As a human ‘race’ we should be entirely ashamed of ourselves…politicians, corporations and bankers put profit ahead of health and wellbeing, which should be the foremost concern of any species.  They value something that doesn’t actually exist (it is just a printed piece of paper, or a digital code) more than life itself…it is said that the highest proportion of successful banking executives are psychopaths.  Which would fit in I guess as empathy for other human beings is succinctly lacking.

So why, are we as a society allowing these psychopaths and high-powered political spokesmen to ruin our very species?  Why are we apathetic about the injustices wrought against us, and the surveillance we are now all under with data-collection by the NSA & GCHQ?  The simple answer?  Fear.  We are bound by the fear of losing our jobs, our homes and our lives.  We sit back waiting for others to do something because we don’t want to be the ones to put ourselves out there to say ‘Enough is Enough’.

Because, if we do that, the spotlight is on us, and the Powers That Be may take our names, addresses & hunt us down.  This is where mass civil action is of utmost importance – there should be so many of us on the street that they can’t single us out to ‘make an example’ of us to keep the rest of the sheeple in line.  If thousands appear in the streets, there wouldn’t be enough cells to put us all in.  The new Gagging Law prevents any organisation or charity from speaking out against the Tory regime, a somewhat aptly named law as those with the power are running scared.

They’re scared of the power social media can have in spreading the truth – a tweet or blog can whiz around the globe faster than we can all be arrested…why else would satire Twitter accounts be shut down for daring to question the motives of the DWP or Iain Duncan Smith?  Because they’re scared – scared that we don’t believe their bullshit spin anymore, we see the smoke and mirrors for what they are…the Mass State Media no longer has the clout it had in the days before the internet was accessable by a large proportion of the population.  The headlines we read and news is no longer limited to the paper coming through our doors in the morning, or the news channels on the TV.

The Gagging Law has been passed mere weeks after IPNA’s (Injunctions to Prevent Nuisance and Annoyance) were defeated in the House of Lords – the introduction of which would see us arrested for behaviour which has, or MAY be capable of causing annoyance to another person.  This could involve speaking too loudly, standing in the wrong place for too long, or protesting

As this link from Scriptonite Daily explains.

Thankfully, the introduction of IPNA’s was blocked by the HoL, as they were fully aware it would cause outrage, however the Gagging Law has found it’s way through parliament.  If you need any more proof the government is running scared, London Mayor Boris Johnson has requested a water cannon for the Met, which would be ready for deployment ‘by the summer’.  Why else would the Met need a water cannon unless they were expecting mass protests, as they’ve already admitted it would have been no use during the London riots in 2011?  Despite an estimated cost of £1 million, plus maintanance, training of Met officers in it’s usage, what exactly will the final cost be?  Something this expensive, it won’t be expected to sit in a garage looking pretty and being lovingly polished by dutiful officers – they know discontent is stirring amongst the masses at the way this government has shamefully sold off national assets one by one, the threat to our NHS with privatisation, ATOS, the bedroom tax, welfare cuts, the list goes on and on.

We are waking up, we are seeing the corruption and the scandals, and we are getting thoroughly pissed off with the people running this country – often with no qualifications or skills to benefit their position.  We are realising that nothing done is for our benefit, as a parliament should work – it’s all in the pursuit of a printed piece of paper that is meaningless and as it comes off the press is already worth less than the government (*cough…I mean hard working families) needs to pay back for it in interest.

Suggested film if you don’t believe me regarding the monetary system would be Zeitgeist: Moving Forward – an excellent film following on from Zeitgeist the Movie, and Zeitgeist Addendum – all can be found on YouTube if you wish – they state things in black and white in an understandable way.

Rather than waiting for one person to start a domino effect, instead of letting them go out there alone & risk the wrath of the police and ‘judiciary’ system, take to the streets en-masse, as a group, as a society, and most of all, as a species…things have got to change before history repeats itself – and the only way it’s going to happen is if we, as a collective, stand in unity and solidarity against the system.  Most importantly, do it peacefully – don’t give the corporations the chance to take the high ground against us…the message will be more effective if violence isn’t involved – it doesn’t solve anything!

Wake up and see what’s happening to your liberties! Satire no longer allowed…anywhere in case it upsets the government – WTF?

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UK today!)

UPDATETwitter has finally succumbed to the criticism and reinstated @UKJCP – but you can see here the document which proves the UK government was trying to censor on-line criticism

Yesterday the government’s gagging law was passed by the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats – marking yet another nail in the coffin for freedom of speech in Britain.

And as if to celebrate the occasion, a Twitter parody account that was critical of coalition policies was closed down after complaints were made from government officials.

@UKJCP – a satirical account parodying the DWP – was suspended by Twitter yesterday.

Here’s a direct warning from the Department for Work and Pensions to @UKJCP just a week before it was suspended by Twitter:

DWP shuts down satire

“it is not satire”. So now we’ve not just got government departments deciding what forms of public criticism are acceptable, but also…

You look in your fruit bowl to retrieve a juicy apple you know you bought yesterday – to your horror you discover the whole lot has gone rotten overnight and are now decomposing with mouldy spots.  What do you do?  You throw the lot in the bin/compost bin and disinfect your fruit bowl with vigour.  Why then, is this entire nation festering like an entire barrel of rotten apples?  Not a day seems to go by without another scandal breaking involving ‘influential’ figures or politicians…the very people we are supposed to rely on, the people our children should look up to as role models.

I find myself increasingly disillusioned with this government – it appears you’re damned if you do, and damned if you don’t – between the proverbial devil and the deep blue sea.  Whatever your political alignment, it’s difficult to deny that any party manifesto is no more than spare toilet tissue to wipe your behind with in an emergency…every party makes promises they can’t, or won’t keep to secure votes and be ‘first past the post’, yet once seated in the House of Commons they pull more u-turns than a lost tourist in a rental car.  The elected government are put in power to work for us, to ensure our wellbeing – not to kick us to the ground and repeatedly stamp on our heads whilst stealing the money out of our bloodstained wallets.

Bankers’ bonuses amount to more than most people make in an entire year – their BONUS…the corporate CEO’s make in three hours what most people make in a month.  These obscene figures are ridiculous – ‘We’re all in this together’ our incredibly talented PM tells us…no, actually, we’re not.  Because when it comes down to it, with energy companies putting their prices up an average of 6-10%, we tell Dave we can either afford to heat our houses, or put food in our mouths.  The Tories tell us to put an extra jumper on.  Wow, thanks for that piece of advice, I hadn’t considered that…
Even worse is the information that N-Power pay little to no UK tax which, while not illegal is an absolute whopper of a case of moral compassitis…their profits go through the roof, we run the risk of hypothermia and our honourable leader has his heating payed for by, wait for it, bet you can’t guess…the taxpayer!

So, we get angry…we speak up, we tell a few home truths – the ‘Britain Isn’t Eating’ flyer managed to infuriate Ian Duncan Smith (IDS…more like IBS) yet he sits back and laughs, gloating, as the issue of a spiralling increase in foodbanks is brought up in the Commons.  How DARE you – who do you think pays your salary, your expenses, your bills?  Your benefit ‘reforms’ which are bringing misery to hundreds of thousands of people all over the country…people that have paid into the system their entire life being faced with disasterous poverty through being made redundant, or being diagnosed with a chronic illness which prevents them from working?  It is little wonder peoples’ distrust of a system that is no longer working for the people, but is burying them…either figuratively under mountains of debt, or literally.

Do not be fooled or frightened into apathy and try to ignore the numerous issues popping up like moles in your garden…like the moles, these issues are very real & threatening – perhaps not today, but tomorrow you could find yourself stunned by an announcement which affects your life to the point you can’t sleep at night, you become jobless, homeless, or worse.  The state is becoming increasingly controlling, sucking the life out of its’ inhabitants – for some, this is making life no longer worth living.  We are being monitored every step of the way…CCTV cameras on most street corners, who we contact and for how long being logged and stored, somewhat akin to Orwell’s 1984.  Restrictions on what we can or cannot do tightening like a boa constrictor around our liberties.  All in the name of ‘protection’.  ‘It’s all for your own good’ we are told, ‘we will keep you safer’ is drilled into us with propaganda and red tape.  Let me ask you, who watches the watchers?  Who ensures their moral and ethical integrity is kept intact?

Apathy is perhaps the worst sentiment to have in this day and age…there is a saying that goes somewhat like this – They came for someone in the town, I didn’t speak up for them.  They came for my neighbour, I didn’t speak up for them either.  They came for me, and nobody spoke up for me.

If nobody speaks up for anyone else, where does that leave us as a society, as human beings?

This diseased, corrupt and rotten to the core barrel needs to be dragged out into the garden and incinerated, before it taints the rest of the perishables.
