We have brought nothing into the world, and neither can we carry anything out. So, having food and clothing, we will be content with these things.
( 1 Timothy 6:7, 8 )
When you appreciate what you have, you have everything you need.
How can a person, or a class, be free when its means of life are in the grasp of another? How can the working class be free when the sole chance of existence of its individual members depends on their ability to make profit for others?
Generous people are happy because they enjoy making others happy, even if all they can give is a little of their time and energy. They often gain in abundance what no amount of money can buy – love, respect, and genuine friends who give generously in return.
This government show little concern for our essential public services when they put them in the hands of wealthy private companies, whose sole aim is to produce profit to give shareholders their dividends.
( R S Hutchison )
We are all responsible for what we believe to be true or false that gets put into our mind and our brain.
We all wish for a peaceful, non-violent world. When we find the cure for greed, and get rid of those obsessed with power, our wish may come true.
( Rose Winfold )
We all reach that point in life when we realise that not many people like hearing the real truth.
When morality comes up against profit, it is seldom that profit loses.
( Shirley Chisholm )
If you wouldn’t want something done to you, why do you think it’s okay to do it to others?
You may live to see man-made horrors beyond your comprehension.
When you’re dead, you won’t know you’re dead.
All the pain and suffering will be felt by others.
Exactly the same thing happens when you’re stupid.
We have invaded your country to bring you democracy. When we’re finished dropping our bombs and firing our missiles, killing thousands of your innocent men, women and children, we will take charge of your oil and resources and place a puppet government in place who will take instructions from us and be controlled by us. All your citizens will then be free, just like us.
( U.S.A. )
One day scientists will discover the centre of the Universe.
There will be many people disappointed because it’s not them.
That’s all anybody can do right now. Live. Hold out. Survive. I don’t know whether good times are coming back again. But I know that won’t matter if we don’t survive these times.
We live in a time when most people, including many politicians, are too inattentive or occupied too much with themselves to understand others.

Company That Employs A Tory Politician Is A Given Virus Testing Contract ..
A healthcare firm which employs Conservative politician Owen Patterson as a paid consultant has been awarded a £133million contract without any other firms being given the opportunity to bid for the work. The Department of Health and Social Care has given Randox the contract to produce testing kits to help respond to the coronavirus pandemic. It was awarded without prior publication of a call for competition. The founder of Randox Laboratories is Peter FitzGerald, a polo-playing multi-millionaire Northern Irish doctor who is the UK’s 475th richest person with a £255million personal fortune, according to the Sunday Times rich list. Health Secretary Matt Hancock’s department awarded the contract last month under fast-track arrangements that enable public bodies dealing with the pandemic to give contracts to commercial companies quickly without the need to ask other firms to bid for them. The firm has employed Owen Paterson, a former Conservative cabinet minister and leading Brexit supporter, as a consultant since 2015. He is currently paid £100,000 a year at the rate of £500 an hour. Under its contract, Randox has been paid to carry out tests, both posted to individuals at home and administered at testing centres.

Governments in capitalist society are but committees of the rich to manage the affairs of the capitalist class.

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.
( Philippians 2:3 )
In my opinion, we don’t devote nearly enough scientific research to finding a cure for jerks.
Why Does The Universe Exist? ..
How did we come to be? What is the purpose of life? What does the future hold? Some people shy away from these questions, thinking that the answers are beyond us. Others say that such questions are pointless because life is a product of mindless evolution. Some people see a universe that is governed by precise, elegant, mathematical laws. They marvel at the impressive designs in nature, some of which humans try to mimic in man-made products. And everyday experience tells them that complex, highly functional designs point to intelligence, not undirected forces.
A bully is a coward, and not one has been born that won’t burst into tears when he sees his own blood.
( Len Firswood )
To be led by a coward is to be controlled by all that the coward fears. To be led by a fool is to be led by the opportunists who control the fool.
( Octavia E. Butler )
If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.
Those who voted to leave the EU and who have spent the last four years saying to remainers, “You lost, get over it”, are still waiting to discover what they’ve actually won.
When questions of ‘class’ interests are eliminated from public controversy a victory is thereby gained for the possessing, conservative class, whose only hope of security lies in such elimination.
Dysfunction And Cruelty Is The UK Home Office ..
There is much that is twisted and horrifying about the UK Government over the past decade of Tory misrule. One of the more obscene pits of dysfunction and cruelty is the Home Office. This is an agency that often behaves like something out of a dystopian fantasy. The Home Office went off the rails when the Tories started believing their own blather about reducing net immigration. The UK generally had some of the more liberal immigration policies within the EU. The Cameron government and Tory party acted as if the state of the UK immigration system was the EU’s fault. Before the Brexit vote EU legal structures would have allowed the UK to tighten rules on immigration from Europe. For political reasons the Conservatives failed to even acknowledge that this was possible.

Blind political party loyalty is a disease that inflicts the stubborn and the stupid.

The speed and anonymity of the internet has released a demon in otherwise normal people, transforming them into spiteful, mean-spirited psychopaths.
( Craig Brown )
All struggles are essentially power struggles. Who will rule? Who will lead? Who will define, refine, confine, design? Who will dominate? All struggles are essentially power struggles, and most are no more intellectual than two rams knocking their heads together.
Without doubt, greedy humans and corrupt governments are responsible for the destruction of Nature, the destruction of all creatures that inhabit our planet, and the destruction of our planet itself.

No amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction, can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party. So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin.
