In a world seemingly gone crazy, it’s become a chore to remain 'strong and stable' and see many items with clarity. We have emerged, in the flick of an eye, into times of extreme leadership - to the point of a ‘virtual’ dictator-ism.
What we thought was over there, is actually hovering uncomfortably over here. And unless we take swift decisive action, as a populace collectively, we are in circumstances that could allow the freedom that we have taken so long to achieve, rapidly disappear.
Since Brexit has been triggered, and a potential trade deal looming between the USA and UK, our independence seems uncertain. The National Grid has been flogged off already with speculation the NHS will be sold to the highest bidder. Are we in danger of becoming just another suburb of America, ironically when we have just stepped out of being a suburb of Europe?
Our leaders and governing bodies have increasingly adopted the identity of Queens and Kings, with apparently no reality checks on themselves or their courtiers. It’s all become rather ‘Monty Python’ in a medieval way. Political figure’s ability to spin agendas and lies, is out of control, and then just not face the music; With a stream of fabrications, U turns, fake and biased news being delivered from behind hollowed eyes and no responsibility assumed. It’s enough to leave any mildly sane person in disbelief.
The window of opportunity is diminishing – and at this point in history we are in need to resume more control as the people, with less unconditional control for society’s assassins.
