One World Order

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.

Islamophobia

And does it affect one’s health?

The term “Islamophobia” is defined as “an unfounded hostility towards Islam and Muslims”, yet what is called the religion of Islam demands of its followers that they enslave or kill every non Muslim. Therefore Islamophobia is an instinctive response to survive.

There is another quote “as we think, so we become.” This means that whatever we think and whatever we believe will have some consequences. For instance, the person who thinks that they are unworthy is unlikely to become successful in life. Yet the person who believes that they are ‘right’ can be successful regardless of the cost to people around them.

Humanity today is at crisis point. In most countries there is a

China on the move

China recently unveiled this god of war statue symbolising its new direction. A Tumblr image.

Western interest in China began in the 1620s and this country that was content within it’s own borders and economy had no interest in the rest of the world. There were of course Chinese sailors who ventured far from home but these travels were very limited and the most significant Chinese-Western relations occurred as the British East India company imposed itself on China causing the opium Wars and a consequent subjugation of China which some say it has not been forgiven.

In recent times we have seen China emerge as a economic and military superpower able to take on Europe

Our Changing World

A population explosion and dispossession

It’s estimated that by 2050 our population will be 9 billion and as we increase our numbers, we have arrived at that point in our history and our development where everyone is going to have to learn how to make do with less. As the ocean rises, it’s less land as we mess up the environment, it’s less food and water and yet we’re so well organised, we can all have smart phones.

But even the raw materials from which we make our devices are running out and we are already at the stage where we need another planet. People are already looking to the moon and Mars for those materials, but in a practical

Election 2016

Public disgrace as shit hits the fan

Remember them

We have had many years of American drama on our big and small screens, and in recent years real-life dramas have become popular and paved the way for a smooth transition into the real world politics and drama of the US elections.

In contrast we have had years of conspiracy theories and protesters crying out that the ‘king has no clothes’. The rich and powerful just laughed at the people and dismissed public concerns as they got on with playing politics and finance.

If we set this against the backdrop the past 120 years, all this political manoeuvring has resulted in a dozen wars and countless civil wars that

Politics and Health

Medicine is an experimental science

Health care as with every aspect of humanity is controlled and affected by Politics and Money. The politicians decide what health care we have access to, how much it will cost, and of course where there is money and power, we also get conspiracies.

Throughout history humanity has been structured with either leaders and followers or rulers and subjects, but what about democracy?

You may live in what you consider a democracy where you can vote for your government representative, but amongst millions, your vote means little and in many democracies governments are elected to rule with a very small percentage of the populations vote and for those who voted for other than the ruling

Global Health Spending

Recycling money away from real need

Washington, DC. Global health funding hit an all-time high of $31.3 billion in 2013, five times greater than in 1990. Yet with 3.9% growth from 2012 to 2013, the year-over-year increase falls short of the rapid rates seen over the previous decade, according to new research by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington being published online in a web first edition on April 8 by Health Affairs.

Health care costs keep escalating and everyone expects more from the health care dollar, but is this reasonable? The total world spending on health in 2003 according to the World Health Organization (WHO) was 10.2 percent of

What is Islam?

The religion of peace…?

Islam is believed to have been created by the Prophet Mohammed in the 6th century. It is said that he lived in Mecca, Saudi Arabia as a merchant.

No one knows why Islam was created: was it a valid spiritual experience, was it to civilize the Arabs? Or, was it to complete with Judaism and Christianity, or to partake in capitalism and the wealth represented?

The association with Islam today for most people is the war that has been going on in the Middle East for the past generation and it seems to be getting worse. But not only that, terrorist groups like ISIL and Al Shebab are openly declaring war on non-Muslims and even Muslims

So What about Islam?

And your new Muslim neighbours

It seems the only constant is change then yet we crave peace and stability. As such, we build our lives under the loose guise of democracy and religion that is supposed to ensure a degree of justice and social equity.

In some corners of the world, people have found this peace and stability although it has often come price. Prices have included defeating Germany in World Wars 1 and II. some people have been fortunate enough to buy a small slice of paradise only to be evicted by change.

It seems unlikely that they can ever be any absolute peace and certainly no life without change because the environment we live in is constantly

The New World Order

Will not be the paradise many imagine

Every new generation imagines a utopian world of peace and happiness. This is one of the primary motivators to do anything in life because we’ll have an inbuilt desire to excel, to do better and above all, to experience a great on us in terms of peace, happiness and joy.

This is a primary desire to not only survive, but to survive well which also means ensuring the survival of future generations. Unfortunately when such desire is built on the shaky foundation of ignorance and compounded by greed and stinginess, well we can see where that’s got us.

You could say that in part the Industrial Revolution was generated by the desire for
