The Revolution Has Begun, The Enlightenment Re-Engaged: Or Has It?

Are things changing?

I recently returned from abroad to the Daily Telegraph proclaiming “A Very British Revolution”. The news that the corrupt MPs siphoning the British tax payers purse are, or may, be reprimanded is warming. However, I am not convinced.

The international mainstream media are in a viscious competition with independent and free internet-based media. Many of them have even been running “conspiracy type” stories to try and catch a slice of the internet pie. Only hits can justify the rates for their advertisers, one of their last standing sources of revenue. Rupert Murdoch, head of News Corporation, recently illustrated this as he vowed the end of the “free internet”.

Meanwhile, the American based television media are deploying decoys left right and centre to cover and dismiss topics the alternative media have made their well-rounded and respected reputation on.

Only recently British MPs were embroiled in attempts to raise their salaries, tax those (to the tune of 50%) that earn more than them, and ban public intrusion into the details of their expenses. Now they seem to be clammering over one another to accept, deny, or deflect responsibility for the atrociously arrogant and childish attempts at theft.

Meanwhile, however, the bankers go unpunished: their pensions unretrieved, even their bonuses paid.

In the US Barack Obama continues the pro-corporate Bush policies; in the UK the Tory leader David Cameron proposes a Tory leadership to heal the drastic wounds British democracy has sustained since 9/11/2001. Yet we all know he works for exactly the same people Gordon Brown does.

Things appear to be changing. But what is really happening is that the powers that be sense the real changes happening around them. There have been no riots, no protests, and yet they know power is slipping out of their hands, fast: they just have to look at numerous polls.

There is a massive crisis of faith in government and private sector leadership. There is a massive and growing awareness of the super-capitalist elite that truly govern our affairs. What’s more, it appears, there is now a massive effort of the instiutions of the old machine to feign change, to play the part of revolution. The snake is shedding its skin. But it remains to be seen whether anyone will not recognise the same cold reptile adorned in its new colours.

The old paradigm is compromising out of necessicity. In an effort to retain control and keep real change at bay it is shirking and shrugging off middle-management layers in an effort to appease their true, but deluded, masters: the public.

One thing I will say, it is encouraging to see this wobble in the matrix. It is a balking within the forward ranks of the enemy. We can only keep up the pressure. We must urge what little integrity we have left among our journalistic elite to thrive now on the information available to them, as it has been to us for so long.

Most of all we must not fall for this feinting tactic. We must purge the system of this sickness and regain control for the sake of our children and the spiritual survival of man.

Let the battle for truth and freedom and the prosperity for all human kind commence.
