Tory welfare policy is very blinkered and backward looking, any Govt looking to the future would take into account the effect on employment of advances in technology coupled with a growing population due to better medical care, in the very near future unless the way welfare is distributed to the population is re-envisioned taking into account the above factors, people are going to be at the mercy of poverty, starvation and disease on a massive scale, also the way work is incorporated into the population’s psyche needs to be addressed so to be unemployed is not seen to be somehow a failure or a burden to society.

The Earth is going through a dark age at the moment. Material possessions count more than a persons soul. Like children, humans are preoccupied with technological toys, which they believe will bring them riches and happinness. This shows the superficiality of human culture and a careless disregard for nature. In their greedy quest for more complex machines, humans are prepared to sacrifice almost anything – the natural environment, animals even other humans. The dreadful spectre of blowing up the world hardly makes humans falter in this headlong rush.
