Friday Inspiration – Touching a nerve

Wicked web we weave 130913

In the news we hear that a British company has been tied to the selling of sodium fluoride to Syria, which is a key ingredient for making Sarin nerve gas. Which made me think about the price we pay for allowing such deadly agents to be produced and sold without stricter regulation on who gets to use these products and for what uses. It made me wonder if we could be considered to be accomplices to the wicked deeds that have been done to innocent Syrian people.

Now, we don’t know for certain that it was these chemicals that were used, nor do we know beyond the stench of self interested politics what the intelligence tells us in full about who has done what and the consequences of future actions. All we do know for certain is that millions are displaced, thousands have been killed and we sit idly by and prevaricate in our safe, cosy lives. How easily we seem to rid our conscience of guilt when it comes to the wholesale slaughter of other humans, what little value we give to others lives.

We have been complicit with many evil acts as nations and both America and Britain has blood on its hands over Chile and Iran to name two for starters.

So with this in mind this weeks Sunday Inspiration (see explanation below) is the following line:

Oh the wicked web we weave
