Bombs, ,Yemen and thinking critically….
I listen on Radio 4 to the frantic calls of a man in Yemen searching through the ruins of his home for his children and wife. The bombs raining down come from the Saudi led coalition to which we contribute and support . We are guilty because we allow the arms trade to flourish…we are guilty because we put jobs before lives.. is it no wonder that some turn to terrorism,,…is it no wonder that views of the west are so bad , and that western countries are so loathed?
It’s difficult to stand back, it’s harder to own up to our own prejudices and take a more complex position. It challenges us all to learn, to discover and research the truth. Their are so many who don’t want you to learn and discover the truth. The education system is set up to create a workforce that is docile. It’s not about thinking it out for yourself..they don’t want an educated, critical electorate..it would be their worst nightmare. And yet it is the only way we will ever discover our common humanity and reinvigorate our souls. Trump, Farage,Johnson do not want you to think for yourselves.
