and the Global Mind
The increasing global opposition to the coming war in Iraq shows
the global mind flexing its embryonic muscles. People seem to
sense that this war is about oil and power. Not necessarily
democracy. The UN Security council is becoming a forum for the
global mind as media and instant polling in many countries converge
in a serious form of global cinema with feedback and psychic
jitters occuring on a minute by minute basis.
American rush to crush and occupy Iraq is a blatant power grab
of an empire that is in basic decline. An attempt to crush OPEC
and cow Europe and Russia. While there's still time to do so.
media in America is hostage to the war-mongers here and is refusing
to report the severity of the American economic recession and
the snuffing out of personal freedoms guaranteed by the U.S.
constitution. The global protests against the war in Iraq are
getting insufficient coverage even as the media in other countries
attempt to cover this growing global protest as accurately as
UN has estimated that it would take only 40 billion dollars
to give everyone on the planet adequate food, health care and
housing. This to me is a far better antidote to terrorism than
half a trillion dollars spent on useless aircraft carriers,
space missle kinds of defence, and other high-cost/high-tech
weapons that will not work from any conceivable angle towards
the deterrence of terrorism.
facts are not yet part of the global movie and they are being
repressed in favor of propaganda extolling useless military
production and heavy economic dependence on fossil fuels.
Where are the Aliens when we need them? :)
senior was lifted by the war in Kuwait and toppled by economic
recession and economic riots at home. Remember LA? Bush Junior
was lifted by 9/11. Well there is a serious economic recession
now. Far worse than in 1991. The economic riots could be just
a matter of time. America is waiting for its next LA. Will it
come in 2004?
