From our birth we were given an identity
People told us we were great or small
From our birth we were given rules of right or wrong (Howard Jones).
It really annoys me when I hear people say they are not interested in politics, or worst yet they don’t care what is going on in their country.
We have allowed ourselves to be so beaten down and conditioned that we will accept anything now while we wait on the latest Iphone, just about affordable but you have to skint yourself to get it, but do you really need it, well yes because you are told you need it. One of the greatest tricks this country, and most of the western world, have done has been to convince us that we have no power, a message reinforced by the media and the privileged who are fighting with everything they have to stay at the top and to keep things the way they like them.
War is good because it sells arms, poverty and unemployment are good because they keep wages down and us enslaved to their system, we need them. Class is good because it lets us know our place in the world while we are expected to worship down at the Disney Movie that is the Windsors because we are conditioned to know they are better than us.
And we accept it like the good little Britainirs we are.
If we really want Costa and Amazon to pay tax then all we have to do is stop buying their things overnight and they will brick it. If we want the Tories out then the millions who don’t vote have to get off their arse and start voting for what they want. It isn’t rocket science, but they have us by the balls because we allow them to have us by the balls, and I have no idea how we change it and convince the majority it doesn’t have to be this way.
Just today I was having a conversation with someone and I said to them that I accepted the referendum vote as soon as the Dumbarton result came in, we suspected right away we had lost within a couple of hours of the first votes coming in, but what I find hard to accept is the lost opportunity that the YES vote potentially was. We can all rant about the tactics used by scumbags in government, by unionists, and the media but deep down I really believe that some people when voting no knew that what they were doing was wrong, deep in their hearts they knew it was wrong, but they have been conditioned by fear and lies so much their whole lives they couldn’t vote any other way.
People like Brown, Rennie, Davidson, McDougall and Darling knew that they were voting for themselves, for the system they believe in, a system that protects their narrow view of the world, not for any real belief in this horrid, selfish, shitty little country that is Great Britain, a country that will do anything to keep them in their place and the rest of us where they want us to be and we accept it and not just us, every person in the industrialised world accepts it, and you wonder what the tipping point is. You also begin to understand that they are also just feeding off the crumbs that fall from the table of the privileged, they just catch more of them and are as deluded and conditioned as we are deluded and conditioned. The really disappointing and depressing thing is that are being used to do others dirty work, and for what, the latest Iphone and a seat at a slightly higher table of delusion.
The middle east right now is a basket case built on hatred of each other, of the wrong religion and of mainly British involvement throughout history. Anything good that has come out of this country has mainly came about by accident, we blame America but we made America, we blame capitalism but we designed and exported capitalism, we blame oppression and we are the masters of oppression. But we are being conditioned to believe that they are the problem, and for our sakes we better bomb them, kill them, then blame them when our very involvement allows for more hatred and more killing, the perpetual circle. But hey, it’s Christmas and your iPhone awaits.
It is also really sad that far too many people know nothing about this country, how it works and what it does to them. As long as they have their iPhone, that they are told to be thankful for the crumbs that fall off the table then nothing changes. I get so frustrated at what we have allowed ourselves to become, but other than rant and get frustrated I don’t have the answers, I can only hope that my developing hate (what an awful word) for people like Cameron and Osbourne, for the Red Tories doesn’t consume me or all of us because that is exactly what they want and have been doing for hundreds of years.
I appreciate that I am making sweeping generalisations with this post but just ask yourself if you are as frustrated as I am.
