Towards Understanding the Political Monsters of History

Contemporary superpowers are mere assumed names and abstract titles, not the compelling reality of the global political affairs. Why nothing good comes out of the combined resources of the global institutional working? One perspective could be that if nations of the world are fragmented, soon they will be stagnated and the global warriors would dominate and control them effectively for all purposes. Imagine, if the 21st century informed global community had proactive, moral and intellectual leadership, the global mankind would have embraced the ideas and ideals of future-making to transform the 20th century’s individual endeavors into measurable advancement and to pave the ways for the coming of the 21st century knowledge-based changes as progressive civilizations.  In his internationally acclaimed classic work, Professor John W. Drapper of the University of New York,  A History of the Intellectual Development of Europe  (NY Harper Brothers, 1864), portrayed the human development process as “man is being treated as an individual” and not an embodiment of collective transformation leading past immersion into making of the present – and the present unfolding the future.

Cyrano’s Journal Today

Other contemporary novelists, such as le Carré and Ludlum, have skirted around the issues. So far, only Stewart has had the courage to nail the lies directly. The encirclement of Russia (and, to an extent, also India and China, seen by America as threats to its global hegemony) and the surreptitious expansion of American military and economic power worldwide in defence of an obviously corrupt and failing global capitalism …through its multitude of ‘Lily Pad’ bases – is the major, as yet insufficiently told, story of our time.
P. Carline, from the Foreword

Special for The Greanville Post & Cyrano’s Journal

Even confused, often corrupt, bumbling Italy has a much better healthcare service than America.

Even confused, often corrupt, bumbling Italy has a much better healthcare service than America, and a much less savage capitalism.

(Gaither Stewart from Rome)  I just returned from my national health doctor and the next door pharmacy. The doctor graciously dressed an inflamed, very deep cut on my right hand and gave me a prescription for an antibiotic to avoid infection. Total time, five minutes. Cost: zero.  » Read more..

Hit us when we’re down.

PrintFriendly and PDF

By Rowan Wolf

There are headlines that I just hate to see because what follows is just formulaic. “Investigations” into public employee benefits, pay, or retirement funds are a sure fire bet that big pressure to cut all of the above are coming. Instead, they should be asking, “How to we improve all worker’s wages and benefits?” Likewise, I cringed when I saw the headline “Ballooning food stamps likely to face deep cuts” – part of a larger article Big jump in food-stamp enrollment drives farm bill debate (Oregonian, 7/22/2012).

Are Wars Inevitable?

By William T. Hathaway. Republished from Dandelion Salad.

“We’ve always had wars. Humans are a warring species. Without an army to defend us, someone will always try to conquer us.”
