29619, the above isn't even the complete memo...
Posted by zewari, Mon Apr-11-05 09:45 PM

Lawrence Summers initially accepted responsibility for the memo, then said it was "satirical", then blamed it on an aide- saying he didn't write any of it, just signed off on it.

the truth is that this really is the way corporate globalists think. look @ what happened to Mexico's border states post-Nafta. after the memo was leaked, Brazil's then-Secretary of the Environment Jose Lutzenburge wrote the following to Summers:

"Your reasoning is perfectly logical but totally insane... Your thoughts a concrete example of the unbelievable alienation, reductionist thinking, social ruthlessness and the arrogant ignorance of many conventional 'economists' concerning the nature of the world we live in... If the World Bank keeps you as vice president it will lose all credibility. To me it would confirm what I often said... the best thing that could happen would be for the Bank to disappear."

after Mr. Lutzenburger wrote this, he was fired from his position.

“Stand out firmly for Justice as witness before God, even against yourselves, against your kin and against your parents, against people who are rich or poor. Do not follow your inclinations or desires lest you deviate from Justice."
-Qur’an 4:135
