trump-as-dictator

American Law has failed the USA very obviously and extremely sadly because trump IS in the White House. If the American Law was not totally stuffed (as is the Law in Australia – whereby ANY legal objective can be achieved with enough legal power if it can be afforded) then trump would be in jail. Certainly not able to stand for election as President.

So the question only needs to be slightly adjusted to say: Can trump defeat the American Constitution as easily as he has defeated the American Justice System (usually referred to as TheLaw)? Considering the total lack of responsibility displayed by the Republican Party  by saving trump from impeachment, I must say that trump’s chances of making himself Dictator of American are JUST AS GOOD as his chances of another term as President. GREED and PROFIT 1s the sole political objective of the Republican Party it would seem. With over 100,000 deaths by Covid-19 and the recent race riots in the USA they certainly do not care for the peasants = those who do not vote for the Republican Party.  The Second American Civil War is heating up!

He says that he does not read. However, as that is probably just another lie, I would suggest that any reading he does includes Mein Kampf, all Hitlers political speeches and every word uttered by Putin. He is certainly re-enacting there roles in the world.

Having spent some months of my life working in America I must say that I feel very, very sad watching them destroy themselves under trumps “rule”. Since they were the leaders of the western world I wonder where we all go from here?? While trump is destroying America in his efforts to take control China and Russia are very busy expanding there influence!! And the present-day America are so self-centered that THEY are letting it all happen.

To quote Maurice Chevalier : I am really glad that I am not young any more !!!

Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

The American Scam

It is absolutely essential that all democratic GOVERNMENTS ( and dictators if there was the vaguest hope that they could start to place THE PEOPLE ahead of their personal greed for wealth and power) adopt a TEN-YEAR-PLAN which ties ALL PARTIES and INDEPENDENTS to a long term plan for the betterment of a country and its people. As defined under POLITICS all governments have a scary lack of responsibility as defined for  TheCode .  I should perhaps exclude the Scandanavian countries from the “all”. Denmark, Norway and Sweden have always impressed me as being non-American and their handling of the Covid-19 pandemic seemed so much more humane than the rest of the world.

The Covid-19 pandemic has also unquestionably and dramatically exposed the tragic path to DISASTER  which is being followed by humanity as a whole at this time.

The Emperor’s New Clothes

(see the ref.)  describes so very well what has happened to the American Dream and trump has exposed and demonstrated the effect of GREED (profits at the cost of what will sadly turn out to be the death of 250,000 +/-  USA citizens) as a political tool. I sincerely and humbly hope that this terrible death toll will make the world realise the danger and futility of what I will call the American Scam.

If you look at the current state of the American economy it is glaringly obvious that the whole structure of American Society is one big ponzi scheme.  The Economy is bandied about as a major consideration for all countries around the world and is THE MOST quoted and talked about problem that America, in particular, has at this time. The real truth is that trump is losing a lot of money on his many investments and business ventures because of “the economy”.  Pray tell. What has really changed as a result of the World Pause due to Covid-19????  If he really did own anything of value ( and I suspect that trump was pretty well broke at the time he took over the presidency ) the tangible items themselves have not changed in actual value. It is still there, it still exists and it has not changed in shape, size or weight (MASS). What has changed is the perception of its value based on a valuation placed on it in terms of “the economy”.  “The economy”  is in fact a statistical evaluation placed on paper money which is, in itself, merely an agreed value established by the statistical analysis of “the economy”. Ooops. Is this not in fact an example of a ponzy scheme on an international basis. The most significant determinator of “the economy” is the amount of money spent. Any money spent. And the government can boost “the economy” by paying businesses and people a large sum of money to spend. ( This, in turn, using paper money which exists because it is printed by the government.  There is no longer the need to back money in circulation with gold. For example;  in Zimbabwe there was a time, and it may still be the case, that the metal content of the copper and silver coins was far greater than the actual purchasing power of the coin. ) The amount of money spent contributes significantly to the GDP. The higher the GDP the better “the economy”. To me, this scenario seems very similar to the Oozlum bird.

Because the Western world HAS looked to America as the example, the pace-setter for Western Culture,  the whole of the Western World is now in tatters as the American Dream turns out to be the American Scam. I think that all intelligent people and all rational nations as a whole should be extremely grateful to trump for exposing the American Dream to be the Scam that it is. When the lives of the people who ARE the Nation become less important than the artificial so-called economy of the country then the time for change is very clear.

The American Scam has been comprehensively exposed by trump as the mafia-style-godfather posing as the President of the U.S.A. What trump has actually done is created a huge rift between the true people of the United States and his followers who represent America. The whole country is no longer the United States of America. Strangely similar to the American civil war with the Northern and Southern States.

These issues, Covid-19 and the demise of the American Dream, result in the re-structure of the TEN-YEAR-PLAN which will now been updated. I am sure that there are many updates to come. Especially after I finish reading all YOUR input !!

Keep safe, Jude

TEN-YEAR-PLAN v2

Covid-19 and the demise of the American Dream requires a new TEN-YEAR-PLAN with significantly changed priorities for Australia so that we can come out of the economic crisis, probably more slowly, but with a committed objective of putting THE PLANET as number one priority for the future in terms of TheCode.

Australia can be the leaders in this global initiative because:
a) We can afford to do so.
b) We could elect a Government which has the intelligence, experience and foresight to achieve this objective
c) WE could ( ALL !! ) adjust our thinking to be more altruistic but less greedy because the Australia people have so much capacity to be able to do good and to look after other people
d) Australians, as a whole, have compassion and we have already shown our ability to ACHIEVE in this competitive world.
e) There is not a sport in the world where Australians have not achieved significant results !! Australia has been asked to lead the WHO investigation into the WHO’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic. This is the highest praise that could be given to any country. Australia has only got the 55th highest population in the world with 25.5m people and we rate as 13th in the world with a nominal GDP of $1.314 x 10 power of 12 ( roughly 1/20 of USA with a population of 331m – reducing by 1000 PER DAY from Covid-19 at this time = 21 May 2020 )

The TEN-YEAR-PLAN becomes more important, no critical, with every-day and is consequently a LIVE PROJECT which can change from day-to-day so the Page that contains my list of suggested projects will change as additional projects are highlighted by world events at this critical time in world history !!

Please refer to A TEN-YEAR-PLAN regularly. I sincerely believe that this can be the starting point for a better world. The Australian Government has shown that they have the ability to put this plan in place. How can we persuade them to do so.

I am sure that I am not on my own,
Keep safe,
Jude
