I. Really. Must. Right. Something.

The world has become a very scary place in my mind which is why I often gargle my mind with sentences from books I like, sentences like “It is to erase the fixed smiles of sleeping couples that Satan trained rooster to crow five times in the morning” (Jitterbug Perfume – Tom Robbins), because they keep the fear at bay.

Nowhere is it clearer than in the US election campaign that the world is a world divided into the rich and poor. This thing that we’ve swallow about how we can all make it big and become rich has suddenly acquired a bitter taste. I’ve been waiting for people to wake up for some time now and now it seems that people are beginning to see that the divide between the rich and the poor is getting larger and larger. The richer are getting richer and there is more of the poor.

I hope and I really hope that for our sake the current trend of believing in capitalism will change. Socialism isn’t the answer either but surely we’re clever enough to think up something better and fairer.
Apart from that I must really write something, right? I miss writing.
