   Sixty years ago: August 1961 - Temporary barriers put up then building
   of Berlin Wall.

   Now: August 2021 - Another failure of diplomacy when Afghanistan and
   the people over-run and their future blighted.

   Two recent publications

   Discredited certainly, delusional conceivably but that does not mean
   that every Cummings' opinion and judgement is incorrect. His message to
   the joint Select Committees meeting 26^th May 2021 of a system riddled
   with dither, delay and chaos is supported by the public record, as in
   `The 2020 Coro-Nation Diaries - Worlds Turned Upside Down'

   Published autumn 2020 this is a factual record of Phase 1 of the UK
   coronavirus pandemic compiled daily alongside people's diaries during
   March to July 2020. See Non-Fiction for more details

   It is still available as a pdf [[27]The 2020 Coro-Nation Diaries and
   below] as it has been since September.

   Either Cummings' analysis has some validity or he should never have
   been in such a senior post in the first place. But his walk-on role is
   only a small part of the overall tragedy.



   `1974 - A World in Flux'

   Another year of global trauma  - see Non-Fiction for more details

   Colombia, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Northern Ireland, the inter-dependence
   of nations and the power of multi-national corporations back in the
   news

   As Salvador Allende told the United Nations in 1972, `We are facing a
   ... collision between the great ... corporations and sovereign states
   ... [But the corporations] do not have to answer to anyone and are not
   accountable to ... any parliament.'
