Life is For Remembering!

Leave a comment

I was little annoyed with a persons near to me who found it funny that I always have a story or known someone who had done something they are talking about.

Few days ago for example someone made a joke they were going to stay over night at work as they had nothing to go home for to which I said I once knew someone who did that once which they found amusing and made some derogatory remarks much to my annoyance.

Myself I found this behaviour immature as just because, even with quiet life, I have travelled more, met a wider range of people, had more experience of work places so in the end it is not surprising I have few stories and memories of people, places and events as I have lived over half Century so far!

It does highlight a worrying modern attitude of people who constantly put down those who dare to be different in effort to make them conform to modern society’s strict, unimaginative and uniform nature where no one should be different!

Extreme Measures But Need to Be Done!

1 Comment

I am coming to conclusion the United Kingdom, much like Australia, should have compulsory voting as it is time to force those people to take part in our Democracy as by not doing so they are damaging it more than ever the Conservatives ever will!

This may be an extreme view in some people’s minds but I am fed up of living in a country with a large majority of people who give lip service to our democracy but do not take part in it.

Democracy by definition means we all take part running the country not a few!

The Illusion of the West!

Leave a comment

It has been few days of thinking about the world around me especially how the West does business and treats its people which has resulted in some very stark thoughts on my end.

I have concluded that we in the West really do not treat each other well especially those in positions of power who are very quick to abuse and take advantage of their positions to line their and their supporters pockets.

We live in a whole society based on the lies of Capitalism, Freedom even morals in which if we rock the boat we are quickly shut up they those people to scared to rock the boat. Strangely those in power need to do nothing as the fear they have generated via their lies make sure those who speak out are suppressed buy the very people they suppressed themselves.

And all you get from the people around you everyday is the world is all right, government is doing a good job especially from those evil terrorists in the Middle East. All this regardless of the fact the governments in the West are taking apart our social nets to save those who have fallen on hard times, reducing our freedom of speech in the name of security, reduce the quality of medical care for socially disadvantaged and so on.

And what do most of the people of the West do just sit there and take it too afraid to say anything in the vain attempt to get a good life of the rich which they will never get.

Yes, if you look under the thin crust of the Western Society underneath is a corrupt and dark society created solely created to serve a small group of parasites called the Super-Rich.

Our society is not all right even here in the United Kingdom and by turning a blind eye to it you are allowing it to continue and get worse!

Growing Older But Moving Forward!

Leave a comment

After taking to various colleagues at work and observing some people on Facebook and other social networks what became very clear their attitudes where what be called old fashioned not what I would of expected different to those of my parents.

This in itself was worrying as I would of expected over the half decade of my life attitudes of the people around me to change to a point that I would feel as if the world had moved on leaving behind.

But I do not feel that way if anything it sounded far to familiar something I grew up with that is nothing has really changed in over 40 years. If anything it has been me who has changed and moved on to new opinions and attitudes which means I feel out of step with world around me not because the world moved on but I have moved on.

This is all wrong on so many levels!

Depression: A Careless Remark Can Hurt the Most!

Leave a comment

I suspect everyone who has suffered or is suffering depression will know this fact that a careless remark, even when made in jest, can really hurt someone who suffers depression. The other person not really understanding both the power of their words and the fact that with all the emotional, confidence and self-esteem issues a person suffering depression the words can really hurt the person suffering the depression emotionally.

They do not see the effects of their words on the person in question mainly because of a lack of understanding on their part and the person who has the depression puts on a face that everything is fine and the remark did not effect them at all. Those of us who suffer depression know we are good actors and we can hide our true emotions behind a front of being happy and well balanced behind which we are a mess of emotions!

It is not that someone not suffering depression treat people with depression with kid gloves but a simple fact people should simply learn the simple fact that what they say to someone can have a profound effect on them. This includes simple flippant remarks made in jest.

People need to be taught at school or by their parents that what they do or say to someone else can have both have a positive or negative effect on them and the lesson drummed into them. This simple lesson will make lives so much simpler when they are older and reduce the stress between people when they interact with each other.

Myself I only leant this lesson when I finally did something about my depression in my 40s at which point I woke up to the fact my actions and words did have an effect on others both in a positive and negative way. All highlighted by the fact at the height of my depression my negative attitude had a real effect on others especially those who could not cope with the attitude. Only those who who cared about me had real resilience to cope with my constant negative attitude stuck with me.

One thing someone who has learnt to live with their depression, like myself, learn as they come in terms with it, is the fact what we say and do as people has a real effect on those around us. We also learn that we have to think before we say anything to someone and watch what we say even if a flippant remark made in jest.

The one time depression has a very beneficial effect on the sufferer as we learn to live with it we learn the true power of words and what we say to others. Something sadly most people fail to learn this lesson and do damage to those around them because their lack of understanding of the power of words!

A Reality Check For Capitalists!

Leave a comment

I think after a unthinking remark from someone who really should of known better the reminded me that those who have been blinded by media or too apathetic to care need reminding of a basic simple fact. On top of this the Capitalists of the West also need reminding.

The simple fact missed by most people even those within the Corporations themselves which is Corporations need people more than people need them even in this modern world.

After all the simple truth without people who would buy their goods who would work for them.

Some people will say this is a very simplistic view of the world but usually the most simple definitions of the world are the closest to the real truth. The world is not really complex place and it is only made more complex by people who insist looking for things which are simply not there.

The real fact is we all have the choice to work for these Corporations and if we are brave enough we can make a living outside of these Corporations using alternative methods. After all with the expansion of the internet and rise of instant communication we will need the Corporations less and less to buy stuff or even make a living. People now can go back to running smaller businesses using internet to advertise and sell their wares.

If used right the internet will allow real small businesses and entrepreneurs to thrive once again and allow people the real choice of how they make a living freeing them from the need for the Corporations to buy their goods and make living.

Those who have actually being paying attention to the Music Industry over recent years would of notices a subtle change how bands release and promote their music in so much they use the major Music Corporations less and less. New bands now tend to use the internet to promote themselves and smaller music companies who now tend to promote rather than actually create the records. All helped by the fact that software and equipment needed to produce a record is now within the normal persons price bracket so they can produce records at home. Hence bands really do not need the big Music Corporations any more to create and promote their music hence the Music Corporations importance is slipping now and they are slowly fading into obscurity.

Myself I have not made this jump yet into the future as in the end I have like most people been warn down by these Corporations and Capitalists to a point I am too afraid of the unknown regardless of the fact I know I need to change and I know the world around us is going through a subtle change which will rock our society to it’s foundations!

A Time For Free Thinkers Not Sheep!

Leave a comment

As the media around us batter us with a constant dark picture of the world. That is a constant diet of war, terrorism and disasters tinged with openly right wing agenda almost to a point of promoting racism, homophobia and twisted Christian ethics which do not even resemble the truth ethics of the Christian religion.

All this to keep the masses in the West in line by use of fear if they do not follow the so called masters within the right-wing establishment made up of the top 1% super rich people all this evil will destroy the West and it’s precious society. Regardless the fact it this very establishment which is actually destroying the West with their greed and grab for power at the expense of the masses freedoms and quality of their lives.

With all what is going on it has come time for free thinkers to start to speak out and scream from the roof tops that what is happening in the West is wrong and it will lead to the real destruction of everything from within and not from external forces.

It is time for free thinkers to call for real change in the West as without change it is currently doomed to failure on a massive scale.

It is not time for sheep any more who live under the illusion everything is still all right as one day they will wake up with no freedoms with lives of constant work in servitude to rich few who lives of extreme wealth on the backs of their hard work within a world ravaged by those who use it rather than loved it.

So it is time for free thinkers not sheep!
