    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    Default Re: Planning for a New Future

    The BBC used to be one of the most reliable and trusted sources of news in the world. It has morphed into a "woke" producer of one sided propaganda. If anything or anyone does not support their preconceived view it is suppressed and ignored. That appears to be quite acceptable to those who believe whatever they are told. Like most people who can think for themselves I prefer to hear both sides of any story and make up my own mind what to believe.

    My comment was one about the BBC in general not any specific video.

    Well I watched the Video and came away concluding it was nothing more than poorly disguised Green Propaganda.

    Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    I think the point the video was trying to make is that judging everything by the almighty $$$ doesn't always get you where you want to go.
    For instance, it was revealed a few days ago that despite people in Australia being so much better off than us in NZ in ways such as pay, holidays, prices etc; NZers are actually happier.

    You can tell that for yourself - if we were more miserable, EVERYONE would go and live in OZ.

    As far as I can tell there are about 250,000 NZ's in Queensland alone, and 20,000 Aussies in NZ.

    Great country, great people Australians.
