Top 2020 Resolution For Poets And Humanity.

New Year’s Resolution for 2020

magine it were possible to carry out a worldwide referendum allowing every human being to weigh in on the question: “Should mankind finally put an end to wars and establish, – starting in 2020, for the 1st time in the history of life on planet Earth – true and long-lasting universal peace?”

Most would likely envision the answer to such a potential voting process to be an overwhelming and unmistakable “Yes!”, with the percentage of world citizens voting in the affirmative approaching 99.99%, excluding the infamous .01% who rely on mass-murderous wars of aggression to maintain their wealth, power and accompanying ultra-privileged lifestyles.

Perhaps the most beneficial #1 New Year’s Resolution for 2020 embraced by humanity relates to manifesting into Earthly reality, for the health, happiness and well-being of this and future generations, that same imaginary referendum-decided goal: Establishing World Peace.

Men and women poets have expressed such ideal sentiments across time.

“The Persistence of Memory” by Salvador Dali – 1931

“The poet, described in ideal perfection, brings the whole soul of a man into activity, with the subordination of its faculties to each other, according to their relative worth and dignity. He diffuses a tone and spirit of unity, that blends, and (as it were) fuses, each into each, by that synthetic and magical power, to which we have exclusively appropriated the name of imagination.

“This power, first put in action by the will and understanding, and retained under their irremissive, though gentle and unnoticed, control (laxis effertur habenis – Meaning: Carried onward with loose reins; driven with loosened reins) reveals itself in the balance or reconciliation of opposite or discordant qualities; of sameness, with difference; of the general, with the concrete; the idea, with the image; the individual, with the representative; the sense of novelty and freshness, with old and familiar objects; a more than usual state of emotion, with more than usual order; judgment ever awake and steady self-possession, with enthusiasm and feeling profound or vehement; and while it blends and harmonizes the natural and the artificial, still subordinates art to nature; the manner to the matter, and our admiration for the poet to our sympathy with the poetry.”

From: The Rime of the Ancient Mariner (1798)

He prayeth well, who loveth well

    Both man and bird and beast.

He prayeth best who loveth best

    All things both great and small;

For the dear God who loveth us,

    He made and loveth all.

Quote: “Whenever philosophy has taken into its plan religion, it has ended in skepticism; and whenever religion excludes philosophy, or the spirit or free inquiry, it leads to willful blindness and superstition.”

SAMUEL TAYLOR COLERIDGE (1772-1834) British poet, critic, philosopher

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Best wishes for the year 2020 and the new decade of Earth’s history – to man and bird and beast and all things great and small.

Vote Corbyn for Peace.

“Once judged as the finest, most cost efficient health service in the world, the NHS is now in mortal danger – due to ruthless government privatisation plans. Are the British people fully aware of this? Or have they been sidetracked by the propaganda of so-called austerity. A group of doctors and health care professionals are dedicated to getting the truth out. Please support this film.” — John Pilger

THE GREAT NHS HEIST is an independent production designed to expose the covert destruction of the English National Health Service. Post-war Atlee’s government implemented Aneurin Bevan’s ambition of an NHS in July 1948. It meant everyone in Britain could get free medical care and this successful revolutionary social advance was copied across the world.

From the beginning there was strong political opposition and from the British Medical Association. Throughout Margaret Thatcher’s premiership, forces determined to replace the NHS with an American style…

Two Big Days In The History Of Syria.

By Jerry Alatalo

“Humanitarian Situation in Syria”, United Nations on October 24, 2019 | Two days later on October 26, 2019 – ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was dead.

n Thursday October 24, 2019 a meeting was convened at the United Nations to present findings of a study conducted through interviews of hundreds of Syrians about their experiences inside Internally Displaced Citizens (IDC) refugee camps, particularly those located at Rukban and Al-Tanf.

In a briefing titled “Humanitarian Situation in Syria” presented by the Director of the Foundation for the Study of Democracy, Mr. Maxim Grigoriev describes why the refugee camps are misnamed, and that they are in reality brutal prison camps where tremendous levels of terrorist-led gruesome human rights violations have occurred.

Murder, forced detention, abuse, torture, forced prostitution, rape and sexual harassment are some of the crimes reported from witnesses in interviews conducted with (2) days of the witness/Syrian citizens’ leaving the refugee camps and relocating to Syrian government controlled areas.

The American military in charge of the refugee camps in high likelihood do not wish for this information to reach a wider public, as the personal witness testimonies paint a severely critical picture of the United States military’s collaborative, commandeering role with terrorists in the camps, including members of ISIS.

As already noted, the meeting was held at the United Nations in New York on Thursday October 24, 2019. It is important to note that the participants in this meeting were totally unaware of what was to occur within just 48 hours afterward.

Every man and woman who reads these words will by now be fully familiar with the Saturday October 26, 2019 reported death of ISIS founder and leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, which was immediately the top focus of/on virtually every media platform on Earth.

We would ask those who pass this way to view the entire 57-minute meeting video and consider possible answers and/or commentary on the following question:

Was the Saturday October 26, 2019 raid on an Idlib, Syria compound, – reportedly conducted for either capturing or killing ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi – carried out specifically in response to the extremely shocking and revealing October 24, 2019 United Nations meeting?

Perhaps it would be helpful in answering that important question to consider the level of response, or non-response/silence, coming from the administration of United States President Donald Trump regarding the October 24, 2019 meeting at the United Nations.

What are people across the Earth to make of two separate, hugely important, related and starkly contrasting events – central to the future of Syria and its people, along with the Middle East region and the world – taking place just a matter of two days apart?

Syria’s Bashar Jaafari At United Nations: “Take Your Terrorists Back.”

At the August 29, 2019 meeting of the United Nations Security Council, Syria’s Dr. Bashar Jaafari suggested a possible end to the long war which has devastated his country, and told state-sponsors of terrorism against the Syrian people to “Take your terrorists back”.

he United Nations Security Council meeting of August 29, 2019 focused on the situation in Syria, and concluded with a very strong statement by Syria’s U.N. representative Dr. Bashar Jaafari.

Among the powerful points made by Dr. Jaafari, he talked about what it would take to end the warring in his nation of Syria, basically telling the state-sponsors of terrorism focused on for all intents and purposes destroying his nation, – in the long tragedy persisting over 8 years of horrific fighting, death, injury, displacement and destruction – to “Take your terrorists back”.

Dr. Jaafari also touched on the “illegal according to international law and the United Nations Charter” creation of a “safezone” on Syrian territory by the United States under Donald Trump and Turkey under Erdogan.

This web platform has published 102 pieces on the Syrian conflict, making this #103, and therefore we will be very concise here as anyone interested can find the previous Syria posts here in the site “archives”.

We would only briefly conclude by observing and admiring the tremendous level of determination and personal courage displayed by Syria’s Dr. Bashar Jaafari, especially when taking into consideration the Syrian people having to endure an unbelievably brutal foreign mercenary terrorist assault – for now going on over 8 bloody and heartbreaking years.

Please consider taking bold action, and help share Dr. Bashar Jaafari’s powerful August 29, 2019 U.N. statement far and wide. The unnecessary, brutally tragic, criminal terrorist war on the Syrian people has gone on for far too long. It really needs to finally – and mercifully – come to an end.
