A Happy New Year to you all…..and may it be considerably better than 2021!
But it won’t be if we don’t take heed of the changes in our society.
We have seen governments taking on arbitrary powers to combat Covid…..and being reluctant to give them up.
We have seen private companies…Facebook, Youtube and Twitter……deciding what we can and cannot say and can or cannot read.
We have seen the rise of ‘hate crime’, where it is sufficient for someone to feel offended for Plod to appear on your doorstep.
We have seen respected academics sacked for holding unpopular views.
We have seen police giving more attention to controlling the public than protecting them from crime.
We have seen the rich get richer and the poor poorer, the latter stigmatised as lazy and workshy while those attributes should be realistically assigned to the former.
We have sick societies, so, in 2022, prepare to get up and stand up for your rights
