Batteries of psychologists are employed by the media to get inside your head. They use selected colors, patterns, light flashes and subliminal sound on television to open back a channel into your subconscious. Tavistock is just one of many institutes that research new ways to control the human mind.

They will be used to assist the dictatorship to gain absolute control of 280 million people.

"Building supply side capacity" implies the destruction of food sovereignty and the reorientation of Third World agriculture to corporate farming of cash crops for exports. "Trade related infrastructure" implies privatization of energy and water services, privatization of highways, ports and airports and the Walmartisation of retail. In other words, the aid for trade implies World Bank and IMF using their financial muscle to impose trade liberalization and privatization as conditionalities on developing countries.

The chickenhawks have put the war back in class warfare. Under globalization, Baghdad and New Orleans really are interchangeable. It’s not just the American worker, but the American citizen, who is being brought down to the same level as a citizen of the Third World. Apparently, human rights are only for those with the money to buy them -- and the price is going up, up, up, right along with oil.

Of course, business could play an important part in overcoming poverty in Africa – socially responsible local business, that is. But central to the Africa Commission’s blueprint is the role of public-private partnerships (PPP), in which the private sector is contracted to build and operate basic infrastructure like roads and ports, or provide basic essential services like water and electricity, for profit. We are talking here about multinational companies; local businesses get the small sub-contracting jobs.

For the last few years the Ghanaian market has been flooded with cheap
imported chicken from the European Union and the United States. This phenomenon is known as "dumping."

A panel set up by the Counsel on Foreign Relations wants Americans to stop thinking of themselves as United States citizens and to think of themselves as just North Americans. The panel has published a report called “Building a North American Community” in which it proposes a single common border around the three countries.
