Political Note



Harping On

Striking results from Dec 12 analysis of election voting intentions on this Yougov site. For instance:

RED = Labour .................................Blue = Tory




The relationship is amazingly linear, with the crossover at around age 40. Why are the young highly progressive but reducing from age 30 on, and why is the trend to become increasingly reactionary as we age?

And I ask myself, how come I moved in the opposite direction: after starting like everyone else as a teen - well in the 'red' - I've only got redder? That is:

I'm no communist... just a moderate socialist who believes that an intelligent society must be good for everyone. As a first priority we should all have free access to a decent lifestyle with generous subsistence, comfortable accommodation and exemplary public services and so on. Once that's secured, we should have the opportunity, should one make the effort in fair and legal ways (or get lucky somehow), to become wealthy, able to afford luxuries - big house, fabulous car, holidays etc.... and/or pursue exciting, gripping, creative activities, whether in work or leisure.

Above all, crucially, parents must have free first-rate child-care and associated services so no kid grows up deprived or neglected - to operate in a flexible common-sense manner of mutual learning and co-operation. In fact our society should be something like this: HAPPINESS

Going by the yougov survey, most people as they age move away from this and instead towards a more Fascist-oriented preference; they reject the socialst scenario.

My generation grew up during the 35-years following Attlee's introduction of socialist policies from which everyone benefited enormously, rich or poor. So up to 1985 I'd enjoyed all the great advantages: easy health care, free further education, access to a decent job of my choice, mortgage for a semi-detatched house even on an income that was so low that if I'd had kids they'd have been eligible for free school meals... then Thatcher began to dismantle it all and the rest is history.

Corbyn's Labour promised to restore much, though not all, that the Tories had removed of the fabulous Attlee policies. But, NO.... astoundingly, my generation has become overwhelmingly Fascist and proclaimed with resounding clarity their message to the next generation, which goes something like this:

"Go to hell. Why should we help you? just because we did OK, doesn't mean anyone else should. True, we were lucky, immensely lucky in fact, we had this fabulously easy 35-years of outstanding government that gave us a great start in life... indeed, a great LIFE altogether... but you, the new generation, you just want our money and we hate you for it. We might be rich, but we're selfish bastards too and will never allow you to have what we had. We need the differential so we can feel superior and in charge... maybe we'll throw a few morsels at your pathetic charities if we feel so inclined. But otherwise you can live in hovels and sweat it out in the factories and officies that pay our pensions and the dividends that keep us in luxury, provides our care... so hard cheese... And no more elections!"

And see (in the above chart) how much people care about green issues as they get older.....

So much for the 50's generation - my generation - and what a load of shitheads we are! I hope you youngsters who we envy so much for the youth we no longer have can somehow get back at us....

I propose that since anyone over 50 will have completed more than half of their lifetime, with only 15 or 20 years of working life left, then 50 (or even 45) should be where they become no longer eligibile to vote.

Political note (5.1.20)

I was intending to avoid politics for a while, it's just so crap at the moment and getting rapidly worse. It's as if the most heinous pricks are running everything these days - talk to the super-rich, especially the ones you've never heard of, and you'll find their views are almost as diabolic as their political flunkeys.

The nearest parallel that comes to mind is the Daleks: 'a fictional extraterrestrial race of mutants... drawing inspiration from the Nazis, Daleks are violent, merciless and pitiless cyborg aliens, who demand total conformity to their will and who are bent on the conquest of the universe and the extermination of what they see as inferior races' (from wikipedia) - In the case of our unelected rulers replace 'extermination' with 'exploitation'.

That's the kind of maniacs we're landed with: it's not just a jungle out there, but a jungle of bedlam, a jungle ruled by the insane.

First the US - Trump - bumps-off an Iranian big-shot and declares that he's not escalating instability in the region. Can it really be to divert media attention from the impeachment issue - by the timing, perhaps? But according to most independent commentators the US has been itching to annihilate Iran for more than a decade, probably ever since the Shah was deposed in 1979... not that the US is especially bothered about Iran these days, but regarding the middle-east, at least, Israel has been dictating Washington's policies since the 1960s.

So what's actually behind this recent attack?

This is my take: and see how contented the US sec-of-State Pompeo looked as he pronounced that the slightest retaliation by Iran would mean the US attack on 52 targets already selected. (Iran should have been ready for something like this and reacted instantly... pre-empting any counter-threats).

Most striking, though, is the similarities between Israel/US and Iran/Palestine/Lebanon (etc): they BOTH do the precise opposite of what they declare. Israel/US says it has no wish to create hostility, when creating as much devastation and murder as they think they can get away with (esp against Palestinian kids who throw stones at their oppressors), while their opponents cry-out over and again 'death-to-America' yet actually do nothing (probably because there's not a lot they can do).

Where these two opposing forces differ is Israel/US being socially advanced but with an aggressive foreign policy, while Iran/Iraq is socially primitive with a comparatively benign foreign policy.

Israel also has experience at False Flag tactics, and Pompeo - holding such notions in mind - will doubtless (with the rest of the White-House) have planned out a clear strategy before the assassination. It's my guess that they expect/hope some hot-head Iranian to independently attack (ie, something more substantial than mere pot-shots) a US asset so creating a pretext for the US to launch an all-out attack on those aforementioned targets. Otherwise, Mossad will surely oblige with the so-called False Flag.

We are led to believe from the usual 'establishment' media that politicians on all sides think like simpletons and even criticise Trump for failing to predict the scale of anti-American reaction from the public in Iran and Iraq. Unless they're concealing their true understanding of the situation, which may well be the case (they're habitually so stupid and short-sighted, one wonders what the hell any of them do understand?), they seem only to see the obvious surface of what's happening, as if they can't or don't want to look further than their noses.

And Israel's reputation for deranged ingenuity together with gratuitous brutality, has frequently demonstrated that they care nothing for individual Jews even (whether or not they support the regime) because it's they who end-up suffering most from the antisemitism Israel's crimes provoke.

I should say that some of my heroes are (or were) Jews: the late Carl Sagan, for instance, and Harold Pinter, the recently deceased Jonathan Miller, then Stephen Fry and Alexei Sayle... not forgetting the amazing 'Family Guy' team... the list goes on and on...etc., etc.

But the Jewish establishment is another issue. Michael Rosen, Alexei Sayle and others have supported Jeremy Corbyn when under attack from the Jewish establishment - which includes most media.

I think of 1930s Germany when the Nazis received huge popular support, while a significant minority of Germans looked-on horrified. So it's not Germans who should be condemned for WW2, but Nazis. Likewise with Israel... it's not Jews but supporters of Israeli Fascism that are the problem, which is mostly Jews, but includes once powerful maniacs like Blair and his billionaire Fascist supporter Murdoch... neither are Jewish, yet they support Israel - as exclusively do their countries: the UK and US - unlike the entire rest of the world, except maybe Australia (Murdoch's original base).

Ever since it was formed, Israel has been bad news, and probably (at least since South African apartheid ended) the biggest menace on the planet after the US and climate change. The US destroyed Guatemala in the 1950s, Vietnam in the 1960s, then more countries in Central and South America (where efforts continue to this day), then Iraq, Libya and now... Iran?... a pretty appalling legacy to say the least. Hence the feral jungle, as it seems to me. I just feel bloody lucky to be living away from the action.

The only solution is: stop being so open and honest, and instead learn from the oppressors, try their tactics for a change. Don't call for the dissolution of Israel - such an aim would be better unvoiced - it should be undertaken by stealth with not the remotest hint of a warning. I'm thinking now of those gruesome multi-jawed aliens in the film 'Alien' - you wouldn't warn that murderous fiend, would you? Likewise Israel, which isn't a person, so no-one needs to be harmed even; but until Israel ceases to exist as a separate entity, there'll be no peace in the region, nor probably anywhere nearby.

I've always wondered too why a diaspora such as the Jews have, has its own country - separate from the country they're born in or live in. We all know the history, very roughly at least. But why, on that basis, shouldn't any of us also have some location kept exclusively, say, for in my case 'white lower-class English people' or for former 'Vikings' (whatever your ancestors were) - a region in Norway, maybe, or France... wherever those ancestors happened to live 2000-years ago? (If there was such a place for me I'd keep well away from it, sure as hell).

But Jews have acquired over millennia a reputation for an exaggerated sense of entitlement, yet at the same time have seemed to be oblivious of any concept that non-Jews - gentiles - are equally entitled. These days, at least, when this arbitrarily self-adopted sense of entitlement is challenged, they accuse the challenger of antisemitism.

Having met very few Jews, I can only go by what others have said or written on the subject, plus what's currently in the 'air', so to speak, or on the 'air-waves'. From my own experience there's no shortage of gentiles with that same sense of entitlement, though by far most don't have it. But Jews, famously, have always disproportionately acquired great wealth and manoeuvred themselves into positions of power and authority. We're all familiar with the acquisitive expression on the face of the stereotypical Jew.

It used to be Freemasons who most held this kind of a grip on powerful positions in society, and in Italy the Mafia fostered the same kind of superiority-complex in their clan.

What's most astonishing, though - and indicates the insidious nature of the problem, as doubtless contrived by the Jewish establishment - is how everyone currently is so petrified of confronting this monstrous con... the most palpable and treacherous 'elephant-in-the-room' ever, that no-one dares to challenge as they have the Freemasons and Mafia.

It's as if Israel and their supporters are blackmailing everyone who opposes them, or who sympathises with their enemies, with threats of accusations of antisemitism - implying they're Nazis and approve of Hitler's persecution of the Jews (among others). This is how they disposed of Corbyn - who all his life took the side of the underdog, appropriate here the Palestinians in their perennial struggle under the Israeli iron-heel.

It's about time Jews who back Israel and anyone else who supports them were called-out for the charlatans they are. There is a significant minority of Jews who condemn Israel, as there were Germans in the 1930s who condemned the Nazis. Why don't more of them they speak-out.... are they under greater threat, maybe from Mossad, than anyone else? I guess so... there's no other explanation I can think of.

But now we'll see how Israeli Fascists are going to do to Iran what they did to Iraq via their Washington toadies who, as I say, are just itching to fire those guns and drop those bombs and engage whatever else of their vast military arsenal.

I think of Jack in 'Lord of the Flies' - but this time there's no 'civilised' adult to stop the slaughter, alas. Will the EU attempt to intervene, I wonder?
