Just starting wonder when the large majority of Leave Voters here in the United Kingdom actually join the rest of us in the real world?

I still love the fact they still falling for the lies of the Leave Campaign and they still hold on to out dated views like Patriotism and Nationalism.

I especially love the fact they still think we have an Empire and still a super power with enough clout to actually force people to trade with us as in the good old long gone days.

More and more I listen to them the more I am coming to the conclusion they are becoming irrelevances in our modern world as in the end they will be left behind when the world starts to move forward again.

I have stopped feeling sorry for them and I am listening to them less and less as all they say is irrelevant now in a modern Britain!

Reconciling the Almost Impossible!

Posted: 9 February, 2018 in Comment, Life

At the moment it is getting more difficult to reconcile the fact that I work in a company which is well entrenched in our Western Capitalism with both my own political and moral views especially with what is currently happening in the Western world around me.

What the recent events including Brexit and voting in of Mr Trump as the President of the United States have highlighted just how rotten to the core our Capitalism in the West has become especially over the past decades. That is a Capitalism which now puts profits before everything else including the environment, human rights and even health of all Human Beings.

I am starting to question if Western Capitalism is really the only way we can do business and really worth it considering the damage it does to human beings and the Environment. All so an small elite of very rich people can benefit from the work of the other 99%.

All this made worse because Capitalism has not always been like that and once benefited all people and allowed the world to move forward. But our modern Capitalism is now corrupted by greed, avarice and inhumanity as I said run by an elite who now have no real understanding of the world around them even the very businesses they run as most inherited their positions rather than actually earned them.

As I said I rather not be part of this world any more and the only reason I am is because I have to pay the bills at home. It is slowly killing me from the inside as working in such an environment especially with people who seam blind to what is happening around them is very soul destroying for me.

In the end all I do is going through the motions of a life made worse by the fact it does not have to be like this in my own country as other countries have proved time and time again Capitalism which takes into account of humans and the environment can work.

It is also one of the major causes of both my depression and anxiety because I have to compromise both my morals and honesty to function in a world which I now have little and no faith in!

What I find fascinating with what is happening in United States is just how the core of the Senate and House of Representatives are starting to speak out against Mr Trump.

Especially now they are likening him to Stalin, Hitler and Fascist Dictators even within his own party are calling him racist and disowning him.

I know Mr Trump is waking up people, especially in United States, what Neo-Liberalism and Austerity actually means in so much it benefits the few at the cost of the many and it encourages the growth of right-wing governments who embrace isolationism of nationalism and patriotism.

In the end the likes of Mr Trump, more so Mrs May and her Ministers here in the United Kingdom, will effectively start to wake people up to the fact that major Western governments and societies have become very corrupt and immoral to the core. It may even stir them into action finally.

As a final comment this corruption and immorality is not exclusive just to the right-wing but also runs deep in all politics and politicians regardless of their political leanings, that is both in the centre and the left!

British Sheep!

Posted: 11 January, 2018 in British Society, Comment, Life, United Kingdom

What really annoys me with people of the United Kingdom the large majority know the country is falling apart and all they can do is stand and watch saying nothing!

As I keep saying just when are they going to do something?

Is it when the Police start to take people who criticise the government away?

The government starts to build internment camps for undesirables who do not fit their twisted morals, that is non-Christians, Disabled, Poor and Homosexuals?

The government starts to censor what they watch and see on the internet?

I have news for these people it will be too late then to do anything and by not doing anything you will be as responsible for the above because you said anything.

And to those who say the above will never happen here in United Kingdom have not being paying attention to current events as it has already started.

We are living in a society which now is starting to look down on the poor, disabled and immigrants highlighted by a right-wing press.

We are living in a society which the governments now can watch your every move under the guise of maintaining security and under the guise of protecting children from pornography have already attempted to limit our access to the internet.

We have a government which want to remove the power of Parliament under the guise of Brexit to replace it with government run by Ministers who in the end up being appointed rather than elected.

All very subtle but nerveless are all attacks on our freedoms and democracy and a path towards an authoritarian government which serves the few not the many.

With all this going on the British people just watch silently lapping up the right-wing presses propaganda believing everything they are told. This is really sad state of affairs for a once great people who once actually thought for themselves and embraced independence who now become sheep who allow the wolves rip their throats out!

2017: The Year That Was!

Posted: 31 December, 2017 in 2017, Comment, Life

Once again I sit at home waiting for the end of an old year, 2017, and new year, 2018, looking forward to a new year with some hope that it will be a better year ahead.

Though it is certainly going to difficult year for certain people especially those who are too afraid to move forward and accept the world has moved on as I feel the new year is going to be the year when those who want to move forward will finally get the opportunity too.

2018 should be year when the world moves on and finally leaves old world behind as I suspect there are growing number of people in the world who want to move on a brighter future and they will start to become very vocal about the fact they will.

Myself 2018 will be a year of change for me as I am fed up of being held back by those people around me who too afraid to move on and have a very negative effect on my life. It is time I started to ignore them and cut them out of my life totally as they have no real contribution to my life. I have allowed these people to influence my life when I should of simply told them to go away or ignore them totally.

I do have a number of plans for 2018 which include getting a new job, learn to become a story teller and set up a new role-playing group all in effort to give myself a new challenges to my life which recently has become static and certainly not a real challenge. It will also give me the much needed kick to my life so it can finally start to move forward.

In the end regardless of what the world around me does in 2018 I am going to move on and leave the world around me behind and make my own personal world far more brighter, imaginative and forward looking personal world.

Growing Old is Not a Crime!

Posted: 19 December, 2017 in Comment, Life

From a comment recently about someone dying their hair another person comment I should dye my hair mainly because I now have greying hair on my temples due to the fact that I am growing older. It sounded like I should hide and be ashamed of the fact that I am growing older which seams something our society seams to propagate.

I keep forgetting I live in a society which claims it is for the young, fit and active which almost feels ashamed about the fact that people grow old and infirm. This sort of attitude I find really strange and sad because it is not as if we as Human Beings have a real choice of growing old and dying.

My personal view it makes people fear growing old rather than embracing something which will happen to us all. It is yet another part of our life which will bring us new opportunities much as when we turned from a child to an adult.

Yes, growing old does being us a whole new set of problems to cope with but the same thing happens at every transition of our lives but it is only when we grow old do we think the problems will blight our lives to a point it is not liveable any more. This I have always found a strange attitude as an human being we are a very adaptable animal so we have ability to adapt to a new situation. It is what is makes us human beings.

I am not afraid of growing old as there is little I can do about it so I aim to adapt and embrace my old age as an normal process of my life. I know certain parts of my life will be little more difficult but I will not allow this to stop living and enjoying my life.

Growing old is something not to be ashamed of but something which is a natural process we all have to go though. Those who try to fight old age make themselves look so foolish in the end!

Christmas Is Upon Us Again!

Posted: 19 December, 2017 in Christmas, Comment, Life

Almost with blinking of an eye Christmas has arrived yet again though it is still sort of sinking in which is not helped by current situation world wide which puts a dark spin on this Christmas. But it is here and when I finally get around to enjoy it I will especially this year because I am spending it with my partner and dogs.

This sort of now reflects my personal view of Christmas which I now regard as a time for people to spend with their friends, love ones and family, enjoying eating, drinking and each other company on a special day of the year. The religious side of Christmas has become insignificant to myself and most of the people around me as in my view it has become irrelevant to our modern world.

I find this very ironic in so much Christmas has gone full circle back to a mid-winter festival now celebrated by all people rather than pagans alone as it was before Christian Church hijacked the festival for their own. I find this idea of Christmas for more comfortable and relevant to my view of the world around me as it fits our modern world so much better than the Christian festival.

Some people out there will of cause be offended and shocked by this view of Christmas saying it is not a traditional especially the Christians out there. But what I will remind them is that I am Agnostic Atheist who lives in a multicultural and multi-faith world and regard Christmas more as mid-winter festival for everyone to celebrate which needs to adapt to fit our new modern world.
