“This Treaty Can – And Will – Change The World”

Every semi-literate person in the atomic age recalls Albert Einstein’s 1946 warning: “The unleashed power of the atom bomb has changed everything, except our modes of thinking, and thus we drift towards unparalleled catastrophes.” (The Quotable Einstein p. 175) All major news sources in the United States have seemingly done their utmost to prevent awareness [...]

Hermann Göring’s thought or warning of Pope Francis on war with North Korea?

Reich Marshall Hermann Göring (1893-1946) was one of the ten most powerful leaders of Hitler’s vanquished Third Reich. Hitler, Göring and several other leaders of the Third Reich took their own lives rather than face judgment as Germany surrendered. “People can always be brought to the bidding of leaders.

Another Suicidal Showdown At The Yalu River Near North Korea?

Gladys and Billy were an impoverished couple living on M.L. King Blvd. in Dallas. We met during 1989-1992 to consider their family issues. After a half hour of talking about intractable problems, I sheepishly suggested we go down the street for a milkshake. Suddenly family problems would be superficially minimized by sweet milkshakes.

How Would We Respond If 400 Military Bases Surrounded The USA?

With the arrival of Donald Trump as Commander-in-Chief the minute hand has been moved forward. It now stands at 2 minutes and thirty seconds before 12 o’clock.

Original Thought Is The Greatest Pleasure Known To Us

Roman Epicurean and/or hedonistic philosophers would quickly define the greatest pleasures as “eating, drinking, merry making.”  Emperors cleverly built coliseums in every major city from Rome to European colonies. Their sadistic games were held in “Circus Maximus” (the great circus) by which the masses were narcotized and immunized to the fact Rome’s empire was collapsing [...]

Only Humans Will Poison Their Water Supply

Historians define “Four cradles of human civilization” as the Tigris & Euphrates, Indus River, Nile Valley and Huang He (China) as vital regions on Earth which indicate clearly our survival is intimately linked to pure, abundant water.  Jared Diamond’s scholarly books point out how civilizations collapsed because their water supply dwindled.  Cadillac Desert by Marc [...]
