Have You Ever Wondered?

Have you ever wondered if that day will come? That day of all days when you’ll stay on the ground. That day when the fight will seem no longer worth fighting. That day, when it seems as if the unfairness of life will eventually break your spirit. Have you ever wondered? I have…

Have you ever wondered if the anal adherence to political correctness in the workplace is not just a different means of introducing discrimination. We, the privileged employees of the global giant are better than you, the lowly service providers. Have you ever wondered if it’s acceptable for common courtesy or downright good manners to give way to notions of superiority? I have…

Have you ever wondered if the bright young things of today’s modern rat race were ever taught any values by their parents? Maybe they were but then this new global ‘anything goes’ management style has robbed them of their appreciation of those long-lost values. Have you ever wondered if PC is not just an excuse for excess? I have…

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you place folk from previously repressed societies into this more open, diverse environment? Will they know how to cope with it all? At times it’s as if the slightest bit of power rushes to their heads… filling them with false levels of self-importance. Have you ever wondered? I have…

Have you ever wondered how long you can keep up your values even when you know your norms are regarded as archaic? Have you ever wondered if you shouldn’t just walk away? The old saying… the wheel turns… has meaning, does it not? Have you ever wondered when all this emphasis on the open door, everyone for themselves, my new system is better than yours, will come back to bite them in the butt? I have…

Have you ever wondered how long it will be before the next generation finds out their parent’s way of doing things was not that morally successful? Will they return to their grandparent’s ways of ethical, dignified behaviour or will they just perpetuate the mess? Have you ever wondered? I have…

Have you ever wondered how long it will take the world to realise that turning their back on the truth and principles good enough for their forefathers will inevitably lead to their downfall? Have you ever wondered how long the corporate world will continue raping the system without being suitably punished? Have you ever wondered? I have…

I think as long as basic fundamental values are ignored or trodden on that the malaise of unabated greed will outstrip the sensibilities of a free market capitalist system. Have you ever wondered if my views are correct? I have…

Roots and reflections? Is the tree strong if it's rooted in pollution?If the tree’s roots are firmly drinking form a polluted source can it remain strong? I don’t know, you tell me!

  1. Beautiful writing. I wonder about the same things you do… and with the same desire for a revival of basic fundamental values. Thank you for sharing. Michele

      Hi Michele,

      Yes, when you work at the EMEA HQ of a global giant you see things that I believe would send shivers down spines of the folk back home if they knew how the youngsters have let go of the old traditional values of their individual cultures, whichever they may be!

      Loudness, crassness, crudeness and downright insolent bahavior is excepted but boy, let you dare say something about someone’s sexual orientation or their race then you’re in for the high jump! Don’t dare challenge them about their behavior either… you stand a chance of getting sacked for your efforts!

      Thanks though for stopping by to read and comment! It is appreciated!

    I like the writing style in this post. Something very strong about it.

    When we stop wondering, when we stop having an awareness of all our faults, strenghts, and where we are going,about our part in things, then we`re in deep doo-doo. No matter where we live.
