In the End!

Leave a comment

In the end I am starting the question if my current job is worth its negative effect on my depression caused by a very negative environment at work caused by those who put the company first before both customers and employees.

And the answer is getting more and more towards no as in the end my own health both physical and mental is more important than any job as another job can always be found and I only one life.

Where Did the Sense of Wonder Go?

Leave a comment

The saddest thing to see in this modern world of ours is the lack and any true sense of wonder from the people around me. It is as if the modern world has bred it or beaten it out of them never to return. I know that children always have a sense of wonder when young but it now quickly disappears as they get older.

What does not help this the situation of a modern world around us which both discourages and overloads the sense of wonder especially in a media which both discourages this sense and imagination. This all made worse by a society which is simply indifferent to the world around it and more than ever self-centred and geared to more selfish needs of the individual.

So we end up with a modern world which lacks one of the basic things needed to move forward a basic sense of wonder after all without this no one is ever going to explore or think about the world around them even just sit in happy amazement about the world itself.

This lack of sense of wonder results in a modern world which frankly is bland, mundane and if anything stagnant in so many ways even scientifically and socially. I find it very sad and feel sorry for those people who allowed the world around them rob them of their sense of wonder.

But there are still those of us out there who still have our sense of wonder and still know how to use it. I still find myself sitting watching the modern world with a sense of amazement and wonderment of what we have achieved especially the more positive aspects of it!

UKIP: Not the Real Alternative!

Leave a comment

The United Kingdom Independence Party, UKIP, here in the United Kingdom is not a real alternative to the main three major political parties but the last futile attempt of an Establishment represented by Nigel Farage, their leader, to re-establish themselves as the dominant power in the United Kingdom again.

Basically Nigel Farage is a rich Englishman who sees Europe as a threat to his own power base within the British Establishment who is backed by the said Establishment. He is not doing this for the good of the United Kingdom or it’s people but for his and associates own selfish reasons regardless of the actual damage it will do to the country.

As I said before UKIP and Nigel Farage are almost the death throws of the Establishment here in the United Kingdom which has become very disconnected to the country around them and anachronism in a Modern United Kingdom so they are not real alternative or even good for the United Kingdom socially, economically and even politically.

In the end all UKIP and Nigel Farage will succeed in doing in the coming General Election here in the United Kingdom in 2015 is to split the vote resulting in a hung and ineffective Parliament yet again. In addition all that UKIP will do is stir up the already anti immigrant and Muslim feelings among those more ignorant people of the United Kingdom.

All in all both UKIP and Nigel Farage in the end will damage the United Kingdoms standing even further than the major three Political Parties have all ready done over the past decades though they may act as the final straw which breaks the back of a British Electorate who are fed up of governments who put their own interests before that of the people of the country, or some of us could always hope for!

Battling My Depression Yet Again!

Leave a comment

At the moment I am both battling my depression and those around me who want to drag me down with their trivial lives and opinions which is eating into my time and my creativeness. Though this time it not frustrating as much as it would in the past which in itself is a step forward.

Unlike last time I am battling through it writing just more slowly but I am not allowing it to stop me totally as it did before. It is hard work but something I have to do if I want to progress in my battle against my depression and to learn to be creative without my depression.

So once again I am fighting the good battle and for my future!

The Height of Laziness In Business!

Leave a comment

I have always found those top level managers who just look at the figures and statistics to work out if their businesses is working well and making a profit a very lazy thing to do. After all a business is more than a set of figures but made up of people who strangely cannot be quantified by numbers.

It is my personal view that figures only tell a part of what is happening in a business and only partially useful in working out what is going in a business in a broad sense not what is actually happening on the ground where the people actually work and produce the money the business produces.

Hence those top level managers who just depend on looking at the figures and statistics really to not have a feeling how the business is going in so much how their customers and feel about the business and it’s products. In essence they become remote from the business itself and it’s customers and employees to a point they create their own Ivory Towers.

Sadly we see this happening all around us as top level managers and businesses put profits first before their customers and employees even the products they produce whose quality have dropped noticeably.

This is certainly both a modern and very old trend as far as business something which we all hoped had gone away and had for a long time. It is certainly not a very enlightened way to do things which always leads to trouble as people become very dissatisfied with the situation.

Add to this things do not have to be this way and decades ago when people did business or produced things they did it with a thought both for their employees and customers and still made big profits. These businessmen actually spent time understanding their business beyond the raw figures and statistics and reaped the benefits.

But as always in our modern world people forget when a crisis hits how do the basic things falling back on what they think are tried and trusted methods of doing business forgetting the basic fact they never worked the first time and the trouble they created!

It’s Time For Idealists and Free Thinkers!

Leave a comment

Here in the United Kingdom it is time for Idealists and Free Thinkers to speak out countering the close minded and extremely conservative government and establishment which is currently crippling our country and stopping it moving on to a much needed and deserved brighter future.

More in the past when such people were more common here in the United Kingdom who used the media of the time to spread their message to the people around them to change the world around them, sometimes they were successful. It was an English tradition when Idealists and Free Thinkers stood up and voiced their opinions more openly and they were more respected by people around them because they did.

But our recent history such people are not treated as well by society in question especially by the establishment and branded as trouble makers and get accused of rocking the boat. If anything our modern society has become very closed and resistant to change even if it is for the better. The result of this are easily seen our society around us and in the media as our society is starting to become very sterile and static to a point nothing will ever changes any more and the same mistake are made again and again!

My personal view it is time both Idealists and Free Thinkers stood up again and start to speak out again about what is wrong with society, government and establishment regardless of the actions of others to stop them. After all the internet gives them unparalleled access to a media which touches more people than in the past.

My view this must happen sooner than later as it is time people start to think about the world around them and how to change it before it is too late to do so. One thing both Idealists and Free Thinkers is to get people to think and even discuss things.

The Same Old Same Old Politics!

Leave a comment

Once again the General Election here in the United Kingdom is almost upon us and once again all the political parties are peddling the same old message that somehow business and the rich will once again save the country. Though this time they are also peddling the message they will make the life of poorly paid easier and reduce taxes.

This strangely was exactly the same message all the parties peddled at the last General Election though without the background of the so called credit crunch but now in a background of a world economy which is slowly recovering.

Though this time with the presence of United Kingdom Independence Party there is more of a sinister nationalistic undertone though the party in question is yet another version of the Conservative party with more of an anti-European and more pro-rich platform.

So once again we here in United Kingdom are going to be assailed by all the major political parties with the exactly the same empty promises they have given the Electorate here for decades. Not one political party, including United Kingdom Independence Party, has come up with one new radical policy or new way to break the cycle of boom and bust our economy has suffered over past decades so our country move forward not be stuck in the same cycle.

Then all the major political parties wonder why the Electorate here are not engaged with politics any more with them trying to sell them the same old tired promises. What makes it worse the political parties seam incapable and so remote from the Electorate they cannot change their messages.

There must be a growing number of people like myself in the United Kingdom who are screaming for something different and new on the political landscape as we are getting bored and fed up of the same old same old messages from the major political parties!
