JLB1530 | Cadbury Chocolate Rations Down – 1984 Redux

Your money is buying you less and less with every passing year, and yet the corporate media wants you to believe this is perfectly normal. Worse, most people seem oblivious to what is going on and many even think that things are getting better. This is 1984 and the masses are Parsons. By the way, if you haven’t seen the brilliant documentary 1984 it is high time you did so!

UPDATE: And that government money was withdrawn after substantial layoffs at the company just recently. See http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-05-22/sad-day-for-cadbury-as-the-chocolate-giant-sheds-80-jobs/6488796 Even with offers of government handouts these companies are sacking workers. Yet more evidence that things are getting worse.
