Chart Of The Day: Global Youth Unemployment

Tyler Durden's picture


We have some bad news... for Africa: according to the latest data released by the International Labor Organization, your youth unemployment problem is almost as bad as that of Europe.

Maybe more to the point, just what is it about those bracing Mediterranean sea breezes (not to mention mandated Eurozone "political capital" and relentlessly liberating - of one's job - globallization) that makes the young people in the adjoining countries choose to do pretty much anything but work?

if Obama would just insist these countries initiate a $15 minimum wage, just think how much better they'd all be.

I know many ZHer's have experienced 2nd and 3rd worlds.   I'm always humbled by the people who get up every morning and ask themselves the question "what am I going to do today to make a little itty bit of money to put a little food on my little table tonight."   The answer is always the same.  "ANYTHING!!"

Then, I look at my very own family, friends, kids of friends, etc.   Last week I hear a 20 year old game junkie say "there's no way I would stock shelves at Bed Bath and Beyond for $8.50/hour".    So, sit at home and play games he does.  Completely oblivious to the reality that 4 billion people in the world would work an entire day for $8.50 if they had the opportunity.

It's painful to watch.

I note that Peru and Paraguay have low rates of youth unemployment...  Might those be interesting destinations for people thinking of a "Plan B" move?  Hmm.

In an extraordinary series of emails (for a Bearing Guy anyway), I recently received some excellent correspondence from a family VERY interested in moving to Paraguay, yes, Paraguay,  Turns out that economy is booming!

Paraguay has an interesting history. Back in the 19th century they were developing fast into a relatively industrialised nation. The British empire wouldn't have it, so they used Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina as proxy to destroy Paraguay.

I have never visited Paraguay and would be interested in finding out if the locals have a different cultural values from Brazilians and Argentines, which I know to be oligarchical-collectivists.

The family I have been in touch with as well as a Paraguyan-American I know here both say that to this day Paraguayans don't like Brazilians.

I was in Paraguay only once, and it was a long time ago (1985), I rather liked it (good food, nice people), but, wow did it ever feel remote...  That may now be a part of its charm, though it seems things are heating up (growing, building roads & infrastructure).

It seems that Paraguay is now a "beacon of freedom" (at least economically) in their region, which as you said, is falling into sloppy Socialism.

American Mind Control in Baghdad

Spooks use technology "proved" on one-million dead Africans

Copyright Joe Vialls, 29 May 2003

           During the late afternoon of 6 April 1994, a hail of cannon shells tore through the fuselage of a commercial airliner flying overhead central Rwanda. Several seconds later the blazing plane exploded on impact with the ground, killing President Habyarimana of Rwanda, President Ntaryamira of Burundi, and most of their senior government officials. In that fatal millisecond of time, the entire political command structure of central Africa was decapitated,  leaving the way open for “Operation Crimson Mist”,  the most obscene terminal mind control experiment ever mounted by the United States of America against a sovereign nation. That “Crimson Mist” has been used again recently on a smaller scale in Iraq, is now beyond doubt.

            As Habyarimana and his colleagues made their death dive, a small group of American men and women lounged around in a large hut at the edge of a discreet gravel airstrip a few miles from the Rwandan capital Kigali, temporary home for their three unmarked C-130 Hercules transport planes. All crewmembers carried forged credentials showing them as  “atmospheric researchers” employed by an authentic civilian American agency, but these were only for emergency identification if one of the aircraft was forced to make an unscheduled landing on unfriendly territory. For all practical security purposes, neither they nor their three large aircraft were even in Africa.

            When news of the presidential crash came in over the VHF radio, one of the Hercules planes was swiftly prepared for take off. The flight engineer checked the attachment of the RATO [Rocket Assisted Takeoff] packs, while the scientists made final adjustments to a large microwave dish mounted on the rear loading ramp of the aircraft. It was this strange and esoteric piece of equipment alone that would directly contribute to the deaths of more than one million African civilians during the hundred days that followed. Though completely silent in operation, the single microwave dish had more killing potential than a whole squadron of AC-130 Spectre gunships armed with fifty Gatling cannons.

            Though officially tagged an “experiment”, none of those present had any doubt that this was merely a cosmetic cover for the gruesome operational work ahead.  Each member had been carefully vetted and then vetted again by US Intelligence to ensure they had the “right stuff”, and were philosophically committed to two objectives. First was the evolving need to control or eliminate political dissent by remote means in the run up to the 21st Century, and second was the need to stem or reverse massive population increases across the world, which threatened to overwhelm existing natural resources, especially water and food. Intrinsically this required a willingness to commit mass murder, and everyone present had passed this critical test with flying colors.

            As the Hercules’ engines started with a roar, American agents in Kigali were working alongside local civil servants and members of the Rwandan security service, ramping up public suspicion about foul play in the presidential air crash. Urged on by corrupt officialdom, Hutu tribesmen started marching on Tutsi tribesmen and threw a few rocks at them. Innocent enough at the outset, although with a few nasty machete cuts here and there. But then the C-130 Hercules made a carefully-calculated pass directly over the advancing Hutu, and they suddenly went berserk.  Eyes glazed, the mood of the Hutu crowd went from simple anger to uncontrollable rage, and within minutes, hundreds of assorted Tutsi body parts were flying through the air.


           What the Hercules crew had just achieved has been an open secret since the late fifties, when researchers accidentally discovered that there is a precise “control” brain wave for literally everything we do, and for everything we feel. The problem back then was that each of these control brain waves [rage, fear, panic, lethargy, vomiting and so on] had to be transmitted with an accuracy taken out to three decimal places, or they simply did not work at all. But as the years rolled by, and with the advent of transistors and microprocessors, the operational application of precise control brain waves became practical reality.

            It is important to note here that the lethal trick repeated hundreds of times by the C-130 Hercules in Rwanda during April – July 1994,  was not “classic mind control” in the ultimate conspiratorial meaning of the term, i.e. where people claim to hear complicated messages inside their heads, or where it is feared that the NSA [or similar] intend to turn everyone into helpless Zombies by implanting electronic chips in their arms or necks. What the C-130 crew were actually engaged in was “electromagnetically augmenting” a preexisting state. Remember that the agents and security service personnel first had to point the Hutu tribesmen in the direction of the Tutsi, induce reasonable anger, and make sure they were appropriately armed. Only then could the C-130 go to work with the precise control brain wave of “rage”, augmenting and thus upgrading crowd behavior from that of angry demonstrators to uncontrollable genocidal maniacs. Although not “classic”, this was and is unquestionably mind control, for the simple reason that external means were being used to force an irresistible change in behavior.

            For those who really want to know how governments or agencies change public behavior on a whim, the explanation is not too complicated, though obtaining details of the classified control brain frequencies is all but impossible. Various academics have actually demonstrated some of these effects quasi-publicly over the years, which provides hard reality for skeptics.

             One of the leading lights in this field is Dr. Elizabeth Rauscher-Bise, who was a nuclear scientist and researcher at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and at Stanford Research Institute, Professor of Physics at John F. Kennedy University of California, research consultant to NASA and the U.S. Navy, and a member of IEEE, APS, AAAS, MAA, ANA, AAMI. Elizabeth Rauscher-Bise identified specific frequency effects to induce nausea, happiness and many other behavioral states decades ago. Clearly, Dr. Rauscher-Bise is an enthusiast: "Give me the money and three months", she boasts, "and I'll be able to affect the behavior of 80 per cent of the people in this town without their knowing it. Make them happy - or at least they'll think they're happy. Or aggressive."

            Unlike many researchers in this field, Elizabeth Rauscher-Bise tends to be open about her work, has demonstrated the effects many times in quasi-public forums, and claims to experiment only on fully informed people. Many years ago during one memorable demonstration in California, she turned a specific brain wave on all students in the left-side of her auditorium, whereupon their teeth started chattering collectively and uncontrollably. When the unaffected students on the right-side of the auditorium suggested this might be some sort of trick, Elizabeth Rauscher-Bise calmly turned  the specific brain wave on them instead. The right-side now suffered exactly the same fate, watched by the stunned but no longer affected students on the left-side.

            The main problem lies in the delivery of the these brain waves to the target, because  they all lie in the extremely low spectrum, between 0.1 and 25 Hertz [Cycles], with all control brain waves in an even narrower central band between 0.6 and 10.2 Hertz. These are effectively the same as “earth” frequencies, meaning that they are very hard to direct via conventional radio transmission. Remember that in order to be effective in selective crowd behavior augmentation, you must be able to restrict delivery to clearly defined crowds in clearly defined areas.  This is achieved by using an extremely high frequency microwave beam, which is then amplitude modulated at exactly the same rate as the desired control brain wave. This is much easier to explain with pictures, so take a good look at the diagram below.


           Microwaves in the 1.0 to 3.0 Gigahertz range travel in perfectly straight lines, like light, making them easy to control in terms of direction, and regardless of power output. In most cases microwaves are transmitted by a dish aerial of the sort you frequently see located low down on a tall television transmitter mast. These are designed to transfer high volume electronic data between the television studio and transmitter, and vice versa.  Where the American “Mind Controllers” score with their airborne and truck mounted equipment is by using microwave aerials that can be adjusted, in exactly the same way as you would adjust the focus on a variable beam flashlight. How this is done is shown in the second diagram below.


           In the Rwandan Hutu tribesmen example shown at the start of this report, the crew of the C-130 Hercules only needed to know the width of the target crowd on the ground, and the width of their own microwave beam at any given true altitude in feet [as read directly from the radar altimeter]. With those two values available, it is then a simple matter to adjust beam width to  accurately bracket the target crowd from any altitude chosen.

            But this equipment is not just deployed in large lumbering Hercules transport planes. During recent weeks, European security experts have concluded that smaller versions of Crimson Mist were recently deployed on the street of Baghdad, designed in part to augment the media propaganda line that  Iraqi citizens are dangerous savages, all badly in need of direct supervision by “democratic” American authorities. One classic example of this was the “looting” of the Baghdad Museum, apparently by a crowd of undisciplined rabble, but video footage tells a very different story.

            To pull off this stunt the American authorities needed to assemble a crowd, managed quite easily with a promise of free food. Then they needed to place the crowd outside the museum, which again was easy because they located the free food outside the museum itself. Next up,  the attention of the crowd had to be drawn to the museum itself, which was achieved in spectacular fashion by firing two 120-mm shells from an Abrams tank gun straight through the main doors.

            Fine so far, but how to get them inside? The video shows two soldiers gesticulating to the crowd, urging them to go in and help themselves, thereby clearly identifying the target “Rwanda-style”.  Then it starts to get really interesting! The two soldiers rapidly withdraw, leaving the Iraqis standing leaderless outside the open doors, and  then CLICK, just like flicking a light switch, the entire crowd goes nuts absolutely simultaneously, which never happens in real life. In the real world there is always a leader visibly stirring up the crowd and preparing them for action, but not outside the Baghdad Museum. One second these folk are dull hungry Iraqis, next second they are instant uncontrollable maniacs streaming in though the museum doors.

            It is also suspected that the same equipment was used to augment the “looting attacks” on various hospitals around central Baghdad, though this claim seems to be based as much on logic as it is on video footage. These so-called “looters” are Iraqi citizens who received essentially free health care in the hospitals under Saddam Hussein. Not only that, but their wives and children are being bombed and shot by Americans, meaning that their free hospitals are absolutely essential to them, and thus the very places they would normally defend in the first instance. Bearing this logic in mind, it seems likely that the European security experts are also correct in this claim.


           While there is unlikely to be very much concern in America,  Britain and Australia for the plight of Iraqis on the streets of Baghdad, it may be time to examine what is likely to happen in our own “democratic” countries if things get more out of control than they are at present. Remember that the 2.2-million-strong demonstration in London just before the illegal invasion of Iraq, had little if anything to do with English folk liking Saddam Hussein.  Iraq was merely an excuse for this unprecedented mass of human beings to migrate to London waving banners that mostly read “Not in Our Name” at corrupt politicians.

            The bottom line is that the next time 2.2 million British citizens descend on the capital to have a go at the politicians [their real targets], they might be carrying something far more dangerous than banners. Every policeman and military man knows very well that a 2.2 million strong mass with hostile intent, simply cannot be stopped by standard riot control techniques, and they cannot be stopped by bullets fired by soldiers on the streets. Even if British soldiers could be persuaded to open fire on their own neighbors [most unlikely],  the entire Army would be powerless to act. So what then?

            Across the Atlantic in America, and in Australia, things are really no better. As I write, the American dollar is heading straight for basement levels, which in turn will lead to a depression and increased anger on the part of all Americans, aimed largely at corrupt politicians on Capitol Hill. Naturally the politicians will try to put the people down as usual, but what if this time it is a step too far. What if a few hundred or few thousand of the 260 million private weapons in American hands are brought into play, what then?

            The chances are that in all affected western countries, politicians and their real masters will try to invoke the use of highly unconventional weapons in order to try and save their own worthless hides.  How successful they might be when that day comes, as it surely will, is largely up to you.

For those who have not been paying attention over the past 7 years. Multiple millions of unemployed people have migrated within Europe. Places like England and Germany have many bright and hard working Polish, Spanish,Irish, Greek etc people. Often they have university degrees and speak 3 or more languages. Recruiters are looking for the cream and more than a few have advanced degrees and industry experience.

Also many Spanish and Portugese people are migrating to South America. Here in Australia I have had at least a dozen young Irish men and women as co-workers who have been here for a few months to a few years. None plan on going back to live in Ireland

The Gall–Peters projection deforms the continents, so its not really better then the mercator one. It shoes the true relative size of the continent though.

Better than what they teach kids with, if the govt maps were real, the planet would be almost three times bigger than it actually is.

Listen up, people, then I'll tell you a thing about it: If you really want to know what the planet looks like - use a terrestrial globe! NO projection comes even close ... and you can use it as a bedside lamp, too. :)

So all you have to do then, is kick the Rothchilds to the curb and the country will prosper. Jesus was right.

And if you overlayed crime rates, they need to spend less money on unemplyment and spend more money on crime prevention

There has always been an overproduction of young males .

What to do with them ?

Usually , they are used up as war-fodder .

Tech societies use them as geeks .

Create wealth , get rich , show the jocks .

If there is no real work for them , you have the same problem Lois VIIII had with his young men . 


Probably the same solution . 

To seek glory in the cannon's mouth .

Unless you use the Ostrum solution .

Usually the leaders send them to war. When their young their too naive to figure out their there to kill or be killed.

We might be predicting more wars as the sad solution to this problem. Ugly indeed.

If the young would just be patient and wait 20 to 30 years they would be middle aged, no problem then getting a job. In the meantime Taco Bell, Beer and food stamps for everyone.

For them to survive most of us have to die off.

Nothing like millions of idle young intelligent minds with nothing but forks and knives (no food) to turn them into us.

YeeeeeeeeeeHaaaaaaaaaa everyone is hoping and changing.

Who needs to work these days, we are living in an era where working is not needed anymore. Everything is so efficient that ultimately, we can live for free.

Sadly many people are taking to that thought. Few Americans ever really work through the numbers but fact is if you can get enough from the Government in disability, unemployment, or some other kind of welfare why even jeopardize that income by thinking about taking a job.

For all the moaning about how it is not enough and those living on the dole are forced into a life of poverty in fact those that suffer greatly often do so because of poor spending choices rather then the amount they receive. Mor on living on the dole and how it is transforming society in the article below.

I suppose if I were young, unemployed and desperate I could join the military to fight WW3. Yah, that's the plan.

We HAVE to keep the youth from working.  Who else would be on Farm Ville taking care of all that virtual lettuce? Come on, Mark Fuckberg desperately needs users, who else will keep him warm and feed?

Why does that map show Russia as being larger than Africa?
Russia - 17m km^2
Africa -  30m km^2 (76% larger)

Thats what happens when you peel off the surface of a sphere and stretch it into a rectangular shape for continuity. The regions closer to the poles get stretched and appear to look larger than they actually are.

JOBS JOBS JOBS JOBS in Mexico. I'm getting a small group together for $1000 a piece, I can arrange transportation across the border in avoidance of the Federales. We'll be crossing near Yuma Arizona into the Sonora desert in an unrefrigerated box truck. You will need to commit to at least one year labor in a garment factory. Housing and an expense account will be arranged. Sturdy shoes are recommended.

Shocking! The implications of poor job creation are massive. The biggest may be that a huge number of people are dropping from the work force. Often these people have little in the way of savings, this means that the burden of caring for them will be transferred to society.

If to many people shift into this category we will slowly wear down through attrition. Finding a fair way to share and balance the work load that goes on every day may be one of the most important problems facing our modern world. Not discovering a solution to this dilemma bodes poorly for our consumer driven economy and adds to the toxic problem of inequality. More on this subject in the article below.
