12 days of Christmas 2020: day 2

Casino, Monte Carlo

Trip to the Casino, Monte Carlo

Trip to Hotel Hermitage, Monte Carlo

Potted History of Monaco

Magnificent Monaco

While I’m not adverse to visiting Monaco, I couldn’t live in a tax haven. It flies in the face of my principles and beliefs. Sure, none of us like paying tax, but if most of us didn’t……………………..the world would be in an even worse state, with even greater inequalities.

Today I’ve chosen a Lenny Kravitz track called It’s Enough, also from the Raise Vibration album,with a rather tense music video which, according to Kravitz:

People are standing up. I’ve had enough of racism. I’ve had enough of war. I’ve had enough of the destruction of the environment and the greed and dishonesty of world leaders. We’ve got to get back on track toward moving forward through higher understanding.

The video (below) is made up of a series of clips that show recent events such as peaceful protests in support of same sex marriage, Colin Kaepernick’s kneeling during the anthem, and Jeremy Corbyn rallies. In contrast, it also shows riots, bombings, shootings, police brutality, and environmental damage. Please note that there is a trigger warning as the video contains disturbing graphic imagery and thus can only be watched on YouTube.
