Mayday, Mayday

 After the revolution we will obviously celebrate May Day properly. A celebration for the proletariat. There will also be anthems. Music has to be a key part of the new republic. The obvious anthem is L'Internationale:

  

But I think I can suggest a better one. There's a radical song from the sixties that was way ahead of its time and sung by the peoples' performer and heartthrob to many a mother and granny, Matt Monro - We`re Gonna Change The World. Give it a listen, it'll change your world.

English Fuckism

The arrogance and brutal cruelty of the English ruling classes along with the stupidity of the English working classes make for a very dysfunctional, xenophobic and inward looking country.

English history is littered with cruelty to its people and even worse to those in other countries. All empires are evil and the British Empire* was no exception, reeking havoc wherever it went. Unfortunately the way that our history is taught and reported is always with a pro establishment stance. They feed just enough patriotic, gold-plated horse shit to the plebs to keep them feeling great about themselves, whilst behind their backs they are robbing them blind and shitting on them from a great height.

England is shit and it mostly always has been shit and it wont change until the sheeple wake up. Meanwhile the elite practice what can only be regarded as English Fuckism, a unique form of fascism peculiar to these lands. A philosophy which basically offers a great big fuck you to anyone in the world that isn't part of the English ruling classes.



As George Orwell said, "He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.". This has enabled the ruling classes to feed the people with enough propaganda so that, again as George puts it, "The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them." Mission accomplished.

Until we eradicate the old order and their English Fuckism we will never be able to take back control or level up. We will just continue down the path of serfdom enabled by divide and conquer bigotry.   



*I realise that I've flipped between British and English. It was intentional. The English ruling class controlled the empire. Any other way of looking at it is just pretence.

St George - Middle Eastern warrior

St George wouldn’t have known who the English were, basically because as such they didn’t exist. He may have vaguely heard of a distant, cold and wet land called Provincia Britannia, a godforsaken part of the Roman empire, with its barbarian natives, but that would be all.

He certainly wouldn’t have known of the ‘flag of St George’ as that was an invention by the Italians in mediaeval times.

He was born in the Middle East, most likely Turkey, was in the Roman army and is included in some Muslim texts as a prophetic figure. He has absolutely nothing to do with England, nor does his flag.

If you want to read more about him you will find this very useful.

It’s ironic that George is associated with much of what flag-shaggers would hate, but given that most of them are going to be illiterate knuckle draggers, they will never have bothered to find out. Ah, the blissful ignorance of the bigot.




I might add that I don't subscribe to the concept of saints, patron or otherwise. It's all part of the superstitious nonsense that religion is. I just like debunking the myths. There really is no such thing as the English (or British come to that). No, you shut up!

Wrong conclusions can be jumped to

Where possible I try never to explain a piece of my art. It is up to the viewer to take from it what they want to take from it. If it makes them think then that pleases me. If not, if perhaps it just reinforces their own prejudices, then so be it. You can argue or stimulate those with closed minds.

My art comes in two types. The first is where I wish to convey a message or an idea that I believe in and the other is about illustrating a thought or phrase that pops into my head in a serendipitous way that I’ve seemingly not controlled. I may not even agree with the notion I am conveying; sometimes an artist just needs to agitate. Think of it as the equivalent of giving someone a good shake.

The job of the artist should be about amusing and getting people to think. Without thinking we are lost.

Liberty starts in the mind

Black and white thinking is one of the greatest dangers to society. It’s why the UK is in the mess that it is. Unfortunately it is due to having too many lazy and ignorant people in the population. People who expect easy answers because anything too difficult or abstract proves impossible for them to digest and comprehend. But, as I’m very fond of saying, nothing is ever black and white. What’s to be done about it? I’m not totally sure. Somehow we need to educate people. And when I say educate I mean help them to be able to think critically and in abstract ways. Education is not about filling peoples’ heads with assorted ‘facts’. Education should be about setting people free. I doubt I’ll live to see an educated populace. I’m not sure it will ever happen. I’m not sure people want to be set free.
