i dare say that there is nothing good to say about living here, no one likes anyone, the people have grown to be narrow minded, paranoid and needlessly violent.
because of religion (Catholics vs. protestants mainly) the people here cannot even live together, every town is divided up, where the catholic live in one place and protestants live in the other. this is known as segregation and it is a common theme in the UK.
young people feel the need to riot, kill, bomb, join dissident groups and stereotype anything that moves all because of a past which does not even apply to their generation. how will this kingdom come to mend itself if this continues?
of course there's the queen, who sits in her royal chambers doing fuck all. then the police who cant do anything for fear of their own lives and the parliament? useless! no one trusts them after they caused the credit crunch, stealing money from our bank accounts just to buy a second car or maybe even a holiday house, leaving us with nothing.
and that is what i have to say about where i live. thanks for reading. :3
Well the government is kinda similar here, unable to tell the truth plenty of mistrust/violence.
Many of the people are set in their ways and lack trust in other people and as for the violence you mostly hear people talking about it being done by proxy
As for religion I am fine with whatever religion you or anyone is(from the ones I've met) as long as you don't try to convert me or tell me why mine is wrong. For the segregation, that is mostly gone except that people of certain income amounts tend to live more commonly in certain areas.
The young people here(of witch I am one) could use a bit of the enthusiasm of yours over there. Except for the whole wall street thing there hasn't been too many notable riots I've noticed. But killing and bombs, someone should try to get them to accept the concept that the initiation of violence is always wrong.
We don't have a queen, we have a president who is basically a king for a term of years or at least people treat him as such. The police here on average don't tend to try to protect their lives as much as they do stuff to potentially ruin the lives of others, such as bringing a person to court over the possession of marijuana, A "victimless crime" the very phrase is laughable since over here(and there) the courts are structured around an adversarial system , and inorder to have adversaries someone's rights need to have been violated. To whoever reads this, thanks for reading if you did.
