I don’t think so.
To me this is a country based on the old beliefs of warlords and tribes. Our whole system is a battle for those who had power to still maintain that power no matter the cost.
That we are now in the twenty-first century with many differing views being expressed, and heard, and acted upon means to me less stability rather than more.
Just three or four years ago I thought that the world was on the mend. Getting better.
Any way, the state of the world was supposedly getting better. Now Amnesty International points out that there is a decline in values – not a decline in wealth but in the abuses of power that the wealthy have over the rest of us.
Deep sadness and anger fill my head and my heart. I can still laugh and prat around with my sister and cry over social stupidities with my friends but I no longer feel that ‘getting better’ feeling that I had.
