A Matter of Theft

Fourth World Eye

by
Selling False Hope
If young people are our future, then stealing our young people is robbing our future; stealing our young people by leading them astray into false hope, in turn, robs them of their future. The false hope industry of humanitarian causes — invented by Wall Street-financed social entrepreneurs, and promoted by NGO charlatans and opportunists — is thus a matter of theft.The subjects of these humanitarian causes, however, involve serious considerations. Without the opportunity for our young people to assume their rightful responsibilities, humanity is doomed.

These responsibilities are not to be trifled with for pooh-bah prestige and monetary gain; they are matters of great spiritual import. When this theft is perpetrated by capital foundations on behalf of the aristocracy, they are slowly killing hope for humankind.
