The year 2015 has started yesterday. And on yesterday, I have tried to say something that might have made some sense to those who are dedicated readers of this website but regrettably I failed. Today, the second day of the New Year, I am still attempting to find better words than the usual words, " I wish you a Happy New Year " and still feel such words cannot possibly express what I really feel deep inside my whole being as a human being. Reasons:
( 1 ) Trends in big powers politics seem to be going into the wrong directions, at different places in the globe: Ukraine, Syria , Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Bahrain, Afghanistan and lastly but not least the Palestine-Israel conflict that has been going on for almost 50 years, with no hopeful resolution in sight.
( 2 ) The United Nations Organization has been founded immediately after World War Two, ( WW II ) to maintain peace in the world. The content of the Charter of the United Nations is a master piece of an internationally respected document, but the whole United Nations' functions have been used and abused by certain big powers to serve their own selfish interest, instead of the interest of peace among the people of the world.
( 3 ) A deadly disease called Ebola is spreading and has already killed more than 3,000 human beings. In order to find a medical cure for this dangerous disease, a huge amount of financial resources is badly needed to defeat such a deadly killer, but the big powers in the world seem to be committed for their geopolitical competitions for hegemony of specific countries which either have strategic locations or natural resources the big powers want to exploit and control its productions and distributions. Meanwhile, the deadly disease continues to spread and flourishes. Add to such a human foolishness, the millions above millions of poverty enduring human beings who live on less than two dollars a day and you will get the idea of what this writer is trying to convey to the readers of this website.
There are more reasons to list, but the above three reasons are the main ones and suffice to explain the difficulties encountered in just wishing you " A Happy New Year."
Under such miserable human conditions, " Happy New Year " has become meaningless and will not do you any good, let alone doing any good for the rest of the human race.
