Understanding China & the Chinese People: Almost Everything You Have Been Told Is False
Almost everything you have been told, or thought you knew about China is probably not true. Most of the ingrained beliefs within western industrialized countries about China are thirty to forty years out of date. Is the Communist Party of China despised and feared, or do the majority look favorably upon it? As the Chinese economy surges forward, are the people benefiting from this new wealth? Do the police have good community relations or are they just goons of the Party? Can you describe the daily life of the average Chinese? How do they perceive the USA?The Sadness That Follows Muslim Refugees
It’s a different culture and a far different way of life that they bring with them and many cannot adapt to the culture and ways of their new homeland. The Muslim religion is to blame because it is so restrictive and completely opposite to the democratic system of the Western nations to which many are fleeing. How can they adjust when everything they have been brainwashed into believing is suddenly overturned in the free societies to which they have come?Sharia Law in Aceh, Indonesia
The news this morning that Sharia law has taken over Aceh in Indonesia is a shock to Australians who battled to save the area after the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004. It killed over 170,000 people with waves some 100 feet high driven up to 4 miles inland. It wiped out villages and sent animals, humans, and other things into a swirling mass of water that was beyond comprehension to those who saw it or who survived it.Who Cries for Gaza?
A special report on Australian television showed the story of the father of a small child whose body washed up onto the Turkey coast recently. There was an instant outpouring of grief worldwide as those who cared were horrified. Why?The Prison of the Gaza Strip
It has puzzled me for some time how the world has stood by and watched the Gaza Strip turn into a prison in which people have suffered an unbelievable hell. Where are the human rights watchers and those who care? Where is humanity when our own kind are treated in such a way that to look on Gaza is to literally look at hell on earth?Islam Rules the World
While many in the west fear the apparent rise of the Muslims and, therefore, Islam, they do not realise that their own religions are also Islamic. This is known because of my reincarnation and knowledge that heaven and hell are non-existent. With a strong link to the Spirit of the Universe, the only God, it commissioned me to tear down the wall of confusion and blindness.The Internet and a Message for the World
Communication is so fast and so efficient that many consider it a miracle that in this time we can speak to anyone in the world in an instant. The Internet is the modern marvel and everyone has access to it in one way or another. Mobile phones, tablets, and other devices puts it in the category of a huge mountain of knowledge and access to exchange ideas and search out answers to any problem.Iraq War and the Aftermath
It was a huge mistake when the President of the United States decided to punish Iraq for the 9/11 attack on his country. The question is how much was such an act justified and what happens now? An Inquiry in Britain has apportioned blame on the leaders of the countries involved and that will lead to huge compensation claims.Why We Need to Be More Ambitious About Food in India
How many times do we read a bunch of food stories from BuzzFeed or The Conde Nast Traveller? It’s probably one every day or if we are not that really a foodie, a few every week. Stories of food depravity don’t really cross our minds, isn’t it? India is home to 194.6 million undernourished people, the highest in the world as reported by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. This makes up 15% of our population. But the facts about under-fed and hungry kids are way more alarming. While the report did state that the number of underweight children declined from 49.2 per cent in 1990 to 30 per cent in 2013, it’s just not enough. Unless every non-governmental organisation in India strives to feed every child in India, this situation wouldn’t improve.Look at It From Outside to See the Deadly Horrors Within the USA
With the rest of the world looking on and intrigued by the attitude of a few who hold the country to ransom there is little sympathy for the gun violence in the USA. The statistics are appalling and one wonders how and why this great nation got itself into this predicament. Children, parents, brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts, and uncles are murdered every year and still the world waits for some common sense law to change the situation.
