The roots of poverty in wealthy countries

The only way people can really BE secure is through social cohesion … which means lending your neighbour a lawnmower, having infinite patience with alcoholics, and leading by example to

Solar PV - clean energy, wobbly finance

Mixed news on solar generation of electricity On the one hand, buyers of homes are steering clear of homes with leased solar PV panels on the roof, because of uncertainty and complications surrounding the owners of the panels - a private company, and the guarantors of the tariffs - government. It's hardly news that a week is a long time in politics, so a twenty five year guarantee of feed in

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 psychology, uses escape mechanisms to suppress the truth

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 have been blamed, but how much does it

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’ mobility with mechanical aids, is clearly a sort of additional

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 decisions about what to eat. Understandably, when

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, and a system that is in debt to a handful of

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, because it is widely used for 'time out', which

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 the tiniest nod, which Paul had learned to interpret as "trust me, I’ll

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 time for the occasional chat with Paul to help the young fellow slow down a bit.

Undead, part 2: power, freedom, denial

Part 2 of The Tibestian Book of the Undead (read part 1 first ...) Chapter 3 Why am I writing this? Because I kept a diary, every day after I finally acquired paper, but after a century or so of diligently making notes and musings, someone stole it. I'd like to think it will turn up one day, but judging by my location at that time, it was probably used to light a fire or wipe someone's

Pathological Wealth - and solutions

#pathologicalwealth - a hashtag that is overdue! A preamble to the video of Ethos Genesis Post-mechanisation,the production and distribution of basic needs is so simple that we should all be bored stiff. In fact, most people are too busy and exhausted due to the corrupting effects of #pathologicalwealth of the few, and disinterest on self-education by many of the poorest. The following

Individual freedom versus corporations

I asked my pal in Illinois why the area he lives is so sparsely populated and yet Chicago (the nearest very big city) is bursting at the seams: "They move to the city for jobs, but ... Even the city jobs are few. America isn't what the rest of the world envisions it to be any more. I just read an article recently which said Americans need to realize that the 'golden' age of America is over.
