If I cant change the circumstances then should I change the mindset?

As I was driving into work today in traffic a vehicle escorted by a police bike was driving through on the wrong side of the road. I had to nearly crash into a wall trying to avoid these guys. This was not the kind of escort which a minister has. This was just one lone police bike with two weak looking cops who would have been blown away by a gust of wind. And the car was not one of the posh ones which the ministers drive this made me conclude that who was being driven in this manner was a judge. I remember being told along time back how judges were overjoyed that the government decided to give them escorts and how they would not go anywhere without their escorts. It made me sad to realize that even people who are supposed to uphold the law are abusing it and behaving like third rate politicians. The past few days I have been absolutely dissapointed about the way this country is moving. Hooliganism. Lack of respect for the law. Drug smugglers and criminals in power. Surely the voting public cannot be blind. The final nail on the coffin for me was Merv the Perv being made the dputy minister of media. Isnt it like entrusting an anti smoking campaign to the chairman of the Tobacco Industry or worse. These situations made me wonder if I should seriously consider moving to another country as I am feeling like an alien in my own mother land. I also know that my opinion is not the opinion of the majority and it will never be. And that however much I rave and rant nothing will change. I have been thinking of writing this entry for many days now as the frustration kept bubbling inside me and it was the final act which happened this morning which made the words spill out. Well then I remembered what one of my mentors told me "If you cant change the circumstances then you should change the mindset" and thats what I am going to do for the time being at least. Long live the MR!!!!!!

Migration is the best option but if you are to stay it takes a change of mindset. A good washing out of the brain, so to speak.
