My Message of Hope, Love & Freedom

I finally got a call from the US Embassy and I’ve been accepted to fly back to America on a commercial sweeper flight!

I’m coming home for two reasons…

  1. Deliver my message of freedom
  2. Go out and get arrested exercising those freedoms… Not by breaking any laws, just merely exercising my natural born rights; Rights that every human being on Earth should have!

I will go live on FB so others can watch and to record it for my personal enjoyment to watch later.

For those of you who don’t know much about me, I’ve spent the better part of 14 years living and working in countries all over the world. Some very poor and obscure and some very fancy and famous…

But I won’t be mentioning any countries in particular for two reasons…

  1. I don’t want to appear to criticize the people there because I love and respect them all and I realized in all my years of travel, that we are all one, no matter where we come from and we ALL deserve freedom!
  2. I don’t want to become a political target when I return to those countries.

One thing I can say for sure, is that most people in the world have never even tasted REAL freedom. Not even in those fancy 1st world countries that I’ve visited.

Ridicule and Consequences

I know a lot of people disagree with my message, even some of my closest friends, some of my own family and loved ones around me.

I may have to step down as CEO in my company because I’m sure many of my clients and colleagues won’t agree with me too and I don’t want to affect others in the company.

That being said, I’m willing to risk it all, even my life, to retain my freedoms!

The Storm is Upon Us

Many people in the world have been cast into a storm of darkness and government totalitarianism. Right now there are people all over the world being arrested, beaten and even killed all in the name of this VIRUS!

I want to avoid getting into the politics, even though this was a political power grab from day one. Instead, I want to focus on the real message, which is hope, love and freedom.

Billions of people are already suffering and in the years to come, will continue to suffer…

  • The sick & elderly are having their health neglected
  • People are committing suicide
  • Countless people have lost their jobs and livelihoods
  • People are already facing starvation in the poorer parts of the world
  • Governments everywhere are abusing us and treating us like cattle
  • Billions are living in fear
  • Almost everyone on Earth lost their most basic rights
  • The wealthy elite and big corps are gaining as us peasants lose everything
  • And this is just the beginning, unimaginable suffering will follow…

When looking at the impact of past recessions and the great depression, its clear that it will take years if not a decade to recover from.

Pandemics Are Not New

The world has faced many pandemics, they’ve been around since ancient times so why is this time so much different?

  • Plague of Athens in 430b.c.
  • The black death killed as many as 200 million people, maybe more
  • And of course the American yellow fever and smallpox which killed millions and ironically, happened during the American Revolution

This is a strong part of my message, the founding fathers fought the revolutionary war in the midst of this pandemic. They fought anyways because they knew that freedom was the most important thing that humans could have, even more so than safety.

Benjamin Franklin and many others said something along the lines of, “Those who would trade freedom for safety deserve neither”.

Millions, actually billions of people since the beginning of time have died fighting for their freedoms all the way from the Exodus out of Egypt to the American Revolutionary war, to World Wars and lets not forget the countless struggles and skirmishes in the most remote regions of the world.

The human spirit was not meant to be enslaved!

Front Liners and Casualties

I admire and respect all the front liners who have made sacrifices and my heart goes to those who have lost loved ones from this virus.

I’m not here to to discuss or discredit any of their efforts or the stats or the mortality rates. We all have seen the claims and numbers fluctuate and so far no organization has been able to get it right.

Lies run sprints but the truth runs marathons so I am hopeful that one day we will know the truth about what really happened.

My Goal

Even if I can only inspire only 4 people, I will consider this a mission accomplished. They can’t arrest 350 million Americans much less the almost 8 billion people of the world.

I want the W.H.O, W.E.F, UN and the other interconnected global powers off American soil and then to be disbanded and hopefully closed forever.

I want all countries on Earth to become sovereign and maybe that has to start with America. I want the people of every nation to be able to decide the fate of their own country not by global bureaucrats but by the people themselves.

I want the people to stop living in fear!

Outsource to America

After almost 14 years of living and working abroad outsourcing to places like Romania, India and the Philippines, and co-founding Clark Outsourcing, I’m so excited to see America become an outsourcing destination for many Australian and European companies. And I’m even more excited to see that Forbes considers my home state of North Carolina to have the best business climate in the entire U.S. two years in a row!

$7.25 USD Minimum Wages

North Carolina still has one of the lowest minimum wages in the country at $7.25/hr. That being said, this is for an entry level employee, intern or student, while a more skilled position will cost you just a bit more to fill.

Just as important as hiring, is firing. You can fire an employee in America just as easy as saying those two words that made Trump famous, “You’re Fired!”. The labor laws are written to make sure that the employee’s job security lays in their performance and not in some bureaucratic labor laws that do more harm than good.

To give you an idea of the going wages, here’s an example of the average monthly salaries for some commonly outsourced positions…

  • Accounting- $1,800 to $2,800
  • Encoder- $1,440 to $2,000
  • Telephone Agent- $1,440 to $2,500
  • Web, Graphics/Video- $2,100 to $3,750
  • Office Manager- $2,100 to $2,900
  • Software Developer- $2,500 to $5,900
  • Copywriter- $1,440 or $.10 per word
  • Rendering & AutoCAD- $2,900 to $5,000
  • Sales Agent- Commission Only*

While these rates may be much higher than what we pay in our Philippines facility, they are still almost half price of what the same position would cost in Australia, NZ, UK and other parts of the world!

Why North Carolina?

In addition to lower wages and the lowest corporate tax in the country at 3%, North Carolina also boasts some of the nation’s most highly rated Universities. Duke, UNC, Wake Forest and NC State aren’t just famous for their sports teams that pump out more all-stars than any other state but also for providing a steady supply of educated graduates into the workforce. They seem to want to stay also. Whether the graduates are from North Carolina or came from elsewhere, they always seem to prefer living here and launching their careers locally. Candidates will often turn down higher paid job offers to work in New York or California not only because the higher cost of living but also the quality of life that North Carolina has to offer with its pristine beaches and beautiful mountains.

Startup Hotspot

The low wages and surplus labor pool has turned North Carolina into a hotbed of corporate activity including IT hubs and startup incubation. Charlotte is set to overtake Atlanta as the fastest growing major city in the South and is now the home of Bank of America’s corporate headquarters. The Raleigh/Durham area has their world famous Research Triangle Park where many cutting edge technologies are developed. And Wilmington, NC with its beautiful beaches, attracts the best talent the state has to offer. Its no wonder why IBM, Lowe’s, Bank of America and 52 other major firms all have corporate offices here!

Price to Quality Ratio

A wise businessman once told me, “Cheap can be expensive.” and after outsourcing to underdeveloped countries for well over a decade, I fully understand what he was talking about. Some jobs just require a higher level of responsibility, accountability and the ability to think on one’s feet. You can say what you want about the Americans you might have seen on TV but at the end of the day, we’re the kinda people you can count on to get the job done! Hiring an American means the training curve will be lessened and you can have confidence that the work will be carried out diligently, without constant oversight.

Most work can be outsourced to our Philippines office but in that same sense, most of our clients (if not all) can also benefit from having a few key roles outsourced to an American in our new US based facility in North Carolina.

The Political Climate

No matter where in the world you are, I’m sure you’ve seen American politics in the news and of course all the funny online memes but no matter which side of the fence you are on, everyone can agree, America is Open for Business! We’ve experienced very bullish growth in our markets, have become the largest energy producer in the world, record number of companies are relocating here, record job creation, all time low unemployment among women and minorities and lots of deregulation to clear the way for more economic growth. No matter if you love or hate Trump, one thing’s for sure, this is a historical opportunity to do business in America and hire hard working Americans!

Do you have a project for me?

I am a serial entrepreneur and outsourcing consultant with over 14 years in India, Romania and the Philippines. If you are currently outsourcing, hiring remote workers or interested in expanding your business, I’d love to hear more about it. I will be in America setting up our newest co-work facility in Wilmington, North Carolina until late November, 2019. Feel free to call me directly between 9am and 5pm EST. at (+1) 910-228-8819 or drop me an email at Zack@ClarkOutsourcing.com.

Parasite Cleanse

The Center for Disease Control estimates that some 60 million people in America have parasites. Other recent studies estimate that in developing countries like the Philippines, Mexico, Central America and even China, as many as 60% to 80% of the people are living with parasites. In addition, the average person has anywhere from 2 to 6 pounds of bacteria living in your body as well. But unlike parasites, most of this bacteria is healthy.

My Personal Experience

I’ve been traveling for work to places like India, SE Asia, East Europe and Africa since 2006. That being said, I’ve had a few nasty run-ins with parasites (mostly intestinal) so I’m trying to get better at learning how to deal with them. The first time was in 2007 when I contracted ameba in India. It took several months before the symptoms got bad enough that I knew something was wrong. It started off with just a loss of energy and the occasional lose bowel movements but within a few months, I had lost several pounds of weight and got distended stomach. I could barely go outside for more than a couple hours at a time without needing to rest. I had several tests but those tricky little buggers aren’t always detectable in your stool samples so it wasn’t until I was admitted into a hospital (after collapsing in a public market) that they found it after a few days and several tests. They also discovered it had ruptured my intestine and was poisoning my blood. This is an extreme case, most people live with parasites with little to no affect on their body but every once in a while, they can wreak havoc on your guts and make you feel like you were dying or wish you would just die and get it over with.

Do You Have Parasites?

If you’ve ever traveled to a developing country, regularly eat pork or especially sushi, the answer is probably. You have somewhere around an 80% increased chance of having intestinal parasites. Furthermore, if you have a beer belly that just won’t go away, no matter how hard you exercise and diet, that could also be another sign that you may have some creatures happily living in your guts.

Pharmaceutical vs Natural

Western medicine is amazing. Literally billions of people wouldn’t be alive today without it. That being said, antibiotic and anti-parasitic medications should be your first choice! They can be really rough on your body and make you feel worse than the parasite but in the end, seeking proper medical treatment and pharmaceutical drugs is the best route. If like me, you have limited access to the best and most updated drugs and your body is very sensitive to the drugs and you are frustrated with dealing with inapt doctors in underdeveloped countries, you might want to try a natural parasite detox. But I warn you this is not the EASY route!

Foods to Avoid

These are foods you absolutely cannot eat while cleansing!

  1. Rice
  2. cereals
  3. breads
  4. pastas,
  5. any dairy whatsoever,
  6. any sugars whatsoever,
  7. fruits (unless mentioned e.g. pineapple, lemons)
  8. processed foods,
  9. any meats,
  10. beer and if you must drink, have a spirit neat or on the rocks only.

Foods to Eat

Really the less you eat, the better. You need to weaken and starve the parasites but here’s some items I snacked on that seemed to be okay and some even help kill the parasites…

  1. Nuts
  2. pickles
  3. coconut meat*
  4. broccoli
  5. onions
  6. olive oil
  7. chili peppers
  8. cabbage

Keep Your Guts Moving

Its very common to get constipated while cleansing so take castor oil and enzymes to help keep your bowels moving. I also highly recommend activated charcoal to help clean and flush because the parasites will release lots of toxins as they die off.

Side Effects

While the parasites are dying off they will release chemicals that will effect your hormones and mental state. You can get very sad and depressed but just remember its temporary and you will come out of it feeling happier and more energetic than ever!

Fascism is a Left Wing Ideology

Fascism has become a buzz word these days. Most people throw the word around without even knowing what it actually means. Most commonly, people on the Left side of the spectrum like to use the word to describe people on the Right. Firstly, lets look at the philosophers and founders of Fascism… Mussolini and Giovanni Gentile, the actual author of the Fascist manifesto, “La Dottrina del Fascismo” in which, he ghostwrote. Then, I will outline the party’s clear Left wing ideologies and its relationship with today’s American Left wing.

Gentile

GENTILE, Giovanni

Starting with Gentile, the official philosopher of Fascism, he was a self-proclaimed socialist who was responsible for the revival of Hegelian idealism in Italy, which, was yet another Leftist-Collectivist ideology of the late 1800s in Germany. He is also credited with bringing Marxism into mainstream Italian politics. He wrote a popular essay, “La Filosofia de Marx” where he outlines a new interpretation of Marxism that differed from Lenin’s. After ghost writing the Fascist manifesto, Mussolini appointed Gentile as the Minister of Public Instruction where he continued to push his new age Hegelian and Marxist based ideologies known as Fascism. Gentile maintained his disdain for capitalism and individualism and instead advocated for State control of the means of production and State collectivism which are the epitome of Leftism. Some of his Left wing policies include, free healthcare, free university, increased minimum wages, social workers rights and the control of the means of production by the State. Gentile never espoused, supported or passed any Right wing policies throughout any of his writings or his political career. He openly criticized America for having too many personal liberties and a free market and labeled us as “selfish”. Instead, he advocated that in order to have a true democracy, “individuals must willingly subordinate themselves to the State.”

Mussolini

Benito Mussolini

Now lets look at Benito Mussolini himself as he was the actual leader of the Fascist party. Before becoming the Prime Minister of Italy, he was a leading member of the Italian Socialist Party from 1910 to 1914 but was kicked out for supporting intervention in WWI and later created his new flavor of socialism mixed with a militarized nationalism. I think its important to look at his motivations, campaign promises and his implementation of Fascism in Italy. His economic motivations were clear as he was staunchly anti-capitalist and aimed to redistribute wealth with totalitarian control of the means of production. He was quoted saying, “Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power.” Much like Hitler’s economic approach he left owners and managers in place while exerting totalitarian control by sending in his own Gestapo known as the OVRA. Mussolini considered Fascism to be on the Right of communism as they were desperate to separate themselves from Stalin but still bragged on being far Left of the American center. As for his social policies they were also very Leftist as they were collectivist over individualist. He considered this to be the core of the philosophy and wrote, ” The keystone of the Fascist doctrine is its conception of the State, of its essence, its functions, and its aims. For Fascism the State is absolute, individuals and groups relative. Individuals and groups are admissible in so far as they come within the State.” His ideologies at their core are the polar opposite of the American Right wing which stands for free market capitalism, individualism and a small central government.

Nationalism & Racism

One of the most common arguments I get on this topic is that the Fascist were Racist and/or Nationalist and that is what makes them all the sudden Right wingers despite the mountain of Left wing policies. I want to demonstrate that neither racism nor nationalism are exclusively Left or Right wing. Its easy to prove this by pointing out the racism and/or nationalism of Mao, Che, Castro, Stalin, Pol Pot the Democrat party of slavery and Jim Crow and many other Left wing leaders and dictators. No one has ever tried to argue that any of these were Right wing because of their Nationalism and/or Racism.

Mao was very nationalist and racist against the Uighur Muslims and many other ethnic minorities in China, just as they are to this day.

Che, the champion of the modern day American Left, openly hated blacks, Jews and homosexuals while saying white Hispanics from European backgrounds are far superior. Here’s a few fun quotes from Che himself…

“The negro, those magnificent examples of the African race who have maintained their racial purity thanks to their lack of an affinity with bathing, have seen their territory invaded by a new kind of slave: the Portuguese.”

Che Guevara

“The negro is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving, which has pursued him as far as this corner of America and drives him to advance himself, even independently of his own individual aspirations.”

Che Guevara

“The episode upset us a little because the poor man, apart from being homosexual and a first-rate bore, had been very nice to us, giving us 10 soles each, bringing our total to 479 for me and 163 1/2 to Alberto.”

Antifa

Who are the real fascist?

“The Fascist of the future will call themselves anti-fascist.” -Unknown Author but quoted by Winston Churchill and later Ronald Reagan and other freedom lovers. When we look at the parallels between the American Left and actual Fascism, we see one group in particular who espouse many of the same ideologies and tactics of Mussolini and Hitler. Anti-capitalism, taking out the 1%, Neo-socialism, Redistribution of wealth, Free healthcare, Free university, State sanctioned workers rights, wages and benefits and State control over the means of production are all the cornerstones of the Fascist doctrine. These are the exact arguments that Gentile and Mussolini campaigned on and they are the exact same issues that Antifa complain about in the streets today. In the same sense, Mussolini had the “black shirts” while Hitler has his “brown shirts” who used the exact same tactics in the streets demonstrating, rioting and terrorizing in the same way. Are Antifa truly the “useful idiots” that Lenin described? I’ll end this paragraph with this Webster definition of terrorism…

Terrorism

ter·ror·ism /ˈterəˌrizəm/ noun: the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.

Conclusion

The Fascist leaders were inspired by former Leftist philosophers and leaders, used Leftist ideologies as the foundation of their Manifestos and later campaigned on and passed mostly Left wing policies. I used the word “mostly” because I don’t like to speak in absolute terms and I want to leave the possibility open that only 90% instead of 100% of their policies were Left wing. If you can find ANY Right wing policies, by all means please list them in the comments below. I wrote this post on the fly but would love to expand on it in the near future. I’ll leave the comments section open for criticism and debate but please keep it civil so we can enjoy hearing opposing opinions.
