The Challenge of Governanace

And the need for a new paradigm

We have all been born into a social and economic system that has been steadily becoming more corrupt, unjust and entrenched over the generations. Over the past 600 years or so Europeans have exploited the world by taking resources and dispossessing populations of their natural heritage. This form of profiting by theft, and the rules governing money have allowed the concentration of wealth in the hands of the less than 1%.

Today our world is ruled by capitalism and supposedly free markets, but these markets are not exactly free, they are tightly controlled as is our system of governance. We believe that we are living in a democracy, but like the Greeks

Oh So Liberal

But what is liberal?

The dictionary says that the liberals are those willing to respect or accept behaviour or opinions different from one’s own; to be open to new ideas concerned with broadening general knowledge and experience as opposed to technical or professional training.

According to Wiki, Liberalism is a political philosophy or world view founded on ideas of liberty and equality. Liberals espouse a wide array of views depending on their understanding of these principles, but generally they support ideas and programmes such as freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, free markets, civil rights, democratic societies, secular governments, gender equality, and international cooperation.

According to Student News Daily, Liberals believe

Politicking

And why things are the way they are

Most of us are familiar with ideas like politicians are the most untrustworthy species and that our world is in a mess due to their incompetence. But to understand why the world is the way it is and the failure of your political systems, we need to step back and summarise the evolutionary process that brought us to this point.

It’s fairly well known that we evolved from hunter gatherer tribes where sometimes one person was the leader and sometimes decision-making was more democratic. There is no one fits all description but things changed more quickly with the advent of agriculture and perhaps more importantly, the use of money and the development

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.

In

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

Life of Jesus

A tale without proof

The Mustard Seed: Commentaries on the Fifth Gospel of Saint Thomas

From the history so far, Jesus with his family may have been to Egypt and returned to Nazareth by the time he was aged 10 to 15. Nothing is know of him other than that Luke tells that Jesus was found teaching in the temple by his parents after being lost at age 12.

It seems unlikely that an intelligent boy would get lost in a small town, it’s more likely hewas developing strong ideas about life, existence and religion; namely Judaism and so he began testing his ideas on those who would listen and likely challenged the knowledge

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
