Friends and readers.
The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need people who can dream of things that never were.
The meaningless mumblings of party politicians about the medicine that the citizens of this nation need to take in order that the problems of the nation can be cured, problems we may add that were caused by the greed and stupidity of the few backed by the incompetence and shared greed of those we elect to look after the nations assets, is mindless as it is the easy route out of a massive problem.
Suffer the poor and vulnerable and the children to follow as the worlds economies adjust to the new economic realities, realities that are forced upon us by those who colluded with the guilty, and are now rapidly making their populations pay the price of greed which has no parallel. The headless chickens who now tell us that we must face years of austerity, is simply something to say in place of, we fucked up and you lot are going to pay the cost of it all.
Have the guilty been punished? No anything but. Have the guilty owned up to their crimes? No and won’t. Is there any opposition to this policy of right wing economic genocide on those least protected? Not that you would notice. And it’s no use those that think they are immune or ignore the suffering that many are going through and that many more will. Those that think their fat salaries and fatter pension schemes protect them are but living in a fools paradise.
Yes in the short term you can close your curtains and lock your gates, and kid yourself on that nothing has changed, but we need a population working and paying their taxes and at ease with themselves otherwise we become more divided than we clearly already are. To bring it home clearly to those that don’t get it or choose not to, let’s make it easy for you. The price of a loaf of bread for the deprived communities in and around North Edinburgh, is the same for our more well heeled neighbours of the rose petalled suburban delights of Barton, Crammond, Ravelston and of course Murrayfield.
We bear no malice to these people but this is the ignorance of privilege, where conversations consist of, ‘ Of course there are plenty of Jobs’ ‘what poverty are they talking about’ and more shit just like that. The plenty of jobs mirage is put about by an illusion of persuasion. If you say something long enough it starts to be believed. The poverty of heating or eating is here right now, and not one jot of interest from those greedy utility companies, backed by the Government, powerless and gutless to do anything about it.
And what do these parasitic vultures who operate these killing machines that disguise themselves as power distributing companies offer as an excuse ” we need to invest in the infrastructure” complete bullshit and lies. Blame this, blame that but the profits still continue to roll in. This pompous condescending it’s my ball so you will do what I want mentality seems to be in large quantities within these utility companies, and their so called senior employees past and present
Gutless spineless jobsworth fatheads backed by their mirror images in government, while the rest of us pick up the tab. The gangsters that sold off these assets in the first place are guilty of crimes against the nation. Now our attention is being distracted by the con of Xmas, more money more expense more misery despite what the adverts tell us. Yet shortly after this one day in the year when we are supposed to spend money we really cannot afford, the fuel bills will come through the letter box and the threats that come with them should we be unable to pay them which many will.
Our society is massively divided, and the gap continues to grow as do those caught in the poverty trap. Our services continue to be cut, our wages continue to fall behind price increases, real jobs are few and far between, and our youngsters are unaware of the world around them, many having never read a book or know what’s going on outside their own world, and are the next generation of victims, with no knowledge of how to combat that.
So we hope our well heeled and just as ignorant neighbours enjoy their comfy cushioned lives and continue to enjoy what luxuries they have. We would like to bring this post to a close with a thought we have, you may find it something to think about.
IF I SHOULD DIE, I HAVE LEFT NO IMMORTAL WORK BEHIND ME- NOTHING TO MAKE MY FRIENDS PROUD OF MY MEMORY, BUT I HAVE LOVED THE PRINCIPLE OF BEAUTY IN ALL THINGS, AND IF I HAD TIME I WOULD HAVE MADE MYSELF REMEMBERED.
