Interesting Times Indeed!
"May you live through interesting times!" is an old Chinese saying, and nothing is truer than this saying for this present age. Nothing is certain and nothing is secure and we can find this truism in the writings of Alan Watts "The Wisdom of Insecurity." The worst aspects of human nature are revealed in the events of the past decade and the present situation. Bankers are contrite and government politicians are in denial and in a state of confusion. Out of this confusion policies are instituted and laws are passed which have no relation to the real needs of society, and ideas are floated which have more in common with desperation and division than with common sense and benevolence. It is time to hold an election in Britain as the unpopularity of the government reaches new heights and its handling of affairs sinks to new depths.
