Six good things about the UK. 

We have been at peace for almost 85 years apart from minor skirmishes.  Education until the age of 18 and healthcare is free, it is not in many countries, including many communist countries.  Britain still has some glorious landscapes gardened by centuries of stability.  Crime is rare over much of the country.  We can start our own businesses and liberate ourselves from direct control of our working lives.  We still have substantial remnants of free speech.

Six bad things about the UK.

The Media Industry is rampant so that many live through media.  The efficiency and funding of government services is always being compromised by government and management.  The built environment is perpetually expanding.  Communitarianism and Corporatism, which is the path to National Socialism, is on the rise.  Political debate is being stifled by polarisation.  No-one seems to realize that ugly things are round the corner.

Six ugly things that are haunting us.

Huge population growth has led to global warming and the depletion of resources, this is blamed on you and me but the corporations and religious leaders are to blame.   The Anglo-American hegemony is ending and the withdrawal of military forces and especially US influence is allowing Europe to revert to type like the Balkans after the fall of communism.  China is on the rise and spreading a form of capitalism that will poison any culture it penetrates.  The footprint of humanity is becoming so large that wild places, wildlife and countryside are globally threatened.  The Media Industry is globally dominant, shaping behaviour and "morality", spreading the values that favour itself.  It is only a matter of time before there is a nuclear war somewhere in the world - but how long?
