Blood Money

This is a note to all the successful people of this world. Not just the people owning multi-million dollar homes, private jets and fancy yachts. Not just the people in the board rooms of multi-national corporations. Not just the people with Mercedes 500SL’s, Bang&Olufsen stereos, Rolex watches, Gucci shoes and Louis Vuitton hand-bags. Not just the people who travel first class on airlines, live in 5 star hotels and are members of elite clubs.

No, this is also a note to those of you who studied hard to make it into and through uni. Who slave all their life to get ahead in their jobs and not be left behind. And especially those who teach, work for the government or in the corporate media.

Let me ask you one thing: How does it feel to have all that blood on your hands?

The blood of the innocent Iraqi, Lebanese and Palestinian children killed with your tax dollars. The blood of the victims of the drugs sold by your rogue government. The blood of the people starved to death by your government, IMF and United Nations. The blood of the people killed by your government in false flag terrorist attacks.

The blood of the people tortured to death in Azerbaijanian, Israeli, Egyptian and Pakistani prisons on behalf of your government.

You make me sick.

Is that what you call being successful? Killing other people to get ahead?

You haven’t killed or tortured anyone, you are saying? You got to be kidding. You are an accomplice, a facilitator and an accessory after the fact.

You know that your government has pulled off 9/11 and 7/7. You know that they have murdered more than one million Iraqi. You know that they rob blind all the countries of the so-called third world. You know that they are sending billions and billions to Israel to help with the Palestinian genocide. You know that they are false imprisoning and torturing people whose views they don’t like. And you have done nothing, except repeat the government’s and the corporate media’s lies.

You have shut up because you don’t want to rock the boat. You shut up because you don’t want to loose your job. You shut up because you don’t want people think you are a trouble-maker. You shut up because all you care about is money.

All the money that you use to send your kids to a private school. All the money that you pay for prestigious cars and a nice home. All the money that you use to pay for nice wine, restaurants, massages, facials and hair dressers. All the money you use to buy holidays, jewellery and designer clothes. Blood money.
