I’m sure I wrote a post a while ago about how I was going to re commit myself to writing on here….. I could probably just copy and paste that here and get ready to go again. Mind you in fairness to me, last year saw a curveball that I did not anticipate. I met a special person and we are very happy together. That took precedent, and it still does.
Moving on into 2019 I still find myself with a lot to say, I perhaps don’t need to use this blog as valve like I have in the past, but there are many things that I see in the world that I want to have my say on.
I’ll be honest I haven’t planned anything before sitting to write this, so we could well be about to go on a journey that goes everywhere and nowhere at the same time.
This year 2019 is going to see a huge amount of unrest, it will see the beginning of the US election cycle, and closer to home it will see the end of the Brexit process. I can’t do much about either of those things but what worries me is that they will most likely bring those that like to “other” people, seeking to look for those that are not cut from a very particular cloth and make life unliveable for them i’e different Race, Gender, Age, Sexuality, mental health. It’s all still there and it is becoming even more polarised and the lines being drawn even more complex.
Today the army released a recruitment campaign for Me Me Me Millennials, Class Clowns, Binge Gamers, Phone Zombies, Snow Flakes and Selfie Addicts or people as they are otherwise known.
It’s only an add campaign, but it shows how young people are thought of, the world has changed but we will take you in spite of that. How are we supposed to come together as a society, when the divide between people is so tangible and it is regularly fired up?
James O’Brien and Owen Jones getting into it over the medias treatment of Corbyn, casting O’brien as a tory supporter because he has a different expectation of Corbyn…. and on and on and on. Really these 2 should be on the same side, but they can’t even decide what that side is.
It is all so frustrating, so that’s me for now at least. I am going to look at these divisive arguments and see if I cant find a reason for us to come together. That seems something worth hoping for right?
