    Paul! That was truly a marvellous watch. Democratic government is a fallacy and when explained in answer to certain questions is downright dangerous for the health and wellbeing of the populace. Clever wee pieces of film. Anarchy anyone?

    Every form of government is a fallacy unless it is administered by honest and incorruptible people.
    This is why all forms of government have failed, because the corrupt and ruthless ones inevitably rise to the top, eventually destroying all who oppose them.
    A benevolent dictatorship is better than a corrupt democracy, so long as the dictator remains benevolent.
    A communist government likewise, until some comrades become more equal than others.
    Harking back further, even monarchies could be reasonable for awhile, until the monarch became a tyrant.
    Even anarchy can end in dictatorship with the rise to power of the most corrupt anarchist...

    You're right Keith!!
    It is not the system, it is those who control the system that make it wrong!

    government is there to collect your tax money and spend it on what it thinks is "priorities", it is NOT there to save you when some calamity befalls either you, your location or the country, when that happens your on your own, as the people on the Somerset Levels found out to their cost.

    Yes, they cut and cut as much as possible, and then when some disaster occurs they grudgingly pay out a little to look bountiful!

    That's a great video I hope it gets watched by lots of people. Is mental to think how many go through life without even realising how fucked up the whole system is..

    the system probably worked okay in the beginning, but now there are too many people using and abusing it and it is stretched to breaking point. if people would just learn to be self reliant or as self reliant as possible but that will never happen, people are too complascent.
