Divisive politics

So with all the divisive politics being spread within the so called democratic world, as a concerned citizen and parent I thought I’d share a quote from Albert Einstein

“I am by heritage a Jew, by citizenship a Swiss, and by makeup a human being, and only a human being, without any special attachment to any state or national entity whatsoever.”

He wrote this in a letter post world war 1 when you would have thought patriotism and maybe hate would be running through his veins. But no.

I’m not saying you shouldn’t be proud of where you’re from but unfortunately governments use nationalism all the time to keep the people of the world divided. It keeps populations distracted away from the real issue especially in times of economic hardship and war.

No matter colour, creed or religion we all require the same basic resources of shelter, food and water which allows us to live. A UN study stated that 86% of the world’s resources are consumed by the world’s wealthiest 20%. This stat leads to the conclusion that you must have sufficient money to be able to live a dignified life. This is what leads to huge movements of people to countries that have access to money and therefore resources.

Therefore who controls world resources ultimately controls people and wealth. A study done by James Glattfelder a physicist working at the department of Banking and Finance at the University of Zurich points to who has this control

Its the global privatisation of resource and money supply that really needs looking at. Peace
