Speak your mind...

.... If you're of a brown complexion and/you just happen to be a Muslim, apparently it's a crime! What it is is institutionalized racism, you just have to turn on your TV- it's everywhere! It's in " popular TV show like " Homeland" which is just pure propaganda, but, you see you have to have a degree of intelligence to see this, and well must people have trouble separating fact from fiction. And the most disturbing part is that the government and the media are fostering this fear and speculation in the society, and it is completely irresponsible! Just look at the recent new, a medical student tweeted something that is fairly obvious if you watch the news but because he happened to be Muslim he was arrested as a terror suspect. Does anyone else feel a little concerned about where this is heading? What are they going to have next- The Thought Police?!

Education....

..... Is vital for the development and survival of a society.

The selfish society...

….. Is it really something to aspire to? Does it make you a happier person? The answer to both these questions is “no”, yet countries like the US and UK have foster a climate based on what’s good for the individual since the days of Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan and are either of these countries look like they are doing well? And I answer… NO! How is it even remotely good for an individual to think pure about themselves? How would a society even function? And is it a society that people what to be part of?

Yet the supposed civilized countries are trying to push this kind of thinking onto everyone. Are we really going to listen to these people that have put profit over a person’s health, education, their ability to get from one place to another and even the welfare system, a system that is supposed to help the most vulnerable people in the society? Do we really want to be a world where it is normal to let people die just because they can’t pay the bill?

 Neoliberalism has ruined the west, the financial crisis of 08 didn’t just happen overnight, it happened through the deregulation of corporations and banks and by squeezing the middle class dry by slowly and methodically taking away their ability to be heard. Trade Unions have lost their ability to make any kind of significant change that would benefit the working Joe, the workplace has become more about screwing each other over and making sure they mess up than helping each other, this is in no small part to the "people upstairs" that have made it so we believe that helping people is a sign of weakness.The powers that be have given big business more power to do whatever they have to do in order to get more profit, and if that means they have to sacrifice quality and YOUR safety..so be it! Neoliberalism is basically just another word for fascism.

I know people don’t want to hear it but it’s true, when your own government cares about the well- being of a multi- million pound company over it’s own citizens, when a government would rather have the people work to death than invest in their health and well- being.. well, that’s exactly where we are. These countries keep preaching that this is the only way- only way for them to make a shed load of cash maybe but not for us to live happy and fulfilled lives. The UK and US Governments are emblematic of the selfish society, why can’t we be more like the Danes that have been proven to be the happiest society- and why? Because they have a Social Democratic government.

Money over Mankind?

Again there was a protest march in London with thousands people that doesn't get the air time on mainstream media that it deserves. People all over the world are trying to get a message out to the people and the message is that there is a greater threat to mankind than ISIL and it is Climate Change. Whether you want to believe it or not, it is our fault it is happening so fast and we will not be able to stop it all we can do is try to put a band aid on it, but the first thing that we still have to do is to convince some people that we have a problem!

As sad and angry that it makes me there are still people who doubt that it is a bad thing!(mostly Americans and Fox so called news!) The media has a lot to do with this perception and you know why???? Because many of them are owned by big oil, so they are not exactly going to bad mouth the people who are paying their wages! It saddens me when the need for corporate profits is valued over our survival. Some very naive people may claim that it natural for some places to have violent storms while other places are suffering from droughts and forest fires, it may be natural to have them but the sheer amount is extreme and it is happening far to quickly for us to adapt.

The people who bemoan that it is natural I would tell them that growing old and getting wrinkles is "natural", so why do they spend all there time and money trying to stop that, but above all... why do the corporation spend millions in this industry? The very simple answer is money. There is more money to be made in trying to keep us looking young than trying to save the planet.

The really sad thing is that the poorer countries will suffer the brunt of it. low lying countries like Bangladesh etc especially from rising sea levels. And what do you think droughts will do to all the crops?? We will face having to pay a higher and higher amount for the most basic items. People watch too many movies, they think it will be dramatic and happen immediately, will will start to die off slowly because we can't afford to heat our homes or buy food and anyone who has been paying attention will see the amount of storms and unpredictable weather has been going on for at least the last 10-15 years.

The sad thing is, that until it affects the very rich ( the tory toffs!) the rest of us will be forced to suffer the affects of Climate Change. And just because it may be nice and warm where you are now, doesn't mean it's not happening and that's also why it's called GLOBAL WARMING!

Why is it that when the bankers committed huge amounts of fraud ( and are still!) they get a government handout ASAP but when the people are ultimately going to suffer they have no money to give, if anything they have actually been cutting public funding for the last 30 years! That should tell you how much of a priority the people are to the government, they just care about one thing...MONEY and doesn't that mean this society is less of a democracy and is leaning more to Fascism??
