Today, nothing changed in Brazil. The political and corporate parasite classes will continue to suck off of the working people, while the welfare parasite class will continue to feel bad for themselves while lying down on their sorry bottoms waiting for the welfare checks to arrive.
Nowhere in the western world does the human farming model work best than here in Brazil. Once again, at least half of Brazil decided to elect a member of the prostitute political class and in doing so, they deserve what’s coming.
In Brazil, people are so addicted to their misery that they prefer to destroy anything that stands between them, even if that anything includes their country, livelihoods and the future of their children.
The welfare state and cronyism in a so-called democratic government have all demonstrated to be the source of poverty and misery, yet the people in Brazil chose to continue to be farmed like animals by the Worker’s Party (PT) leadership and their friends and relatives.
In Brazil, endemic corruption is not enough to scare voters away from the governing elite who destroyed the ‘Brazil of the Future’ and that is now struggling to explain how one of the richest countries of the Americas is in economic recession, riding a public looting wave that threatens to plunder the country into a dark hole and a real estate bubble that is fueled by massive money laundering schemes that are visible even in the smallest cities around the country.
Theft, crime and corruption run free in Brazil today as they did last week, and no one gives a darn.
The political elite in Brazil understands that the majority of the people are happy with handouts and minimum salaries, as if it were normal for the working class to earn less than the rest while doing the same or more work.
The so-called Brazil without Extreme Poverty Plan, which is presented by socialists and ignorant academics as a model for development is nothing else than a sentence for millions of people to remain poor. It is a judgement approved by the elite to keep people living in misery, but just a little bit better, so they can buy their flat screens and smart phones; as if that is a sign of prosperity.
To the political class and academia, welfare programs such as “Bolsa Família” is an example of how the government establishes “social protection with employment and income generation policies, and brings together the concepts of social protection and social promotion.” (1)
In Brazil, working hard is already seen as unnecessary, because there is someone from the government who is always ready to provide and handout. Here, progress is not measured according to how productive people are, but how much consumption stems from the public bribery system. For every R$1 handed out to the welfare parasite class through ‘Bolsa Familha’, says Dr. Fabiana C. Saddi, produces a return of R$1.78 in the country’s GDP.
Despite the facts that GDP per capita and total GDP have increased in the last 5 years, economic growth has plummeted from 7.5% to 1% or less in 2013. (2)
Last September, fiscal deficits amounted over USD 7.9 billion, up from USD 2.8 billion in September last year. Meanwhile, trade balance fell to USD 900 million in September, down from USD 2.0 billion in the same month in 2013. Inflation is at its highest in the last three years accumulated at 6.4%, according to official government data. This number is higher than the 4.5% reported a couple of years ago.
Brazil’s Central Bank has revised down its economic outlook sixteen times while the OECD cut its forecast of Brazilian growth to a mere 0.3 per cent for 2014 and 1.4 per cent in 2015. (3)
Anyone would think that the current economic situation together with the high levels of corruption in the country would be enough for people to demand change. But here, rampant corruption and misery are not enough.
As reported by Forbes last year, the cost of the massive corruption schemes in Brazil can easily amount to USD 53 billion in 2013 alone. From huge cash-for-votes schemes that moved around R$100 million, to the billions of Reais that were paid for no bid contracts with the State’s oil giant Petrobras, government officials and their cronies filled their pockets with public monies that were diverted to the hands of political contributors. (4)
According to the the Federation of Industries of São Paulo State, the average annual cost of corruption in Brazil stands at 1.38% to 2.3% of GDP. back in 2012, Brazil’s GDP was about USD 2.253 trillion, so please do the math.
While all this money is looted through corruption, the education, health and infrastructure systems continue to crumble as fast as Brazil’s economic outlook. Even someone in agreement with government policies would understand that the amount of public money diverted to the private bank accounts could have been used to ‘help the poor’ instead of being given to the political parasites. On the other hand, this is the way human farming works. For that reason, hospitals, roads, public sewer systems, and public safety will have to wait, especially with the Olympic Games coming in 2016.
“The reality of political power is very simple: bad farmers own crops and livestock – good farmers own human beings,” explains Philosopher Stefan Molyneux. When presenting his argument about how the political classes and the ruling elite manage to control the people, he uses a very effective metaphor. “By far the most effective way to do this – own humans and run a tax farm – is to take from other people, just as a farmer takes milk and meat from cows.”
Human ownership began way before slavery came about, explains Molyneux. “Slavery was an improvement to be sure, but it limited the growth of the ruling class because it could not solve the problem of motivation. Turns out, if you treat people like a machine, they end up with the motivation of a machine, which is to break two days after the warranty ends”.[quote style=”1″]The feudal approach improved on the direct slave-owning model by granting the human livestock (“serfs”) nominal ownership over land, while taking a portion of their productivity through taxes, military conscription, user fees for grinding grain and so on. So instead of owning folks directly, we just let them sweat themselves into puddles on their little ancestral plots, then took whatever we wanted from the proceeds — all the while telling them, of course, that God Himself appointed us as masters over them, and that their highest virtue was meek subservience to their anointed masters, blah blah.
Again, you might be thinking that, historically, God seems to have had a very soft spot for the most violent, entitled and warlike of His flock – and if meek submission was a virtue, why was it not practiced by the rulers, and so on, but don’t worry; you need to just put these entirely natural thoughts right out of your head, because once the people become enslaved, basic reasoning just short-circuits in their tiny minds, so that they do not see the cramped horrors of their little lives.[/quote]
Molyneux, compares the current economic system to a large farm, where people are milked, or as I like to say, sucked dry of the fruit of their labor.[quote style=”1″]Now, a successful politician can easily gather enough wealth to last several generations – or forever if handled wisely – in just a few terms. This has allowed for the development of the illusion that the tax livestock control something we call “democracy.” Because we can steal so much wealth in such a short amount of time, the ruling classes have agreed to rotate in and out of power, in order to maintain the illusion that there is no ruling class.
This rotation is essential to maintaining the optimism of the livestock by giving them the belief – almost always false – that they too can join the ruling class. This means that the ruling class is no longer directly exclusive, but rather somewhat permeable, at least at the fringes. (The modern democratic system has the advantage of transferring literally trillions of dollars from the workers to the rulers – a plunder unprecedented in human history.[/quote]
As we have seen in recent history, Democratic governments are the perfect tool for the transfer of wealth from the working class to the unproductive classes (political elite and welfare dependent people). This reality is clearer in Brazil than in any other place. In this country, politicians steal from one group to give to another, but not without taking a cut for themselves. This system is beautifully explained in Molyneux’s audiobook “The Handbook of Human Ownership: A Manual for New Tax Farmers”.[quote style=”1″]A key foundation of livestock management is bribery, which has an obvious benefit – and a subtle one. The obvious benefit is that, say, artists and intellectuals who receive government money will never be fundamentally critical of government taxes and redistribution, for reasons too obvious to mention here.
The more subtle benefit is that when you create an entire class of people dependent on government handouts, you divide the livestock into warring factions. Those whose money is being stolen have a strong incentive to reduce State theft, while those who receive stolen money have a strong incentive to increase State theft. It is absolutely, absolutely essential that you create and maintain conditions which foster slave on slave aggression.
If rulers smack down the slaves directly, the livestock immediately become aware of their enslavement, which reintroduces the motivation problem. Efficient human masters thus ensure that the slaves attack each other – the benefits of this are almost too numerous to count, but a few will be mentioned below. Human beings, as interdependent tribal mammals, have evolved to be terrified of horizontal social attack, ostracism and rejection. This is a core emotional vulnerability which can never be eliminated, and will always serve you well.[/quote]
Before the election of 2014, it seemed that Brazilians were sick and tired of corruption in politics and government. But after the election results, it seems that what is sick is the Brazilian society itself. The Handbook of Human Ownership (5) and Human Farming itself seem to be followed to the smallest detail in Brazil. People here are just happy to be farmed.
