What do you think about the world today?

There are 7 billion people on this Planet and less than 500,000 have the virus. It would be obvious to any person who has completed grade 10 at school that all efforts should go into testing so we can isolate the virus and eradicate it.

The Winds of Change

America you have always endured and within that endurance is your perseverance and optimism.

In 2011 I rode a Harley-Davidson from Los Angeles to New York and then onto Canada and finally to Denver Colorado. Today I found some poetry that I had written on my journey. I was going to copy into this page – instead I wrote this. For you America.

America you have always endured and within that endurance is your perseverance and optimism.

That is who you are America.

Never have thee failed that which is sought of thee,

Always to the fore your best, never to the rear do you flee

Now America an evil stalks your every shadow

Each sorrow of death a mighty blow as if you to strike you down

But no, not America – a land blessed with the heart of the mighty

The soul of the free and a trojan spirit of democracy

Stand as one and there is nought that can defeat thee

Your pride to be a Nation United never a Nation Divided

Godspeed America be as one do not let Evil defeat thee

For God gives blessing to those who stand beside him.

Why is humanity obsessed with chaos and destruction instead of hope and everlasting life?

We have all trusted our Governments. Covid-19 should be a lesson to us all. Question all decisions made by Governments for they like the media cannot be trusted to act in our best interests.

How can one survive in a ruthless world where there are only so many seats at the top, and innumerable people fighting for it?

Those who forsake humanity in order to achieve supposed greatness are usually unhappy in the knowledge that they can trust nobody and befriend only those they can buy.

By creating your own world in which you can enjoy your talents and abilities.

Those who forsake humanity in order to achieve supposed greatness are usually unhappy in the knowledge that they can trust nobody and befriend only those they can buy.

What is the point in being all powerful if you are powerless to make people like you unless you buy them.

Being ruthless means being greedy and selfish. Sure I want to be rich but not by the bodycount.

By ensuring you maintain ‘Principle and Integrity’ people will want to know you. Your words will be desired for their ‘ring of truth’.

When enough people want to know you because of your honesty and search for Justice and Equality then your World will have more value than that of the richest man in the World.

Being rich is no doubt better than being poor but being rich and dying alone – is that what life is all about?

What are some harsh life lessons the corporate world taught you?

The prostitution of economic ownership to the highest bidder has to all intent and purposes made Eunuchs of many of our Governments.

The harshest and most important for me has been that Corporate Globalisation is a threat to Nation State Economic Sovereignty.

The prostitution of economic ownership to the highest bidder has to all intent and purposes made Eunuchs of many of our Governments.

Global ownership of the movement of investment funds by powerful self-interested domineering groups who decide the how and when of Politics and Policy has created digit Labour that can be made non-existent at the press of a keyboard button.

I do not blame the Corporate. I blame the Government(s) for being weak, ineffective, intellectually challenged and lazy.

Instead of working to create dynamic vibrancy within their own economic systems they have sat back and watched the Globalization coup take over their countries.

I know I live in Australia. We were bought and sold a long time ago.

What is your message of kindness to the World.

To those who exploit our humanity for selfish gain there can be no kindness.

My message of kindness is that we should be kind to those who seek respect through their respect of others.

Those that do not respect humanity as mankind’s expression of its ability to practice that equality of respect should not receive any kindness.

Our World has become dominated by those who show little or no respect for others.

To those who exploit our humanity for selfish gain there can be no kindness.

In the World crime pays. In my world it does not.

Selfish Insanity Sydney NYE Fireworks

The NSW Government and Clover Moore the Mayor of Sydney who declared a Climate Emergency are spending approx $5.8 million on NYE fireworks. It is a selfish display in front of the whole world whilst the firefighters will be battling to save lives and property.

Why do people dislike people who tell the truth?

you want to know that you will be willing to sell your soul for water or have to leave behind a whole lifetime of memories as you flee the x disaster.

Honesty is brutal. We all are guilty of hiding from the truth. To confront the unbelievable as the believable is to examine one’s own reality of the World.

We build our reality of the World around us as a cocoon to absorb the shocks and keep out that which we do not want to hear.

That is why is so hard to get real change to the way we live our lives in order to reduce the negative effects of Climate Change.

We laugh off the warnings and shrug our shoulders in careless indifference.

We all know what is coming. It will be terrible; a Hell on Earth for so many.

Do you want to know that you will be willing to sell your soul for water or have to leave behind a whole lifetime of memories as you flee the x disaster.

Nobody wants to have to consider the unthinkable. We do not like the doomsters they confront our realisms, our hopes and our dreams. I know because I am a doomster.

What-are-some-basic-things-in-society-that-if-taken-away-would-send-the-world-into-chaos

As citizens we endow our Governments and their Agencies with our ‘trust and respect’.

https://www.quora.com/profile/Desmond-Last

The most important are ‘trust and respect ’ with their application being asserted with ‘Principle and Integrity’.

As citizens we endow our Governments and their Agencies with our ‘trust and respect’.

When they fail to ensure that they ‘listen and act’ on our needs and desires with an impartiality that ensures our democratic choice and safety is maintained then we question their ‘Principle and Integrity’.

Should our trust and respect of the State be such that we consider them to be no longer transparent and accountable civil disorder will become so prevalent that it will be the constant state.

That is what is happening around the World today and more so in the future.

In increasing numbers we no longer trust and believe our Governments and their Agencies.

The current constant state is that ‘Governments believe their own lies’ and we no longer can rely on their Principle and Integrity to safeguard our lives.

These ‘state of actions’ will lead to physical ‘things in society’ not being available and thus lead to total World chaos.

Food, water and shelter the basic components of any society will become so under threat from the extremes of Climate Change that Government will be unable to maintain its position in society without the use of force.
