International Day of Peace

The United Nations’ (UN) International Day of Peace is celebrated on September 21 each year to recognize the efforts of those who have worked hard to end conflict and promote peace. The International Day of Peace is also a day of ceasefire – personal or political.

The more important question is about day two.

There is a need for continuing the work to a final conclusion:365 a year.

With this actuality, progress can continue to be strived for with concrete outcomes and a direction to improve on the day to day peace, ad infinitum…

Individuals need to be engaged, repeatedly to attempt a dialogue and affirmative action for ongoing continual peace.

John Lennon said it best, “Give peace a chance.”

Day by day, an actual scale to approach for everyone, in a spirit of collaboration and cooperation.

Child Abuse Is Plain And Simple

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turpin_case

Children’s rights are front and centre when considering extreme examples of child abuse.

The world may harbour many more problems for the special needs of children.

We need a charter for children’s rights to help support the legal rights and obligations for them.

A spectrum of possible outcomes exist in reality,

Not to put too fine a point on it, ‘we live a little and die a little’…

Like Hailie’s Comet, the cycle may only come around in along time

Or like some moths, a life cycle may be a few day.

To live a life worth living, most of us put limits on what we do,

A happy medium is usually the rule of thumb.

Society is complex, and what is good for society is the rule,

But what is good for the individual does not always align with society,

Currently there are many outcomes that fall short of the individual but bode well for society.

Education is the key to making a informed decision:

Officials have unveiled a new proposal that will help fund plans to implement universal basic income across the country.

As more and more jobs are threatened by robots, officials have come up with a plan to eventually introduce universal basic income – which is basically a minimum salary that will be paid to all it’s citizens. Though it seems like a great idea, it will be expensive. How expensive? At least $43 billion.

To pay for it, early this week it was announced that online casinos would be permitted to operate. It’s expected that tax revenues collected from these online casinos and those from marijuana will be enough to pay for its plans to implement universal basic income.

“We have decided to permit online gambling and allow a few licensed and regulated casinos who have been determined to be legitimate and real. The taxation structure will be similar to how existing lottery systems operate, except this will be on a bigger level.

When questioned as to what would happen with tax revenues in the meantime, they said “these tax revenues will go towards funding various pension plans, and later, these two will be replaced with a universal income system.”

After the announcement was made, it was said that only a few online casinos are permitted to operate in the country, with Grand Mondial receiving the first license “because they helped draft legislation, and have been reviewed and examined to be fully compliant and legitimate.”

Oh Country (no free lunch)!

Our place is pretty good, but there are things going on I don’t like.

I really love this place and tend to over look stuff that I should pay more attention to.

I protect me and my family and people I know, but who am I to tell anyone what to do.

One guy I know, makes a point, we aren’t as free as we believe.

But our place is better than most.

Sure, I take it for granted and I tend to care too much.

But the neighbours place is 10 times bigger and he is 10 times angrier than me.

What am I going to do?

I’m going to see what happens next.  It may be time to move.

Baby Boomers

This group of people had a softer simple life because of money, low population, and less technology.

But they went through a lot of social change in the sixties, seventies and eighties.

Their relative lack of technology left them with a slower, but more physical society.

Yet, to live through change is hard for anyone and any generation.

We are all the same in this respect.

There are many Baby Boomers alive and well living in society today.

Ask them to take the quiz above with you and get to know your neighbor, friend or relative.
