Venezuela shows the way

I’ll be called a Nazi (again) for this but – the left wing violent arseholes are just as bad as the right wing violent arseholes. Donnie the Trump has been castigated for ‘saying’ (they hear what they want you to have said, not what you said) that the two sides are morally equivalent.

He is right. Both seek to get their way using violence. There really is no difference. The Left claim they are morally superior because Nazis are violent and everyone should ‘punch a Nazi’. Suggest that, in that case, it should also be okay to ‘punch a Commie’ and they respond with ‘you can’t go around hitting people just because you don’t agree with them’.

Oh I’m not kidding…


Politicians, even those who are allegedly Republicans, support Antifa. So do the media. It’s always the white guy who’s the bad guy even when Antifa beat up old men and reporters. Even when Antifa turn up armed and armoured to beat up people who are neither. Even when Antifa turn up to other people’s rallies with the sole aim of causing violence. They can do no wrong.

And that is deliberate. They don’t understand that, none of the Lefties understand it, but they are doing exactly what those in charge want them to do.

Donnie Trumpton is a wild card. He wasn’t supposed to win. He’s not in the program, he’s not part of the plan. Even his own side are trying to take him down. He’s messing everything up! Imagine him saying that destroying American history is not a good thing! The horror!

Even though the Confederates were Democrats, and Democrats commissioned and erected the statues they are now tearing down. It doesn’t matter. The point is to erase history so future generations won’t learn from it. They won’t understand that slavery is bad and they’ll be compliant, happy slaves with no knowledge that in the past, slavery was abolished by the white people.

Slavery still happens in some places. Not in the self-hating white world but in other places, it happens and Lefties either pretend it doesn’t or they are happy with it. No, I’m not going to list the places. Look them up yourself.

In the UK, we had Lefties wailing in the streets when the Tories won the election but not as violently as in the USA. The reason is simple. Tessie Maybe is part of the plan. It didn’t really matter who won, there isn’t any real choice here now. Oh, Corbyn would have turned the place into Venezuela faster but it’s happening anyway. So a little bit of token protest was in order but that’s all.

Now we have people on Twitter saying all white people should die and that’s not racist in this modern land of Absurdia. There are white people saying it – they are strangely not dead themselves but they say it anyway. Don’t just talk about it, White Wailers. Actions speak louder than words.

By now you’re itching to know what the plan is, aren’t you? It’s a very simple plan. It leads to what Venezuela has just done.

Provoke more and more violence and then promise to do something about it. That ‘something’ involves giving the government power to crush any dissent, make bloggers like me ‘disappear’ in the night and give whoever is in charge dictatorial powers. Maduro will soon be able to rule by decree. It’s written into the law they are passing now.

This is the only reason anyone in the West wants to be the head of Government. When this shit hits the fan, the current Prime Monster will be the one in charge. No need for all that faffing about getting laws passed. One person in charge of each country – and in the EU, one person in charge of Europe with their own army to command.

Is Brexit happening? The alleged conservatives are stalling at every move. The whole thing has been put on hold until after Germany’s elections, as if that is somehow relevant to us leaving the Control Club. Tessie Maybe isn’t the one to get us out of the EU. She doesn’t want us out. So we’ll be ruled by a dictator in Brussels one day.

It’s so much easier to control a world where you only have to deal with one person per country. One vicious dictator who will do anything to hold on to power and money. No messing around with persuading a whole Parliament, you just have the one leader to deal with. Even easier when the EU can run a whole load of countries with one leader.

Oh and Muslims? When it happens, well, sorry guys but they won’t need you any more. You did your part in forcing populations to accept total control but you won’t be the ones in charge of it. Neither will Antifa.They’ll cheer the Venezuela style laws when they come but they won’t see that they are the ones to be disposed of. When the population is under control, nobody needs masked thugs any more.

Besides, how can you get the population under control unless you do what you promised and… erase the ones they are scared of? All you terrorists are just setting yourselves up you know.

Oh there will still be terrorists. Different ones. Have to keep the bogeyman alive otherwise what is your dictator protecting you from?

Have you ever wondered how, in the days after any terrorist attack, new control measures and complex pavement structures to restrict movement are built, painted and ready to install? Almost as if the government knew what was coming and had the stuff in storage somewhere.

You can call me a tinfoil hatter, you can laugh it off, you can say it won’t happen.

In Venezuela, it just did.

 

 

 

Dust off those saddles…

I have broken my tablet computer. Terminally. I had left it on the floor by the bed, the phone rang, I got up to answer it and crunch. To top it all there was nobody on the phone. It was probably one of those timeout sales calls.

Fortunately I had opted for a cheap Chinese-made one so it won’t hurt too bad to replace it. And it did mean I got to take it apart. I’ve always wanted to see inside one of these things. So I now have two very small good quality speakers that will fit easily inside a model train with a sound generator, a couple of tiny cameras and a microphone (not sure how to wire up a camera but I can find out). Best of all is the ‘vibrate’ motor. Runs on 3V and is less than a cm long. I can fit that into something very small indeed, along with a couple of tiny button cells. My model building interest is rekindled!

I might make a tiny electric car. Might as well, we won’t have any petrol or diesel ones soon. Then again, I’ll be 80 in 2040 so probably won’t want to do much driving. My kids will still be driving age though. They’ll be stuck with those God-awful electric cars. Not even hybrids – the petrol and diesel won’t be allowed.

Suddenly, cars are the cause of all ills. Does that let smokers off the hook? We’ve been saying for a long time that the smoke from a cigarette is nothing compared to a passing truck, nor even a drive-by in a Mini. Nobody wanted to hear it.

It doesn’t let us off the hook because it was never about health and neither is this.

Ministers believe it poses the largest environment risk to public health in the UK, costing up to £2.7bn in lost productivity in one recent year.

Ministers believe whatever it is in their interests to believe, as always. But their thinking is in terms of lost productivity, not health. Sick drones don’t work as hard. That’s how it was sold to them. Same as with tobacco, booze, salt, fat, anything. They don’t give a shit about you. You exist to pay taxes to them. You exist to work so they don’t have to.

Remember when the antismokers checked carbon monoxide in breath tests on smokers in the street? On busy streets. They never tested nonsmokers and never tested themselves. If they had, all the results would have been the same because the CO and other stuff from exhaust fumes on a busy street will overwhelm anything a cigarette can do.

And yet, at that time, the buses and cars rolling by were totally harmless compared to half a gram of burning leaf.

When my grandmother was born there were no cars. They are really that recent, starting in the early 1900s as rich men’s toys. You had to have a man with a red flag walking in front to warn people you were coming so they wouldn’t be startled. That might come back with the electric car because those things are almost silent. They’ll need sound generators like model trains have, so they sound like a real one.

The Cult of the Green God is not satisfied because like all the other ‘mememe’ groups out there, they are never satisfied. They want cars banned right now. Except theirs of course. I mean, how do you get to the next conference on stopping oil use if oil products are banned? Walk there, like a common pleb? They are far too important for that.

Seriously, imagine a world where you can’t speed around in a flash Audi or BMW and have to try to pick up girls in a glorified disability cart. See it happening? The car industry can adapt of course, they just make electric cars instead of petrol ones and then charge more than the car’s value for new batteries.

But the oil industry? You really think they are going quietly into oblivion? Oh no, this isn’t going to be like the tobacco wars at all. The antismokers never wanted to ban tobacco. That would put them out of work so they work with the tobacco companies to reach a compromise where they both profit. Can’t happen when you completely delete all use of a product. The oil wars are going to be a lot more vicious.

Really though, it’s about our ability to go places without being controlled. They don’t like that. They didn’t like us having places to gather and talk so they wrecked the pubs and everything like them. There has been a war against personal transport for a long time and it was always going to be banned one day.

Your 2040 electric car will have all the latest gadgetry installed. No need to worry about speeding, it will be incapable of exceeding the limit, even in an emergency. No need to worry about it getting stolen because the authorities always know exactly where it is and have the power to turn it off remotely.

A lot of people are going to think that’s all good.

Until they are driving somewhere the authorities don’t want them to go…

The ‘Devoid of Choice’ Generation.

It still makes me laugh to see companies with signs saying ‘This company operates a no smoking policy’. No, you don’t. No company operates such a policy because no company has any choice in the matter. Every company, every operator of every workplace and every place open to the public is obliged to prevent smoking on the premises. If they fail to comply they will be fined.

There is no choice. No amount of smug signs saying ‘we are making this rule’ changes that fact. You might as well put up signs saying ‘we obey’ because that is what you are really doing.

Hiding from that fact only emboldens the Health Nazis. They see such compliance as weakness and they know they have not reached any boundary yet. In fact there’s no sign of any such boundary. I suppose, denied the old fashioned persecution of anyone non-white, gay or otherwise different, the bigots out there have to have someone to hate and the Health Nazis have a target for them. Smokers.

They have more targets too. The overweight. Anyone putting salt on their food or swigging a can of chemical fizz. All lined up for when the last smoker has been dealt with.

Still, the war on smokers continues to its final solution

“We want to address this. Our vision is nothing less than to create a smoke-free generation.”

That’s a quote from Steve Brine, whose surname is going to get him into trouble with the Salties in the future. They want a salt-free world, Steve. No more brine.

But look closely at those words –

“…Our vision is nothing less than to create a smoke-free generation.”

Ah, the new Aryan race. Moulded along lines directed by those who consider themselves lords over all. And to think, they object to being called Nazis.

This ‘smoke-free’ generation are not going to be asked if they want to play along and be part of Briny Steve’s ashtray-free Utopia. Oh no. That generation will be created by the Salty Fuhrer and his coven of We Know Best.

You won’t have the choice, kids, and you’ll be so proud that you have no choice that you will crow about your non-smoking even though you will never get to try it. You will not be allowed to try it and you will obey.

Oh I know there are antismokers out there thinking ‘Excellent. No more smokers’. They don’t see it, do they? Once you are obedient there is no end to it. No salt. Obey. No meat. Obey. No milk. Obey. No booze. Obey. No socialising without State supervision. Obey.

Oh I know, you’re thinking ‘Well I don’t smoke but they won’t make me give up meat’. They won’t make me give up smoking either. It’s not for us. It’s for their Aryan generation of your kids and grandkids and then on forever. The obedient drones they want to create. You want that as your family legacy? We’ll all be reviled as the filthy ancestors who ate burgers, swilled beer and drooled over meat pies with salty chips. Our headstones will be smashed to rubble to pave the pure streets of Obedience Utopia.

Sure, we’ll be dead, why should we care? Why should we care that our descendants will be drones for the elite (who, incidentally, won’t be giving up anything)? Why should we care if the Earth turns into a planet of slaves to be worked and culled and occasionally harvested for the entertainment of a few utter arseholes? Why should we care that Mount Olympus will be staffed by human gods in the future? Why should we care that our children’s children will live their lives in terror of saying a word out of place and ending up ‘on the farm’?

As fertiliser, not driving a tractor.

Why should we care that our great-grandchildren will watch each other constantly, hoping for that buzz of reward when they hand in a wrongthink criminal and get a pat on the head for it?

Ah, maybe I’m exaggerating – but look around. How much of it is in place already? We have ‘bacon crime’ as a real imprisonable offence. Really, we don’t have far to go.

Smoker persecution was just the start. It soon moved on to other things. Smoker eradication is, likewise, just the start. This smoke free generation will be an obedient, choice free generation. They will not smoke. Not because they don’t want to, because they have been told not to and they will obey. Just like those businesses who pretend that being smoke free is their choice, that generation will pretend it’s their choice too. It won’t be. They will not smoke, or drink, or ever taste bacon or beef or chicken, because it will not be allowed. They will be conditioned to believe it was their choice. Just like those businesses with their no smoking policies.

It’s better to believe you chose that path than to accept you were forced onto it, for many people. Not for me. I will not accept force but then school wasn’t a conditioning factory when I was there. They taught us how to think, not what to think. We are no use to the Briny Steves of the world, they are waiting for us to die and, in the meantime, silencing us with political correctness and poofterphobia and dynamitewaistcoatophobia and racism and all the other bollocks. None of it is real for pretty much all of us but their upcoming proto-Aryans believe every word. Especially the made up words. Oh and the suckers who currently enjoy ‘protected status’? Oh you are going to have a really shitty time, very soon.

In the future your grandkids will not smoke and they will convince themselves it’s because they don’t want to. I am not promoting smoking here, I am promoting choice. The choice to not smoke is as valid as the choice to smoke. When you don’t have the choice then you are nothing more than an obedient drone.

Is that what you see for your family’s future?

The vapers will soon point out that the UK Health Nazis have now decided to allow vaping to help with cutting down on smokers. Yeah, don’t get too cheery about it guys. You have not had a reprieve, you have had a stay of execution.

When they finish us off, do you really think they’ll leave you alone?

If you do, you’re going to be very, very disappointed.

 

 

The winds of change

Things are changing fast now. Newspaper columns are now coming out with a lot of anti-anti-smoking stuff that would never have made it into print even a few short months ago. But there’s a more serious wind changing. A very dangerous one indeed.

This particular wind has done a complete about-face in the last week or so. It switched from its prevailing direction, which it has held for many years, very abruptly indeed. It’s now blowing in the opposite direction – not as fast yet but it’s picking up speed.

In the UK, a Sikh group has called for the paedo rape gangs to not be labelled ‘Asian’. That term includes Sikhs, Hindus and other people who have had absolutely nothing at all to do with the organised paedo gangs. So the Sikhs are saying ‘call these bastards what they really are and stop lumping us in with them‘.

Quite right too, but why didn’t they say this before? Oh, it seems they did…

“One of the demands in the Sikh Manifesto that we published a year ago before the General Election was that the government should encourage public bodies and the media to abandon the use of the term ‘Asian’ when describing perpetrators for reasons of political correctness.

“If the four men that have been found guilty and carried out the abuse were Pakistani Muslims, this is how they should be described and not called Asian.”

A year ago. Nobody reported that at the time, as far as I remember. They’re reporting it now.

It’s also been mentioned on Twitter that most of these ‘refugees’ are men of fighting age. Not elderly, not children, fighting age men. And they have been allowed to run riot without any let or hindrance. I’ve often wondered why that is. I mean, what does it achieve other than to rile up the native population? Then, when the politicians refuse to acknowledge there is any kind of problem, people get even more enraged. It seems, on the surface, a very stupid way to run a world.

It’s not though.

In America, the state of Montana has absolutely outlawed any kind of implementation of Sharia law. They’ve been allowing it up to now but all of a sudden, it’s all stopped.

Not a rollback. Not ‘well you can have this one but the serious stuff is for our courts’. Nope. All of it, stopped, all at once. Muslims are furious, even though I warned them this was coming repeatedly over the years. It’s shitstorm time, boys. Those are just two examples, not an exhaustive list. Bill Gates has told the EU their ‘let them all in’ policy is a disaster and the UN have admitted that unlimited immigration is idiotic. There are more and there will be more tomorrow. The wind gains strength daily.

I told you, Muslims, why they made you the favoured ones all this time. You were being set up and you were so arrogant that you walked right into it. You behaved exactly as you were meant to behave. Well, I have no sympathy. Blowing up kids in Manchester lost the last of my sympathy. But hey, you still have your Lefty loons and double-digit IQ celebs looking out for you. So all is not lost, at least for another week or so.

Labour are in a blind panic over the Grenfell inquiry. They have done everything they can to discredit the judge appointed to head it – Chukkus Yermoney has even said the judge is too white, too posh and too male for the job. How pathetic a reason is that? Thing is, he and the rest of Labour know what he’s going to find in there but too late, guys. He’s meant to find it. He always was meant to find it.

When he does, that changing wind is going to pick up a hell of a lot more speed.

All you lefties, all you apologists, all you Muslims, all of you have been following a plan that has nothing to do with Socialism. You have all been players in a much grander scheme than anything you could ever have dreamed up yourselves. Suckers.

And now you can’t stop it. Well, you could, but you branded me ‘racist-nazi-bigot’ after the first paragraph or two and aren’t likely to still be reading. You’ll be on Twitter whining about me by now. Anyway, you won’t be interested in trying. You can’t change your ways now. You’re too set in your indoctrination.

So the game has to play out to the bitter end. It will be very bitter indeed. It won’t be the UK, it won’t be Montana. it’ll be global. Canada’s PM has played his part in stoking the fire that’s coming and the changing wind will fan the flames.

You’ll call me names. You’ll threaten to contact my employer (hint: it’s me). You’ll threaten to have my benefits withdrawn (hint: I don’t get any and never have). You’ll disparage my books and the books I publish even though none of them are political. You’ll scream and threaten in your tantrum of impotent rage but that won’t change anything. The Plan will continue and you will not even try to stop it… and you lot are the only ones who could.

I didn’t do any of this. I just saw it coming. So call me all the names you want, issue all the threats you want, just don’t say I didn’t warn you it was coming.

Ten years ago.

 

 

 

Interesting experiments…

Donny Trumpton has decided to pull the USA out of the Paris agreement on man-made-up climate change.

He offered to renegotiate, but the EU said no. The EU does not negotiate. They make the laws and everyone else obeys. Well, that’s how they think it works, even now.

Naturally, anti-Trumpers are going to keep to the Paris agreement city by city whether Trumpy likes it or not. He can’t stop them and has no reason to try. What they do with local laws is not his business unless it conflicts with federal laws, and this won’t. He’s not making a law about ‘not doing stuff’, he’s rescinding a law about ‘doing stuff’. If you want to carry on doing the stuff, fine. There’s just no longer a law that says you have to.

Some cities and states will carry on as before, others will ditch the windmills and green schemes and that will be an interesting experiment indeed. Different systems at work within one country, within a single economy. Which one will fare better, socially and economically? The rest of the world should be watching with interest but they won’t.

Especially not the EU, who have declared that Trump cannot complete his withdrawal from the agreement within the term of his office. ‘The law is the law’. They seem to have overlooked a detail or two…

The USA is not part of the EU and if they choose to ignore laws declared as immutable by the EU, what is the EU going to do about it?

An embargo on trade with America? That means no more Microsoft or Apple products for a start. The NHS could find that… awkward. So could many other institutions.

Would OPEC stop selling oil to America? I think we’ll find that money shouts louder than morals. The big food producers are intending to keep the Paris agreement going because there is a serious amount of profit in it for them. Some American cities and states will keep it going to spite Trump but they’ll have to fund it themselves now.

Would the EU go to war with one of the biggest stockpiles of both nuclear and conventional weapons on the planet? That would be suicide. Think Russia would join a side? Hardly. Putin would break out the popcorn and try not to choke while laughing. China, India, Pakistan and the Middle East would not intervene in the West’s determination to wipe itself out. It would save them a lot of bother. Kim Jong Jingly Jangly would tell his people that he made it happen.

Really, apart from wagging the naughty boy finger at Trump, there is nothing anyone can do to stop him. He offered to renegotiate, the EU stated that the agreement was forever and cannot be negotiated. So Trump, in effect, said ‘screw you guys, I’m going home’ and he doesn’t even have to change the law back home. All he has to do now is not enforce it.

Not keep records, not fund any more windmills and solar panels, just ignore it. If he ignores it correctly it really doesn’t matter whether it goes away or not.

I don’t know if he has the wit to realise it but he could have just set up the biggest ever real-time experiment to test the claims of the Climatologists. Some states keep the Paris agreement measures, some states drop them. He should be publishing quarterly reports on how those states are doing. If the Paris agreement really has any worthwhile effect, this will show it. If it’s just more control freakery simply for the sake of control, this will show it.

Oh the Church of Climatology won’t like it. They risk exposure. They will deny any advance made by the non-compliant states and shout about the tiniest success in a compliant state. They will spin like dervishes.

See, you’re not supposed to question anything now. Questions are offensive. You are here to obey. Treaties are now forever – as long as they are the ‘right’ treaties. Renegotiation is not an option.

These are the same people who call other people ‘fascists’ and never suffer from irony overload. That’s a medical miracle.

Today’s news was not a surprise. Sir Trump of Madhair stated in his election campaign that he would do this and now he has done what he was voted in to do. Whether you agree with him or not (depends on whether you voted for him I suppose), you must surely agree that we could do with more politicians who actually do what they said they would do. There are very very few of them globally.

I didn’t vote for him because I’m not an American. I have to choose the least maliciously self-aggrandising liar on the ballot form in the UK next week. It’s a little difficult because I don’t trust any of them to do what their little leaflets say they will do. That comes from past experience. Still, the leaflets help heat the house.

I’m not sure whether Trump is a good president or not. He hasn’t been doing the job long and he doesn’t have much political experience. He’s good at business though, he obviously knows when to walk away from a bad deal. I wonder if whoever wins the UK election will have the same knowledge? From the list available it doesn’t look promising.

He has a lot of detractors and enemies, that’s for sure. Including the raddled harridan who posed for a picture holding a fake bloodied Trump head. Then went on a ‘pity me, I’m the victim here‘ binge while her lawyer stated that Trump’s 11-year-old son cannot possibly have been traumatised by the image. Her reasoning? ‘Everything Trump says is a lie’. That was really it.

The harridan went on and on about ‘detailed death threats’ without giving any details. I think one of the commenters beneath the article nailed it though. If she had done that a few years ago with Obama’s head, she wouldn’t get death threats. She’d have been killed or maimed already. That’s how Socialism really works. You are free to do as you are told or they’ll kill you.

I’ll be watching Trump’s experiment with interest. Especially the part where the EU expect him to do as he is told.

I really hope he doesn’t. If there are any Americans reading and more so if you are an Anti-Trumper, what say you? Should the president you despise bow to the Europeans and allow the EU to dictate how you must live? Would you really give away your country to spite your president?

Which one is the leader you want to follow?

 

Stupidity

I was listening to a kindred spirit, Foamy the Squirrel, this evening and he had a rant about stupid people. It was the usual totally over-the-top rant but he did have a point. I’m not sure he really made it though.

Here’s the rant for those who can take his wildness.

His point was that protecting stupid people with laws enforcing safety is dumbing down the entire race. We should let Darwin’s Natural Selection operate as intended. Well, we used to do that and while it was messy, idiots only did idiotic things once.

However, I’d go further.

My car has four wheel drive. Not all the time and (to my disappointment) it does not have a big lever to engage four wheel drive. The car does it all on its own. If the front wheels start to slip, it engages the back wheel drive all on its own.

It also has an automatic gearbox which I’ve decided is an idiotic machine. It changes up the gears far later than I would. Every time, I have gritted teeth as the engine revs climb and I’m thinking ‘change up, you bastard’.

I have only once tried to teach someone to drive. She paid for lessons instead.. You either learn it in the first five minutes or I give up teaching. I can teach you microbiology and I know it can take time because there’s a lot of it and some of it is hard, but a car only has a few buttons, pedals and switches. that matter. Mine has some I might never press… and it’s automatic, you don’t even need to learn gear changes.

The sunroof button (yes, the buggers make those electric too now) isn’t likely to get a lot of use in Scotland.

But I digress.

The car has all kinds of safety features that were once only found on Volvos. It means I can drive like a dick and know I have a better than average chance of walking away from a crash that will write off the car. I don’t drive like a dick because I blew my entire car budget on this one and can’t buy another one. But I could.

When I was driving my first car, a MkII Ford Cortina I bought for £75, it had no safety features. It barely had a dashboard. The steering was so loose I’d start turning the wheel a few metres before the corner. I took all the rubber plugs out of the floor to stop the leaks filling it with water and often drove it with only the driver’s seat installed. Sometimes it was even bolted to the floor.

It was a shit heap. So I drove very carefully indeed. If that car was totalled in a crash it was very likely to total me too.

Well okay, I did make the passengers jump now and then but the Cortina had corners you could see. Not like the modern ones where you can’t see where the front or back ends are. This was a rectangle when viewed from above and the driver had sight of every corner. I drove that thing through gaps with a quarter of an inch to spare each side. I wouldn’t do that with a modern car. The wavy lines look good but you’re never sure exactly how wide or long it is.

Nowadays I am older and a much more sedate driver (CStM will not mention TruckGate at this or any other point. It happened once and it was perfectly safe!).

I once drove a Ford Focus Estate for six months with nothing but the odometer functioning on the dashboard. I drove my Commer van in the same state for rather longer. Safety? Who needs it?

But to attempt to get back to the point, Foamy’s real argument goes beyond protecting stupid people. All this safety makes the rest of us complacent. Drivers who would have been careful drivers now think ‘well, I have seatbelts, air bags, side impact bars, I’m basically in a tank and I can take risks I wouldn’t normally even consider’.

It’s not just the idiots who crash any more.

It’s the same with tools. I have an electric sander (two, now, since I got a belt sander from my parents for my birthday) and they are festooned with things to stop me sanding my fingers off. I also have old style planes and saws that I am much more careful with because they have sharp edges and no safety features. I am much more likely to damage myself with the tools that have ‘safety’ features because the safety features should protect me – but they don’t always work.

Making safety a law was a bad idea. People expect to be safe all the time now. Even the ones who bang on about being ‘close to nature’. Nature is not safe. Nature is deadly. If you really want to be close to nature, try fending off an enraged badger naked and bare-handed. You have no chance. If you get stitched back together after that one, try a grizzly bear or a tiger – although if you are being all natural, no stitches.

Those are extremes. Total danger and total safety. Not so long ago, the human race had something in between. We called it common sense.

We didn’t go out in T-shirt and shorts when it was -10C and windchill took it down to -20C. We didn’t fight tigers naked. We didn’t drive with the belief the car was going to protect us with its safety features. We treated sharp tools – workshop and kitchen – with respect. We knew how to use weapons without bemusing the enemy by killing ourselves before they had a chance to.

For the upcoming generation, all that is gone.

Now, your personal safety is someone else’s problem and you can sue them for not doing it. Eventually, people will stop selling you anything you might hurt yourself with unless you sign a disclaimer first. Many of the new generation will refuse to sign so they’ll be carving the Sunday microwave roast with a spoon.

That assumes they still have roasts, what with acrylamide and the deadly bacteria imagined to be in everything. I think they can dish out boiled cockroach with a spoon safely.

There are books about the fall of ancient civilisations. They have a common theme. They died because they went soft. Scared of change, scared of anything that might hurt them, scared of death but waiting to die.

Even in fiction, it’s how great civilisations fall. Self hatred kills every one of them.

So did you think our Western civilisation would last forever? The Victorians thought the Empire was eternal and now we have British people wanting to apologise for it! I don’t hear those people demanding the Muslims apologise for the Ottoman empire nor for anyone else’s. That’s by the by, doesn’t matter. As the Brunnen G said, we deserve to die. They believe it as much as our Lefties, the difference is that our lefties don’t think it applies to therm.

This civilisation has run its course. Oh there will be another to follow, also believing itself eternal but it will die in time too. The Soviet Union, Rome, Etrusca, Greece, Egypt at the time of the Pharaohs, all were eternal and all are gone now. Time to move on.

I’m not scared by this. We will have a few fighters left, every time. There will always be those who rise against tyranny just as there will always be tyranny. They might lose but they will always try and there will always be more coming up the line.

Everyone is human. We are the same animal. We are a pack animal with a leader who is bigger and stronger than the rest. Somehow we got to the stage where the leader is more of a total twat than the rest but it won’t last. It never does.

The times, as Bob Dylan said. they are a-changing. For the better? Hahaha! As before they are changing to get to the same.

But there will always be that rebellious streak. Always.

If there is hope, it really does lie in the proles.

 

Goldstein

Goldstein was ‘the evil terrorist’ in George Orwell’s 1984.

He didn’t exist. Bombs went off, people were killed and maimed but the terrorist wasn’t real. It was all done by Government  agents.

Was it a warning, like the rest of the book? A tip-off to how it really works?

I mean, who gained from the recent attack towards Parliament over Westminster Bridge? It’s touted as an attack on Parliament but it clearly wasn’t. If it was intended to hit Parliament they’d have kept quiet until they got to the gates, not start the killing half a mile too early.

The attacker is conveniently dead, shot by a Government minder, so we can’t question him.

But who gains from this event? Islam? They just get shat on harder. They have gained no ground, no advantage, by an attack that kills innocent people and makes them look, once again, like evil dickheads. So who gains?

Who gets more power, more control, from these attacks? Islamists get bugger all from them. The government gets to clamp down harder and impose tighter controls and deeper surveillance and none of that stops future attacks,

I wonder if Muslims are being set up. If so, they’re falling for it, cheering on the attacks as if they actually did them, and getting further marginalised and more hated as the attacks continue. I have no sympathy. If you want to cheer the deaths of innocents then you deserve what’s coming.

You, Muslims, have been set up to be hated. And you have cheered on your own eventual destruction. If any country turns the entire Middle East into radioactive glass, who do you think will mourn you? We’ll have street parties, like you lot did after 9/11.

Oil? You think we need your oil? There is more under Alaska than there ever was under Saudi Arabia. The Americans haven’t touched their reserves there for a reason. They’re running yours out first.

And, yeah, it’s running out.

So is time.

Maybe you might want to think about not calling for so many beheadings. Or killing in general. Or suicide bombings. You are fast running out of options.

I have a feeling that Islam will be illegal within a decade and when it happens, you lot have nobody to blame but yourselves.

You just will not listen, will you?
