Less greed needed
Egalitarian England and the UK – a land of gradually decaying palaces, manor houses, grand estates, castles and cathedrals, once the evidence of Empire prostitution and raping of the far-flung colonies, now a costly drain on heritage trusts and funds somehow drained from taxes. The once employed factory workers, many now obsolete as a result of mechanisation, are now credit card serfs and slaves created by designed education and conditioned to honour money and living/existing to crave for wealth. The Establishment, still living in some fantasy dream, re-engineer conflicts with the sure knowledge that, if sucessful, arms sales will reap them billions of dollars. Clone-like Western nations are aping the UK, with the US outshining its aged parent. Less greed and a more even spread of resources would go a long way to removal of our terrorist fears and would see Isis evolve to become a nation that is accepted.
As always, spelling, punctuation and grammar are exactly as printed in the Waikato Times.
