The sight of the Union Flag & photo of the Queen behind the minister makes my skin crawl.


Because Britain is an Orwellian construct of lies, deceit & a regime of rewards & intimidation.
Britain is not a nation, but a mercenary #PatronState deceitfully posing as a nation, in order to legitimise itself, its ruling elites & the immense power they wield & abuse. ImageImage
However, the fact that I can tweet the above without fear of state retribution is something I value very highly & attribute to Britain's & the West's respect for the individual's freedom to speak his or her mind. In most countries it would not be possible.

There are two fundamentally different ways a society can be organised:
1) Undemocratically, from the top down.
2) Grassroots-democratically, from the bottom up.

Britain, like all so-called nation states, is organised undemocratically from the top down.
We enjoy some very important rights & freedoms in the UK, but our so-called parliamentary, i.e. representative, democracy is a farce, a political stitch-up, which facilitates government of, by & for the elites & favoured clients of the state, NOT the people at large.
And it's the same in America, which never became the nation its founders had hoped it would, but just a bigger, more powerful, clone of Great Britain: an Orwellian construct of lies, deceit & a regime of rewards & intimidation.

British #RepresentativeDemocracy is a farce, which I want to replace with #GrassrootsDemocracy, whereby, within a single party, called #ContraPot, we organise ourselves into genuine communities & nations, representatives of which will convene in a #ContraPotParliament.
#ContraPot is in contradistinction to Britain's existing #PotParliament, at Westminster, which is committed to the #MeltingPot of Post-Racial #Multiculturalism, DIVERSITY, Inclusion & #AntiRacism, from which it derives part of its spurious moral authority.
Another part of its spurious moral authority, Parliament derives from its claim to represent a nation.

Britain is not a genuine nation, but a mercenary #PatronState deceitfully posing as a nation, in order to legitimise itself, its ruling elites & the power they wield & abuse. ImageImage

George Orwell based his novel, 1984, on 1930s fascism & communism, projecting them onto a future Britain & unwittingly making it difficult for us to recognise how #BigBrother would manifest himself in liberal democracies like our own.
Manifest himself he does, but not as in 1984. Instead, we are left many freedoms, while at the same time being enslaved - rich & poor alike - to BigB & #TheMatrix of state & capital. As in the film, most are completely unaware of it, & the well-served have no reason to become so.
But enslaved we are, to a system that is inherently unjust, inhumane, & unsustainable on our finite, vulnerable & overpopulated planet, #SpaceshipEarth.

Thus enslaved, our leaders have been unable to initiate the #SustainabilityRevolution on which our very survival depends.

#AntiRacism is a religion, which now dominates the West & needs to be taken as seriously as you would need to take Islam, if you lived in Saudi Arabia.

Religion derives from Latin, religare, meaning to bind people together, & is thus a source of POWER.
Americans fought a civil war over the religion of the Union, which was, & became an ever greater source of power that has been abused throughout American history. If the Confederacy had won, power would still have been abused, of course, but in two separate states.
The American constitution & the rule of law mercifully limit the abuse of power, but not nearly enough to achieve a humane & sustainable society.

The religion of Anti-Racism plays out within the religion of the Union & of every other sovereign western state.
