Freedom of Information ?
Currently there is a trend of societies questioning the authoritive bodies that are in control of their destiny. The extreme cases,Iran,egypt,tripoli, have been at great risk to the individuals gathered to peaceably protest their Leadership (or lack thereof). Why is this happening?
To be honest, this plight has taken place over a 45,000 year history, numerous times. It is the plight of EQUALITY. Simply not possible in our earlier capacity. We formed packs and hunted larger animals working in groups, i.e. American Indians on a buffalo hunt, Africans hunting elephant, Pigmy’s hunting monkeys. Evolved into farming and social structure. Our Governmental structure has evolved as well. Gone are Kings and Queens, Autocrats, Emperor’s. When Our Very Forefathers took this plight on, you can be amazed at their concern over HUMAN ABUSE OF POWER. Our Governmental structure consists of checks and balances. The Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches share EQUAL power…How Wise, for power left unchecked WILL be abused.
I know that librarys in the past have been burned to the ground. Conquer a people, burn their librarys, make them ignorant, have your dirty work done by conquered slaves, nice trade off. But if they get an education, if their hunger for knowledge is sustained by a mere drip of knowledge from time to time, you will not effectively ‘break’ them of their desire for FREEDOM at ANY cost. This is seen time and time again by conquering forces.
The human will is strong and underestimated time and time again. How fitting that we should JUST Recently unlock the code within human chromosomes, yet we operate on a system of heirarchy not equality. With mankind now in charge of EVERY natural resource as well as our own genetic structure how can we not understand “WE ARE ONLY AS OOD AS THE LEAST AMONG US”. That true equality requires the support of one another. With our fear of a Nuclear bomb, a rogue state, Terrorism, Jihad, Global weather change, threats from disease, Gangs, Violence, Drug Abuse…..Should’nt we be enlisting the help of our very intelligent college students and proffessors on figuring out a “Global” solution. An earthly community working together to propel the achievements of Man?
Egyptian citizens were holding hands to prevent their National treasures from being stolen. This is not surprising to me. I firmly believe that for every thief in the world, there are 10 Honest men. I also believe we’ve advanced enough to share more knowledge. In comes the internet. World Governments feared the worse immediately. Knowledge IS power, so like it or not, we will soon share more than we could possibly imagine.
This transition could go so smoothly, but it won’t. People are soo resistant to change. Civil Rights has’nt been but 40 years. Women have only had the Right to vote for 91 years. We have a statue that reads ” Giveme your tired, your weak, those yearning to breathe Free…….and now we fight over building a Wall, are you shitting me.
The answer to our Gang and Violence problem lie in their source, Drug Traffiking. Massive amounts of ‘collateral’ lie in the ‘unregulated’ global drug market. UNREGULATED CASH FLOW, can you say ‘EVIL EMPIRE’? Is’nt money the ROOT of ALL EVIL? How can we let this volume of money go unregulated? Because Regulating it would require Legalizing it and the Pharmaceutical companys are in a position to lose Billions if that were to happen so they simply lobby to keep this ‘war’ raging on. How Foolish!
Now that information is quickly shared and unregulated by way of the internet, inequality has been served a death notice. People are rising in every corner of the globe to be treated equally, to be given opportunity, to raise a family in love, in a community of love, in a global environment of servitude NOT SURITY. Here’s some hebrew advice, Exodus 22:25
If you lend money to My people, to the poor among you, you are not to act as a creditor to him; you shall not charge him interest.
Now in case a countryman of yours becomes poor and his means with regard to you falter, then you are to sustain him, like a stranger or a sojourner, that he may live with you. Do not take usurious interest from him, but revere your God, that your countryman may live with you. You shall not give him your silver at interest, nor your food for gain.
He who increases his wealth by interest and usury gathers it for him who is gracious to the poor.
You know I watched the Ceo’s from all three automaker’s have to carpool to their second arrival at Congress, because of overwhelming American Upheaval at the sheer audacity of these ‘fat cats’, flying leer jets to washington to ‘beg for financial assistance’. How do people buy cars when the market played the dollar out? These guys were scapegoats. Where were the ‘Wall Street Capitalists’? I still have’nt seen ONE, publicly charged, embarrassed, or simply fired. NOT ONE! WE have no manufacturing, and the only room for job growth is in an educated workforce, yet an education isnt affordable to half the population, jobs are stagnant, and drugs are unregulated and illegal, ripe conditions for our nations cottage prison industry.
Ladies and Gentlemen, a single minded selfish capitalistic mentality got us into this economic mess, only the open minded equality of ALL human bretheren striving together for the good of the entire human race can succeed in propelling us forward to love being ultimately victorious.Amen
