The president of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte, has officially “disconnected” from the US. Is it a coincidence that at the same time when Duterte was rejecting any further US control over his country, the second major hurricane in a week was pounding the Philippines? Though all the major global powers are involved with the climate engineering insanity, the sheer size of the US military industry complex ensures that it has the most power to force the climate system. How much more manipulation can the climate system sustain before it completely unravels? Record smashing heat in the US North East has been followed by snow in some locations, what is wrong with this picture? What price has the planet paid for the proverbial “American Dream”? What price will our children now pay for this same delusion? Though nations all over the globe also bear a great deal of responsibility for the looting, plundering, and pillaging of the planet, The United States has led the ongoing environmental assault with mass consumption and an unimaginably out of control military industrial complex. Is the US population being informed of the fact that their government and Saudi Arabia are helping ISIS fighters to escape Mosul, Iraq, so that they can continue their carnage in Syria? When will the US population wake up and connect the dots?
Our problems are not going to magically go away by ignoring them, such apathy will only ensure our common demise. Only in facing the whole unvarnished truth, head-on, can we have any chance of making anything better. Doing the right thing because it is the right thing to do, this is a choice we must all make. The battle for the greater good rests on us all.
