Angel or Demented

I try to live my life being a decent man. I feel that to be better than decent in this day and age is nigh on impossible. Particularly living in the capitalistic West, where the pursuit of money is seen as the highest good.

I suppose, when I see the people on t.v., I subconsciously compare myself to them – the politicians, celebs, and the outrageously wealthy, and I decide that I’m a pretty okay human being really. Sometimes I can just about convince myself I’m almost saintly.

Blowing or sucking?

Then on other occasions, I wonder if maybe I’m just a miserable, twisted, ungrateful, judgemental, disenchanted nazi (but enough about my good points).

It’s only words


My kids remind me, my missus reminds me, even my few remaining living friends remind me – I can be a grumpy, contrary, argumentative bastard – even when I’m in a good mood. My family only seem to get upset with me when I speak – I don’t know what’s the matter with them – they are over sensitive I think. They know I’m a decent man, so I don’t know why they get so cross over so little; just because I used the wrong tone of voice, or an inappropriate choice of words, miserable bastards.

I may appear to have an occasional moment of incandescence, and rant as though I’m prepared to cast someone to eternal damnation, even though I’ve never met them. It may just be some tosser off the telly or – it may be an advert, or perhaps a politician – it might even be the whole of BBC Radio 4.

But I’m never as angry as I appear to be, and I never wish to cause actual harm to any of the rich and famous, prostituted puppets, upon whom I so regularly vent my spleen.

Fake Rage

You see this…

I suppose “fake rage” is like a safety valve for me. I simply won’t let those hapless soul-whores dishearten me.
Fake rage is a way of transforming despair and hopelessness into something more positive and constructive. Well maybe not exactly constructive, more like amusing – at least for me, others don’t always see the funny side. They see a deranged middle-aged man shouting at the telly, whereas I feel only love.
It’s a way for me to cope with the egregious and ridiculous performance, that is force fed to us through all forms of media today, but particularly through television.

I seem to have convinced myself that because I wish no harm, that that in itself makes me a good person; and when I compare myself to almost anyone famous – it makes me feel almost like a saint.

..but I feel this

I suppose an absence of evil doesn’t necessarily make someone or something good. Anyway, it’s hard to work out where I am on the Angel/Demon scale – and even more difficult to work out other peoples position. I don’t have enough information to rate myself, let alone anyone else – but I still like to I try.

Don’t judge me

I probably shouldn’t judge others, but if they’re on telly regularly then they are asking for it.

I do have the right to judge myself – but that’s okay. I’m a good lawyer, the jury’s always very understanding, and I have a very lenient judge – so I usually get off with a caution.
I still swear at the telly and shock the family with my fake rage, bile, and apparent contempt, for seemingly innocuous celebrities. If someone is on the telly then they are inviting me to pass an opinion upon their very right to exist, with all the fake rage I can muster..

Perhaps I am being too harsh on the players in this pantomime. Possibly the participants in this perverse performance, rationalise their behaviour in the same way that I do when judging themselves; if indeed, they ever have time for self-reflection.

Sadly, it seems that if these twats from tellyland don’t hold themselves to account soon, they’ll make moral miscreants out of most of us. The influence of the cult of celebrity is pervasive and affects the thoughts and behaviour of so many people.

The rich and famous have their top lawyers to protect them from justice. Unfortunately, we don’t have anyone to protect us from the rich and famous. Lady Justice was blindfolded in sex games with royalty years ago and has not seen the truth since then. Her scales are used for weighing drugs, and her sword is used for chopping out lines of coke.

I’ll have a gram please

Lady Justice is neither a lady nor just. She’s just another cog in the machinery of power. She helps to maintain the status quo – ensuring that nothing changes, and that power remains where it has always been.

Out of sight.

Technology

TECHNOLOGY
How has technology improved our lives? Of course it has in some ways, but are the trade-offs we have had to make, really worth it? I wonder if modern technology is more of a double barrelled shotgun, than a double edged sword – with one of the barrels pointing right back in our face.

Is the internet a benefit to our children?

Bizarre pornography – once seen never forgotten- piped straight into the subconscious of very young children, via their phones, maybe on the way to school. If it’s particularly strange or weird, then it is immediately shared with friends. Boys especially seem to have an appetite for viewing the unusual and the extreme.

Social insecurity

Social media seems to mean social pressure, social pressure becomes bullying – and bullying makes people feel diminished – thereby causing loss of dignity and self-worth.
Some young people self-harm, and even go as far as suicide.
Some have other mental health issues., such as anorexia, paranoia, etc.
Some get into drink or drugs.
Some become bullies themselves.
Some withdraw from social interactions.

The list goes on, of the damage inflicted by people on each other, via social media. Upon the vulnerable, and especially children.

peek-a-boo, I see you

Yes, all of these social ills existed before Facebook etc., but they did not occur on anything like the scale that they are happening now.

There are of course many other related pressures contributing to the malaise.

Chat rooms

You’ve got chat rooms and forums on any subject you can imagine, – some from the depths of the sickest minds. Many of these are too dark and twisted for me to even think about. Please forgive my lack of research on the matter. There are things in the world that I just don’t want to know.

I see you’re wearing that little rabbit onesie like I told you

We don’t need to go int the details of what practices may be promoted, but when you consider a bunch of perverted sickos in a chat room, egging each other on, cross-pollinating their most abominable ideas, it must be truly horrifying.
Because they are sick bastards, they try to infect our pure and – am I going too far here? – innocent minds, with their disgusting disseminations. But enough of Hollywood.

Caught in the web

The world wide web (sinister name) created hackers, and hackers created the need for cyber-security; cyber-security systems are then established, and hackers are used to test their effectiveness. Then more – unauthorised/black hat – hackers, hack the system, creating a data breach. How can any of our data ever be truly secure? The next big information violation is only a couple of clicks away.

phish and chips

It seems like hackers have the same effect on the internet, as terrorists have on society. They are both, the cause of, and excuse for, ever-increasing security. Which basically ends up as more and more authority figures telling us they have the right to search us and spy on us and coerce us into agreeing to their terms (and conditions). Bit by bit we are giving up our freedom and privacy. Well, I don’t fucking like it.

So what am I going to do about it? Write an angry blog? Yeah! That will make all the difference.

Freedom to do as you’re told

I don’t go abroad, or to clubs or gigs, because I do not give anyone the authority to search me. It’s a matter of principal. I suppose it is sad really, that my lifestyle is curtailed by the establishment’s enthusiasm to clamp down on my freedom – although to be honest, it might just be my age.

It also appears that hackers like terrorists may be working for, or against our security services. It becomes very difficult to know who is on who’s side, and to be honest, if anyone is actually on ‘our side’ at all.

Optimistic memories

It takes longer today, to buy a packet of baccy or to put petrol in the car than it did 20 years ago. I thought we were supposed to have flying cars by now. That never happened, did it?

fuck off Harry, that’s not what I meant

We were led to believe that we would have robot servants in the future; now it seems like we’re more likely to have robot masters, any day soon.

Records were always more functional than c.d.’s. C.d.’s were meant to be indestructible – what a load of shite. Mine were always skipping or sticking, and sometimes even auto-remixing, and unfortunately, a sharp knock didn’t remedy the problem, as it did with a record player. We were certainly bent over and colonically pounded when we replaced our records with c.d.s.
Now, when you buy music you don’t get anything tangible at all, it’s a digital download. What’s the use of that – you can’t even butter toast or play frisbee with it.

Much of the music doesn’t need to be of decent sound quality, because most people – particularly the young – listen to compressed music files, through mediocre headphones or poor quality speakers from a phone or computer.

Mindlessly non-judgemental

Most of the main-stream music has very strange videos to go with it – for playing on M.T.V., YouTube and the like. Many of the images and behaviours in these videos appear to be conjured directly from Aleister Crowley’s darkest fantasies. https://allthatsinteresting.com/aleister-crowley.

God knows what horrific phantasmagoria are conjured up in the imaginations of the open-minded young people who watch these videos. Maybe they would be safer if they weren’t quite so mindlessly nonjudgemental.

To be honest, what would I know. I avoid these videos, and most pop music sounds shit to me, in fact, many popular songs make me feel actual physical pain when I hear them.

Please, no more grime

The music you listen to has a massive effect on the way you feel, including your emotional and mental wellbeing. Miserable depressing music surely creates a mood of depression and despair in the listener. There may be a time and a place for all music, but if you listen to angry or depressing music all day long, it’s going to make you angry or depressed.
It’s a good job I don’t listen to angry music, or fuck knows what I’d be like.

It’s no surprise that kids in the big cities are going around stabbing each other, if they are growing up listening to grime. I think I’d be stabbing my own ears if I had to listen to much of it.

I know that certain music has been played at high volume, as a form of torture for suspected terrorists, by the U.S. military in Guantanamo for example. My daughter regularly tortures me with stuff like Post Malone or Sam Smith, and it would only take a few bars of Nicki Minaj, or Elton John, for example, to make me betray my country. https://mic.com/articles/87851/11-popular-songs-the-cia-used-to-torture-prisoners-in-the-war-on-terror#.VpKeKdXtc

So has technology improved our lives? Well if you are a child grooming, porn peddling, social bully, who enjoys hacking computers, and watching fucked-up music videos, you must be loving it right now. Particularly if you hate freedom and good music. For the rest of us, technology is more of a mixed blessing.

BBC & Brexit

Bollocks


I’m still trying to get my head around this one. I listened to an awful lot of BBC pre-Brexit bollocks. And since the referendum, I have listened to even bigger piles of Brexit bullshit, from all sides of this disorganised brewery trip.

Granted, most of that came from Radio 4 – I don’t watch BBC TV because I won’t buy a television license to pay for my own indoctrination. In fact, I don’t watch any TV news at all. It’s damaging to my health – it makes me frustrated, miserable and angry; what’s the point?

Why do I need to know the ‘official version’ of what’s going on in the world? It’s too fucking depressing. Wars, starvation, climate change, plagues. The list goes on. Why do I need to be informed of all of this? Can I change any of it? I don’t think so.

Confused

The news, whether it’s from BBC, Fox, CNN, Channel4, etc. is always so tenebrific  https://www.merriam-webster.com/thesaurus/tenebrific. (it seemed like an appropriate word when I looked in the thesaurus).

Miserable bastards, fuck off and leave me alone. There is never anything uplifting or even comforting in any of these broadcasts. The best you’re going to get is confused – particularly when they appear to be trying to present a balanced view. Most of what we receive is one-sided propaganda.


My perception of the Brexit coverage was that I was being talked down to by everyone at the BBC. We were being advised that if we knew what was good for us, we would vote to remain with the E.U.

The real puzzle for me is how, after receiving Auntie Beeb’s advice, the British people were so determined not to do as they were instructed.

Naughty naughty.

There seemed little doubt, the pollsters had figured out, that we were going to vote to remain; only a stupid, racist xenophobe would want to leave the convenience and multi-cultural safety of Brussels.

Skew you

I read that influencers of social media (Cambridge Analytica, among others), were supposed to have digitally targeted certain individuals to skew the vote. However, the people that I know who voted to leave are not at all racist, do not hate immigrants, and don’t use social media. They voted to leave, primarily because they wanted to retain sovereignty or delay globalization.

This one’s for you Theresa

The main benefit of leaving the E.U. – if we are allowed to leave – is that when things go tits-up, we can hold the Monarch and the Prime Minister to account, execute them, and reconstitute Parliament so that it is fit for purpose – which it hasn’t been for years. It’s outmoded and outdated, and I don’t think anyone feels that they have a voice.

Government seems to be a financial exercise, and nothing more. Robbing Peter (us), to pay Paul (the banks). Surely it should be about running more than the economy.

I think we should be building gallows and guillotines, right now, for Theresa, Boris, Jeremy, the D.U.P. – in fact, all of our politicians, for the pig’s ear they have made of the whole Brexit debacle. Not one of them seems to have behaved honourably, or with integrity, or for the benefit of the country. In fact, I don’t recall hearing a single intelligent, constructive utterance from an m.p. since the vote. Not a sign of leadership from anyone. They are pathetic.

All of our so-called politicians seem to be acting in a way which is detrimental to the U.K. Why? All the while, the BBC is spreading doom and gloom. This must be Government policy because the BBC is not independent.

Limbo Bimbo

Have you no dignity, Theresa, you are embarrassing everyone.

We now have Theresa May trying to limbo under the bar set by the E.U. As she bends over backwards, with her hair scraping the ground, and her crotch thrusting upwards towards Michel Barnier’s disgusted face, and she tries to jerk herself spasmodically forwards, inch by inch. But she never gets very far before she fucks up and has to start again. For each successive attempt, the bar is lowered a little bit more. As we can see she is an embarrassing dancer and a worse negotiator.

Or is this the point. Our politicians are demonstrating that they are completely useless. They cannot be trusted with anything, therefore we need to remain within the E.U. – in the hopefully slightly more capable hands of Brussels. Surely Europe can’t fuck things up as badly as Theresa Comewhat-May.

via Gfycat

Or can they? Of course they can. There is not a single reason why the bureaucratic bullshitters of Brussels should be any more competent than the waffling wankers of Westminster. People are falling out with their governments right across Europe at the moment.

What can we do when the E.U. screws up? Get a cross-Channel ferry, and flood into Calais like an escaping army of illegal immigrants – desperate to get back home. Then perhaps we could persuade the yellow jackets to join us, and we march onwards to Brussels together, the people of Europe united as we overthrow all corrupt governments (are there any other types of government?).

Anyway, who would we execute when we finally reach E.U. headquarters? The bureaucrats are faceless, and who can identify their local M.E.P.? Call me old fashioned, but I think it’s essential to know whose head it is that I’m chopping off.

Altogether now.

Strange me advocating to retain Sovereignty, when I don’t even want to retain the Sovereign, now there’s another paradox.

Deutchland Deutchland: so good, they named it twice

Who do you think you are kidding…?


It seems ironic that the most economically powerful country in Europe, is the country which supposedly lost the First and Second World Wars. How the fuck did that happen? They even lost their finest scientists to N.A.S.A. and the O.S.S. (C.I.A.) in America. Not to mention their other top chaps who escaped to South America.

Credit to Germany though; didn’t they do well. Wasn’t one of the objectives of the Third Reich a unified Europe, led by Germany? Nearly there lads.

How did Germany become so economically and politically powerful?

National Wealth Service

I can remember that Britain seemed to have a fairly broad-based economy before we joined the Common Market. There was a substantial manufacturing industry, coal and steel industries, and the nation owned the utility companies.

Granted, we were still living off the spoils of hundreds of years of imperialist plunder, but that was all flogged off on the cheap by Margaret Thatcher. (Sadly, I cannot spell the sound of mucus being dragged from the back of my throat, and then hockled out as a mucilaginous glob of viscose phlegm, so you’ll have to imagine it).

Now our economy relies upon the financial sector, the service industries, and mountains of debt.

It is argued by some, that we were illegally taken into the Common Market in 1972, by the then Prime Minister Ted Heath. In fact according to Vernon Coleman – Britain never actually joined the E.U.

Heath has been accused by many of being a paedophile.He was also the person who proposed Jimmy Savile for an O.B.E. So Heath obviously had a perfect pedo pedigree, making him eminently blackmailable. He was always going to be somebody’s bitch.

You get the boat, I’ll get the kids

I realise the E.U. in principle could be a great idea. But how can we trust the people in charge? Whose interests do they serve, and how can you hold them to account? These questions cannot be answered on a National level, so it’s much more difficult to answer them on a Pan-European basis.


I know the E.U. is not to blame for everything that’s wrong, obviously, America has wreaked havoc upon the world for a hundred years or more, and with Trump as President… Well, who knows how that will end?

Divisive

Yes, Britain has probably had the most pernicious effect of all, and I think it’s time we started setting a better example. But that ought to be done by us finding a more intelligent cooperative and thoughtful way of living – and a more egalitarian way of running the country – instead of squabbling over the result of that divisive referendum.

Friends, families, and workmates have fallen out over Brexit. I wouldn’t want to fall out with anyone over it. Why can’t we have different opinions without hating each other for having them? It doesn’t have to be a disaster, but it will be if we let it.

p.s. I do not seriously advocate the execution of any royalty or politicians, although I think a certain amount of torture may be appropriate for some.

Whose Law is it anyway

Law

Call me cynical, but if you’re wealthy and well-connected, you can get away with anything; it’s the same story everywhere across the world.

funny handshakes

If you are poor – then you’re guilty. No money, no rights. Humans and animals are treated exactly the same.

But I’m innocent!

Stress

The only time most people would use a lawyer is for, a divorce, a death, or buying a house. In fact, all the most difficult, and stressful times of one’s life seem to require a solicitor to be there, earning shit-loads from an already very expensive and difficult situation.

As with brewers and bookmakers, pimps and pushers – there’s a lot of money to be made from misery.

But that’s all chicken feed to a top corporate lawyer or a good criminal barrister. These people can earn fortunes while making it possible for heinous criminal acts to go unpunished.

We have the super-rich with their super-injunctions, and ‘Non-Disclosure Agreements’, signed by all parties who are likely to witness their immoral and possibly illegal acts. No-one can testify against these people, without themselves breaking the law, and so the wickedness continues – a widely recognised, but seldom exposed – murky area of private/public life.

Just keep your mouth shut.

Not in the public interest

Not in the public interest, my arse. I think you should let the public decide whether or not it’s in their interest.

If someone wants to stand for parliament, or stand on a stage, or on a pedestal, or in any way promote themselves to the public, then we have a right to know about them. The more powerful they become, the more we have a right to know.

If some pop-star or footballer cheats on his missus, I don’t care. A dickhead behaving like a dickhead – who’d have thought it? He didn’t win the X-factor because of his economic promises.

However if an m.p. cheats on his wife, then he has betrayed a person to whom he has made solemn vows. How can we, the electorate, trust a man/woman who deceives their life partner. You have to ask yourself ‘would this person lie to me?’

Loophole lawyers

Then there are Corporations constantly breaking moral law as well as Criminal Laws. They retain teams of sharp lawyers, who twist the legal loopholes to the requirements of their Corporate masters.

There are dreadful acts committed every day against the common good. From polluting the environment to tax evasion, none of which could be accomplished without teams of lawyers, whose job it is to find ‘legal’ ways of cheating us, the people.

I’m not a criminal, I’m a lawyer.

I suppose the cost of a brilliant and completely immoral person is totally prohibitive to all but the major corporations and the super-rich.

To represent that which they know to be evil, is wickedness itself.

But these justice perverters are regularly employed by psychopathic corporations*, and by incredibly wealthy and powerful individuals.

These incredibly wealthy and powerful individuals. are the only people who benefit from – and who stand above – the compartmentalised, pyramidal, hierarchical, structure which envelopes the rest of us.

very phallic

Their greatest asset is the ‘amoral genius’, and if a genius isn’t born amoral; they are ‘only human’, and are therefore corruptible, and probably blackmailable.

How come?

So how did we come to this sorry state of affairs?

A very brief and uneducated run down of English Law is required, I think.

It’s all down to hierarchies again.

In pre-Norman England, the law was administered by local courts, largely by custom. There was no centrally controlled system. William the Bastard (a.k.a. William the Conqueror) claimed the English throne in 1066 and changed all that.

Why is 1066 the best known date in history?

Royal Courts emerged from the King’s Council, and in order for the law to be standardised across the land, judges were appointed by the King.

These judges went to the local courts, to find the ‘best’ local laws, and then these were applied across the country. These local laws had developed over hundreds of years and were based on precedent. Precedent is a principle or rule, which has been established in a previous legal case.

This evolved into what became known as ‘Common Law’, and this, in turn, became the basis for legal systems across the British Commonwealth.

This system evolved and The House of Lords became the court of final appeal in the U.K. These appeals are dealt with by 12 judges.

Meanwhile, back at the clubhouse.

So the highest Law in the land is a club of 12 judges, who are members of a bigger club (the House of Lords). These Lords are either hereditary peers, with inherited wealth, land, and power; or they have been of particular service to the Queen or Prime Minister – usually acquiring wealth, land and power in that service. There are a further 28 Peers, and these are the Bishops in the Church of England.

Equal rights and justice?

What chance does a common man have against such an institution, with the super-rich so completely reliant on wealth and privilege, and absolutely dependent on maintaining the status quo?

For those immersed in the Law, it’s all an intellectual game of one-upmanship. They are seldom attached to the outcomes. However, a trip to court for the average person, is a massive ordeal, usually with life-changing consequences. But to a lawyer, it’s just another day at the office.

*Corporation by Joel Balkan?

Bankers and other rhymes

Bankers

If I lent you a tenner I would not expect you to pay me back £ 10.02 next week (the 2p being interest); you’d give me a tenner and I’d be happy just to have been repaid.

Normal people don’t add interest to debt.

Even your local drug dealer doesn’t charge interest for a ‘lay on’.

 

But if you got a loan from the bank to buy your drugs, you’d most certainly be charged interest. So who’s the worst?

 

Why are banks so unscrupulous? They lend any amount of money for any purpose, to any business, no matter what the trade… and then they launder the profits. It’s been happening for years. Look at the history of the H.S.B.C. bank

War

One of the most rewarding ventures for a bank, when they’re not laundering drug money, is warfare. The debt is secured against the whole population of a nation, and there are always at least two sides to any conflict. Ideally, the bank will lend money to both parties.

Just the faintest whiff of war has governments borrowing billions to purchase the latest instruments of death, and destruction.

 

We would not have had a European war for hundreds of years without bankers to bankroll at least one of the armies. Wars certainly could not have lasted very long, without kings and governments and banks, contriving to put nations into massive debt, almost in perpetuity.

If the debt for one conflict is ever paid off, it’s very easy to start another. Maybe even with a fraudulent excuse. As long as the highest office in the land is prepared to lie through his magnificent teeth, then your government controlled media will support it as justifiable.

Lies

 

Usury ( lending money, with interest ) was once both a sin and a crime, in the Christian world; now it’s standard business practice. An individual’s worth is based on their credit rating. We are encouraged into debt from an early age, and it is woven into adverts as a means of achieving our dreams.

Dream car, dream holiday, dream on.

It’s presented as being a great thing; buy a new car for 300 quid a month, get a credit card, and buy anything you want.

Never do these moneylenders tell us about the downside of debt. When you can’t afford the payments – or even the interest on the payments. Repossession, marriage break-up, suicide, stress, sleepless nights, homelessness, and countless other possible consequences.

Debt should be treated like smoking. Banks should all have giant health warnings on them. The same as they have for cigarette packets – only with pictures of people crying, or divorcing, or even about to kill themselves.

Maybe banks shouldn’t be allowed to advertise, and their logos could be replaced with plain text. No branding, just a public health warning.

‘BANKING CAN SERIOUSLY DAMAGE YOUR HEALTH’

Debt can damage your health

The difference between debt and smoking, is that most people who smoke enjoy it; whereas no-one enjoys being in debt.

At least be honest. Debt can really fuck your life up, if you can’t afford it.

 

 Contract killer

Kids have contract phones before they even understand what a contract is.
Then, at 18, when they can be held legally responsible for debt, many young people are encouraged to gain a Government approved education/opinion –  by borrowing thousands of pounds, to pay for University tuition fees.

Pathological

Our acceptance as a species of the economic strategies – of human debt-slavery, biosphere plunder, and earth rape – is pathological;

A mind-shift of the majority of the population is essential, if human life is to survive on this amazing planet. The unquestioned functioning of debt in most peoples lives is… well, I don’t know what to say.

It allows us to obtain things that we cannot afford, and often things that we don’t even need.

We are consuming tomorrow.

How much of the stuff that we have in life is just self-indulgence?

I’m certainly not advocating abstaining from pleasure. There’s no reason we can’t all live fairly comfortably  – but we have to be able to say, ‘no more’ when we have enough. This is true for so many of our vices as a species.

Why?

The vast majority of national debt is owed to banks and bankers. What are they going to do if all the people in all the countries agreed to default? The only ones who lose out are people who own the banks, so fuck them, they’ve been fucking us all for long enough.

I do realise this solution to world poverty, probably needs a bit more thought, but I enjoyed the idea of us all refusing to cooperate with the banks anymore.

Survival of the filthiest

Darwinism.

Call me cynical, but is human life really about ‘survival of the fittest’?

Look at the Queen, for example. I could beat her in a fight, easily. Even when she was young and fit, I’d still have beaten the bitch in a punch-up, or a race, or climbing a tree, or hunting for food … Okay, maybe not hunting for food. Not if it needed killing. I’ll give her that – she has had way more experience with guns, and has certainly slaughtered many more living things than I ever will. As for her husband Prince Philip, he is estimated to have shot over 30,000 pheasant. He has also killed deer, rabbit, hare, wild duck, snipe, woodcock, teal, pigeon and partridge in the U.K alone.

 

I suppose it’s part of the breeding programme with Royalty. They have to be good at killing, and they are. Whether it’s grouse or deer, pheasant or fish, the young royals are all tutored in the art of death from an early age. Let’s face it, many of the Queen’s ancestors murdered their own parents or siblings – that was how you became King or Queen back in the day. And, after ascending the throne, they married and interbred with their own close relatives (no I don’t mean lizards). Thus preserving the most psychopathic and incestuous of their shared genes. In fact, it’s more like ‘survival of the filthiest’ than ‘survival of the fittest’.

Do you think if all our ancestors had behaved like this we’d have developed speech, technology, or very much at all? We became human beings by communicating and cooperating. Passing on our knowledge to those around us and caring for each other.

 

Are our Rulers cleverer than us? I doubt it. I’ve never heard of a Royal win even a pub quiz, let alone Mastermind or Countdown. I don’t recall any theorem or equation written by a Royal (or a fucking Rothschild for that matter). Although I don’t suppose people like that would share their secret formula, and I guess that’s part of the problem.

I have a mathematical formula for you ;

1 R = 1 C (where R is a Royal; and C is a commoner )

Evolution  of the state

 

Obviously, Royalty did not self-generate: I suppose it evolved along with other abnormalities – like priests and generals, lawyers and bankers. Presumably beginning in the early cities, where the need for the division of labour became necessary. There were those who took advantage of certain situations and particular skills they may have had, and abused positions of power. They created the Institutions of State, which became part of a self-supporting hierarchy. Each unit of this hierarchy communicating & cooperating (just like humans), joining up with and reinforcing other units, creating more powerful super units and so on. But these Institutions have only cooperated within the hierarchical structure itself, and have always excluded human beings from that structure.

They are totally dehumanised.

People become job titles, skills became jobs – you get the picture.
The problem seems to be that we’ve created a system which is much fitter for survival than we are, and it’s destroying us :
It was born generations before history was invented,
It will continue, forever if we let it.
It’s bigger than us,
It’s smarter than us,
It’s even spying on us,
It’s now got A.I. and quantum supercomputers,
fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck. Fuck!
What are we going to do?

I’ll have to get back to you on that.

God knows

Religion

Call me cynical, but Religion is the work of the devil, not God. Spirituality, mysticism, appreciation of the Divine or other forms of personal belief, are perfectly laudable in the privacy of your own home; but not in public. Please!

Religion should be like sex: for consenting adults in private. With no one being harmed, exploited, or coerced. And for fuck’s sake – never do it with priests or children.

Twisted

Don’t corrupt them with obscene practices of cannibalism and vampirism; eating the body and drinking the blood of Christ. That’s an incredibly twisted way to behave when looked at objectively.

Bashing bishops

Priests and Bishops dressing in ornate robes, making people kneel in front of them, wide-mouthed as they symbolically slip something in that open, eager, orifice.

These services are at very least ancient Pagan – I would even say Satanic – rituals. The Pope, who is supposed to be God’s representative on earth, covering up all the sexual abuse committed by God’s own ministers. How long has child rape been institutionalised, even sanctioned, within the Catholic Church?

 

The Church of England appears to behave similarly to the Church of Rome. Prince Charles’ friend Bishop Peter Ball was a paedophile. Prince Charles ‘didn’t believe’ the accusations, and gave him a house to live in. The Arch Bishop of Canterbury at the time, George Carey, colluded with other high ranking church officials, to protect Bishop Ball.  Jesus would be spinning on His cross like a fucking Catherine wheel if He could see what’s been done in His name.

Blind leading the blind

Orthodox religion, blindly following the words of a book, dictated and written by HUMANS. Translated and edited, rewritten, and re-edited and re-translated; often by debauched perverts in positions of power with ungodly agendas.
Fuck off did God write it!
Why, for example, did anyone trust Moses?
Moses was deceived by a desert god/demon, known by the letters YHWH(Yahweh), who claimed to be God; but what sort of God has to resort to magic tricks to convince someone It’s the real deal.
“Oooh it’s a flaming, talking bush, it must be God.” Or “Is it a stick or is it a snake? No, it’s Yahweh showing off again”.
I have to admit that the slaughtering of the firstborn of Egypt was quite a convincing performance, but why would any so-called ‘God’ choose to behave in such a way.

Yahweh

The plagues inflicted on Egypt seem like the demonstration of a psychopathic dictator. Was there really a need for such a diabolical performance? God, the creator of all things, couldn’t come up with a more creative way of dealing with the situation. Maybe instead of mass murder, Yahweh could have done a few conjuring tricks for Pharaoh – as He did for Moses – to show how powerful He was. It would have been far less unpleasant.

”’OOh! He sawed a woman in half and stuck her back together again. Wow! He covered her with a curtain and made her disappear and reappear, I better let these bastards go, their God is really powerful.”

Then Moses told the Israelites, (and I paraphrase) ’We are God’s chosen people. He made all men, but He hates those bastards over there. In fact, if we do what He tells us to do, He will destroy our enemies, and find us a land to call our own.’

So ‘Yahweh’s ‘chosen people’ believed the narcissistic, racist, bombast, and followed him around a desert for 40 years. Then, as soon as Moses’ back was turned to receive the Ten Commandments, the people created a golden calf to worship, from all the gold they happened to have with them on their travels around the desert.
Somehow this tribal god YHWH has become intentionally confused with, and synonymous with the Deity we know as God.

YHWH is not, and never has been, the ‘one true God’ of monotheism. It is an impostor.

For Christ’s sake

Fast forward a thousand or two years this same God (or was it?) sent His only son to the same ‘chosen people’ to be tortured, demeaned and murdered for our sins. (Sins which we hadn’t committed, because we weren’t born yet). In order to obtain salvation for humanity.

The Kingdom of Heaven awaits, but only for those who believe in Jesus Christ – who ironically preached forgiveness and love. The rest of you will suffer eternal damnation, for believing in the wrong god.

 

Ironically Jesus never worships YHWH. He calls out ‘Eli’ (Matthew 27.46) or alternatively ‘Eloi’ (Mark 15.34), which is to be translated as ‘My God’ according to scholars.

God’s chosen people didn’t get fooled again. No, they weren’t going to start believing in that Jesus Christ and that ‘love thy neighbour’ shit. Our God doesn’t like the neighbours, He killed them for us.

You couldn’t make it up… oh! Hang on, somebody did make it up, and they convinced billions of people to believe it. You couldn’t make it up…

Then you mix the violent narcissism of Judaism, and the militaristic proselytising of Christianity, and lock them in an eternal war with another militant man-made monotheism, Islam (whose God is also the only one true God). Then convince them all that Jerusalem is their own personal Holy City. No fucking wonder people kill each other.

It can be insightful and comforting to incorporate the thoughts and teachings of ancient wise men/women into one’s life, but these old books are guidelines, not orders from God.

We all know right from wrong. If you need to be told how to live by an old book, which constantly contradicts itself, you really are fucked.

Pharma

Pharmaceutical Corporations,

Call me cynical, but do multinational pharmaceutical companies really exist to make you and me healthier, happier people; constantly developing wonderful remedies for all our ills?

Curing the common cold, eliminating cancer or curing eczema, asthma, or Alzheimer’s, or any of the autoimmune diseases inflicting so many people.

Happy

Apart from antibiotics, what pharmaceutical products actually cure anything?

Certainly none of the above will ever be eliminated. Yes, they can sometimes mitigate or alleviate some of the symptoms, but they never seem to cure anything – there’s no money in it.

Pills

The cash cow was always perpetual chronic illness. Take one (or ten) pills a day for the rest of your life (hopefully).

Now they make a fortune from selling vaccines, either to individuals or to governments. You can even vaccinate yourself against gullibility now.

Immune systems evolved, I believe, through an organism’s exposure to disease – it’s combatting of that disease, remembering how, and passing that information on to it’s offspring. Those with efficient immune systems were more likely to survive to pass on their genes. How can we have a strong and effective immune system if it never has to work hard?

Drink

It always pissed me off as a kid that I was told not to drink from rivers and puddles, or it would make me ill – whereas my dog could drink from streams, puddles, swamps, and even toilets, without a problem. Surely we ought to be able to drink the same water. When did we lose the ability to drink fresh water from a stream? (When we polluted it I suppose.)

These pharmaceutical corporations exist for the sole purpose of making a profit. It’s like a fucking iPhone; they want you constantly upgrading, expanding, or updating your meds.

Then, if you can afford it (or are important enough to your employer), they encourage you to go private. Because you deserve better than those N.H.S. scum.

What a way to undermine the N.H.S.

You have to go and have a checkup next, and they look for medical problems in places you didn’t know you had. Doctors gagging to get their fingers up your arse, violating your rectal dignity. I know of this – my friend told me all about it, and he was still talking about it months later.

I am aware that there are genuine medical reasons for this practice to be widespread (sorry about the pun).

If you are one of those people whose life was saved by a timely anal probing, then I am truly pleased that you allowed it – I’m certainly not saying I’m right all the time.

Personally, if I feel okay, I won’t go to the doctor? Let sleeping bugs lie.

According to Bruce Lipton in his book ‘The Biology of Belief’ he explains how epigenetics influences our health. (Click here for further reading).

So much of your health depends on how well you perceive yourself to be. If you are told you are ill, and you believe that prognosis, you will become ill.

Subconscious

Our subconscious has a massive effect on our wellbeing – it can kill or it can cure. So much of our health is about belief, from placebos to evil eyes; our beliefs become our experiences.

I know what I’m saying goes against much medical advice, and if you think you may be ill, then you should definitely get yourself checked out by a professional.

But there is a massive industry out there that really needs you to be unwell. They only profit from the sick.

There are so many cancer charities now, and an awful lot of well-paid people working in the Cancer Industry – in both the medical field and for the charities themselves- executives, directors, researchers, fundraisers etc.

Snake oil

Call me cynical, but why are there more and more people, each and every year, developing that wicked disease? It seems like for every cancer they put into remission, they recommission a new one.

A controversial opinion I am aware but;

“Everyone should know that most cancer research is largely a fraud.” (Dr. Linus Pauling 1986, Nobel Laureate)

‘We have lost the war on cancer. At the beginning of the last century, one person in twenty would get cancer. In the 1940s it was one out of every sixteen people. In the 1970s it was one person out of ten. Today one person out of three gets cancer in the course of their life.
The cancer industry is probably the most prosperous business in the United States. In 2014, there was an estimated 1,665,540 new cancer cases diagnosed and 585,720 cancer deaths in the US. $6 billion of tax-payer funds are cycled through various federal agencies for cancer research, such as the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The NCI states that the medical costs of cancer care are $125 billion, with a projected 39 percent increase to $173 billion by 2020.
The simple fact is that the cancer industry employs too many people and produces too much income to allow a cure to be found. All of the current research on cancer drugs is based on the premise that the cancer market will grow, not shrink.’

Causes

Part of the problem appears to be that your G.P. only ever treats effects – seldom does he/she look for causes. They address the symptoms, nothing more. It’s not the G.P.’s fault; they are only practising what they’ve been taught. They’re under tremendous pressure from Big Pharma and the Government.

I suspect that the root cause of all disease is known to those at the top of the medical tree. But, if it ever became common knowledge that most illness is the body’s response to toxins, stress, diet, and lack of exercise, we might decide to change the way we live.

Pollution in air and water, bad diet, pesticide-infested food, unhealthy electromagnetic frequencies, and damage to our mental health, are some of the more harmful agencies assaulting our immune system on a daily basis.

‘Here, try this and if it doesn’t work, come back and see me in a week.’ Familiar? Certainly, in the U.K. So much useless medicine is being prescribed and consumed. How much damage is caused by inappropriately prescribed medication?

Effects

As for the pills for depression (I’m not a doctor ) but what the fuck. Do they really ‘cure’ anything? I don’t think so. They are a revenue stream.

In fact, they may cause more harm than good according to North Wales Department of Psychological Medicine, Prozac can make even healthy people suicidal.

https://www.theguardian.com/science/2000/may/22/drugs.uknews)

This is just the tip of the iceberg, that our Titanic mental health industry is heading towards.

Suck on that

Judging by the number of pills prescribed, and the number of people with mental health issues, life has never been so difficult. What did people do in the past, before happy pills and suicide? How did your great-grandparents cope?

Yeah, they probably drank heavily, smoked heavily, and took laudanum.

Apart from the trauma based and genetic mental health issues that people have to overcome, I feel that many of our psychological problems derive from the state of cognitive dissonance – into which we have been placed – by the absurd contradictions of life. The paradoxes we have to live with are overwhelming, and they damage our mental wellbeing.

Madness

Sometimes, we take drink or drugs, or we gamble – or exhibit other self- destructive behaviours, as a response to the ‘madness’ of it all. You can’t make the shit go away by taking pills or drinking too much. The best you can do is temporarily numb the pain.

Life can be very hard, and many of us experience great difficulties in our life. Sadness and misery are real –  but we all need love, understanding and patience, and also time to absorb our lessons – not mind-numbing drugs. They’re just trying to turn you into pharma-zombie-junkies; but that’s okay because you get your drugs from a professional, who’s been to university and is, therefore, ‘qualified’.

You never know, it might help!

Disclaimer

I noticed that many of my observations begin with the statement, ‘call me cynical, but…’ So, call me Cynical But.

I started this blog as a dark and light-hearted response to some of the idiosyncrasies and absurdities of the modern world.

Looking at some of the ridiculous acceptances of modern life, through my splintered, shattered, shit spattered, specs – my morose-coloured glasses. At subjects that we take for granted, and whose functioning we accept without question. From science to religion, and law to love.

The views expressed in these blogs are my own personal rage against the machine. They do not necessarily represent my real views of anything – just sometimes, as my daughter would say, ‘you’ve got to call bullshit’. Much of my ranting is just the consequence of being lied to by ‘The Establishment’ for so long.

I’ll be trying to understand how we have been placed in the almost paralysing state of cognitive dissonance by the crazy paradoxes of life, and the many discordant and contradictory values that we have been encouraged to embrace.

We know that much of what is happening globally, is damaging to us – both collectively and individually – yet we continue to behave in a self-destructive way; and yes, it makes us feel like shit, but hey! What can you do?

Examples would be things like being concerned about climate change while driving an unnecessarily large car or accelerating too hard, or taking far off foreign holidays. 

We always have good reasons for being a hypocrite, but that’s what we are. Day after day we make countless feeble excuses to ourselves, for our aberrant behaviour, as our shame grows gradually, incrementally. So slowly, in fact, that we’re hardly aware of its debilitating effects.

We feel shame at the sight of homelessness, and bewilderment at the plight of refugees. How can we allow it? How can we stop it ? But there’s nothing we can do. We know our ’50p for a cup of tea’ doesn’t change a thing, and nor does your £10 a month direct debit.

We know we should love ourselves, but do we really feel that lovable?

When nothing appears to be true, you stop believing anything.

I don’t know what to believe. We seem to be kept in a state of media-induced, constantly unresolved confusion. There is no alternative to ‘Fake News’ – there is no ‘True News’. Anyone who produces ‘news’ has an agenda. It just depends whether you agree with it or not, that makes it true or otherwise. I just know that if I’m told ‘it’s for your own good’, it probably isn’t.

Deception is all about us, in both the human world and the natural world. Things are seldom as they appear.

We only perceive splinters of reality; tiny, whirling, sparkling, flashing, moments of eternity. Everything in continual motion, energy moving in all directions, simultaneously – each one of us having their own subjective perspective experience of this fragmented explosion of phenomena.

Sorry, I think I just had a mushroom flashback.

Why lie?

As a young person, I was perhaps a bit naive and maybe a bit lazy; it was easier to believe people than not. Why would my parents, or teachers, or Government-  or anyone else, for that matter – lie to me? My parents and teachers passed on to me what they believed to be correct, they couldn’t have known any better than we do, as to what the fuck’s really going on, in what we perceive to be the world.

Governments deliberately lie though; ( e.g. the invasion of Iraq ) but does that mean all politicians are liars, or even intrinsically dishonest? I can’t answer that. I do believe that at least some politicians enter politics with good intentions and wish to serve their country, and that many were once decent people. But power corrupts, and look what you end up with.

I suppose, when the penny dropped, with a plop, in a puddle of piss, I became disgruntled and very cynical. ’Fool me twice’ as George Bush said. (Although you could probably fool that daft bastard again and again and again).

Idiot!

Not even an idiot can argue that we’re not completely dependent upon the wellbeing of the earth. If the earth dies, we die.

Yet humanity, particularly in the West, lives as if all are in a race to destroy the biosphere as quickly as possible. Where’s the fucking sense in that?

Insane!

Are we a species that has gone completely insane?
It’s about a lot more than so-called ‘climate change’ or ‘global warming’.
The earth is under attack from mining and mineral extraction, including fracking and oil wells. There’s depletion and pollution of groundwater; not to mention landfill leakage, and the products of the civilian and military nuclear industries.

Then there’s poisoning and depleting the soil, destruction of plant and animal life, repurposing the land, and spraying it with badly researched chemicals.

The air is unbreathable in many cities…

You what! Unbreathable air. It’s a fucking oxymoron. It’s not air if you can’t breathe it.

Tap water, if not undrinkable, tastes horrible, contains recycled urine, and is loaded with obnoxious chemicals.

The sea is full of plastic and other pollutants, pouring in from toxic rivers and sewers, and countless ships. A large vessel can use up to 300 metric tonnes of fuel per day.

It’s all for our benefit, though: it’s to improve the quality of our lives.

Empty

Now I look at the world through my shit stained spectacles. The glass is not even ‘half empty’, because there’s no such thing as ‘half empty’. Empty is empty, like my reserve tank of hope.

The definition of empty:

 Having nothing inside or on the surface; holding or containing
nothing: an empty bag; an empty lot. (an empty glass*)

You can’t have half of something that’s not there – half of nothing – there is just nothing, and nothing doesn’t exist.

Love all the people

I digress. Even though much of what I write may be taken as hateful and vile, I say it all with love in my heart and I wish no-one any harm in any way. I just try to point out some of the most absurd and destructive ironies perpetrated in the world today.

Those are some of the reasons to call me Cynical But.
