LIFE AND TIMES: Be bold, be brave.
I am a bold kinda guy, I believe in being progressive and trying, failing and trying again.
Here’s a list of some of the worlds greatest people.
Leonardo Da Vinci
Sir Isaac Newton
Wolfgang Amedeus Mozart
Sir Francis Drake
Joan of Arc
Why post this? What’s my point?
Now don’t get me wrong on the Trump thing, I’m deeply scared about that, but it is done, move on, try and get it turned over? Like Brexit, democracy dies and worldwide revolution becomes a reality.
The sheep has won short term, so have the puppet masters and so have the real bigots, those who love us to be subservient.
So back to the bold and brave.
We all love a rebel, our popular culture is based on people being rebellious and challenging the establishment, and we all cheer when the rebels plans finally succeed. In film Luke Skywalker, Jason Bourne, in literature Winston Smith, Tom Sawyer, in song, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, in history, all of the above names.
Nobody ever celebrated anyone who wasn’t bold and brave and progressive. Without these people, the world would have been a dead grey place, a subservient place with a population of people unwilling to progress.
I am literally staggered these days at those who think it is right NOT to challenge those in power who are clearing doing wrong to us.
Well, here’s a thing.
I was in London recently and in no other country is their such diversity. I can eat any type of food on every high street in the UK, can you say that about France or Italy?
Maybe, but probably not.
At the end of Birdcage Walk in London there are monuments for the dead of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and so on, those who fought next to us.
Or stew in the corner and let history forget you.
Aka Luke Skywalker, Winston Smith, Woody Guthrie
