Stop the world I want to get off
In the UK, since the days of Thatcher, have been told that Society doesn’t exist and that all Humans are simply motivated by self-interest. If you stop and think for a moment, its complete Bollox, but plenty of people bought into it anyway, attracted by the promise of “Bright Shiny Things”.
To hell with the Red Tape, the cost to the environment or the dwindling stocks of natural resources on this planet, because after all …
“You are worth it”
Its not for nothing that Thatcher and her Government spent millions on hiring Saatchi and Saatchi
The reasons for the “No Such Thing as Society” lie from Thatcher’s “Billionaires Club”* lie, was simple and clear cut.
Society clearly does exist and, in a Democracy, voting can often go the wrong way for the Billionaires Club. (Nit-picking stuff like the curbing of predatory Bankers, for example, or making polluters pay for the damage they cause). Anything which cuts into Billionaires Club* profits is clearly the “Nanny State” at work and all those poor billionaires have to suffer as a consequence.
The problem is that Western voting trends generally split 3 ways. Conservative/Republican and Labour/Democrat, usually about the same numbers of supporters in total but with a “Difficult” group in the middle.
This Middle group ranges from the Lib Dems or Greens, to the Monster Raving Loony Party and Mr Buckethead, and everything in between. This group also includes a sizeable number of people who don’t give a stuff about Politics and many who believe that it’s a rigged game, and wouldn’t enter a polling booth without a gun to their head. This situation means that any given Turnout is unlikely to exceed 70%, and even that depends on the weather on Polling Day
This is a problem for the Billionaires Club, who know they can count on the Con/Rep vote, but all the rest have to be “persuaded” (You can read what you like into that)
Once you destroy that sense of Society though, by repeating the lie often enough, the Billionaires Clubs get their millionaire helpers, (Industry and Media), to activate the Dog Eat Dog mode.
In this mode, a substantial number of people will happily vote for any old Ronnie, Dicky or Maggie that cuts their taxes and casts a blind eye to the billions slipping offshore into Billionaires back pockets. Before you can say ‘Steve Bannon’, you have destroyed a large part of society, with the Billionaires Club (0.001%) owning the planets Oil and Goldfields, the nicer green bits and most of the available Beach front property.
The rest of us get to live in Garden sheds that blow away in a hurricane, eat Chlorinated Chicken Nuggets, smoke ourselves to death and drink way too much alcohol to try and blot out the realities of life in the 21st century.
Mankind is not wholly self-interested though, and in many respects we are still a highly organised society that band together at the drop of a hat in times of adversity and hardship. While we have veterans from the military sleeping on our streets and a surplus of homeless penniless folk, there are thousands of ordinary folk are grouped up in the struggle to fight this crime on our people. They turn out in all weathers to help feed, clothe and shelter those less fortunate than themselves. They are not in it for money or fame, they are not interested in 5 minutes exposure on the TV, and they are not acting out of self interest either.
This is all despite the US and the UK being two of the richest nations on the Planet.
Recently there has been a spate of issues that show that things are coming to a head between the Very rich and the rest of life on this planet
A few examples off the top of my head:-
- Twisted teens recently beat up 2 gay women on a London Bus.
- We are getting used to the idea of having Boris Johnson as PM? Seriously??
- Jordan Peterson, Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and Nigel Farage each have more than 5 followers on Social Media?
- A young Somalian girl drowned in a river in the UK and police are investigating the claim she was led there for that purpose.
- In the US, “President” Trump gives a speech which mentions taking back the Airfields in the US Civil war (1860’s) Seriously?
- In the UK the 40 year old plan (aka Brexit) by the Right Wing, to sabotage the European union, has nearly succeeded
In the UK “What of Her Majesties Opposition”? The Tabloids cry. “We hear nothing from them”, and then again, ” The Labour party they are always sending mixed messages about Brexit? – Make your mind up Murdoch, Silence or Mixed messages? It cannot be both!
Jeremy Corbyn is a “Fucking anti Semite” according to Margaret Hodge, a woman who professes to be a Labour MP, but is in fact No Such Thing. The group inside the Labour party that this woman belongs to are almost exclusively disciples of Tony Blair and his New Labour clan.
Some call them Neoliberals, but I don’t trust that word, it was invented to put a coat of varnish on a type of politician who simply does what the Billionaires Club tell them to do. They are Conservatives in all but name, in fact Neo-cons is far more appropriate judging by the alacrity with which they go to war when Uncle Sam blows his bugle. (As I write this a group of UK Marines have boarded an Iranian Oil Tanker in the Mediterranean sea and I will put bets on Trumps adviser John Bolton organising the whole thing)
These “so called” Socialists don’t seem to mind Teenagers taking their own lives out of sheer despair of the future, or the rising frequency of knife fights and deaths, or Food Banks in UK cities.To this group of “So Called” Labour MP’s, the objective has yet to be reached and they will not rest until they have removed the twice democratically elected leader of the Party, and as many of his allies as they can.
I deliberately repeat the “So Called” Accusation for the benefit of those who think that it’s all in a Name, that isn’t so, it’s all in the actions and behaviours of people. For a person to even countenance accusing their twice elected Party Leader as a “Fucking anti-Semite” when his voting record clearly shows the exact opposite, is quite bad enough. Saying it loud and clear in the House of Commons and you have stepped beyond the pale into the twilight zone that separates Fascists from the rest of the human race.
Elements of the UK Labour party are so in love with Israel that they have their own special group named “Friends of Israel”, who have amplified this disgusting trope against Labour leaders until it’s completely out of control, but hey…maybe they are just doing it for a bit of a lark?
To digress a little, Boris Johnson used to have a bit of a lark writing fake stories about the EU and getting them published by his chums on the Telegraph.
The Telegraph loved it. So did the Tory Right. Johnson later confessed: ‘Everything I wrote from Brussels, I found was sort of chucking these rocks over the garden wall and I listened to this amazing crash from the greenhouse next door over in England as everything I wrote from Brussels was having this amazing, explosive effect on the Tory party, and it really gave me this I suppose rather weird sense of power.’
Back to our Friends of Israel in the Labour party, I dont think these manifestations are ‘a bit of a lark’, do you:-
- “Friends of Israel”? Why stop at Israel, true Socialists are Friends of everybody everywhere surely?
- The chief method of attack is the use of Antisemitism on Labour stalwarts that have a lifelong history of fighting AS and Racism with an impeccable voting history to prove it (Unlike the attackers themselves). This is Propaganda Book 1..Guess who wrote it?
- The Leader of Israel, Mr Netanyahu, has been waging a cowardly and vile attack on the civilians of Palestine, and specifically targeting children, medics and Press agents.
- Mr Netanyahu has proclaimed long and loud that he is not only leader of Israel, but leader of Jews everywhere in the world. (Note, there are literally Millions of Jews worldwide that do not share that view).
- Norman Finkelstein and Noam Chomsky say it with much more authority and knowledge than I, not to mention that they have far more clout by being Jewish whereas I am not.
- Meetings have taken place between officials of the London Israeli Embassy and certain Labour MP(s). Large sums of money were mentioned in connection with attacks on certain politicians and civil servants. It was filmed, but the UK press don’t care about evidence these days.
- US War hawk and ex CIA Director Mike Pompeo has publicly announced that the US doesn’t like Mr Corbyn and will do all in his power to ensure he never becomes PM.
- The BAP (British-American Project), a right-wing outfit founded in 1985, and hiding under a thin layer of Liberal airbrushing was set up by Nick Butler, J Howard Pew and Rupert Murdoch. (Liberals? I dont bloody think so). A Labour MP, in the shape-shifter form of Ruth Smeeth, is married to Michael Smeeth, a member of the executive body of BAP. Who could have guessed?What is generally not known is that Ruth Smeeth was identified by Wiki-leaks, via a US embassy diplomatic cable, as a “strictly protect” – US informant. Smeeth has attacked the Party leader on numerous occasions. (This cost Marc Wadsworth his membership with more AS accusations) and is no more a socialist than Senator McCarthy was a communist. Further slanderous attacks have been waged on others , notably the recent debacle over Chris Williamson
I think that should be enough for the reader to get an idea where all the shit flinging is coming from.
The UK Labour party has been under attack from Vested Interests since WW2, and until recently these attacks were from outside the party. Now the enemy is inside the party and trying desperately to hollow it out. The Blairite faction are not socialists in any real sense of the word, and in fact they constitute a Trojan virus, and it was propagated by those same Vested Interests, The Billionaires Club
The accusations of Antisemitism made by certain MP’s within Labour against Jeremy Corbyn and Chris Williamson have not been proven, nor will they ever be, they are totally false and the evidence to the contrary is overwhelming.
The UK Labour party is a Democratic Socialist party, and its is built on strong principles like the pursuit of Truth, Peace, Justice, Health and Well-being for all, coupled with a refusal to accept Fascism or Racism of any form. This list is home made by the way, I made it up, but it has certainly got some of the elements that I and millions of others would expect to see forming the main pillars of a truly Democratic Socialist Party.
The old “Broad Church” attitudes must go, they no longer suit their purpose and are wide open to exactly the sort of viral attack that Labour is fighting off now.
I would like to see our politicians held accountable for their words and deeds and subject to criticism and discipline if they dont deliver what they signed up to do.
Why is there no Party constitution that defines the principles expected of them,and requires that they sign their names to that constitution? In the 21st Century, why are we undecided on what is correct and what is not?
In 2016, Around 100 so called Labour MP’s abstained from a vote to withdraw UK (Tory) support for Saudi Arabian warfare against the Yemen, which continues to this day, and during which time has seen thousands of Yemeni civilians slaughtered. “Truth, Peace, Justice, Health and Well-being for all” I dont bloody think so, but hey…Arms deals make money and bugger the poor brown people on the other side of the world.
Labour MP’s? Prove it!
I was going to go into more detail but a red mist of anger is engulfing me, luckily I have been distracted by somebody drawing my attention to this article by Jonathan Cook.
Much of what I had planned to write here is in Mr Cooks great piece already and I see no sense in further wasting either my time or his.
It gives me great pleasure to hand you over to him, please look, its a really good piece.
After WW2, and the Roosevelt New Deal in the US, Big business saw this as the thin end of the socialist wedge and set out to destroy all vestiges of the Socialist “Disease”…..worldwide.
One tool they built to deliver the endgame, was the Trilateral Commission (The 3 sides were US, Europe, Japan), the brainchild of David Rockefeller.
He put Zbigniew Brzezinski at the head of it and set him loose to create the New World order (1973 style)
The vehicle they used was a report they commissioned from Samuel P Huntington and is entitled The Crisis of Democracy (PDF available online)
The rest as they say, is History, and future reports in The Dangerous globe will look into this in more detail
