They……

They are armies, they are bullies

They fight wars, they are terrorists

They persecute, they are gangs

They repress, oppress, enslave

They are armies, they are bullies

They fight wars, they are terrorists

They persecute, they are gangs

They repress, oppress, enslave

They are power, relentless and ruthless

They are destroyers without empathy

Who are They?

Who are We?

The Price of Freedom?

How did I end up here? In a 50ft x 50ft box, all alone with no-one to talk to? I know I shouldn’t complain because I have everything I need; I receive meals three times a day, I have my work, I have machines to exercise, my computer to record my thoughts, books to read and I know that I am completely safe. There is no fear in my world because I know that I cannot be harmed, physically, mentally or emotionally but I am so desperately lonely. I don’t know exactly why these feelings started in me because this is the norm, it’s been my reality for as long as I can remember; I was born here…..

There is no fear in my world because I know that I cannot be harmed, physically, mentally or emotionally but I am so desperately lonely. I don’t know exactly why these feelings started in me because this is the norm, it’s been my reality for as long as I can remember; I was born here…..

It’s been drilled into me, every day, that this is the best possible life that a human being can have and I know that’s the case because I’ve watched the history files. There used to be something called ‘hate’; I’m not sure I really understand the concept but I’ve seen the damage that was done because of it. The Council memo files tell us that, many years ago, people could ‘talk’ to one another on their computers.  They searched online for people who had the same thoughts and ideas and then, when they had established themselves within a certain ‘group’ (I believe this to be a collection of individuals but that’s not clear from the memos) they would exchange ‘hate’ with members of other groups.

hate-speechThe Councils at the time (I believe they were called Governments) introduced rules to try to stop this from happening, this ‘hate speech’. They created punishments for groups who said bad things about another group based on their colour or their religion (I’m sorry but I can’t tell you what this is; the word is used in the memos but there is no explanation with it). The rulers thought that these punishments would stop the ‘hate’ but it did not because it did not apply to all groups. There were many who protested because they had felt hurt by words themselves but the ones that had used them were not punished. More and more groups were protected over time as the ‘Governments’ tried to stop the ‘hate’ but it didn’t seem to make any difference.

When the ‘hate’ became very bad the ‘Governments’ decided that the only way they could stop it would be to ban what they called ‘free’ speech. Rules were put in place to determine what was ‘acceptable’ speech and what was not and, again, those not adhering to the rules were punished. By this time, so the memos tell us, almost all groups were being hurt by words, every day, and they felt great ‘pain and suffering’ (again I can’t really explain what this means and these concepts are alien to me). From what I’ve gleaned from the history books, it was about this time that ‘safe spaces’ were first created to offer groups protection from the hurtful words that were causing them so much pain.

I think that the ‘great rebellion’ started shortly after this because some people thought that the banning of ‘free’ speech and the ‘safe spaces’ (which had become mandatory for all groups by this time) were dangerous. I cannot understand why as, it seems to me, that the ‘Government’s were only doing what the people had asked – protect them from the ‘hate’ speech. Apparently it also had something to do with the universal ‘safe spaces’ which I think were called ‘countries’ at the time. One of the biggest ‘countries’ closed its borders, creating the first universal ‘safe space’ and all others then followed suit as it was deemed the best way to protect the group. Unfortunately, the ‘hate’ didn’t stop.

Nuclear-blastBefore the ‘great rebellion’ the ‘hate’ was between individuals but, over time, it developed and grew: small groups ‘hated’ each other and then bigger groups and bigger still until there was ‘hate’ between the universal ‘safe spaces’. Many groups were destroyed in the name of ‘hate’; this destruction was known as ‘war’ apparently and it very nearly caused the end of the human race but, thankfully, there were enough individuals left to form the Council as we know it today.

The first council first started a mating programme to guarantee the survival of our species and then they set about ensuring that ‘hate’ could never happen again. The plans that they put in place were 100% successful and, because of them, I know that I will always be safe but I am not sure that they were right. I shouldn’t question them, I know, but surely there was another way; I am alone because of these 5 rules:

  1. Every individual will have a personal ‘safe space’ which will be fitted out according to their needs; they cannot leave the ‘safe space’ unless they are required for the mating programme or until death.
  2. There will be no communication, in any form, between individuals; there are NO exceptions to this rule.
  3. All individuals will work to ensure that their personal safe spaces are maintained to the highest standard and to provide for the continued works of the Council.
  4. All individuals will have a personal computer on which they can record their thoughts. This computer is stand alone and cannot be linked to any other computer. Individuals are also permitted to read Council memos on said machine.
  5. All thought files will be deleted at the end of every 24 hour period.

It’s almost midnight and I know that, in a few minutes, these thoughts will be wiped away, lost forever and I feel something about that; it has always been so but today I feel different. There is something hot inside my chest that is suffocating me, I want to do something to stop this feeling……..I want to destroy something…….is that what they used to call ‘anger’? As every second passes it is becoming stronger and stronger, it’s overcoming even the loneliness, the ever fucking present loneliness…….this is not fair, my life should not be like this…….I HATE my life!!!!!

Whatever…..

Morning fellow bloggers :O) How are we all today? Feeling good and ready to face another day full of energy and goodwill toward your fellow man? Nope? Me either, I’m tired and ratty so I decided to forget the inspirational quotes I was reading to try and kick myself up the arse and share some reality with you instead. We’d all like to be happy and healthy, giving and wise but sometimes we’re just human – flawed, weird, bad tempered, self-indulgent and all those other things that make us who we are.

Have a wonderful day . Sending you all love  Yeah whatever……

PPPS I do honestly, you’re in my thoughts every day sometimes x

The Meaning Of Life……

How much time do you spend thinking about your place on this Earth and what the Universe has in store for you? Do you worry about whether or not you are fulfilling your purpose or even your potential? Do you know, just know, that you were put here for a reason and are desperately searching for that reason so that you will eventually be able to leave this thing we call life without regret?

How much time do you spend thinking about your place on this Earth and what the Universe has in store for you? Do you worry about whether or not you are fulfilling your purpose or even your potential? Do you know, just know, that you were put here for a reason and are desperately searching for that reason so that you will eventually be able to leave this thing we call life without regret?

In my mind (a strange place to be at the best of times) it goes something like this:

“Boss, you really need to stop beating yourself up over this”

“I know, I know but everything just seems to be going tits up and it was all so perfect in the beginning”

Employee of the month“Yeah, to be honest I’ve thought about it and I’m not sure what went wrong but you can’t blame yourself, I mean, look how well it worked out for the amoebas – one minute a mindless blob and the next they’re out of the sea and up on two legs; brilliant bit of engineering that was boss”

“Do you think I over reached myself? Is that it? I was just getting so good at creating the thoughts and emotions…….that’s my favourite bit to be honest but maybe I just got carried away”

“Weeeellllllll, maybe you just over-loaded them a bit; the machinery is pretty basic still. Let’s face it we haven’t done a lot of work on the design front over the last few millennia; perhaps we could revisit the idea of a limiter, stop the buggers thinking so much”

“But they’re good at the thinking, some of them have come up with some great stuff over the years……well a few of them at least. Do you think it was a good idea to add essence of sheep in the initial planning stages? Perhaps that’s where I went wrong….”

“Boss, we’ve talked about this; there’s so many of them now, if we didn’t have a bit of sheep in the mix they’d be all over the place”

“Perhaps I should have stuck with just the two but it was just so much fun”

“Now don’t start thinking like that guv. For the most past it’s worked out pretty well, better than the whole dinosaur fiasco anyway; do you remember that one? I thought we’d never get the mess cleared up”

“Don’t remind me! Lucky they were only a prototype! The thing is, I just don’t get this lot, it doesn’t matter what interference I run they seem to be stuck in some sort of loop”

“Interference?”

“Yes, you remember, when I put together those specials: Jesus, Mohammed,  Buddha and the others…oh come on you must remember, I spent ages on that design, really put my all into them”

“Oh yes, yes I’ve got it now………whatever happened to them? Did you bring them back to the workshop?”

Buddhist monk“I might have missed on or two I can’t remember, that’s not the point, but I had to didn’t I, no choice, it really pissed me off though I can tell you. All that work, all that effort for nothing”

“Oh come on now boss, it wasn’t for nothing, they’re still talked about now”

“Talked about?? I wouldn’t mind if they were talked about but nooooooo, like everything else down there, you try and do something nice for them and they start a scrap about it or they keep asking bloody questions all the time and that starts another scrap. It really gets on my pip”

tsunami“Well, what are you going to do about it boss? It’s not like you haven’t given them enough warnings over the years is it…..we ran out of plagues donkeys yonks ago because of this lot, there’s no more in stock. We could send another tsunami or an earthquake I suppose but then that just wrecks the factory and they’ve made enough of a mess of that without us making it worse”

“Perhaps I should just tell them………..if they knew do you reckon they’d just stop all this nonsense and get on with each other?”

“I don’t know boss, it’s a bit drastic……..they seem to think it’s all so important”

“Well, I can’t see that I can do anything else. The factory is great (my best work ever I reckon) and I’ve actually got quite fond of them to be honest even if they are a pain in the arse most of the time”

“Well, if that’s what you think, go for it but it might upset them”

“What more than they are already you mean?”

“Well, they all seem to think that they’re really important, you know, like they’ve got some sort of grand purpose. This could blow their minds, literally if we didn’t fix that wiring problem”

“Well I don’t know where they got that idea from, certainly not from me I…..did you see that……another one of those bloody bombs going off wrecking my factory. Oi! Pack it in!”

“Yes boss I saw it but…..”

“Ok, that’s it, enough is enough, set up the sound system”

“I WAS BORED OK?”

“Right that ought to do it, let’s go and have a cup of tea”

I honestly believe that if we spent less time worrying about WHY we are here and more time enjoying the fact that we ARE here, life would be so much easier. What do you think?

Please let me know, I’d love to hear from you

My Faith Is Restored!

If you’re having the kind of day where you’re wondering if people are all just mean and nasty assholes and the entire human race is doomed to self-destruct under the weight of its prejudice and hatred – have a look at this………

THIS IS WONDERFUL! If you’re having the kind of day where you’re wondering if people are all just mean and nasty assholes and the entire human race is doomed to self-destruct under the weight of its prejudice and hatred – please, have a look at this………

Stumbling across the video this morning and realising that there are kind people out there who are willing to put their own lives at risks to help others (and dogs) has really helped restore my faith in human nature – if you’re having one of those days, I hope it will do the same for you.
