A world in crisis

Due to the Trump Administration's border separation policy, the USA has now forfeited any and all moral authority that it once might have had on the world stage. Thankfully, the USA has now withdrawn from the United Nations Human Rights Council. Even in respect to that thoroughly corrupt and hypocritical body, having nothing but a name to its credit, the USA does not merit a seat. And so two questions cannot be escaped today. Does the world as a whole have a moral compass? And what will become of us if there be no one in political power who is truly worthy of respect?

At a loss

It is rare that I am at a loss for words, but words do not adequately express my indignation. How repugnant is it to separate children from their parents when a family is only seeking refuge! How much harm is done to those innocent children! How much pain is inflicted upon those well-meaning parents! How much does the heart of a nation lose as a result of such an entitled and cruel attitude!

Oh so predictable

Everyone knew in advance what Trump was going to say about the summit in Singapore. Actually, there is only one thing he ever says... a never-ending, unsubstantiated assertion of his own greatness... in other words, an unending lie. And most also knew in advance what was likely to happen in Singapore. True to form, Trump merely pandered to a brutal dictator.
