Devizes Melting Pot

“Protection. Conservation. Restriction. Deep ecology. Give me deep technology any day. They don't scare me. "I'm damned if I'll crawl, my children's children crawl on the earth in some kind a fuckin' harmony with the environment. Yeah, till the next ice age or the next asteroid impact." (Moh Kohn, The Star Fraction)/ "This is the fight between God and the Devil. If His Grace is with God, he must join me, if he is for the Devil he must fight me. There is no third way" King Gustavus Adolphus

Face Time

If you say work 7 days a week, for the first couple of weeks you get extra production but after that production drops off because you are tired.

My father semi retired from working for Hotchief UK 4 years ago,, he was Company Secretary/Director but he was trained as a quantity surveyor .

He now only works 3 days a week as a freelance quantity surveyor, pays as well as his old job but no stress and it allows him to take more holidays, my father goes abroad 4 times a year mainly skiing and walking.

In Britain we have 20 days paid holidays a year by law. Plus bank holidays.

Europe benefitted from a large scale workers movement.
