Tories to ‘Re-Legalise’ Fox-Hunting! (2017)

May says she will hold free vote on allowing foxhunting if elected

Although neo-Con Tony Blair ‘banned’ fox-hunting (a minority blood-sport which sees a pack of starving dogs chase – and then rip an exhausted fox to pieces – pursued by a load of parasitic toffs on horse-back), there was much resistance from the bourgeoisie, and of course, the British police continuously failed to prevent ‘illegal’ fox-hunting from taking place (primarily because many senior officers partook in this activity, and the fact that the police exist to protect the middle class from the working class). In fact, when hunt saboteur groups gathered to prevent this ‘illegal’ hunting, they found themselves the victims of the very same police force that was failing in its duty to enforce UK Law. This is a clear case of the British police deliberately ‘refusing’ to enforce the law that had ‘banned’ fox-hunting, and siding with the very privileged middle class the ban affected. Ordinary working class people were arrested and imprisoned on trumped-up charges for trying to enforce the fox-hunting ban, whilst the police ensured that wherever possible, these now ‘illegal’ fox-hunts continued (on open land) without the inconvenience of British legislation interfering with the day’s activities. As soon as David Cameron was elected in 2010, bizarre ‘anti-fox’ stories started unquestionably appearing throughout the British media and press. Virtually all were non-substantiated, and ranged between false and improbable stories of London Boroughs ‘over-run’ with aggressive fox packs, to foxes attempting to kidnap sleeping children from their beds! This Tory tactic was an obvious attempt by the middle class to bring-back fox-hunting, but for various logistical reasons, this plan was not fully enacted at the time. This is because the Tories (and their LibDem lapdogs) had bigger fish to fry, formulating legislation to privatise the NHS and abolished the Welfare System. Having lost the vote to ‘stay-in’ the EU, Theresa May now thinks the time is right to bring-back fox-hunting – a blood-sport that never really left the British countryside due to the police refusing to enforce its ban.

Paul Scully MP – Dereliction of Parliamentary Duty (2017) Do Note Vote Tory!

Despite their privatisation of the National Health Service (NHS), and the dismantling of the Benefit System, the Tories (minus their LibDem lapdogs) were barely re-elected to Government of the UK in 2015 with a slim majority in the House of Commons. This is when Paul Scully made his début as Member of Parliament for Sutton & Cheam. Sutton was formerly a part of the County of Surrey, but was co-opted as a Borough of Greater London on April 1st, 1965, forming part of what is now South London. As there was protests from many of the middle class residence against this move, the Local Council permitted the continued use of the ‘Surrey’ postal designation in addresses – although ‘London’ is now the legal location. It is a multicultural borough, and as of 2015, its population measured 200,100 – with 70% of the population choosing to identify themselves as ‘White British’. Although there are large pockets of working class poverty, by and large the Local Council (which invariably pursues a centre-right political direction), keeps these populations corralled in poorly managed Housing Estates in the area, many still consisting of 1960’s-style high rise flats. This population is poorly educated, and is not catered for in either Local Council policy, or through the policies of national political parties and their elected MPs for the area. Allowed to fester in these hot-beds of poverty, these Housing Estates attract far-right groups such as the English Defence League (EDL), Britain First (BF), United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), and the National Front (NF), to mention just a few. The groups blame all the poverty experienced on these Housing Estates not on the class-led policies of the Bourgeois political parties (that take from the poor and give to the already rich), but rather on hard-working migrants, or people who originally settled in the UK from the former colonies of the British empire. This abandonment of Sutton’s working class allows the false consciousness of racism and self-hate to percolate in poverty-stricken areas, and those deemed ‘foreign’ to fall victim to racial assault. The rightwing Conservative Party – which Paul Scully represents – does nothing positive for Sutton’s working class – but instead pursues the negative policies of take away its benefits, NHS treatment, union representation, educational prospects and their rubbish bins!

Not only did the Tories lose the 2016 EU vote (condemning the UK to an amateurish ‘race’ obsessed ‘Brexit’ campaign), but both the Tories and the LibDems – for their ‘Coalition’ Government from 2010-2015 – were found Guilty of Crimes Against Humanity following an investigation by the United Nations (UN) in 2016. This was primarily based upon the Coalition’s policy of ‘Austerity’ and the immediate stopping of benefits for people with disabilities – leading to between 10,000 and 80,000 deaths in a five year period (a policy of deprivation administered through the DWP by the odious Ian Duncan Smith). Of course, this Crime Against Humanity represents the tip of the Tory iceberg regarding the suffering its policies have caused the British working class across the country. In fact, there is no reason whatsoever why a member of the working class should vote ‘Tory’. Many working class people feel alienated from the voting system, and do not register to vote, with those that register either not voting, or voting for parties that do not represent working class values. This is exactly the case in Tory Sutton. If the working class in Sutton registered to vote (as is their right), they could vote out the Tory and LibDem scum, and return to Parliament a leftwing leaning MP. As matters stand, Paul Scully MP has ‘cherry-picked’ the enquires he has answered, sent to him by his constituents. To date, he has been derelict in his Parliamentary duty to myself, by deliberately ignoring two emails I sent him regarding a call to ‘halt’ a far-rightwing (and racist) march in Scotland, and another a letter from the homeless charity St Mungoes, asking for more help for the Britain’s homeless. A third incident involved myself sending him a letter from the Royal College of Midwives explaining how the NHS is collapsing under Tory cuts, and asking for these cuts to be stopped as a means to save lives. Paul Scully MP ignored this email until I contacted his office in Parliament stating that he was in ‘dereliction’ of Parliamentary duty to myself – one of his constituents. In a matter of minutes a miraculous reply was issued by Paul Scully MP stating that there was nothing wrong with the NHS (suggesting that I should not listen to leftwing propaganda). Do not vote for Paul Scully MP – do not vote for the Tories. Britain needs a government that represents all its citizens. As matters stand, Paul Scully – who does not perform his Parliamentary duty to his Sutton & Cheam constituents – instead has sent a letter to everyone in the Borough of Sutton on embossed Parliamentary headed paper, (at the tax-payers’ expense), offering platitudes about how to contact him, and of course, requesting that we ‘vote’ for him.

Blairite Mayor Sadiq Khan Encourages ‘English’ Racism in London!

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The so-called ‘George Cross’ (actually used by other countries as their national flag), and the ‘Union Jack’, are all symbols of ‘English’ bourgeois imperialism, and the racist oppression of millions of people around the globe. This type of ‘Englishness’ cannot be rehabilitated – as (Zionist) Blairite Sadiq Khan seems to think, and its symbols represent the military subjugation of the Welsh, Scots, Irish (through the English ‘forced’ act of union throughout the British Isles), and the devastation of Africa, India and China. Sadiq Khan – an Asian man of Islamic faith – represents an ethnic group that has been historically (and contemporarily) on the often murderous receiving end of English racist nationalism, and yet he still continues to pursue a rightwing Labour Party policy for London (doing nothing for London’s hard-pressed working class), whilst regurgitating the old (and quite frankly ‘illogical’) Blairite rhetoric that the non-English victims of racism should ’embrace’ nationalistic symbols of that ‘racism’, and somehow make it their own! This policy is ridiculous and is in reality asking the victims of a racist ideology to ‘surrender’ to that ideology and allow its perpetrators to triumph (much like Khan’s policy of placating Israeli murder of the Palestinians). The irony is that the White working class are also the historical victims of bourgeois (middle class) racism, because they have been used as ‘fuel’ to serve in the English armed forces that spread English racism, murder and mayhem around the globe. Everyone with a working class conscience should ‘reject’ the George Cross and the Union Jack and NEVER fly these flags just as long as the Authorities in the UK refuse to a) recognise the racist history of these flags, and b) proscribe ALL the White (English) groups that use these flags in a racial manner. Rehabilitating these racist symbols in the UK should be treated with the same repulsiveness that any attempt of rehabilitating the Nazi German Swastika is treated. No one would ever seriously ask the victims of the German Swastika to ;proudly’ carry that flag as a means to ‘take it back’ from the Nazi Germans – this is exactly what Sadiq Khan is asking Londoners to do. Tony Blair asked the victims of racism to carry the symbol of that racism during his time as prime minister – it did not work – and it will not work now.  The only symbol for the international working class is Red Flag.

Sadiq Khan: Proud to be doing more to celebrate St George’s Day

18 April 2017
  •        Mayor leads London’s biggest-ever St George’s Day celebrations as English flag is raised outside City Hall

The Cross of St George has been raised outside City Hall from today in celebration of English history and culture as the final preparations are made for London’s biggest ever St George’s Day celebrations in Trafalgar Square this weekend.

Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “I’m proud to see the English flag raised outside City Hall this week in the lead up to the biggest ever Feast of St George celebrations in Trafalgar Square. St George’s Day is a great opportunity to celebrate our history of amazing culture, creativity and innovation that has helped shape the world – from the words of Shakespeare and Jane Austen to the ingenuity of Brunel and Tim Berners-Lee. I am proud to be doing more to celebrate this important national day.

“England has always been at its best when we both honour our past and embrace our future. For me, St George’s Day is about the phenomenal history of this country but also celebrating our modern diversity and the many different ways we can all feel proud to be English.”

The Mayor is also hosting a special exhibition at City Hall, which celebrates the capital’s history and heritage. The exhibition, I am London, reflects the diverse and multi-layered history of London, its people and the historic places that bear witness to the city’s past, present and future. Visitors can see the exhibition in City Hall or by The Scoop in More London until 28 April.

This Saturday (22 April), The Feast of St George – a vibrant event which celebrates the very best of English history, food and culture, will take place in Trafalgar Square. This year’s festivities promise more performers, activities and gastronomic fare than ever before.

The main stage programme includes performances by Crystal Palace Brass Band, indie folk band Patch and the Giant and choral sensation the Military Wives Choirs. Headlining the celebrations in Trafalgar Square is legendary folk musician Ralph McTell. One of England’s great musical storytellers, Ralph McTell is best known for his 1974 song ‘Streets of London’ – which earned him an Ivor Novello Award. In 2002, Ralph won the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Lifetime Achievement Award and is celebrating almost 50 years on the road.

Also performing on the main stage in Trafalgar Square is Clarissa Mae, winner of the Mayor’s 2016 Busk in London competition for budding street musicians and Dat Brass, a hip-hop brass band who were winners in 2015. There’s plenty of dance to enjoy too, with female Morris dancers Belles of London taking to the stage alongside Folk Dance Remixed – a unique company that blends Maypole, Clogging, Ceilidh, Street, House and Breakdance with a hint of African & Bollywood. Vistors can also experience a Ceilidh Jam Workshop on the North Terrace of the Square.

For budding chefs, there will be a Cookery Theatre, which will showcase the very best of English culinary traditions by top chefs including Theo Randall (River Café & InterContinental, London) and BBC Masterchef winner, Natalie Coleman.

This free event will also an English Food Market, featuring lots of stalls offering high quality English fare and a banqueting area, where visitors can enjoy performances from musicians on the main stage. The centrepiece of the festivities will be a colourful St George’s Dragon overlooking the Square. The market will offer everything from hog roasts to mouth-watering pies, to delicious cakes, tarts and meringues. There will even be a ‘London cab’ selling ice-creams and lollies. The majority of the food stalls are from Borough Market, local farms and winners of the British Urban Street Food Awards – celebrating locally-sourced English produce from the South East and London.

Families and children will enjoy the Magical Kingdom, which will feature magic activities and wizardry, including a ‘magical’ owl, fun fairground rides and children’s entertainers. There will also be a St George’s-themed Treasure Trail around Central London, highlighting the capital’s connections with England’s patron saint. Actors dressed as Knights and Ladies will give out clues to the public as they search for the Dragon’s name. The first 100 to meet the Dragon in the Square and know his name will be awarded a special ‘Treasure Trail’ token and be knighted by the King, who will sit alongside the mythical creature.

Visitors should also look out for performers reading Shakespeare’s sonnets, Jane Austen and Sherlock Holmes, court jesters, magicians, and iconic Pearly Kings and Queens as they make their way through the Square, entertaining the crowds.

Sutton: Privatising Bin Collections (2.4.2017)

Sutton Bin Changes

Why should we – local Council Tax payers – separate our household rubbish into ‘recyclable’ categories that benefit the ruthless ‘private’ firms the Local Council has ‘contracted-out’ the service of refuge disposal? If these ruthless private firms want to make money out of our rubbish, they should collect and sort the rubbish themselves, but they do not do this, because they would have to ‘pay’ employees to do it, and this would remove or diminish any available profit. Furthermore, what local residents are not told, is that the Local Council hires these ‘private’ firms to ‘reduce’ the amount of waste a household produces (an oppressive policy which I believe would be against the law if it were made public knowledge). This is achieved in two broad ways; a) reducing bin collections to every two-weeks instead of every week, and b) replacing large (wheelie) bins with small plastic ‘pots’ that clearly cannot hold anywhere near the volume of rubbish, of the bins they replace.

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

In the late 1990’s, Sutton Council (in South London), decided that that every household would have (unrecyclable) rubbish (by far the bulk of household rubbish) collected ‘every two weeks’ instead of the usual every week. This was coupled with an EU Directive that stated ALL areas of the UK had to start ‘recycling’ the rubbish that could be used again (such as tins, paper, cartons, plastic bottles and glass, etc). This task was given to greed-orientated ‘private’ firms that only cared about ‘profit’ and not the environment, and implemented by Bin-men who refused to ‘take’ any rubbish they deemed ‘non-sorted’ or ‘not sorted to the required degree’. As plastic bin-bags were still in use then – the Bin-men would cut a slit in the bag to ‘look’ at the content as a means to make their decision. If the bag was left – the slit in its structure often meant the bag would ‘rip’ when moved – spilling the contents-out on the floor, or attracted wild animals (such as foxes and birds) to attack the rubbish for food, a scavenging process also spreading the rubbish across the ground. This change in policy co-coincided with the introduction of ‘wheelie’ bins designed to prevent the Bin-men from damaging their backs – a common occurrence in the old days after years of lifting heavy bin bags for decades. However, a battle of wills developed where Council Tax-paying citizens simply left piles of rubbish bags in the streets when the Bin-men refused to take them. This led to a terrible stink in the streets, and a public health scandal developed as swarms of rats and mice descended upon the area! Sutton Council responded by introducing ‘covert bin-runs’ that were never officially announced or acknowledged. I had a martial arts student in those days who worked on these ‘secret’ bin-runs, the objective of which, was to go around the streets late at night or early in the morning ‘collecting’ all the rubbish left by the ‘official’ bin-run in the week.  The important point about this deception (paid for by Council Tax contribution) was that the local people were to be kept in the dark about it, as the Council did not want to encourage ordinary people to put-out extra bags of rubbish!  Things got so bag that the Liberal Democrat and Conservative Councillors that run Sutton became afraid that they would lose their Council Seats in the upcoming elections, and so re-introduced ‘weekly’ collections of ordinary household waste (raising Council Tax rates in the process).

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

That was around 20 years ago, but under this current Tory national government, Local Councils have become thoroughly ‘unaccountable’ since the demise of the Audit Commission in 2010 (a government body empowered to investigate and hold Local Councils ‘legally’ accountable for their actions). Today, Local Councils implement vicious (and ‘illegal’) Benefit cuts and Housing policies that attack and persecute the poor and the vulnerable. This is part of a broader Tory policy of attempting to eradicate the ordinary working class from relatively ‘wealthy’ areas of London by literally ‘starving’ then out, or deliberately not assisting in re-housing, etc. Quite often, when Council houses or flats become ‘vacant’, Sutton Council guts the interior and replaces everything ‘anew’ (something the Council would not have done for the previous Council Tenant), and places the building on the market for a ‘private’ sale. However, refuge collections effects absolutely everyone equally across the borough, and it will be interesting to see how Sutton’s middle class will react this time around. If the middle class reacts badly (i.e. ‘hose that vote’) – then it will be interesting to see how a vast reduction in the collection of waste volume will be met. In the meantime, it can clearly be seen that the plastic tubs provided in no way ‘equal’ the ‘wheelie’ bins that will soon be taken away from us. Lastly, it seems that the Bin-men will now have to pick-up heavy objects again (thus risking their backs), but in this time of diminished workers’ rights, Sutton Council is well aware that there is little the individual worker can do about this regressive change in working conditions (falsely) packaged as ‘progress’. Living in a ruthless, capitalist and consumerist society, it is ridiculous to oppress local people by stating that they should ‘reduce’ their consumption! Capitalism demands continuous (and ‘mindless’ consumption for it to exist!  The rich, of course, can afford to ‘pay’ for refuge collection in a ‘private’ capacity, but ordinary people already ‘collectively’ pay for this service through Council Tax payment. Ending capitalism and building a Socialist society is the only means to truly ‘cut’ the excessive waste associated with ‘unbridled’ greed. As matters stand, it looks like flat dwellers may have their old-style bins taken away, as there is no mention in the literature that the bins will exist alongside the new containers (as is the case with some middle class houses). It looks as if privileged middle class people will keep their old-style bins as well as benefiting from the new ‘pots’ (a shrewd move) – whilst ordinary working class people living in flats (amounting to tens of thousands) are losing their old-style bins and having their refuge collection volume ‘cut’. Taking rubbish to the local Council-run dump will be of no use – as the private firm running the new ‘pots’ will be also running the dump and ‘charging’ for any rubbish brought-in. This has been clearly seen with the antics of ‘Tor2’ – a private firm operating in Torquay in the Council’s name.  Sutton Council states on its website (2.4.2017):

Mindless ‘Bourgeois’ Terrorism is Against Socialism

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

‘The weapon of criticism cannot, of course, replace criticism of the weapon, material force must be overthrown by material force; but theory also becomes a material force as soon as it has gripped the masses. Theory is capable of gripping the masses as soon as it demonstrates ad hominem, and it demonstrates ad hominem as soon as it becomes radical. To be radical is to grasp the root of the matter. But, for man, the root is man himself.’

Marx, Critique of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right. Introduction (1843)

Karl Marx was opposed to the judicial Death Sentence, and warned against pointless acts of desperate terrorism against the State, its assets, or those that serve it. On the other hand, Marx clearly stated that the Working Class had a right to defend itself from external aggression. The impression left is that ‘cliches’ of terrorists are pursuing a counter-productive (bourgeois) course of action that does nothing in its limited scope, to collectively ‘free’ the working class from the yoke of capitalist oppression. Indeed, such action inflicts mindless death upon individuals, and the damage and destruction of property, facilities and resources. Generally speaking, the State responds by limiting the ‘freedoms’ of its own citizens under the guise of ‘preventing’ further terrorist attacks. Therefore, the bourgeois habit of ‘separatist’ of terrorist groups attacking specific symbolic targets, ultimately brings a greater oppression upon the Working Class, particularly if those groups represent religion, nationalism, or limited special interest groups. Of course, things are different during times of open warfare, as with the circumstances of WWI that led directly to the Russian October Revolution of 1917, the founding of North Korea at the end of WWII, or the subsequent founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949 (following the defeat of the ‘Nationalist’ Chiang Kai-Shek). Furthermore, the Soviet Union engaged in legitimate ‘self-defence’ activity during the Great Patriotic War (1941-45) and in the process defeated German Nazism. During the Cold War, the countries of the Communist Bloc defended their best ‘class’ interests against Western ‘capitalist’ aggression. In the West today, it is terrorist groups motivated by a vision of distorted religion, and fascism that are carrying-out their attacks on innocent civilians. This is still the case, even if they state that they are ‘retaliating’ for the hundreds of thousands of civilian deaths caused by US and NATO military action in the Middle East since 1991. Although it is true that the forces of capitalism (which includes Zionist Israel and its persecution of the Palestinians), do routinely deploy immense weapons of mass destruction, and often use those weapons motivated through a racist disregard for its victims, bourgeois acts of isolated terrorism does absolutely ‘nothing’ for the well-being of the Working Class, does not bring its freedom any closer, and often makes life considerably harder for those that toil for a living. As matters currently stand in the affluent West, it is more productive to pursue a path of legitimate progressive education, join a ‘legal’ leftwing Revolutionary political party (such as the ‘Communist Party’), and work to peacefully convert the forces of capitalist oppression over to the Socialist cause. Do not harm or kill the servants of the current bourgeois system, but treat them with respect and ‘convince’ them through reasoned argument that the establishment of Scientific Socialism in the UK through the democratic system, is in their best interests.

The Sangha Kommune (僧伽公社) Defined

Ch’an Master Caotang siad:

There is nothing special to leadership – essentially it is a matter of controlling the evils of biased information and autocracy. Do not just go by whatever is said to you first – then the obsequities of petty people seeking favour will not be able to confuse you.

After all, the feelings of a group of people are not one, and objective reason is hard to see. You should investigate something to see its benefit or harm, examine whether it is appropriate and suitable or not; then after that you may carry it out.

True Record of Sushan (Song Dynasty)

The Chinese Buddhist monastic community is referred to as a ‘Sangha’ (Sanskrit for ‘spiritual community’), whereby men and women form a voluntary association premised upon following a strict set of rules known as the ‘Vinaya Discipline’. Within this community, there is ‘equality’ between all members, with the leaders being those who have followed these rules for the longest times. This is because such people are thought to have more experience at adhering to the Vinaya Discipline (which includes celibacy and vegetarianism), and are therefore able to effectively advise all others through the difficult times they my face in their practice. As those with little experience have less to share, they are not considered leaders whilst more experienced practitioners live in the vicinity. Of course, this is a relative matter depending upon the size of population of a community, and the length of time it has existed, and the quality of the masters (male or female) that have led it. Those who cannot keep the Vinaya Discipline (of over 200 rules) generally choose to leave on their own accord, with those who confess breaking the major rules being asked to leave and expelled from the monastic community (due to the bad example they set). However, the term ‘Sangha’ is often more loosely applied to the devout or dedicated lay community, the members of which follow at least 5, 8 or 10 vows as a life routine, and who regularly visit the local temple and volunteer their time in worthwhile social or charitable activities. In this manner, the monastic Sangha teach and guide the lay Sangha, and the lay Sangha applies the Buddha’s teachings of compassion, loving kindness and wise action to the outside the temple, and thereby expand the Buddha-Dharma beyond the temple. As the Buddha originally taught that there is no ‘difference’ in enlightened essence between the monastic and lay community, the monastics do not consider themselves ‘superior’ and the lay community does not consider itself ‘inferior’ to one another. The principle of ‘Sangha, therefore, denotes a sacred space defined and maintained through the principles of psychological and physical self-discipline and learning, premised upon a general attitude of mutual respect. The Sangha, in both essence and function, is a model for a ‘commune’ operating through the vigorous principles of  equality’, ‘discipline’ and ‘wisdom’. These are the principles embodied within this blog – regardless of the scope of its subject matter.

The term ‘Kommune’ is taken from the German word for ‘Commune’, and is directly related to the principles of Scientific Socialism, as formulated by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. Indeed, within German language editions of the works of Marx and Engels, the term ‘Kommune’ is often encountered. This type of ‘Kommune’ is also a voluntary association, albeit distinctly ‘modern’ in origination, and designed to serve the Revolutionary needs of the Proletariat – or the mass of peasants forced to work in the industrialised factories produced by the oppressive capitalist system. Working 12 to 16 hours a day, strictly by the clock, whilst being dictated to by brutal managers and the movement and operation of monotonous machines, these peasants were transformed into self-disciplined and highly exploited automatons of industry, waiting for the right historical epoch to free themselves from their endless toil for little reward. Just as the collective mind is ‘dulled’ by endless hours of repetitive toil, it is ‘freed’, ‘activated’ and ‘expanded’ when encountering the strictures of Scientific Socialism, and a non-resisting ‘false consciousness’ is replace by a resisting ‘true consciousness’. Generally, when the mind is freed from the straitjacket of oppression, the body soon follows, even though it is equally true that if the body is freed by a Revolution caused by others, then the mind soon follows! In these post-modem times, proletariat ‘true consciousness’ is much more amorphous in manifestation, particularly as factory work becomes ever less prevalent in the West. Although the modes of capitalist exploitation change with the epoch, the nature of capitalist exploitation (and class distinction) remains exactly the same. Striving for the establishment of a ‘Kommunistic’ society remains the duty of all right-minded working class people across the globe, with the Marxist principle of ‘Internationalism’ replacing nationalism and racism, etc. The point is that the ‘true consciousness’ of the working class is premised entirely upon non-hatred for one another, as this hatred has been imported into the working class by the very capitalists that exploit them! By rejecting capitalism, the working class is rejecting the greed, hatred and delusion that underlies all capitalist thought and action. This working class mission is no less ‘sacred’ than its Buddhist counter-part, and shares exactly the same essence. The author of this blog strives to agitate for the peaceful achievement of both inner and outer Revolution amongst by any means necessary (to quote Malcolm X).

Having defined two interpretations of ‘Kommune’, it is important to also emphasis the pivotal notion of ‘education’ and the training of the human mind to discern a relevant ‘truth’ in any given situation or circumstance. Learning in a classroom, through a book, encounter groups, political meetings, protest marches, meditation sessions, or the internet, are all crucial aspects of ‘refining’ the memory and ‘honing’ the intellect. The thought processes (and emotionality) must be ‘calmed’ for the sake of ‘wise’ action and non-action when young, so that avoidable errors and mistakes are reduced to the minimum, and progressive activity increased to the maximum (to selflessly benefit humanity).  This is not always easy, and the ability to recognise non-efficient thought-patterns and behaviours should also be cultivated as a means toward achieving self-forgiveness, and the forgiveness of others. The important point is that the mind should be kept in a positive frame of operation, so that the body can be used for various types of ‘enlightened’ political, cultural and social action. The physical body must be clearly (and cleanly) directed by the mind (the seat of volition), and kept physically fit through appropriate activities. This psycho-physical training sets the stage for the refined individual to understand the frequency and quality of inner and outer energy, and immediately understand the best action (if any) to take, or instantly ‘know’ when others are ‘lying’, or presenting ‘untruth’ as ‘truth’. This ability can be further used to generate ‘correct’ work that counters the lies of a society motivated entirely by greed, racism and an indifference to the suffering of humanity and other life forms. Therefore, this ‘Sangha Kommune’ blog is a work in progress that covers a bewildering array of topics, opinions, and research data. By taking a step back away from its content – the general reader will begin to understand the underlying (and motivating) paradigm. This is essentially a ‘Kommunist’ zone where all beings are automatically ‘freed’ at the point of contact. The need for money is already ‘transcended’, and the energy frequency of the Sangha Kommune should be used by all to achieve a state of permanent ‘freedom’ in all circumstances. This is a space of permanent Cyber Kommunism, and ongoing Revolutionary activity in the form of ‘exposing’ and ‘dissolving’ the bourgeois system and its redundant mode of capitalist organisation.

The Ch’an community is a place for the moulding of Sages and ordinary people, and for nurturing and developing potential ability. It is a source of teaching,. Even though many people are living together, gathering in kind, they are guided and made equal. Each has a transmission from the teacher.

Now in many places they do not strive to maintain the standards of the Sages of the past. Biased feelings of like and dislike are many, with people bending others to what they personally think is right. How should later students take an example?

Silk Road: Ross Ulbricht and Computer Revolution

FREE ROSS ULBRICHT

Under President Barak Obama – Ross Ulbricht was tried and convicted of fraud and computer hacking in 2015 (in the USA) – and was sentenced to life imprisonment without parole. Prior to this, however, the US law enforcement, intelligence and anti-terrorist agencies created a false paradigm that he was a drug-dealer and a hirer of killers. These stories were disseminated throughout the US media until ordinary people believed them, and Ross Ulbricht’s reputation was character assassinated prior to his trial. So bizarre were these false allegations that NONE were eventually brought-up in court and Ross Ulbricht was never charged with any such crimes. That being the case, why was Ross Ulbricht given such a ridiculous prison sentence? My view is that Ross Ulbricht was a leftwing computer analyst and activist. His association with the Silk Road computer software and website created a computer presence that was ‘free’ of government control, law and enforcement control, and banking control. This ‘independence’ from the capitalist system could not be tolerated by the Bourgeois State, because it symbolised a ‘new’ form of citizen freedom whilst still existing within the capitalist system – effectively bringing it down from within. The capitalist government had to move quickly, and single-out a person to make an example of, whilst persecuting anyone who believed that the Silk Road was good and productive for ordinary society as a whole. The point of this establishmentarian oppression, is to keep the class-related status quo, and prevent the working class from creating a computer technology that better represents its own class interests. The corrupt judge in his trial prevented a cross-examination of government witnesses that ‘questioned’ the government’s narrative. In other words, this was a ‘show trial’ for the government to have its duplicitous way.

Over-Coming Systemic Disempowerment

The problem with gesture politics and single issue protests is that the Bourgeois State simply ‘meets’ and ‘contains’ each flare-up, keeping one disaffected group from another (with the false propaganda that each special interest group has nothing in common with the other). This is the working class disunited by the Bourgeois System – and kept disempowered in that state. This is the opposite process to unionism. Instead of protesting this issue or that issue from a one dimensional perspective, all protests should be presented for what they are – as a resistance to the concerted bourgeois attack upon the working class! Bourgeois attacks on the homeless, Muslims, Jews, poor, unemployed, homosexual, Black, White, Asian, animals, housing, healthcare, work, benefits, sexuality, gender, defence, science, technology, sport, art, travel and general culture, are all important issues in their own right, of course they are, but they also indicate different aspects of attacking the samething – namely the working class! We should ‘unite’ around our differences to become stronger in the face of this relentless bourgeois attack. In this way, if we respond ‘together’ as an organic whole, the bourgeois class would have to tread very carefully as it faces the possibility of losing all its dominance over us – which should serve as the premise for all united working class protest. We must ‘take’ our rights because the bourgeoisie will never give them freely away.

Withdrawing Socialised Medicine as a Form of Population Control

The EU is dismantling Socialist Systems of ‘free’ medical help across Europe, and wants to extend this policy into Russia. When ‘free’ medical care is removed from the general populace – then ordinary people (who cannot afford proper treatment), start to die of easily curable diseases and injuries. The children and the elderly die first – followed by sections of the general population. The point of this, is to reduce the general population of the world, and preserve resources for the ruling class. Usually, the ruling class uses warfare to keep the working population ‘low’ – but it is generally believed that wars are not lowering the general population of Europe quickly enough, as modern European armies are small, highly professional, and staffed by volunteers – despite the breath-taking death and destruction such armies inflict on the non-European peoples of the world. Next time you sit in a British NHS surgery with a sick child and are told that there is no treatment available because the illness is ‘non-specific’, remember that we are involved in a class war – and that they are trying to kill us. We must fight – as the working class – for our own continued existence.

The Bourgeois Construct of Cultural Marxism

When Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels developed their theory of Scientific Socialism in the 19th century, they systematically and completely exposed the highly exploitative economic system of modern capitalism as it functioned in the UK, Europe, the Americas and throughout the world (via European imperialism and colonialism) – and the capitalist system has never recovered.  When Marx clearly explained that theistic religion was premised upon an ‘inverted’ mind-set (through which theology falsely assumes that mind or spirit creates matter), he gave ordinary people the means to correct their own false consciousness, and see through the oppressive nature of their capitalist inspired existence.  Marx and Engels revealed how the bourgeoisie (middle class) had built-up their economic, political, cultural and social power over hundreds of years, usurping the upper classes as they progressed.  This middle class remained deliberately small in number, whilst ensuring that the working class remained far more numerous, but possessing very little real power in society.  This disparity in numbers ensured an endless supply of mindless workers trapped in a cycle of poverty and degradation, that possessed very little formal education and could not see through the nature of the oppression they routinely experienced. Marx and Engels brought an objective and scientific analysis to the capitalist system, clearly defined and explained how it worked throughout his collected works (but particularly in Das Kapital).  This shocked the capitalist State, which desperate in its efforts to retain bourgeois hegemony, started to grant certain and limited rights to workers, in an attempt to prevent those workers from uniting and over-throwing the bourgeoisie.  Although this process of placating the working class was more or less slow and relatively limited toward the end of the 19th century, following the successful Bolshevik Revolution in early 20th century Russia, the liberal reforms started to gain momentum.  There limited experiments in granting union rights at work, and redistribution projects through equally limited welfare payments and pensions, etc.  This type of liberal compromise probably reached its peak in the UK with the 1945 Labour Party government that initiated a broad and fully comprehensive welfare and health system, and similar social experiments in Europe. Even in the US immediately following WWII (and the stunning Soviet victory in the East), various (but short-lived) and highly discriminative welfare schemes existed for returning US (White) soldiers.  The liberal premise of attempting to prevent a Socialist Revolution by granting the workers just enough money and health care to prevent them collectivising and rising-up, is the origin of the term ‘Cultural Marxism’.  Cultural Marxism, regardless of what the bourgeois system may have told you, has nothing to do with Marx or Engels, and does not derive from within their theory of Scientific Socialism.  Cultural Marxism has been a self-imposed straitjacket manufactured by the bourgeois system in its ongoing efforts to control the working class, and keep it in a subordinate and easily exploitable position.  These pseudo-welfare systems in the West have come under ever more criticism and attack in recent years from the bourgeois system that gave rise to them, which has led to an intensification of their dismantling and annulment since Communist China’s embracing of Socialist market forces in the 1980’s, and the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.  The bourgeois system now perceives the workers to be in one of their weakest positions for hundreds of years, and has made its move by depriving the working class of all the concessions it previously granted. However, the historical impetus built-up over-time – which suggests that the bourgeois system should at least provide a reasonable standard of living for its workers – has been ‘inverted’ by the very same bourgeois system that created it, and made to appear as if it were appearing ‘outside’ of the bourgeois system, enacted from an external source (i.e. ‘Marxism’).  Cultural Marxism is in reality the bourgeois system mimicking various elements of Marxism – whilst insisting that Marxists are ‘forcing’ them to do so.  This is yet another example of the bourgeois system manufacturing realities that do not exist. Nowadays, whenever a fascistic bourgeois government inflicts pain and suffering upon its own people – which attracts criticism for that treatment, usually from other elements of the bourgeoisie – the very same bourgeois system replies with the false assertion that such concerns about the welfare of others is the product of a ‘Cultural Marxism’ enforced from the outside, designed to bring-down the capitalist system.  What they are complaining about is the historicity of their own political and cultural duplicity.
