Tomorrow is the big day in the UK: the General Election. Will Boris Johnson remain Prime Minister, and implement some sort of faux-Brexit? Or will we have to endure a government under the ghastly Jeremy Corbyn?
Our English correspondent Seneca III sends his thoughts on these and other matters.
Brexit on the Sands of Time
by Seneca III
Above all things the Brexit Circus has given us a metaphorical microscope with which to examine the putrid innards of the Palace of Westminster and far beyond. It has exposed in detail the full extent of the devious workings of the establishment and its fellow travellers and their blatant contempt for democracy. It has most of all peeled back layer by layer the darkly flawed construct that is the EU and revealed the motivations, control mechanisms and future intent of those presumptive masters across the ditch.
The EU and, to a lesser extent the USA, thanks to what remains of its once sound constitutional foundations, are both monoliths built with good intent but now drowning in an ideological cesspit created by a political class consumed by an insatiable lust for power.
For as long as these huge, centralised constructs attempt to force one law, one retrogressive culture and one sort of politics on all different demographics trapped within their sphere of influence there will be resistance. Neither will China, in the longer term, be an exception.
In the US and the EU the founding objective of both continental collectives was to take their destinies solely within their own compass, justifiably in the former, case but the complete opposite in the latter. In the Old Dominion it was done openly after years of requesting reasonable and equal treatment (No taxation without representation!) by the Crown, but in the EU, starting after the secretive, early Bilderberg Conferences which culminated in the birth of the apparently benign EEC, it was accomplished surreptitiously by guile, back-room conspiracies, subterfuge, self-interest and lie after lie after lie… a process our own malignant collection of morally destitute and arrogant political classes here in the UK aided and abetted with alacrity.
Yet, on both sides of the pond, the current mindset remains recalcitrant and will not easily take to the threat of an existence bereft of individual freedoms in a vast human hive controlled by the few for the benefit of the few, not the many.
