Building A Better World
The world is a mess today; we are witnessing poor and corrupt leadership all over the world. Leaders are going to prison for greed and corruption. This happens when it is politically expedient
Leaders are using their political positions to enrich themselves; they are spending money like it grows on trees and then expect taxpayers to cover their extravagance.
The power brokers of the world seem to have no hearts; they make decisions that make the poor even poorer and the rich even much richer.
Let me give one example that makes me very disappointed in the power brokers.
When a country is in financial troubled, partly due to mismanagement of governments or world recessions; the first thing the power brokers advise or force is devaluation of their currencies.
Devaluation of a country’s currency forces that country into long-term poverty, Their exports become cheaper for the importers( ie the power brokers )and their imports become more expensive, thus driving them into deeper poverty.
If that country depends on tourism the power brokers dollar is worth more, therefore they can have a cheap holiday.
When a bank forecloses on the average person, who can no longer pay his mortgage due to declining economic conditions; you will think the bank will try to help by lowering interests rates for example; no they will rather sell to the rich for pennies in the dollar; rather than assist the poor to keep their property.
Interests rates to the poor is higher than interest rates to the rich,; it should be the reverse. The spread in developed countries is several points lower than the spread in third world countries.
Thee are so many inequalities I could write all day, but my interests is in the building of a better world, and you may have better ideas than the power brokers.
Let your feelings and ideas be known; I will like to document them and share them with the world.`
If you are an older person do it for your children and grand children.
If you are a youth do it for your future and future generation.
Let me start with one idea for developing and third world countries.
What ever you do don’t let your people starve; every piece of wasteland or open land not cultivated distribute seeds and seedlings to plant fruit trees.
Any able body person receiving social benefits and volunteers to be asked to care for those trees.
I was happy to see that people should not go hungry in St Lucia, You can always find a fruit or ground provision to eat .I hope it hasn’t changed or will never change.
Share your ideas for a better world.
