India a solid democracy? I could hardly contain my laughter. This country is among the
most corrupt nation on the planet it is more corrupt than China for heaven sake. Anything
that gets done is based on bribery.
Besides if China was as big a threat as you say why are we shipping them raw resource
power and building our factories there to put our people out of work? It is a real question
because eventually we will be in a scrap with China but we keep building them up anyway.
The Islamic world is another matter. What we have done is make a segment of their area
rich the rest are kept ignorant. It is ignorance that is the biggest enemy for ignorance and
lack of opportunity breeds the frustration and violence that we see coming at us.
To protect ourselves there are remedies. First we must ensure our children are educated
properly. We must ensure we have good jobs with a strong middle class. In addition we
should be working to ensure our foreign business dealings are ethical to raise the standard
of living in other nations so they can afford to buy our goods and services.
What have we done? Shipped our jobs to the lowest bidder so we can work those in the
third world for almost nothing so we can have cheaper running shoes. Then we have free
trade so we can lower our standard of living. Everyone is frustrated and angry so we then
build up our military so the boys at the top can get even richer.
What we need is common sense not a tightened grip by the wealthy few who have never
done a real days work in their lives. Yes we need defence but this is defending a small few
at the expense of the rest of us.
