"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Ugly Inside & Out

Courtsy of the DT here's another hate-filled face from yesterday's protests. I wonder how she feels today.

You have to laugh though. As many people have pointed out these 'anarchists' can't seem to see the irony in calling for no government while also calling for no cuts in the public sector and the benefits bill. I suppose many of them have been to university and have been subjected to years of Labour's indoctrination  education system, which would explain a lot.

  1. This picture shows the manifestation of Labour nastiness and unappealing doctrine. A cnut in many ways of this misspelling.

  4. Can I just point out that Labour abandoned working class politics some years ago and embraced the Thatcherite dogma of open markets, privatization, and cuts to social programmes. Furthermore, anarchists don't call for "no government" but, like the Libertarians and Freemen on the Land, less government and from the bottom up rather than the top down.

    However, I don't know what this person hoped to achieve by this display of wanton violence other than a more aggressive police response to legal protest in the future. But we should remember that, historically, many instances of "anarchist" aggression were in fact false flag actions but the security forces in an attempt to discredit alternative political views and justify brutal police action against lawful protest and dissent.

  6. The Unions are happy to be complicit in the deception too, OR. I saw this early at the ASI blog, you might like it:
    youtube which tells us all we need to know about their approach.

    Sig, nice to see you here. I'm not sure even we call them bobbies any more but it's a fact that the overwhelming majority of British people don't want our police force armed or kicking people. Some of them policing these marches aren't tolerant at all and do their fair share of beating but, having said that, the woman in the photo deserves all she gets. And I hope she does.

    McG! You're like the good angel sitting on my shoulder today :-) I didn't think I'd get away with such a lazy description of anarchy but given that most of the self-styled anarchists taking part yesterday don't seem to know or care what it means as a political doctrine I thought I'd skip over it.

    I think it's come to mean either/or - either no political structure, no rulers, or, more recently, a weaker, more libertarian form giving small or minimal governance. To go any further and equate anarchy with libertarianism is dangerous - most people have enough probs with the lib/lab/con con.

    I'm away for a cup of tea and to read your link now - intrigued.

  7. Okay McG - I need more than a cup of tea for Chomsky and it's just past the witching hour so I'll watch it leisurely and get back to you.

  8. At least the 'anarchist' hijacking of the TUC march lead to more interesting photos than Brenda from Accounts waving a placard and the whole thing amusingly diverted attention from "Earth Hour" during which they would be guzzling fuel on their journey home.

  9. Hi Banned, so you know Fat Brenda from Accounts too! Even my pro-AGW theory son (*sigh*) didn't bother turning out the lights, neither did he ask why I turned them all on.

    @ McG - well, the only thing I agreed with Chomsky about was that the meaning of words has been changed, something I'm always banging on about.

    In my original post above I did put 'anarchists' in quotes to imply that they were self-styled or media-styled as such. Chomsky's name was painted on walls by protesters on Sat but I doubt he'd have approved of their actions. Plus he's the darling philospher of the Left so I admit I find it hard to sit through more than 15mins of his thoughts at a time. I do agree with him that the thoughts and ideals of the likes of Adam Smith have also been subverted though and I also go back to my point that Left/Right have lost their meaning except in economic terms, big state/small state.

    It's getting too deep for me - deep down I'm really superficial :-)

  10. I agree GV - the LEFT/RIGHT paradigm has lost all meaning and has become a lazy way for journalists to indicate disapproval. I also agree with Chomsky that US style "Libertarianism" is an abdication of power to the tyranny of transnational capital.

  11. Yes, US concept of libertarianism different to ours, possibly more akin to corporate capitalism/corporatism. When people talk of 'free market capitalism' they imagine anarchic capitalism but that's not it at all. Or, at least, Capitalism has always been regulated - it's the degree and quality of regulation that counts. Lately (past decade or so) I've seen no evidence of effective regulation - more like US libertarianism concept instead.

    Thanks. If you come across any more Chomsky footage where he isn't actually droning on about AGW or the evils of capitalism, let me know :-)
