    100 Years Later – The U-Turn towards ‘Patriotic’ Nationalism (#122)
    A Century has passed since the end of the First World War. On November 11, 2018 the World remembered the signing of the ‘Armistice’ that ended one of the bloodiest and most horrific systematic slaughters, undertaken by humans against other humans, inspired by hyper-nationalism, a full 100 years ago. The times were such that some of the populations of the opposing nations (and their colonies) - Britain, France, Russia (on one side), and Germany, Austria and Italy (on the other side), all engaged

    America Makes A Mid-Term Deal with the Devil - Trump (#121)
    The American November 6th, 2018 Mid-Term Elections were a kind-of referendum on America’s real character, and a chance to retreat, en-masse, from the two years of Trump insanity and vote for everything un-Trump-like – in other words vote for a return to truth, accountability, civility, free-press, inclusion, real democracy, racial equality, and unity. But unfortunately, America came up short and the American’s voted, by and large, in favor of continuing bigotry, racism, inequality,

    A Brief Report Card of Trump’s Term – So Far (#120)
    To the Donald Trump hardcore support base; he can do no wrong. And, in the defense of his pathological lying, disruption, divisiveness, and sheer ineptness as a World leader, the rational given for their continuing support, are his supposedly amazing accomplishments since he became President. So, days before the ‘Mid-Term elections’, we thought a quick assessment of his major promises made during his  2016 campaign, and the accomplishment of them so far were certainly warranted. It has to be

    The Darkening of the Global Horizon – Courtesy Trump (#119)
    The decades following the end of the Second World War have been generally globally progressive, peaceful, and for most countries, a time of increasing prosperity and therefore an age of advances in learning, technology, productivity, international integration, and measurable mitigation of global ignorance and poverty; in other words, all things considered, a golden age of peace and prosperity. But as is typical of the human species, to somewhat slow our evolution and prove and give reign to our

    Trump At the U.N. – World Leaders Laugh, & Disagree (#118)
    The United States President, Donald J. Trump, addressed the United Nations Assembly in New York on Tuesday September 25th, 2018 and was laughed at for his embarrassing need for exaggerated self-promotion. His insistence that globalization, nations uniting to work on global issues such as trade, climate change and conflicts, was evil, and only independent patriotic nationalism was the new solution, showed a shocking lack of historic perspective, as did his insensitivity to being in and addressing

    The World in Flux – As It Keeps Turning (#117)
    These past weeks have been eventful to say the least, what with the recent divisive funeral of Senator John McCain, pitting the heroic uniting force of John McCain against the derisive, divisive forces of Donald Trump; the contentious NAFTA negotiations between the threatening Donald Trump instructed U.S. negotiators and the defiant Canadian government; the shocking riots and rise of the neo-Nazi’s in Germany; the increasing heavy-handedness of India’s Hindu Nationalists as they trample on

    Canada - In the Age of the Bully Nations (#116)
    The plaintive statement “We don’t have a single friend” as a headline on an article in a major news organization caught our attention. Upon reading the article, it was a bit surprising to know that the statement referred to Canada as being abandoned by its many allies and friends around the World, in its bizarre diplomatic spat with Saudi Arabia. The rather dramatic statement was attributed to Rachel Curran, a policy director under the former conservative government of Canadian PM Stephen

    The Big Tent of Lies - & Trump Follies (#115)
    No U.S. President in recent history is as shameless in promoting himself as Donald J. Trump, or lies as much. And, no previous President has as shamefully trashed his predecessors in such shameful language so as to make most of the civilized World cringe. He amply displayed his utter lack of social graces when announcing the American pullout from the multi-country Iran Nuclear Deal. In his twisted mind Trump thinks that by denigrating the actions of the previous Presidents verbally, he lifts

    A Dream for Some – Despair and Death for Others (#114)
    On May 14, 2018, the graphic images streaming from Jerusalem and from Gaza showed two very different Worlds. One was of raw entitlement, privilege and power, and even claims of manifestation of Divine Prophecy, and the other, of abject squalor, hopelessness, desperate despair, and helplessness in the face of ruthless, merciless, purposeful maiming and death. As some in Israel and America celebrated the long awaited U.S. Embassy move to Jerusalem as the culmination of a dream come true, a wail
