A Lot Going On

There is a lot going on in the world right now, from the continued unrest in the United States, largely related to the upcoming 2020 elections, to Brexit for the UK which will happen on October 31, 2019, the U.S. trade war with China and the implementation of tariffs on both sides, to the building of a wall on the U.S. Mexico border, the burning Amazon rain forest, the protests in Hong Kong and their resistance to Mainland China's increasing interference in the semi-autonomous region's governance, not to mention worries in Taiwan and Macao over the same issues, and more coming to light about China's truly aggressive expansionism (Part I and Part II) in other parts of the world, and the internment of entire populations of people within China in what they call "re-education camps,"etcetera. The list goes on and on. 

It may seem that the world is standing on its head. But it's a good idea to do some research beyond the limited blurbs that appear on mainstream media shows, because there's a great deal they're missing, or at the least seem slow to pick up on. While the unrest may be unnerving and leave one wondering, "What will be the outcome of all of this?" it is having a positive effect on many people, including myself, and waking up the slumbering citizens of the world. This didn't just start this month, or last month, or last year. It has been building for quite some time, as many of the commentators and subjects in the linked videos above indicate. Now it's time that we all put our thinking caps on and find some solutions to these issues plaguing our world. No more sleeping. Nap time is over. Let us hope that our better selves can find peaceful resolutions.
