Practical ways to combat the database state

As each day passes, a new rule, a new policy, a new law encroaches further into our private lives, private property and private spaces.

The creeping communism that has become the norm of our Fabian inspired governments (yes all of them, Red Tories, Communitarians, Nudge, Progressives, Fabians, Social Democrats, Christian Democrats, New Labour, Socialists.. call them what you will, they are all the same) encroaches upon the private person and employs ever more quietly repressive measures. Every day the state claims ownership of your private life.

The current government for all its promises of rolling back the database state and reclaiming our sovereignty from the EU have spectacularly failed to deliver, by claiming more of your personal life and giving more sovereignty away.

Only today the state is claiming ownership of the details of your bank accounts, not because it needs the information, but to cover up the mess that HMRC is in in paying out too much or paying the wrong people. It is a situation that Lenin himself would be proud of.

So how do you protect yourself from an ever intrusive state?

This is not anything to do with things to hide, but simply old fashioned privacy about things over which the state has no entitlement, to fight back and say no more.

The state machine is being run by databases. Databases are only as good as the information that is put into them. So limit the information and starve the beast, both of money and information.

Practical ways to combat state intrusion is to deny them the information in the first place, or to constantly change that information once it is there. (However, Never lie, that would be deceptive and could amount to fraud). And remember, this has nothing to do with ‘security’ and everything to do with protecting what is yours and your privacy.


Cash is virtually untraceable, so as you use cash to buy your clothes, food, petrol etc there is not the usual electronic record of you doing so. This will screw with the historical tracking databases that follow your spending patterns and stops the state machine from building a profile of you and your money. (notice I said your money, not their money)


All the reward card schemes have to by law report into the Treasury. Every time you purchase something using your Nectar Card, Tesco Loyalty Card etc the taxman knows exactly what you have been spending, and on what. It was originally introduced by agreement between big corporates and Gordon Brown so that HMRC could match income vs spending, and is used extensively in HMRC prosecutions.

Is your privacy worth more than the pennies you get back?


Water, Electricity, Gas, Mobile phone, etc. The bill comes with a payment slip. Use it to pay with cash at the local bank or post office, take back control of your payments and cancel those Direct Debits.


There are items for which paying via credit card are almost now compulsory. Hiring a car, booking hotels. Pre-paid credit cards are becoming more popular in the UK anyway with about 40,000 applications per quarter. If you are still concerned about HMRC spend tracking, try applying for a German or Dutch card, which you can do using the EU SEPA rules.


Every state database uses several criteria to track us. Primarily that is based upon your name and date of birth. There is little you can do about your date of birth, but using Common Law you can change your name and call yourself whatever you wish perfectly legally providing it is not for the purposes of fraud. Whilst you will have to inform various companies and government departments of this change, (the list in the link will show you how many databases it will disrupt) it will take several months for the databases to update & coordinate. You can then decide to live with that or even change your name again…even back to your original name.


One of the most prolific data gathering mechanisms is the electronic travel card, whether for train or buses, especially in the metropolitan areas, things like Oyster Cards and the Scottish Travel Cards which constantly add data to the profiling of your movements and spending patterns.

I am sure that many of you will come up with even more practical ideas to keep your profile on ‘the grid’ as low as possible, and for those of you who want to move into the legal civil disobedience space, then there are are 198 methods of non-violent protest and persuasion.


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… One man alone doing this, such as John Hurst, and the Common Law will be ignored, thousands or hundreds of thousands will either be listened to, or we will see the true repressive nature of government.


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!!

The past 30 years have seen us giving up freedoms for security. It is a false security because it allows the Government to become the deliverer of a form of terrorism over its own people. It is the way in which this government have imposed the EU Corpus Juris over our own Common Law, and I do not consent.

It is your right to tell the state to get stuffed, and starving the beast of money and information is the only way you will get them off your back and reclaim what is yours, your privacy, your personal information, your life.

To sum up:

Regardless of what Stalin taught you, the needs of the individual ALWAYS trump the needs of the “State”

    Already started doing this. HMRC can get stuffed, so can the Banks and council as well as the TV Licence. All Cancelled – Fantastic feeling and no fear!
    Money in the Bank will be cashed out in the next 2 weeks.

    Ian, just out of interest, is there any further news with John Hurst’s case? Has he released a statement since 5th?

    • DM, good stuff. Living off the grid as much as possible has its own rewards.

      Have asked JH for an update or statement, as there are many interested to know where this goes from here.

    They were influential in shaping the attitudes of the general public concerning societal problems and how to solve them. They did their best to keep the general public in the west ignorant of what was taking place under the totalitarian regimes. They spun their web of lies while millions perished according to “solutions” they themselves had recommended as necessary in order for socialism to succeed. Are they not accessories to mass murder before, during, and after the fact? George Watson concludes “The Lost Literature of Socialism” with an invitation to historians of literature and ideas to take an interest in socialism, ‘if they are bold enough to look at what was once written and honest enough to record what they find in unvisited texts’.

    Time someone did!!

    Some good advice for keeping a low profile, but wrt living really off grid, where do you get money from if you stop allowing it to be paid into a bank account? After a while what you have runs out and no normal employer is going to pay cash these days. You would have to be small scale self employed or living from savings in order to make this work long term.

    How long does it take after stopping paying tax for the authorities to come looking for you?
