How can a person, or a class, be free when its means of life are…
Today’s public figures can no longer write their own speeches or books, and there is some evidence that they can’t read them either.
If we pollute the air, water and soil that keep us alive and well, and destroy the biodiversity that allows natural systems to function, no amount of money will save us.
( David Suzuki )
When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing.
When you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favours.
When you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you.
When you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice, you may know that your society is doomed.
( Ayn Rand, 1957 )
We Are Governed By Men We Have Never Heard Of ..
The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organised habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society.
Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.
We are governed, our minds are moulded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.
This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organised.
Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.
In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses.
It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.
Government Failing Of Social Care Sector ..
Of the 48,213 Covid deaths registered between mid-March and mid-June 2020, 40% were care home residents.
Between mid-March and mid-July, the government supplied NHS Trusts with approximately 80% of their PPE need, and the adult social care sector with approximately 10% of its estimated need of PPE.
The concept that the people running the Brexit campaign would care for the NHS is a rather odd one.
I seem to remember Michael Gove wanting to privatise it.
Boris wanted to charge people for using it.
And Iain Duncan Smith wanted a social insurance system.
The NHS is about as safe with them as a pet hamster would be with a hungry python.
( Sir John Major )
We’re in a giant car heading towards a brick wall and everyones arguing over where they’re going to sit.
Nations who suck-up to a nation rooted in oppression, torture, exploitation and executions are no different than a slave who defends his master.
( Dion Felsrow )
No one owns the land, or the water or the sea.
These were all given to us by Mother Nature, for free.
It’s only the greedy, the corrupt and the callous that force us to pay a fee.

UK Is “Balancing The Books” While Yemenis Starve ..
Britain’s halving of aid to Yemen is a bid to ‘balance the books on the backs of starving people’, the head of the UN humanitarian affairs office has claimed.
The UK will lose global standing for the sake of a ‘relatively small’ sum, said Briton Sir Mark Lowcock, ex-boss of the department for international development.
The reduction from £160million to £87million will lead to tens of thousands of deaths, he added.
Boris Johnson has said the cut was necessary in the ‘straitened circumstances’ of the pandemic.

According to official government figures there were 10,373 foreign national offenders living in the UK at the end of 2020.
After being released from prison, instead of being deported, many are let back out on the streets.
This was up more than 160% on 2012, when it was less than 4,000.

It’s a crazy country.
It’s like a junkie.
Every few years they go to war.
They need their fix.

It’s All An Illusion And A Distraction ..
Manufactured enemies of the people made to look bigger and more dangerous by the government who are deliberately stirring, scapegoating and distorting insignificant issues.
From statue protesters, gypsies and BLM activists to welfare cheats and benefit scroungers to threats from Russia and China to immigrants and the EU.
These groups have one common purpose: To divert and deflect attention from real problems and the failure of this incompetent, and mostly corrupt government to deal with them.
( Wilfred Soon )
The genius of our ruling class is that it has kept a majority of the people from ever questioning the inequity of a system where most people drudge along paying heavy taxes for which they get nothing in return.
The Conservative Party ..
An elite circle of arrogance and wealth, obsessed with power, brought up believing they were born to rule, that the sun shines out of their arse, that only their happiness matters, that money is more important than the lives of ordinary people.
They are not in the least bit concerned about homelessness, hunger and poverty.
The truth is that they hold ordinary people in utter contempt.
( Len Firswood )
When one gets in bed with government, one must expect the diseases it spreads.
The government is corrupt.
The media keeps you distracted with mindless celebrity bull-shit.
The wars are about resources and financial control.
You have more in common with the people being bombed than the billionaires that are controlling you.
Once weapons were manufactured to fight wars.
Now wars are manufactured to sell weapons.
( Fred O. Wilson )
It is no coincidence that the century of total war coincided with the century of central banking.
