It’s not enough to defeat Tory ideology. We also have to defeat the “drum beat”. We have to defeat the Tory propaganda machine that brainwashes people with their slogans and catch-phrases. You’ve heard those slogans -“less government”, “personal responsibility”, “hard-working families” “making work pay” and lots of flag waving. These are shorthand for an entire world-view. But ever such a shabby, ruthless and paltry one.1209102_539900659412800_1664499134_n

A clue is in the name: The word “Tory” derives from the Middle Irish word tóraidhe, which means  outlaw, robber or brigand, from the Irish word tóir, meaning “pursuit”, since outlaws were “pursued men”. It was originally used to refer to an Irish outlaw and later applied to Confederates or Royalists in arms. The term was thus originally a term of abuse.

Isn’t it interesting how much we don’t know in this ‘information age’?

This ownership of great tracts of land – and housing – by a minority which under current governmental manipulations, sets the agenda for lawbreaking, disingenuous misinformation or outright erasure of reality.

Of course it would be crass to remind ourselves that the same minority who now govern access to property, capital and thus power, also limit our access to employment, define our salary levels and manipulate the information systems which set the level and content of popular discourse.

Where do they find the time.

This is 21st C Enclosure; the removal of communal access to land and community power, the removal of the right to secure housing and the opportunity to provide for oneself and ones community. Removing our ability to support ourselves independently funnels our expenditure back to the very minority who profit from our dependence.

This pattern of social control ought to be  familiar, where the majority are controlled by a minority and taught to keep themselves in a position of powerless low income amid arguable ignorance of the reality of  their own status.

We exist within a new Feudal System, but we are blinded to it by the shine on our TV screens and laptops.

The  swaggering arrogance of ministers appointed to protect their own interests, suggests that this will not change anytime soon.
