AUSTERITY IS NECESSARY TO ELIMINATE THE DEFICIT

 

This is NOT TRUE.

Austerity is just a mechanism to move money back from the poorest many back to the richest few. The wealthy elite have a heritage that spans many generations across the centuries. They truly believe that they have an entitlement based on the view that they are 'better' than everyone else. This sense of entitlement is taught through a process of indoctrination at private schools including Eton. The messages are reinforced by hereditary titles and peerages and a strict process of further and higher education at specially selected colleges within the top universities. They nearly always study PPE (Philosophy, Politics and Economics). This process teaches them the tricks of the political trade and enables them to manipulate the minds of the voters into accepting the messages that they deliver through the media.

 

Q.  What can we do about it?

A.  Just slow down for a second. Think about each message you are getting through your newspapers and televisions. Question everything. Never just accept a news story. Think about why that story might be being told. Don't be a sucker. Take back control of your mind and your life.

 

 

WE HAVE A FREE PRESS

 

This is NOT TRUE.

 

The press is mainly owned and operated by a wealthy elite.

 

Rupert Murdoch owns 27.9%

Lord Rothermere owns 27.8%

Alexander & Evgeny Lebedev owns 10.1%

Richard Desmond 9.2%

David & Frederick Barclay 5.1%

 

These five owners control over 80% of the printed media in the UK. They have one thing in common. They are all multi-billionaires.

They set news agendas and alter the mood of the population. The psychology they use is subtle and their methods cause us to question our relationships with our fellow men and women.

They create fear and make us mistrust each other. They nominate social and ethnic groups to be demonised. Media stories are reported in such a way as to make sure that we keep looking sideways instead of seeing what is coming from above.

They shift the focus away from their greedy self serving agenda and divide us at a time when we should be united.

 

Q.  What can we do about it?

A.  For a start, don't buy into it and don't buy it. They are only interested in one thing. MONEY. So don't give them yours and discourage others from giving them theirs.

WE LIVE IN A DEMOCRACY

 

This is NOT TRUE.

 

Our democratic process and electoral system is not fit for purpose. The first past the post system is a rigged game. The outcome will always be a ruling class elected by a minority of voters.

This will never represent the wishes and aspirations of the people adequately. The current system will always return a group of self serving 'professional' politicians who's lives are totally disconnected with our own lives.

True proportional representation can be the only democratic solution.

 

Q.  What can we do about it?

A.  Lobby (by email, letter or public meeting) your local candidates and ask them to support PR. Vote for a candidate in your constituency that supports PR. We might end up with a lot of unsuitable MPs in the short term (nothing new there then) but it is the only realistic way that PR can ever become a reality in the future.

 

 

SPENDING CUTS ARE NECESSARY

 

This is NOT TRUE.

 

Spending cuts are harmful to the economy and the physical and mental wellbeing of the country and its people.

1.  When jobs or wages or hours are cut, the economy suffers. The benefits bill rises. The income to the treasury falls due to lower receipts from income tax, national insurance, VAT, fuel tax, council tax and all of the other taxes that the government takes when we spend our wages on goods and services.

2.  When people are less active because of a lack of employment opportunities, obesity rates rise, health deteriorates and mental health issues soar. These massive human and economic costs fall on the government and the remaining tax payers.

3.  Spending cuts are just a part of the race to the bottom. The ruling class want to return to a world where the workers have no rights and are willing to beg for some toil on a daily basis.

Look around and see the successful countries. They all have high wages and high taxes that pay for high quality public services.

 

 

BRANDS ARE COOL

 

This is NOT TRUE.

 

Brands are seen as a way of belonging to a tribe or a fashion trend or a particular culture. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Brands or branding has been used to identify ownership. Cattle are branded and the logos used are 'unique' to the owner of the livestock.

Modern branding is a marketing trick that exists for a number of reasons.

1.  To sell products for a much higher price than the intrinsic value of the materials used to produce them and the labour required to make the. It is no coincidence that the most successful brands belong to the largest corporations.

2.  To identify the wearer to the establishment. People are judged and bullied because of the brands they buy.

3.  Most importantly, wearing the brands confirm to the corporations exactly who they own. The wearer is now the livestock and the consumer is willingly owned and enslaved.

 

Q.  What can we do about it?

A.  Take back control.  Don't waste your money on brands. Think about being an individual.  Buy local.  Buy less and buy well.  Buy designer, a real designer, a real live human designer.  Think about the local trader trying to make a living for himself and his family against all the odds and struggling with ludicrous rents and taxes.

 

 

THE WORLD IS OVERPOPULATED

 

This is NOT TRUE.

 

The world does have a large population but there is also a lot of space.  The rich and the elite would like you to think that there are too many people.  This is just a selfish way to gain extra space for themselves.  The problem is really about equality.

The land mass (not including Antarctica) is about 52 million square miles. The population is 7.2 billion. That gives a global density of 140 people per square mile.

The Netherlands has a population density of about 1050 per square mile and that does not seem to crowded.

Most population studies agree that the population is levelling off and the peak will be less than 10 billion. This is due to longevity limits being reached and the introduction of contraception and family planning measures being introduced in countries with historically high birth rates.

 

BENEFIT FRAUD IS A MASSIVE PROBLEM

 

This is NOT TRUE.

 

Nobody really wants to see benefit fraud even though some people's circumstances may genuinely  be more difficult than the state is prepared to acknowledge.

However in relative terms, benefit fraud is pretty insignificant compared to other areas of theft or government spending.

Here are a few numbers to illustrate my point :

 

Benefit fraud costs us about 1.5 billion per year  (About 23 per person per year)   SOURCE

Tax fraud (including tax avoidance and tax evasion) costs 120 billion per year  (About 1,846 per person per year)   SOURCE

The Trident nuclear submarine program costs 2.5 billion per year  (About 39 per person per year)

 

Q.  What can we do about it?

A.  The government consistently fails to recover the taxes due from big business and large corporations who seem to think that they are above the law.  They seem to have no interest in addressing this problem and prefer to pass these costs on to the individual tax payer in the form of higher taxes and austerity measures.  It is up to us all to persuade these companies to pay what they owe.  The best way to do this is for us to hit them where it hurts.  We can do this by not buying from companies who persistently evade or avoid tax.

GREECE  DOES  NOT  DESERVE  HELP

 

This is NOT TRUE.

 

Undoubtedly, the Greek economy is in trouble.  However, the scale of its problems have been grossly exaggerated and the country and its people are now being held hostage by a powerful group of economic technocrats.

The current estimate is that Greece needs a bailout of around $370 billion.

Have a look at the following bailouts the banks received from us, the tax payer.  They had no problem getting hold of the money.  In fact, if you remember, there was no public discussion.  A few senior British, EU and American politicians got together, arranged the bailouts, transferred the money then told the public via the news the following morning (8 October 2008).

 

BAILOUT COSTS

Citigroup $2,513 billion

Morgan Stanley - $2,041 billion

Merrill Lynch $1,949 billion

Bank of America $1,344 billion

Barclays PLC $868 billion

Bear Sterns $853 billion

Goldman Sachs $814 billion

Royal Bank of Scotland $541 billion

JP Morgan Chase $391 billion

Deutche Bank - $354 billion

Credit Suisse - $262 billion

Lehman Brothers - $183 billion (straight down the pan)

Bank of Scotland $181 billion

etc... etc... etc...

Another case of one rule for the rich, another for the rest of us.
