This is tragic, inhumane and a clear sign of corruption. Aside from daily headlines, reading and listening to all the rhetoric, the real challenges for humanity are on the rise. But, this headline actually points to major weakness globally and not a problem of one nation only. It is the failure of all humanity; all seven billion plus. It is ultimately the ignorance of people in general who follow and allow corrupt and incompetent so called leaders to make decisions. These leaders manipulate human behavior and direction in order to fulfill their own twisted desires. The end result is a creation of powers and governments that cater to narrow interest groups while ignoring the basic needs of their citizens.
We are now witnessing the direct results of disastrous politics, warfare strategies, economic and social dysfunctions. The migration crisis, modern slavery, child exploitation, mass unemployment, poverty, and income inequality are all results of poor leadership and self-interest.
It is no longer okay to watch, read, and look the other way. It is our moral obligation to get engaged in all forms of non-violent humane movements to stop mediocrity and not allow evil to dominate and dictate our future.
