Why do we believe in the government?

https://www.quora.com/profile/Desmond-Last

Because we want to believe that we can trust them, that our interests are shared with ours. We want to give them a respect and we want our lives to be better.

Wrong oh so wrong. They are a World apart from us. They live in Ivory Towers protected from the World and its reality.

They retire to fat pensions and guarded life-styles.

They are no longer accountable and they lie so often that they believe their own lies.

They never answer the Question.

Why do we believe in Government? Because we are too bloody busy working to pay for them to do anything other than hope that somebody else will start the revolution.

What can one achieve by being wise in mind?

https://www.quora.com/What-can-one-achieve-by-being-wise-in-mind/answer/Desmond-Last

Nothing. You cannot be wise to oneself unless you are able to use your perceived wisdom to assist those who are able to provide you with an insight into your own wisdom.

As an example I use my efforts to improve our World. Theresa May the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom has studiously ignored each and every idea I have for a better United Kingdom and World – as has Malcolm Turnbull the P.M of Australia but he is not relevant to World Affairs. He has chosen to take Australia out of the World with policies that make Australia a technology and Environment backwater and subservient to whoever holds a cheque book.

Theresa May has chosen to use the wisdom of others to chart a path for the U.K. Fine that is Theresa May’s choice. How then does that place my being ‘wise in the mind’?

Well Theresa May is clearing saying to me that my ideas on one of my more prolific subjects; Counter Terrorism and the use of the Quran by ISIS are of no consequence. However, on Quora those who upvote those same views in summary are saying the opposite.

Then there is the White House and President Trump. I have two letters addressed to me personally from the White House on behalf of President Trump – admittedly on different subjects. However, the White House would not have sent them if it thought my ‘ideas for a better world’ were dangerous or not feasible.

Being wise in the mind is of no use unless others are able to encourage and foster the development of your wiseness so as to enable you to promote a objective wiseness and not a subjective one.

That is the key. Wiseness must be objective with no fear or favour. That is what the White House have given me – support for my objectivity. Wiseness must be objective if it is to be of use. It must take into account all views and produce leadership that promotes the right to participate – be it whichever arena the wiseness is produced for.

Wiseness from the top of a Mountain is fine but of little use if it cannot be heard and be seen to be wise.

Songs for Change Desmond Last

These are the lyrics to the songs I have written that one day the United Nations General Assembly, the Security Council and the Torture Committee will hear as part of a testimony to a motion that seeks Justice for cruel and inhumane acts supported and allowed by a Prime Minister(s) and President(s) – Time, the Truth and the Law will decide the Justice.

Dying in Afghanistan

He lay there in the dust and sand

He bloodied red with his once life

An American Marine so far from his home

But with his Nation at his side

Afghanistan now his lasting memorial

And that of so many others too

His comrades they stood in silent salute

Their tears cried out …Why?

Why Mr President are we still dying in Afghanistan?

Mr President how many more Marines have to die

How many more Marines Mr President have to die in Afghanistan

Before there is an end to the war in Afghanistan?

 

In the hills stood a Taliban

His tears of pain for his daughter

For she lay alongside the Marine

Both dead from his IED – an IED that he had layed

In the hills a Taliban stood alone

His tears a flood of pain

 

When President Trump and Taliban

Will there be an end to the war in Afghanistan

When President Trump will the dying in Afghanistan end

When will there be a Peace in Afghanistan


 

Somewhere in Afghanistan

Somewhere in Afghanistan

A Marine from Georgia USA

Did die for his Nation

Why is the world such a good place?

Q&A on Quora

Tiger

The World is such a great place because I can have an idea and improve the lives of millions.

The fact that my ideas are ignored by every Journalist in the World and not acknowledged by Malcolm Turnbull and Theresa May is not important. What is important is that President Trump has acknowledged me.

What is even more important is that in our World of Political Selfishness and Corporate irresponsibility it is still possible to have the dream, to live for the hope and achieve the impossible.

One day my ideas will improve the lives of those peoples who cannot help themselves and the lives of creatures great and small whom mankind appears to be so intent on destroying. That is my dream.

Has President Trump changed the way we think about politics forever?


HRUK12


This is my answer to this Question taken from Quora.

Not yet but there is a mood of change and President Trump is creating it. However,  just because he uses Twitter and does not feel constrained by Political Correctness does not make him a good President.

It is what you are able to achieve for your people that produces a change in Politics. Many Politicians come and go. We sigh with wilted expectation at yet another cheery sound byte at a school or construction site somewhere.

We listen to the spin and the promises and we walk away with resigned acceptance.

We watch the lows of internal corruption and then we witness the inevitable exit of yet another ‘all promise but no deliver’ politician – who never actually met with any of us only their own carefully choreographed supporters.

Then along comes President Trump. I was so enthusiastic about the prospect of change I campaigned for him in marginal key swing states to coincide with Obama and Clinton public meetings. By that I mean I sent out emails supporting President Trump from the United Kingdom where I live. I even wore my President Trump 2016 Campaign Baseball Cap.

Has President Trump made me view politics in a different way? Not yet. But I do say this:

‘I speak with a dim but beating soul of optimism when I say see a light and it doth hath the possibility of a brightness with intent. The people to lead out of a once darkening gloom’.

I used to say that I would not support any Political Party and I still do not. But I do support President Trump’s undoubted enthusiasm for the right of a Nation to choose its own destiny and for its people to make that destiny their fate and promise.

I am beginning to see President Trump’s change to Politics. First the collection of dynamic suport. Then the Strategy – the December USA National Strategy. Then the confirmation of the movement – the State of the Union Speech – I liked that he involved people in the Speech. Then slowly moving into an Economic and Industrial Strategy but all the time communicating to and involving the people.

As President Trump said in the State of the Union Speech it is the People who made America and it is the People who will make America great again.

Yes if President Trump has changed anything it is that I feel I can write to him and my letter will not be thrown in the bin – I have had two replies from the White House.

President Obama, and Prime Ministers May, Turnbull, Cameron, Rudd, Gillard and Abbott have never replied neither has Corbyn.

Are we able to put ideas to President Trump and will he listen and engage? Maybe. Time will tell. But there is a light…………………

Why am I ignored by Theresa May but not by President Trump?

HRACT1

Why is it that when I write to Theresa May I get no response. Even when I wrote about the way my 88 year old Mum was treated in a Care Home – Zero. But when I write to President Trump the White House responds.

 

Why don’t people like Donald Trump for his open and outspoken personality?

cropped-cropped-truth2.jpg

I answered this Question on Quora.

It is because President Trump will not accept that he has to conform to the view that Politics is for the Media, Government is for the Establishment, diplomacy is for deals under the table and the People are for ‘spinning’ to.

He went to the People of America and told them what he wanted a mandate for. Now he is delivering it.

Did those who are vocal in their criticism of him think he was going to be change just because he became President? He has never been a Politician what else was he going to do other than be himself.

In 2020 they will be able to vote for somebody else until then they have every opportunity to present ideas better than President Trump’s to the People.

I would rather have a Leader who is honest with the People about his views of the World than one who tells the media what it is he or she expects the People to believe.
