I'll start by explaining the point of this thread. Recently I've been having a bit of a bad spell, we're talking about 2-3 weeks here. I relised
this morning what it was that was getting me down; I was just noticing how so many things just seem wrong or unjust at the moment. The amount of
propoganda and hate mongering on television, Afghanistan, Iraq and now the developing situation in Iran. The massive gulf in conditions for the
peoples of the world, we wallow in excess, junk-food, Wide-Screen Tv's and two cars, and there are people in this world so hungry they'll eat bark
in order to stay alive......not to mention our overflowing prisons ( an idea I disagree with on a fundamental level), the degredation of civil
liberties, failing schools and increased social tension....I don't know, it all just seems fairly bleak at the moment with no real hope for
Below are the three things that cause me the most discomfort and anger, the things that cause my bile to rise that little bit higher! I ask that you
contribute your own below.......we could then compile the list and give it to the leaders of the world as a sort of check list on how to sort this
sorry mess out once and for all!!
Thank you for reading mine and look forward to reading your responses.
1. The slightly intraverted, suspicious or guarded nature many people have adopted, as a consequence, either directly or indirectly of the current
climate. Look on the bus or train when you travel to work, most people have their phone out, their Ipod on or they are reading a magazine or paper,
each thing a distraction preventing them from engaging in the most basic of social niceties! Can you guarentee that most peopel would great a warm
smile with one of their own, or would they insead look awkward, unsure what to do with such spontanious interaction??? *....If only everyone were as
friendly as those people I accosted last Saturday at that DnB Rave...*...
2. The level of corruption and the Callous disregard for human life displayed by the governments of both the United States and the United Kingdom.
Although this is in no way indicating that they themselves exclusivly hold this accolade.
3. The shockingly large number of people that know so very little concernign the War on Terror, from its birth up untill now. Only last Friday I was
at a house party and talking to a number of people about 9/11, nothing to deep, just trying to ascertain what there knowledge was as I knew they had
never looked into it with any interest. They had no idea that a building 7 even existed, let alone that it was brought down on the same day. They new
nothing of the massive insurance claim. The collection and 'evacuation' of the Bin Laden family, or even that Bin Laden was a Cia operative for many
years! All of this shocked them, they even went as far as to look on the internet at the time to authenticte my claims, and when proved corrct, they
were left truly dumb-founded! It was like the wool had been lifted. The most remarkable thing tho, was that they all stated how incredable it was that
the mainstream media had not picked up more ferociously on these topics. Incredable indeed!!! I wonder how many people are this ignorant to the facts,
I fear it could even be as high as almost 90%!!
Your turn guy's, vent away......................
