It has usually been that the corruption of power wields the sword of injustice and mayhem. History has established time and time once again that all via-out the ages humanity has see horrific atrocities committed by those who have been corrupted by the power they hold. Now, as the globe tumbles it really is way toward another new year there are nonetheless haunting reminders of this summers past that have rekindled precious memories of those wondrous years of so long ago. So normally in reflection not quite a few are asked the inquiries that have to be answered. And, yet it appears that all via-out history humanity keeps rewriting it really is own epitaph. But, somehow like Notre Dame football as of late mankind has located a way to survive to play for one particular more day.
With the multitudes fleeing their homelands each and every and each day, exactly where mayhem and violence continues to show a wanton disregard for the sanctity of life has brought the globe on notice that we nonetheless cannot get it ideal. The malicious intent of quite a few powers that be have only intensified this human travesty. Are leaders so dumbfounded that they cannot see the light of cause, peace and harmony? What will it take to quit this calamity that is sending the globe into a collision course with a pre set date for catastrophe?
Lots of can keep in mind a time of not so long ago exactly where a virtuous nation stood standing tall. But, as we entered a unique age the stature of this nation has now been lowered, hunched more than by the weight of so a great deal corruption and debt. It is not any wonder now for those who are so inclined to ignite a furor of alter to regain the benchmark that was established back not so long ago. Lots of have said that our nations debt is related to the corruption of our standard founding principles. The terrific wealth of our country so little is disbursed as evident as we see in the harsh realities that so quite a few face now.
The difficult options quite a few make is testament to a power supreme. The economic troubles so quite a few face can be traced back to pompous legislation that gave way to our economic institutions to finally have their way. It is not generally recognized now that banks under Title II of the Dodd-Frank Bill has created a frightening new supply for the corruption of power known as the “Orderly Liquidation Authority.” This bill lets the government liquidate (in other words, steal) your dollars in your accounts to make up for the debts the bank has taken out. Adding insult to injury ever due to the fact the new currency law that went into impact this past summer season as soon as you put your dollars in savings, checking and CD accounts the bank now has full authority more than how a great deal you can withdraw. And, in fact they can garnish each last penny to make up the banks shortfalls for their poor investments. They will use your difficult earned dollars devoid of you even recognizing something about it until you try to use your own account. All this making use of the power granted by legislation making use of the reverse Robin Hood analogy exactly where the Banks cannot loose.
In Europe exactly where economic matters are worse specifically with the influx of migrants flowing in from Syria and North Africa has pushed a great deal of Europe’s economic markets poised on the verge of a full meltdown. The recent and ongoing economic crisis in Greece, and now Spain have set the wheels in motion for more economic shock. As in the United States exactly where big corporations and other businesses are hoarding money refusing to spend or invest the identical factors are happening all via-out Europe. According to Moody’s, more than $1.1 trillion euros has currently been hoarded by Europe’s largest corporations. That’s more than a 40% improve from 2008. What is so troubling is that with all the economic troubles Europe and the United States are possessing like astronomical amounts of debt a little group of individuals are becoming obscenely wealthy. That old saying the handful of wealthy get richer whilst the vast multitudes of poor get poorer is incredibly evident in now globe.
With the worlds economic markets in full disarray compounding this monetary crisis in Europe and the United States one particular has to try to define this under no circumstances ending conflict in the Mid-East. Understanding the complexities of what seriously is a violent struggle for more power and manage is vital to securing a lasting peace. Applying a radical strategy to understanding our involvement in any conflict is to recognize that it generally is a power struggle. We have to further fully grasp that the power of one particular leader or nation might be the precise opposite of what other leaders or nations perceive as their own rendition of gaining power and manage more than another. What provides one particular leader a sense of power might not fulfill the needs or ambition of another leader or another country. Different cultures have unique definitions of power, but all power is the identical in that it seeks to manage men and women, whether economically, spiritually, or politically. When Sir John Acton stated “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts completely and terrific guys are almost usually poor guys.” he has been ideal all along. Go back in history quite a few think about Genghis Khan, Napoleon and even Hitler as terrific guys. So what we have now is the fact that the power struggles among leaders of nations and organizations have only continued becoming corrupt.
There are three big players on the globe stage now Russia, China, and the United States, each and every one particular looking for to gain the upper hand in the power struggle of the 21st century. We have noticed it all via-out history exactly where leaders of nations vie for supremacy quite a few a time making use of violent suggests to obtain their ends. Globe War II was a perfect example exactly where Germany under Hitler used what ever force was required to perpetrate his diabolical ends. Right now, when defining power in the United States it is relative effortless. In short, dollars equals power. Corporate trade, the accumulation of wealth and access to trading partners are essential to U.S policy. Our national interests in impact, are the interests of the corporations. It is incredibly evident in the way our government has favored the corporate globe in ever piece of legislation relating to trade agreements type the past 30 years. Each one particular has dealt a death blow although for the American worker in favor of corporate economic gain. This, by shifting American jobs more than seas for reduced wage workers. Let’s not neglect the tax havens either for more corporate gain. Now, we can see the corruption that is stemming from the power that is wielded by our government leaders.
When we look to China whose currency is gaining momentum to replace the US dollar as the world’s first currency sends a incredibly clear picture of their own definition of power. And, when their currency displaces the US dollar and some predict it will occur incredibly quickly, American’s economic circumstance will send shock waves all around the country and send this country into a economic catastrophe not noticed due to the fact the 1930’s.
Russia on the other hand is a little more complex. Even though they value trade, ‘national interests’ are not defined solely by trade. Pride, protection of their own sources and influence inside surrounding nations are just as critical, if not more so. This differences are effortless to fully grasp. The U.S cares little of social policy or the state of democracy inside the nations American corporations are in. And, in quite a few circumstances you could argument that American Corporations seriously invaded foreign nations for their own self interest. Russia, on the other hand, is incredibly concerned with sustaining culture and governing solutions imposed. Lots of believe that the incredibly nature of our assessment of power is only linked to what monetary gain corporations can obtain. And that might be a massive part of the challenge with the way other nations perceive the United States as, a warmonger extreme.
When Russia invaded the Crimea they used the philosophy of a hands on strategy to their actions in the Crimea. Our reaction on the other hand is strictly monetary. What we did in response to Russia’s actions in the Crimea is that we limited their access to dollars by the sanctions we enforced. What is happening now is that the world’s three premier powers are waging a battle primarily based on person power structure. All sides what power yet with differing views of power itself continues to lead to more conflict whether it is trade or big military confrontations.
As the globe continues to bear witness to the corruption of power a great deal of which has currently ignited the flames of violence it is the innocent multitudes that are continually caught in the crossfire of violent reprisals sending the globe into chaos. From these power struggles exactly where leaders or dictators use ideologies whose differences are as stark as day and night continue to push apart what popular components there are in all of us. The Middle East is in flames, Libya continues to be a hotbed of lawlessness, Russia continues massing troops all around the Ukraine whilst sending fighter jets into Syria, and Central Africa continues to harbor more violent extremists as are Afghanistan and Pakistan. Right now, Mexico and Central America are continually becoming run more than by drug cartels which has only created another refugee crisis. All those children that have been swarming into the United States escaping the violent carnage in nations of South and Central America is incredibly a great deal the way so quite a few are fleeing their own nations in the Mid-East and Africa. All due to the fact of the power struggles that have ignited so a great deal horrendous violence.
The globe has certainly turn out to be more unstable, and more violent due to the fact of the corruption of power exactly where governments have turn out to be almost incapable now of meeting the challenges of the 21st century. What is more intimidating is that we are in an age of instant communication exactly where conflicts can and are becoming spread more readily. We just not too long ago saw what happened in the Middle East when the uprisings of the Arab Spring of 2011 led to anarchy in Libya, a counter revolution in Egypt and the ongoing civil war in Syria. It was via instant communication that has intensified the Syria civil war which has turn out to be the big factor in widening the violent carnage all via-out the entire Mid-East further splintering what any hope of reconciliation there could have been among the Sunni and Shite Muslims.
Will the globe turn toward a path peace and harmony? As daunting as that question is in this age and time the fate of all humanity lies with understanding the differences of nations and cultures. The power struggles now are seriously no unique than those in years past but it is the corruption of that power we see now that has only exasperated the delicate balance that humanity plays. We reside in an age now exactly where there has to be an understanding exactly where we all able to seek a popular ground. To give and take like barters, each and every negotiating an amicable agreement to satisfy the hunger for more power. The corruption of power to gain more manage and influence has been going on for centuries. It is the advances in technologies now that has made it crucial that mankind finds other approaches to resolve their differences ahead of Armageddon comes knocking on our door. A unified understanding of the fellowship of mankind is the hope of all humanity. If we could only recognize this ahead of it seriously is too late.
