    Stigmatising Press

    If the new national sport is to force people like me to work full time, breakdown and fail then I guess play on.Even if you don’t care about my health or life, it will probably cost more to see me burn and probably risk others safety and wellbeing. Around 50+ years ago people like me […]

  • The Kamikaze Worker

    The Kamikaze Worker

    I was thinking today how politicians, media and thus society make the kamikaze worker the ideal standard for human beings. I would define the kamikaze worker as someone who puts work at the center of their life and above their health, family and society. I have often questioned the point of this overwork. It seems […]

  • A Student of Life

    A Student of Life

    In this thread I will attempt to describe a very simple summary of my understanding of life and how it changed during my #ActuallyAutistic #Mentalillness journey. It’s not complete as I would probably need a book to do that.Though knowledge of major influences may be of interest. As an undiagnosed Autistic young man I often […]

  • The Social Contract

    The Social Contract

    Developing my understanding of Social Contract theory was a milestone in my recovery. A Social Contract is where people live together in society in accordance with an agreement that establishes moral & political rules of behaviour. E.g. Law in Social security, housing, crime, tax etc. What I realised from my own experiences was that the […]

  • The Last Jedi

    The Last Jedi

    Tonight I’m watching the Star Wars: The Last Jedi on blu ray. I had a thought that the Jedi don’t just represent figures of a mystical religion of light and dark. They represent people with power and knowledge of the ways of philosophy and theology. Knowing the difference between good and evil is important with […]

  • Grateful Of Home

    Grateful Of Home

    These days I feel very grateful living alone in my flat. I experience a lot of peace and quiet. Something I didn’t get when I was homeless in hospital for 4.5 months hospital and then a hotel for 6 weeks. At the moment I just feel I want to hide away from people. I don’t […]

  • Empires


    The Roman empire after Christs death, ruled most of Western Europe and the Middle east. To spread fear in the population, many dissidents such as slaves were sent to ‘The Games’ where they were killed by wild animals like Lions for entertainment. Many of these dissidents were people that believed in the teachings of Christ. […]

  • Work Pressures

    Work Pressures

    In 2015 I had enough with life. I took an overdose and tried to drown myself. It was after that point I had ECT in hospital. For many years after I felt guilty I couldn’t work. I still bump into people today that seemed to want me to feel guilty for that. For a long […]

  • The Social Contract

    The Social Contract

    The social contract which largely originated in theory from the 17th and 18th century came about due to huge changes in how people perceived and lived. In England the influence of the Catholic church ended with the reformation of a Protestant Church. Nearly all people worked in agriculture with their families. Revolutions in organising agriculture […]

  • Exodus: Gods and Kings

    Exodus: Gods and Kings

    Rewatching Exodus: Gods and Kings. I first watched it last year in hospital from my tablet computer. I had first read Exodus from the Bible. It’s about a King who wouldn’t let enslaved people be free for economic reasons. Moses is inspired by God to plead they be set free. The King refuses so God […]
