HISTORY – WILL OUR WORLD EVER LEARN FROM PAST MISTAKES?


Watching what is happening not only here in our country but in the world it really seems that we are truly doomed to never learn from history and continue to make the same mistakes leading to the same end results- either wars or depressions or both and although yes, those whose greed precipates this never ending cycle lose everything the real loser are the masses and our earth.

Imagine if instead the world actually learned history and learned how not to make the same mistakes? What if we the masses realized that we can change the outcome after all we are 99% of the worlds population and we truly do hold the real power of numbers. They say only 88 people hold over 60% of the worlds wealth and that number may be even higher now- think of it- there are over 7 billion people in our world and only 88 people hold that much wealth and 50 of those reside in our country.

Yet too much of our world lives in abject poverty and 3rd world conditions and it seems our country is intent on giving us 3rd world conditions. My question is why do we allow it? Why do we stand by all through history and not take action before it reaches wars and depressions and revolutions? If you know history then you know all the scenerios that transpire like the the French revolution and the two world wars and the great depression to mention the last few times.

So why then do we as a civilization continue to refuse to learn from history………

THE DRUMS OF WAR


If like myself you have been following what is happening in the world, then you are probably as frightened as I am. With an idiot in charge of the country who uses twitter as his foreign policy and dictators like those in N.Korea and Russia then you have the start of WW3. Russia has moved artillery and misiles to the border of N.Korea and
china has also moved ships in behind the American ships and of course we have the lunatic in N. Korea who is quite eager to start a war and of course the
idiot in charge of our country is quite happy to also start a war.
t
Then we have faux news ready to sound the drums of war. At the same time in Turkey they are voting to give their own dictator more powers and of course their is the philliphines with their own elected idiot.

Will it come to war- I so hope not, but looking at history and watching what is happening all over the world, then the stage is certainly being set for a world war and if that happens then it has the possibility to end our civilization as the nuclear weapons will surely be used and/or EMP strikes which would shut down our whole grid including our internet and cell phones- basicly sending us back in time.

If we had a normal president and a normal congress then there would not be a chance of this happening, but nothing is normal in our country or the world.

What can we the people do about this- not really sure but we do need to be informed and prepared. Best solution would be for this whole administration and those in congress who are in collusion with the treasonous actions to be removed from office and hold a new election. Of course that would be a normal outcome and there is nothing normal about our government or for that fact our country with the trump cult followers ready to follow their ‘lord’ no matter what and a corporate owned media who salivates at the prospect of war-

I do believe though that there is still time to stop this- anyway I hope so. I have 13 grandchildren who I want to have a future and one that does not include wars.

Peace

THIS IS NOT NORMAL


I think the biggest mistake anyone can make at this time is to consider this normal. Its not normal to have a president conduct foreign policy using his twitter account. Its not normal to appoint people to cabinet positions who wish to destroy the department they now head. Its not normal to have an administration with provable ties to a foreign government and its not normal to have a party in congress who are also tied to that same foreign government and try their hardest to foil any investigations. Its not normal for a president to give over control of the military to the military and not be in control of which country to bomb and what to use. Is not normal for a president to go every weekend to a business he owns and then charge the government for the secret service for the golf carts they need to rent and then charge the government for their food and lodging and have all that money go into trump coffers. None of this is normal.

Its not enough to protest and blog and email and call our congressional
reps and senators- We need to keep saying over and over that this is not normal.

We need to take a stand and stick up for what is right and for the programs and institutions that we count on. We need to call out the media for normalizing any of this.

Its only been a hundred days and already one botched raid
on yemen and missles on Syria and the biggest bomb short of nuclear on Afghanistan and now warships on their way to N. Korea.

We are watching the most corrupt administration our country has ever seen and the destruction piece by piece of our government.

THIS IS NOT NORMAL

Peace and may your easter holiday be one of joy

THE AGE OF TRUMP


In the future historians will look back on this time much like the time of Hitler. Am I saying that trump is Hitler- no but this is a time much like then with the possibility of wars and global depression caused by a man that should never been allowed to be president. I think it says it best that when Merkel from Germany met with Trump, the media described Merkel as the head of free countries and not our idiot of a president.
b

Its not just our country that is going down a dark path as it started with Bruit in the UK and with the rise of right wing populists like LePen in France and the rise of ruthless dictators like Putin in Russia and Turkey and Egypt to name a few. The election in the Philippines of an idiot much like Trump also adds to the instability of our world.

The use of fear and racist feelings to govern is not new and it has been seen in the past and it never ends well.

Sometimes I just want to bury my head in my covers and ignore what is happening but of course that won’t help. Its important to resist what is happening and to use the advantages of social media and the internet which enables me to write this blog and to educate others of the coming perils of the age of Trump.

We can not be silent and we can not just sit idly by and think everything will be okay because its not okay and its only going to get worse. We can learn from history and not make the same mistakes hopefully.

Resist and join the different resistance groups available. I blog on some other sites and have joined several Facebook resistance groups. I love reading and researching so use the internet often.
