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!

Just Why Do We Still Define Ourselves By Our Job?

Leave a comment

What I still find fascinating people in our modern world still define themselves by their job all made stranger by the fact over our careers, unlike the past, we tend to have number of jobs. It did make more sense in the past as we tended to follow our fathers into their trade and with lack of a surname it made sense to use the person’s trade as a surname to distinguish between people.

But in the modern world, especially with faster and easier communication, and advent of surnames it makes less sense to me why people still define themselves by their trade or job. Though I suspect it’s because in our modern world, due to unnecessary pressures on life put on by governments and corporations, people live to work rather than work to live. That is they put their career and earning of money before themselves and family which has resulted in some problems in the fabric of our society.

Even I have fell into same trap in my 30s to a point work dominated my life at the expense to my personal life and hobbies which ended up with myself living to work rather than working to live.

But in later years, especially when I started to do something about my depression, I started to realise that this was not a healthy thing to do especially in a year I did not work at all because of my depression. I came to the conclusion it was better to define myself as me and the favourite things and interests as they defined me better than my job which has become now a means to earn money rather than my life.

In the end I have been more happier and comfortable with this new definition of myself as it is close to what defines me as my job does not define me any more.

Has Lying Become Accepted in the Modern World?

Leave a comment

As I get older I start to really wonder about the world about me not because I am getting older just slowly waking up to it because I am getting older and I started to think, has lying become accepted in the modern world?

I say this as we are surrounded by people, companies and governments who constantly pump out half truths to blatant lies about the world around us!

We know that this is happening and people accept it as the normal state of affairs in the world regardless of the fact the large majority of people where brought up, regardless of culture, that lying is bad even half truths.

All made worse by the fact that they come up with the lame excuse that it is the way of the world!

I must not be only one who wonders why it is the way of the world and we have to accept it from anyone including governments, companies and individuals?

The Modern World: A Paradise for Closed Minds!

Leave a comment

As I have gone through my life so far I have seen a great change in the world around me, this may be because I am growing older but I suspect it is more that our world has changed!

I have said before that our modern world now is a paradise and pitched towards a stupid populous rules by a few of slightly less stupid people but it is far worse than this as these people are closed minded to a point of being fearful of anything that is new.

It shows in the every day politics and religions of the world especially in the West which are now dominated by those who are conservative by nature who look backward to values which were even archaic decades ago. Such views including the sanctity of marriage, openly anti-homosexual and even extreme nationalism as shown in Eastern Ukraine recently by so called Pro-Russian Activists.

In the end our world around us is getting more closed minded and conservative to a point at some point it will stagnate and collapse much as the Roman Empire did in it’s time.

Those of us who are still open minded, passionate for change and the such should start to push the world forward again before it is too late!

Sort of Says It All!

Leave a comment

What is always very sad on my journal is the fact people read the lighter entries but seam to avoid the more politically orientated entries almost with passion. Though I should not be surprised as it sort of reflects the modern world around me that is a world full of people who more concerned with the trivial rather than real issues.

I think I am not only one both in the United Kingdom who has noticed this singular fact about our society but as always the comment falls on deaf ears sadly exactly as the people who hold the power here want.

Who needs an actively oppressive government for the few to keep power when apathy rules a society!

A Fine Line to Tread!

Leave a comment

What is coming out of the United States with the controversy of Guns after the series of shootings last year and continuing problems with guns they are having there with yet another story about a school teacher stopping a potential shooting at yet another school in United States that there is a fine line you have to tread with guns and their control.

Any sensible person in any society knows that weapons and society do not mix be it guns, knives and the such and know weapons always lead to violence even outside of the criminal fraternity!

So as a society they put in place controls on the weapons both legally and as a society as a whole in so much society as a whole demeans it unacceptable to carry such weapons. Those who break this rule are punished by the legal system with the full support of society has a whole.

In these societies weapon control works because society as a whole backs it, though like anything it is not fool proof but certainly reduces the effect of the weapons on society in general.

But when a society, as in United States, who are unwilling to give up the weapons to a point of justifying the carrying of the weapons they have crossed a fine line which weapon control is simply not going to work mainly because they accept the presence of weapons in their society.

They may make the right noises when innocents are killed using weapons within their society but they are unwilling to remove the cause because they are unwilling to give up the weapon which did the killings.

If as a society is unwilling to get rid of these weapons as a whole they are going to have to accept that such killings are going to happen. It is hard thing to say but history bares this out time and time again!
