I am sick of hearing fast asleep people talk of the freedoms and advantages that we have in the UK. A nation that believes in freedom and fairness they insist but is this true? That depends on who you are or more to the point how much money you have! Our free nation arrested me for growing weed and they destroyed hundreds of pounds worth of equipment that I invested in to it.
I have an addiction it is a fucking weakness unfortunately for me it is the wrong addiction and weakness. I could be an alcoholic and there would be no punishment implied by the the law. I am free to be a homosexual and free (in fact encouraged) to get a job. But I can’t grow a herb in my own house and for myself.
This is not freedom this is fascism and a dictatorship. Yeah you are free if you are happy to work your life away for minimum wage, pay your taxes and conform unfortunately that is where your freedom ends.
Freedom of speech on the Internet is dead as is the freedom to live your life undisturbed by the control freaks that some people call our government.. They harass, monitor and attack us daily and when we fight back we are dismissed as extremists.
I have come to the conclusion that we are free! Free to do what they tell us to do, free to read what they tell us to read, free to watch what they tell us to watch, free to say what they want us to say and free to believe what they tell us to believe.
Think of it like this; There are two prisoners in the same cell one wants to exercise, read his letters and read books. The other is happy sitting in his cell doing nothing all day everyday. They are not allowed to read and exercise or even step outside the cell. One is angry and realizes he has no freedom. The other is happy and might even deceive himself to believe he has freedom because he has the freedom to do what he is doing. But essentially he is still a prisoner with no freedom just an illusion of freedom. He could carry on happily for months even years but one day that happy and willing ignorant man is going to notice that he is just a prisoner with no freedom at all. When he decides he now wants his freedom or to do something different other than obeying his orders he is going to be in for a shock and now its too late.
Ignoring the freedoms being taken from other people will one day come back at hit people in the face when they realize that freedom has also been taken from themselves..
