This week saw the hosting of the G20 Summit in Hamburg. Angela Merkel felt the need to school Donald Trump in democracy which is a bit rich coming from her since Merkel’s government has seen widespread shutting down of any debate or demonstrations by Pediga last year and earlier this year. Pediga were rightfully demonstrating against the islamification of Europe which was a decision taken by the EU elite without democratic consultation of the people of Europe. Neither Italy, Greece, Germany, France nor Spain were asked whether they wanted to accept the majority of Middle East countries coming into Europe en masse. Any discussion of the subject was and continues to be swiftly shut down. That’s not democracy that’s dictatorship.
The main press flew in a flurry of who sat next to whom, who spoke to whom, deciphering body language like a gaggle of school girls discussing the newest boy band or latest fashion items. However the real and big news was that meeting with Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. The Donald has long admired President Putin and his ability to maneouvre away from the constant bickering, prodding, cage rattling that dominated the Obama years and steered Russia into becoming a more modern country able to take leading parts in international agreements for trade and commerce as well as political diplomacy. Not to mention setting up BRICS. In short Trump admires Putin’s ability to look at the bigger picture and it shows.
Since Trump’s election as US President there has been a hysterical outcry that the elite lost the election in the US, have sought to blame everyone but themselves for this loss and can be equated to an arrogance displayed in politics around the world. The cage rattling has amplified to stratospheric proportions hoping to unsettle Trump so the Democrats can get back to doing what they do best, being undemocratic.
That the meeting between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin was a success and they have agreed to stabilise and co-operate on several issues that have a real impact on the lives of so many people worldwide is the real success story of the G20. As leaders of the two biggest nations on this earth I think both men understand the importance of the effect their policies have on people worldwide and as long as Donald Trump remains in the White House this is a positive outcome for everyone concerned. Sabre rattling by the military branch of the US government does nothing positive for the world and only goes to emphasize just how dangerous, out of touch and unstable the US really is. In a few years I hope things will have died down considerably as those who are in governments around the world realise that ordinary people don’t care for being marshalled into ever more conflicts that have nothing to do with them nor anything to do with the governments either. The “need for control” by governments only exposes their own weaknesses.
