A Rotten Society

Rapist Allowed Into Britain ..
Parents reading the horrific case of how a Slovakian rapist was allowed into Britain to sexually abuse two little girls will be sickened.. Quite fairly, they will ask, ‘Why on earth was he ever allowed in the country ?’.. Surely checks should be made on those trying to come to Britain before they arrive and molest our children, not once they have already carried out their vile crimes.. Quite simply, they and their daughters have been let down by the system.

A rotten society is when the rich and the powerful use their influence to protect their own.
( Daily Mirror )

Before the election David Cameron was asked if he would cut child tax credit.
He looked David Dimbleby in the eye and said, “No”.
What a lie.. Just a few weeks later he announced £4.5billion cuts from tax credits.
( Yvette Cooper, 08.08.2015 )

To permit every lawless capitalist, every law-defying corporation, to take any action, no matter how iniquitous, in the effort to secure an improper profit and to build up privilege, would be ruinous to the republic.
( Theodore Roosevelt )

Here is my simple economic plan..
Raise taxes on the 1%.
( Johnny Depp )

I don’t remember a single school shooting when I was a kid.
What I do remember is our teacher having us begin the day reciting the pledge of allegiance, reading from the bible and praying.. We also had the Ten Commandments on the wall.. Maybe getting rid of those things wasn’t such a good idea after all.

Every one of us is, in the cosmic perspective, precious.
If a human disagrees with you, let him live.
In a hundred billion galaxies, you will not find another.

No country without an atom bomb could properly consider itself independent.
( Charles de Gaulle, 1890-1970 )

Politics ?
Poli, a Latin word meaning many..
And tics meaning blood-sucking creatures.
( Robin Williams, 1951-2014 )

As long as there is this book, there will be no peace in the world.
( William Gladstone, 1809-1898, holding the Quran above his head )

It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system.. For if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.
( Henry Ford, 1863-1947 )

If we cannot control billionaires power to buy elections, the people elected to office will be responsive to the needs of the rich and powerful, rather than the needs of everyone else.
( Bernie Sanders )

Choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.
( Jerry Garcia )

When you start reading a bit more, about the amount of money being spent on ridiculous shit while there are food banks and families in poverty, it just becomes a joke.

Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.
( Diana, Princess of Wales, 1961-1997 )

One Of The Most Unequal Countries In The World ..
The UK is one of the most unequal countries in the developed world.

The basis of this astounding, and growing, inequality is largely based on the disproportionate nature of our education system.. Our school set-up is one based on segregation.. It is of rich separated from poor.. Of sharp-elbowed parents set apart from those who take what they’re given.. Of fake religious converts, and those who do believe, partitioned from those who can’t find a corrupt priest willing to sign a form, or who are not religious.. It is fuelled by rich, posh people who don’t want their kids to mix with ‘rough types’.. By people who think devotion to a faith elevates them above non-believers.. And by those who think their child is brighter than anyone else’s so should go to a ‘better’ school than everyone else.. ‘Everyone else’, by the way, is usually working-class white, black and Asian children of all academic abilities, but few opportunities.
( Fiona Phillips, 21.06.2014 )

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Justice is itself the great standing policy of civil society.. And any eminent departure from it, under any circumstances, lies under the suspicion of being no policy at all.
( Edmund Burke )

Tory Party Politicians Are Dim ..
The Tory Party politicians are in fact as dim as you think they are, and there is no secret room containing smart people who actually know what they are doing.
They are whining, rude, dishonest, unpleasant, childishly belligerent in public while pathetically craven in private, and overall hollow.

( Dominic Cummings, June 2014 )

Our society must make it right and possible for old people not to fear the young or be deserted by them, for the test of a civilisation is the way that it cares for its helpless members.
( Pearl S. Buck, 1892-1973 )

All Media Are Harshly Censored And Punished ..
I have visited China many times.. It is an exciting and energetic place.. But it is also an unpleasant, corrupt, cruel police state, in which people fear to speak their minds and opponents of the regime disappear.. All media are harshly censored and punished when they rebel.. The Communist Party, responsible for countless murders and one of the worst man-made famines in human history, still dominates the government, and its officials deal brutally with those who stand in their way.

( Peter Hitchens, 22.06.2014 )

Innocence and guilt can be bought and sold if you are part of the wealthy and powerful elite.
( Len Firswood )

Democracy is the means by which those who adore authority and crave security of servitude can use their superior numbers to enslave those who wish to be free.

The Grand Thieves Are Running The Country ..
You are saying our problem is civil disobedience, but that is not our problem.
Our problem is the numbers of people all over the world who have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience.
Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world, in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war and cruelty.. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves, and all the while the grand thieves are running the country.. That’s our problem.
( Howard Zinn, 1922-2010 )

A God or a Creator may exist, but religion is simply a tool invented by the powerful to control the weak-minded and the stupid.

One of the most important reasons for studying history is that virtually every stupid idea that is in vogue today has been tried before and proved disastrous before, time and again.
( Thomas Sowell )

If a believer demands that you, as a non-believer, observe his beliefs..
He is not asking you for your respect, but for your submission.

America will never be destroyed from the outside.
If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
( Abraham Lincoln )

Impossible To Live Without Breaking Laws ..
There’s no way to rule innocent men.. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals.. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them.. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for me to live without breaking laws.. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens ?.. What’s there in that for anyone ?.. But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed or enforced nor objectively interpreted, and you create a nation of law-breakers, and then you cash in on guilt.
( Ayn Rand )

What do you mean, I can’t force people to follow my religion ?
Stop oppressing me !

The Appearance Of A Democracy ..
The perfect dictatorship would have the appearance of a democracy, but would basically be a prison without walls in which the prisoners would not even dream of escaping.. It would essentially be a system of slavery where, through consumption and entertainment, the slaves would love their servitudes.

( Aldous Huxley, 1894-1963 )

Be warned.. The argument you use today to restrict the rights of others, will be used tomorrow to restrict your rights as well.

It’s perfectly okay to disagree with both the major political parties.
It’s called thinking for yourself.

Man will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest.
( Denis Diderot, 1713-1784 )

There is something quite obscene about pin-striped city slickers banding together to make sure that the fat cats in their midst get even fatter by sinking their greedy snouts as deeply as possible into the trough.
( Rose Winfold )
