this is the plan of 'stowage of the british slave ship 'brookes' under the regulated slave trade, act of 1788'.
feel free to click on the image and zoom in to observe the horrible conditions under which slaves were transported to america.
under the named act it could lawfully carry 454 slaves. before that in a 1782 trip it carried 609 slaves(351 men, 127 women, 90 boys, and 41 girls) in the same space.
this continued even as washington, jefferson, adams, franklin, and others(some of them slave owners) were declaring in 1776, "we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness".
in 1789, constitution of the united states with similar high sounding phrases went in to effect. slave trade and slave labor continued.
in other words, usa was founded by hypocrites with hypocrisy as its guiding principle. same can be said of other western states.
usa has not changed, 220+ years on.
usa is invading, occupying, imposing, interfering, in other countries. under mass murdering leaders like obama, bush, clintons, and others, it is looting other people's resources in every possible way to satisfy and keep intact the empty lifestyles and parasitic welfare needs of its increasingly lazy, ignorant, and barbaric, population. to do so they are callously drone killing the innocents, torturing the unarmed, violently suppressing dissent & resistance in occupied countries, and committing all sorts of other atrocities and human rights violations.
usa's brutish slavedog countries, like britain, follow in its wake feeding on mangled corpses of raped innocents.
in spite of all that horror, they shamelessly preach to us, sri lankans, about human rights, democracy, and reconciliation. they, through their tools in united nations and various ngos, try to punish people who by defeating an armed gang of murderers, called tamil tigers, ensured freedom to exercise basic human rights here.
west's real aim is probably establishment of a slavish government here that act in western interests rather than sri lankan interests.
whether they will succeed is a different question, i will deal with later in detail. for now, i will say they will not, if government here acts shrewdly and with courage. thanks god west is no longer as powerful as it once was.
the point i am making here is that nobody with any brains, in sri lanka or elsewhere, can be under any illusion that usa means what it says about rights, democracy, justice, etc..
when usa's bloody functionaries say those things, they are merely practicing their country's fundamental ingrained hypocrisy.
we, individual sri lankans, who are not slaves (unlike the filth who work in western funded ngos) should aggressively challenge those statements whenever we can. we can still do that. we are not in a slave ship but a free country. let us keep it that way, by exposing the hypocrisy of americans, and their slaves, local or foreign.
