(& How Governments are hollowing out Constitutions.)
What is the Magna Carta? Basicly it is a 800 year old drafted form of a constitution, that prevents governments from taking authoritarian or autocratic rule over their constituents. It gives the ruling high courts the right to revoke or decline decisions made by governments or their houses of parliament. It served a real purpose for hundreds of years and has been updated as time went along.
At present several Governments including the Us and UK governments, are bypassing the high-courts more & more often under the pretext of terrorist threats as if their countries are in perpetual war with the World.
We have seen it after 9/11 when the so called ,‘Patriot Act‘, threatened to undermine even further the remaining civil liberties in the United States. And we are witnessing it in 2015 when after the Paris Charlie Hebdo incident, many secret government agencies like MI5 the Dutch AIVD and the French Surté, were all asking for more funds and powers.
Simultaneously we are witnessing the right to legal representation for the average citizen becoming harder and harder to find in all so called Western Countries. This is Democracy being taking over by criminal corporate interests, as is forced upon us by treaties such as the TTP, TAFTA ,TTIP and whatever you want to call these contracts superseding governments and civil-liberties & Human-rights.
Is this what our ancestors have been fighting for?
So pretty soon we all will be interconnected through gadgets with our appliances at home or in the car, whilst eating polluted food, getting sick and than paying through the nose for medications that do not actually help either. That is how greedy corporations go; Create the problem – Sell the solution. It is not civilized. It can even be called dehumanizing. Down right dirty games by the filthy rich. If the majority does not rise up to stop this onslaught because of it’s gradual inset, mankind is surely doomed. We need to educate each other on these matters, in order to find some future balance with ourselves and our surroundings.
Failing to do so will result in a more chaotic World wherein fake fear will be replaced by real fear and real hysteria. The filthy rich withdrawing behind closed fences while the world goes up in flames. Whoopdidoo. Try explaining that to your children. They will surely become even more fatalistic than you! Where is human intelligence in all of this? So much news-media so little sound information? So little proper education? To continue on the present road will lead to the collapse of our societies, and this collapse will affect all people everywhere rich and poor. Please show some intellect and avoid this from becoming a true prediction. TrinityRoy2015
