I call myself flyer, but I was sailing long before I was flying. As a young man, I sailed across oceans and around the world for possibly a hundred thousand miles, but certainly not far off. I’ve spent my life travelling and you could say that I’ve seen the world at many different levels.
I’ve seen extreme wealth and dire poverty; some people tell me I’ve seen too much. Some people in an effort to explain life look to their God, but I never have, I made a decision when I was very young not to worship sky Gods. Instead, I look for scientific or mathematical explanations to life and one of my favourites is Chaos Theory, a complex theory but I have a simple interpretation. According to Chaos Theory, we live in a world or universe that is finely balanced between order and chaos, to upset that balance can have unintended consequences elsewhere.
Chaos theory certainly applies to politics and economics and we see the results of this all the time. We’ve seen the Arab Spring turn into a nightmare, we’ve bombed the Middle East for twenty years, toppling dictators, only to have them replaced by far worse and we’ve seen a financial crisis that will soon come back to haunt us.
As a result of my beliefs, I go through life with the attitude that I’ll leave each to their own and as long as nobody bothers me I won’t bother them. Whether you’re a banker or a beggar, that’s OK with me as you’re all part of life’s balance and normal distribution, I’d prefer not to get involved.
Sometimes however, I feel that life gets too out of balance and something needs to be said. I was reading an article on Zero Hedge recently, entitled:
‘They’re Bringing Back Feudalism… And Nobody Seems To Notice.’
This article suggests that we’re all just Cash Cows for politicians to feed their debt addiction to central banks. I’d say the reality is much worse; when you look at the trade deals that are currently being signed in the world, the TPPA, TTIP etc. It is apparent that their main objective is to undermine national sovereignty, centralise power and give unprecedented rights to corporate bodies to do whatever they like, including bringing wages down to Third World levels. We won’t be just Cash Cows anymore we’ll be living in a human battery farm, in a Totalitarian Fascist world.
“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.”
John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton, first Baron Acton (1834–1902).
These trade deals remind me of the Common Market, that lead to the totally undemocratic European Union, so I’m not imagining things, we’ve seen it all before. We’ve watched the EU use debt as a weapon to undermine sovereignty and democracy all over Europe, causing untold misery in Southern Europe. Who would have believed a few years ago that in sunny Greece, where we all go for our holidays, we’d be seeing cancer patients dying in agony because the country couldn’t afford the drugs for their treatment.
The European Union was the prototype for the world that we’re now entering and it really doesn’t care how many people it hurts as long as it meets its power grabbing, anti-democratic and just plain evil objectives. When Angela Merkel says she needs an army of migrant workers, she means she needs an army of revenue raising units for her battery farm. The tragedy is, that these poor migrants are just being used as pawns in a very cynical and ruthless power game.
According to Chaos Theory, no political system can ever be perfect, because to bring about order there always has to be an element of chaos.
“Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed it has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.…”
(Winston Churchill House of Commons, 11 November 1947)
I’m not sure if Churchill was the original author of those words, but they’re no less relevant.
David Cameron and George Osborne would have you believe that we’ll face dire financial consequences if we leave the European Union: it’s a lie. Unfortunately, since the financial crisis, nothing has been fixed, trillions have been printed in Sterling, USD, Yen and Euros and still our economies are stalling as we try to prop up old and obsolete business models. I hate to say this, but we’re heading for hard times whether we leave the European Union or not: don’t believe the scare tactics. The European Union may be good for politicians and bankers, but it is a nightmare for ordinary citizens.
My view of the world may be harsh and mathematical, but it is realistic and it has taught me to be very wary of people selling utopian ideas, the world isn’t like that, it’s not an ideal place. The European Union was sold to us as just such a utopian idea, it’s a lie.
According to my Chaos Theory of life, there are times in life, when it’s not wise to rock the boat: June the 23rd is not one of those times.
On June 23rd you will have the chance to vote out of an undemocratic totalitarian nightmare!
Leaving won’t solve all of our problems but it will be a huge step in the right direction. Grab this opportunity with both hands! Our politicians had no right to give away our democracy.
