~ Carlos Fuentes (1928-2012)
In the Land of the Smug
Canadian violations of Global Human Ethics, sanctions anyone?
No right to water
Continued UN chastisement for continued Racism and mistreatment of indigenous Canadians
Canadian company set to mine a sacred mountain of the Wixarika nation
Canadians standing up for themselves
The Maple Spring protests, where they want:
The right to education for everyone
The right to a healthy environment
The rights of the indigenous peoples to their aboriginal lands,
The right to enjoy a responsible and democratic government,
The right to pacifism and international solidarity,
The right to a local, sustainable, mutually supportive social economy
If we are to have a true Global Human Ethics that means that everyone has to follow them*. Which includes things like treatment of indigenous and gay marriage.
All of which supersedes any religion or faith or belief as a fundamental Global way of living
Pray to the current Emperor of Canada
The world is changing. KEEP UP!
And so it goes -:)
* perhaps the UN-equivalent (a body will have to be created that actually has enforcing powers outside of sanctions and observing) will work out something where to be a "franchised" member of the World, one has to agree and if they don't, then the country can still exist as a sovereign state but will not be franchised
