Promised Values


GREED

High-level criminality persists through to this modern day
The power of greed-money maintains its stay
Politicians of every stripe becoming too willing to play
Opposition to such influence, by death, is easily put away

Universal changes for the good are easily contrived
Yet common sense solutions are forcefully denied
Mainstream Media propaganda reinforcing the lies
So what is right versus what is done are destined to collide

Pressure is building and becoming harder to contain
Extremist to the right and the left making louder their claim
That oligarchic power can no longer be tolerated, be sustained
Use of destructive, deadly force no longer a viable refrain.

The warnings for decades have been visible, evidently clear
The 21st century Peoples common voice increasingly sincere:
They covet what has been promised, values held dear
And willing to fight for their Rights, to death, without hesitation or fear.

Gapping Wound’s Bleed


 

world divide

Malignant chaos’ sufferance globally grows;
Chronicling an age of brutality, suppression imposed;
Religion, ethnicity, skin colour given cause to diminish, abuse;
Repetitively spoken with indifference, nightly, by mainstream News.

Political factions volley reason for remedy course to chart;
Pulling the strings of humanity’s ailing, callusing heart;
Hope; a candle lit to a darkened room, looms bright,
Yet, is easily snuffed, its flame doused by hysteria and fright.

The battle between goodness and evil, thought to be ancient foe,
Yet, deeper into a darkening chasm of hate seems the current flow;
Modernity; period of intellect able to overcome these incessant storms,
Renders without precedent; historical antecedent to this expected norm.

The hammered wedge of divineness that grows increasingly wide;
Bought by differing nationalism, theology, moral beliefs and pride;
Need be diffused by reason of intellect, compassion and compromise to succeed
So, the collective of humanity can finally cauterize this gaping wound’s bleed.

25000 Refugees

As the new Liberal government under Prime Minister Trudeau proceeds to process 25000 refugees from the scourge of war in the Middle East, more and more Canadians are voicing their concern that the effort will only serve to import radical terrorist to Canadian shores. The opinions voiced by way of comments to News articles addressing the concern has illustrated the true nature of some Canadians in the form of intolerance and cloaked discrimination.  To illustrate my sentiments in reaction to these comments I offer up the following:

25000 Refugees

21st Century Humanity

Climate in the 21st Century – Muted Voices


seasons

To start, go to your favourite search engine and type in the phrase: ` 21st century new realities’.

For the sake of this conversation, I sought out Google, Bing and Yahoo.

Scrolling through the results obviously in order of `rating’; the most sought or pursued search result, what becomes disturbingly obvious is the total exclusion of any mention related to climate change or global warming.

The reason this is most disturbing and troubling; given that the majority of aforementioned search results, the topics related to economy and education were the primary focus.

Though the anticipated changes to the global economic model for the 21st Century is relevant, as is the standard of education undertaken in response to these changes, they become moot if the shift in climate and conditions resulting from it, manifest in ways already being experienced around the globe.

To those who have not considered the gravity of the current and growing erosion of global climate, the following video will provide a quick update on the present status from a global perspective:

No doubt many may remain sceptical to the reality and/or seriousness of changes to climate now and in the future however, would it not be prudent to at least have the matter on the radar, to be discussing what and how humanity proposes to respond should all projected models prove to be accurate if not understated?

Truly, one need ask the long-range wisdom of those who have or are considering, birthing children into this 21st Century world. It would be reasonable to be considering what world condition their children innocently, are going to be subject to. Especially given the obvious lack of true concern and commitment to mitigating any of the scientifically documented contributors to the abysmal climate change conditions anticipated and, their direct repercussion on the quality of life and living standard future generations will be subjugated to endure. And through no fault of their own.

Compounding the potential for a more dire state of affairs are the dwindling resources, natural and monetary,to effectively respond to the excessive property damage and, financial and economic losses associated with increasingly severe weather conditions already experienced on a daily basis. An extreme shift in weather patterns currently find some areas of the globe suffering from prolonged periods of unusually high temperatures leading to severe droughts and critical water shortages contributing to multi-hectare size forest fires. From this state of conditions to torrential downpours contributing to excessive flooding and landslides.And the full impact of climate change as projected, has not been fully realised.

This article is not intended to `fear-monger’ nor open the flood-gates (no pun intended) of debate on the validity to the reality of climate change nor the conditions purported to be responsible however, in both Canada and the United States the election cycle for the leadership of both countries is well underway and, it behoves every voting citizen to make this issue an electoral issue, to pursue their favoured candidate and associate political party; to how they propose to deal with this urgent matter for the present and increasingly important, the future. Failure to do so may mean the difference of life to death for their children and generations yet to come should there remain no viable world into which to be born.
