“The Human Laboratory” 6 November 1995 2


The Human Laboratory
Tonight’s programme investigates controversial contraceptive research carried out on women in Third World countries. It features testimony from women in the slums and villages of Bangladesh and Haiti, examines the belief of some Filipino women that they have been used as guinea pigs, and asks whether Third World testing of contraceptives can be unscientific and unethical. This pre-watershed programme deals with the emotive issue of family planning and its effect on women.

I am one of those who thinks that democracy is being destroyed.  I know its fashionable to play cynical one-upmanship and say – ‘we’ve never had democracy’, or, ‘it was destroyed long ago’,  but that game aside, I think its worth actually thinking about how, many forms of democratic expression, effective dissent and peaceful self-determination are being buried.

In “The Next Crisis” I argued that the Global Over-Class have decided that Democracy is a threat to their wealth and power and have more than likely given some thought to how best to neuter it while appearing to do no such thing.  I suggested they would wish to keep the outward form of democracy, so as to keep us reassured and entertained, but remove any substance from it, leaving us with an empty but colourful stage show.

In part two  of the series, I offered a list of the various ways this could be done (a sort of manifesto for the Over Class or, as I have called them elsewhere, The Disloyal and noted how many of those things were clearly already underway.

For example item three of the manifesto said,

3) professionalized Governance. Democracy can be and must be neutered, and an effective way of doing this is to insist that amateur, elected officials MUST take the advice of professional (read corporate) advisors. Expand current law to enforce this.

If this seems monstrous now, their argument, I suspect,  will be that in an increasingly crowded, interconnected and globalised world we can no longer leave critically important decisions in the hands of the uneducated, in-expert and amateur.  We must, of course, still be free to choose but must, from now on, be helped to choose ‘wisely’. And how can we choose wisely if we aren’t given wise choices to choose from?  Oh, the Orwellian beauty of it! No prizes for guessing who will decide what is and what is not wise.

Liars Lexicon

Here is the list of  Liar’s Lexicon posts.

Each takes one of the phrases or concepts which we’ve all heard and often been needlessly confused by. It has been my contention that none of these concepts is difficult. They are bandied about partly, I think, to encourage us to think we can’t understand and should just sit down and be quiet.

They are not difficult. They are, I contend, jargon whose purpose is to confuse and often to lie.

PAEDOPHILIA: How one piece of news can kill a novel

There is a paedophile syndicate that runs across the British Establishment at every level. When will it be purged?

This is one of the oddest posts I’ve ever put up.

Yesterday by email, somebody sent me this flashback to an article in the Independent during 2000. Lest we forget, that’s now over twelve years ago. In and of itself, there is the familiar pattern of it referring back to a 20-year period beginning nearly forty years ago. This is a brief set of extracts from it:

‘More than 200 children are believed to have been abused by a network of paedophiles in London care homes. Seven people have been arrested – and 11 council workers suspended – in the on-going police inquiry covering 20 years of sexual and physical abuse….The investigation is examining alleged abuse in Lambeth homes from 1974 to 1994….Links have also been discovered between several of the key suspects. They were found to have worked together in the same homes, given each other references and carried out training courses together….Two key workers at a children’s home were sentenced yesterday to a total of 23 years in prison for a string of sexual assaults on boys in their care. Former Deputy Principal Barrie Alden, 66, from Norwich, and ex-house master John Wright, 56, from Talgarth, Powys, were sentenced at Newport Crown Court. Alden and Wright committed the offences on a total of eight boys at the Ty Mawr residential home, near Abergavenny, South Wales, from the 1960s to the 1980s…’
