Monday Moaning: Individual Unity!
Here in Europe the countries bosses are franticly running around as Britain has had their vote and chose to exit Europe’s Union. It is the first crack since they have tried to unite more than one individual country. Whether this is going to be sign for the future is unsure and if one should hold their breath, my answer would be, why?
The whole concept of uniting individuals is a human concept. A contradicting way of thinking and fighting to make it work as it clashes on more than one front. Though the idea is fantastic and in theory is workable, it is the individual that always kills it from within the formation. Europe may not be the first to attempt this though they done so with countries instead of states like it had been done in the USA.
One solemn body to govern many countries or states.
For many reasons Europe has tried and I won’t say failed their attempt as there is still nothing lost and can be learned from. Open borders for all Europeans, no tax on transport between countries to just name a few positives. In the end it was to make trading easy and working across borders just the same. In the meantime the Union was making laws/rules that would cover all countries even though they had different laws before.
It is this fact that is starting to tear up the ideals that were projected onto the population. The made laws are interfering with the individuality of a country. And to us who hold high our individuality and even promote in every sector we come across, we do not want to be told to become someone else or act against our ideas.
Soon as you read this you can compare it with the US, I think. Where, and this is something that is or had been playing for a long time, one can only get married as a gay couple in certain states. It is there where we see the individuality of a state/country come drifting up on top of the surface. Europe is no different.
The difficulty we face every time we talk about societies, communities and bringing them together is how we act upon and look at individuality.
Back to Europe and Great Britain exiting the union. The Pound crashed, the stocks went down as a result. The reaction of us upon an individual choice. We point fingers, we shout and scream and even get angry at them for having a voice. We are sad and think it is a bad thing while it only shows our shortcomings and things we need to change.
True enough it is still a great idea but what we like to see is that we become, monkey see, monkey do. One law and we all abide. One line of thinking and we all follow. Uniform and in straight lines. The idea when reading this is way too scary.
Still trying to figure out why we would have to be mad at the Brits for making a fist. Why would we have to be scared about worsening relations? It is and never should have been a matter in the first place. Whether they are or aren’t part of the union they can still uphold the same contracts as before with the only difference that they COULD change it at will. Not said they would.
In the end the only thing we fear the most is an economical hell where money is gone or worth less. One thought and we all worry about money. Should we put money over the people? Should this be the way we govern our country, making money and not worry about our thoughts and the people who live in it.
Apparently this is the way the world is turning. Would one really think it over, the only tat connects us all is after all; is Money. And even that isn’t the same worldwide. Europe has the Euro that is true. One coin for all countries and it has proven quite convenient, but the Pound has always been there and it never caused trouble so why would it do so now?
Either way we want to look at the situation, it comes down to money.
This is even the case in the USA as they are ready to go to vote. The issue that is playing up at this election is gun control. And it isn’t even funny when you think money is involved. And how different thought arise from different fronts and states. But neither is willing to come to the middle.
Just to be clear, I understand the idea and the opinions given that one has a right to protect themselves and their family. But on the other hand I will also say it does not need a fully automatic M4, Uzi or even a shot gun. So why not take these from the market and only have a handgun. And I am all too aware that when you have it lying around you will also use it, period.
Stop producing ammo in abundance. No need to have 12 clips worth of bullets at home. And target practice? Go to a shooting range and get your ammo there.
Now this is my idea. You can see this as a compromise hoping to keep both ideals in check. In the end one is free to either own a gun or choose to leave it.
This is the easiest way to show you that a union is very hard. Trying to find a solution both or each individual can live with.
One concept we have come up with and is in no way controllable. And yet we try time and time again. And as soon as we stand up for our own actions and take responsibility together with accepting ideas of others, it might just come to work. Still need some laws or rules to cover each and every one. But ty can still be the simple ones, like the ‘Though shall not kill’. And who would have thought it is the one thing we can all agree upon and neither is willing to take responsibility for when they do.
Let a gay couple get married, what is wrong with them adopting a child.
If we want a solid community and society we might need to start looking at ourselves first and stop projecting our ideas upon those who want to be different. And maybe, just maybe we might change the world. We might still need overlapping laws and rules but they just need to be basic and clear.
PS this is just the Crow’s own ideas without having any doctorates or papers to back him up. Only his observations and ideas are the basis of this written word.
I enjoyed reading you thoughts on this. I am not in Europe and have no idea how this will effect the people there but it has certainly hit us hard in the markets here. I understand the need to control borders, unfortunately it has become necessary to control the flow at some point, How sad for the refugees searching for a place to be. The NRA is a apparently an insurmountable lobby here in the US, they have paid Rep. Sen. John McCain 7.8 million dollars to date, that money is not for nothing. I am for the 2nd amendment, but rejecting regulations to insure they do not find their way legally into the hands of suspected terrorists is insane and in a world where so far one should not find the need to defend themselves on a large scale, they should be banned to the public. It’s the wild wild west over here.
Thank you thank you for your wonderful thoughts.
If me personally I say ban guns. We should not have to protect ourselves. There is no need to arm ourselves if we stop violence period. This is however unlikely since we almost always revert to violence. I totally agree.
As for the UK. Why do we react or does the market react like that. Out of fear and its fear of not knowing what will happen as they make it happen themselves. It is the self fulfilling prophecy. If we did not make a fuzz over it, we might have reacted differently. There should not have been a reaction, why did they not support it? It would have proven a better understanding and cooperation than shunting them and placed in a corner.
As for refugees. That is the media talking to make them look bad for their actions (market plummeting blame it on the brits) But the refugee problem makes the rest of the world look better. as the more important fact is that the British Government was controlled by the European to say it bluntly. A UK voice had no say in what happened in Europe. That is the upsetting part. And my view as well.
Though I choose my own government, they have to listen to the European Union. And there it was the word of two sometimes three. Where the rest just follows like sheep on which we had nothing to say.
It is just that sorry, I had an epiphany or something like that. Understood the 2nd amendment. Dumb ass me.
It has as far as I can follow the politics been an issue. And the camps are a simple yes or no fucking way. And whatever plan is made to have some control is swept of the table. WHY? How hard is it to try and find a solution. Like I mentioned. I think money talks instead of listening to the people and those hearts. It is a shame that some try to govern or get elected with a dumbass for a head and a greedy brain.
