A Changing World

I cannot believe how much the world has changed since I was a boy. I sometimes get the impression that the human race is going stark raving mad, what with all the changes that have happened over the last seventy years.

Beautiful England

When I was a young boy the world was at peace, except for the continuous verbal altercations between communist Russia and America. The only war that took place in those times was the Korean War against the communist north which was short because the United Nations got together a multi-national force to stop them. Despite that the world was for the most part at peace, and countries did not antagonize each other. On top of this we never had violent demonstrations with teenagers setting fire to shops and cars. There were of course demonstrations by the miners in Britain, but for the most part they were more or less peaceful. People went about their daily lives without demonstrations and complaining about what their governments did or did not do.

 

Summer In The UK

The weather was for the most part calm and we didn’t get hurricanes, flooding and drought across the whole world. In Britain winter was cold and we got our fair share of snow, but when spring came it was calm and the trees and plants blossomed and the countryside looked beautiful. In England we had many woods full of bluebells and daffodils as winter past. They have now for the most part disappeared because the farmers wanted to make more money and had them cleared. When summer came we had temperatures in the mid-twenties which was a pleasure for the people. Holiday makers went to English seaside towns and spent their time on the beach basking in the sun. There were no drunks causing mayhem on the streets and drugs were never seen.

The Raging Sea

What a huge change has come over the world today. Now we see all the things that were never heard of in those days. Wars, hurricanes, drought and flooding all across the world, and not to forget the violent demonstrations by the people against something or other. Governments having slanging matches against each other, and tensions have mounted in this modern era, and for what?

ISIS Execution

Currently Europe is battling against the influx of migrants caused by the ISIS war in the Middle East, and the continent is being flooded with these people because few countries have taken the time or effort to put ISIS out of business. I have often said that the United Nations should have stepped in long ago and wiped these people out so that the world can return to peace and all the migrants can go home. As you know, this has never happened because they stay silent.

At the moment Russia, Syria, and the United States are doing all they can to stop these people but arguments about how they should go about it are commonplace. The sad thing is, many ISIS fighters have come to Europe as refugees and have carried out attacks on various nations.

ISIS ‘Refugee’ Arrested At The Border

It was said in a report a few days ago that the whole world will be Muslim by 2050. That I cannot believe but this is what ISIS is trying to achieve. In our prisons Muslim prisoners are trying to convince other prisoners to become Muslim, and the number of people in the U.K. who have converted to Allah is growing. Why?

People in the Middle East have suffered greatly under ISIS but the other Arab countries like Saudi Arabia, Dubai and the UAE have done nothing to help these people so they have all fled to Europe. The only Middle East nation to help has been Jordan, and they are stretched to the limit.

As It Used To Be

We have seen huge changes in the weather due to global warming. Even England has had its share of hurricanes, flooding and drought. But it is far worse in other countries across the globe. Recently dozens of people have lost their lives in the flooding in Peru, and we have seen major droughts across many nations, so for example, it is impossible to grow crops to feed the people, especially in Africa. In the middle of Africa at the moment there are 20 million people who do not have enough food to keep them alive. What are the rich nations doing about this?

Murder On The Streets

Constantly we hear of vicious attacks and murder by young people these days. This was very rare when I was young because we were brought up properly by our parents, and discipline was strict during our formative years. Now all that has gone and the young people do as they please without a thought for others. Almost every day we hear of murder and violence in Britain, sometimes for the most stupid of reasons. Young people go out on a Saturday night and use drugs to get high and consume a lot of alcohol just to have a good time, and then the violence begins. Street fights, and sometimes murder.

The World Of Anarchy

The world has become a sad place and it makes me wonder how long mankind will last. In general we have become so violent against each other that the future of mankind is in doubt. Within a few years complete anarchy will reign in many countries and that will signal the beginning of the end of the human race.

Bribes

We have to get back to law and order on this planet and governments must govern properly for the sake of the people. The main trouble with politicians is the lust for money. Most of them will take bribes for agreeing to dubious suggestions put forward by companies and fellow politicians just to make themselves rich.

Gates And Buffet – Two Who Help Others

We have many rich businessmen who are worth billions, but what do they do with the money – hide it in offshore bank accounts instead of using it to help others. Two of the people who do not conform with this are Bill Gates and Warren Buffet. Most others do not care to help those who are in dire straits.

The Poor And The Rich

Rich countries are doing little to help the starving millions in Africa, and if they do there is always someone who will help themselves to the aid money given by many countries. Look at Haiti for example. There were billions pledged to help the country after their tragic earthquakes that destroyed the capital Port-au-Prince, but very little of it actually arrived to help the people rebuild their capital. Its the same the world over. Money has become a ‘God’ to the current generation, and people will do whatever they can to get as much as possible. It is my belief that all this will end in tragedy for the human race.

Clean Air – A Necessity

One thing we should not forget is the increasing contamination of our atmosphere. In many cities across the world the smog is so thick that people wear masks to stop it getting into their lungs. If this continues, then the life expectancy of the people will be very low. We will no longer see people living to 80 or 100 years as the pollution destroys their lungs.

Poisoning The Atmosphere

Proposals have been put forward to ban all diesel cars on the roads because this is the number one polluter, but this will never happen. We also have to clean up our factories that push out huge volumes of smoke to  get the atmosphere back to normal, but again this will never happen because of the cost.

Get Ready To Lose Parts Of California and Miami

This atmospheric contamination is causing the sea temperatures and level to rise. It is said in America for example, that in thirty or forty years much of the coastal towns in California and Florida will be taken over by the sea which will cause havoc among those living there. These are not the only cities to be affected as there are many more across the world as sea levels rise. The only thing mankind can do is to stop the atmospheric contamination so things can return to normal. This will take years to accomplish, but governments worldwide have to be strong.

The Aftermath

Perhaps the only answer is for the population of this planet to diminish to perhaps a few million and then mankind will be able to continue its existence. This may happen, what with the current tensions between the USA and Russia. If it escalates then someone may be dumb enough to ‘press the button’ and nuclear war will follow. Mind you, the radiation will spread around the globe and most likely few people will survive. I hope this never happens, but you never know.

The Big Problem

Taking everything into account this world has become a tragedy compared to what it was. Very few countries know the meaning of true peace and just government, and to me its only going to get worse. As it gets worse more people will die, especially the starving in Africa.

Yesteryear The Murderers Paid the Ultimate penalty

Currently the law is useless against criminals and murderers these days in Britain. It is a farce that you can kill someone in England and get a ten year sentence, but are out of prison in three or four years. In my time if you kill someone you would go to the gallows and be done with it. But the ‘Goody Goodies’ have ensured that this is no longer the case, and they keep trying for more lenient prison terms because they think that to go to prison will change the minds of these killers. This is a load of bull (and I put that nicely).

Taking everything into consideration I am glad that I am 74 and not 21. For the world is headed for some major upsets in the years to come.

Roy.
