And the mass hysteria

Pope Francis was recently reported a saying “a person who thinks only about building walls were ever they may be, and not a building bridges, is not a Christian.” Yet the Vatican city is surrounded by an almost impenetrable wall.
The idea of a wall or a more impenetrable fence than what exists between the USA and Mexico has received a huge outcry of protest yet no one has protested the wall between Mexico and Guatamala or the new wall turkey is building between itself and Syria.
The new US president has placed a temporary ban on refugees and travellers from a handful of countries identified as being high risk by

There’s an old family catchphrase that ‘your mother knows best’ that is often used in conjunction with ‘ask your mother’ or ‘ask your father’. Mother knows best as a phrase used to placate women in the patriarchal society whereas ask your mother or ask your father a fundamental phrases indicating blindness to the truth and an avoidance of responsibility.
The way of live for people of the USA has been to modulus, they stole the land they now occupy, exterminated around 100 million people and began to create an idealistic new existence based on liberty and freedom without any sense of guilt for their crimes

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

The new face in world poitics
Following the result of the 2016 US presidential election, humanity has breathed a sigh of relief because the march of imperialism and Lordship over the world population, not just the USA, but the entire world has been at least temporarily put on hold until the soon-to-be president trumps policies start to come through.
Most pundits say that the United States people just became sick and tired of being abused and disempowered by successive governments, they become sick and tired of the government the wages war in many countries and brings the country into disrepute is the obnoxious bully in the playground.
It has been mostly the US administration that has orchestrated

The Philippines stands up to the world
The USA has dominated the world for the past 60 or so years, it’s economic, military and social policies have been forced on most nations and often at the point of a gun. The Philippines is no exception, US troops evicted the Spanish over 100 years ago giving the Filipinos hope of independence. But the Americans refused to go away until their political policies had become entrenched.
Up until World War II, the Philippines was a very inconspicuous nation easily overrun by the Japanese who again were evicted by the Americans and Filipino militias. When the war was over the Americans turned the Pacific back to the US’s ‘big backyard’ and of

And the decline of an empire

The USA does not portray itself as an empire, rather it portrays itself as the world’s policeman toppling dictators and fostering in democracy. While this is the official line that a vast number of people have been led to believe, it is far from the truth.
I don’t recall the logic behind the US invasion and eviction of the Spanish from the Philippines, but this was the first theatre in which the US demonstrated its power to the world beyond its own borders. In the Philippines, the people were initially appreciative that the US had helped to send off the Spanish, that when the US refused to leave the

And the politics of profit
Richard Branson made headlines some time ago with his declaration that the UN was about to announce a recommendation to end the war on drugs, however this seems to have been a misunderstanding because the UN was only talking about decriminalising the possession of small amounts of drugs as a partial solution to help stop the spread of HIV.
Drug use is seen by many as an antisocial epidemic, but for the majority of people, it’s just another crime or taboo so why do people use drugs?
In ancient tribal cultures, drugs were used to open the windows of perception and develop altered states of consciousness. The Shamen were able to connect with the movement

A troubled nation
He’s a guy fairly representative of the country, smiling like nothing’s wrong when everything is totally wrong.
We are so used to the USA being in the news for all the wrong reasons that no one really takes much notice any more ,and those who do notice either laugh or contemplate what might be in it for them.
It seems that the US plans for the Middle East have quietly come unstuck with the intervention of Russia and the Syrian crisis, a situation that most evidence indicates was created by the US. Now that Russian, Turkish and Iranian relations are sweetening, many US warmongers will be scratching their heads wondering what to do next and some

The worlds most misunderstood disease
No one is sure how long modern humans have lived on earth. Some suspect that it may have only be 200,000 years, and while we have survived, it’s debatable if we have actually evolved. We have figured out what it takes to survive physically and technically, but we have always been at odds about what it takes to survive intellectually and emotionally.
We know that we have a fundamental desire to be happy, and we know that happiness comes from the fulfilment of our desires. Yet for a great many people, the fulfilment of those desires is dependent on other people’s compliance, unhappiness and sometimes even their termination.
There was a time when we simply

The US out of bounds
In this morning’s news, it is reported that the USA is sending a contingent of special forces into Syria to support the rebels fighting against President Assad. While the US and UK planned a regime change in Syria and other Middle Eastern countries are perhaps 15 years ago it is only coming to fruition in Syria now. But they underestimated the stubbornness of President Bashir al-Assad and the Syrian people.
President Bashar al-Assad is still the legitimate leader in Syria and before this uprising that was sponsored by the USA and its allies, Syria was a magnificent country, like Iraq before the US led invasion, there was a high degree of social equity and prosperity.
