Well.

Nothing bad to say but just to orientate you on how to behave in such a forum like this!

Advice:-
If you read a post and didn’t achieve any positive things from it, you did not have any right to abuse a poster or interrupt those that they fund such post meaningful in other not to convince them.

All you have you do is by just leave the post once it does not help you.

NOTE:-
Don’t see this has if I abuse you rather than see it as an advice in other to keep the forum neat.

Thanks.

By all means burn your bra!

I’m sure your kindred womankind based in sweat shops in the East will be wholly grateful for the opportunity to make you a new one. - If that is, they’re not too busy stitching together their next batch of “This is What a Feminist Looks Like” t-shirts.

lol, that Beyonce thing was quite amusing (while not really being amusing), though I imagine Beyonce’s staff probably made that dreadful call, as she’s too busy shaking her booty and being a professional pop star.

Incidentally, a lot of these sweatshops are still just as bad as they ever are with some minor improvements so wishy-washy liberals like me handwring a bit less. What’s not so often reported is the lovely garden industry that has sprung up servicing huge multinational companies by being their nominal not-a-sweatshop, honest guv. They then outsource to… can you guess, children? Can you possibly guess?

That’s without even going into the ongoing situation in the Congo. Your cellphone is literally made with other people’s blood. Think about that next time you play candy crush! Conflict minerals is a good keyword for anyone who wants to feel crushed and disappointed with humanity. Child labor too, of course. Because why not?

Perhaps OP would like to weigh in on this issue of global importance before telling people opinions aren’t allowed like some prissy schoolmam?

What OP is advocating is a sterile forum where everyone drinks tea, nods politely and says things like “I agree” “great post” “thank”.

That’s like the seventh circle of Hell due to its endless capacity to be terminally dull.

This is actually exactly why I don’t have or use a mobile and why I buy all my tech stuff second hand off ebay. In fact, I find it amusing how just a few weeks after exposing how a lot of iphone factories are still using the good old suicide netting to stop people finishing work early, Apple’s gone and decided to replace most of them with robots.

What really drives me nuts, though, are the green energy lot. The carnage that is caused by extraction of rare earth minerals to make wind turbines and solar panels in eye-watering, especially considering the fact that it’s simply still not possible to run an average home when utilizing both systems.

Now I’m not saying that the idea of renewable energy is bad. However, I’ve met one guy who lives very comfortably now in Scotland after selling his rights to his own version of a Sterling Engine for a few million just so that it could never be used.

That’s the thing with all the trendy’s, they love their green labels etc but rarely will they ever take the time to appreciate that they are just buying into massively commercialised popularism at almost every turn.

Ggrr…

Oh man, so many green sources of energy or alternatives to petrochemical power (or whatever your preferred term is) are bought up by… petrochemical companies… then left to die.

Most people just want to subscribe to some sort of tribal thought, and the unthinking Greenie is no different to the unthinking Trumpie, or whatever. It’s a rare person who will take the time to educate themselves about the reality of this world, which is not exactly as presented.

Having said that, I realize that not everyone has the energy after a long day at work combined with the grind of daily responsibilities to go out and do more work educating themselves. But that’s also a part of the plan…

Ahhh ‘the plan.’

Yes, the increasing madness of the world is why I decided to get off it. I do worry at the moment, though, about my newly arrived into the world niece and nephew. Them and my sprogs when I get round to having them.

That said, I’ve kind of decided/chose to believe, that when I have sprogs of my own it’s going to be with a tribal woman in the Amazon. There will at least be able to make a stab at giving them a life away from wrecking ball Earth.

We’ll live in a nice thatch hut, take ayahuasca every Sunday, social media and addictive tablet devices will be banned, and whenever an illegal logging group turns up I’ll shave, put a on a suit and pretend that I’m the CEO of their company and that I’ve decided to send everyone home on full pay forever.

Of course, that’s never going to happen. However, there’s no way I’m letting my future kids become fodder for ‘the plan’ or the whatever unholy mess the world is destined to become by the time they are 20.

Yeah, the kids today have a tough future ahead. It was one of my reasons for leaving the UK. I’ve never regretted it. I’d like to try ayahusca one day, even if it does look like brown sludge. The trip looks fun and potentially insightful. Major minus point is the potential for being stuck with space cadets on a trip while tripping, and dealing with their earnestness when not.

Your CEO idea is ingenious and far more effective than a looking like Swampy with a placard with a peace sign on it somewhere! Fun story for the Brits here–my school was right next to the Newbury bypass construction and didn’t meet Swampy, but I did meet a bunch of tree-dwelling hippies. They were pretty cool, if useless at stopping the construction going ahead.

Anyway, the world is doomed, and my generation (I’m 34) is now laden down with babies and mortgages and dull jobs with commutes. I grew up with these people. They morphed into dull adults overnight. The same for their kids. They’re not living. Your fantasy wouldn’t suit me at all, but… I get it. I get the desire to just say “nope” to the whole system and wander of doing my own thing.

I get to sit around and write in my PJs while living somewhere I love and meet new people every day. My life is far from perfect, but I’m happy with it.

I think their biggest issue is going to be social bloody media. You see it sometimes in articles where people ask teenagers about stuff to fill up an empty page. Quite a few live though their glossy Instagram account and won’t do anything unless it looks good. That’s incredibly sad.

Throw in the idiocy of “how does a mouse work” because they’re so used to touchscreen and…

God, I sound like a get off my lawner now. I think we should have a Fiverr-sponsored ayahusca getaway. At least the promo videos would be interesting, right?

Meh, kids of today with their selfies have nothing on the great leaders of the past in their self indulgence.
“I’ll sit here for 6 hours in my most audacious attire while you paint my portrait. PS. If I don’t like it when you are done then I’ll chop your head off”.
Contrast that with being delighted/upset with the number of likes the kids get and they aren’t so bad.

Yes, in case you were wondering this is an old guy saying kids of today are not as bad as people in the “good old days”.

I’d do the ayahuasca get away! In fact, in theory, I know how to make DMT out of the tall peacock feather like reeds (arundo donax) you get everywhere here on Mata and I’m guessing in Greece also. The only problem is I don’t think I could handle the meeting of different non-human entities business. I’ve had more than a few sober experiences with that kind of thing. - Not quite exorcist material but not too pleasant either.

Alas though, the world is doomed. I too haven’t looked back since leaving the UK. In fact, I only spent 3 out of the past 10 years living there and even that was too much. All but two of my friends and peers are pretty much carbon copies of the people you describe. Zombies working every day, paying out their ears for everything and living vicariously through futures that I can guarantee them are never going to materialize.

The kicker for me came when it was time to either keep on paying extortionate rent or buy a place finally and become one of the ‘normals.’ I simply couldn’t do it. Just the idea of stitching myself to one place for the next 40 years given the dismality of the upcoming future was just too much. - And I was based in Fort William which is a pretty nice area actually when you look at what’s on your doorstep.

As for my fantasy, it’s probably just that. I have been looking at Cambodia a bit lately though. A lot of Cambodia isn’t actually online yet in the sense that home Internet is still a bit of a novelty. The only problem is that i could never take my dog to a country where he could quite possibly get eaten by the locals.

All that said, I’ll put some kind of fantastic plan together one day. I used to be good at that kind of thing. Also, your right, the suited and booted CEO idea is a good one so who knows?

@chief_seo is the guy who lifted an article from ezine articles and then got upset when he was called out on it. He posted the same nonsense in his other thread. Here is some free advice for you sunshine. Keep the forum neat by not plagiarising other peoples content

I was looking at Cambodia not so long ago. I believe that there is a city there (I can’t remember the name–began with a V? It’s like the second city or something) is a hotspot for “digital nomads”. Of course, if you loathe buzzwords like digital nomads and hate freelancers who call themselves stuff like “web marketer maven” (aka they write a blog), you may be better off ignoring them. Most other online workers I know irl are living delightfully chaotic lifestyles. Myself included, I suppose…

I would be quite interested in the whole meeting non-human entities business. Apparently you just have to take precautions like imagining yourself in a white light bubble and denying lower entities the opportunity and all that jazz and you’ll meet a bunch of cool ghosts and whatnot. Having said that, you don’t necessarily need drugs to do this. Astral projection is another way to go, although I’ve never seriously tried to do it. I am too fidgety.

We need another woo-woo thread! Maybe I’ll start one later, though I should be finishing up work and focusing on the agony boobwriting aunt gig creation.

I like that my career allows me to seriously write sentences like the above.

I think we can all agree that awful, vapid people exist in every generation. Maybe I am painting with too broad a brush, but I’ve seen the local Youth Hostel turn from a social place to a sea of people staring into their Facebook screens as they share their holiday with everyone rather than… well, ya know, enjoying it. See also “I am at a concert making a crappy video rather than just enjoying it”.

Not quite Pol Pot, agreed, but just because technology is hugely convenient, it doesn’t mean that we need to be glued to it*.

*I’m being a massive hypocrite here obviously
