How best to illustrate inequality and failure to find means to comfort the less fortunate. Western world often use austerity measures to cut costs of healthcare and timely care for mental illness. Modern society and especially the Corona pandemic illustrates how poorly prepared governments are and their focus is on more economic growth at whatever cost for the great majority.
Moving from one crisis to the next, having difficulty to unite a country which extends on the international level to set common goals. Sustainability and transition to Green Energy is a stop gap policy when there is no other option. Decision making comes too late and does not take into account a long term vision. Perhaps democracy fails to meet the challenges of today.

The "intelligent' Dutch citizens not following advise given by political leader Mark Rutte ... the leader of a one year old caretaker government had followed a zig-zag policy of herd immunity ... easing most restrictions too early ... more concerned about political consequences than health issues of the tens of thousands stricken by the SARS CoV-2 illness. The death rate is increasing as Mark Rutte refuses to take responsibility sometimes hiding behind science, afterwards the virologists resign because Rutte doesn't follow advise of the broad WOT Group (British SAGE equivalent).
The very high trust in his policy has collapsed as the Dutch are facing their fourth or fifth spike in infections ... taking decisions late as the numbers rise exponentially.
Furthermore, there is very poor adherence to the mitigation rules required to lower the R number which has been above 1.2 for many consecutive weeks. Dumb, dumber, dumbest ... Trump, Johnson and Rutte in a dead heat. His RIVM leading scientist should have been given the pink slip over a year ago.

It takes courage in leadership which has been universally lacking during the SARS CoV-02 pandemic since end of 2019. The choice between survival or watching the slow, agonizing death of nations and its people across the globe.

I have voiced strong views about the choice of NATO to set a policy of division. Former US Ambassador Ivo Daalder to Brussels stated as such: make Russia a pariah state. The process followed a step-by-step procedure to boot Russia out of all channels of diplomacy and communication. Angering the Russian Bear, the expected and calculated push-back followed in response.
The so-called social revolutions in Ukraine and Georgia were prime examples of forcing regime change to get these nations into the sphere of NATO in opposition to Russia. The last NATO Summit in Bucharest under George Bush stated a clear goal to boot Russia out of NATO. What did not succeed in revolutions 2004 and 2008, succeeded in 2014 under Joe Biden and right-hand Cheney hold-out Victoria Nuland. Lots have been opinioned and written about that chapter. What followed was extensive lobbyists and utter propaganda to discipline media to write unfavorably about Russia.
This media chapter has all the hallmarks of Operation Mockingbird by US Intelligence during the hot Cold War.
Close-by on blogs and in Dutch media, there were ferocious attacks. A big effort was made to undermine relations of Old Europe with Russia. The exiled Russian billionaires living in London, Tel Aviv and New York play a role in funding NGOs and reporters.

The delegation, which likely included representatives from the Mossad spy agency, met with Abdul Rahim Hamdan Dagalo, a prominent general in the Rapid Support Forces, a Sudanese paramilitary force that took part in the coup carried out last month, the Walla news site reported Monday.
Dagalo had been part of a Sudanese military delegation that visited Israel several weeks earlier, meeting with members of the National Security Council and other officials in the Prime Minister's Office.

The unwise decision by Downing Street #10 on COVID-19 policy is biting all with double vaccinations in the a$$ ... offering the domestic brand of vaccine AstraZeneca with a delayed second AZ jab after 12 weeks has left the population vulnerable. The double vaccine jab offers as low as 33% protection to the Delta variant and the newer mutations. The call for early third booster shots is heard in Parliament.
Furthermore, the UK is far behind the EU states for total vaccinations per capita.

Economic sanctions are increasingly being used to promote the full range of American foreign policy objectives. Yet all too often sanctions turn out to be little more than expressions of U.S. preferences that
hurt expands American economic interests without changing the target's behaviour for the better.
Doesn't make a better world, it changes the behaviour of American allies more than the intended targets. Bullying through sanctions and NATO military pressure makes states line-up behind unipolar might of the USA. There will be a moment the imbalance causes a confrontation and war, for now it's manoeuvring to stay on top of the pyre of wealth.
