    The world has never been under a greater force of re-structuring human society than today.

    The Viking raids still have discernible historical consequences..... Attila the Hun.... Ghengis Khan, Alexander the Great, the Roman Empire.... all historically significant....

    But today we're doing systematic "globalization" and there's some stuff we're just not being kept aware of, in the interest of a better world managed better by our forward thinking elites.

    Here's a bit about Brazil.

    Brazil is the refugee destination for a lot of folks fleeing social paradise Venezuela.... "overwhelmed" northern border. The Chinese investment into Brazil also comes with hughs... hundreds of thousands... numbers of Chinese immigrants.

    Used to be the Chiang Kai Shek Chinese with influential business communities all over the world. Now it's Xi's "revolutionary business guards", the efficient worker bees with the total compliance mindset who will work for the National Business Revolution.

    Gotta respect those Chinese. Confucius say "He who works will eat best".

    Displacing unskilled and relaxed Brazilians from jobs en mass in the nation that can rival the US in Ag business has led to a sort of crisis.... a hunger crisis in the land of Beef and Molasses.

    good as a bet, stupid as a joke.

    Not that British Bankers are really the root cause of anything, but be sure they sure have some tight lips on the teats of every good cause you could believe in or work for or contribute to.

    Second-hand news, from Brazil.

    People in the great Beef export leader are eating fake beef now. You know..... the engineered Petri-dish stuff like I used to grow in tissue culture for immunological and cancer research.

    See, ya get some live cells from a cow and incubate them in growth media. In a couple of days the plate is covered with the stuff. You harvest it as a sheet.... who knows do you even need to wash it///????.....and ship it to the hamburger joint where it's peeled off and slammed on the grill for a couple of minutes.

    None of this skinning the cows, removing the bones and guts and making Jell-O from the hoofs. No shipping live animals, no slaughter house, no freezer.

    Locals are suspicious.

    They are dying somehow, and the hospitals are closed for some reason. But there's these new businesses outsida town owned by the Chinese, and there's a lot of restricted neighborhoods all over... gated or patrolled.... with "Chinese Only" signs and "NO Brazillians allowed" signs. natives are being arrested for waling on the wrong side of the street. It's pure racism, folks. Unabashed, unshamed, proud racism.

    Locals are starting to notice.... the Chinese get health care they can't find at any price.....

    The Brazillians are being Eugenicised outta their country, and it's being handed over to the Chinese.

    The New Beef is being suspected of being the Soilit Green of our generation, while Eugenics is the Settled Science sayin' it's all good.

    This is "State Capitalism". China's runaway success with it is gonna make allies of Russia and Us.

    Critical thinking skills..... update....

    Pretty damn sure the Fords and Rockefellers can smile like Trump when doing deals with the Chinese, Russians or any of the 180 or so countries in the world.

    Here in the United States..... the rebel colonies to you, mate....we once cooked up a new idea of how to do business without the guvmint bein' the dealmaker. The idea, roughly, in America, is that we once.... and some still think we still do....have a form of business that is not directly run by the guvmint.

    Sure we had the Robber Barons and once tried to regulate competition and had a bureaucracy that made the Fords and Rockefellers mad enough to go build the factories in Germany so they could still monopolize world markets. And your Royals were good to go with the plan, too. Dunno how The City of London gets along without the patronage of Parliament, but really, if you're nuisance enough to catch attention used to be they'd send you Australia. I still don't get why Australians are willing "Subjects" of the Crown.

    But communist governments generally.... notably.....Russia, China, Cuba... have been experiments in State Capitalism, meaning the little honchos owned it all and paid pretty poor wages and mismanaged everything generally, until the last thirty to fifty years when we started letting our big monopolists go there to build all kinds of factories so they could pay workers less, too.

    that's why, generally, I describe socialism and communism as mere rhetorical displays for the ignorant masses who have proven themselves easily misdirected...... used and abused and crapped on all through history. And I note, it seems "religion" never was quite so effective an opiate for the people as socialist utopian dreams have been.

    I actually never did watch it.... yet..... but it was part of the cultural context in college whenever the Russian Lit class strayed into "Mbii" territory..... sorry I don't know how to switch to the Cyrillic alphabet in here..... The book "We" was published in the west though written in Russia and is considered the first of the genre of ultimate statism horrors. Eugene Zamyatin the author.

    No remake that I've heard of.....I looked at some videos just now for a few minutes.... I think the old film cast in dark tones is perfect for the theme.....

    This book has had more influence with me than the Book of Mormon or the The Bible.....

    Your little creative writing post about people eating fake beef and dying sounds like Soylent Green part 2.

    My news source for this stuff from down in Brazil is from perhaps my wife's most significant brother and his wife. One of my closer cousins and friends also married a Brazilian. I should perhaps ask him about it, too. Some many years ago he (my brother in law)went to Brazil and was general handiman for a Catholic orphanage run by an bunch of nuns. He was their fixit for plumbing, electrical, yard work etc, but he also became something of their camp leader taking charge of fun activities, since that is what life always boils down to for him. He fell in love with a really, really nice girl who was more or less their wonderful choir person. She still has frequent contact with her family down there. Goes there every few years and whatnot, sometimes her sister comes up here to stay for six months or a year.

    When my kids were needing tending and my wife and I both working, she was our chief babysitter, and my girls are like part of the family, going to the Catholic school even sometimes but for sure the sunday worship. The Catholic cousins and the Born Again grandpa, and the Mormon aunt. I once asked my kids what the difference in these religions was.

    I was told matter of factly that the Catholic Church was God's Church, the Born Agains were Jesus's Church, and the Mormons were Heavenly Father's Church. I found that to be the most succinct and absolutely factual essay on religions I've ever heard.

    Sure, the accounts I hear about Brazil are street views, but apparently this is a huge issue of the day down there. People are really starving, and the tissue culture product is really the main meat the poor can afford, almost.... and there is massive unrest about it. People really think they're being fed crap. People are buying dog food and living off that because it's better than the cultured meat. They are really thinking they are being displaced by the Chinese in the workforce. Huge areas near the new industrial outfits are really posted "No Brazilians Allowed" and people are being arrested for going into these areas if they are not Chinese.... There is no "cultural assimilation" going on, it's whole-hog transplant of Chinese business and workers. The word on the street is "Millions of 'Em". They have their own malls and hospitals even, and yes indeed there are Brazilian hospitals shut down and lots of people not knowing where to go to get care. Kinda like our "Mexican" workforce getting the front of the line at our emergency care while our Veterans are waiting weeks to see their doctors with "news" about some Vets killing themselves in the Vet Admin parking lot because they can't get their pain meds. Pretty wild stories, likely..... but that is what things are looking like on the Street, according to some....

    My Chinese sister in law, whose father was in the Chinese Navy when he was still working, is pretty impressive. Smart as anyone I know, and works harder than anyone I know. Is a hospital administrator/doctor. I tell ya, people who roll outta bed and go to work like that are everybody's dream workforce.

    We had a market test for the cultured meat up here a few years ago and it quickly became a very unpopular thing. If we use it here, our fast food chains are not advertising the source of the "hamburger", but I make no guarantees that it is not some fraction of our market already.... don't start stopping to take a close look at your food.....you might get suspicious, too.
