Henry Ford’s reign of terror: Greed and murder in Depression-era Detroit

At the height of his power, Henry Ford created a secret army of criminals to rule over his burgeoning empire

Henry Ford was relaxing in a New York hotel room one day when he met a man named Harry Bennett. He was a little figure — five-foot-seven, 145 pounds, with hard blue eyes, receding brown hair, and a bulldog jaw. The New York Times columnist Arthur Brisbane introduced the two. Bennett was from Ann Arbor, Michigan, not far from where Henry lived. The twenty-four-year-old was just out of the navy, where he had served as a deep-sea diver and had boxed under the name…

L. Ron Hubbard’s Great-Grandson Spills The Family Secrets On How Scientology Started. Eek.

At 1:46, we learn about L. Ron’s dream to con everyone. At 3:40, we hear about the horrifying threats. At 5:42, the church takes the family secrets. At 7:00, I laugh

Diese zehn Konzerne beherrschen Essenunser Essen

Verwirrende Vielfalt: Nur zehn Konzerne stehen hinter all diesen Marken

Oxfam International

Verwirrende Vielfalt: Nur zehn Konzerne stehen hinter all diesen Marken

An ihnen kommt man auf dem Weg durch den Supermarkt kaum vorbei: den Lebensmittelkonzernen wie Nestlé, Unilever oder Mondelez. Die Organisation Oxfam zeigt in einer Übersicht, wem welche Marke gehört – als Mittel, um mit Hilfe der Verbraucher Druck auf die Konzerne zu machen.

Hamburg – Auf den ersten Blick ist die Grafik genauso verwirrend wie ein Rundlauf durch den Supermarkt: unzählige Marken mit fantasievollen Namen für Schokoriegel, Frühstücksflocken, Softdrinks, Jogurts oder Tütensuppen. Doch in der Mitte des Bildes führen Pfeile zu nur zehn der größten globalen Lebensmittelkonzerne.

Produkte wie Coca-Cola Chart zeigen, Pepsi Chart zeigen, Mars oder Kellogg’s Cornflakes sind noch recht einfach mit den gleichnamigen Herstellern in Verbindung zu bringen. Dass Weltmarktführer Nestlé Chart zeigen auch Buitoni-Nudeln, Maggi-Würze oder Kitkat-Riegel zu seinem Markenreich zählt, dürfte schon weniger bekannt sein. “Behind the Brands” zeigt, dass Knorr und Langnese zu Unilever Chart zeigen gehören, Milka und Philadelphia zum von Kraft Foods Chart zeigen abgespaltenen Unternehmen Mondelez Chart zeigen (Jacobs-Kaffee inzwischen nur noch zum Teil).

Da die Übersicht international ist, tauchen auch angelsächsische Firmen auf, mit denen deutsche Kunden weniger in Berührung kommen: Associated British Foods (ABF) Chart zeigen (immerhin Ovomaltine und Twinings-Tee, außerdem Eigner der Bekleidungskette Primark) und General Mills (zum Beispiel Häagen-Dazs-Eis).

Erstellt hat die Grafik die Entwicklungshilfeorganisation Oxfam, die damit Verbraucher mobilisieren will, die Hersteller ihrer Lieblingsprodukte zu besserem Handeln zu bewegen. Auf ihrer Kampagnenseite listet die Gruppe das Verhalten der Konzerne in sieben Kategorien auf, die mehr oder weniger mit dem Kampf gegen Hunger in der Welt zusammenhängen. Laut Oxfam gehe Kellogg’s besonders rücksichtslos mit Bauern und Arbeitern um, ABF schere sich nicht um die Wasserversorgung und Danone Chart zeigen lasse den Zulieferern freie Hand beim Landraub für den Anbau ihrer Zutaten.

Grünes Licht gibt es nur für Nestlé in Bezug auf das Klima und Unilever hinsichtlich des Umgangs mit Bauern. Oxfam hat das Ranking jedoch bereits viermal innerhalb eines Jahres aktualisiert und dabei beachtliche Fortschritte gemessen – was als Ausweis des Erfolgs der eigenen Kampagne gezählt wird. Zum Beispiel haben Coca-Cola und Pepsi ein Bekenntnis abgegeben, null Toleranz gegenüber Landraub zu zeigen. Selbst für Branchenführer Nestlé bleibe aber noch viel zu tun.

Dozens of Civilians Killed in Fresh Attacks on Gaza. My Tears belong to the children – NOT TO NATIONALITY


Dozens of Civilians Killed in Fresh Attacks on Gaza.

Dozens of Civilians Killed in Fresh Attacks on Gaza

Video

– Warning –

- Graphic Images –

This video shows the horror and reality of the Israeli attack on the people of Gaza. It should only be viewed by a mature audience.

Posted July 20, 2014

 

 

Note from Tom

Anyone viewing these images will undoubtedly be disturbed and angered by the brutality of the Israeli regime. Posting comments that reflect that anger are acceptable provided the do not condemn a particular race or religion for the atrocities of Zionism.

If you care about the suffering of the Palestinian people and Israel’s disregard for common decency, then you will accept that we all have a responsibility to protest this savagery by taking action.

You can not relieve yourself of that duty by posting comments on this page. Join a local protest, or better still, start a local demonstration to demand that Israel stop the genocide of the Palestinian people.

Peace and Joy

Tom
