The fact that our present system of democracy is shot to hell, that democracy per se no longer exists as we live under a form of democratised dictatorship, is now a fact - just look around you and every day you will see examples of where those elected to serve us, be that nationally or locally, now control how we should act, think and speak.
Our politicians, by their very acts, are discredited in the eyes of the people; the people are disenchanted with those politicians they have elected, supposedly to represent their views; and the people remain disenfranchised by their politicians who refuse to grant them a voice over who should decide their nation's future and the laws by which they must live.
Yet still the people re-elect to parliament the same self-centred, self-opinionated, brain-dead; venal, incompetent individuals who have failed time and time again with the trust given to them. To use the words of Enoch Powell (slightly out of context, admittedly), we must be mad, literally mad, as a nation to be permitting this situation to continue unabated. The problem is that we are not mad, because if we were we would still have the power of reason - something now denied us by the brainwashing practised on us, to the extent we are fast becoming the slaves of those we are supposed to control.
To our detriment - and that of our country - it would seem that a quotation, one that I have taken from CallingEngland, will no longer resonate with the majority of my fellow men and women:
"If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."
I know not yet how, but let those democratised dictators - who believe they can control my every thought, word and deed - realise that I am prepared to perish, rather than accept the status of a slave.
