Why am I here?

I am new to blogging and I have a thousand ideas swirling around in my head.  All I know is there is so much to change in the world.  I am insensed by the corruption I see in politicians and people with immense power.  The conventional media contributes to the lies and deceptions and confuses the general public even more.  To understand a little one has to dig very deep into alternative news sources, and it takes time, so one can’t wonder at the great confusion in the general public.

My main interests are Wikileaks, Human Rights, Social Justice, Transparency in the Media and governments.  I am concerned about the plight of the people living in the Middle East and how their efforts towards living decent lives is being twarted by dictators who have been installed by the West.

The events unfolding in the U.S. right now are course for concern, it appears there are many there who want to take the country back to the 19th Century.  The last issue of concern would be the so called ‘financial collapse’ which appears to have occurred because of corrupt banks and lending insitutions.

    Nicely said, all of it. And it’s interesting you mentioned both the plight of people in the Middle East and the corrupt banks and lending institutions here in the West: there’s actually a permanent connection between the two. Curiously, both Syria and Libya were countries with very independent means and policies, both of which tried to be completely self-sustaining and not subject to foreign financial institutions or debt. Both were utterly independent from global banking elites and organisations. And coincidentally both have been utterly torn apart by Western/NATO-led interference.
