Israel Has Arrested 44 Palestinian’s Every Single Day (5 of them children) For 48 Years

Israel the newest and possibly the last Western colony in the world. Behaves badly but its supporters own, influence or control most of the global news organizations and most powerful Western politicians are Zionists, by hook or by crook, – leaving Israel to act brutally and aggressively and to create an apartheid state with worldly impunity.

1984 Here We Come!

In George Orwell’s dystopian future novel 1984 British society has fallen under the sway of tyrants and is no longer a free and independent country. Omnipresent government surveillance watches over all, whilst psychological manipulation of the populous and the rewriting of history to suit the current whims of the elites are the order of the day. Freedom of thought and speech have been replaced with an official line – anyone who deviates from which is guilty of “Thought Crimes”. When I first experienced this story I thought “what a terrible system thank God I live in a free society” and then basically forgot all about it. I certainly didn’t think that any such reality would be coming to the West any time soon, but I was wrong.  Now I am pretty sure that we are well down the road in this wrong direction also. In the West we now see…

  • The plebeian Proles controlled by keeping them satisfied with food, alcohol, the lottery and pornography (Bread and Circuses)
  • Detention Without Trial
  • A Revival of Torture
  • The Suspension of the Right to Trial by Jury
  • In Britain we see the schools told to spy on Muslim children as young as three to monitor them for extremism
  • Newspeak through which the mainstream media controls opinion through manipulative language use
  • Newspeak in which common languages is changed and distorted according to PC Liberal fascism
  • A proliferation of security cameras (Big Brother is Watching You)

We often hear that everywhere in Britain and Western society in general is absolutely full of security cameras. I have heard that we have more here than anywhere else, but at the moment this doesn’t really concern me all that much. They do have their uses. What does concern me is the growing fascistic tendencies of people whom I could only describe as a “illiberal liberal thought police” who have established a new set of “values” to which people must adhere which replace (and in many cases make illegal traditional) traditional British values, indeed Western values.

One big fat example of Big Brother’s “progress” and his Crusade against tradition is how a long established taboo has been forcefully removed from the populous and those who still consider it to be a taboo have effectively been criminalized…   Quite simply “don’t mess with the Gay defenders!”

In Britain’s swinging sixties the Labour Harold Wilson government was at the helm of a number of social reforms. One of these was a decriminalization of homosexual activity between men over 21 (lesbian activity was never illegal in Britain). Up until 1967 homosexual sexual activity was a crime in Britain and similar laws existed elsewhere until the past few decades. Homosexual acts in private between consenting men over the age of 21 were decriminalized in Britain not because of popular approval, but rather because of a feeling amongst the theologians and political thinkers consulted that the law was not there to punish sin and that it was unkind and uneconomic to continue to use the law against these men (and also of course because Roy Jenkins was rather fond of the odd homosexual act himself – if you like something that is currently against the law then why not become Home secretary and simply change it!).

This change in the law was certainly not based upon some sudden popular sea change or U-turn. There is no doubt at all that before the past few decades people were near overwhelmingly hostile to homosexual acts. The overwhelming majority of Christians and other religious people saw them as sinful and the majority of non religious people found them distasteful. Therefore its not surprising that these views have continued amongst the sections of society which the “progressive” cultural Marxist educationalists have failed to “illuminate”. Indeed the tables have been turned completely and whereas we once saw homosexuals frightened to reveal their true thoughts and leanings now it is that Christians, traditionalists and various types of religious people are afraid to say that they think that homosexual acts aren’t “their cup of tea”. The liberation of the Gays has seen an inverse suppression of the free speech of Christians and other social conservatives.

This to the extent that whenever social conservatives (generally old people and religious Christians) repeat the traditional or religious views with which they were brought up they are in great danger of prosecution or persecution from the state, schools and colleges, employers and other institutions…and so we see cases such as that of poor old small hoteliers Hazelmary and Peter Bull of Cornwall refused to let homosexual partners stay in the same bedroom in their hotel cum home and were prosecuted and fined for holding true to their religious beliefs – they simply didn’t want to be involved in what they saw as the mens sin…or when poor old Helen and Joe Roberts of Fleetwood Lancashire were threateningly questioned by the police after asking the council if they could place Christian leaflets warning against homosexuality alongside gay rights leaflets…and if it would not be boring and upsetting I would make a very long list of such cases (in fact I did but then I just deleted it on the aforementioned grounds) … and not only are the actual social conservatives under threat – in England Oxford university a cheeky young undergraduate called Sam Brown was arrested and fined for asking a police man if his horse was gay!?!

We are not talking about people called for anyone to abuse gays, or people who threw stones at gays, or people who spat at gays, or who beat them up or scratched their cars… …or committed any actual hate crimes or even any particular nastiness at all against gays. Indeed none of them said they supported hate crimes against gays – so what were their crimes then? Essentially they were guilty of thought crimes.  They were guilty of maintaining an ancient taboo (going back through their forefathers into time immemorial) that had been outlawed by fascistic Liberals to whom all alternatives to their own values are an evil that must be eradicated (and this is one example of many similar issues). So why has this happened?

It happened of course because Big Brother and the Thought Police have already slipped in the back door. They told us that they were Liberal. They told us that they wanted to Liberate us, but then they started to behave in a more and more controlling way. They were like the sociopathic husband type we sometimes see in an afternoon American TV movie. At first he seems like a dream man, even too good to be true, a new man, a great dad for the heroine’s kids. Yet once he’s fully established the mask starts to slip and he reveals himself as a psychopathic controller and abuser.

It all started off beautifully. We were going to be liberated and free, we were going to benefit from a caring liberal society, everyone was going to be happy with their new consumer goods and new sexual freedoms. Many people thought that they were going to consume and hump their way into an “earthly paradise”.

Of course that was back when people could say what they wanted on social matters and thought that this would continue, that was before the government micro-management of people’s lives, before the institution of oppressive laws, before the breakdown of the community feeling, the breakdown of the family, spiraling venereal diseases, burglar alarms, locked doors, no go areas, drug addicted zombies, mass prostitution, gangs of violent teenagers, binge drinking…that was before police men started driving tanks, carting machine guns and getting suited up in armour..

Now don’t get me wrong Britain, Europe, America they are still paradise compared to somewhere like China or North Korea which seem to have taken 1984 as a conscious inspiration, but as Hillaire Belloc warned us long ago in the “Servile State” – we have ended up with the worst bits of Socialism (a highly controlling and micro-managing state) and the worst bits of Capitalism (namely massive and growing inequality). Indeed the only bit that Belloc got wrong was that he thought that our slavery would be comfortable as a means of control – it’s getting less and less comfortable.

1984 here we come!

George Orwell Sayings

Some great words of George Orwell….

On Innate Patriotism

“To this day it gives me a faint feeling of sacrilege not to stand to attention during ‘God save the King’.”

On Truth

“In a time of universal deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”

On the Real Issue in Politics

“The real division is not between conservatives and revolutionaries but between authoritarians and libertarians.”

On the Dangers of Collectivism

“It cannot be said too often—at any rate, it is not being said nearly often enough—that collectivism is not inherently democratic, but, on the contrary, gives to a tyrannical minority such powers as the Spanish Inquisitors never dreamed of.”

On the Pervasiveness of Politics

“In our age there is no such thing as ‘keeping out of politics.’ All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred, and schizophrenia.”

Some Wisdom

“if we kill all pleasure in the actual process of life, what sort of future are we preparing for ourselves? If a man cannot enjoy the return of spring, why should he be happy in a labour-saving Utopia? What will he do with the leisure that the machine will give him?”

On Patriotism vs. Pseudo Intellectualism

“It is all very well to be ‘advanced’ and ‘enlightened,’ to snigger at Colonel Blimp and proclaim your emancipation from all traditional loyalties, but a time comes when the sand of the desert is sodden red and what have I done for thee, England, my England? As I was brought up in this tradition myself I can recognise it under strange disguises, and also sympathise with it, for even at its stupidest and most sentimental it is a comelier thing than the shallow self-righteousness of the left-wing intelligentsia.”

On Socialist Elitism

“The truth is that to many people calling themselves Socialists, revolution does not mean a movement of the masses with which they hope to associate themselves; it means a set of reforms which ‘we,’ the clever ones, are going to impose upon ‘them,’ the Lower Orders.”

On Beggars

“Beggars do not work, … but then, what is work? … A beggar works by standing out of doors in all weathers and getting varicose veins, bronchitis etc. It is a trade like any other; quite useless, of course — but, then, many reputable trades are quite useless.”

On Defeating Extremism

“always disagree, however, when people end up saying that we can only combat Communism, Fascism or what not if we develop an equal fanaticism. It appears to me that one defeats the fanatic precisely by not being a fanatic oneself, but … by using one’s intelligence.”

On Pacifists

“There is a minority of intellectual pacifists whose real though un-admitted motive appears to be hatred of western democracy and admiration for totalitarianism. Pacifist propaganda usually boils down to saying that one side is as bad as the other, but if one looks closely at the writings of younger intellectual pacifists, one finds that they do not by any means express impartial disapproval but are directed almost entirely against Britain and the United States.”

Some Wisdom

“…public opinion, because of the tremendous urge to conformity in gregarious animals, is less tolerant than any system of law…”

On War

“War against a foreign country only happens when the moneyed classes think they are going to profit from it.”

On Self Defence

“If you throw away your weapons, some less scrupulous person will pick them up. If you turn the other cheek, you will get a harder blow on it than you got on the first one. This does not always happen, but it is to be expected, and you ought not to complain if it does happen.”

On Nationalism

“The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them.”

On Sport

“Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence. In other words, it is war minus the shooting.

 *
On Political Sophism
 *
Political language… is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.”
*
On A Human Folly
*
“Each generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it…”
 *
On Warmongers
 *
“All the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting.”
 *
On the Dangers of Modern Warfare
 *
“To walk through the ruined cities of Germany is to feel an actual doubt about the continuity of civilization.”
*

George Orwell a Life in Pictures

Terrorism is a Mental Illness

Most Muslims are not Wahhabis and most Wahhabis are not extremists, most Wahhabi extremists are not Wahhabi Kharijites and most Wahhabi Kharijites* are not Wahhabi Kharijite terrorists, although they may lean towards it… but, TV will not (generally) tell you this.

So who are the Wahhabi Kharijite terrorists other than a small group of people who are supported and manipulated as a geopolitical tool by various national and international powers for their own geopolitical and economic reasons?

The crimes of the Wahhabi Kharijite terrorists such as ISIS, Al-Qaeda and Boko Haram serve the dubious interests of many people, but those people are mostly non-Muslims, some are those most hostile towards the Muslims.

These neo-Kharijites have two types of victims – the first are those non-Muslims and Muslims who they oppress, attack, maim or kill (and they do indeed harm many more Muslims than they harm non-Muslims) along with the generally well intentioned young people who they dupe and use as cannon fodder… … the second type of victims are Muslims anywhere who are attacked, abused and insulted by the unpleasant and misguided people amongst the non-Muslims – who have been given an “excuse” to let out their nasty side upon socially demonized scapegoats. These people now feel ‘justified’ and free and are able…

  • to hate Muslims,
  • to abuse Muslims,
  • to legislate against Muslims,
  • to ritually insult them,
  • to ban their symbols,
  • to ban their clothes,
  • to persecute them,
  • to attack them,
  • to lie about them,
  • to insult their Prophet (saws),
  • to portray them as a ‘feared other’,
  • to promote false stereotypes about them,
  • to bomb them and invade their countries,
  • to oppress them or torment them
  • to take their natural resources…

…and none of this could happen so easily if it was not for the actions of the Wahhabi Kharijite terrorists…  …and it seems that these people thrive on the suffering of the Muslims which so swells their ranks with new recruits who are created by every non-Muslim knee-jerk reaction… …and so to the demagogues of Islamophobic hate and the arms manufacturers for whom the ‘War on Terror’ has been a time of rapid expansion and growth… …and as new nutjobs will continue to spring up on both sides it seems that this unpleasant affair will continue until even the simplest people are able to understand how humanity is being set against itself for the dubious benefits of a few… …when humanity would do much better working harmoniously… …interacting for mutual benefit and without compulsion……and all that is required is a change in the popular level of consciousness, from material to spiritual… …and then wonderful things may happen.

Neoliberalism is a Conspiracy of the Rich

Look into the subject with an open mind, and if you are like me, you will find that it is hard to come to any other conclusion – Neoliberalism is conspiracy instigated by the very rich, to favour the economic interests of the very rich against the interests of everyone else.

Since the late 1970’s the paid and unpaid agents of the super rich have spread idea that economies have to be broken down into a free market scenario that favours big corporations (the shares of which just so happen to be mainly owned by the rich). All elements of society that are not compatible with free markets come under threat – even when these things are actually very positive and productive.

  • Taxes are lowered* (in favour of the very rich)…(* lowering taxes is no bad thing as such, but it can only be done without hurting the poor where governments have alternative sources of income such as state owned land, industries, businesses or natural resources such as coal and oil etc)
  • Trade barriers are removed (for the benefit of the very rich)…
  • Public social services are reduced or eradicated (the very rich don’t need them)…
  • Price controls are ended (so the very rich can overcharge you when they achieve monopolistic hegemony over a service or type of product)…
  • Nationalized utilities and industries (owned by the public and run on their behalf by the government) are sold (so the very rich can buy them up)…
  • Popularly elected rulers are dis-empowered (because these serve the people), whilst powerful, unelected, greed based corporations are empowered (because these serve the very rich who are their major shareholders)…

In short through the imposition of the Neoliberal pestilence a social democratic or socialist society is dismantled to be rebuilt in a way that facilitates the rape of that country’s wealth by the very rich.

Say goodbye to the welfare state, public libraries, national health services, public water, electricity, gas, post, rail etc… only a skeleton of the infrastructure of government services will eventually remain… and these will be only those parts that serve the corporations and stop society from completely disintegrating (such as state schooling which makes new human cogs for the capitalist machine).

What sort of democratically empowered electorate in its right mind would accept such harmful and detrimental changes?

A. Ones which receives massive propaganda from sources owned by the very same extremely rich people who will benefit from Neoliberalism…

B. Ones which are going through “shock therapy” imposed upon their poor “over the barrel” selves by the ever so harmful International Monetary Fund and its evil twin the World Bank (institutions which serve the interests of the very rich and con and bully cash strapped nations like international loan sharks)…

…and what happens as a result of this “shock therapy” during which a countries services are destroyed and its assets are stripped?

1. The pre-existing social democratic or socialist structure of that society is broken down, its social safety nets are removed, people plunge into the darkness of this so-called “therapy”.

2. Families break up, suicide spirals, many people turn to drugs and alcohol, many people are stunned and afflicted by learned helplessness, many people lose the ability to access the resources needed to live their lives even with very basic normal standards. Everything is broken up, the average person is weakened and their honour and self esteem are reduced. They become less dignified and more animalistic…

…and into this deliberately created wasteland stride the monstrous capitalist corporations which suck up local human and material resources like gigantic hoovers, using the local working populations as wage slaves not as free dignified human beings…

…and because the workers always have the threat of being replaced by someone from the ever present pool of the harassed, abused, under-supported and ritually insulted unemployed masses, they will accept all sorts of indignities that their grandparents in the social democratic and socialist era were never expected to suffer…

…and traditional working hours are replaced with whatever hours suit the companies and the workers accept it, pleased just to have a job…

…and the weekend and traditional holidays are no longer sacrosanct and the workers accept it, because they have no choice…

…and pay rates are steadily reduced (in real terms) so the workers willingly seek out overtime to try to make a decent living or just to keep out of bankruptcy…

…and women are forced, by their poverty into the workplace (usually into less well paid and less pleasant jobs), whether they like it or not (the option of being a homemaker becoming a choice only accessible to those who can afford it)…

…and people in workplaces are disciplined for being ill, or are fired for it, even though they have doctors notes, and no one cares and no union has the power to resist this state of affairs because unions have been thoroughly weakened…

and the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, because Neoliberalism only works for the rich. It only ever worked for the rich in the past and it will probably only every work for the rich in the future…

5 Commonly Identified Evils of Neoliberalism

1) The evil and harmful “rule of the market” as opposed to the rule of the benevolent.
2) The great evil of cutting expenditures for public-social services when people are in need.
3) The evil of deregulation in ways that only usually favour big business.
4) The great evil of privatization (otherwise known as national asset stripping).
5) The immense evil of downplaying the ideology of public benevolence and community.

Neoliberalism Unmasked

.

“Neoliberal democracy in a nutshell: trivial debate over minor issues by parties that basically pursue the same pro-business policies regardless of formal differences and campaign debate….The neoliberal system therefore has an important and necessary byproduct – a depoliticized citizenry marked by apathy and cynicism” – Noam Chomsky

.

“For developing countries, free trade has a rarely been a matter of choice; it was often an imposition from outside, sometimes even through military power. Most of them did very poorly under free trade; they did much better when they used protection and subsidies. … Neo-liberal free-trade free-market policy claims to sacrifice equity for growth, but in fact it achieves neither; growth has slowed down in the past two and a half decades when markets were freed and borders opened.” – Ha Joon Chang

.

“In some respects the caliber of debate and choice in neoliberal elections tends to be closer to that of the one-party communist state than that of a genuine democracy.” Robert W. McChesney

.

“The very design of neoliberal principles is a direct attack on democracy.” ― Noam Chomsky

.

“This is the permanent tension that lies at the heart of a capitalist democracy and is exacerbated in times of crisis. In order to ensure the survival of the richest, it is democracy that has to be heavily regulated rather than capitalism.” Tariq Ali

.

“Neoliberalization has not been very effective in revitalizing global capital accumulation, but it has succeeded remarkably well in restoring, or in some instances (as in Russia and China) creating, the power of an economic elite. The theoretical utopianism of neoliberal argument has, I conclude, primarily worked as a system of justification and legitimation for whatever needed to be done to achieve this goal.” David Harvey

.

“NGOs have a complicated space in neoliberal politics. They are supposed to mop up the anger. Even when they are doing good work, they are supposed to maintain the status quo. They are the missionaries of the corporate world.”  ― Arundhati Roy

.

… In sum, the Neoliberal Revolution seeks to achieve in Europe what the United States has achieved since real wages stopped rising in 1979: doubling the share of wealth enjoyed by the richest 1%. This involves reducing the middle class to poverty, breaking union power, and destroying the internal market as a precondition.” – Michael Hudson

.

The wealth creators of neoliberal mythology are some of the most effective wealth destroyers the world has ever seen.”  – George Monbiot

.

“Deregulation has been, above all else, a means of reducing corporate business’s accountability to the public.” -Herbert Schiller

.

“The management of the New York fiscal crisis pioneered the way for neoliberal practices both domestically under Reagan and internationally through the IMF (international monetary fund) in the 1980s. It established the principle that in the event of a conflict between the integrity of financial institutions , on one hand , and the well-being of the citizens on the other, the former was to be privileged .it emphasized that the role of the government was to create a good business climate rather than look to the needs and well-being of the population at large.” – David Harvey

.

“Americans are gathering the courage to just say no. We are saying no to addictive consumer lifestyles. We are saying no to wars and corporate takeover and the IMF loans that gobble up people and their resources.– Cynthia McKinney

 .
“Deregulation freed corporations from legal constraints, and privatization empowered them to govern areas of society from which they had been previously been excluded. By the end of the century, the corporation had become the world’s dominant institution.” – Joel Bakan
.
.

“Kuttner then enumerates the limitations of markets. Deregulation of airlines, for example has led both to a loss of service and to higher average fares. Nor are free markets really free. They come to be dominated by giants, like Time Warner and Rupert Murdoch.” – Richard Gwynn

.
“It is really quite amazing that all of the folks supporting privatization, from the president on down, keep invoking the name of my grandfather, Franklin Delano Roosevelt.” – James Roosevelt
.
.
“Privatisation does not mean you take a public institution and give it to some nice person. It means you take a public institution and give it to an unaccountable tyranny. Public institutions have many side benefits. For one thing they may purposely run at a loss. They’re not out for profit. They may purposely run at a loss because of the side benefits. So, for example if a public steel industry runs at a loss it’s providing cheap steel to other industries. Maybe that’s a good thing. Public institutions can have a counter cyclic property. So that means that they can maintain employment in periods of recession, which increases demand, which helps you to get out of recession. Private companies can’t do that in a recession. Throw out the work force because that’s the way you make money.” – Noam Chomsky
