Bob Marley said that, wrote that down, and made a song about it.
Look at this world we are in now, and the spirit of that line from the seventies emanates through to our times here, today.
This whole Cummings affair. We can all relate to the position he is going with on some level. Looking out for oneself, and those nearest and dearest to you, and lying if necessary to protect those aforementioned nearest and dearest. This is what the Conservatives always do. They act and campaign in a prism of narrow self interest. It is the way of the Tories. We can all relate to that on some level, but must, most certainly, not succumb to that train of thought. (Succumb is an excellent word that ends in a b).
Narrow Self Interest.
It is always the same. Lower taxes for the rich. Never a Land tax, never a Wealth tax, always get the plebs to work for as little as possible. Laugh and cheer in the House of Commons when pay rises for NHS staff get voted down. Narrow self interest appeals to everyone who makes a bit of dosh. The long term consequences of this of this are of no concern to Tories. Short term self interest is all.
I am an atheist. But I see all around spiritual wickedness in high and low places. In high places we see SPADs and PMs alike lie blatantly. Cummings, on his first night back in work following his expedition to Durham, edited his Blog to reference Corona viruses, then cited that (edited) post in his preposterous speech in the Rose Garden, trying to show how clever he was foreseeing all this.
...On his first night back at work he chose to edit his fucking Blog, remember we are in the middle of a pandemic, he chose to edit his fucking blog, to show how clever he was, not realising that actual smart people would instantly find him out. Dumb Fuck.
In Low places we see the likes of Farage and Yaxley-Lennon basically pulling the same shit. It is not right.
High and Low places.
Don't get me started on the racism. A survey today showed that BAME staff in HNS hospitals are significantly less likely to get adequate PPE than their White English counterparts. WTF?
The far right ATL and BTL in newspapers and in places like this (OK not so much here) call us communists, not understanding the fundamental difference between communists and socialists. Not understanding the difference in fact between narrow self interest and any more egalitarian viewpoint. This is the fundamental point. We are not all communists. We are Socialist, liberal. We are Democrats.
We are here to fight you and your spiritual wickedness out of existence. We see you for what you are and will defeat you.
Truly sickening rulers of the world.
Do everything you can to fight them.......
