This is an open letter to the entire human race, literally not one exclusion.
I would like to open this letter with a question.
What are we doing?
For some this question may be somewhat confusing or misleading, for others this question will seem fairly straight forward but for all the wrong reason, hopefully there are also those of you who know exactly what this question entails and are finding it increasingly difficult to answer.
By the end of this letter I want everyone to have enough information to fully understand the question and possibly even the first step towards answering it.
What are WE doing?
UK government debt is around one and a half trillion if you take into
account unfunded pensions, PFI schemes
and all the other off balance sheet debts.
Private debt just about matches this if you take into account
mortgages, credit cards and overdrafts. (USA debt is 14 trillion.)
Now try to get your head round a trillion.
Perhaps this helps.
1 million seconds = 12 days
1 billion seconds = 31 years
1 trillion seconds = 31,000 years
(note: – the British billion is now the same as the American billion -
a mere thousand million, not a million million)
The next time you hear a politician casually talk about ‘a billion pounds’, stop and think about it.
Ask yourself – are they spending YOUR tax money as you want?
Are you happy with the fact that YOUR taxes are being used to fund illegal wars around the world? That they are being used to blow innocent Men, Women and Children to bits with cluster bombs and air strikes, destroying the infrastructure and livelihoods of millions of innocent people, and they're doing it in OUR NAME (we consent to it by allowing to happen every single day) WHO ARE THE REAL 'TERRORISTS' HERE?
Are you happy that your taxes are being used to bailout banks who have failed through their own GREED and CORRUPTION. Did YOUR business get a huge monthly cash injection when it sank? Did the company YOU work for get a bailout when they went bust? WHAT ABOUT THE HUGE BONUSES PAYED OUT TO BANKERS? Despite the fact that WE are paying for it!?
These facts help put that ‘billion’ in perspective.
A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.
A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.
A billion Pounds ago was only 13 hours and 12 minutes, at the rate our government is spending
even more than it can raise from…
Corporate Income Tax
Fishing Licence Tax
Inheritance Tax (tax on top of tax)
Marriage Licence Tax
Service charge taxes
Social Security Tax
Vehicle Licence Registration Tax
Vehicle Sales Tax
Workers Compensation Tax
And what about the BBC TV LICENCE FEE? Are you happy that your hard-earned money has been spent over the years funding the luxury lifestyle of pedophiles and war mongers. Do you BELIEVE that you should be paying for repeats of programmes you've obviously already payed for in the past? Do you believe you should be paying for an obviously bias and misleading news service which only promotes the negative news and constantly keeps people in a state of fear? STOP PAYING YOUR LICENCE FEE, OR EVEN BETTER STOP WATCHING TELEVISION!!
Only one of the above – income tax – existed 100 years ago (at a maximum of 10%)
Our nation was one of the most prosperous in the world.
The industrial revolution was beginning to feed mouths and fill pockets.
Public spending was a mere 25% of GDP.
We coped with debts of £600 million resulting largely from the Napoleonic Wars.
We had the largest middle class in the world.
Mum stayed home to raise her children.
Dad was allowed to discipline his children.
A criminal’s life was uncomfortable.
The sun never set on the British Empire.
And now look at us today – trapped in the EU and governed by inexperienced pygmies.
How and why did this change happen?
The answer is equally mind-boggling and appalling, because we are to blame.
We have re-learned an old hard lesson :
people attracted to power are fundamentally unsuited to hold it.
Ask yourself: do senior politicians today believe in acting in the best interests of the people who elected them?
Self-evident answer: No. Self-interest and political survival come first.
SO what can WE do?
It's pretty simple really; If next week new legislation was passed to make it compulsory for all brown eyed girls born on an even numbered day of the month to be taken from their parents and sacrificed, would you allow it? Or would your rise up and say NO THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!? Well if you'd say no to that it means you do have a limit, so why do you allow everything else that happens?
My own personal belief is that nobody on this planet should ever have to work to survive. Food, water, shelter, clothing and education should be and could easily be made available to ALL, we live in a world of plenty, yet millions go without, we can stop this anytime we want, it's just a question of will.
I leave you with this;
"The World is like a ride in an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. The ride goes up and down, around and around, it has thrills and chills, and it's very brightly coloured and it's very loud, and its fun for a while. Many people have been on the ride a long time, and they being to wonder. "Hey is this real, or is this just a ride?" And other people have remembered, and they come back to us and say, "Hey, don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride." And we.... kill those people! "Shut him up! i've got a lot invested in this ride, shut him up! Look at my furrows of worry, look at my big bank account, and my family. This has to be real." It's just a ride. But we always kill the good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok.... But it doesn't matter because it's just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money. Just a simple choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love instead see of us as one. Here's what we can do to change the world right now, to a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace."
WAKE UP, STOP PAYING FOR THIS SHIT, START SAYING NO AND MOST IMPORTANTLY,
STOP BEING AFRAID.
Love, peace and abundence. x
