We may congratulate ourselves on our enlightened democracies but our freedoms and privileges are maintained by domination.
Huge armies and arsenals of weapons, including nuclear weapons, ensure that the West stays on top.
Anyone who threatens this supremacy is bombed or invaded.
We exploit weaker countries economically.
We impose our monoculture.
And we oppress minorities.
But all of this is hidden beneath a veneer of democratic liberalism which admits no fault.
We are like a psychopath who buries his crimes in his unconscious and presents a facade of goodness and light.
But as the Age of Aquarius dawns we will become more aware of our global responsibilities and many of these issues will have to be addressed.
It is my prayer that this awakening will take place without violence or war.
