This evening I decided to re-read my 1st blog book “Thoughts” which can be purchased right here: My Book.
It is of interest that typos found their way into the final product even when I read through the blog entries several times, in addition to using a grammar tool. It is my experience so far that the tech we have at our disposal hasn’t caught up yet. I often see that mistakes make their way into my final published entries and I see this with articles published by mainstream major media outlets as well.
I’ve decided to let my mistakes stand though as a testimony to my own humanity and fallibility. Hopefully I’ll publish something typo-free next time around with better grammar. In my own defence: English is my 4th language! 😮
The reason as to why I decided to read through my book this evening was to double-check and police myself. At the end of last year I started freaking out a bit when I received a spooky comment on one of my entries regarding radical Islam in Europe. In addition to this I re-lived the sort of social-media strangeness that I first experienced back in 2015. Wondering if I had caught the attention of someone dangerous I set a number of my entries to Private, but when things calmed down I later went on to publish them as a book. After looking at them again now I don’t necessarily see any controversy, unless one chooses to be in denial over how things are playing out politically for the various Nations of Europe.
It is of interest that my 1st political entry published in early 2016 was written from a completely secularist perspective, certainly aligned with the Europe of today – if one is opposed to imported extremism that is.
Fast forward to November the 19th in the same year and I’m openly contemplating whether it was a grave mistake to destroy Christianity within our continent as it was evidently starting to dawn on me that our values are not competitive.
It becomes obvious when looking at the entries that I’m describing a decaying social construct and a governing elite mistrusted by their own people due to a widening gap between those who lead and those who follow…
When observing small acts of kindness and respect from the current leadership in the U.S.A. towards their American voters (something that is never really reported on in the mainstream media press) you see an effort in place to ensure that “the people” (regardless of how abstract the definition of “the people” is) don’t feel forgotten by those who govern!
President Donald J. Trump shaking the hand of every single Navy Graduate at the graduation ceremony for the U.S. Naval Academy class of 2018; represents great leadership since these type of acts make those who work for you feel valued. Those who were there will probably never forget it; it is also suitable that one should look those in the eye that one might send out into war one day. It is the lack of such acts, just to pick an example, that can potentially create distance, resentment, and eventually loathing, towards those who are in charge….
It is important to make people feel that they are being taken seriously and that they are at least listened to.
In my entries it is obvious that the gap between reality and the fiction sold by the political-correctness brigade just keeps on widening, and that the people are aware and notice, fuelling underneath the build up of total fury.
I hardly mention U.S. politics in my book at all, since this was obviously not on my radar at the time.
Seeing the blog entries now gives me the chills since what I describe is a crumbling Europe, where certain demographic groups have been planted into every single European Nation, which surely looks like a deliberate act of long-term de-stabilization.
I address the symptoms of continental illness, but without rudeness, I make the distinction between the moderate and the extreme. That being said; the fixation that naturally ensues when one knows what the truth is and pursue this truth further, is not a healthy endeavour. I’m amazed I haven’t had an aneurysm yet, because heavens knows: the current predicament of Europe makes me sick!
The reason as to why people become entangled in this obsession, is because people know that their concerns are legitimate and right. They keep on going and going and going and going, not necessarily out of ill will but because they know that they are speaking the truth and that matters will only get worse, much worse, if nothing gets done.
The irony of course is that something can only be done by those who have the power to do so, the question is whether there is a willingness, and that is where the division between “the people” and those who decide kicks in, not to forget that an unwillingness to act will probably give birth to competing entities that bypass established institutions….
An incredulous political vision is being pursued in Europe today; and I hope that the emergence of bold, conservative leaders will give us a much-needed shift before a peaceful re-setting will be out of reach.
The wider the gap gets, the more troubling is our future.
