Agree with this %100 - these problems should be PREVENTED not deliberately CAUSED - no child or anyone should be put through such suffering and harm - I mean, I would not want to go through that, so why would I allow it to happen to someone else?

Thanks for sharing that Chris Hedges article, it lays it bare the massive problem we've allowed by letting the drive for profit at the cost of life run amok within our economic system - the way the current system is should never have existed, but it does and all we can do now is correct it and prevent the future suffering that's to come if we do not.

Noted!

Many and many a year ago, when I was young, we used to say, "Let's go out and get some fresh air."

Noted! Thanks for exposing this! There is much abuse and exploitation going on in our world and the current system makes sure we are so preoccupied with our petty concerns that we do not consider/see that it is in our hands to stand up to the atrocity we have accepted as life/world/system...

We're not measuring the consequences of the decisions motivated to satisfy a civilization that we have built upon greed and not within the consideration of physical laws wherein all actions are gauged to be best for all. Instead we got a consequential outflow of a relationship that broke the harmony between man and nature. Very cool exposure, we have a lot to work on ahead to take responsibility for our mess.

wow thanks for sharing I just read the report you mentioned in this post. Chris Hedges' Columns
Rise Up or Die - Quote "A handful of corporate oligarchs around the globe have everything—wealth, power and privilege—and the rest of us struggle as part of a vast underclass, increasingly impoverished and ruthlessly repressed. There is one set of laws and regulations for us; there is another set of laws and regulations for a power elite that functions as a global mafia."
