The governments of USA, UK and Europe appear to be fighting many wars. They claim to be fighting a war on terrorism, extremism, hate speech, drugs, fake news. They fight secret wars, drug wars, information wars, we could be approaching a war on Russia while still fighting Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, the Falklands. They do spend a lot of our taxes on fighting these wars.
But surely thats OK isn’t it? After all these wars are being fought for us and against enemies of freedom, right? Wrong, if they were fighting these wars for us they would be fighting wars on poverty, exploitation or oppression! I believe these wars do not exist and there is only one war that is real, that is the war rich/establishment vs poor/the rest of us. They call them things like the “war on drugs” but what does the war on drugs lead to? It leads to harsh punishments to drug addicts instead of help and support. Pablo Escobar has been dead for over 25 years yet Cocaine is still as easy as ever to get your hands on. There is just different middle men, making the money and controlling the supply and I bet the men at the top are not Colombian but American and state sponsored.
They stir up race wars and use racism to keep us divided but this war is not about race its about control, if we are all focusing on each other how can we focus on the real enemy? Which is the corporate and bank controlled state.
The so called war on terror has led in an increase in terrorism because if you fight terrorism using terrorism all you are going to end up with is more terrorism. Than we have the war on extremism and hate speech, but what is extremism and hate speech? There is no clear definition on extremism or hate speech and this is deliberate. In my view most of our mainstream media could easily be categorized as hate speech and promoting extremism but thats not who they are after. The war on extremism, fake news and hate speech is really just a war on your freedom of speech, they’re not going after the corporate media they can and do carry on printing their hate filled racism and propaganda daily.
The government use fear and hate and create problems to control us, without problems there would be no need for a government. These problems are than solved by your government usually at the cost of a little freedom from the people and little more power to the state.
I was bought up in the middle of Wolverhampton and Walsall in a once prosperous and famous town called Willenhall (famous for locks and keys) before moving to Wolverhampton about ten years ago. Walsall, Willenhall and Wolverhampton have a huge variety of ethnic groups and minorities this meant I was bought up around many races Indians, Pakistanis, Jamaicans, Chinese and even a few English kids (like me), and for this I am glad because this has helped me understand people better. I feel no racism or hate towards any people but I am ashamed to say I notice that too many white people do feel racism and hate towards people, this is a fact I used to deny, I used to believe it was black peoples/Muslim peoples paranoia making them think like this, I was wrong. I always knew that some people were racist I just always believed it was a tiny minority of people. I did not believe that police discriminate almost systematically, I did not believe that being black or Muslim made it harder to find work or opportunity, I did not believe that our society was racist, ignorant and oppressive, but then I woke up and smelt the propaganda and the fears and hate it spreads!
Why are so many white people so small minded and racist in the first place? One word; FEAR! It seems to me that white English people fear everything and everyone that is different to them, especially black and Muslim people. Its surely about time that these over privileged, cowardly white boys take note of what is actually really happening. It is not Muslims, black people or ethnic minorities that should be feared, the only thing that should be feared is your fear of everyone and everything that is different to you and what it may lead too!
Over privileged rich white boys like you are responsible for more murder, hate and war than any other race, they may wear nice suits and talk in a proper fashion but they are as evil, greedy, corrupt and as twisted than the devil himself, like they say; the devil wears Prada! So many white people live cozy lives in willing ignorance of the truth, they call people terrorists and extremists but the taxes they pay are financing wars all over they world. Our media first tell us “be afraid” and then we are afraid, they then tell us “let us kill them” we watch them on the news kill them and realize we were wrong to kill them but now we got to be even more afraid of the extremists and terrorists we funded to help us kill the first people we were afraid of and these are even more dangerous because we funded them!
We ignore extreme poverty and the unjust wars our government fight and support in Libya, Iraq, Palestine and Syria but on the very rare occasions that white people are attacked “we stand shoulder to shoulder against terrorism” its time for a reality check.
