Mark is always going to be welcome here, some call them rant`s I call them need to be said, how fucking much more of their shit can we take eh? how much? not joking, how fucking much?
In an amazing twist of events I can now present you with some startling truth that will blow you away (some of you that is), some may recall that I posted a little tale about RBS a few weeks ago linky to that artical http://wakeuporkney.wordpress.com/2012/01/31/rbs-the-truth/ , well in this next vid under the link bellow you will find evidence of my findings plus something more, I offer you this snippet for a taste of some controversy.
“Every day before I start work, but still on company time…. I like to surf the net and try to find my next blog. Well, today I read the mother of mothers from a friend who sent me a very interesting link that at first, I thought couldn’t be true, must be a joke! BUT NO, a British Lord (James of Blackheath) claims he has proof of a 15 TRILLION $$ swindle, a scam or a fraud. Let’s just quickly look at that number, 150000000000. That is a big number, a number so big that it hurts to imagine all those zeros. Now imagine if you had lost that much money, OUCH. It seems that there is only one man on the planet that can do that; Yohannes Riyadi. If the story is true, then he is by far the richest man on the planet. In fact, if true he pretty much owned and lost the damn place.”
Hmm another one not in the fucking news!! In an update it is finally in the news but down played as per usual.
Efforts are continuing to control a gas leak from a platform in the Elgin field of the North Sea. Operators Total E&P UK said “a well control problem” occurred on the wellhead platform in the Central Graben area, 240km off Aberdeen, at 12:15.

IT’S AN ILLUSION
Members of parliament are in fact, ”DIRECTORS OF A CORPORATION” which will keep heading in the same direction no matter who is elected.
POLITICS: Pertaining to POLICY, or the ADMINISTRATION of the GOVERNMENT. POLICY: A plan or course of action, as of a GOVERNMENT, POLITICAL PARTY or CORPORATION- a WRITTEN CONTRACT or a CERTIFICATE of INSURANCE.
ACTS of PARLIAMENT become STATUTES; PRIMARY LEGISLATION which in turn are ENACTED and ENFORCED by STATUTORY INSTRUMENTS; SECONDARY LEGISLATION.
COUNCIL TAX is a STATUTORY INSTRUMENT ENACTED on 1st April 1993 under its PRIMARY LEGISLATION the LOCAL GOVERNMENT FINANCE ACT 1992.
STATUTORY: Created, defined or relating to a STATUTE; conforming to a statute.
INSTRUMENT: A WRITTEN LEGAL document such as a CONTRACT, lease, deed will or bond.
SOCIETY: the SOCIALLY DOMINANT members of a community, a SOCIETY is a number of PERSONS united together by mutual CONSENT, in order to deliberate, determine and act jointly for some COMMON PURPOSE.
CONTRACT: an agreement between two or more PERSONS that CREATES or MODIFIES an existing RELATIONSHIP.
OFFER, CONSIDERATION and ACCEPTANCE must exist for a CONTRACT to be made.
CONSTITUTION; The fundamental RULES, written or unwritten that establishes the CHARACTER of a GOVERNMENT by defining the basic principles to which a SOCIETY must CONFORM.
You were not given a choice if you wanted to join this SOCIETY; it was made for you at a time when you could not express a choice.
STATUTE: A LEGISLATIVE RULE of SOCIETY given the FORCE of law by the CONSENT of the GOVERNED, a RULE, as of a CORPORATION.
STATUTES are not LAWS
From the neuter of Latin: STATUS: The LEGAL CHARACTER or condition of a PERSON or thing. It is totally imaginary, not real.
UNITED KINGDOM CORPORATION
The UNITED KINGDOM is a CORPORATION and has employees. The employees are not just civil servants but everyone, if you have a N.I. number you too are an employee of this CORPORATION.
COMPANY POLICY of this CORPORATION requires you, as an EMPLOYEE to pay TAX and follow all the LEGISLATIVE RULES of that CORPORATION in this case STATUTES.
As in any COMPANY, if you break the RULES you will be DISCIPLINED under that COMPANY’S LEGISLATION.
The POLICE of the UNITED KINGDOM CORPORATION are all COMPANY’S too, run for PROFIT.
As CORPORATE POLICY ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS their job is to ENFORCE the RULES of the CORPORATION.
The COURTS of the UNITED KINGDOM CORPORATION are all COMPANY’S too, if you break the RULES they will invite (SUMMONS) you to their place of business to discuss your punishment, except they are not inviting YOU, you have been deceived into thinking that its YOU they’re inviting.
Even the highest COURT in the land (THE HOUSE OF LORDS) is a CORPORATION.
The POLICEMAN and the CORPORATE ENFORCEMENT OFFICER
The POLICE MAN (HUMAN BEING) has a duty under COMMON LAW to serve and protect and uphold the COMMON LAW.
The POLICE OFFICER (FICTION) is a CORPORATE EMPLOYEE a REVENUE COLLECTOR who ENFORCES STATUTES.
You are in COMMON LAW JURISDICTION this means that no CIVIL LAW STATUTE applies unless you CONSENT to it.
POLICE are a COMPANY which exists to make PROFIT. They PROFIT from you by enforcing STATUTES on you, not LAWS, POLICY.
A language can be created and used by a SOCIETY; a CORPORATION can be such a SOCIETY. LEGALESE is such a language, it is English but some words have VERY different meanings… LEGALESE is the language of the LAW SOCIETY.
Example; MUST is synonymous with MAY (if someone from a CORPORATION says “you MUST” they are actually giving you a choice, because they can’t force you, they are not allowed to because it’s not LAW it’s only POLICY).
Example; SUMMONS is synonymous with INVITATION. When you get a SUMMONS from a COURT of supposedly LAW you are actually being INVITED to a CORPORATE place of business to discuss how much money you are going to give that CORPORATE place of business.
Example; UNDERSTAND is synonymous with STAND UNDER. If I say “do you UNDERSTAND” and you reply “yes” that means you have given me authority over you. It’s as simple as that.
MINISTRY OF JUSTICE. Also traded as MAGISTRATES COURTS, every one of them is a CORPORATION running for PROFIT.
If you go to COURT (CORPORATE place of BUSINESS) you are asked immediately for your NAME, they even presume to know who you are and will ask as such…
MR SMITH? — MR is the title of something with LEGAL PERSONALLITY (STATUS)
You were named by your parents but they didn’t call you MR John Smith.
If you reply “yes” to the NAME you have agreed to REPRESENT the FICTIONAL ENTITY with LEGAL PERSONALITY’S i.e. Mr JOHN SMITH/ Mr Smith
A man cannot be acted on by STATUTES, nor can a woman, a flesh and blood human being, STATUTES only apply to the FICTIONAL ENTITY with a LEGAL PERSONALITY’S.
Every TITLE in this land is a FICTION e.g. Mr, LORD, REV etc because it doesn’t apply to a flesh and blood human being, it is the LEGAL STATUS.
NATURAL or COMMON LAW applies to you, inherent LAW. You know inherently what is right or wrong.
COMMERCIAL POLICY (UCC), CIVIL POLICY and POLITICAL POLICY apply to the FICTION but they need the flesh and blood human being to REPRESENT it because the LEGAL PERSONALITY’S does not exist.
A COMPANY exists only because a piece of paper says it does but it’s not REAL.
COMMON LAW vs. STATUTE RULES/POLICY
The only basic principles that any people of any nation need to adhere to are those of NATURAL LAW which are mirrored in COMMON LAW – Never cause HARM or LOSS. This covers every eventuality. COMMON LAW applies to a man or a woman. STATUTE RULES apply to the PERSON only when the man or woman CONSENTS to REPRESENT the PERSON
CONSENT can be given by IN-ACTION as well as ACTION.
Within COMMON LAW exists the word JUSTICE within STATUTE RULES you will just receive SUMMARY JUDGEMENT- you broke the RULES of the CONTRACT- you lose.
You are a man or a woman, you have a PERSON you exist NATURALLY, and you are subject to COMMON LAW JURISDICTION. (JURIS-of law. DICTION-the use of words) you were created by god, nature the divine whatever…..
You must never cause another HARM or LOSS or commit FRAUD.
You have free and unlimited ability to CONTRACT and settle debt in private under COMMERCIAL LAW.
You have been labelled through deception with a fictitious entity the all caps NAME on your birth certificate.
The fictitious you was created by GOVERNMENT.
The fictional entity is subject to CIVIL POLICY (TAX etc) under STATUTE.
The fictitious entity does business in the public and is controlled by CIVIL LAW and CORPORATE COURTS.
WHAT IS A PERSON
They are inviting a PERSON created by the UNITED KINGDOM CORPORATION. Your PERSON was created when your birth was REGISTERED and is evidenced by your BIRTH CERTIFICATE.
Man created GOVERNMENT which in turn created PERSONS. Your PERSON is not you; it is a LEGAL FICTION which you are falsely identifying with because you have been deceived massively. You don’t get to say what its RIGHTS and DUTIES are, the UNITED KINGDOM CORPORATION does but it has to MISLEAD into doing so by DECEPTION.
Includes natural PERSON, FIRM. CO-PARTNERSHIP, ASSOCIATION, LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY or CORPORATION- LEGAL PERSONALITY’S
(Defining a word with the same word is failing to define anything)
PERSON is defined as a FICTION in black’s law 3rd edition.
THE CREATION OF A PERSON
When you were born your mother/father SUBMITTED a BIRTH CERTIFICATE REGISTRATION APPLICATION FORM
In the FORMULATION of any LIMITED COMPANY/CORPORATION there is always a CERTIFICATE OF REGISTRATION to create its LEGAL PERSONALITY’S. Your fictional PERSON known as Mr, Mrs or Ms is created by the same means
SUBMIT A REGISTRATION APPLICATION
When you SUBMIT you are bending to another’s will.
When you REGISTER you are handing over LEGAL TITLE of what you are REGISTERING to whoever you are REGISTERING it to, you are REGISTERING to ACKNOWLEDGING or TRANSFERRING the AUTHORITY to another by this PROCESS.
When you APPLY, which means to beg, the assumption is made that you know exactly what you are begging for by whom or what you are APPLYING to and you know exactly what you are willing to give up for it, and most of the time you VOLUNTEERED your APPLICATION and you were not forced to APPLY.
BIRTH CERTIFICATE. How the PERSON is created as a “BONDED SLAVE”
You get a CERTIFIED COPY you don’t get the ORIGINAL.
NAME of the PERSON being created- CAPITALISED SURNAME is a FICTION
NAME of PERSON father/mother CAPITALISED SURNAMES is the INFORMANT, they have the QUALIFICATION needed to be able to INFORM on the child being born.
At the bottom of the BIRTH CERTIFICATE is a DECLARATION, a declaration is in COMMON LAW (a sworn oath of a man or woman) a DECLARATION from a man or woman to prove a man or woman was PRESENT to REPRESENT the PERSON needed to create the new PERSONS LEGAL PERSONALITY’S.
Then you REGISTER the BIRTH CERTIFICATE to a CORPORATION the GENERAL REGISTER OFFICE.
REGISTRATION AND YOUR CHILDREN
To this day REGISTRATION still means the same thing i.e. the TRANSFER of LEGAL TITLE to the body you have REGISTERED it with.
As you have seen the worst possible way that this process could have been abused is in the REGISTRATION of BIRTHS
A simple show of how your child no longer belongs to you is this; mandatory vaccinations, mandatory schooling, holidaying the children when they say you can and not before…..they tell you how to manage their PROPERTY and if you don’t do it their way their APPOINTED GUARDIANS take your children away: the SOCIAL SERVICES PLC a CORPORATION.
You have no claim whatsoever to your children because you’ve been duped.
PLEASE CONSIDER THIS
Could the GOVERNMENT take your car away and crush it LAWFULLY if you actually owned it? It would be totally UNLAWFUL so in the process of REGISTERING your vehicle they dupe you into handing over LEGAL TITLE of that vehicle (ownership) and you get a V5 DOCUMENT as the REGISTERED KEEPER (a PERMISSION to use it as long as it is used in ACCORDANCE with all their RULES) If they did not dupe you into this the very ACT of taking and crushing your PROPERTY would be a CRIME in COMMON LAW. Also by REGISTERING it you, as STATED AGREE to ABIDE by their RULES and do so in their SOCIETY, this is how they LEVY the fuel DUTY, road TAX, MOT REQUIREMENT.
You then REGISTER it to another CORPORATION, DEPARTMENT FOR TRANSPORT also traded as DVLA.
When you REGISTER something, anything, you give up ownership of it and instead you get a CERTIFICATE OF TITLE, this is worthless and this is why you own nothing not even your children, house, car etc.
FIXED PENALTY NOTICES issued by CORPORATIONS
So why are there so many FIXED PENALTY NOTICES being given for the most ludicrous reasons? Parking in a place a CORPORATION deems you can’t. Speed cameras’, not completing a SORN the list is endless, but what are these NOTICES in the real world being ISSUED by these CORPORATIONS which never stop dreaming up reasons for PENALISING you. PENALISED by way of FORFIET: (something surrendered or subject to surrender as a punishment for a breach of CONTRACT)
FPN: An OFFER to accept an ADHESION CONTRACT.
ADHESION CONTRACT: A type of CONTRACT a LEGALLY BINDING AGREEMENT between two PARTIES to do a certain thing in which one side has all the bargaining power and uses it to write the CONTRACT primarily to his, her or its advantage.
A NOTICE is not a BILL, a NOTICE is not a DEMAND, and A NOTICE is nothing more than an OFFER to discuss the CONTRACT the OFFERER is trying to force upon your PERSON. This is simply a tool for REVENUE COLLECTION.
The true reason why these FPNs are forced upon your PERSON is simply to maintain the ILLUSION that they have control over your LIFE, FORTUNE, and FREEDOM because you FEAR their ability to take away from you something you deem valuable.
Peacefully resist all claims against your PERSON by refusing to CONSENT to the CORPORATIONS POLICY
Always ask when stopped by a POLICY ENFORCEMENT OFFICER “Am I OBLIGED to answer your questions” “Under what AUTHORITY and what LAW are you ACTING” if they say to you “Its under this or that LAW” and you can prove its only an ACT or STATUTE, remind them that “failure to differentiate between a STATUTE and LAW is GROSS NEGLIGENCE which is equivalent to the COMMON LAW CRIME of FRAUD. This applies to anyone who tries to enforce a STATUTE upon you no matter who they are.
YOU ARE A MAN/WOMAN IN LAWFUL REBELLION YOU ARE NOT A PERSON
You are a man or a woman you are not a PERSON The legal world is the same as your PERSON it is a FICTION an ILLUSION that does not exist in the REAL WORLD That is why the CORPORATE EMPLOYEES must get the man or woman to REPRESENT the PERSON before a contract can be formed. They will ask you your NAME and ADDRESS and if you give it to them they will have JOINDER
There is no LAW saying you have to give your NAME and ADDRESS, if you do give it to them you have said “yes I am the PERSON
Remember, there is no JUSTICE in this country only SUMMARY JUDGEMENT, for every COURT, even the highest in the land is a FOR PROFIT CORPORATION which is part of THE UNITED KINGDOM CORPORATION.
The Real News Network is always a great place to visit for truthful reporting, and this next vid proves that.
Just fucking watch it eh!!
This has just hit my inbox. (for background info go to the links bellow)
In light of what your government and media have told you in regards of RBS, YOU HAVE BEEN DISTRACTED, sheep would be a word well used around this blog for you (not nice eh? grow up and wake up!) but the truth was never meant to pull any punches was it, so now its time to do something about it, now its YOUR turn, just do as requested above the nice little photo and you can’t go wrong.
So far, all that most of you know in the news right now is that a certain Mr Stephen Hester (as shown bellow) and his buddy Sir Philip Hampton (<< under link) both “gave back” their fucking huge bonuses, and you would be right, but all of that is fuck all compared to what I am about to share with you.
As ever here if you see something highlighted in BLUE its a link for you to discover what I am talking about, all links here are as safe as can be (I found them safe anyway) and will open a new window or tab so you don’t lose this page.
Ok so enough with the trivial stuff and onto the nitty-gritty, the current total UK GDP is currently about 2.2 Trillion dollars (according to the World Bank), now hold that thought.
The UK Taxpayer own`s 83% of RBS, also a thought to be holding on to.
So we bailed them out to the tune of AT-LEAST £142 billion which is 223.6784 US$ and we own 83% of RBS, wow, just fucking wow, but wait we are missing something, something you have not been told.
In the years 2007 to 2011 the Federal Reserve Bank gave RBS a little bit of cash to (how much you say), £350 fucking billion which is 541 billion US$ (yes that’s right, over half a trillion dollars) that’s how much, now back to those thoughts you have been holding, go, go now.
Back so soon?
Did you want proof?
Here have a link to the Federal Reserve Banks own report, has it hit you yet? Let me make it easy for you (again) see pick bellow.
If you never read anything again, read these next two;
Yay!! you made it this far!!, so what question do you need to be asking your-self right about now? may I make a suggestion? Why the fuck are we suffering with high unemployment, high prices, can’t get a loan, can’t get a mortgage but to name a few, when this one fucking bank got a minimum of ONE FUCKING TRILLION between us and the Fed????? for fucks sake!!
Sorry, my well deserved rant is now over.
Do you still care about that 1 million quid bonus?
If yes, you are not paying attention, if no (well done), spread this far and wide.
And now for some links.
Bellow you will find a small eye watering snippet from the Federal Reserve, all amounts are in TRILLIONS & BILLIONS, try to understand the implications of those amounts, try to understand that YOU will be paying for them, in the case of the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) we tax payers are meant to be the ones who bailed them out? we are certainly responsible for its debts I recommend you download the full pdf (found at the end of this post), go to page 131 and take it all in, 16 trillion dollars is more than the GDP of America, hell its more than the total GDP America has made in over 200+ years.
A huge read can be found >>>> here <<<< which will explain some hard-hitting TRUTHS to you, everything you thought you knew is a lie, read it or ignore it, it’s up to you, this truth will scare the crap out of you, but know this, it’s all about to end this information has been kept from you to protect a system that sucks money straight from you its theft on a global scale.
You wont find any of this mentioned in the press, this is the biggest thing you will read so far this year, I strongly suggest you follow the link above and research this, you wont be disappointed, actual documents can be found here >>>>PROOF<<<<

This seems to be aimed at those who did not know (in part anyway), the vid comes from The Amorphous Council of Autonomous Beings.
This one just had to be passed along, “UK death rate similar to African nations” according to the office of national statistics, that just blew me away! but how surprised am I really, knowing that the whole fucking place is just a dedication to the corporations that really run the country.
The article is from PressTV with a few snippets here for your consideration.
“The rate of mortality in the poorest areas of Britain is reportedly as high as in some crisis-hit African nations, official figures have revealed.”
“According to the records released by Office for National Statistics (ONS), the death rate in the country’s most isolated parts is as high as 1,500 deaths per 100,000 people in one year.”
“However, the rate of mortality in Rwanda, in central and eastern Africa, is 1,427 and in Botswana, in southern Africa, is 1,452, World Health Organization reported.”
“They also declare that poor diet and air pollution affect the lives of people living in the country’s crisis hit areas.”
Its fucking out-bastard-standing to know that some of our own UK folk have it only slightly better than some of the worlds most vulnerable.
What ever the cause of this statistic matters not really, I used to live in some of those areas mentioned and can tell you first hand that a combination of poverty and pollution is to blame, what does matter though is the fact that none of us really know whats hidden buried beneath our feet, it’s all hush-hush, you can bet that our government know though, but add into that social deprivation and you have a vision of our future, good eh!!
Sounds more like war to me, what do you think??
What do you want? it does not come with pleasure that I report our impending doom (no really).
Just a small quote from here http://www.zerohedge.com/ yea ok its the full thing, but go there you might learn something.
“While certainly humorous, entertaining and very, very childish, the recent war of words between France and Britain has the potential to become the worst thing to ever happen to Europe.
Actually, make that the world and modern civilization. Why? Because while we sympathize with England, and are stunned by the immature petulant response from France and its head banker Christian Noyer to the threat of an imminent S&P downgrade of its overblown AAA rating, the truth is that France is actually 100% correct in telling the world to shift its attention from France and to Britain. So why is this bad.
Because as the chart below shows, if there is anything the global financial system needs, is for the rating agencies, bond vigilantes, and lastly, general public itself, to realize that the UK’s consolidated debt (non-financial, financial, government and household) to GDP is… just under 1000%. That’s right: the UK debt, when one adds to its more tenable sovereign debt tranche all the other debt carried on UK books (and thus making the transfer of private debt to the public balance sheet impossible), is nearly ten times greater than the country’s GDP.
To call that “game over” is an insult to game overs everywhere. So here’s the bottom line: France should quietly and happily accept a downgrade, because the worst that could happen would be a few big French banks collapsing, and that’s it. If, on the other hand, the UK becomes the center of attention (recall this is the same UK that allows unlimited rehypothecation of worthless assets, and the same UK that unleashed the juggernaut known as AIG-FP’s Joe Cassano – after all there is a reason why the UK has 600% its GDP in financial liabilities – financial innovation always goes there where it is least regulated), then this island, which far more so than the US is the true center of the global banking ponzi scheme, will suddenly find itself at the mercy of the market. At that point the only question is whether the vigilantes will dare to take down the UK, as said take down will result in an implosion in the very fabric of modern finance, much more so than what even a full collapse of France could ever achieve, or if due to the certain Mutual Assured Destruction that would follow a coordinated UK onslaught, the market will simply very quietly proceed to ignore the elephant in the room.”
We are so so fucked.

Ok so trying (but failing) to spare you a novel sized post let me have a go at summing things up a bit, the NWO historically has been a strive for a continuation of power presented to you under the mask of unity and peace, these pointers are relevent here because this is exactly what the NWO is.
Checking the offensive use of force (by force)
Promoting collective security (by force) and,
Using great power cooperation (by force).
Most of the rest involves your continued loss of liberty, militarization of the police, economic colaps to promote a solution that you pay for, sounding familiar yet? it should, it’s all for your control, you happy slaves you. (ok not so happy slaves)
If you’re not getting it yet, try this, World Government, it’s a lot to take in but needed to understand where we are right now.
It’s all about capital.
It’s not enough for the elite 1% to be masters of economic capital (cash and financial assets) alone, and in fact there are three other types of capital which are equally significant: social, cultural and symbolic capital. It was French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu who introduced this extended definition of capital. He said of capital that it applied “to all the goods material and symbolic, without distinction, that present themselves as rare and worthy of being sought after in a particular social formation”.
1) Social capital. Think of this as the groups and networks to which you belong, and the quality of the relationships you enjoy. Do you belong to the elite Harvard circle or the Bullingdon Club? Do you get an invite to Bohemian Grove? Do you mix with millionaires, with politicians and celebrities? Who will help you when the chips are down? Who will support you?
Do you think the people born into privilege ever have “hard times”? Bourdieu described social capital as “the aggregate of the actual or potential resources which are linked to possession of a durable network of more or less institutionalized relationships of mutual acquaintance and recognition.” Most of us have low social capital.
We don’t know anyone significant or with any meaningful resources. Our networks are transient, low-level and can’t help us to set up a business or make any real difference in our lives. It’s the elite who define all important forms of social capital, and they establish exclusive groups for the rich in order to perpetuate their elite status. Everyone wants to join their groups; they have no interest in joining yours.
2) Cultural capital. Think of this as the extent to which you share the cultural values of the elite (they are the ones who shape the cultural values). Do you like what they like? Do you like opera, ballet, classical music, modern art, fine wine, high cuisine, literary fiction, exclusive holidays in luxury resorts where hoi polloi never go? If you want to have a higher status in society, you have to be knowledgeable about the cultural values of the top 1%. If you share their values, they might invite you into their charmed circle.
If all you can talk about is “working class” culture, they will regard you as a barbarian and you will never get any invites. “Social climbing” is all about adopting the necessary values to allow you to mix easily with the ruling elite.
If you have low economic capital but high cultural capital, you might be able to ascend the social ladder to some extent. If you have low cultural capital but high economic capital, you will always be regarded as “vulgar”, as “new money”.
So, cultural capital is about “table manners”, the extent to which you can exhibit refined taste (such taste being dictated by the value system of the elite, which is designed to exclude 99% of the people). Bourdieu refers to cultural capital most especially in relation to education.
That’s the primary arena where you can adopt the values of the elite and gain a higher status for yourself. If you reject education, you are unlikely to acquire any cultural capital.
You will be more like Tony Montana in Scarface – an uncouth, violent thug with no class. Most parents are clueless about how to acquire cultural capital, and so their children are equally ignorant. You don’t get it by eating junk food, watching TV and playing video games.
Cultural capital – non-financial social nous; knowing what the elite like – can help you with your networking (social capital) and then lead to the acquisition of greater economic capital because you will get a better job than those lacking cultural capital. Understanding cultural capital is the best route to social mobility for anyone outside the privileged elite.
Cultural capital opens the doors that would otherwise be locked. But, crucially, it’s all about embracing the values of a profoundly elitist and snobbish group who despise ordinary people. Why should you have to play that game in order to get on in the world? And what would it say about you if you did play along?
3) Symbolic capital. This is perhaps most important of all because it targets the imagination. Consider the “Royal Wedding” in the UK. Think of all the pomp, splendour and grandeur put on show, the projection of the power and glory of the British Establishment. All of this is designed to emphasize the legitimacy of the regime and to show any republicans that when they denounce the Queen, they stand opposed to the whole British nation.
Think of the importance of the American flag and the Star Spangled Banner anthem to ordinary Americans. Think of the power of the Koran over the collective Muslim mind. Think of Ferrari cars, Rolex watches, designer labels and so on. People crave certain consumer goods not because they have great intrinsic value but because they are priceless in terms of symbolic value. Everyone wants the symbols that impress others.
People are obsessed with signs and symbols. We are all judging each other according to the signs and symbols we have on show. These are the basis of STATUS, and underpin the perpetual status war in which we are all engaged. Everyone wants to have the signs and symbols associated with the highest status, so the rich are always the winners in the status war.
Symbolic capital is all about prestige, honour, recognition, glory, status, your place in the pecking order.
Personally I WANT a NWO, I just don’t want theirs, fuck em, fuck em all.
He is right you know, chunkymark pretty much sums it up here.
Fer Indy, I know its a little early but if you get a smile out of it its well worth it.
This is one of those “oh fuck” moments, enjoy the vid and sleep well eh.
This next post stems from a mystery email sent to me last night,
Ok try this to start you off, the letter below concerns housing benefit but can easily apply to any of the cuts we are facing.
Digest some of this, take your time now.
And consider sending them this;
(C/o) address (near) postcode
Blah blah day Month 2011
Re ref: CC;
All staff Dear arsehole – Head of cocksucking and blowing – Public Servant
Thank you for your recent letter dated blah blahday Month 2011 and your concern regarding my estate name: JOHN DOE as owned by the living man known as John. As you are aware I have not agreed to any purported changes taking place to Housing Benefit / Local Housing Allowance.
Any changes you / public servant staff may implement without my explicit consent: proof of contract signed by me outlining the explicit changes will be considered a serious breach of contract and as a public servant will result in you / the council agreeing to be liable for any / all rent arrears incurred as a result of any changes made without explicit consent, as well as damages I suffer as a result..
I accept your admission that you haven’t included a copy of the supposed explicit contract stating specific changes along with your letter because one doesn’t exist and as a result your letter is construed as coercion to accept a new contract which I believe to also be malfeasance of office.
I accept your acknowledgement of me as man and that I have unlimited value. Should you damage or coerce any other man or woman in the same manner, as a public servant you agree the terms herein apply to all liabilities they incur as a result also as stated in this agreement.
It is your responsibility to notify future Head of cocksuking and blowjob or any other titles created for similar roles in the capacity of public servant or any other Public Servants / the involvement of third parties the matter of their liability to this agreement as it affects them also as they too become liable parties / co conspirators and this does not deem you liability resolved
Thanks you for your time and agreement.

Ok so there is no such thing as occupy MSM (at the moment), but why? MSM lies to you all the time but don’t go believing me do a quick search on YouTube or Google and you will see what I am talking about.
MSM (Main Stream Media) are the bed fellows of corporate governments who are only there to shape and mould/mold your thought and opinions to suit an agenda that they need your consent on, I could defer you to the pre war in Iraq programming that we all had but you don’t need any reminders over that do you, you can now see the lies on the TV and in the news papers can’t you? what was that, you can’t see the lies!? an excellent article can be found here detailing some shocking stuff you don’t dare admit to>>> linky and here>>> another linky
Look MSM tells you what the government tell them to say, every time the government`s want a war or a conflict they condition you with information about the place to be attacked well before the attack, they do this by demonizing the leaders and or out-and-out lies about our own security being under threat by these nations, and it certainly does not end there, they as you saw in Libya will even side with a small group of fighters within that country to perpetuate and enhance that lie, all we see here in our homes are blood, bodies and oppression.
You would think that “ok they do lie in those situations” and leave it at that, but you would be wrong to, MSM and their lies stretch right into your home to include your life to, government policy and legislation is all run past your mind in one way or another, wether it be a snippet on/in the news or a full section on/in them, your programming will come in a certain format that your brain can easily remember but you will not at first be able to recal, how many times have they slipped things past you like that eh?, we can all remember saying (after the fact) “oh I remember seeing or reading something about that” when talking about a bit of law or policy we don’t like can’t we, but of course by then its to late.
So why can’t anyone occupy MSM? it seems to me that they are the ones that perpetuate the lie, they are the ones that demonize you in line with the governments mandate, they are the ones that suppress and avoid information that would normally help you steer your life in the best direction for you as a human, they are the ones that pick which advertising you watch between their programmes, just like in the computer world, they don’t call it programming for nothing.
Social programming has been around since well before the invention of the TV, it’s a well-known concept that we don’t like to believe happens to us and who could blame us, we like to think that we know our own minds don’t we, sorry folks but most of us don’t, we simply accept everything we are told and carry on with our lives safe in the knowledge that our government and press know best, it’s a shitty world and our leaders have all the answers for us, we don’t even need our own opinions any more, and at this point you wonder why we cant get our humanity deserving stories in the press, if we could, the changes we all need to take place would have long ago, but our stories go against the grain of the politicians and corporations so we stand little to fuck all chance.
So as protesters who know everything about how the world should be (so they say), I ask you again.
WHY ARE WE NOT OCCUPYING MSM??
So here we are at a proverbial defining moment in time where we have tens of thousands of good folk protesting all over this fucked up planet, but where will it go? what will end it? questions like that may at the moment be difficult to answer but answered they have to be, well soon any way, I look to the past to see our future and hope it does not go the same way, but hell look at you guys camping in tents thinking you are making a difference, you are brave and you are noble, I respect you for what you are doing.
Look to the past and learn what your fathers told you, if you cannot you will fail, at the moment you are doing what they did and failing like they failed, listen to them and understand what they are saying, your brave and noble fight is lacking in something, they know what it is, but do you?
This short post was hard to write as I deeply respect you all within the occupy movement, I just needed to give you food for thought, maybe you will understand where I am coming from.
LONG LIVE THE REVOLUTION !!!
This next vid has been doing the rounds for quite a while now and most Americans in the know will have seen it, but I ask here for the rest of the world to give it a shot, why?, because the system the Fed uses is the same system most of the world uses, a complicated issue made simple with cartoons lol mirrored from http://www.youtube.com/user/westiesworld4u
So if this removal of your support from the big bad banking system seems fruitless bear in mind that we at Occupy The Banks are not the only ones doing it, you’re looking at hundreds of thousands world-wide expect them.
