Everyone claims to be afraid and fighting against fascism but what they don’t realise is just how close the UK is to fascism. One core belief of fascism is productivity and profit over the interest of the people, and that is exactly what we have, the needs of corporations are given priority over the needs of the people, so in essence humanity has been removed.
The UK is constantly putting profits ahead of people, no one wants “ fracking” in their backyard, people have been out in droves protesting against it, yet it has been given the go ahead by the politicians to the queen! People were outraged about the NSA and GCHQ spying scandal yet that has seemed to have increased, and the way in which these agencies are getting all our details is by working with the corporations that handle our information on a daily basis like : Google, Facebook etc. To my knowledge the very definition of fascism is the collusion between Government and corporations.
The other way this society is becoming highly undemocratic is by limiting our access to (impartial) information and controlling our ability to voice our dissent. For example, the news media is a joke and the ones that are decent either get airtime when nobody is watching or they just get their funding pulled and ultimately cancelled.
This government has declared a war on journalism by deciding to lump investigative journalism with terrorism. Some people may think things like this will never happen in this country- oh yeah, because we’re so civilised!!! But has anyone ever seen any of the mainstream media?? They are so obviously scared to be critical of anything because they fear what will happen to the company if they’re critical of the government- tell me, how is that any different from the government of North Korea?!
Don’t you people how significant this is? If the population isn’t well informed they tend to make bad choices or become a very manipulated and malleable public that will believe anything. What do we have instead of a decent news media, we have a bunch of useless distractions- that’s right, let’s all forget the fact that we live in a cardboard box and barely have enough money to live on but let’s all cheer for prince George and the rest of the parasites.
Having a free and open media is essential for a democracy but then again.. we’re not a democracy, especially when we lable investigation journalist-who are doing a great service for the public as terrorists.
