What is really happening now, that makes ‘The Great Reset’ something that we actually need?

The problem for the politicians, the elites, the people who like trips to Switzerland to have expensive dinners around a table with their chums at the WEF, and ALL the people who remain ambitious to be where they are and just like them – is the system they have created has always been flawed, and because of the things that they have done, it has become inevitable that it is going to completely crash.

  • Nothing is going to work as it has been.
  • The Global Economy and Global Supply Chain is collapsing.
  • The Markets – based on ‘FREE’, non-existent money, are going to crash.
  • Selfish ‘commercial interests have control of all the services, products, manufacturing and services that everyone needs to live and enjoy a basic life – meaning that self-serving individuals and private interests – rather than public representatives – can dictate what qualifies as a ‘good life’ and what should be its £Price.
  • Businesses can no longer sustain the rights and regulations that have been imposed universally, but only work and exist to benefit big companies that are usually shareholder (market) owned.
  • Real life for everyone and the communities that we live in is no longer sustainable, because we have completely lost touch with and don’t even understand the lives and experiences of our own neighbours.
  • We are having our ability to think as individuals labelled as a crime and are instead having our ways of thinking dictated to us by people we will never meet or never know, who appear to speak on behalf of everyone, from an app that everyone seems to have on their phone.

The list goes on. But none of it is sustainable or in the best interests of us ALL.

When the system has crashed – or rather, once enough of us have been touched by any one or a number of the many things that we cherish, suddenly coming to their end, that is the time when we will realise and have the opportunity to understand that none of this is what our lives are really about.

That’s when we will understand and accept that we really do need wholesale change. It is when we will know that the days of the top-down hierarchy have to end.

Levelling Level | Stop the talk, stop the problem

Many of the societal problems that we have today exist in the way or at the level that they do, because of the way that the media focuses on sensationalism (bad news for somebody else).

The whole model functions on a strange kind of vicarious state of being. One that provides people with an instant high when they are able to witness someone else’s pain (All the time being thankful that it’s not them in the frame).

Problems in life, such as crimes will always exist – even if they are thankfully very few. But the way media has been working has been to expand stories of every kind that aren’t a threat or in any way likely to become real for any of us to a disproportionate and overwhelming level where they take over real life – simply because dishonest media has been abusing the trust we have in them and pumping nonsense straight into our front rooms.

People are far more tolerant and understanding of anything and anyone else, when the story they encounter is one that has only come to them as a part of their own journey through normal life, and they are literally ‘looking it in the eye’.

For a genuinely healthy society to exist, we need only to have exposure to news that is based on what is or what has been, and NOT what could or someone else believes should be.

Overview of Levelling Level

The Tory Right named their latest response to it Levelling Up. For decades, Labour and the Left have responded to it with public policy that adds up to levelling down.

But what is ‘it’? Do our politicians actually know what ‘it’ is? What is ‘it’ they don’t understand?

Today, we find ourselves in the early stages of a cost-of-living crisis and a fall in living standards that is the worst since records began. But these are only some of the issues we now face.

Social mobility, debt, housing, energy, inflation or stagflation, healthcare, climate change, education, wealth inequality, fake news, crime, wokeism and many other problems join the list that’s fast growing into this out-of-control crisis that is touching everything we know, too.

Change is happening around us in ways that make very little sense. Yet the messages we hear in the media and from our politicians suggest that everything is as fine as it can be. It is leading many of us to assume that we are alone with our views and feelings; thinking that we must be going mad.

The UK is the person with major health problems. It’s in a beauty salon, where every wannabe politician must be seen as top dog by everyone. But this political class are just the Saturday morning trainees, only able to sweep up and comb hair*. They smile sweetly and tell the Country that having a great look is all it takes to fix the problems experienced by all. Meanwhile, what the UK really needs is every form of medical surgery known, with the mental health care and physical rehabilitation necessary to make every part of our system work together, returning the UK to full fitness and providing fair and balanced lives for everyone in the shortest time possible.

With an establishment obsessed with sound bites and messages, rather than public policy that has real depth, Adam Tugwell unpicks the realities of Levelling Up, levelling down and decades of mismanagement and self-interest from a political class that simply isn’t up to the job.

Adam demonstrates that the broken tools of a flawed political age will always leave someone, somewhere behind, and shows that our politicians are repeatedly failing to create the social backstop that the UK needs to stop anyone being avoidably disadvantaged.

Levelling Level focusses on the inevitable process of change affecting everything around us that underway today. It discusses how we can harness the experiences that will accompany the challenges that we face to make life better by establishing a Basic Living Standard for all.

Levelling Level proposes that it is not money and financial wealth, but people and the way that our society treats its poorest and most vulnerable that underscores our real value, success and health as communities and as a Nation.

Levelling Level is a solution to the UKs problems that works for all.

The woke have an impractical and idealistic view of the world based on idealism and inexperience. Treat them as enemies now and they won’t learn empathy or understanding, but they will believe it is right to hate

February 15, 2022 Leave a comment

Trying desperately hard to make headlines that will distract from the self-inflicted Partygate chaos that the Prime Minister has created, each day, the Conservative Party Chairman announced yesterday that the Tories now have the woke and woke culture, well and truly within their sights.

Instead of defining themselves as the thinkers, the leaders, the pioneers of our times; those who understand how the changing world and its ability to influence thinking works, our Politicians have also become victims of the way we are all being influenced.

Their solution is not to start thinking. They just want to tackle the problem they perceive head-on. And do so without any thought for the very subtle processes and nuances of reality that are actually involved.

Our perception is everything, until we decide that it is not

By focusing upon and defining our problems and fears, we make them worse. Some might say that this is how we actually make them real and that the devil really lies in the detail of it all.

The focus may not be voluntary. In fact, as we have allowed all forms of media and information technology to enter just about every part of life, we have unwittingly made ourselves highly vulnerable to every form of external influence from which problems with the way we think – and yes, issues with our mental health, are made.

We have so much information coming at us from these different streams, that the messages we are receiving take on their own reality, just as if we are being exposed to them in real life.

Issues that are very small – if indeed they are real at all – seem very BIG. And the life story, experience or events surrounding just one person easily translate to being something that is either happening or could happen to us all.

To many of us, this is reality. Its how reality works, and when we find ourselves experiencing fears or ways of thinking that have come to us this way, we don’t begin to question its relevance or relativity to us. We just accept that this is the way it is.

We are what we think. Our thoughts become things.

So, when you have enough people accepting what arrives in their heads as read, we find ourselves in a rather strange place where the thinking or the views of just a few are not only accepted as real, it also becomes the collective truth – no matter how wrong, flawed or misplaced that initial thinking might actually be.

The problem for society – and by that, I mean everyone – is when decision makers, people with real-life influence and power, and those whose roles have implications for the general public, don’t possess the understanding of how the world has changed around them. They fall into the trap of seeing what is in front of them on a screen not only as their own truth, but the truth of us all.

Wokery, close relative of the social justice movement and political correctness that still exist and came before, are the problem that they are and are as dangerous as they are today, not because they have any real value. But because of the way that their voices are heard and then perceived and accepted by the unthinking as the majority view.

Oddly enough, the people who we should be able expect to understand the myth and mechanics of how wokery works and influences us, then take appropriate and considered steps to show us all how unreal and unrealistic it actually all is, are our politicians.

Yet they don’t.

Wokery is at best is just a phase in life based on youthful inexperience and idealism.

At its worst, wokery is the voice of the angry. Of life’s victims who don’t deal with the issues they face and instead look to project the blame for everything that happens away from where it should actually lie. Pushing it outwards to anyone and anything they can find fault with and make guilty, therefore highlighting the innocence they see within themselves.

The reason we don’t ignore or dismiss this kind of thinking and the way the people experiencing it behave – as we would do if we were to be touched by it ‘in normal life’, is because its voice has become multiplied many times over by our media culture. It has as such taken on the false appearance of being ridiculously strong.

Until we see wokery as the foolishness that it really is and stop giving oxygen to the dangers it both poses and has already posed to real people going about their real lives, it will continue to grow. It will have very perverse influences on life for us all.

Politicians should literally be putting up a hand to say stop to anyone who wants to make emotion without experience real. They should be telling them to get a grip. They should be working to create an environment that values the experience of all others above academia, think tanks and media messaging – prioritising the real world and real life above all miscreated thoughts that nothing more than perception is allowing to become things

As examples of people who were once very woke or social justice warriors show, most of the young people who are led by this idealism begin to wake up as the depth and understanding that only comes from life experience deals its inevitable blows.

They deal with them and move on, and in time learn to respect the reality that we all see and experience life differently, and that there is nothing right about having alternative ways of thinking about life imposed.

The danger is that in their desire to knee jerk their way out of trouble today, our feckless politicians are about to make the reality that the woke believe in even stronger. All at a time when the last thing we need from the voices that have a stranglehold on influence is for them to believe the establishment has now legitimised their hate.

Politics & Wokeism now run on the same pretence: Not how things really are, but how things should be

August 9, 2021 Leave a comment

The term Woke feels new and as confusing as it is overpowering. It is presented by those with an agenda to push it as being the unescapable zeitgeist.

It is not. But that isn’t to say it doesn’t feel that way. Especially as there is so much going on across society and politics in particular, which is aligned with arguably the same thinking, ending up with impacts and consequences for us all in a surprising number of very similar ways.

If you took the time to ask everyone how they would like their lives to be and how they would like to experience the world, you would get as many answers back as the number of people that you ask.

In the majority of cases however, what they would have in common would be that they are based on idealism, rather than using life experience as the basis of making an informed choice.

This is how society increasingly thinks about everything today. If you were able to jump into a time machine and talk to people of the same ages and from the same kinds of backgrounds in the years that followed the end of the Second World War, answers would reflect a very different kind of choice. It would be informed from the experience that life can really be dark and terrifyingly hard. Many would have been very practical in their reflections, and the common message would simply be ‘it is great to be alive’.

Hardship is a reliable teacher for those who think they have nothing to learn. And as we approach nearly 8 decades passed since the end of that horrific war, it is a regrettable reality that many from within our younger generations are now obsessed not with what they have, but with how they believe their lives should be – without any respect for the rather large gap that sits between.

To be fair, idealism is a very powerful and passionate motivator, and the real reason why so many of the younger generations are left leaning or more socialist in their outlook. People become more right-wing or conservative in their ideas as they gain more experienced of the real world and adult life.

Today, things have gone much further than that. Many simply do not reflect upon what they have already got, overlooking a vital part of the process that helps us to become self-aware, instead focusing ever outwards for the answers to the questions about life that they have, whilst failing to understand how other people think, because they don’t even look at themselves.

People literally don’t live in the present, but have their thoughts focused in a semi-permanent state of anticipation about where things could be or should be, then falling into the trap of thinking that the desired state or experience is something that can simply be ‘imposed’ either by telling, or coercing people to live or behave this certain way, using rules or peer pressure to see the desired result imposed.

As time has passed since the 1940’s, the mindset that is the approach of dealing with life how it is with practical appreciation and understanding of how it works has been left behind and replaced with the approach of everything can be as it should be, simply because we say that it is – and what happened before doesn’t matter, because this is how its going to be right now.

The switch between the two was for a long time very subtle. It quickly began to affect decision making right at the top, but it wasn’t until the practical realities of decades of public policy being based on impractical idealism rather than practical reality was going to bite back, especially as we reach a point where those pushing this thinking hardest are literally punishing people with a different outlook for simply being who they are.

Even today, some 5 years since the European Referendum where ‘Brexit’ was ‘won’, even the political class itself cannot recognise that the whole European Union ‘project’ was based on a collective of ideas aimed at creating the ideal model of a European Superstate, with systems, procedures and governance not built upon the foundations of how life is for the communities, cultures and whole different Countries that the Bloc is made up of, but literally wiping that all away under the premise of how life should be with the only concession being a slow process of deliberate mission creep that hides the practical reality that imposing impractical reality was the strategy all along.

Brexit was won by the votes of people who have a clear understanding and experience of how life really is, as opposed to the alternative, which was always about endorsing a process which was always going to have serious consequences for the unnamed and unrecognised majority, because you cannot run an entire continent on the basis of how things should be.

At a time when the Government response to the Covid Pandemic is speeding up the arrival of a perfect storm of problems that have been in the making for decades, we are being forced into a culture war between what is and what should be, with seemingly no room left in-between.

Somewhat ironically, it is because we have had so many decades of everything being so good, that the impractical idealists championing woke thinking are able to behave as dangerously as they are doing so. The problem is that without respect for the practical realities of life and how the world really works, we are being set up for a massive fall, just as soon as the bubble bursts, and young people and those who are not appreciative of a more practical way of thinking are going to find the impact of the drop and the changes that it will require particularly hard.

There is nothing wrong with wanting life to be good, fair and the same for all. But the idea that this can be achieved by erasing history and anything distasteful, then making every part of life exactly the same for everyone is a recipe for disaster being cooked up and sent into a hurricane on a ship of fools.

We cannot escape the reality that we are living and experiencing – no matter how hard we might pretend otherwise. Changing it all for the better can only be achieved by looking at it, interpreting it and approaching it all differently. We will not do this by looking outwards and by hiding behind what should be. We have to look at ourselves, our history and the lives that we all live and move forward accordingly. It is we that must be the change.
