Saint Crispin’s Day

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to navigationJump to search

Martyrdom of Crispin and Crispinian (detail), by Aert van den Bossche, 1494

Saint Crispin’s Day falls on 25 October and is the feast day of the Christian saints Crispin and Crispinian (also known as Crispinus and Crispianus, though this spelling has fallen out of favour), twins who were martyred c. 286.[1]

It is a day most famous for the battles that occurred on it, most notably the Battle of Agincourt in 1415. Because of the St. Crispin’s Day Speech in Shakespeare’s play Henry V, calling the soldiers who would fight on the day a “band of brothers”, other battles fought on Crispin’s day have been associated with Shakespeare’s words. Other notable battles include the Battle of Balaclava (Charge of the Light Brigade) during the Crimean War in 1854 and the Battle of Leyte Gulf in the Pacific theatre in 1944.

I do think Tax avoidance comes into it but it is related to the wider issue of Money Laundering, the Panama Papers, and The Military-Industrial Complex.
Jo COx’s Murder is relevant to this question also.

Taxation and Government spending is weakly related at best ( Ruml) where there is a Sovereign currency issuer. This is at its heart tied to Monetary Sovereignty rather than Rich Donors supporting in or out. It’s about Money creation hegemony.

The Top Table, The Trump Card & The Elephant in the room.
A brief look at the hysteria in Liberal and Progressive chattering circles and it is hard not to feel concern for the anguish obviously felt by those afflicted by the idea, That Brexit, as Mrs May has kept telling us does indeed mean Brexit.
The story does not really start or end with Brexit though. If one thinks about Globalisation and the Global interconnectedness of Commerce and Trans Global corporations One has to stop and ask one’s self. Who is really in Charge? Ignorance of the answer to this question resides equally on both sides of the polarised question In short. “(WE)…´´ Like Benjamin Franklin,

The problem of the quality and extent of the discourse is very much still with us on Brexit, on both sides of the debate and both sides of the English Channel. The Issues are not clear cut and the problems are political in nature and therefore have a large ideological component. As well as essentially involving matters of opinion this question also involves matters of opinion about Divergent and wicked problems. The EU, The UK Democracy and Political Economy are allHuman constructs they involve choices and can always be changed society and community are emergent systems that are simply not pre-ordained.
David Graeber often when he writes points out that most opinions eventually reduce back to the ancient quarrel between Parmenides and Heraclitus.

Profitless usurer, why dost thou useSo great a sum of sums, yet canst not live?For having traffic with thy self alone,Thou of thy self thy sweet self dost deceive:Then how when nature calls thee to be gone,What acceptable audit canst thou leave?


It would have been a major conceptual error to allow usury to be
charged on agricultural loans denominated in metals, especially if the
interest and principal was to be paid in metal. For one thing, metals are
“barren” – they have no powers of generation. Any interest paid in them
must originate from some other source or process, outside of the bor-
rower’s understanding or control. Money and power would concentrate
in the hands of lenders.

This structural flaw was alleviated by the central authority. Although
the Royal household was the largest lender and charger of interest, it
took decisive action to minimize the harmful effects of usury, by peri-
odically declaring agricultural debt forgiveness. It also set official prices
for valuing various farm commodities, in effect monetizing them.

“In the earliest city cultures every form of exchangeable goods could
be used as money,” Heichelheim reports, estimating that 12 to 20 such
commodities were monetized. He thought that price lists such as
Hammurabi’s price tables (and those of Sumer, and of Mesopotamia)
have been misinterpreted as price controls when they are really official
exchange rates of various commodities when used as money. 13

This meant that borrowers, depending on their harvest to repay
loans, wouldn’t be harmed by seasonal market supply and demand
forces, as the increased supply from their harvest tended to push market
prices lower. Thus the effect of monetizing these commodities was to set
minimum floor prices for them, when used to repay loans.

But the usury error struck in Europe, and by the time the practice of
usury reached Greece and Rome, over a millennia later, repayment and
interest of metallic loans for agriculture were being demanded in metal
or coinage. This practice was not sustainable, and as we shall see, it led
to horrendous societal problems wherever it occurred.

Britain’s enslavement
Tacitus explains the policy of his father-in-law, Agricola, in bringing the comforts of Roman civilization to the barbarous British:

‘His object was to accustom them to a life of peace and quiet by the provision of amenities. He, therefore, gave official assistance to the building of temples, public squares and good houses. He educated the sons of the chiefs in the liberal arts and expressed a preference for British ability as compared to the trained skills of the Gauls. The result was that instead of loathing the Latin language they became eager to speak it effectively. In the same way, our national dress came into favour and the toga was everywhere to be seen. And so the population was gradually led into the demoralizing temptation of arcades, baths and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as ‘civilization’, when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement.’

Tacitus Agricola chapter 21, translated by H. Mattingly, Penguin 1948, 1973

alis…mihi uidetur, rex, vita hominum praesens in terris, ad conparationem eius, quod nobis incertum est, temporis, quale cum te residente ad caenam cum ducibus ac ministris tuis tempore brumali, accenso quidem foco in medio, et calido effecto caenaculo, furentibus autem foris per omnia turbinibus hiemalium pluviarum vel nivium, adveniens unus passeium domum citissime pervolaverit; qui cum per unum ostium ingrediens, mox per aliud exierit. Ipso quidem tempore, quo intus est, hiemis tempestate non tangitur, sed tamen parvissimo spatio serenitatis ad momentum excurso, mox de hieme in hiemem regrediens, tuis oculis elabitur. Ita haec vita hominum ad modicum apparet; quid autem sequatur, quidue praecesserit, prorsus ignoramus. Unde si haec nova doctrina certius aliquid attulit, merito esse sequenda videtur.

  • Translation: The present life of man, O king, seems to me, in comparison of that time which is unknown to us, like to the swift flight of a sparrow through the room wherein you sit at supper in winter, with your commanders and ministers, and a good fire in the midst, whilst the storms of rain and snow prevail abroad; the sparrow, I say, flying in at one door, and immediately out at another, whilst he is within, is safe from the wintry storm; but after a short space of fair weather, he immediately vanishes out of your sight, into the dark winter from which he had emerged. So this life of man appears for a short space, but of what went before, or what is to follow, we are utterly ignorant. If therefore, this new doctrine contains something more certain, it seems justly to deserve to be followed.
  • Book II, chapter 13
  • This, Bede tells us, was the advice given to Edwin, King of Northumbria by one of his chief men, at a meeting where the king proposed that he and his followers should convert to Christianity. It followed a speech by the chief priest Coifi, who also spoke in favour of conversion.

    “It will be a rigged second referendum. That Letwin amendment has been worked on for months. It is not a trvial delay”.

    That is I think a good sighting shot, at this point, what we are more able to discern is that the EU’s modern version of the Maginot Line defense remains unchanged. The EU position is as ever if at first we don’t succeed make them vote again.

    “Katy Balls of The Spectator spells out the strategy all along. Avoid blame. If that’s done it’s job done for Boris”.

    The first comment I read says that the question on any second ref should not have Remain as an option. I have cut and pasted a comment from back in January I made on the Dr Tim Morgan seeds blog. the Anatole Kaletsky view is that of the EUssr commisars both in Brussels and their would-be Pashas in the UK. Kaletsky analyses the scenarios of the second referendum ballot question.

    Regarding Brexit,
    My own view is that The Establishment in Britain by the most part does not want Brexit to happen if one reads Project Syndicate and Anatoly

    Reversing Brexit
    Jul 27, 2016 ANATOLE KALETSKY
    Instead of rushing Brexit, Europe’s leaders should be trying to avert it, by persuading British voters to change their minds. The aim should not be to negotiate the terms of departure, but to negotiate the terms on which most British voters would want to remain.

    When I was proposing the Grand cross-party Idea after the 2017 GE this was my prediction of how this would all get resolved, I still think it will play out this way. I am still agnostic on in or out as it makes no difference as long as the Neo-Cons have Trump by the short and curlies, which they seem to have.

    “IMV Brexit is a sideshow. In the long run I think a no deal exit would make very little difference economically and it’s the long run that matters.

    What does matter are the trends that Tim writes about which will continue to undermine economies of whatever stripe, including of course those of the EU itself and not just the UK.

    There are growing signs of substantial change in the EU and I think this will gather momentum over the next few years and the supranational, neoliberal model will come under increasing question.”

    Last word to ANATOLE KALETSKY Is Canceling Brexit Now Inevitable?
    Dec 27, 2018

    As matters stand today, a new British referendum on leaving the European Union would produce a clear majority for remaining a member, regardless of how the votes were counted or the questions were asked. And with the only two Brexit options set to be rejected next month, the questions are increasingly likely to be asked.

    or perhaps H G Wells,
    H.G. WELLS
    There is one direction in which Mr Streit’s proposals are open to improvement. Let us turn to another in which he does not seem to have realised all the implications of his proposal. This great Union is to have a union money and a union customs-free economy. What follows upon that? More I think than he realises.
    There is one aspect of money to which the majority of those that discuss it seem to be incurably blind. You cannot have a theory of money or any plan about money by itself in the air. Money is not a thing in itself; it is a working part of an economic system. Money varies in its nature with the laws and ideas of property in a community. As a community moves towards collectivism and communism, for example, money simplifies out. Money is a necessary in a communism as it is in any other system, but its function therein is at its simplest. Payment in kind to the worker gives him no freedom of choice among the goods the community produces. Money does. Money becomes the incentive that “works the worker” and nothing more. Ed. NB

    And If I may a stanza from my poem,
    Eliza with Rogerian inscrutability
    hears the confession of the mal-contents
    A mirror held up before cosmetic application
    Globalisation and Internationalism confused
    despotism´s nature is to abhor any say
    save that of its own momentary pleasure;
    it annihilates all intermediate situations
    between boundless strength on its own part,
    and total debility on the part of the people.

    Our reason can be our Judge, of the rivals;

    What we see in action is the self-styled “Elites” ( one man’s gent is anothers’ chinless wonder) are clinging to an outmoded view of the Competing elites model of democracy.

    One can think in terms of democracy among the International Elite based upon National Franchises. Schumpeter’s competing elites model of democracy serves double duty in demonstrating both the Political Theater of FAUX electoral political democracy and also in the behind closed doors machinations of the powerful list found in magazines like Forbes. ´´( quotes from Roy Madron​, Super Competent Democracies).

    ‘Democracy is that institutional arrangement for arriving at political
    decisions in which individuals acquire the power to decide by means of a
    competitive struggle for the people’s vote’.” Joseph Schumpeter, Quoted
    from Roy Madron, Super Competent Democracies who in turn Cites.
    “Participation, and Democratic Theory” by Carole Pateman. Dr Pateman
    says that, Schumpeter and his followers: … set the current
    Anglo-American political system as our democratic ideal (with) a
    ‘democratic theory’ that in many respects bears a strange resemblance to
    the anti-democratic arguments of the last (i.e. 19th) century. No
    longer is democratic theory centered on the participation of ‘the
    people’; in the contemporary theory of democracy it is the participation
    of the minority elite that is crucial and the non-participation of
    the apathetic, ordinary man lacking in the feelings of political efficacy,
    that is regarded as the main bulwark against

    I spent a few hours yesterday reading Our gracious hosts earlier work on the way back machine. John has covered the machinations of “Brightest and the best” extensively and Brexit should be viewed as a passage through a larger landscape of all the dominant themes driven by two things. American Exceptionalism and Dollar hegemony and its relationship to the petrodollar. ( PEANAC) and the Limits of Growth Club of Rome agendas expressed through Agendas 2021 and 2030 of the UN. For the UK the still drives a huge agenda in Yemen and other places.

    At the very bottom of it all, I think we are moving to Lord Acton’s dictum of.

    ” The issue which has swept down through the centuries and must be fought sooner or later is the people versus the banks.”
    Lord Acton

    The Remembrancer is one of the City of London Corporation’s Chief Officers; the role dates back to 1571. His traditional role is as the channel of communications between the Lord Mayor and the City of London on the one hand and the Sovereign, Royal Household and Parliament on the other. The Remembrancer is also the City’s Ceremonial Officer and Chief of Protocol.

    Since 2003, the Remembrancer has been Paul Double.[1] He joined the City of London from the Bar and earlier government service. His work in Parliament has centered on the legislation to implement the changes to the City’s electoral system
