Colonisation: 1600s & 2000s style
by W. Finnerty. Sun May 07, 2006 16:40
There is at least one report in circulation on the Internet which suggests that when people living in the 1600s wanted to make Lord Oliver Cromwell look good, all they had to do was compare him to Sir Frederick Hamilton (1590-1647).
A brief outline account - using his own words - of how colonist Sir Frederick Hamilton treated people in Ireland during the 1600s can be found at the following page location:  
A short outline of the origins of global colonisation in 1500s Europe can also be found at the above address.
When the term "global colonisation" is reduced to "globalisation" (in its present form and meaning), it may look to some as though human history is repeating itself in one of its ugliest, most destructive, and wasteful of ways? 
Is the physical abuse of people in Iraq of the 2000s (for example) that much different to Ireland of the 1600s?
Have the leaders of the master-criminal clique of western tyrants already successfully hijacked the law for themselves on an international basis, for the purpose of implementing and supporting their tyranny globally; and, if so, will the democratically minded people of the world ever be able to take the law back off them - now that this particular hijack appears to be so far advanced?

The above text has been copied from the following Indymedia (Ireland) location:  
Also, and for what it's worth (?), an effort has been made to make a group of well known leaders (and some observers) aware of the difficulties referred to above. If interested, please see the e-mail reproduced at the following address for details:  
Some final thoughts: 
1) Could it be that much of the bullying and abuse (physical and psychological) in daily life is trickling down from a so called "higher" social source? - and from people who are in a position to set a good example, but who, at the present time, are doing the exact opposite? 
2) Why are public officials being allowed to keep on abusing their powers and their positions in the ways that they are: when there are numerous laws already in place to prevent them from doing so?
3)    "So may the outward shows be least themselves:
        The world is still deceived with ornament.
        In law, what plea so tainted and corrupt,
        But, being seasoned with a gracious voice,
        Obscures the show of evil? 
        In religion, ..."
              Merchant of Venice (1597 A.D.)
