Starve the beast

The Big Playhouse in Brussels is alive with actors this week. The play has been going on for some time, nigh on 60 years, and in this latest Act we watch our politicians playing to the house.

The storyline for this Act is the ever tightening net of EU control. Having already amassed most of Europe’s sovereignty, the big bully boys in Brussels are getting greedy and want another slice, this time its the money tree, but the little boys and girls are pretending that they want to keep it for themselves.

Hurrah yell their audiences, stick it to the big boys they urge them on. But secretly the little boys and girls know that if they dont hand it over they will be in big trouble with the people who really pull the strings, so they have to pretend to hold out just long enough for their audiences to sympathise when they finally give in.

This really is where the political actors will earn their Oscars this year.

But we all know what’s going to happen, we just hope against hope that one of them will throw the script away and ad lib for a while. Even though we are aware that the story line, the play and every detail of the script was written long before these actors came on the stage, we still hope that one of these actors will do a turn.

But if you don’t know or understand the play yet, my thanks to Vicki for supplying the essential reading material to bring you up to date.

“From the moment the organizer enters a community he lives, dreams… only one thing and that is to build the mass power base of what he calls the army. Until he has developed that mass power base, he confronts no major issues…. Until he has those means and power instruments, his ‘tactics’ are very different from power tactics. Therefore, every move revolves around one central point: how many recruits will this bring into the organization, whether by means of local organizations, churches, service groups, labor Unions, corner gangs, or as individuals.”

“Change comes from power, and power comes from organization.” p.113

“The first step in community organization is community disorganization. The disruption of the present organization is the first step toward community organization. Present arrangements must be disorganized if they are  to be displaced by new patterns…. All change means disorganization of the old and organization of the new.” p.116

His creed was set out in Rules for Radicals, which he dedicated to Lucifer, whom he called the “first radical”. For Alinsky, “change” was his mantra. Sound familiar? It was the slogan repeated incessantly by both Cameron and Obama. But what Alinsky meant was a Marxist revolution achieved by slow, incremental, Machiavellian means.

This had to be done through systematic deception, winning the trust of the naively idealistic middle-class by using the language of morality to conceal an agenda designed to destroy it. And the way to do this, he said, was through “people’s organisations” set up by community organisers.

The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.

Red Tories, Communitarians, Nudge, Progressives, Fabians, Social Democrats, Christian Democrats, New Labour, Socialists.. call them what you will, they are all the same character in the play.

The take their power from fear, and they fund it with your money.

There is only one way to bring this play to an end, we have to starve the actors. The play is all about money and control. Without the money there is no control. So to defeat the beast you have to starve it of money before it takes everything you own. It really is that simple.


Income Tax, Corporation Tax, Council Tax. Just refuse to pay, or just take a month off work, if everyone booked their holidays at the same time and took a month off work that’s all it would take, no government would survive a month with no income. Want to learn more


Stop Bank is a call for Europe-wide massive withdrawal of funds from banks and the closing of savings accounts.

This is the first spontaneous action group of its kind, using blogs and facebook in order to protect them from media, political spin and news corruption to liberate us from the slavery that is being imposed on us by big business, international banks and corporations. The elite are not listening anyway.

Therefore, on 7 December withdraw your money from the banks!

We need to build as much pressure to make politicians realize that their power only exists today only because we tolerate it. But we can also change the rules!

As there is only about £44 Billions worth of notes in circulation, it would only require every adult in the UK to withdraw £1,000 to bankrupt all the banks. So whether you’re part of this or not, it might be a good idea to take all your money out anyway. Look after number 1!!

    Ok Ian, I’m a pensioner. I have income from both a private and corporate pension. Both are taxed before it arrives in my bank. How, if at all, can I stop paying tax. because I am livid at Cameron’s termerity? If I could get my hands on the tax I have paid this month in £20 notes I would joyfully stuff them down the stupid man’s throat.

    • Sean,
      I personally find the idea of taxing pensions repulsive, considering you paid for it out of taxed income. It is clear that not every element of the public will be able to escape the compulsory deductions.

      But you could put the squeeze on the banks, and join the campaign to withdraw money from the banks and only use cash.

      Germans plan to storm the banks and withdraw their money

  4. screamingmad says:

    A stupendous and original idea.
    I suggest, that as one is limited to what can be taken from ones account then tell the bank that you want the account closed. That way the funds must be transferred to somewhere else, but if another account is not available then cash has to be given to the account holder.
    What a wheeze…..

    Sadly, this would be sawing off the branch we sit on. If all the banks are bust how does anyone get paid, seeing that notes & coin only account for 3% of the money in the system? I’d suggest doing this more gradually, rewarding the virtuous organisations with increasing deposits and slowly running down holdings at the crim banks. Let’s not have a Mayan collapse – we haven’t a jungle to run into.

    • I hear what you say, but is it such a jungle.

      As banks collapse, people, businesses and traders will take on a whole new mind set.
      Prices would tumble, simply because traders would have to deal in cash, companies would want paying in cash so would offer discounts on their goods, wages in cash – cash in hand, no tax etc etc.

      Forget all the multi billion £ ‘investments’, they would just stop, but the amount of cash & coin in circulation would probably be enough for people to survive with, and Govt would probably have to print real money in order to make up any shortfall.

      This crash is going to happen anyway, but at least this way we dont get the banks being in control of it when it does come.

    • I quit teaching in 1989 because I wasn’t prepared to put up with the crap and bullying, and it cost me financially – but who knows what carrying on would have cost me?

      But what has it cost the kids in the meantime. It could be said that you did what was right for you, but left the kids to the mercy of those who now feed their heads with ‘rights’, politics and green propaganda.

      I get what you are trying to say, that we should be responsible for our own actions, but… if we had another 20-30 years to turn back the tide I might agree, but by then under the present course set by governments, I doubt anyone will be able to opt out…

  7. Sackerson says:

    Ian, I came back to do some teaching – for money this time – in 2000, now 3 days per week. If the teachers aren’t made to transmit one form of political drivel they’ll be forced to transmit another. It’s always gone on – I can remember a sort of trader’s day simulation put on in my primary school in Kent in the 1950s – presumably to show to some visiting schools inspector or business type, and presumably at the time when the Tories got back into power. Nothing came before it, nothing after – another stunt put on by the teachers to please their new masters.

    • So where then lies the answer? Do we limit the teaching of our kids the staples, 3 Rs, Gen Science, History & Geography (physical) and leave idealogical subjects to specialist colleges.

      As for morals, sex, the value of money and lifestyle I believe that those should be subject areas that parents should be responsible for, rather than a state (all knowing) that would see us only as economic units.

      Sometimes Liberty does start at home, but equally there are times when those who seek liberty need to stand together to challenge a larger threat.

  8. Sackerson says:

    1st & 2nd paras, agreed, tho’ history is loaded too. 3rd para – problem is our reresentatives no longer represent us, and that is a dangerous crisis.

    • “problem is our reresentatives no longer represent us, and that is a dangerous crisis.”

      and that is the purpose of the protests, to gain their undivided attention.

      I am the last person who would want to see this country brought to its knees, I am not looking for anarchy & chaos, but the politicians and bankers must be made to understand that the public does have the power to turn the money tap off unless they start to listen.. and to represent rather than rule.

  9. Sackerson says:

    Understood, but the consequences of a mass bank run could be very serious, as this German paper points out: Panicking the system is a good way to destroy civic freedom.

    • Yes it could be very serious. But.. do we play by their rules where they will tax, control and take everything anyway, or do we get in first and wake the politicians up.

      As I said in the article, the play is all about money and control. Without the money there is no control. So to defeat the beast you have to starve it of money before it takes everything you own.

  10. Sackerson says:

    You can starve it without ripping its throat out. Make the moves more gradually, is what I’d suggest.

  11. Elena says:


    This is an excellent idea which I have already implemented. Apart from a small amount needed for a couple of direct debits, every month I withdraw all my money and pay for everything with cash.

    Let me tell you though, it is not easy getting your savings out of a bank. Anything over £2000 is subject to several days wait and with some banks even more than £500 is subjected to delay. I think many people believe they can just go in, close the account and walk away with their money. Not so.

    Also if banks get the merest hint that too many people are suddenly withdrawing cash, they will shut their doors and online facilities will go down. There is not enough cash in existence to pay everyone what they are due. They fear a bank run more than anything else because it would expose the fraudulent nature of the financial system.

    Apart from that I like your idea. Money talks when money walks. Perhaps a softly, softly, sneaky approach might do more damage and not alert them to what’s going on.
