Received a letter from ‘Anonymous’, I was so overwhelmed at the power of his / her analysis + the extent to which they cared about the + about people, + despairing.
They begin, ‘Found this v thought provoking.. Fuck capitalism: I agree too. We must do what we can. Do I believe we can win? No.’
Thank you for your contribution + giving me the chance to explain No Man’s Land which I’m going to include in my manifesto.
No Man’s Land is the answer. Land belongs to no one: one form of payment to the public purse in the form of rent by anyone who needs the use of land*: no such thing as tax; keep what you earn, all other $ transactions man 2 man.
Govts 2 be custodians of land, farmers also 2 be custodians of land.
It imposes an honest economy based on the only real wealth which is land* + human cleverness. Not all land has the same value: land in Kent is more naturally rich than land on the Isle of Skye. Land in London is worth more than on the Isle of Skye, because it has lots of buildings + facilities + culture (+ tourists) + is a capital city. This is an added stream of value which depends on human cleverness. Human cleverness is based on the use of land + adds to the circulation of wealth. “What’s good for the planet is good for the economy”, & good for people.. Then we have the ocean + the airwaves to deal with. Honesty is built into the task of assessing the price at which land can be rented. It is a task involving a great bulk of govt bureaucracy + would replace the complicated tax system of the capitalist bureaucracy which is corrupt.
It is also democratic because it imposes a fair distribution of wealth which gives power to the people + the responsibility to control politics.
… People don’t want to change. As long as we can mortgage our lives away & can have TV in every room, a house in the suburbs and two cars in the driveway people don’t care about the world, not really. Not in any meaningful kind of way that is- to actually do something about it and take a meaningful stand against it. They like having something to debate with the other idiots over the coffee machine at work or down at the pub, the young ones like to go to protests and feel involved but even then with that youthful idealism, they don’t really give a fuck. No one does. You wrote in your manifesto ‘man the self destroying animal’ and this sums it up. It’s not the system that is at fault, the system is fucked yes but it is put their and maintained by people that do not care- by mass complacency. Nothing meaningful will be done to resolve any of this until it is too late- public opinion will not save us because the public are stupid. Only when civilisation is crashing down around our ears will the public dare to act and by then it will be too late. You call Boris a fuckup and a conman, I don’t like him neither. I don’t like any of these politicians but fact is, while you’re levelling all of these insults at them, calling them fuck ups and conmen- they’re the only people out there willing to do these jobs. And they’re people, they are human beings so of course they will not be perfect, they’re not gods. They’re just as flawed and imperfect and stupid as the rest of us. They’re not separate from us. They have more, they play the game of capitalism better, but we’re all playing it. Your company is worth millions, you also are a winner. But they’re no more corrupt than you or me or any of us. Society is corrupt. People are corrupt. Fuck people

Ok Boris: can I internalise Boris, am I potentially like him? I think I am not, I could not be Boris + the one thing that makes this impossible is that I am honest, if I had been born into a poor family I might have become a thief but I would always be honest with myself. As a child I knew I had a strong identity of justice + honour + adventure. It was how I saw myself, it marked me. At 4 years old I knew I was a freedom fighter. I think it’s possible to say this + I think it’s possible to say that a few people are devils + U only discover this when they R in a position of power – it comes out. Boris is dishonest, that’s what makes him a devil. He’s never trying to do his best, he’s only destructive. You couldn’t trust him an inch.
The Devil was always a con man
on a power trip. / Get a Life!
Anyone’s life. / Not honest: with an ego
so blown up he despises all men.
The mask of the clown hides a parasite
feeding on envy. / He hates U,
finds U, kills his host.
7 bn. believe in him. Evil.
$ is Debt. $ is Death.
