But in the years since I started the scribbling, so much shite has oozed its way out of what we know as "The Establishment", that I found myself looking deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole.
Some days I wish I had never bothered.
I wish I hadn't discovered:
- That the monarch has committed treason. Thousands of times.
- That we were conned into joining the EU.
- That there is a Black Pope.
- That statutes are unenforceable.
- That my name belongs to the government.
- That I don't need any licenses because anything licensable is inherently lawful
- That Magna Carta 1215 is still the basis for our rights.
- That money is worthless.
- That my taxes are mostly wasted.
- That no-one on the planet has dominion over me.
- That Unum Sanctum 1302 claimed my mind, body and soul.
- That my birth certificate is used to generate billions.
- That Lawful Rebellion is a duty, an obligation.
I wish I didn't know these things. I wish I was still Borg. Life was simpler then. Pay all demands made by the government. Immediately pay parking and speeding tickets, even if you KNEW no-one was hurt or suffered a loss by your actions. Simply pay energy bills without examining them for flaws. Simply go along. Because everyone else does.
I wish I didn't know these things, but I do. And I am angry. I am angry that I was stitched up. I am angry that those elected to represent me do no such thing. I am angry that the monarch I served faithfully gave me and my country away to the EU.
I am happy to have fair, clear, sensible rules. Otherwise life would be chaotic and we do need some order. I am even happy to chip in to the public purse to pay for stuff I use: the roads, the doctors, the hospitals, a well-trained well-equipped armed forces, well-trained constables (not the damned revenue-collecting thugs we have now), de jure courts where I am judged by my peers not some crusty old paedophile who won't even confirm his oath in court.
I draw the line at keeping six million people paid for doing bugger all. I know we need to support those who cannot work but the ones who will not work really grip my shit. I know we need some civil servants but do we really need 5 million of them, FFS! I know we need some MPs but do we really need 650 of them? I know we need to support some foreign countries going through a rough patch, but do we need to send £11 billion to a country with its own space programme, one that has just spent billions on FRENCH fighter jets? Do we really need to send aid to Brazil, the same Brazil that is awash with oil & gas? Do we? Really?
My ranting and raving here serves no real purpose. I am (mostly) preaching to the choir. Hell, some of you will comment with stuff I have overlooked, and you will be just as angry and disappointed as I am.
But lately we have attracted morons who not only say I am wrong, but that they want the status quo to keep on status quoing. It's enough to drive a man to drink.
I'm off for a drink.
Have a great weekend.
