Ok so where do we begin, yes let us thank The Most High for allowing a lot of us to get this far, enabling us to see the fruits of seeds planted in an earlier time in our lives. A lot of things that were "hidden from the wise and prudent" has been revealed before the eyes of "the babes and sucklings" of the wise and prudent. We are now armed with information that only our parents and grandparents were privy to while we were growing up, then some information are completely different from what our parents and grandparents were privy to and we had to restructure our past mindset to adjust to our enlightenment. Isolationist live by the code of "us against them" when in reality we are now more globally connected and interdepedent than ever, again by the availability of a new wealth of information. So I am able to meet a guy in a foreign country who has never been to Jamaica who is able to relate precise information to me of people I grew up with as if they also grew up with them, on occassion telling me of myself even though we never met and this was before Social Media took a foothold. Sinister ones are still struggling to use secrecy and mis-information to have their way but today it's a tougher trick to pull off and politicians up and down the globe are getting "bloody noses" for past infractions when "the wool" was over most eyes. So we are going to outline a sequence of events seen through our spectacles as to where human civilization has reached.
At the end of the "Bush-Blair" era, the political template, especially in the UK, was for politicians to go all out to gain the trust of the populace, parlay that into electoral power, then head for the appearance circuit to pull in bags of money or spin-off into a high paying consultancy gig where the knowledge from government is used to advance the interest of company "A" or company "B" like a kind of "insider trader". As you notice nothing to do with the standard of living of the actual population regarding homelessness and poverty, which is what the initial interview for the job was about, but after getting the job this has been the modern route. Obviously David Cameron was great admirer of Tony Blair, they just happen to be in different parties. So Cameron was intent on doing his "Blair stint" and riding off in the sunset but there was a mishap, Nigel Farage kinda ruffled his feathers while he had the electorate eating out of his hands as the opposition of the day was mystified by his "Blair-like" tendencies, especially when he tagged the 2008 performances of AIG and the Banksters squarely at the Labour Party's doorstep when not even Bush's past performance was being blamed in the US. The Labour Party leadership apparently was in agreement with the Conservative analysis, it was so successful the mantra is still being applied today. So Cameron as a leader who mainly governed by TV, hard hats and high-vis jackets, he decided to pull a coup on the EU, what better time as when they started to show cracks with Greece's fiancial situation. So he decided let me use the power of the Empire and show Farage "I can get an even better sweetheart deal with the EU than PMs past and for leverage I will hold over their heads the fact Britain wouldn't hesitate to leave the Union if disatisfied", good poker position, but this wasn't poker and the EU called the bluff. Now a real poker player would call a referendum and be at the front supporting the bluff to leave, instead the bluff turned out to be "I personally think it's suicidal to do what I threatened the EU Britain might do" so the guy who triggered the referendum to leave the EU suddenly became the face of the EU. But wait, the plot thickens after the referendum results to leave, instead of turning over the reigns to the people with "fire in their bellies" to leave the people who first saw it as a mistake were converted and baptised and was "full steam ahead at all costs" even to butt heads with the High Court. Unfortunately this debacle is about to create a domino effect where every "loony" with an alternate view starts to "see light at the end of the tunnel" every phobia is seeing it as their time to shine validated by "didn't you see what happened in the UK" the poster-child for abandoning friends.
Now on the other side of the coin across the pond, in fear of being regarded as "fake news" I wont delve too much in what everyone already knows and I guarantee you while I am writing this something new is coming down the pike and I like to keep current. But there are a few things that kind of stand out that I couldn't avoid or ignore. I was apalled at the "black-lash" for having a black man, let me correct that, having a man mixed with black in the US White House. Obama spent most of his Presidency trying to prove he measured up to the office of President of the USA, so much so he basically smoothed over black issues in an attempt to prove his impartiality towards blacks. Yet the venom and vitriol that was unearthed in the election campaign is an indictment that in the US it is almost impossible for a man with black appearance to even get a "so-so" rating for a fair job done. Seems this whole civilisation thing is rooted in mollasses or quick-sand. I have seen opposing poiticians who are big enough to admit to or commend the good in their opponent, but this high degree of bitterness using Judge Clarence Thomas' words "is an high-tech lynching". What would happen to America if Barack Obama went down in history as one of the great American Presidents, JFK never did two terms but we all loved him, so would this be a blight on American presidential history for good to be said of a President with black features. Right now the Presidential bar is set so low I can already guarantee you this new fella is bound for greatness, matters not what he says or does, as a matter of fact he has already been ear-marked for a second term even before he took office, remember that pile of documents with a conversation that went something like this "I am turning all these businesses over to my sons and in eight years if they mess up I'll say you are fired" so I guess eight years it is, who needs elections. Peace&Love Walk Good.
