Israeli Jews should learn morality from Ukraine

After one terrorist attack in Israel, the ultra-right, religious-extremist government of Benjamin Netanyahu is set to impose atrocities on the families of the terrorists. Is it ethical? Absolutely not. Will it yield a good social result? Though Netanyahu might reap some crude political gain, Israel as a whole can only lose.

Long-range support

Up till now NATO has provided short-range and short-term support to Ukraine. With today's extensive and intended rocket attacks on civilian centers throughout Ukraine, Putin has escalated the war, taking his invasion of Ukraine to a new level of barbarism. And, yes, Putin's action was totally immoral and completely contrary to international law (such as it is) and the Geneva Conventions (signed after World War II). By openly boasting about these attacks on Ukraine, Putin only confesses his guilt to heinous war crimes.

So now the time has come for NATO to step up with much more comprehensive support for Ukraine. Ukraine (and Sweden and Finland) should be admitted immediately into NATO, and longer range military support must be provided to Ukraine so that precision attacks may be made upon key infrastructural support targets deep within Russia. To be clear, I am not endorsing the dropping of rockets on the Kremlin (or sending rockets into the center of Moscow at rush hour, as Putin did today in respect to Kyiv and other major cities in Ukraine). That would be countering war crimes with more war crimes. But Ukraine is fully justified in attacking secondary military targets (supply lines and Russian military installations) used to bolster the Russian aggression. Indeed, Ukraine was already justified in doing so. On top of all this, efforts should be made by NATO to bring Vladimir Putin, the current and long-time President of Russia, to justice.

Britain trussed for baking

Why does it seem that the Brits never manage to make up their minds about anything these days? Even Elizabeth can't work up any enthusiasm for installing the new PM.😀

Healthy laws

For over 40 years I have been asserting that laws are essentially a codification of property rights. I have also pointed out that PROUT's first fundamental principle effectively states that laws must coincide with the will of society.

There should be no accumulation of wealth without the permission of society.

Though the United States Congress has finally begun to accept that the right of private individuals to own and carry guns is not sacrosanct, the highest court of the land, the United States Supreme Court, has just overturned 50 years of legal precedent and women's rights (Roe v. Wade). In doing so, that corrupt court went against the well-known will of society, a will espoused by not just the vast majority of North American citizens but also by the vast majority of world citizens. This dogmatic ruling is absolutely appalling. It simply cannot stand.

The height of conceit

Imagine what Elon Musk could have done with $44 billion. He could have put an end to world hunger seven times... at least for a while! And, by the way, giving money to the UN World Food Program is something Musk pledged to do, although there is still no confirmation of any actual donation. Instead, Musk is now purchasing Twitter! Clearly, making money is not a proof of intelligence, much less humanity.
