GLASS HOUSES AND STONE THROWERS

There ARE no perfect societies.

There is not one nation on Earth that is perfect in every way.

There never will be. We are all imperfect humans & the societies we live within reflect our imperfections.

Not one of us can cast the first stone.

Most nations mostly keep themselves to themselves acknowledging there are problems on all sides.

Most nations work to improve the lot of their people by whatever means they can.

They are usually too busy with this to bother others very much.

Nations have gripes with one another, especially if they share a border. But 999 times out of 1000 they come to some compromise through diplomacy that smooths relations.

An ongoing grudge & bad blood between them is rare.

Most nations get along.

There are a number of cases where nations cannot seem to mend fences by reaching an agreement & this results in an ongoing feud with attendant insults.

The situation between India & Pakistan over Kashmir is one such running sore.

The UN assists in resolving areas of conflict. Currently 14 peacekeeping missions exist.

The job of the UN is hard. In a time of rising nationalism & shrinking resources the world needs all the help it can get.

Unfortunately one nation is creating conflicts & fractured states faster than the UN can fix them.

That nation is the USA.

The USA is arguably the most troubled nation on the planet.

You name it & the USA has trouble with it.

Drug addiction (Opoid Crisis), Violent crime, White nationalism, Financial fraud, Racism, Gun crime, Sexual abuse & a polarized population.

With all its problems & no solutions in sight the USA keeps lecturing other nations on what they should do & shouldn’t do, who they can ally with & who they can’t.

And the USA backs all this lecturing up with threats, sanctions & illegal wars.

The USA. #1 candidate:

'People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.'

The inability to recognize the consequences of its actions may mean this saying will ALWAYS fly over the heads of all US elites... just as their missiles fly out.
