The just finished 4th of July celebration in America was nothing short of just another distraction for the masses to keep reality “out of focus.” It did nothing but further the illusion that Americans live in a “free and open” Republic governed by elected bodies of servants that follow a Constitution.
We will put aside the fact these “elected servants” are doing nothing but shredding the afore mentioned Constitution for discussion another day.
Our focus in this post will concentrate on how Governments world-wide give away the freedoms and rights of their citizens to the Global-Military-Industrial-Complex.
When Governments “contract out” various services they are not responsible for end results, nor do they have to be transparent about any intended or unintended consequences. It is like putting “a germ of Fascism” in a Petri Dish and watching it grow. A Perfect Tyranny experiment! The only problem is, it is not an experiment… it is today’s Reality for Humanity.
We offer a look at one of the biggest Global Government Contractors that impact your life every day without you knowing it. We start our report in the year 2009, when this Corporation started to really gain traction and attention. We will end with everything right up-to-date 2016 with the following Videos and Commentary.

The next phase of our report moves to 2013
Serco has been labelled the “biggest company you’ve never heard of”. It’s a private company, holding a huge number of government contracts for public services — everything from nuclear weapons defenses to out of hours doctors services. Serco is a UK company but has a global reach and chances are it’s running services near you.
And now for 2016. The following video was just released by Serco as a business recruiting tool and of course the all important PR tool is not forgotten.
