He is wrong RW. Problem is not the fact that we have a two party system. The problem is that they are both controlled by the same people and make sure their own interests are served rather than the voters. A further problem is they are in control of the media which in a way is feeding the people the information to protect their views and are hiding facts that will hurt their interests.

Take Climate Change. Not a single country is taking the problem seriously, and consequently we may have already reached the point of no return. We are now facing up to 50 degrees temperatures.

Climate change is not produced by humans.. the earth’s axis is shifting.. that’s why the Siberian sea is melting.. this is why the west started the war in Ukraine.. the Russian plateau is becomes by fertile with a longer season.. the wests objective was accomplished with the embargo on Russia ..

Indeed, what is the demise of the Capitalist order according to Marx; when Labour can no longer be exploited efficiently and effectively toward "their" end.

...machines make machines; have 'we' arrived at that point where as the People, people will speak for themselves, since their "Leadership" at that point has resigned themselves to represent themselves alone?

Enosis dear W, open your mind. If it exists, this 'us' and "them", let's not get confused by "their" dogmas and how 'we' are defined; choosing "a side" does not get 'us' far.

(Climate Change exists.)

First of all even if it is indeed true that the earth's axis is shifting does not mean mankind is not contributing to climate change.

Secondly if it was the shift, all it will do is shift the hottest part of the earth north or south. There is no shift, what there is is increased heat and expansion of the area affected. The affect is being felt from the pole to the equator. Every year there is more ice melting and more extreme weather everywhere.

People will hang on to anything to deny the damage mankind is doing to the environment. Of course it is not the earth that they are killing, earth will continue and life will continue and evolve but mankind may be reduced to what it used to be, which was food for living animals rather than master of his environment and the top preditor.

I do fear for the workers in Cyprus who work in this heat and hope that their bosses are kinder to them in these times.

Well, just when you think after years of Conspiracy Theories you've heard them all.....................

So, will Trump being indicted and successfully prosecuted, courtesy of the Democrats, hand him the Presidency? What if he's the first US President to be sent to jail? How's that likely to work out? Fascinating!

Perhaps more importantly. If, wrt the Ukraine war, you're a Trump supporter, he would apparently end it in a day, as opposed to Biden, who's irreversibly committed to supporting Ukraine. Who to opt for? A conundrum. :D

Why do you say courtesy of the Democrats? You sound as one of Maga people. He broke the law and he should be given a fair trial and all that. Democrats have nothing to do with it. Why are they taking so long to investigate him and pull his ass into the courtroom.
