As work and twitter take more and more of my time, and this blog descends into a personal toilet wall for Ron Broxted (no, I still have no idea what it is about, nor wish to), perhaps it's time to look at what has been a dramatic year.

Firstly, you lot got a man out of prison. You told the state that it was unjust and you rectified the situation. You freed Nick Hogan. Congratulate yourselves, you deserve it. If nothing else, you touched a life in the finest way possible, with liberty

Then we had the General Election and you funded my campaign to place myself amongst the Cambridge pigeons that would rule us. You made electoral history by sponsoring the first totally anonymous candidate for Parliament. No one knew who I was, where I lived or what I looked like. We proved a point that the system is broken. We destroyed the campaign of Daniel Zeichner (Lab), and I hope you had as much fun as I did ridiculing those who would enslave us.

We have corrupt politicians in court, riots on the streets caused by Politicians lying to the electorate, we've had Politicians thrown out of their seats for lying and a corrupt authoritarian Government thrown out of office (no, I refuse to use the word "power")

The change of rulers has brought nothing new. We are still taxed to the point of riot, we are still herded like sheep by the Slavemaster, our lives monitored, controlled, measure, censored and indexed by the all powerful State, as if we were the property of it, instead of the owners.

The lobbyists and Unions, along with corporations still dictate where more than half the contents of your wallets will go, the great and the good still reward themselves with the fruit of your labours, your risks, taken by force under threat of violence. You are still born a "suspect"

It isn't going to change until we change, and we won't. This year has shown that I will not change a damn thing through this blog, and as a stubborn bastard refusing to change myself to fit the "great scheme", my course of action is to retreat further and further from "interference", reliance and governance.

Most of my fellow citizens are happy to count the blessings of X Factor, easy credit and a "normal" life, safe in the knowledge that Politicians will save them from themselves. The Welfare state will continue to provide the warm comfort straight jacket so beloved by the lazy and feckless, our power as citizens will continue to vanish and those who pull the strings will continue to gain wealth taken from us.

But we made 2010 just that little bit harder for the 650. We are watching them, watching us and now every move they make will be witnessed, measured, monitored and reported. And they HATE it.

Blogging will be much quieter in 2011. Probably. 4 years until off grid.....

To be governed is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, checked, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right nor the wisdom nor the virtue to do so.

To be governed is to be at every operation, at every transaction noted, registered, counted, taxed, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, prevented, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished. It is, under pretext of public utility, and in the name of the general interest, to be placed under contribution, drilled, fleeced, exploited, monopolized, extorted from, squeezed, hoaxed, robbed; then, at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, vilified, harassed, hunted down, abused, clubbed, disarmed, bound, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed; and to crown all, mocked, ridiculed, derided, outraged, dishonoured.

That is government; that is it's justice; that is its morality.
