Hungry, abused, powerless.



We are not powerless. We are the power - that's they're afraid to tell us, and what we're afraid to admit.

Tell that to the poor fuckers out there literally BEGGING for a No Deal Brexit.

If they're begging for other people to save them, they can't listen. Anybody who believes in the state cannot believe in their own power. We're beaten - we've been brainwashed over centuries to believe that power comes from above.

I blame Enclosure!

I'm not sure EU membership and international trade deals are decided at the anarcho-syndicalist level, Sharky.  I think you specifically need large nation states for that.

Yep, you 'need' nation states to tell you who you can and can't trade with, what you can and can't buy, what you have to buy things with and how much of a kickback to pay the state.

Yeah, nation states are essential because there's no way ordinary people are clever enough to buy and sell things on our own...

... tends to sit like a bowling ball on the stomach, repeating at irregular intervals as the body struggles to digest it before forcing the lions share of the damn thing through the lower intestine and out the alimentary canal ...

Hmmm, does that work as an analogy?

YOU CAN'T ARGUE WITH A COW

One for the Shark (Legendary) and the Monkey (Shaolin)

Life on the island of Eigg, where they drove off their feudal lord with fire and established an anarcho-syndicalist commune powered by renewable energy (using EU funds*).

WE THOUGHT WE COULDN'T DO WORSE THAN THEY HAD, WHICH WAS NOTHING


* There are dozens of such caveats in this one report, but let's not spoil the narrative

A brainless, rage-driven monster which leaves a trail of destruction in its wake and has an intelligent half that does all that they can to put things back to normal.

It works as an anal loggy.

I want to visit the houses of all the people who don't want the RNLI spending less than 1p in every pound teaching Bangladeshi kids to swim* and twat them about the head with a lifebelt until their humanity reboots.

As if the RNLI doesn't do enough. As if it should be funded by donations in the first place. Pathetic racist shits.

And just wait until the Mail discovers they cover RoI too!


*Roughly 14,000 kids and 8,000 adults drown in Bangladesh every year. Probably worth a few pence trying to bring that down a bit, eh.

UK news outlets swallowed the spin, though, including Channel 4 news.
