These are not impossible goals and are achievable with effort. But they are not gifts they need to be demanded. And most importantly you need to believe that they can happen and only you can make them happen.
*Do we want a society.
Where, privilege looks down on poverty:
When Language, in matters of state is used to deceive rather than inform,
*Do we need to rely on an education system that depends on competition, winners and losers.
Where big business leeches on the tax system while the small or independent go under crippled by overheads.
*Where the unemployed are offered meaningless rote jobs or further education that leads nowhere.
A rentier society where homes mean investment rather than a place that everyone should have.
*A society to tired from overwork when there is plenty who could share in the work.
*A society so obsessed by entertainment that a considered opinion is based on last nights viewing.
*Where the old and frail are robbed of their dignity and their money in institutions founded on profit rather than care. Hospitals, run down to speed privatization where it is just as easy to catch an infection as it is to rid yourself of one, through a lack of the most basic and fundamental premise of medicines, cleanliness.
*Where the business’s in our high street who are seen to be at the principle of British Quality are in name only. As they
hive off jobs and production in this country and sell manufacturing contracts to the cheapest taker in the poverty stricken third world.
*Where the intellectual community sits on their hands and remains silent about what they know, and play apologist for financial gain against intellectual integrity. And where once again the liberating technology is used to confuse, entertain, spy-on, de humanize and degrade social interaction. It should be no secret to anyone, this is what we have
What we could have
Do we want people to represent us that we can trust. Respite from worry for the old where they will feel safe and secure.
* Education for our children that will help them lead a good life. That will teach them cooperation rather than competition.
* Communities that are in control of their own environments and not left to the will of the planners.
* Communities where children feel part of and feel safe as they play. Where People can feel safe 24 hours a day on the street.
* Do we want our institutions. hospitals, schools, run by people who care about such things. Our transport systems designed with ecological considerations. Most people would agree to a community that incorporated these ideas.
