I often see some happy people as I go about my daily life, because I desperately want to believe they still exist. But I have no conclusive answers as to what has made them happy, I can only guess. The majority of people I see however cannot in my opinion be happy, as they do not display the traits of people happy and content with life. Not just miserable faces, full of grimace and dis-stain for the lot they have, but actively negative spirits that suck the goodness out of the air around them. Breeding fear and hate and contempt with each and every breath they take. Mumbling and grumbling about what bad luck they have and how life has sold them the bum deal, and how seriously they have been victimized by everyone else. Life just ain't fair to them....
We have a united nations assembly full of people chattering about unity but showing little towards one another, always looking for serving the aim of being separate rather than co-operational and effective as leaders in unity. Each nation is stubborn to the end that their goals are met, without realising that inextricably the aims of everyone need to be met before we can have peace and security. This cannot happen whilst only the desires of a few nations reach the table of consideration.
Yes the mandate was clear, but it has not rid the world of greed and disunity nor can it in this mindset. There has to be willingness to cooperate. And because some people and countries have profited above what is reasonable, others, many others are suffering in dire circumstances and with terrible poverty. The rich are causing the poor to become poorer with little or no regard for the plight of those countries or the planet upon which we live. Global poverty and environmental concerns are shelved by those thirsts for more money, resources and ultimate power. And in the main, knowledge and the seat of learning are restricted to a few privileged individuals who can pay the ever increasing fees to such avenues.
Greenpeace have been exposing destructive and exploitive behaviour for many years.
Severn Cullis Suzuki, has been thorough in her attempts to raise awareness of ecological concerns practically her whole life.
Others too many to mention have been heralding the deceit and lying and down right treasonable affairs of people and governments for centuries, especially the recent past affairs of the developed worlds leaders. Sadly most, if not all of these herald warriors have been summarily executed or disposed of by equally horrible means, by their revealed targets and co-conspirators. This practice will stop someday, as nobody will be left to quieten....
