The Challenge and The Will

Take a look here, for our brief explanation of today’s (Tuesday 6th November) posts. For a time in my youth I was neighbours with a Cuban American lady and her family. During my university days as a politics student, when I was home visiting my own family, we would chat about the world’s ills and how … Continue reading

Textbooks As Manipulation (Part One)

The first real instances of educational literature we come across, by and large, come from our school textbooks. This is kind of obvious if you think about it; if you consider that most people are in school around the ages of five or six (lets not haggle over the large sections of the global population … Continue reading

How Low Can You Go?

This is only a short article. I think it’s an issue where you need to look at all the different arguments, which I can’t paraphrase well here. I passed on a link to an article yesterday regarding Starbucks in the UK. If you didn’t read it, it was a story on how they have paid … Continue reading

A Masterpiece You Say?

So art is a fickle thing. Recently you may have heard that a painting sold for £21,000,000 (if you didn’t, then yes, twenty-one million pounds), a rather large a mount of money. It was a painting by a chap named Gerhard Richter called Abstraktes Bild. There are certain words that spring to mind when I … Continue reading

Name Calling and Godwin’s Law

In light of world events. Recession, Greek bailouts, American elections, uh… stuff, etc, there has been a lot of comparisons to Hitler. This is ridiculous. Please stop it. You’re making small children and animals cry. Angela Merkel and Barak Obama, and countless other people (yes, even George W. Bush) are nothing like Hitler. Using this … Continue reading

Buy Now, Smile Later

I was in a shopping centre/mall recently. A big one. An expensive one. A very strangely unhappy one. It had sweet scent of leather and cold hard cash. And this was interesting for me. Now, I would like to stress first off that this is not an anti-capitalist rant, or anything like that. Maybe a … Continue reading

YES

Fucking yes. http://hackneyhipsterhate.tumblr.com/post/791630426/claptonhousepartycunts That is all.

I am the 1% (Who can see beyond the fun of being a hippie)

Whilst whoring it up with StumbleUpon I was taken to a Daily Kos article expressing the author’s distaste over the people who obviously don’t understand the Occupy [enter city here] movement. And irony of ironies, what do I see? Someone missing the point! Now, maybe it’s because it’s a website dedicated to American ‘liberals’ (I … Continue reading

More Kindred Spirits?

Now, you will know by now that we fucking hate hipsters. Any accidental hipsters must go through a thorough screening process before they talk to us. They must be cleansed. Real bone fide hipsters must go through a firey building wearing nothing but a moustache, riding a fixed-gear bike we doused in petrol only minutes … Continue reading

Get Down From That Horse

Ever heard of a place called Xinjiang? It’s kind of a large place. Pretty big, pretty empty too. Ok, what about Tibet? Now, I know you’ve heard of that. Big place, pretty empty. Actually, what about Uyghurs? Have you heard of them? Nope. Hmm. Interesting. So Xinjiang and Tibet have a few things in common … Continue reading
