My Republican Feelings Are On The Rise!

Leave a comment

As I get more and more disillusioned with the British Establishment as a whole as it gets more and more remote from the people it once served and includes both our Parliament and Royal Family the more my Republican feelings increase!

This is at total variance to how I was brought up which was with a respect of the Royal Family and the Queen herself but over the years both the various scandals surrounding the Royals themselves and the fact they are the figurehead of an establishment which has cared less and less for the people it serves, I have started to turn away from them and question their very existence and importance to the country.

I am slowly coming to conclusion for this country to move forward into a new brighter future we need to get rid of both the establishment and the Royal family themselves as both under the pretence of representing a British Tradition which represents a long gone Empire and way of life which frankly has no real place in our modern United Kingdom.

If anyone has actually been watching what has been happing in the United Kingdom would of noticed that as a nation we have become a multi-cultural, a multi-faith and remarkably tolerant nation.

But this is tempered by an establishment and Royals who still represent a United Kingdom which is still Christian and very British to a point that there are still some within the establishment who believe we have empire and demand respect from the rest of the world because we are British.

Then we wonder why our whole establishment including Parliament is so out of step with the rest of the United Kingdom as it simply does not have the same views as the country it now represents. Add to this it has become a self serving and self perpetuating system which clings to out dated even archaic traditions because the people within it are too afraid, too greedy and still drunk with the power the establishment gives them even at the cost of the United Kingdom and it’s people future.

I have always been of the view it is time we as a people took steps to remove those within the establishment who have been holding our country back from a brighter future and locked in a past which has long gone or should have been long gone.

And the best start of this change is to finally remove the Queen and Royal family from power and declare a Republic in doing so removing the figurehead of the establishment forcing them to change of be next.

As a final note if I wrote this blog entry some decade ago about the Republic here in United Kingdom I could have been arrested as it was illegal to have such sentiments here in the United Kingdom!

Well it is amazing what a difference a week will make in my life especially when I am slowly coming out of a depression yet again on anti-depressants in so much work has stopped being a major problem bar usual moans at those who really do not care and life is generally starting to get easier for me.

Though there is still some way to go before I really start to become what is a so called normal person but as always it will be with my own unique slant to it as always. There are still a number of major issues I have to over come which include regaining a lost self-belief, confidence and get up and go all taken away from me by the last long down of my depression.

Add to this the fact that I am hardest on myself especially when I am not as creative as I think which successfully stops me being creative in the end. So much like sleeping I have to learn not to worry when I am not creative as like sleep it will eventually come back with a vengeance.

This has all been done with anti-depressants and start of talking therapy but it’s still going to be a rocky road back to a more dynamic and human be so watch this space!

How The Mighty Will Fall!

Leave a comment

All I can say I think we will be seeing the swan song of Microsoft in next few decades as finally it succumbs to it’s own arrogance, lack of innovation and a corporate structure which does not have the ability to change with the changing world around it.

Though I suspect Microsoft will not be only mighty computer company to fall in the next few decades as all have not noticed the rise of likes of the Raspberry Pi Cheap Computer who is exposing both enthusiasts and new generation of computer users to the joys of real computing and just how easy Open Source Software is especially Linux.

But as always Microsoft and it’s associated big computer companies especially in the United States still believe they have the total domination of the computer market with those within industry who are too blind and still have faith in computer software which frankly is showing it’s age, lack of innovation and is the most prone to attack as in Microsoft Windows Operating Systems.

It is now only a matter of time before Microsoft and the like are going to have to change or be left behind to slowly sink into oblivion and obscurity which we are already seeing as the share of Microsoft Software on all devices included tablets has dropped under 20%. Add to this a pressure from governments within Europe, Russia and even China to start to replace the use of Microsoft Windows with Linux especially in government the pressure on Microsoft is only going to get worse over the next decades.

Though in a way Microsoft and associated United States Computer giants are victims of their own corporate structures and strategies which are both geared for profit and not innovation or flexibility plus the fact that NSA spying actives outside of the United States, especially in Europe, has meant that countries now simply do not believe or trust any software generated by the computer giants in the United States now!

If has gone so far in China they are not telling their people not to use computers with Microsoft Windows on and the government has started it’s own development of a Linux which ironically will have government back doors in it.

I suspect we are going to see a major shift in who actually dominates the computer software market over the next few decades as people slowly wake up as people get more exposure to Open Source software in the form of Android and Linux currently all helped by Microsoft’s current batch of Windows which are universally disliked once people actually use them.

But I still suspect the major computer players in computer industry, especially in the United States, will sit in their Ivory Towers in sheer arrogance believe they are still dominating the industry even as things start to fall around them!

Well it is nice to have a slow Sunday all helped by the fact the day was a lot cooler than yesterday. It has mean I have managed to actually do something constructive including some long overdue chores along with some blogging.

If anything it has been what I call a normal day something I have not had in a long time in so much it has been a quiet day with little and no anger on my part even with Ollie the dog being little annoying by bringing in half the garden because it was funny.

As before I am getting used to a quiet mind again without the constant obsessive thoughts which went around my mind when I am feeling down. It’s nice pleasant feeling as I can finally start to think of more constructive things once again though I currently have to get past the feeling sleepy and useless stage of my recovery of my depression.

I need more days like today so I start to feel human again and start to look forward to real future not the hopeless future I thought I had a few months ago.

I Am Not a Radical!

Leave a comment

Some of the things I say in my journal here may seam a bit radical and extreme to some people but it is not what I am.

In truth I am someone who is getting more and more frustrated with the modern world, not because I growing older, but because no one really learns anything new or moves forward any more. Something as I get older is getting worse rather than better because I am slowing growing more disillusioned and unhappy with the way the world around me works currently.

I have kept quiet too long because of my depression robbing of the confidence of actually standing up and saying something because I lacked the confidence to speak out so as I grow older to make up for this I am starting to be more vocal about what I see is wrong with the world around me.

But if someone calls me a radical because I now have the confidence to speak out so be it as I rather be classed as radical than sit silently and suffer like a lot of people around me do!

Sooner a Revolution Comes the Better!

Leave a comment

More and more I observe this modern world of ours we have created the more and more I get disillusioned and angry of the world we have all collectively built.

It’s not the utopia we and our forefathers were lead to believe with the advent of new technologies but a hard edged world which glorifiers the individual, triviality and money above anything else. A world where business and making money has pushed aside the basic humanity from the poor who have to do anything to survive to the rich in their ivory towers.

The world we have created for ourselves is no better than it was in Victorian times even the Dark Ages of Europe which massive inequalities, open bigotry and an over class who want to rule an oppressed underclass.

All supported by governments who serve the new over class rather than the people that actually voted them in which the politicians making all the right noises to the electorate but getting ever fatter off the new over class. All supported by media which spread misinformation to blatant lies how bad the world is to scare people into line strangely owned by the new over class.

What is worse the general populous of the world, especially in the West, know this is going on with few vocal few pointing it out but they seam happy or too lazy to do anything as lot of the time they have actually fell for the media’s manipulation. All not helped by this sense of individualism and basic need to survive which means as long as they are all right jack the world can screw itself even if it is at the subtle eroding of their hard won freedoms.

We as a world are coming out of an economic crash caused by the incompetence and criminal mismanagement of the banking systems in the West especially in the United States but have we learn anything from it and have those who caused the problems been punished?

The answer is no they are still in same positions within the Banks, other financial businesses and even in government doing exactly the same as they did before and as rich and powerful as they were before the economic crash they caused. They will create an economic boom which will be a fragile as the last economic boom in the 1990s which because of it’s foundations is almost doomed to end in yet another economic crash this time could be of an even more monumental scale!

Eventually things should not of stayed the same after the economic crash we should as a whole done something as a society to change things as in Iceland those responsible should have been brought to justice and the whole way Western Capitalism worked should have been brought under the spotlight and both reformed and its act cleaned up.

As I said it is getting a time we need to change things as currently our modern world is doomed for collapse in a spectacular way under it’s own weight, apathy and stagnation. What will be left will not be a pleasant world to live in if there is still a world left that is.

All this is a very stark view of the world but it need to be to get people really thing about the world around them before it is too late plus remind them that we can actually do something about it as what has been shown from recent history that normal people can change the world peacefully and without wars.

As I said at the start sooner a revolution comes the better even if this revolution is just a basic change of how we think and view about the world around us as thing have to change befoe it is too late!

This week has been one first few weeks recently when I have not been too worried about work and life in general all thanks to me doing something about my depression yet again. This even with the problems Microsoft caused me last week with my web sites which is resolving itself in a better way than I expected.

So all in all I am starting to find loft a little more bearable currently al helped by my partner coming back from a 3 weeks in the United States to see a friend and give her a very nice birthday surprise. I’m even starting to enjoy work again and becoming even more productive and relaxed especially with certain members of management. Though I still have some problems with certain colleagues at work but I am getting some comfort they will drop themselves deep in it and now only a matter of time.

As for the rest of my life I am slowly getting back to blogging and rebuilding my small social web site to be a more open social network but still centred around my friends and people I like to keep in contact with. Plus I am keeping myself occupied and creative by starting to sketch fantasy maps to spark off my creativity in the Role-Playing department.

I have to smile over the past few weeks this journal’s mood has bounced around reflecting my moods but that all come with suffering with depression which can mean extreme mood swings especially in my case.
