Right Said Fred's Twitter Account!

Look at some of these tweets.
In the UK these guys are household names. They're wonderfully off message. Although I may not agree with them, it's great to see.


The sheer volume of negative press that has been accrued by The Establishment over the last two or three years is taking its toll.

That said the drummer from The Corrs has lived on planet conspiracy for ages now. His views are significantly more extreme than our deeply dippy hit-makers:

From Wikipedia:
Corr is a member of the 9/11 Truth Movement and operates a website where he writes about the New World Order, including the notion that 11 September, 2001, was an inside job. Following the death of Osama bin Laden in May 2011, Corr maintained that bin Laden had actually died 10 years earlier in 2001.

Unfortunately his website is currently down. Maybe the Illuminati have got him?

Free speech is an absolute, selective enforcement is an early sign of tyranny.

The free speech debate begins to really kick off. If there is to be an all powerful global Government, perhaps it will have to contend with global journalism.





 "A stage of global progress" - the article argues. Alike to the global awakening that many people are describing. An article about which I wrote for Disinfo a few years ago: here.

Speaking of which, Disinfo recently carried an excellent piece: "Benign Intent: Tools of Corporate Media Propaganda"

Who is responsible for terrorism?

Who is responsible for terrorism? Terrorists. What, are you an idiot? It's an obvious trick question. Perhaps I'm being mean, this trick question has stumped media pundits and opinionators for many years but the answer really is that simple.

The man in this picture who is about to hack a journalist's head off, he is responsible for what he does. Not society. Not some cartoons. Not Fox News. Not The Daily Mail. Not even Tony Blair and his war in Iraq or a magic book from the middle ages. Not you. Not me. Not anyone else. Him. He's responsible.

I remember laughing at the pathetic excuse used by Nazi war criminals when told about it in our history lessons. They were "just following orders". I'd have been in secondary school at this point. It seemed absurd to me that anyone could claim that as a defence. "Why did you steal chocolate from the corner shop?" asked my parents. "The bigger boys told me to do it", was a useless excuse. My parents were too clever: "if 'the bigger boys' told you to jump off a cliff, would you?". Uh, I guess not.

Personal responsibility is the bedrock of adulthood. If we lived in a society of adults, in control of their lives, it would not need explaining.Who is to blame for suicide? The person killing themselves.Who is responsible for crime? Criminals.Who is responsible for you and your life? You are. Currently we do not live in such a society. Instead we live in country where childish lies are pushed to us by sinister people who want to control everyone.

This is because were people to universally understand, admire and practice the concept of personal responsibility we'd be very difficult to control. None of us would look blankly on and shrug while doing the wrong thing on behalf of someone else. Those who want to control you prefer you to be just following orders. A nation with a deep sense of personal responsibility would be less easily led.

That's why the notion of personal responsibility is so rarely advocated by your so-called leaders. That's also why I think you have a responsibility to preach it.
Previously in the UK our version of the Christian religion carried a version of personal responsibility. It didn't matter what excuses you had up your sleeve, God was going to hold you to account after your life. In practice this would, on occasion, make the population difficult to manage. The pacifists in World War One, largely inspired by Jesus's non-violent teachings, are a classic example.


The Deserter by Boardman Robinson, 1916

This might explain why the belief system pushed by the establishment these days is "rationalism". Currently we lack a fully developed understanding of human consciousness. Enthusiastic rationalists often ignore this and assume people to be like complex computers, programmed by our past experiences and custom designed by our genetic make up. In this world view our past dictates our future.

"You are not responsible," goes the argument, "your tough upbringing and bad parents are". This is great news for those who wish to lead you. It swiftly abolishes the notion of 'free will' and allows all sorts of people to assume responsibility from others.

However, reality seems to have a different point of view. People are not nearly as rational as our leaders would like us to think. Perhaps this is why collectively we are not easy to control and no matter how many times the notion of individual responsibility is stamped upon it keeps re-emerging in different forms. I think this is because personal responsibility is a universal fact of the human experience. In real life, if the bigger boys tell you to jump off a cliff, reality makes you responsible for that decision.

So too, if you hack a journalist's head off, or shoot a bunch of cartoonists, you're the one who is responsible for that. Not your religion, your mates, your tough upbringing, The West or anything else. You. You did it.

I wrote a virtually identical article last year. I am going to keep writing it until everyone in the world has read it. Please help me by sharing it as far and wide as you can...
