So, I’m loving where I live, great people, tolerant of my blaring music . . however . . the guy upstairs is learning to play the banjo, and he’s going great guns, alas, no one has pointed out to him that an instrument needs to be tuned, at least once every ten years.
I have practice in tricking tone deaf banjo players into letting me tune up for them, I wonder if I should invoke this trickery, or should I grit my ears and not risk being the asshole neighbor? (albeit one with bleeding ears).
The more I see Russell brand the more I ‘really’ like, if only that he’s somebody with passion (remember that old thing?)’. In this interview at last somebody stabs the elephant in the room. Considering Australia has just recently been handed over to an insane, inept, immoral government in a media driven coup d’état, Russell may actually be one of the few people on this planet willing to call it, and see it how (i perceive) ‘it’ really is.
I share Russells passion and frustration at what is happening to this world (forget governments for a minute, lets add in many/most organized religions as well, with their wealth, power, manipulation and trickery . . of the individual and governments) This is obvious when you see the number of people in our communities unwilling, or incapable of thinking, or acting for themselves. They are prime fodder to be tricked into votes, or to be relieved of having to expend energy on emotion or thought.
I wish i was quite as sure as Russell that people will turn things around, i hope so, because i honestly don’t hold out a shred of hope for humanity to not fall into an abyss of destruction driven by greed, apathy and selfishness. Maybe humanity gets what it deserves.
