I just think it's scandalous that substance can mean literally nothing in modern business practice.
Like is there anyone in western society who thinks we live in a well-ordered and properly working civilization with craic like this happening? We live in a fucking mess. At this stage of my life, the colours of my professional destiny are nailed to the mast; I will never be a politician, or a businessman, or a tradesman. I will probably be a musician/performer/artist for the rest of my life.
But how can these fundamentally important spheres or human life be in such bad condition? how can business be this twisted in to it's own means? how can politics be this full of weeds?
Where are society's guardians and why are they sleeping at the wheel? all I can do is sing for people and cheer them up after a busy day, fight the battle against the soulless poison pouring out of radios, paid to be there as much as the advertisements are. and hope that, when I buy myself insurance, when I sit down for a pint, when I order TV channels, that my money is going somewhere useful, what I'm being charged is fair, etc. Maybe had I known how low the threshold of competence was for such things, or how low the moral compass. I could have been a bishop, Taoiseach, property tycoon or CEO of a private hospital.
I wish I could've seen how badly people lie and mislead when I was younger so I could have realized how useless people are at everything., and how much more qualified for positions I considered outside of my skill sets I was in fact probably too good for considering that I consider myself an honest person.
Phew. rant over.
Please stop taking away all the good things in my life world.
