How the Third World Saves It’s Self and Us
Poor folks around the world are getting factory jobs, in much the
same way our country folk
flocked to the city in years past. We are buying the stuff they
make, and hopefully they are
thinking long term as to how they will use their new found buying
power. If we are to survive
as a planet we need to sell them on the idea of cleaner energy
than what propelled us to
where we are. The earth has just so much oil, coal and
atmosphere to supply us with our
energy needs. Most people want electricity, plumbing and
convenient transportation, and
there is no reason why they can’t have it eventually. As we sell
them cleaner more efficient
technology, the price will fall and we will both benefit. They can
trade each other for durable
goods and we can demonstrate leadership in creating a more
sustainable occupation of the
Earth. Through modeling comfortable sustainable living we will
help ourselves as well.     

Racism Exposed to Light
Racism pits people in the same boat against each other and
slows all types of progress. We
hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created
equal. (U.S. of A. Declaration of
Independence) Jesus loves the little children, all the little
children of the world, all red and
yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight, Jesus
loves the little children of the
world. (Children’s song) I have a Dream, that one day, all people
will be judged by the
content of their character, and not the color of their skin. ( M.L.
King Jr.) Why can’t we all just
get along? (Rodney King) No one has been barred on account of
his race from fighting or
dying for America - there are no “white” or “colored” signs on the
foxholes or graveyards of
battle. (J.F. Kennedy) Freedom is an invisible word. if we want to
enjoy it, and fight for it, we
must be prepared to extend it to everyone, whether they are rich
or poor, whether they
agree with us or not, no matter what their race or the color of
their skin. (W.L.Willkie) I am
the inferior of any man whose rights I trample under foot. Men are
not superior by reason of
the accidents of race or color. They are superior who have the
best heart - the best brain.
(R.G.Ingersoll) After all there is but one race - humanity. (G.
Moore) No higher duty, or more
solemn responsibility, rests upon this Court than that of
translating into living law and
maintaining this constitutional shield deliberately planned and
inscribed for the benefit of
every human being subject to our constitution - of whatever race,
creed, or persuasion. (H.L.
Black) All my life I have fought against prejudice and intolerance.
(H.S.Truman) Fourscore
and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a
new nation, conceived in
liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created
equal. (A.Lincoln) We’re all
in this together, no one is perfect, put your best foot forward, and
I bet your neighbor will
too. (B.T.Duncanson)  

    Native Peoples
What a despicable act of racial cleansing happened when the
Americas were discovered.
(They weren’t called the Americas by the Natives) by the Old
World. By a “God fearing” (in
God we trust) Government, of the people, who mostly prayed to
God and Jesus like they do
now in the year 2000. With the information boom we are now
having, maybe the exploitation
of people in general will die off. Chattel Slavery was legal in the
South until only 140 years
ago.  The Cold war is only recently over. Under English Laws my
ancestors were subject to
a Decree where a woman’s honeymoon was spent with the Duke
or Earl or King and the
husband had to accept it as he would any other law. My Scottish
ancestors, who fought
nude, covered with grease kept Rome out at Hadrians Wall. They
were later to pay taxes to
the English King and the Scottish King and became known for
being thrifty. (even the
Scottish had a King) Did he spend his time coordinating an
improved country, or did he live
all high and mighty on the backs of an exploited people? I think
maybe the thing to do is
Forgive our oppressors and have pity on a person so sick as to
steal a life. If they wanna do
it again, I say NEVER AGAIN!
