Welcome to my blog, coming to you from the rainforests of Belize, Central America. I regard no subject as being ‘off limits’ but I’m not going to be bleating about how our leaders aren’t interested in us, are dumb, corrupt and all around useless. Trust me, people at large, their governments, the international bankers: all are collectively responsible for the mess we find ourselves in, today. We are all hostages to our nature and our genetic inheritance and, yet, we have been blessed as a species with two divine gifts: conscience and rational thought. No one can make a rational decision without first obtaining and then considering the facts. True, politicians seldom let the facts get in the way of a decision, but that does not give the rest of us a pass. To have been given such gifts and deliberately refuse to use them; to willfully choose to live in ignorance when so many of us have ready access to the knowledge our ancestors accumulated over thousands of years, and which our contemporaries are still accumulating is, to me, the abomination. Ignorance is the source of everything that divides us, as a species, one from the other, one race from another, one religion from another. Though it may sound pretentious, I’d like to do my bit to help people find their way to knowledge, and the light.
