A DUTY TO BE POSITIVE


Carlos is Moraymint’s contrarian; in that sense he’s about to do me a big favour.  Let’s be honest, I’ve devoted perhaps a little too much blog space (understatement) to explaining how and why I think we’re at one of history’s great ‘turning points’.  I argue – and will probably continue to argue – that we’re living […]

WHERE’S THIS HEADING?


Pour Yourself a Beer Pour yourself a beer or something before you start reading this post; it’s a ‘big yin’ (big one) as we say here in Scotland. What’s a Young Person Supposed to Do?

ENERGY – REALITY INTRUDES


Since around the end of the last century, and certainly within the first few years of the 21st century it seemed clear to me that the only game in town for the coming 25 years – and quite possibly for the next 50 years – would be energy; specifically, mankind’s insatiable appetite for energy, exacerbated […]

SOMETHING STRANGE IS HAPPENING – PART I


Essay # 1 It’s the second decade of the 21st century and something strange is happening to our society; strange and potentially threatening.  Incidentally, don’t get hung up on that word “threatening”; we’ll end this essay on a comforting note.  If I’m right to declare this then I want you, my children, to have some […]
