Humanity Minus

There’s a complex web of private corporations, banks, NGOs and government - acting on their own behalf.
 
Yet there’s a rising tide of conscious consumers challenging the status quo. 
 
If you’re concerned where your money goes… when you want to know that people and the planet are treated fairly… that profits are put to good use and not used to fund terror, cruelty and injustice, at last you have a choice.




 
It's serving the purpose to obscure the facts about money creation. After all, if the public realised the situation there would be revolt, to quote US President Andrew Jackson, 1835. 

"You are a den of vipers. I intend to rout you out and by the Eternal God I will rout you out.
        If the people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system, there
  would be a revolution before morning."
              United States President Andrew Jackson

Money is not controlled by elected governments or countries but by private corporations. 

1. Corporations exist to make profit and exercise control, for example
- in the banking industry (which are private corporations) to profit through charging interest (usury) and fees
- corporations in the arms industry conduct "marketing":  security threats exacerbated by funding all sides
- in the pharmaceutical industry to sell whatever people will buy
- in the agricultural industry to control the food supply
- in the media industry to sell advertising 
2. Banks lend money to government to pay for defence
3. Governments pay for arms provided by corporations, funded from taxes
4. Corporations pay governments and global NGOs like the WHO, UN, the IMF and any of the other international NGOs (http://www.who.int/civilsociety/ngo_pages_un/en). There are more than 10m NGOs. These NGOs are unelected, often funded and controlled by corporations
5. NGOs receive money from governments, funded from our taxes 
6. NGOs pay for solutions provided by corporations
7. Countries who receive grant aid from NGOs are forced to take on debt and pay interest to the banks
8. The debt is used to pay private corporations to carry out work approved by NGOs
9. Countries who cannot pay their debts have to hand over national assets including water, oil, minerals and metals, agricultural production, land
10. The people pay taxes to fund all of this
11. The interest on the monies loaned to governments by the banks (fabricated from nothing) can never be paid back in full
12. The interest added to the original debts accumulates with interest being paid on the interest
13. So countries and people are indebted to the banks which are private corporations
14. There are only 5 countries which have taken back control of their banks:
Hungary
Iceland
Pakistan
Russia
Sweden
(Cuba, Iran, Libya, North Korea and the Sudan were independent but are no longer).
15. He who pays the piper calls the tune. 

"Give me control over a nation's currency, and I care not who makes its laws” – Baron M.A. Rothschild

Finally you can choose Humanity Plus companies who are rising to the challenge of viable alternatives. 

You can choose where your money goes. To oil and arms or to privately owned family businesses. Whose profits are not used to deceive and foster fear in an endless cycle of debt and ill health. 

Here's to putting the power of your pocket towards a Humanity Plus Life.

Here at HumanityPlus, we don't focus on the bad in the world. We know that what we focus on grows - so we enable and amplify positive impacts. 

There's one thing we know, though: Humanity Plus businesses are not financially linked to companies who are bad for people, planet and who put thier profits to ill use.

So many businesses are gobbled up by the big corporations, sometimes it's hard to know who is owned by who. That's why we seek to actively promote privately owned businesses - alongside bigger companies who are checked-out to NOT be part of one of the bad corporations' portfolio, and who don't have major shareholdings in any of the bad guys.  

Just in case you're wondering what all the fuss is about, though, you can check out what is reported and why increasing numbers of other consumers don't want to let a penny of our hard earned money end up in the pockets of the bad guys. For example, the Huffington Post recently reported on the 12 least ethical companies in the world, which they named as: 

#1 Monsanto Co
#2 Halliburton Company
#3 Chevron Corp
#4 Freeport McMoRan Copper & Gold
#5 Philip Morris International Inc
#6 Occidental Petroleum Corporation
#7 Ryanair Holdings plc
#8 Syngenta AG
#9 Grupo Mexico SA de CV
#10 Total SA
#11 Mediaset SpA
#12 Barrick Gold Corporation


For a different view,  Ethical Consumer place Nestlé as the least ethical company of the last 25 years.

The Swiss food company achieved' 15% of their readership's vote, finishing just slightly worse than Monsanto (14%) and tax avoider Amazon (12%). Here at Humanity Plus we don't believe that avoiding taxes is as heinous as persecuting and exploiting people, harming animals and the environment...

Nestlé is currently subject to the longest ever running consumer boycott. For over 20 years Baby Milk Action has called a boycott of the company for its irresponsible marketing of baby milk formula, which infringes the International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes. In recent years the company has also been criticised for its use of child labour and palm oil, and for not labelling GM ingredients. 

Ethical Consumer's Tim Hunt, who helped conduct the survey, said, “This is a really interesting result. It shows that people still feel strongly about Nestlé even after so many years and despite it trying to greenwash its image by using Fairtrade chocolate in some of its products.”

He added: “From baby milk to Kit Kats and across all its product lines, Nestlé's brands score just 1 out of 14 on our ethical rankings tables.” 

The top ten least ethical companies were:


The Good Shopping Guide lists these as their 10 least ethical:
  1. Allianz
  2. Barclays
  3. Bayer AG
  4. Heal's
  5. HSBC/First Direct
  6. Johnson & Johnson
  7. Mars
  8. Natwest/Royal Bank of Scotland
  9. Pfizer
  10. Scottish Power


Let's not focus on the worst - let's find the best and help them grow.
