Becoming alert, a regurg’ from the past

This is how distracted I had been in 2017

Just tidying up the archive- and going through the DRAFT folder- looks like I repeat myself a lot, sorry- that’s life ay? rants, Jones’d, Marvined, the last few years have been Ups and Downs and WTF’s. the next few months, because of CorVid19, will be more than interesting indeed.

2017, what is it going to be?

I am reading into all news reports (if they are News) with a frightening level of alarm, skepticism, cynicism and outright shock.


Well… Let’s just say that my trust in elders and or peers (but am I becoming one too?) is being eroded by the choices (not that mine lately have (all) been good ones) made by others in leaders that are, to me, far off echoes of ‘Look at Me! I Am The Best Ever! You will be looked after (or else!)’ Sort of. Not just local shires, counties or regions, but to countries or even hemispheres.

I reckon the fearless leaders (why is that- are there are more copycats to replace them easily) are just that. A puppet on the face of it really. There must be committees behind the voices  made up of faceless (usually and powerful enough) people to control goings on so that at least they can either live peaceably, or not.

The money Must Roll in. I can see that, but the cost I think in the end is what dystopian (?) writers fear, loss of the collective individuals to a machine life supporting the better “have it all’s”.

If some societies that are led where all are equal but some are more equal have dachas or golfcourses and full markets actually  are real, and those that are judged to be re-educated in a colder or eviler place probably don’t come back,
