"Yes, I know what you mean Mat, which is why we should never be carrying a gun or be standing near any kind of button when angry.
And thank you David for all your comments too. It's really hard to trust Trump and his inner circle with one…"
"Our refuge in government is refuge in military bureaucracy - that's an interesting thought, Rob. Thanks.
And yes, after the exchanges prompted by Susthama here, much the same thought was on my mind: that what the shadow of war really presents…"
"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…"
"Yes, I know what you mean. The big political goings on are like a larger than life theatre that reflects the same bombu nature back to us as we encounter in smaller ways (though to each of us personally feeling larger) every day."
"With so many lives presently overshadowed by a handful of foolish beings and their bombast, this seems trivial, but today has pressed upon me how much conflict flows within my own life. The thought came reading this thread earlier, and as if my life…"
"With Cuba, Khrushrev did a deal. US took missiles out of Turkey in return for Russia taking missiles out of Cuba. Of course, the Western press only publicised one half of the deal. In this present situation the parallel question would be to do with…"
"Judging by the number of cruise missiles that were successfully destroyed in the Syrian attack I expect that even if North Korea as nuclear weapons and a method of delivery that these would be destroyed in the many thousands of kilometres to the USA…"
"Yes, it is alarming. Trump has found that he can regain some of the popularity that he was losing by doing spectacular things on the world stage. He seems to like making big bangs that then get talked about approvingly on US TV. In the Korean…"
I am going to bed wondering if war will break out on the Korean Peninsula. Scary prospect bordering on unthinkable.

On the day that England and Wales voted to leave the European Union, I am starting this group as a place for political comment. The aim is to create a space where all and any issue of current affairs in the world can be discussed from a spiritual perspective.See More
"It was lovely to see you over the weekend but very strange for you to be without your family I hadn't realised you had had such an adventure on your journey to Malvern. Shiro is nearly 22 now but your words have transported me back 20 years to…"
