Nice Comment

Correction for part one

None of this will ever achieved whilst ever you hand your control of your Sovereign power that resides only within you to someone else to do your thinking for you under the guise of governing your Society.

That is what I get for not doing a proper proof read.

Comment was by Davy on August 16, 2022 at 11:52am

Part two

But how you say?

By mastering your emotions, mastering your passions, mastering your desires that effing simple.

Until you do so stop your beefing, bellyaching, bleating, carping, caterwauling, complaining, crabbing, croaking, fussing, griping, grizzling, grouching, grousing, growling, grumbling, grumping, hollering, inveighing, keening, kicking, kvetching, maundering moaning, murmuring, muttering, nagging, repining, screaming, squawking, squealing, wailing, whimpering, whingeing, whining, yammering, yawping, yowling about how things are as they are not going to get any better till you do that simple exercise of SELF CONTROL.

In your lack of self control caused by your lack of mastership of your emotion, your passions, your desires you are giving tacit approval for and complicit in domestic violence, community violence, blood-shedding wars. Why you cannot live peacefully with your neighbours nor live in a peaceful caring community. It is why you cannot stop the corruption within your community nor the rorts committed by your so called politicians. Why you have leaders that lack integrity, openness and upright honesty. It is why you cannot live as you see fit but merely exist. Why the only ones with unprejudiced access to your Society’s collective resources all belong to the upper echelons of your unequal Society but not your echelon. You are servile till you do

SO WHAT ARE YA GONNA DO ABOUT IT?

Comment was by Davy on August 16, 2022 at 11:52am

Just a little light reading but may hap it will give you food for thought. In two parts due to restrictions

No Control Makes for

Servility!

Want to stop domestic violence Take Control.

Want to end community violence Take Control.

Want to end the bloodshed of War Take Control.

Want to live peacefully besides your neighbour Take Control.

Want to live in a peaceful caring community Take Control.

Want to end corruption in the Community Take Control.

Want to end rorts perpetrated by politicians Take Control.

Want leaders with Integrity, openness and Honesty Take Control.

Want to live your life and not just merely exist Take Control.

Want equal and unprejudiced access to the collective resources of your Society Take Control.

Want to achieve all the foregoing then all you have to do is Take Control.

None of this will ever achieved whilst ever you hand your control of your Sovereign power that resides only within you to do your thinking for you under the guise of governing your Society.

When are you going to realise that you are Society and co-operation is way far better than competition within a Society.

So when in flamin’ Hades are you going wrest back your Sovereign power?

I'm not sure; people tend to see the situation they remember from their youth as normal and see the changes they witness in their lifetime as questionable. Is it this subjective way of thinking or are we in a real collaps? Time will tell, nut I agree that the rich will get richer - unless we do something about it.

Comment was by Kurt Neuleuf on August 16, 2022 at 1:43am

I fear Davy is right, Civilisation as we know is rapidly collapsing. I get the feeling that by 2025 we will no longer have any more doubts.

What the future will look like???

Who has a functioning, accurate crystal ball?

Any Astrologers care to make a prediction?

I have one certainty/ prediction:-the rich will get richer and the poor get screwed.

As has been the case all through known history in all cultures in all times.

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on August 15, 2022 at 11:24pm

As long as there are classes there will be class conflicts especially when the upper classes exploit the rest of us. I for one have spent my adult life fighting that good fight. 

Comment was by Ian Mason on August 15, 2022 at 11:03pm

Agreed, Davy. The internal conflicts are always fatal to class societies.

Comment was by Mrs.B on August 15, 2022 at 1:45pm

Exactly the same here, Kurt. We've had several disastrous fire seasons, as well as floods.....no better responses.

Comment was by Davy on August 15, 2022 at 12:07pm

Ian what you are witnessing is the reasons why cultures that form civilisations based upon Inequality supported by privileges and entitlements fail and fall in to sands of time. 
Just wondering how much time is left for this global civilisation before it to falls in to the sands of time.

Maybe half generation or may hap a generation only time will answer that question.

Comment was by Ian Mason on August 15, 2022 at 8:23am

Extreme weather but mediocre government and inadequate responses. Nobody wants to be bold, except when it comes to cutting taxation on the richest. Every bloody politician is falling over their selves to do that.
