Why Anarchy Is Needed 1

Firstly, thanks to the kind peeps that responded to my last post. It's gratifying to know people are interested in what I have to say, even though there are far more informed people out there than myself. All support is muchly appreciate.

So, I came across this the other day:

A serving firefighter, London fire Brigade:
On Friday I went to see my local MP, Crispin Blunt to ask why he thought it appropriate to continue to vote for a 1% pay rise for Public sector workers. He explained to me what austerity meant and why we all had to do our bit. I asked him how he was doing his bit by claiming over £20,000 a year for 5 years on a second home which proved to be his main home given his kids lived there and they went to school round the corner. How did claiming over 2k for airbricks and another few thousand for fireplace repairs was contributing to saving the country money? He seemed at a loss how to explain the 5k he claimed for DFS furniture. He sold the second house, bought a bigger house and claimed the 16k stamp duty thinking it’s acceptable to get those who are struggling to pay their own bills to pay his. He votes the way his party tell him to. Ironically he voted against several gay rights votes then left his wife to come to terms with his homosexuality! I asked how this demonstrates leadership to the people of Surrey? What message did his admittance of using legal highs send out to the youth of Reigate?
His answer was to say he wasn’t going to answer my question and he stood up, starting pointing at me and aggressively told me to leave. When I refused he got security call the police! How ironic, the very people he feels don’t deserve a decent wage he expects to save his hypocritical arse!
This really can't be a surprise to any of us. We know what these filth are like, and I doubt he's the first to call the cops on a constituent, or to evict a pleb for daring to question his betters.

What can we learn from this, aside from the obvious naked disdain our capitalist masters have for us. I wanted to point to the hierarchical relationship apparent here. This is why I prefer the anarchist approach. You could easily substitute socialism or even communism in the title of this piece - anything that opposes the class oppression of capitalism.

That class structure is plainly at work here: what people forget is that politicians are meant to be our employees. If anything, that relationship should be the other way around. The beleaguered fireman should be the one kicking out the corrupt Tory. But our society is so ass backward that it's the latter, in his state funded palace, who gets to feel legitimately affronted. It's not legitimate at all, of course.

Ideally there would be no hierarchy and no capitalist private property rights, which means no system to enforce it, which means no politicians.

Which means no Crispin Blunt.

Instead people would come together as the equals they would be if profit and power didn't get in the way. Issues that one has would be raised in front of the community, or those deemed responsible by the community to represent them in such cases - and if that representative proved derelict in his duty he could immediately be recalled.

Instead we have an upper class built on the stolen labour and land of the community who use their power to make laws, and their exclusive monopoly on force to maintain that relationship, to tell a good man to get stuffed.

We all know this is wrong, I wanted to try and explain why, because this is happening every day.

I Fucking Hate the Work Programme

That did not go well.
My legs were wobbly to begin with as I closed in on the church that passes for the office of the employment wing of the Salvation Army. My appointment was 3 to half past. I really did feel sick. Pretty early on, when he asked for the forms he gave me last time to fill in, I knew that what was arranged on the letter (a short interview with me bringing my CV and jobsearch) was actually going to be much longer. I also knew that, come half three when I had to leave to catch my bus back ten minutes later, I was going to have problems. 
Unfortunately, though more for me I fear, it never got that far; at 20 past he terminated the interview citing my apparent 'putting up barriers' as the reason not to continue. This was because I refused consent for him to keep my CV. I asked why he needed it and offered, three times, to show it to him (that's all), he said it was to apply for jobs on my behalf. The EEC's need this information.

U.N. and Them

What are my thoughts on this?

It's a humanitarian crisis. Is that a phrase we should only reserve for famines in Africa or force majeure? We seem to have a blind spot to these things when they are on our own doorstep - it couldn't happen here, could it?


Seven years of the most brutal selfish and greedy governance, not to mention the least competent, has brought us to the point where the United Nations are telling the Tories they are causing a 'human catastrophe' amongst the disabled and the sick. This is not the first time, and even that doesn't include their comments on the hated and spiteful (not to mention ineffectual) Bedroom Tax.

Do the Tories persist with these policies because they actually believe they are correct or even moral?

Or is it because they have no other way to appease the media attack dogs and/or the braying Shirefolk that delight in persecuting the poor as they do torturing foxes and badgers?

Is it both?

Into the Mirror

So tomorrow morning is my WCA. Needless to say I am not looking forward to it, and that would be an understatement. It's currently sitting in my mind, refusing to leave, cooking up a stultifying negativity. That's the thing with depression; it's a presence that, even if you manage to distract yourself for a time, it returns with hammer-like vengeance. That feeling alone is enough to make the problem of depression the horrible reality it is. Sucker punched by your own thoughts.

Logically - as if we live in a logical society - I should pass. My situation is unchanged from last year. However that is exactly why I won't pass. You might think it reasonable to simply report that fact, but the simplicity of doing so, the ease of process, is exactly why you can't. Instead I will be seen, likely by someone different, and asked the same questions; some of which will not be relevant but part of the deceptive nature of the process. For example, being asked 'how did you get…
