#Corbyn vs the Media and the Snakes #ge17 – A brief history of the Media Lying About Corbyn and the Infilltration of real Labour with ‘New’ Labour aka Tory-lite.

Okay… I wrote the following. I have a good grasp of political history but I don’t own a TV or read newspapers so please feel free to correct me if I’m wrong. I reserve the right to delete the whole thing if it generates negativity.

_

As far as I can tell the media has been calling Corbyn a weak leader for years even though he’s a strong leader with alot of support, so that has become the public perception.

AND it’s extra confusing because he has the core values of ‘original’ Labour, socialism which is essentially sharing, but he does have conflict within his party from the people who came in with and since Tony Blair in the 90s. But Tony Blair basically had Tory values, and snuck them into ‘New’ Labour so the conflict is unfair.

And on top of that none of the parties have a consensus on Brexit. The Tories are the only party apart from UKIP that want 100 percent to get out so all the other parties are confused about what they’d do if they won. Because none of the other main parties are 100 percent in or out and if we did decide to stay in Europe we’ve been so rude and obnoxious they’d probably tell us to fuck off. Essentially Theresa May seems to have

called an election because the press has done a good job of making all the other parties look weak and have literally lied about Corbyn‘s lack of support.

 

He doesn’t have support in his own party because it got infiltrated by snakes and Thatcherites under Blair and New (fake) Labour. BUT he has loads of grassroots support from the actual public who turn up to his speeches and rallies and the thousands that joined Labour just to vote for him. So the lack of support is accurate in a way but he lacks support from people who supported the war criminal Tony Blair. BUT the weak leadership claim is a lie, it’s bullshit cos a weak leader would have run away from the snakes, the lying media, and the attacks on everything from his cheap suit (🤔) to his front garden (🤔) years ago.

 

On another level though I’m fully confused about this. On at least 3 levels.

1 – if they count the votes does it matter because most people are manipulated by The Sun to vote Murdoch’s way. Is your vote gonna make a difference among the millions of manipulated sheep?
2 – how much are the strings pulled behind the scenes early? Labour didn’t win for years until it was New Labour and Tony Blair was leader – and he pushed Thatcher’s Tory agenda.
3 – the illusion, on the most extreme side of the conspiracy theories – do they even count the votes at all or is it all a scam?
4 – on the personal integrity level – does voting make me complicit in a system I fundamentally disagree with to be governed by laws that are amoral and unfair? Or is not voting asking for it. Either way it feels like I’m saying “go ahead walk all over me”. Basically I think the whole system has to change on such a fundamental level that the only practical way to do what I think needs to be done is start a new political party, AND a new religion, and stand for office based on principles of love and unity and say the sort of things that will either get me killed or sectioned. Just voting might not be enough for me.

BUT Tory austerity is killing people.
If all of us vote and nothing changes, then we know for sure. Then we can consider a revolutionary change of tactics.

 

Basically beyond voting I think the best thing you can do for the planet is move somewhere your taxes do not support austerity and war and live a life more sustainably as an example of a positive alternative, I dunno, maybe grow some olive trees and agave trees and collect spring water.

 

Okay, I haven’t ranted like this for months. Partly because I have a job now but i’m on half term. Partly because an election was declared and that always takes me out of enjoying the now and into indulging in the story.
I will continue to educate from my perspective but you vote for who you want, I don’t want to know what you’re doing. And it’s far too sunny to argue on Facebook.
At the end of the day it’s still be the change. If I stay in this country I’ll either have to start a new political party or a new religion so I can stop paying taxes into a system that robs from the poor to give to the rich (austerity and NHS destruction) and spends those taxes on bombing brown children for oil and gas (we shouldn’t still be using) while refusing to allow refugees from the countries we’ve destabilised for oil and gas.
But I’m not currently earning enough to leave realistically. So I’ll stop telling people what to do while I work out how to be the change I want to see.
Rather than bitching and spreading my frustration it may be more beneficial to simply express the truth as I see it and remind you – it’s sunny outside xxx

LOVE AND UNITY – Post Brexit backlash, safety in the #safetypin and thank Heavens above for #‎postreflove‬

The elite use the media to divide and conquer
Leaving us with solutions to ponder 

Divide and conquer only works if we let it
The system is imperial even when it’s metric

One planet, one air we breathe no separation
Regardless of class and regardless of nation.

While immigrants get blamed for our financial situation
instead of blaming bankers and politicians they blame immigration.

And blame immigrants for terrorism instead of Tony Blair
– an illegal war killed thousands of women and children over there.

If we fight with each other we’re just fake victims of a fake system
manipulated in to fanning the flames of racism.

Paradox said “The puppet show is far from over” 
I said sometimes catharsis comes when you’re far from sober.

I had my strings pulled til I was attacking every Brexit voter
When just the day before I said either way we’re ruled by a provoker.

But Paradox reminded me of The Manufacture of Consent by Noam Chomsky
The predicatable manipulation by the media, Emil Blonksy

Is less of an abomination, Archons ruling each nation
but we rule ourselves so rest, your thoughts and emotions change with patience

Paradox said “People have ALWAYS voted based on media propaganda, 
self interest and fear.” Maybe every voter’s a gambler.

He added that our conditionings’s so all encompassing 
it’s absurd 
to be expecting progressing or justice from people voting while they’re stressing.

Not everyone who voted leave is led by racism…
And not every one who voted to stay isn’t…

One planet, one air we breathe no separation
Regardless of class and regardless of nation.

While immigrants get blamed for our financial situation
instead of blaming bankers and politicians they blame immigration.

I need to stop arguing the blame, find solutions with patience…
We need peace, love, unity and education.

‪#‎postreflove‬

{UNFINISHED but it could all be irrelevant within a day or two at the rate things are changing so here’s version 1…}

(Chris Paradox you get quoted, but it’s slightly out of context, I can rewrite it so you don’t.)

 


 

This morning (28th June 2016) due to all the post-referendum racist attacks the hash tag ‪#‎postrefracism‬ was trending. But this afternoon in retaliation the hashtag ‪#‎postreflove‬ was trending sharing images and stories of multicultural tolerance and acts of kindness. SPREAD LOVE PEOPLE.

Beyond that – not everybody who voted out is a racist. Some of them were well informed activists who want to see power decentralised and I can see their point. But they’re point was hijacked by racists and ignorant people.

Anyway, so much more I could say, did say and deleted. Spread love people, divide and conquer only works if we let it.

One planet, one air we breathe, no separation.


 

Solution-based thinking. ‪#‎postreflove‬

So finding blame and finger pointing is a pretty pointless process, but you need to get to the roots of the problems to solve them. How can we communicate the truth of love and unity over the lies of fear, and divide and conquer. What am I on about?
Well mainly the fact that immigrants have been blamed for the country’s financial issues when politicians and banks have imposed austerity and the tax avoided by corporations could have paid for the NHS many times over.
So my question is how do we communicate this idea to the manipulated masses? How do we communicate the truth to more people than The Sun and The Mail can communicate propaganda? I’m serious, a ‘zine, a blog, a national newspaper? Short and simple memes? Can we get it down to a catchy couple of sentences and/or a simple image we can all share? Do we need a crowdfunder to pay for leaflets and/or billboards?
Democracy is great yeah, but if the population is misinformed, manipulated, and straight lied to how do they know what to vote for? Which begs a bigger question – is there a better political system or do we just have to accept that a significant portion of the population is racist. How far are we from the Nazis if we simply accept that?
Consciousness is evolving. I have to believe we can do better than racism, trusting politicians who have been proven to lie to us and trusting mainstream newspapers who have been proven to lie to us. Any ideas? Information is spreading faster than ever before. But those who seek to control have a headstart in spreading information. How do those who seek the benefit of all catch up? Any ideas?
Personally I write raps. I write poems. I write blogs. I write rants on facebook. I try to change the world one heart at a time. But things feel intense right now and right now that doesn’t feel like it does enough fast enough. Maybe that’s the limited perception of my ego, maybe I’m playing my role and this is the way things have always been and will always be. The rich get richer and use the media to divide and conquer. Maybe I’m arrogant to think I know better, maybe I’m deluded to think WE can do better. But I have to believe we can do better than racism, trusting politicians who have been proven to lie to us and trusting mainstream newspapers who have been proven to lie to us. I have to believe we can communicate facts that promote love over lies that promote fear.

Do I Blame David Cameron?

Do I BLAME David Cameron? I see a system that raises man-children, that argue in the House of Commons in such an immature way that, honestly, no teacher would allow their students to behave. Shouting over each other, trading insults instead of policies. If you study politics you study the history of nations robbing each other and the ruling classes exploiting the poor. They probably think that’s ‘normal’, traditional even. Do I know what it’s like to be raised as part of the ruling class? Programmed since birth to believe you were born to rule? No, I don’t know what it’s like. But I’m human so I look for reasons and sometimes we look for blame, even though – who am I to lay blame?

Let me share something that may alter your perception.

My brother went to a public school (ironic that private schools are called public schools). I did not (he was clever and older so he got some kinda scholarship that I was probably not going to get and when asked I didn’t mind at all, I didn’t want to grow up with posh kids. They weren’t all posh and some of them are my friends now.)
Me and my school friends went to school with rucksacks. Cos they were practical bags. My brother and his school friends HAD to take briefcases to school in the sixth form. Because they were being groomed to take briefcases to work. Not rucksacks. Not tool-boxes (but plumbers earn bare cash these days.) Briefcases.

That’s just one level of programming, who knows what else happens in Bullingdon Boys clubs and maybe understanding and empathy will turn to full on sympathy if the reason Jimmy Saville was friends with all those Tories is because there is another level of abuse going on. Do I blame Cameron. Actually yes. But more fool me really, there’s probably nothing to blame but an insidious system of archonic control that is less powerful than any one of us and alot less powerful than all of us together. I know that I don’t know what experiences Cameron or his Tories have had that has taught them to live like this, I know from inquiry into the nature of my own mind that blame is a pointless endeavour compared to finding solutions. But I know that science says time is an illusion too yet I perceive time. Sometimes what I know and what I feel just don’t come together in a logical way.

Kicking David Cameron out won’t make much difference if he’s replaced by another Tory. Getting Corbyn in would make a huge difference but the difference would be bigger with proportional representation of the vote.

I like to visualise a world where Jeremy Corbyn and Bernie Sanders are the rulers of the (hahaha) Free World (and don’t get assassinated by the military industrial complex, world bank and/or fossil fuel interests).

So yeah, if I had a David Cameron pinata I might kick it’s inanimate papier mache head in. But what’s that got to do with the price of oil? Trick question.

I still see the issue is education. Educating people about politics so they can’t get tricked into voting for posh English Nazis again, but perhaps more importantly educating people in the nature of the mind / reality? So I do what I can, write songs, write facebook posts, write blogs. I still get angry that people have their heads in the sand. But the more you know the madder you get, ignorance is bliss – maybe I’m just jealous. Save the children.

So yeah, I kinda do blame David Cameron, his policies are based on a lie and so dangerously close to Nazi Germany it would make patriotic Englishmen shiver if they knew or understood (apart from the neo-Nazis). But it’s probably not his fault, and the blame comes from both the projection of a psychological need for a simple answer and the simple convention of having a figure head for a political party. But he’s just one head of the Hydra, that’s groomed, abused, then controlled by richer men who make money from war, banking, and oil. Is there a way to stop all that?

Stop fighting other countries for resources we don’t need? Seriously. Yeah, war makes money in and of itself, bullets cost money and we pay for them (enjoy your tax returns.) But wars for oil? While the sea levels are rising. It’s dumb. It’s so dumb. If I was an alien, I’d be like – “you guys are dumb.”

So Saint Nikolai Tesla (discovered wireless free electricity {documented fact but it was suppressed}), Saint Elon Musk (promoted electric cars and named the company Tesla after Nikolai) and Saint Paul Stamets, (the guy with the 6 ways Mushrooms Can Save The World Ted Talk here) can all get a round of applause for aiming for a better world and actually presenting solutions to the current problem of blowing each other up for things we don’t need. And I’ma throw myself in there too, I can get a round of applause for bigging them up, but I won’t call myself Saint cos I ain’t that arrogant.

So yeah, I kinda do blame David Cameron, but it’s probably not his fault. I’m gonna assume he was groomed and abused (no amount of vodka would make me screw a pig.) Let’s talk solutions. But if we’re not building guillotines can we at least kick him out?

ps (alot of people do blame David Cameron…) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BTD4wZTDZrQ

pps okay, I’m done with politics for now. I’m gonna bounce and watch Archer, wipe my 3rd eye clean of this pig-fukry. BUT I’m not done waffling cosmic for the weekend, trust me, watch this outter/inner space.

I’m really done with politics for now. But if you’re not, if you’re in to conspiracy facts and want to win some arguments with some documented evidence, or if you just want to know what kinda effed up world you were born into – here it is. You’re welcome.

More 0pen with Less Judgment

This… this has been brewing…

There, but for a lack of education in the nature of the mind, go I. We are not taught to love ourselves, in fact we are assaulted every day by advertising that preys on our insecurities. We are not even taught how to breathe properly (unless you have a yoga teacher or chi gung teacher in infancy). We are not taught how to love each other, indeed I suspect that the so-called elite are taught from a young age to have contempt for what they consider to be the lower classes (in fact we’re taught to perceive class and then taught to hate and compete with other classes rather being taught to see individuals with no defined separation). And I cannot expect everyone to be inclined to think outside the box for fear of being ostracised. So how can I blame anyone for anything?

I started 2015 with a very neutral viewpoint. After focussing on creativity and being motivated by politics for many years – pro-peace and pro-sustainable (read anti-war and anti-capitalist if you’re still running those operating systems.) This severely limited the jobs I would work in, the ways I would live and even the people I would hang out with. Certain political points of view would anger me, and I couldn’t work with people who would anger me. Then 2014 depression came and by 2015 I was numb, almost as a subconscious act of self preservation I became numb in the awareness of the alternative I can experience as extreme empathy, it hurts. I no longer had well defined political opinions or a moral stance, every question on the subject was met with – “it’s complicated”, or “I don’t wanna talk about it”. I didn’t want to be restricted anymore, but I wasn’t sure where I was willing to compromise, where I might feel I was selling out and where I might feel I was merely growing up.

I’m still not entirely sure. I am more open now. But some lines are being re-drawn (just in pencil instead of pen this time).

Somewhere mid-2015 I became less numb. Refugees. War. Racism created by fear promoted by a sensationalist media. What I perceived to be avoidable refugees running from avoidable wars for resources we shouldn’t even be using anymore because oil is unsustainable and there are lots of sustainable solutions that would cost the oil companies a fraction of their profits to implement. Why does this not happen? Because those are fractions of billions, and a corporation’s only responsibility is to make profit for the shareholders.

So… People are dying every day due to our tax money funding unnecessary wars. At one point in my life I was so emotionally and ideologically opposed to being any part of that I dropped out of society – no rent, no council tax, no bills, no JSA, no address – nada. Those lines got rubbed out and re-drawn a few times since then. I still think it’s a valid stance, but it’s not one that serves me now, not when I can see how much good I can do with money and a stable home. (And quite frankly I was sick of being cold and feeling unappreciated.)

So I had a few powerful conversations in 2015 that helped me see a new goal. Kanada of Embercombe in particular reignited a fire in me that I had allowed to dim. When I attended a talk she did as part of the talk she recited a Hopi prophecy I had heard many times before – it had inspired alot of my closest friends – but the passion and the context and the synchronicity of it in that moment made me cry and made me care again. Numbness be gone. I was strong enough for empathy again. It made me celebrate the tribe I had found when I “let go of the sides” in the rapid flow of change. It made me grateful that I had gone an unconventional route and that I had prioritised my principles, that I knew where to find spring water, that I was living where I was living at least for now, harnessing the right relationships, that I was doing things that fulfilled me creatively as they would later fulfill me financially. Some of those principles had fallen a a little by the way-side but it was enough to make me feel, yeah, I’m proud of who I am, what I do and why I do it. But if I didn’t allow mainstream society to fill me with doubt, if I didn’t allow anxiety to hold me back I could do so much more. I have big ideas. It made me cry. Tears of guilt and tears of pride, conflicting powerful emotions.

I have recently had a conversation over New Years Eve that re-clarified my political perceptions. I don’t have political ‘beliefs’ anymore, I have perceptions. Beliefs appear fixed, perceptions imply that your view is just one angle that is subject to change. I can’t blame the politicians or corporations if they have been taught since childhood by everything around them that profit is the most important thing. I will be the change, I will continue to show people that other things, intangible things; like emotions, love, respect, legendary status, hugs and good memories are important too. But I will make more profit than I did in the past so those people who only respect money will respect my opinion. And so I have the freedom and power to make positive changes in my life and others.

So… 2016. I’m gonna be more open. I’m not going to be afraid of socialising with people richer than me. They’ll finance my ingenious ideas. That’s right, I said it. I’m not gonna worry about my old activist friends judging me for wearing a suit. I look damn good in a suit. I’m not gonna be afraid of asking to get paid for what I do. I’ve done gigs for free when I had no money and lived in a warehouse with no central heating. I have nothing to prove to anybody. And if I’m ver afraid, or if I ever worry I’m not gonna judge myself for worrying. Social awkwardness happens to all of us, and bravery is not lack of fear it’s acting despite it. I’ll try to be brave.

More open, less judgment.

I will try not to judge and I will try not to blame because most of us lack an education in the nature of the mind and in the nature of reality. But I will merely try to be the change I want to see.

I AM the change I want to see. And we are the one’s we’ve been waiting for. Why would it be anyone else?

{I will also try to write things like this during the day instead of 5 in the morning so I can sleep at night and walk my talk during the day!}

Rojava. A revolution that’s working? #rojava #revolution #democraticconfederalism

Rojava. A revolution that’s working?

“A small key can open a large door.”

Tonight I heard about Rojava for the first time. What I was told was that an area of Syria had become an unofficial free region*, using a political system which they called “Democratic Confedaralism”. This meant that nobody was completely in charge, all leadership positions were taken by two people and regularly rotated, and it is an area where gender equality is welcomed, championed, and respected. Also they give unconditional asylum to all seeking it.

It is an alternative to the two extremes we are usually force fed – democratic capitalism that encourages us to eat each other and compete for cash at the sacrifice of our humanity and ecology. Or the other extreme, the form of communism that forces everyone to be equal but equally poor at the expense of humanity and freedom. They (whoever ‘they’ are, I’d say ‘The Archons’ but essentially there’s no independent nature, ask me about it) they may want you to believe these are our only choices. There are lots of choices, lots of other options. Proportional representation would be a nice start for England I think, just a point of view. There are lots and lots and lots of other options. Democratic Confedaralism appears to be one of them.

Rojava seem to be a story of people who used to kill each other working together under a new political system that’s actually working and creating a new progressive culture. I got excited. It’s a long time since politics got me excited. Even Corbyn didn’t get me excited, just worried that he might be another liar (that old Fabian Society shaped cloud over his and Russel Brands heads) and worried that if he’s not a liar he might get assassinated before he says anything too true. But I digress (alot), I got excited about Rojava and vowed to go home, investigate and share what I find.

Here is some of what I found…

“The battle over Kobani, which began in the summer of 2014, has brought to the world’s attention the Kurdish resistance to the brutal forces that call themselves Islamic State (IS or ISIS). Contrary to the expectations of many, the defense forces have succeeded in fending off the attacks not only of ISIS, but also the al-Nusra Front and the Assad regime over the last two and a half years. Less well known, however, is the fact that residents of the predominantly Kurdish areas of northern and northeastern Syria have established themselves as a new political entity they call Rojava, comprising three autonomous cantons, one of which is Kobani. There they have undertaken, to all appearances, a social and political revolution, characterized by remarkable efforts towards gender liberation and direct democratic self-government.”

http://roarmag.org/2015/01/statement-academic-delegation-rojava/

“The Rojava Revolution has probably made more concrete progress towards libertarian socialism than any other large-scale struggle at least since the Zapatista insurrection. For this reason alone it is important to engage with this struggle to support the most revolutionary elements of it and to hold it up as an international example of what the self-activity of the popular classes can accomplish.”

http://www.anarchistnews.org/content/our-perspectives-and-tasks-revolution-rojava

“In the past 33 years, the Kurdish freedom struggle, the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), and its leader, Abdullah Öcalan, have not only reacted to social changes but shaped them and proposed further steps in the direction of a liberated society. ”

http://new-compass.net/articles/revolution-rojava

“…the media attention was often selective and partial. The very essence of the political project in Rojava (Western Kurdistan) went unreported and Western journalists generally preferred to present the resistance in Kobani as an inexplicable exception to the supposed barbarism of the Middle East. Unsurprisingly, the victorious flag of the YPG/YPJ brandishing the iconic red star was not a pleasing image to the eyes of the Western powers. The autonomous cantons of Rojava represent a homegrown solution to the conflicts in the Middle East, focusing on gender equality, environmental sustainability and horizontal democratic processes including all different ethnic and social groups, while simultaneously resisting the terror from ISIS and rejecting both liberal democracy and capitalist modernity. ”

http://roarmag.org/2015/02/chiapas-rojava-zapatista-kurds/

*I originally called it an “unofficial Free State” but was advised, “I would maybe leave away the phrasing ‘free state’ because Rojava tries not to be a state”.

Uncertainty (probably maybe)

Humans are amazing, inspiring and infuriating. This infuriating certainty in treating our opinions as fact. I’m sure its all of benefit but this certainty infuriates me. Especially when it ia based on tradition or dogma whether that dogma is scientific, religious, or political and especially when that dogma or tradition is just a social norm. Lynching black people used to be a social norm. Imprisoning people for owning plants is still a social norm.

I cannot escape the hypocrisy that I am human or that I am fairly certain that I shouldn’t be certain about anything.

Some people seem either not intelligent enough or not brave enough to hold the possibility of two or more contradictory ideas in their heads at the same time. It has to be either definitely this way or definitely that way, there’s no room for ‘maybe’. These people cling to either science or religion (the irony being that materialist science is now as rigidly dogmatic as religion despite the fact that science  by definition only finds the most likely hypothesis, never a certainty.)

I find it hard to believe people are not intelligent enough to accept the word ‘maybe’ into their realities because we are all one with the intelligence of nature, science and the universe. So I think it must be stubbornness, arrogance and a fear of the unknown.

Maybe we should make room for “maybe”, we should probably budge up for “probably” too.

For example… The Illuminati probably existed as there is lots of historical information (data) about the Bavarian Illuminati that existed (according to record) in 1776. The Illuminati probably doesn’t exist now or in the way most people think, maybe it’s just a group of international bankers, war profiteers and oil companies with shared interests helping each other stay rich. But maybe I’m wrong.

“Love is the answer, who cares what the question is.”

Are We Really Governed by Self-Serving Megalomaniacs and Tyrants? Or is that just a paranoid conspiracy theory?

My spiritual beliefs are each to their own, live and let live. However compassion cannot stay silent in the shadow of the tyranny of others. This is not a particularly anti-Tory article, I hope that I’m writing for the benefit of all. This is a study of the tyranny and megalomania exhibited by all parties that have been in government in recent years. I have felt inspired to point out clearly and concisely why I believe we are governed by thieves and liars with references in order to dispel the myth that anyone who opposes the government is a ‘paranoid conspiracy theorist’. I will not cite unverifiable theories I will only cite historical facts although as I am human I may deduce certain conclusions based on those facts.

Extremism on either side, left wing Labour or right wing Conservatives, is not beneficial to be honest because – A – it’s almost irelevant cos extreme left and extreme right end up looking exactly the same in effect, whether fascist or socialist you end up with a tyrannical government and – B – Labour has been more or less right-wing since the 90s. But extremes are generally not ideal (depending on time, place and circumstance.) Therefore it’s difficult to consider this a democracy when the only major party that wasn’t up for following Thatcherite ideals were the Greens which was considered by most a wasted vote and a protest vote by others. Are they self-serving? In short – the Conservatives are selling the NHS to their mates, I’m pretty sure it is for personal financial gain (more on that, with references later.) Just to balance things out a bit so this isn’t just Tory bashing – before Tony Blair took his ironic post as Middle East Peace Envoy his first job after being Prime Minister was as a consultant for the international bank JP Morgan. He was getting over a million a year. Is it just me or does it stink to high heaven that a head of state could get a job for an international bank after he gets out of power? You don’t think any of his decisions made in office could be influenced by the words “we’ll make you a millionaire next year?”

The whole left wing / right wing debate is misleading because the extremes on either side whether socialist or fascist are similar in effect – too much power in the hands of the few, regardless of what got you there. And human rights being taken away has the same results whether they’re taken away by the left or the right. And how centre or right or centre-right the Conservatives are we cannot tell until they start actually implementing laws. Case in point – Labour was traditionally left-wing socialist and in the 90s that’s what people voted for but Blair claimed to be centre-left and in actual fact his policies were more or less the same as Thatcher’s (as far as he could get away with) but that wasn’t apparent until he started implementing policies. But I concede, it is more theory than fact because the Conservatives haven’t had a chance to replace the Human Rights Act with with anything else yet. I just highly suspect it will be replaced with something that gives us alot less rights and them alot more power. I concede it’s a theory on account but it’s a strong theory based on the fact that so far the Tories have exhibited zero compassion, it’s not what they’re known for.

I may sound like a conspiracy theorist but these are facts – Dick Cheney had shares in Halliburton, the company tasked with rebuilding Iraq. Tony Blair got over a million a year from a central bank after he left office. The Tories are selling the NHS not just to their friends but companies they have shares in! (See articles below.) So yes, I believe we are governed by people who have financial gain as their main objective, not the benefit of all.

But are our politicians megalomaniacs? Hmmm… Before the war in Iraq “The British Stop the War Coalition (StWC) held a protest in London which it claimed was the largest political demonstration in the city’s history. Police estimated attendance as well in excess of 750,000 people and the BBC estimated that around a million attended. At the finish rally in Hyde Park, the organisers announced 3 million attended. It remains probably the largest protest march in UK history.” So between 750,000 and 3 million people attended to protest against the war in Iraq. Then they ignored us all and bombed the s*** out of it. “Iraq study estimates war-related deaths at 461,000… About half a million people died in Iraq as a result of war-related causes between the US-led invasion in 2003 and mid-2011, an academic study suggests.” In a so called democracy – ignoring the wishes of at least 750,000 of your electorate and then killing 461,000 people (based on most likely fabricated evidence of WMDs, which he never had cos that wasn’t on the list of things the US had sold him) is the act of a megalomaniac. Tony Blair was a megalomaniac, and yes, I suspect David Cameron is too. So yes, right wing extremism is as bad as left wing extremism, yes I think most politicians are motivated by money and yes I think we are and have been governed by megalomaniacs.

I don’t need conspiracy theories when the newspapers and history books are packed with conspiracy facts.

Do I have a solution? I think so – Be the power. A rap group called Public Enemy (my favourite as a kid in the 80s)  once said “Fight the Power”. Since then they have been inspired by a mutual inspiration, Candice O’Denver, to amend that to “Be the power”. (My political views are my own, and none of the above necessarily share my views). What do I mean by “Be the power”? What does it mean to you? Whether that’s write a Zine, write to your MP, organise meetings, organise meditation sessions, write a status, write a blog, share a status, share a blog, join the Green party, start your own party, inform other people as I have just tried to (particularly inform children who are yet to be brainwashed by mainstream media),  or relax and find inner peace. Relax? Find inner peace? Yes. Be the power, but try not to be a megalomaniac or a tyrant. How do you avoid being a megalomaniac or a tyrant? Find relax and find inner peace. Get educated in the nature of the mind. I’m still learning.

Epilogue:

Why did I feel the need to do this? The Conservative Party want to remove the Human Rights Act. They claim they will change it for something ‘better’. I doubt it. I expect they will give us less rights and themselves more power. THAT, is a conspiracy theory by definition cos it hasn’t happened yet therefore I can only theorise. At the risk of sounding arrogant I’m going to state a few facts. They said I was deluded when Tony Blair took over Labour and they beat the Tories and everyone was celebrating and I, only 16 years old, said “that man has an evil smile, I don’t trust him.” Since then Labour became right wing, he followed Thatchers policies and started an illegal war. They said I was deluded when Obama won and he promised Yes We Can and said he’d shut Guantanamo bay and black people were celebrating as if police brutality would end overnight and I said “just cos he’s black doesn’t mean he’s not a politician.” Since then he bombed thousands of innocent civilians, several unarmed black men have been killed by the police and Guantanamo bay is still open. At the risk of sounding arrogant I’m very rarely wrong about these things and history has shown us that the deluded one’s tend to be those that think that politicians are telling the truth when they’re campaigning for your vote. That no longer seems logical.

It’s not prophecy, it’s simple deduction. Once you escape the delusion that the government has your best interests at heart (a delusion I lost after they ignored the biggest protest ever and went to war with Iraq) you can reduce their motivation to money and power to whatever extreme they can get away with while still convincing enough trusting, naive and deluded people that they have their best interests at heart. Governments become reliably predictable after that to the unfortunate extent that I mistakenly believe it’s obvious to everyone. I guess it becomes easier to see when you stop reading papers and watching the news because they insult your intelligence. I literally forget that most people not only consume mainstream media but believe it. The world makes more sense when you stop.

I was rightly accused of propaganda earlier this week when I took it for granted that the Conservatives were planning to take away our Human Rights as I failed to mention that they were planning to replace it with a Bill of Rights (which doesn’t exist yet.) However I have taken it for granted that the Conservatives don’t give a damn about our human rights based on past and present data, such as Poll Tax, austerity measures, the recent appointment of an anti-gay politician to be minister for equality. I didn’t see it as necessary to write a disclaimer saying “the Conservatives promise that when they scrap the Human Rights Bill they’ll write a new one that will keep you safe from their plans, but I don’t believe it and no one in their right minds would” etc etc cos I didn’t think anyone was that dangerously gullible. But I forget, everyone thought Tony Blair was a lefty socialist once upon a time, everyone thought Obama was a pacifist who deserves a nobel peace prize once upon a time and for some reason if you wear a suit and say it on television people believe what you say. So for the sake of keeping it short and not stating what I thought was obvious I omitted some things but for the record here’s what I missed out – the Conservatives say “this is nothing to worry about, we’ll replace it with something better”. But they’re politicians in power – so that’s probably lies.
