Paradise Lost, Revisited — 12 Comments

  1. “In my opinion he’s probably one of the best political speakers around today.)”

    But not good enough to stop the bloke behind him nodding off it seems…

  2. He didn’t look particularly animated, did he? πŸ™‚ However, he did applaud after Farage finished. He had a UK flag in front of him, but I’ve no idea who he is.

    He probably curses Farage for his part in derailing the gravy train. Nice cushy number, gold-plated pension, huge expense account, all going tits-up because of Brexit.

  3. Speaking of conspiracy…and I dunno why, but the name Nigel Farage makes me think of Nick Pope and Nick Redfern.
    Nick Pope (Journalist) –
    Nick Redfern –
    I must say tho, your comment about Nigel Farage being a “fearless” public speaker kinda caught my eye, as those within “the conspiracy/conspiratorial realms” always seem to speak with authority about whatever it is that they are speaking about.

    I don’t know anything about this current whatever it is. But I can say that I see some potential for cleverness with respect to “people digging into personal lives”, and who is doing that digging and where.
    EX: 1. Political “leaders” start removing citizen liberties and freedom(s).
    2. Citizens organize their own “activist” group(s), and retaliate, removing political liberties and freedom(s) from politicians and their groups.
    3. Political leaders, politicians, governmental entities, whatever, are now free to make whatever assumptions and assertions that they choose, and can/will do so effectively since they were one step ahead from the onset of putting this plan into motion.

    Maybe it’s just my twisted thinking, or maybe it’s just my having a shade of experience of reading history…but there has been some nasty shit transpiring in certain parts of the world. Iran. Iraq. Lybia. Egypt. The Philippines. South/Central America. Africa. To think that there are not people in “The West” taking notes and learning lessons from these goings on seems…odd.

    Thanks for the read. πŸ™‚

  4. I’d not heard of either of the writers you mention. I tend to be somewhat sceptical about the UFO phenomena, although I don’t dismiss the idea that there may well be other intelligent life out there. I just don’t see why they would make multiple clandestine visits to this planet. I would have thought that if they exist, have faster than light space travel and are aware of the existence of the planet Earth in all its dystopian glory, they would have either 1) Confined their observations to study from a suitably large distance; 2) Made themselves known to us via some sort of communication; 3) Taken over the planet by force; or 4) Just blown the whole place to kingdom come, following the precautionary principle so beloved of our massed ranks of ‘experts’.

  5. “He probably curses Farage for his part in derailing the gravy train.”

    For all my dislike of Brexshite and my distrust of Farage-seller-out-of-the-nation-and-it’s-smokers , I begin to think he should have been put in charge of Brexshite. For all his faults he understands trade and money somewhat. He would not be making the UK economically untouchable for the rest of the world, which seems to be PMT.May/Davis’s goal atm. Who in their right mind is going to want to sign any kind of trade deal with us now? It’s embarrassing.

  6. Excellent piece Nisakiman.

    Many of my friends in my own age group have been experiencing an unsettling sense of dread over the last ten to fifteen years without being able to point to any one thing. In the last few months when I returned to these conversations, each to a man, (or woman), sighed and responded that it has all gone too far for us to rescue the situation and so, bad times are coming and we had better just prepare to endure.

    Soros etc are just a part of that.

  7. Yet there are signs of rebellion stirring, John. Both Brexit and Trump are manifestations of the growing dissatisfaction with the status quo. Here’s hoping, anyway! πŸ™‚
