The Great Game

In the 1800s there was a great game being played by a few major powers in the world:  France, Great Britain and Russia.  Today, there’s still a ‘great game’ being played, and we’re the pawns.  There aren’t 8 pawns either side in this game, there are 7 Billion of them.  Just who are the Kings?  The way I see it there are a couple pulling strings here and that’s the USA and Russia.  The USA changed hands with Great Britain during WW1 and WW2 and became the principal player versus the Great Bear in the east. Great Britain has been relegated to Bishop.

The middle east has proven to become the gladiatorial battleground since the 1980s.  The whole system in the Middle East is self perpetuating.  It feeds off the fears and anger of the peoples of those areas.  The system benefits certain groups of people and what may not appear to be beneficial in the short term, is greatly beneficial in the long term.  Sacrifices in the early years reap benefits in the future.  Short engagements and wars, bombing campaigns at the expense of a million innocent lives will reap something in the next 20 years.  Chess pieces are being moved and in doing so, their domino effects have already been calculated down to the nearest probability.  Nothing is ever certain and now and again there’ll be a mishap – maybe ISIL/ IS / ISIS are a minor hiccup in the ‘great game’. Turkey shot down a Russian Jet because it strayed into their airspace.  If that was a US / UK or French jet would the Turks have shot it down, probably not as they’re all NATO : granted?

Bombing CampaignWhen it comes down to it, IS are pawns being played here and the right wingers in every country are being played too by feeding the recruitment drive for extremist organisations who reach out to the persecuted minorities based on race and religion.  The companies that produce the weapons are rubbing their hands together as their systems are being deployed, expended and the demand is there.  Who suffers?  The great adventurers who enforce foreign policy.

A friend of mine mentioned that the US are deliberately avoiding striking Fuel tankers.  I like to check out a wide range of Media sites and RT (Russia Today) ran a whole story on this phenomena.  The Turks haven’t lifted a finger to take on the IS group, their border with Syria is porous and this is the main transitory route to the group.  Being a member of NATO as well.  They soon began to shout and cry bloody hell when the Russians flew over their country.  Nothing like provoking a bear by prodding it with a pointy stick while ushering the Eagle over.  It reminds me of Schoolyard politics.

The self perpetuating system is feeding something and I can’t quite get my finger on it.  Whatever it is, it’s well hidden or disguised.  By money, most likely.  Weapons, Oil, the Saud Family…  I’m deliberately not going conspiracy theorist on you here.  I know the media is probably the most powerful weapon in the world in that it controls the moronic masses, those masses I see on Facebook, on a daily basis.  Pawns.  That’s all we are, and inevitably, worm food.

Don’t try and work it out, else you’ll tie yourself in knots.  There are so many variables at play here, results defined by our unique perceptions.

Kiss your children when you tuck them in bed and make sure they turn out decent people.

More Conspiracy Theories & World Chaos

The Matrix3

Remember when Keanu Reeves wakes up from that world in The Matrix? Perhaps that’s what the masses are under, some form of mass hypnosis. I’ve got an open mind. What if the world really was flat and all those physics were just a load of shite? What if there weren’t really 6 million Jews gassed in WW2?top10_conspiracy_holocaust What if it were the Jews that gassed 6 million Germans? What if Jesus did exist and was black? What if over 600,000 innocent people were roasted alive by the British and the Americans in 1945? What if the people that pulled the strings didn’t like the way President Kennedy swung and decided to rub him out with a sniper’s bullet? If a whole mass of people believe in something, doesn’t it become the truth?   There really is no such thing as the truth though, there’s only perception. Viewpoints and paradigms are unique to the individual, but what we can all share is the free will to exercise our belief within the base moral understanding we all share with respect to good and bad. So where’s the hard evidence? I didn’t see the Saturn V rockets blast off into space in the 60s and 70s. I didn’t come across any hard evidence – I mean that physical evidence that you can smell, touch and feel. That doesn’t mean I’m not disbelieving it either. Maybe the conspiracy theorists and the narrator of The Greatest Truth Never Told is a deluded nut job. I suppose that’s down to me to decide what to think.


The media have got the moronic masses by the balls. An image, video, sentence, quote taken out of context takes on a completely different meaning. It has the moronic masses on FB in a crazed stupor turning on each other. Stoke the fire, and if need be, put some sugar on it to stir things up. There’s a lot of ‘hot heads’ on the internet. The best way to sterilise your life of this is to not go on the Internet.

There’s a reason I don’t read one news source. I like to get a broad range of perspectives and then pick out the commonalities from all. There’s bias that shifts to the right and to the left: order and chaos. Some fucker is pulling all the strings and making sure everything walks in the same path – the moment someone or something steps out of line then it gets sorted out. There must be an element of freedom within the stage that we’re all playing.

FeedingDo we really have enough food to feed the planet several times over? We over produce, stockpile food, spend trillions on weapons and can’t even sort out a little territory dispute in the middle-east. That’s the problem here, it’s ownership and a sense of belonging. It was such big deal in the olden days, but nowadays that going obsolete with the advent of the aircraft and quick travel. The lines are becoming more blurred. We don’t have enough room to become divisive. We can’t simply put up borders and gates or we’ll get squashed. Granted there’s going to be problems, and that is inevitable with the introduction of so many different cultures. These normally die out in 2 – 3 generations and there’s the adoption of new customs or the hybrid of a mixture of cultures. You can run from this inclusivity, but you can’t hide. Identities are going to change – Britain isn’t what it was 75 years ago and it wasn’t 150 years ago or the previous 75 years. It changes beyond recognition every few generations and we yearn for those days to come back. I know I do – I loved the 1980s.

In 100 years time religion may not be around any longer. It may actually completely consume the planet. We may be 100% muslim, 100 christian, mix or a deformation of the two. The moment you get kick back and resistance then you’re faced with annihilation. With so many differences it’s hard not to come to blows somewhere along the line. Looking at Germany now and what Angela Merkel is doing… it’s going to cripple Germany, it’s going to destroy Germany. In destruction there’s the rebirth of a new nation. This could be something new, but there’s going to be problems with people assimilating each other’s culture/ religion/ and language. If Germany can ride out the storm of change and come out the other end, then you’ve got yourself a potential superpower here. As stated earlier – 2 or 3 generations, a couple of conflicts, lots of killing and eventually you should get a status quo; an equilibrium – the ripples on the pond should lessen and hopefully we’ll get onto the task at hand. The task of course is getting off this rock and releasing the pressure of over-population here. If not, something will have to give and it will go pop.


Okay… Paris has been hit again by a load of jihadis. A lot of blood spilt and minds fractured.  It looks organised and prepared at least a couple of months in advance. The people preparing these attacks had contact with each other and bataclanwere residents of other countries such as Belgium, France and Germany. We can no longer differentiate people’s nationalities through name only. John Smith and Abdul Mohammed may be just as British as each other. People talk about immigrants being to blame Muslims and immigration. You’re playing into the hands of IS when you start thinking that way and are in actual fact an arm of the Islamic State. You will be doing exactly what the IS want you to do and stir up hatred in migrants/ muslims and improve their recruitment campaign. Then again, try explaining that to many of the right wing nut jobs, who can barely speak English never mind comprehending the games IS and the media are playing here.

The moronic masses are being played a trick and they better get wise or it’s going to fuel a fire that will burn up most of the world. See through the IS for what they are, and that’s an organised, bunch of lunatics who claim to be part of a religion that shares it name with Islam. Monotheistic, Abrahamic ideologies need to be banned because they’re fucking dangerous. The sooner the world goes 100% atheist the better. Perhaps we need to somehow prove what happens to you when you die.

Couple of points here : It’s not Hollywood. It’s real, it hurts, and the mind is fragile. There’s a lot of people suffering mentally and it’s the survivors who suffer. The UK had lost generations in the 20th Century due to world conflict – it also help boost the brewery industry and increase the levels of domestic abuse.

Conspiracy Theories and the Great Russian Adventure

It’s the 2nd October and I’m writing the first blog post since January. The news is buzzing with yet another shooting at a US school and yet again the powerless President, who can bomb the fuck out of people in the middle-east with war planes, but can’t change his own gun laws.

Police State United States

Police State United States

This puzzled me until I heard a survivor of the latest shooting speak about the incident. The survivor (wounded and probably deserves a Purple Heart) said that they should have more guns to protect themselves. She also stipulated that if the other students were armed then this wouldn’t have happened. Another speaker mentioned about an ‘evil’ man and some ‘righteous’ people killing him. Well, all I can say is, thank fuck I don’t live in the US. Sounds pretty fucked up. Some people have flawed logic with religious overtones and I’m thinking there’s no hope for the US. Some people are still living the 1700s with amendments and bearing arms etc etc. This isn’t Hollywood, and those other survivors can probably tell you that.  Oh well, here’s to the next US massacre.  Sacrificing children for the sake of an amendment?  Is that a fair exchange?  Arming them to fend off ‘evil’ people?  Is that going to work?  Nah.  I don’t think so.

There’s a problem here and it’s endemic in the human species. We simple don’t perceive risk until it’s staring at us in the face, ready to kill us, maim us, and scare the shit out of us. These events will change people, turn them to religion and blame their luck on divine intervention. Some will be irreparably damaged, the scars running deep into their mind, haunted by guilt and tracing events that led up to the trauma. Time dislocates us from the immediacy of the trauma, unless we were intimately affected, directly or indirectly, we will forget and make the same mistakes that led us to the same event.

About as good as the Daily Mail

About as good as the Daily Mail

World War 2 and its horrors are testament to this, and yet, through the decades there are conspiracy theorists arguing the death toll of the industrial style killing of the camps. Conspiracy Theorists argued that there were significantly less than 6 million people slaughtered at the hands of the Nazis in their camps and by the action of the einsatzgruppen. I remember watching the documentary, that was narrated by a computer generated voice and thinking, who gives a damn whether it was only 2 million. Only 2 million (not sure if that was the figure they quoted)? Even it were only 300,000, it’s still a war crime and just as sick. A US Officer, upon entering one camp wanted everything filmed and photographed so that no one could deny it ever happened.

As flat as a pancake

As flat as a pancake

Despite this, people still deny it. Alongside this youtube video documentary there were other videos claiming that the earth was flat ‘The Flat Earth Society’ and that the ‘Moon Landings’ were fake, 9/11 attacks were caused by forces other than Al Qaeda. I’d look at the 9/11 documentaries and give them some real consideration as I do think that there is something else going on here – I don’t think it was caused by the US government. I think there were some serious fuck ups with regards to security and there was a cover up with regards to evidence. There will be and are plenty more people dying today and in the future due to the dust inhalation on that day and subsequent days following. A major constituent of the building would have been Asbestos and I’m sure there was plenty of those fibres being breathed in.

In Syria we’ve got the Russians intervening and the US are bumping their gums about collateral damage, civilian deaths…. Fuck me! Look who’s talking! What’s the US been doing the past 20 years in the Middle East? I bet it’s a lot longer. The Iraqis are more than happy to get the Russians on board, in fact they’re not fussy who helps them out. The Aim of the US and GB would be for the pacified countries of the Middle East to sort out the problem themselves, else we will be there for the indefinite future. The Iraqi Army doesn’t have the leadership to forge ahead and oust the ‘Daesh’ from their soil. Inevitably there will need to be a soldier presence on the ground from the western alliance. The Russians say they’ll be airstriking every fucker that opposed Assad – that includes the US and GB. Now there’s a potential flash point if I ever saw one. There’s been plenty in the past and this is no exception. I reckon, eventually, we’ll see masses of troops from the Ruskies and this will increase their Middle Eastern influence bringing them on par with the west.



Rise of the Bear and the Baby Factories of the IS

boris-nemtsovA Russian politician is shot dead on the streets of Moscow?  An opposer of Putin administration.  Well, there’s no surprises there then.  We can see the rise of the Russian bear, insidiously land grabbing the territories that claimed their independencies in the 1990s.  This is the first real threat to world peace since the early 60s.  I think the safest place to be right now is in the mountains of Argentina in the south of the country.
+++++Proxy wars have been going on for many years now.  In recent times since World War 2, we had the Korean War – a war between China and the USA.  The Viet Nam War – USA versus Russia.article-2388237-05C49D8E0000044D-369_634x504  The Afghanistan War – Russia versus USA.  Kosovo was a close call when the Russians decided to take Pristina Airport.  Now we have the Ukrainian troubles – USA versus Russia.  The Baltic states voiced their concern, but they’re members of NATO, the Russians wouldn’t stir up a hornet’s nest there, would they?  I’m stocking up on the cans of beans in the shed and planting tomatoes in the garden, just in case the balloon goes up: dig for victory and all that.


Baby Factories on the move

I wanted to steer away from IS, but I can’t.  It’s simple lies and deceit and trickery to entice young Muslim women to travel to their Caliphate to become baby factories.  Three girls failed by the government and the intelligence services?  I think that’s a little unfair.  There’s only so much the government can do without turning the country into a ‘Big Brother’ state.  The people to blame here are the parents.  That’s a bold statement, I know.  How did the three girls get out of the country?  There’s a counter argument to this.  You could say that society has alienated these people and that this is an escape to a better life, a clearer vision of the future.  Or so they think.  I’ll retract the blame on the parents.  I’ll apportion most of the blame onto them.  You can’t stop an 19 year old from going over there to fight for the IS.
+++++Like some soldiers in our ‘Legal’ armies, they’ll soon find out the harsh realities of war.  The kinetic energies involved and what the human body, mind can and can’t cope with.  Soon, they’ll come running, if they survive.  There’s a 19 year old boy soldier gone over there to fight IS.  Why?  It’s over 2,000 fucking miles away.  Why should it matter?  He’ll come back fucked up in the head, if he survives.  If not, the dogs will eat his body.  Let the Iraqis, Syrians, Turks, Jordanians and Iranians deal with them.  We’ve been bled enough for the oil under the ground.
+++++Those three sperm bags, sorry, but that’s what they’ll become, will be impregnated as soon as they’ve given birth.  Hopes of male offspring will abound, looks of disappointment at the birth of girls.  All for some vision of a future where women will be incarcerated in their Kitchens and Baby Rooms or Hospitals, while the men go off to fight the ‘Jihad’.

Knee jerk reactions from disenchanted Muslim teenagers are akin to clicking the agree button to an African offering $1,000,000 in bonds in a Spam Email.
+++++What do we do?  I saw somewhere that RE – Religious Education was now needed back in schools like it’s never done before.  I agree.  It needs to be balanced though.
+++++This integration into the known world, the mixing of creeds and religions will spark little ‘earthquakes’ while we meld.  If we don’t co-exist, we need to get off this fucking rock and colonise other rocks – Mars is next on the menu.  Then we’ll fuck that place up as well.

Deception and Lies on Social Media

Rhonda Smolarek wrote a short article on LinkedIn about the social media and it reminded me of a ‘Facebook’ discussion a few month ago that went sour.  A video of a US policeman punching the crap out of someone on the ground by a busy interstate was posted.  What intrigued me more was the reaction of the Facebookers.  I’m calling them facebookers as they take on a different persona than their real/ corporeal ones.  They all assumed on face value that the Policeman was punching the person because a. She was black or b. She was black or c. She was black.  Immediately a complete mistrust and assumption that the White US Policeman was a racist who liked punching old black women at the side of a busy interstate.  I posed the question as to why the Policeman was punching the crap out of the woman and the response was pretty abusive to say the least.  I asked what happened prior to the video clip?  What was the reason behind the attack? Ex Girlfriend From the further responses I understood what the term ‘Troll’ meant and decided not to continue and left the conversation.  It was pointless continuing as people who posted the clip had already made up their minds when they posted it.  In effect it wasn’t a discussion, but a joint call for outrage.  There’s a reason why these people will sit in their living rooms and comment on stuff and not make any real impact in a court of law.  It seems that the whole social media phenomena has altered how we interact and influence the world.  It draws on moods and motives we would normally inhibit around real people, it pulls out alternative versions of ourselves, as to how we want to be viewed.  For many people it’s escapism and some of the things posted are to simply to evoke responses from the cyber masses.  The whole organism, the whole multicellular community is host to influence and will sway and move in a manner the protagonist’s want.  The media have been doing this for a couple of centuries and they’re very good at only showing you a portion of the facts, whilst not lying to you, but leading you down the wrong rabbit hole to a conclusion divorced from reality.  Only recently have the ordinary person been enabled to wield this power – vloggers, bloggers, Facebookers and Twitterers alike.  The consumerists among us are vulnerable to this, such as those poor, hapless Facebookers who were subjected to that video clip of Police aggression.  No thought had gone into motives and reasons for the attack – I didn’t make any assumption or come to any conclusion with regards to this at the time as there was insufficient information.

Propoganda/ bullshit on the internet

Propoganda/ bullshit on the internet

+++++The expressional release of ourselves or our virtual selves can be seen as a healthy output for many of us who cannot express ourselves in the real world whether it be for health or psychological reasons.  But for many as Rhonda mentions in her potent article, there is a lie and in a sense we’re losing ourselves to media influences such.  There are parallels to the host of young people who flock to the middle east in the illusion that they’re fighting for some romantic cause for the Islamic State.  Cast your minds back a century to those German and Commonwealth soldiers who marched to war, smiling, banners flying, crowds cheering,  only to have their minds dashed away by the reality of war.

The New European Frontline

There’s a price to pay for technological advances in transport and the death of colonialism.  The EU, the inclusivist, leftist acceptance of other races, nations, religions and creeds have brought with them a whole range of problems.  The 20th Century has really fucked us up – we were on a trajectory for ruling the world, then someone went ahead and scuppered our plans.  Fuckers.nacht
+++++Now we’ve got integration, extremism, feminism, liberalism, nazism, racism and any other type of ism you can think of.  Our destination is fraught with difficulty, one which we’ll be fighting elements within ourselves that want to change the society as a whole.  A sort of revolution if you like, but with a saboteur, partisan, asymmetrical slant.  There’s going to be the sort of unrest Germany saw in 1920s and 1930s in wider Europe, but not against the Semitic race, but against religions.
+++++Today there was a scene in Paris that could have been the scene out of a Hollywood movie.  I kept on thinking about the street shoot out in Heat when I saw the holes that a volley of 7.62 short rounds had done to a Police Car’s windscreen.  There’s a lot more of ‘them’ here in Europe than we think and it’s going to get worse.  If anything it’ll keep us on our toes I suppose.


Anti Islam Protests in Germany and the Fifth Reich

The Fifth Reich is in danger of raising its head if the rallies in Germany carry on.  It looks like the rallies of the 1920s in Germany, except this time Germany isn’t on her knees so maybe this wave of dissent might wane.  But we’ve got growing waves anti-Muslim in the UK – these flames are being fanned by events overseas.  Coupled with this we’ve then got the divisive US, a fractured country with many problems ahead for herself.  The American people will need to stay strong, unite and overcome their differences, and sort out their political and enforcement problems.  Looking from afar, this sort of reinforces my analogy of school days.  We’re still in Primary School here – Year 4.  I doubt we’ll ever start to drop borders because many of us are in Infants’ School – Year 1 or 2.

We were pretty stable, barring pandemic here and there, back before the 19th Century, then when we started to bring weapons onto the scene and use them in an industrial capacity we started to get closer to midnight.  That’s the doomsday clock.  We’re currently at 23:55hrs.  Back in the 19th Century we were years away from midnight.

You’re probably wondering where the Fourth Reich went.  It’s already here.  Angela Merkel is its head.  She’s in charge and it’s all our fault.  We’ve got ourselves to blame.  We were close to bombing Germany into the Stone Age back in the 1940s.  We showed merciless ferocity that matched the Nazi’s Zeal.  I think, ultimately it was jealousy that started the 2nd World War and the Germans did what the US wanted to happen to the UK. Empire 01 The US were vocally opposed to Empires and didn’t like the UK for that reason despite claiming Hawaii and Guam in the Philippines.  Adolf Hitler went down in Berlin and took the British Empire with him.  It seemed the vortex in Berlin that was his bunker sucked in all that British influence with him, all that money.  Looking at it from the other side, the UK were slaughtering the natives in Western Africa at the turn of the century,  Benin and all those smaller countries, their treasures raped.  What did Germany have?  A small country in Western Africa – the Germans were pretty brutal there too.  All in all Europe was a Kindergarten full of 2 year olds and we got into a fight over the spoils of the world.

Glasgow is suffering for the second year on the trot.  They hit the headlines.  6 Dead on the streets of Glasgow.  What the fuck!?  Islamic terrorists!?  NO!  Apparently the driver of the rubbish truck was slumped over the wheel.  Might be a heart attack.  3 days from Xmas?  That’s way too close.

Also in the news: the mummified remains of a woman was found in her home.  She was thought to have been there for 7 years.  How the fuck can this happen in the 21st Century???  Simple.  We don’t have that community spirit anymore.  Some comments were that people should call on their neighbours during Xmas.  I endorse the spirit of Xmas, but it shouldn’t just be for one time of the year.  It’s like all these charities that come out of the woodwork at Xmas.

Satan Claws

Santa Claus, or should I call him Satan Claws.  There are rumours that his red cloak came from the Coca Cola’s attempt to increase their sales.  That wouldn’t surprise me.  His cloak, some say, was green back in the day.  Santa sprouts from a variety of sources.  satan claws 1Saint Niklaas in the Netherlands to Agia Nik in Cyprus, Satan was called ‘Old Nick’ and there are effigies and images of an old man giving out gifts such as food to the community.  Some say this character was the Greene Man or even Jesus.  The Greene Man, if he knocks on your door has to be let in, or your crops will fail. A lot of folklore gravitates around what it most important to people – fertility in the land and the womb and life after death.  Not sure who made Nicholas a saint, but I’m sure as rumour, legend and heresay go all these things are things we throw into the soup of time and eventually they get mixed up and before you know it, you’ve got yourself something that keeps a smile on your child’s face.

For me Christmas is just some opportunity for these conglomerates to rip you off, to raise your stress levels when you’re shopping at the last minute like every fucker else.  That’s why I shop at 5 in the morning at the 24 hours Sainsbury’s.  Yes, I get up at about 5am because I’m old.  All these charities come out of the fucking woodwork.  If we had Communism we wouldn’t need these fucking charities.  It’s a time of giving they say, a time of rejoicing, so what about the rest of the year?  I took my 3 year old to see Santa on Saturday.  £7 to queue up for 30 minutes for an audience with an overweight, sarcastic, piss taking bloke in a Red suit.

“What would you like for Christmas?” He asks my daughter.
“A house,” she says.
“A house?  2 or 3 bedroomed?  Semi-detached, detached??”
“A pink house,” she replied.  Always pink.  Everything has to be pink.

My 11 year old son went to see Santa too – even though he knows Santa’s a myth concocted by the Bourgeoisie/Capitalistic classes to fool the lower classes.  Anyway, he said he was on the good list and not the naughty list, which was a fucking lie!!  They’re both monsters!  NAUGHTY LIST!!  They’re on the fucking top of the list!…… Rant over.

I’ve just taken out the paper rubbish and it’s warm outside.  It’s the 22nd December for christ’s sake!  The warmest year on record.  Prepare for new species.  We’re going to get immigration in the animal kingdom.  In fact we’re seeing it already.  There are species of marine life that normally live off the coast of Turkey.  They’re hanging around the southern coastline of Britain.  If you live on the coast, I’d start thinking about moving inland.  For your grandchildren’s sake.  Already we’re seeing an increase in erosion of the coastline.  We’ve got plenty of land, but if we build houses everywhere it’s going to look like one gigantic Milton Keynes.  Fuck that.  We’re going to be consumed by the sea soon, so I think the building of floating communities is the realistic solution.  It’ll be a while before we have large communities outside of earth so we might as well start looking under or on the sea.  We’ve already got thousands of people on Oil rig installations and when the oil runs out this may be the only avenue of revenue.

Religious extremism, Islamaphobia and Proportion

Murdering 132 children and 9 staff, many of them Muslim, is not going to help your cause.  In fact it’s going to help build up a resistance base to fight against the people who did this.  The people who did this belong to the group known as the Taliban.  What was the reason?  Through terror and fear?  Do they require obedience?  Do they require submission?  Shall we bow down to their demigod and convert to Islam?  If this is a taste of things to come, then I’m not particularly attracted to this sort of practice.

Not a very good way of attracting supporters to your cause.

Not a very good way of attracting supporters to your cause.

It doesn’t look too appealing to me.  I don’t pray to any god at the moment and I like eating pork.   I don’t want to see people shot, beheaded or burnt.  It’s not a very nice looking religion – in fact it looks fucking vile.  So – that ISIS style religion isn’t for me.  So… terror and fear tactics – does it work?  We’ve seen this over and over again and unfortunately for the dullard ideological fanatic, they obviously haven’t thought this through.  This sort of tactic has been tried and tested in the past, but hasn’t achieved their own objectives.  As fractious as they are and as fractious as Islam is, this may have serious ramifications on people’s views on Muslims and the Taliban.  Some would even link both in their entirety.  For the majority of the Muslims out there I think it necessary for them to ally themselves with the rest of the world to stem this wave of ideological barbarity.  The Taliban and their ilk are attempting to shake a hornets’ nest and it will only be a matter of time before we see something large happen.  Demonstrations in Germany have begun against Muslims.  Islamaphobia is on the increase.
+++++Let’s not kid ourselves, the practice of beheadings, burning people alive in the name of a religion occurred lots of times in Europe 16 – 18 generations ago.  Not a history buff, but 16-17th Century practices are being practiced in a 21st Century world.  I have friends who are anti-Muslim for this reason.
+++++The massacre of large populations of people are no stranger to our allies either.  Take ourselves for instance during World War 2 when we dropped tonnes of explosives on civilian population centres; after it was deemed immoral back in the 1930s to do such a thing.  It’s a War crime, isn’t it?  How do we know there aren’t allied POWs down in those cities, burning?  Not everyone in Germany supported the Nazi regime back then.
+++++The US in the phillipines massacred thousands of civilians over a century ago.  Bombed civilian population centres in Germany and Japan in World War 2.  They even went over to Viet Nam and fought the North Vietnamese Army, costing the US over half a million US casualties; many of them suicides.
+++++That doesn’t absolve the group who murdered 132 children and 9 staff.  Definitely not.  Though, dare I say it this has been going on, on a weekly basis in the Middle East (Syria, Iraq) and in Western Africa.
+++++Seven people a day die in the US through gun crime.  Until those who uphold the possession of these weapons experience the loss through gun crime I think this politically sensitive issue will not be resolved.
+++++The world police over the Atlantic, do they dictate what is morally right, or what it an outrage?  Do they have the outrage thermometer?  Or do they hold up the placard that says – BE ANGRY?  When the planes hit the towers, the Pentagon and crashed into a lonely field in Pennsylvania – there was outrage.  Many people died in those atrocities.  But if we only take the figures, the numbers here and compare them to the War Dead on the first day, the first hour of the Battle of the Somme, June 1916, this pales into insignificance.

Storm Troopers join the slaughter

Or the Battle of Verdun where a total of over 2 million casualties were sustained.  What did we have to record the events back in 1915 – 16?  Letters and the odd surviving, worn photograph, slightly frayed at the edges.  In 2001, we were surging in our telecommunications, media, technology.  Every facet of the electromagnetic spectrum was being strummed like the chords of a guitar with information transfers.  Millions upon millions of bits and bytes of info up until the nose of the airliner smashed into the floor of the tower.  As astonished workers raised their hands in self defence and thousands of gallons of aviation fuel flooded the building, pulses of information streamed to loved ones and to the world.  That’s it.  It’s recorded in visceral, minute, painful detail.  Every thought and plea is recorded, transmitted and is still travelling through space and is about 13 Light Years distance from us now.  Alpha Centauri ; our galactic neighbour, if there’s life… and it has the means to pick this up and understand it will be thinking.  What the fuck?  If they have the technology – do you think they’d bother to come over, covering the vast distance of space.  Nah,  they’ll probably think – by the time we reach there, they’ll be extinct.
+++++I think we need to grow up here.  We, meaning bipedal humans.  It’s like we’re still in the pre-college years.  We’ve come out of the Infants school and we’re still trying to deal with each other in Primary School.  There’s rivalry on the schoolyard and we’re still getting into fights.  The other kids will crowd around us and chant ‘FIGHT, FIGHT,FIGHT!!’  ‘ or ‘PILE ON!!!’  At school, I was generally the one on the bottom!
+++++Maybe we need a headmaster?  The US or the UK doesn’t really have a good credit rating when it comes to morality so that’s them off the list.  How about the friendly people of Luxembourg?  I know fuck all about Luxembourg – isn’t that a good thing?  I mean, all we seem to hear about is how bad people are.  Luxembourg would be an excellent host for a Supreme President of the World.  I think we would need someone strong enough to control the many different peoples of the planet.  Makes me think of the Tito of Yugoslavia who held together 8 mini nations and 7 ethnic groups yaddee yaddee yah.  Saddam Hussain was a strong leader, but he was a ruthless fucker who massacred people.  Uncle Jo Stalin, was a paranoid, lunatic – murdered millions of people – so no good.
+++++Democracy would probably be a bad thing here.  Look how complicated it is.  The US political system is that complicated they can’t even ban guns.  This new government – or Regime…. or System should be Totalitarian / Dictatorial, but in the interests of the majority here on the Earth.  If we’d done something earlier in the 20th Century, then maybe we’d enjoy some of Arthur C Clarke’s visions of the 21st Century right now.  Trips to the moon and Jupiter.

Black Friday’s Sheople

Have you heard of the word Sheople?  I read it while looking at Facebook posts on another phenomena the UK has adopted from the US… like sheep.  It’s how people react when there’s a bargain shouting at you : 75% OFF!  MUST GO!  We rely heavily on morality and that unspoken code of conduct like waiting in queues and opening doors for the elderly.  Some naive people in positions of authority (supermarket stores) think that the Police are going to waltz in and become security guards.  If the stores got trashed on Friday and they’re pissed off about it, then that’s their stupid fault.
+++++I saw parallels between George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead and those scenes at the shops on Friday.  There’s a science on crowd behaviour and it’s an interesting one.  Have you noticed the concertina effect on motorways as motorists slow down to see the accident on the opposite side of the road?  This has a major impact kilometres behind the scene and seldom takes minutes to take effect.   Crowds of people are blobs of bacteria that swell and congeal, split off and react differently when in low numbers.  A well placed Tazer with about 110volts going through it might have sorted the disorder out.
+++++I might be speaking out of turn here, but fuck it if I am.  People fighting over a flat screen TV breaks the boundaries of pathetic and I’m pleased we are not in that circle.  I live in the old world where there are manners and politeness – that’s where I’m old fashioned and how I got here.  These people and they are ‘these people’ are opportunist dregs, sets me and my family apart from them, which isn’t a bad thing.
+++++So, the Supermarkets that put these schemes up, spawned from the US Thanksgiving only have themselves to blame.  Sheople will act like sheep and move where the urge is, where the bargains are.  The Zombies of the Romero movies acted in the same manner.  The World influence that is the US is steadily covering the world.  Our TV shows are spawned from US origins, our Legal practitioners are rubbing their hands together at the financial rewards as we stab each other in the back through libel/ civil claims.  Work is being more and more regulated as companies attempt to protect themselves.  First Aid boxes are being removed for fear of misdiagnosis of a band aid.  Our much cherished Common Sense may be under threat.  Couch potatoes are watching more TV as the shows are becoming more entertaining, more sitting down, more obesity and all the while the slim, big earners are looking proverbially down on the lower classes who have been subdued by the intoxicating pull of desire: TVs, fast food, Xbox, Social Media, Football etc etc.
+++++Would communism solve this?  Probably, with a decent, strong leader, but would I want that?  Not really.  I think it’s great we can make it if we want to and that is something I will hold onto.
