Because of You!
Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on January 31, 2010
There’s no ‘Wankers of The Week’, this week. The reason for this is I can’t bring myself to watch the news or read the papers much anymore. It’s not so much the media in the UK, for the most part the TV media in the UK is fairly unbiased with its reporting, though they do have bias in some areas. But what TV news network doesn’t? It could be a hell of a lot worse, it could be like the Chinese controlled state TV or even paranoid, ideologically and corp influenced U.S. TV.The news papers in the UK are complete shite! The tabloids are as bad as you hear! The only thing they’re good for is tramps bedding and toilet roll, in fact British tabloid paper ‘The Sun’ has been voted Number 1 paper for bog roll and bedding the last 20 years in a row by popular tramps magazine ‘The Big Issue’. I was talking to my friend Pete about the news paper ‘The Daily Mirror’ after my media comment in my last blog, he found the same problem with it I did, it’s slipped along way down from what it used to be. I’m not saying it was 100% biased, far from it, but now it’s almost a perfect copy of The Sun! It’s only missing the tits on page three! Oh wait… they do have tits on page three, usually some soap, pop or pointless celeb stars! Katie and Mr. Andre anyone? (US readers think Pam Anderson and Justin Timbergimp, Married!, one’s famous for having tits the other’s famous for being a talentless tit!).
Anyway, I’m going off topic a little, the reason is I just can’t bring myself to read or watch is because the content winds me up so much. If it isn’t complete, biased, made-up rubbish then it’s usually reported the wrong way or done just right but not aired as such again. Either way it always pisses me off, because I’m sat there not being able to do anything because the rest of my countrymen are bone-idle and fucking lazy to do anything about it! Mostly because when the news is reported they either fixate on what ever celeb scandal is unfolding at the time or they’re waiting for the sport round-up. It just really gets on my nerves I’m one of a handful of people who would put their life on the line for change. I could do this and lose everything in the process and my fellow countrymen would just shrug and say: “Stupid cunt, should know you can’t change anything. I didn’t ask Him to do it anyway“.
Well… the reason things wont change is because of you! That attitude of: “We can’t change anything anyway, it’s pointless.” is why we’re in the hole we are! You’re exact reason for not doing anything is what’s causing the problem! While you sit there and tut at the news or ignore it completely because you’re reading heat magazine while scratching your arse, is the reason for the problem. You don’t take notice long enough or you do and you think you’re in the know because you get your info from The Gordian or some other news source? You’re dead wrong! Even when you do notice a problem, how long will you think about it for? What will you consider doing? The answer is 10 minutes and fuck all because you’re shit scared of putting your neck on the line to make a positive change and get rid of the problems that continually blight us. Yet you’d be happy for someone else to go out and do it for you. Or vote for someone to do it for you! Get off your arses you lazy bastards and do it yourself! Casting a vote doesn’t mean your involvement in Politics is over, you have to watch and scrutinise all sides of every party, story and decision instead of letting someone else do it for you.
Read and educate yourself, not with one source, but with several! The Library, the interest, the media, blogs, history and many more! The sources are many, your will to find and take in what they offer is a big fat zero! Why? Because you’re too busy being distracted by trivial rubbish, shoes, mobile phones, celeb shite, drugs, booze and many other things, the same things you’re afraid to lose if you do try to make a change. Well it’s either you can sit and consume like a sheep untill all your rights but to consume have been taken away. Or you can stand up pay attention and make a change by just being aware of what’s going on around you! It isn’t hard to do, you just have to read, and again… I have to state don’t just read one source, don’t just look at one side of the story or choose one ideology (Political side) because you was brought up with that, your family and friends support the same Political Party or because you’re thinking purely of your own self-interests. Look at things from every angle and read as much as you can comfortably take in.
Understanding Politics and the world around you IS NOT BEYOND YOU! That’s what all the Politicians and the powers that be want you to think! That way you’re easier to control and manipulate. If you’re not ignorant of the world around you, they’re powerless! I mean all Politicians all along the political spectrum, Socialist, Communist, Liberal, Libertarian, Conservative etc… They want you to think what they want you to think! You need to question everything and everyone! That includes all your news sources, don’t take anything they say as 100% truth or not biased, because they all are to some degree!
Yes, reading and watching the media pisses me off too, but you know what?… I still do it, I still watch and read when I aint winding myself up with it. Even though I’m not watching I’m still aware, I’m still trying to inspire people to educate and think for themselves. I want the rest of Humanity to pull their head’s out of their arses and change things with me. This change doesn’t have to be physical, just mental. The alternative of not changing our ways and attitudes is not an option. Just a back and forth of political parties doing nothing but preserving the status quo. If you don’t change, well… you’re going to wake-up one day with your freedoms taken away right under your nose because you was too busy watching TV, reading shite celeb mags and just generally being ignorant, and you’ll be in a Fascist state! Don’t think for a minute that it can’t happen, because it can! It can happen all to easy.
