For many years now, I’ve had a feeling that something isn’t right with the world that we live in, and that some events that take place just don’t make any sense.

I’ve been sceptical about the ‘intentions’ of our own Government, and have long suspected that we don’t actually live in a ‘democracy’, but something that merely pretends to be so.

When it comes to our ‘media’ and its reporting, I don’t take what they say at face value. I bemoan the seeming lack of ‘proper’ investigative journalism, as we seemingly live in an age now where journalists merely ‘parrot’ the ‘official narrative’ behind any event, and very few will ask pertinent questions, and press our ‘leaders’ and ‘spokespeople’ into giving straight answers, rather than just repeating slogans and soundbites.

We have a ‘crisis’ with freedom of speech and freedom of expression. Thanks to ‘political correctness’, people are self-censoring their opinions, and stopping themselves from questioning these ‘official narratives’, for fear of ‘offending’ or upsetting someone.

I started this blog as a means of being able to articulate my own thoughts and opinions, while retaining a degree of anonymity.

So on this website, you’ll find many pieces I have written where in many cases I am taking the opportunity to make my own ‘observations’ and comment on various issues of the day.

I am not a serious full-time researcher, though where I can I will provide links to material that I feel is relevant.

For the few people who do visit and read this website, I thank you. Please do listen to what I have to say, I may be right, I may be wrong, you may agree with me or you may disagree. That’s perfectly fine.

I don’t claim to be any kind of ‘expert’. I don’t have any high-level recognised academic qualifications or certifications. But what I am is an ‘ordinary’ person down on the ground, curious and suspicious, while also ready to listen to new opinions and alternative viewpoints.

It would be a completely boring world we lived in, if everybody shared the same opinions and viewpoints.

If something doesn’t feel right, then question it.

Question EVERYTHING!
