In in his latest blog I will try and make some predictions for 2017. Although I am sure that there will be some surprises in the world.
In Europe there will be a continued reaction against the EU.Geert Wilders could become the prime minister of the Netherlands and the five star movement could come to power in Italy.This could put both countries membership of the Euro currency under strain.Francois Fillon will almost certainly become president of France. Although his neo liberal policies could cause social tensions.
Here in Britain moves towards brexit will continue. Although the Tory government will lose some popularity due to the NHS crisis.
The big world event is of course Donald Trump taking over as president of the USA. He says he wants to improve relations with Russia which is good news. However his attitude towards China and Iran leave some cause for concern.
It looks like the Syria civil war may be coming to an end after the Russia,Turkey and Iranian recent agreement. This will be very good news indeed.
I will stick my neck out and predict a major financial crisis in October 2017. Due to the massive debt in the world financial system.
In conclusion keep fighting for peace and social justice and lets hope we make it through to 2018. God bless you all.
Without doubt 2016 has been a very eventful year which produced some major changes in the world that surprised some people. However not myself.
The two major changes in the world were of course Brexit and Donald Trumps election as President of the USA. Both of these two changes were correctly predicted by myself.
The first change Brexit, Britain,s vote to leave the European Union is a decision which I very much welcomed as I feel that the EU is becoming a technocratic fascist dictatorship which overides the national sovereignty of national parliaments. I myself participated in LEXIT the left leave the EU campaign.
Without doubt there is a growing revolt in EU member states against the EU dictatorship. The 59% to 41% defeat for the Italian government in the recent referendum was a major setback for the EU technocrats in 2016. I am sure that there will be many more in 2017.
The other big major change in the world was of course Donald Trumps election as President of the United States of America. I myself was not at all surprised by Trumps victory in fact I predicted it to other sceptical people early in 2016. Clinton was seen as a corrupt war monger by many people.
Trump has stated that he wants good relations with Russia, this change is very much to be welcomed. Although Trumps attitude to China an Iran seem more worrying. On the whole it seems as if Trump will adopt a less military inteventionist approach. If he does adopt this approach this will again be very welcome.
On a perhaps positive side it looks like that the Syrian civil war may be nearing its end. Particularly now that Russia and Turkey have agreed to work for peace in Syria again a very welcome event. Perhaps President Assad can now hold peace talks with the non violent elements of the opposition now that the jihadists who were foolishly supported by some western countries have been almost been defeated.
So in conclusion there are perhaps some grounds for hope at the end of 2016?
In my next blog to be published on 1/1/2017 I will look at what may happen in 2017.
Best wishes to all.
This Christmas I feel has an interesting spirit and energy connected to it. At the Christmas events that I have attended there is a sense of I am going to enjoy and let my hair down whatever the consequences. This is a very different atmosphere from previous Xmas years when there has been a feeling of controlled celebrations.
We are living in tense and trying times. A world controlled by a war mongering corporate elite. However this festive season as I have already stated there is a sense that we are going to enjoy ourselves come what may.
The world is in a sense of transition with new leaders taking over. Donald Trump in the USA and Francois Fillon almost certainly the next president of France being the obvious examples. Both leaders have stated that they want better relations with Russia so lets hope they choose the path of peace.
One thing that life and my spiritual mentor Eckhart Tolle has taught me is to concentrate on the present moment and not the past or the future.
In the future we should of course fight for a better world. But for period between now and the new year take in the magic of Christmas and have some fun. Enjoy yourself in a spiritual and fun loving way.
Enjoy Christmas and god bless you all.
In this latest somewhat controversial blog. I will put forward the view that nowadays you cannot just apply the label of fascist to far right groups. But instead the term fascist is much more complex nowadays. The term must also be applied to corporate and globalist fascists who want to make individual countries national sovereignty irrelevant. The countries instead would be dictated to by undemocratic transnational fascist institutions like the European Union.
It is quite right to still call some far right groups like the British National Front fascist. This group wants to expel from Britain non white people who were born in Britain. This groups political views are outrageous. However it is ridiculous to state that right wing nationalist populist groups like UKIP Britain and Alternative for Germany are fascist.
However we now move onto the controversial part of this blog. The term fascist must nowadays be applied to corporate and globalist fascists who are outwardly members of democratic political party,s.
For instance corporate fascists support TTIP and want to have mega multinational corporations have supreme power of sovereign national governments. Also globalist fascists want to make individual countries national parliaments irrelevant. These countries instead would be dictated to by groups like the EU commission.
Examples of globalist fascists are Jeroen Disselbloem the EU finance minsister who astonishingly is a member of the Netherlands Labour Party. He seems to want to make the EU countries national parliaments irrelevant. He also supports compulsory privatization. Martin Schulz the German SPD chair of the EU parliament is another example of a globalist fascist along with Donald Tusk.
Claude Juncker and Angela Merkel from the EU Christian Democratic movement must be considered corporate fascists. They seem to want to make countries national sovereignty irrelevant.
It is perhaps not surprising that many people in EU countries are turning to right wing nationalist populist party,s. As many left wing political party,s are spineless and support neo liberalism, privatization and the EU dictatorship. However as I have stated in my recent blogs we need to build a socialist, left anti globalist, EU movement to fight the corporate and globalist fascists and their fake left allies.
In conclusion best wishes to all for the future and god bless you.
