Making the Future Female

GREECE TODAY UK TOMORROW?


Hands up who can remember their fathers working Saturday mornings? I’m 54 and can just recall those days. Well folks – that’s what your political masters have in store for all you naughty lazy people – and you can forget the Minimum Wage as well.

So to all those who parrot the government’s lies about ‘Austerity’ and ‘We’re all in this together’ bollocks – do you now see that you were used? Used as working people have always been used – in wars, coalmines, factories, offices and brothels.

I can understand the bosses and billionaires saying it – understand but not condone – because they benefit from your stupidity, from your ignorance.

But in an age where we can all find out about history, science, politics and technology there’s no excuse for being ignorant.

So who wants to bring more children into a world like this? Perhaps you think it will be different for your kids – tell me how. Perhaps you think children will somehow make you ‘whole’ –  they don’t. Did you make your parents whole? Of course not.

Every extra person is an additional load on the planet’s resources. 

But wait, I hear folk thinking – there’s plenty of space for more people – if we all lived closer together, or, or…

And don’t bother looking to religions for an answer because they’re part of the problem –  a massive part – following these fools will make things worse. For you, me and all the kids who are hungry, thirsty and have no hope of a decent life.

So take a look at yourself and ask – am I part of the solution or part of the problem? There’s no time to sit on the fence – we’ve reached the tipping point and there’s no going back.

Do something about it – before it’s too late.

GREECE’S eurozone creditors are demanding that the government in Athens introduce a six-day working week as part of the stiff terms for the country’s second bailout.

The demand is contained in a leaked letter from the “troika” of the country’s lenders, the European commission, European Central Bank, and International Monetary Fund. In the letter, the officials policing Greece’s compliance with the austerity package imposed in return for the bailout insist on radical labour market reforms, from minimum wages to overtime limits to flexible working hours, that are likely to worsen the standoff between the government and organised labour in Greece.

    • Yes very – especially as life could be so good for everybody, but the elites won’t have that.

      And as more folk become frustrated and bitter more violence ensues and as always the weak get hit worst.

      Even as an optimist it’s hard to see things improving, but what other options do we have?
