It's about a year since my last post. In that time I've lost three people very dear to me. Whether or not I'm tough enough to get going again remains to be seen but, I am trying, a little step each day.
Though it has to be said, taking an interest in world affairs doesn't bode well for anyone feeling low;massacres, beheading,slavery. Still, I'm still on track with my exploration of the Orthodox Church and have some more reading lined up and, having become fully aware that a general election is set for May I've started scrutinising some of the Parties gobbledygook for a chink of-well I don't really know yet. Hopefully there's something to restore confidence in politicians but , I'm not holding my breath on that one.
One snippet of news on the equality front caught my attention the other day, something to do with a tug of love over a gay cake in Northern Ireland;one to follow me thinks.
To any one who has got this far, I hope the rest of your day is the happiest ever and if you're near a loved one give them a hug
- There seems to be no area of our lives, whether public or private,that is not subject to the scrutiny of the 'Equality People' Yet, no one ever defines Equality. So, how will we know it when we see it? Is it definable? And are the principles of equality, however we define them, attainable?.Is the ever extending range of government regulation over our lives 'progress'Or,are we on the road to totalitarianism. Are we hindered or helped in our quest for rights and justice through membership of the E.U., U.N.,e.t.c. or, would a strengthening of our own Parliamentary Democracy serve us better. This Blog will comment on equality and related issues with the hope of making some small contribution to the debate. Feel free to post your opinions and share your thoughts and experiences. That way we can get a better idea of how we, the little people really feel about things. And,just maybe,we might even influence the debate!
