On one of my recent Election posts some one left a comment asking me what my answer was, well that’s a question? Is it about answers or solutions? Here’s a couple of thoughts
Balancing the Individual with the Collective. Not so much the end of capitalism, more a reduction in it. Take stock! The shop is overstocked. We can’t go back, but instead of forwards how about going sideways. I don’t wanna piss on anyone’s parade, but it’s nearly
Patriotic flag waving, mass euphoria, time again….The world cup. The game starts here. New TV’s to watch the matches on. A need or a want? Or just an excuse!
The only game being played in June is the money game. From South Africa’s slums and corruption to global mass consumption, players ‘worth’ millions to the people cracking open another can of cheap supermarket lager and sticking another sausage on the barbeque in their patio decked garden as England miss another penalty
I should be positive about England’s chances, after all they’re gonna be wearing the same red colour strip as the team that won in 1966 did. If England do/did win it’ll be interesting to see how this sporting triumph and national euphoria will be co-opted and manipulated by the media and politicians for their own ends, especially as it’ll be right at the beginning of the ‘historic’ ConLibCo’s first term in government. Their first step to their Big Society; uniting the nation in triumph! “If the kids are united, they will never be divided” unless that unity is organic, there’s always gonna be someone in control of it all, ie the politicians and the media. If things don’t work out in South Africa there’s always the London Olympics in 2012, talking of which; Have you seen the two mascots? What a load of bollocks! I mean one even looks like a knob, with a couple of arms. I expect we’ll be seeing a lot of these fuckers over the next couple of years as they are used to engineer national pride and unity. Bring on the cheap booze and prescription pills to numb the pain of the people and keep 'em under control.
