    Dear Christopher Black, After discovering yourself to be such a learned man, I wondered who you might be after reading your article comparing Nato’s recent activity to Operation Barbarossa, and how you developed your disposition towards western governments. After your experience in Rwanda, I now understand and empathize. However, in every conflict, there are always two sides, and the stories that are told and remembered are left to the victor/victim to write or re-write as favors the author. World hegemony is an interesting game played on a stage far beyond myself, yet my best tools are information and an educated vote. Woefully, there are few who can wield either without some bias. We disagree on the need for balance in world hegemony, and while you aspire that America and western governments may not be without blame, there are other leaders of non-state and state powers who require a balance on this world stage, albeit asymmetric in force and in rules of engagement. In a perfect world we could have more action than discourse to solve poverty, World Hunger, or develop Free Energy. Sadly there are too few people like Mother Theresa or Nikola Tesla, and greed and capitalism rule the majority. You are a thoughtful, brave, and courageous man and my comments are left to achieve balance, rather than the rhetoric of “..a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing”.

      It’s not just my experience in African and what the west did there but also in Europe and elsewhere with my other work eg counsel to President Milosevic. There are in my experience two sides to a story as you say one true and one false and the western media puts out always a false image of reality which I had to learn the hard way. I am an admirer of Nicola Tesla but certainly not Mother Teresa who was, for me, a hypocrite of the first order, pretending to help the poor but never ever wanting to change the society that produced that poverty. But I appreciate your comments.

        E.K.:
        Kind of an oxymoron re: your “the need for balance in world hegemony” , that is if I understood you correctly…
        it’s either hégémonie (eg “hégémonie mondiale”) or balance of/ between 2 or more world powers…
        Apologize if I misunderstood you 😩

        D’accord sur Mère Térésa, y a beaucoup d’autres personnages connues “charitables”… princesse Di, par exemple…😏

    Hey Christopher,

    My name is Patrick. I am not sure you remember me, I am actually most sure that you do not. We met at Mango Tree in Arusha during the Augustin Ndindiliyimana case. I had attended the proceedings earlier and we spoke about how the defense was totally unprepared, and how the whole process felt like a farce. That was 2013, and I just went back to pull some court documents from the case. I just wanted to congratulate you on the acquittal. Hope life has been good for you since.

    Cheers,
    Patrick

      Hmmm, might remember if I knew the full name and could picture you since I met so many people there. 2013-yes was there to argue the appeal then. Thank you for your support and congratulations. You a journalist? I met several that time.

      Thanks Patrick, sorry for the late reply, wordpress didn’t alert me to your comment. Thank you, it was a very difficult struggle to win that case but they tried to fix things right to the end. As for me, well, I’m ok. You still in Arusha?

    Hello, I attended both Milosevic meetings you spoke at in London in the early 2000s. At the first you convinced me of his innocence and after the second meeting (actually in a restaurant – we all went for a meal) you introduced me to the idea that the Rwanda narrative was not what it seemed. You are a courageous and principled man and I salute you. I visited Serbia last month and laid flowers on President Milosevic’s grave on behalf of his supporters in Britain. Best wishes from London, CK (aka Christopher James).

      Thank you very much for your support and reminding me of that experience in London. Those meeting seem long ago now. I remember going to a restaurant with a group of people though I cannot remember the names now but I am sure I would recognise you. I am bad with names but good with faces. 🙂 Feel free to contact me at my email which is bar@idirect.com. I am on facebook too if you wish to connect that way. I was in Serbia last a couple of years ago but did not have a chance to visit his grave but did get a chance to visit with his family who are still in exile in Moscow.

    There are very few people who know the truth about this evil we all have to live in. Fewer still are any who come out to oppose it. You are one of those and it is because you are kind, moral and decent. It also helps to be learned and intelligent. Thanks Karl

    Hello Sir-
    Thanks for you insights and ideas.Don’t know if tis is the right forum-but just read your article-International law-The Americans dont give a damn”.are we seeing a dry run to get Assange at the Chilirean embassy in the Uk/
    Keep the fighting the fight.Peace-

      you can send me a message on faecbook or my email is bar@idirect.com. Re Assange, I do not think so because the British would have to expel the Ecuadoren embassy staff first and seize the building. The US cannot do that in the UK. And I doubt the UK would ever do such a thing-they can do bad things but the regard the rules of diplomacy as sacred almost. The Americans are alone on this and made themselves look like fools. But frankly I am not a fan of Assange and have my doubts about who he really works for.

      My apologies, somehow didnt pay attention to comments here: Re Assange, no I think his situation will linger for awhile longer. Better for them to keep him semi-isolated where he is.

  10. Mr. Black,

    Let us extend an offer to you and/or your readers to participate in an interview by answering the (4) questions posed to Alfred recently in post: “An Interview Of Alfred Gluecksmann” at The Oneness of Humanity. Future posts will carry the same title: “An Interview Of (Your name here)”.
    ***
    Question 1…) What was your primary motivation for entering the world of blogging on the worldwide web – on the internet?
    ***
    Question 2…) How would you describe yourself with regard to spirituality? What were some of the most memorable transforming points across the years (books, personal contacts, mystical experiences, etc.) in the developing of your current spiritual perspective?
    ***
    Question 3…) What is your greatest wish for readers as a consequence after reading/considering your writings?
    ***
    Question 4…and final) Can you offer any advice to people having a difficult time dealing with government and media lies, especially as it pertains to so many average citizens who hold erroneous perceptions on important events and situations around the Earth?
    ***
    If you (or anyone who passes this way – this proposal is open to all) would like to share your (their) thoughts take as many words and as much time as necessary to accurately convey your responses, then – when completely satisfied – email them (please refrain from email formatting as it makes it more difficult to copy/paste/edit into a WordPress post) to jerryalatalo (at) hotmail.com., whereupon I will publish each individual’s response as a stand-alone post – with the ultimate goal of inclusion/compiling in a book.

    The potential book’s title has yet to become decided upon. There are no rules besides the obvious (no profanity, etc.), no word-count limits (1,000/10,000 words might suffice as a suggested lower/upper limit) or time deadlines (hoping for pre-Christmas 2017 self-publish date – Kindle, Smashwords (eBook), Amazon (softcover) … ), but only honest observations.

    Thank you and best regards,
    Jerry Alatalo

      Hi Jerry, My apologies, I just saw your message today. Here are my short answers: 1. I began to blog to circulate my writing. 2. I am not a spiritual person. 3. I hope readers are informed or moved by my writing. 4. Big question-difficult to answer-read widely, think critically, don’t be afraid to tell the propagandised that they are misinformed.

      • Perhaps you’re old enough to remember Dallas Cowboys star running back Duane Thomas … His was a similar interview style. 🙂 One also becomes reminded of a comedian talking about Thoreau’s famous quote, “Simplify, simplify. simplify …”, the comedian commenting, “wouldn’t one ‘simplify’ have been enough?” Anyway thanks for the (succinct) reply. Peace.

        Hi Jerry, well, it’s my training as a trial lawyer-say only what needs to be said. The spirituality question I sough of blew off-but didn’t mean to-just that as an atheist my relationship with life and its meaning is hard to fit into that term-though I have a sense of the spiritual but not coming from religion or related belief systems-so not knowing how to express it I gave it a one liner.
