Brief Future

Trevor Lockwood

I’ve made a decision. I shall abandon politics. Instead I will take a philosophical approach to life. Look forward to a perfect society. There’s much to discuss. Why do we have nation states? Alternatives to capitalism. Is monotheism preferable? Population reduction. War or peace. Equality in economics. Saving homo sapiens (the planet will survive – it is us that needs to worry).

There will be much more if I last that long.

It is now clear, after a lifetime of trying to influence events, that I have failed. That’s OK, as I have tried.

Instead it will be fruitful to look outside the box. To stay constrained means that I will always be reacting to the ideas and actions of others. That’s not helped my soul.

Let’s look at life another way.
