Armies and Banks
While Armies and Banks rule the world, I see little hope for a puffing Peace Train to arrive. Military strength should only be used in defence of human rights, so when it is commanded by economic and nationalistic self interest, we end up with what we have today, humanity surrounded and attacked on all sides.
Freedom – A Peaceful Solution
In 2021 the French President announced sweeping new laws against religious “separatism” aimed at freeing Islam in France from “foreign influences”.
