In February 2013 Mozambican immigrant Mido Macia was brutally dragged to his death behind a South African police vehicle. But such atrocities can no longer be hidden from the public: in an age of widespread video technology the eyes of the world are watching, and judging.
US police needlessly killed Leon Rosby’s dog as they arrested him for filming an incident, and provoked global outrage. For further details see this video clip: http://youtu.be/Ej-
Nelson Mandela, 1918-
The human race has come a long way, technically and socially. But spiritually, have we evolved at all since we lived in caves?
Education is one of the greatest emancipating forces of our age, and a force for good. Maybe that’s why the elite choose to muddy the waters with disinformation.
The statistics are appalling. 9 million people die each year from starvation, yet we produce enough food to feed everyone. It’s a gross failure of capitalist economics.
More and more people are seeing through the veil of corporate doublespeak and are seeking alternative systems that fulfil the needs of everyone, not just a privileged elite.
We’re only here for a short while. Celebrate your time here, and maybe make a contribution towards a better world for future generations.
Just as in the Great Depression of 1929 the current economic crisis disadvantages the masses, whilst the elite actually benefit. The banks and corporate fraudsters hold the world to ransom. It’s time for change.
Capitalism has failed the masses in almost every way, breeding selfishness, elitism and contempt, and a growing number of experts are beginning to question its ethos. Contrary to conventional wisdom it’s not the only way to run the world.
More and more people are examining alternatives to the capitalist model, and we will feature them extensively on this website. See also this article for further analysis.
Spiritual growth is important, but organised religion just separates us into cross-
Much of what organised religion teaches us has been used over millennia by a privileged elite to control the masses.
Will this be the sorry epitaph of the human race?
Listen to your inner voice, and choose your destiny wisely.

Read the label carefully! Many products put profit over quality, and often over ethics too.
This great piece of artwork, painted on a houseboat in south west England, sums up popular sentiment over the invasion of Iraq in 2003 by Western forces.
Orwell’s 1949 novel has proved chillingly prophetic, in the light of recent advances in technology and revelations about corporate monoliths such as NSA and GCHQ spying on unwitting citizens.
In 2013 the Assad regime in Syria was caught using illegal sarin gas in the civil war, which caused over 1,000 casualties, many of them children.
Scores of Muslim Brotherhood supporters were killed by the military dictatorship in Cairo in August 2013 for protesting against the deposition of the democratically elected Mohamed Morsi.
Many people suspect that a dark, hidden cabal, a privileged illuminati, are really in control of our world and have been for centuries. Greg Palast’s The Best Democracy Money Can Buy is well worth reading in this context.
Following on from the previous meme, Greg Palast asserts that even massive international organisations such as the UN’s World Bank are corrupt, and have hidden agendas that are dictated by vested interests.
Science can be the saviour of the human race as well as its executor. Nanotechnology has the potential to radically transform our world, eliminating poverty and making capitalism redundant. Click on the meme for further information.
It’s important that the West doesn’t get caught up in another war in the Middle East based on fallacies, half-
Worrying times: the current escalation of military conflict around the world, especially Africa, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe, could of course all be orchestrated. Regardless of this it could escalate into something that spirals totally out of control.
Barack Obama has intimated that the US now seeks greater harmony amongst nations, especially in the Middle East, and has criticised illegal Israeli settlements; but it’s unlikely that all Congress share his sentiments. This is an age that cries out for the hand of peace that he ostensibly proffers.
The UK’s Tori£$ are traditionally a party of vested interests: those of the rich, privileged elite. Conservative by name, conservative by nature; few believe that they are capable of any real, positive and, most importantly, all-
There’s much cause for concern, from the age-
Greater spiritual growth is surely a prerequisite of future evolution, at both an anthropological and an individual level, helping to destroy the old tribal barriers of hate, mistrust, and prejudice.
Our ancestors shaped the world we live in: mistakes were made based on a self-
