The World’s in a Sorry State
I won’t add to the misery by posting pictures of the thousands of refugees (I refuse to call them migrants) risking all in the struggle to break free from IS. You’ve all seen them.
Among these refugees are surely people with a valuable contribution to make to any society, teachers, farmers, medical personnel, you name it, they’ll be among those crowds. What can be done? All we get from the politicians is rhetoric and bluster.
What is needed is a charismatic leader, capable of organizing the logistics, not just in Europe but in the wider world. Syria is not a huge country, and there are plenty of countries – Russia, Australia, USA, Canada etc etc etc – large enough where to welcome a few thousand families would not be an overwhelming task.
We’re in for the long haul, so we’d better start now.
