National Life Sucks.
Though nothing new ever occurs it still does not mitigate the state of our lives in this so called modern world.
Raedwald posts most eloquently this morning and I would like to add my tuppence worth.
Austerity and pessimism abound. As the deluded hubris of the political and corporate moronic greed dominates, my optimism, for better things to develop, hits rock bottom. The latest ghastly mistake that is HS2 serves only to remind me of the EU's dominant grip of totalitarian awfulness. This project, just as all others under Government largesse to their cronies will be way over budget. I suggest that the £32 billion will treble through unseen costs and bungs.
Furthermore we have the unedifying spectacle of The EU, regardless of the catastrophic debt and failure it wreaks upon us, it remains all powerful. As the Greek people feel the unnecessary hardship their membership causes they are just a blueprint of what's to come. Just as public opinion is ignored on capital punishment, immigration and many other impactful failures of the ruling classes, so the march towards this Orwellian prediction continues.
The Occupy movement has been ridiculed and vilified, descending into directionless chaos. The Arab spring has turned into a stew of Islamic mayhem and corruption reigns supreme. The unwinnable war in Afghanistan drags on as tainted by inaction by politicians as it is blighted by death and destruction.
How puerile and unheard are our voices. How depressing to watch daily the very people behind our travail strut their stuff with a pompous uncaring superiority. Their luxurious life styles are immune from the causes and effects demanded by the very same failings that condemn millions to no more than an existence.
I hate my pessimism. I so long to write of a Churchillian figure capable of showing there might be a better way. A leader totally attttuned to the resentment post war politicians, mainly socialists, have created. I long for someone in power to shout and fight against the Bilderberger drive towards a Global Government. One which will consume us all into even greater slavery. Automatons stripped of any soul or humanity. That vision is one of a living hell.
