Blockchain: Anti-Capitalist Revolution or Busine$$ as Usual..?

WHAT IS BLOCKCHAIN?

The term “blockchain” describes a type of internet-based decentralized ledger system which can be used to record transactions and store data in a manner potentially more secure than one might find in a centralized database system. Blockchains are managed using peer-to-peer (p2p) sharing methods, very similar to BitTorrent. Information stored on a blockchain can be shared across a network through encryption and cross-authentication.

Blockchain will change many aspects of how economies function and develop more transparency and accountability within governments, as well as further decentralize information among individuals, companies, and institutions. The future of blockchain technology is a vast open-ended arena that will likely expand our collective intelligence far beyond previous technologies.

The potential for blockchain to alter global society has attracted the attention of technologists and developers, cooperatives and venture capitalists, the FBI and people outside the law, and almost every world government and banking institution. Currently many sectors of society are fertile ground for experimentation and testing of blockchain applications.

‘Monsanto’s Roundup is 2000 times more toxic’ than Glyphosate + A Non Toxic Alternative

It isn’t just the Carcinogenic Glyphosate, it’s the  secret hyper-toxic Additives!

”Famously corrupt and unscrupulous, Monsanto Corporation has now been caught covering up for 44 years the ultra toxic effects of the secret additives in combination with glyphosate in Roundup, the world’s most-used herbicide, making it up to 2000 times more toxic.

The IARC, an agency of the World Health Organization, released a report in March, 2015 that declared the chemical glyphosate to be probably carcinogenic to humans, even without the additives that are up to 2000 times more toxic. They were not provided with tests that include the effects of glyphosate combined with specific trade secret additives. Monsanto is desperate to hide the true carcinogens in its Roundup weed-killer .

The truth is finally coming out even as the Trump regime muzzles and closes down sections of the already compromised Environmental Protection Agency (EPA which has never analyzed the secret additives in 44 years”

Of course plenty of scientific studies must have shown those carcinogenic properties even before Roundup was legalized for use in 1974.  Monsanto have been cynically and criminally buying their way out of problems for generations to scoop gigantic profits. Like Climate Change any curious person could have guessed that all along.  Monsanto KNEW”.

By F. William Engdahl    at “New Eastern Outlook”  (illustrations and some details added)

Glyphosate is the largest component of Monsanto Roundup, the world’s largest weed-killer and the toxin mandated in every Monsanto Genetically Manipulated (GMO) planting. But what Monsanto refuses to disclose is what additives it uses, otherwise termed surfactants or adjuvants, ostensibly to give the glyphosate a “turbo” weed-killer effectiveness boost.

‘It is also now widely used as a desiccant on all kinds of non-GMO crops, especially oats, to kill the crop and weeds before harvest,. This now ‘necessary’ technique increases profits but contaminates our food at levels  ”acceptable” to the industry.

Contaminated with glyphosate and these ultra toxic additives previously and illegally never publicly examined during Roundup’s 44 year history. Extrapolating from the now public toxicity levels over four decades  Monsanto’s Roundup  is almost certainly certainly the cause of millions of agonizing deaths and illnesses worldwide”.

This now rivals or exceeds their crime against humanity in producing, at immense profits, the Agent Orange which was blanket sprayed over Asian countries by the US military from 1964 to 1969.

Those with papers have been separated from those without papers, and we don’t yet know what will happen to them.
A policeman we spoke to outside the police station this morning admitted to following orders that he knows go against the refugees’ rights.
