Three Things That Worry Me

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on June 8, 2010

As usual I’m sat here with at least three good topics for a blog, these subjects have been going around my head for a while, but became more prevalent this week. I know I should space my blogs out a little because sometimes they can be too much to take in for the average person. When I say that I’m not insinuating the vast majority of the population are stupid, I wouldn’t be so mean – in fact I just think you’re lazy. So I’m to going to write about three subjects in the same post, if that’s ok with you? If it’s too much for you then read a bit at a time, if reading this far is too much for you I suggest you give up all hope of finishing this blog, walking, talking and wiping your own arse and concentrate what brain power you do have on your breathing to stay alive. As it’s obvious you have the attention span of a Gnat and are about as intelligent as Slug about to fall in to beer trap full of it’s dead brethren. Now I’m calling you stupid. 

I’m going of topic so let’s get back to it. These subjects are ones that niggle at me and really make me worry for the future of the country and the people in it. Why should I, You, or Anyone else care you’re probably thinking? Well it’s the future of the nation and our culture that is at stake. You should care about that to some degree, if you don’t then you fucking well should you selfish, lazy arsed wankers. If your gut reaction to that sentence was one of anger and annoyance at the fact I just called you selfish and lazy for not caring about the world when you have a life to lead, then you’re the person(s) who need to pay more attention and care about what happens to the country. I know people are different and worry about different things in their lives, but worrying about the state of the country in general is important as it will – at some point – affect your life. I’ve always thought about the world around me from a young age, it’s just the way I am, I’m not saying you have to be like that all the time but the state of the nation must cross your mind at some point. So you must get as pissed off as me sometimes? Regardless of my reasons I do care, so if you don’t then fuck off and do something else, I’m sure there’s a million and one things you could be doing right now other than being lectured at by a Cunt like me. So go on… off you fuck to the million and one anesthetics that stop you from thinking about reality.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Anyway, on to my first subject. My Generation, what a waste of time and effort! What do they actually do? They all truly are the product of imported ’80s U.S. Capitalism and Culture, or the ‘Greed is Good’ Culture. They don’t care about anything else but how they look, are perceived, what you have and pissing their money up the wall on a weekend. They’re so vain, arrogant, hollow, selfish and materialistic. What kind of basis is that for a Society? It just really winds me up because the majority of them just don’t seem to give a shit about anything but themselves, they go out and get drunk or drugged out of their skulls on a weekend, it’s their salvation and only means of letting off steam. How sad is that? They’re incapable of relaxing any other way, what’s more is they have to drink to absolute destruction. Why? Why get so drunk you wake up the next day and don’t remember how you got home? Then they go and brag to their mates how pissed they were and post the pictures on Facebook or one of the other Social Networking sites. Why? What’s so wrong in their lives they have to do this? If you don’t go out and get completely wasted you’re some how boring or missing out? I think it’s the opposite, some people are so boring or bored in their every day life that they have to hide behind the alcohol to function in a social situation or to numb out the reality of their lives. Surely the novelty wears off eventually and people can’t hide from their reality anymore? Who can live in a perpetual world of drunkenness? It must be horrible!

Another thing about my Generation is they want everything NOW! NOW! NOW! They’re not prepaird to work for anything unless it pays well, they want the car, the money, the house and everything else their parents had or were promised by modern society. Obviously it doesn’t work like that, with the U.S. Capitalism came job losses, back in the 80’s under a Tory Government a lot of UK Jobs, industries and companies went overseas and they’ve continued to go overseas under a Labour Government. Why? Because all that matters is profit, and this future of riches and a population having a say and stake in Private business never really materialised for the majority of the population, mostly because many of the population were poor in the first place and couldn’t buy shares in anything, without a job they had no chance. Now a whole Generation are scraping by wondering what the fuck happened and where their Jobs are. Those that do have jobs spend their wages on useless over-priced crap they don’t even need because they HAVE to have it because the box in the corner, the posters Ads and the Jones’ tell them they need it. In reality they don’t need it, they just have it so they can show off how successful they are and to compete with other people.

It’s this type of mindless consumption and selfish hollow materialism that worries me. People are so caught up in trivial rubbish and themselves that they don’t notice their country is being run in to the ground by successive Governments backed by outside forces who don’t give a shit if they do anything wrong or not, both Government and outside forces are set for life when they leave office. There’s not only that but the type of society we’re creating, if my generation is anything to go by the up and comers are going to be Prima Donnas. They grew up on reality TV, celebrities and a society where you must have the most expensive things to be a ‘Someone’ and do pretty much nothing to get it. It’s a society that fosters fakery over Substance of character of the person. You don’t need to be intelligent, you don’t need to study hard, you don’t need to work hard, you just have to get on TV, get a record contract, signed up to a Premier League football team, sell drugs or live on benefits while you wait for someone to realise your obvious greatness and give you a job where they pay you £20 quid an hour. My generation’s society is already here, the next one I can see just coming in to view and I don’t like it.

____________________________________________________________________________________________

The second thing that worries me is the changing face of the UK’s culture and society in general. I’m aiming this specifically at the religion of Islam. In the late 1970s we had 100,000 Muslims in the UK, just over thirty years later and there is now over two million. What’s more is the UK’s native and non-Muslim population’s birth rate is falling. People are having fewer children in modern times because of the advent of the female contraceptive and women also choosing to have a career first and have children later in life. As you will know Muslims don’t believe in contraception, though I’m sure some crafty ones do use it, the majority don’t, which is why the Islamic birth rate in the UK is higher than the natives and non-Muslim Brits already here. To sustain a culture you need a certain amount of people to carry on that culture, and as you know the native UK population has been dropping and the original culture, however you want to define it, has been replaced with multiculturalism, which pretty much leaves us without a solid base culture or identity. So you have a bunch of native white people scratching their heads wondering what they are with several minorities with their clearly defined cultures, you can pretty much see it’s a cultural vacuume ready to be filled. It’s just a matter of who’s going to fill it first.

In the EU Muslim immigration has been in large numbers since the late 1980s, with even more immigration to the EU, especially to the UK because we have no control of our borders, regardless of what the government says, the Muslim population will increase. So we have more immigrant Muslims as well as the ones already here.

Why worry about this? They’re just another minority, right? Well if in 30 years they can increase from 100,000 to over two million, just think how long it will take before they’re at least half of the population. What bothers me about Muslims is their backward religion, if you look at many Muslim majority countries you’ll see what a mess they are, even the rich ones like Saudi-Arabia. The reason for this is the religion and it’s law system, it’s stone age, it was wrote in the 7th century. In fact we have some Government sanctioned Sharia Law courts already operating in the UK, they only deal with marriage, disputes and inheritance, but even in them arms of Sharia law they discriminate against women as they’re seen as lesser than men. Thus the odds are always set against them, whereas in British law they would be seen as equals to men and thus be treated the same.

To cut a long story short I don’t want to live in a Muslim country under Sharia law. Nor do I want the UK to become a Muslim nation. Yes, you may think it’s impossible, but if you look at the birth rates in the UK and the Immigration numbers you’ll see it isn’t so impossible. Islam, like all religion is fascist in nature, even more so than Christianity and Judaism, and it’s the fascism within a supposed ‘Religion of Peace’ that I fear. Islam doesn’t like the idea of the individual, everyone has to fall in line, everyone has to be under God, they consider everyone under God even if you don’t believe in their God. The individual doesn’t matter in Islam and never will, only God matters. They think the Islamic law extends outside the Muslim world. It’s this arrogance and insistence that the world is God’s and I’m under It’s rule by default that scares me, what scares me even more is the amount of passages in the Qur’an (Islamic Bible) that advocates killing non-believers, Homosexuals, Lesbians and Blasphemers. There’s no tolerance in Islam, unless it’s for Islam. Non-Muslims are treated as second class citizens in Muslim countries, you only get full citizen status if you’re Muslim, unless you’re a Muslim woman in which case you don’t have many rights. That’s another thing about Islam, it’s so male dominated and women are treated like we’re back in the stone age!

There’s no freedom within Islam, unless it’s the freedom to worship their God. Like most religions Islam is Conservative by default, and in recent years it’s been getting even more Conservative due to a revival within Islam that started in the 1970s. The current trend seems to be leaning towards Ultra-Conservatism, this type of Conservatism has been spreading across the world, just look at Saudi-Arabia, Pakistan, The Sudan, Iran and Afghanistan. In fact Saudi-Arabia has been funding this spread across the world with their Oil profits, from London to Indonesia, they’re spreading their interpretation of Islam. And the West will not say thing about it because they’re close bed fellows with the Saudis and OPEC. What’s sick about it is their version of Islam is the right one! It’s not like it doesn’t say don’t beat you wife, or don’t kill the non-believers in the Qur’an, because it does. Their religion does say that, and any Muslim that says it doesn’t is a liar. The Qur’an is just as much a book of hate as a BNP leaflet is. Yet it’s allowed to spread and exist in the UK as a registered “Religion of Peace”. Which is a complete joke because Islam is far from a religion of peace and what’s worse is it has a Political arm. Political Islam does exist and will try to gain a foot hold in the UK at some point. As the Muslim population increases there will be a growing call for them to be represented by Muslims, from here we’ll have Islamic Political Parties, in fact we already do have some they’re just not main stream. From there legislation will start to change to reflect the wishes of the Conservative Muslim Population. That is when the UK will start to go backward Politically, socially and culturally and the discrimination of the non-Muslims will begin.

Islam is fascist, arrogant, hateful, bigoted and dominating, lets not forget not crazy about free speech! That’s why I want no part of it in Europe and why it deserves no respect at all, because as ideologies go… it’s in the same category as Nazism.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

The State of the Union. I said to someone back in 2006/7 that within 10 or so years the United Kingdom will dissolve itself, after 300 years of other nations trying to dissolve it for us. The people doing the dissolving are Nationalists in Scotland and Wales, let’s not forget the Politicians in Westminster who give the said countries a bad deal when it’s tax and budget time. The state most likely to leave the Union first will be Scotland, they have a national vote on independence next year (2011), and if the majority say yes, it’s the end of a 300+ year partnership that saw all members of the Union benefit. All that time we stood shoulder to shoulder during good and bad times. I’ll admit the English parter in this Union was arrogant and unfair when it come to taxes and distribution of the kitty money. But isn’t that a problem that can, and has been to a degree, fixed?

Why Independence? From what I’ve read of the Scottish Nationalist policy they’d join the EU? Isn’t that just exchanging one Union for another Union? In fact it’ll be worse with the new EU laws coming in to place, Scotland or Wales will just be another part of the European Union, generating taxes and having them taken off them and given to parts of the EU they didn’t want the money going to. How’s that any different from the British Union? The answer is it isn’t, it’s just a group of Nationalist who haven’t thought this through and would cut of their nose to spite their own face i.e the UK being the face and Scotland being the nose (no insult to the Scots intended). It just seems to me the Scottish Nationalists don’t like the English, they resent the fact the English have led the Union since the Scottish lost influence, they were represented, but mostly the English led Britain. However there’s also the legitimate problem of unequal taxing and allocation of funds done by the central UK Government for decades.

We can’t fix what happened in the past, we can’t fix the arrogance and unfairness that the English heaped on the Scots, Welsh and Irish, but we can fix it now, in the present! I’m sure we could come up with a tax and new Political system to have everyone represented equally while having Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and even England independent to a degree. But somehow, with the economic problems and the UK losing it’s powers to the EU we’re pretty much done. It’s just so sad such a great country which such a rich history will be sucked in to a EU super state, run by the French and Germans, two countries that have fought against the UK since we joined.

______________________________________________________________________________________________

So the population are becoming arrogant vain morons, industry is down the toilet, society is on the wane and Islamification seems to be on the way, and to top it all off the country’s out of puff and about to be sucked in to an EU superstate and the Scot’s are after leaving at our weakest point. Things can only get better.

Mondern Capitalism, Consumerism And The Quality Of A Product

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on August 28, 2009

I aint been around for five or six days, you probably didn’t notice because I’m always disappearing for months on end! haha. I’ve been letting my back rest while the router/modem at our place decided it was faulty. So my back is feeling much better after a rest and now the net is back I can blog a little!

My Vlogging idea hasn’t got off the ground yet because my PC cam’s quality has degraded so much! You want quality you have to pay through the nose for it! It’s obvious these Companies could mass produce a quality camera that will last a long time for a reasonable price. But no, the law of modern Capitalism says otherwise, especially where electronics are concerned. You buy a modern electronic device and it’s out of date in six months, the same can be said for operating systems for Personal Computers too.

When you buy expensive PC Cams they usually degrade or break after two years or so and also will most likely not work on any new Windows or Mac Operating Systems because they don’t support the hardware or software anymore. Yes the manufactures of the cams do updates but eventually they want it to stop working so you go out and buy a new one! So eventually they stop supporting it, this little rule of business applies to Operating Systems too. For example, Windows XP, it’s Microsoft’s best OS for some time and people like it, when Microsoft brought out Windows Vista people’s reactions to the new OS was luke warm at best. So what do Microsoft do?… they stop supporting XP so you’ll have to up-grade to some kind of Vista OS.

I know these companies have to stay in business and want people to buy their new devices and offerings, but not at the expense of the publics pockets. These companies not only want you to buy their goods but are telling you what you want by forcing this stuff on you! I thought market forces decided what we get, not the producers who supply us? We want X, Y and Z but they supply A, B and C because they think it’s what we want, and when we don’t want it they force it on us. In a Computer software industry where there’s only one user-friendly Operating System with the rest a little complicated it leaves you a little strapped for choice so you have to choose what Microsoft offer. The same can be said for the hardware and other electronic devices, they make it built not to last because it’s the nature of the business and make you pay through the nose for it when it aint quality!

You could say it’s the nature of the electronic industry, but I’ve observed the same kind of trend in the clothing, furniture and even housing industries! Clothes for example, you can have the same pants made in the same place, some then have a designer label sewn on them, the others don’t. One person pays £30 quid for a pair with the label on, the other pays £5 quid for a pair with no label on it. They’re both the same article and wear-out at the same time if worn the same amount of times. Another instance, a bed, my grandmother bought a light-weight Iron bed back in 1930s for a good price, maybe earlier, and it lasted ’till 1996! It was her Brother’s while he was at home, then was used for one of her own sons then her grandchildren! How many beds these days last that long? How much furniture at all last over 5 years these days?

The idea of you get what you pay for is very seldom the case these days, nothing is built or made to last because you don’t make more money that way, it would put some businesses out of business and lose profits for some, and God forbid that should happen! Ever since the end of World War Two the principle you get what you pay for has melted away and been replaced by ‘CONSUME! CONSUME! CONSUME!’ of shoddy rubbish under the pretence that it’s quality to increase profits.

So it looks like I’ll be making audio of my blogs instead of videos, I’ll have to put some pictures on there to illustrate what I’m saying. Should be good!

Surrender

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on July 1, 2008

Hiya everyone! Sorry I aint been about but I really have zero motivation at the moment! I’ve been ill on and off ever since I got out of hospital after my op in April to remove a dermoid cyst from my mouth and neck! I must have another little lump out tomorrow too! Blah blah blah blah… I don’t want to bore you with my numerous happenings. I just thought I owed you all an explanation of where I’ve been Actually, I’ve been mostly on MySpace commenting profiles, but not a lot of blogs! Why can’t Live spaces have profile comment boxes? They’re so much easier and my PC wouldnt freeze up when I comment spaces boxes! grrrrrrr

Anyway, to tide the readers of my blogs over here’s a repost from my back-up page last year.. It’s called ‘Surrender’, and it’s sort of how I still feel now. Oh… and can anyone answer me this question? What’s the point of contributing to society when that society is hollow, corrupt, greedy, selfish and built on the backs the exploited?

                                                        SURRENDER

I’m not sure what sort of conclusion I’m going to come to at the end of this post, because as always my blogs are usually just one big long in-depth question, with no clear answer! So bear with me if I sound a little fragmented and incoherent.

Ever since I was old enough to comprehend and understand the magnitude of the society around me (About 14), I’ve always had this feeling that sooner or later I will have to surrender to the system. Yes I know, “Surrender to the system” very clichéd, but ultimately true. The system I’m talking about is my own personal view of the system, a combination of Capitalism and Human social conditioning. Human social conditioning differs from country to country, owing to ideological, religious and cultural differences, most of the Western or Westernized world has the same kind of HSC because they have Capitalism and history in common. So I am only going to touch on the British kind as that is what effects me and is what I am talking about in this post.

Throughout life you are under pressure in some way or another to conform to whichever community or social group you are in. Be it at the office (in a job), school, peer groups and even family. But to me, this is just total and utter surrender to the system! Making friends and getting along with your family is fine, just as long as you don’t change your attitude or the person you are to do it. What I view as surrender is: Working a 9 to 5 job you just do not like, just so you can please your parents, family, lovers, friends or society in general, because that’s what society want’s you to do. People feel compelled to go out and get a job no matter what it is so people don’t think they are lazy or a sponger. They feel compelled to go out and get the money that will put them on the pedestal they think they need to compare and measure up to others. They think money makes and equals a better person, they think a job makes and equals better status in life, they think a high bank ballance and status elevates them above others, when it doesn’t.

They go to work to earn money to buy the most expensive designer clothes to wrap themselves in a sort of removable, wearable, popularity and personality. They have to buy the most expensive commodities to give the impression of greatness and wealth to others and to show they have reached the pinnacle of society. This isn’t just the rich I’m talking about, it’s the working class! They actively mimic and aspire to the life and style of the rich and higher classes. In the past the working class were all about putting food on the table, now the majority lust for the life of the high classes, they seek status and the expensive lifestyle. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with making your life more comfortable, but it’s just the attitude change that comes with it that I don’t like. Like the “I’m better than you because I earn more money than you and I own property.” shite.

I’m sorry, but I just can’t resign myself to that, and can’t live my life that way. It’s just so uniform and wrong, it really gnaws at me! To me it goes like this, Go to school, be taught, go to College, be taught some more, go to Uni (If you can afford it!) pay for and earn a degree you may not even need, get a job (Even one you may not like) to get money, get the girl, get the expensive car, the house and the mortgage (AKA the noose!), have the kids, work for the rest of your life, if you’re lucky you may see your pension (If you have one at all), then you snuff it! Oh, and the bits in between when you’re not working is your life! Why does this happen? Mostly because of Human social conditioning and Capitalism. I know some people are happy in what they do and are happy doing the above, but I can’t, and most people just do it because it’s what is expected of them. How many people work jobs and work with people they despise? How many miserable bastards do you see going to work every morning with a face like thunder? That’s right, a hell of a lot! And they nearly all work soul-destroying jobs!

Now, to some people a job is a means to an end, to live and survive in a capitalist world and society. But once you are in, you surrender your life to the system and you become part of it. From that point on, in my opinion, your life is set and uniform! You run your life according to the system’s requirements and not your own. You have a life, but only from 5pm to 9am (Usually), the rest belongs to the system. You become a slave to your possessions, working to keep up the rental payments on your new car, your new HD widescreen TV and all the other expensive and non expensive shite you don’t need. In essence, it makes you think like you can’t live with out it, when you can.

I know it’s the nature of Capitalism and it keeps people and the economy alive, but surely there must be a less greedy, hollow, selfish and soul-destroying way to live and survive? Maybe people could work for free? They could do the jobs they want, work for free and take what they need (As much as they need and a little over) from the supermarket? If there isn’t enough jobs for the people, then they rotate the workforce every three or six months so everybody has a turn. Mr. X who likes to bake, bakes for 3 months then Mr. X takes three months off and lets Mr. Z take over, while Mr. X doesn’t work he can still take what he needs (With just over what he needs) from the supermarket. This would work in every type of job, just imagine, every type of job would be filled and the population’s work force would work on and off on rotas, they would also have more time off to live their lives with their families. Obviously, there are going to be jobs that no body wants to do, they will still have to be done. Everyone starts from the bottom and works their way up, regardless of qualifications or background, I would do it, as long as it benefited the whole society and I was elevated after my time was up. It would need some tweaking but it would be workable.

Unfortunately there’s always going to be some selfish awkward big-headed bastard who think’s it’s beyond them to do the mundane jobs! They want to go right to the top and stay there and be richer, more powerful and have better status than everybody else! These type of people run the system now, we would have no chance to convince them to change, the population is so trapped in side the system now they don’t even notice what’s going on. They mindlessly sit there watching the box in the corner with the pictures on, keep themselves amused with cheap shit they buy, they are all to preoccupied and contented with what they got they don’t want to change. So we will never convince them to change, they have everything they want (So they think), why would they want to change?

So I’m already half way across the line, I am in fact in the system, I rely on it. The money I get to live comes from the system, I am sick at the moment so I can’t work, I’ve been sick for a while (It’s an illness that can’t be faked, believe me!). The money I get, before anybody starts saying they support me, is money my parents paid in to the system when they worked, so I’m entitled to it! I never thought I’d say it, but I’m glad I’m sick so I can’t work! It saves me the indignity of getting a soul destroying job I despise and working full-time taking my life and happiness away to fill the pockets of the state with my unfairly taxed contribution. It’s so sad, I don’t think it will ever end, look at the 60’s for fucksake? All those hippies who were counterculture? Well, a lot of are businessmen now! They’re politicians, bankers, arms dealers and all the rest of the stuff they were against. They became what they despised… the system! Why? Because they left Uni and got jobs because the whole thing was just a rebellious phase for them. Just like it is for today’s so-called counterculture cultures, i.e Modern Hippies, Punks, Anti-capitalists and all the others. They nearly all conform in the end.

As for me, well, I’m under no illusions, I may have to join the rest of the sheep in the future. Going from job to job, because of no job security. I’ll be very lucky to get a pension for when I retire. Trapped on a run down Northern estate full of plebs, chavs, scallys and drug dealers who all have wafer-thin self-esteem and an insistence on proving themselves in some way. The words of John Lydon come to mind, “No future for you!” How fuckin’ true to, unless you consider no job security and working in McDonald’s, restaurants and retail as a future! The whole system and society is bollocks!

A society that measures the worth of a person by how much tax they pay, what their bank balance is and derives personality, self-esteem and soul from clothes, commodities and status, needs dismantling and starting a fresh or at least subverting Properly!
