I just want to enjoy my life

..watch my kids grow, go to places, wear nice clothes, listen to music, go to the movies, laugh with my friends, drive a comfortable car,

buy whatever is placed in front of me by advertisers and merchandisers,

what’s on TV or goes viral on social media.

I’m not bothered about the future, or the past,

other worlds beyond the horizon,

the spirits of the departed, the animal world, the wild, the lost, the suicidal,

or anything that interrupts my happy life – unless that is, it appears on facebook.

Then I will ooh and aah along with the herd, and even send £10 to help a poor person in dire need.


In this world that we now ‘live’ in, individual thought beyond main or social media is tantamount to insanity.

Confined inside this intellectual monoculture, we are all incredibly vulnerable as the predators bunch us into a tighter and tighter corner ready to strike.

The sky above fills with trails each morning and evening, trails which turn into clouds.  I don’t care.

I don’t want to look up from my gadget.  My smartphone puts 6 volts a metre into my baby’s brain and body.  That’s not my problem either.


We allow corporate medicines of dubious effect to be injected into our children’s bodies,

wrecking their nervous and immune systems.  We feed them processed foods and drinks as it’s convenient to do so,

laced with toxins and with little nutritional value.  Our diesel cars spew out nitrous oxide and particulates causing asthma and yet more ill health.


5G is coming next, which will accelerate illness and social collapse even faster.  Suicide will increase, birth defects, infertility, cancers, diseases of the nervous system,

But I don’t care.  I don’t want to talk about it.

People who do are just conspiracy theorists.

My children’s lives are not my responsibility.

The collapse of democratic politics is of no concern to me, just a form of annoying entertainment.

I just want to enjoy my life…..

    Brilliant! And so typical of the way that the modern herd thinks.Or should that be, doesn’t think at all?

    Thanks Pete. People have resistance to change – and the more money they have, the more they resist, and the less open their minds are. That’s not to advocate poverty, but to identify a problem with so-called success. It bears the seeds of its own destruction.

    Having read your excellent biography, Angels & Devils, it is very clear to me that this is not a trap that you have fallen into Tap! You have clearly been very successful in business, and have not ever been short of money by the sounds of. Nor have you ever been resistant to change, far from it, as your fascinating book reveals in some detail.

    You’ve led quite a life, in many respects unconventional and very varied, in others conventional and consistent. Your own children came unconventionally late in life. Better late than never I am sure you would say. [Mine came much earlier and I’ve been a grandfather for nearly a decade now]

    I very much enjoyed the whole book, and I particularly enjoyed the final chapters on spirituality [23.The Unexpected] and how the world really works [24.Awakening]. You give some great advice in those chapters. Advice that will be useful to anyone who reads it and particularly those that follow it up with their own research. I was disappointed when the book ended tbh, which is always a good sign

      great review. Thanks Pete. It’s either too much or too little, you are right. I get comments like ‘why didn’t you write a chapter about such and such?’. 300 pages in printed version is enough! Printer promises delivery of book June 5th. Then it’s available through this blog and generally hopefully in a few shops as well.
