SOME THOUGHTS FROM THE SILENCE.
Been on a bit of a downer for the last few weeks, hence the lack of posts, but I've just started writing some random shit down recently.
The nights have started to draw in streets and alleyways are engulfed in darkness cos the council have turned down the lights to save money. Fuel poverty as energy prices rise.
Turn on the TV and across the globe countries go from crisis to crisis. while the Western world still hold onto the capitalist dream of globalisation.
From civil wars in Africa that fuel the worlds wireless mobile phone addiction to chemical attacks in Syria and the news that the Red Cross are gonna be providing food parcels to Britain’s poor and needy this Christmas. This is not good. With so much wealth in the pockets of so few and others are starving....Eat the rich! Rob their cake! Don't buy the products and try to live their dream while others exist in a nightmare.
The US Government has shut down; such has been the cost of their decades of warmongering and endless space exploration McRocket Man looking for new frontiers to exploit both on earth and out in space.... ….
Two days off the wheel, and just like a hamster I'm gonna curl up and do fuck all! The phone rings, I nearly answer it as if I was at work....need a break get a way from it all. Modern life isn't rubbish, it's mundane, or is that just my life, where everything becomes a routine, as much as I love doing this blog sometimes it's hard to get enthusiastic about stuff, or summon up the energy to even think.
Frustration....freedom denied by chains that bind. Snap the shackles, raise an arm and a fist of fury. Pull down the blindfold take a look around remove the gag from your mouth and shout NO!
We need to take steps into the unknown, into the darkness. We are the light at the end of the tunnel. Just as we have made our own prisons, we can escape from them.
“I stood among them, but not of them, in a shroud of thoughts which were not their thoughts.” - Lord Byron.
All quite on the Eastern Front as the worlds biggest warmongers America and Russia decide who became the peacemaker in the Syrian chemical weapons crisis. When the reporting stops, that's the time to think I wonder what the fuck they are up to? What deals have been struck as compromises are bought and sold around tables of power.
Dunno what's worse? working in the private sector making the bosses money, or working in the public sector watching the managers waste our money!
Migrants drown as they try to reach the West...Turn around there's nothing to see here. People with nothing want something while people with everything think they are something, when really they are nothing. Cut 'em and they bleed just like the rest of us.
The ship of fools is sinking.
The times they have a changed! For the first time in a hundred years the next generation is gonna be financially worse off than the previous one, or perhaps people have developed higher expectations and demands in the instant success/failure consumer society they are living in than previous generations. There is also no incentive to save. Interest rates are low to both the borrower and the saver, thing is the more you save the less interest you receive on your savings. It's all about spend, spend, spend! People used to save for a rainy day, i.e. for when times got tough, now they just save to spend on a rainy day and carry on regardless with no thought for the future.
Kissing China's arse to get more cash into the coffers of Ukplc. Forget human rights records or the sweatshop economy. It's all about clothing the Western consumer army in cheap clothes and arming it with cheap goods.
Who's covering the cost for the hunt for Madeline McCann? Cos I don't see why the taxpayer should cover the cost of the parents irresponsibility! If they were a family from a council estate who left their kid alone when they went down the pub, they'd have been crucified in the media and by the public. How many other families have had their children abducted, and have they received as much support from the state as the family McCann have?
A sign of the times, or a sigh of things to come? Food-banks in a nation starved of goodness but full of bigots and bullshit.
