THERE IS NO RIGHT OR WRONG !

  Hm. What do you see here ? Two or three ends ? Depends where you look from, right ?   The same thing happens when you say "I'm right, you're wrong". You look from the left, the other from the right, and - both are wrong - or right ?   Your "right", or point of view, is a combination of several factors.

Is Democracy Dead?

To me it appears that a small wealthy elite run the world. They buy the regime they want. In order for a candidate to be elected to office they have to attract enormous financial backing. This backing comes from political parties. The political parties are reliant on donors and in order to attract t…

Let's make the country great (again)

It seems that every time a politician wants to appeal to a certain section of the electorate he starts to prate on about "Let's make the country great again".   Over the years we have heard this many times, from many politicians.  So I think it is a statement that is worth thinking about. …
