Our Choices

The wise words of Martin Luther King still apply across the world. Choices and strategic vision determine the nature of our existence. Choices can lead to transformation of peoples, systems, societies, nations and relationships between nations. Should we engage in Healing and with society ? should we bring healing to social issues, economic issues, political issues, human rights issues ? should we join organisations and groups committed to healing in all of it's forms, social justice, economic justice, human rights ? or should we ignore everything, do nothing, and just complain ? or should we waste time watching television or on the Internet or on social media ? or waste time in bars ? should we work together to build Heaven on Earth or let others continue building Hell on Earth ? What does human history teach us - the conflicts, wars, tyrannies, genocides, high crime rates, social injustices, crashes, folly and national bankruptcies, insane greed, corruption, hateful tribalistic divisions, etc. of the 20th century and early part of the 21st century have taught us what ? We can and must all work together to build deep healing within people and between peoples, and deeper, lasting peace based on healing, universal brotherhood and justice in the 21st century. You can begin this today.

No Money or Plenty of Money ? which is it ?
The global cost of bailing out the banks and financial institutions between 2007 and 2014 was $13 trillion (Andrew Haldane, Bank of England estimate), and the global value of the arms trade is $2 trillion per year. This amounts to $15 trillion wasted on corrupt special interests and the promoting of mass murder, slaughter, financial frauds and criminality. In 2015, the value of the Derivatives market, which is pure financial speculation was over $710 trillion (Bank for International Settlements) ; this is over 10 times the global economy. The cost of giving all persons on the planet adequate health care and a decent wage is $86 billion per year (http://www.anielski.com/real-cost-eliminating-poverty/). This figure of $86 billion is very small fraction of the $14.75 trillion wasted on corruption and special interests. It is 0.5% of the amount. Considering the trillions of dollars wasted on speculation, bailouts of banks and speculators, and mass slaughter and war, there are plenty of financial resources and money to build justice, social and political stability and peace on earth.
