It is not!

Family Businesses

Those with ambition and drive should avoid joining a family run business, if they wish to climb the corporate ladder on their own merits.

In a family business the only way up the ladder is via arse kissing, or marriage into the family.

Ready Made Meals

Ready made meals are the opium of the lazy and indolent. They are expensive, and awash with excess salt and fat.

They should be avoided at all costs.

The Immutable Laws of The Universe

The Immutable Laws of The Universe are as follows:
  • It is impossible to achieve a state of zero risk

  • The costs of trying to achieve zero risk are truly staggering, and are simply not economically viable

  • Struggle gives life meaning

  • Profit is the reward for risk.

    We live in a capitalist society, and rely on companies and individuals to earn money to make the economy work and grow. Without this growth we would still all be festering in caves.

    Zero risk means zero profit, which in turn means that no one would go into business and the economy would grind to a halt

Life is the same now as it was when it first emerged from the primeval swamp.

The only difference between then and now being the forms that life takes.

Relying on The State

Relying on the state to act as arbiter in day to day situations simply turns people into mindless automatons, destined to decay and wallow in their own filth as they wait for the state to wipe their bottoms.

Man is small when measured against the vastness of space and time.

However, his limitless dreams and vision transcend those parameters.

The Achievements of The Past

There is a tendency in the Western World to belittle and underestimate the achievements so the past.

This is a foolish, arrogant and dangerous notion; as it ignores the knowledge that our ancestors took generations to accumulate, and means that we do not learn from past mistakes.

Arrogance comes before a fall.

Memory anchors us in time, and gives us perspective on our place in the universe.

In order for mankind to develop and improve it is important that people are not held back, in a misguided attempt by the state to "protect" those at the lower echelons, by those at the lowest level of society.

People need to be challenged, by aspiring to the standards set by those at the very top, in order to give of their best.

The resulting improvements and developments will be to everyone's benefit.
