I’ll be travelling quite a bit so postings here will be few and far between. But before I go, may I ask you to take a serious look at what is happening in the world and to think what you can do about it.
If you don’t know this by now, let me be the first to tell you that the United States has been on a campaign to enrich themselves on the natural resources of other nations since the Spanish-American War. As a result of that war, the Philippines was ceded by Spain and became America’s first attempt at this campaign when an emissary was sent to catalogue what the country had worth exploiting.
From agricultural products to energy sources, the United States have labelled the natural resources of other countries as America’s national interests. They have gone to war, provoked civil unrest and destroyed the socio-economic and political structures of sovereign nations in order to maintain these interests in American hands.
But the majority of people do not see this and most Americans are blindly patriotic, the result of mainstream media manipulation by those in power. Propaganda, disinformation, and one other unspeakable reason: threats to life and livelihood issued to mainstream journalists, facts and certain events that are detrimental to the cause of those in power never find their way in print. The most recent case being the Downing Street Memo, it is therefore not difficult to conclude that the mainstream media has become an unreliable source of truthful information.
America runs a police state. Foreign and domestic dissent is dealt with a swiftness of force either by the military or CIA covert operations, or confined in such a way that you can compare it to shouting in a sound-proof room. But there is one outlet they cannot silence: independent journalists, whistleblowers and bloggers around the world who speak the truth, who push for radical change, and who are the voice of those who have come before that have been silenced.
Seek justice for the innocent killed or maimed by America’s foreign policies. Strive for respect for all nations and all people. Be concerned for the environment. In your own way, in whatever capacity you may have, and by what ever means available to you, do speak out.
Get involved. Be part of it.
