Frightening [Nov. 26th, 2016|12:25 pm]
Tony Grist
I'm so tired of being told these are frightening times.

I lived through the Cold War. Now those were frightening times.

Or not.

Every generation thinks it lives in frightening times. What that means is it doesn't feel entirely in control.

What's the worst that can happen? We all die. Well that's going to happen no matter what. Get used to it.

Don't let the media scare you.  Remember they make their money by creeping up behind your chair and going, "Boo!"

There's more to life than politics.

Come off that news site.  Take a walk. Annoy the cat. Have a nice cup of tea.

I took part in occupying a university building during a period of student unrest in the early 70s. There were barricades. I manned them....

Ours was a privileged, white, middle-class occupation... We had no barricades, but politely asked people not to teach or attend classes. Not quite the "Les Miserables" scenario.

(My personal youth rebellion was to refuse to let my mother dye my hair blue or pierce my ears, instead opting for a side parting and button-down shirts...)
