ABS! ABOLISH BANK SECRECY to eradicate Global Corruption! Sticky

Mar
12

 

OPEN SUGGESTION to all NGOs, Foundations and Movements:
include the claim to "Abolish Bank $ecrecy! - AB$!" in your statutes and ALL communications and actions to increase social awareness and put more pressure on the authorities.

...because:
BANK SECRECY and Tax Havens finance, allow, maintain and stimulate Global Corruption: the single one cause of all serious world problems: war, terrorism, organized crime, violation of human rights, poverty, destruction of the planet and society.

(we DO have enough examples to be sure of that now, don't we?)

Independence of Scotland, start of the End of Bank Secrecy?

Sep
08

The independence of Scotland from the "United" Kingdom would not just be a great first step towards the dismantling of the absurd, outdated, obsolete British "Empire" (in fact England, plus their ridiculous amount of dominated or influenced territories).

More specifically it could mean the greatest possible first step towards the abolition of BANK SECRECY and TAX HAVENS, because that is what the British crown essentially "Unites": the biggest cluster of Black Money machines of the world. The same Black Money that and finances wars, sustains dictators and stimulates political and corporate corruption, organized crime, violation of human rights, genocide and ecocide.
On a global scale, this British black money monopoly makes even territorial, historical or cultural issues actually insignificant.

As the Tax Justice Network puts it:

the United Kingdom with its satellite secrecy jurisdictions would be ranked first in the Fincancial Secrecy Index (FSI) by a large margin with a FSI score of 2162 or 3170, respectively (compared to 1765 for Switzerland). Note that this list excludes many British Commonwealth Realms where the Queen remains their head of state.

They forget to mention that many former British colonies*, surprisingly, have ended up being Tax Havens as well.
It is estimated that 30% of global wealth is hidden on Tax Havens. And it seems that half of that amount is under British total control or strong influence.<--break->

Countries with Bank Secrecy stimulate War, Corruption, Crime...

Feb
21

Simple, common logic:

  1. War, Corruption and Crime are basically financed by Black Money;
  2. Black Money is hidden on or retrieved from Secret Bank accounts;
  3. Countries with Bank Secrecy, like Switzerland and England, thus, allow and stimulate War, Corruption and Crime.

For a sustainable, liveable and egalitarian world society, business will greatly have to transform from greedy, profit-obsessed, centralized, destructive Corporations to user, worker and environment friendly, sustainable Cooperatives in wide networks.

Publicity: 100% VAT for healthier economics, ecology & society

May
21

 

In 2009 I already pubished this request on the petition site at http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/multiply-tax-on-publicity-2x-3x/

Here just a straight copy for the moment just in case. Unfortunately not much follow up by then, hope to improve that now. Main change of focus: not just 2 or 3 times more VAT on publicity of the companies that are on the stock-exchange, but straight out 100% VAT so the corporations contribute (back) to society just as much as they are eager  to invest in forcing their products, services or brands upon the rest of the world. Additionally this would compensate (very slightly) the enormous amount of money they don't pay, due to semi-legal tax evasion trough  Tax Havens.

Nature first

Nature First!
Unavoidably. Nature can exist without man, but man can cannot exist without nature. This is obvious, of course, essentially self-explaining and does not need any further discussion, except for its actual implementation, which is another chapter though.

Awareness and Consciouness - another system is necessary and possible.

Mar
11

Each day more people become aware that 'the system' is wrong, fraudulent and corrupt. Specifally in the last years it is becoming ever more clear that the world is dominated by a small ruling elite of 1% that consists of bankers, speculators, corporate executives, politicians and other criminals without any scrupules, who only worry about their own wealth and staying in power in fraudulent ways. They don't care about leading both society as the planet to destruction in a dead end street, while attempting to cancel justice and transparency for the other 99%.

Fortunately on a global scale there is a constantly increasing awareness, that it is urgent to do something to avoid Old World Order leading us to total collapse of society or the planet or both, and it is expressed in many ways by Non Governmental Organizations, Protests, Actvism and a growing number of other movements, that all focus on ways to compensate, improve or directly change the existing social system (in fact, it is social at all, just economic and purely profit-driven).

This social awareness only needs to reach it's critical mass for a true (r)evolutionairy change to happen in the currently dominating, but rotten, global system - exagerated profit for just a few, thanks to overexploiting human and natural resources.

Europe is not a coin

Mar

Europa is geen munt!

Europe is not a coin. Europe is history, culture, science, philosophy, languages, diversity and heterogeneous peoples. These natural, social values are what characterizes Europe and can bind it. Definitely not a artificial, imposed values like a coin or the economy, banking interest rates, stock quotes or Corporations' need-and-greed for easy & homogeneous mass-markets for manipulation, selling and control. Within this limited, retarded, short-sighted perspective by 'the Markets' the Euro might give te impression to be a failure. However, the only real and valid standard to measure Europe's coin and success should be the easiness for social exchange, that it provides to this vast variety of people and cultures.
