By Neil Foster – Sovereign independent UK -
“Nothing to see here” seems to be the clarion call of the mainstream media as front pages and countless column inches swamp our putrid mainstream media publications with all the associated and unbelievably childish clichés you can think of to splash across a sheet of paper to salivate over the opening of the London 2012 Olymptricks. You’d think there was nothing more important happening in our world with mass slaughter, the poisoning of life and impending financial collapse getting a backstage pass into obscurity as Olympsick sychophantic jokers masquerading as journalists churn out ‘Bread & Circuses’ minutiae to the gullible and entertainmental masses.
Having done my usual perusal of the front page ‘headlines’ of what is portrayed as ‘news’ this morning, I couldn’t help feeling saddened that the British people were buying this trash and therefore supporting the medium of mass propaganda. But then again, isn’t that what the propaganda sheets have taught them to do?
I simply can’t understand how anyone can look at the corporate takeover of what are described as the ‘people’s games’ with any sense of enjoyment or wonder when they’re surrounded by an armed force with more men and firepower than the unlawful warzone of Afghanistan.
I’m sure there must be those of the older generation in this country wondering how it’s come to this when either they or their direct ancestors fought and died during WWII to prevent just this sort of scenario ever being played out on the streets of Britain
How those who crawled through blood soaked trenches, with the entrails of their fellow men on both sides of the conflict clinging to their boots, must be turning in their graves today.
It sickens me to see such displays of corporatism, or to give it its real name ‘Fascism’, openly flaunted in our faces when those same corporations, such as Coca Cola, Visa and Proctor & Gambol, for example, are responsible for many wrongs in this world today. Yet they are being glorified under the banner of the Olympics as some kind of saviours.
Hey they’ve given us the ‘games’… It smacks of Nero in the last days of his insane rule over Rome.
Let’s just hope that London doesn’t suffer the same fate as Nero’s flaming city.
