Pretend the Earth anthropormorphized and began speaking to humans. Itīs the first decade of the second millennia. The earth keeps different time. What would Earth like to say to this aragant species?

The State of the World. January 2009
Good bye and thanks for all the shoes. - Yes I succeeded - I once read in a fortune cookie: ""You are destined to make lots of trouble, Naively"; - I passed the torch to the next super power, and maybe I helped usher in the post human era.
AIDS victims
Now deceased


Last year the UN estimated there are now 200 million slaves in the world.
To put this into perspective, during the four centuries slaves were trafficked from Africa to the colonies, best estimates put the number of victims at 12 million
.
If money was spent last year to stop this and save the victims, it is unrecorded
.

Last year 4 thousand people were killed in acts of terror, and we spent 370 billion dollars pursuing the presumed perpetrators.
Last year 15 million starved to death, children mostly. We spent 8 billion trying to save them. While 800 million are still undernourished..
Last year 4 million died of AIDS leaving 6 million orphaned children behind. The UN asked for 10 billion dollars to fight it.We offered 4 billion, and have not yet paid up. The clock ticks for 40 million yet living with the AIDS virus.

in Ethiopia, 800 million more wait at death's door.

child forced prostitution
Chid Prostitute, they exist everywhere, but 70% come from poor countries.
Last year 10 million children were forced into prostitution (UNICEF estimate). If money was budgeted to save them, there is no record of it.
Last year 4.2 million died from TB, while we spent 645 million to combat it. WHO estimates 2 billion (1/3 world population) have the disease.

I have included here some of the sad realities of life in our global community today. As for causes. they are numerous: from overpopulation, trade inequities, corruption, intolerant ideologies, religious rivalries, greed, ambition, incompassion, unwillingness of proud democracies to submit to the international democracy: the United Nations.
.The tally:
Terror victims, 4,000, Funds dedicated to save them, $370 Billion
Victims of Pandemics & Mass Crimes (AIDS, Malaria, Tb, Slaves, Trafficed women & child prostitutes, Democide, homeless kids) - Victims, 347 million. .Funds dedicated to save them - $12 Billion

Tricked, trafficked & forced into prostitution
emocide Victims of Democide


Last year 3.5 million people died of Malaria. 85 million was spent on research to prevent it, 400 million catch it each year, it is the disease that kills the most
African children........

Last year, the United Nations estimates, 4 million women were forced (through lies and coercion) to become slave prostitutes. There is no estimate of the amount of money and resources we spent to find and free these victims, but everyone accepts it was very little
Last year approximately 1 million people died by democide (state terror, Government executions, genocide, mass murder). Much of it was predictable, but almost nothing and no money was invested to prevent it.

street children Last year there were over 100 million homeless children on the Earth. Next year there will be more. Governments are not doing much to help them. NGOs are doing what they can, but they are too few with too few resources. If we care enough to help them we must demand that our elected governments put doing so on their egenda. And then act.
