  • Dystopia has arrived. The DPRK issue. 2017-5-8 17:32

    You are clearly an intelligent and educated person with sound opinions. Most of this blog concerned the situation in North Korea and the threats it poses, particularly with reference to Trumps actions. I would welcome your comments on this, but please avoid insults. They are not constructive or sensible.

  • Dystopia has arrived. The DPRK issue. 2017-5-8 09:45

    This blog is seriously dumb. Do you really think the people in control of USA now that Trump is president are different people to the one that were controlling USA under Obama - or right back to WW2 and before? Come on.

    And George Orwell was a capitalist propagandist that worked for the BBC/western capitalist elites. Western capitalist elites claim that Jack London was a 'nature writer' but his big thing was socialism, class struggle and revolution right? Orwell was used by western capitalist elites to erase London's work from history. Orwell took London's important books and rewrote them in a way that was Procapitalist in that all of Orwell's propaganda is anti-revolution and predictive programming. Western capitalist children are sure as hell not going to he reading The Iron Heel at school are they? Western capitalists makes them read anti-revolution trash 'Animal Farm'. And Winston from 1984 is a weak and pathetic scumbag loser that only cares about himself - like the modern western capitalist public - and the character is the anti-Earnest Everhard from The Iron Heel. Orwell also wrote a capitalist version of London's The People of the Abyss. Orwell is a favourite propagandist of the CIA. Why do you think the western elite love Orwell so much but have erased Jack London's work from history? Did you read the Orwell essay where he claims that Jack London was a fascist? See you people - the brain dead western capitalist public - are dumb as hell. I can't believe how stupid you are. But with you I can tell you know what you are doing. You work for them. You are an outer party minion. I her you are drinking victory gin right now aren't you? He worked for the BBC for Christ sake. Stop being ridiculous. And uncontrolled immigration does put downward pressure on wages and reduces work opportunities for the working class. Can you look at yourself in the mirror? Outer party minion. You hate yourself. You are not elite. You hate yourself. And you would steal chocolate rations from your sick and dying sister like Winston wouldn't you. You are a joke.
