Why can not humans be content with their own life, why should they interfer with the lives of others, especially when there has been no request to do so. This has been evident from the start of time, by wishing to have what is not theirs, the abuse of power, the need to seek adventure, the desire to control, to possess for should we not be content with what we have. Is it not better to give than take? But then is giving always right for there is giving and there is giving. When the Western World took on Christianity, did we not wish to give this to others, whether they wished to receive it or not. When we set forth to find and explore the New World, did we understand what we were doing or going to do. We went to explore, but in doing so did we not invade, decimate the native inhabitants and impose our will, culture and beliefs on them. Then where there was resistance we would kill, maim and suppress the will of the people and eventually enslave them and we called this progress, but for whom.

Racism in any form from any quarter should not be tolerated and it not just from one sector, but racism can be in many forms, from any race or religion and for many reasons. You have the out and out racists who will never conform for they truely believe that they are best and everyone else is not, while another large area are the ignorant, who because of lack of knowledge distrust anyone who is different and here this ignorance can be against not just race, but the powerless, the homeless, the disabled and in some respects the seriously ill. Coupled with racism, is power and sometimes envy, but not always for they can also be on a stand alone basis. So it is sometimes difficult to understand and reason with persons in the aforementions areas. With regards to Prince George is it envy or jealousy, for some yes or for others it may not be as it could be the assumed power and in some respects possible racism. Can any of the above really be defeated and the simple answer is no, but it can be mitigated by reasoned arguement, especially to those who are not of the out and out extreme. It goes without saying that the world would be a much better place if there were no racism or abuse of power, but that is extremely unlikely to occur as over Europe and America the extreme is in high ascendant.
