Sometimes I hear people described as always having had a ‘sunny disposition’; did that mean they were ignorant or uncaring? I could have a ‘sunny disposition’ all the time if I avoided any thoughts of reality. Unfortunately, I can see the negatives in even the closest and most personal elements of ‘my world’; seemingly unlike those who criticise us the most, ignoring their own failings and blaming them all on us! Now, I think I should have taken any white male privilege I had when I had the chance. But in reality, my mind keeps on being ‘greenYgrey’!
Clouds Obscuring Clear Sunny Happiness
Humanity = my species / out of control overcrowding planet Whites = my race / mostly meat-eating environment destroyers Britain = my country / cold, cloudy with continuous class system
Then there’s all the problems on the social/personal level, with daily tragedy dished up by the media, and people you know if you’re in large social circles.
Then there’s life, knowing we’ve got a limited amount of time, but not knowing for sure where our world came from or what’s beyond our universe.
Accepting humanity and the world are always going to be full of flaws and deteriorating in our lifetimes is a big step in freeing your mind from continuously running it uphill to try and get it over a non-existent peak… in fact you’re just helping it go faster downhill (creating more overpopulation, environmental destruction, species extinction etc).
For more misery, there’s books full on Amazon. Not that I’m completely miserable, just the usual mix!
I don’t need anything to wake up for… I just need nothing to sleep…
I used to think I worshipped you, but now I know it was the ideal me… because the vision’s become, sun shining through tree.
We should have statues for all the environmentalists killed in Africa, trying to save animals and world, such as the Adamsons (Born Free: Joy and George murdered nine years apart) and Dian Fossey (Gorillas in the Mist).Other statues for locals killed, like the many in the Amazon.
Prophet Mohammed of Islam fame should definitely be cancelled, as he had a 9-year-old in his harem!
It’s ironic that Princess Latifa (mid-30s age) and the other captive princesses are being ‘protected’ by their fathers, when the groomed girls in the UK were being enticed out of their homes, and away from parents who tried to keep their children indoors when they knew what was happening. That’s how Islam works, locking their females up, while grooming others to them, where they ruin their lives, chipping away at local communities, so they can’t have family lives. The Yazidi women raped by I.S. had to leave their I.S.-raped children behind, and they and their families and communities will have to live with it forever.
This is how I feel on the edge of the greenYgrey world, with the bulldozer of mass media humanity against me!
What makes animals automatically mate, fighting each other for a partner and position; sometimes to the death; not seeming to enjoy it, and endangering themselves while pregnant and caring for the young. Only humanity will miss most species; the animals will just miss a mate; probably wondering what life was all about… like many humans now!.
If there was no Earth there’d be no air, devoid of atmosphere. Our space would be void, only matter would matter, not eco disaster
Everything on Earth all in mind, space we know and hope to find, but the bigger picture is beyond mankind, possibilities signed…
Our lost Princess Latifah looked oh so sweeter taken by cancer forever not locked away by father!
The great greenYgrey journey… I’ve often taken too… feeling a pull to England across the Severn… out of more distant travel/music_events necessity… my Jersey birthplace… or ancient memory?
Every Muslim ‘women’ feature should be framed/introduced with the fact that the Prophet Mohammed had a harem that included a 9-year-old: Ayeesha. The Princess Latifa story is the latest example of it not changing much since; following the I.S. treatment of women in the Middle-East, Taliban in Afghanistan, and ‘grooming gangs’ in the Western world.
‘… prog rock giant Fish, as he delivered his farewell masterpiece Weltschmerz, acclaimed as one of the finest albums of his storied career… I’m never going to be playing stadiums or arenas again. And I definitely don’t want to be on the chicken-in-a-basket circuit..” I knew Fish as the lead singer of Marillion in the 1980s, and this is a modern middle-aged version of a Henry Rollins 1980s ‘not selling out’ story I posted last week on Facebook.
5 years ago I finished my epic classic XaW Files: Beyond Humanity, bringing an end to my fantasy fiction writing… on its peak as far as I was concerned, burnt out from the 202 chapters/episodes. It was an introspective arty book, so I didn’t expect it to become a best seller; Pink Floyd said they wouldn’t have become successful nowadays!
I never reached the Fishy salmon heights of stadiums, being more of a coelacanth; rarely seen dinosaur down deep below. If a celebrity such as David Walliams or Russell Brand (I still liked him when writing the second of the trilogy Werewolf of Oz; he was an inspirational critic, like Banksy in art and Sacha Baron Cohen in conceptual comedy; but went against him when he started acting like a cult leader sexual philosopher with his Revolution book, but he’s still popular with the ‘ethical left’; who also support materialistic money orientated rappers!: Glastonbury ‘hippies’ seem to have sold out and given up on the environment!) had released XaW Files I think it would have received the plaudits Fish has received for Weltschmerz, but it’s remained a coelacanth cult classic!
Going halfway against its natural liberal leftie woke readership, keeping to the greenYgrey ethos; being most inspired by the original 1950s-1970s counterculture, but trying to support my working-class/underclass demographic (who mostly don’t appreciate such books); didn’t help, but that was also keeping in line with the punk in me; like Henry Rollins and Fish in the two recent examples.
I’ve enjoyed some bands I hadn’t seen before on the ‘greatest hits’ circuit in recent years; inspiring the gYg rock n’ roll hall of fame; and caught up with some again; and it gives musicians like Heavy Pettin’ a livin’; couldn’t resist a little wordplay parody; and audiences entertainment; so I’m ‘greenYgrey’ about that too!!
If you haven’t bought greenYgrey yet, there’s been no better time… or worse! Here’s a few Facebook general environmental/political thoughts that have nothing to do with XaW Files: Beyond Humanity, the book I think you should buy this Christmas, to give the gift of greenYgrey!
Winter Cold/Hot Showers
When I started taking cold showers for the environment (energy and water use) two springs ago I’d turn the shower on twice, as I turned it off while I soaped.
I thought that was using up energy, so now I use cold water from the tap, via an old big plastic milk carton, to wet; then soap; and then turn the shower on to rinse: with hot water now in winter!
I think it’s also making me healthier and stronger (internally and mentally), in line with the Wim Hof method (no link or contact to me!), who’s furthered medical knowledge of humanity by experimenting on himself.
A vegan only cancels out themselves. If they bring one meat-eater into the country they cancel out their ‘good’. 2 meat-eaters and they cause twice as much meat-eating as a meat-eater who doesn’t support mass immigration! And so it goes up, 3, 5, 10, 100, 1000…
If I give up on green environmentalism it’ll be giving up on humanity and the planet, rather than what I think is right and good; if animals are just going to die by plastic/climate_change, then they might as well be eaten!
I’m still ‘just’ a vegetarian. Many have become vegans since I started, and many have stopped; many ‘influencers’, ‘writers’ and ‘journalists’ rewarded with big financial paydays for their brief soirees into non-meat eating! I salute the vegans who’ve stuck at it.
While ‘trendy vegans’ may have done animals a little good in their much publicised time, they’ve probably done more harm than good overall, as people will think the whole movement is ‘fake’ or ‘unhealthy’.
Especially if they’re flying around everywhere, and supporting open borders immigration!
Immigration and Environmental Destruction
There’s no good and evil about immigration, as some like to claim about those who want to restrict it; just different ways to look at a world that is massively overpopulated; and that is probably suffering environmental destruction and mass extinction because of it.
I consider myself indigenous to Britain and an environmentalist. In other countries those two go together, but in the UK and Europe they are usually on different sides of politics, with those who consider themselves ‘indigenous’ considered ‘nationalistic’ and ‘right-wing’, while environmentalists are usually on the left.
I know the ‘indigenous’ I’m referring to are usually in the minority, but ‘white Britons/Europeans’ are projected to be a minority in the near future… and especially if the left/Greens get their way and open up the borders!
We’re having a White Christmas Friday Charity Match at the greenYgrey, I’ve already given much more to charity than earned through royalties (or articles etc pay), but any sales of XaW Files until Christmas will be fully matched with extra charity donations, added to my regular ones to Guide Dogs, Dogs Trust and British Legion. I’m also a lifetime member of the Woodland Trust, offsetting book paper!
I thought it was a bit rich (pun intended) Unilever (via Ben and Jerry) playing politics when they’ve always been considered one of the most unethical companies; such as by Ethical Consumer. Here’s an off the cuff first draft and second morning-after edit I posted onFacebook.
Corporates and anarchists united!? More people = more profit = more eco destruction = short term outlook = like eating fattening ice cream instead of dieting!! Ethical consumer very critical of them, for using palm oil and lowest possible rating on animal testing!!! One of the companies to boycott now trying to be all PR; maybe using same as Meghan!!!!
My reaction to Ben and Jerry (Unilever really, B+J is just their nice brand face to sell more!) criticism of UK immigration policy was an off the cuff first draft. If Unilever’s immigration policy resembles B+J ice-cream (fat instant hit, bad for the body later), a more reasoned sensible and thoughtful policy is like eating slow-burning carbs, such as a banana. Unilever stand for no control and discipline, while what they criticise is like a well balanced diet!
I think I could be a top Hollywood PR now, like my namesake Sara, who’s heading Meghan Markle PR; which seems similarly hypocritical to Unilever! I tried taking the more ethical route of exposing and criticising PR, but now the ‘left’ seems to be putting population before planet… led by these corporate PR campaigns and the ‘new consumers’!!
