What is the UK to do with its generation of delinquents? It’s like on a universal scale they have inherited the teenagers of the planet. And most of those teenagers are parents. I hope those Lib Dems are skilled in the art of parenting. We needn’t ask the Conservatives. Their children are not a common part of the real world. I would say the UK faces a major crisis. How to bring up a bunch of defunct, emotionally bankrupt yobs? That’s hard to do when they have no idea what a family is. That means there is an abundant lack of family values and for a society, that is a big problem. There is a generation of takers the UK needs to re-educate, and soon. How difficult is it to confer family values upon those who have no concept of such? It is very difficult. But it is not impossible. A family does not have to be traditional in order to be a family. Family, like Christmas, is a construct. It can be what you need it to be, what you want of a ‘family’, of a ‘Christmas’. All these names have duties, jobs to do, in our worlds. How we put them to work depends on how we understand the terms. People who come from broken homes, or no homes, will be different. Who will they be? Who are you to other people? How does your mouth speak about other people? That is an important indication of what kind of a person you are. For example, if you are an unkind person you will know. You cannot hide your unkindness from yourself. Remember your unkindness will sound as ugly to the ears of your listener as it does to you. If your unkindness sounds powerful to you, you need to reassess your understanding of intimidation. If you enjoy intimidating, you are a bully. If you choose to feel good about assassinating another’s character then you need to address your self-esteem. You are insecure. Realise that your criticism is as much for your own ears as it is for the ears of your listener. Also, try whatever you like, you cannot avoid facing your own short-comings. They affect your every day. It is important in life to realise what it is that you are – and what it is that you are not. What you are not is nothing to be afraid of. It is how it is. When you realise what you are not you can modify your goals and dreams. You can refine your own process and build yourself into a better human being.
If you are not a kind person, don’t pretend for the sake of your face that you are. Saving your reputation for your own sake is a total waste of time, never mind saving it for the sake of others who judge. Always check who it is that judges you before you take their judgement to heart. If they do not know who you are, pay them little attention. How can a person have a sensible opinion on something they have never understood? Either make yourself known or ignore the criticism. There is no point sitting in the corner crying about something that is under your control. Don’t waste your energy on others’ negative projections, prides, or egos. Negative voices are noise. Just try to understand that for everyone it is nearly impossible not to judge. Be aware. We judge ourselves all the time and we judge others by our expectations of ourselves.
How can the UK solve its problems? It can face up to them first of all. That stiff upper lip needs to crack a humble smile. Those myriad repressions need addressing. That attitude of resenting success needs adjusting. It can start by accepting its failing infrastructure – whatever the reason for it. It can stop rewarding the benefit parasites with money that would be better spent on university grants to an ambitious youth. If they had any brains they would wean their dependents off their ‘wages’ and feed said money back into their (once great) education system – which is also falling apart. Another thing – Britain can stop behaving as if it still controlled all the tea fields and rice paddies on the planet. The Empire is long-gone, her reign is over. I wonder why the colonialists are such hard-core hangers on? Their attitude is out-dated, their behaviour archaic. How many colonial genes pollute the DNA of the inheritors of Great Britain? The question to ask is how can we go forwards unless these people – the collective – and these places, take accountability for their past, their future?
Drop the idea that the world owes you a living, Britain. Your future is what you have made it.
