One of the most insightful answers I have found to the question, “What is Ubuntu?” is contained in a reflection by a South African, Barbara Nussbaum, after the carnage of September 11. Her poignant literary style enlivens the concept. “Ubuntu”, she says, “is the capacity in African culture to express compassion, reciprocity, dignity, harmony and humanity in the interests of building and maintaining community with justice and mutual caring.”
Ubuntu is not just an African philosophy but a spirituality and an ethic of African traditional life. In his work, No Future Without Forgiveness, Desmond Tutu, describes a person with Ubuntu as one with self-assurance who is open, available to others and affirms them.
Even though African society has been largely eroded of this primal value, the kernel of its philosophy remains a veritable motif for the forging of global peace platform. In history, the Ubuntu spirit, whatever name it has been given, is the one that has propelled the world towards oneness in the likes of Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Theresa of Calcutta, Oscar Romero, Desmond Tutu, Joseph Stiglitz and Nelson Mandela.
They all embodied the Ubuntu spirit in the different contexts that they lived. It is however not sufficient that the Ubuntu spirit has punctuated history; it needs to be the default consciousness of humanity if there is to be a global culture peace.
Peace is never achieved through peace treaties and agreements because there will always be loopholes to circumvent the treaties, but through a deliberate and consistent commitment to the common good in the spirit of Ubuntu.
The above is an excerpt from Ubuntu, an African culture of Human Solidarity.
We are all weary Deanne . The world seems to be a hostile alien place, full of different factions fighting for control, of us, of our beautiful planet.
Sometimes in the fight for our freedoms, we may forget our ultimate goal is to be united in peace, harmony, mutual respect and ultimately love.
UBUNTU is a philosophy that may have originated in Southern Africa but it transcends race, color or creed. UBUNTU is about us, about being both totally human and at the same time recognising the spark of divinity to be found in each and every one of us.
To look into the face of your neighbour , whoever they may be and see not only yourself in just another form but also the face of God in that person .
We spend so much time looking at the lives of others whom we may feel are more privileged in some way than we are; not realising that our seemingly small lives have huge value, and in fact our small gestures of kindness and love can make the biggest differences.
We spend so much time pursuing “happiness ” and fulfillment we forget these things are found within ourselves and our unique ability to give of ourselves in love . This is where our true joy is. Loving others.
I found this and thought of” us ”
Life is beautiful!
There is more good on this earth than bad.
Remember the things that count, family, friends, a roof over your head, a warm meal shared with friends.
I was over at the president’s Twitter page when I saw he had reblogged Lou Dobbs talking about George Soros and David Brock. For months I’ve been trying to direct you to kitty links 49-page private memo from blue share, David and George’s plan to take down the President.
Billionaire globalist George Soros is planning to eliminate the majority of Trump supporters from social media before the 2020 election, according to a leaked document.
The 49 page document outlines plans by Soros to exert his influence, via his immense personal wealth, to pressure Big Tech to censor and purge pro-Trump journalists, citizens and outlets ahead of the next Presidential election.
The document obtained by The Free Beacon states that Media Matters and other Soros funded groups have “access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites” so they can “systemically monitor and analyze this unfiltered data.” [Source]
Entitled, Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action, and composed in early 2017, it lays out the Democratic plan to oppose Trump’s presidency at all costs by waging a daily media war, and we have been feeling the results of this strategy since Trump took office, and after nearly two years as president, the media landscape is in utter chaos, and the population is more divided than it has been since the American civil war.
Regarding Soros, he is a known financier of Media Matters, of which he has supported since 2010 in an overt effort to counter news organizations like Fox News. Soros has developed the reputation of being the world’s leading agit-prop bankroller.
“Media Matters is one of the few groups that attempts to hold Fox News accountable for the false and misleading information they so often broadcast. I am supporting Media Matters in an effort to more widely publicize the challenge Fox News poses to civil and informed discourse in our democracy.” – George Soros
The effort to censor social media began in earnest with the election of Trump which saw the rollout of the term ‘fake news,’ and the Brock memo clearly outlines how this plan was intended to bring about the resulting censorship we see today.
From the Brock memo:
Futhermore, the memo discusses how big tech companies like Google, Facebook and Twitter (all of which are openly censoring user accounts today) will be recruited and called upon to collude with the Soros and Brock agenda in order to manipulate the political landscape.
Collusion between Media Matters and social media platforms runs rather deep, as noted by WND:
The document claims Media Matters and far-left groups have “access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites” so they can “systemically monitor and analyze this unfiltered data.”
“The earlier we can identify a fake news story, the more effectively we can quash it,” the memo states. “With this new technology at our fingertips, researchers monitoring news in real time will be able to identify the origins of a lie with mathematical precision, creating an early warning system for fake news and disinformation.”
Again, if open censorship of American independent media is allowed to take root, everyone will suffer in the long run. While politics may seem like the biggest game in town, above this spectacle are the values and traditions that have made this country worth living in. Once this is gone, America will be totally unrecognizable, and billionaires like Soros will be become our de facto kings and lords.

Who are Media Matters?
This memo is so important to National Security, I can’t say enough how important this is. This is a coupe against the president and clearly shows the media bias. They are told to lie and go after anyone who likes Trump. It’s David Brock and George Soros! You’re going down!
Donald Trump’s policies are helping his billionaire friends while making the middle class pay. We are collecting real stories from real people to show the damage being done to middle-class families in Trump’s America.
Like many so-called leftist non-profits, Adbusters is a creature of globalist foundations. According to research conducted by Activistcash.com , Adbusters takes money from a number of supposedly progressive foundations, including the big Kahuna of leftish foundations – the Tides Foundation and Tides Center. Between 1996 and 2003, Tides doled out $334,217.00 to Adbusters, by far the largest amount of eight foundations donating.
Steve Baldwin  claims Tides received over $7 million from George Soros. Although the monetary connection between Tides’ founder Drummond Pike and the arch globalist  Soros is somewhat murky, researcher Ron Arnold  has mapped out numerous connections between the two so-called philanthropists. Under IRS rules, Drummond is not obliged to reveal who he receives money from to fund a large number of supposedly progressive organizations.
There is no license from a magistrate in the UK for a marriage . If the marriage is not in a church and is to take place in a registry office a license is required issued by the registry office for that marriage . . A church wedding requires a passport or other identification ., proof of residence within the parish , a bill for example . A decree absolute for a divorced person which is all dealt with by the vicar or priest in charge of the Church . As a Foriegn national MM may have been required to have a license from a local register office as well .
I would dispute the stories of the wedding being a “sham ” .JD The Archbishop of Canterbury is the principal leader of the Church of England and the symbolic head of the Worldwide Anglican Communion representing almost 100 million people . The Queen is the Supreme Governor of the Church of England , in effect representing God here on this earth .
The First Archbishop of Canterbury was Augustine of Canterbury 597 ., there has been an Archbishop of Canterbury for 1400 years .
To suggest a “sham ” marriage would be sanctioned by the Queen as Supreme Governor of the Church of England and Justin Welby as the leader of the Church of England and 100 million Anglicans is frankly not possible , jeopardising a 1400 year. old institution for MM is too much of a stretch .
The record of of a Royal marriage is not legally required to be shown to the general public ., however it is a legal requirement for the marriage certificates to be signed, and these records belong to both the state and the Church.They will eventually be (historically )available ) A sham marriage would simply not be allowed . It would cause a constitutional political , legal and ecumenical crisis and could mean all marriages conducted by Anglican priests wordwide to be null and void . . The birth certificate is essentially a private affair , any marriage between a senior member of the RF is in effect state owned and is governed by both church and state .
The RF can do a lot of things but not this .
When we begin to pull back the curtain we quickly run into figures like Prince Charles, who recently met with the heads of 18 Commonwealth countries to consolidate climate emergency legislation which was promptly passed in the UK and Canadian Parliaments. At the end of the meeting Charles said that we “have 18 months to save the world from climate change” and called for “increasing the amount of private sector finance flowing towards the supporting sustainable development throughout the commonwealth”.

Cortez explaining why she ran for her seat at 9mins 42 seconds.
The’ New Green Deal’, ironically the use of REE in the manufacture of certain wind turbines is far from’ Green’ and is highly toxic to us and the planet these people claim to love.
Kitty, my research has led me to strip mining in an ancient forest with delicate ecosystems. That will never return once this starts happening. Correction is happening. Those solar panels are very polluting to make.
First, mining and refining the elements is highly toxic. Rare earths are (confusingly) not rare geologically, but the ores often contain radioactive elements like uranium and thorium. Separating the elements into pure metals useful for manufacturing is also difficult. (The quantum properties that make the rare earth elements so useful for electrical and magnetic applications are also what make them hard to disentangle from each other.) The byproducts of the extraction process include dangerous gases and radioactive wastewater, which is usually stored in tailings ponds.
From my understanding and I sent my husband to oil drilling in Canada is what’s called mud. It’s the water, the proprietary chemicals that help break up materials in the earth. They get pumped out into a tailing pond, where they may be aerated and dispersed into the air and will come down when it rains. Yes, it’s toxic as hell, but that’s your problem now.
Kitty, I’m very excited about going back to space, as a kid in the ’60s and 70’s watching the Apollo missions gathered around one TV was so exciting. The new adventurers to plant flags on the moon and beyond.
