Have you a radio or tv?

Have you a radio or TV? -

Then tell me, have you noticed recently, when the radio or television is on nobody says or does much? You should have noticed by now, as it has been this way unabated for fifty years to my knowledge. So admit it. And if you think about it, shouting at the damned thing's inanities or atrocities doesn't result in anything worthwhile, does it, even if it momentarily relieves your feelings. You are just letting off steam that could much more constructively be used in remedying said offenses permanently.

If you hear somebody else's radio or tv at a distance, you will notice that there is no respite, no interval for anyone to draw breath. It is a constant barrage of voice or noise, to dumb-down your brain and keep you subjected to what is coming next, which is just so much more of the same. For the last twenty years its strategic practitioners even try to make you work harder to hear, by playing background noise through which your subconscious strives to hear what is being said. Listen impartially, and you will hear this is true.

From a passing train or bus you can see entire households, cafés and bars, with all the occupants fixed passively in mindless attention to images on a box, images visualized, directed and broadcast never in order to educate, improve or inform - just to drug you with sound and color and keep you passive and in buying- and consuming-mode, while the perpetrators' friends run off with the planet.

So for a start, switch the damned thing off and, if you can lay hands on them, switch off its manipulators. Let's get thinking again and regain our own volition.

I used to write ten pages a day in cloistered silence. With a radio on, mine or any other audible neaby, one page. So I know.

So who are these merchants of noise, who work so hard, and so unobtrusively to dominate our attention, while hiding their malignance behind the frenzied smiles and desperate flim-flam of others who more effectively command our loyalty, respect, admiration and even doting adoration? Who are those administering this so-offensive social weapon?

Ah - them again, eh?

A news report a couple of years ago stated that when they enter and occupy a territory, the first thing they do is take over the tv station and broadcast raw pornography to families of normally deeply religious folk. That figures. That shows their attitude and method unadorned.

And they are doing this all over the world, while manifestly their accomplices run off with our politicians and behind closed doors deal in all our futures for their gain and our loss and extinction - The same who manufacture and hard-sell us any trash injurious to our physical or mental health, those who inflict their finance on us, who produce the arms and create the wars for us to use them in - always them!

So let's not go all coy and say it isn't so. You know damned fine it is, and there's no use pretty-mouthing these ugly facts. This is the present reality, and a wicked reality it is. Admit it. And it is of their making, remember, not ours. Let's just be honest for once in our lives, shall we? I don't like hyenas gnawing at my tripes and those of my family. How about you?

Watch the birds and other animals, and you will see how cautious they are, always on the look-out for trouble. We humans by contrast are complacent in our incaution. And we have been persuaded to allow entry, with free access even to our children, to a feral type that intends us nothing but harm.

Look at the stark case of how they have got away with warping American policy to their own designs, having previously got away with generating and then using the former Russian, German, French and Roman power-bases. We have to recognize their intentions to waste us all too in their long-term ambition of domination of the planet. And - ?

Sorry.  Unacceptable.  Off with their heads.
