What is one way America is actually better than other countries?

America does not allow human rights, democracy and Justice to be intentionally subverted by authoritarianism.

America does not allow human rights, democracy and Justice to be intentionally subverted by authoritarianism. The protests in Hong Kong which are occurring as I write this are a classic example of the result of a system and ideology which will only continue to subdue the rights of the individual to the power of the State.

America is not perfect and is honest enough to understand that democracy is a dynamic which must be steered by the people and not the State.

China, Russia and other authoritarian states believe the People must have limits in their ability to participate in the dynamic of the State therefore they have static and/or regressive democracies.

However, dynamic democracies have to ensure that the State apparatus is inclusive and not exclusive. There is a direction within a dynamic democracy that pursues an exclusion as Governments struggle to understand that it must ensure it allows the underlying cohesive structure of the Nation State to maintain democracy.

The ‘Nation State’ upholds democracy as it gives the citizens the ability to identify with a proven set of values – to ignore those values leads to extremism as citizens resort to violence in order to maintain them.

China is the polar of the Nation State as it imposes not the collective history of China and its lessons but a Centralist idealism which seeks to suppress the dynamic of the present formed by the past. Russia too ignores the ‘fight for freedom’ and is becoming more like China in its inability to understand the progress of the individual in our World.

Authoritarian States do not see the individual as a dynamic who is becoming more educated and more aware of the World we live in with developing expectations for themselves and others. They perceive them to be static binaries to be counted and accounted for in an automated system of Centralism.

There is a systemic failure in democracy that it is possible to ‘hijack’ its administration and use it for a purpose alien to democracy – President Trump has been subjected to such attempts but appears to be able to identify and remove them. That is not possible in China or Russia unless of course the Heads of State are not aware of any such ‘hijack attempts’.

America wakes up and states ‘How can we each of us as individuals improve our lives?

China wakes and states ‘We will tell you how to improve your lives’

Both systems have system failures.

I can go to Los Angeles and speak to the homeless on the streets of ‘America should be ashamed of themselves’ and show them how to improve their lives. As homeless crisis worsens in L.A, the county leans on city officials to act

I can go to China and be impressed by China’s structural physical achievements but I am dismayed by China’s growing subversion of the right of the people to speak out. ‘One million’ march in Hong Kong to protest against China extradition law.

I prefer America.

Why has the world failed to maintain peace?

On the day that ‘We the People’ have a say in International Democracy then that is the day when the road to World Peace will begin.

Because ‘We the People’ have no democracy at the International Level. We have no say in who represents us at the United Nations.

This is a very strange state of affairs considering that the United Nations is meant to be the ‘peak’ organisation in the World representing human rights’.

In face none of the International Organisations that exist have representatives of Countries in which the people have a say in whom is to speak and act for them.

I live in Sydney, Australia. I work alongside all race and their respective cultures. In Sydney Jew works and plays with Arab. In the Gaza they kill each other.

It is not the people preventing the World from enjoying World Peace it is our Governments and vested interests.

On the day that ‘We the People’ have a say in International Democracy then that is the day when the road to World Peace will begin.

I have written a new United Nations. It is not the people who do not read it or prevent it from being read – it is Theresa May, Donald Trump, Nikki Haley, Malcolm Turnbull and the media who do not acknowledge and support my work.

We must ask the Question ‘ When are we the people going to be able to vote in the United Nations for Peace?’

Would you like a utopia?

No Member of any Government is above the Law

https://www.quora.com/Would-you-like-a-utopia/answer/Desmond-Last

This is my utopia my life as it is right now and the progress it makes. Single-handedly for 10 years I have fought Governments, Media and Corporations to make our World one which we can all enjoy.

I am still alive and daily my support increases.

The knowledge that certain ‘important’ persons will one day face me in Court on my ‘Day of Justice and Truth’ only serves to make my life meaningful and theirs hypocritical.

Are we just a material?

Our Governments and Establishments have failed to progress Society and develop its Humanity so instead they seek to contain and control us in order to ensure our behaviour is predictable and manageable – this way they hope to contain crime and terrorism.

truth

This is my answer to the Question which was on Quora.

The Human Condition is evolving into something less than Human. In fact many are already at the point where it can be said that they are just a material.

Many people, particularly in the Western World, have accepted a way of interaction that has isolated them from the interaction of the human condition with those who are less fortunate.

Many are willing to accept a conditioned mediocre society as long as they are kept safe by whoever imposes conditions on their behavior and hence they become material.

However, by doing so they lose their freedom of expression and their ability to fight for the freedom of others. Life becomes ‘self-satisfied’ and a constant search for the next ‘experience high’.

Our Governments and Establishments have failed to progress Society and develop its Humanity so instead they seek to contain and control us in order to ensure our behaviour is predictable and manageable – this way they hope to contain crime and terrorism.

They ignore the root cause of crime and terrorism which is their failure to ensure fairness in mankind’s progression and instead seek to micro-manage the whole of their Societies.

We are at the end of ‘freedom of expression’. Our Governments will have to become more decronian and more controlling of our rights if Society is to continue to remain manageable.

To do that they need the ‘material condition’. The other developer of the ‘material condition’ is AI and its derivatives. This is a real threat to our Philosophical Freedom and has already been embraced by our Governments. AI can never produce Philosophy as it incapable of free thought. It is Philosophy that develops humanity and produces the actions for mankind that progress the ‘human condition’ ie civilization.

To confront a Government with your own ideas is now almost as if you are going to war with them. They simply no longer listen. They fear ideas other than their own because they do want a new Philosophy which may displace their own ideologies.

The material condition is encouraged and fostered to ensure that Citizens are too afraid to seek other than their own material satisfaction.

The United Kingdom and Theresa May are the leading examples in the Western World of how the ‘material society’ is progressing. May is at the forefront of imposing new controls on the Internet that will only seek to increase the divide between the State and its People.

The acceptance of the failure of our Governments to manage our Economies fairly is at the root cause of the emergence of the ‘material condition’.

Terrorism and Crime thrive on Economic Mismanagement which is a symptom of modern Governments inability to accept new ideas – the vicious circle of the Ivory Tower.

Hence the ‘Protection of the Material’ and its embryonic human condition ‘the need to be selfish’ so that there is no need to concern yourself with the actions of your Governments on Human Rights.

Why are the FBI and CIA afraid to release all of the files on the JFK assassination if everyone involved is dead?

truth

This is my answer to this Question on Quora.

Just as there is in the World a movement for Democracy and Human Rights there is also I believe a movement for Power and Control. The existence of such an Elite Group is not beyond the realms of analytical discussion in relation to the question.

There are those in our World who believe that the only way that complete Law and Order with an end to all crime is possible is by ensuring that they control all the People. This includes controlling population numbers and cultures. They have been around for a long time.

They perceive the human condition to be one of stupidity and selfishness. They judge themselves to be the ‘Power for Good’. They do not believe that Law and Order go hand in hand with Democracy and freedom of choice. They will use any means no matter what it is to achieve their control – even nuclear weapons. In their theory the end justifies the means – a modern and updated form of the 1000 year Reich whcn has all the new technologies of control and command available to it.

They, and to some extent it is ‘momentarily justified’, believe that the majority of people are willing to be controlled in order to abdicate any responsibilty for the actions taken by others and themselves which would involve any effort other than that needed for their own selfish existence.

However, the ‘momentary justification’ ceases to exist when the efforts of the people are combined in times of extraordinary human endurance to assist each other.

This then explains the ‘momentary justification’ as being a product not of the people but of the ‘Establishment System’ which seeks to provide that selfishness with its own example of failed morality and selfish justification of any act of war which kills children and allows economic mismanagement to starve them.

The Elite Group perceive the current state of the World to be a chaos approaching critical mass. In order to ‘save the world’ they want to control it. Our Governments whom they despise have proven themselves to be weak, intellectually challenged and politically selfish. Considering the state of our World most would agree. That is the real danger. They now have a truly common ground with those in the Military Establishment(s) who are of the same view.

No doubt at some point in the future they will make themselves known. However, while I seek to embrace the people with change in order that they take responsibilty for the World, the Elite Group seek to embrace the people with the chain of domination and control. Those who object will be removed.

Their Peace will be controlled by themselves and we will all be subject to its control. They will offer absolute Law and Order, a strict hierarchy of responsibility and a life of controlled subjectivity. In effect a version of George Orwell’s 1984. Some will say what is wrong with that? Auschwitz is the answer.

Did such a group exist when President Kennedy was assassinated? Probably. President Kennedy was all they admire and all they seek to destroy.

That is my theory and it explains why any documents relating to President Kennedy’s assassination are slow to surface. The documents may provide information which would be able to be used to locate such a group.

If such a group does exist then they will be part of an ‘elite subterranean’ establishment’ who will have and do use organisations such as the FBI and the CIA for their own purposes within whom they will have placed their own loyal supporters – it is called ‘Third Party Government’.

Are you a bad person? Why aren’t you bad exactly now?

cropped-facebook-2.jpg

This is my answer to this Quora Question.

I ask myself what does it take to be a bad person? Greed, selfishness, apathy? because it would appear many Government Leaders have those attributes.

 

I could not kill innocent men women and children. They do by war and economic mismanagement.

I am not a bad person because if I was a Prime Minister my Government would not allow innocent men women and children to die in Yemen by supplying arms to cause them to die in that way.

I would not let my AirForce bomb innocent civilians in Afghanistan. Over 1.5 million civilians and soldiers have died in conflict in Afghanistan since 1979.

My Government tells the children of the U.K to be good and moral. Yet it supplies arms that kill children.

I am not bad exactly now because I unlike my Government have a Principle. One that does not aid in the killing of children.

Do you think it’s true that those who never accomplish great things don’t face great problems such that being ordinary means you have less extreme hurdles?

cropped-cropped-truth2.jpg

My answer to this Question on Quora

Being ‘Ordinary’ is an accomplishment in itself.

To be able to live your life, support a family, retain a job and live with the increasing encroachment of Government regulation and any group who seek to control your life is a dedication to independence and a good life that can no longer be perceived to be ordinary.

As an ‘ordinary’ person I have been subjected to the many hurdles put before me by my own (U.K and Australian) Government’s support of the the supression of my writing by in particular the U.K and Australian Media. Believe me there is nothing ordinary in confronting the State with that which is does not want to hear – yet like many I am to my Government a nobody. I am a Citizen of no consequence.

However, one day I will be able to put my work to 7 billion people. Many of whom will benefit from its application.

Then I will have the money and a Legal Team who will ensure those hurdles are removed and Justice is done.

Hurdles are for the poor and disadvantaged by a system I seek to change and improve.

We all have a story and in our own way we all seek to accomplish great things.

Ordinary has become our Governments who seek the mundane and achieve the mediocre.
