Reasons we think the world is getting better
Who wants to hear about the fact that every day some 200,000 people around the world are lifted above the $2-a-day poverty line?
The news is clear, for we must cheer. We must wave hands and banners high as for today some people got a bit more. Just a little bit more and we show applause. Our now partaking, clear unthinking, feeling nothing for what we can’t see. We can’t know or understand the reasons why we try to gain the more that elevates and makes a state to furnish with statistics.
Tea and biscuits sipped in places where the cake is just as nice at a price. All a lot of fuss and bother when the gloating stand with pointed fingers. “Pontifa-noting “ on what the other thinks on. On what others ponder on about and over what we are about when we are without and less the fortunate for. Therefore the more we want we need to show that we have got.
The “we “ can well and truly be the counted with a jam jar full of pocket coins. Percentage noted, quoted gloated and scoffed at through spittle splatting laughter.
Or did you know, that more than 300,000 people a day get access to electricity and clean water for the first time every day?
Well, the lights come on and brightness is shon and we were given the chance to work on longer making it more likely, that we will with more likelihood reach over the $2 a day income limit.
So number one on our list of crowing achievements is also number two and in the truth of logic no aim achieved. Though achieve we have for praise a knowledge. Now we see in darkness more to do and to pursue. For now we need to fill our empty corners
with warmth and sentiments that represent the progress we now feel. Electricity brings fridges , brings TV’s, bring computers, brings utensils, tools and gadgets. Sleeping disorders and a dimension of desires beamed and streamed and waved on air.
Flashes of inspirations sparking growths and personal revolutions and volts of quantity called development. Illuminated secrets of clubs and gangs of like the minded. The darkness is dispelled and nature looses a buckle. We stand with pants around our ankles only now all can see the nakedness of an emperor without his cloths.
If we care about global welfare. Globalisation is the only way forward to ensure that economic prosperity is shared among all countries and not only a select few advanced economies.
If we care about global welfare then we must be aware of the global warfare that’s taking place in our homes and minds and the divisions of soul and heart and spirit and body. There are knowns that the unknowns cherish and relish the day that humanity perish and wait in coil rattles posture. The bolstering rise of commerces cold fingers in purses and sales for profits and gains for powers and fortunes the citizen drone like good little sheep. The bleating is when there are traffic jams and power cuts. As global impressions leave high streets and malls in a limbo with nobody there to consume from the windows when pockets are empty and there are no coins to feed supper to toddlers with distended bellies and eyes all a bulging from watching the telly. Big mother the baby sitters companion has stolen the children and nobody sees that the fall of a nation is well underway and the day of a reasoning surely is coming and thunder is rolling in heaven.
