> Hello Nick thanks for your positive reply.
No I dont think that ubf has totally changed at all. It would be a miracle if it had. My point really is that we have entered a new post Lee era where the beginnings of change might take place. I have observed the writings of apparently lower orders that encourage me to take a more optomistic view. Note this is different from saying change is happening. You are right, leaders dont change, they die or are replaced still with their original thinking.
What I mean by change is this. Change in its simplest form.
Take for example an organisation that is 100% bad, if it becomes only 99% bad that to me is a change. Not a big one , but still change. Who knows where it will end. I try to be an optimist.
I would now like to take some little time to explain to readers my method of thinking, and to why I sometimes take a different line.
University changed my thinking. It was in my final year. 1994-95. I make no apology for this I am glad it happened to me. Half of that year was spent studying the British Welfare System. This involved the reading of books from three different points of view.
1 The Marxist point of view.
2 The Social Democratic or Middle of the Road. P. O. V.
3 The Right Wing (Von Hayak) P.O.V.
Before that we did comparative welfare systems. Britain, Germany, Sweden and The USA.
I can honestly say university changed my way of thinking, and I never look at a situation from one point only.
I freely admit that this has at times made me a rather awkward individual, but this is the way I have become, and I would like people to realize this. We dont go to university to have the same person leave as the one who entered. It takes all sorts to make a world.
One other thing Nick , you commented on the fact that I never experienced abuse in ubf, nor have I acknowledged the fact. Here you are technically correct. I have however experienced widespread abuse but not within UBF . Now one thing that I have not been able to find is an abuseometer, all the shops here in Al Khobar are out of stock of them, so you will forgive me if for the moment I am unable to determine if the abuse I experienced was greater or less than that of UBF!
God Bless Tony
