Queen Mab

Shelly.
Nature! -no!
Kings, priests and statesmen blast the human flower
Even in its tender bud; their influence darts
Like subtle poison through the bloodless veins
Of desolate society. The child,
Ere he can lisp his mother’s sacred name,
Swells with the unnatural pride of crime, and lifts
His baby-sword even in a hero’s mood.
This infant arm becomes the bloodiest scourge
Of devastated earth; whilst specious names,
Learnt in soft childhood’s unsuspecting hour,
Serve as the sophisms with which manhood dims
Bright reason’s ray and sanctifies the sword
Upraised to shed a brother’s innocent blood.
Let priest-led slaves cease to proclaim that man
Inherits vice and misery, when force
And falsehood hang even o’er the cradled babe,
Stifling with rudest grasp all natural good.
Queen Mab Shelly. 44 iv

What do we learn from Lies Damned lies and statistics,
Polling and rhetoric and voting logistics.
Perhaps that Mandates like beauty are
in the eye of the beholder. Who Whilst in Glass houses,
should Think twice before casting that Boulder.
Indeed one, should always be mindful
of the many known unknowns. And That politicians are rarely

democrats even as they grow older.

From 79 to 2015 watching the Election in Swedish Exile ( self imposed)

I will be keenly awaiting this first clue as to how today is turning out, 11 pm Swedish Time 10 pm ish UK time. For the 1987, 92, and 97 Election My Ex Nicola Evans and our Great Friend Jeremy Cross​ sat up through the night hoping for Labour Victory. In 97 we were of course Jubilant although, reservations about Tony Blair turned out to be correct. In 87 and 92 we were all rooting for Alf Dobbs the Labour Candidate for Battersea who we had all voted for By 97 I was living in the East End in Tower Hamlets as was Nicola and Jeremy was living in waterloo next to The festival Hall. It was from Our house in Tower Hamlets  that Jeremy and I went to The Royal Festival Hall and then on to an All Night Pub at Smithfield for a Pint of Guinness and Breakfast to celebrate the End of the Thatcher era ( or so we thought). This time around fed up with Labour I have thrown my lot of hopes in with supporting the Greens who I hope do well and that a Left coalition can oust the Blairitee core of Labour and get back to some honest Socialist Democracy.
I owe my most precious possession , my education, to State funded and Grant aided Primary, secondary and further education. Student loans and Tuition fees are to me indefensible and such a massive bar to equality of opportunity.

ON THE NATURE OF TOTALITARIANISM “The lies of totalitarian movements” Hannah Arendt.

What’s Behind The Man Behind The Curtain

Conspiracy rabbit holing can be tricky. It only takes a slight glitch in your interface with the establishment propaganda matrix to make you acutely aware that the talking heads on TV and the politicians in Washington are lying to everybody, and that’s often all it takes to get you asking questions. But once you move toward trying to get those questions answered, it can be so easy to get lost along the way.
Interesting Questions and a clear shared experience. Rupert Sheldrake has a theory he calls Morphic Resonance, it says that once thought or knowledge initiates in a species then the Knowledge replicates over space and time through a sort of metaphysical internet cloud.
In Shellys Poem the Masque of Anarchy he states , “Rise Like Lions after Slumber, in unvanquishable Number, throw your chains to ground like Dew, We are many they are few” .
Paul Foots article on Shelly is well worth a read, Queen Mab is other worldly in its deep wisdom.

KICK NEO-LIBERALISM INTO TOUCH. #CORBYN4PM THE ARGUMENT FROM POLITICAL ECONOMY AND HISTORY. #GE2017

A WELL HUNG PARLIAMENT SIGNIFIES VIRILE DEMOCRACY.

hence it follows,
that, to subject the labouring classes to unnecessary labour,
is wantonly depriving them of any opportunities of intellectual
Improvement; and that the rich are heaping up for
their own mischief the disease, lassitude, and ennui by
which their existence is rendered an intolerable burthen.

true pension-list is the rent-roll of the landed proprietors:
they demand from us but a slender portion of industry. If
wealth is a power usurped by the few, to compel the many
to labour for their benefit. The laws which support this
system derive their force from the ignorance and credulity
of its victims: they are the result of a conspiracy of the
few against the many, who are themselves obliged to
purchase this pre-eminence by the loss of all real comfort.

The commodities that substantially contribute to the sub-
sistence of the human species form a very short catalogue,
these only were produced, and sufficiently produced, the
life, may be devoted to the cultivation of the understanding,
species of man would be continued.

The 2018 and 2019 local election results suggested the Conservatives might struggle to get a majority at the next general election

via The 2018 and 2019 local election results suggested the Conservatives might struggle to get a majority at the next general election I do think this is a very promising Indicator. The spread in the Opinion Polls seems so wide as if two different weighting factors are in use. https://notthegrubstreetjournal.com/2019/12/11/capons-turkeys-and-norweigan-blues-ge2019will-santa-finds-out-whose-naughty-and-nice-who-will-win-the-race-for-number-ten-grub-street-says-corbyn-wiki-ballot-says-johnson-who-believes-in-santa-a/

A question appeared on Quora?

My friend from Germany says America is not the greatest country in the world. How can I convince him otherwise? by Kevin Dolgin
My Answer.
The Tension between Domestic and Foreign Policy and the separation of the two is actaully a theme in Dr Henry Kissinger’s Doctoral Thesis.
Henry Kissinger, A World Restored: Metternich, Castlereagh and the Problems of Peace, 1812-1822 (1957)
´´There are at least two forces at work against which the tragic hero of the statesman struggles. The first is “the problem of legitimizing a policy within a governmental apparatus;” an issue Kissinger calls a “problem of bureaucratic rationality” (Kissinger 2013, 326). While the making of policy is defined by contingency and flexibility, bureaucracies of government measure success in terms of calculability and safety, characteristics uncommonly associated with the messy process of policymaking (Kissinger 2013, 326 – 327).´´
It´s always nice to be able to quote a bit of Shelly,
Castlereagh appears with other members of Lord Liverpool’s Cabinet in Shelley’s poem The Masque of Anarchy, which was inspired by, and heavily critical of, the Peterloo massacre:
I met Murder on the way –
He had a mask like Castlereagh –
Very smooth he looked, yet grim;
Seven bloodhounds followed him
All were fat; and well they might
Be in admirable plight,
For one by one, and two by two,
He tossed them human hearts to chew
Which from his wide cloak he drew.[17]
Carol Quigley is very good on the public opinion point in Tragedy and hope he says this.
Quigley’s words.p.232 tragedy and Hope.
´´but criticism should have been directed rather at the hypocrisy and lack
of realism in the ideals of the wartime propaganda and at the lack of honesty of the chief negotiators in carrying on the pretence that these ideals were still in effect while they violated them daily, and necessarily violated them. The settlements were clearly made by secret negotiations, by the Great Powers exclusively, and by power politics. They had to be. No settlements could ever have been made on any other bases. The failure of the chief negotiators (at least the Anglo-Americans) to admit this is regrettable, but behind their
reluctance to admit it is the even more regrettable fact that the lack of political experience and political education of the American and English electorates made it dangerous for the negotiators to admit the facts of life in international political relationships.”
