Robert McCarthy replied to David Brazier's discussion THE BIGGEST DANGER IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW in the group WAR & PEACE
"And just for a little more pepper all of what you wrote David is placed in a time scale when Trump must be aware of likely impeachment and prison even while he holds the us forces, including all the nukes, in his supposedly tiny hands."

Robert McCarthy replied to David Brazier's discussion THINGS ARE MOVING ALONG QUICKLY NOW in the group WAR & PEACE
"A bitter man given power by a bitter electorate, that explains so much. It so needs saying that the US leaving the Paris accord is all about hegemony and not ecology.  The accord regarding limiting temperature rise to 1.5 Celsius is a…"

"Likely the essence of current global problems goes back to the 70s when greed promotion by corporations and governments went on steroids; the capitalist economies needed very greedy populations to thrive and we bore the onslaught through…"

"Well Donald Trump fresh from a big arms deal with the Saudis is off to Brussels.  I suspect he will be getting asked quite a few questions.  Yes, economic and military cooperation growing between China, Russia and Europe will massively…"

"There is a substantial blockage in the way of China and Russia cooperating ever more closely and it is Siberia... . Resource rich, population small and neighbours with resource poor and population huge China."

Robert McCarthy replied to David Brazier's discussion THE NEWS QUESTIONS THIS MORNING in the group WAR & PEACE
"Machiavellian as a term would have to cede to Trumpian if Trump was planted as a fifth columnist.  The greatest act of political skulduggery would have to be that inside Trump is a cool calculating effective soviet agent who knows discretion…"

Robert McCarthy commented on David Brazier's group WHAT ARE YOU READING?
"I have not been reading books for a few years but was camping with a few friends and browsed a little of a book from an Israeli historian named Harari. I was rather interested and borrowed his two recent and very popular books Homo Sapiens and…"

Robert McCarthy replied to David Brazier's discussion HOLD YOUR BREATH - French Election in the group WAR & PEACE
"Liberalism has only been in the ascendancy, albeit meteorically, since the USSR collapse just over a generation ago.  It has held power with reliance on empty slogans that have somehow and to me very oddly captivated bourgeois sentiment-…"

Robert McCarthy replied to Susthama Kim's discussion CELEBRATING KIM IL SUNG'S ANNIVERSARY in the group WAR & PEACE
"It is easier to view North Korea as one homogenous and vast military bureaucracy than to view the global culture in the same light. Our refuge in government is refuge in military bureaucracy; we are generally saved from seeing the consequences too…"

Robert McCarthy replied to David Brazier's discussion ALL BACKTO NORMAL NOW IN WASHINGTON in the group WAR & PEACE
"It is rather karmic to promise a revolution to the angry, the disillusioned, to  the white supremacy mob; and use the power gained to further cement the status quo. I talked in an earlier post about directing hatred.  Seems Trump has…"

Robert McCarthy replied to David Brazier's discussion SYRIA: DO I SMELL A RAT? in the group WAR & PEACE
"Directing hatred is the essential element of a thriving western democracy.  This is the most cohesive state of capitalism. Trump won the election by very clever directing of hatred, he outsmarted all opposition. Racism, sexism, homophobia,…"

The whole thing turned out very well. The temple in Malvern is very comfortable and the location superb. It is difficult to convey the quality of interaction between people to those who were not there -…

COMPASSION FOR OUR WORLD

Posted by David Brazier on June 1, 2017 at 14:00 1 Comment

I suppose that for many people politics seems something rather remote. For me, it is always close to my heart. Not that I strongly support this or that party, but because the issues are of such consequence.

Over my lifetime I have watched as a pivotal region of the world has been systematically wrecked and ruined. Beautiful, cosmopolitan, multi-religious…
