I agree with your comments about tax evasion and those who try to insulate themselves being more RESPONSIBLE to the larger society but I do also
worry that there is a culture in the UK which has grown with the current younger generations of having what you want when you want and NOT being told
NO.... I as a child found out that I couldn't have everything I wanted, I also found out that I wasn't the best sportsman in my school (for ref I
was about 3 or 4th quickest) BUT I dealt with it. When I interview people today for sales roles I come across alot who expect everything upfront
without putting in the work first of all. As a rule I employ people on a living salary for a year and if they prove themselves then we ramp up what
they earn. I need them to 'BUY IN' to what our company does before giving them everything....... The more I write here the more irritated I become
with alot of people's attitudes.
I actually put a large part of the blame at the doorstep of celebrity culture and sporting culture.. Footballers have proven in recent weeks to be,
in my mind a pointless distraction for the sheep to follow...... I think you and I have in another thread exchanged comments about the England team
and I think their performance proved me right...!!! Who really cares if they have a chance or not !!! They are an over rewarded distraction for the
sheeple....... I would rather spend my time time learning, reading, doing something to enhance myself THAN WASTE my time watching these
woodwardjnr - I am great believer that if people focuss themselves on what they want to do and FORGET most of the pointless distractions (footballers,
celebrity, buying irrelevant stuff etc etc) then you will leave the masses / sheeple behind and become your own person....
It goes back to being RESPONSIBLE for ones self and others who are in genuine need....
