My Dad’s Too Sad To Blog

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMy Dad’s too sad to blog because of corruption. He knows of a terrible abuse of power that has had devastating consequences.

He’s too sad to blog because of injustice. The sense of injustice is overwhelming when he knows the truth and can see how the truth can be inconvenient to those in power.

He’s too sad to blog because of the broken system. A system that protects itself to serve  and reward loyal disciples.

He’s too sad to blog because of transparency. A self-serving system that lacks transparency.

He’s too sad to blog because of accountability. Powerful individuals are given unchecked power and are accountable to nobody.

He’s too sad to blog because of democracy. He sees how our democracy is being eroded and the balance of power lies in the hands of nameless executives.

My Dad is too sad to blog because of corruption.

  1. Dear Alison, please give him my love and my sense of admiration for him. I wish he were not sad and discouraged because his readers always loved what he wrote , knowledgeable and a tender sense of humour which always defeated corruption since he always told the truth. And that is the way to win over the cowards ! Big hug from Uruguay! Maria
