Post A ray of hope for us yet
My last few posts in the news section have been post that have been about my genuine disgust by some of the actions of politicians and suffering that goes on within our country and other parts. Well I was on the Huffington Post website and they had this youtube clip on there.

It is worth a watch very well done at the end offers that ray of hope of Human Beings at there best.

Compassion is lacking in our world. But we can make an effort, and I am sure that it will slowly come backa.

And the very first time we heard it, we all recognized that "compassionate conservatism" was coined by right-wing spin doctors, as a justification for extreme selfishness.

Well to quote an American well Canadian who I think said it best:
"The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness."
John Kenneth Galbraith

There is no way I can understand in a wealthy country such as ours that there is such a thing as hunger, poverty and homelessness.
I keep reminding myself of what I read about the turn of the century in 1900. Britain had two thirds of the wealth of the world in this country and yet many lived in desperate conditions. I see things have not improved for some.
