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.

Where to start with the Role-Playing writing?

Because I am unsettled by everything going on in my life I cannot really focus on one thing currently when I need to not to be dragged down into a pit of worry over something I cannot do anything about. It’s not as if what is happening is going to be a great change in my life though it will make me a bit more fragile in the end.

I am back to were I was before Christmas a point when I want to do so much but I do not have the energy or mind well enough to focus on something because of the Anaemia. All I can do currently worry and sit around feeling sorry because of the lack of energy.

I know I need to dig deep within myself to get something started as I cannot let this problem dominate my life so much I allow it to slip away. I want so much to start as I have so many ideas inside my mind which want to come out which is starting to frustrate me again.

I need to find a way to get my mind started again!

Sadly I am being a victim of the Conservative Government’s NHS squeeze a process which should of only be a quick process which due to lack of funds given to NHS is going to turn out to be process which is going to take over month to solve.

I don’t blame the NHS but I blame Mrs May’s Government totally whose unnecessary Austerity measures have starved the NHS all in an attempt to force us to use Private Health Services which people like myself cannot afford.

What makes this worse for me I have a Bleed Anaemia which has already endangered my life once and it could do the same again at any time.

All this so Mrs May’s Government can claim the NHS does not work and force us all to take out Medical Insurance from Companies which are paying the current government to destroy the NHS.

This jut highlight how corrupt our government here in the United Kingdom has got especially the Conservative government which runs the country for big business and an elite at the expense of the people.

All made worse by a Labour Party more intent on destroying itself and ignoring it own voters. A Labour Party which now supports the Conservative plans to destroy the country than be saviour of our NHS and public services.

So in the end I am yet another person effected by the Conservative Government’s policies and I an very unhappy about it as because of them I cannot work, I do get full pay luckily, and they have put my own life at risk!

All for what? Nothing!

Looks like Facebook yesterday tried to censor anti-government posts targeted at the Mrs May’s Government here in the United Kingdom which has not gone unnoticed by those who were effected!

I suspect that Facebook will feel the backlash though it has gone unnoticed by the mainstream press which makes the whole situation highly suspicious indeed!

There are those out there who will say I am making a mountain out of a molehill but on past form of Facebook and Mrs May’s Government it would not surprise me if it was an attempt by our government with the conclusion of Facebook to suppress any opposition to their policies here in the United Kingdom.

Be warned this may be the first of the attempts by Mrs May’s government to censor any opposition post on Facebook and beyond so we need to be very vigilant just in case they try this again!

I don’t call Mrs May’s government Fascist for nothing!

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.
