UK Election Results #ANewHope

So we blew up their Death Star but the evil Empire still clings on for dear life… No time for the Rebel Alliance to hold back. Gold leader, standing by…

Well it is obvious now that people under 30 generally don’t believe the mainstream media, saw through the bias, and saw through the lies. The only reason Labour has in-fighting is because Tony Blair and his cronies tried to make it right wing for 20 years. Corbyn just has to do pest control to get New Labour Blairites out.
We need to start boycotting newspapers that just repeat Tory agenda. The papers have said for years that Corbyn is a weak leader and nobody likes him, the election results proved that wrong. Now we need young people to dialogue with the old, banks and politicians created the financial crisis – not immigrants or people on benefits.
Rupert Murdoch owns half the tabloids that told you what to think, he wants tax breaks for the rich (The Sun is NOT the voice of the working class.)
The Tories would PERSONALLY and FINANCIALLY benefit ​from NHS privatisation through the companies they have shares in, that is not even a question. That fact alone should be enough to turn everyone off them.
If the older generation also get it through their heads that politicians and newspapers lie to them, and that’s a rational, financially logical conclusion, not a conspiracy theory, we might actually see some real and positive change.
Austerity is stealing from the working class to give to the rich and it was justified by lies.
But for now, ha ha and ha again. The next generation will be even more aware than this one.


But what next?

What is the actual goal?

 

To encourage activism? to encourage a coalition? is it an emotional goal or a political goa? Emotional goals have their value too sometimes we just need to express.

Well I’m not up for protesting for the sake of protesting. That only works if you cost them money or bad publicity, and as ‘they’ own the media it’s rarely bad publicity for them. And as ‘they’ have agent provacateurs it’s often bad publicity for activists.

Well my goal is education. I will get involved in campaigns and actions that educate people on some simple facts – the Tories will financially benefit from NHS privatisation through the companies they have shares in and the newspapers have continually lied to us about Corbyn. I will not gather with placards unless we also have leaflets or something to change hearts and minds, because protesting for the sake of protesting doesn’t seem to work in my experience. It’s cathartic and emotionally healing but unless we educate people or unless the protest costs the people we’re protesting against money they are relatively ineffectual, preaching to the converted while giving agent provocateurs an opportunity to make us look bad.
I’m sure alot of us went on the biggest march this country has ever seen against the war in Iraq and they just ignored us and killed lots of people. I’m willing to implement solutions… but I’m personally only interested in coordinated information and education spreading. Tories are basically voted in by people who believe newspapers lies, and I am willing to be part of the solution. But my past and my race make me a target at protests, I’m a known social activist and an ex-front line activist.

False Flags – what are they? And have they ever been proven?

To that I say…
1 it is never too early to discuss who might be the perpetrators of tragic events. If there is any question that may be asked it should be asked.
And…
2 nowhere in this article will I specifically claim any recent events were a false flag, I am merely proving that false flags do exist. Once that step has been taken and those facts accepted you can discuss recent events amongst yourselves.

Do you know what the phrase False Flag means?

If your answer includes the phrase “crisis actor” you are wrong. Most false flags have real victims, the only thing false about them are the scapegoats who are lied about, and blamed as the perpetrators. Has this ever happened? Yes. It’s been both proven and admitted. So, no, it’s not a ridiculous idea and that much I can and will prove.
“false flag describes covert operations that are designed to deceive in such a way that activities appear as though they are being carried out by entities, groups, or nations other than those who actually planned and executed them.

Historically, the term “false flag” has its origins in naval warfare where the use of a flag other than the belligerent’s true battle flag before (but not while) engaging the enemy has long been accepted as a permissible ruse de guerre; by contrast, flying a false flag while engaging the enemy constitutes perfidy.[1]

Operations carried out during peace-time by civilian organizations, as well as covert government agencies, can (by extension) also be called false flag operations if they seek to hide the real organization behind an operation.. Wikipedia

It doesn’t necessarily need “crisis actors” in fact sadly they usually have real victims.

A false flag is not necessarily something that didn’t happen, it is usually something that did happen but was either blamed on the wrong people or allowed to happen. I’m not claiming people were not hurt or killed, I’m not even claiming this was a false flag yet. I’m just asking questions and giving people reasons to question the narrative.

I’m surprised how many people are already talking about it more openly than I normally would. This sort of talk invited insults and ridicule ten years ago, but now I’m often preaching to the converted.

Before I get to the historical false flags I will address the assumption that our government may have been that brutal in the past but would never stopped so  low as to kill and lie for financial reasons. Actually the Chilcott enquiry proved politicians will bomb children over a lie. History has proved politicians will bomb children over lies. The fact that some can’t believe it is actually evidence of your denial, letting pensioners die, disabled people die, and people who can’t afford health care die is just the blunt side of a regime that doesn’t give a fuck about human life. Most of these ‘gullible sheep’ came to their conclusions based on years of research, not a quick Google. Research you’ve evidently never done or this would all sound less crazy to you. I know several historical facts less crazy than this scenario.

In case you think the whole idea is ridiculous and no government would ever do that… (6) The British government admits that – between 1946 and 1948 – it bombed 5 ships carrying Jews attempting to flee the Holocaust to seek safety in Palestine, set up a fake group called “Defenders of Arab Palestine”, and then had the psuedo-group falsely claim responsibility for the bombings (and see this, this and this). (7) Israel admits that in 1954, an Israeli terrorist cell operating in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including U.S. diplomatic facilities, then left behind “evidence” implicating the Arabs as the culprits (one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to identify the bombers, and several of the Israelis later confessed) (and see this and this). (8) The CIA admits that it hired Iranians in the 1950’s to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its democratically-elected prime minister. (9) The Turkish Prime Minister admitted that the Turkish government carried out the 1955 bombing on a Turkish consulate in Greece – also damaging the nearby birthplace of the founder of modern Turkey – and blamed it on Greece, for the purpose of inciting and justifying anti-Greek violence. (10) The British Prime Minister admitted to his defense secretary that he and American president Dwight Eisenhower approved a plan in 1957 to carry out attacks in Syria and blame it on the Syrian government as a way to effect regime change. (11) The former Italian Prime Minister, an Italian judge, and the former head of Italian counterintelligence admit that NATO, with the help of the Pentagon and CIA, carried out terror bombings in Italy and other European countries in the 1950s and blamed the communists, in order to rally people’s support for their governments in Europe in their fight against communism. As one participant in this formerly-secret program stated: “You had to attack civilians, people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the state to ask for greater security” (and see this) (Italy and other European countries subject to the terror campaign had joined NATO before the bombings occurred). And watch this BBC special. They also allegedly carried out terror attacks in France, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, the UK, and other countries.

There is a bit of a debate over whether or not Theresa May’s husband owns shares in G4S (so I am withdrawing that bit from my evidence pile but mentioning the fact that people argue about it for you to draw your own conclusions and do your own research.) But there is plenty of evidence that G4S is ‘dodgy asf’.

“Although the NYPD has denied any relation to the shooter, Mateen’s employer, G4S, has some interesting links to previous terrorist events. And it benefits from terrorism.

Mateen worked for the British company G4S since 2007. Throughout that time, G4S has been what people might call a private, special operations military outfit. It is said to be three times the size of the British military. In 2012, a G4S employee was charged with making a bomb threat at the Olympics. Similar bomb threats were connected to G4S in 2013 and May 2016.

Previously called Securicor, G4S provided security at all three airports affected by the 9/11 attacks. Securicor/G4S had bought Argenbright Security—the 9/11 airport security firm—just nine months before the 9/11 attacks. The company later ran operations at Guantanamo Bay.” From http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2016/06/orlando_g4s.html

Does it matter whether the terrorists are here or there? What matters is they only win if we  get so scared we can’t love and so scared we can’t share. They don’t want you to be happy. They want you to be stressed. They want you to be scared. They don’t want you to go out, share love and live your life without being a microchipped, monitored slave to fear.
So what we gonna do? We gonna keep on loving. We gonna keep spreading the love. We gonna find solutions rather than problems.
🕊️🕉️❤️🕉️🕊️
If you mind is sufficiently open to question recent events, may I suggest you start here with an article by John Pilger… – https://off-guardian.org/2017/06/03/terror-in-britain-what-did-the-prime-minister-know/
And if you’re up for something more  a light-hearted I wrote these lyrics for Who Cares months before the recent attacks “most people just want to know ‘who can we blame’ and after that it’s back to ‘who won the game?’ The banks and politicians have been performing the greatest robbery while immigrants get blamed for the lack of jobs and the economy. Luckily I remember the words of Malcolm X warning me, ‘the media will have you thanking your oppressors and blaming the oppressed…'” Light-hearted? Well I’m dressed as Spider-man dancing like a cross between Michael Jackson and Beyonce…

#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?

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.”

“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.”

“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. ”

“…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. ”

*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”.
