The poor must wake up to the growing Extremism of the Conservatives
So the current Conservative government in the U.K has been in power barely 2 and a half years, and while it has lived up to its promises to cut every area possible, they have also failed to hit every statistic in aiming to reduce the deficit. That really is some achievement, Dave. Instead of restoring economic growth promised by their government, we have instead dipped into recession three times. Now, I am not saying cuts should not be made, but the cuts are occurring in all the wrong places.
For instance, George Osbourne recently passed a legislation through Whitehall to make a further £10billion in cuts to welfare, but if those reliant on welfare have their tax cut, why are we so against introducing a mansion tax, or something that constitutes! Surely if the poorest are paying their share, the richest members of society should too? This is the result of what the Tories believe to be a ‘fair’ and ‘equal’ austerity plan, in fact there is nothing fair and equal about it! It’s the same old, ‘we don’t use it, why should we pay for it’ attitude from the Conservatives, why fund the NHS for those who need it when they’ve never used anyone but a private doctor? Our health comes second when profits can be made from pharmaceuticals and with the taxation it brings to the government why wouldn’t they want to privatize it all?
The problem at the moment, however, is the ‘scrounger’ culture that is being forced into our minds. To keep the working classes quiet at the same time as taking away their entitlements, you must ensure they do not know its happening. This is where the ‘scrounger’ lie comes in. The Conservatives have created a lie that the majority of those out of employment and claiming benefits are doing so because they are ‘too lazy’ to work. They have fed this lie to the working classes who are in employment and made them believe that those in their neighbourhoods are scum, that their taxes are paying those who don’t want to work.
It cannot be deemed fair that many of the underprivileged are losing their benefits when at the same time there are some of the richest in our society outright avoiding paying their way. Surely the £3 million Jimmy Carr was found to have not paid has cost the economy far more than an unemployed parent claiming a minuscule £55 per week? Gary Barlow was recently awarded an OBE, weeks after being outed as a tax cheat. I guess it is easy for David Cameron to get angry at the non existent ‘scroungers’ though, when he has the whole of News Corporation whispering in his ear everyday. Just the same as Jeremy Kyle whispers in the ears of the working classes daily on TV.
It is after Cameron recently called time on the ‘equality impact assessments’ introduced by Labour, and the lack of protest from those at the bottom of society that I became deeply worried for working class Britain. For those of you who don’t know what this is, it is the assessment by which laws can be passed in the U.K, it is an assessment that ensures those most vulnerable in society can not be discriminated or effected to great extent by government implementation. The current government has now decided to scrap that, basically meaning it can pass anything it likes. To the leaders of this country we are merely a statistic, and as those leaders of this country and countries around the world do not know what it is like to be the average man on the street, we can be nothing more than a statistic…and at that a statistic that is draining the economy. I never believed DC was an extreme Conservative, rather that term I’ve heard used of a conservative with a small ‘c’. However, it seems that as more and more is cut from welfare, and more legislations are passed, it seems a majority Conservative government would have us all working for 2 pounds per hour, starving, and working non stop purely to bring money into the economy so that the rich can get richer. It is quite ironic that the media in this country and other countries, especially America, aim to show us how terrible the left wing governments are operating around the world, how people are starving and child labour rises, yet the Capitalism in our countries is on the verge of doing just that if our economies do not grow soon?
The corruption of media and politicians
Lifes much harder when you live outside of a corrupt system, saying no I will not confine and thus stand for what I believe is right. Watching a society that is brainwashed by the media, it’s hard when very few people around you can even grasp what is going on and you just have to watch the dictatorship take its control over people. What can you do? Wait for time to pass by, in the hope that people will one day (sooner rather than later) wake up. It is a damn site scary when politicians are even scared of the media and will fall head over heels to be perceived well in the public eye.
Take the current case in the UK with Rebekah Brooks and the current PM David Cameron for example. Rebekah and the biggest news corporation in the world where found guilty of being part of a phone hacking scandal where they had illegally hacked phone calls to maintain information to put in their newspapers. David Cameron chose to overlook this crime as the newspaper is currently in favour of his party, giving it good publicity, so therefore he chose to overlook by texting her on a weekly basis telling her not too worry, obviously insinuating he would do all he could to ensure her crimes where overlooked in order to maintain his relationship with what is probably the most powerful woman in media. She also had strong relationships with the previous three primeministers of the UK.
So where does this end? If the people at the top of society are showing no signs of morale behaviour and acting purely in self interest and greed, how can they dictate how the rest of us act? There has been so much corruption in politics and the media in recent years, but why is Rebekah Brookes so important? Well she is regarded so highly because of her power, but its how she uses it to develop relationships that is dangerous. She is at the very top of our media, she controls what she wants and doesn’t want us to see and read in our newspapers, and 80% of us believe it. Even when newspapers have a reputation for lying to us, we still go out and purchase them. The lower classes are slated left right and centre in these newspapers, from the london riots in 2011 to other circumstances, rather than looking at the reasons for their behaviour, which is an underlying problem in society which is down to how we are treated by the people in power, they instead choose to exploit us, all based on one thing, money.
They don’t want benefits or a welfare state at all, these people will never need access to these things and do not rely on help of others, they would rather ignore us completely with their dog eat dog nature and let us fend for ourselves even if we are not in a position to do so, all because they do not want to be taxed. So my point is that people at every level from the elites, the politicians to the people in the media, they are all abusing their power, not just with a lack of understanding of the lower classes, but a selfish and greed driven strategy.
Many people in our society do not know that the corruption of the media is at the cause of so many problems in our society, racism, sexism, religious segregation, they are caused by a number of components in which the media use to turn the lower classes against eachother, afterall have you ever noticed you never see a religious politician, a black politician and only on a rare occasion do you see a female one. It is all used to prevent the lower classes from having the same mindset and becoming all too powerful and revealing the truth behind their corruption.
