Not long ago I turned 50, and even more recently, I turned 56, and that was a bastard! I can see myself, in my mind's eye, a young teen, wondering
what I'd be doing when I reached 50 years of age? Back then I was full of the joys of a spring lamb, and excited at being alive. Now, that excitement
has waned somewhat, because if there is one thing that life has taught me, is that the most treacherous and abusive species on this planet...is
The fact is, we are separated by mindset and culture and the ideologies they raise that we follow. Nothing else separates us, except our mental lives.
You look around this ATS website, at all the threads and the postings and you will see that it all reduces down to the three things I have mentioned,
and then look around the world (via the internet) and see the effects. No one, not a single individual is spared. For me, the years haven't sped up,
they have shrunk. The years no longer range with the same latitude as they did when I was younger.
It seemed that when I was young, I always believed that societal wrongs had the time to be made right, but if anything, things have been made
deliberately worse. Of course, I am writing in a general sense, because it is not easy to draw together each and every single thread of discontent and
unease at the way the world has been steered, where a new law is being rolled out that demands mandatory conformity to the authority of someone else's
idea and agenda.
I live in the UK, born and bred, and in a couple of months time, I will be kissing the ass of my country goodbye, because it will be taken from me.
Everything I grew up with will be gone and assimilated into the EU agenda and ultimately forgotten. It is irrelevant what the right ideology for it is
as the issue is already decided. You can tell by the way the debate is being staged, and the ratio of the voices being heard for the EU and against
it, something like 9:2 in the media. There are many voices against the EU, but the thinly-veiled threats that have been publicly declared in the media
on the British people should they have the audacity to even contemplate leaving the EU, is staggering. There is no debate, it's an instruction with
menace. The British people will be allowed their referendum vote, but no way will they be allowed to decide the outcome.
So, what's all this got to do with age? Well, for me personally, it's an issue about an ideology being forced on me. One I will never accept. Not
because I must be some kind of little Englander, but because the ideology and the agenda is utterly wrong and damaging, and it is theft! I believe we
should all join together eventually, but not for this corporate ideological agenda, but for humanitarian reasons, and because in our hearts and minds
we want to, and this kind of reason is many decades away.
Each of you, in whatever country you hail from, are as much a victim as I am, but the sense of victim-hood simply hasn't reached you yet. The changes
to cause you immediate worry are not yet with you, they are with others, such as myself, and so you need not be concerned (or maybe you should?). As a
teen, I did not think I would ever live to see my country fall, not to some military outcome, because I knew that would not happen, no...my country is
going to fall because the people will vote for it to do so, fearing to vote any other way. They will vote away the soul of their country and history
will hate them for it, and rightly condemn them as cowards!
So, here I am, edging into my twilight years and having to become a 'citizen of conformity and compliance', and with my individuality no longer
relevant to my societal existence. My age is my good fortune, as it is for those of you also edging into your twilight years, because we will only get
a brief and bitter taste of what is to come.
