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.
