A World of Responsibility

The world is complex for sure: unrest, war, starvation, drought, overpopulation, climate crises, religious extremism.  And what is the world in whole or in part doing about any of it?  Piecemeal actions which ressolve nothing.

People and nations must take responsibility individually and en masse.

AFRICA:  This continent for the most part is happily still living in the 19th century with its massive corruption and dictators.  It is over populated on drought stricken land that cannot support its people.  Religion and cultural norms dictate that women are genitally mutilated; no access to contraception; rampant poaching of animals for the benefit or profit and to fill the bellies of backward Asians who believe rhino horn is going to make them virile, as just one example.  And now Ebola in West Africa where the uneducated population makes the situation dire beyond belief.  Really, what has Africa done to resolve its own problems in all these years?  Absolutely nothing or very little indeed.  And so should the west help more?  Only insofar to maintain strict quarantine and no travel into or out of the affected regions.  As for poachers, they should be eviscerated!

USA:  Get your own house in order first and foremost.  Racial disharmony abounds; aids and abets rampant illegal immigration while at the same time there is homelessness, income inequality of unprecedented proportions, lack of universal healthcare, Wall Street and corporate abuses and takeover of the country and a government and Supreme Court that permits it; religious extremism; endless wars on other nations sucking our economy dry; government corruption with little in the way of prosecution; constantly supplying foreign aid to other nations that don’t really need it (such as oil rich nations) while claiming there are no funds for social programs at home; disrespect and nonsupport of military veterans; environmental pollution and wildlife decimation all in the name of profit; supporting disreputable countries like China and allowing it and other foreign entitles to take control of the U.S.

MIDEAST:  Crazed religious extremism, corruption, rampant abuses against women and female children, human rights abuses, regional turmoil and the unwillingness to negotiate and resolve issues.  Why should the rest of the world care to help when the countries in the region support and fund terrorism and genocide and happily hide their heads in the sand about everything?

EUROPE:  Take a stand.  It wanted a unified Europe yet all that’s done is allow unmonitored travel between nations which leads to illegal and unrestricted immigration into countries that no longer have their own identities and which supports terrorism; lets Russia get away with invasion of a sovereign nation.  Europe has enough money to support itself and yet it expects the U.S. to do its dirty work on the war front and with respect to regional security.

CHINA:  The world’s thief.  Rampant corruption, piracy of the world’s intellectual, security and other resources; militarism, human rights abuses; polluter extraordinaire-air, water, land; nonstop fraud, selling toxic products to the rest of the world; lack of hygiene and control over pandemics-avian flu; world takeover of other nation’s real estate, resources and corporations.

VATICAN:  This religious “nation” forces overpopulation by disallowing contraception and abortion on people who cannot afford to support more children throughout the world.   All the unwanted children should be sent to the Vatican where they must remain fed, housed, clothed and educated until they are 21.  The Vatican certainly has the wealth to do it.

Africa and the Middle East need to move into the 21st century.  The USA needs to stop playing policeman to the world and instead support its own people.  Europe needs to keep its regional individuality while stopping the spread of terrorism through its borders and maintain its own security.  China needs to clean up its act on every front before the world will have anything to do with it.

And finally, the world should wash its hands of the Middle East and let the region self destruct in endless wars between religious extremists of one side against the other.  It is such a sickening display of dictatorships and atrocities that appear to be condoned through the actions and inactions of the countries in that part of the world.  Solution: quarantine, sanctions until it implodes from its own horror, weight and stupidity.  The same could be said about Africa.  China should have to fend for itself.  Why is the world actually supporting China’s takeover of the rest of the world?

  1. America and large scale philanthropists are actually addressing most of the issues that you’ve mentioned. They are taking a slow and calculated approach. I just wish we were more open about them. History has also shown that theories in economics and government can overlook just one small segment that can lead to catastrophe. In being more open perhaps we could utilize one benefit of a larger population which is the access to ideas. Currently to discuss openly in public the issues you bring up would incite what I’ve been calling an explosion of emotion and irrationality that has somehow been programmed into most of us. Personally I believe that those with the power are doing what they believe is the best course of action for the greater good of humanity and to their defense they do have access to many tools we do not such as game theory based models for instance. I still wish we could discuss this more openly as there are many more ideas out there and many different paths to a peaceful world culture. Thank you for your post.

    • And thank you for your very intelligent comment on what I understand could be a very divisive post. You are right on with your statement “Currently to discuss openly in public the issues you bring up would incite what I’ve been calling an explosion of emotion and irrationality that has somehow been programmed into most of us.” No one wants to face the truth.
