Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Another View

Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Another View:

Isambard Kingdom Brunel is given far too much credit for the work done under him in my view. That, over emphasis on people like him, is what has stifled British industry today. Not only him of course, but many others also. It’s a form of cheating, and it’s an enormous hindrance to the minds of young men and women going into the workplaces now. It automatically produces an inferiority complex in young people, who think they already know, and discover they don’t know enough about it being teamwork.

I have not finished Fred Dibnah’s Age Of Steam yet, but the next couple of days should see me through it. It’s a wonderful work from a wonderful man. However it is a good example of what I have written above. For example: Just how much of the book was his own work? Certainly the interest in steam was Fred’s. His knowledge gathered over a lifetime of searching out steam  engines and parts yes. But the completed package with well finished books and DVD’s?

Too much is expected of individuals now. Take for another example the music of Motown. One man’s drive and leadership, but an awful lot of input from an awful lot of talented people.

At one point Brunel had around ten thousand men working for him, with dozens as draughtsmen. Were they all stupid? Not a bit. Those men could be pointed towards a mountain, and be expected to tunnel through it without supervision. Bridges the same. There is little planning to an arch, whether it is a bridge or part of a Cathedral. Once understood it is an easy concept to master, and build. Very simple.

Brunel was like a king who knew how to lead, but anything in his way would have also been in the way of several thousand capable men. It is what I have been trying to say for years. I, for example, could have made music. But package it? Not my job. A job for Christians in my case. After all, I work for Yeshua Christ.


About Gdicm

Gordon Davidson, I Care Music. (Gdicm) At present I am disabled. I have met Christ, and Saint Peter, and others and have been given a job to do by them. Party political democracy will never be a success for decent people anywhere. It empowers criminals, whose votes politicians need, and gives those criminals powers they should never have. It has brought transgressors to the forefront of every society. It could do nothing else if their votes are needed. Law and order is Bible preached self discipline, which no longer exists in the average person. For example: Would Gays or Lesbians be legal if politicians did not require their votes? No. Would it harm them to not be Gay? No. Only a single compulsory Christian Church can bring about fair equality. Let me build a proper religion, starting around Elgin Cathedral, Morayshire Scotland. Let democracy be done by the Church using God's laws as the guide. Gdicm music is on various streaming services.
