    When people in powerful positions of authority in the government, religion and international private sector state a mistruth or a fact that is outright wrong, it is taken as the truth by the establishment of that nation. Too many nations of people are misled by the half-truths of their religious and government leaders that the mass media tell to them on a regular basis. Not knowing the truth to the problems we face as a nation of people in an interdependent world makes the problems worst.

    There are many good examples of this on all side, all around the world. It is the degree and magnitude that varies in the importance. The people in power that want absolute control are the biggest threat to peace and security of the world. Great Britain Empire dominated the world during the 19th and early 20th Century as the United States has since the second half of the 20th Century. It’s the sustainability of the rapidly evolving world that is in questioned. With more of the world’s resources being allocated for wartime than tools for peace and prosperity.

    When one nation consumes five times its share of a non-renewable natural resource and it is borrowing the money to do so. When the so-called riches nation in the world owes more money to other nations than any other nation in the world, there is something wrong with this picture. A nation built on consumption with no savings for the future is doomed for self-destruction. The massive waist by the privilege few and the lack of decency of the great masses of poor people is the foundation of lies that are perpetrated to preserve the status quo of the establishment.
