Keeping up to date with global news itâ€™s hard not to get cynical and feel anger about how so much injustice goes so on so blatantly. The more you read, the more you know that one way or the other the â€œbad guysâ€ so to speak, win and go unpunished. Tony Blairâ€™s recent testimony the Chilcot enquiry illustrates this. Blair took the Britain to a war in Iraq that has resulted in the death of over 600,000 Iraqi and over 179 British soldiers all on false information. He recently was asked at the Chilcot inquiry if he had any regrets, he openly stated he has none in front of the families whose children died in this pointless war. You donâ€™t have to be a professor in international law to know that invading a sovereign nation solely because its leader is a â€œbuy guyâ€ is not legitimate. Itâ€™s obvious the UK and the US sanction bad guys they like and vilify the ones they donâ€™t .So this chapter of Iraq is just another chapter in the ongoing saga of injustice and brutality that seem common place in our history as people. Now with the media, more than ever we witnesses it, we observe, we watch it. We passively absorb the diluted version via our flat screen TV. I have no doubt ten years from now there will an other war rolled out some other place , inflicting more uncalled for pain and suffering to thousands.
Also just as predictable I will be prattling to my friends or anyone else unlucky enough to have to listen about how immoral these injustices are. Given the chance I will vent my moral and righteous anger on the decimating impact of neo liberalism on the developing economies. Like I am somehow enchanted and hypnotised with the sound of my voice, I will talks for hours to anyone who will listen when it comes to these kinds of topics of conversation. So here I am faced with full awareness of the world and all its injustice, I read the books, I subscribe to the email newsletter, I furrow my brow with moral supremacy at Tony Blairâ€™s arrogance. Yet I am faced with basic and simple question, what can I do to make it better? To right these wrongs,to make a lasting difference to this so called â€œunjust worldâ€. Well for all my talk it may appear very little. I donâ€™t think I make it massively worse, I am not an arms dealer or I donâ€™t club harp seals. At the end of the day like most people my day ends up being about my day. My life is made of up the things that affect me, my work, my relationship my own day to day drama. my life is dedicated to the fulfilment of responsibilities , my wants and needs. I like most people I am not a statesman making choices that have global ramifications, I am not billionaire philanthropist , whose charities feed and educate the poor. I am phone psychic , living in Malta. My circle of influence and impact on global issues has a very limited and narrow reach, actually limited and narrow is being generous, the truth is there more closer almost nothing.
