The Blindly Driven Army

A little tired and after a couple of beers I feel a little shit about the world. A couple of conversations about my holiday in Malaysia haven't helped and despite the fact that I only have four working days left until another holiday, all that doesn't seem enough right now.

My problem is the general attitude towards life in this country. Exactly what do we push ourselves for? Why do we work longer hours than most other parts of Europe and yet come out with a lower standard of living in a lot of cases? Why do we put up with getting constantly butt fucked by our government and not give a shit when we see Tony Blair's smug rich face on the TV taking the piss out of us all by kissing The Chimps arse when we, the public, would rather he didn't? We're supposed to be one of most democratic nations on Earth yet we're turning into the Yanks, absorbing TV and watching our lives pass by in a little bubble while we dream of winning the Euromillions or becoming the next non-celebrity to win Celebrity Big Brother. Fuck!

I guess what I'm saying is that we need to change the way we live on the whole before we all hit sixty and realise we've wasted our fucking lives. Look at the French, ok they smell of onions but they get out for two hours every day and have lunch with their friends. When was the last time most of you stopped for ten minutes?

So stop, think, is this really what you want to be doing?? And if it isn't, why are you doing it?!?
