Tyranny's Victims

(Letter from me in Daily Telegraph 27 Oct 2005)
Six Chinese asylum seekers detained in Villawood are so distraught they have been on a hunger strike for over a week now. The "change of culture" promised by the Vast One have obviously not materialised. How can it be considered Australian (or Christian) to jail these people for fleeing from the evil (torturing, and murdering) Communist regime?

"War against drugs" is "war against people".

"War against Drugs" is War against People, targetting the young, the poor , the indigenous, and the counter-culture. Not one dope plant has ever been prosecuted. Not one tab of LSD has been strip searched and abused. Not one unprescribed valium pill has been terrorised on public transport by sniffer dogs. Not one gram of amphetamine has been sentenced to jail. Not one ecstacy tablet has had it's front door kicked in in the middle of the night. Not one cap of smack has been taken away from its children and threatened by a uniformed bully with a gun. Not one vial of methadone stays locked in its house, terrified of being harrassed if they go out, simply because of what they need to do to get through the day.

Loose Change www.letsroll911.org

It's shocking in implication, as shocking as the US murdering over three thousand of its own citizens to justify two wars for oil. It's no harder to believe than the fairy story about one passport, made of paper, surviving a plane crash so bad the theoretcially indestructible black box was destroyed. It's no harder to believe than Usama suddenly putting on twenty pounds to claim responsibility for 911, then shedding it just as fast to deny that people who pray to God five times a day and are indoctinated as to the inviolability of women and children and the sacredness of human life would commit multiple atrocities. It's no harder than watching your own video of 911, if you have one (I have, cos me video was set to record Star Trek, and instead got something far more far fectched!), and observing the timed explosives that collapsed the towers as the commentators remark how like a staged demolition it is.

If you can't imagine any of this being possible, can you imagine a leader blowing up a public building and blaming "enemies of the state" and thereby grabbing more power? It happened with the Reichstag, with then popular politician Adolf Hitler. Or can you imagine the state being aware of a plot to blow up parliament, but letting it go ahead, so it could demonise the would-be bombers and everyone of the same religion and grab all of the property of that religion? No? Well, that happened four hundred years ago.

Remember, remember the fifth of November,
gunpowder, treason and plot,
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes,
'twas his intent
to blow up the King and the Parliament.
Three score barrels of powder below,
Poor old England to overthrow:
By God's providence he was catch'd
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, make the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!
Hip hip hoorah!
(traditionally the following verses were also sung, but they have fallen out of favour because of their content)
A penny loaf to feed the Pope.
A farthing o' cheese to choke him.
A pint of beer to rinse it down.
A faggot of sticks to burn him.
Burn him in a tub of tar.
Burn him like a blazing star.
Burn his body from his head.
Then we'll say ol' Pope is dead.
Hip hip hoorah!
Hip hip hoorah!

The Muslims of today are being demonised and persecuted as the Catholics of yesteryear were.

If you can't cope with the idea that our leaders are either complicit in mass murder or are the engineers of mass murder, then you can become/remain one of their pawns/victims. Or you can face the truth, and take responsibility for your own life and family and community.
