A growing awareness

My awareness started quite late in life and Margaret Thatcher was PM around my second-to-third decade. Only in recent years has it become clear to me the damage the Tory (Thatcher) policies had done. The rot set in. Comments like "selling off the family silver" were heard, but not really appreciated for what they meant. £Billions have been 'acquired' at public expense. The proof is here that whether Tory or Labour, it's just a label disguising the same monster. Corporate monster takes on a new meaning in the sense of what is at the top. Big business is run by a few small people each with a BIG ego. Directors try to hide from responsibility, but their protection runs deeper. Corporate culpability. Directors (in theory only) take responsibility for the actions of their employees.

This basic tenet is written in law.

Must be written in a book in a dark and dusty place, though.

That nothing is ever done again is an example of 'us' and 'them'.

Imagine Churchill in 'power' at any time other than those war years (WWII). Because of the prevailing circumstances at that time, much was acceptable by comparison to the perceived alternatives. Just bear in mind that propaganda works both ways. Selling the people an idea. Truth doesn't matter because lies are simply the means to an end. The desirable end to the few. The 'them'.

Paranoia?

Maybe, but start asking yourself distasteful questions. The foul tasting truth or sweet lies. Which would be better? The right path is rarely the easiest. The right path is generally more difficult to tread. How shallow are you? How far under the surface are you prepared to dive to find honesty and integrity?

Take a very deep breath as you have to go deeper and deeper as the shit continues to rise.
