The Scourge of Modern Slavery
It is said that people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed. This is understandable but it gives pause for thought as to how much our opinions are shaped by propaganda and self-deception. Human bondage conjures up images of enslavement of Africans by Europeans. However, since its ‘abolition’ in 1807 by Europeans the scourge of slavery has increased. Slavery is now widespread and by association we are all sweatshop slave owners. Of 53 movies, mostly Hollywood productions, no less than 45 are based on African slavery. Needless to say ethnic African involvement in the capture and trade of their own countrymen is brushed aside.No Cease-Fire For Chemical Weapons
Tens of thousands of Greeks recently protested against their waters being used as a convenient dumping ground for Syria’s chemical weapons. One can hardly blame them for rejecting the United States-led decommissioning plan. It could be a case of too little too late. Most will be familiar with the Palomares incident in 1966 that involved a U.S. Air Force B-52 bomber and airborne tanker. The collision resulted in its deadly cargo of H-bombs plummeting to earth. The area affected was covered in fine radioactive dust. Today vast areas of effected land is still off limits. The U.S. never did cough up to pay for the ongoing clean-up. There is no time limit to the effects of chemical weapons. After World War Two tens of thousands of tonnes of chemical weapons were dumped in seas around Europe.Cities Sprawl Higher
The future of urban living is rising, and to ever-greater heights, across the Middle and Far East. It is unclear when the West will catch up.Terror and the Police Response
Recent terrorists attacks in Paris and elsewhere have provoked concern and discussion on the need for awareness and on the necessity to be prepared for such attacks. The discussions include consideration at the highest levels of governments on the response to such attacks. At a national level police and military services are no doubt taking cognizance of the threats and introducing additional training methods and tactics that will assist in countering such attacks at local and national level. New methods and strategies are called for in the light of the indiscriminate level of violence visited on communities and groups and the terrorist activities require a response that differs from traditional policing methods.Who Is Behind the Bank Robberies
Many believe the Western economies have been hijacked by banking cartels aided by political accomplices. This time the bank raiders are banksters not gangsters. The wealth of many Western nations has been vacuumed up by harsh interest rates and billions in tax funded government bailouts. Accumulative bank interest adds 40% to the cost of everything we and the government buy. A rebellious Greek Prime Minister once decided on a referendum allowing the Greeks to choose between financial independence or Federal Reserve Bank usury. From democracy to bankocracy; the maverick politician was ousted in a coup and a Goldman Sachs director parachuted in. This Wall Street bank is largely held complicit in the mismanagement of the European Union’s failing banking systemAn Overlooked Cause of EU, UN and US Problems Needing a Biblical Solution
Human wisdom tends to centralization and building big government. The European Union isn’t working well, and it’s an omen for what’s coming under UN control. There’s better information that could help us avoid serious trouble.Why God Placed The World Into The Hands of 666
Those who are spiritual and have grown strong enough to ignore the things of the world and to listen to the voice within are now being called away from religious influence. Those who are not spiritual and who believe in what the false prophets teach are the one’s suffering God’s retribution.666 Controls The World By What He Did Almost 2,000 Years Ago
Most cannot escape the glue of religion and so they are locked into the ways of the world. Those who are spiritual, however, are coming away from the false gods in droves and are finding peace, healing, and greatness in the Spirit.Cleansing The World Of Evil And The Mess It Involves
When one cleans one also makes a mess as the rubbish is ripped out of the site. This is what is now happening in the world as huge migrations take place and God is cleansing the vineyard of weeds and destructive forces so that the spiritual children of Israel will receive their inheritance.More Flood Defences: Why Not Assist Relocation?
Once again, parts of Britain have been inundated by exceptionally heavy storms that overwhelmed flood defences built only a few years ago and designed to protect against the highest flood expected in a hundred years or more. In parts of Cumbria, the home of England’s celebrated Lake District, some towns and villages have been flooded twice, or even thrice, within a month. While the individuals affected have borne this hardship with their customary stoicism, there has been criticism in the media of the inadequacy of existing flood defences and calls for greater expenditure on more elaborate schemes. In view of the fact that global warming is said to be increasing the risk of such exceptional meteorological phenomena, would it not be better to put more emphasis on the relocation of habitations to higher ground?
