Feelings of greed and envy keep the people fighting and failing to reach fulfilment, because their life isn’t like the life they have been sold and told they could have. Fear causes failure; people are failing to see what is in front of their eyes because they fear the unknown. It’s always been this way, there is no other way. No there isn’t if people don’t look for one! They might be happy living with the shit that’s being created, but I’m sick of it all and getting sicker each day with the sickness that keeps spreading the endless consumption of things and stuff the continuous upgrading of the goods, faster is better small is the new large, but it’s the same old shit no matter how much it sparkles, on the neon hoardings and the glossy magazine pages.
We need to look to our brothers and sisters across the world fighting for freedoms we take for granted and then give away to the state. The people on the streets with their flags, covered faces and firebombs. In Greece the birthplace of democracy, were the people are being made to pay and pay for their politicians failings. This surely is a sign that their neo liberal globalised Western Capitalist democracy is a failing project, it cannot go on for much longer. Their New Europe parade is just a charade the rich countries stay rich and the poor countries stay poor and in debt to the rich nations.
Then there’s Africa….The Birth place of human life, a place that along with the Far East made Europe and America rich from slaves, minerals and textiles. Parts of Africa are dying a slow death through drought, famine and civil war, they have been for decades. The world watches as it always has with its charity feeding corrupt dictators, it’ll take more than a Band Aid to heal the wounds.
