If we vote why are we so discontented with Governments. Perhaps it is the way Government is structured into parties. As a voter I would much rather vote for policies than parties any day. With technology the way it is surely voting on policies can become a reality.

If you could change one aspect of your life - what would it be?

The aspect I wish to change, is "dealing with my mind chatter". The movies I play when having to deal with issues which have  many possible outcomes. This chatter occupies my time and I either procrastinate on taking action or miss the real facts.

How many Japanese prisoners of war is there? - answer very few. We are led to believe that the Japanese solider fought to the death or committed suicide rather than be captured. We need to get a balanced view here. The victor's tend to write the history. The truth is most were shot on the spot. A policy of "take no prisoners". Australian's even executed 60+ PNG nationals via a Kangaroo court, who were forced to rescue the Japanese wounded. They thought they were doing a compassionate act, and were also protecting the lives of their families by following the orders of the Japanese occupiers - Australia's dirty little war secrets.

Get the sense that our leaders are toothless.
 
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it!

I'd like to remove news from my life, I'm bit of a news-media junkie. But I am starting to question why I need this information. To remove yourself from these distractions and then to focus on yourself will surely lead to a better understanding of who you are. I met a young classical guitarist once, who was quite amazing but spent his time learning the music of other guitarists. I told him that you need to stop listening to the music of others to advance to the next stage. Developing your own style. This was a big challenge for him. But he understood the meaning of what I was asking.

Today is an important day for Australia and New Zealand - ANZAC day. A day when we remember those who have fallen in battle.

So here is a problem I find difficult to deal with.

"Turn your swords into ploughs and your spears into shears" Isaiah 2:4 - It is impossible for a Christian to be a solider. Therefore any Christian Solider is surely lying and is just a Solider.

Story
Tagline
Power to the People
Introduction
I have recently started an electrical contracting business with my brother. Our motivation is to become involved in a very practical way in transitioning society towards renewable energy sources and overall lower power consumption. Prior to this I worked 27 years in the ICT and software industry.

This phase in my life is about the transition to an activity which will have a greater impact on society i.e. Renewable Energy, and more importantly the ability for people to generate their own power without being controlled by large corporations influenced by Government policy.
