What a Shallow World We Live In!

Leave a comment

Today I did my shopping around town which does involve a lot of walking and carrying of stuff so myself and my partner use a wheeled shopping trolley to carry our shopping around town as it makes shopping so much easier for us both. At our end gone are the days when I am being a macho man and killing off my hands and arms trying to hump a load of shopping in my hands.

This to some people out there seams like a very uncool thing to do after all wheeled shopping trolleys are for the old and I was told so by someone at work as I popped in to do something at work which I could not do in the end.

Their remark made me think that who was the bigger fool me pulling a wheeled trolley around or them for making such trivial remark that it did not look cool that I had the trolley with me?

I suspect you know the answer already it was the person who make the remark in so much they put how they looked to other people before simple practicalities of carrying a lot of shopping around town.

It also highlighted just how shallow people have become in our modern world worrying more about how people preceptive them before themselves and comfort.

Then there a people like myself who really care little about what people think about me and put myself and simple practicalities before what people think of me. In the end I tend to be the happier person as I am not worrying about trivial matters of how I am perceived by people and simply get on and enjoy my life happier that I have been truer to myself!

Getting Angry About Small Minded World!

Leave a comment

More I read and watch on the media and the internet the more I am getting angry with a world who collective mind is getting more small minded, trivial and self centred. All made worse because people believe such behaviour is totally acceptable in a modern progressive society!

It is the fact that people around me accept this as normal state of affairs which frankly it is not as such behaviour has never had a place in a civilized society and always leads to people being hurt and killed.

In the West we are angry with the actions of Islamic States in Iraq, which is disgusting and appalling, but we turn a blind eye to other behaviours in our own society which can be regarded as equally disgusting and appalling though people are not killed.

I am talking open bigotry by people both in United Kingdom and United States, especially Christians, against Muslims, homosexuals and even those people who do not follow what they consider the norm that is Atheists, Pagans and Wicans. In some cases this has lead to violence not quite as extreme but still presence as any violence even how small is bad and unacceptable!

All this fed by an establishment who want to make such people villains all in an effort to keep their power and privilege all made worse that people are actually allowing them to do this. I suspect in the West people have got lazy and apathetic and allowed themselves to become small minded because it easier than the alternative of actually thinking for themselves!

Do I expect someone out there to read this and sort of wake up what is happening around them and do something different?

No, as this small minded attitude is so ingrained in our society now people do it without thinking and seam incapable of changing their attitudes any more. I know I am being hard on people around me but after my life so far I have grown very cynical about the people around me and their ability to actually change or think for themselves.

Though not all the people I have met through my life have been like this but they have always been the exceptions!

The Modern World Thrives on the Negative!

Leave a comment

From my own observations of the world through social networks on line to daily interaction of people our modern world seams to thrive on the negative be it hate, anger, discrimination and even ignorance. Everyone around me accept this as the normal state of affairs and very acceptable regardless of the fact such behaviour has never been acceptable in any civilised society in the past decades.

It is as if people do not care any more to lazy to do something about it to a point they just go along with everyone else in spreading such negative views, opinions and the such. Some are just pain stupid to believe and not question what is told them.

So now we have surrounded ourselves in a world full of hate, anger and discrimination driven by a media which feeds off it and people who are the targets of such negative thought and actions are now starting to suffer or even die because of this negativity.

And what do people do about it?

Nothing just sit there making the right noises but in the background still feed the hate, anger and discrimination which caused the deaths in the first place on top of which never taking responsibility for their own actions.

People simply find it easier to have negative and destructive thoughts in our modern world as positive thoughts would mean they would have to do something and actually be sociable to other human beings.

When the hate, anger and discrimination visits their own lives all I will say you made your own bed as you did nothing when it happened to others so why should you now expect some to lift a finger to help you?

I know this is a hard attitude but I am slowly getting fed up of large majority of the people around me because their inaction and lack of caring is killing off a once rich society leaving in place a grey shadow full of fear, hate and death!

It’s Not My Fault!

Leave a comment

All we hear from governments, corporations and ever other people in our society when something goes wrong in our modern society. It is as if no one wants to take any responsibility when things go wrong any more and blame everyone else but themselves.

We now certainly live in a blame culture in the Western World even down to our media who seam to blame everyone than ourselves who created the situations in the first place. It has been too easy to blame rather than solve the problems yet another refection just how lazy Western Society has become as it is easier than actually tackling the issues head on as we should.

Here in the United Kingdom it is easier for large group of the general public including the young to blame the immigrants for taking their jobs and rowing them on the dole but rather than knuckling down and actually getting a job or finding a way to make money or living.

Then we wonder why nothing ever gets done or changes in our society because no one will take responsibility for their own actions at all levels of society rather than face the issues which face our society in general something we need to do for our society to move forward.

But until we wake up to this we as a whole will keep saying it’s not my fault and things will never change!

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?
