A ‘deficit of ethics’

Sheila Liaugminas

One of the main causes for the global financial crisis, Pope Benedict told G20 leaders.
The pope sent a letter to Britain’s Gordon Brown at the start of the summit last week, and it got little attention in the pop media circus around the events and especially, the Obamas.
But Benedict’s letter made incisive points. He told the leaders he appreciated…

"the meeting’s noble objectives based on the conviction, shared by all the participating Governments and international organizations, that the way out of the current global crisis can only be reached together, avoiding solutions marked by any nationalistic selfishness or protectionism."

This is absolutely correct. Religion provides the framework to support ethics. Ethics are what keep us civilized. Without "civilization" there can be no true "progression" or "progressive thinking" because we will be too busy to look or think or plan or work forward because we will be too busy watching our own backs. Basic trust in humanity is gone, and therefore it becomes a jungle-game of "Survivor."

Well this is a nice Blog on most important facts. I am happy to read this. But I am looking more and more info. Please add some thing more. I shall link from my blogs to this blog to day itself. 
Last week I have found a nice informative guide on HIV from following URL http://www.helpcure.com/hiv/ 
This guide says - How To Cure HIV Through herbal medicines and Holistic Treatment. Guide claims that HIV viruses can't be killed but they can be ousted out of the body cells using bio magnetic repulsion or something written. I dreamt of a HIV free world after reading this guide.
Hope to read more from you people soon.  
 Wish you all a nice and fantastic Day for you
