Moravian comments on Mar 12, 2019:
The early Christians were persecuted not for worshiping their god but for refusing to worship the official Roman gods. When Christianity became the official religion they returned the favour, tenfold. For a brilliant summary of those times read "The darkening age (the christian destruction of the classical world)" by Catherine Nixey. Shows "the religion of love and tolerance" in a new light.

This has been going on long before 9/11 and is one reason why the USA is hated in many countries. Bush's war on terrrr as he called it is just a continuation of US foreign policy.

Moravian comments on Mar 12, 2019:
I was a member of something like this years ago. You offer work in your area of expertise and are credited with the hours or days worked then if you wanted a job done you could use the hours you collected. No money changed hands, I did things like gardening and tree surgery and mostly received baby sitting in return. It worked well.

Moravian comments on Mar 11, 2019:
This is a guy who married a six year old girl but to give him credit he did not have sex with her until she was nine. In this day and age he would be serving a long stretch at HMP. I have a habit of watching the BBC's "Big Question" on sunday mornings although it does nothing for my elevated blood pressure. Yesterday the question was "Is islam united or divided". All the usual (Muslim) suspects were hauled out including that obnoxious English convert Yvonne Riddley. They genuinely scared me apart from the English Sufi who was pacifist and seems to spend most of his life meditating. A Welsh scholar of Islam proclaimed that every word of the Koran is open to multiple interpretation and another stated that it was the pure and perfect word of god. Now they can't both be right or was god just playing tricks ?

I'm sure it wasn't my first but I still remember it well. I was living in a flat in London. A Friday evening I think and the BBC cancelled TV programmes and played mournful music all evening.

We have some in Scotland too and they include the English in their list of people to hate.

Moravian comments on Mar 6, 2019:
There is an amusing piece in The Times today about autosexuality. or the love of ones self. An obvious candidate for this affliction is Donald Trump. The columnist relates a tale about Trump instructing his ex buddy Cohen to sell a painting of Trump at an auction house and to make sure that it fetched the highest price. Cohen paid two people to bid on the painting and it sold for $60000. This sum was paid anonymously by Trump and he then gloated about how much his painting was worth.

One of the most stable countries in Africa is Botswana. Why ? Because the population is predominantly from one tribe, The Tswana. Most other countries have competing tribes, which causes conflict. The ultimate conflict being the genocide in Rwanda. If the dividing up of the continent by European colonists had not happened and countries had evolved on tribal boundaries it may be a more peaceful place.

Moravian comments on Mar 1, 2019:
It;s not just the USA. The new buzz word is "populism". Which looks more like right wing nationalism to me. Brazil and Hungary have elected right wing presidents and in the UK we have Brexit and many countries have similar types in the wings ready to take over. I'm sure the reasons are complex but we have had an era of unprecedented growth and prosperity which is now threatened by climate change,overpopulation,inequality of wealth etc etc. It's easy to blame others different from ourselves for our problems.
