I was in my first job and still remember vividly police chasing students from my office at the top of Adderley St near the Cathedral in St Georges St – the first stirrings of my “political conscience”. Think I wrote about it in my very first manuscript, How a South African “Moegoe” * became “politically aware”

I think the students were protesting the death (“suicide”) of Ahmed Timol at John Vorster Square in 1971

Knowledge makes us human

After three consecutive nights ofIsraelisecurity forcesraidingtheAl Aqsa Mosqueto stop Palestinians from accessing the Old City during prayers of the holy month of Ramadan. In retaliation, the Hamas group has launched more than 1,000 rockets on 10 May into Israel which resulted in thousands of casualties.

The conflict between Israel and Palestine has raged on for generations and the fighting we see in 2021 is born of more than 100 years of struggle. It is often referred to as theworld’s most intractable conflictis rooted in a dispute over land claimed by Jews as their biblical birthright and by the Palestinians, who seek self-determination. Despite repeated attempts to end the conflict between the two countries, there is no peace settlement in sight. As it is a very controversial issue I would say, the facts I will be providing here are based on historical facts…

Knowledge makes us human

“Wherever possible we need to cooperate, wherever possible we need to compete”

by Simon and Schuster In her new book “This Brave New World: India, China, and the United States”

China’s location is very strategic it is the largest, faster-growing economy in the world. In this global world, every nation is connected and affect one another in political, economic, social, and environmental spheres.

China got the Indian help in acquiring the position of being a permanent member of the United Nations. Now blocking India’s every step. (be it UN reforms, or notifying Azar a global terrorist, India’s membership to NSG) It has border disputes, water disputes, trade disputes, issues related to Dalai Lama, Tibetan issues, Pakistan issues, and many more. It is also the 7th largest export destination for India, and India is its 24th largest exporter. (with the export of diamond, copper, iron ore, organic chemicals, and cotton yarn)

Thanks for another follow… and/or like(s)

I just realised my days are determined and lead down paths from the feedback by my readers and followers around the world, like you. So thanks for the input.

All your comments and feedback encourage (greatly), uplift and even inspire me to follow “this road less travelled”.

I love my days “interacting with you’ guys and gals’ (and anything else in these PC * days-very)”

“early-bird (very) sleepy-head and not fully awoke” craig

* and definitely NOT a police constable)


“Driven to uplift, encourage and (perhaps even) inspire”


…”of chaos” (in the “real world”, so says “the nurse”)


Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials ¦and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.

Don’t worry about the world ending today…

Covid 19: Thoughts and Memories (for future generations)

The untold story of the people affected by Covid-19 and the conspiracies that lurk in the minds of those seeking answers.



See the video on http://www.vimeo.com

You should watch the “doco” by Stephen Presley first before you post on the www, c

… but that’s against my nature… and I’m NOT into conspiracy theories, Mark of the Beast, “devil”, etc. But I do love hearing the untold stories of people and especially those of hope

… and I post to remind myself (through imprinting the subconscious mind) to watch the “doco” fully WHEN I “get a mo”

and then think about it + make up my own mind

see https://bravejournalists.wordpress.com/ +


enjoy anyway and follow your own truths and beliefs

Research, trust, but verify
