1.10.70 Which Tribal groups may qualify for investment

< Previous Issue Higher Issue All Issues Next Issue >

What if you were put in charge of the World tomorrow? How would you run the planet?

If you have arrived onto this page from an external link or search engine, the material below will make no sense whatsoever unless you know why www.12-12-12.org was written. A very brief summary can be read by clicking here

This globally popular educational and research website lists every national and international problem in the world in a rather unusual and entertaining way, so remember to bookmark www.12-12-12.org in your favourites folder! For the record: Andronicos the author does not profess to greatness in any shape or form. Lets continue.................

Andronicos "The Great" as Director of the Human Race and Manager Planet Earth commands and Andronicos "The Cynic" responds as follows.........


I direct that not one cent from the War Bond be invested in any corporation that will do business with any Tribe that does not meet my qualification criteria. This criteria includes the following (for now):

  • The tribe or group of Sovereign tribes must be the poorest on the planet.
  • The % of GDP and collected taxation spent on war toys (aka ‘defence’) be less than 1% per annum, unless predefined "emergencies" occur.
  • No nuclear weapons. (refer to 5.20)
  • Relative Democratic rule.
  • Agreement to 3rd party election monitoring.
  • Relative freedom of speech, The Press, Religion.
  • Human Rights accepted as intrinsic to criminal and civil judicial system.
  • Disputed land or power sharing issues to be resolved under UN supervision first.
  • Inter tribal peace treaties to be signed first and no terrorism tolerated.
  • Unconditional immediate extradition of allegedly corrupt War Bond employees, suppliers, or civil servants for trial: at ANY time.
  • Women’s rights to jobs, equal pay and the enforcement of anti women mutilation laws, abduction and slavery.
  • Taxation for War Bond corporations and their assets to be fixed.

I hope the penny is beginning to drop if you are reading this book for the first time. If someone with billions and billions of dollars offered several commercial ventures to help poor tribes stand on their own two feet for the first time, he will have the right to ask for certain security for his employer and their shareholders. But this time, instead of some 35 year old twit with a PhD from the IMF demanding some poor country doubles its bread price, halves its pensions and closes a quarter of its hospitals in return for a last resort bridging loan to avoid riots, no such bailout loan will be needed. Similarly, the 12-12-12 initiative is not another charitable hand out to help hide the real symptoms - it's the cure to many of the worst problems facing the human race.

The above list which initially is just 12 undefined subject headings without figures attached are neither draconian nor unreasonable. Ironically, each tribe will save money, purely from defence savings.

Of course, if any non wealthy Sovereign tribe, under the misguided belief that their national identity is being eroded wishes to carry on as now, I will merely wait until opposition parties explain to the local population why the standard of living of their neighbours has quadrupled, be voted in office and get them to sign up to the War Bond selection criteria. And while they're on a roll, perhaps investigate their corrupt predecessors.

Finally, speaking with personal experience, it's very hard to plead poverty to a banker when a Lamborghini Diablo is parked outside your front door (even though the cash flow problem is short term and the sports car is in theory costing nothing). I trust the Sovereign states that possess nuclear weapons are not offended by not being selected as a priority for the time being: It's the psychological impact to War Bond investors, not the cost of nuclear weapons vs conventional ones that’s the concern.
