agenda and competitive fairness has nothing to do with it.  Funny how all the names begin with ‘B’: BBC, Bulb, Boomerang, Boom, Bubble, Bust, Big Brother, B’org, Broadcasting, Bullshit!

Anyway, watch TV and watch out because you are in danger of being assimilated by the B’org.  Would that bring peace of mind?  Perhaps being hypnotised is a type of peace of mind, but not the one I seek.  Maybe even just staring long enough at the above logo from the Bulb Films website might do the trick.

The B’org is all about ET

 
Whether you believe in one God (see The B’org’s Prayer), or Reptilian aliens from another dimension (see David Icke), scientific evidence, or don’t know what to believe anymore, there are some things that are quite clear to me, and they are not for the benefit of anyone on our planet Earth.
 
Take GM for one example.  I just got an email from GM Freeze with this statement: “Huge investments for genetically modifying wheat have been made by the BBSRC (grant to Rothamsted Research’s Wheat 20:20 project) and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (US$10 million grant to the John Innes Centre for research into GM nitrogen fixing cereals).”
 
As the name implies, GM Freeze is supposed to be about halting the advancement of genetically modified organisms.  However, they don’t seem to be getting anywhere but rather are slipping in their stance with statements such as this “warning that governments and scientists not rely too heavily (my emphasis) on wheat genetics to improve food security.”  GM is a farce (to put it politely).  GM has absolutely nothing to do with food security, at least not on Earth.  Which makes me wonder on what planet’s behalf this research is being conducted (see my article about GM potatoes called Two-Faced, Half-Baked Scam).
 
Could GM be important for another planet?  Let’s take space exploration for another example.  I ask the question:  What good does space exploration do for me or the average person in the street (so to speak)?  To be honest, I know I could live a perfectly happy life without it.  And personally, I’d prefer to spend the money on providing the people on this planet with a peaceful, good wholesome life than using up the Earth’s resources to “find life somewhere else”.  OK, I can understand the curiosity, but not THE Curiosity, the Mars Science lab, at least not with the condition that we find our home, Earth.
 
Science is an interesting form of religion.  In the fourth episode of Dara O’Briain’s Science Club, a few more clues as to what is really going on came to light and the rest of this article is about this show.  In the program it is mentioned that fat people are desirable because they can travel in space without food by living off their reserves and astronauts are 30% more likely to get cancer while in space.  Is it just a coincidence that the food being pushed on the Earth’s inhabitants from the so-called advanced civilisations cause obesity and cancer?  Or is this to benefit space exploration in some way?  I’m open to suggestions to explain why the food in supermarkets is becoming more and more dangerous to our health.  I made a video to say that Supermarkets are Designed to Malnourish Us.  But the maker of the video was too kind with this title.  They are really designed to make us fat, make us ill, even deformed, and make us die miserably and often prematurely.
 
The cosmologist, Martin Reese was a guest on O’Briain’s show.  I wrote a review about his book, Our Final Century in which he says “humankind will remain vulnerable so long as it stays confined here on Earth.”  This is the mentality that is fuelling the destruction of our planet.  It’s like never washing the dishes and buying more and more and then saying you have to move because there’s no place to put any more dirty dishes and the place is uninhabitable.  What is driving the B’org?  I keep thinking it is pure madness.  Perhaps we are all mad and should concentrate on recovering with Simple Food Remedies and The One Straw Revolution.  That’s my choice.
 
Reese said in the program that he would volunteer for a one-way voyage to Mars.  What?  Leave the beautiful Earth for the barren inhospitable Mars for your final days?  Does that sound sane to you?  Maybe if I read the books he recommends I would understand this better: Last and First Man and Starmaker, both by Olaf Stapleton.  I’ll let you know.
 
A comment was made in the program that we are shifting to more peaceable behaviour and I would like to point out that this is total rubbish.  Not only is there armed, violent conflict going on all over the planet, there is covert destruction happening everywhere.  Nature and every living creature, but especially mankind is being attacked daily by chemicals, EMF, and other mod cons.
 
This quote was in the program:
 
In the deepest sense the search for extraterrestrial intelligence is a search for ourselves (Carl Sagan).
 
I’m searching for intelligence on this planet first and finding it very hard to locate much, especially in those who "govern and are in charge".
 
Finally, but certainly not least, near the end of the program (at 47.25), when Dara is commenting on the noise of a low flying airplane disturbing the broadcast, he says “I would laugh if we were marched into slavery by our alien overlords”.  He would?  I certainly wouldn’t and to be honest it seems that we are very close to it already.  It’s far from funny.  And what made him say such a thing?  What is he thinking about?!
 
This reminded me of a serial program I watched as a child called My Favorite Martian.  I would view it with a whole new perspective now.
 
What a trip!

The Superconducting B’org

This article was inspired by Dara O Briain's Science Club Episode 2, a look at the father of modern physics, Albert Einstein.  In a discussion about the cost of this modern physics beginning at 47 minutes into the program, it mentions that the physics is being tested in the superconducting super collider CERN in Geneva.  The Higgs Boson hunting machine cost US$9 billion, with 1,624 giant superconducting magnets buried in 27 kilometres of tunnels firing 2 beams of protons to within a whisker of the speed of light. But this wasn’t enough for our world.  A project 3x the size of CERN was planned.  Project Erecta Roy Schwitters in Waxahachie, Texas, a suburb of Dallas was discussed and US$2 billion was spent. However, after many years in the making, Congress pulled the plug on funding because it was anticipated that it would cost US$12 billion to complete and the funds would be better spent on other scientific projects.  This left 15 miles (24.14 km) of disused tunnels.  It is claimed that the Superconducting Super Collider (Desertron) was discontinued as a symbol of the government’s responsiveness to the economic downturn in 1993.  Whatever!  I got to wondering what had happened to these tunnels and what I found out was very interesting and ties in with the B’org of Food nicely.
 
After the project was canceled, the main site, located on Farm to Market was deeded to Ellis County, Texas and the county tried numerous times to sell the property. The 135-acre site, which includes 200,000 square feet of space was finally sold in August 2006 to an investment group, GVA Cawley.  It was marketed as a data center but ended up being bought on 31 January 2012 by a chemical company called Magnablend, Inc.  The company purchased the property after a big fire at its nearby premises in Waxahachie on West Highway 287.  It was reported that the most prevalent chemical found at the site was anhydrous ammonia and I’ll write a little about this below.
 
Magnablend, custom chemical manufacturing, blending and packaging began in Waxahachie in 1979 and also has operations in Pennsylvania, Wyoming and North Dakota.  It caters to a variety of industries, including oil (fracking), agriculture (fertilizers), pet and animal feed (supplement), water treatment, environmental remediation, construction and industrial/commercial cleaners.
 
According to the Magnablend website, the 15 miles of tunnels have been closed, filled, and are inaccessible.  Mmm … I wonder what they filled them with.  I also wonder what percentage of the 200,000 square feet of space was lost with this action.  Some answers along with a threat came from this blog.  Some say water is filling the tunnels.  The threat is in a comment to file criminal charges against those responsible for trespassing on the site signed by “the Owner”.  Purportedly there is a sheriff's station across the street guarding the premises day and night!  So the property is still costing the taxpayer and for what?
 
See the photos now.  They show the scale of the operation.  I was thinking this site might as well be on Mars for all it has to do with its environment, like much of the developed world today.  And if we keep moving in this direction, that's where we'll end up, on barren inhospitable Mars!
 
 






 


In 2011, Magnablend recapitalized the company in partnership with an investor group consisting of TGF Management Corporation, Austin Ventures, and Cotton Creek Capital. The recapitalization will support Magnablend's continued growth and geographic expansion. Magnablend has big sights for developing the spread (literally) of its chemicals all over the world and many business people agree this is a sound business forecast. So what about the chemical, anhydrous ammonia, which was found in abundance at the fire in Waxahachie.
 
Anhydrous Ammonia is ammonia with the water removed. It boils at −33.34 °C (−28.012 °F) at a pressure of 1 atmosphere, and so the liquid must be stored under high pressure or at low temperature.  Some stats from Wiki: “The global production of ammonia for 2012 is anticipated to be 198 million tonnes,[7] a 35% increase over the estimated 2006 global output of 146.5 million tonnes.[8]  It is caustic and hazardous and can be absorbed into the body by inhalation, ingestion, eye contact and skin contact.
 
48,630 pounds of the chemical were reported to be present at Magnablend’s site at the time of the fire in October 2011.  If one considers this to be a lot, consider the fact that China produces about 20% more than the USA and India and Russia also produce more than the USA.  Where is all this caustic hazardous material going?  Over 80% is spread over the ground in order to fertilize agricultural crops, especially corn and wheat!  In addition, it is used to eliminate microbes on beef and in animal feed.  Lovely.
 
Besides the above and a few other uses, anhydrous ammonia is a critical ingredient in making the drug called methamphetamine.  The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the USA has made it legal for treating ADHD and exogenous obesity (obesity originating from factors outside of the patient's control, mmm) in both adults and children!  It is also used to treat narcolepsy and ... treatment-resistant depression, another mmm ... It really makes me wonder.  The substance saw its first widespread application in WW2, when it was prescribed to German military personnel.  I knew they mustve been on something.
 
Like heroin, methamphetamine is illegal at the same time as being legal.   Also, one can make this drug by buying the ingredients legally, but the process is a bit hazardous.
 
It’s no doubt that the world is mad about chemicals today, just have a look at the long list of Chemical Manufactures in the world, or maybe even better yet, have a look at the “Hot Products” and “New Suppliers” on one website alone.  These chemicals are available to just about anyone to buy or sell online all over the world.  Do you have fine and specialty chemical products to sell?  Fill in the form and get in touch!
 
In conclusion, the Big Organisation of food and other things on our planet today includes a lot of chemicals.  The people working in this industry are superconducting a quick demise for life as we know it.  They are orchestrating super collisions between life and chemicals at an ever quicker pace.  I haven’t gone into the details of the damage caused by any chemicals in this article because there’s too much to say.  I just wanted to point out the scale of the industry.

Hip Hop B’org of Directors

I innocently tuned into the BBC iPlayer to watch a program about hip hop stars and soon found myself in the midst of the B’org of Directors.  What in the world does hip hop have to do with the board of directors of big global corporations?
 
Start out Backstage and a minute into the film there is a credit to the Roc-A-Fella Records and Island Def Jam Music Group.  Shortly thereafter, I did not become interested in watching the film, but did become interested in doing some research.
 
My first question was whether Roc-A-Fella had anything to do with Rockefeller, you know, the well-known wealthy family, oil tycoons, and of course, it does.  Next, I discovered that Roc-A-Fella Records is a subsidiary of Universal Music Group (UMG).  Island Def Jam Music Group is a close relative because it was formed in 1999 when Universal Music Group merged two of its daughter companies Island Records and Def Jam Recordings.
 
Roc-A-Fella Records was founded in 1996 by Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter, Damon "Dame" Dash, and Kareem "Biggs" Burke.  Jay-Z is not only a hip hop entertainer; he’s an entrepreneur worth $450 million according to Forbes.  Dame is also an entrepreneur, but it was reported that he didn’t know what to do with himself and his net worth has fallen to $2 million.  Biggs was recently convicted with others of conspiracy to distribute as well as possessing with intent to distribute over 100kg of marijuana and is currently doing five years in prison.
 
Biggs left the company in 2004 and “it’s a well known fact that Jay-Z let the TIs talk him into paying Dame Dash $20 million or some shit for his stake in Roc-A-Fella, Rocawear, and anything else the two of them may have co-owned, back when Jay-Z was installed as the straw boss at Def Jam.” This is from an article about how Dame Dash is now claiming to be bringing the defunct company back with the album Pilot Talk by Curren$y.
 
Whatever is going on with Roc-A-Fella Records though is not really important because it's owned by UMG which in turn is owned by the French multinational corporation Vivendi SA (formerly known as Vivendi Universal) that is involved in mass media and telecommunications.
 
I noted that in 2004, 80% of the Vivendi Universal Entertainment branch was sold to GE to form NBC Universal and on January 25, 2011, GE purchased Vivendi's stake in a joint venture with Comcast.  Funnily enough, NBC Universal is headquartered in the Rockefeller Plaza in Midtown Manhattan, New York City (that name again).
 
Further, Vivendi and UMG acquired EMI Recorded Music on 28 September 2012.
 
So from hip hop, I went to Universal Music to the French Vivendi and side-tracked to GE.  What do they all have in common?  Besides connections with the name Rockefeller and entertainment, they share directors.  And why am I writing about this on my blog about food?  Because many of the directors of these corporations are serving or have served on the board of directors of the B’org of Food!  It’s an exercise in showing just how buddy buddy things are at the top.  It’s an example of what I mean by the B’org of Directors.  It’s also another reason to worry about what you view on “the big screen” at home and away!  There’s no independence and total control in much of what is being aired.
 
Now for some of the mundane details, I’ll list some of the directors of these few media conglomerates and their connections to the B’org of Food.  This is just a snapshot of the B’org of Directors, but I think it’ll give you the idea.
 
I drew a diagram to help keep the companies straight and started out with Roc-A-Fella Records since that is where my journey down this path began. As I’ve already mentioned, Roc-A-Fella Records is owned by UMG.  The Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and Member of the Management Board of UMG, Lucian Grainge CBE, served as a Member of the Management Board at Vivendi.  So you see here a direct hands-on relationship between the hip hop company and the big French media magnate.

The directors of UMG, Inc., are not listed on their website, but I found them on the Bloomsburg Businessweek website.  Besides Lucian Grange (52), there are Barry Weiss, Marinus N. Henny and Jesus Lopez who have basically focused their careers in the music industry.
 
So now onto the bigger fish where they swim around without barriers.
 
Vivendi
 
Of the eleven directors listed on the Bloomsberg Businessweek website, I found the information on the following five particularly interesting.
 
Jean-René Fourtou serves as a Director of Nestle India Ltd., Schneider Electric; La Poste, NBC Universal and Rhodia.
 
Dominique Dubreuil B.A. (Law), M.A. (Public Relations) serves as Chairwoman of Rémy Cointreau SA.
 
Daniel Camus serves as a Director of France EDF Energy1 and Great Britain EnBW AG.
 
Jacqueline Bakker has been a Non Executive Director of Tesco plc since January 1, 2009.
 
Pierre Rodocanachi has received three honorary doctorates and was named Commander of the British Empire in recognition of returning ICL PLC to profitability.  Commander of the British Empire?  Well, actually, Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE).  I reserve comment for now except that I find this title offensive.
 
Now on to GE, the owner of NBC Universal of which Jean-René Fourtou above is a director.  Fourtou also has his fingers in Nestle in India, which is promoted by Nestle Alimentana S.A. through a wholly owned subsidiary, Nestle Holdings Ltd., Nassau, Bahama Islands (I wonder if this has to do with tax evasion?). This company is in the food processing business of dairy, fruit and other and according to the Economic Times, GlaxoSmithKline (the pharmaceutical giant) is the biggest competitor at present.  But I stray off the beaten track ...
 
General Electric (GE)
 
Jeff Immelt is the CEO of GE as well as NBC Universal.  He is the ninth CEO of GE and has held positions in the company’s Plastics, Appliance, and Healthcare businesses.  I didn’t know GE was into healthcare!  I can see why though since modern medicine requires lots of electricity (all those operating theatres!).
 
 
On the GE website, there are 18 “Independent” directors listed including Jeff (no mention of any “Dependent” ones).  Here are the food connections I found, but please follow the link for more information.
 
1.      W. Geoffrey Beattie is a director of Maple Leaf Foods Inc.
2.     Dr. James I. Cash, Jr is a director of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.
3.     Marijn E. Dekkers “joined Bayer, a global healthcare, crop science and material science company, on January 1, 2010, first serving as interim CEO of Bayer Healthcare and since October 2010 has served as chairman of Bayer's management group”.  Bayer: From Aspirin to Heroin to Yasmin.
4.     Ann M. Fudge didn’t fudge her B’org career.  She worked at General Mills and at General Foods, where she served in a number of positions including president of Kraft General Foods’ Maxwell House Coffee Company and president of Kraft’s Beverages, Desserts and Post Divisions. Ms. Fudge is a director of Novartis AG, Unilever PLC and Infosys Ltd. She is chair of the U.S. Program Advisory Panel of the Gates Foundation, and a trustee of the Rockefeller Foundation (there’s that Rockefeller name again).
5.     Alan G. (A.G.) Lafley served as chief executive officer then chairman of the board of Protector and Gamble (see photo above for some of P&Gs products).
6.     Robert W. Lane served as chief financial officer and president, and then as chief executive officer of Deere in its global construction equipment and agricultural divisions.
7.     Ralph S. Larsen is a former Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer at Johnson & Johnson, pharmaceutical, medical and consumer products.
8.     Rochelle B. Lazarus serves as a director of Merck & Co., Inc., (pharmaceuticals), the American Museum of Natural History, the World Wildlife Fund (“vehicle for controlling wildlife parks in Africa and elsewhere in which terrorist groups and mercenaries can gather, train...” Icke, the Biggest Secret) and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts (where I studied at the School of American Ballet).
9.     James J. Mulva is a member of the board of visitors for the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.
10. Sam Nunn is a director of The Coca-Cola Company.
11.   Douglas A. Warner III is chairman of the board of managers and the board of overseers of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, and a director at Anheuser-Busch Companies, Inc.
 
The directors I didn’t list are involved in energy, science and financing which all have to do with modern food production too, but I kept the list to the most obviously food related for ease of reference.  I listed the cancer centers because this disease is caused by the sorry food and drugs we consume today.
 
That’s it for now.  As one can see, hip hop has become big business, all of which is orchestrated by the B’org of Directors.  I guess it’s not surprising that hip hop ties into the global Agenda of poisoning the masses with chemicals, some of which are even called food.  Hip hop ... from one corporation to another in order to carry out “the Plan”.  What a scam. I think I’ll do my own hip hop jam.  Man.  Cash in on Uncle Sam or Give a damn and Take the next tram.
 
I predict that “staying alive” might be the theme taking over from the popular hip hop cash, money theme soon.  Ah, Ha, Ha, Ha, staying alive ...  I’ll give a helping clue to conclude: money ain’t gonna save anyone.

Disability is Good for the Economy



Ok.  This is not going to be taken well by some people.  But the facts are the facts.
 
First of all, there are big corporations out there who are in the business of drugs and cheap food.  Who are the most likely to take drugs and eat junk, nutritionally bereft food?  Two groups – the poor and anyone with a disease or disability, often in a hospital or care home.
 
Business is all about increasing sales.  Mmm ... think about it.  Think about the chief executive of a transnational pharmaceutical company.  Do you think for one moment that this CEO would like to see a world that no longer required his company’s products?  It’s sick and perverse, but the system we have in place dictates that this CEO would have to want more people needing his company’s products.  The fact that these products are an indication of pain and misery does not seem to faze such CEOs.  In addition, this situation calls for creating more dependent humans.
 
What I see happening is that civilisation is becoming sicker and sicker.  There are billions of deformed, dependent, terminally ill, etc, etc people in the world today.  I believe that they are the backbone of the new age economy that is fast forming.
 
Not only are these people very compliant and willing to try whatever drug one cares to give them, they seem happy with whatever concoction is provided as food.  I wrote an article about feeding tubes.  That is the ultimate food for corporations, a slow drip, day in and day out of the same chemical cocktail that lasts for years on the shelf.  No worries about how the product is made or what goes in it, except will it keep the user alive.  Those taking it are often incapable of complaining and, if there is a next of kin or interested party, they usually just throw their hands up to the medical profession because it’s all beyond them.
 
It’s a big industry, caring for the sick and disabled.  There’s equipment, like wheelchairs, hoists and special baths.  There’s cleaning chemicals for them and the home.  There are drugs, lots of them.  There’s a need for cheap food which opens all kinds of avenues such as genetically modified foods, big ag and big factories.  There’s no need for real quality of life.  After all, the intelligence level can be quite low or simply numbed by the drugs.  The only requirement is to have them Stay Alive.
 
There’s no thought for the environment, and boy, talk about waste!  Plastic bags are used for putting in everything from soiled clothing in the wash to food waste.  The cleaning chemicals are used frequently without any worry.  Washing machines operate practically 24/7.  Heating operates 24/7.  Disposable pads are used.  Disposable gloves.  Disposable paper towelling.  Disposable syringes.  Lots of toxic waste is produced in the care of the sick and disabled.
 
This is what I mean about this topic not being popular.  Loved ones usually do not want to let go of close ones suffering from a disease or disability.  Even strangers are amused by disabled people smiling and making eye gestures, like one is with a cute pet.  I’m not advocating that we should take steps to end lives here though.  I’m just pointing out that the economic market reality that we currently live in is promoting the creation of more people with these issues.
 
It’s a cruel world that promotes the growth of the number of humans being confined to wheelchairs and beds, often without the ability to talk, their sole purpose it would seem, to be consumers.  It's a cruel world that fosters the growth of the number of unhealthy and mentally deficient people.  It’s one thing to be a consumer and be able to think about the products and complain if they don’t work.  It’s a whole new ball game when the consumers are totally dependent.
 
Is this slide into less than mediocrity on purpose?  Or is it an accident?  Whatever it is, it is happening.  Just look around you at the people in the world to see it.
 
In the UK, according to the Papworth Trust in 2011, about 200 babies are born every week with a learning disability, 1 of 20 children under the age of 16 are disabled and there are over 10 million disabled adults (24%) with about 770,000 being wheelchair users.  Of course, these statistics depend on what is officially considered disabled and people registering as such.  But whatever way one looks at it, the situation is not improving and we have a system in place that will ensure that it only gets worse.
 
One last point, with more and more jobs being performed by machines and the increase in the use of robots, the only purpose left for the vast majority of people will be to be consumers, and the disabled are very obliging ones.

Please also see my article called Survival of the fittest in the market economy for more information about the direction the current market economy is heading.
