Matt Hancock has made his Counter Protest Placard already I see.
The revolution will not be televised.
Back in the 2016 I set comments of Professor Melina Abdullah to the Great Track The Revolution will not be televised By Gil Scott Heron.
“I was blown away by the appearance of Melina Abdullah of Black Lives Matters on Democracy now yesterday following the Sanders win in the Michigan Primary. Professor Abdullah made a persuasive case for those interested in real change in the US not to become over-invested in a democratic (sic) process simply not designed as democratic in the sense of By the people for the people. The process is corrupt however hard Sanders or in a charitable case, Clinton and even Trump push back against. Its wider than that and the African American viewpoint is not something as A white Male expatriate white British Male in Sweden could ever understand let alone articulate so Reading Professors work as I have Dr. Cornell Wests ( Race Matters for instance) will provide me something of a shadow in the Allegory of the Cave. Cornell West inspired my Track Blues Man in the life of the mind. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jadV… and when Professor Abdullah mentioned and quite obviously referenced the Great Gil Scott Herons the revolution will not be televised I had to just edit that together along with some of the words of my Favorite living Philosopher Cornell West, and of Course the Dangerous Dude from the Brooklyn Hood Bernie Sanders. What happens in the US is more important to my Country of Birth The United Kingdom than the referendum to leave the EU, My blog on that can be found here”.
Since then we have had Brexit, President Trump all manner of “False Flag” terror, Skripal, PeeGate, New Zealand Mosques, London Bridge, Manchester Arena, Outrages in Every Continent and now #Contrick19
I put together this primer for the 26th September Rally in Trafalgar Square London touching on the Oligarchical Nature of the present rush to Serfdoms Brave new World for the 1% – 5% and 1984 for the rest of you.
RBG Death Means Two-Headed Uniparty Will Threaten Americans With Removal Of Civil Rights
Caitlin Johnstones Blog
“If however you recognize that America has two parties that are owned and operated by a single oligarchic class which has more or less the same overarching goal as far as ordinary people are concerned, it looks completely different.
If you understand that America has a two-headed one-party system designed to shrink the spectrum of acceptable debate down to arguments about how oligarchic agendas should be facilitated rather than if they should, what you see is a single entity threatening to take away your civil liberties if you don’t support it. A single establishment threatening to punch you with its right hand if you don’t let it punch you with its left.”
Who are they? perhaps a little Friere might help.
“[T]he more radical the person is, the more fully he or she enters into
reality so that, knowing it better, he or she can transform it. This
individual is not afraid to confront, to listen, to see the world
unveiled. This person is not afraid to meet the people or to enter into a
dialogue with them. This person does not consider himself or herself
the proprietor of history or of all people, or the liberator of the
oppressed; but he or she does commit himself or herself, within history,
to fight at their side.”―Paulo Freire,
