Notes for a Poem.

https://theconquestofdough.weebly.com/the-conquest-of-dough.html

 

The US Army Asked Twitter How Service Has Impacted People. The Answers Were Gut-Wrenching.

After posting a video of a young recruit talking to the camera about how service allows him to better himself “as a man and a warrior”, the US Army tweeted, “How has serving impacted you?”

 

Rudyard Kipling: Poems Summary

Gunga Din” is told from the perspective of a soldier who is grateful to the Indian water-carrier who saves his life but is then killed right afterward.

“If-” is a father’s message to his son on how to be a man – one must control his actions and feelings, trust oneself but allow for doubt, refuse to lie, take risks but do not brag, and allow triumph and despair to shape and mold oneself.

“The Ballad of East and West”, 1889, depicts an encounter between a British soldier, the Colonel’s son, and the powerful Kamal, an Eastern chieftain. While Kamal initially displays his military might by stealing the Colonel’s horse, he then reveals his tremendous humility and nobility by allowing the Colonel’s son to have the animal back. The men pledge their loyalty to one another and acknowledge each other’s military prowess and excellent character.

“Boots” presents a picture of many thousands of soldiers marching for hours upon hours. The repetitive, singsong nature of the poem establishes a mood of dull, senseless redundancy.

Danny Deever” features a conversation between a young soldier and his sergeant. The young soldier asks why the bugles are blowing and everyone is gathered; the sergeant replies that Danny Deever will be hung this morning for shooting a comrade. The young soldier remembers that he and Danny used to drink beer together, and the sergeant responds by saying Deever will now drink alone. Danny is hung and the sergeant says his soul has passed over them.

Fuzzy-Wuzzy” expresses admiration for a Beja warrior who fought the British in the Sudan in the Mathdist war. Of all the Eastern fighters the solder had faced, Fuzzy-Wuzzy was the most remarkable, especially as he and his companions were able to break the British square in a significant battle. The soldier considers him a poor heathen but admires his fighting skills.

“Gentlemen-Rankers” articulates the difficulties the British soldiers faced. The speaker says it is no wonder that they drink themselves to sleep or drug themselves to stave off the pain; they lack hope or love or truth. They get to know the worst at way too young an age. They are like lambs that have gone astray.

“Mandalay” features a British soldier reminiscing about his pleasurable times in Mandalay. He remembers a Burmese girl who was sweet and played the banjo. He contrasts the beauty and warmth of Mandalay with the cold drizzle of London.

“The Mother-Lodge” features Kipling waxing nostalgic for his Masonic mother lodge, which featured a colorful cast of characters. He is no longer there but hopes he can see them all again.

“My Boy Jack“, from 1914-1918, is told from the perspective of a mourning parent, asking for news of their son who is away at war. An answering voice tells the questioner that there is no news at this time, and that he or she should be proud of the son they bore who has sacrificed himself to the wind and the tide.

“Recessional”, 1897, composed to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee, warns its readers against pride and arrogance in their imperial ambitions, and counsels them to heed God’s immense and immitigable power. They should be careful not to boast or take too much stock in their conquests and monuments because all will fade to ash and dust.

The Thousandth Man” is a paean to male friendship and masculinity. The speaker says only one in a thousand men will be closer than a brother and support you in everything you do. No matter what the other nine hundred and ninety nine men do, this one is immeasurably valuable.

“Tommy” is told from the perspective of a young British soldier; these soldiers were given the nickname of “Tommy” or “Tommy Atkins“. This young soldier expresses derision for the British people who treat him scornfully when there is no war, but clamor for his services and treat him well once their nation is threatened.

“Ulster”, 1912, is about the signing of the Ulster Covenant. The document was signed by the men and women of Ulster, Ireland, who were protesting British Home Rule in Dublin. In the poem the speaker details their sacrifices and the persecution they have suffered; he wonders why they are thusly attacked when they have only asked to reap what they have sown. The speaker says that they refuse to fall alone, even if England drives them out.

“When Earth’s Last Picture is Painted”, from 1892, depicts the end of men on earth, and the satisfaction they feel once they are called home to God. In Heaven they will have a vaster canvas and will work forever without tiring. God will praise them as they are finally able to paint things for what they really are.

“The White Man’s Burden”, 1899, is addressed to the United States and is ostensibly about that country’s desire to take over the Philippines. The poem tells the white man to take up his burden by going into the lands where their dark and sullen peoples reside, and to civilize them. It also admonishes the white men to beware of their pride and to understand that their quest can be beset by obstacles like sloth and folly. They should plow through their weariness and ignore undeserved praise to attain the wisdom of experience.

The King‘s Pilgrimage”, 1922, depicts King George V’s visits to war memorials and cemeteries in France after WWI.

“Edgehill Fight” depicts the Royalists and the Parliamentarians facing each other on the battlefield in 1642 in the English Civil Wars. The men are brothers and comrades and have much in common, but this fight will prove bitterer than death since they must clash.

“The Last of the Light Brigade” tells of the twenty living veterans of that famous charge; they are suffering poverty and starvation and indignity at the hands of the nation who boasts of their achievements. They approach Tennyson, the famed poet who wrote “The Charge of the Light Brigade” and ask him to add a postscript to his poem of their heroics. Incensed by the cruel way they have been treated, Tennyson writes a new verse and shames the English people.

“The Black Man’s Burden”: A Response to Kipling

In February 1899, British novelist and poet Rudyard Kipling wrote a poem entitled “The White Man’s Burden: The United States and The Philippine Islands.” In this poem, Kipling urged the U.S. to take up the “burden” of empire, as had Britain and other European nations. Theodore Roosevelt, soon to become vice-president and then president, described it as “rather poor poetry, but good sense from the expansion point of view.” Not everyone was as favorably impressed as Roosevelt. African Americans, among many others, objected to the notion of the “white man’s burden.” Among the dozens of replies to Kipling’s poem was “The Black Man’s Burden,” written by African-American clergyman and editor H. T. Johnson and published in April 1899. A “Black Man’s Burden Association” was even organized with the goal of demonstrating that mistreatment of brown people in the Philippines was an extension of the mistreatment of black Americans at home.


Pile on the Black Man’s Burden.

‘Tis nearest at your door;

Why heed long bleeding Cuba,

or dark Hawaii’s shore?

Hail ye your fearless armies,

Which menace feeble folks

Who fight with clubs and arrows

and brook your rifle’s smoke.

Pile on the Black Man’s Burden

His wail with laughter drown

You’ve sealed the Red Man’s problem,

And will take up the Brown,

In vain ye seek to end it,

With bullets, blood or death

Better by far defend it

With honor’s holy breath.

ROMEO SPY


 


John Alexander Symonds

“I’d say: ‘join the KGB and see the world’ – first class. I went to all over the world on these jobs and I had a marvellous time. I stayed in the best hotels, I visited all the best beaches, I’ve had access to beautiful women, unlimited food, champagne, caviar whatever you like and I had a wonderful time. That was my KGB experience. I don’t regret a minute of it …”

Beginner’s Luck
Back to Part 8

Slunchen Bryag, on the Black Sea, Bulgaria 1973

Even before lunch Nina and I were losing our inhibitions, pretending to rip each other’s clothes off, but after all the brandy and champagne we were both champing for whatever action might happen later in the day. We already knew what that would be, but a rite of seduction still had to be performed, to elevate our encounter above animal lust to the heights of romantic passion.

It had all happened as if we were starring in a steaming hot movie. And maybe we were starring in a movie. After all, if my KGB handler had gone to the trouble of laying on the flowers, booze and Nun’s Bosoms, they might have installed hidden cameras as well. If so, then anyone watching this encounter may have concluded that I was sex-starved. My first burst of love-making was a torrent of ejaculation which must have both astonished Nina and disappointed her. But any voyeurs may also have rated me virile, for I came back half a dozen times.

Such enthusiasm on my part was entirely down to Nina, though I’m far from sure I satisfied her. If I had performed more skilfully the first time, I might have given her more pleasure than I did by repeatedly returning to the scene of the crime thereafter. But if we really were being observed, and my repeated revivals were winning me ever higher marks from my KGB umpires, it was all down to Nina. She made me look good. She was such an accomplished lover, she would have made anyone look good. If I now appeared to be Romeo, or even a Super Romeo, it was she who had been the leader, the initiator of every action. For me this was an exceptional experience, this was the Fuck of the Century. Yes, it was thoroughly normal straight healthy sex with a normal straight healthy woman, but nothing I did later throughout my Romeo career ever quite matched that first time.

Sure, in the service of the Kremlin, I would later enjoy far more extraordinary sex with even more beautiful women, I would have scores of bizarre encounters in the weirdest places with girls who could have graced the catwalks of Milan and the covers of magazines, but at that point in my life Nina took the biscuit – or rather the Nun’s Bosoms – for novelty, initiation and enthusiasm.

And so that first night, whether the cameras were turning or not, we rested every so often and then made love again. We behaved quite straight. After all, we were just getting to know each other. Stuffing each other not just with each other but with all those chocolates, that champagne and that wine the Hungarians call Bull’s Blood. I had never tasted it before and I told Nina I greatly enjoyed it. How apt, she murmured, patting me on the head and calling me ‘El Toro’, perhaps by way of commenting on the way I had performed, not on this occasion in a china shop but in her fine porcelain body.

Mitrokhin Archive

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to navigationJump to search

The KGB sword and shield emblem appears on the covers of the six published books by Vasili Mitrokhin andChristopher Andrew

The Mitrokhin Archive is a collection of handwritten notes made secretly by KGB archivist Vasili Mitrokhin during his thirty years as a KGB archivist in the foreign intelligence service and the First Chief Directorate. When he defected to the United Kingdom in 1992 he brought the archive with him.

The official historian of MI5Christopher Andrew,[1] wrote two books, The Sword and the Shield (1999) and The World Was Going Our Way: The KGB and the Battle for the Third World (2005), based on material in the archives. The books purport to provide details about many of the Soviet Union‘s clandestine intelligence operations around the world.

In July 2014, the Churchill Archives Centre at Churchill College released Mitrokhin’s edited Russian-language notes for public research; the archives are the largest openly available KGB data trove.[2] The original handwritten notes by Vasili Mitrokhin are still classified.[3]

Dear Professor Andrew,

You have taken your place amongst historians as a respected academic, but this is a thin disguise for your true vocation, as the Cambridge Parrot. You have a parrot’s loquacity, and you love to repeat the words of your masters; in reality you are merely a pet – a mouthpiece for MI5 and MI6. Your party trick may be to mimic some well rehearsed phrases, but you are also quite happy to repeat unproven sources as evidence, and even material from newspapers as

In January 2007 the Portuguese journalist Frederico Duarte Carvalho published an article about my case in the Lisbon magazine Focus, and an English language translation of this piece has been published on Cryptome:

http://cryptome.org/mi5-kgb-pt/mi5-kgb-pt.htm

It is clear that the Portuguese aspects of the evidence against me were some sort of imaginative creation of MI5.

John Symonds, Codename SKOT, The Romeo Spy, 1973

John Alexander Symonds (born July 13, 1935) is a British former Metropolitan police officer and KGB agent. He was born in the Soke of Peterborough, and served in the Royal Artillery from 1953-56. He joined the Metropolitan Police in 1956, becoming a Detective Sergeant at New Scotland Yard, until 1972 when he fled the UK while facing corruption charges.[1]

Between 1972-80 he was a KGB agent employed as a “Romeo spy” with the codename SKOT. The role he was allocated by his Soviet masters was the seduction of women working in Western embassies with the aim of obtaining secrets.[2]

In the 1980s Symonds had revealed himself as a spy to the police and security services, and appeared on the front page of the Daily Express (1985) and in the News on Sunday (1987) but was dismissed as “a fantasist”.[1] It was only with the defection of Major Vasili Mitrokhin in 1992, and the subsequent publication of the Mitrokhin Archive in 1999, where Symonds was named as a spy for the Soviet Union, that his claim gained credence.

Controversy[edit]

In February 2003, Andrew accepted the post of official historian for the Security Service MI5, being mandated to write an official history of the service due for their centennial in 2009. This appointment – which entailed Andrew’s enrollment into the Security Service – drew criticism from some historians and commentators. In general, these criticisms drew heavily on the suggestion that he was too close to MI5 to be impartial, and that indeed his link with the Service (formalised with his privileged access to the defectors Gordievsky and Mitrokhin) made him a “court historian” instead of a clear-eyed and critical historian.[6] Persistent—if unfounded—rumours that Andrew was “MI5’s main recruiter in Cambridge” have done little to quieten critics.[7]Andrew’s response to these criticisms has been that he cannot afford to be biased towards the service. As The Guardian quoted Andrew, “Posterity and postgraduates are breathing down my neck. I tell my PhD students: I know you can only get on in the profession by assaulting teachers. You are not going to make a reputation by saying ‘Look, Professor Andrew was right all along the line’.”[6]

MICHAEL SHRIMPTON QC JAILED!! + OFFICIAL DEFENCE STATEMENT, “BREXIT: THE BETRAYAL” 07/16 + ON HEATH: VIDEOS – WATCH

MSJail for pervert barrister who said nuclear bomb would blow up the Queen at the London Olympics

Friday 06 February 2015

On handing down the 12 month sentence HHJ Judge McCreath said: “I must have regard to the very clear risk of disruption which Mr Shrimpton must have recognised when he made the false reports.
“This is a case that cries out for immediate custody, it is impossible for me to suspend the sentence in this case, however I am prepared to take a merciful approach.”
Last year Shrimpton, who says he legally advised General Pinochet in the nineties, failed in his appeal against a conviction for possesing indecent images of children.
He said that images of young boys found on a computer memory stick were put there by secret service agents, and that he was the victim of a government stitch-up.

If the Spanish respond to Brexit by invading Gibraltar we are unlikely to repeat the strategic mistakes of the Falklands War, where we failed to declare war on Argentina, failed, absurdly, to bomb Buenos Aires with our V-Force and generally didn’t kill enough ‘Argies’. The result, inevitably, is that Argentina still suffers from blood-lust and is hankering after a second war, which might see an Argentine invasion of the Falklands coordinated with a Spanish invasion of Gibraltar.

As we saw after 1945 with Germany it’s a big mistake to let your enemy off lightly – whole suburbs were left standing in some German cities in 1945, which was ludicrous. Pussyfoot with your enemy as we pussyfooted with Germany and Japan in World War II and they’ll just come after you again.

If there is another Anglo-Spanish War (the last was the Peninsula War, although that was more of a war in Spain, against our community partner Napoleon, rather than against Spain), the RAF will bomb Madrid and other strategic Spanish targets. Although France, Germany and Italy would probably stay neutral (the NATO treaty was not designed to deal with aggression by one NATO member against another), the sight of the RAF bombing the European mainland would be likely to have an adverse impact on any UK/EU negotiations.

Spyhunter : the secret history of German intelligence Volume:
Author(s): Shrimpton, Michael
Overview: The author has written this book as a work of fact based upon his knowledge, extensive sources and in-depth investigation of historic records. Whether he is factually correct or not is a matter for the reader to decide. The author is content to let history be his judge. Spyhunter by the renowned barrister and intelligence specialist, Michael Shrimpton, is one of the most intriguing books you will ever read. A fascinating alternative look at the history of espionage from the 11th century to the present day. An intelligence specialist with deep sources in the Pentagon, the CIA and elsewhere, Michael was also a consultant for the TV series ‘Spooks’. From Chairman Mao’s excesses to the methods his successors use to target prominent individuals who shape political and financial opinions in Europe, America and Australasia today – nothing escapes Spyhunter.

Anatoliy Golitsyn

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to navigationJump to search

Anatoliy Mikhaylovich Golitsyn CBE (August 25, 1926 – December 29, 2008)[1] was a Soviet KGB defector and author of two books about the long-term deception strategy of the KGB leadership. He was born in PyriatynUkrainian SSR. He provided “a wide range of intelligence to the CIAon the operations of most of the ‘Lines’ (departments) at the Helsinki and other residencies, as well as KGB methods of recruiting and running agents.”[2] He was an Honorary Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE)[citation needed] and, as late as 1984, was an American citizen.[3]

Golitsyn’s books[edit]

New Lies for Old[edit]

In 1984, Golitsyn published the book New Lies For Old,[16] wherein he warned about a long-term deception strategy of seeming retreat from hard-line Communism designed to lull the West into a false sense of security, and finally economically cripple and diplomatically isolate the United States. Among other things, Golitsyn stated:

The “liberalization” would be spectacular and impressive. Formal pronouncements might be made about a reduction in the communist party’s role: its monopoly would be apparently curtailed. An ostensible separation of powers between the legislative, the executive, and the judiciary might be introduced. The Supreme Soviet would be given greater apparent power, and the president of the Soviet Union and the first secretary of the party might well be separated. The KGB would be “reformed.” Dissidents at home would be amnestied; those in exile abroad would be allowed to return, and some would take up positions of leadership in government.

Sakharov might be included in some capacity in the government or allowed to teach abroad. The creative arts and cultural and scientific organizations, such as the writers’ unions and Academy of Sciences, would become apparently more independent, as would the trade unions. Political clubs would be opened to nonmembers of the communist party. Leading dissidents might form one or more alternative political parties.

There would be greater freedom for Soviet citizens to travel. Western and Unitized Nations observers would be invited to the Soviet Union to witness the reforms in action.[17]

Angleton and Golitsyn reportedly sought the assistance of William F. Buckley, Jr. (who once worked for the CIA) in writing New Lies for Old. Buckley refused but later went on to write a novel about Angleton, Spytime: The Undoing of James Jesus Angleton.[18]

The Perestroika Deception[edit]

In 1995, Anatoliy Golitsyn and Christopher Story published a book entitled The Perestroika Deception[19] containing purported memoranda attributed to Golitsyn claiming:

  • “The [Soviet] strategists are concealing the secret coordination that exists and will continue between Moscow and the ‘nationalist’ leaders of [the] ‘independent’ republics.”[citation needed]
  • “The power of the KGB remains as great as ever … Talk of cosmetic changes in the KGB and its supervision is deliberately publicized to support the myth of ‘democratization’ of the Soviet political system.”[citation needed]
  • “Scratch these new, instant Soviet ‘democrats,’ ‘anti-Communists,’ and ‘nationalists’ who have sprouted out of nowhere, and underneath will be found secret Party members or KGB agents.”[citation needed]
The Big Breach : From Top Secret To Maximum Security Volume:
Author(s): Richard Tomlinson

Richard Tomlinson was recruited by MI6, the British foreign intelligence service, during his senior year at Cambridge University. He quickly gained the trust and confidence of one of the world’s most effective intelligence organisations. MI6 relied on Tomlinson to smuggle nuclear secrets out of Moscow, to run an undercover operation in Sarajevo while the city was under siege, and to infiltrate and dismantle a criminal group that sought to export chemical weapons capabilities to Iran.
Four years after joining MI6, Tomlinson’s career was abruptly terminated for reasons that are still unclear. When he tried to fight the unjust dismissal, government accused him in breaching the Official Secrets Act and imprisoned him in one of the Britain’s toughest maximum security prisons.
Following his release, MI6 kept up its pressure, hounding Tomlinson, launching a smear campaign in the international press, and pressuring its allies around the world to illegally arrest and expel him.
The British intelligence service has used threats of legal action to force publishers in several European countries to abandon plans to publish this book.

Richard John Charles Tomlinson (born 13 January 1963) is a former officer of the British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6). He argued that he was subjected to unfair dismissal from MI6 in 1995, and attempted to take his former employer to a tribunal. MI6 refused, arguing that to do so would breach state security.

Tomlinson was imprisoned under the Official Secrets Act 1989 in 1997 after he gave a synopsis of a proposed book detailing his career with MI6 to an Australian publisher. He served six months of a twelve-month sentence before being given parole, whereupon he left the country. The book, named The Big Breach, was published in Moscow in 2001 (and later in Edinburgh), and was subsequently serialised by The Sunday Times. The book detailed various aspects of MI6 operations, alleging that it employed a mole in the German Bundesbank and that it had a “licence to kill“, the latter later confirmed by the head of MI6 at a public hearing.[5]

Tomlinson then attempted to assist Mohamed al-Fayed in his privately funded investigation into the death of Diana, Princess of Wales and al-Fayed’s son Dodi. Tomlinson claimed that MI6 had considered assassinating Slobodan Milošević, the president of Serbia, by staging a car crash using a powerful strobe light to blind the driver. He suggested that Diana and Dodi may have been killed by MI6 in the same way, although that claim was dismissed at their inquest in 2007. MI6 admitted that plans of that nature had been drafted regarding a different Eastern European official, but that the proposal had been swiftly rejected by management.

In 2009, MI6 agreed to allow Tomlinson to return to Britain, unfreeze royalties from his book and drop the threat of charges. MI6 also apologised for his mistreatment.[6] Staff at MI6 have been allowed employment tribunals since 2000, and have been able to unionise since 2008.[7][8]

If the great and powerful had the beneficence and wisdom of Gods, then all this would have been well: if with a greater knowledge of what is good for the people, they had as great a care for their interest as they have themselves, if they were seated above the world, sympathizing with the welfare, but not feeling the passions of men, receiving neither good nor hurt from them, but bestowing their benefits as free gifts on them, they might then rule over them like another Providence. But this is not the case. Coriolanus is unwilling that the senate should show their ‘cares’ for the people, lest their ‘cares’ should be construed into ‘fears’, to the subversion of all due authority; and he is no sooner disappointed in his schemes to deprive the people not only of the cares of the state, but of all power to redress themselves, than Volumnia is made madly to exclaim:

Now the red pestilence strike all trades in Rome,

The care of the state cannot, we here see, be safely entrusted to maternal affection, or to the domestic charities of high life. The great have private feelings of their own, to which the interests of humanity and justice must curtsy. Their interests are so far from being the same as those of the community, that they are in direct and necessary opposition to them; their power is at the expense of our weakness; their riches of our poverty; their pride of our degradation; their splendour of our wretchedness; their tyranny of our servitude. If they had the superior knowledge ascribed to them (which they have not) it would only render them so much more formidable; and from Gods would convert them into Devils. The whole dramatic moral of Coriolanus is that those who have little shall have less, and that those who have much shall take all that others have left. :IBID

The absurdity of a proxy election being analysed; with incomplete data and extrapolated to future events, regarding constitutional matters perhaps even of life and death and war and peace. When the body to which the elected people are to be sent is a toothless sheen of lipstick upon the fascist Pig which is the EU, and a flawed institution from which the electorate has already voted to secede from is perhaps reflected in the low turnout in the UK this time again, and historically.
Selection_752
 The Jamboree in Europe itself with a turnout a little over 50 % still barely manages to apply the coat of democracy paint beloved of Potemkin and Catherine the great, the UK farce with a turnout being of course much lower demonstrates the art of British irony, at best it’s an Establishment Pratfall.

Perhaps what it really tells us is the people who choose not to vote are actually the more articulate, why participate in what is only really a show, a pretence designed merely to give some sort of legitimacy to something with no democratic legitimacy what so ever.
Selection_753

On Sunday, the European Parliament will be transformed into a big media hub where around 1,300 journalists will follow and report from the elections.

“The media interest for these elections has been much higher than for previous elections. We never had so many journalists registered for the election night. This clearly demonstrates the growing importance of this trans-national democratic exercise, which is unique in the world” said Jaume Duch, spokesperson of the European Parliament mentioning also the more than 200 journalists coming from non-EU countries, including 54 from the US and 21 from Japan and 20 from China.

The Appearance of Democracy must be seen to be done?

“the hemicycle has been equipped with 110 TV stand-up positions – of which 55 positions in the chamber, 45 live positions for radio stations”

More facts

Of the almost 1300 journalists to be present:

  • 770 TV journalists representing 195 TV stations
  • 260 journalists from print and online outlets
  • 170 press agency reporters and
  • 70 radio journalists
  • Stand up stage in the back of the hemicycle: 420m² ( 3 levels )

  • 90 broadband connections (10MB) for broadcast transmission

  • 160 analogue lines for audio communication

  • 64 trucks registered for the parking area to load/unload material

One suspects that the metrics of the hardware and personnel are pretty much as close to facts as will appear in the news feeds and earnest pieces to camera emanating from the Standup Boxes.

So very little has changed since 2016, I think the prelim or predicate in the article by Yannis nails the reasons why.” The process any member state must follow to exit the EU is governed by Article 50 of the bloc’s Lisbon Treaty, which, ironically, was authored by a British diplomat keen to deter exits from the EU. ”

The EU has hardened its stance on Federalism of a very curious sort More Brussels and less Europe federalism with an ECB and Commission that simply does not allow subsidiarity in questions of monetary policy which is causing the French and Italian problems going on at the moment for which Mr Macron and Mssrs Tusk and Junker seem so blissfully in denial of. Karl Bildt was prescient in these pages here https://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/remaking-post-brexit-european-union-by-carl-bildt-2016-07# on these questions more generally.
The importance of Subsidiarity and the competencies of the commission are highlighted in this blog.

Most people of course will recite the “life liberty and the pursuit of happiness” when asked what they recall of the document but mine would be the lines that follow:

“That to secure these rights governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”

This says everything. Our rights are unalienable. And the only purpose of government is to secure these rights.

So why is it, how is it, that government is the very thing which we find ourselves defending against its tyranny?

I really do get annoyed when any remain voter talks about funding. People’s Vote declared one donation during the 2017 general election. It was for £82,822.45 a figure which coincidentally translates to €100,000 (at the time) which is why the figure is a random number. 1/
This donation came from a company called “Ferring” based in Glasgow which only makes about 3 times that figure annually, they donated 1/3rd of their entire earnings in 2017 to People’s vote… apparently. 2/
Or you can be honest, and look at their parent company which is Ferring Pharmaceuticals, which turn over £2bn annually, founded in Sweden and operates all over the EU. So it would appear that foreign money was funding campaigns, only the Remain campaign People’s vote, not leave.
Obviously, the electoral commission will not be investigating this, the media have largely ignored it, and the same will have happened during the latest campaign period. While the Brexit party have already been criticised and demands already made for their funding to be checked. 4/
We have evidence that the remain campaign accepted a €100,000 donation in the general election which is a criminal matter, not an administrative one. So as the results are announced, and the Russian funding claims are made with nothing to substantiate them, just highlight this.

There is now evidence that the EU (via companies it funds) have donated to Remain campaigns in the following;

1. EU referendum.
2. 2017 General Election.

How long until the evidence shows the interference in these EU elections? 6/

No one on the Remain side will care, they will ignore this because “EU good”. This is what will hurt them though, huge multinational evil pharmaceutical company working in conjunction with EU (who are a lobbyist bloc) to try and subvert democracy in the U.K. 7/
So do they admit they back the big cooperations that they complain about constantly? Or do they step back and see what the majority of us see about the EU. House of Cards (slight exaggeration) in real life. Faux democracy, and all about the interests of big established companies!
I’m guessing the standard defence, will kick in, they’ll block, resort to insults, or completely ignore what has been said and ask about the “crimes” of the leave campaign then ignore the point that there is still yet to be a single conviction (or charge) made. 8/

Oh well, it’s Sunday. Today we get to see the results, the complaints it wasn’t a fair vote etc… basically broken down into the following 3 traditions of those that lose in a democratic vote these days;

1. Call the other side cheats and say that they didn’t follow the rules.

2. Organise a protest (Monday obviously) to demand the vote is ignored and the losing side’s decision is implemented.

3. Ignore all implications of the vote and try and pass the reason of the vote onto another area of policy “they only voted “x” because of Austerity”

That’s my Sunday rant, in summary, we have a pattern for losing votes and there is mounting evidence against the Remain side for electoral lawbreaking that can only be suppressed for so long. The truth will out. Next thread, how not to put up a shelf in a home office.

Elections Etc

by John Curtice, Patrick English, Stephen Fisher and Eilidh Macfarlane.

Even though the votes have yet to be counted, the Conservatives and Labour already seem to be undertaking their own post-mortems of what promises to be poor results for both of them in the European Parliamentary elections. Within the Conservative party there is a lively debate taking place about whether or not in the wake of the anticipated success of the Brexit Party, Tories could and should embrace at least the possibility of leaving the EU without a deal. Meanwhile, Labour, anticipating perhaps that the party has lost votes to others whom have adopted a clearer position on Brexit, looks as though it is about to consider the possibility of coming out more firmly in favour of some kind of public ballot.

Doubtless, all sides in this debate will look to the pattern of the results on Sunday…

Reblogging

@chrisbarclay6296 I agree with your analysis, my only quibble is that whilst Nigel Farage is the Figurehead and opening Bat for the Brexit Party is clearly not Nigel Farage Building it, for that I think one needs to look at the Anglo American Waspish contingent largely prevalent in the Pentagon, I.e The Military Industrial Complex Rater than the State Department and the Langley / NSA crews , that is the Spooks. There is a split in the Oligarchy and Farage and Bojo are in separate factions of the Military Industrial Complex,
Rory Stewart is an interesting Blind side candidate whose dad was Q ( Technical Director of MI6) and Deputy to M. He will be Sedwills guy, Boris clearly will not be and Farage is not either.

COMPLOTS OF MISCHIEF, CHARLES PIDGEN. CONSPIRACY SNOBBERY.

Lance De Haven and Charles Pidgen, the next time some intellectual snob dis´s your suggestion that not all that people learn from History Books or NewsPapers is the truth, point them at these two gentlemen.https://philpapers.org/archive/PIGCOM.pdf

In Part 1, I contend (using Coriolanus as my mouthpiece) that Keeley and Clarke have failed to show that there is anything intellectually suspect about conspiracy theories per se. Conspiracy theorists need not commit the ‘fundamental attribution error’ there is no reason to suppose that all or most conspiracy theories constitute the cores of degenerating research programs, nor does situationism – a dubious doctrine in itself – lend any support to a systematic skepticism about conspiracy theories. In Part 2. I argue (in propria persona) that the idea that there is something suspect about conspiracy theories is one of the most dangerous and idiotic superstitions to disgrace our political culture.

If the great and powerful had the beneficence and wisdom of Gods, then all this would have been well: if with a greater knowledge of what is good for the people, they had as great a care for their interest as they have themselves, if they were seated above the world, sympathizing with the welfare, but not feeling the passions of men, receiving neither good nor hurt from them, but bestowing their benefits as free gifts on them, they might then rule over them like another Providence. But this is not the case. Coriolanus is unwilling that the senate should show their ‘cares’ for the people, lest their ‘cares’ should be construed into ‘fears’, to the subversion of all due authority; and he is no sooner disappointed in his schemes to deprive the people not only of the cares of the state, but of all power to redress themselves, than Volumnia is made madly to exclaim:

Now the red pestilence strike all trades in Rome,
And occupations perish.

https://ebooks.adelaide.edu.au/h/hazlitt/william/characters-of-shakespeares-plays/chapter6.html

The care of the state cannot, we here see, be safely entrusted to maternal affection, or to the domestic charities of high life. The great have private feelings of their own, to which the interests of humanity and justice must curtsy. Their interests are so far from being the same as those of the community, that they are in direct and necessary opposition to them; their power is at the expense of our weakness; their riches of our poverty; their pride of our degradation; their splendour of our wretchedness; their tyranny of our servitude. If they had the superior knowledge ascribed to them (which they have not) it would only render them so much more formidable; and from Gods would convert them into Devils. The whole dramatic moral of Coriolanus is that those who have little shall have less, and that those who have much shall take all that others have left. :IBID

Theresa May’s decision to resign on Friday week is a boost for the Conservative Party. But as new resarch shows all too clearly, Nigel Farage had a better future with her in place.

It’s official: Theresa May’s epitaph will be a disastrous euro election result.

Because the euroelections do not finish over here until Sunday at 8pm, the UK isn’t allowed to publish either exit polls or real results until 9 pm BST. But there is one interesting poll (fieldwork 16th May) done by Survation, which I find very revealing. I would say that, because it supports my own view.

This is the visual that goes with it:

eurovgenpoll2019.PNG

The questions asked both on the same day were how would respondents vote in the euros and at the next General Election. The differences are startling: while LibDem and UKIP ‘general election’ supporters remain loyal, Tory voters double…but the Brexit Party…

A great article and a very interesting discussion.
Pigou Dalton principle ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pigou%E2%80%93Dalton_principle ) is very relevant to any discussion on re-distribution, of course, one can delve into Henry George and GK Chesterton and Belloc and the distributive philosophies (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Distributism ) also pertaining to interest-free Money.

Surplus Energy Economics

GOVERNMENT AND POLITICS IN AN AGE OF DETERIORATING PROSPERITY

Though just over a month has passed since the previous article (for which apologies), work here hasn’t slackened. Rather, I’ve been concentrating on three issues, all of them important, and all of them topics where a recognition of the energy basis of the economy can supply unique insights.

The first of these is the insanity which says that no amount of financial recklessness is ever going to drive us over a cliff, because creating new money out of thin air is our “get out of gaol free card” in all circumstances.

This isn’t the place for the lengthy explanation of why this won’t work, but the short version is that we’re now trying to do for money what we so nearly did to the banks in 2008.

The second subject is the very real threat posed by environmental degradation, where…

europoll1.PNG

Alright – it might not look clear at first sight, but what the above chart shows is how the UK electorate is gradually retreating into what one might call ‘Opinion Redoubts’.

The Liberal Democrats – being the most unequivocally illiberal and undemocratic Party in favour of ignoring The People – are picking up support from (most probably) quite a few Tory Labour Remainers. The LibDems are now 1 point above Labour.

The Brexit Party (having trounced UKIP) is consolidating its lead (more than twice the votes of any other single Party) but the surge is…

The Game – Essential knowledge

There is one object to the Game – To get Rent!

Then become a Master at it, find The Key and get to NextLevel, where life is more valuable than wealth, finally.

This is largely achieved by acquiring secure exclusive possession to as much of the surface area of GameWorld as possible by any means, and then to collect it’s ever rising rental stream.

If you are a really wise trader, you’ll be aware of the timing needed to flip your property assets. Eventually if you are a leading GameMaster you will reach a level where you can start making loans secured against the value of real estate, known as DeadHands. Ultimately you may reach Elite status where you can write credit notes representing bundles of 1000’s of DeadHands and trade them on permanently with no guarantee nor insurance required.

In GameWorld rent is the only asset that rises in value. All other assets fall in comparison. Its also the only tax free asset. And the only asset bailed out by government of all sides and ideologies. Any player trading other assets is certain to end up a Slave. Its all priced in… to The Game.

There’s a dangerous FakeWorld myth circulating that talks about a popular game played there called Monopoly. The Game operates something like that so the myth goes.  For anyone talking about it in public it’s instant GameOver.

Eventually the Game reaches a stage where it can no longer sustain itself due to all the rents being of higher value than all the other assets, goods and services being made and traded. This is the point where the biggest profits of all are available to the smart investor. As the pyramid collapses most of the DeadHands will fall to close to zero value. This is the time for the Game Master to buy up as many as possible and hold out for a short time for them to be bailed out by TaxFines and Slaves.

This is the time when rents rise more than ever compared to all other assets. Soon the DeadHands will exceed pre crash levels and your portfolio will be priceless overnight often rising 5 or 6 times in value within a single Saros.
Any good GameWriter will try their best not to define terms and rules too clearly. That way the players who are winning, Game Masters, can use this player granted power to understand how to play better, a great advantage over the rest, and then misdirect other players to get even further ahead.

For skilful and thoughtful players who do “read the manual” we’ll give some hints to help you become one of these better players ahead of the others.

We’re not doing this as a gift or for reward for anything. If you find yourself here you must be seeking this knowledge. We have it, so are obliged to give it to you for free. Believers who do not genuinely look will not understand it even if it’s given to them:

    • GameWorld – a dystopian setting in which The Game is played

    • FakeWorld – a utopian world that makes no sense in The Game
    • GamePlay – how you choose to play the game, for better or worse
    • The Field – where all trade and exchange takes place, markets

    • Saros – standard cycle of play in GameWorld, the Game’s business cycle
    • Jubillee – the disastrous trap door, that if opened, zeros all Rent instantly
    • FameHall – history of celebrity players
    • Master – the best RentSeekers in GameWorld who eventually find The Key
    • Slave – the worst RentSeekers, always complaining about the rules
    • BadPlay – the hard work and poorly invested savings of a Slave
    • GoodPlay – the skilful art of RentSeeking attributed to the best players
    • Blindness – the faith that money is wealth or land is capital
    • RankClosing – Slaves foolishly joining forces to asset strip a Master
    • BuyPower – the rate per Saros at which Tokens change value
    • SubRewards – any windfall or subsidy used to encourage GoodPlay
    • TaxFines – punishment for BadPlay used to fund GameWorld social functions
    • TaxEvasion – a game skill second only to RentSeeking, privately respected, publicly frowned on
    • Rigulation – licensing favouring GoodPlay, keeping BadPlay off the Field
    • MythTruth – secret knowledge of free entry to a Pyramid
    • ReligioFact – trap doors used to trip players
    • The Olds – information on what is changing in GameWorld
    • AntiSocialMedia – the regulated machine that delivers The Olds
    • Drugs – generally food, protection and AntiSocialMedia
    • Medicine – any substance used to expand the mind and enhance GamePlay
    • AntiSocialEnterprise – play protected by IllFare, JobCreation or FakeCharity
    • IllFare – any play that donates Tokens to Slaves rent free
    • JobCreation – the power to grant or deny others the right to play
    • FakeCharity – pretending to “help others” in exchange for Tokens
    • PsychOlogy – propaganda, ‘language of the soul’, secret game knowledge
    • Knowledge – necessary to play well independently and without protection
    • Faith – wanting to believe in what someone else believes
    • SpiritWealth – GamePlay with the balls to affirm difficult realities on The Field
    • SpiritPoor – all other GamePlay
    • The Forest – a refuge where players near to GameOver may find The Key
    • Doors – places of major opportunity, opened with a large risk of GameOver
    • The Key or RedPill – the answer to The Game, how to get to NextLevel
    • NextLevel – all Players know where it is but are forbidden from talking about it
    • GameOver – death. Its OK, you can be reborn and start from scratch
    • SpecialMission – a test of authenticity all masters must undertake before entry to NextLevel. Not for the feint hearted

Playertypes

  • Andy – a robot servant which thinks it is human. AKA android, replicant  robot, zombie and so on
  • Socialist, Capitalist, Libertarian, Christian – players wanting NextLevel for themselves, GameOver for others
  • GreenMan – player willing to sacrifice many other players “to get the job done”
  • Heretic – anyone weird who mentions FakeWorld, The Key or NextLevel
  • Charlatan – a Slave masquerading as a Heretic
  • BladeRunner – a Slave paid for ‘retiring’ Masters, never finds the key, and ends up a Slave being chased by BladeRunners
  • Pharisee – seat of intellectual respect used to indict Heretics – High Priest
  • Quixana – player who finds The Key just before GameOver, too late!
  • GateKeeper – subordinate to a Pharisee, who uses intellect to obscure The Key
  • Vampire – changeling, whistleblower who tricks players into bankruptcy
  • Campaigner – mentally sick player who believes in conspiracy theory
  • Neo – a mythical FakeWorld character who possesses all Game knowledge
  • PsychOpath – a Robin Hood who wants ‘to be seen’ for his good deeds at any cost. A “syke”
  • Quark – slave masquerading as a master, usually really nice guys
  • Operative – public or private sector civil servant, usually MidClass players
  • MidClass – borderline slaves still playing more for a Master than them self

Play well. This is The Game.
