We can defeat hate

Most news items indicate that hate is winning. People target those with slight differences like skin colour, religion, ethnicity. In my country, Australia, the government tortures people because they tried to seek asylum here via a leaky boat rather than through a nonexistent official procedure.

Thanks to its government’s initial humane generosity, Germany is overfilled with refugees, and this has led to a resurgence of neo-Nazism.

But there is hope, and more than that: success. Please read this inspiring report by Musa Okwonga about the way protesters for tolerance have forced a far-right group to give up.

The author is himself black, with a Muslim name, and yet he is accepted as a Berliner. So he should be.

I am a professional grandfather. My main motivation is to transform society to create a sustainable world in which my grandchildren and their grandchildren in perpetuity can have a life, and a life worth living. This means reversing environmental idiocy that's now threatening us with extinction, and replacing culture of greed and conflict with one of compassion and cooperation.
