Xmas nears. 2000 yrs. progress?? the squeaky-clean West is now exposed as a power which installs & buttresses #prowesterndictators thruout the Third World, who oppress & impoverish their people. We rubber stamp their fake elections.
Now also we find out that not only are our governments oppressing impoverishing and killing foreigners in foreign lands we presume for financial gain which however never trickles down to us, our governments are also oppressing us by spying and by punishing the poor & unemployed for the crime of “not being rich”.
We live in times where we can only expect that our future incomes and standard of living, and that of our children and grandchildren will be less than what we ourselves experienced just a few years ago before things started to go so badly wrong.
We are told by our supposedly independent and free media that “there is no alternative” – that austerity must and will continue for 50 years into the future. We see however that the rich seem to be enjoying their lives, just as our hopes and dreams turn into nightmares.
Opposition politicians seem to think and behave just the same as the politicians who are in power and who seem to be misusing that power. They offer no hope – even if we vote the existing bunch out then nothing will change substantially. Those politicians who do offer something different seem to be small minded racist and nationalist, at a time when a global vision and a pro-humanity outlook seems to be required.
