Viva La Cuba
Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz 1926 – 2016 led a daring revolution and protected his country from the mob.
In the week following the passing of Fidel Castro, much of the world’s media was filled with scornful opinions. Some deride him because he was a nonconformist, or because it’s reported that he has 14 children and was something of a womaniser. Others deride him because he kept his country from progressing, but all of these people are largely ignorant and self glorifying themselves in their own opinions.
In the era of the revolution, the USA was hard at work replacing democratically elected governments all over the world with tyrannical kiss-arse regimes that allowed US corporations to drain their

The winds of change
In a country of 2.3 billion people where corruption thanks to foreign intervention has long been institutionalised, the government faced a huge challenge. Because many previous governments have for so long has often worked against the interests of the people, a huge black market developed that some say is greater than the officially recognised economy.
This separate economy has for years been a drain on the official economy and is one of the reasons why the welfare of the nation has lagged behind the rest of the world. For people who are honest, those who declare their income and pay their modest amount of tax, this move is being celebrated.
According Indian media websites, this music

An opportunity for humanity suppressed
1 acre of hemp that takes less than six months to grow can be used to produce as much paper as it takes 4 acres of trees which takes 50 years to grow
For tens of thousands of years, hemp has been used all around the world in a wide range of products from foods, medicines, rope, clothing and even plastics. It is a very versatile crop that grows almost anywhere and it even improves the soil in which it grows.
It was widely used throughout the world to the 1930s when the oil industry was beginning to boom and they discovered that they could make plastics from oil. But hemp oil is also

What future do our children have?
The toxic residues produced by industry over the past 2000 years have been conveniently overlooked. The Romans infamously used lead pipes and the lead drove them insane. More recently we switched to copper pipes but then it was discovered that as copper ages, the oxidised copper is harmful to our health and these were replaced with galvanised steel which were too expensive and today most people use plastic which presents another set of problems.
Modern society is driven by desires and some of them like access to clean water are vitally important whereas the desire for profits or to have the same stuff as one’s neighbours is totally

The rotten heart of a superpower

Many of the values of western civilisation come about through competition and perceived basic needs for survival which stand in the way of higher thinking and natural evolution. If we look back over history we can see how greed and desire have shaped the world.
As several hunter gatherers people had to stick to the facts because life depended on those facts, but today the world is awash in ideas and attractive physical stuff or glamour. People are competing to have others buy into their ideas and have people buy their stuff so much so that institutions have been established to buy and sell

What would it look like?
It’s already here, you just haven’t noticed
The idea of a one world government is the idea of one common political authority for all of humanity ending borders and all currencies but one. It has been much talked of and such a government could come into existence either through violent and compulsory world domination, or through peaceful and voluntary supranational union.
Adolf Hitler wanted to rule the world through violent conquest and fortunately he was stopped although when we look at the world today with all its conflict and suffering, life may have been little different and not necessarily any worse at least for the select few with some autonomy over their lives.

A mastermind directing world economics
It’s reported in many media sources that George Soros and other rich liberals spent tens of millions of dollars trying to elect Hillary Clinton and are paying protesters to make trouble against Donald Trump by sponsoring the riots and protests we’ve seen in the news. Yet for many years, Soros has been involved in the transformation of the world economy, the impoverishment of the working classes and empowering the rich to loot the world.
In thinking about this man and what he represents, we must remember that capitalism is all about taking things from the earth or perhaps we should say stealing because the raw materials for industry are never paid for.

An inversion of values
By lmsunshine94 @ Tumblr
In as much as very few people know the absolute truth of existence, humanity has always had a sense of what is true, what is untrue and the need for truth in a relative way. Our entire legal framework is established on the precept that there is some truth as to what happened in a particular situation and that truth must be revealed to establish innocence or guilt.
For the ordinary people, truth was that we must eat to live, we must reproduce to sustain the population and we must perform certain activities and behave in certain ways to maintain social harmony. Beyond this, any other idea such as the existence

The foundation of capitalism
Deash are thought to have abducted over 25,000 women (including young girls) & forced them into sex slavery. Some have been ‘claimed’ by fighters while others have been sold in markets since 2012.
The fact of life that we overlook is that in order for the modern world to exist and even for it to have come into existence, there must have been and there must always be someone to do the hard work.
No one really knows when slavery began and there are various forms of slavery which may have arisen with the hunter who was injured and unable to continue the hunt who probably become someone’s servant. But slaves range from those people

A key to sustainability and owning your own home
Access to shelter is a fundamental human right that has been taken form a large percentage of the population. In this modern world, human rights are written into public charters, yet the corporatism of local and national governments has nullified these rights.
Cooperative housing like any other protest must be done peaceably within the context of local laws as by any other means, the adventure will fail. One system that worked was for some of the Vietnamese escaping the Vietnam war. They landed on Australian beaches and were taken in as refugees, the Australian government gave them money, food and shelter. The people pooled their money and bought a house, several
