Aspiration - Hope or Ambition
A word bandied by politicians these days to try and protect themselves from caring enough to do anything about anything. They want you to aspire for things, to want to work hard to gain the things that they just had given to them, most of them are already very wealthy, some may say I had to work hard for what I have, but we all know their interpretation of working hard is a lot different to the normal ordinary workers idea of working hard.
They want you to aspire to things that are an impossible dream, what they really want more than anything is you to just work hard, that is all work hard and do as you are told. Their wealth and privilege depends on willing slaves working hard to increase their wealth and privilege. They throw the odd bone here and there to placate the dream, a lottery win etc, but its always been about protection of their own wealth and well being, nothing more, they have never cared about us, they just care about themselves. All of them, every party, every political pundit, journalist every one of them, protecting their little club from the dirty masses.
Is it just me who has the feeling WWIII is closer than we are being told? Two words, North Korea :(
I don’t think anyone who starts out writing a blog ever expects to have anyone else write it for them, specially if the blog is as random and hit and miss as this one, but sometimes it would be nice to have someone else do it for a change. Well the new Royal Charter for press legislation, introduced after Levison seems to make it clear that a sole blogger must remain a sole blogger or else your a newspaper. Would make sense if it wasn’t so farcical.
What that also means is, that if you have a facebook group or fan page you also are liable if you are not a sole admin. So if you have a group beware as you are now a target for the UK courts. A mad state of affairs all around.
Was fun while it lasted, not sure how much longer I can continue to post opinions on this blog. Here is why. http://www.openrightsgroup.org/blog/2013/royal-charter-or-star-chamber-for-stars
I know none of you care, but wait and see now they have the powers to shut you up permanently.
I hereby rename BBC morning tv to “We’re considerably richer than Yow” TV.
Checked my email this morning and seem to have had 5 emails from Apple telling me they released iphone 5… Sounds like a cry of desperation to me. Sorry guys, don’t support slavers.
A billionaire in Australia thinks that Africans work for $2 a day because they must like it. Well she didn’t actually say that, but I think what she said sort of implies it. She thinks Australia would be more competitive if workers were paid less like Africans! The Africans she is talking about are paid less because her rich capitalist friends are treating them like their own fucking personal slaves.
These people live in their elite little bubbles, we need to confiscate all their money and make them live in reality for a few years. All of them, the world would be a better place if we stopped billionaires from being billionaires. Cap earnings to 100 million. All the excess goes to tax, or paying better wages for the people who actually do the work that earns these rich fuckwits their personal fortunes. They use the backs of the working poor to act like they own everything, but forget who it ACTUALLY is that got them rich in the first place.
I use a few social media sites. I read more these days than I actually post, mainly because they are populated mostly with social media dicks. Its getting very very old all of the correcting of every little misspelled word, every grammar correction, every little attack on someones way of life. These people are the vermin, the bullies, it used to be a nice place to be, online, but its become shit. Full of shit. It used to be said if you can’t say something nice don’t say it. Now its changed to, if you can’t say something nice post it to a social media site.
If your middle class its great to throw your uptight, up yourself, self loaving at a few poorer members of society who cannot spell as well as you, or speak as well as you, or spend their cash on negative equity. Just hope that it makes you feel better about yourself while you will down another anti depressant with your fifth glass of vodka of the day.
Trying to be positive in this cesspit of bullies and sad depressants if almost impossible, so its probably best to not get involved with it all, just keep away and let them all drink and drug themselves into death, and leave the online space for more reasonable people.
I’ve worked with a lot of people over the years that have been able to sound like they know what they are talking about. They know the lingo, the right words to sound convincing. Problem starts when you want them to actually do something. I see a lot of people posting in social media that I just know are those kind of people. Experts in the right words, but most probably in reality could not even tie their shoe laces. Sad really.
When I watch the media watching countries transforming from despots to so called democracies I often wonder if the media realises how long democracy took to form in our own countries. It took years. Here in the UK for instance I’d say it was about the 40′s, maybe even later. America did not even let Black people ride on any seat on buses, yet the media forgets all this, democracy must be easy, we have it everyone else should.
If your a country over throwing a dictator, surely finding your way, deciding your own culture, deciding rules is going to take years. It did for us, why not for them, we are talking decades and centuries here, not months. Give them a chance to understand what freedom means. I always liked the phrase, just because you can does not mean you should, if more people used this as a guide we would have a better world. Ignore the media, they know jack shit.
