Recommendation | And a waffle

27 10 2010

What did you do in the war Daddy? is a take on an old WW2 call-up campaign and a very good one at that.  Also, I cannot recommend the following book enough.  Aldous “the only universe you power over is your own” Huxley, alleged Mason, Satanist, the lot, wonderful dystopian/utopian novel;  Brave New World.

If there is a plan, and there surely is, fail to prepare, prepare to fail an’ all that, then I think the unintended result whatever the original intentions will probably resemble something like this book.  Efficiency is key to survival, it is what separates the species and the individual alike.  How we can overcome nature’s temperament and beasts is due mainly to our ability to communicate and work as a team working from the same gameplan.

Every human being is capable of being a cog, and in the past, great personal sacrifices were made unwillingly but necessarily so others could perhaps enjoy another minute of life.  The social revolution of the late Victorian, Early Edwardian age was true progress.  After the war, every gift given has been a poisoned chalice, from the ‘free at the point of service’ NHS to the ‘free for all’  State Education.  ‘The mass replacement of cheaper cogs to plug up the gaps due to the killing fields in Europe and beyond was regressive.

Some human beings are born leaders, and I don’t mean the big-eared inbred nobility that have avoided the axe, I’m talking about your Horatios and Drakes.  A few become legends, King Arthur and Robin Hood to name but two, and to ensure the ladies don’t feel underrepresented, Britain’s Pagan Saint Boudicca.

Other human beings can be a nuisance but in the most part bearable.  A few have their moment in the sun, Edward Teach and Dick Turpin from our dark past yet we survived their thievery.  Some are despatched by the gallows while some don’t but justice has always been a fickle mistress.

Yet there are those with dark souls and darker hearts (baby-eating Satanists) who just cannot help themselves but be bad.  Many probably began with the most modest of intentions and just saw a hole that needed to be filled.  Then again, perhaps they were responsible for the hole in the first place???

The birth of thinking man spawned the geo-political hydra we see today.  Probably started with a few tribal heads at first yet with the wonders of modern gizmos and gadgets, has grown into the miliary-style ‘help the world‘ brigade we possess today.  Filled with the likes of the United Nations, NATO, European Union, United Kingdom and various extra admin zones, the African Congress, the Islamic one, the <insert cause here> Lobby Groups and the billions of idiots who think blindly that clap their hands in applause cos they’re getting something for nothing.

There’s always a catch though.  Always.
