|Global Week in Review
An exploration in citizen continuing education.
11 Threats, 12 Policies, 12 Players in One Place
- Moral & Spiritual Decline. To be added beginning next week.
- Poverty. China and India taking lead with national-scale poverty eradication. Should we pay attention?
- Infectious Disease. Distrust in vaccine integrity, are infectious diseases making a comeback?
- Environmental Degradation. Still no clue. “Big data” is fragmented, no one really cares.
- Inter-State Conflict. Kashmir will not go nuclear. Syria won. Palestine still an occupied apartheid country.
- Civil War. While Iraq stabilizes, America is moving toward culturally-insane civil war out of touch with reality.
- Genocide. Force sterilization is a form of genocide. Accountability for colonial genocide emergent.
- Other Atrocities. Pedophilia is slowly emerging as a deep national security threat. Not there yet.
- Proliferation. US/UK continue to lie about Syria using chemical weapons and who funded ISIS.
- Terrorism. White people are more likely to be terrorists in US/UK; Russia has stomped its terrorists out.
- Transnational Crime. Germany covers up illegal immigrant crime. Hats off to US DOJ on elder fraud sweep.
- Agriculture. Biofuels needs to go away; clean agriculture a distant vision; holistic policy does not exist.
- Diplomacy. US picking fights with India, Turkey, Venezuela, arming Saudi Arabia, perhaps doing well in Korea.
- Economy. Weak signals of global economic crash. President’s tariff strategy is working.
- Education. The unstated message: schools suck, not creating critical thinkers who can innovate and adapt.
- Energy. No one, anywhere, is serious about holistic energy solutions that leverages renewables at low cost.
- Family. China, Hungary, and India are dong family policy planning supportive of national integrity. We are not.
- Health. Health care in the USA is too expensive and has too many lies built in. Time to make it a public service.
- Immigration. Trump is right, Congress is wrong, Supreme Court will have a say, this will be an election issue.
- Justice. The US justice system is broken – foreign influence, legalized lies, state murder with impunity.
- Security. US does not have a holistic national security strategy – demography & technology are out of control.
- Society. Artists merit more respect; aging population cannot be supported as things now stand.
- Water. Desalination solutions are here, governments are simply not serious about solving the water crisis.
- Brazil. Brazil merits more respect from the USA – Trump has a chance to craft a new Southern front strategy.
- China. Xi has bigger problems than Trump does – seems to be more innovative – and is winning the South.
- India. Most complicated country on the planet, 22 languages, more Muslims than anyone. Next big power.
- Indonesia. Largest Muslim population in the world, massive natural resources including gold, pay attention.
- Iran. Our President needs to stomp down hard on the Deep State forces seeking to wage war on Iran.
- Israel. Jews and Palestinians, not Zionists, should be working together in peace. Genocide is not working.
- Korea. Not in the news: this is a done deal guaranteed by China. Trump is the cosmetic closer. Get over it.
- Palestine. Gandhi had it right: “Palestine is to the Palestinians as France is to the French.”
- Russia. US is losing arms sales to Russia; Russia is creating the next Internet and US will loser there as well.
- Syria. Assad won. US should be in international criminal court along with Israel and Saudi Arabia.
- Turkey. Not in the news: major regional power with Iran, One Belt One Road changes everything.
- Venezuela. This is very hard to understand. Local corruption plus US arrogance destroying a country.
