Sit Ye Down and Mardle...

It Is Time For Some Serious
Conflabs At The Mardling Seat.
by Nick Ashton, CEO/CIO, CommSmart Global Group

When was the last time you sat down and had a good old serious discussion? No holding back, laying it all on the table on how you feel, when was it?  

Really it is that long!

You need a good old Mardle!  I lived in Norfolk, England some many moons ago and one village, had a Mardling Seat, I think it was Ludham or Mundesley, where locals would go, sit and when joined by others, discussed the problems of the world.  It was like getting it off your chest and expressing how you really felt.  The way people are morons or governments were a donkey's rear ends.  The real down to earth things that need to be talked about.  The whole silly problems of the world have been argued, discussed and solved on the now many Mardling Seats of Norfolk, England.

You need a Mardling Seat in your city, where you can go and share with a small group of four or five, the daily rigmarole of life and why we have to change now, or all be swallowed up by the insanity of deception.

Tell you what, I will start and you can follow.  

So Sit Ye Down and Mardle...

To the point, this city, any city is going to hell in a hand basket!  Once upon a time, the inner city problems were just that, in the center of the city and only a few blocks of problems.  It was contained and dealt with according.  Now, it stretches for tens, if not hundreds of miles and never seems to end.  The problems are more than a blight, they are a deep penetrating stain on all of us alike.

Sweeping the issues under the carpet only causes a lump in the carpet and we are all tripping over it, basically ignoring the impending doom.  City leaders, politicians, business leaders and down to earth citizens have tripped and done nothing for too long!

Where is the PrideRespect, and Trust in us all?  
  • Can it be clawed back?  
  • Can we pick up the pieces and change for the better?  
  • Do we just keep kicking the can down the road to another neighborhood and make it their problem?
Passing law after law, making, even more, laws regarding the laws already on the books, it is insanity extraordinaire!

PreachersPoliticians, and Ego-Centered Businessmen are not what is needed or required.  It is common folks who CareConsider and Challenge the broken social system that are the only ones who, as a cohesive team, can and will make the difference.  Importantly they can organize in a spirited way.  

I suppose my thoughts go back to World War II and the bombing of London and how from the Royals down, everyone fought for the pride from within, to overcome the adversity and be able to lift themselves from the rubble of tragedy.

Folks, this is worse than the days of bombs and bullets from an outside enemy, it is attacking us all from within.  The ignorance is standing on the horizon looking down on the commotion, confusion and sheer desperation that is crying from within our hearts and souls.  

Who in their right mind thought that Detroit would fall?

The leadership is broken on all sides and like Lemmings, we are being lead to fall or be pushed over a cliff, committing social suicide.  

Hope left decades ago and with heaviness we drag our sorry arses through the day, lying to ourselves that it will be sorted out in the end.  People pop pills to sleep, wake up, work and be happy.  Trying to forget that outside their four walls they call home if they are lucky to have a home, is a battlefield of despair.  Dead, dying and confused people who really have nowhere to go.  A mindless spiral of dead-end democracy.

Which side of the insanity are you and I really on?  

There is a path out of this diabolical mess and it will take a simple yes or no.

Which is?

It is not religion, unions or some cult or sect, it is the pure heartfelt act of doing something for yourself, others and a possible future of prosperity.  

It is about caring...

I simply repeat an earlier statement:

Where is the PrideRespect, and Trust in us all?  
  • Can it be clawed back?  
  • Can we pick up the pieces and change for the better?  
  • Do we just keep kicking the can down the road to another neighborhood and make it their problem?

Your Turn!

So Sit Ye Down and Mardle...
