for who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun?” (Ecclesiastes 6:12, King James Version). There is no book of literature (such as the Bible) to use as a guide to live by, so there is really nothing to gauge morals or ethics by other than a gut instinct.

THE U.S OWES THE WORLD AN APOLOGY The latest allegations of transatlantic espionage conducted by the U.S. against its European allies have indeed placed both President Barack Obama and the U.S. State Department in the global hot seat; for righteous reasons, as our dominant international position has caused us to become intoxicated by our control. An act of gross hypocrisy has been committed, and we have misused our political position.
