Okay. Here’s the official DhesBar Publications take on all this Russian/U.S. cyber war hacking controversy.
First, understand that I arrive at conclusions from the perspective of one who has stood on the front lines, in the Western Pacific, the Mediterrean, and on the shores of Japan, eyes fixed towards the Koreas. I do not now, nor have I ever relied on a talking head from Fox, CNN, ABC, etcetera, for my information, or untrustworthy propaganda. Therefore, I hope you will find this entry not only issue appropriate, but thought provoking as well. I strive not to spew out rehashed, canned news releases/opinions like some burned out, shamed newscasters do; I try to instill a sense of involvement and even ownership on the part of my reader. For what happens globally is not “their” problem, it’s “our” problem as well.
So, consider first and foremost that we, every single one of us is now and forever will be Earth bound humans. No matter our so called races, cultures, ethnicities, no matter our bordered country of origin, abstract and fluid as those borders are, we the people are (presently) nothing more than expendable pawns, driven, pitted against one another by power crazed, greedy, often unqualified “world leaders,” many of those self appointed. These political machines clash in deadly, costly, senseless, seemingly never ending territorial struggles in sole quest of more personal wealth, fame, notoriety, more oil, more gold, more real estate. The names of the countries actively jockeying for global supermacy change with the tides, but presently the top three are Russia, China, and the United States. Engaged in a pseudo conflict, alledgedly over concern of the Syrian people, the Russian and U.S. governments have collectively, essentially leveled cities and towns, not only murdering untold numbers of innocents, but driving millions more people into chaos. All the while, the citizens of both the U.S. and Russia clamor over deterioating condition in their respective countries, both in terms of failing infrastructures (like collapsing freeway bridges), and social/economic conditions (like healthcare and jobs). This will remain to be the worsening global situation as long as citizens, of all nations, tolerate such inept, irresponsible leadership.
The alternative is clear; the time has come for the inevitable unification of all Earthbound societies. Yes, world peace is achievable; there can be an end to constant fighting and warring, the massacre of millions, the displacement of millions, the creation of wastelands where cities once stood. You see, where a handful of self focused world leaders fail, millions of strong, solidly bonded citizens can succeed. The survival of our global societies then, falls on the societies themselves. And it falls on the peoples, the citizens of the top nations to initiate this unification process. Without the support of the masses, out of control leaders are rendered powerless. Weapons of dispicable destruction will be lowered, and tools of global cooperation raised. Hatreds based on, founded on ignorance and false, subjugating, hypocritical mythological doctrines and insanity must cease; acceptance of the fact that we are all Earthbound brothers and sisters, trusted stewards of this planet must take hold.
Yes, the hands of the few can level a city, but it is the minds, the hands, the ideas, the love and spirit of cooperation on the part of millions that will ultimately provide our decendents peace and prosperity. We the global people are all we have, if we fail, then we are doomed, and we are doomed by our own complacency, not the hands of any lunatic.
A supportive anectdote to the above. In the summer of 1975, I, and two shipmates, wandered the streets of Hong Kong. We made our way into a cozy little drinking establishment that was alive with familiar (American) music and plenty of laughter. On reaching the bar, we were greeded warmly by the barkeep, a stout man who also sported raised eyebrows at our presence. We noticed we were also drawing a few glances from the partying clientel. The barkeep politely inform us that we were in the company of predominantly Russian sailors. But, we were not asked to leave; we were not denied service. We were simply advised. On glancing once again towards the partying group, one of the Russian sailors raised his glass in respectful salute. I will not divulge the rest of this story other than to say we stayed and enjoyed a fun, enlightening evening.
You see, people are people; all have dreams, all have families, all seek peace and prosperity. Not only continued prosperity for the 1%, but prosperity for all citizens. Personally? I could give a shit what was in HRCs emails. All I know is I didn’t read a single one, and I’m pretty sure most busy voters didn’t either. Americans voted for DT out of frustration and anger with the do nothing, accomplish nothing, improve nothing Washington estabishment, not because anything Valdemier did, said, or hacked. So, I’m pleading with you to wake up to the truth. Slap your own consciousness around and stop believing the deceptions. We need citizens, not chattel. Join your global brothers and sisters and reclaim your world.
