As we look around our world today, it’s filled with so much pain, poverty and injustice. We have an opportunity to make our planet proud, but instead we justify the destruction of lives: human, animal, aquatic and vegetation in the name of greed (money), power and one commodity (oil). Countries that have nuclear arsenals and clout including USA, UK and Canada have misused their power which greatly created hardship for less powerful countries. Any country that has oil reserves becomes targets under the guise of creating a democratic society when in fact, their country will be left torn and marginalized because of the so-called freedom/liberation.
As we look around our world, instead of countries becoming more peaceful and progressive, they are becoming more marginalized and archaic. Brazil, Venezuela, Guyana, Libya, Syria, Iraq, etc. What do these countries all have in common? They were liberated by the so called body of democracy – the ABC nations (America, Canada and UK) with the approval of the UN. Justifiable, countries like Ethiopia, Congo, Sierra Leone, etc. needs liberation from the atrocities (starvation, malnutrition, child mutilation, poverty, Boko Haram, etc.) that takes place daily, yet nothing is being done to help them. Their stories hardly make the international news. Why, because there is nothing to gain financially for saving innocent lives. The lives of African men, women and children are not worth saving because there is no financial gain…
Here in the USA, the Electoral College has elected Trump, a racist, sexist, bigoted, homophobic, misogynistic, Putin-owning man-child as its next leader. Our government turns a blind eye to the nepotism, conflict of interests and security threats that are hemorrhaging from Trump’s administration. America, the giant among nations is gambling on a radical babbling buffoon as its leader of change. Really?
At the bottom of it all, what’s the cost of this and who stand to benefit the most? These politicians are using human lives as bargaining chips, who will use theirs? What’s also pathetic are the people that voted for Trump – we are walking, working and living alongside folks with racist, homophobic, sexist mentalities.
I’m beyond disgusted and sad.
