What Do I Want?

Posted: 11 August, 2019 in Brexit, Comment, Life, Politics, United Kingdom

I made the comment on a social network that I would not become the monster the Brexiteers want me to become.

I said this because Brexit will turn the United Kingdom into an intolerant, racist and isolationist country much as the Britain depicted in the film V for Vendetta. The only way to survive such a country you would have to become a monster who turns a blind eye to the abuses of human rights because the government removes anyone who does not fit into their own narrow twisted morality that is anyone who is not white, homosexual or Christian.

I could not remain silent I would have to speak out anyway I could even if it meant I was imprisoned or disappeared.

Of cause there are those out there who say my view of a post-Brexit United Kingdom is very dark and say it will never happen here. But the writing is already on the wall as our current Prime Minister and the Conservative Party are prepared to compromise our Democracy so they can get their Brexit at any cost.

This further supported by Conservative Ministers and MPs openly saying they want to spy on us more, remove our rights especially connected to work even push those who supported the United Kingdom remaining in the EU. All very reminiscent of 1930s Germany and the rise of the National Socialist Party under Hitler.

History is repeating itself in modern Britain and people are once again turning a blind eye to it as they want an easy life rather than fight for what they know I right.

I have got side tracked but I felt I needed to explain why I said what I said.

On the social network someone asked me what did I want to happen here in the United Kingdom now to which I answered I wanted people in the United Kingdom to remember that they are Human Beings which would be a start.

It may sounds very simple but if we remember we are Human Beings, we will remember that we are all mortal and all the same under the skin regardless of our beliefs, sexual orientation and colour of skin.

It would be a small start in the right direction.

Reading and Imagination

Posted: 10 August, 2019 in Comment, imagination, Life, reading

I work with some different people one of which who read books and they are worried how well written it is, and yes a very poorly written book can be difficult to read.

But it showed they read the book rather than read the book with their imagination as I do. When I read a book I allow my mind’s eye imagine the images the words of the book creates in my own mind.

It is something I have always done helped by a fact my family never suppressed my imagination and I never allowed my school and peers at work grind down my imagination.

Imagination is important to my sanity and creativity as it underpins who I am.

Auschwitz: The Evil of Man!

Posted: 29 July, 2019 in Auschwitz, Comment, Life

Once again this journal entry needs repeating to remind people as once again its significance has become important once again!

Auschwitz is a name which should be etched into our very souls least we forget the evil that was perpetuated there and in other places!

It was one of the main Concentration Camps in which the Nazi’s carried out their Final Solution for the Jews. Something that some people even now denied happened.

This name represents an evil men can do to each other. We have the capacity to do more evil than the metaphysical Christian Demons and Devils. Evil is not in Hell but for a short time a living hell existed within the Concentration Camps like Auschwitz.

We need to learn from this and kept being reminded of this fact least we do it again.

But this is a faint hope of mine as Humanity will do it again, and it has. Humanity still finds it easy to persecute a group because of their religion. It has started again in Europe and America and like last time people justify this hate and fear as defending their Homelands!

Remember Auschwitz before we all let our fears and hate rule over our hearts because if we do not stop demonising a group at the moment it will eventually lead to the same answer again!

I ask could we live with this again?

A Stark Reminder!

Posted: 29 July, 2019 in Comment, Life

In our modern times people need a stark reminder of where our present path both here in the United Kingdom and United States will lead us to. There will be those who will not listen to likes of myself and regard me either as scare munger or left wing activist who needs to be shut up.

I am witnessing history repeating itself and a society make the same mistakes as 1930s Germany but this time it is not the Jews who are the target but Muslims. It seams I am one of the few who is awake enough to see what is happening and I am worried about the direction our country is going as all I see is a dark future for us all.

In this time the following poem by Martin Niemöller a German Lutheran pastor and theologian is a stark reminder that we should open our eyes to what is happening before it is too late and we wake up to a world of intolerance and hate again.

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist

Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist

Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist

Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew

Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me

A Time to Write

Posted: 28 July, 2019 in Comment, Life, writing

Because of what I am going through and a time I need to move on with my life it is time to write again. It will all in an effort to help me get through it and focus my mind on what is happening around me. It is also good way to vent my frustration at the world around me in these difficult times and keep me sane.

It is one of those times I need to put in the effort writing or even just adding to my on-line scarp book. It will be all worth the effort as it will do me good but as always I need to motivate myself to keep going.

Inhumanity is the New Humanity!

Posted: 27 July, 2019 in Comment, Life

What has been come very clear to me over recent years and especially after recent events that people around me have become very self centred even blind to the suffering of people around them. It is as if the only way they can survive our modern world is to become inhuman in so much blind to the suffering of others around them.

I suspect that with all the pressures of our modern life most of which are false and self made on people’s part people have forced them to become very self centred in effort not to sink in a unforgiving world. But to someone like myself it really feels like people are inhuman and uncaring.

My personal view it is a self defeating strategy to survive the world as rather than making surviving easier in our modern world it makes things worse as the unscrupulous take advantage of it to manipulate the people for their own ends. It allows extreme Right Wing to prosper as it feeds off these peoples inhumanity with the inevitable result that innocent people suffer once again just because they believed in wrong religion or politics or wrong skin colour.

In the end the reason why we as a species survived is because of our humanity not because of our inhumanity. The simple fact that we helped each other allowed us survive all that the natural world could throw at us. It has escaped most people individually evolution has not been that kind to us but when we work together as groups our survival are better.

But if we continue on this course of inhumanity it will spell the end of our society and world!

The one thing I have found totally pointless in the past and in the upcoming European Parliament Elections here in the United Kingdom is the fact that Anti-EU and Brexiteer candidates actually take part in the very elections they want to get rid of as an independent United Kingdom.

I have always found this a hypercritical thing to do after all these people want to get rid of the European Parliament power in the United Kingdom not support not by becoming part of the problem they perceive EU. Even the excuse they give that they are becoming part of the European Parliament so they can speed up the process of Brexit which frankly is most pathetic excuse I have ever heard.

Though from past experience of UKIP MEPs in the European Parliament they managed to do nothing effective to speed up Brexit other than greatly annoy our fellow Europeans by accusing them of various anti-British sentiment and acting as a bunch of criminals. That is when they actually turn up for work in the European Parliament as Nigel Farage being worse example of Brexit MEP who really attended but fiddled the system to get expenses he and his party were not entitled to.

As it is now highly likely we as a country are going to stay as part of the EU because of the shambles the Brexiteers and the right have made of Brexit itself because of their own stupidity, criminality and incompetence by voting the said people into the European Parliament is an exercise in the pointless. After all just how are these MEPs going to serve the interests of the United Kingdom in Europe?

By voting in Anti-EU and Brexiteer MEPs you re effectively removing any real influence we have in the European Parliament as on past performance such MEPs are lazy, unrepresentative of the constituents they represent and not above claiming expenses from the EU which they are not entitled too.

My personal comment, which will not be heeded they the Brexiteer and Anti-EU out there, is to vote in MEPs who will actually represent the needs of the constituents they represent as in the end they will have a far greater influence on the EU than the Anti-EU and Brexit MEPs who will be a total waste of time largely ignored by out fellow EU members.
