The BBC was accused of dumbing down the news presentations, with naff graphics well if you look at the educational level of the new media moguls that are coming forward in the first wave of the modularised media trained market men people. The lame graphics at the centre of the discussion were aimed at the politically naïve. The established long term viewer used to news being just verbally reported is a dying breed, with reading and writing skills at the educational level being in a decline. The modern education system uses lame graphics and obvious examples to highlight a point of impress visually in case some of the students have word blindness they will all then get the point if its visually backed up and cover a greater amount of the next generation that have been spoon fed examples to illustrate the points that the verbally base people of the world get at a reading or hearing. The multiple choice generation are asked a question and then given a multiple choice questionnaire saving them the task of having to think for themselves or from being tested on their knowledge, in favour of prompting their memory, makes you wonder how many good guessers have slipped their way through the test faze.
Most political viewpoints when they become fixed cannot be swayed, the staunch support from the working class for the labour party is still hanging on even after all that these bumbling buffoons public gaffs and stubborn refusal to listen to sense and good advice. Its not only this country lets just take a global view at this disease and its symptoms.
The single greatest influence behind the new approach to news presentation in the new media is that the demographic that they are now pitching at is the video and computer games minded generation. It is well known by now that when a person reaches a level of understanding of the situation as it stands their views and allegiances become fixed and are hard to move.
The need to regenerate a new interest in the sinking leadership fiasco is prompted by the falling voting results. Its still a wonder how in a so called democracy where the supposed majority hold sway. That sixty percent of the voting populace don’t vote and that is still the majority. They are delivering a vote of no confidence in the system as it is rigged run, only votes count but there isn’t a no vote box even in the big politics house in London the ‘No’s’ have a vote. The ayes to the left and the no’s to the right and one system for them and another system for us its all just rigging with smoke and mirrors inst it.
So with the old and time tested belief that if you get them young and form their views quickly you can count on them for a decade or two, is still as good a tactic today as it ever was. Because the sheep mentality that teaches kids not to think will have a lot of persuasion on a generation that have had their better senses dulled by being led by the hand and having everything laid on, this has had the effect of dulling initiative, drive and clear thinking, imagine today we now have an educational system that negates the essence of educating. The now generation are being formed as they need immediate stimulus, results or feedback. Well is that progress or control. The fact that the can only choose from a dictated selection seems to be getting overlooked, can’t imagine how that happened eh.
Remote controlled aid is another source of frustration as yet another governmental body does all that it can to hold on to power and control at the expense of not just liberty and thinking, but life is being lost as various groups of people all with their own agendas haggle and debate control while the life blood of a nation is staining the soil. The fact that we are not fit to rule is becoming more obvious by the day. It will be interesting to hear the rigged figures that come out of that election, the timing of the disaster would have proven to the world the truth about election being staged the world over. Just take a look at the great American road show and all of the misinformation that was spread about. The attempted bribe was the last nail in the coffin for one money waster. Now the real fight was with the opposition but neither of them could leave the dog alone.
Zimbabwe is another case in point about the power hungry and the lengths that they will go to, to preserve their own position and authority. We cannot ever be surprised when you profile people that are drawn to power, it should be built into the vetting system but …
China had to go to the remotest point on the planet to get guaranteed peace to display this now tarnished symbol of the ideal of competition and contest. The envoy from china was quoted as saying that they could not exert influence over the neighbouring junta as it was against their beliefs to try and influence any other government. Makes you wonder how they can still occupy another country that doesn’t want them there.
The very public assassination in India and the timing of it is beyond belief, most people in the world think that something suspicious went on there regardless of the ‘facts’.
A nation that uses its propaganda machine to influence the thinking or behaviour of its populace isn’t so far fetched, the information that is omitted is usually done so for their own good. Is that the start of the rot, the parental discretion of big daddy. Who apparently knows better than the best informed and the best educated people on the planet at since time began.
Look at the American populace they know world events only from the American standpoint, they are such well trained consumers and they are made defensive of their over consumption. They are such a media culture that they believe the Hollywood ideal, and think that America is the land of the brave and the home of the free.
The analogy of the one bowl of rice versus the three is being rubbished and muddying the water to salve the American hurt over its own rampant consumption, the consumer is a product of the political force that says every one should be working, how can that ever happen when rich countries still import from the poorest countries and mark up huge profits while poor workers have a life of servitude and it will never change for them. You and I can at least hope to improve our lot, and it used to be that further education was the way when education was linked to apprenticeships, business sponsorship and we had a growth market. The last growth sector in this country was the government driven programs for re education in the re training programs. The YTS, to the present mature student drive have all failed to do anything but get people into debt with loans because there just isn’t enough jobs in this downward spiralling economy.
The majority of new jobs in the last decade have been job sharing, or assisted start-ups to get women back into the market place, because the traditional view that men are too bolshie is still held in certain sectors today. Arthur Scargil has a lot to answer for, when he took on a government and lost, effectively breaking the power of the unions. The mythical concept of a living wage is a thing of legend, we all think we are working towards it but the hard facts of life clearly indicate that it is an impossibility. This unsustainable delusion needs to be re thought in the cold light of day in the growing illumination of the revelation of the facts. The reality checks are all being fudged by misinformation. Its not what you are told that we should all be focussing on but what is going on out of sight that we should worry about. How else can you get an important personage into a troubled spot for first hand experience.
And the greatest stumbling block in the way is if you cannot think for yourself and are spoon fed answers, how can you ever be expected to read between the lines. If a voting system is only representative of forty percent of the people, and if the winners get forty eight percent of that vote. Aren’t they then in fact a minority in rule and that is dictatorial just from the figures alone. Its nice that our own pet system is not out in force in the streets, giving its uniformed controllers greater powers, citing rumours and fudging figures to dictate their own rule. While pointing at other mythical figures and misdirecting at say single parents, then finding out that the figures were wrong and then say relenting and promoting them in a new employment drive. Just couldn’t happen could it the partnership of woven reeds is a local example.
The types that are drawn to power have to have a totalitarian viewpoint based on their own party program. They have to be stubborn enough to stand up to advise that is wrong or damaging, while they must also have the strength of character and nerve to steer an unpopular course through difficult waters to weather the storm and dock in safe waters. This is only the civil minded set though the personality profile of a military minded individual being brought into the profile equation is seriously undermined when the character is taught that casualties are a by product of war and that all engagements can incur losses and that some losses are acceptable. Like a doctor cutting off an arm or a leg to save the body. The process still makes a cripple, and yes every cripple finds their own way to walk is true. There is no hope of regeneration for the amputee at present but with time and using science fiction as the directive who knows. Well nothing concrete in that statement just more political fudging.
Is it just a new wave of entertainment as yet another puppet master rears his ugly head, no life’s not putting you on or rushing your Baltic’s comrades but it is still coming from the red corner, the blairing truth could turn the nation blue from more of the same old diet. This is just a symptom of a nation gagging from to much of old mother browns homemade gruel. Can old dictators ever learn to stop ramming their appendages up someone else’s shirt. No strings honestly.
Sherrie Blair the unknown woman at the right hand of the religion jumping ex leader of the western red block, needs your cash so give generously for the poor woman must be suffering to be out in public with the begging bowl in hand. Who does she think is so interested anyway.
The Boris the buffoon’s road show is on the ramp up, as he talks tough and knuckles down, but he is on the right track with the alcohol ban, it is the social and family destroyer. The single most destructive drug on the planet and its legal and the government earns from it as the nation is hung over by it. This legal substance has been the single greatest cause of social destruction since it was invented. There are a few responsible drinkers in the world according to the law of averages but they are the exception. Just look at crime figures, take a poll of the present prison population and its their habits that drive and fuel their behaviour. So well done Boris and lets all watch the idiot dance as the word on the fools lips are often times the irony of jesting wisdom.
How are the figures fudged, school leaving age, sick pay, re education (more personal debts) its supposed to enhance your life its supposed to be you benefiting and yet.
For the want of a good Samaritan a man died, a father imprisons his own daughter and systematically abuses her for quarter of a century and no one knows till his guard slips. A child is abducted from a bath while the parent is in the house. A child is abducted from a holiday villa and two others lie asleep in another room, it happens within sight of the parents and other holiday makers. A child is abducted and found by police in a divan bed beside her abductor. A violent game fan stabs a passer by for a casual comment. A father is stabbed asking some thugs to leave his vehicle alone within hearing of one of his daughters. A young boy’s attacker is finally brought to trial even though his identity was broadcast for over six months. At time life makes no sense at all.
A new car tax will penalise the low incomer’s who can’t afford a new car. A low income tax is scrapped penalising nearly five million low income earners by doubling its value. Lets face it ten pence may well be the final straw for a country to long told to hang on, bide your time things will improve.
The American populace start to focus on cutting back on luxury items and some fast food outlets are laying off workers and branches are closing. The financial institutions all know that trying to not say the ‘R’ word just won’t make it go away yet. The fact that figures are always being fudged cant be a surprise to anyone in this well informed era, builders always hike their estimates when they have you by the short and curly’s, China flatly refuses to listen to world opinion, but we will make them yen for our dollar or pound of flesh. They may be the largest single race on the face of the planet, but they are outnumbered and outmatched be even the smallest of political democratic franchises. In the annals of history what will china be remembered for, a wall, pasta, ice-cream, and peeking to early in history. A closed dictatorial and brutal society is a worry in an open political world platform.
Governments hate to admit that the industrial revolution died, that the service sector needs a stronger economy and that the leisure industry boom went bust, even government healthy eating programs and fitness advice has all fallen on deaf ears. With leisure centre memberships costing the price of a really decent holiday we all know which we will choose. But now the rising price of food is likely to start the impoverished to shed the fat and push the staples in the cart while being more selective about the luxuries, and this will have an affect on the nations health, as third world countries get richer they will compete for more food and better quality of food at that, and this will have an adverse affect on food prices at some time down the line. Countries that do not produce enough home grown staples will be the first to suffer as the big ‘R’ takes hold on bolstered economies with subsidised industries being the first to go to the wall.
We are reaching a turning point in the worlds history, we are the best informed people in the history of the world, we are less influenced by the propaganda machines, the media hustlers, and the grifter’s at the doorstep than at any time before in world history. Sales forces are going to be facing the hardest conditions since the global economy started driving the service sector and public sector costs. With less and less people browsing in shopping malls they may well become the blot on the landscapes that local protestors said they were. Banks are impotent in the wake of their own failures propagated by wanton greed and idle speculation in uncertain waters. The cascade affect has decimated the global stocks markets several times in the last few decades, with billions being wiped out either overnight or over the space of a few days. Recovery is always slower where markets are artificially bolstered by the pillars of the economic institutions of the elite world players, like blue chip underwriters and investment houses.
The writing was on the wall for the workforces of the world when full employment could only be achieved by job sharing, low wage earners have to be subsidised, crèche facilities, cost the governments most reliable workers pays, because the powers that be are afraid to face the writing on the wall. The system just doesn’t work, it has been limping from one disaster after another for decades. The miners strike in the seventies saw the workers champions making a political move and the workforce was split, the government divided and conquered. They were afraid that if we were idle we would become subversive and western ‘freedom’ would fall. A system that is formed around the idea that one in ten (the so called law of averages) will have the savvy or wit to be able to fleece the other nine in the race, out of a percentage of their income to make themselves rich, is penalising nine to one. Like the meat eater demanding that the land that could provide food for twenty people to live on, is used to give them a diet of choice, as omnivorous beings we can survive on vegetable or meat, it is our taste that dictates the choices just ask any vegetarian if they miss bacon and more than half will say they do.
Ah Well another day another dollar here in hell.
Funny thought though remember the Tsunami of 05 well an estimation by one of the world peace organisations said that all the money that was needed to raise the third world out of the poverty and squalor was one point five billion, and the word raised more than that in pledges. Wonder what happened to that money don’t you.
With the wind of change blowing through the emergence of smaller nations onto the world stage, is it any surprise that they are all emulating the worst characteristics of the western writers worst developed characters from the worst sort of third rate soaps that we currently watch, nasty, suspicious, double dealing, lying cheating.
The politics of the African nation is dealt out with the keen cutting edge of the sword to get its point accross.
Trust is a thing of the past, honourable people are in decline and yet we still havent descended into the levels of depravity that the bugling church has threatened for centuries. The modern cultural differences are, we are a pragmatic not a religious collection of beings, we tend to believe what we can see or validate for ourselves. We only trust after we have gotten to know, a hard lesson from experience. We tend not to take to many things for granted. We love by degrees, and we all tend to put ourselves first, even those zealots find a podium and a spotlight to spout their interpretations of the truth.
As an ego based animal that is rising in evolution according to the natural order of reality, we all tend to know better than to overlay any stupid or idealistic philosophies onto the reality that we inhabit. Except fot those idiots that think that any creator actually needs it creations help, a bit like the scientist asking the machine to tell him how it feels, and what could he do to make it better, easier etc.
We are the experiment of the realities need to aspire and create, we are not the toys of some demented supernatural being that must enlist our aid to correct the aborations in , cast, race, faith, philosophy, politics, religion, thinking. The intent to murder is held in the beings heart, and the mind that old tool, will crack the nut to express what is in the darkest heart. And words are the tools of the mind to express intent, meaning, information, directions and well-being. But physical force is the expression for the helpless who need to feel in controll, and violence is the darkest order of I am right and you are dead.
Well forgive me for speeking the obvious but violence can only diminish the heard that is controlled untill the controllers are all that is left and then there were none.
