Human Conveyor Belt
Such parties have their own devised agendas, their
own carefully crafted ideas of how they think things should be done
and they then attempt to convince the electorate that their party ways
are what the electorate really wants and needs.

Okay, I forget things. I even forgot to take my anti-senile
dementia tablets for two months.
But one thing I will never forget is the reality
and meaning of freedom. Oh sure, I’d like to forget, but
that would only ever be possible when the underlying causes of
concern no longer exist.
And this is where the Muppet democracies of
our world reveal exactly what their true agendas are.
True democracy is a simple process. It is the
election of people’s representatives for representation
of the people, by the people, for the people. Sadly for us all
such a concept has now been relegated to a simple theoretical
appraisal of what democracy is. The reality of democracy throughout
by far the so-called democratic nations of the world is vastly
different to the meaning of the word itself.
Politics has become a career and a career that
hinges on applied politics is an unavoidable contradiction of
terms. It is like trying to sharpen a knife with a block of butter.
Thus we have politicians whose driving concern
is not the will of the people – it is the retention of
their jobs, their income. How can this ever be equitable with
a correctly functioning democracy?
The harsh reality of Muppet democracy should
be of concern to all who put it under the spotlight. Muppet democracies
are formed by various groups of individuals who form a ‘party’ which
then stands for election.

Oh, sure, you have the freedom to cast your democratic
vote. But what choice do you really have as to who you can
When representation of the people by the people for
the people is set aside by those elected to represent the people, then
you are living under the authoritarian control of a Muppet democracy.

Human Conveyor Belt
After over 50 years of careful and re-examined deliberations I find
that I remain of the opinion that the majority of my own species is
in fact quite insane. We are inducted onto the human conveyor belt
of madness from the moment of birth.
There are several different conveyor belts: that of the masses, that
of the landed gentry and that of the born rich. Regardless of which
belt we end up on the final target is identical: death.
The repercussions of whichever conveyor belt we land upon are significant
to us only throughout our own lives, but they impact upon everyone
for far longer.
Slavery has been far from abolished throughout the
world. Instead it has been cosmopolitanised under a glossy veneer of
and normality. It is the means whereby those with more than enough
can get even more while those whose time, labour and efforts brings
in the more receive but the crumbs from the table.
Any capitalist-based society that functions on profiteering requires
inequality. Without inequality, the capitalist system simply cannot
function. It is controlled by the wealthy, who rely on the less well
off to propagate and keep the system working by their need to acquire
the essentials of living and the in-doctrinaire desire to acquire luxuries.
The final path of any capitalist society that adheres to its principles
of profiteering is on an unavoidable road to anarchy and class war.
As populations grow and life's essential commodities become more expensive
and harder to obtain, the who have and wish to hold onto what they
have must take steps to defend what they regard as theirs.
In this they are supported by the brainwashed members of the armed
forces and national police. It is an irreversible path. Greater numbers
of poor present a growing threat that must be countered by greater
means of defense. Anyone who has developed their thinking beyond brainwashed
indoctrination can see that such events are already taking place. Developed
capitalist societies are now squeezing the poor into abject poverty
while the wealthy continue to live relatively untroubled lifestyles.
Capitalism is not a pleasant social system, although we are indoctrinated
from birth to accept it as 'normal' and 'healthy'. It is modern day

the Killing Machine
Millions of words have undoubtedly been written about the
wars in Afghanistan and Iraq in thousands of articles around the globe.
Some have been pro-war, others excusatory. The bulk of commentary however
would seem to question the moral and legal validity of the conflicts.
Comparisons with earlier wars, such as World War II, are false. Neither
Afghanistan nor Iraq were bent on invading western countries.
Sure, under Saddam Hussein’s rule Iraq attempted to annex Kuwait
through military invasion but the attempt was crushed by a military
alliance that had stakes in the resources and strategic importance
of Kuwait. No such military alliance uprising has taken place with
regard to Israel’s successive invasions of foreign territories,
unsurprising given Israel's military weight and possession of a nuclear
Given the realities of both wars, the only sure way to cripple the
killing machine is for those who are ordered to bear arms to refuse
to do so. But that will not happen as long as the killing machine has
a ready supply of brainwashed individuals who are fodder to the generals
A conversation with a 22-year-old US soldier who was traveling for
a leave period in Ireland following a 16-month stint of duty in Iraq
brought such brainwashing into focus. The young man spoke proudly of
the ‘successes’ of the US in Iraq with an attitude that
clearly stemmed from an inbred belief in America’s righteousness
in policing the world. There was little room for constructive dialogue,
especially after he spoke of how he had willingly enlisted in the military
to join the struggle in Iraq.
As long as such fodder is prepared to bear arms and fight in wars,
politicians will continue to stoke the killing machine. The only true
way to cripple the machine is for those who fight as part of it to
refuse to participate, whatever the cost.
If you are willing to bear arms on the orders of others, then you
support the call to war.
in the 80s I worked for a time on a project investigating UFOs and
the paranormal. It proved an interesting experience although it also
resulted in many fanciful and bogus reports. That was not the case
with US Lt Col Charles Holt's report of an unidentified flying object,
which landed and was detected by early warning and air traffic control
radar in a remote section of East Anglia in Britain.
has become famous, not least due to a best seller written about the
incident, which also revealed how the commander of the US air base,
who investigated the radar sighting, was later transferred by the
Pentagon to a remote post in the Philippines after filing an official
report of the investigation carried out at the site of the 'landing'
by trained airbase personnel.
is a curious correlation between the UFO factor and the paranormal.
Not in the events themselves, but in our perception of them.
at least at this point in time, somewhat difficult to prove. The
events described by my good friend Dumas Marchant in the Ring
of Tooting are all true, but the account does not include its
also true follow through.
after the events described in the tale and still puzzled by them
and their significance, Dumas carefully prepared a documented account
of the events and submitted the document to the London HQ of the
Royal Society for Psychical Research, along with a cover letter.
He said he submitted the account on the belief that the BRSPR was
created to investigate such matters of the paranormal and would therefore
be interested. Not so.

conjured up an image of a fat geezer with walrus moustache, blotchy
face and red conk and an IQ of minus 30. The letter simply thanked
me for writing and sending the account and suggested I 'see my psychiatrist'.
All he convinced me of was that he was an absolute toss-pot," Dumas
not the first time—and it won't be the last—that ridicule
and scorn has been poured upon certain events by the uninitiated
and the ignorant. I know this item is short. It is not to inform,
rather to spark interest and feedback. It has been my fortune, or
misfortune depending on how things are translated, to have had a
good many personal encounters with paranormal incidents and events,
similar to that written of by Dumas Marchant and also that described
in the Book of Ptoth, also on this web site.
