My answer to What were the worst trends of 2016 according to you?
Answer by Desmond Last:
The acceptance by People’s all over the World that two legal systems exist. The first legal system is the one that we the People are required to live within.
In this system we are required not to murder anybody. If we do we will be arrested and if convicted will serve a life-term in prison or even the death sentence.
The other legal system is for our Governments. They are allowed to directly bomb or shoot innocent civilians or support groups who also kill innocent civilians.
That was the worst trend of 2016 which has been carried onto 2017. We are now in the Assad and Rebels of Syria time machine. Back to the same political structure that existed 5 years ago that lead to the deaths of some 300,000 plus Syrians.
Well done Governments. You are as unable in 2017 to solve any of the problems of the World just as you were unable in 2016 to do the same.
That is the other trend. We increasingly accept mediocre Governments who are intellectually challenged by the problems of the World.
