The government we deserve

Whilst your humble Devil has never been shy of excoriating the government, I am one of the few bloggers that has consistently pointed out that, actually, the electorate are a bunch of fascist bastards too.
It's hard to imagine that this is the same public which proudly bosts of winning two world wars, isn't it? Limp, effete, and cowering like timid rabbits at a small cloud of water particles which float for a second before disappearing into history.
As V said, "if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror."

Think about it. Understand it.

And change how you think and behave.

Stop trying to control people because you have been credulously sucked into the belief in any one of the fantasmagorical hobgoblins that the government and media have created in order to keep you stupid, scared and compliant.

In other words, stop being a cunt. Yes, you. Stop it.

Dear Mr Kitchen, I share your view on this.

We reap what we sow, especially in my neck of the woods.

The vast majority of political positions in South Wales have been owned by Labour for ever.

Yet after generations of local power and 13 years of unfettered Parlaimentary power the area still suffers unemployment, illiterecy, ill health higher than the national average.

In Devilspeak its a fucking shithole.

I believe the two issues are related.

I keep telling them that by tribal voting like this they are predictable and thus taken for granted. They are disenfranchising themselves.

They end up with people like Hain, Bryant and Clwyd etc parachuted in who then ignore their constituents to follow their own or their masters agenda.

Sad it is.

The public may be stupid but not too stupid to realise that there is unlikely to be any meaningful alternative to the present crew of toffs or PPE graduates.

I have asked many times which country represents a viable alternative, in other words once you get past the fancy rhetoric which country has devised a political system that gives the best quality of life to ordinary peope.

Well, which one is it .......... ?

Daniel Thomas said...

So what are you saying, that there's no alternative to LibLabCon so bend over and take it for ever?

The people have power but don't know how to wield it.

From experience of living in many countries I offer the USA, Canada, Turkey for starters.

Since WW2 has there been a more belligerent and murderous nation than the good old US-of-A ?

From the Korean War in 1950 to the 2003 Iraq invasion, the US has deployed more troops and intervened in more countries with more frequency than any other liberal democracy.

You might prefer a system run on corporate greed but how is that any better than what we have to put up with?

Remember this TIMES headline?

Daniel T Thomas said...

Maybe under certain circumstances I could accept belligerent.

With whats gone on in the world since WW2 murderous is a bit OTT and demonstrates an irrational dislike of the USA which is usually based on envy of their prosperity.

The Korean war was UN sponsored in response to Chinese expansion into the Korean Peninsula.

The'03 invasion of Iraq was a US/UK led coalition.

Between the two I'm not recalling any murderous gung ho excursions into foreign territory.

Don't let the truth get in the way of a bit of Yank bashing its good for the socialist soul.

I hear the term American 'corporate greed' everywhere, its the latest soundbite deployed by socialist anti American leftists.

A system can only be judged by its its outcomes.

In my experience the American system of individual liberty and responsibility has produced a more properous population than the socialist systems whereby if everyone can't be equally prosperous then everyone must be equally poor. Except the political elite of course.

'With whats gone on in the world since WW2 murderous is a bit OTT and demonstrates an irrational dislike of the USA which is usually based on envy of their prosperity' - no, it is based on collective blindness when comes to the way the US approach international conflict, especially their reliance on gung ho propaganda and military hardware.

Do you think this is a price worth paying so that Bush and his mates can acquire yet more wealth despite the wide ranging negative consequences.

Remember this banned TED talk about myths associated with wealth creation

The end of the american dream?

Hmm, about that.

And why Canada - hardly a bastion of libertarianism?

At the 2011 election its 23 candidates won a total of just 6,017 votes (averaging 262 each).

Now that's the sort of figure the Monster Raving Loony party would be disappointed with - so what's so special about Cannuk-central?

I do not expect anybody to be able to highlight a functioning political party that was emblematic of the sort of aspirations expressed here - needles to say, I wasn't disappointed.

'best quality of life for ordinary people' was the question. I chose those countries because I've ran businesses in all three, living amongst local working class employees. Myself and my employees lived happy, free and prosperous lives.

I am not suggesting they are perfect, of course they are not, but you asked so I told you.

I am currently over halfway through a 6 month sabbatical in working class mid America. I am not seeing the bloodsoaked, murderous regime or people refered to.

I am reading about the Arab Ba'ath socialist regime in Syria indulging in a little bloodletting. Now thats what I call murderous.

How about looking to Finland for how it should be done? People there work 3 days a week and have 4 days off. Sure they are 12 hour days but still. Each job is shared by two people putting in 3 days each.
