Profiting from War

As a result of watching the document, Why We Fight, (see previous post) I became aware of  the Center for Public Integrity. Cool name, and interesting purpose.

They published a book entitled Making A Killing — The Business of War, and here is a link to the site, with some accompanying articles of interest.

To your prosperity,

Life and Debt — the Documentary

There is a fountain of information found at the local libraries.  Not everything need come from the internet, nor do we have to pay for every movie we want to watch.

Today, I found this gem-of-a-movie at the library — and got to watch it for free.  The documentary is called Life and Debt, and is based on the economic problems in Jamaica that started after the British left. It’s a fascinating movie, and I was saddened by the series of events and the situation the country is in.

It’s very well done, and the link I provided gives you tons of information about the movie, so I will not elaborate further.

To your prosperity,

Sue

Temptations for Leaders

There are probably going to be a few references in this blog to topics such as this one, where a leader succumbs to the temptations of monetary and material gifts in order to fulfill their own personal desires.  In this article which showed up today, it speaks to a highly-respected US senator who (allegedly) has accepted gifts such as renovations on his vacation home, vehicles, etc.

By learning of such scenarios, we gain a better understanding of the illusions we live with.  In our innocence, we see what we want to see, and that is…that ALL of our leaders are trustworthy, in their integrity, honest, and seek to do the best job they can in our best interest.  Not in THEIR own best interest.  Not for THEIR profit.  Not to meet a desire in them, but to meet the needs of all.

I hold the vision in my mind that some day, in my lifetime, I am shown the true leaders — the ones that work on behalf of the good of all.

To your prosperity,

Sue
