    People with power/privilege, rarely give a damn about those without.
    Long time ago, this was very different.
    I always try to put myself in other people’s shoes, where possible.
    These days, we can’t afford our own shoes, let alone help others with theirs.
    Some of us try to, when and how we can. It’s the only way we survive.
    People aren’t “depressed”, they’re just sad, that life didn’t turn out the way they hoped.

    Thank you for the youtube videos 🙂

    I saw what journalists can do with stories many years ago, before the internet was invented. A friend was one of several witnesses to a small incident, and he happily answered a journalist’s questions about it, giving them the full and seemingly innocuous story. He bought the next day’s newspaper and opened it to read the article. Every fact that he had given was either reversed or else twisted. The only correct parts of the article were his name, address and age. This brought him no end of trouble including both verbal and written abuse, plus damage to his property. He complained to the newspaper, in a letter, but all they did was to run another article implying that he was a ne’er-do-well who had since denied any involvement in the incident. He ended up moving to a different town and changing his job. I took that as a salutary lesson and have never since knowingly given any journalist any newsworthy information. Journalists usually have one aim: Sell more newspapers. Nothing else matters. So, on principle, I have never bought another newspaper since that date, and never shall.
