daddy at work at the slaughterhouse

In industrialized meat production you run head long into a lot of problems.

The pork producer, the meat packer and the retail seller are all at odds.

Each wants to maximize profit and minimize expense.

Each is willing to externalize costs.

Contract negotiation will be coercive and unfavorable if any of these three branches of industry have been monopolized.

Pork packing firms are independent profitable business'.

After the Panic of 1873, pork packing becomes a losing business.

The packers in St. Louis, Louisville and Cincinnati are buying and killing.

By the time the bacon is put on the market Philip Danforth Armour has flooded the market.

"I come from a long line of pig butchers and meat-packers: Armour.

My not-too-distant relatives were responsible for such ingenious inventions as the refrigerated train car and the "kill floor," and ultimately the meat-oriented status of the modern American diet.

Armour owned a business which bought hogs from local farmers for delivery to slaughterers and packers.

The demands of the hungry Union armies during the Civil War created a boom in pork and the Armour brothers prospered - and profiteered.

In a business move that might land you in jail Philip took advantage of artificially swollen food prices toward the end of 1864 and sold futures to pork barrels he did not possess for delivery in the spring of 1865 when, he gambled, the War would be ending and prices would have fallen.

His gamble paid off, and netted a two million profit at the expense of disgruntled traders and government merchants." - Jeffrey Armour Nelson

1869 Two years after the Armour packing house is built in Chicago six thousand hogs are being butchered a day.

Armour originates a number of assembly line slaughtering techniques, the use of waste products and the sale of canned meat.

Armour packing houses in Kansas City, Omaha and Chicago.

Packers in St. Louis, Cincinnati and Louisville, go bankrupt.

"Employees worked as much as 18 hours a day in unsanitary conditions.

There always seemed to be another new young man available and willing to step in and take the hammer, knife or saw whenever an employee would lose a finger, hand, eye - or stomach for the job.

The Armours were ruthless competitors; they would open a retail outlet in every city and flood the market with their products, selling them at such ridiculously low prices the local butchers and outlets could not compete.

Townsfolk took to Armour meat with the intensity of Heroin™ addicts.

Once the local competition was forced to close their doors and leave Armour would then raise prices and control availability through pricing.

Armour, using this technique, drove thousands of smaller operators who had been in the butchery business for years into bankruptcy and ruin.

Monopolistic business practices caused a tumult when US soldiers in the Spanish-American War died from eating meat canned by Armour.

Armour and his competitors permission of sawdust, rats, animal feces, and portions of animals heretofore considered inedible being used in the production of "meat" products eventually got the attention of Congress.

The Sherman Anti-Trust Act is enacted to protect the public from the unscrupulous business practices of the Armours and "robber barons."

Years after its enactment, the Armours were indicted for violations of the Sherman Act based on testimony they gave before Congress in which they revealed the very incriminating details of their business practices.

A brilliant, silver-tongued lawyer of the day retained by the Armours argued that they should be able to invoke -- retroactively -- their Fifth Amendment right not to implicate themselves, and thus prevent the introduction at trial of their own previous damning testimony before Congress, and prevent the introduction of all the evidence procured as a result of that testimony.

On the eve of trial, after a jury had been empaneled, a judge accepted the lawyer's argument and dismissed the case against the Armours.

The newspapers of the day proclaimed derisively that the Armours' lawyer had given them an 'immunity bath'." - Jeffrey Armour Nelson

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their philosophical ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
