I have all but ignored this blog for the past couple of years for reasons that would be extremely boring for you but, obviously, very interesting for me. So I’ll spare you the details.
What might be interesting for you is that I have been touring and delivering workshops from Russia to South Africa, and in this term have made a few observations that might stir some comment.
First, the toughness of the Russian people never ceases to amaze. I recently conducted a 7 – Day Bootcamp on Organisation Fundamentals to about twenty engaged people, and the result was extraordinary. Going back there in August for another round. Notable about this event was the complete absence of these fundamentals in the Russian marketplace. It has always been my thought that these should be taught to every child before the age of ten. To discover that there are people passing their entire lifetimes without them is just mind-boggling. In spite of this, these people survive 40 degrees below zero winters and keep smiles on their faces.
Second, It amazes me how so many get so caught up in things of no consequence. Of particular application over the past couple of years has been the observation that when you set out to solve a problem and the problem doesn’t solve, you’re solving the wrong problem! The election fervour in the US, for an example, is an obvious illustration of this. The primary issues facing the planet today are being completely ignored from the podium, while candidates for the apparently high office of President go on about the pitfalls of their opponents. Like schoolyard kids vying for the “Best Bully” award.
Concerning the environment, noone pays attention to the number one destructive agent to the environment. It’s not Oil. It’s not emissions or the fact that you don’t separate your trash in to piles of organic and non-organic. It’s Agribusiness: the business of raising and feeding cows for consumption. You really need to google this subject for an eye-opening experience. HUGE chunks of the rainforest in South America has been turned in to grazing land for cattle that will be fed to US consumers. The effect of this alone on the oxygen content on this planet just boggles the mind. Without oxygen the chemtrail issues become daunting and the “global warming” things continue to alarm. But try to bring this to anyone’s mind – as Opra did some years ago – and you find out why you never hear of this problem. Agribuisness: the number one polluter by a factor of 100.
You also never hear of the recidivism problem (people returning to jail). Since the prison system has moved in to the business world and these joints are privately run, there is no motivation to FIX these people. More convicts mean higher profits. Of course the Encanada program some years back proved that we can eliminate the recidivism problem – which is a HUGE drain on state and federal resources. But the program was canned due to vested interests. Crime goes on unchecked, and we move closer and closer to the surrender of ALL human rights in order to handle these false-flag situations.
The criticism of Muslims is another issue that has rattled my cage a bit. Creating a scapegoat as the cause of these false-flags set up by moneyed interests is an egregious assault on the security of the planet. When we start naming an entire culture as the reason for our issues, we revisit times in our past best described as psychotic.
Seeing other parts of the world has been quite therapeutic for me as these challenges are well known in areas outside of the US, and there is real hope of addressing them in less-monitored environments.
I rant. But it feels good to at least have done something again to get this blog popping.
Tell me your thoughts!
All the best,
