Thoughts at Perhaps the Most Perilous Time in World History

Humanity at risk.

by Stephen Lendman

Daily events should scare everyone. Consider the times. Wars rage without end. More threaten. One conflict follows others. So-called democracies wage them. 

Popular needs go begging. Conquest, occupation, colonization, and exploitation are prioritized. Ordinary people are on their own sink or swim. 

Rich societies plead poverty. Nothing's available for social needs, they claim. Warmaking priorities matter most. So do policies favoring bankers, other corporate favorites, and super-rich elites.

Today's upside down reality endangers everyone. Protracted global Depression deepens. Policies adopted make things worse, not better.

Criminality is rewarded, not punished. What better explains than Friday's headline announcement. Imagine Nobel Committee members granting NATO their most coveted award. 

Warmakers won their Peace Prize. Perhaps they'll be encouraged to keep ravaging countries globally. Why not when war is considered peace.

Leaders who wage them reap huge rewards. Peacemakers are vilified. So are social democrats. Hugo Chavez stands out. Most Venezuelans love him for good reason.

He cares and shows it. He keeps promises he makes. He shares Venezuela's oil wealth with everyone. Voters rewarded him with six more years. He thanked them responsibly.

He'll deepen Bolivarian principles. He called 21st century socialism a work in progress. He wants it advanced and improved , saying:

"We are obliged as a government and as the state to speed up the administration of efficient responses and solutions to the thousands and thousands of problems that the Venezuelan people still suffer from. We are obliged to be more efficient, precisely so we can continue every day with greater force."

He'll launch "Mission Mercosur." It's the Common Market of the South. He wants it used to advance Venezuelan development. He has railways, deep-water ports, and other projects in mind. He wants more jobs created and exports increased.

It's "extremely important".to convert La Ceiba, Trujillo state and the Lake of Maracaibo into international ports. Further, we should start at once to begin the construction of the railway line between the Orinoco and the Caribbean," he said.
