FREEDOM?

It seems to me that there are two major groups in U.K. society. One is the elites who by dint of their occupation or wealth have significant powers vested in them. By virtue of these powers they are able to take decisions with regard to the lives of persons in the second group, which I am going to call the ants, or the lumpen mass. This second group of people is subject to the ‘nth degree to the control and decisions made by the elite about any and every aspect of their lives. Usually the decisions are dressed in altruistic terminology, and called “caring.” Phrases like “it’s for your good,” or “it will benefit you,” or “We will be able to provide 24 hour care for you.” I would argue bluntly, however, that this is a deceit.

The ants are an uncomfortable reality that the elites do not wish to face. They should be shut away from real society, and not have the ability to move around freely, with their “problems.” Those who raise their voices against this, thus putting their heads above the parapet find themselves in immediate danger of losing their “freedom.” They are uncomfortable for the elite to listen to, and the ants then become fearful for what might happen to them. They might be shut away “for their own good.” I would like to pose the question,

“Whose good is this?”

At the same time their money is taken away from them to pay for their “care.” They are then trapped for ever in the “care home” because their house is sold and they no longer have anywhere else to go. Thus they have lost all freedom.

I therefor want to pose the question “Do we live in a truly free society?”

    Oh Liz. That is a nightmare. Why is everything so difficult nowadays? Honestly, it is so typical though, and I am so sorry you are going through all that. No wonder you are stressed out. I hope you can manage to take some relaxation, but I know when your mind is all over with all this, it is hard. Sending much love, and hugs Liz xx ❤️❤️

  6. Thank you Lorraine. I did manage to keep my Friday just for me. I managed to start it for myself from yesterday, after seeing my mum at the care home. So I do feel calmer today.
    I visit friends tomorrow. But its always enjoyable and then Sunday will be my own time again. So hopefully I can make this feeling last. Xx

  7. Yes. So glad that the timijg has stopped. Thats what upset me the most.
    As much as I would like to see my mum several times a week, its probably best for both of us that I don’t. But its nice knowing I don’t have to clock watch when I visit my mum and I can be there as long as I want and also how long my mum wants me. Xx
