When strike action turns to war action we do not need bulldogs with rubber teeth.

When strikers use live ammunition, or other weapons to inflict bodily harm, they are no longer strikers.   They have crossed the line and became terrorists.?

The minute a striker arms him/her self with a weapon or a fire lighter he/she should receive the confrontation given to any terrorist world wide.

Having said that, we need to address the real reason behind the violence.
The buck stops with the politicians.  

There should be a rule of as to how much company executives may earn as compared to the workers.  There should be an even gap between all ranks or earners, from the bottom up.    (Say a 15% increase in earnings between all grades and not 5% at the lower end and 600% at the top)

Neither should the earnings of workers (and executives)  be fixed, but should be determined according to the profitability of the mine or company.   Earnings should be based of net profits.   It could be high – low – or nothing, but the same rule should apply to all workers and executives.

It is time that the gap between glut and starvation is addressed.

Unfortunately it can not be done by reigning politicians because they will not be willing to give up their luxurious lifestyles.  This is something the country will have to vote for and it is something only a new parliament can implement across the board.

The best we can do, for now,  is to run a few pilot initiatives, just to test this new fairer profit driven even-gap system.

The earth crossed the line of sustainability!

At this time, when we are nearing the 2015 initiative to make poverty history,
the increasing unsustainable growth of humanity is squashing that dream of ever being realized.

Seventy five percent of the human population is struggling to survive.

There simply are not enough resources to continue feeding the world at the current poverty crises rate;
Let alone when poverty is history and everyone can financially afford to buy food.

Humanity has to reduce its birth rate and strive for a zero population growth.

There is not enough space on earth to grow food to end hunger without destroying
our natural resources that is already at unsustainable level.   

There is an urgency to address two main problems.
1.    The glut among high earners and
2.    The birth rate of the poverty-stricken masses.

We need to strive for only live child per woman.

Every birth should consciously be planned and every child should have the right to enjoy all that the earth and her environment has to offer. 

It is time that we are educated to become responsible for the space we occupy on earth.

The power of the future should be in our hands.

Have you ever thought how much fish the world harvest from the sea for human consumption each day
