A Global Warning.

Anyone who does not think this planet is in a terrible mess must live on another one. In the White House we have a wacko who rules through chaos. Then there is poor little BoJo in number Ten Clowning Street wrestling with the Brexit mess which is one of the silliest situations any section of the capitalist class has ever got themselves into; riots in the streets of Chile; in the U.S. four of the largest drug companies have reached a settlement of $260 million to avoid a trial in which they would be accused of fuelling the opioid crisis; global warming continues, which will eventually cause global freezing by the diversion of ocean currents owing to the melting of the polar ice caps. What has been done to decrease it is a case of too little too late: when industrial giants like the U.S., India and China continue polluting, and the factories that make batteries for electric cars are themselves polluting. Turkey invaded Syria; Iran is making nuclear weapons threatening to wipe Israel off the map, and we can be sure Israel will retaliate likewise. 

Toronto, which used to be called, "There is no wealth but life." ''Toronto the good,'' is now rampant with gang wars for control of the drug trade. 

A guy who works as an accountant for a pension fund told me the world’s pension plans are underfunded by 300 trillion dollars U.S.; imagine if the world’s economy went belly up. 

I'm sure most of you who read this can add more to this tale of woe and yet it could all be changed very easily and very quickly - I can do no better than quote novelist, Alice Walker: ''The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any.'' You have it so use it.

Canadian Comrade.

"Iran is making nuclear weapons threatening to wipe Israel off the map"

Very disappointing to read these two bits of misinformation. We shouldn't be reinforcing propaganda by repeating it.
