How can a person, or a class, be free when its means of life are in the grasp of another?
How can the working class be free when the sole chance of existence of its individual members depends on their ability to make profit for others?

( James Connolly )

Embrace diversity. Unite, or be divided, robbed, ruled, killed by those who see you as prey.
Embrace diversity or be destroyed.

Everyone Knows It’s Their Oil And Resources They Want ..
It makes me angry and it’s shocking and shameful when our leaders and governments brag about how much they are spending on military and weapons of war, when taxpayers’ money should be spent on the people, the poor, the disabled, the sick, the homeless, the elderly, and not used to kill and maim people in foreign countries on the pretence of freeing them, when everyone knows it’s their oil and resources they want control of.
( Rose Winfold )

This government show little concern for our essential public services when they put them in the hands of wealthy private companies, whose sole aim is to produce profit to give shareholders their dividends.
( Len Firswood )

We are all responsible for what we believe to be true or false that gets put into our mind and our brain.

We all wish for a peaceful, non-violent world.
When we find the cure for greed, and get rid of those obsessed with power, our wish may come true.

UK Government’s Attacks On Firefighter Pensions ..
Over 6,000 UK firefighters are entitled to return to their pre-2015 pension schemes, an employment tribunal declared on 18 December 2019, in a landmark victory for the Fire Brigades Union with implications across the public sector.
This comes after the Court of Appeal ruled last December that the government’s attacks on firefighter pensions constituted unlawful age discrimination.
The claimants, members of the 1992 and 2006 firefighters’ pension schemes, are now entitled to be treated as if they have remained members of their original pension scheme, with benefits including a retirement age of between 50 and 55.
In July 2019, the government admitted it had spent £495,000 on legal costs fighting to maintain discriminatory pensions, while the total annual cost of applying the ruling across the public sector could be up to £4 billion.

We know this game.
A good indicator of who the establishment fears is who they dehumanise, belittle and abuse in their papers.

( Joe Glenton, 08.01.2020 )

We all reach that point in life when we realise that not many people like hearing the real truth.

When morality comes up against profit, it is seldom that profit loses.

This Virus May Have Done It For Us ..
Our prime function here is eating and fornicating.

The rest is window dressing and vanity.
The cruel, the greedy, and the corrupt have always been the problem.
We have battled with each other from the beginning.
Wars require surplus energy.
Only when there isn’t any, will wars cease.

To suggest that will stop any time soon would be fantasising.
But now Covid has interrupted our murderous behaviour.
It may be that we are being stopped sooner than we expected.
We’ve been promising to stop trashing the place for the past 100 years.
This virus may have done it for us in just a few months.
( Rose Winfold )

When you’re dead, you won’t know you’re dead.
All the pain and suffering will be felt by others.
Exactly the same thing happens when you’re stupid.

We have invaded your country to bring you democracy.
When we’re finished dropping our bombs and firing our missiles, killing thousands of your innocent men, women and children, we will take charge of your oil and resources and place a puppet government in place who will take instructions from us and be controlled by us.
All your citizens will then be free, just like us.

( U.S.A. )

We live in a time when most people, including many politicians, are too inattentive or occupied too much with themselves to understand others.

Company That Employs A Tory Politician Is Given A Virus Testing Contract ..
A healthcare firm which employs Conservative politician Owen Patterson as a paid consultant has been awarded a £133million contract without any other firms being given the opportunity to bid for the work.
The Department of Health and Social Care has given Randox the contract to produce testing kits to help respond to the coronavirus pandemic.
It was awarded without prior publication of a call for competition.
The founder of Randox Laboratories is Peter FitzGerald, a polo-playing multi-millionaire Northern Irish doctor who is the UK’s 475th richest person with a £255million personal fortune, according to the Sunday Times rich list.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock’s department awarded the contract last month under fast-track arrangements that enable public bodies dealing with the pandemic to give contracts to commercial companies quickly without the need to ask other firms to bid for them.
The firm has employed Owen Paterson, a former Conservative cabinet minister and leading Brexit supporter, as a consultant since 2015.
He is currently paid £100,000 a year at the rate of £500 an hour.
Under its contract, Randox has been paid to carry out tests, both posted to individuals at home and administered at testing centres.

Why Does The Universe Exist? ..
How did we come to be?
What is the purpose of life?
What does the future hold?
Some people shy away from these questions, thinking that the answers are beyond us.
Others say that such questions are pointless because life is a product of mindless evolution.
Some people see a universe that is governed by precise, elegant, mathematical laws.
They marvel at the impressive designs in nature, some of which humans try to mimic in man-made products.
And everyday experience tells them that complex, highly functional designs point to intelligence, not undirected forces.

A bully is a coward, and not one has been born that won’t burst into tears when he sees his own blood.
( Len Firswood )

To be led by a coward is to be controlled by all that the coward fears.
To be led by a fool is to be led by the opportunists who control the fool.

( Octavia E. Butler )

If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.

Dysfunction And Cruelty Is The UK Home Office ..
There is much that is twisted and horrifying about the UK Government over the past decade of Tory misrule.
One of the more obscene pits of dysfunction and cruelty is the Home Office.
This is an agency that often behaves like something out of a dystopian fantasy.
The Home Office went off the rails when the Tories started believing their own blather about reducing net immigration.
The UK generally had some of the more liberal immigration policies within the EU.
The Cameron government and Tory party acted as if the state of the UK immigration system was the EU’s fault.
Before the Brexit vote EU legal structures would have allowed the UK to tighten rules on immigration from Europe.
For political reasons the Conservatives failed to even acknowledge that this was possible.
( Wolfheart Sanchez, 11.06.2020 )

All struggles are essentially power struggles.
Who will rule?
Who will lead?
Who will define, refine, confine, design?
Who will dominate?
All struggles are essentially power struggles, and most are no more intellectual than two rams knocking their heads together.

( Octavia E. Butler )

Without doubt, greedy humans and corrupt governments are responsible for the destruction of Nature, the destruction of all creatures that inhabit our planet, and the destruction of our planet itself.
( Rose Winfold )

No amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction, can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party.
So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin.

Assassination Of Top Government Official On Peace Mission ..
The United States has now blatantly and openly assassinated a major foreign government official in another country.
Has this given a green light to Russia, China, and others in the future?
How would an Iranian assassination of a U.S. official planning strikes against Iran be any different morally or under international law?
According to the Iraqi Prime Minister, Qassem Soleimani was on a mission brokering paths to reduce tension in the Persian Gulf.
“I was supposed to meet Soleimani at the morning the day he was killed, he came to deliver me a message from Iran responding to the message we delivered from Saudi to Iran”, the Iraqi PM said.
The U.S. killed someone who actually was on a mission to reduce risks to Saudi Arabia, a major U.S. ally and, by extension, to U.S. forces and U.S. civilians.

The U.S. apparently didn’t care about collateral damage when they targeted and murdered Iranian general Qassem Soleimani.
Among the ten victims was not just the Iranian general but also top Iraqi security officials.
( Rose Winfold )

Those who voted to leave the EU and who have spent the last four years saying to remainers, “You lost, get over it”, are still waiting to discover what they’ve actually won.

When questions of ‘class’ interests are eliminated from public controversy a victory is thereby gained for the possessing, conservative class, whose only hope of security lies in such elimination.
( James Connolly )

Homelessness In The UK ..
In the UK, figures from the charity Shelter reveal that more than 320,000 people are currently homeless, with this total rising each year.
While rough sleeping is the visible face of homelessness, the figures include the many families living in, often unsuitable, temporary accommodation – in some cases for several years.
Rising rents in London’s private housing sector, along with a shortage of genuinely affordable accommodation, means it is increasingly difficult for many people to afford a place to live.

Blind political party loyalty is a disease that inflicts the stubborn and the stupid.
( Doris Fenlow )

The speed and anonymity of the internet has released a demon in otherwise normal people, transforming them into spiteful, mean-spirited psychopaths.
( Craig Brown )

U.S. troops are in Iraq, supposedly, to fight Islamic Terrorists.
The Kurdish and Iranian forces have been U.S. allies in this effort.
And yet, the U.S. have betrayed the Kurds and murdered Iran’s top general along with several Iraq security officials.
( Rose Winfold )

Is China Taking Over Africa? ..
Europe plundered wealth from Africa.
The USA plundered slaves from Africa.

Now it’s China’s turn to plunder resources and slaves from Africa as well.
Some years ago, a Chinese high government official said that their plan was to move 300 million people from China to Africa.
That’s an incredible number of people.
But it wasn’t really picked up anywhere in the press.
Over the years, every time I go back to Africa I see more Chinese, and when they’re working on an industrial or a mining project, they’re all dressed in the same colour jumpsuits.
Almost like the Chinese in Goldfinger, if you remember.
From a long-term point of view, China is taking over Africa.
It’s a very intelligent plan, and an unspoken part of their “One Belt, One Road” program.
They loan money to some backward African government to build a port, railroad, and airport, or what have you.
The Africans can almost never pay those loans back, so the Chinese – as part of the deal – take over the facility and staff it with their own people.
This is actually going on today.
If the African leaders don’t like it – unlikely since they’ve pocketed millions under the table for facilitating the deal – they will likely find their lives are in danger.
If that doesn’t work, the country may have a visit from the Red Army.
( Doug Casey, 02.01.2020 )

The UK has seen a 74% rise in the exploitation of majority-British-national children, almost reaching Victorian-era levels.
London is now the money-laundering capital of the world, and the UK is the drug capital of Europe.
14 million people live in poverty. Violent crime is up by 60%.

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit.
Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.
( Philippians 2:3 )

In my opinion, we don’t devote nearly enough scientific research to finding a cure for jerks.

British Spy Chiefs Didn’t Trust Him ..
Theresa May repeatedly withheld sensitive intelligence from Boris Johnson when he was foreign secretary, because she believed he would leak the information.
The prime minister wanted the then foreign secretary to not be shown certain sensitive secret intelligence when he was appointed in July 2016.
Downing Street’s move is said to have worried security chiefs at the time because of the foreign secretary’s role in authorising sensitive operations.
The report follows claims in 2017 that British spy chiefs were “wary” of sharing information with Johnson because they didn’t trust him.
The New Statesman reported at the time that multiple diplomats had doubts over Johnson’s personal style as foreign secretary.
A month previously, he had said the ISIS stronghold of Sirte, the Libyan city, could be “the next Dubai” once they “clear the dead bodies away.”

NHS Hospital Waiting Times At Record Highs ..
Key targets for cancer, hospital care and A&E have been missed for over three years – with delays for hospital care and in A&E hitting their highest levels since both targets were introduced.
The figures show: 4.42 million patients on the waiting list at the end of September 2019, the highest number ever – 84.8% of them waiting under 18 weeks – below the 92% target and the worst performance since the target was introduced, in 2012.
76.9% of cancer patients starting treatment within 62 days – below the 85% target.
83.6% of A&E patients admitted or transferred within four hours in October 2019 – below the 95% target and the worst performance since the target started was introduced in 2004.

The U.S. and the West created Islamic State Terrorists when they invaded Iraq and Libya, killing hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians, funding rebel forces to help achieve their agenda, nothing to do with democracy, but simply to gain control of the oil fields.

UK Government Keep Secret Relationship With Saudi Arabia ..
The UK Government want to keep secret details of their relationship with Saudi Arabia.
Documents have been redacted and remain censored.
Labour MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle said, “The fact that even now the British public can’t see the level of cooperation between our country and Saudi Arabia shows that the British authorities must be worried that the full truth would disturb many sensible patriotic Brits.
It is time that this relationship be exposed and ended whilst the Saudi Arabian coalition continue to bomb and destroy the Yemen, harbour international terrorism and destabilise the Middle East.”

That’s all anybody can do right now. Live. Hold out. Survive.
I don’t know whether good times are coming back again.
But I know that won’t matter if we don’t survive these times.

( Octavia E. Butler )

If you wouldn’t want something done to you, why do you think it’s okay to do it to others?

Women Protesters Imprisoned And Tortured ..
Loujain al-Hathloul, a 30-year-old Saudi human rights activist who had long campaigned against the ban on women driving, as well as the country’s discriminatory male guardianship system is being imprisoned and tortured inside a dark dungeon in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Saudi women may now have the right to drive — but the Saudi women who fought, protested, and campaigned for that right have been stripped of all their rights.
They are detained, behind bars, victims of vicious torture and abuse.
Her family says that Saudi officials had been willing to release her if she agreed to deny, on camera, that she had been tortured.

In Africa, the average male dies before the age of 60, and just 3% of the population is over 65.
The average age is 18.
In Europe, it’s 42.  Africa is the world’s youngest continent.

The U.S. has more and bigger bombs than Iran but Iran has the firepower to wipe out energy infrastructure in the region and take the global economy down with it.
Anyone who thinks the U.S. can “win” this zero sum game is delusional.
( Dan Cohen, 08.01.2020 )
