The World’s top criminals, psychopaths and megalomaniacs of 2016

I can’t say it any better than has Sarah Gill.  This piece should ignite the ire of every caring, compassionate, clear-thinking, knowledgeable and intelligent This piece should ignite the ire of every caring, compassionate, clear-thinking, knowledgeable and intelligent person on this planet. Over the last day or two, I’ve been reading woeful commentary and postings which express deep concern for Queen Elizabeth II having a cold. The concern is that,…

Socially Manufactured Hate

Small minded, insular and ignorant people will probably always exist. Certainly, their numbers will not decrease unless and until we are led by honest, caring and selfless leaders who model integrity and explain the opportunity offered by differences in cultural traits and mores. We also need to recognise that schooling is *not* education and that the “3 r’s”, whilst providing a functional basis for life, do little to instil a…

Movement Against Police Violence Condemns Violence Against Police

America has a violent history, a racist history, and a gun culture. All of these factors contribute to the current unhealthy climate of prejudice, hatred, discrimination and mindless violence. The police have many dedicated officers who are sincere in their belief that they are an asset to the community and that enforcing the law is a positive, even essential asset for a civilised society. The black community and the poor…
