Back and angry…

Hello everyone. As you may have noticed, I haven’t posted anything new on my blog for about six months. After nearly ten years of regularly posting, I took a break.

There are various reasons why. Life is busy, I was doing other things. Maybe I was getting bored of biscuits (what? surely not!). But a large part of the reason for stopping was that I was angry. Increasingly angry. Angry about our corrupt politicians who have sold out our futures to vested interests; who laugh and clap as our planet literally dies around us. And angry at an entitled population that grows every more selfish and resentful as they continue to grab more than their fair share of our finite resources.

And nowhere is that selfishness more evident than when people get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle. And it is getting worse. Much worse. It’s always been the case that cars brig out the absolute worst in human beings, but over the past few years, in Sydney at least, the level of selfishness, impatience and malice on display has been rising to hitherto unknown levels, mirroring the ever rising temperatures of a planet on the brink of ecological collapse and stoked by increasingly shrill neo-fascist voices in the mainstream right-wing media.

Anyway, I stopped blogging because I was getting so angry that I didn’t really want to write. But now I’ve decided to start again. I’ll try and keep the anger in check, or at least turn it into something constructive. Let’s see how we go.
