Update on ‘The Panama Papers’ carry on …..

The anonymous source responsible for the surfacing of the Panama Papers has issued a statement on the website of the journalism consortium that has been sorting through the document trove. The unidentified whistleblower, writing under the name John Doe, rules out some of the speculation about his or her identity—”I do not work for any…

Could we REALLY be seeing the end of the ‘Old boy network’ and the uber rich who stash their money in offshore accounts and phantom businesses to avoid paying taxes that contribute to the overall wellbeing of their country …..hmmmm if I didn’t pay my taxes I’d be prosecuted …..hmmmmm and I believe there’s a name for claiming money against phantom accounts and business …it’s called FRAUD and usually brings with it a jail sentence.

Is it right that there is one rule for one and not another?

THESE are people that hold a LOT of wealth and power around the world ….I would imagine there’s a number of folk on the list who are instrumental in MAKING the laws that the rest of us MUST follow.

Hmmmmm I would like to see an honest owning up and apology by the folks involved in this ….and like would happen with the rest of us …to pay outstanding bills ….we need rules and laws BUT the same should apply to everyone shouldn’t it?

They can’t get away with this can they?

Hmmmmm we surely do live in interesting times

  1. The “Panama Papers” caper was never intended to bring anyone to justice for malfeasance, it was, and remains, nothing more than a propaganda op. by those ubiquitous US alphabet agencies to cast aspersions upon leaders, or members, of non-aligned nations, the main target being Russia and Putin. You may have noticed that, oh, how surprising, no one of interest from “America” was exposed in those “papers” – and isn’t that a stunning revelation since the US is the most in every possible way corrupt nation on the planet.

    To address your close, “they” have always gotten away with it. It’s what they are. They are the special class that lords it over the rest of the world. Now there could be a slight problem with their overweaning greed and their sociopathic system, since it would seem “they” are exceeding the limits to greed, and yes, everything has limits in a closed system, and they may be in the process of destroying the very essence of their sacro-sanct (and total bullshit) capitalism. Whether the so-called “economy” is going to collapse, or the world is going to wake up and bring these mass murderers down, I am betting some of both. There are so many things going wrong with the machine and so many parts breaking down with no one wise enough or powerful enough to actually fix anything… the outcome is predictable: global social chaos. Not necessarily quickly, or even soon, but inevitable, give or take… 400 years for a complete collapse of civilization? That’s my guess.

    … and yes we do live in interesting times… as man has always lived. Same s**t, bigger pile. Which reminds me, I have to post a short story… 🙂

  2. Thanks for your thoughtful comment ShaTara ……you see I’m not convinced it will be a collapse of civilisation ….well …maybe a collapse of civilisation as we know it now but I think we’re at the start of some kind of shift ….a change in the way things are at the moment yes …but the youngsters ARE global in their outlook …..in Aftica, China, India, Malaysia , Europe, even Russia and the US …you’ve only got to look at many of their blogs …..and look at how certain things can go viral …..it was the youngsters you posted about the Arab Spring AND that made the European governments acknowledge and actually DO something about the migrant crisis ……hmmmmmm we’ll see I guess ….like you say tho …it’s probably a ‘process’ that will take many years ….interesting the things that are happening right now tho:)

  3. In my opinion some will be punished, yes, those on the west. But not Putin for example. When Panama papers came out, in Russia he was not mentioned at all for few days.. it does nothing to those people that are absolutic.. Also do not fall into the bias of picking short amount of time, these things happen and they will happen in the future because there are many states with low taxes, the same goes for terrorism it is not that there was no terrorism before refugee crisis, it is just that people now connect these two events.

    1. Yes ….agree with you that we are getting better at firstly …getting to know about these stories around the world ….seeing the ‘bigger picture’ …..PLUS making the connections re events or even like this …just communicating with each other across the globe via the Internet.
      I am hopeful for your generation and those coming behind Dragullar …..I really believe there is a shift occurring with young people ……..they seem to be seeing beyond ‘boundaries’ of nationality, race, relgion ….the world is shrinking through information technology …I believe your generation or maybe the one behind will TRULY see themselves as global citizens …..and those behaving in a corrupt manner will find it increasingly impossible to hide their misdeeds:)
