A Truthful Politician - Sadly Not From The UK

Dognamedblue, a regular reader of this blog, left the link to this video in the comments of yesterday's post.

To see the English subtitles you will have to view it on the Youtube site (click the Youtube icon) and then click on the first button of the list of icons on the right. Although the video is nearly 14 minutes long it seemed much shorter to me.  Perhaps it was because his speech reiterated many of my own thoughts.

I wonder how many in this country agree with him.

Fine words they may be – but who, with any real political influence, is listening?

There are none so deaf as those who will not hear.

how true you are JRB

we just have to stop playing their game by their rules, hopefully as more listen a tipping point will be reached, hopefully before a third world war is started in africa & the middle east [shocking that the military is used to impliment corporation's policies]

but then again it doesn't matter what anybody else does, only what you do & that's the most important thing, reality is only perceived by the individual & not the masses, hate to do it to you but it really is down to you

In 1882 we went into Egypt with a Baring at the helm. In 1899 there was the Boer War which had to do with De Beers and others.

Jacob Bronowski -
"But war, organised war, is not a human instinct. It is a highly planned and co-operative form of theft".

Listened all the way through with the video link - depite the fool behind Laurent Louis who was unable to demonstrate any respect towards a unique act of decency and integrity from such a young man who also appears to have caught the attention of the Keiser Report.

I have read this post and yesterdays
as well, they are really about one and the same thing.
What is war? look at the history of the world for as far back in time as we can go, and its always the same.
The names change and the places change, but it is always some one who has conned a people in a country that some wrong has been done, we have to get revenge, restitution etc whatever!
Most of the "we"don't know what its all about, but the boss-boy said it, so it must be true/right etc.
The "we"are not asked their opinion
and will be very quickly told that it isn't wanted.
Now how did the boss-boy get his power,in the old days by killing off the opposition or getting his mates to do the killing, basically gang warfare, and this way became institutionalised up to today. Democracy never had a look in, and still hasn't yet. How did our leaders get where they are, by born in the right family and at the right time, by hereditary means and by having lots of hangers-on to do the dirty work. Look at Westminster
mob, and I use that word deliberately. We come to the little matter of democracy, a very little matter because it doesn't really exist. These are the ones in control of the country, they make the rules, the laws you must obey or their minions will imprison you , or worse, and no one really, will be able to help you. Anyone who does will quickly find out about the rules of rebellion and insurrection and treason.
Ah yes, democracy,you have a vote of course,what do you really know
about the person selected by the party and who you voted for, could you recognise them in the street?
and much more importantly will they
vote in parliament the way you have wanted them to do , or the way the party told them? Who directly pays their wages, no you don't, the parliament does and that's controlled by ....the government!
So now you see why the people whose
name you put a mark against ignore your wishes. And why you and millions of others are ignored.
All you know is what the press/TV is allowed to tell you, and you know how accurate that is.
Now YOU voted for these parliamentary people, so its YOUR
fault these things happen.
Don't come and tell me I'm wrong , Think about how things are and what YOU can do to change them.
Any fool, like me ,can write on a blog, but is that the answer, what do YOU think, do you want to change the system?

I'm sure you observed his colleagues chatting away in the background JRB, but even then I admire the man for speaking out. I doubt if any would in Westminster.

subrosa said...

Good points Demetrius.

subrosa said...

I agree with you Clarinda, the fool's behaviour was appalling.

subrosa said...

Yes Apogee, they are. I posted the video in case some readers missed dognamedblue's comment containing the link.

Excellent comment may I say and thanks for taking the trouble to write it.

I think a majority would like change but don't have a clue how to go about it. My suggestion would be to take advice from Cpt Ranty.
