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 :
