About

Thanks for reading my blog and I hope that it helps you question what many take for granted.

I spent many hours reading in my childhood due to illness.
There was no TV then with DVDs and Play Stations still in the inventor’s minds.
I came to love the written word especially subjects about the mysteries of the universe and how things worked.
This created in me an inquiring mind which has grown ever stronger.

I followed a standard education and was conscripted into the Defence Force for two years which was the future prospect of any white South African male during that era. We were the pariah of the world because our politicians were foolish enough to put what all societies practise into their law books.

I pursued a career in security and safety which made me mindful of behaviours, body language and cultures.
My career and life caused me think about systems and society.
My job had taught me not take anything at face value when conducting investigations or searching for the root cause of an incident.
The reasons and excuses people made, especially those who had been caught doing something wrong, were fascinating.

The internet has brought countless sources of information to the general public much to my delight.
It has given me the opportunity to do the things I love most of all namely; reading, researching, questioning and writing.
Many things that were out of my reach are now at hand with blogging, new ideas and a global community a connection away.

My posts are designed to make you question, weigh your answers against facts and opinions, so that you can decide how to pull your own strings.
So many people believe they are in control of their lives but like in the film The Matrix, reality can be completely different.

We are made to be Gods but we walk as mere men.

Andre
Society can and does execute its own mandates: and if it issues wrong mandates instead of right, or any mandates at all in things with which it ought not to meddle, it practises a social tyranny more formidable than many kinds of political oppression, since, though not usually upheld by such extreme penalties, it leaves fewer means of escape, penetrating much more deeply into the details of life, and enslaving the soul itself.

John Stuart Mill, On Liberty
