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.

They shoot horses don’t they?

I am totally depressed at the depth of world poverty and, even worse, the lack of compassion and caring shown by so many who have so much. I detest our materialistic, consumer orientated, profit before people society. I am disgusted by the unethical and immoral behaviour of so many of our politicians, including those at senior levels.

Terror : Extremism’s weapon against those who live …

We are also aware of the severe inequities in living standards, health, education, housing, access to water, sewerage and the like. We have seen, though not really acknowledged, the obscenity of 53 men and 9 women owning as much wealth as half of the World’s population, i.e 3.6 Billion people. Yes,…

Somali Islamic militants Al Shabaab use Donald Trump’s ‘Muslim ban’ speech in recruitment film.

War mongering, discriminatory, prejudiced and macho chest thumping is immature and unproductive. It is also dangerous. The possibility that someone as intellectually deficit as Donald Trump could become the President of the USA is frightening indeed for he embodies all of those characteristics. Trump’s diatribes and those of others with similar narrow-minded and self-serving views are a major threat to peace and well-being for all. It is such immoderate and…
