There is a reason why couples who break up do not see each other. It is to get over and move on. Because if you still spend time together, you will always be reminded of why you fell for each other in the first place.
While many of us may accept the premises that each human life has the same intrinsic value, that all people are equal and that nothing entitles one person to produce more carbon dioxide than anyone else, these are hardly the principles guiding climate policy.
Not by a long shot. These days, the existence of carbon emissions is treated not as a political or ethical issue to be resolved but as an economic asset to be exploited. The atmosphere has been claimed as a private commodity. Corporations, with the aid of the UN, are buying and selling “rights” to pollute it. Consequently carbon trading is now the fastest growing commodities market on Earth.

Under the influence of the October Revolution in 1917, and after reading Soviet leader Vladimir I. Lenin’s Thesis on National and Colonial Issues, on December 1920, Nguyen participated in the 18th Congress of the French Socialist Party, voted for the Party to join the Third Communist International, and became one of the founders of the French Communist Party.
From a patriot to a communist, he affirmed the revolutionary road of national liberation would be through Marxism-Leninsm and the teachings of the great October Revolution.
Same as the date of the Death Anniversary of a Filipino Marxist-Leninist Ka Crispin Beltran. :(
