“(…) this documentary exposing daily life inside Saudi Arabia. Public executions, including beheadings and crucifixions, 'religious' police enforcing Sharia law (...), horrendous conditions in jails teaming with political prisoners, spectacular wealth for the few and slums for the masses, and public 'education' that teaches children to kill Christian, Jewish and Shia 'infidels' - these are just some of the horrors produced by a regime that is sustained thanks only to its 'most-favored-nation' status with the Western banking cartel.”  Zaudi Arabia ….

UNDER-REPORTED
“Australia is one of seven countries that Forbes magazine says is the "most likely to suffer a debt crisis" within the next three years. China, whose economy has faltered in the past two years, comes No. 1 on the list of seven, but Australia is No. 2. Sweden, Hong Kong, South Korea, Canada and Norway complete the list of infamy.”

ERIC ZUESSE - “How can it be that the same news-medium that reported, on 22 April 2015, that the Obama Administration allows countries it signs trade-pacts with to murder their trade-union organizers and insists upon continuing to permit those murders, has now also reported on 24 March 2016, «The Obama Administration Just Took A Huge Step On Worker Safety: It’s known as the silica rule, and it’s a big frigging deal»?”

“The US-NATO war in Syria and the Brussels terror attacks“  Yes, of course there’s a link…

NUCLEAR
“Research has been ongoing through IRID and JAEA to attempt to develop new materials and technologies that can withstand the extremely high radiation levels near the melted fuel.“  All very good …. BUT - it begs the question of humans in the area……..

Chernobyl - 30 years later….. “Researchers who continue to study the effects of the radioactive fallout have been examining locally produced food and forest products, both in Ukraine and Russia; they have discovered radioactive isotopes that are dramatically higher than what is permissible for human ingestion – 16 times as much, in fact, in some cases, according to findingsreleased recently by Greenpeace.“  And that was a baby compared to Fukushima...

BOOK

======================================
“Real compassion kicks butt and takes names and is not pleasant on certain days. If you are not ready for this FIRE, then find a new-age, sweetness and light, perpetually smiling teacher and learn to relabel your ego with spiritual sounding terms. But, stay away from those who practice REAL COMPASSION, because they will fry your ass, my friend.”

~~ Ken Wilber
