Have we learned NOTHING?

Have we learned NOTHING? Do we realize how many terrorists we created when we killed 500,000 Iraqis (including 160,000 civilians). How will bombing more people stop terrorism.

IT’S NOT JUST HIM. IT’S US TOO.

Trump gave 3 reasons for escalating the US involvement in Afghanistan: "to honour those American soldiers who had died there since 2001, to stop Afghanistan from becoming a haven for terrorists once more and to help stabilise the region.". Gosh, honoring American soldiers who died there by having more Americans die there? Stopping Afghanistan from …

Let’s stop lying & saying there’s no solution. The root cause of so many of our surface political, economic, social & environmental problems is our patriarchal view of the world. And we can DEFINITELY solve that crisis of perception. Once we do, many of our current dilemmas will fall away like water off a duck’s back.

BELOW IS AN ASTOUNDING SHORT CLIP FROM THE FILM MINDWALK (set at Mont Saint Michel in France). This beautifully lays out one of our main challenges and offers a powerful solution.  This is truly fascinating.
