DYING FOR THE RICH

PEOPLE DIE TO BRING THE RICH THEIR DIAMONDS AND THE DIAMOND CARTEL GOES UNCHALLENGED BY REGULATORS


You were ripped off when you bought your diamond. Diamonds are stored in order to manipulate demand and the price is controlled. Regulators around the world seem to turn a blind eye. But do you also have blood on your hands, in your ears or elsewhere on your body?

Diamonds are an example of political cowardice and the failure of regulators to practice what they preach. Every other cartel is challenged though the oil companies are probably protected in some form or another. The price of diamonds is manipulated, every day, and has been so for decades even a century or more.

SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILDREN


THE COMMERCIAL EXPLOITATION OF CHILDREN


INTERNATIONAL AUTHORITIES STILL ALLOW NON NUDE MODEL WEB SITES


It is September 2013: Like drugs, child exploitation for gratuitious fulfillment, is big business. Enter the search term "preteen non nude models" to gain an idea that in 2013 globally, authorities have largely allowed these predators to fourish under the proposition that if there are no nude photos it is legal.

Very young, even baby girls, in g-strings provocatively photographed. If the web site I have nominated does not display then I have succeeded in having it blocked or even shut down.
From these disturbing images the user can link through a maze of different sites each designed to filter the traffic. Moving from multiple erotic pictures to hard porn sites. These sites use carefully crafted registration and reporting forms to filter out, and identify, the discerning client. Those wiling to pay to be voyeurs and ultimatley those seeking much more in hedonistic, perverted pursuits.

So how is it that so many flourish? Statistics show that the most likely abuser of a child is a relative, or friend, and the statistics are frighteningly quite high in numbers. In every local community in most countries there are likely to be those who view these sites and do much more. This is not merely unpalatable it is simply child exploitation. What parent or guardian allowed these pictures ot be taken and loaded to the wb?

Viewing the scantily clad child is not a limited hobby. It is vertical, and horizontal, throughout society from the lowest socio economic group to the highest, through the professionsm business and other sectors of our communities. The shields that protect these people are similar to the shields that protect the users of drugs. Belwo in this web site is an article on this from 2006 so how is it that there are hundreds of thousands of these sites flourishing on the web? Is it protection of free speech, protection of the right of publication or what fine line of protection to they enjoy?

It's harmless just looking isn't it? Across the world you can
add your voice. (Kevin R Beck, "Close the Preteen Model Web Sites and shut suspect Child Model Agencies Down", 2013)


Extract: Australian advertisers accused of “corporate paedophilia’ (AFP), 10 October 2006, SYDNEY

"Advertising that exploits children's sexuality for commercial gain is on the rise in Australia as big retailers lend an air of respectability to corporate paedophiles, researchers said on Tuesday. An increasing number of businesses found it acceptable to eroticise young models for profit, increasing children’s risk from sexual predators and robbing them of their childhood, the
Australia Institute think tank said. Institute director Clive Hamilton said it was particularly worrying that the phenomenon had entered the mainstream and condemned major retail chains for jumping on the bandwagon. “When family department stores show no conscience on these issues, or are inured to the effects of their behaviour, the situation is very unhealthy,” he said. In a report the independent public policy research centre said children as young as three were being made to pose in sexually suggestive positions."

Advertising to children: Is it ethical? Some psychologists cry foul as peers help advertisers target young consumers. BY REBECCA A. CLAY

Ever since he first started practicing, Berkeley, Calif., psychologist Allen D. Kanner, PhD, has been asking his younger clients what they wanted to do when they grew up. The answer used to be "nurse," "astronaut" or some other occupation with intrinsic appeal. Today the answer is more likely to be "make money." For Kanner, one explanation for that shift can be found in advertising. "Advertising is a massive, multi-million dollar project that's having an enormous impact on child development," says Kanner, who is also an associate faculty member at a clinical psychology training program called the Wright Institute. "

Are corporations
consuming our kids?

In Australia, federal, state and territory governments have refused to legislate minimum standards and curb advertising to children. The reason is that the grocery industry, manufacturers and the media (who receive the money from advertising) are rich and politically powerful. The federal Minister for Health, in 2006, Tony Abott, and others in parliaments argue that parents should educate their children and be responsible in allowing in what they buy, what they eat, what they see and what they hear. Rather than be cynical about the conflict of interest relationships from a political persoective I might content that Australia's political leaders have not studied the psychology of advertising and the art of manipulation in detail. (Kevin R Beck, owner of the Mosaic Portal on the web, 2006).

"An estimated 158 million children aged 5-14 are engaged in child labour - one in six children in the world. Millions of children are engaged in hazardous situations or conditions, such as working in mines, working with chemicals and pesticides in agriculture or working with dangerous machinery. They are everywhere but invisible, toiling as domestic servants in homes, labouring behind the walls of workshops, hidden from view in plantations."

SEXUAL ABUSE AND VIOLATION OF CHILDREN


"The Board of Inquiry was created by the Northern Territory Government in August 2006 to research and report on allegations of sexual abuse of Aboriginal children. The Chief Minister asked the Inquiry to investigate concerns about serious child sexual abuse in Aboriginal communities. The Inquiry was established to find better ways to protect Aboriginal children from sexual abuse. (2006, the Northern Territory of Australia)

Aboriginal child abuse and the NT Intervention, Jun 29th, 2008 by reconciliaction, Update June 2008

In 2007, in response to the Northern Territory Report into sexual abuse – called
Ampe Akelyernemane Meke Makarle (Little Children are Sacred) – the Howard Government announced a national emergency in remote Aboriginal communities in the Northern Territory. The Government’s ‘NT Intervention’ involved sending police and the army into remote communities, alcohol bans, winding back Aboriginal land rights under the NT Aboriginal Land Rights Act, health checks for Aboriginal children and the quarantining of welfare payments in 73 Aboriginal communities. Go to the source document

Child sexual abuse is serious, widespread and often unreported.

Most Aboriginal people are willing and committed to solving problems and helping their children. They are also eager to better educate themselves.

Aboriginal people are not the only victims and not the only perpetrators of sexual abuse.

Much of the violence and sexual abuse occurring in Territory communities is a reflection of past, current and continuing social problems which have developed over many decades.

The combined effects of poor health, alcohol and drug abuse, unemployment, gambling, pornography, poor education and housing, and a general loss of identity and control have contributed to violence and to sexual abuse in many forms.

Existing government programs to help Aboriginal people break the cycle of poverty and violence need to work better. There is not enough coordination and communication between government departments and agencies, and this is causing a breakdown in services and poor crisis intervention. Improvements in health and social services are desperately needed.

"The Northern Territory government's abuse of Aboriginal children has now been laid bare for all to see.

The tragic death of young Deborah Melville should never be forgotten. While a NT jury acquitted her Aboriginal foster carers of manslaughter the facts speak for themselves. Deborah died an excruciating death from an infection that had spread through her body. She received no medical assistance and languished in the dirt of her foster carer's backyard. A government child protection worker visited her only a day before her death and told her, presumably as she lay dying, - 'I'm not here to take you away'. The inhumanity of this case is compounded by evidence of systemic human rights abuses of Aboriginal children authorised within the operation and under the guise of 'child protection'."

Sexualisation of kids in media, Author: Lyn Allison

Summary: Australian Democrats leader Senator Lyn Allison raises concerns about the sexualisation of children in the media and advertising. We’re forcing our children to become sexual beings before they’re ready. Media and advertising agencies are turning kids, particularly young girls, into sexual commodities — and the effect is devastating. The sexualisation of children can have grave psychological implications. We know that the exploitation of adolescents as sexual objects increases the risk of depression, anxiety, eating disorders and low self-esteem. Body image fears can act as a barrier to young girls’ participation in sport, and the time, money and mental energy they devote to their appearance distracts from other developmental activities — physical, intellectual and artistic. This trend also encourages children to initiate sexual behaviour at an earlier age, before they fully understand the consequences. It’s leading to a higher incidence of unwanted sex and is aiding the spread of sexually transmitted infections. Psychologists warn that the sexualisation of children could play a role in “grooming” children for paedophiles. For example, most girls’ magazines actively encourage primary school girls to have “crushes” on adult male celebrities." (Australian Democrats Election 2010)

"Conflict" or "Blood" diamonds. Dead, maimed and displaced people are the true measure of the greed, and cowardice, of the western world. _ Many profit from the blood.

Then we have the arms dealers, the US, Britain, France, Italy, every western nation and others like Russia and China, who all are in the war and killing business, supplying weapons to assist a country, the revolutionaries, the slave traders and the mad war lords to kill their own country men.

Diamonds are a mark of sleaze, despair, brutality, inhumanity and murder. Diamonds are a girl's best friend. Thus the war mongers and the killers are their best friends too. Diamonds sparkle but they are cold. They are the most prominent symbol of
greed and corruption on earth for they have no utility. Diamonds, they just feed the vanity of the wearer and that includes me. (Kevin Beck, "Allure", Melbourne Australia

CORPORATE PERSONS



Historic - archive commentary: The Australian government, of John Howard, has stood resolute about the American's right to incarcerate any of the world's citizens beyond the reach of the US Courts and US Constitution. Be it ina Cuba or flying around the world in CIA planes. This is indeed a strange and difficult thing to comprehend and one wonders what the Australian government of John Howard may hold as "values" other than a some ethereal concept of a failed battle, Gallipoli? For over five years John Howard, and the cabinet members, trashed hundreds of years of legal system. Then suddenly the wind changed and Mr. Howard sensed that a large segment of previously unmoved Australians were questioning what it is that the government stands for in relation to the rights of citizens. The Departments of Attorney General, Immigration and Foreign Affairs had managed to collectivley demonstrate an ineptitude and a culture that looked to be a spreading cancer in the Australian federal bureaucracy. Australian residents had been deported and detained and hundreds of caes came to light. In March 2007 suddenly David Hicks became a political hot potato.

Mysteriously the military trial was convened. Then this desperate and dangerous person, according to the constant refrain of senior government Ministers was to be returned to Australia to serve but nine months. The plea bargain excluded the participatio of the US military prosecution and thus is yet another example of the questionable ethics and probity of the US justice system where the Executive places itself above the spirit of the US Constitution and the legal system effectively merging both into the poitical spectrum. Australia and the United States have decided that the fundamental plank of democracy, the separation of powers, shall only apply when they deem it to be in their political interest or of no threat to their power and autocracy. (Kevin Beck, "Liberal philosphy jettisoned in favour of poltical expediency and populism", Melbourne Australia)

HISTORY WILL REPEAT ITSELF AFTER JOHN HOWARD

Mark my words

Future Australian governments (both Labor and Liberal 2015 onwards) will incarcerate refugee asylum seekers, off shore

PEOPLE HOMELESS IN A RICH WORLD ARE PEOPLE TOO
Kevin Rudd and his stone in the pond


The Prime Minister of Australia Kevin Rudd made much of the homeless in his pre-election speeches of 2007. Now in 2008 we can judge him: Homeless in Australia

The homeless forums are world wide and open day and night in every time zone every day of the week.

However, if it’is the 15th of the month wherever you are in the world, we invite you each month to make time to logon to the homeless forums and help improve the forums by spending time reading threads, replying to threads and if you have something new to say or just want to introduce yourself – to start a new topic.

The concept of promoting the 15th of every month as a day we all focus on the forums is just an idea I wanted to float. If it works out we will continue with the promotion. Either way, as a member of the community, if you are available, you are invited to the first “Forum the 15th, let's see how it goes:

See you in the homeless forums - on the 15th or just whenever.
