If there is any life form in the universe wondering if an entire planet can become insane, then they need look no further than this planet – Earth.

It may be possible that a form of life has appeared on Earth which has nothing to do with any natural order within the universe and which is capable of planet wide destruction and democide for self serving reasons, if so then science has a job on its hands.

If, however, we accept that the Tories and the corporate fuckwits who are running the world for profit are made of the same stuff of this universe as the rest of matter and life, then one can only conclude that nature contains within itself the seeds of its own destruction which has nothing to do with the natural forces of entropy and decay, but rather a propensity for insanity and ultimately suicide.

People like George Osborne or former CEO of the Nestl√© Group Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, who said “access to water is not a public right” and nor is it a human right, by their very existence, beg the question, is nature, in fact, senseless or even bonkers? If nature, and, by definition, life, is senseless, then what on Earth is the point of human sense, common sense, reason or rationality?

Asking such questions is the place of mind warping corporate, elitist, rapaciously greedy, planet buggering insanity we’ve come to.

Here’s more from Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, “Water is of course the most important raw material we have today in the world. It’s a question of whether we should privatise the normal water supply for the population. And there are two different opinions on the matter. The one opinion, which I think is extreme, is represented by the NGOs, who bang on about declaring water a public right. That means that as a human being you should have a right to water. That’s an extreme solution. And the other view says, that water is a foodstuff like any other, and like any other foodstuff it should have a market value.”

Let’s just remind ourselves of what an NGO is: an NGO is ‘a non-profit organization that operates independently of any government, typically one whose purpose is to address a social or political issue’. So, essentially, socialist, not corporatist nor political or market/profit oriented.

And to remind ourselves of what a CEO is: A CEO is ‘a chief executive officer, the highest-ranking person in a company or other institution, ultimately responsible for taking managerial decisions’. Note: CEOs have no right or responsibility for making planet wide decisions which affect all life on Earth, like the privatisation of water (the stuff of life).

George Osborne described his little adventures in politics and austerity to Carole Walker, who is leaving the BBC after 37 years, as fiascos, (fiasco: complete failure, especially a ludicrous or humiliating one). It says much of Osborne that he is such a self focused shit, he has no regard for the millions of people affected, including those dead and dying, by his narcissistic psychopathy and his fiascos.

Nature is always true to itself, sadly we are not, and anthropomorphising and diminishing nature to the level of our humanity is not remotely helpful, but the point remains that those with the power and resources to embrace life, humanity, sense and reason do not, whilst those who lack that power are aghast at the monumental enormity of the psychopathy of those in power. It is entirely unreasonable to blame nature or to suggest that nature is itself insane, but that’s the kind of stuff any human with a lick of sense must wonder in these times.

Above all, these people are not lizards from another dimension, they are in every way like us and made of the same stuff as us, but their nature has become perverted by power and greed. As such they are without excuse, as they are neither stupid nor uneducated, and we are in a fight of our lives for life, all life, against the enemies of life. Nature can be described as the ultimate NGO, it is the organisation underpinning all life, and Peter Brabeck-Letmathe might think that’s extreme, but ultimately he’ll answer to it and the world can breath a sigh of relief when he does.

It is to be hoped that when those in power finally surrender to their inevitable demise, they do not take the rest of us with them.

Sunday 22 February 2015.

Dear Mr Cameron,

I am a thinking man, it’s what I do best, even though I was repeatedly told at home, school and university that I think too much. Thinking fits neatly into your skiver/striver mentality, definitely falling into the skiver category.

Thinking is vastly undervalued for its own sake, human kind are judged on what we produce, if we can’t be seen to produce something that can be measured in usefulness or in monetary terms we are considered useless. Yet the entire progress of humanity has been a thinking process and the products of thought are infinitely smaller than the processes of thought which give rise to them.

Without thought we would never have utilised fire (and how long did that take?) (thank goodness corporate pillocks, like Nestle, weren’t around then to deny it as a human right) or invented the wheel, we would have no morality, conscience, philosophy, psychology, law, music, art or adventure. The entire tide of human progress is the progression of thought. What’s that worth, eh?¬† How does your ‘free market’ ideology deal with that? It might value the entrepreneur, but it doesn’t value the underlying process, thought. So in your incredibly diminished, shriven, world, human kind are reduced to being mere human resources, and the very thing that makes us human is regarded and treated as entirely without value, when it is, in fact, priceless.

Problem solving is a timeless, if misunderstood process, it is 99.9% grappling with the problem and 0.1% eureka (solution), because, of course, the solution is the resolution of the time consuming grappling process. They don’t teach that in school, if you don’t have the (Goves’ rote) solution you are regarded as stupid and many is the time I have heard people beating themselves up and berating themselves for not having a solution to a problem. There may be insoluble problems, sometimes I think that you Tories are one of them, but my experience is that if you grapple with a problem long enough, allow it to simmer on the back burner, let it strew in its own juice, a solution will at some point present itself.

I am an optimist, I think there is a solution to you Tories with your hide bound, hard wired, self serving, almost mindless pursuit of profit and oppression. Your war on the poor and your greed are offences against human nature and everything that makes us human and are an assault on the value of life itself. You have done your best to protect your self serving regime from easy solutions; stripping away our access to law, resources, protections and our right to protest. The solution will not come from screaming and shouting though, it will come from thinking and being prepared to quietly grapple with the problem, perhaps even from the unrestrained thinking of a child. Who knows? But I look forward to the day because, make no mistake, that day will come.
