My Social Media Life..What you need to know

I respect everyone views online especially those who disagree with me because discussion creates education for both parties involved. I can be contradictory and I am willing to change my view on many issues.
I appreciate you all wanting to connect with me and I’m sure after reading my blogs you can see I’m a very troubled person.
I see the world very clearly and it scares me. I have friends of all faiths and orientation and as people; I love and respect them all.
Minds can never fully connect with each other but music always does and music is where I am talented;  rather than in my communications and views which are direct, to the point. I’m not one to beat around a subject I’m passionate about although i hold my tongue all the time if it’s not important to me.
My way of direct expression in the real word is not so socially cool but this is me, what more can I do? I could say nothing in order that I can be the nice guy or just because I want to sell records, People tell me I alienate people with my opinion but I always reply that I can only ever be real. People have to want to buy my music because of the music not me. If I put them off, that’s just how it is, I’m not a puppet I won’t ever be one and honestly I don’t think I am extreme or horrible in any of my opinions.
Maybe you can see why I stay underground and don’t do much PR.
I actually don’t fit into this world very well i am the square peg and the world is round.
I made a decision to be on here and try and make a difference with my opinions I’m not far right or far left I don’t fit into any category because both side have good and bad point. My stance is always based on people. I believe in working and being paid for my work. but I also believe in protecting the most venerable in society and equal right for all who want to fit into our society.
I see people first and love is the key to everything in my world but if I am told that I have to be tolerant of other peoples choices and opinions then they have to also be tolerate of mine. (Its a two way street not a one way street) this is where religion and tolerance clashes with me.

I see a bigger picture than most (the world orders life in layers its called ‘The layer cake”)  I am a middle class /working class guy i have been successful so possibly at the top end of this layer. I want to stay this way. I don’t like bling or hype it disgusts me when people belittle others with their money.
I have a lot of time to think about everything and look into everything. It torments me what I see and connect in the world. I see what other people in higher layers are doing to suppress those below.I know religion is the big player of intolerance and war along with money and greed.
I don’t have any of their power just time to see the real world forces.
There are four principles in this world that I will never let go of in my life and I will defend these issues to my last breath.
Below is where my moral compass sits, I can not force people to agree with me if they don’t want to but I won’t waver on these issues because they are at my core and my passion.
The 4 issues I will defend until I die:-
1. A humans full right to be or love whoever they want to be or love (LGBT) & (Over 18 applies) Love is rare, if you find it, you have found the most important meaning to happiness and every human has the right to find love.
2. Full and equal rights for women I would add them to the LGBT but people would be offended but the same applies as above respect for others choices and equality for all.
3. Freedom for all old people over 65 to live the rest of their life well and financially worry free. They have done their time and need respect and caring. a society is judged by how they treat their old.
4. Finding a way to change the worlds view of religion which I believe needs to be accepted but also curtailed. It should be seen as a mental illness that can be ‘an ok idea for some and a radical nutter idea to others’ but always it’s nothing more than an idea. I believe that Religion is no longer relevant in a modern educated world. Religions should not have the global power to change governments and the lives of others it should be penned into it own world and not enforce its ways on other the rest of the world.
My concept of Religion as a Mental illness defined :
If you have an invisible friend who you believe is watching over you and telling you how to live, eat, dress, and how many times you should pray to him all in oder to meet the invisible friend when you die.

It’s ok to have a mental illness I have one. I suffer from depression. I think we all have mental issues and most people can cope with them on a day to day basis so it’s nothing to feel shunned from society but it does need to be forced on others,
I can no longer get life insurance because of my depression I can not fly a passenger plane for the same reason. Religion should not have the power to change the world laws because it’s based on an invisible being that doesn’t exist outside of peoples minds.
I could list tons of mental illnesses you would not normal think twice about.

That Obsessive Cleaning Disorder or Dyslexia they don’t actually make you ill (as in sick) but the brain is working a little different. It’s a mind issue hence a mental issue. Some are mild and un-noticeable like Religion and it’s rituals and some are extreme and clearly a problem like Religion and it’s rituals…see what I did there hope it makes sense.
I would like to point out that the 4 things I defend I am actually not associated with personally I am not a woman or LGBT or Religious.
But all are at my core and my core is about LOVE and Equality. Anyone or organisation that attacks these rights for all is an enemy of the human race.
I know my layer in the cake of life actually makes my battle seem futile. But I also know that if you can start a small idea in people minds it can be like a crack in the wall blocking our way. It can over time run right through and eventually cause the wall to crumble and then there will no longer be a wall but a pile of dust leaving more places to rome and discover with an open mind and sense or wonder.
This is why I rant!
The only time I am truly at peace is when the music carries me away into my word of love and unity.
