Politics for a mature species …

Protecting the working class from the pathologically wealthy (the 1%) is a fairly obvious political goal, but having seen several people switch camps (1% to other 1%, and vice versa) due to their changing circumstances, the rational conclusion is that human nature is vulnerable to both temptations, and is either unaware of its own selfish … Continue reading Politics for a mature species … The post Politics for a mature species … appeared first on pjf.

Parenting – 2015 in the UK

There was very distressing news in the Independent newspaper. Despite initiatives by government to provide pre-school classes and social workers, it seems more than half of the nation’s five year old children begin school lacking the most basic skills.  For example being able to hold a pencil or communicate in comprehensible English. Poverty and cuts … Continue reading Parenting – 2015 in the UK The post Parenting – 2015 in the UK appeared first on pjf.

Wholeness and Driving – Undead Diary chapter (2x +1)

Another excerpt from my 360+years diary of a reformed vampire The longer you live the more problems people seem to invent – or I am just being cantankerous? I’ll try to be more accurate – people keep inventing further complications. I can’t complain, though clearly I’m itching to! Driving, by which I mean personal ‘independent’ … Continue reading Wholeness and Driving – Undead Diary chapter (2x +1) The post Wholeness and Driving – Undead Diary chapter (2x +1) appeared first on pjf.

healthy diet and poverty

Unplugged from food corporations I’ve heard some alarming tales from friends who work with people trapped in poverty and debt. The worst cases, due to the tax and benefits nightmare orchestrated by successive governments, are all people working full-time. Usually, they are working so many hours that they find it difficult to make the best … Continue reading healthy diet and poverty The post healthy diet and poverty appeared first on pjf.

corporate politics – presidential auctions

I was tempted to title this ‘Corporate Democracy’, but that would be such a glaring oxymoron. It is frustrating to witness the ‘relatively’ poor people of the world beating each other to death over whether to vote for Trump or Clinton in the 2nd $billion + US presidential auction. Both candidates are representing corporate interests, … Continue reading corporate politics – presidential auctions The post corporate politics – presidential auctions appeared first on pjf.

hashtag needed non corporate social media

The very wealthy want ordinary people on zero-hours contracts, mindless, weary, drugged, consumers, in debt and paying them rent for “life” (if you can call it that). They want addicts of corporate “entertainment” and news. Clearly we need to be noncompliant, but what phrase, better still, what hashtag best describes this? #unplugged is no use, … Continue reading hashtag needed non corporate social media The post hashtag needed non corporate social media appeared first on pjf.

fiction – career choices on leaving school

Ivor and Paul were chatting in the barn, out of the (rather unusual) blazing sun, when Ivor’s grandson arrived. Ivor made a big deal of greeting him, very warmly, and Paul raised an eyebrow. Alex looked up now and then and smiled, but mostly frowned, his gaze downcast. Ivor caught Paul’s quizzical expression and gave … Continue reading fiction – career choices on leaving school The post fiction – career choices on leaving school appeared first on pjf.

Unplugged from the Corporate World

Short story – Unplugged from the Corporate World Nearly two years has passed since Paul exited the commercial world, his caravan on Ivor’s farm is homely, his own plot of land providing most of what he eats, with surplus salads to sell, and Ivor, being a wise old bird with no paper qualifications realises it’s … Continue reading Unplugged from the Corporate World The post Unplugged from the Corporate World appeared first on pjf.

Debt Valley – and the route to escape

tags: advice, diet, poverty, support, wellbeing, debt There is an excellent documentary on the BBC about the debt trap aimed at very poor people, and the burgeoning loans / pawn shop “industry” that profits from it.
