"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
I say no, but for a different reason....there's too much money to be made from war. Some corporations will want to keep nations going to that end. And - where there's oil, there may be war.
I more or less believe in 1 world government, but not run by corporations, and history has shown that trying to "conquer" the world has rarely worked out. But 1 government, made up of representatives from all over the world, in a counsel, with all parts of the world working together for the betterment of all, instead of fighting each other......too utopian, I suppose.
I believe Gore did win, and Bush should have gone to jail for the 'scan stolen election' we didn't elect him. Why did we go along with this? how can it be fixed? they are going to do it again...
I'm not seeing it either Will take more pain to wake some folks up enough to make them act, move, protest , speak out . A lot depends on who wins in Nov. . If its Mitt we know what he & Ryan plan to do . More corp perks More deregulation Repeal health care . End EPA GOP cares not one iota about public safety, education, enviorment . Dump more toxic pollutants into our water and air . Bagger congress & Corp interests / lobbyists will run Mitt . Ronmey has shown NO sign of integrity or guts He can not even stand up to Trump or Rushs ugly crass comments, smears . Mitt will cower under Irans dictator . Cheney and Rove may run our gov't and foreign policy Just as Cheney did under Bush ! . www.factcheck.org www.politifact.com www.congress.org I keep thinking what would it be like if Gore had been Pres..Very very different Fla Jeb & Fla courts handed Bush the election. in 2000. I have NO doubt.
How about yes first, and then no? Unfortunately, I think we must experience a longer "train of abuses and usurpations" before enough Americans become populists to support an effective uprising. It's still true that "mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed." We could save one helluva lot of grief if the populist uprising started today, but I'm not seeing it.
