@OH: >"ACTION BY GOVERNMENTS"

Look, if you couldn't even be bothered to read your adorable little list, you probably shouldn't expect anyone else to use it as a template for revolution.

electro-kevin said...

There is a party that should be representing you right now. They aren't an they haven't been for a long while.

This is why you have no voice and these pointless games of yours will make no difference but to get you labled as a nutter and diminished our legitimate cause.

Don't vote Tory. Tell the Tories that you won't be voting Tory. Tell them WHY you won't be voting Tory. Tell everyone else to do the same.

Simple.

Jess The Dog said...

This is a good list and an interesting slant to the agenda of disobedience and rejection.

There are potential linkages to be made between those of us who can perhaps be styled "refuseniks" and wider academia.

There is a wide academic tradition embracing peace studies, citizen participation, philosophy, culture and gender studuesm political theory (Marxism) and social policy. This may have fallen by the wayside as "media studies" and "political studies" have advanced, and as the heyday of the 1970s has passed. Some of this is wrapped up in the revolutionary heritage that our rulers once claimed as their own.

Maybe the resistance of the blogosphere (and others) against the "electoral dictatorship" is worthy of academic partnership?

Professor Old Holborn, anyone?

Might even get some state funding for the "resistance"....

Self-exposure of what exactly? To which elements? Earth, air, water, fire?

Sounds positively lewd if you ask me. Or at the very least rather unpleasant...

Boxing Day - go to your local MP's home and lawfully harass them.
Stuff like singing God-awful Christmas carols out of tune or leaving large amounts of rotten treats for them. That kind of stuff.

And if that don't work, go all Muslim-mad-bomber on their collective arses'.

Blair cunt said...

I think you'll find that the Blair Fascism Project has outlawed many of those options. Many others could have you up for harrassment of our delicate public officials.

The only real way out of all this is for the electorate to vote for non-alligned candidates at the next election; basically anything outside Tory, Labour and Lib Dem.

That's the only way out. A quick return to a citizen parliament.

pronse said...

Its too late. They are all the same. The suggestion of voting anyone but the 3 is the best bet, but in truth it will still result in the 3 getting back, because the sheeple cannot do the math. Their idiot boxes and fishwrapper comics show only the views of the 3, and in the absence of a huge amount of advertising spending the message you are trying to give will not get across. Which member of the oligarchy ( or foreign power ) will be putting up the payolla for the posters?

Emigrate if you can. We are heading for Hell fast here. Oh for a grocers daughter from Grantham now.

Pre-print up political messages, slogans and arguments running contrary to the fascist-state onto sticky back paper.

Go to your local public library on a clandestine mission.

Whilst browsing through appropriate racks of pro-fascist pro-statist books inconspiciously and at random apply the pre-printed anti-statist anti-fascist political messages into said books in a way that future pro-statist pro-fascist readers hoping to encounter state-sponsored propaganda by way of said books to prop up their enthusiastic support for the fascist state are wisened up to the fact that many would in fact oppose the minority of fascists currently propped up into power.

Go home, smoke a fag, drink a pint, eat lard and laugh your ass off for having done thrown a monkey-wrench into the state sponsored fascist apparatus.

The following day, get up and do it again.

I've had another idea (not the only thing I'm having either, poxy kebabs).

When the PPC's come knocking, kidnap them on the stop and put them in the dungeon. If you haven't a dungeon, the cupboard under the stairs would be suffice.

Of course, we must let them out, but only after the election. We need to be sure.

I'd read Capt'n Ranty's list over at his blog & thought it made a lot of sense.
Some actions will suit some people, others will suit other people - each to their own. At least the Capt'n has tried to come up with ways that we can each throw a spanner into the collective LibLabCon conspiracy to sell us all off to the EU. Go along that path - like lambs to slaughter - if tht's your preference. Personally, I shall be kicking & screaming the whole way. And if enough of us do that, the train may be derailed.

Whenever a revolution takes place the first aim is to take over the broadcast media.

The Project is succeeding because they control broadcast media.

The present day broadcast media is the most powerful mind-bending power in the history of Humanity.

The broadcasters are our enemy.

The main asset of The Project is their control of the broadcast media - and it is therefore also their achilles heel.

Every effort should be targeted at destroying the power of the broadcast media, including of course in particular the BBC news and current affairs department.

Destroy the power of the broadcast media to promote The Project and even now the Project will die.

You took the words right off my keyboard. Growing support for the BNP sends a shiver down their yellow spines. Look at the way UKIP have launched a "big hitter" to dilute Griffin's support in Barking. Marge Hodge must be overjoyed that the establishment's yapping dog (AKA UKIP) is helping save her worthless skin.

If ukip decide to do that,they will have shown their hand,they would be no better than the commie greens or the liblabcons.They'd be better off putting all their energry into taking Bercow's seat,there are plenty of seats for them to have a go at.

Anyone fancy doing a great big fuck off sign / poster / mural on a field beside the M25 or another prominent place? I've got the gear to project/transfer anything you can design onto the ground at any scale and level of detail. A nice sharp message or image would be seen by thousands every day. Might be an idea for closer to the election.

All it needs is a few willing people with some paint, an acquiescent farmer and a good design. Perhaps a suitable crop circle type design if it's in the summer.

State of the Nation said...

Excuse me,but it's not the 646 you have to work on,but the millions of voters. The 646 are powerless if you can convince the majority of the populace of their vulnerabilty.
The populace is ready for a change,but no credible alternative is visible. UKIP are seen as a one trick pony,and the BNP are too nasty for most tolerant Brits. Only the coming together of opponents to the status quo can mobilise enough momentum to upset the applecart.This means compromise and settling for lesser goals for each individual,but the chance to change government for the interests of the many instead of the few requires pragmatism.
Work on forming an alliance for the general interest instead of splintering into small shards.

Why are all the people moaning over the economy? If you want to blame someone for the situation, blame Carter, Clinton and Team Obama. Clinton abolished the redlining, thus thousands of bad loans were handed out in the US, and then the system crashed (thanks to Clinton's "genius" the US repeated the exact same mistakes that destroyed Japan's bubble economy in the 90s, but do politicians ever learn? Nope, they don't.)

Barney Franks said that everything was in order with Fannie and Freddie and a few weeks later both almost collapsed. Bush had tried to reform both several times but the Democrats always blocked him.

Thank the politicians for the crash, since they meddled in the economy. Thank the media for hyping it. Because, guess what, the "financial crisis" isn't so bad. It only turned worse because dipshit politicians started to play around in it.

Thank Obama for destroying one trillion dollars and for pushing the US to 10% unemployment.

And, folks, history proves without a doubt that there is only one economic system that works: capitalism. Everything else always fails.

People whine about how much money managers make. But nobody ever mentions how much money asshats like Gordon Brown destroy every day.

As for the strike... Please... stop the commie crap. If you don't want capitalism move to North Korea.

Not that it'd change anything on the long run. Production in the EU is getting more and more expensive for the companies. Guess what'll happen when people start striking for no good reason. Companies will move away and as a result you'll have more unemployment. No, there's no good reason for striking in privately owned companies. It's those companies that keep the economy up, not the government.

You want the state to give in? Go after the government and its goons.

Copenhagen climate conference
Climate change denier Nick Griffin to represent EU at Copenhagen
BNP leader who believes climate change activists are 'cranks' will be member of European parliament's delegation
Nick Griffin, the leader of the British National party, is to represent the European parliament at the UN climate change conference in Copenhagen, which opens next week.
Last night politicians and scientists reacted furiously to news that the far-right politician and climate change denier should be attending the summit on behalf of the EU.
Griffin, who was elected to the European parliament in June, confirmed last night that he would attend as the representative of the parliament's environmental committee. World leaders, including Barack Obama and Gordon Brown, are hoping to forge a new global agreement to curtail greenhouse gas emissions.
Without such a deal, scientists warn that world temperatures will increase by more than 2C by the end of the century, triggering ice cap melting, sea-level rises, widespread flooding, the spread of deserts and devastating storms.
In a speech in the parliament last week, Griffin denounced those who warn of the consequences of climate change as "cranks". He said they had reached "an Orwellian consensus" that was "based not on scientific agreement, but on bullying, censorship and fraudulent statistics".
"The anti-western intellectual cranks of the left suffered a collective breakdown when communism collapsed. Climate change is their new theology… But the heretics will have a voice in Copenhagen and the truth will out. Climate change is being used to impose an anti-human utopia as deadly as anything conceived by Stalin or Mao."

If one can't take over the broadcast stations by force and can't jam them, one can deface the print media, where-ever morning newspapers sit from the wee hours inside coin-drop boxes, labels relaying any truth not being said in the MSM or referencing to a list of websites can be hurriedly stuck on the front page of the whole stack in the matter of a minute in the cover of dark before moving around the corner to the next one. Labels can similarly be nonchalantly applied in doors, windows, bulletin boards, where-ever they might be seen.

In Russia immediately following the Bolshevik revolution, small groups nabbed here and there were shot on site and their bodies permanently disappeared for anti-authoritarian activities, but it hasn't gotten to that extreme (yet) - so may still be some time for political theatrics and clandestine operations as this list gives many fine examples.

It would require organization without the use of incriminating emails and telephone calls since they cannot trace and eavesdrop on the conversations and plotting done face to face.

UKIP need their heads seen to for saving that worthless slag Hodge - she of the paedophile ring connections while Council leader. So that's them off the voting list.
Limp Dems have been wittering that they might - just might - consider another LibLab pact - that plus their traitorous action over the EU Referendum clears them out of the ring.
Green's? Eco-Fascists so that's another resounding 'No'.
Cons? Not after CMD's statement on an EU Referendum - also our local Con led Council are currently shitting in the face of local voters.
So it's either stay at home or vote for Nick Griffin & the BNP. As the BNP are strongly in the Climate Change Deniers camp I think they're the ones for my vote.
Then there's Labour - I'd rather poke sharp pins into my eyeballs than vote Labour....
