The big machine keeps turning and those making the massive profits and the world leaders need this to carry on to keep them in the lives they are accustomed to and desire.
5 years ago a great deal of the wood pulp imported into the UK came from Russia. This is/was harvested from the middle of nowhere, using cheap Korean labour “holed up in Korean Labour camps” established throughout the USSR. Some of these Korean
FORCED workers are made to stay working in these camps for periods of 3 years (unskilled labour) plant operators/drivers/tree fellers (skilled workers) can be made to work for 5 to 10 years in the USSR. Only getting a brief holiday back in a Korea. The camps are modelled on a typical Korean village with all the propaganda and ideology. When returning to Korea after their work detail, the workers are sent away to be re-educated (brainwashed) for six weeks.
This is indeed how the big machines/governments work. Exploiting everything and everyone.
