I am looking forward to Donald Trump becoming the President of the most powerful, armed and dangerous, elitist establishment cunts in the world. For this reason.

Because it’s insane. I used to enjoy the use of the word cunt as the most offensive swear word in the world but it is becoming so commonplace that we are bereft of a fall back position. We have nothing left, although I did try to improve on it with ‘thunder cunt’ while writing a letter a day to Number 10.

Since 2010 in Britain it has looked like we had reached the end of days, because Britain is the beating heart of empire building and imperialism, and in its last gasp it has turned on its own people and started killing us off for yet more profit and reward for the cunts that rule the world.

And then along came Trump, a raving narcissist with more nuclear weapons than I can shake a stick at, at his finger tips.

They, the powers that be, just kill us off, as they ever have, but now they’ve lost patience with their former reticence about it, they have abandoned all pretence and Donald Trump is the last gasp of desperation and greed for no reason. The last global exercise of greed and hate for life.

I really hope that we are not all about to die in an apocalypse caused by the terminally stupid, but if we are, then the universe is going to have to come up with something better than cunt, because it hasn’t yet been invented.

All I hope is that I get given a twat bat in the after life and get to be part of a universal tide of vengeance that is much awaited and much needed to cause these people horrific pain, terror and fear for all eternity.

And above all, to mock them forever for their terminal stupidity that has no precedent in any meaningful form of life.

And ‘God’ will be on our side.

It is people like Trump who would want to own the mythical holy grail, because they are so stupid they think there will be power in such a cup or goblet and they want to possess it for themselves, like everything else. Do they really think that someone would have grabbed it at the time, to preserve it as a holy relic or because it was transformed into a source of any power? Someone as stupid as them?

Here’s the thing, these people who regard themselves as elites, that is, better than ordinary people, want to own the world and to do so they kill indiscriminately forgetting, in their stupidity and greed, that what makes the Earth unique, the only thing that makes it unique, is life. Remember when Madeleine Albright was being questioned about the imposition of sanctions on Iraq because of Saddam’s non existent weapons of mass destruction (WMD), she was told that 500,000 children had died as a result of the sanctions and asked if she thought the price of the deaths of all those children was worth it, she replied, “We think the price is worth it.”

George W Bush joked about not finding any WMD’s at a dinner party for the rich and powerful to much laughter and applause. Conservative MPs reacted with braying derision when Iain Duncan Smith was questioned over benefit related deaths.

Prior to 2010 it was unusual to hear the word evil used in terms of politics and world affairs, these days it is fairly common place. It’s a word of last resort when no other word can describe the unthinkable and yet they do this on a daily basis.

Remember Cameron walking away from being PM and an MP, with immediate effect? Tens of thousands of people dead through government policy during his time in office and he walked away to make his fortune, not least from making speeches to other like minded people.

Murderous intent by the ruling elites has escalated since the second world war, nothing in history compares to it. More bombs were dropped on Vietnam than during WWII reducing parts of Vietnam to what Noam Chomsky described as a moonscape. It is impossible to comprehend the murderous intent and actions of the ruling elites, nor their casual attitude to it. And perhaps even harder to comprehend is that people actually vote these people into power and the media celebrates them as the great and the good and if we speak out against them we can be prosecuted and punished for sedition or treason.

Who can or will speak out and oppose them if not us, the inconvenient masses? Where can dissent possibly come from if not from us? We work as unwitting slaves to those who amass unimaginable wealth and power and from our labour is war made, yes we pay for it all.

So if you think you have mental health issues living in this world, pat yourself on the back, you may live with misery on a daily basis but you’re also healthy. Those who are truly mad don’t even know it, they revel in their sense of privilege and power without conscience or regret. Bush and Blair are household names, yet they are genocidal maniacs.

Have you wondered about the punishment we’re taking from Brexit? It’s being inflicted by the markets and corporations who are the beneficiaries of globalisation, exploiting the global markets for profits. What do they care if workers in Asia have to be prevented from suicide with suicide nets or that they’ve caused the pound to tank?

There is wide spread derision for anyone who voted to leave Europe and the media has spun it that it was primarily on racist grounds. We live in a notionally representative democracy, but no such thing exists globally. We the people lose power with globalisation, having no say in it what so ever. Without a popular uprising it is nigh on impossible to hold our national governments to account, what say do we have over shutting down entire cities like Port Talbot and Redcar, to name but two, because steel can be made cheaper elsewhere through global exploitation?

What does globalisation have to do with us other than its wanton destructive power in which Britain is becoming increasingly atomised, a more divided nation in which poverty is escalating and where people can be deprived of the means of survival by government dictat? We the people did not make the global refugee crisis, and staying in or leaving Europe will not change it. We were in the EU when David Cameron called the desperate people fleeing to Europe a ‘swarm’ and did nothing to help. Was the referendum really about immigration or was that just hype to distract us from real issues?

We are spoon fed lies on a daily basis and the media has even had the temerity to call this the post-truth era. Rubbish!

They cannot so easily silence us any more nor hide their murderous intent towards us.

If there is any stability in the world it comes from us, ordinary people, going about our lives without murderous intent. We who help and support others. We who stock the food banks that those in power drive us to in desperation. We who desire to sustain life and not destroy it and who hope for a better future for our children and everyone. It is ordinary people who want peace. Remember it was Cameron who said, “For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens: as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone.” That is a measure of how bold and arrogant they now are. If there is to be any accounting it is not us who are answerable, if we are answerable for anything it must only be if we tolerate this in silence. And if we are silent, even then I don’t think we should judge too harshly, it is driven by misinformation, propaganda and lies and not by us. Being ignorant or ill informed is not the same as collaboration, those in power hide their real intent very well and the media, which supposedly informs the masses, largely serves their purposes. I am ignorant of more than I could know in a dozen lifetimes. Of all the knowledge and books in the world what I know probably ranks just above nothing.

Lastly, confronting the reality and truth of global despotism hurts us, it is hard to face the enormity of it. To confront the enormity of the death of 500,000 children as merely expedient, that one example alone is staggering and we are right to be staggered, we are right to want to recoil from the horror of it and we are right not to grasp or understand how any group of powerful people could do such a thing. And it is right that we feel dulled and are weakened in the face of reality and so much brutality because it hurts us and it is damned hard to deal with.

I burned out after four years of writing a letter a day to number 10 and have yet to recover from it. I have no complaints, I knew what I was doing and had several mini blowouts along the way. What would be more surprising is if I hadn’t. There is a cost to caring and it is a cost that must be borne willingly. It may be difficult to bear but if we do not, nothing gets done. We are the answer, if there is one, not the problem.

A letter a day to number 10. No 1,447

Saturday 28 May 2016.

Dear Mr Cameron,

I am sick and tired of fear and hate mongering. Your threat of war if we leave the EU, Boris Johnson’s argument against staying by comparing the EU to a Nazi superstate, the latest Osborne threat to pensions and pensioners if we leave, Priti Patel wanting to halve the ‘burden’ of the EU social and employment laws to give a guesstimated £4.3 billion boost to the economy on Brexit and create 60,000 new jobs without workers protections (we have more than enough job insecurity as it is).

Let’s not forget Zac Goldsmith and his shameful use of the 7/7 bombings against Sadiq Khan in the London mayoral election and especially Iain Duncan Smith’s terror campaign of sanctions on poor and vulnerable people and the subsequent deaths.

It rolls on and on, it’s been going on too long and it is a betrayal of the nation.

The latest breaking news is that there have been anonymous bomb threats to at least 27 schools up and down the country, many of them primary schools, threatening beheadings and shootings, forcing evacuations and, of course, a massive police response.

It is detestable that terrorism and modern warfare, which is itself terrorism, routinely target civilians. Despite all the weasel words, civilians and civil infrastructure are primary targets in modern warfare. This is the vilest kind of war for which governments and terrorist groups are guilty, though not in equal measures, state warfare far exceeds terrorism in civilian deaths across the world. Unicef reports: “Civilian fatalities in wartime climbed from 5 per cent at the turn of the century, to 15 per cent during World War I, to 65 per cent by the end of World War II, to more than 90 per cent in the wars of the 1990s.” Children are not spared as Unicef notes, “It is estimated that 500,000 under-five-year-olds died as a result of armed conflicts in 1992 alone.” Under fives – military targets!?! Half a million children is not a mistake!

And who can forget Madeleine Albright’s response when asked if the half million children who died in Iraq (more than died in Hiroshima) due to sanctions was worth it, “I think this is a very hard choice,” she said, “but the price – we think the price is worth it.”

What makes me sick to my bones is not just that school children are under threat from filthy anonymous cowards, but that in asking myself who would benefit from such an obscenity I now have to acknowledge that government itself has a stake in such fear and terror tactics. I have to question just how low would my government stoop in spreading terror across this nation? And you know what, I will never forgive you that such a thought would ever occur to me, but you have brought it on yourselves. You are as guilty as sin if for no other reason than the lies and fear which you have sown.

A government that lies to the people renders itself illegitimate.
