towards a world social democracy, there may still be
very great delays and disappointments before it becomes
an efficient and beneficent world system. Countless
people - will hate the new world order - and will die

we have to bear in mind the distress of a generation

“Under Socialism you would not be allowed to
be poor. You would be forcibly fed, clothed, lodged,
taught, and employed whether you liked it or not. If
it were discovered that you had not the character and
industry enough to be worth all this trouble, you might
possibly be executed in a kindly manner. . . .”

Woman’s Guide to Socialism and Capitalism
1928.] [Quoted from centurean2.wordpress.com]
“Since that first publication we have all got
forward surprisingly. Events have hustled thought along
and have been hustled along by thought. The idea of
reorganizing the affairs of the world on quite a big
scale, which was "Utopian," and so forth,
in 1926 and 1927, and still "bold" in 1928,
has now spread about the world until nearly everybody
has it. It has broken out all over the place, thanks
largely to the mental stimulation of the Russian Five
Year Plan. Hundreds of thousands of people everywhere
are now thinking upon the lines foreshadowed by my Open
Conspiracy, not because they had ever heard of the book
or phrase, but because that was the way thought was
going.” [H.G.Wells] [Quoted from mega.nu]
“Readers will learn that the very term "liberal
fascism" came from the pen of H.G. Wells, the famed
socialist author who delivered a speech at Oxford University
in 1932 that included hosannas to both Stalin's Russia
and Hitler's Germany. "I am asking," Wells
told the students, "for a Liberal Fascisti, for
enlightened Nazis." Democracy, he argued, had to
be replaced with new forms of government that would
save mankind, producing a "'Phoenix Rebirth' of
liberalism" that would be called "Liberal
Fascism." Like the activism, experimentation, and
discipline that made the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany
new dynamic societies, the West too could reach such
a plateau by adopting the new soft fascism that suited
it best.” [Quoted from eddriscoll.com]
The Fabian Society
was founded in 1884 in London as an offshoot of a society
founded in 1883 called The Fellowship of the New Life.
The Fabian Society founded the London School of Economics
in 1895. In 1900, the Fabian Society was one of the
organizations which formed the Labour Representation
Committee, which became the Labour Party in 1906. [Quoted

Why would Brown the Clown allow the
broadcast of criticism?
Did socialist Stalin allow criticism?
Did socialist Hitler
Did socialist Saddam Hussein allow criticism?
Does socialist Mugabe allow criticism?
Did socialist Mao allow criticism?
Does socialist Kim Jong Il allow criticism?
The Clown is a s-t-r-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-n-g
why should the socialist Clown allow criticism?
Do you want Britain to be a weak country
with a weak leader?
Do you want world leader Clown to be seen around the world
for what he is?
Obviously you have no patriotism,
and you may well be a racist!

- it must be the great depression again
We’re all do-o-o-o-o-o-m-e -ddddddd.
I continue to question the claims that
this is any more than a short depression sparked by a
banking clag-up, though short rebounds are not unknown
in a depression.
Meanwhile, the standard approach of
‘inflate your way out’ by central banks seems
to be gaining traction.
Then comes the headache. Over 20% inflation
and growing, already in the UK. How to limit the Brown
inflation without tipping back into recession again.
We have a very great deal for which
to thank our great leader, banisher of boom and bust,
saviour of the known universe, fearmonger general, unelected
by popular acclaim, cowardly evader of elections, destroyer
of businesses, spendthrift almighty...
and many other worthy titles.
Brown the Clown is debauching the British
currency at (probably) unprecedented rates. that will
undermine pensions, government wages (among others).
What will inflation do?
It will cut a swathe through the (alleged) government
It will move people into higher tax brackets if they
receive any wage rises to compensate for the inflation.
Any savings will be sliced, and those loaning money
will not receive the returns contracted.
It will send interest rates much higher over time.
It will undermine the trust on which all business
dealing are founded.
It is remiss not to realise the vast
destruction that is caused by government inflation.
“Countries that buy Chinese goods should be held responsible
for the carbon dioxide emitted by the factories that make them in any

less for power and more for people. A lesson from Brazil.

Charles Moore, in the linked article, is foolishly trying
to equate the problems in Ireland with the islamist problem.
Virtually all the oppression and mayhem of Islam is
by and within Islamic states, and committed by people raised to those
‘cultures’. The oppression in Northern Ireland was by the
Islamism is rooted in a bunch of backward failed states.
In Ireland, there was no such problem.
The oil fields developed in the Middle East were developed
by Westerners, and the local population was given much potential benefit.
Instead, they constantly squandered the wealth and repeatedly broken any
agreements. The West and the modern world are, in the meanwhile, highly
dependent on those resources. Even the future of those backward societies
is dependent on the uses to which the West puts those resources. Only
a complete fool who has lost all sense of reality allows children to make
the rules over serious issues.
That behaviour persists to this day, to the extent
that the West allows vast numbers from the region to settle in the West,
and even tolerates regular attacks and attempts to introduce backward
nonsense into the West.
While in the Middle East, dictators continue to run
backward, intolerant and murderous regimes, to the extent that includes
the imprisoning Westerners for trivia.
“....Because of the history of violence in Irish nationalism,
the IRA could always claim a certain authenticity....”
The British state claims authenticity and backs it
Tolerance of Islamism is rank idiocy. There is no equivalence.
The societies in the Middle East remain in the middle ages. They either
learn to join the modern world, or they will meet the fate of other backward
societies. That the West is so tolerant of those societies is a considerable
compliment to the humanism of the West, but it can be taken far too far.
“Brown wanted to avoid the collapse of HBOS because it could
have taken him down with it. And Sir Victor can only have wanted to
be helpful and become, in the process, a titan of finance. Protestations
about the public interest are hokum.”
“Brown was central to the original takeover deal in the autumn.
He was fighting to stay in Number 10 and faced a by-election in Glenrothes,
his own backyard. With many HBOS jobs at risk locally, he could not
afford the bank's collapse; it might have handed victory to the SNP
and heralded his removal as Labour leader. The "rescue" of
HBOS saved the PM last autumn, but at an extraordinary price to the
rest of us.
“In their haste to agree, Sir Victor and Eric Daniels, his chain-smoking
chief executive, did not have time to do due diligence. Call me old-fashioned
but, given the resulting losses of the merged bank, which land with
the taxpayer, shouldn't this pair be fired? This being contemporary
Britain, Sir Victor appears unsackable because the majority shareholder
who could dispense with him is the man who was in on the original deal:

judge of the juvenile court, Michael Conahan, pleaded guilty to having
accepted $2.6m (£1.8m) from the co-owner and builder of a private
detention centre where children aged from 10 to 17 were locked up.
“The cases of up to 2,000 children put into custody by Ciavarella
over the past seven years - including that of Transue - are now being

Context: The Bank of England [BOE] has lowered the interest rate to 0.5%,
the lowest level in the Bank’s 315-year history. Further, they have
printed (sorry, injected into the British economy) seventy-five billion
The BOE is constantly expanding the money supply.
This is not a new action, only this time the size is greater.
Inflation will not put interest rates down as the
BOE claim. Interest rates will increase to offset the lowering value
Interest rates are lowered to ½%. Just see
if you can get that rate! The banks will charge you plenty more, thus
increasing profits as part of bailing themselves out of bankruptcy.
Your savings/pensions/wages will all be eroded heavily.
“Sarkozy flew 324,595 kilometres (201,600 miles) and produced
7,100 tonnes in CO2 emissions, using a more fuel-efficient plane than
the two other heads of government, [Terra
Eco magazine] said.
“Britain's prime minister produced the
most carbon dioxide of the three, travelling 157,962 kilometres by plane
and train and generating 8,429 tonnes of CO2 emissions, it said.
“Chancellor Merkel, who made more than half her official trips
within Germany last year, travelled 174,440 kilometres and emitted 7,395
tonnes of CO2, the magazine said.”
The clown really peally cares. He has said so. Interminably!
Note that Downing Street refused
to specify what type of aircraft Brown uses, for “security reasons”.
Thus, Terra Eco made estimates based on informatiion provided by journalists
and aviation experts that Gordon Brown usually flies on Boeing 747, 757
and 777 airliners. Terra Eco estimated an average of CO2 emissions
from three models of B747, two models of B757and three models of B777
to establish Brown’s ecological bill.
According to his cabinet, Brown takes the Eurostar “as much as
possible”. So Terra Eco included eleven trips London-Paris and London-Brussels,
going through the Channel tunnel.
