"“So today, I state clearly and with conviction America’s commitment to seek the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons."'
i'll second that most worthy goal! good to hear that representatives speaking for the marshall islands are standing up and speaking out to the mighty, western imperial forces. i do believe, robert, that the overwhelming majority of earth's citizens would rest easier knowing that all nations agree to rid our planet of any nuclear weapons. so then, on whose authoirity do the governments of the united states, canada, france, england, israel and australia continue this madness? why do we_the_people allow the .001% greediest and most irresponsible people on earth to set policies we almost sane ones abhor? we in the united states are painfully aware that big-moneyed corporations exert too much power over our legislative, executive and judicial branches of government. sociopaths, people obsessed only with amassing power and wealth, are incapable of assessing future damage or making wise decisions. their only goal in life is more, ever more. in fact many of them, i'm sure, exhibit multiple obsessive behavioral problems such as alcoholism, gambling fever and such. step one in breaking their power hold is simply to cease flattering them by calling these losers "our leaders." do we really look up to them? do we truly wish to follow in their footsteps?
if the peoples of this tiny, beleaguered island nation can speak truth to the mighty empire, should we do any less? we cannot expect corporate sponsored media to hear our voice, but when we show the persistence of #black lives matter, at some point they cannot ignore us! they will, however, attempt to bring us under the umbrella of the most effective evil political party~co opt our movement for votes, but remember that a true self-governing democracy, a government of, by and for the people needs qualified spokespersons, not leaders!
