The Davos billionaire World Economic Forum club desires to merge public funds with the wealth of the privately owned business corporations that dominate the world. This is a very smart initiative that gives billionaires access to the nation states’ government funds.
The British Empire did the same with the privately owned East India Company, which had access to public funds, lucratively using taxpayer money to produce even more wealth to its owners. It became the most powerful company the world had known between 1600 and 1874, even when comparing it to Google or others today. As the company contributed to great trade in silk, spices and Eastern sought-after goods, it also took control of entire regions and profited from the slave trade. It controlled the opium trade and notoriously made the Chinese total drug addicts.
The East India Company is arguably the world’s best example of ruthless corporate violence. Among its most notorious bandits were William Jardine and James Matheson, the most successful opium traders in all of China. During the opium wars, the Western drug lords produced a system that led to the total humiliation and subjugation of China.
Watching the country collapse in drug abuse, China’s high commissioner, Lin Zexu, sent a desperate plea to Queen Victoria, asking her to explain to why her citizens had returned friendly trade with the notorious opium trade. He wrote, – but never received an answer:
“… How can foreigners return injury for the benefit they have received by sending this poison to harm their benefactors? They are so obsessed with material gain that they have no concern whatever for the harm they can cause to others. Have they no conscience? I have heard that you strictly prohibit opium in your own country, indicating unmistakably that you know how harmful opium is. You do not wish opium to harm your own country, but you choose to bring that harm to other countries such as China. Why?”
