( This is merely by way of re-capitulation ,first blogged under ASIG #480,June 2014 )
Just in case there’s any misunderstanding or misinterpretation.or perhaps the casual reader might get it into their thick heads that somehow,however implausibly I don’t actually believe or mean any of this.
I utterly hate,loathe and despise Usurer-Capitalism and all its works and everything it does and stands for. I also,and at no extra cost,utterly hate,loathe and despise the European Union and all its works and everything it does and stands for. furthermore , I utterly reject and repudiate any assertion made by any so-called authority that I am ,in some way, ” a citizen ” of the EU. No,I am not. It is an enduring shame and pity that so many who might be counted as amongst the forces of Progress and opposition to capitalism and its practices, so easily and readily endorse and support the very policies which keep the capitalist order functioning and capable of renewing itself. ” Migration ” , ” immigration ” and all the officially described variants thereof have nothing to with some idealised notion of ,”multi-culturalism ” or “internationalism “,let alone some spurious,transcendental hogwash of ” humanism “. Usurer-Capitalism demands intense labour market competition at all times and in all strata of economic activity. There is however the exception of those rareified strata such as Law,Science,Learning and Medicine where the ruling elites,quite remarkably seem to have immunised themselves against the vicissitudes of universal labour market competition so beloved and advocated by them in all other economic sectors. The rather sad and pathetic outcome of such dullard conformity and lack of critical response by various oppositional forces to this mainspring of capitalist labour market competition ,is self evident.
