The United States is withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Commission over its decisions regarding Israel!!!!

So, what this is about is our wanting the Human Rights Commission to refrain from condemning inhumane actions because we are supporters of and perpetrators of inhumane actions.

Get it together America.  We are becoming every minute more of a menace to the world and the terrible truth here is the menace is the most militaristic in the world, this because the American people have successfully been led to believe that we are the good in the world.

A mockery of human rights made by one calling the UN body a mockery!  Israel and those who support it despite what cruelty it might met out have given Trump and friends a pass on the cruelty they are now meting out.

The Trump administration withdrew from the United Nations Human Rights Council on Tuesday in protest of what it perceives as an entrenched bias against Israel and a willingness to allow notorious human rights abusers as members.

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, who has sought major changes on the council throughout her tenure, issued a blistering critique of the panel, saying it had grown more callous over the past year and become a “protector of human rights abusers, and a cesspool of political bias.” She cited the admission of Congo as a member even as mass graves were being discovered there, and the failure to address human rights abuses in Venezuela and Iran.

“I want to make it crystal clear that this step is not a retreat from our human rights commitments,” she said during a joint appearance with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at the department. “On the contrary. We take this step because our commitment does not allow us to remain a part of a hypocritical and self-serving organization that makes a mockery of human rights.”

HTHBAA Screed

Our government has become cruel and vicious and, therefore, good people must do what is necessary to remove this government.  We can wait and hope that some branch of government will do something to stop the cruelty but it is likely that the people who cannot tolerate the cruelty will do what is necessary to force those other branches to act.

We ran out of time a while back and the time we are borrowing is not time being used well because our inability to move things in a different direction is harming good numbers of people in terrible ways.

It is often necessary for good people to suffer some for their goodness and at this point in time, when too many have it too good and considerably more do not have it good enough, to absolve ourselves of complicity in the cruelty being enacted in our name, we have to look at the system that allowed for the current regime to take power.  What is happening now has happened before.  The difference is that what lay just before the surface for a good long time has shown its face.  It has been ugly.  Many have died and more have been significantly harmed by the system we have accepted as normal for many decades, a century and more.

We need to change the system to permanently end the cruelty; we have to stop taking the gifts it offers for our complicity.

There is much that seems nice to have before one calculates the actual cost of some of those things, the human misery it creates, the inhumane treatment of others that is given tacit support.  How many were tortured, killed, made to live terrible lives so that the people of our country could have bananas and rubber?  How many suffered and continue to suffer (the land was raped and destroyed) for our having sugar?  And how many die and suffer and live miserable lives so that our corporations can get for us what they have told us we need.

The madness must stop but it cannot be stopped unless we admit that what is is madness, that cruelty seen and unseen is cruelty, that when our fellow human beings are shown to us to be sub human and we accept the assessment in anyway we too are both cruel and mad.

 

HTHBAA A way or no way

HTHBAA! Come on now people, get together! We need to do some real face to face, meet in small groups so we can see one another, re-humanize and then think about one another as we go about our business. We need to talk and we need to talk now honestly about the inhumanity of this society in which we live. We are seeing a phase in our evolution toward a world in which business is more important than people, in which too many people, to do their business have to take something away from others and we now do this rather automatically and without real concern for the pain we are causing. Our economic system has desensitized us. We have decided to do what we can to avoid empathy because a human response to many a thing would cause us to feel guilt for what “has to be done,” for what is pragmatic in the context of a conditioned concept of what life “has to be,” what I have to do to do what is right for me and mine. Indeed, the good deed–having enough for your family to do well, for example–often involves disregard for the welfare of others because “I have to do what the boss tells me,” “If I do not take advantage of an opportunity that causes others pain, someone else will.

Insanity accepted as normal

I will post examples of things taken-for-granted as normal that are patently absurd.

Consider how many times over what a school teacher or police officers makes in comparison to a comedian like Jimmy Kimmel or Jon Stewart.  What is the value of the work based upon?  And is such valuing reasonable, good for the good of the society?

If not, why would people allow such to be the reality that is?

Hope they die
