Respect and cooperation is what makes a nation great and a world better.
This is a great post.

Words To Captivate ~ by John Fioravanti

“WE NEED TO REJECT ANY POLITICS THAT TARGETS PEOPLE BECAUSE OF RACE OR RELIGION. THIS ISN’T A MATTER OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS. IT’S A MATTER OF UNDERSTANDING WHAT MAKES US STRONG. THE WORLD RESPECTS US NOT JUST FOR OUR ARSENAL; IT RESPECTS US FOR OUR DIVERSITY AND OUR OPENNESS AND THE WAY WE RESPECT EVERY FAITH.”

~ BARACK OBAMA

In my last post in this series, “Let Us Change the World!”I reflected upon the role of education in bringing about positive change in the world through a quote by Nelson Mandela. His words were spoken in the context of a speech he made to students in Boston in 1990 to encourage them to remain in school and help transform the world into a better place.

Call on the UK to Protect Schools

ALL children should have the right to a safe education. However, around the world, schools are attacked or being occupied by military forces and armed groups in conflict zones. This endangers the lives of students and teachers and hundreds of thousands of children are denied their right to education.

By endorsing the Safe Schools Declaration, UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson can support a global effort to better protect schools during times of war. The UK armed forces already have some of the world’s strongest policies protecting schools from attack and military use and can lead by example. It’s time Britain joined 71 other countries and endorsed the Safe Schools Declaration.

Sign your name and take action!

Now these are area for consideration and there may be advantages but there will also be many disadvantages.

One of the main advantages will be that there is an ordered society, but the disadvantage is who creates the order and who will monitor it.

Society values change from time to time and when this occurs would there have to be widespread rewiring or reprogramming. and who will decide when, where and how.

Is this not the Big Brother of Orwell’s 1984.

Will this only be occurring within the UK or all over the World and if the latter, what about the different perceptions of Society in each individual country. Then if this is so what would occur when people visit from other countries where the aspects of Society differ from the country they are coming to.

On the face of it rewiring and reprogramming is the ideal, but when taking into account the practicalities, then may be not.
It is also open to abuse from anyone within the ruling classes.

In effect is there not an option at the moment with the rewiring and reprogramming substituted by some forms of medication.

Lastly, would any of us wish to be, within an environment, where everyone would be the same as the next person, surely our individual differences bring enlightenment to all our lives.

Opher's World

All behaviour is either learnt or innate.

There is no such thing as evil. That religious concept went out with the death of the Devil (another human invention).

That does not mean that people do not do ‘evil’ things. They do. We all have the innate behavioural pathways to do cruel, hateful, callous and nasty things.

But most of us don’t. Should the ones who do be punished?

Either their behaviour is the result of being damaged by their horrible experiences, of being taught badly, or of an innate character flaw. Whatever the cause it is down to bad wiring in the brain and bad brain chemistry.

What has been learnt can be unlearnt, wiring can be rewired, chemistry imbalances can be corrected.

In future when we have understood the functioning and biochemistry of the brain a lot better, rather than punish someone for bad behaviour all that will be…

Is it not strange how these Government Ministers are willing to talk to people, but do not want to hear what they wish to say.

A case of I will tell you how it is but I do not want to hear your objections.

Is it that these Ministers are so far from the public that they have no understanding how their judgements and directives affect people and how they will proceed in reality.

Or more likely are they so not bothered what happens in reality and do not care for the majority of the population within the UK, as long as they and their friends are OK.

Adam Kay was a junior doctor before writing a book about his experiences

”There are fears the NHS is heading for another winter crisis after 20,000 patients were left waiting outside A&Es in ambulances in the last fortnight.

It might be the latest problem for Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt but it’s not the first. In his recent book, Adam Kay wrote an open letter (which you can read at the bottom of this story) to him over his treatment of junior doctors.

Here’s what happened when Mr Hunt invited him round for a chat…

For an unsettling few weeks, Jeremy Hunt shot up in my estimation. This morally repugnant dark lord, whose hands are drenched with the blood of so many patients, whose policies and lies have chased thousands of doctors out of the profession, actually rose in my estimation.

I received a letter from him which essentially said “If…

The American Gun Lobby, Trump and the NRA put forward the arming of every American would reduce the amount of gun crime and ideally deaths from gun fire, what in this instance did the parties being armed achieve in saving lives and reducing crime, except, at least, one less gun happy person being alive.

There are a few forces in the World today who appear to wish to bring on World War 3, Kim Jong-un, Trump, Israel and the Fundamental Right and all should be countered for WW3 will, if it comes, will be apocalyptic for the majority of the Worlds population and to what end.

The World, today, may not be good place, but it is all our lives at stake and none should be lost due to the actions of the Warmongers, never today, tomorrow or anytime within the future.

And this is exactly what Christian Zionist millennialists like Tim Lahaie want.

Yesterday, Trump announced that he was going to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. This is what the Israelis have been demanding for years, but previous administrations have not given into them, because they were very much aware that this would set off a powder keg of rage and hostility across the Middle East. Jerusalem was taken from the Palestinians, and still contains a sizable Arab population. The Israeli nationalist right would love it to be the capital of their nation, but it is also claimed by the Palestinians.

There have been mass protests and riots against Trump’s decision all over the Middle East. RT yesterday put up this footage of Israeli squaddies or the police trying to put down protesters or rioters in Bethlehem yesterday.

And politicians from across the political spectrum have condemned…

These firms have now been named but have they been shamed.

Fashion giant Primark paid nearly 10,000 staff less than the minimum wage, despite making a £735 million profit last year

I knew this vile company had to be involved

Primark and Sports Direct are among 260 firms named and shamed today for failing to pay the minimum wage.

In total, the 260 companies underpaid 16,000 workers £1.7m in back pay and have been fined £1.3m.

Business Minister Margot James said: “There is no excuse for not paying staff the wages they’re entitled to.”

Green MP and Best for Britain Champion Caroline Lucas branded the list “Brexit Britain at its worst and most exploitative.”

She added: “These figures show that bosses are continuing to exploit workers and take them for a ride. There’s a real concern that workers are set to suffer even more as the Government pursues its damaging brexit. Workers’ rights are under threat – and a…

Now there is one more and how many since this one more, surely anyone with any brain cells can see that this system is ‘not fit for purpose’ as for as the public and all others who care.

But it is ‘fit for purpose’ for all those who do not care.

Where do the DWP and the Government and the ESA assessors fit into the above mentioned ‘fit for purpose’ comments, I will leave this to you, but I feel it is not that difficult to decide.

Stop UK lies & corruption

A man with terminal cancer died before he was able to appeal a ruling by the Department for Work and Pensions which stated he was “fit to work”.

Phillip Balderson, 46, had been working at a hotel in the Lake District but was diagnosed with oesophageal cancer in 2013.

He also had psoriatic arthritis and a number of mental health problems, including anxiety and OCD.

Disability rights campaigner Shani Dhanda has called for Chancellor Philip Hammond to be sacked over “shameful” comments blaming disabled people for the UK’s poor productivity. Hammond was speaking during Wednesday’s treasury select committee, when he was asked about the sluggish economic growth he had reported in the Autumn Budget. “It is almost certainly the case that by increasing participation in the workforce, including far higher levels of participation by marginal groups and very high levels of engagement in the workforce, for example of disabled people – something we should be extremely proud of – may have had an impact on overall productivity measurements,” said Mr Hammond.

A young man with special educational needs has been left in short-stay accommodation for nearly two years because social workers in Lancashire could not decide where he should live permanently, the Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman has found.

The man was placed in short-stay accommodation by Lancashire County Council after his family told social workers they were struggling to cope with his behaviour and the impact it was having on his younger siblings.

The Ombudsman’s investigation found the placement in January 2016 was only meant to be temporary, but the man is still living in the accommodation today. It is likely the man’s behaviour has deteriorated through not living in suitable accommodation and not receiving appropriate support.

Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman, Michael King, said:

“This man has been left in limbo in this accommodation, which by its very nature was only ever intended to be a short stay. He has missed out on vital support and development opportunities
