The Hewlett CEO concluded that, In dark and serious times like this, we must affirm our commitment to building societies and institutions that aspire to this kind of greatness The Greek Experience (Mentor, ME-1718). As the We st's conquest and subjugation of humanity gave way to neocolonialism and global capitalism, the fake philanthropy of John Rockefeller and the robber barons simply went global and complemented the fake philanthropy of the imperial powers.� Playing the �humanitarian� game is quite a racket.� Even �saints� such as Mother Teresa and the pious padre Jun�pero Serra (my elementary school was named after him ) did not fare well under scrutiny.� As I studied the �radical� works of my early mentors, it became obvious that international and American institutions officially devoted to alleviating the suffering of the world�s poorest people were often as phony as Rockefeller �charities.� � The World Bank, International Monetary Fund, USAID, and even the Peace Corps are all neocolonial tools designed to oppress the world�s poor, not help them.� Nearly all of the world�s poorest nations export food to the USA, even as their urban hells are largely fed by Western farms, as different interests at play create such paradoxes.� Overall, it is little different from what the British did to Bengal or even Ireland, where people starve while they ship food to rich nations.� The desire of the world�s poor to be free of colonial and neocolonial oppression, and how Western institutions lie about it, is something that people such as Ralph McGehee learned through bitter experience .� The work of Ch omsky, Ed Herman, and friends is called institutional analysis, structural analysis, or functionalism, but they are often charged with being conspiracy theorists or conspirators themselves, which is the opposite of the truth.� Since the 1980s, I have studied a wide array of analyses, from far-right conspiracy theories to far-left Marxian analytics, and it took me many years to finally realize why neither conspiracists nor structuralists seemed capable of understanding the milieu surrounding exotic technologies and their organized suppression.� Conspiracists believed in conscious manipulation dictating how events manifested, while structuralists believed that conscious intent was not necessary to explain how events transpired.� Although structural analysis is far more sophisticated than conspiracy theories, both views suffer from their foundational assumptions.� Humanity�s current state is largely due to people�s lack of personal integrity and their limited awareness as they try surviving in a world that is complex beyond their understanding, but that does not mean that everybody is so unaware.� Ultra-elites know what they are doing, after a fashion, and they have taken their lack of personal integrity to awe-inspiring levels.� How ever, their control is far less than total and they do not need to micromanage the situation.� As with bears and John Rockefeller, ultra-elites know that if they only control key choke points, they can control the entire planet.� For the herd�s size, the shepherd�s task has been surprisingly easy.� As always, finding an opportune place to intervene in the energy production/consumption process was the key to control and receiving the highest EROI, and ultra-elites � vertically integrated � to control production, or more accurately, to prevent production of FE.� Th e organized suppression of disruptive energy technologies has become a science at the ultra-elite level, and as Chomsky has pointed out, elites will choose hegemony over survival .� However, playing chicken with Earth has even made ultra-elites uneasy, and most currently favor disseminating FE and related technologies, which could readily move humanity back from the brink of the abyss Faith Without Religion: An Atheist Bible from a Socialist Perspective.
