Heroin and Cornflakes

“Governments can be understood as a series of decision points, with some people in those points vulnerable to very large bribes. Decisions could be bought and sold like heroin, making democracy an illusion.” – 2009 State of the Future

Heroin and Cornflakes was born out of the absurdity of a world ruled by profit.  A profit that is allowed to exploit our children without moral restraint. A profit that laces products with candy and sugar in order for our children to become addicted.  A profit that allows the world’s children to starve whilst its beneficiaries accumulate vast wealth. These beneficiaries include politicians and statesmen who circumvent all means of equal distribution of wealth and resources.

Heroin and Cornflakes aims to highlight these discrepancies and crisis through the written word. 

Most people live, whether physically, intellectually, or morally, in a very restricted circle of their being. They make use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness, and of their soul’s resources in general, much like a man who, out of his whole bodily organism, should get into the habit of using and moving only his little finger. Great emergencies and crises show us how much greater our vital resources are than we had supposed. William James

Is there an emergency?

The UN food agency says one in six human beings, or one-sixth of the global population, are suffering from hunger and do not have access to enough food.  A record 1 billion people are undernourished around the world.

The International Labour Organisation (ILO) has estimated that 250 million children between the ages of five and fourteen work in developing countries, at least 120 million of these on a full time basis.

However some folk don`t go hungry and their children don`t lack education :

    Combat rising damp in your home – you can fix a damp house by employing one of a variety of solutions. Rising damp occurs when moisture creeps slowly from the soil under a structure and up into the base http://consol.comlu.com of the walls. Most commonly, this occurs in buildings made of brick or stone, as the moisture follows the capillary nature of the masonry. This moisture carries dissolved salts, nitrates, phosphates and other naturally occurring elements. Damage occurs as the salts expand and contract within the wall through on-going seasonal wetting and drying cycles. Signs that your home may have a rising damp problem include stained walls, blistering or flaky paint on walls, curling or stained wallpaper, salt residue, disintegrating mortar, and rotting timber skirting boards or door frames but no mould.

    The actions required to earn the Navy Cross have to be prominent and highly striking as to render the person a “cut above” all others in the same pay grade.
