200710 – musings
placid and tame conventions are of little use in the arena of global politics. international giants gratitiously and wantonly subvert law & legislature to fulfill their objectives. little can be done to censure their actions – they pull the strings of the global puppet show. strident condemnations fall short; avarice, the abasement of human dignity, ardent protests fall on deaf ears. they refuse to listen, yet we continue to speak, our words futile, as we are borne ceaselessly against the current, destined for doom & despondency.
