LEE KYANG:
THE RICH AND THE POOR!
AMERICA AND GOD!

By: S.R. Shearer
February 2, 2004

INTRODUCTION

At the very center of America's New World Order System is the "UNHOLY TRINITY" of (1) the World Bank, (2) the World Trade Organization (WTO - i.e., formerly the GATT system) and (3) the International Monetary Fund (IMF) - all AMERICAN-controlled institutions despite their internationalist-appearing facades. Each one of these institutions was created SPECIFICALLY as part of America's post World War II strategy to dominate the world. The strategy, known as the "Grand Area Concept," speaks EXPLICITLY about the need to use American economic, political and - most of all - MILITARY power to "arrange world affairs" in such a way that the other nations of the world would be reduced to the status of U.S. client states. [Please see Noam Chomsky (MIT), On Power and Ideology, Lecture One; also Edward S. Herman "Liberals in Search of a Foreign Policy" in Z Magazine, December, 2003.]

AT THE VERY HEART OF THIS UNHOLY TRINITY IS THE WTO. The WTO is the principle means by which the rich oppress the poor in today's New World Order, and by which they "stamp the residue of them (i.e., the poor) with their feet." (cf., Daniel 7:7) [Please see our article, "Inside the American New World Order System" for a detailed discussion on how this "unholy trinity" functions, especially as that functioning relates to the PROTECTION RACKET run by the U.S. military.]

Amory Starr, a well-known anti-globalist activist and scholar writes:

"The World Trade Organization is the cat's meow for [American] corporations [and their LACKEY European and Japanese counterparts] seeking to scoop up the land, labor, natural resources, and markets of [poor] third world nations ... For [poor] people ... the WTO endangers EVERY aspect of their lives and their societies."

OPPOSITION TO THE WTO BY THE POOR

Naturally enough, opposition to the WTO by the world's poor - who are never quite as "dumb" as the elites imagine them to be - has been growing exponentially over the last decade, and so much so that the organization is now facing what Starr calls a "burgeoning crisis of legitimacy." For example, its 1999 third biannual Ministerial foundered on MASSIVE street protests in Seattle. [Please see our article, "The WTO and the Masses."]

Two years later, the ministers - dazed and utterly taken aback by what had happened in Seattle - retreated from public view and held their fourth biannual Ministerial under the protective guns of the American military in the tiny U.S.-dominated oil sheikdom of Qatar where civil protest is illegal. But giving the appearance that they are cowering from the "mob" like a bunch of milksops and pantywaists is a dangerous thing for the elites to do; it conveys a sense of weakness which - if the "mob" catches the scent of it - could spell disaster for them. They've been there before when the so-called "rabble" sensed weakness from them: in Paris in 1789 (i.e., the French Revolution) and at the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg in 1917 (i.e., the Russian Revolution). The elites don't want a repeat of those twin nightmares. They don't want to go the way of King Louis XVI and Czar Nicholas II - that's for sure!

Clearly, then, the elites had to reemerge from the shadows if they had any hope of maintaining their hold on "legitimacy." They chose Mexico as the place where they would reappear, as Starr puts it, into "the sunshine of public discourse;" but not just anywhere in Mexico - i.e., any place where they thought there might be a likelihood that the poor could "get at them" (like Guadalajara or Mexico City) - but Cancun; specifically, in the Las Vegas-esque hotel zone of that fun-city for rich American tourists.

Isolated as Cancun is out on the Yucatan Peninsula, the elites thought they would be relatively safe from the fury of the poor. Still, just in case, they insulated the conference area with three concentric 6-foot high fences and brought in riot police from all over Mexico to keep the poor at bay in the event a few of them managed somehow or other to find their way across the forbidding, snake-infested Yucatan Peninsula to Cancun.

THE ELITES UNDERESTIMATE THE
RESOURCEFULNESS OF THE POOR

But the elites had underestimated the resourcefulness and determination of the poor - and their frenzied DESPERATION to be heard - and as the time of the Ministerial drew near, thousands and thousands and thousands of poor people from all over the world began gathering at a huge improvised campsite 6 miles down the road from where the WTO meeting was to be held. And right there - under the very noses of the self-important, conceited "experts" at the WTO meeting - the so-called "ignorant," "uneducated," "brown-skinned" peasants and campesinos began holding educational meetings and conferences ranging from biotechnology to water privatization (subjects that the poor are not supposed to know anything about); they also began to teach each other how to make cardboard armor, bracing for what they expected to be a particularly violent police response - after all, they had not been invited to this party. It was by "invitation only." They were "party-crashers."

The largest of the poor people's groups present was Via Campesina, the international farmers' organization that represents 100 MILLION FARMERS in 70 countries, which set up a headquarters complete with an eco-village and meeting space for thousands of Mexican campesinos. Smaller delegations of farmer associations came from all over the world, with the largest external delegation coming from Korea.

The poor staged two major protests and a number of smaller actions, but were unable to make themselves heard because they were confined to a "protest zone" similar to the ones being used today in the United States by the Bush administration (please see our article, "The Power of Self-Sacrifice: Taking Up Your Cross and Following Him" for a discussion on how these "protest zones" work).

Finally, on September 10, about eight thousand campesinos exited the "protest zone" and marched to the first fence that the elites had erected around themselves in Cancun. Student delegations from Mexico City accompanied the marchers. The fence was successfully breached, and the marchers continued on to the second fence.

Arriving at that fence, Lee Kyang, a desperately poor 56 year old farmer from Korea appeared before the crowd and read the following statement:

"I have mostly failed, as many other farm leaders elsewhere have failed ... [We] Korean farmers realize that our destinies are no longer in our own hands. We cannot seem to do anything to stop the waves [of First World greed and avarice that now wash over the earth] and have destroyed our communities where we have been settled for hundreds of years ..."

Then turning toward the plush hotels where the WTO ministers were gathered about a mile away, he said:

"For whom do you negotiate? For (ordinary) people, or for yourselves (i.e., the rich)?"

THE DESPERATION OF THE POOR

Wearing a sign saying "The WTO Kills Farmers" Kyang then climbed atop the fence and committed suicide with a knife to the heart.

Such is the desperation of poor peasant farmers around the world. Kyang's act echoed the thousands of other farmer-suicides that have been taking place all around the globe as giant First World food and chemical conglomerates like Cargill, ADL, Bunge, Dow, Monsanto, Lever Brothers, etc. gobble them up, kick them off their land, and force them into the vast slums and shantytowns that today surround cities like Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Guatemala City, Mexico City, Lagos, etc. where they live like rats in a garbage dump - and these companies do all this NOT for the purpose of making food cheaper for ordinary people (as they cynically advertise in the corporate media), but for controlling food production in order to enrich themselves.

The intersection where Kyang committed suicide was immediately renamed "Plaza Lee" and all over the city graffiti was placed reading "Lee Vive" and "Todos somos Kyang" ("We are all Kyang") - a saying popularized by the Zapatistas in their on-going struggle against the Mexican government in the remote southern province of Chiapas. [Please see our article, "Chiapas: The Effect of the New World Order on the Poor."]

There then followed several days of tumultuous protests with thousands and thousands of poor campesinos wearing Kyang armbands getting their heads bashed in by the police who were guarding the WTO Ministerial.

NO PLACE FOR THE POOR
AT THE TABLE OF THE RICH

Brothers and sisters in Christ - you may never have heard about any of this, largely because the corporate media in the United States does not report on it. You also may never have heard of the many other similar demonstrations - demonstrations by the poor and dispossessed that are taking place all over the globe directed against the institutional machinery of the American New World Order System. But, believe me when I tell you that it's happening, and that the poor have plenty of reason to protest! Why? - BECAUSE THERE IS NO PLACE FOR THEM IN THE AMERICAN NEW WORLD ORDER SYSTEM, fulfilling the grim lyric on the lips of the ghostly phantasm astride the Black Horse of the Apocalypse:

"A measure of wheat for a penny [literally - denarius, a Greek coin which represented a WHOLE DAYS wage in the ancient world], and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine." (Rev. 6:6)

[The meaning of this is that the condition of the poor at the "end of the age" will be reduced to such that a poor man will have to labor a whole day simply to buy a loaf of bread or three measures of barley. But the second part of the saying ["... and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine ..."] means that the poverty of these days will not extend to those SYCHOPHANTS and "TOADIES" who ally themselves with the American New World Order System and assist it in plundering the world - only the rich in the ancient world could afford oil and wine!]

WHERE DO YOU STAND IN ALL THIS?

Are you a SYCHOPHANT to the American New World Order System? Are you a "TOADY" to it? Are you assisting it in anyway? - no matter how peripherally? Are you? Are you connected to it? - no matter how tangentially? Are you? These are important questions! Because if you are, you are partly to blame for what happened to Lee Kyang! - and not just Kyang, but thousands of other peasant farmers just like him who every year commit suicide (mainly by drinking pesticides) because they see no hope in their battle for survival against the EVIL machinations of this wicked, wicked system and prefer death to being consigned as human trash to the slums and shantytowns that today surround the citadels of the rich.

Brothers and sisters, listen! - SIMPLY SPEAKING OUT AGAINST THE AMERICAN NEW WORLD ORDER SYSTEM WITHOUT AT THE SAME TIME DISENGAGING YOURSELF FROM IT IS AN EXERCISE IN SELF-DECEPTION. It will not help you with God on THAT DAY, not even one whit! Indeed, all you may be doing is gathering up enough rope with which to hang yourself insofar as God is concerned.

And more than that, Is your church connected in any way to Christian leaders who support the American New World Order System? - empty-headed nincompoops and morons like Paul Crouch, Jack Hayford, Charles Stanley, D. James Kennedy, Tim LaHaye, the late John Wimber, Juan Carlos Ortiz, C. Peter Wagner, Beverley LaHaye, Ern Baxter, Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth Hagin, Oral Roberts, Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, Chuck Colson, David Yonggi Cho, Robert Stearns, Mike Bickle, Reuven Doron, Che Ahn, Frank Hammond, Cindy Jacobs, Bill Hamon, John Eckhardt, Bobbie Byerly, Dutch Sheets, Jim Goll, John Paul Jackson, James Ryle, Frank Damazio, Ed Silvoso, Carlos Annacondia, Claudio Freidzon, Roger Mitchell, Ted Haggart, Paul Cain, Chuck Pierce, Rick Joyner, Kingsley Fletcher, Jim Laffoon, Barbara Wentroble, ad infinitum, ad nauseum. Is your church connected to any of these people? Don't lie here! Don't fudge the truth! Answer the question honestly. Does your church book store sell their material? Do they speak at your church? Come on now, be honest!

If your church is connected to any of these people - and you continue to support it (i.e., your church) by your presence and contributions, no matter what the reason, no matter how justified you think you are in doing so, and no matter how much you think you, your wife, and your children benefit from it - you too are responsible for what happened to Kyang! You may not "feel" it, but just as surely as that "paper-pusher" (clerk) at the I.G. Farben Company in Frankfurt was as guilty of mass murder as the SS "Death's Head" guards at the company's "production facilities" (slave-labor factories) at Auschwitz, Sobibor, Treblinka, etc. were, so you too are guilty.

It doesn't matter whether or not you're a good person, a faithful husband or wife, a loving father or mother; a devout Christian. It doesn't matter if you secretly disapprove of what the American New World Order System is up to in Peru, Colombia, Iraq, Guatemala, the Congo, etc., or whether or not you pray night and day on bended knees for the bodies and souls of those who are being ground into dust as a result of the machinations of this evil system. Kyang's blood will still stain your hands and pollute your soul on THAT DAY, and your personal holiness and your personal goodness are not going to count for much in light of those stains - OR do you really think that God will excuse your connection with the American New World Order System because of your much praying and your personal holiness? As I said in an earlier article, if you think so, YOU'RE NUTS! Your prayers and your personal life have to have a PUBLIC outcome; there has to be some connection between your prayers and the way you PUBLICLY conduct your life.

GET OUT BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE

Brothers and sisters, YOU MUST DISCONNECT YOURSELF FROM AMERICA, both physically and spiritually. There is no other way! It's not without reason that the Bible says:

"Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." (Rev. 18:4)

No such warning was ever given to Christians living in the old Soviet Union, or in China, or in any of the nations of the Islamic world; only to Christians in the United States (i.e., "Babylon the Great"). Now that's heavy! That's very heavy!" Think about that! [Please see our articles, "In Search of Babylon: What Do the Scriptures Say," "The Revolution in Military Affairs," and "America verses Europe."]

Moreover, as I indicated previously - please, please don't make the asinine and sophomoric mistake that some do who say that eventually all the world will become part of the American New World Order System; and, therefore, to leave the United States will - in the long run - accomplish little or nothing for you. THAT IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE! THAT'S A CONVENIENT BUT VERY WICKED CONTRIVANCE AND SUBTERFUGE. As we said in our last article, "The Weather Man Cometh" -

"It's true, all the world will eventually be absorbed by the American New World Order System, just as all of Europe was eventually conquered and absorbed by Nazi Germany; but there was still a great difference to be remarked upon insofar as Germany's conquered territories were concerned (i.e., France, Denmark, Poland, the Ukraine, Norway, Holland, Belgium, etc.) and Germany herself; and there was a GREAT DISTINCTION to be remarked upon insofar as the conduct of these different populations were concerned vis a vis the people of Germany. Germany's population actually PARTICIPATED in Germany's crimes; the population of Germany's "slave states" SUFFERED as a result of these crimes. There is a big difference here; it is, to put it in the vernacular, the difference between the "screwer" and the "screwee;" the difference between the one who is being raped, and the one who is doing the raping; the difference between the perpetrator and the victim; the difference between MASTER and SLAVE - SO ALSO INSOFAR AS AMERICA IS CONCERNED vis a vis HER CLIENT-STATES, i.e., HER SLAVE STATES.

IS THIS TOO HEAVY FOR YOU?

You say that all this is too heavy! - too heavy for you! BUT THE "END OF THE AGE" IS A VERY HEAVY AFFAIR? - or did you think it was just a game? Something you could play at when you had the time to do so?

If you think so, you're wrong, and no matter how hard you try to avoid it, you will still have to answer the question: WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON? - THE POOR'S SIDE OR AMERICA'S SIDE? And before you answer, you need to understand that - contrary to what you may have heard from your pastor - it's the poor with whom God identifies Himself. Concerning the rich, the New Testament says:

"Go to now, ye rich men, WEEP AND HOWL FOR YOUR MISERIES THAT SHALL COME UPON YOU.

"Your riches are CORRUPTED, and your garments are MOTHEATEN.

"Your gold and silver is CANKERED; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. YE HAVE HEAPED TREASURE TOGETHER FOR THE LAST DAYS.

"Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you KEPT BACK BY FRAUD, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth (people you have worked to death in your sweatshops in Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Haiti, Mexico, Panama, China, etc.).

"Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.

"Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you. (James 5:1-6)

But Jesus said concerning the poor:

"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because HE HATH ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR (To whom? - the poor, not the rich); he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, TO SET AT LIBERTY THEM THAT ARE BRUISED ..." (Luke 4:18)

And the Bible goes on to say:

His mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.

He hath showed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

He hath put down the mighty from their seats and exalted them of low degree.

He hath filled the hungry with good things, AND THE RICH HE HATH SENT EMPTY AWAY. (Luke 1:50-53)

So, now - go ahead - answer the question, Whose side are you on? - the poor's side, or America's? If you choose America, then I somberly and earnestly warn you, you are NOT on God's side! - and someday you will "pay the piper" for your stupidity. I URGE you, while you still have the chance, INVEST YOUR LIFE IN CHRIST; a thousand years from now, you will be glad you did so, and you will thank me THEN for being harsh and severe NOW.

God bless you all!
