10% of the people control 60% of all of the assets. 70% of the people have no assets. Disparities between people have increased everywhere. Hillary Clinton can spend so much money that she has a 20 million dollar debt. Even so, Barak Obama has spent more money. A person cannot be a part of America and not beat down the opposition. It is the reason that this government both locally and federally, is alienating the individual person. We do not listen to the average person and include him or her in the decision making process. Almost everywhere the young have an idea that their views do not matter. In the political spectrum power and money go hand in hand to prevent people from participating in a representative government.
The fastest growing religion in the United States is Islam. In a few years the second largest religion in the United States will be Islam. If one looks at the tensions between the polemics of reactionary fundamentalism our way of life is suffering the worst assault since 1929 when the fallout came from the collapse of the stock market. 7% of Muslims throughout the world see the 9/11 catastrophes as a matter of America's fault. It is clear that these people do not all think that there needs to be a revolution but they all agree that the choices of the regime in Washington, D.C. were misguided when we attacked Iraq and Afghanistan.
Around the world business is acceptable as long as it is profitable. Nowhere is this more evident than in the growing trafficking of human beings for slavery. No one is exempt from the subjugation and abuse of people. In a film called, "How My God Died," the subject is graphically presented that human trafficking is a 10 billion dollar annual business. The problem is explicitly a matter of very large profits that have no moral ends. For more information connect with www.foreignexchange.TV.
The same report continues to expand in the number of journalists who have been murdered in Iraq, more than 200 have been killed since the war began. Five were killed in a single day. In World War II sixty-eight reporters were killed and if one totals the incidents of murder of correspondents it is obvious that the military is controlling the spread of information concerning violence abroad.
Today the web sites, such as this one are the only reliable place for average citizens to have access to information about the abuses that exist in our nation and by virtue of our policies. This reality is difficult for us to heed since we have no means to protect our rights as citizens. The best we can hope to do is doggedly resist the temptation to give up working on behalf of our rights in the most simple and direct means available. We need to take our responsibilities as citizens as a basic way of life.
