Once again Christmas looms on the horizon with all the wonderful shoppers getting stressed over shopping, family and arrangements for Christmas. The biggest irony being they really have to do none of it and only do it because they are expected to do it.

So work is constant stream of people worrying and irritated over something which frankly over the years has lost it meaning to the people involved though I still remember some of what it means. Over my life time Christmas has stopped being a religious festival and commercial buy feast to a time when families, friends and people get together to enjoy each others company both drinking, eating and television watch to access.

It has become a shining light in the bleak winter and world when we can forget all our troubles so all the present side and gross commercialism for me has no real meaning any more and a bastion of those who hide behind it because they simply have no real idea how to be a human being in the first place.

My change of attitude over Christmas has meant I have started to enjoy Christmas again with my partner, dogs and those of my family I really get on with. I now remember it is thought that counts not amount or size of presents and being with people who you love at Christmas is far more important than any present.

So those of you out there who see Christmas the same way as myself have a Happy Christmas as such thoughts being back the magic of Christmas for us.

It still makes me laugh that people still believe in power of Corporate speak on others believing it actually inspires people to do better.

It may because I am cynical nowadays but it sounds so hollow to me in our modern world especially it is a part of a modern Western Capitalism which has grown tired and ineffective.

People who still use it have not noticed that a growing number of people around them do not believe in the very establishment the corporations are part of any more.

Personally I have to try to not laugh at them as unlike the people who use it I look forward to a better more open world where people treat people as people not as cogs in a faceless meaningless corporation.

Time to Call a Spade a Spade!

Posted: 22 November, 2016 in Comment, Life, politics

An article in one of the more progressive newspaper here in the United Kingdom made a very good point about the extreme right wing which making an reappearance around the world especially in Europe and the United Kingdom.

It basically said it is time to stop calling the various groups of nationalists, White Supremacist, extreme right wing and the such in West but call them by their proper name used now some 60 years ago that is Nazis.

As that word best describes their bigoted, xenophobic and fear based politics. It is high time we used that word again to describe them and their politics.

Add to this all the groups are basically the same that is they have the same aims to promote their twisted form of nationalism and patriotism, allow a small elite to prosper and to blame all their ills on one group which in the modern world is the Muslims rather than take responsibility for them themselves. All this much as in 1930s Germany and Europe though then the targets were Jews and Slovaks.

As I have said it is time to call a spade a spade and call these people what they truly are which is Nazis and not shy way from that word any more!

Back to the Past!

Posted: 22 November, 2016 in Comment, Life, United Kingdom, United States

As rest of the world outside of United Kingdom and United States starts to move forward again both socially and technologically both the United Kingdom and United states are going backwards and becoming backwater countries who will be only remembered fondly by few old people!

It getting to a point that I am definitely starting to believe our Western form of Capitalism simply does not work in so much it does not support free markets, innovation or allows both technology or society to move forward.

It is wholly geared to maintain the wealth of a elite few at the expense of 99% even itself that is it is a self destructive system which is doomed to fail in a spectacular way some time soon.

Worse of all it puts up a show of smoke and mirrors to fool everyone it is benefiting everyone, society even the economy and people fall for it every day regardless of the fact with little digging they soon realise things are falling apart around them.

It is not that I am against capitalism as when it is done right, fairly with real morality and real honesty it can benefit everyone not the few plus it can encourage growth and innovation both in society and technology.

But when you allow immorality, dishonesty and greed into capitalism you end up with something which will destroy the very thing it’s trying to build. The thing is the 1% may get richer but their short-sightedness and greed will eventually lead to their own destruction and leave them even less than 99% they oppressed as they cannot eat their money in a world where it has lost it meaning.

Auschwitz: The Evil of Man!

Posted: 14 November, 2016 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?

Talking Peace is Not Appeasement!

Posted: 14 November, 2016 in Comment, Life

What really annoys me both here in the United Kingdom and United States is the right-wing attitude that talking peace means you are weak and appeasing an enemy. All this backed up by the right-wing media which hammers this message home to those gullible people among our societies.

I have to point out going to war and becoming angry are very easy things to do as it takes little real intelligence to take such actions. Such actions are not of the strong or humane people but the actions of weak and insecure people.

It takes far more strength of character and being a real human being to sit around a table peacefully to thrash out the issues which caused the conflict in the first place. In the end it is far more rewarding for both parties even if the path to the resolution is a stormy one.

War should always be the last option not the first as the current governments leaders of the United Kingdom and United States think.
